    Hi Curiousobserver,
    As Liltexans pointed out, the members are responsible for their posts. In fact, website owners are protected by a federal law from being sued for what other people say on their site.
    Of course anyone can be sued for any reason but as far as Websleuths being worried about getting sued I can assure you that is not the reason for our terms of service rules.

    Basically we keep the names of people not named by the police off the forum because it is the right thing to do.
    Can you imagine if you are innocent of a crime and all of a sudden your name and all your info is all over the internet being accused of a crime? It could easily ruin your life.
    As owner I have the moral responsibility to try and do what is right.

    We could allow more rumors, salacious details, more digging into background of those associated with a possible perp, all these kinds of things, and to boot, if we allowed all of these things our revenue would go up substantially... but we can't...it is not the right thing to do.

    We sometimes fail but we do try our best to allow an open discussion along with doing what is right by our fellow human beings.

    MOO and my speculation only but we may be looking at a friend-of-a-friend here.

    I don’t believe ML was heavily into drugs per se. But she was coming back to exams after a stressful week and may have been looking for a “study aid” of some sort. It’s very common. If so, she may have texted a friend from the airport who said, I know someone who can help you out.

    She could have contacted him, he gave her the park address for the meetup, and said he’d give her a lift home. And maybe she accepted the sketchy arrangement because they had a mutual friend.

    100% speculation and 100% MOO.

    ETA — another relevant quote...

    The owner of the home, who has lived there for a couple of years, previously lived in an apartment that is 0.2 miles away from Hatch Park in North Salt Lake, which is where Lueck was last seen. He has no criminal history in Utah, beyond some traffic citations.

    I'm so very sorry, @yellowmoose. This could be one of my children. In fact, my oldest daughter just had a layover in SLC Sunday evening and arrived in BZN at 2:00 a.m. Please know you and ML's family and friends are in my prayers. And yes - this WS group is amazing!

    According to this newscast, there was nobody renting the Airbnb during the time Mackenzie went missing. Just posting in case anyone was wondering if it could have been a guest that was staying there.

    It sounds like the homeowner will be named a suspect soon. IMO

    Just to recap for anyone looking for updates:
    1. THE LYFT DRIVER IS CLEARED. NOT A SUSPECT. NEVER WAS A SUSPECT.
    2. A house that happens to be used as an AirBNB is being searched
    3. The person who owns said house is being questioned BUT HAS NOT BEEN NAMED AS SUSPECT OR POI.
    4. The house that is being searched is completely unrelated to the "tip" someone posted about an AirBNB condo yesterday
    5. There is no indication as of yet that any of this is remotely related to the SB/SD lifestyle
    6. No person or persons of interest have been named at this time

    Everybody responds differently. For me, I never am able to understand sobbing parents in front of cameras clutching pictures of their children and begging for their return, wiping their tears and answering questions from a pack of hungry reporters. When I see that I always think that if it were my child, I wouldn't be able to face a mob like that and put my mug on the TV. But, that's just me. From being acquainted with her mother, she's a private person; can't imagine her in front of cameras like that. Can't imagine her grief right now.

    Back a few pages, Seattle1 posted that although there hasn't been a time announced, reporters thought it might be at 10 a.m. As of now, still waiting...

    This reminds me of the Arizona case of Michael & Tina Careccia buried in the b/yard. Night helicopter footage, tent, etc.
    Prayers for the family & friends.

    He lists himself as a author online and has a unusual name. Pic on SM website matches the pic of person on AirB&B and pic on back of book.

    Yes. I saw it. The mattress was a few days ago on Letgo and a box spring was listed on Facebook yesterday.

    I am so glad there are sites like this about the case. Sites trying to protect the innocent and keep the speculation out. SM is overrun with a lot of horrid stuff about anyone that may or may not be involved. I wish every station would carry the statements by the Utah domestic violence group. There are some things that are down right bullying.

    Yea - a real mastermind! Did any of the neighbors call LE regarding the fire? I sure would have called.

    completely agree. aside from drugs or some type of carpool situation to reach a destination (re friend of a friend/meeting others who are involved), the other logical park explanation, imo, is drama.

    doesnt even matter if this is a sd/sb relationship, bf, male or female friend etc - a park at 3 am is a place many would assume they could meet without roommates, spouses etc overhearing/overseeing them to talk through some type of issue. our suspect may presented the park to Mackenzie with this logic knowing that from there, they would be isolated and he would be in control the rest of the evening
