    @yellowmoose

    I was wondering if there were any new items Kenzie recently received or bought that stood out to you like hand bags, jewelry, clothes, shoes....is she usually dolled up with hair freshly colored, nails done?
    (eyelash extensions have already been discussed)

    Does she carry cash around or pay for friend's meals etc when out and about?

    I was curious about other dating apps like sugar babies where girls date older men that spoil them in return for their company etc.

    MOO and speculation only

    Catching up on posts, but these apartments in Murray Utah back up against the Jordan River and the Jordan River Trail - this particular part of the river/trail system contains large swaths of open area...

    I've thought the same. It seems bizarre that she would let them know she made it safely if she had the intention of cutting off contact and "taking a break" per se. If that were her intention (which I do not think it is) it would seem to me that she would just take off after that plane ride and not reach out to her parents.

    Yeah... I'm not liking any of this.

    Mainly because I see little to no reason that the woman thus described, would voluntarily be in any type of situation considered "good"; and yet not have considered that she should be in touch with a friend or family member.

    Not trying to be a pessimist here but it seems like a clear case of Occam's Razor. If ML wasn't talking to people because she was, let's carry this to its most outrageous conclusion, not being in touch with people for a happy reason, like if she eloped with some near-stranger without telling her family; only the most callous person in the world would fail to reach out to friends and family and assure them that she is OK.

    I fear very much that this means she is someplace where she is either unable or unavailable to reach out to said friends and family members. :(

    It's not against the LDS religion to date outside of their members. It's not something they advise but it doesn't break any rules per say.

    Wondering if the timing matched up exactly (or close to) when she landed because anyone could have sent that text.

    Yes, I had brought that up a couple times, and in one good response a poster mentioned something about perhaps Kenzie was possibly “buying time”...that of course leans towards the theory of a voluntary disappearance. I hope this is the case but I lean more in the direction of her being in trouble vs. not being in trouble.

    Again LE’s lack of emphasizing the potentially endangered aspect, as opposed to how we’ve seen in other cases, again leads me to believe they are doing their own investigation and do not want to tip their hand. Jmo.

    This is something that law enforcement would know.

    Kenzie’s parents have a record of when they received that text, and LE has a record of that Lyft trip.

    If it was sent AFTER Lyft dropped her off, then it’s entirely possible that she did not send it.

    Right now though, I’m convinced she did send it herself.

    Thank you! Just wondering if she is planning to be on campus in the fall, or is looking at big changes in employment and possibly moving house in the next couple of months.

    Do you know if she lives in an apartment or in her sorority house?

    Thanks I was thinking about when Jodi Arias was dating her murdered victim poor Travis Alexander who was Mormon. Killer Jodi went through what ever you do to be a Mormon I guess she thought Travis would marry her if she did. I know the other GF’s he had were Morman so I wasn’t sure if it was frowned upon.

    No, she doesn't live in the sorority house. For the time that I knew her she never has. She does have what I would call a difficult major (kinesiology) so retaking a class or two or taking longer to graduate definitely isn't unheard of. Especially with taking summer classes.

    Here’s my pie chart for how I think this could turn out, JMO and MOO of course.

    60% - MP (missing person) has encountered FP

    30% - Voluntary Disappearance / Alive

    1o% - Suicide

    (Somewhere around there, anyway)

    I’m at about 80% voluntary, and 20% foul play.

    Right now, law enforcement should have evidence of something nefarious happening, if it exists.

    At the very least, they should have suspicions that elevate the seriousness of this whole thing.

    Alarm bells should be going off, and their words and actions should reflect this (I’d expect a press conference).

    I’m not seeing that.

    I still think they have evidence to the contrary, and it’s just a matter of figuring out where she is.

    If not, they’ve completely dropped the ball.

    I think so too. IMO LE is deliberating holding back info so they don’t compromise the investigation. I hope I’m wrong but I’ve had the feeling that foul play was involved from the beginning. I’m afraid Kenzie got caught up in something that took a dangerous turn.

    Interestingly and side note....one of the starters of #callherdaddy was from Utah:

    Sofia Franklyn is 27 years old and grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. Although Utah is known for its heavy Mormonism, Sofia is not a Mormon. She began her career by writing for Barstool Sports, which eventually landed her creating the Call Her Daddy podcast.

    @yellowmoose Do you know how Kenzie has paid for her education? Student loans, scholarships, family, etc.?

    I’m so sorry your friend is missing. You’ll find a supportive group here at WS.
