    Was KL out of town in April? - that's when the man was approached about the job.

    ETA - the nature of their relationship to each other has NOT been established.

    that makes a lot of sense actually. still confused why police didn't list her as missing until the 20th though. would that be because she's an adult so there's a certain waiting period in case she wanted to disappear intentionally, or just wanted to get away for a little while? how long do they usually wait? If welfare check request was made at 3AM on the 17th, then sometime after that on the 20th would've been at least 72 hours. Not sure at all what the protocol is though.

    If that were the case, it would be more logical to ask to meet in a well-lighted public place like a restaurant rather than a secluded park. I think she felt comfortable meeting with him. Just am not sure if it was because she knew him in person or felt comfortable with whatever app she used to contact/connect with him.

    This detail that a welfare check request was made at 3 AM on the 17th is inaccurate.

    I am former Army Officer (MOS 14A). If he was indeed an Army IT Specialist, it is most likely that his MOS was 25B. Normally, Battalions have a few of these Soldiers assigned to them in a supporting function as well as an Office or Senior NCO as head of that "shop". In my experience, the newer 25Bs were normally fairly intelligent (you need a higher ASVAB score for technical specialties), but fairly useless until the got the real on-the-job training that only experience can bring. Him not completing his initial commitment could be several things: disciplinary issues leading him to be chaptered out, a medical issue that made him permanently non-deployable and he was Med-Boarded out, failure to meet standards to maintain appropriate security clearance, extreme personal hardship (not likely), or becoming a single parent with no one to take your kid if you deploy. I'm gonna make a guess and go with medical or he had disciplinary issues. I find it interesting that they are referring to him as a "former Soldier" rather than a Veteran. I think thats the media doing what it does.

    When a Soldier or former Soldier is arrested and its a national story, the FB and other social media groups that I belong to will light up with all the Soldiers who went to Basic, AIT, or were in the same unit with him. What they have to say will tell a better story than his DD214.

    <modsnip> There is no way that happened and then he kept the fire burning for the days it would require to cremate her remains and nobody noticed.

    I can't find the post made on one of these threads (which number?) that provided a link to local MSM and the comments under it. There was a woman who cleans those condos insisting that she may have seen KL leave a unit while this woman was waiting to go in and clean. She did call the tip into police, several times as I recall. I bring it up here because if it was KL, then she was seen on the 19th and hope exists that she could still be alive.

    Creeeepy. So we have a budding serial killer possibly? Or weirdo who wanted to capture a woman to be his play toy?

    Terrifying.

    Ita! They dont make arrests when someone went willingly, and is alive!

    Sadly, it's going to be very bad for KL, and her belived family.

    My hearts, and prayers are with them all.

    Well and then at 4:05AM the police "launch an investigation". Timeline of missing student Mackenzie Lueck's movements in Salt Lake City before disappearance

    Now maybe that just means the police received the call. It seems extraordinary and hard to believe that the police would actually start to investigate when someone who is healthy and of sound faculties has been incommunicado for a mere 2 hours. 99.99999% of the time the person would be fine, maybe just fallen asleep or over at Denny's getting a grand slam or something.

    IMO, This lines up with what Tara, the woman who cleaned the house, has stated. She said he talked about a crazy ex girlfriend he'd just broken up with in March when she met him. I have wondered myself if he had been seeing Kenzie in some manner. Possible?

    MOO.

    She wasn’t a call girl. A SB is not a call girl.

    Zhazhaha, it states that 2 men were initially taken into custody but that only one is now actually detained. It could be the other man as the article says its not clear.
