    Bumping for Dashad.
    Just noticed a glaring coincidence- Dashad went missing on November 20th and Transgender Day of Remembrance is on Nov 20th, fwiw.

    Search for Sage Smith now a homicide investigation
    The Daily Progress
    March 27, 2017


    "More than four years ago, Sage Smith took a walk near West Main Street in Charlottesville on her way to meet an acquaintance and was never seen again.

    On Wednesday, Charlottesville police said they are now investigating the case as a homicide.

    <snip>

    Charlottesville police reclassified the case in December but waited to release the information publicly out of consideration for Smith&#8217;s family, Lt. Steve Upman said. After a shuffle in positions and roles at the police department, detectives also wanted time to take a fresh look at the case. There are no new searches planned, he said.

    <snip>

    Police said Wednesday that the reclassification means the case is now a criminal investigation, which opens up resources outside the department &#8212; such as the United States Marshals Service &#8212; and could add weight to investigative tools such as search warrants.

    'A missing person is not a criminal case, so we do not have the same investigative leeway,' Upman said. 'By moving it to a criminal matter, it affords us not only additional resources outside the agency, but [also] provides more opportunities to search phone records and computers, that kind of thing.'

    'That was not the reason to change it, but those are opened up,' he added."

    I've just finished watching the Disappeared episode on Sage. They ended on the note that Erik McFadden is considered a POI and has not surfaced in 5 years. Is he considered a missing person?

    He is/was a person of interest, but he is still missing too. Wondering if he may have also been a victim, imo, speculation.

    Yea, I think the consensus is that Erik McFadden prob did not end up meeting with Sage the night she disappeared, because he was on his computer/not in the same area as Sage. But I don't think LE has made it clear whether McFadden is considered a missing person as well, or they've located him, when clearing him of involvement in Sage's disappearance.

    Did you watch the episode of "Disappeared?" At the end of the show, one of Sage's roommates said the third roommate (the one who used Sage's credit card) and McFadden were with Sage at a club the night of the disappearance. He is again a suspect. I wish the roommate would confess everything they know. They are hiding a lot of info. Blessings for Sage's family.

    Last updated May 20, 2018; picture added, distinguishing characteristics, clothing/jewelry description and details of disappearance updated.

    "Smith is a 2011 graduate of Charlottesville High School, and took cosmetology classes. She was raised by her grandmother for much of her childhood, then returned to her mother's care, then spent time in foster care after her mother was deemed unfit. She had recently moved in with roommates in an apartment on Harris Street.

    Smith's disappearance is now being investigated as a homicide. McFadden isn't the only person of interest; one of Smith's roommates was caught using her food stamp card after her disappearance, and another friend was seen wearing a locket belonging to Smith, although the woman claimed her boyfriend gave it to her. Smith's case remains unsolved."
