So you agree with my theory of what happened? Here is a link to my post exploring the theory that Tyler killed himself: http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sh...ukilteo-19-April-2016&p=12719515#post12719515
I very sadly 100% agree, but I believe he jumped off of the "steel bridge". He wouldn't be the first. I am from Shelton, and this is what we used to call it. For someone to travel from out of the area to that location, that would be the only main attraction around, and his behavior unfortunately screams suicide to me.
New FB post for 2nd Anniversary...horrifying that people try contacting t he family out of curiosity.
Ps.. I would love to see this story on "Disappeared". A new season starts soon.

Tyler Christensens disappearance has gained attention on social media recently, even though the Edmonds-area teen has been missing for two years.
An article published one year ago about Christensen has been one of the most popular stories on The Daily Heralds website since April 4. Page views have come in from all over the country, mostly through Google searches. For days it was the No. 1 item, and was still in the top 10 this week.
Its sad enough that the Christensen family has to deal with Tyler's disappearance but the death of his sister is another tragedy to deal with and she died two day after Tyler's 19th birthday.
Emily's obituary doesn't give a cause of death so I don't want to speculate how she died but I hope wasn't related to Tyler's disappearance but regardless how she died she was way too young to die.
Sadly, it sounds like, according to extended family, it was related. I think it was well-established when Tyler disappeared that he was very close with his sisters. His sister Liz seemed to be the family representative for their social media and internet presence during the searches. But clearly, his absence weighed heavily on his sister Emily, too.
I think we could speculate all day on any connection to Tyler's disappearance. Perhaps depression and/or anxiety runs in their family. There are, of course, darker possibilities. I don't think it is fair to air that here. This is, however, a very sad reality for many families of missing children. The incredible strain on families can not be doubted.

And, another note on this case...the website formerly maintained by the family and linked to on their Help Find FB page is now defunct. The domain is for sale.
