    WESTON -- The silence in the Bendale area said it all, as hope fades and thoughts turn grim, for missing Aliayah Lunsford, 3.
    "It's taken a huge toll. This is not something that happens in our community," Weston resident Tammy Raines said.

    "It's been an atrocious situation," Lewis County Sheriff Mike Gissy said.

    The community doesn't know where evidence will lead officials, but it is doing what it knows how to do.

    "Pray for the best. That's all," Raines said.

    The FBI wouldn't give a time frame for arrests, nor would Killeen speculate if the charges would be filed in state or federal court.

    "The FBI doesn't have suspects but we do have a small universe of peoople we are looking at," FBI Special Agent Jeff Killeen said.

    Officials said they are considering it be to one of three crimes, homicide (sic), abduction or concealment.

    Could the small universe or people include drug dealers that are owed money?

    As far as I know, Paulette, I have not seen that reported in MSM so I cannot speculate further.

    In general, in cases where it is found that that sort of lifestyle is involved, debts of that nature are always something LE looks at.

    Bringing over from previous thread http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=150401&page=17 Post # 801 for discussion:

    Paulette answered:
    "Really? Then I expect to hear of an arrest today. He's an officer of the court and is not allowed to lie or withhold this knowledge from LE. If the FBI asks him, he best tell who and where.

    By the way, it is a federal crime to lie to the FBI."

    &#8226; The &#8220;client,&#8221; for purposes of the privilege, is one who seeks legal advice. The privilege
    applies to confidential communications between client and lawyer irrespective of whether a
    formal retainer agreement is signed, irrespective of whether attorneys fees have been paid, and
    irrespective of whether litigation has begun or is contemplated.

    A tip from a reliable source isn't a client. Lawyers don't receive tips and then run to the media and announce it. That would automatically break the privilege between client and lawyer. I can't imagine an officer of the court blabbing to the world that he has confidential information and isn't going to tell anyone.

    A small universe of people yet nobody can identify the last time they saw Aliayah alive. I am seriously doubting that Aliayah may ever be found bless her little heart. Hopefully I am wrong.

    Thanks Dr.Fessel, I just hate having to go back and forth between the old thread and new for links we were already discussing so I thought I would post some of the coverage about today's events here so we could save some running back n forth :)

    My prayers are with all who are concerned for this little punkin tonight. I am off to tuck in a tired 7 year old.

    An attorney saying that he received a tip is not breaking attorney client privilege, IMO. The tipster may have given the attorney permission to say he had reason to believe a family member was involved (paraphrased) but not to publish the tipsters name. In the event a subpoena is handed down I would be willing to bet that the tipster will very quickly become the attorney's client.

    Just my opinion. Open to discussion as part of my personal learning process.

    State vs Federal charges - other than moving a kidnap victim across state lines, I don't know of any other Federal charges that could be applied. Actually I am not even sure about what I just typed.

    What other instances would Federal charges apply? Would concealment be a Federal offense for instance?

    Regarding the iReport, IMO, it's sensationalized and factually incorrect. According to MSM sources, the three possibilities being considered are homicide, abduction and concealment. Homicide is not the same as murder; it's much broader, and leaves open the possibility of many scenarios other than murder.

    Concealment is the act of refraining from disclosure especially an act by which one prevents or hinders the discovery of something; a cover-up. It is an affirmative act intended or known to be likely to keep another from learning of a fact of which s/he would otherwise have learned.
