Thank you Hilkka. Great response. Isn't it funny we wrote about
this same sheriff and how he is the no investigate department
way back when and voila! He despises both marines and women, so
it is not any surprise they were so slow to investigate this. Ed
Brown didn't know his name but I am SURE he could have gotten it
from her mother. Besides, why would they need a name before they
started a nationwide search for HER regardless? Sure it helps,
but they didn't need to 'connect the dots' to INITIATE a search
for a missing person.
When I lived in Jacksonville, I knew women that had been abused
by their marine husbands, that the marines cover their "own'
when it comes to abuse of a woman, and that makes me feel that
they would do the same regardless if she was in the marines or
not. (Ironically, I do know a marine who's wife supposedly
committed suicide, and ya can't help but wonder...)
Doesn't Sheriff Ed Brown seem to be awfully defensive? (Did you
see his interview with Nancy Grace??!! If you didn't watch it I
am sure she has the transcript at her site online at CNN
Headlines. We do things differently that you he said and Nancy
said, we sure do! And then he said something about Nancy not
being a professional, and he just couldn't answer a question
with a yes or no answer.) And that part that no one had reason
to believe she would be in danger from him and that they had
a "friendly" relatiohip" YET we find out she did indeed have
restraining orders on him really gets me.
Because her phone was found at the base, isn't that the initial
scene of the crime? It appears to me that he may have kidnapped
her, which would make it a felony murder regardless of NC laws
not having the child considered as a second murder.
Question: Did they have a handwriting analysis on the note she
left? It could be true, but I do wonder. It wouldn't be any
wonder she would write a note that she was fed up with the
marines, etc and wanted to take off -- feeling perhaps they were
not much help or were not taking it seriously and then shame on
her 'mother' saying she is a pathological liar! Is it any wonder
as she had no support system?? But if she took the $$ out
herself and got the bus ticket then it makes me believe that she
may have very well been kidnapped... which like I said would be
felony murder-- murder committed during the commission of a
Oh yeah, and here's another thing: Didn't Brown offer $500 of
his own money for information to her whereabouts?? And isn't it
*he* that found her by a divining rod? hmmm....
Oh, he had a 4 hour headstart, not 2 hours. How convenient, huh?
And it is weird that no information was exchanged to the
sheriff's department seeing as she lived off base, and so did
he. Doesn't that make the Onslow County part of her restraining
order? What areas did the restraining order include? Just the
base?!!! If they live off base, it automatically goes to
the "civilian world" although "civil" is debatable!!
