Another message from a family member

The cousin of a young man missing since 2004 (very few details) wrote to me to ask why he was on my site “besides the fact that he is a missing person.” Which made me feel kind of sad for some reason. Yet it’s true enough that oftentimes an MP must be “special” in some way to get media attention.

Anyway, I wrote back to say I didn’t discriminate what cases I posted and the young man was on my site precisely because he was missing, along with nearly 9,000 other people.

    Details, esp. sensational ones, often bring more attention or make the case. I don’t think the cousin understands that you bring attention to everyone (or damn near to it) missing, details or not. I hope that family thinks the MP is special enough to keep after the case. As for the “besides”. This is a MP site. Nuff said :). Hope everyone had a great and Happy Thanksgiving.

      My Thanksgiving was okay. My abusive brother didn’t show up, thank goodness. I can barely stand to be in the same room with him anymore.

        Well, good is good, right? Is this the one you buy viruses for every year (btw, my fave gift EVER)? In which case, it must have been much calmer for you.

    When I first found your site, I was wondering how a MP from my home town ended up on your website. Then after looking around your site, I realized that you probably try to get most MP cases on your website regardless of the details.

      Ah, the ol’ “floating abortion clinic” theory, tailor-made for a Fox “exposé.” And here I thought it was the mafia/horses/horse mafia/Tri Color Stables angle that provided the best solution. Which it does, but three girls + a boat + a lake obviously points (cough-cough) to botched abortions. Like, whatever. Old geezer has researched it for nigh on to 50 years, but on the wrong path, old granddad, on the wrong – if titillating – path, says me.

        I agree. I think the horse connection makes more sense than the “floating abortion clinic” *cough cough* *wink wink*. BUT I am surprised, since that theory has been floated per say before, that it would be a main story now. Unless it is a trick to get someone out….which would fail.
