A thought

I wonder how Danielle Mouton came to be wearing a Cartier watch at the time of her disappearance: they are NOT cheap and, given Danielle’s age and lifestyle, it seems highly unlikely that she could have afforded it. The likeliest explanation I can think of is that a client bought it for her. It could also been a knockoff, I suppose, but even those run well up into the hundreds.

You see details a that, by themselves, must tell a story, only you don’t know what it is. Full dentures in a fourteen-year-old, for example. A swastika tattoo on someone who may be Jewish. That sort of thing.

    One thought is that is says Danielle is “involved with drugs and prostitution” so maybe she was actually a drug deal/pimp as opposed to user/streetwalker and as a result had no shortage of funds? Just a guess. Or maybe she could have bought one cheap from a pawn shop or swapmeet that was in really crappy condition (scratched up, doesn’t keep time right, …)?

      Oops “Drug dealer” not “drug deal”.

    This is not as strange as what you’ve mentioned, but I’ve been curious as to why Heather Kullorn shaved her eyebrows prior to her disappearance. I barely plucked my eyebrows at that age. I don’t know why, but I always thought that was a bit odd.

      It is a bit odd, I agree.

      It was a bit of a trend at that time. Chloe Sevigny shaved her eyebrows in the late 90s.

      I assumed maybe she tried to thin them out and overdid it, so she just shaved them off and started over. Just a guess because a girl I went to high school with did that.

    One of my friends told me once that he knew Jewish white supremacists. And my fiance actually knew HISPANIC white supremacists in high school.

      I actually once knew an Asian white supremacist. (I also once saw a black supremacist and white nationalist bond together online over how much they hated teh Jews.)

    One noteworthy case is that of Daniel Burros, a Jewish man who was a member of both the American Nazi Party and the United Klans of America. He committed suicide because he believed a New York Times reporter was going to out him as a Jew. The case became the basis for the Ryan Gosling movie “The Believer.”

    The dentures thing, I think, was fairly common in decades past. My aunt had all of her top teeth pulled at 17 (1963) and has worn upper dentures ever since. I work for the dental industry and there’s been a shift away from traditional dentures, as they aren’t stable and contribute to bone loss in the jaw with all the missing teeth/roots. Most dentists now want to preserve as many of the natural teeth as possible, or replace their function with dental implants, but that wasn’t always the case. You had some bad teeth and didn’t feel like taking care of them, you had ’em yanked.

    As for the Cartier watch…I would not assume it’s real. There is a huge market for all kinds of luxury knock-offs, and many people have no problem wearing them since it’s often so hard to tell the difference. A jeweler could know by examining it, but without looking at it up close, it’s very hard to tell, and this is even more true with women’s watches, which are smaller-scaled and less flashy than men’s anyway.

      My thoughts exactly. Additionally, the source(s) of such detailed information about a missing person who was living this particular lifestyle might be, well, lets say easily mistaken about jewelry, and indeed about a great many other things. Having to deal with potentially (probably?) unreliable information about a missing person must be a particularly frustrating challenge for investigators.

    In relation to the case of the young adult with a full set of dentures, I thought back to another case I’ve read here in which the adult victim had a full set of baby teeth. She had never gotten her adult teeth. I’m sorry, don’t recall her name (I can picture her photos in my mins though). I don’t know what causes that scenario with the teeth, or how rare that is, but perhaps the girl in the case you mention here had the same type of condition and had to get her teeth removed.

    • Lauren June 8, 2015 / 10:35 am

      Melissa Hasley might be the person. 31 years old and still had all baby teeth.

    • Meaghan June 10, 2015 / 12:28 pm

      I had a few, I think four, baby teeth that remained in my mouth after the adult teeth grew in. I had to have them surgically removed because the side pressure caused by too many teeth in my mouth was causing my adult teeth to chip apart by degrees.

    People are also known to lose their teeth in car accidents, as well. It’s not as uncommon to be young and with dentures as we might think.

    Also on an unrelated topic, I brought this up a few weeks ago, but there are two different missing women named Mary Cox: one is a young Black woman who has been missing since the late 80s and the other is an middle-aged White woman missing since the mid-2000s. They are two separate cases accidentally combined into one casefile.

      I thought I’d fixed that. Sigh.
