Well, that just came out of nowhere

My ever-reliable source Jaime sent me this article about Elsie Roane. It turns out the suspect in her case is male, and still alive. He was about her own age at the time of her disappearance.

But more to the point, the police chief is quoted out of nowhere saying, “My focus right now is to find Elsie Mae and her child and give them a proper burial.”

Um…child? What child? No one previously said anything about a child.

I’m guessing she must have been pregnant at the time of her disappearance, then. I’ll have to make a note in her casefile. I wonder if the suspect is the baby’s father.

    A hint at a motive can be found in a recent press interview with ABC News Chanel 13 reporter Marcella Robertson, where Chief Mawyer states, “We may never have the right evidence to prosecute and at this point I’m not concerned with that. My focus right now is to find Elsie Mae and her child and give them a decent burial.”

    That caught me off guard about her and her child. I’ve searched and no report of her pregnant though i don’t think anyone was suppose to know. Can’t understand why no one else caught that…

    I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY THEY THINK SHE DIED? MAYBE SHE DID JUST RUN AWAY. SHE WOULDN’T BE THE FIRST WOMAN TO HAVE HER BABY, IF SHE WAS PREGNANT, AND RAISE IT ALONE. I WANT TO KNOW MORE!

      I’m guessing they have some actual evidence to back up their belief that she’s dead. Of course, in my opinion, 58 years of total silence is evidence.
