Thinking aloud, 9/5/2016

  • Carol Ann Smith: Well, that looks incredibly suspicious, does it not?
  • Eric Grady Smith: Normally, when someone disappears on a hunting trip, I think “hunting accident/got lost and died of exposure.” But this case really puzzles me. It’s not as if Smith disappeared while hunting in the remote wilderness in some huge national park; he was on his own property. Searchers had a very good idea about where to look, and it can’t have been that large an area, yet they found no trace of him.
    Everyone emphasized how careful Smith was at work (although, ironically, the reason he’s blind in one eye is due to a workplace accident). Mining is a very dangerous profession, and at one point the mine Smith was in charge of won some kind of recognition for going an entire year without a single accident. He carefully followed the safety regulations, and whenever new laws were passed he studied them and made sure to apply them correctly. It seems like someone who was so stringent about safety at work would be that way in his personal life too, which, it seems, would make a hunting accident less likely.
    Yet there is, as far as I can tell, no evidence of foul play and no motive. Rather like the Miller Harlow case.
  • Lee Gregory Snellings Jr.: I wish I knew which mental illness Snellings was suffering from. His mom said he could be talked into anything and not recognize danger. Amber Schulze was also said to be “highly suggestible” due to a mental disorder, but I don’t know what was wrong with her either. I wonder if Lee was in an ATV accident, like Gerald Randall Marion (scroll down to the middle of the page). I didn’t find anything about his ATV turning up.
  • Thomas Walter Sprinkle Jr.: He makes the second Charley Project case I’ve got of someone missing an ear. (This is the first one.) I wonder if this was a suicide. I mean, the poor man was 79 years old, he had cancer, he was missing an ear, and then he finds out he’s being evicted. And he had threatened suicide before. Whatever happened, I think if we find Sprinkle’s van, we’ll find him.
  • Harry Lee Womack: A case with contradictory information: one article I found specifically said he suffered from dementia and seizures, but another said he had no medical conditions that would cause mental confusion. Oh-kay…
  • Howard Kenneth Woolwine: I wrote about him yesterday. I am going to call some people tomorrow and see about that photo. I decided to put him up anyway, but I’ve got grave misgivings as to whether the person in that photo is really him. I would have called around today, but I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have been able to talk to anyone due to the holiday. Anyway… I’m thinking Woolwine might have hitched a ride with somebody. That would explain why the searchers never found him in spite of the fact that he could barely walk.

Thinking aloud writing today’s updates

Laurie Lynn Bradshaw: *Googles the name of the guy driving her car* Weird…no sign of him on the internet at all. The article saying they can’t find him is from August 1987. I wonder if he ever did turn up?

Joanne Long Fugett: The date of birth given on this obituary would match Joanne’s age; this is probably her. I’ve seen such notices for MPs who have been declared legally dead. But why would Joanne get declared legally dead just seven months after her disappearance?

Donna Kay Gibson: My God, if someone abducted this poor woman (which looks likely) when she had laryngitis… She wouldn’t even been able to scream for help.

Miller Smith Harlow: This is a strange case. It looks like it must have been foul play, but why? Who would want to kill this harmless, likable retiree?

Abdallah Ahmed Hassan and Barkad Ilyas Hassan: Weird, two guys with the same surname disappear from the same city just two weeks apart. Probably not related though. Hassan is a really common Muslim name. Abdallah was apparently Somali. I wonder if Barkad and his friend Hamza Okie were too? The photos all look like passport-type pics.

Francisco Arroya Hernandez: The Virginia State Police page mistakenly calls him “Franciso” and then refers to him as “Francisco” in the text of the document; I wonder if “Arroya” is also a mistake and it’s supposed to be “Arroyo.”

From the VSP page also, La-Teasha LaMone Brooks and Heather Dialian Hodges have one new photo each.

Select It Sunday: Isabella Miller-Jenkins

This week’s Select It Sunday case was chosen by Maddie C (she emailed, coincidentally, a few days before I received my most recent loony email): Isabella Ruth Miller-Jenkins, a seven-year-old who was abducted by her mother, Lisa Ann Miller, from Bedford, Virginia back in 2010. Lisa took her south; I think they were last known to be in Nicaragua. Isabella would now be fourteen.

This is a very high-profile family abduction case, mostly because Isabella’s parents are both women and Lisa is an ex-gay, right-wing Christian whose cause other right-wing Christian people have embraced — to the extent that several of them faced charges for helping her.

Lisa and Isabella’s other mother, Janet Jenkins, had split up amicably and Isabella lived with Lisa and had visitation Janet, but after Lisa joined Jerry Falwell‘s church, she decided homosexuality was sinful and wouldn’t let Isabella see Janet anymore because she didn’t want to expose her to that way of life. Several years of legal wrangling later, a family court judge transferred custody to Janet because he thought this was the only way Isabella could maintain a relationship with both mothers. In response, Lisa took her.

I am very much an LGBT ally, but even if I wasn’t, this case is really no different than any other family abduction case. You’ve got one parent who refused to let their ex see the child, alienated the child against her ex, made false accusations of abuse by the ex, and decided she was above the law and didn’t have to obey court rulings. This started long before the abduction, when the judge tried to enforce the visitation schedule by fining Lisa $25 for every day she wouldn’t allow Isabella to see Janet. Lisa racked up thousands in fines.

And to top it off, when they left Virginia, Lisa left Isabella’s pet hamsters behind at home to die a slow, horrible death of dehydration and thirst. Because, you see, if she asked anyone to look after them, that might tip the authorities off that they were going on the run. So she’s an animal abuser as well as a child abuser. Parental abduction is demonstrably child abuse, and Lisa is using religion as a shield for her crimes.

Not cool, Lisa. Not cool at all.

And now Isabella is probably living in pretty miserable conditions. El Salvador, one country where she and Lisa might be living, is an incredibly violent place and is considered the murder capital of the world. Although Nicaragua is safer by comparison, that’s not saying much, and Nicaragua is the poorest country in the western hemisphere, after Haiti. If Isabella is like most victims of family abduction — even those who aren’t living in third world countries — she is not receiving adequate education or health care. And of course she’s been completely cut off from the other side of her family, who love her. Lisa has, so far, stolen six and a half years of her life.

This is all pretty standard, alas, for family abductions. I cannot begin to explain how much parental kidnappers, and those that support them, disgust me.

He’s back!

Remember this guy?

Well, he’s written me again about the Isabella Miller-Jenkins case, over three years since I last heard from him.

Site operator:

By accusing Isabella’s mother Lisa Miler of “kidnapping” you are therefore promoting Janet Jenkins the sodomite and her crimes against Isabella which included bathing with her and showing her graphic videos and teaching her to touch herself in ways that will not be named and also teaching her to use the bathroom standing up like boys do. It is truly horrible to accuse a biological mother of kidnapping who is trying to protect her young daughter from sodomite pedophile corruption of minors and you are at the same time assisting the sodomite US tyranny’s efforts against a weak helpless mother. This is heresy and blasphemy. The Lord God declares that sodomites and their endorsers are “hateful” to Him and that they are all “worthy of death.” It’s the reason the americans (according to Prophecy) don’t have another 8 years in their collective life spans and will be going extinct in spectacular fashion through instant nuclear annihilation to the great celebration and satisfaction of the world and the deep sadness of England. If you ever want to begin to make matters aright (and that is not likely) then the first step is a public retraction and a vigorous condemnation of sodomites. Sodomites are unnatural and totally abominable demon-possessed freaks doomed to eternal fires. It is not merciful to affirm others in their heinous sins which send them to Hellfire.

STRIKE 1: Science demonstrates the sin of Sodom is not genetic. Identical twins have the same genes. They are nurtured in equal prenatal conditions. If an identical twin is a sodomite then the co-twin would also be a sodomite if the sin of Sodom were genetic in origin – because they have identical DNA. Statistically however if an identical twin has sodomite lusts the chances that the co-twin has it are about 11% for men and 14% for women (i.e. when an identical twin is a sodomite: at least 86-89% of the time their co-twins are not sodomites). Scientific studies have therefore concluded that non-shared post-birth factors such as molestation or exposure to the lust film industry or individual responses to events explain why one twin has unnatural sodomist lusts while the other doesn’t. Studies show it’s a choice in life.

STRIKE 2: According to the US DOJ National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS) 64% of victims of “forcible sodomy” were boys age 12 and under. So the largest victim population of sodomite rape are children. Also the excess number of aids among boys is a result of sodomite rape. Sodomites prey upon and go after children to generate more sodomitical persons with whom to engage in the degenerate acts.

STRIKE 3: According to Richard Nixon’s Commission on Obscenity for every female prostitute there are 9 underage male prostitutes. The only ‘public’ promoters of crimes against children are sodomites. NAMBLA’s motto is “S-x before 8 or it’s too late.” This sodomite group has been involved in the rape and murder of a 10 year old boy and also auctioning children.

STRIKE 4: According to the Europe-wide police investigative agency Europol in its 2013 report on child exploitation: half of the world’s crimes against children internet servers are hosted by the US. It’s really no surprise that half of the world’s child contraband videos and photos are produced by servers traced to the US – the most sodomite corporation in human history. It gets worse. The Australian Communications and Media Authority reported in 2014 a 500% increase in the world’s crimes against children online images and video and said that a staggering 64% of it were hosted on US based servers. It is unsurprising that the most pedophile organization is the most sodomite organization on the planet and in human history. So basically 64% of the planet’s pedophilia would be eliminated if americans went extinct. You corrupt the whole earth Daughter of Babylon.

Today in previous years

I can’t sleep tonight so I wound up checking my blog entries for June 29 on previous years. I began the blog in late 2008. There’s nothing from this day in 2009, 2010 or 2011, but on June 29, 2012 I (tongue in cheek) threatened to commit suicide after I counted my backlog and realized it was 987 cases. (The total is a lot higher now.)

On this date in 2013 I directed readers to Sean Munger’s coverage of Scott Hilbert‘s disappearance, and also noted that I was in the process of purging casefiles.

A year ago today was a Make-a-List Monday and a short commentary on a presumed-dead MP who basically died of stupidity. In the latter entry, questions were raised in the comments section about whether one of the photos I posted for Zulma Pabon was really her. (It turned out it wasn’t. Not my fault; the Virginia State Police posted the wrong pic. I think they might have pulled the picture from a driver’s license database and it was a different person with the same name.) I also griped about a case where the Alabama MP database made it look like James Aaron Toole disappeared 19 YEARS after he actually went missing.

Carry on.

New APs and one new pic

Earl Kidder has a new picture added, and the following cases have new age-progressions:

  1. Briana Ochoa
  2. Mindy Ochoa
  3. Tania Ochoa
  4. Jack Daniel Phillips
  5. Kawan K. Pryor

Whaddaya know!

You might recall a bit of commentroversy last summer when I added a photo to Zulma Pabon’s casefile that looked nothing like all the other pictures. I had gotten the photo from the Virginia State Police and I called them and they swore it was legit, but I decided to remove it.

Well, I don’t know if it was my inquiry that set things in motion or what, but if you go to the Virginia State Police MP listings now and scroll down, you’ll find the old photo of Zulma replaced by two ones that are definitely her.
