Aubrey Moss Disappeared From Washington State


By Brett Faulds

UPDATE: SUNDAY, APRIL 25TH. AUBREY HAS BEEN FOUND SAFE! No details have been given at this time.

Tonight, I want to bring attention missing persons tale of Aubrey Moss from Tacoma, Washington.  Aubrey disappeared on April 10th and not much is known about her whereabouts on that day. Aubrey age 20 was last seen wearing black yoga pants with a pink vest and flip-flops.  She has tattoos of roman numerals on her neck and arrows on her wrists. Her friends describe her as vivacious and glamorous.  She also has her nose pierced and usually has a hoop in it. Last night,  I did contact Tacoma PD with information about a twitter account with her name and picture with the location being LA, California. It turned out to be her account that she used while she spent time in California. All of her social media accounts have been silent since her disappearance. No activity on her cell phone either. She has no history of being a “runaway”.

The main reason I want to bring attention to this case as it continues to unfold is because I feel much can be learned from what is transpiring on social media regarding her disappearance. Many people are bombarding the family with lifestyle questions about this young lady. I believe that is wrong.  If you are the type of persons who shares missing persons fliers through social media- THANK YOU! You are doing a great service to the public. However, trying to ask questions to pry into a missing person’s life in the infancy of a disappearance is a real nuisance. Believe me families of the missing are going through enough without having to deal with that.

The only people who should be concerned with this young lady’s lifestyle choices at this point are trained investigators. I find often in cases family and friends hide bad lifestyle choices from both the public and investigators that their missing loved one has engaged in. IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT THE FAMILIES OF MISSING LOVED ONES TELL AUTHORITIES ANY LIFESTYLE CHOICES THAT MAY HAVE RESULTED IN THE DISAPPEARANCE. WHETHER IT BE CRIMINAL ONES OR OTHERS.  Unfortunately though, when the public presses for these answers directly and immediately it causes harm to the family.  The family has to spend precious time defending their loved one. Sadly, that seems to be unfolding in this case. The press and “reporters” from sites where virtually anyone can be a reporter do that all the time. They do it enough without the general public engaging in it. Some seem to enjoy digging up dirt on a missing person more than printing useful information to find them. It can be rather disgusting to see.

As the search for this missing young lady continues I will continue to update her story right here. Please share her poster which can be found on the facebook site:  HELP FIND AUBREY MOSS.

If you have any information on Aubrey’s whereabouts please dial 911 or call the Tacoma Police at (253) 798-4721.

The “Mysterious Disappearance” of Ray Gricar

By Keepthesearchalive (Brett Faulds)

After seeing recent articles on the disappearance of PA DA Ray Gricar, I decided I would go ahead and release the chapter from my upcoming book on “Mysterious Disappearances” pertaining to him.  Again I want to remind people, I am no conspiracy theorist. I have never interviewed a Bigfoot responsible for a person’s disappearance. I guess the same goes with aliens. I haven’t interviewed a single one that was responsible for a person going missing. If you believe it is far-fetched that man who was DA of Centre County could have possibly been leading some sort of double life. Well then you aren’t going to like this chapter very much.  I can tell you the story but I can’t make up all the little nuances of information that put it all together for you. The scary truth of what it all could mean. That is for you to take and weigh in on.

My first book tells you a lot about what happens to people who go missing.  It follows the story beginning to end in a similar way as this chapter does with Ray.  My goal is to cover disappearances where less fortunate people need help. In the Gricar disappearance, I certainly never felt like those connected to the case want help at this point in time from anyone. Weird, huh?  Strangely, two particular people who were in Ray’s life have just moved on. Recently, once again they declined to say much or answer questions about the case.

Leave a comment. Be respectful. Donate if you wish at the bottom I have a beautiful daughter who eats regularly. The first book will be available in June. It will feature other stories besides the Gricar case.

Mysterious Disappearances CHAPTER II:

Still shocked over the last outcome, I knew it was time to move on.  On to the disappearance of PA DA Frank Ray Gricar.

Frank “Ray” Gricar was DA of Centre County Pennsylvania when he went missing on April 15, 2005.  The story of his disappearance re-appeared during the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal that rocked the county in 2011. When I first began to blog about the case it was clear. Most people seemed to think Gricar was a homicide victim. The word on the street was that Gricar was done in by any number of enemies.  There was the possibility he was murdered to cover up a future Sandusky indictment. The possibility a heroin ring busted could have gotten revenge.  Strange rumors about a motorcycle gang killing him. Maybe he was killed for the information on his lap top computer?  There was no shortage of theories pointing to disappearance as the result of a criminal act. But    would there be evidence to support those theories?

I would be looking at three different scenarios here.  Disappearance as the result of a criminal act. Disappearance as the result of a suicide. A disappearance planned by Gricar of his own doing.

Who was Ray Gricar?  That is first question I had on my mind. What was his behavior like? What kind of person is he? What skeletons if any does he have in his closet? People connected to Gricar who spoke to me said that he was a consummate professional. He was  a ladies man type of figure. He did not do drugs. He did not gamble.  A person who worked with Gricar did blog at length about how he was a very private person. He did knock off work for the day every once in a while. Not one person I spoke to indicated ANY type of inappropriateness in his conduct. He was very proud of his Slovenian heritage. His heritage was a very important thing to him. It certainly did not seem that Gricar was center stage in the Centre County nightlife either. No one reports seeing him out much in social scenes. He had a law school education with a minor in Russian history. No one reports any sign of mental illness or depression. As I looked into whether or not Gricar would be the type of guy to look the other way over certain bad behaviors the answer became a resounding “NO!”  In various press outlets, girlfriend Patty Fornicola reports Ray seemed to be sleeping frequently prior to him disappearing. Sleeping could be a sign of stress. What would Gricar be so stressed over? He was about to retire.

So what do I write on the big white board so far?

***Ray Gricar was a very private man who was the consummate professional at work. He did not have any real bad habits. He didn’t gamble or do drugs. He graduated law school with a minor in Russian history. He was proud of his Slovenian heritage.

Next it’s time to find out what were Gricar’s actions on the day he disappeared.

On the day Gricar disappears, he calls off work. He changes plans he had to go to work to instead stay home. Ok this is important.  Anyone planning to murder Gricar with premeditation has just been thrown a major curveball. How would they know where Ray Gricar is going to be?

***Ray Gricar called off work the day he disappeared.

Ray leaves his place of residence in a newer red Mini Cooper. As many articles show a picture of Ray with that Mini it is extremely important to note that the Mini is not owned by Gricar. It is actually owned by Ray’s girlfriend Patricia Fornicola.

***The vehicle Ray leaves in- a red Mini Cooper is not actually “his”.

From the time Gricar leaves his residence until his car is found in Lewisburg, PA. we are left to fill in some major blanks. There is a sighting of Gricar in the shop near where the Mini was parked with a “dark haired woman”. Gricar did not make any emergency calls on his cell phone nor did he call anyone that would lead authorities to believe he was meeting someone last-minute. Who was this mysterious “dark haired” woman?

A Former AD would claim to see Ray driving a different car that day.

A source would come forward to me that she believes she saw Gricar with a woman in Lewisburg the day of his disappearance at a hotel.

No source has ever come forward to say they witnessed a crime.

No calls to 911 in Lewisburg or other nearby cities exist claiming a person witnessing Gricar walking away from the area where the Mini was found or jumping from the near by bridge.

A search of the river yielded no body or any pieces to a homicide case.

Gricar’s cell phone would be locked in the car where it would be found.  Much later, his laptop computer and subsequently it’s hard drive would both be found in the Susquehanna River close to where the Mini was parked. Reports from LE would confirm that Gricar’s home desktop computer would have searches on it dealing with “frying a laptop hard drive in water”.

*** Ray Gricar’s laptop computer and hard drive were found in Susquehanna River. Searches on his  computer reveal internet searches about destroying that lap top hard drive in “water”.

Given Ray called off work that day, who else but Gricar could have possibly destroyed it in that particular manner? How would they know information on that computer was exclusive to only -that- computer? How would they knew he’d have it on his day off? It is clear to me that because the computer is found in the matter it is that only Gricar is responsible for destroying it. At some point before he disappears he removes the hard drive to his laptop computer and throws it and the computer in the river exactly as his internet search suggested. But why?  He had several months of work to go before “retiring”!  How does this coincidently happen at the time Gricar goes missing? What could be on that laptop that no one could see at that particular time?

The chance of it being a mere coincidence I would place at hitting a six digit lottery ticket.

What were the people being interviewed for television programs saying about the story?

One television program I respect the most that deals with missing person’s cases would break out all the stops investigating this case. DATELINE NBC would premier an episode about the Gricar story. They even hired a consultant as CSI Yolanda McClary would be there to discuss her findings. Lester Holt would tell McClary that if Gricar left of his own free will that there would have to have been money moved.  She would agree. But behind the scenes authorities insisted that “There is nothing in Gricar’s financials that point to anything.” But was this statement true? In many homicide cases Law Enforcement does not give the press every single detail to keep with the integrity of the investigation.  McClary would make one more statement. The statement she would make I would agree with 100%. “Whatever happened here. It was very well planned.”

*** No crime scene. Nothing but the faint smell of tobacco in the Mini. No fingerprints or any type of evidence at the scene the Mini was left.

***A very well planned event.

In reaching out to McClary recently with some of my findings, she would tell me “I couldn’t get away from the thought he vanished on his own.”

The DATELINE special included interviews with girlfriend Patricia Fornicola. In one interview she uses the words “soul mates” to describe her relationship with Ray. She explains that Ray planned to retire and they were going to drive across the country.

I would think it would be a little uncomfortable in the Mini.  Sounds like a pipe dream!

Ok well, what exactly were Gricar’s financials at the time of his disappearance?

Here is where the story takes a turn for the interesting:

Public filings by Gricar’s family lawyer say that Gricar had under $25k in assets at the time he disappeared. Ray Gricar made over $120k a year as a district attorney. To me it seems odd.  Where was all this guys assets? Why was the car he drove in his girlfriend’s name?

“And now the REST OF THE STORY…”

A phrase coined by the great Paul Harvey.

Let’s take a look at what we have so far:

***Ray Gricar was a very private man who was the consummate professional at work. He did not have any real bad habits. He didn’t gamble or do drugs. He graduated law school with a minor in Russian history. He was proud of his Slovenian heritage.

***Ray Gricar called off work the day he disappeared.

***The vehicle Ray leaves in a red Mini Cooper is not actually “his”.

*** Ray Gricar’s laptop computer and hard drive were found in Susquehanna River. Searches on his desktop computer reveal internet searches about destroying that lap top hard drive in “water”.

*** No crime scene. Nothing but the faint smell of tobacco in the Mini. No fingerprints or any type of evidence at the scene the Mini was left.

***A very well planned event.

***Ray Gricar had under $25k in assets the time he disappeared.

Not one single thing I have uncovered suggests a homicide.

It sure does look like a planned event by Gricar.

The digging didn’t end there.

***A source provided me with a copy of a document filed to a PA agency in 2014 with secretive language in regards to the Gricar case. The language in the document makes it clear it was not meant for public scrutiny and reveals that the only assets Gricar owned  was a joint bank account with his daughter that had just over 1k in it.

***Family spokesperson Tony Gricar’s twitter handle has followers who speak Slovenian. He deals in Etruscan Art. He also has admitted he knows people in the foreign intelligence field.

***I interviewed a former defense contractor from Lancaster County who attended a FBI seminar in the late 1990’s which talked about Central PA being a very popular location for foreign intelligence agents. Destinations in Central PA would be a days drive from places like Philadelphia, Washington DC and New York. Communications by these agents were either by computer or personal meetings. 

***Gricar did travel in the past to what is the former Yugoslavia.

***Gricar’s brother Roy was found to have committed suicide by bridge jump in Ohio. Roy did work at a military base and had several military clearances. Ray told others he wasn’t sure his brother really did commit suicide. Could Ray have been afraid it would be his end?

*** A retired police sketch artist believes he sees Ray and a women in another state eating at coffee shop.(This sighting is just miles from a foreign consulate.)

***The campaign to find Ray abruptly seemed to end. Everyone has seemingly moved on. No more interviews from the two closest to him.

Ray Gricar, I believe was leading a double life. His long time assistant mentions his life of privacy in her blog. It goes along with what I know about his behavior. While interests from plenty of people have been generated since the PSU scandal about Gricar’s disappearance. I allege Gricar’s disappearance had nothing at all to do with the goings on at PSU. I believe if they had. That we would know about it by now. I have looked at this and interviewed people from both sides of the coin. From the side Gricar was murdered to cover it up. To the side he may have actually been involved in the pedophilia we hear went on at PSU. No one has said anything nor could our research connect him to the goings on in ANY way. People who have spoken to me off the record tell me Gricar was “upset” at that time about the Sandusky claims. However, after interviewing the accuser at the time he could not file charges. (I was told he put Sandusky and the accuser in the same conference room then left the room to observe their behavior. The accuser’s behavior while left alone with Sandusky did not coincide with one who was a victim, we we’re told.) Likewise, to date… no one has come forward to say Gricar was involved in ANY wrongdoings there. We interviewed one person who claims to have been brought to Central, PA from Philadelphia by a guy named Ed Savitz. He had no knowledge of Ray Gricar.

I do not believe Gricar was murdered to conceal evidence on that laptop computer. It would have been impossible for any criminal to know that whatever incriminating information Gricar may have had about them- that it was SOLELY on that computer. We instead point to the fact that Gricar searched his home computer to find ways to “destroy a laptop hard drive” as proof that no one else besides Ray Gricar threw both the hard drive and the computer in that river in the manner it was found.

I believe enough circumstantial evidence exists to suggest Gricar staged his entire disappearance that day.

He had the whole thing premeditated right down to the very date. Gricar had the professional background to be a perfect foreign intelligence agent. He had in the recent past travelled overseas… a trip noted on the FBI file about him. That the “mysterious” – woman Gricar was seen with was actually his handler. That if one WAS a foreign intelligence agent one could never retire peacefully here. That Gricar himself who by all accounts was retiring from his DA gig- simply HAD to travel back overseas where his final destination was uh- dare I say “SLOVENIA”.  It was time to run quickly before he was found out. He simply staged the entire event and was picked up after jockeying the Mini Cooper he drove that was already in his girlfriend’s name for a final gift then chucked the computer and HD in the drink and headed for a foreign consulate. That the retired police sketch artist who came forward to say he was certain he saw Gricar in a location that just happened to be miles from the Macedonia consulate- was absolutely correct. And from that consulate Gricar arranged travel back overseas to his final destination of Slovenia to “retire”. I believe the FBI file that was acquired by Deadspin supports this too. (I liken it to the disappearance of John Stonehouse.)

And I believe all the secrecy about the disappearance of an elected official who’s disappearance was left for a local police detective to solve instead of the FBI or the State Police stemmed from the fact that other law enforcement agencies knew this is was not a homicide case at some point shortly after the investigation started. That is why I believe the claim he was “murdered and placed in a mine shaft” was so quickly disproven. It’s why the case was handed from a panel back to the PSP without one public comment about what that “panel” had found.

I do not believe his loved ones were aware of his “secret life”. I suspect that’s why he seemed tired about something just prior to his disappearance. He knew he was coming to the time he was going to have to leave friends and loved ones behind. An awfully stressful deal. What they know at this point in time I would question. If Ray did leave of his own accord at some point down the road would he let that secret slip to the people he loved?

****In 2011, around 80 pictures of former UDBA agents with retired and current SOVA agents appeared on the web from a picnic they had all attended. (UDBA and SOVA are both the names for the Slovenia Intelligence program. UDBA being the former name of it. SOVA the current name of it.) We have tried to view these pictures in an attempt to see if perhaps Gricar attended. We have only been able to find one existing picture (of an ex agent named Zvonko Hrastar who’s wife ironically happened to be a prosecutor.) others have been removed from the internet.

My book on America’s most “Mysterious Disappearances” debuts in the summer of 2015.

Donate a $1? Or wait until the whole book is out!  I sure would appreciate it! I’d love to start a web series. I would also like to be able to promote awareness about some cases that do not get media attention.

Gricar Story Realeased Free (Donation only) on April, 17 2015; 7PM.

The story of my look into the disappearance of missing PA DA Ray Gricar will be available for free (by free-will donation) on Friday, April 17th 2015 at 7pm – until the release of the book in July. It will be available the very week of the anniversary of his disappearance. It will appear right here attached to the blog site.  The story itself  is a chapter from my upcoming book “Mysterious Disappearances THE SERIES VOL I.” debuting this summer. You will also have access to a short video.

Again, my purpose in not to be Sherlock Holmes. My purpose here is to interview people after the cameras go away. To find what people are saying who may not want to go to the police. To use the skills I detail in my book in a different way. My hopes are that I can assist people who REALLY need help. Some cases that involve minorities or adult men often go left for families to try to find their loved ones by themselves. There cases may not be high profile but they need the most help. My second book will be looking at their cases.

To properly take a look at this case, it has taken a lot of time and money.  I simply asked that those who appreciate the work and want to see more like it continue-  to take a moment and donate a dollar.  Some people are more interested in the book just for the Gricar story.  This gives you the opportunity to get that story without feeling pressured to buy the book.

Let me end by saying that in the Gricar case there is a lot of circumstantial “evidence” in this case. That evidence does in fact point to one specific conclusion. I know that it will be a tough pill to swallow. I am not a conspiracy theorist.  I have never interviewed a Bigfoot responsible for a missing person. Likewise, I have never interviewed a little green man from Mars who ever kidnapped a human.  The Gricar story took some time for me to actually believe myself.  I was terrified. I still am! But it is what it is.

Missing Kayelyn Louder

by Keepthesearchalive   (Updated below)


One of the strangest disappearances I have run across in the Fall of 2014 has been that of Kayelyn Louder of Murray, Utah. Kayelyn age 30, went missing from her apartment complex known as the “Willows” around 6pm Sept. 27th, 2014 after some of the most bizarre series of events imaginable.

A former social worker, Louder has been described as a “quirky, compassionate, fun-loving” young women who was “loved by everyone who met her”.  Prior to her disappearance it appeared she was expecting guests as she had cleaned her apartment.

Most disturbing, is that the morning of her disappearance she had called 911 and reported that she thought strangers were inside her apartment “taking things”. I have reviewed the tapes and it sounds to me like she certainly was in some type of distress. (You can review the tapes yourself and more information by viewing the Facebook page: Find Kayelyn Louder.)

While authorities have a video tape of Louder walking out of her apartment in a white tank top with no shoes in a pouring cold rainstorm there are no signs of a crime for them to investigate at this point. In addition to having no shoes on Kayelyn did not have her wallet, car keys or cell phone. Witnesses have come forward to say they saw Kayelyn trying to open locked gates and cars.

One thing I believe for certain: Kayelyn Louder did not simply walk away from her cherished pet pug and all the people who loved her to start anew.

The search for Louder by family and friends has been intensive. In covering these stories, I have never seen a greater effort in the use of flyers, events and social media in any other case. It is a 24/7 effort by people to get information on this young lady out there. It is most certainly a model effort and everyone involved is to be commended.

Let’s hope and pray that this young lady is found safe and please share her information with everyone you know. You can also go to the public Facebook page at: Find Kayelyn Louder- to learn how to help more.

If nothing breaks on the case soon, I will start conducting interviews with people who know her. Citizens of the area tell me there are a number of missing persons cases going on there. One thing is for certain… we need to find this young lady FAST. With no clues as to her disappearance time is of the essence for sure.

Despite recent searches to the area there are no leads that have led to Ms. Louder’s safe return.

 If you have any information on the disappearance of Kayelyn Louder contact Private Investigator Allen Robins at (801) 864-8897 or to report a crime Murray Police at

(801) 840-4000. If you would like to leave an anonymous tip (866) 660-4025.

***UPDATE–  It is with heavy heart that I report that the body of Kayelyn Louder was found in the Jordan River on 12.01.14.  The body was found near a drainage pipe. A creek from nearby her residence does feed into that river. With the last known sighting of Ms. Louder being seen outside in the pouring rain with no shoes and the strange calls to 911 in which authorities describe her as “delusional” we are left to wonder if indeed this is a homicide case, an accidental death case or a suicide. Hopefully, the Medical Examiner’s office will be able to provide her friends and family with some concrete answers. One thing is for certain… Friends family and strangers came together like I have never seen before to find this young lady. The amount of love in her heart that spread like wild fire throughout her community will no doubt be missed. I will continue to update this story as information becomes available. The effort by family and friends co-ordinated by cousin Amy Fugal should really be a model for what should happen to find a missing loved one.  It has been quite extraordinary to follow.

*** UPDATE APRIL 21, 2015

The results of the toxicology reports did not yield the answers this family was desperately seeking. The cause of death was ruled “undetermined” but it appears it is related to the elements and water. Since this young lady was found with no apparent signs of homicide I am left to conclude based on the circumstantial things we know- that she ran into the woods herself and it precipitated and accidental death. I can only speculate based on the police response to a call she made that she was not in her right mind for whatever reason prior to her disappearance. Quite frankly, I knew this was going to be the outcome for months. Whatever caused Kayelyn to act the way she did prior to her disappearance we may never know. Sadly, however this sweet soul met with a tragic end. What makes a person do this? In my experience studying these cases it can be prescription drugs, illegal drugs (which tests came back negative for), synthetic drugs or in some cases an onset of mental illness.

Jamison DNA Update

I have learned last week that the DNA test on the remains believed to be Madyson Jamison has been completed.

Law Enforcement is not releasing the report at this time.

The website NamUs which is used by Law enforcement in these cases has also posted a picture on their website of an age progressed Madyson. The picture was made in Feb ’14.

Leaving us yet again with way more questions than answers.  If they thought the remains were hers why go through the motions of doing all this hard work to make up an age-progressed picture?


Below was the age progressed picture of what Madyson Jamison would have looked like had she been alive today.

This story will be featured in the book that has taken me four years to write. “Mysterious Disappearances” will debut in August ’14 after much delay.  It will feature stories of my search for people who have disappeared. It is not a “theory” book. Instead the book will give readers some answers to the questions many have about disappearances. WHAT EXACTLY MAKES PEOPLE DISAPPEAR WITHOUT A TRACE? I’ll tell you about all the scenarios leading up to the conclusion that ultimately missing persons are either DEAD or ALIVE. You’ll hear about real life stories with some of the most bizarre and shocking scenarios imaginable. Remember: Not all the missing persons stories you see on TV mean that the person is a homicide victim.

It will be available right here on my blog in paperback. You will also be able to order it for Ipad and in other e-formats a week after the book is released. Stay tuned.

Lauren Spierer Update



Today, Jan.17th would have been a very special day for Indiana University attendee Lauren Spierer. It would have marked the young ladies twenty-third birthday.  

The story of the disappearance of Lauren Spierer is a gut wrenching one for this blogger.  Lauren Spierer disappeared in the early morning hours of June 3, 2011 after a night out with friends. I have a really hard time typing the word “friends”.  I have researched hundreds of missing persons cases and this particular case frustrates me to the point of breaking things. The reason being that I believe that at least one of her “friends” are just not telling authorities what all they know.

Now this is the point I would go in-depth to tell you the story of this wonderfully vibrant young girl and the family who loves her. I would go into all the details of what happened the night of her disappearance in hopes the story might be read by someone who’s memory might be jogged. I would give you all the fine details leading up to her disappearance with my analysis on what certain facts may mean.

But this case is not a big mystery. In fact it makes my blood boil more so than usual.

It is especially nightmarish knowing that at least one of these “friends” know exactly what happened to Lauren. 

See this isn’t a missing person’s case where we all can debate theories. We know that some of the folks that were with Lauren at the time of her disappearance immediately hired high profile attorneys “lawyered up” and left town. They didn’t stick around long to search for her. They never utilized their social media accounts to help find her to this very day. They just got quiet. One even got defensive to a reporter about how his life was turned upside down by the event while never even mentioning Lauren’s name.

Some friends, huh?

Before I go off on a complete tirade about this case. I find in many cases that we don’t get the entire story about the behaviors of the missing from their loved ones. Most folks do what they can to maintain a positive image of their missing loved one. This case is no different in that aspect. People fear that their loved one will be seen as less than sympathetic if bad behaviors are exposed. Some go to great lengths to hide those behaviors. Some are just unaware they existed.

I don’t want to discuss Lauren’s bad behaviors to upset her loved ones. Quite the contrary. It goes directly to the best piece of information I could give readers to avoid winding up in similar situations themselves.

 The night Lauren disappeared she was drinking underage with a fake ID at a bar. She was “partying” with several people she knew. She was by all accounts a “partyer”. Lots of young people are. Especially in your college years. But here is the most important thing to consider if you go out partying.


When you lose that ability and your judgment is blurry… you are MUCH more susceptable to being the victim of a criminal act.

ESPECIALLY, if you are a good looking young vibrant petite blonde. That my friends is a fact worth remembering and if there is a lesson to be learned from this tragedy that is it. 

And that is exactly what we have here. A night that was suppose to be a fun night out with new friends partying in college turned into a tragic missing persons case. One in which authorities hands are tied because while they have a good idea who is involved they have no hard evidence to charge anyone in the case with any wrongdoing. The Spierer parents have pursued a civil lawsuit for wrongful death against some.

Recently, an article surfaced by PI Bill Warner trying to connect a number of these cases together including Spierer’s based on the fact that the women were all petite blondes. They are not all directly connected. There is no serial killer on the loose involved in these cases in my opinion. At least not in this case.

The Spieirer’s have done absolutely everything possible to bring home their daughter. They have hired a top PI firm. They have utilized the mainstream media, social media and the internet to keepthesearchalive for Lauren.

Just take a look at this statement issued this past October on the Facebook page started dedicated to finding Lauren.

To the person responsible, there are many things I don’t know about you.  The one thing I know without a doubt is that you are the definition of evil.  Time does not heal all.  With each passing day living with the loss of Lauren is more difficult.   Maybe that’s what fuels your silence.  Maybe what happened to Lauren on June 3, 2011 was not enough.  You revel in the pain and suffering you continue to inflict on our family and those who loved Lauren.  I have to believe your day of reckoning  will come.  You cannot possibly think we will ever give up.  We never will…
To anyone who has information about Lauren’s disappearance, you CAN send an anonymous tip to the post office box.   If you are ready to help us by sharing what you know, I implore you to do so by calling the tipline, by sending a private message via Facebook, by sending an email or by calling the private investigator. 
Someone knows what happened.  Lauren did not make herself disappear.   Charlene Spierer
Find Lauren PO Box 1226 Bloomington, IN 47402… Tips 812.339.4477 Beau Dietl & Associates 800.777.9366″
So what can we possibly do on Lauren’s birthday to help bring her home?
We have decided that we are not going to sit back and allow the “quiet ones” to continue to get away with trying to erase the memories of what happened in Bloomington that night. That is what they have done. They have tried to erase memories from their brains and social media accounts of their relationship with Lauren and have hidden behind high profile attorneys. I guess in hopes that they will be able to continue on with their lives in some normal fashion.
We are going to simply remind them of Lauren’s disappearance. For as long as it takes.
You see…let me write this to you directly. Corey, I believe it has become easier for you in the short term.
But I know every time you drink and party the memories creep back to haunt you. Oh you might be far from college now. You might think time will heal this for you. You might have even figured out a way to justify the whole thing in your head. But what are you going to do some day when you get older and have a child (perhaps a daughter)? The wisdom you gain about life as you mature will only make your secret haunt you worse. You are religious person. Do the right thing. Don’t let this secret corrode what is left of your soul. Lauren Spierer was living breathing beautiful young person. Try as you may to forget her. We don’t plan on letting you.  
I wonder since it seems you’re trying to distance yourself far from the situation if you even know that you’ve been given a golden ticket to clear your conscience? Do you even know about the PO Box?
Whatever happened to Lauren that night it is time for someone to leave a tip. Its gone on for far too long now. For those who knew the people involved but are afraid to say anything. Don’t be. It’s time for you to come forward as well.
Please… if you have any information in this case please write or call: Find Lauren PO Box 1226 Bloomington, IN 47402… Tips 812.339.4477 Beau Dietl & Associates 800.777.9366

The Maura Murray Update


Fans of this blog should run right over to Crime writer James Renner has done an outstanding job of trying to figure out what happened to Maura Murray.

Murray disappeared mysteriously on Feb. 9th 2004. She was involved in a traffic accident and after telling a bus driver she was “ok”. She was never seen again.

Many people have theorized she was the victim of foul play.

We have donated $250 to Renner’s campaign to put up ads seeking information on her disappearance on it’s anniversary.

Please click on the link to his blog above and watch this mystery unfold and support his work. We will be writing much more about her disappearance but will not impede Mr. Renner’s work on the case unless further details become available.

8/17/14 UPDATE: Recently in the kidnapping of Abigail Hernandez many wondered why the person arrested Nate Kibby 34, was charged off the bat with very low felony charges. Some wrongly speculated that Hernandez was a willing participant. I want to shed some light on the matter.
Authorities do this to gain leverage over a suspect when they need to obtain additional information from the would be perp. In this case, I believe they did this to try to get Kibby who sources tell me is not talking to authorites- to talk. I certainly do not believe Hernandez was the first victim of this person rather his LAST. Could a then 24 yo Kibby have been involved in the disappearance of Maura Murray? Well, Hernandez was abducted from the side of the road. Murray was waiting along the side of the road when she disappeared. Would Murray, who wrecked yet another car and may have been drinking and driving have been vulnerable to a 24 yo kidnapper such as Kibby? Absolutely. More over, would Murray have gotten in a vehicle willingly with Kibby to avoid yet more trouble in her life? I certainly think so. The set of circumstances fit perfectly. Kibby most certainly should be questioned with Murray and other women’s disappearances.
Let’s hope that investigators can get to the bottom of just how many and which women Kibby has victimized. Maybe some families can finally gain some closure on their disappeared loved ones.
