Investigators in San Bernardino County California have called in a forensic anthropologist to assist in the recovery of four bodies. Early reports are that the bodies could be that of all four missing McStay family members.
The McStay case earned national attention in 2010 when the family vanished from their home in California.
Investigators believed closed circuit security footage showed this family voluntarily crossing the border into Mexico. The FBI tried to track their movements unsuccessfully.
Could this family have crossed the border to be made to do something unwillingly and then came back into the US where they met a violent end?
Only the worst of the worst would kill children that’s for damn sure.
One author Rick Baker, who wrote a book “No Goodbyes” had the opinion that Summer may have killed Joseph McStay and ran off with the children Gianni and Joseph Jr. Baker has removed his book from Amazon and has offered refunds. Baker contacted me in regards to the missing Jamison family almost two years ago. At the time I saw no link in the two cases and my opinion was that because the McStay family computer had searches about “passports for children” “Mexico” amongst the last things in there web browser searches combined with the footage which appears to show them crossing the border- that they left voluntarily to avoid a perceived or real danger on their part. Baker did raise awareness for the story and kept it going long after mainstream media with his open blog on the story. I felt the Jamison’s staged their own disappearance.
One thing I can tell you for sure: The fact that authorities brought in a forensic anthropologist tells me that the bodies were there longer than a year.
It will be key to see what an analysis of the remains will reveal but sources tell me an electric cord was used to bound one of the corpses leading this to go forward as a homicide investigation.
On Friday, November 7th 2014 Charles Merritt, a business associate of Mr. McStay was arrested and charged with the homicide of the McStay Family. Investigators allege the homicide took place in the McStay home and that blunt force trauma was the cause of death in every instance. No motive has been made public at this point but stay tuned for all the trial details here.
