    I still think MM's behavior right after his brother went missing is very curious. Why did he steal the computer from the home?
    I agree and the money being withdrawn so soon by Dan is also concerning. However, IMO,the most troubling thing was the waiting 11 days before they were reported missing. Hopefully,we'll get explanations when this finally goes to trial. I think the biggest hurdle will be how the SDSD said there was no crime in the house and SBSD says there was. Joseph's mom, MIke and others also cleaned the house which they admitted before it was declared a crime scene. Wasn't the house compromised?

    Well, if one were to believe RB then I suppose the computer was stolen. Has LE ever confirmed that it was stolen by MM or anyone else?

    Check out the emails from TES.

    http://rickgbaker.blogspot.com/2015/04/rick-baker-emails-with-texasequusearch.html

    ...When I told Tim that I was interviewing Mike later that day, he gave me a few questions to ask Mike to prove that he cannot tell the truth. One of those questions was to ask Mike what LE said when they found out he had the computer. Tim told me the honest answer would be that "LE had threatened to arrest him once they learned he had stolen Joey's computer from the house." But, sure enough, Mike lied. He told me and my listeners that LE told him it was ok because he was "the brother."...

    No offense but as far as I know those e mails have never been authenticated by Mr. Miller, have they? TIA

    That I don't know, but I believe what he says on the entire page explaining his problem with Tim Miller.

    OH MY GOD! MCSTAY FAMILY POSTS SKELETAL REMAINS PHOTOS IN HOPES OF GARNERING SYMPATHY/MONEY FROM PUBLIC

    In what is quite possibly the most unconscionable behavior yet, the McStay clan is at it again in doing what they do best: Asking for money.
    But this time, they have crossed every line of decency known to mankind.

    They are using a cousin of the clan this time, doing their begging on FundRazr.com, and claiming that this picture above is Joey and Summer!....


    There's a link to the site, but oddly it's been taken down. Good thing Rick took screenshots before writing his blog post.

    If RB would've spent a mere 30 seconds on research he would have quickly found that the fund raiser was not sanctioned by Patrick, Mikey or Susan. He would have also learned that they knew nothing about it until today.

    It's really quite sad how he latches on to what he perceives as "juicy gossip" and exploits the hell out of the family, all because they've rejected him. He's a damaged little man and lacks a modicum of empathy. SMDH

    I know, I saw it. It's reprehensible! I have no words. I'm glad this was exposed!

    Yes, he is reprehensible.

    In the article it states that it was put into a cousins name. Patrick, Mike and Susan wouldn't say they knew about it, even if they did. JMO

    I know the basics of this case - definitely not the details.
    I would like to keep it like that if possible - sorry if I'm not reading any of the links etc...
    Since I don't know much about this case, it will be interesting (for me, at least) to view it
    like a juror would have to or close to it - I know I'm going to be getting more info and the ability
    to search my inquiries if I wanted to.

    I guess my only question is when does it start?
    And then my other "only" question :giggle: will it be streamed live?
    Them my next "only other" question - just kidding :happydance:

    :thankyou:

    Yes, and the cousin said that they knew nothing about it. She acted on her own without their knowledge or consent.

    That's a good idea for the trial. This one might be broadcast on the internet.

    Do you think the cousin is really going to answer that honestly?

    It seems like there's a lot of smoke around these people and nobody thinks there's a fire. JMO

    I don't see the smoke that you see most likely because I question the validity of all things connected to RB. He's in this for his own personal gain. For him it stopped being about justice a very long time ago. I try my best to not just blindly believe anybody until I do some research and then I'll determine whose truth I'm going to believe. So far this has served me well.
