    Special detective appointed to investigate Bellevue cold cases

    After recent successes in tracking down the killer in a decades-old cold case, the Bellevue Police Department announced plans this week to revisit the city’s 17 unsolved missing persons and homicide cases.

    The department announced Jan. 18 that they have assigned Detective Johnson, a 32-year veteran of the department, to review unsolved cases such as the disappearances of Sky Metalwala and Julianne Jaillet and the murder of Loren Sundholm. With the advancement of technology and investigative techniques, the police say they have had success revisiting old cases like 1980 murder of Susan Lowe, which was solved in 2013.

    Bellevue detective to reopen cold cases, including Sky Metalwala

    Bellevue Police have assigned a detective to take a fresh look at several unsolved homicides and missing person cases including the 2011 disappearance of 2-year-old Sky Metalwala.

    Officer Seth Tyler says one of the cases involves 2-year-old Sky Metalwala, who was reported missing in Bellevue by his mother on Nov. 6, 2011. The FBI, Bellevue Police and others have followed thousands of leads and spent over $2 million on the investigation but the boy remains missing.

    “It is worth taking an extra look at every one of these cases to see if there’s evidence,” said Spak. “Just imagine if that was your family member and we are able to obtain new evidence.”

    When asked specifically about the Sky Metalwala case, the investigations commander said, “We need to talk to Julia (Sky’s mom).” He added up to this point she’s refused to be interviewed by police.

    Bellevue police: Sky Metalwala’s mother is lying about his disappearance

    Sunday will mark five years since 2-year-old Sky Metalwala vanished from his mother’s care in Bellevue.

    Julia Biryukova has lived under a cloud of suspicion in her son’s disappearance, but to this day she has never been arrested or charged with a crime. She has refused to speak with investigators or the press.

    “Her story is inconsistent with the evidence that we do have,” Bellevue Police Chief Mylett said Friday in an interview with Q13 News This Morning. “Her statements to police at the time that she reported Sky missing were not supported by the evidence and the facts as we know them.”

    While Bellevue police have publicly questioned Biryukova’s version of events, the department had been hesitant to flat-out accuse her of lying.

    On Friday, for the first time, Chief Mylett said he believes Biryukova lied to police about the circumstances surrounding her son’s disappearance.

    “You know what? I’m going to go there,” he said. “Yeah, I do think she was not telling the truth to our investigators. Whatever the motivation was at the time, we need to go back and find out what exactly happened.”

    Chief Mylett urged Biryukova to cooperate.

    "Ms. Biryukova please contact the Bellevue Police Department to allow us the opportunity to help find your son," Chief Mylett wrote in a statement. "We are more than willing to work with you and your attorney to identify a convenient time and location to discuss Sky’s disappearance. I am convinced you hold the key to finding Sky. The employees of the Bellevue Police Department will not stop searching for Sky, but I cannot emphasize enough the role you play in successfully locating your little boy."

    To date, Bellevue police, with assistance from the FBI and the Redmond Police Department, have pursued more than 2,500 tips, dedicated 14,000 man hours, and spent more than $2 million dollars on the Sky Metalwala investigation.

    Glad LE is calling her out! Her friends need to know what they're dealing with - a woman who would lie about the disappearance of her own child!

    Saw on local news that Sky's mom is using the name Julia Morgan now.
    Reminds me a lot of Kyron's mom. Moving, changing her name, etc. Keep the pressure on her!

    Looks like his dad - such a cutie. I have said this about others - it makes me sad to see age-progressions when I am pretty sure the child is no longer with us.

    Does the egg donor have Sky's sister?

    No, Solomon won custody. As far as I know, she doesn't even have visitation rights.

    However, she gave birth to another child in 2015. Not sure who has custody of that child.

    Sky Metalwala missing for six years and counting

    Monday marks six years since the disappearance of 2-year-old Sky Metalwala and Bellevue police are still looking for tips to help find him.

    Bellevue police say the search has cost over $2 million and has garnered more than 2,500 tips.

    Anyone with information about the case can call Captain John McCracken from the Bellevue Police Department at (425) 452-7658 or email JMccracken@bellevuewa.gov.


    Bellevue police still searching for answers in disappearance of Sky Metalwala 6 years later

    Bellevue police announced Monday the sixth anniversary of the day a 2-year-old Bellevue boy went missing.

    Bellevue police continue to seek leads in the case. To date, investigators with the FBI, Bellevue Police Department, and Redmond Police Department have pursued over 2,500 tips, spent over 14,000 hours and more than $2 million in this lengthy investigation.

    Yet, Sky remains missing.

    Police officials say they remain hopeful this case will be solved. In May 2017, an age progressed photo showing what Sky would look like as a 7-year-old boy was released.

    Police plead for help in search for missing boy

    Bellevue police are asking locals for help in the cold case of a missing child who vanished more than seven years ago without a trace.

    Sky Metalwala went missing when he was two years old on Nov. 6, 2011, and police have released a call for help, along with an age-progressed photo, on the anniversary of his disappearance for the past two years. Bellevue, Redmond and FBI investigators have pursued more than 2,500 tips, investing 14,000 hours and $2 million into the lengthy investigation.

    Sky’s ninth birthday was on Sept. 2.

    “I hope that one day I can say that Sky has been found,” said Bellevue police Maj. Pat Spak in a 2016 interview. “While time can often be a disadvantage, sometimes it can also be an advantage.”

    Mother of Sky Metalwala still won’t talk to Bellevue police 7 years after son’s disappearance

    It has been more than seven years since young Sky Metalwala disappeared from Bellevue.

    The who, what, where, and why has been challenged, and dismissed long ago. Bellevue police say they don't believe the story the 2-year old's mother, Julia Biryukova, initially told detectives.

    It was all background for what seemed to be a run-of-the-mill court case in Redmond on Thursday. Biryukova, now Julia Morgan, accused her ex-husband of violating a no-contact order. Biryukova remarried after Sky's disappearance and had another son. The marriage went south after that, based on her testimony.

    She was argumentative at times during her roughly two hours on the stand and seemed foggy on details regarding the alleged no-contact violation. At one point the district judge warned her and an attorney of contempt of court. But after cooler heads prevailed, Biryukova did make an admission, when asked if she was not allowed to be alone with her son without a monitor.

    "Correct," she said sheepishly.

    Child Protective Services did not immediately return requests for comment about the current case, or whether she still sees Sky's sister Maile, who was considered a witness at the time and is now 11.

    It has been previously reported that since Sky's disappearance, Biryukova was arrested for theft, diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder, and that the state has been supervising the care of her child.

    "We do believe she knows where Sky is,” Bellevue Police Spokesperson Seth Tyler said Thursday.

    However, Biryukova has rejected all attempts at an interview or polygraph, according to Tyler. He also said the department had been asked why it doesn't at least arrest Biryukova for child endangerment. Tyler said legal advice has suggested it would be a difficult case to prove since the alleged victim is missing.

    Biryukova seemed caught off guard when questioned by KING 5 on Thursday, only offering up a smile at the mention of Sky's name as she walked from the courthouse.

    Where is Sky? Seven years later, perhaps only one person still holds the key.

    Well I guess that would make him REALLY DAMN ENDANGERED THEN, wouldn't it?
    Ugh. So frustrating.
  18. Kimster

    Kimster Director Staff Member

    I agree! She should be arrested for endangerment, I don't care what they think. Let it go to trial and maybe she'll lose and some of these law enforcement agencies will have more courage in the future.

    Has it really been 7 years

    She should have been done for child endangerment
