This is the first time I’ve used my blog to post about a missing person. People go missing every day but I guess this one hits more particularly because it’s so close to home and from my hometown. I figured if I can’t do anything physically, I could at least use my blog in some way to spread the word a little more.
Brookfield has always been such a humble little town. Not many people know where it is, when you tell people you’re from there they look at you like you have three heads. Not much happens there. So when something like this occurs, it’s a pretty big thing. And it brings people out of the woodwork. Like the psychic/mediums.
Now I’ve had personal experiences with mediums and I would call them more “mediums” than psychic. To me a psychic is someone who can predict the future. I don’t really feel there are people who can do that. A medium is someone who can talk to the dead. That I know is a fact and have experienced it myself. But someone on YouTube giving out “clues” as to this woman’s alleged whereabouts because they’re a “psychic” is just plain nuts. To believe anything she says is even more nuts.
As for the searches, I know a lot of people have put a lot into them, from every day citizens to dive teams and all the authorities in between. Reading all the articles regarding this case leaves more questions in many minds than answers. Too much media can lead to so much confusion, assumptions, guesses, theories, etc.
In speaking about theories, I guess you could say I have one of my own. In everything I’ve read about the searches and where the searches have taken place, i.e., the woods, backyards, bodies of water, etc., there is one thing that I have not read about being searched. I’m hoping/assuming the authorities have checked the various dumpsters in and around Brookfield. And I’m hoping/assuming they would know that said dumpsters are emptied at least once a week or bi-weekly (or I’m assuming so). And if said businesses that have said dumpsters have cameras focused on them, make sure they are checked. I’m not going to go further in on the theory, but I’m just putting that out there. Because it’s logical. And it’s something that would be time sensitive.
I do hope, for the family’s sake anyway, there soon are answers and closure of some sort.
