Didn't this girl have three kids and was only 20 or so? Something wrong there.

She was 21. Has 3 children. What's wrong with that? You need to quit judging people.

Well Flip:

I think a person can have a hundred children AS LONG AS THEY ARE ABLE TO SUPPORT AND TAKE CARE OF THEM and not depend on the taxpayers to pay - such as HUD, FOOD STAMPS, CHECKS, WIC - the works as so many do. That would be the only problem I would have with it.

Our system is going broke by druggies running to hospitals because of overdoses, bad drugs or just to try to get a BUZZ (not to mention medical care needed for their victims) and by people having children they can't take care of and KNOW they will never be able to unless they marry somebody rich or something.

I have no clue, but I do believe I've heard this gal worked and tried to help herself so it's really her business in that case.

I've been reading this thread for a while. I see the billboards , always like the page on fb to share it. I didn't know Melanie , but the fact that ppl always bring drugs and how many children she has is irrelevant. She is a human being that has been missing for all this time and no one knows what happened. How do you think her children and family feel ? Watch what you say before trashing a mothers character. You wouldn't say these things if it were your daughter. Praying that your family gets answers.

Did her family ever check into the tip about johnny mitchel? I heard from sources that he was in fact involved and then reading the comment that was posted before on this thread about him being seen with a shovel and covered in blood but was burying a deer is a little odd. I heard he did it and had help hiding her body up Witcher Creek under cement? Maybe you can find out information there just a tip though. Best of luck and prayers

hmm - don't know a Johnny Mitchell - as I've said I heard it was a guy named Terry who was caught coming out of woods in Putney with a shovel. Interesting though. True, no sense at all in wondering if she did drugs at all - the main thing is she is missing. It may be at the hands of a shady "buzzed" person or at the hands of someone for a reason that is beyond our comphrension.

Everybody makes mistakes and wrong decisions as they grow up and most of them with a little age and wisdom under their belt look back at them as JUST A REBELLIOUS or "learning" time like us older people WHO USED to drink while driving, etc - by the grace of God - we lived to an older age though we made wrong decisions. Just look around Kanawha county and see how many of our kids this plague has taken. The young kids today need so much to be educated "even if by example" to be afraid, very afraid of even being "curious about drugs".

One of the scary thing is IT'S BEEN PROVEN over and over how addicted the meth/crack drugs are but there will always be those who will experiment and FALL IN THE PITFALL of addiction. Again - in my day POT was the drug of choice and again when I got older, I realized to stop doing that. It is a fact that so so so many of our young children are being trapped in this merry go round and it raises the possibility of harm coming to them. So glad I don't have any young children now.

2 words Charles March. Melanie looks like she could have been Kathy Goble's daughter. Put the pictures of the 2 side by side and you will see how much they look alike. I will never believe that Goble was the first person that March killed and Metheny's vehicle was found not too far from Kellys Mens Shop on the West Side, where March had worked for years. If he could kill his co-worker and bury her in his front yard, he could kill just about anyone.

Terry Shamblin - now in jail for home invasion on gap view drive that happened a month or so ago as well as other charges. Also I had heard that for years anybody that got arrested from this area was grilled about if they had any information on Melaine - don't know how true that info is. But this guy has been arrested many times since that, so he may have alread been ruled out.

Thing is I agree some of these people either saw more or were TOLD by the person or person(s) involved and usually when thieves or druggies are arrested, they'll gladly give information about a more serious crime - to cut a plea deal - Does the police keep you informed about anybody they have ruled out or in???

Drug Free is a retard. Uneducated, uniformed, and hiding behind your fake name. You are talking but nothing you say is true or relevant. There is a long line of people in this family that will see this thru till the truth is known. So like I said quit hiding behind your name and shut your mouth. I'm not hiding right here in Belle and will shut it for you if you don't like what I had to say.

I understand about doing your own INVESTIGATION, but there are so many bad people you may come in contact with that you could be in danger by trying to talk to them. Besides that - anybody involved with someoone who would do that and keep quiet all this time - is most likely a shady criminal themselves and would just lead you off track??.

I know this is "early" but after 7 years missing and a persoon is usually declared as deceased - would you be eligible for the CRIME VICTIM'S FUND to give you monies ??? If so, then hire a reputable private investigator - you could call well known good attorneys to get a reference for one.

It is hard when you are emotionally involved to get a lot of evidence together/etc in a logistical and time frame manner- an investigator when talking to potential witnesses, etc. would get affidavants/tapes, etc. for evidence. I can understand your distrust but the investigator would be working FOR THE PERSON WHO PAYS THEM and would most likely do a much better job than the detectives in this area who are flooded with current and more recent crimes to solve.

he may know something for he has been in and out of trouble for 20 years and in and out of jail - so somehow he makes some types of bargains to keep them swinging doors - he's done the most serious thing he's ever done this time, by that home invasion and assaulting an old man so he'll probably desperately try to tell all he can to get out of as much trouble as possible.

But he has been known to lie an awfully lot - and even pathological liars can pass lie detector tests so no matter what he'd say, it would show he was telling the truth?? have to wait and see. He used to run with Keven Porterfield and the McBrides all shady - very shady people.

don't know tonya personally, but knew she was with Terry when that happened. But don't believe she was messing with Terry when Melaine disappeared.

Is she from Springfork - there are Blounts from up there and I had heard that Melaine's van was seen up there not long before she disappeared also.
