If it is, indeed her ... then I guess this will bring some closure to the family. I pray for strength for all involved. This is such a tragic story. Please, everybody take a step back and try to be civil ... this is not the time for any more petty, uncouth arguments. This is a time to be quiet and let the police do their jobs.

This is so upsetting. But, now that they know it is actually her, they can start to get some real answers about what happened. I hope they can figure that out for sure. And, if it was suicide ... why? Oh, poor Kelly ...

I don't know what else to say. This is the most tragic story I've heard in a long time.

Blessings and condolences to the family of whomever this turns out to be. I wonder how whoever did this can live with themselves.

The psychic from the UK said it would be suicide. Care to call her out on this?

I've been following this case and it concerned me that the police was possibly brushing aside this woman's disappearance and not taking it seriously because she wasn't in one of those "attention getting" demographics. She was an adult, not some cute child, single, not a mom, etc. Think about Morgan Harrington, Lacy Peterson etc. The media goes crazy for the young, the white, the childed etc.

Kelly Catalano told a neighbor that she was afraid someone had been in her house or copied one of her keys out of her purse while she was at work. On the day she went missing one of the doors to her house was open.

The police assumed suicide, even though Ms. Catalano's nephew came here immediately from out of state when she went missing. The police cited some flimsy reasons, such as Ms. Catalano asking someone whether they believed in Heaven and that one person from her workplace saw her running toward the river. She was already suspicious at least one of her co-workers.

I just hope the police investigated this case with care. We'll find out eventually, I suppose. My sympathies go to her family and in particular to her nephew. They talked on the phone every day.

I agree that they shouldn't assume that someone committed suicide simply based on conversations with people about what happens after death. Those conversations could have been based on a fear she had of being targeted by someone. Unless a suicide note was found or some other concrete evidence that she intended to take her own life, I don't think that should be an automatic assumption.

Either way, it is a tragic end to the story. I always hope in such missing person cases for a happy ending. Sadly, that doesn't usually happen. I hope her family can get the answers they need.
