Yet he will not even try to solve the missing Blantons from early fall. Wonder if it was his family, would it garner more attention?

How do you know this? Was it in print somewhere? Did he make a statement? I've seen several posts here about the drug problem and no one doing anything yet obviously something was being done. They just didn't feel obligated to let the world know they were gathering evidence on people before arresting them.

I'm sure the missing couple is being investigated by authorities with more capable means of applying forensic science. The drug issues are more his forte.

I think the FBI and Forensics is working on this case along with anything the police can get from this area. The son is tight lipped and being a lifelong criminal and time on his side he knew how to get away with murder. But just wait it will be solved but it will take time.

They have to be. This area isn't equipped or trained well enough to handle such cases as this. Keep in mind, in the event that he did dispose of bodies that we have a vast are for him to have done so. I'm not saying that is the case, just hypothetically.

I think you are 100% correct on that. If the locals can't handle a situation, they are wise to call on the more advanced units to investigate the problem. You seem like a very wise individual.

. I totally agree! These dopers are going to kill themselves anyways. It's been posted that lack of funding is the reason he's letting this case go cold..bs. Plenty of money to do a 7mth. Investigation on a few pill heads, pot smokers and a meth lab, yet a mother sits and cries her heart day and night out over her missing daughter. I'm sick to death of both Mr. Price and his sidekick Mrs Priceless!!!
