We may never find her due to Richy, Jody and the rest not having sense to question the mother better!

Now all the volunteers have trampled over any evidence out in the crime scene

Crime scene was processed a long time ago and the ASP investigators have been interrogating everyone as well. The Feds have been here for several days as well. They haven't found anything other than what our local authorities had. If she is indeed never found it will not be the fault of Dotson or Thatcher.

I tell you, I think we are very lucky to have Dotson and Thatcher at the front of the investigation. One of the things I like is that they called in outside professionals immediately to give them assistance. They have been fully dedicated in this effort as I see it and if it was my loved one missing I would be proud to have them heading up the investigation because now I know they would not only use their best knowledge but they would get the FBI and State Police involved on the front end.

AGREE!If the FBI is here it is because the locals invited them. There have not been any Federal laws broken that we know of and they would have to have been invited to come and help. The same for the military help. Locals have done as well as anyone could on this. One has even gotten a broken collar bone during the search. And few have slept much for the past several days.
Back off! By the way - how much searching have you done?

well they may have called for outside help, but they did'nt use it. they would meet and get the directions for the area to search. when they got on site the deputies and constables would change everything, stand around for 45 min doing nothing and then take an early lunch. one day we only searched for 2 hours out of 7. theirs needs to be some house cleaning and maybe some charges against these local heros for obstruction.

Most days the were all gathered at the WRPD hospitality suite. It's hard to find out much when you are just standing around BS'n and "competing for a media spot". It's very sad.
just my thoughts

It's all about the spotlight. But who you going to hire around here worth two cents? All literate law enforcement people go to Jonesboro or work for the State. We're stuck with dead beats worse than the people they arrest.

You need to be very careful when you lump everyone together like you have! Many of these deputies are the ones giving this search 110% of their time. I suggest you back off!
And I ash the other person who said they sat around and 'BSed', who was it? WRPD? Or LCSO? Think about it.

Wife, you are correct. I did lump and shouldn't have. And your husband is probably a fine, dedicated officer. But, the deputies and local police need better leadership. Your better officers know this but obviously cannot complain. Dotson and Thatcher are simply not up to the job and their own people know it. Many hope some people with credentials and character will come forward in the next election to fill several of the offices in need of leadership. The people of this county desperately need more than they are presently receiving. Media propaganda is just that. Defeating Dotson, House and Freeman and replacing them with just some half way honest people would help our county tremendously. Many people feel this way.

Well, he's already run for mayor and judge but got beat. Just sour grapes from the former Mayor or his lackey's.

Ask any of the State people and they will tell you we have some darn good police leadership up here.

Any prior relationship/friends/family status between Denise and any of the local investigators?

It is easy to point fingers and to say what you would do in this situation. Truth is you dont know what you would in any given situation until you are in that same exact situation.

Denise is a sister-in-law to a city employee which happens to be one of the favored of the Mayor.

Sorry, but I think she is a great neice of a city employee's wife. What does that have to do with the multi-police agency investigation? Try spending you time finding Sidney?

I'm guessing wife is a wife of one of wrpd's finest. And has her opinion of what her hubby does. But as a citizen of walnut ridge I think they spend more time herrassing teenagers than they do looking for a missing one. It's not just walnut ridge. It's becoming far to comin in small town pd's. kids are easy targets for dumb cops. The real cops are going for big fish and not a tadpole out being young kids. They would rather mess a young persons life up(in the name of prevention)as to going out and doing the work to catch real criminals.
