You can read my first post about Erica Parsons HERE. When I first heard about this adorable teenager who was recently reported missing after two years, I was pretty shocked. I mean, how could her parents not have reported their daughter missing right away? I was disgusted when I wrote that first post, and I’m even more disgusted now.
Police released search warrants this week from their search of the Parsons’ home, and some of the items they retrieved are pretty disturbing:
- Arizona pants with red stains
- Plastic bag with JonBenet Ramsey magazines
- Carpet pieces from floor of closet
- Drywall cut and removed from closet area with red stains (tested for blood by SA Yu) (Rear wall of closet)
- Baseboards from closet with red stains
- Flooring cut and removed from doorway of Room F closet. Red stains on boards
- Two large knives wrapped in shrink wrap
- White envelope sealed with “Erica Theeth” and object
- JonBenet book with notes inside about remodeling house
I’m not even sure where to begin here, but that looks like a lot of suspicious blood stains, and a closet is a pretty strange place to find traces of blood. And the JonBenet Ramsey books and magazines? I admittedly can’t judge on that alone. If police were to search my place, they would definitely find all sorts of true crime books, but at the same time, I certainly don’t have a missing relative.
Dr. Drew covered Erica’s case on his show last night, which I thought was pretty interesting.
One other thing I noticed is that the media seems to keep referring to Erica as a “special needs” child, but I haven’t exactly been able to figure out why yet.
UPDATE: 8/21 8:40 PM
Dr. Drew covered Erica’s case again on his show tonight, and he said that Erica’s father took a polygraph test and was asked the following questions:
- Did you deliberately cause Erica’s disappearance?
- Did you have a plan to cause Erica’s disappearance?
He answered no to both questions, and his answers were deemed “strongly deceptive” by the polygraph administrator. After her husband failed the test, Erica’s mom refused to take one.
UPDATE: 9/10 3:47 PM
According to the Salisbury Post, investigators are now confirming that Irene Goodman, the grandmother the Parsons’ say Erica went to live with, does not exist. Not only that, but they confirmed that Erica’s real biological grandmother, Chloe Goodman, died in 2005.
WHERE IS ERICA?
