Melissa McGuinn: Baby missing since 1988 from Trenton

Melissa had reddish-blonde hair when she was a baby and it could be that color or even dark brown like her mother's.  

Melissa McGuinn, born Aug. 3, 1987,  was only 7-months-old when she went missing from her home on the 600 block of Lamberton StreetTrenton, NJ on March 6, 1988.

Wanda Reed, who had the mental capacity of a 6-year-old were sharing a home with the McGuinns.  Reed had an infant son and Becky and her would take turns watching each other's baby.  Reed walked out of the house with Melissa and returned later alone.  She told authorities she had given the baby away to throwing her into the river.  Wanda was evaluated as unfit to stand trial.

Becky McGuinn House, Melissa's mother and Anna Canard who has been working on the case believes that Melissa is still alive, but does not know what happened to her.  With attention brought to the case there is a possibility that Melissa might realize that she is the baby that went missing 26-years-ago.

“It's just a matter of time before she recognizes herself or someone else recognizes her or someone else who was afraid to say something back that might come forward and say ‘hey you know what, I know what happened',” Canard said.

Reed said she took Melissa because she got more attention than her son.

There is one person the police are waiting for results of a DNA test to see if she is the missing Melissa.  Three other people have been ruled out. 

Detective Paul Sciortino, Stajanov has been re-interviewing witnesses  in an effort to finally new leads, reports the Daily Mail.
'I absolutely believe that she's still out there,' said Sciortino.

Robert Earl McGuinn, Melissa's father died in 2008.  Becky is still alive and residing in Arkansas.

Jenise Wright: Who is to blame for her death?

UPDATE 8/11/14:  The name Gabe Gaeta has come out on social media as the person who has been arrested for the murder of Jenise Wright, by a relative on Facebook that was defending him.  It is hard to believe after learning more about him and reading his posts that he had anything to do with it.

A unsubstantiated post read that neighbors had also let his name out, "His neighbors who saw him arrested leaked his name as well, and there is talk that he attended her vigil in fake mourning, and that this was a planned attack with a second male accomplice...the press release said he confessed already as well..." 

I have not seen or read any press release. 

Gabe is also a member of Ask.FM and has left a string of comments there since last year.  One quote from his account is, "What is the most dangerous animal? Me" and
"If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?
Gabe Gaeta."  A lot of comments that shows a young man talking a lot of bravado.  Whether it was meant to impress or intimidate is hard to know. 


Gabe was a wrestler and you can click here to read an article and see a photo of him and his brother Zeke.

There is a lot more to this story I am sure.  I believe there are more surprises to come.


Gabe looks more like a high schooler here in this photo.

Previous story: 

Although no one has been named as the killer of missing 6-year-old East Bremerton girl, Jenise Wright, whose body was found yesterday in a wooded area near the Steele Creek Mobile Home Park, many will blame her parents.

Some will outright accuse the parents for having a hand in her death, while others will blame them because they did not supervise their daughter and let her run wild through the mobile home park.
Jenise Wright was found in the woods close to
her home
Not so long ago, in the grand scope of the age of the world, but a life time for some, children running wild through a neighborhood was what ever parent let their child do.  I remember my beloved aunt would nod her head and take a sip of her scotch and briefly wave at my cousin's and I as we yelled in passing that we would be back later.  We were never asked where we were going or when we would be back.

Another friend of mine, had a completely different upbringing and was required to have their mother watch them walk down the street to a friends house or ride their bicycle.  Many neighborhood kids snickered at him and neighborhood parents, ts-tsked and shook their heads that the boy would grow up a sissy as his mother was over-protective.

Around this time, Harper Lee wrote a book about a brother and sister and next door neighbor that ran the neighborhood  in the deep south in the mid 1930's.  No one thought it odd that the children in the book and subsequently the movie that came later, were out the door running the neighborhood till the sun came down.   

About a decade later, things began to change.  Maybe it was the disappearance of Etan Patz, or the kidnapping of Steven Stayner, who reemerged in 1980, or the case of Adam Walsh that was abducted while his parents were shopping, that made parent's wary of letting their children run lose. 
Etan Patz walked to the bus stop
alone while his mom watched.  He
went missing along the way and has
never been found.
Parents began to watch where they went and scrutinized the parents of their friends, and becoming what used to be called over-protective. Now it was being called a responsible parent.

Parents began walking with their children during Halloween and to and fro from school.  July became quiet as children of the summer replaced bicycles with XBoxes.  As computer games and game consoles grew in popularity, less children were playing outside.  The age of video games seemed to arrive just in time to keep a child safe and inside the home and it was accepted and perhaps welcomed by many relieved parents, who were worried that their child might be snatched when their back was turned.

Jenise, whose wandering throughout the neighborhood would have been a normal thing decades back, is now thought to be wrong. 

In a recent study done in the last two-years, nearly three-quarters of the parents surveyed said they feared their child may be abducted.  What a thing to have to consider each and every moment of your child's life.  No wonder we are content with letting them stay inside and play video games.  

Subsequently, social media is finding Jenise's case strange and it is making them angry because they cannot even fathom why Jenise's parents did not monitor her.  Why she was so free that they did not call the police till the next day after she went missing.  In other words, why they did not show the same fear as a majority of parents and not worry about her being abducted.

Adam Walsh was abducted at Sears
in Florida while his parents were
shopping.
Remember that human nature tends to blame the victim.  Since Jenise was a child, she will be exonerated and the blame will go to her parents, but should it?

Because they chose to let their child run unsupervised, something that was totally acceptable 40 years ago, and is still acceptable in many parts of the US, do they warrant our finger-pointing?

Shouldn't the blame be specifically on the person that killed her?  In our society, rape victims are blamed for wearing short skirts or low tops, insisting it caused a rapist to act.  Doesn't a person have a right to wear whatever they want, without fear of being singled out or scrutinized for causing someone to act our violently?  Would the rapist not have attacked them if they were wearing modest clothing?  Unlikely, they would have attacked regardless.

Without a doubt, if Jenise would have been kept inside she would still be alive today, but it would not have stopped the murderer.  The murderer would have just chosen another victim.

As angry as we may be that Jenise's parents let her run free, they did not do it so that she would become a sacrificial lamb, they did it because they admired her free spirit.  They did it because that is the way they grew up.  The thought that she would be snatched was the farthest thing from their mind.  

Were they ignorant?  Not necessarily so, as percentage shows that  in the most recent statistics by the U.S. Dept. of Justice, "only 100 children were kidnapped by nonfamily members in 1999 and half were murdered."  Of all murdered children under age 5  from 1976-2005, 3% were killed by strangers as compared to 60% killed by their own parents, and the remainder people they know, including friends.  With statistics like that  you could say that kids outside, mingling with strangers, have a better chance of not being murdered.

I am heartbroken to tell you all that my beautiful husband, Terry Mullen, the man I have loved for over 19 years is gone. Terry's body was discovered yesterday at Mussel Rock. We are absolutely devastated and wish we could wake up from this nightmare. I am sorry not to be able to notify people directly. I just can't deal with that right now. Please understand that I won't respond to any of you right now. I can only take things moment by moment. I did want to tell you all because you've been so concerned. Thank you all for continued prayers and love. My husband was a gentle, kindhearted man. My heart is broken. Cherish your loved ones!

Previous story:

"His name is Terry Mullen. He is (almost) 45 years old and is 6 foot tall. He weighs about 150ish. Last seen at home in Daly City around 11:15pm on the night of August 7th, wearing dark pants and a hoodie that is green with white stripes. He is driving a red 94 Ford Taurus, license plate 3DVC905.

He was very despondent yesterday, depressed, extremely anxious, and definitely not himself. He has been very depressed lately, and he was more depressed yesterday than he's ever been. His cell phone is missing, but he left his wallet at home.

All my attempts to track his phone have failed, as it seems that his GPS is turned off. I'm sick with worry, as I love my husband very much. Today is our 16th wedding anniversary. Please help me find him."
Help spread the word and hope that we can help Terry find her husband.

Gabe is also a member of Ask.FM and has left a string of comments there since last year.  One quote from his account is, "What is the most dangerous animal? Me" and
"If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?
Gabe Gaeta," and "If you feel stressed what would you do to reduce it?
Eat, sleep, and beat someone up. Instant relief." But, it could be said it was nothing more than a lot of bravado with no substance.

I believe that Gabe is going to be in court today, so more information will come out on the case.  Is there another person connected to the case?  Is there more to this story that helps explain what happened?  I hope so, because this whole thing just doesn't add up right now. 

 UPDATE: 8/9/14 - The police have arrested a 17-year-old male for the death of Jenise.  The teen lived in the same Bremerton mobile home park that Jenise lived at, said the Kitsape County Sheriff's Office.  He will be interviewed and booked with possible charges of 2nd degree mrder, manslaughter and rape.


The teens DNA matched forensic evidence. 

UPDATE 8/8/14 - Police are asking everyone to think back and remember if they saw someone with muddy shoes or boots, muddy pants and possible a muddy shirt.  They believe whoever is responsible for her death would have come out of the wooded area caked in mud.  The body found yesterday has been confirmed to belong to Jenise.

UPDATE 8/7/14 - Authorities may have found the body of Jenise in a forested area near the mobile home park.

There has been no official identification, but the body is of a child.

“The K-9s were so instrumental in locating the body of Jenise today. We couldn’t have done it without them,” said Frank Montoya Jr., FBI Special Agent in Charge of the Seattle office told NY Daily News.

UPDATE:  8/6/14 - The parents of Jenise have taken a lie detector test, but the results have not been released.

Authorities state that even though court documents revealed James Wright, Jenise's father had been charged with molesting a step daughter in 1999, he is not a suspect, reports Yahoo news.   He plead guilty to assault and the molestation charges were  dropped.

Authorities state that at this writing half of the mobile home park has been searched and every car leaving and coming to the park is being searched.

Previous story:  August 4, 2014 - Jenise Pauletter Wright is missing from Bremerton, Wash.

Kitsap County Sheriff Dept. said that Jenise was seen Saturday night in her bed at her home at the Steele Creek Mobile Home Park on 1438 Steele Creek Drive in East Bremerton at 10 p.m. , but not reported missing until Sunday night. 

Jenise has gone missing before from her home and was found wandering the neighborhood.  The family told police on Sunday they had gone door-to-door looking for her and after not finding her reported her missing.

The case reminds me of another little girl, Charitie Angelique Careins, 7, who went missing on August 5, 1988.  Neighbors who talked to the media stated she was often out at night asking to play with their children and seemed to have no curfew, and was seen far away from her home on Betty Avenue.  She was also very independent and talked with everyone.  It particularly hits home to me as I remember my father, who was living in the Pacific Beach area at the time told me about this little girl who would come to the neighborhood to play with the neighborhood kids and would stop and talk with him when he was outside watering.  He became worried for her because he kept seeing her walking down the busy Grand Avenue at night, and wanted my opinion on whom he should call.  It was only days later when we heard that she had gone missing.   Charitie's remains were found almost a year later at San Timoteo Canyon in Riverside County.  

The Washington Child Protective Services had taken a 8 and 12-year-old child from the home. 

Jenise is 3 feet tall and 45 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
