McStay Family: Accused murder will represent himself

I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall when Robert Ponce, the attorney representing Chase Merritt, who has been charged with the murder of the McStay family found out that Chase had kicked him to the curb on Friday.

In another surprising turn of events,  Judge Michael Smith of the San Bernardino Court, gave Chase permission to represent himself. 

Ponce spoke to the Judge as one of his last actions representing Chase and told him about Chases’s desire to get the case moving faster, and felt that if he represented himself it would. 

“He (Chase) says he has six to eight months to live,” Ponce told the Judge, reports the Union Tribune,

The media was hoping hat the Judge would also unseal some more search warrants pertaining to the case, but the requests were denied.  Which probably means that there is information there that if let out to the public would tarnish the trial.  

Although the saying goes, if you are representing yourself, you are representing a fool, Ponce must not feel this is the case here as he said he felt that Chase has the intellectual ability to do it.  I guess Ponce doesn't realize that  in other words, he is saying that a guy like Chase could pass the bar with a little studying, which is not saying much for his profession.  

The Judge did do his due diligence and told Ponce that “self-representation is generally considered an unwise move.”  Chase replied with a simple, "Yes."  

How does Chase think that he can do what an attorney and his staff would spend hours upon hours working on?  I don't know, but according to Patrick McStay, he thinks it because Chase will be allowed more freedom, so he can go to the law library and get out of his cell. 

The next court date is Feb. 20, and the prelim will be April 7.

Christopher and Lisa Zaharias: Children missing since 1987 from Santa Ana

Christopher and Lisa Zaharias have been missing since Nov. 20, 1987 from Santa Ana, Calif.

Christopher Louis would be 30 and Lisa Mae would be 28.

Christopher and Susan could have been raised under another name and not even be aware that they have a father that has been searching for them for 27 years.  They also could have been told their father is dead or didn't' want them.  They may also think that someone else is their biological father. 

Please think back in your memory see if you remember possibly playing with these two children as a child or maybe seeing them during summer vacation and played with them.  Maybe looking at the photos and it stirs some memory of actually meeting them years ago when you were small.  If you think you might have some information, no matter how small, please leave a tip here or go to the Zaharias Facebook page where there is many more photos for you to look at.

Timothy J. Potter: Missing since 2007 From Missouri

Timothy James Potter, born October 17, 1966, is approximately 48 years old this year. Tim was last seen around 2a.m. on Jan. 19, 2007, at a friends home in the Huffman Trailer Park. 

His family was not aware of Tim’s disappearance until a couple days later when Tim’s employer, the G and D Steak House stated that Tim had not shown up for work. They thought that maybe he had gone to his uncle's funeral in Potosi, Missouri, but after asking around they found he was never seen there. Tim was very close to his uncle and was extremely upset about his uncle's passing, so the fact that he did not show up to attend the funeral was odd.

Tim drove a 1985 Cadillac Deville, and it was at the trailer park, until a short time later when a man driving a purplish blue pick-up with tanks in the back retrieved the vehicle stating that Tim had arranged for him to fix it. The paperwork and registration was missing from the vehicle.

If you have any information about Tim's disappearance please call the Rolla Police dept. at 573-308-1213.

The Mcstay Case: Search Warrants unsealed and confusion follows

McStay Family
The original search warrants executed by SDPD by Det. Dugal were unsealed on Friday, Jan. 23, 2015.

What is found in those search warrants is very confusing if you compare it to what the authorities said while the McStay family was missing.  For example, Det. Dugal stated in the search warrants to the Judge that he felt that the family had been either kidnapped or killed.  Specifically, on February 19, 2010, Detective Troy DuGal of the San Diego County Sheriff's Department, wrote, "...It is my opinion the McStay family is the victim of foul play."

This is completely the opposite of his words when he spoke with Patrick McStay and also what he told to the media.  It wasn't long after finding the family's missing car parked at the border that the authorities began perusing video surveillance tapes from the crossing and came across one that showed the video of "the family" walking into  Mexico.  Instead of keeping this info to themselves, they shared the video with the media and the public, along with their statements they believed it was the McStays.  This shifted the whole case and the public was led down the garden path that the family was fleeing, and didn't want to be found anyway and not to think there was any foul play associated with this case anymore.  San Diego Sheriff Bill Gore, just two months ago told NBC 7 news that it was a “missing persons case,” not a homicide investigation.

Has Gore gone lazy, lost his investigative senses or was he trying to save the department money by labeling, what we now know is an obvious murder case, as a voluntarily missing case

We also found that the information about the eggs on the counter and popcorn bowls probably came from the warrant:  Two small bowls of popcorn were sitting on a couch in the living room and in the kitchen, and there was a carton of raw eggs and a bag of microwave popcorn on the counter.  But nothing was ever brought out about the  knocked over lamp, until the search warrant was opened on Friday. 

Also, a list of the items taken by the authorities show that they collected cell phones and Joseph's wallet were found in the home, in addition to all computers, camera's and camcorders and suitcases full of clothing.  But what about the cell phone pings showing the family driving around the Fallbrook area for a few days.

After the arrest of Chase Merritt, the San Bernadino police said they believed the family was killed in the home.  So, what did the SBCSD know that the SDPD and SDCSD did not know?  Why could the SBCSD state without fear of contradiction or being proved wrong say the family was killed in the home, and even say how, but SDPD and SDCSD that wandered around the home for days could not state, let alone conclude?  Did SBCSD do a forensic investigation that I believe the SDPD or SBCSD never did?
Chase Merritt has been charged with the
murders of the McStay's.
So, we are left with questions after questions that we can theorize the answers to, in hopes to bring some kind of explanation to this case.  These are my questions:

Why did Dugal change his thoughts early on in the investigation, or did he, but was directed to say something else or keep quiet.  What happened that caused him from saying the family was kidnapped or killed to pulling items out of the home to saying they crossed the border?  Why didn't Dugal have the forensic team go in before items were taken out of the house.  Did after the items were pulled out of the home and the car found at the border, did they assume there was no more investigation needed to be done, and their first thoughts about the fate of the McStay's were wrong OR was there a higher power that told them their instincts were wrong and the video proved that?

AND, if Dugal's believed the McStay's were killed, why wasn't a forensic team brought in to examine the home?  Was he not allowed to bring in a forensic team?  Was a higher power telling him that there was no money for that or it was a waste of time because the family walked away? 

I can't help but wonder if after the video tape surface, the case was shut down by someone higher up, possible Gore, within the police force and the officer's on the case were told to not work on it any longer because there new stance now was that the family crossed the border.  And their job now was to keep pushing that idea on to anyone that asked about the case, in spite of what the investigating team thought.  This may explain why the forensic team was not sent into the house.

Read more about Gore and a federal complaint and his connection to the Ruby Ridge case in 1992. 

Now that we know they were killed in the home.  How could the SDPD and the SDSD miss that fact and the SBCSD did not.  To quote Patrick McStay:

"San Bernardino says that they believe that it all happened in the home. You mean to tell me that they can figure that out and San Diego can't?"

I wonder if a lot of these high profile cases that go behind the Wizard of Oz curtain ("Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain") are put there by the forces in charge.  Why not tell the public that the McStay's went to Mexico, when you already believe they are probably dead and you don't want to spend the money going after someone when you don't have any bodies to prove they murdered the people.  Tell the public that a young woman, Rebecca Zahau committed suicide (see notes below), so you don't have to pursue a murder, that you probably could never find, as they have disappeared in the wind. Tell the public that a teenager was a victim, even though the students closest to her, believe to this day that she had a hand in her mother and brother's own murder. You killed the only witness anyway, so how are you going to prove it.  Over and over again we are seeing cases that are difficult to prosecute are stopped before they are thoroughly investigated.   Because I am not in the inner workings of the SDPD or the SDSD, I can only wonder why these cases were not pursued further.  But, I can't help but feel that the Wizard of Oz excuse is being used a lot lately, and I can't help but wonder why.  We will never really know if what I am wondering about is true or not, unless someone in the system comes out and says. But, I do know that is highly unlikely.  There is not many who would sacrifice being ostracized, let alone lose their pension, to set the record straight.

There is a lot more to come for this case and even possible more search warrants revealed, as CBS News and other media organizations are asking for the search warrants filed later in the investigation by the SBCSD and the pre-preliminary hearing for Merritt is scheduled for Jan. 30.

I do feel that the real truth will come out now that it is in the hands of the SBCSD and more will be revealed about the handling of this case by the SDSD.

Note 1: "In summer 2011, it was the infamous Coronado Mansion murders, I mean, "suicide" and "accident" that got folks all riled up at the perceived incompetency of the San Diego Sheriff. In summer 2013, it was the hands-off behavior that Gore exhibited while handling the Hannah Anderson "ordeal."  There were several surveillance more videos that captured Hannah and DiMaggio together. Why didn't the SDSD ever pick those videos up?  They would have certainly have shown whether Hannah was really a victim or not.  Click here to read more of this CNN article." 

Note 2: The SDSD stated that the bed  which the rope was tied to, moved the bed several feet.  The SDSD said the bed moved 7.5 inches, but the re-enactment that News 8 did showed the bed moved about 5 times farther.  Regardless, the bottom line is that the SDSD should have done their own re-enactment.  Why didn't they? (Click here to see the News 8 reenactment of the case and draw your own conclusions).

Mr an Mrs Runion; Update: Autopsy GBI Crime lab Murder Charges on Two Bodies Found in Elrey and June Runion: Senior couple disappear after going to buy car on Craigslist

Funeral service will be held for Bud and June Runion on Saturday, January 31st at 1:00 p.m. at Mt. Paran North Church of God, 1700 Allgood Road, Marietta, GA 30062.

Atlanta, Georgia Bureau of Investigation, (GBI) Crime Lab Results Such a very unfortunate finding, after a vehicle that matched the description of the 2003 GMC Envoy that Elrey and June had traveled from their home to McRae Georgia to buy a car advertised on craigslist, was found in a water channel, and two bodies were discovered at a separate location, the Telfair County Sheriff's Office discovered
Around 12:30 the Telfair County Sheriff’s Office posted the results of the GBI autopsy examination. The findings concluded that the two bodies found, were those of 69 years old Elrey "Bud" Runion and 66 years old June Runion. The worst of the findings is that GIB had found that both victims Elrey and June Runion were killed, both shot in the head.

Remains found in sucken car in canal might belong to teens missing for 36 years

Dana was reported as a missing person unlike Harry
A car found in a Florida canal may hold the remains of two teens that have been missing since 1978.  The police have identified the car as a 1969 Dodge, and it was owned by a 19-year-old that has not been seen for over 35 years.

The car was located by city workers doing some maintenance work.  A piece of the car got caught on the workers equipment. 

Dana Null, 15 and Harry "Wade" Atchison, 19, went missing on Oct. 7, 1978.  They had gone to a Journey concert and returned to Wade's parent's home afterwords. Wade was having a small party at the home while his parent's were in New York at the time.  During the party, Wade got in an argument with his brother and jumped into his car.  Dana jumped in the car with him.

Police refused to do missing person report for Harry as he was an adult.
Atchison's sister, Donna Amaya, told ABC News that bones were recovered and they were from the lower half of a person's body.

"When I first got the call, I was kind of stunned, I guess you could say," Amaya told ABC News.  "Afterwards, in letting the extended family know about it, it finally sunk in."

Dana's parents filed a missing person report, but the Atchison never could because the police said that Atchison was an adult and could leave if he wanted. 

This case is similar to the case of Terrance Beghin, 26, who went missing in 1986.  His 1982 Corvette was found in the Punta Gorda canal 30 years later in October 2013, with his remains.  

In 2014, the remains of Carol L. Wood who had been missing for 18 years was found in a car pulled out of the Oswego River in New York. 

In April 2013, the remains of two teens who went missing from South Dakota in 1971 were found inside a Studebaker in the Brule Creek in South Dakota.  The wheel became visible because the level of the water was low. 

The most shared story in 2013 on this website, was the story of two cars located in a North Dakota creek.    As the police pulled the 1969 Camaro from out of the water they found a 1952 Chevy.  The Camaro held the remains of three teens,  Jimmy Allen Williams, Leah Gail Johnson and Thomas Michael Rios who disappeared in 1970 leaving three family's wondering most of their life whatever happened to them.    The other car held the remains of Nora Duncan and John "Alvie" Porter and Cleburn Hammock, who went missing in 1969.

In May 2014, Tim Miller, the founder of Texas Equusearch went to the Houston Police Department to tell them they had discovered more that 125 cars submerged in a Houston waterways, while they were searching for a missing woman.  Miller believes that may be missing people in some of those cars.  Miller is still trying to bring attention to the situation so these cars can be retrieved, but so far the police stated they do not have the money to do it, according to Miller.
