New discoveries have been made in the search for missing 23-year-old Trudie Hall; however, there are many mysteries surrounding the expectant mother’s sudden disappearance.

The Barnstable Police are focusing their attention on Quiozel Wilson of Centreville, Mass., just outside of Hyannis, who is believed to be the father of Hall’s unborn child, reports CBS affiliate WBZ.

Thursday afternoon detectives paid a visit to Wilson’s home looking for any clues that would lead them to the Nantucket woman who was reported missing July 28. Police describe Hall, a 23-year-old native of Jamaica, as black, 5 feet, 4 inches tall, weighing 160 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.

According to WBZ, detectives seized bags of evidence, a car and a motorcycle, but after questioning Wilson still have no solid answers regarding Hall’s whereabouts.

Another mystery in the search for Hall is a website entitled “Find Trudie Hall.”

Although the Internet site claims to be “dedicated to helping find Trudie,” Hall’s mother Vivienne Walker has no idea who started it and said she feels “uncomfortable” not knowing who exactly set up the website, according to The Boston Herald.

“No one asked me if they could do this. No one told me they would be using my daughter’s name,” Walker told the Boston newspaper in a phone interview. “I don’t know quite what to say. This is the first time I am hearing of [trudiehall.com] and it is a little bit upsetting.”

TrudieHall.com contains the latest media updates, a timeline detailing her final days, and the number of the Barnstable Police Department.

The Internet site which was set up using WorldPress.org also includes a blog section where you can comment on news articles posted by the unknown operator.

Hall left the island of Nantucket the morning of July 27 bound for Barnstable, according to Walker, but after more than a day of being unable to reach her daughter via text or telephone, she grew concerned.

Walker contacted police who discovered Hall’s rental car which contained traces of blood. So far, police have not found the missing 23-year-old.

Posted in Child Abuse on August 5, 2010 by projectnewera


Editor’s Note: This is ridiculous!

A father who tried to teach his 2-year-old son to box is facing second-degree murder charges now that the boy is brain dead. Police say Miami-area man Lee Willy DeJesus put on boxing gloves and hit his son Willy 15 times over a 15-minute period, at one point slugging him so hard he fell off the bed and struck his head on the floor, CNN reports.

Willy was declared brain dead after he was taken to a local hospital, and police plan to upgrade the charges against DeJesus to first-degree murder if the boy is taken off life support, NBC reports. Police say that after the boy hit his head, Dejesus waited an hour to call 911 and initially told investigators that the bruises had been inflicted by a babysitter.
