CIRCUMSTANCES OF DISAPPEARANCE

Ora Aylene J. Lawrence-Barrick was a widow who resided by herself in a small cabin off an isolated gravel road in Mammoth, Kentucky for 15 years prior to her disappearance. Aylene was last seen walking her dog on Laurel Ridge Rd on April th 12th 1996. She spoke to a neighbors son who was staying in his parents cabin at 2pm . She was never heard from or seen again. One of her neighbors reported her missing 3 days later. (She only had 2) LE went to Alyne's residence and discovered all the lights were off and the doors locked. There was no sign of forced entry. LE forced their way in and discovered blood on the floor and a sofa was pushed out of place. In the bedroom the bed sheet was fitted and there were bloodstained clothes on top of her bed. A glass that normally set beside her bed on a nightstand was on the floor. Her Purse along with her bed sheet were missing. Her dentures were soaking in their container inside the bathroom along with a burned out cigarette bud. A new plastic trash bag was placed over her trashcan before whatever happened occurred. It would appear as though her nightly routine was interrupted. A bag of trash sat atop of the kitchen counter ready to be taken out the next morning. Her house keys were located in her truck. And her truck keys were located inside her house. Barrick kept $400 in cash inside her freezer and it was there when the house was searched. A fake rock that she normally kept an extra house key in that sat outside her house was missing. But its uncertain if she always kept it there.  Her Pomeranian Dog Fifi was locked inside its crate. She was reportedly dating a younger man at the time but none of her family knew him by name. Authorities believe that her body may have been wrapped in the missing bed sheet and buried in a shallow grave close to her home. Cadaver dogs were used in the beginning of the investigation without success. Police believe there may be people with information who aren't coming forward. Alyne was known to have a quick temper and once threatened to hit a neighbor with a cane. Her family stated despite this she didn't have any enemies tho. Barrick had employed a handy man at the time she disappeared. Little is known about him. LE did interview a man who was guilty of attacking an older woman in another state. But he wasn't charged. Foul Play is suspected and the case is being treated as a homicide.

"RURAL AREA IS KIND OF AN UNDERSTATEMENT HE SAID ITS JUST HILLS AND HOLLOW.....OLD HOMES WITH WELLS AND SINKHOLES"




MY THOUGHTS:

I SUSPECT IT WAS SOMEONE IN THE IMMEDIATE VICINITY WHO WALKED OVER TO HER HOUSE THAT NIGHT AND INTERRUPTED HER ROUTINE. OR SOMEONE SHE KNEW INTIMATELY WAS THERE THAT NIGHT. I LEAN TOWARDS A LOCAL, LIKELY A NEIGHBOR WHO KNEW HER WELL ENOUGH AND WALKED OVER TO HER HOUSE AND GAINED ENTRY. EITHER BY AN UNLOCKED DOOR OR THE KEY SHE KEPT OUTSIDE INSIDE THE FAKE ROCK.  I'D LIKE TO KNOW THE NAME OF THE BOY WHO WAS STAYING THE NIGHT IN HIS PARENTS CABIN WHO SHE TALKED TO EARLIER THAT DAY. AS WELL AS THE HANDYMAN. I'D LIKE TO KNOW IF LE EVER FOUND OUT WHO HER YOUNGER BOYFRIEND WAS AS WELL. I CONCUR WITH LE THAT SHE IS LIKELY BURIED SOMEWHERE CLOSE. I DID CONTACT LE AHEAD OF TIME ON THIS. THE OFFICER ORIGINALLY IN CHARGE OF THIS CASE FORWARDED THE INFO TO THE OFFICER NOW IN CHARGE. I NEVER HEARD BACK. I ALSO REACHED OUT TO ALYNE'S FAMILY AHEAD OF TIME. NEVER HEARD BACK EITHER.

The Vanishing of Megan Renee Foglesong

   I DEDICATED SUNDOWN BY GORDON LIGHTFOOT TO THIS ENTRY. THE SONG IS ONE OF MY ALLTIME FAVORITE SONGS. LIGHTFOOT IS AN AMAZING SONGWRITER. WHEN ASKED WHAT THE SONG WAS ABOUT GORDON LIGHTFOOT IS QUOTED AS SAYING....

 "All it is, is a thought about a situation where someone is wondering what his loved one is doing at the moment. He doesn't quite know where she is. He's not ready to give up on her, either, and that's about all I got to say about that."

SO WHEN ITS PUT IN THAT CONTEXT. IT KINDA FITS.....
ALSO I HAD TO START MODERATING THIS BLOG COMMENTS BECAUSE A GROUP OF LOW LIFE INBREDS STARTED ATTACKING MEGAN'S CHARACTER. NOW I KNOW NONE OF YOU ARE MAN ENOUGH TO SAY ANYTHING LIKE THAT IN PERSON. YOU FEEL TOUGH ON YOUR KEYBOARDS. THAT'S FINE. OH AND MSDOXMA, NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES YOU CONTINUE TO TRY AND COMMENT. I'M NOT PUBLISHING IT BITCH. YOU'D THINK AFTER LIKE THE 8TH TIME YOU'D STOP TRYING. YOU'D ALSO THINK YOU'D HAVE BETTER THINGS …

UPDATE: Dorothy Jane Scott

Part One

I've recently been in contact with Shawn Scott, Dorothy's son. He added some interesting things to my investigation of his mother's cold case. First off I was able to obtain a few pictures of Dorothy that he sent me. I wanted to see more than just the grainy newspaper pic we all have seen a thousand times. 








Also, Swinger's Psych Shop was a store that was previously owned by Dorothy's Father Jacob Scott. John Kycola purchased that store having already owned Custom John's Shop in Anaheim.




 Apparently there was a suspect that Shawn became aware of through several of Dorothy's friends who lived in Missouri. The suspects name was MIKE BUTLER. Apparently, Butler was an unstable individual who lived in the Santiago Mountains and was involved in cult activity. Which makes me think the dead dog that was discovered with her remains makes all the more sense now. Apparently he was obsessed with Dorothy. (Sound like our caller anyone?) His sister worked with Dorot…

UNSOLVED MYSTERIES SEGMENT



October 12, 2016

I would first like to state that I have tried contacting Suzanne (Her sister) twice on two separate occasions and I have not heard back from her. I respect that she did not wish to speak with me. From what I have read there has been a lot of  trolling with internet assholes regarding the case. As well as with the Sitcoms Online board (Which at times has some good info on it but is maligned by a lot of trolls. (Wiseguy182) I would just like to say that I do not mean any ill will towards the family in writing this blog entry. I do not intentionally wish to disparage any ones character regarding this blog entry either. My heart goes out to the family of Tammy Lynn Leppert. This case has long since been of interest to me. Part One of this entry will deal with the disappearance. Part Two will deal with my opinion and analysis of the case. 
UPDATE:I HAVE HEARD BACK FROM SUZANNE. SHE IS BATTLING SOME HEALTH ISSUES. WHICH IS WHY IT TOOK SOME TIME FOR H…
