Missing Leanne Bearden's Husband's Statement Analyzed


From:  http://www.ksat.com/news/authorities-call-off-search-for-missing-woman/-/478452/24130400/-/eik7lb/-/index.html

Family members said the 33-year-old went missing after she left a relative’s house to go for a walk.
The report says that police do not suspect foul play.  They called off the search for her.  

“Her husband, Josh, has been cooperative with all investigations and is not a person of interest,” Garden Ridge Police Chief Donna O’Conner said in a statement. “Our heart goes out to the Hecht and Bearden families as they search for their loved one.”

The following is her husband, Josh Bearden's statements.  The video is broken up, which makes it difficult to analyze since we do not know what questions were posed to him.  

"Uh she said that she was going to go for a walk and then I said how long are you going to be gone
and then she said about an hour then I said ok Babe take your time.  Thats the last that thing I said to her."

We note the inclusion of the term of endearment, "Babe."  We find this in statements where one may feel the need to portray oneself as loving; not a good sign.  Here, however, he appears to be quoting himself.  Nonetheless, we take note of it just the same.  A term of endearment within a statement is often viewed as a negative and problematic because it shows the subject's need to portray himself in the positive, the necessity of such being a red flag.  

Note that it is the last thing he "said" to her.  Was it the last he saw of her?  Would it be more expected to hear, "That's the last I saw her"?

He only reports that this was the last thing he said to her, but not the last that he saw her.  


 "I have no idea what happened "

It is very difficult to believe anyone who says that they have no idea, since we all have plenty of ideas about everything in life.  In fact, Josh Bearden goes on to give an idea claiming that there are lots of places not covered.  

Mark McClish uses the exploration of the moon to highlight this saying that he is not a rocket scientist and doesn't know how to get to the moon but has an idea that a rocket will be needed.  It's a humorous way to point out that it is difficult to believe someone who says this.  Sometimes it is just a lazy mind that needs prompts, but in a missing person's case, we do not expect to encounter a lazy mind from the husband, but one of a very highly in tune mind, seeking answers. 

In Analytical Interviewing, we remind the interviewer not to accept "I have no idea" as a "stop sign" for the flow of information.  Prompt the subject.  

We have no clues  but theres still a lot of area 
that needs to be covered and that I feel Leanne could have walked.

Note the video breaks. 

 I would like to know what caused him to change his pronoun to "we" at this point.  
Note next that he does have an idea:  that there are places she could have walked to.  This makes his statement of having "no idea" not truthful.  

 The second that I lose my hope Leanne is gone .

Why is Leanne's life tied to his hope?  Since others are searching and the family is fund raising to hire a private investigator, how is it that "Leanne is gone" at that "second"?

and my biggest fear is that I’ll lose my hope.

The Expected versus the Unexpected.

We put ourselves in the shoes of the subject and presume innocence. We ask,
"What would I say?  What would you say?"

In this place, my biggest fear would be that my wife was dead, injured by injury or by foul play.  


It would be my biggest fear:  something terrible happened to her. 

Would your biggest fear be that your wife has been killed, or died in an accident, or that you would lose hope?


I will never, ever going to stop looking for you. Ever.

Similar to a statement made by OJ Simpson about looking for his wife's killer, saying he would never stop searching for the "real" killer.  

Note that his search will never end, showing no hope for success.  He does not tell her that he will search for her until she is found, but that he will "never, ever" and "ever" stop looking. 

What has caused him to have no hope for success?  She has been missing for 8 days at the time of this statement.  

Has the passage of time caused this?
Have police told him something privately that has led him to believe she will never be found?
Or...

is this similar to Josh Powell in searching for Susan?

Stay tuned as we need more statement.  

There is one in which is said that she "left on her own free will."

We're very concerned. She left of her own free will to go for a walk, and that's all we know," her brother, Michael Hech

Please note that this is the kind of thing one might say if one suspected  a domestic dispute took place.  Does the brother suspect that there was an argument of sorts, that he feels the need to add "free will" to his statement? 

It is an unexpected statement.

so curious.

peter, what are your thoughts on his quote where he repeats several times that she "left of her own free will"...?

Peter Hyatt said...

I have it attributed to her brother. It is something one would say if there was a domestic dispute, or one suspected a domestic dispute or argument existed.

It is now part of the article.

Thank you, and thank you to the transcriber.

He was on a morning show, where the news anchor said the husband had been cleared. He praised the husband for offering up everything he could do to clear himself first, before the police started searching for her.

I admit, a lightbulb went off when he said he would never, ever stop looking for her. Ever.

i thought he got the "left of her own free will" from the deduction of LE on the case from the beginning. no sign of break in or fight or theft...... LE concluded she left of her own free will.

Anonymous said...

I didn't suspect the guy from seeing him speak. but then I got thrown when I read the police "ruled out foul play" excatly how can they rule it out when they don't know what happened to her?? how do they know she wasn't kidnapped by a stranger?? -- I took it to mean they are saying they don't suspect the husband but they are kinda overstating it by saying they ruled out foul play entirely. that made me think the cops DO suspect him.

but I don't know. this one threw me -- everybody's saying they suspect him but I totally missed it watching him -- my lying radar has gone all glitchy!!!! i still suspect terry elvis and this guy looks innocent to me. hahaha. hmm. i don't know what to think anymore.

I get the feeling he's mirroring the interviewer a lot -- that the interviewer likely asked -- can you describe your last conversation -- etc. i don't know.

Here is another video of Josh Bearden from CNN. He comes on at about :24 seconds. He seems to have an idea she could have gotten 10 miles away somehow and "slipped." It's been reported by her sister-in-law that Leanne was having "anxiety" re-adjusting after the world tour trip. However, as we know, she was the one who had a job interview lined up on the day she "disappeared."

just watched clip posted in comment just above this.

first thing i see is him lean back casually ash say -- he got worried in….3 hours.

now -I'm on board. now i suspect him. dunno why thats what it too k but now i suspect him. "3"/ if somebody said they'd be back in an hour i'd wonder where they are in an hour.

also the information that she was aboutto go in to a job interview. maybe husband thought with that job she's have freedomand stability, that he didn't want her to have.

still -- are there not witnesses to him beig in the house while she was out? or are those witnesses not existent -- thought a whole exteded family was hanging at the house at the time.

i think they were like "free spirits" so if she didn't come back in one hour, meh w/e.

she got a job because they needed money, why would he kill her for that?

Anonymous said...

after looking at their blog of their world travels, it is understandable that he would not first think that some predator attacked her. they survive peacefully in many dangerous parts of the world. why would he even imagine someone could be so cruel.

marietje said...

@Anonymous said " she got a job because they needed money, why would he kill her for that?"

Have you considered this: Maybe it was he who wasn't adjusting the reality of coming down from that whirlwind world tour. Maybe he wanted to abdicate all responsibility. They were both supposedly looking for work and returning to take back their home in Denver which they had rented. Maybe he would rather stay at Mommie and Daddie's and regress back to his teenage days. Watching tv and eating pizza on the couch. With Leanne gone he could stay at his parents, have the rental income on the house and benefit from a life insurance policy. Possibly never having to go to work ever again. Just a thought.

He says, "It's been nine nights, and it feels like a thousand years. It's almost like YOU just FELL OFF A CLIFF, BECAUSE MY best friend is GONE."

Also says, "The next PHASE OF LIFE was to start a family."

"If somebody has you, then just....hang in there. We'll find you. WE have a lot of people looking for you. We're never ever going to stop looking for you. EVER EVER."

I wonder if she will be found at the bottom of a cliff. I hope not.

Oh my gosh I'm hoping this woman is found but I fear the husband has something to do with her disappearance. I know it's early on but reading your analysis Peter I can't help but write my first thought.

What is odd to me, how the family highlighted she had both her wedding ring and her engagement ring with her.

Her sister-in-law's statements indicate some problem, arguments before Leanne Bearden disappeared.

“What we're all thinking is that she just went on a walk to CLEAR HER HEAD, to think about things, but it does seem out of character for her to run off because she just doesn't want to disappoint anybody,” “She's just a family pleaser. She wouldn't want to cause anybody trouble.” “It was kind of a hard transition for her, so she's having some anxiety about it, but nothing that seemed like she was just going to run off,”

http://www.mysanantonio.com/news/local/article/Family-Missing-woman-did-not-walk-away-5159834.php

Josh Bearden told CNN affiliate KENS-TV, "She left on her own free will. THAT is what she did. That is ABSOLUTELY true, but what happened after she left the house on her own free will I don't know."

http://edition.cnn.com/2014/01/23/us/texas-missing-woman/index.html

Her own free will is repeated, and is called absolutely true. Seems sensitive.
Well, IMO there was a fight between them before she disappeared. She had some reason to wanting to clear her head. That might have nothing to do with her disappearance, because being upset she could have made a bad decision, like getting in a car with a stranger, or with someone she knew.

Bearden said Garden Ridge police did say Leanne decided to leave the house on her own.

The way the above sentence is slotted in in this report it comes across that the police said she left the house of her own accord, however, it was her husband who told them, as stated below.

"She left on her own free will that is what she did that is absolutely true, but what happened after she (Laughs) left the house on her own free will I don't know," Bearden told me.

I don't know if the word "Left" has as much
sensitivity here given that he is the one saying she "Left on her own free will". And not that he said he "left".

"She left on her own free will" is repeated making it sensitive.

He then goes on to say.

"that is absolutely true"

Does he need to say this? For me this is needless unless he was asked "if it was true".

"She left on her own free will that is what she did that is absolutely true, but what happened after she left the house on her own free will I don't know,"

The shortest sentence is the best sentence, extra words give us extra information. We see her(given that he was not asked if it was true) he adds "absolutely true"

These words are not needed, However, he feels the need to add add it to his statement, why?.

"Absolutely true"

He then qualifies it by using the word "Absolutely" thus weakening it.

"but what happened after she left the house on her own free will I don't know,"

"I don't know"

We note anything said in the negative as sensitive.

The husband states that he told her to "take her time" on the walk. Sounds like a cover for why he didn't start looking sooner. Plus she had a phone interview in 1 hour.

Peter,

Didn't you write something about the word "covered" or "covers" like blankets when it is in a statement???

He uses the word "covered".....

Anonymous said...

I know a lot of you are focusing on the fact that Josh repeats the fact that Leanne left of her own free will. This is selective media. The police originally asked this question (as a natural starting point) and it was quoted. Then it became a "fact" that Leanne wasn't missing, per se, but that she left of her own free will.
When asked, Josh is clarifying that, although true, it is not the whole story or end of the story. I think he is also getting a little perturbed at the nature of the questioning (especially the media's repeated inability to properly report on that issue). So it seems a bit emphatic.
I know there is natural curiosity to analyze these things, but I would just hope that people realize that sometimes they don't have the real or full story. And this family needs support right now.

Anonymous said...

I know them both and I don't care what he has or hasn't said. If he was a media charmer through this, everyone would be suspicious of that behavior as well. Leanne is his everything and she may never be found, dead or alive. To everyone out there that suspects him, just try to imagine yourself in his shoes. Would your head truly be sharp and clear and focused, or is it possible that you could be a wreck? Could you see yourself saying that you would never stop searching for your loved one and that you fear losing hope? It is fair to wonder about his innocence in this situation when you know nothing about them, but I just don't see it.

Anonymous said...

When we know nothing about them it is easier for us to analyze his statements without bias or emotion. I would like to see a statement from him that isn't edited and where I can hear the interviewers questions. Statement analysis is putting yourself in his/her shoes and figuring out what is expected and unexpected. I would not think about my sleep or losing hope of I lost a loved one. I would worry they were hurt and be obsessed with bringing them home.

This video I find interesting as it has Josh and Leanne playing in bumper cars. Josh says he is going to murder and kill Leanne. Now of course it's in a context of entertainment, but I can't fathom using those words of choice when I'm having fun. Furthermore, he claims that he is the Cat and we all know who the mouse is. I found the video highly disturbing.

This email is from the UT Houston Police Department. If the reports are accurate, which seems likely as she was reported as seen three times in Houston yesterday, then this is good news!

MISSING PERSON

UT Police is requesting your help and be on the look out for Ms. Leanne
Bearden. Ms. Bearden has been the subject of a nation wide missing person
search since 1/17/2014. Ms. Bearden was reported missing from Garden
Ridge, TX just outside San Antonio. A Texas Medical Center employee
reported seeing Ms. Bearden on TMC property at approximately 5:30pm
yesterday (01-27-2014). It was also reported to the missing persons’ hotline
on two other occassions yesterday that Ms. Bearden was sighted on
Richmond Ave, and along Westheimer. There is a good possibility she is in
the area and her welfare may be at risk. She may be seeking shelter or
medical help.

If you see Ms. Bearden or have knowledge of her whereabouts please contact
UT Police immediately at 713.792.2890.

He did a short interview on Fox news today, 1-28-14. The thing that really stuck out for me, when they asked if he had anything to say to the public, was his "instruction" to anyone with a lot of acreage to please search your property to see if you find her. He specifically said, "if you have a huge... set of... land, around 2,000 acres or so... please look around..."
I immediately thought it was really odd that he would say, "around 2,000 acres or so". What an odd number. I live on 40 acres and it's certainly possible for someone to get hurt and be "lost" on smaller acreage than 2,000! Why that number? Weird.

So he says in one of the parts of interview, she could have gone 10 miles and fallen off a cliff. And why wait 3 hours to be concerned if she was supposed to be back in 1? I think they should look near cliffs withing 20 miles. he seems suspicious to me. jmo

I am skeptical of the DH because I am in a married with DV in my marriage between my DH and myself and in my situation nobody knows or would slightly suspects my DH of committing DV towards me. I know when DV is taking place accidents happen where the situation is very intense, emotions are running high and you lose control. I could see in their situation if they were having an argument and she was trying to leave the house, then while he was trying to stop her accidently kills her, this is a possibility. Or, he finds out she is having affair with someone locally, or in Denver or from their two year vacation and he loses control and kills her. My point is they have been off the radar for two years traveling around the world, if she was in a DV situation I doubt they would have blogged about it. Would Leanne confide in anyone if her DH was abusive towards her, I know I never have and never will about my DH. Maybe she is the same way I am and other women who suffer in silence. This is all speculation on my part, I have no connection to this case of family. I pray she is found safe.

I agree with the above statement and no one fully knows what goes on behind closed doors. I'm shocked that friends of JB seem so adamant that he is not suspect at all, given there is already a formed bias. We've already learned this from prior cases and Scott Peterson who still has friends and family claiming his innocence. From the video footage and his eerie words of murder and killing, it leaves me more convinced JB is much more sinister than one may be aware of.

I will never, ever going to stop looking for you. Ever.

Why is he addressing Leanne in his final statement?

Usually this is the time where families make their plea to the public to turn over or call in tips/information or plea to anyone who has taken her against her will to please let her go.

His statement says to me he already knows where she is.

If he believes she is lost outside on her "walk" why would he be talking to her as if she is sitting in front of a TV inside a house watching his statement on tv? How would she ever hear it?

Paul M said...

Wow guys. Talk about missing the obvious. She left her in laws house, where her husband was when she left. This was not an irregular activity for her to do.

Her husband was in the house with the in laws.

Keep analyzing that statement...

Paul M said...

One other thing...I don't think that any of you stop to think about how your website has the potential to be hurtful to others. All you do in this website is take people's statements and assume guilt. You apply guilt to whatever they say, and twist it to fit your idea of guilt. Pretty sad...for you.

Anonymous said...

Paul please share the info regarding the in laws were home at the time Leanne left, I must have completely missed that. I can't speak for others, but I am not attempting to twist and fix JB's words. As previously mentioned, Scott Peterson's family and friends still maintain his innocence. No one knows what happened to LHB, and regardless if you like it or not, there will always be websites with people exploring all avenues and options. I highly doubt anyone here is trying to further hurt this family and what they have endured. I haven't seen anything offensive.

I'm hoping that there are a few of you on this board that actually care about finding my wife. I stay up all night checking credit cards, researching maps, checking for clues, and doing whatever I can to prepare for the next day. While researching I stumbled across this blog. I do believe that you are somebody who is seeking attention and whose interest is not in our search. I know I'm jumping into the shark tank but I'm willing to do that to find Leanne. I have to say this blog is ultimately damaging to us finding her. I've done everything I've been asked and will continue to do so we can move on to the ultimate goal. FINDING LEANNE.

What loving husband is gonna let their wife go out without a cell phone for a jog/walk.? I find it odd she only took money and credit cards and no cell phone. And him not worried that she's out alone especially with the type of crime that's been going onwith females out jogging or walking. You figure her family would of said hey be careful going out alone. Just seems odd. I hope and pray they find her safe and sound.

Her husband and her family may no doubt love and miss her dearly but maybe just maybe she left on her own for some reason no one knows...its just a shame so many people are being affected by this. Pray she's safe and find her soon.

Peter Hyatt said...

People speculating on if someone caused the disappearance does not hinder search efforts. In fact, it gets more people talking and the more people talking, the more Leanne's name remains in the public mindset.

If someone wishes to directly address anyone's suspicions, it is for the person to do, if they wish.

If they choose not to, it is their right as well, but the information is put out to the public for the public to know, discern, and have an opinion.

My thinking is that if this was me, I would not give a rat's arse about speculation, as all I would care about is finding my wife, and in keeping with this, I would want her name on everyone's mind and heart, all the time.

If the speculation bothered me, I would issue a denial and be done with it, and get back to searching.

Added to the analysis is the police statement that the husband is cooperating and is not a person of interest.

@ Josh Bearden
i think i understand you are as ONE with your wife and you would know who,what,when,where,why she would do anything.
although i don't think so, i need to ask..... did you share. was it all good for either one of you to wander off with another for periods of time. could she have met someone and is taking the time to share with them? or was your oneness only between yourselves?
you know her better than anyone, have you started off walking in the same direction as her and follow a path where you know she would have taken, maybe you will see what may have interested her and go in that direction?

Dani Kekoa said...

The troll is Robert ADOLPH Enyart DOB 1-10-59. He's king troll, been that way for a while. Trolling's been his full time job since "pastor" Bob lost his Denver Bible Church after he was found out as JonBenet Ramsey's killer just over a year ago. Have you noticed all of the news about JonBenet lately? Have you noticed the spike in crime?

Bob Enyart is a con-man fraud in addition to being a TWICE CONVICTED CHILD ABUSER with a lengthy criminal history. Google "Bob Enyart" or "Bob Enyart arrest record." Call Bob at 1-800-8-Enyart and ask him why his SSN 152-60-4382 has over 65,000 hits on a Google search....and why he can't do anything about it. HINT: Enyart is a serial killer, and the police and the FBI have known about Enyart since October 2012, but they won't go and talk to him for some reason. Listen to the proof, HOURS OF RECORDINGS with the cops:

www.PoliceRecordingsKekoas.com

Enyart has an FBI# 678532LA7. Why won't the cops and the FBI go and question the serial killer with the FBI#?

Right on..exactly...his remarks center on himself...not leanne..I will never stop searching...infers he will never find her...I have seen this same reference from other men who's wives went missing..and later turned out to have mudered their wife.

Anonymous said...

I don't understand how this blog is damaging or hindering the search for Leanne?

We are too trying to wrap our minds around what happened and where Leanne might be.

This involves having an open conversation going over all possibilities, even if some are uncomfortable to talk about or read.

We are not LE, we are not a jury, we are people who are interested in this case and we ALL want the same result which is for Leanne to be found safe and reunited with her family, period..

Anonymous said...

While I have my doubts I haven't ruled it out that there are other possibilities that someone else is involved in her disappearance. I find it odd that her husband would take time to come to this blog to challenge those that are in fact keeping her story alive and in public interest. I also don't understand how this could be a hinderance to the case. If anything, it helps. If the above is really the husband, you should be the first to know that the spouse is always first suspect. Why would you care what others are thinking if you had no involvement. Your name has been cleared (for now, as far as we know) your concern should be focused on finding your precious wife.

If the husband has something to worry about then he does.

If the husband has nothing to worry about then he doesn't.

Your "statement analyses" appear to be no more than speculations from bored voyeurs. We cannot decide what is reasonable for someone else to worry about. We cannot determine the context or know the full and true meaning of Josh's statement(s) without knowing all the facts in this case. We don't even know the questions he was asked in this interview and it is obvious that the video was cut and edited, as well.
Your analysis and the comments fail to acknowledge that fear, stress, and lack of sleep impacted Josh's attempts to articulate himself. As a behavior analyst and psychotherapist, I'm not surprised at his expressed fear of losing hope. Perhaps, in his duress, he is terrified to face the possibility that something terrible has happened to his wife and partner, much less say it out loud. As you try to put yourself in his position to determine his "expected response," again you seem unaware that you cannot replicate his circumstances. You have the luxury of speculating without being terrified, without being exhausted, able to access logic, and unfortunately deluded in your belief that you can ever know and proclaim what others should think and say under traumatic circumstances.

Why didn't Josh and Leanne go on the walk together?

What was he doing at the house while she was "walking"?

If she brought cash and credit cards, where is her ID? You can't use credit at a store without an ID.

The more I see from those that attack and defend JB, gives me more to question his innocence. I wasn't born yesterday. Scott Peterson is on death row, talk to his family, they'll tell you the same thing.

If I went on a walk I can promise you my spouse would hand me a phone. I can safely guess that JB was in a home with land lines available. To suggest he was holding on to it because of possible employment is offensive. His wife's safety was number one. We all know how this story ends.

@theabbyshow Given what you've said, it would be worthless for anyone to analyze 911 calls, or statements made by the allegedly last person to see a missing person alive, due to their "grief." So from now on we will only ever analyze people not grieving and not upset because their words mean nothing and all spouses have never harmed their loved ones before that show grief.

Also @theabbyshow if he is so concerned with the thought something happened to her but is unable to say it aloud, then why is it so easy for him to commit to looking for her forever without any mention of a positive outcome?

Josh Bearden has terribly rehearsed the claim of Leanne's disappearance. Josh has everything to do with Leanne's disappearance. I really get this feeling she never left the house. The landscaper?

I agree^ just out of curiosity, how long was Scott Peterson free for before he was arrested for the murder of Laci and their unborn baby, Conner?

I wonder why an innocent man would be so consumed with his admission of innocence, if he had nothing to do with her disappearance. For someone who is not guilty, he sure does spend a lot of time combing the internet arguing his point. If I am wrong I will be the first person to come back and apologize to Josh, family and friends. Sadly, I think that won't be the case. Yasmin*

I am really hoping she is found, one way or another, because I can only imagine the agony and questions faced by her friends and family. I agree that that some of Josh's comments seem unexpected. The thing that is uneasy to me is that he seems to be smiling in this picture taken before the helicopter search. There is also another one of him posing with two women (presumably family). I don't think I would have posing for pictures on the brain. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=218342398357420&set=pb.216516241873369.-2207520000.1391039082.&type=3&theater

I find the the pictures suspicious too but you don't know if someone told a joke prior or told him to smile for the camera, or someone was coaching him for the photo.

It could have been a photo for the helicopter company to use later on in promo's in exchange for their donated time, if he was frowning it wouldn't be any use.

Again, there is too much to speculate if we were not there when the photo was taken.

Some people smile on cue for the camera. Some do it out of nervousness. Most from habit.

There are pictures of Jews in death camps smiling for the camera, under the bleakest of conditions.

I think when you don't have answers anything is plausible. The scenario of them doing this as a PR stunt would only land them in jail with a disastrous outcome from any finances they may have left. It seems far fetched and isn't something that is likely IMO. I am leaning more towards the husband as guilty and suspect. Now what that is, I don't know. I think it would be miraculous at this point if Leanne were still alive. I hope all my suspicions are wrong and all ends well. Yasmin*

Police publicly stated that husband is not a suspect...

Maggie said...

After watching the video, I get the feeling that this is a "runaway bride" type thing. I'm wondering if her husband is perhaps not being honest but maybe he is holding back about her showing signs of getting cold feet about them settling down? (just from watching his body language etc it seems like he is sad but maybe not genuinely concerned she may have been harmed because he deep down suspects she ran off). I could be wrong.

Maggie said...

Just rewatched the video. Yeah something is off. It's almost like he is not taking the whole thing seriously or something.
I am interested about the information he gives that they were going to go on a road trip to Denver and then "settle down" and have a family.
It sounds like she ran away from the situation.

They stated he is not a suspect, doesn't change my opinion. I could be very off, and if I am, will acknowledge so. From the videos on youtube, Josh is a likable person, seems easy going, and clearly loved adventure. It makes no sense why he would have murdered her, if that is what happened, as we don't have all the facts. I doubt we have half the puzzle pieces. I feel horrible for Leanne, such a beautiful spirit.

I would rather the police concentrate on the abduction aspect than on the spouse or parents in situations like this. If it is a spouse,or parent, odds are the person is dead. If it is an abduction there is a chance if they act quickly enough they can find the person alive. Just my 2 cents. They sure need to have some kind of anonymous line and reward for information leading to her being found in the event this is an abduction case.

Anonymous said...

Does Josh ever refer to Leanne as "my wife"?

Anonymous said...

I wish Josh or the relatives would talk about who was literally with who the day she went missing. were they all together in the same room and all saw her leave for the walk and then all saw him stay home the whole time she was out? before calling police?


I mean aductions and dissapearances DO happen, we WANT to blame somebody, and usually the husband is the somebody, but that doesn't mean we are right. I am really missing motive or opportunity when I try to imagine why/how he could have of would have "done it". I do think she could have baan filled with hubris from surviving all over the world unharmed -- and so when walking by herself in texas she forgot to be on guard. I think it's very possible. but i also don't think she will be found. when they saw wome who looked like her -- I just thought - oh it's not gonna be her -- and it wasn't. I don't carethat she didn't take her cell - some people like to walk free handed. and i don't care that she walked by herself, it's perfectly normal to go for a walk alone. I think that she wore hiking boots suggests that she meant to go "off road". are there wild animals up there? i think something awful happened to her, but I just don't think it was the husband. I think he talks a little funny but he's used to keeping a travel blog -- I think he's used to "performing" on camera - so he may no present his monst genuine impulses -- but that doesn't mean he has guilty knowledge.

Anonymous said...

he calls her "my best friend" which -- to be honest -- is what i've heard men call their wives/girlfriends when they want to cheat on them. when they are identifying how they are still attached to them emotionally but they also want something else. "best friend" is in antitheses to sex/lust/romance IMO, in man language.

but lots of men call thier wives that without killing them.

Anonymous said...

The parents were away on vacation and did not return until after she had left to go for the walk. But my understanding is that there were witnesses to seeing her leave the house, I believe he said in an interview something like she was seen leaving the house. I think anyone would be nervous in his situation because generally they do suspect the spouse. Look at the case of Michael Morton sometime.

Maggie said...

Maybe someone who likes to travel all the time didnt want to settle down and did the whole "went out for cigarettes and nevet came back". Just from looking at the pictures of her, it looks like she has a lot of energy and spunk--maybe she just took off.

Everyone behaves differently when under extreme stress. However, I don't for one second feel easy watching Josh give interviews, search for his "best friend" or leave comments on the net. I get a horrible sense of uneasiness with his demeanor. I am a strong believer of innocent until proven guilty, yet I'm consumed with sadness unlike any other case I've come across. I've never been wrong with my gut, EVER.

Jen Ow said...

Drones??

I was holding back my opinion on this case and I'm glad I did until I saw the husband's comments on this thread. Whether LE considers him a suspect or not, a few things stand out to me.

First, I notice the name of the email profile he used to comment is a combination of Leanne's name and his. I don't know when the email acct was created , but I find it a little concerning in context of the situation. Was Leanne permitted to have her own private email?

Leanne has been isolated from her family/friends for 2 years on an extended trip. IF Leanne didn't have a private email to contact her family, and have candid discussions about the things going on in her life/ their relationship, then there may be long brewing conflicts and issues between them that nobody else knows about. (Especially if she really doesn't have her own cell phone). These things taken together, shared email, a long period of isolation, no phone...are all signs that this may have been a controlling relationship.

Second, I ask the same question as others. How do strangers on the internet discussing Leanne's case, and the possible scenarios hurt anything? How does the analysis, and our comments even register on the husbands radar right now? Does the husband's ego take precedent over the search for Leanne? Doesn't he want people all over the world to discuss Leanne, and look for her?

In the husband's two comments he: defended himself, condemned the blog and its commenters, told of his 'research' efforts, and proclaimed his cooperation, saying he has done everything he was 'asked' to do.

The only 'help' he requested was that we spend our time 'trying to help', by 'pounding out emails' where we:

"ask for some drones to search the area. We've been trying to get those and haven't gotten any response. Thanks in advance."

This request for 'help', (by him or others) is a futile waste of time. Multi-million dollar, top tier technology, MILITARY equipment is NOT going to be deployed to search a '10 mile' area, which the husband has suggested is the location needing to be searched.

Focusing time and resources on this idea, which he claims to have done, is ludicrous.

Also, just an assumption, however; with out know ALL THE FACTS- it is natural to do so. - this picture caught me a little off guard - It was taken from a cell phone that has a "selfie stick" attached to it- Leanne has a blast case in her hands that looks like it could be another phone (can't say for sure) but in his online statements, he keeps saying that they only had ONE phone

Also, wonder if they had a missed call or a call at all from the company she was suppose to have the "phone interview" with the hour.

On last thing- it does seem a bit suspicious that it happened while the in-laws were on vacation, and they return during the 4 hours time frame that they realized she was missing- hmmm, ironic .. They just returned from a 2 year vacation, highly doubt the in-laws would plan a vacation while their son and wife just returned..

Can't help but suspect that SOMETHING SPELLS FISHY

Pray for her safe return and/or pray that THE FULL TRUTH and story soon comes out

I know Josh said the last time he had seen Leanne was when she walked out the door of the house to go on her walk/hike/run etc.

Can anyone verify other than Josh, when was the last time they talked to (not email or text) or visibly seen Leanne alive?

I find it odd the day his parents returned home was the same day she was reported missing.

Jen Ow said...

Now this makes more sense.

When he said 'drone', I assumed he was speaking of an actual military drone. I have never heard anyone call a privately owned 'unmanned aircraft', (essentially a remotely operated flying camera)...a 'drone'. To me, the word drone has a military conotation, and would be more than a camera, but rather an actual aircraft, capable of completing combat missions. I guess I must now broaden my definition, lol!

I'm glad to learn that Texas Equisearch has access to this piece of equipment. It will surely aid in searches, and cut down on the time, and man power previously needed.

Now my question is the same as the commenter above...since the offer is out there, have they taken advantage of it?

Big Russian said...

According to the FB page, there is now evidence she left on her own. I hope this is the case.

I cannot help but think: What kind of husband would I have if I could not tell him I wanted to leave, but instead had to sneak away? Oh yea, I used to have one of those. He was crazy abusive.

Big Russian said...

And when I heard the husband state that he would NEVER stop looking for her, it gave me the creeps. She is scared of him, I think. And he knows it.

Why did he tell her to take her time, if reports are correct that she had a phone interview in an hour?

The family statement says that they have read from Leanne's various accounts that she was anxious and stressed about returning to normal life, ie work and returning to the Denver area. My problem with this is how does one leave and disappear with no trail whatsoever. It makes little sense and hard to believe. Seems that there are so many options to re introducing yourself back into the daily grind. I think most of us when on holiday be it extended, mentally prepare when it's almost over. Granted most people don't travel the world for 22 months, but it would be highly unlikely to walk away with no traces or leads. I think the outcome is not good and I still have questions for Josh.

I watched video too. u have a point. iwatched their footage. walking down street in foreign city too. what struck me just listening to dialogue. leanne is more excited than josh. more into him than he is in responding to her. only time josh seems to have guenuine free flowing thoughts is when talking to camera about being cat and killing her. on its own that bumpercars seems kinda meaningless but in contrast to his less freedialogue with his wife. i picked up on possability he may have actually found her annoying and taxing.

Anonymous said...

IMHO, it would help if the husband filled in the blanks a bit more for the public in another statement. The public can't be blamed for asking questions when they don't have a complete picture, nor can they take a story at face value if they sense there are missing pieces.

I think a few missing pieces for the public might include if there was a fight between the husband and wife before her walk. The language used in some of the statements by various loved ones makes it feel like she took a walk to cool down (i.e. "she left on her own free will," etc) and that she was really stressed after her trip ended. If the loved ones want to keep a hypothetic fight private, we get it. But the result of hiding the ball on that information makes the language used in various statements confusing and can appear deceptive.

Also the point about continually looking for her without a result of her returning. That comes off as fishy IMO only because if there was a fight which has not been explained to the public, then to keep looking for someone who doesn't want to be found makes perfect sense. But to continue to look for someone who might be injured or hurt without a fight having been the precursor to the walk doesn't. If there was an argument, and she left maybe for a reason to get away from all the stress and doesn't want to be found, it'd make a lot of sense to put it out there that, yes we will always look for you because we want you to feel welcome to come home.

Bottom line, the public can kind of sense that they aren't getting the whole story sometimes in these missing persons cases and then who the hell knows what conclusions the public will draw. It's the human brain. We try to make sense of things and not all of the things that make sense are going to be supportive of loved ones. Having more information helps.

Josh, I've been reading this blog site off and on for nearly five years, going back to when a darling little abused girl in Satsuma, Fl named Haleigh Cummings disappeared on Feb 9th, 2009. Since then there have been numerous missing children and adults reported missing that have been discussed indepth on this blog site.

Some of those missing persons were subsequently found dead and their murderers prosecuted, while some have been found dead but their perpetrators not prosecuted for one legally/LE troubled reason or another; with others determined to be dead via statement analysis that is posted here and weighed by many of its' posters who believe they have the capabilities of determining who is guilty of their murders just through their statement analysis techniques and in whom they've determined is responsible for the death of many of these missing persons. Sometimes they have been right in their analysis and a few times wrong, with some cases still to be determined.

HOWEVER, I will tell you that in all of this time I have yet to witness a single one of these overview statement analysis cases being taken literally as fact or otherwise by LE, or being used by LE to help in their investigations in these cases; nor have I ever seen the posters here raising funds to help find a single one of these missing persons.

Don't count your chickens before they hatch or hold your breath waiting for someone here to help you find your wife. It ain't gonna happen. Challenges posted by those suspected of being guilty go unmet here, and will only result in further proving your guilt to those who have already predetermined you to be guilty.

In my point of view, all it really boils down to is a lot of talk and emotional binges by some based on a few suspicious words that were either spoken at the wrong time or left out of ones' statement, or a suspicious body movement in a video, or lack of a certain 'look' or a specifically worded denial not being made at the right time using the right words, or a suspicious smile that should have never happened at the wrong time. These things proves their statement analysis right; and pity the poor devil who might be innocent and is being falsely accused.

If I were you I wouldn't read here and get myself upset over their analysis, as when you defend yourself then you have only made yourself appear even more guilty by showing yourself to be upset, since to them this only validates your guilt.

It's a no-win if you defend yourself here. To them an innocent person isn't supposed to care what people think about them or if they falsely accuse them; even later when a person has been proved to be innocent, they still do not back down. An opposing viewpoint made by a differing poster who questions their reasoning creates their ire and results in being insulted. I could say more but why bother. Wasted time.

@ Leosh Bearden,

Why are you issuing challenges and tasks to Peter Hyatt and his readers? If YOUR wife is missing, why does the fundraising responsibility and hiring of a private investigator fall to Peter Hyatt?

I'd like to add that I'm sad that Josh assuming it's really him, continues to attack and name call. How is he not able to understand that it's natural for people to think he has or had involvement in Leanne's disappearance.

I keep witnessing Josh focusing on his feelings or himself, rather than where his actual focus should be. Why does he care what people think regarding his guilt, if he were honestly innocent.

I'm not suggesting he is guilty, but a lot of his actions suggest something more than that of an innocent husband. So many here have expressed concern regarding lack of information given in the case. Clearly the public will not have all the details for obvious legal reasons, but you have to acknowledge that the comments will reflect what we do have.

Also Josh asks to have us use our money to hire a PI. I thought there was one already on the case, Charlie Parker?

How many PI's does one need?

Josh, it would be most helpful if you could confirm some details of what happened, especially about the last sighting on 3009. Specifically, what time was that sighting and by who. If not an exact identity, then just some details about what makes them so reliable. Some people are speculating that it was by you or an officer, neither of which makes much sense. Also, some of the info on when you started calling people (30 minutes, 1 hour, 4 hours later) and when her job interview was would help as the info has been muddled by bad reporting.

I do not believe Leanne left on her own free will and the family's "strong possibility" statement. As a woman, I need supplies, toothbrush, clothes, etc. How do you survive for two weeks with basically nothing, credit cards and less than $100 in cash? If she had a plan to disappear, it would have had to be a well thought out and calculated plan. She would need a lot of cash stashed away to keep under the radar this long. In the end I don't but into this theory.

Why does Josh Bearden keep asking you to hire a PI, when he already has one?
I have contributed to a missing person reward fund, in the past, as a result of reading this website, so that is a possibility.

All of the scenarios thrown around about Leanne being lost, in a cave, stuck in the mountains, picked up by the wrong person while “hitch hiking” goes against all common sense, good judgment and built in women’s intuition. Especially being a female who is out alone with no companion or cell phone, you don’t just up and decide to test your limits and boundaries but going into a dark cave or rock climb a cliff and put yourself in a dangerous situation.

Also, to add most “run a way bride” that had anxiety and commitment issues left in a car and had a cell phone with them and they were eventually located by LE.

Josh,

I will gladly donate to the cause of helping to find your wife. Do you have a paypal acct, or something set up to make this possible?

Much has been said about the editing of your statements. Will you tell us in your own words, what happened the day Leanne went missing?

Anonymous said...

He said he would not ever stop looking for her but the context was that if she had been abducted and someone was holding her. It does happen, Ariel Castro kept 3 of them for years. And people freak out and leave sometimes too remember the bride that went to New Mexico a few years ago. Obviously there are witnesses to her leaving the house, witnesses to her walking around. This is Texas police don't just clear the husband without a good reason.

Please know that there are sane people out there praying for you, leanne and your families. I do hope that she is found soon so that you all can return to your lives in peace."

That's a very sympathetic, but rather naive comment. Any time you make a public statement, or post something online, you open yourself up to scrutiny: from the government, media, etc. Let me assure you, if you ever get divorced or have a custody case (or any other kind of legal problem) your words will be used again you, and so will your online presence. Facebook pages, Twitter, blogs, these can all be used in court. It is not realistic or fair to expect that a privately-run blog should ignore a statement that was given publicly.

"It's hard," Bearden's husband, Josh Bearden, told The Huffington Post. "In the beginning I was crying a lot and not sleeping. I'm still not sleeping much, but I am crying less because I'm so confused and trying to find out what happened."

"We just don't know what happened that day," he said. "We know she left own her own, but we don't know what happened to her after that."

"She was very anxious about coming back to America, but things were not bad [between us], and I never in a million years thought she would leave," he said.

"Nobody has seen her since the day she went missing," he said. "My worst fear is she got abducted. All of us are fearing the worst right now."

Josh, I sympathize with you, and cannot believe the arrogance and ignorance of some of the posts on here.
I reported to your private detective Charlie Parker that I observed a woman bearing a startling resemblance to Leanne in the Dallas area last Tuesday, Jan 28, alone under quite unusual frigid circumstances. A far reach, but in case there are other possible sightings in the Dallas area, I felt my comments might help.
Godspeed.

Anonymous said...

How often should someone bring their loved ones name up when talking about them if they are missing? I find it strange he hardly says "Leanne." His emotions are very focused on himself.

Is it important that he says "and trying to find out what happened."

"what happened" is vague, no reference to anything in particular

"trying" seems like a passive verb but it makes sense when paired with "trying to find out"

And does it show priority? That he talks about why it is "hard". His feelings come first, without any reference to Leanne, no reference to her at all actually that is weird. It's like he's talking about a very distant event/subject. Then the next item in priority is he is confused, and then trying to find out what happened.

It is highly unlikely that Leanne Bearden left on her own to get away from her current life. If you analyze her demeanor in the videos, she would never not contact a family member. And, if the tree trimmer is such a credible witness, why is his name being kept a secret? The entire story could have been made up by the husband...why? Because they were the only ones at the home. He could have lied about the power bars being taken....he could have disposed of the back pack. The things he says are not credible...not after complete silence from his wife. Think about it, a woman full of life wants to get out of the marriage, leaves with 60 Dollars and does NOT call a family member after a few days? She is dead.

What does the tree trimmer's name have to do with anything? The police are the ones who found him, the police interviewed him, the police found him credible and reported his sighting (which meshed with the dog scent trail) - why would his name matter one way or the other?

O'Conner had said over the weekend that Leanne Bearden had left “of her own free will.” To clarify, the police chief said Wednesday that she meant Leanne had voluntarily left for a walk and had not been abducted from the house. O'Conner said she was not alleging that Leanne ran away or left her husband.

Why does the tree trimmer's name matter?
Perhaps because this is a public case with clearly a lot of attention on Leanne's welfare and concern for safety. I'm constantly amazed at the level of intellect from those that post such moronic questions. We do not know if there was a tree trimmer, and just because you read it, doesn't mean it's valid. PROVIDE FACTS before you further insult.

The latest statement suggesting she voluntarily left is upsetting and offensive to those that have brain power in use. Leanne didn't up and leave life. She didn't take an hour walk, and I don't believe her husband is an innocent man. I've seen and read nothing that would suggest he is of the innocence he clings to. Like someone here mentioned, keep talking Josh, you're doing further damage to your future. The truth will come. Yasmin*

Anonymous said...

I'm curious about the interview that Leanne was to have an hour after taking "the walk." Was it a phone interview? A Skype interview? What happened when the interviewer rang? Did anyone answer? Wouldn't Josh have answered if he had been home, knowing the call was important? My husband would have.

I remain shocked that there is no reward being offered. Two thirty-somethings who spent 22 months traveling the world says "money" to me. I could be wrong. I don't know these people. But, I, an upper-middle class 30-something, don't know a single sole who can afford such a luxury. I'd cash in every stock, clear out savings, and suck my retirement dry to offer a reward if my husband was missing.

A pretty oddly worded reward has been offered. Totally $20 thou.

They found her. Where? Exactly where Josh told them to look. He asked that anyone with a large property look for anything unusual. And she was found behind someone's home in a wooded area. I don't think this is a coincidence?

And as it turns-out, it is all but certain that she took her own life. Very sad.

San Antonio News is reporting her body was found and that it was an apparent suicide. Something terribly fishy is going on. That girl did not commit suicide. I live about ten miles from Garden Ridge and there are no cliffs close by for her to hurt herself on. Her husband has lost his mind.

i honestly wouldn't be at all surprised to learn that a thorough and accurate autopsy revealed the estimated actual time of death was in fact at some point prior to the time when the victim was reportedly to have left the home "on her own accord"

The sad death of Leanne, resonates over and over in my brain. I have watched the husband's interviews numerous times, watching his mannerisms, body language etc. In one phrase he states that she's probably out there exploring, saying that she likes to do that, also saying she could have fallen off a cliff in the next breath. He says during the same interview that something like this is not like her. Conflicting! He just didn't appear to me to be distraught on camera. He was slouched back in his chair, relaxed. He smirks more than once. He says she was having difficulty coming back home and facing reality. Maybe they were having problems, took a trip to find each other, but coming home brought all the old feelings back. Maybe she wanted out. Did anyone consider that. His comment about her leaving on her own free will, was a telling comment for a supposed distraught husband to make, when his deceased wife was not even found yet. Look at his finger when he is showing Garden Ridge on the map. At one point he says she could be here or here and makes a circular motion on the map with his finger. Oddly she was found on a circular street. This can be seen by using the street address on street view.......then zoom in. Just tell me how a 100 pound 5'2" woman hangs themselves. Maybe she had assistance! The whole thing stinks to me and I cannot believe that the case is closed. If I were the police, I would take another look. There are so many people questioning this death. Why ? Because none of it makes sense. God Bless Your Soul Leanne, and I hope I am wrong. If my suspicions are correct, then I pray the truth will reveal itself.

Forgive me if I am wrong, but this whole suicide theory, to me just does not add up. Perhaps the public doesn't really know how or why Leanne and her husband traveled the world for two years....to experience or to escape their lives here in the USA. The photos provided online certainly don't show an unhappy or sad Leanne. I noticed several things regarding the husband's interview. He seems to be relaxed, sitting back in the chair. A couple of times I noticed a slight smirk. His comments about how his wife loved to explore and was probably doing that, then almost in the same sentence saying that this behavior was not like her. He said she could have fallen off a cliff, kind of insinuating she was deceased. The leaving in her own free will comment was odd for someone to make when the loved of your life is missing. Those comments lean toward possibilities of unrest in the marriage or situation. Comments about her having coping issues after their return is also odd. Every one of the photos provided show her smiling with the biggest smile. Were there marriage problems and was this trip a solution to solving them? We don't know. I noticed something during one interview....he is pointing to a map of Garden Ridge and states, she could be here or here. Then for a split second, makes a circular motion with his hand. Well I believe she was found in a area where the street goes in a circle. I googled the street where she was found and this was evident.
She was a very small person and I find it unbelievable that she could hand herself. He also talks about why she didn't have the cell phone with her. How did he know how much cash she had in her wallet, but didn't see the rope or item or items that she used to hang herself. I hope I am wrong, but this is not a suicide case to me and should not have been classified one simply because there was no evidence of foul play. I wish the police would take another look.

I re-watched the KENS 5 interview of Leanne's husband, PLEASE watch it, all the way through. Especially when he is pointing on the map. Something very wrong happened January 17th, 2014, and one person knows. There are too many assumptions from him. Think about it from this perspective....most people would not take so much time sitting in front of a camera crew talking about what could have happened. Yes, people react in different ways, but, would you, as someone's loving husband, not be running throughout that "greenbelt" as he says, area, frantically looking for your wife, instead of talking on camera. To me that spells one thing ------he knew where she was.....Please don't close this case, because it was most definitely, NOT SUICIDE! Sociopath!

Anonymous said...

I agree that this case stinks to high heaven. I didn't believe this guy from day one. If a couple went on a whirlwind tour around the world; it shouldn't matter what humdrum workaday life lie ahead back in the good old U.S. of A. As long as they would be together at the end of the day; nothing else matters. That's how true partnership & devotion plays out. Not with one spouse running off to a dark corner to check out! Many couples cannot stand each other long enough to take a cross country drive. These two should have been good. Unless she realized abroad that this guy was a control freak and a sociopath. Perhaps she mentioned divorce and he decided that he had a better idea: to snuff out her life. It's sad because she obviously loved this guy. If not; she would have recognized him for the self-centered; selfish loser that we see before us today. Seriously this guy lacks an identity without her. Watch the interviews! I hope they catch him. Justice for Leanne!!! Poor Leanne. She probably looking down from Heaven wondering : who the (bleep) did I marry?

I'm sure you didn't mean to connect this, but I laughed out loud at the proximity of Jews smiling for the camera in death camps with "smile! Say Cheese!" As if the Nazi's would tickle the humor of their hostages. I know what you meant but the irony shocked me into unexpected laughter.
I think also in the case of the Jews, smiling could be defiance or perhaps reassuring to the surviving families if later the images were to be found posthumously. But even those explanations seem weak. Maybe it was to avoid more abuse, compliance. OT, I know, but your interesting comment aroused my curiosity.
