Myra Lewis: Searches Continue

This Saturday will mark three weeks since Myra Lewis was reported missing.  Her mother, Ericka Lewis, remains behind bars in probation violation (concealed weapon), as state, local and federal officials have completed searches of the local ponds and waterways.  The search has concentrated in a perimeter around the home, within 1 hour driving distance, and circled wider over time.

Ericka Lewis is scheduled for a hearing on Monday, March 24, 2014.

Ericka Lewis showed distancing language in her short statement about her daughter, and we also learned that Richard Lewis claimed to have done his own search, for more than 4 1/2 hours before reporting the 2 year old missing.

Myra is in my thoughts, hopefully LE is making progress.

Dylan Redwine has crossed my mind several times today, I'm shocked Mark is walking free today.

Dylan is not forgotten; thank you for mentioning him.

I hope to have an update soon...

I check every day to see if there is news on Myra or Charli. Nothing new:( I was just thinking about Dylan too in the past coue of hours. Maybe something will happen in his case. His poor Mom.

Thank you Mr. Hyatt, your blog and all that I have learned so far changed my life.

Red Ryder,
I check every day too. I'm almost afraid to look these days, as more time passes, it seems there won't be good news. Poor Myra, so little and so defenseless. Where is this child?

Possible reasons Myra's parents failed to call LE from Websleuths:

I can say it because I live here. Black people In rural areas do not like or trust police or white people in general. I can say there is some of the same distrust with white people. General dislike across the board. My husband is federal LE here. Most rural or city black people do not call the police very often especially if they have warrants. I would not be surprised if someone in the family had accidentally injured the child and now nobody is talking to protect that person especially if they are the breadwinner. I am NOT ACCUSING ANYONE OF ANYTHING just speaking to the culture here. Let me say again... The police are NOT trusted. Mississippi has a terrible history that explains why. However it would also not surprise me if extended family had Myra for some unknown family dispute reason like the little girl that was kidnapped from her school over a land dispute. It would be very hard to return her now since the FBI is involved... Just thought I would give my input. I live less than 30 minutes from the family's town. ( not born or raised here but here for 6 yrs)
I am generalizing and this opinion is observation but does not apply to all people in Mississippi. Just my opinion. If you doubt me look at some of the commentary from Kenneth stokes on WLBT.

There is a vast cultural void apparently between some of the people who are doing the analysis and the people they are analyzing.

In rural Mississippi, a woman in a head scarf does not indicate they are Muslim. I need to see this scarf. Some women just like the look of tribal apparel, while my child's school handbook specifically specifies "No do-rags." But suddenly in the discussion of their language analysis the mom becomes Muslim and therefore is too oppressed to speak in public. Missing the mark badly.

Cultural differences are also in my opinion causing gross misanalysis of some of the the words that were spoken. I don't know where these people are from who are discussing it but it's my opinion most of them have never set foot in the south.

Does anyone have the link to the dad's video? Thank you in advance.http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=237580&page=18

I saw the above comment as I was reading through websleuths. It was in reference to this site "analyzing" Myra's family to be Muslim. They did not distinguish between analysis and the comments of you know who.

Thank you, Peter, for posting on Myra. I hope she is found soon.

Mark Redwine had maintained that he had nothing to do with his son's disappearance and offers his own theory on what happened.
"I've always believed that one of TWO THINGS HAPPENED. When he walked out the front door he set out for a destination and never made it. Or I've always thought a vehicle pulled up in front of my house and he knew who it was and he got into a vehicle with somebody," Mark Redwine told the station.http://www.cbsnews.com/news/dylan-redwine-update-mother-of-colo-boy-13-found-dead-points-finger-at-dad-report-says/

Sus, the people on websleuths dont have it right either. It wasnt a tribal head scarf. What you snipped from websleuths is someone saying it is a tribsl headscarf which it isnt. So what's tge problem? Someone on here had a wrong idea and the websleuth's person has a wrong idea too.

Sus said...

I didn't snip it and bring it here. I commented on it here.

Sus said...

Alright Maggie, try not to derail this topic. There are actually two topics here.

First, part of the websleuths convo is missing in the above comment. It began because some said that those people over at statement analysis say the Lewis family is Muslim because a woman wore a scarf. Then they said we don't understand Southern culture. Then they had a convo about Southern culture, part seen in the comment above. There was only one commenter on this blog who thought the Lewis family was Muslim, but the post was hijacked by your alts to discuss it endlessly. That's the first topic.

The second topic: Culture and statement analysis. I would think rather than knowing culture to understand a statement, one would look at a statement to understand the culture. When Gregory Lewis's sister called police "the man" I knew she was showing distrust. And it's pretty easy to hear from Ericka Lewis's mother's words what she thinks of laws and police. I've got a pretty clear beat on their "culture."

look at a statement to understand the culture
and...
Possible reasons Myra's parents failed to call LE…
"Black people In rural areas do not like or trust police"

"We just want her back home. We won't WORRY ABOUT PRESSING CHARGES, we just want her back home safe," said Lewis.

Jen Ow said...

Anon 8:03,

The above excerpt from Websleuths is precisely why it is frustrating for anon(s) to repeatedly post erroneous information, and baseless speculation. Doing so detracts from the seriousness and credibility of SA.

When someone who knows nothing about the principles of Statement Analysis happens upon this site, and reads the ridiculously outlandish theories, (which have zero basis in SA) that have been repeatedly posted lately, they likely leave the site rolling their eyes and exasperated. (I do, and I have read and commented here for years).

As you can see, the websleuths posters did not distunguish the legitimate analysis, from the off the mark comments. They discounted the analysis as a whole, based on a single commenter's insistance on the idea that the father's sister was Muslim due to a scarf.

This is a Statement Analysis blog. If anon (s) want to speculate, there are sites better suited for that. Websleuths, Justice Quest, etc.

Interesting that Myra's grandmother brings up the idea that Myra's mom has not been read her Miranda rights, (which only happens when the person is arrested and charged with the crime).

Also, grandma would have no way of knowing for sure what was said to her daughter in police custody.
SPECULATION BEGINS
It seems like grandma may be trying to preemptively discredit any incriminating statements made by her daughter, by saying she was interviewed for 8 hours and wasn't read her Miranda rights.

Anonymous said...

Jen Ow, I am very good at statement analysis, as are you. You have an excellent mind. But how long must I be chastised for having a wrong idea? It was a religious head covering. I mistakenly thought it might be a Muslim head covering. I willingly acknowledge my mistake, but I don't think it was wrong to wonder what kind of head covering the woman at the vigil was wearing.
I don't understand why I would be concerned about the thoughts of websleuthers. The few times I've looked in over there, I think it's cool, but it really doesn't have the richness or depth of looking at cases through statement analysis. It mainly seems like a similar dynamic in some ways where people get into a groove of thinking one way about a case with people varying slightly here and there. I wasn't hugely impressed.
Anyway, back to the topic, they said it is not necessarily a Muslim covering it could be a tribal head covering (which was also wrong) and then expressed curiosity in seeing the video. I haven't speculated on a single thing today or expressed a single wild idea yet I am still being chastised. So, I really don't know what to say. Sorry, I guess.

Jen Ow said...

Anon 9:22

You have STILL missed the point.

Drawing a conclusion by examining a subjects WORDS, is SA. Posting 20x about the family being Muslim, based on a member of the extended family wearing a scarf, is not.

I have said all I have to say on the matter. If the above websleuths example of the impact your runaway imagination has on the credibility of the blog isn't embarrassing to you... it should be.

JerseyJane said...


Jeezzz, you put Anons in a wall- to- wall mirrored room and Anons still can't see themselves! lol

I would tell them the writings on the wall but I think their scarves may be the Anon-styled Muslim scarf without slits for their eyes! Mmmmmm..

Fair enough, I posted my response before I saw your message. I am not trying to brow beat you for a single mistake, nor do I care what the websleuthers think. However it is illustrative of the issue that wild speculation causes.

Anonymous said...

No, Jen, I asked if maybe they were Muslim, and did state how if they were Muslim that might impact the wife speaking out,etc. That shouldn't impact the credibility of anything. It wasn't a flight of fancy, it was just asking about the head covering and which religion it was linked to. It even led people on here to say that they had found the vigil was at an AMS church where women do cover their heads. It is not my problem if a single websleuther did not like the conversation because that is exactly what they did on websleuthers is begin speculating on what her headscarf might be ie. tribal. Should they be embarrassed about that? There is nothing for anyone to be embarrassed about and there is no link between someone wondering if the headscarf could be Muslim and SA having less credibility. The two are not connected: wondering what type of headscarf (is it Muslim, could the family be Muslim?) is not connected with the effectiveness of SA. It is illogical to connect the two things, so I just can't be embarrassed that someone did that. That is their own flawed logic.

It was not a religious head covering. It was a scarf. A scarf, perhaps with an African pattern, perhaps not. Just a scarf. That is why readers become frustrated with your posts.

"...they said it was not necessarily a Muslim covering..."

They actually said "They are not Muslim."
And
"In rural Mississippi, a woman in a head scarf does not indicate they are Muslim."
No equivocation.

Twisting language and changing words, deliberate and repetitive misinterpretation, it just wears us down. And you want to know why someone would express concern about the thoughts of others who read the blog? Perhaps because we feel some ownership of our words, as indicated by our choosing a name and posting consistently with that identity. Our words belong to us in that unique way on a blog. We feel ownership, because we aren't posting as Anonymous or ten different names a day. With ownership comes pride.

I think Myra's mom accidently drove back into Myra causing a fatal injury in the driveway. LE released this very specific senario AND a 20,000 $ reward. Myra's mom is early post natal harmonally. She needs a defense for failing to report an accident. Understanding race in the south offers an explaination.

Sus said...

^^^^ Can also be used as a defense in urban areas...and small towns in Maine. Well, and any race. Oh heck, can be used by anyone who doesn't want to talk.

This is standard protocol in the United States. When a child goes missing under adult care, the other children are considered in possible jeopardy due to neglect. This is why the public questioned DHHS lack of involvement in the case of Baby Ayla; specifically, given the evidence, how was it that the other two mothers in the home when Ayla went missing were able to retain custody of their children? Had those children been removed due to the lying of the two mothers, we may have had Ayla's plight given up.

White privilege.

Sus said...

I'm not sure I'm understanding your point, anon.

Yes, I would have liked to see the other children removed in Ayla's case. I doubt they had a legit reason to remove the sister's daughter as no one was charged with a crime. Courtney's son lives in a home where drugs were dealt so I'll never understand why he wasn't removed from her care. I will point out Courtney is black so I don't think your "white privilege" theory holds up.

I also do not see that it is common practice to remove other children from a home when one child goes missing without evidence of a crime? Can you give me an example?

As to Myra's mother..."accidently" running over your child and having "post natal hormonal" are exclusive of each other. Then we need to add the third point of reporting Myra missing and LE spending weeks looking for her.

I'm not seeing how reporting a child missing ties into an accident nor a hormonal imbalance. Nor to southern culture. Nor racism.

I am seeing how it ties into previous charges and convictions! That's quite a twist on "mistrust of police."

Anonymous said...

Joann, I can't address this any further. It was a religious head covering. You yourself by your own admission have not even looked at the video, because you stated that maybe it had a tribal pattern, maybe it didnt. It did not, and it was a religious head covering.
If the websleuthers viewed the video BEFORE writing, there would not be an issue. Their speculation was MORE wrong than my mistake. I had the wrong religion.
I will not speculate anymore, although it does take imagination to solve crimes, and I do not feel all or even most of my speculation was wild or foolish, but you are certainly allowed to your opinion.

Anonymous said...

Jerseyjane, I didnt suggest either of those 2 scenarios. That was another individual (s). I did suggest certain scenarios, and I still do believe the 2 fake texters may have been involved, because of their behavior which is very suspicious and contains several disturbing elements of post-homicide behavior of certain perpetrators. I saw yesterday some people wrote that Sidney was caught on camera making the payphone call, but it is unclear who he was with at the time, so, I do not know what this means was he with an unidentified individudal or simply alone? But regardless I just feel there is a missing piece to the case but I dont plan on speculaing further. We'll just to see how the whole investigation turns out.

JoAnn said...

Anon at 10:33
Yes, I should have been more clear. I did see the video, several times. I did not go back & watch the video again. That is because I recall the woman in question wearing the head scarf, but couldn't remember if there was a pattern of some kind. The pattern is of no importance whatsoever, so I didn't go back to watch the video to see if a pattern was present. (Hence the statement, "maybe it did! maybe it didn't).
You are so insistent that this is a religious head covering, even though there is no evidence of that. I wonder why that is so important to you?
In fact, on the post in question from websleuths, the person posted that they live close to the Lewis family, and a co-worker attends the same Christian church as the Lewis family. The poster goes on to say that it is not uncommon for women in their area to wear head scarves to cover rollers or if their hair hasn't been "done."
I understand that you can't address this any more. It's been addressed & refuted until it's worn out.

( If Myra's mom failed to call LE out of fear of being incarcerated and having her kids taken away, then she was correct, her fears came true )

I'm not seeing how reporting a child missing ties into an accident nor a hormonal imbalance. Nor to southern culture. Nor racism. Accident occured, emotions and fear took over due to hormonal imbalance and societies racially imbalanced justice.

Recall how you and other well known SAers approved of George Zimmermanns use of the word SUSPECT to describe Trayvon Martin when GZ's bloody injuries should have removed all suspicion. Even though GZ's statement was deceptive, through racist eyes his use of the word SUSPECT remained unsuspicios. Expected would have been "ASSAILANT", the truth is Trayvon is innocent and GZ's bloody nose happened while Trayvon lay dying.

A $30,000 reward is being offered in the case of missing Maine toddler Ayla Reynolds, the largest missing person reward in the state's history.
In announcing the reward, police said that they believe there is foul play in the disappearance of the 20-month-old girl who has been missing since Dec. 17.
"We are confident that Ayla did not let herself out of the house," Waterville Police Chief Joseph Massey said. "We believe that someone removed Ayla from the house, and that is where our investigation is focusing."

THE CREWS ALSO USED…poor Myra,

THE CREWS ALSO USED THE SEARCH AS A TRAINING OPPORTUNITY FOR THE TWO AGENCIES.

MADISON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -
On Thursday, dive teams from Madison and Ridgeland wrapped up their 2nd day of searching the pond across from Myra Lewis' home in Camden. The dive team tells us that the pond is clear as it relates to the search.
"We've overlapped the patterns," said Madison Fire Department shift commander Dwayne Meeks. "Did grid searches in the pond. We've overlapped the grid searches. So we have put our hands on the bottom of this pond."
Crews used sonar in the pond twice before sending in divers. The first time was the first day Myra went missing. They repeated the process on Tuesday. Meeks said the divers serve as a double check.
"It's stumps and logs and the divers can actually get up under those stumps and logs and check to make sure there's nothing in this pond," described Meeks.
Meeks said anytime you put a diver in the water, it's dangerous. The depth of the pond on Mt. Pilgrim Road can go from 2 to 14 feet quickly when divers are searching. They have to keep safety a priority.
The crews also used the search as a training opportunity for the two agencies.
"Clear this pond," explained Meeks. "That way there's no question of anything that could be in it."
The Madison County Sheriff's Department says the divers are part of the investigative process and not the result of a new lead.

Courtney is black so her black sister was arrested. Justin is white so the DHHS helped him take Ayla against her will, Ayla intuitively cried,struggled and bit in an attempt to stay in a safe environment. Since Ayla's disappearance Justin and Lance (both white) have commited crimes with a bat, and Justin assaulted Courtney(black). Justin is free. white privilege

It has changed how I see everything. Even without catching everything, I see the deception in the little things.

This blog is like part of my daily life now. The one place where I can come where others see past the BS we hear, see and read everyday.

Shelley said...

How do I see things.....the more I read the more I realize it's very different.


I would think that no matter how much they may hate LE... If your baby girl was missing.... I would think you wouldn't be focused on your personal anti police views but a mad panic to find your child. A normal loving parent would panic. They would care only about getting help for their child. Personal views should have no place here. Your concern should be about that child.

And seriously....look at this case to date. LE has really put their heart into this case. So LE clearly has shown they care.

But.... if your issues with LE are due to your own bad choices in life... As is clearly the case here (fraud, domestic violence) Then that to me goes back to the core that if you wish to live life making bad choices then you have no right bringing kids into that life. And by the way....there is a way to prevent that. Birth control. FYI it does work. This is not new..... If you are not prepared or capable of being a parent.....DONT HAVE KIDS.

But instead we see parents like this, that bring trouble to their lives who choose to have kid after kid after kid (10 between the 2 of them in this case). I hear excuses that they don't know different. Hmmm really? So you were raised in the forest? Raised by wolves. No? We'll then you know the difference. You know that stealing is illegal. You know that being hit hurts. So you know. No more excuses.

My step sons girlfriend (she's 17 now) was raised by a former real East LA gang banger. This man beat her mother so bad she is in a facility and they live in the projects. She wants better. She's a jr but in all advanced classes, has a job and is taking college classes to be a medical assistant. She choose to be better. She was raised in violence and crime yet choose to be better.

But excuses are the core of life today. I hit my kids because I was hit. I steal cause my parents did crack.etc etc etc. If you can not love your child and put their well being ahead of yourself.... DONT HAVE KIDS. It's a simple fix, but seems impossible.

This Lewis family...they have made many bad choices. I am sure there is more..criminals don't always get caught. But they already proved that they don't put the safety of their kids first, there were guns (maybe it was just one gun) were laying in plain view. That alone puts young kids at risk. You are doing things that put your kids at risk, you clearly don't put your kids.

So any negative comments that are coming to them are deserved. They made bad choices and brought kids into those bad choices.

So if we are judging them.... That is on them. If Myra's safety was the most important thing..their actions would so that. There have been no actions at all. That says it all.

I joined Webslueths but quickly realized it was not for me with their "everyone is innocent unless they are convicted" mind set. They lashed out at me for questioning mom and dad... Yet refused to lash out on mom and dad despite illegal activities and sheer lack of concern for own child.

I believe the parents of Myra are responsible for her disappearance period.

Just as I think a Justin killed Ayla, Becky and Sergio killed Isabel,Mark killed Dylan and that Gerry and Kate pumped their kids full of sedatives to make their kids sleep and accidentally killed Madeleine.

I think Myra fell to harms way because of her parents.

What if Myra wanted to go grocery shopping with her mom? Myra probably ran to go along and was unseen by her mom,( if she was accidently killed by the SUV.) The photo's show Myra in a shopping cart smiling and having fun, clearly she enjoyed grocery shopping.(Photo speaks to mom's guilt, she should have taken Myra with her)
