Couple Indicted for Puppy Snuff Films

Two Indicted for Online Distribution of Puppy-Snuff Videos

A Houston man and woman are being indicted for allegedly distributing snuff films online in which puppies and other animals were tortured and killed, federal officials said.
Federal authorities say the pair made eight videos — bearing titles like puppy 1whitechick andcrushblackluvsample — that depicted puppies, chickens, kittens and other animals being tortured and killed.
The indictment (.pdf) on Wednesday of Brent Justice, 51, and Ashely Richards, 22, comes three months after they faced similar state allegations in Texas for producing and distributing the graphic movies, referred to as “crush” videos. The two remain in a Houston jail on the state charges and are set to appear in a Texas federal court next month to answer to the new charges.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said it forwarded to the authorities footage that allegedly showed Richards “cutting the leg and slashing the neck and throat of a puppy before beheading the struggling animal with a meat cleaver.”
Under federal law, a crush video is one in which any living non-human mammal, bird, reptile, or amphibian is “intentionally crushed, burned, drowned, suffocated, impaled, or otherwise subjected to serious bodily injury.”
The two face seven federal charges, each of which carries a maximum five-year prison term.
The two were being charged in a local Houston court until the federal indictment was unsealed Wednesday, the authorities said.
In August, a Harris County magistrate suspended reading of the allegations “because they were too gruesome.” The state court case accused them of using high-heeled shoes, knives, meat cleavers, pliers and screwdrivers to torture and kill animals, which included mice, lobsters and other animals.
The federal indictment alleges they produced the films “with the objective of earning a profit.”

Cold Case: Killer of 10 Year Old Arrested

Man arrested in 1993 disappearance of 10-year-old Florida girl

Nearly 20 years after 10-year-old Andrea Parsons vanished from her Florida neighborhood a convicted felon has been arrested and charged with her murder.
42-year-old Chester Duane Price was arrested Thursday and charged with killing Andrea, whose body has never been found. The arrest comes after Price voluntarily returned to the area to give testimony to a grand jury in the case, The Palm Beach Post reports.
Martin County Sheriff Robert Crowder said in a news conference Thursday detectives were led to Price after a team was assigned to review the evidence in the case last year.
“The resolve to find Andrea and get answers surrounding the circumstances of her disappearance has never wavered,” he said.
Price has an extensive criminal history dating back to 1991. He lived in the same county as Andrea at the time of her disappearance, and deputies said they had their eye on him from the beginning, according to The Palm Beach Post
“We were aware of him from the beginning of the investigation … He was one of our people of interest,” Crowder told
Andrea vanished on July 11, 1993 after making a trip to a convenience store. She had been home with Pat Daniels, her mother's boyfriend at the time. He told authorities he had given her permission to walk to the store and to visit a friend because she was bored. She never returned.
The Palm Beach Post reports Andrea's neighbor, Claude Davis, told investigators he had seen men stuff Andrea  into a car the night she disappeared. He then said he had been collecting cans with the girl when she hit her head on a trash can and died. He said he drove around looking for help, but eventually dumped Andrea's body in a trash bin. 
Davis was charged with false imprisonment but the case was dropped in 1994 due to lack of evidence. He later served nine years in prison on unrelated charged, and told The Palm Beach Post in 2000 he did not know where Andrea was.
Crowder said Price and Davis knew each other, but declined to provide more details.
Price is charged with first degree murder and kidnapping of a child under the age of thirteen. He remains in custody at the Martin County Jail with no bond.

Man Burns Kids With Cigarette

 Police have arrested a Houlton man and charged him with multiple crimes after he allegedly burned two youngsters with a lit cigarette.
Houlton Police Chief Butch Asselin said late Thursday afternoon that Adam Maguire, 28, was charged with violating conditions of release, two counts of domestic violence assault and two counts endangering the welfare of a child.
The Bangor Daily News is not releasing the names of the youngsters as they are victims.
According to police, Maguire burned both of the children with a lit cigarette in their upper back and neck areas “in an attempt to show them pain compliance while meditating.”
Asselin said both victims had superficial burns on their skin.
The alleged acts were committed on Sunday, Nov. 25, at Maguire’s residence on State Street.
Maguire is currently on probation for the December 2008 Andy’s IGA burglary.
Maguire disclosed to Houlton Detective Kris Calaman that he has a history of self-mutilation.
Police received a statement from Maguire’s girlfriend, who said she and Maguire were showing the two children meditation techniques. They thought meditation would be helpful because one of the youngsters had been diagnosed with ADHD. The children were informed that when you clear your mind, you are no longer susceptible to pain, according to the police report.
The matter was referred to the Houlton Police Department by the Department of Health and Human Services. The children are now in the care of relatives.
Calaman is the investigating officer in the case, which remains under investigation.

Investigators: Dylan's Father Not Suspect

VALLECITO, La Plata County - Federal investigators searched the home of Dylan Redwine's father Thursday morning. Mark Redwine was the last person who saw his 13-year-old son, before Dylan disappeared last Monday.
"The Sheriff's Office is not calling Mark Redwine a suspect," Dan Bender, La Plata County Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer, said. "However, since that house was the last place Dylan was seen, it is only prudent to do a more thorough search of that house and property for any information that can help direct us to Dylan."

Investigators searched Mark's home initially last week. Thursday's search was considered more thorough.

Thursday morning, Mark told 9NEWS he was going to spend the day with FBI and CBI investigators.

Dylan disappeared from his father's home in Vallecito. Vallecito is 20 minutes east of Durango. Dylan was visiting his father for Thanksgiving break. Mark Redwine was the last person to see his son.

"Our goal is to bring Dylan home," Mark Redwine told 9NEWS.
Why does this need to be said?

Investigators said it was important to search Mark's home again because that was the last place Dylan was seen.

On Wednesday, the La Plata County Sheriff's Department said they no longer believed Dylan ran away. Earlier in the week they said there are two possible outcomes: 1) that Dylan ran away 2) that he was abducted or foul play was involved.

The issue facing investigators is a lack of evidence. No clues were left behind that would point them in the direction of Dylan's whereabouts. Dylan is 13 years old and is described as an "urban kid" who loves to play video games. His brother Cory said Dylan isn't much of an "outdoorsy type of teen."

Couple Who Beat 3 Year Old Found in Florida

Wanted couple from Plaistow arrested in Florida

Pair sought by police after boy seriously injured


A Plaistow couple wanted by police after a seriously injured 3-year-old boy was taken to a hospital have been arrested, U.S. marshals said Wednesday.
Police had been looking for Roland Dow, 27, and Jessica Linscott, 23, for 14 days after Linscott's son, James, was taken to a hospital with serious injuries.
Dow and Linscott were arrested Wednesday evening at Universal Studios in Orlando, Fla. The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force said the two had been watching a parade and were heading back toward the attractions area when they were arrested without incident.
David Charles of the U.S. Marshals Service said the two were taken into custody the minute they laid eyes on them.
"I find it very sad that these two were located in an area designed to bring joy and happiness to children," said marshal David Cargill. "I want to thank the public for their assistance in providing the tips which led to this arrest."
Cargill said the two were located after investigators sifted through the "sometimes overwhelming" number of tips they received. Those tips led officials to Orlando.
The boy's grandmother said James had a second brain surgery at Children's Hospital in Dartmouth. Law enforcement officials said the Department of Children, Youth and Families has legal custody of the boy.

Officials had said anyone who was helping the couple evade capture could face charges.

Linscott has been charged with multiple counts of child endangerment, and Dow was charged with first- and second-degree assault.

The two are being held at Orange County Jail pending their arraignment on fugitive from justice charges. If they waive extradition, Dow and Linscott will be picked up by authorities from New Hampshire and returned to the Granite State, officials said.

Colin Koehler: Thrill Killer in Maine

Statement Analysis is in bold type, added to the article.  
A reliable denial is simple:
1.  The First Person Singular Pronoun, "I"
2.  The past tense verb:  "did not" or "didn't"
3.  Specific to the Allegation:  "I did not kill Holly Boutiler"

This does not need to wait for truth to come out:  the truly innocent (not just judicially innocent) will say so, easily, early and often, and without sensitivity indicators or additional language.  
Liars will say they "would" never, but will avoid the above formula for a reliable denial. 
This man was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.  Underlining, color and italics have been added for emphasis, with analysis in bold type.  We often look for articles which claim "denials" are made only to find that there was no denial of the action, or, in the least, there was no reliable denial. 

To know more about this brutal crime, see:   HERE

Of note and concern is when a profiler says that a violent murder is simply not committed by someone without a history of violence.  In this case, the subject was fined for threatening, but had no history of violence, and only had traffic issues.  

He slit a girl's throat to prove he was not involved with her.  He had known her for a single day.  We do not need to see an increase in violence to reach this point.  This argument was made (and is now outdated) about the Ramseys.  We continue to see cases in which an extremely violent act is carried out by someone without a history of violence.  History, by itself, is not a defense.  

[¶27] The court found, as mitigating factors, that Koehler had no substantial criminal history, had no prior antisocial diagnosis, and had a close relationship with his family. The court found that the lack of any mental health diagnosis was only a limited mitigating factor, however, because Koehler’s commission of this crime made it impossible to predict whether he would reoffend; there was no condition to treat or effort that could be made to prevent him from reoffending" 
BANGOR, Maine — Colin Koehler on Thursday repeatedly denied brutally stabbing to death a 19-year-old woman last year, but he could not explain how Holly Boutilier’s blood got on the bluejeans that police recovered from his bedroom or who sent text messages confessing to the crime from a cell phone number Koehler said was his.
Koehler also testified that the knife prosecutors identified as the murder weapon resembles one stolen from his apartment several months before Boutilier’s death on Aug. 8, 2009. In addition, he denied confessing to the half-dozen witnesses who have testified that Koehler told them he stabbed Boutilier in the abdomen and throat.
The defense rested its case after Koehler spent more than 2½ hours on the stand. The prosecution rested Wednesday.
The jury is expected to begin deliberating today after closing arguments and instructions from the judge.
I am very eager to explain my side of it and to let the truth be told,” Koehler, 35, said as he took the stand.
Note that he was not only "eager" but "very eager" to:
1.  Explain his side
2.  Let the truth be told
Please note the order with his "side" coming before truth.
Next, note that "truth be told" is passive language, rather than say, "I will tell the truth" it is without the pronoun, "I".  He does not say that the will tell the truth, only that he is eager to "let the truth be told."  He does not say by whom the truth will be told.  This is distancing language. 
Dressed in gray slacks, a dress shirt, blue blazer and tie, Koehler was calm on the witness stand. His demeanor bore a striking resemblance to the words his friends and mother used to describe him Thursday morning — calm, gentle and artistic.
The accused killer’s appearance also bore little resemblance to the mug shot released after his arrest. Since then, he has let his closely cropped brown hair grow long and worn it combed back from his forehead. He has worn a dress shirt, tie, slacks and sports coat to court every day this week.
The victim’s parents and other family members sat directly in front of Koehler while he was on the stand and directly across the aisle from the defendant’s parents. Family members on both sides showed little emotion as he spoke.
Koehler was arrested on Aug. 11, 2009, after a brief standoff with Bangor police outside his Columbia Street apartment. He has pleaded not guilty to intentional or knowing murder. He has been held without bail at the Penobscot County Jail since his arrest.
The defendant and Justin Ptaszynski, 28, of Bangor went for a walk along the Penobscot River with Boutilier on Aug. 8, 2009, Ptaszynski testified Tuesday. Her bloody body was found by a transient the next day in a cluttered shack not far from the end of Dutton Street, which runs from Main Street to the riverfront between Hollywood Slots and Geaghan’s Pub.
Outside the courtroom earlier this week, defense attorney Richard Hartley of Bangor described Ptaszynski as an alternative suspect. Originally charged with murder, Ptaszynski pleaded guilty in May in Kennebec County Superior Court to the lesser charge of hindering apprehension or prosecution. He was sentenced to 10 years with all but six suspended and is incarcerated at the Maine State Prison in Warren.
Koehler was adamant Thursday that the last time he saw Boutilier was about 1 a.m. the day she was killed, when she left his apartment with Ptaszynski. Ptaszynski later returned and slept at Koehler’s apartment, both men agreed. The next day, they left the apartment together.
Ptaszynski testified Tuesday they met up with Boutilier and walked south on Main Street past the Bangor police station. Koehler said Thursday that he is not depicted in a surveillance video of two men and a woman walking down Cedar Street past Summer Street near the station about 1:15 p.m. that Saturday. Ptaszynski and investigators testified earlier this week that it was Koehler.
Koehler said Thursday that he left Ptaszynski in Pickering Square and headed toward the Bangor waterfront, where a charity basketball and music event was being held in a parking lot. The defendant testified that he left the record company-sponsored event with Ptaszynski and walked south along the railroad tracks, sharing a marijuana cigarette.
The defendant said that he and Ptaszynski are the two men shown in surveillance videos from cameras outside Hollywood Slots facing Dutton Street. Koehler also said he is the man with Ptaszynski in footage taken at Shaw’s Supermarket, where the two returned a video.
Under direct- and cross-examination, Koehler insisted that on Sunday, Aug. 9, 2009, between 11:20 a.m. and noon he could not have been texting his former girlfriend Jessica Palmer, 23, of Bangor or Ken Creamer, 21, of Hartland, the man Palmer said she left Koehler for. The defendant testified that the phone he had with him when he went to the Bangor police station that day to try to drop charges filed against Creamer on July 31 had run out of minutes.
Koehler said that he was playing a game on his phone and not texting as it appeared in video from cameras at the station. He testified that his only working phone was at his apartment being charged during that time frame. Koehler, however, admitted that the text messages found on cell phones belonging to Palmer and Creamer came from his phone.
Although Koehler said several times that he had a theory about how the evidence gathered by investigators pointed in his direction, he did not elaborate on it.
Before Koehler took the stand, Hartley introduced a letter in which Christopher Goode of Bangor confessed to the crime. Goode, who said he suffers from mental illness and has been in and out of jail often, testified that he wrote the letter under duress and threats from Koehler and another inmate.
Koehler said he had heard that Goode had admitted killing Boutilier. The defendant said another inmate encouraged Goode to write out his confession.

Dylan Redwine: Mother Suspects Ex

Missing Boy's Mother Suspects Ex-Husband in Son's Disappearance

Dylan Redwine was last seen at the home of his father, Mark Redwine, when he vanished seven days ago.
"I was married to Mark for a lot of years, and I know the way he reacts to things," Elaine Redwine told ABC News. "If Dylan maybe did or said something that wasn't what Mark wanted to hear, I'm just afraid of how Mark would have reacted."
Elaine and Mark were divorced and live about five hours away from each other, ABC News affiliate KMGH reports. Dylan was staying at his father's home because of a court order granting his father visitation rights for Thanksgiving.
Elaine Redwine told ABC News she believes her ex-husband was upset that she was the court-mandated primary custodian of their son.
"I don't think Mark treats him very well," Elaine Redwine said. "I would not put it past Mark to have done something to remove Dylan from the situation. You know, like 'if I can't have him, nobody will.'"
This fear of her ex and his behavior will impact the mother's language. 
Dylan had been with his dad in Vallecito, Colo., for just one day before he went missing. Mark Redwine told police that his son was in his home when he left to run some errands at 7:30 a.m. When he returned four hours later, the boy was missing.

Police say they are considering a number of possibilities, including abduction and the possibility that Dylan ran away.
Mark Redwine declined to speak to ABC News.
"He hasn't had any contact with us. [My older son] tried to get a hold of him by texting him, and he wouldn't respond," she said. "I just find it odd that at a time like this, he would be so evasive."Elaine Redwine told ABC News she was having a difficult time getting in touch with her ex-husband about their son.
"Foul play is definitely something we are looking at, but we're hoping it's a runaway case and that Dylan will show up and will be fine," La Plata Sheriff's Office spokesman Dan Bender said. "Because we don't have any clues that point in any particular direction, we have to consider every possibility."
Dylan's mother and older brother both insist Dylan wouldn't run away without contacting them, or if he did run away from his dad's home, he would have gone to them.
"When he was afraid in any situation, he knew he could call me and I would drop everything and go out there, first thing," Dylan's brother, Cory Redwine, 21, told ABC News. "He knew that me, my mom, my step-dad, any of us, if he called us and said, 'I need your help,' he knew we'd be there."
Hundreds of people have turned up to help search for Dylan, but so far police say they are no closer to finding him.
"We had people in the air, on horseback, on ATVs, search dogs, and we got no clues from any of that," Bender said.
Dive teams are searching nearby Vallecito Lake using a high-powered sonar gun, after searches this weekend revealed nothing, according to KMGH. Search teams are also combing the shoreline around the lake.
Elaine Redwine told ABC News she thinks somebody must know something, and she hopes they come forward.
"Vallecito is a small community. If anybody has seen anything or knows anything, no matter how big or small it seems, please tell us," Redwine said. "Everything right now is crucial to bringing my little boy home."
Redwine is described as 5 feet tall, 105 pounds, blond hair, blue eyes and fair complexion. He was last seen wearing a black Nike shirt, black basketball nylon shorts, black Jordan tennis shoes and a two-tone blue and white Duke Blue Devils baseball hat

Neighbor Arrested in Jersey Bridgeman Murder

The neighbor charged in the killing of a 6-year-old Arkansas girl was a family friend, police said Tuesday.
Bentonville Police Chief Jon Simpson described Zachary Holly, 28, as "an acquaintance" and a family friend who is from the area. Holly is being held in the Benton County Jail on charges of capital murder, kidnapping and residential burglary.
Jersey Bridgeman, whose high-profile child abuse case last year sent her father and stepmother to prison, was reported missing the morning of Nov. 20. Minutes after a search for her began, Jersey's body was discovered in an abandoned house two doors from her home in Bentonville.
Holly and his wife live next door to where Jersey was staying, police said. Court records show the couple was married in March. Holly worked at a fast-food restaurant, Simpson said.
Simpson told The Associated Press the couple didn't have any children, but that Holly's wife has a child who is "pretty much the same age as our victim." Simpson would not give specifics on how well the families knew each other.
When asked if Jersey and the child of Holly's wife were friends, Simpson said, "They're the same age, I think you could categorize them as family friends, acquaintances, all that."

Jersey's short life was checkered with discomfort. About a year before her death, her father and stepmother were charged with abuse after investigators discovered they had chained her to a dresser to stop her wandering around the house at night. David Bridgeman, Jersey's father, told investigators he restrained his daughter to prevent her from getting into medication and other things around the house.Simpson said Monday that Holly will have a bail and probable cause hearing Wednesday, during which a probable cause affidavit will be released. At that point, "many questions related to this investigation and arrest will be answered," Simpson said.
He wouldn't release details Tuesday of how Jersey died or what led police to Holly, nor would he discuss possible motives.
Prosecutor Van Stone didn't return phone messages Tuesday seeking comment.
David and Jana Bridgeman, Jersey's stepmother, pleaded guilty in June to false imprisonment, permitting abuse of a minor and endangering the welfare of a minor.
Jana Bridgeman is serving a 12-year prison sentence, plus three years for a probation revocation. David Bridgeman is serving an 18-year prison sentence.
Police Capt. Justin Thompson said there was "no reason ... for the community to be worried at this point," but otherwise revealed little more about the homicide investigation in Bentonville some 215 miles northwest of Little Rock.
Thompson said the girl died sometime between midnight and 6:53 a.m. on the day her body was found. He would not say who called 911 to report her missing. Investigators later searched the home where she lived and the house where her body was found, as well as the homes in between.
A funeral for Jersey is set for 1 p.m. Tuesday at Rollins Funeral Chapel in Rogers.

Statement Analysis: Troy Lyons, Maine Corrections Officer

Troy Lyons said he was assaulted while on duty October 29th, 2012, working as a corrections officer.  Police said it did not happen, and he self injured and has lied.  He was offered a polygraph and refused. 
Statement Analysis gets to the truth.  Did the assault really happen?
Statement Analysis is in bold type with emphasis added to the italics.  

The Expected:

In Statement Analysis, we deal with the "unexpected."  We first set up what we expect to hear; we put ourselves in the shoes of the subject.  We expect him to tell the truth.  If we do not hear the simple and expected, we are 'surprised' and analyze the words.  
This is how deception is detected.  
What we listen for is the officer tell us that it happened, using the pronoun, "I", a past tense verb, and address the issue specifically.  Because his account has been called a story:  We look for him to then say, "I told the truth." 
These simple words are avoided by the deceitful and are used, easily and often, by the truthful.  
Q.  Why should we believe you?
A.  Because I told the truth. 
This is the expected.  He should simply say what happened, without story telling, vague language, or passivity. 
Passive language is used to conceal identity or responsibility. 
"I heard a gun shot and saw my husband lying in a pool of blood on the floor."
This is a truthful statement but it omits that she fired the gun. 
"There was a struggle and the gun went off..."  Guns do not go off, people pull triggers. 
He should not tell us what did not happen, what was not thought, and so forth. 
The Form  

We will also test his statement on its form.  
A truthful statement will dedicate the most number of lines (or words) to what happened.  The percentage is:  
25% of the words or lines used will describe what happened leading up to the assault
50% of the words will be dedicated to the actual assault. It is the most important part of the account and anything close to 50% should be considered reliable. 
25% of the words will be about what happened afterwards, such as calling 911, or getting help.  
Truthful people dedicate the most words (or lines) to the actual event, since that is the most important part of the account. 
Deceptive people overwhelmingly (85% or more) dedicate more words (or lines) to the introduction.  This appears to be a 'delay' or an 'avoidance' in getting to the event, which, if deceptive, causes internal stress. 
Let us see if the words of Troy Lyons show truth or deception.  

Here is his account:  
It was the night of Hurricane Sandy, and there were high winds,” Lyons said Monday. “I was outside making a cellphone call to my girlfriend, saying goodnight to her as I do every night, and I saw a shadow on the side of the fence. I walked around, through a bunch of obstructions, but didn’t see anything. Then I looked up and got hit, and went down, and I remember hearing a car squealing off.

An assault is very personal, and will have sensory detail to it.  Note:
1.  "It was the night..." uses "it was", which is passive language and more used in story telling.
2.  Note the additional language:  "making a cellphone call"; we sometimes see the use of additional, or needless language, in an attempt to persuade
3.  "saying goodnight" is also needless. He may not have introduced her because she may not want her name in the press.  
4.  "as I  do every night" is the same as "normal", which is a signal that this was not the norm, but rather story telling. 
5.  "but didn't see anything":  also makes for good story telling but it is not what honest people report.  In an assault, victims tell us what happened and what they saw. 
6. "and got it" is passive language.  Passivity is used to conceal identity or responsibility.  
“I was at the wrong place at the wrong time,” the corrections officer said. I don’t know if someone was trying to throw some contraband over the fence, or what. I spooked somebody, and then they clocked me. I had lacerations to my face and injuries to my shoulder and the muscles in my chest, and my knee keeps popping out.”
He does not connect himself to the assault:  Instead, he uses story telling language. He should tell us what he knows, and not what he does not know.  
Asked what possible motive Lyons would have for injuring himself, Smith said Lyons had used up all his sick leave and vacation days.
That’s bull,” Lyons said Monday. “I’ve worked there 12 years, and I was just promoted to sergeant in April. When this happened I had 24 hours of vacation time, eight hours of sick leave and two days of comp time.”
If "that" is bull, it indicates there is a "this" that is the actual reason.  This is a good  place to say "I told the truth" but he avoids it.  
Police offered him a polygraph so that he could assert this as truthful.  
The refusal to polygraph gave police the confidence to go public.  
Remember the recent article:  This and That?
When someone says that they did not do "that", it indicates that there is a "this" to the account. 
Johnny came home from school and his mother said, "The teacher called and said you ran up to Sally, pulled her hair, and knocked her to the ground!"
Johnny said, "I didn't do that."  The key word is "that." 
Mother: "What did you do, then, Johnny?"
Johnny said, "I didn't run up to her, I was right next to her."  He had pulled her hair and knocked her to the ground but could say "I didn't do that" indicting that there was a "this" that he did do.  
I live in Lubec, and, from what people have heard and read, my name is mud,” Lyons said Monday. “People come up to me and call me a liar. It’s been a very emotional strain. My injuries are healed, and nothing restricts me from going back to work, but they don’t want me back.”
This is the perfect place for him to say he is not a liar and "I told the truth" but he does not.  
Testing a Statement By its Form 
There is another aspect of Statement Analysis that can be applied to his statement:

Testing a statement on its form. 
A truthful statement will be:
1.  25% introduction
2.  50% event
3.  25% post event
Most deceptive statements, on their form, will be heavily weighted in the introduction.  

He uses 59 words in his introduction
He uses  5 words for the assault
He uses 8 words to describe what happened after the assault. 

Total words used  72 

Introduction:   82%
Event:                  7%
Post Event:        11%  
On its form:   Deception Indicated. 

Analysis Conclusion:

Police are correct.  Troy Lyons is deceptive about what happened
on the night he reported being assaulted.  

The deception is indicated by both the language and the form of the statement. 

Casey Anthony Google Search

Did Casey Anthony do a Google search for 'fool-proof suffocation'?

The Florida sheriff's office that investigated the disappearance of Casey Anthony's 2-year-old daughter overlooked evidence that someone in their home did a Google search for "fool-proof" suffocation methods on the day the girl was last seen alive.
Orange County sheriff's Captain Angelo Nieves said the office's computer investigator missed the June 16, 2008, search. The agency's admission was first reported by Orlando television station WKMG. It's not known who performed the search. The station reported it was done on a browser primarily used by the 2-year-old's mother, Casey Anthony, who was acquitted of the girl's murder in 2011.
Anthony's attorneys argued during the trial that Casey Anthony helped her father, George Anthony, cover up the girl's drowning in the family pool.

WKMG reports that sheriff's investigators pulled 17 vague entries only from the computer's Internet Explorer browser, not the Mozilla Firefox browser commonly used by Casey Anthony. More than 1200 Firefox entries, including the suffocation search, were overlooked.
Whoever conducted the Google search looked for the term "fool-proof suffication," misspelling "suffocation," and then clicked on an article about suicide that discussed taking poison and putting a bag over one's head.
The browser then recorded activity on the social networking site MySpace, which was used by Casey Anthony but not her father.
A computer expert for Anthony's defence team found the search before the trial. Her lead attorney, Jose Baez, first mentioned the search in his book about the case but suggested it was George Anthony who conducted the search after Caylee drowned because he wanted to kill himself.
Not knowing about the computer search, prosecutors had argued Caylee was poisoned with chloroform and then suffocated by duct tape placed over her mouth and nose. The girl's body was found six months after she disappeared in a field near the family home and was too decomposed for an exact cause of death to be determined.
Prosecutors presented evidence that someone in the Anthony home searched online for how to make chloroform, but Casey Anthony's mother, Cindy, claimed on the witness stand that she had done the searches by mistake while looking up information about chlorophyll.
Many jurors apparently went into hiding amid public outrage over the verdict and refused to comment, but two have said prosecutors couldn't conclusively prove how Caylee died.
Prosecutors Linda Drane Burdick and Jeff Ashton did not respond to emails.
But Ashton told WKMG that "it's just a shame we didn't have it. This certainly would have put the accidental death claim in serious question."
Baez didn't respond to phone or email messages but told WKMG that he expected prosecutors to bring up the search at trial.
"When they didn't, we were kind of shocked," Baez, who no longer represents Anthony, told the station. Her attorney, Cheney Mason, who was also on the trial team, didn't return an email, and his office answering service refused to take a phone message.
The sheriff's office didn't consult the FBI or Florida Department of Law Enforcement for help searching the computer in the Anthony case, a mistake investigators have learned from, Nieves said.

Dylan Redwine, 13, Missing: Mother's Letter

Dylan Redwine, 13, disappeared last Monday from his father's home in Vallecito, near Durango during a court-ordered visit.

Dear Dylan
I don't know if you can see this and I know your not a big reader so I will keep this short. We are all in Durango looking for you.
I AM HERE and I will never give up looking for you. You are my ray of sunshine and the best kid a mother could ever have. I miss your laugh and your smile so much. We will find you and bring you home with us!
We all love you so much son and hope you are safe. You are the glue in our family so come home and stick us back together! your mother!
We love and miss you immensely and will never stop searching for you. Don't give up on us son we will NEVER give up on you.
Love Your Mommy.
and Big Brother and Mike!

Here is the same letter with analysis.  There are no indications of guilty knowledge by the mother.  Some aspects are not given much commentary for obvious reasons. 

Dear Dylan
I don't know if you can see this and I know your  (sic) not a big reader so I will keep this short. We are all in Durango looking for you.
Note how it begins:  Where someone chooses to begin is often important and can even be the reason for writing.  Here, she writes that she does not know if Dylan can see this.  It begins with pronoun, "I", even though it is from 3 people.  That the mother does not know, is critical, and the pronoun tells us how deeply personal this is.  It is also in the negative = very important. 

"Not a big reader" is also in the negative and an insight into education/life and struggles within the family.  

I AM HERE and I will never give up looking for you. 

Very strong statement, including the Upper Case by the mother. 
Note:  "never give up" may indicate desperation and hopelessness that may have, by now, crept into her thinking; or...
it could be something else.  The analyst must remain open and note any repetition as sensitive.  
You are my ray of sunshine and the best kid a mother could ever have. I miss your laugh and your smile so much. We will find you and bring you home with us!
Very personal.  Note when a plural statement goes to the pronoun, "I", it increases importance.   Here, he is a "kid."  In context, the "kid" is "the best" and she uses "laugh" and "smile" about him. 
We all love you so much son and hope you are safe. You are the glue in our family so come home and stick us back together!

Here, he is a "son" and there is emphasis on "all" and is in the context of "love."
use of "all" is emphatic and may indicate that Dylan may not have felt close to all included in the letter; perhaps the last person named. 

Dylan as "the glue" suggests brokenness; that is, the need for repairing glue.  At 13, he is not a "baby", and the mother may wish him to feel important, enhancing his own self worth and value for him to read. your mother!
It is in the imperative; very strong, and very personal.  In relation to being a "mother" he is, indeed, a "son", which suggests responsibility.  The sentence begins with "Son"; tender but strong. 

We love and miss you immensely and will never stop searching for you. Don't give up on us son we will NEVER give up on you.

Very sad.  The loving and missing is highly sensitive with "immensely" and she wants him to know this.  He may have felt or expressed the contrary. 

The "never" is sensitive (this is its 3rd usage) and suggests that Dylan may have felt "given up on" in the past, perhaps by one or more of the three named, or by his father.  Dylan may need this assurance.  It may not be just that there is hopelessness in the searching (it will "never" end) but may be something between mother and son.  If Dylan felt that they had "given up on him", it would make sense that the mother would repeat, "never" in her plea to him.  Time has gone by and fear has likely brought havoc to the mother, big brother, and Mike, but predominantly to the mother. 

This is highly personal. 

Love Your Mommy.
and Big Brother and Mike!
Note the order of the names.  
Note that "Mommy" is used, which is not often used in dealing with a 13 year old.  This is actual insight into how deeply she cares for him, and how horribly vulnerable she is.  "Mommy" is for younger children:  this mother is likely tormenting herself, particularly reliving his entire 13 years.  To her, Dylan may still be her "baby" and she is the "Mommy."

These maternal references show how immeasurably deep the pain must be.
