Title: Chelsea Bruck missing from Newport Saturday night!
Post by: BigRedDog on October 27, 2014, 07:21:40 PM
She apparently disappeared from a halloween party on Post Rd. at Williams Rd.  I don't see an age posted in the only information I've seen.  I don't really do facebook so I can't go digging into her info to look for an age. 

Here's a facebook link with a couple of contacts though:

Here she is as 'Poison Ivy':

And here she is not in costume:

The MonroeNews article this morning says she's from Maybee...   but if you're just going by zip codes then a lot of the 'Maybee' area is served by the Monroe Post Office.  Bruck is a fairly common name in the Maybee area though. 

Here's a link to the MonroeNews article and that has a link to a facebook page but I'm not on Facebook and I can't get it to open :-\ :-\ :-\

I was listening to the scanner and both the Sheriff's Dept. and the MSP were busy working on this case.  I even heard 'Deputy Duncan' piloting the Raptor...   I thought it was almost too windy for a small helicopter last night.  They were using the Raptor to search the corn fields immediately behind and beside where the party was and then they were checking the ditches in the area too. 

My thought is she decided to try to walk home to Maybee for some reason.  There really isn't a straight route so she may have decided to take a short cut or two.  If she is still in that dark costume and wig it's going to be hard to see her.

I was reading through the comments on FB and a woman commented saying this:

"I met her yesterday. She was with a older lady with very long dark hair. They said they were from Maybee and just moved into a Hotel. Chelsea was looking for a job......."


This has me wondering...

Either way, I hope she's found safe.

There will be a candlelight vigil tonight at Heck Park on N. Dixie at 8pm.  You can also pick up fliers there if you want to help distribute them.

I saw a big OD green military looking helicopter fly north Monroe this afternoon and it was heading towards the 'search area'.  I'm thinking maybe something from National Guard base at Toledo Express or maybe from somewhere else and it had been down to Toledo Express to get fueled up.  I also saw a red helicopter fly over...  I thing that may have been Channel 4's chopper.  I heard all the Deetroit TV stations were set up out there for live broadcasts during the evening news.

If the sketch is anywhere close you'd think someone would have an idea, especially if he is a local guy.
But I think i read there were hundreds at the event so he could be from another area.

You cannot just emphasis enough that kids/young adults have to be with friends at all times.  They cannot go off with strangers or by themselves.  They just can't.

I think it's highly likely he is from outside this area.  And even if he is local it was apparently 3am when they were leaving so it's very likely that there were very few completely sober 'witnesses' at that point.  NBC24 Toledo said on the early am news this morning that investigators are getting a lot of tips after his photo was released.  But even if he's just from Toledo or Ann Arbor it's still going to take time to track him down...   and if he's from Indiana or another state or from central or upper Michigan it's going to take time.  And he may or may not hold the key to what happened to her.  Too many questions and not enough answers.

I read some comments from the man that did the videos.  The cameras were all permanently mounted and focused on the stage to record the bands.  He had reviewed them and said they showed very few people other than the bands that were performing.  I suppose there's always the long shot that one of them might have caught something though!

What I find very interesting and perhaps 'significant' is that she ran into a post or a tree shortly before she left the party.  Sounds like she had a black eye and was bleeding possibly from her nose.  It's entirely possible she could have suffered a concussion too...  no telling what might have happened in another hour or two :-\ :-\ :-\

Quite a few 'borrow' pits up along 75 and 275...   quite a few deep ditches and drains all across the area too.  And of course only a couple of miles from Lake Erie!

A little bit of Nancy Grace goes a lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng way with me...   I would have liked to have seen the segment on Chelsea last night...  hopefully someone will have recorded it and can put it on YouTube...   or maybe CNN doesn't allow that :-\

From WXYZ...   the story has gone national:

http://www.wxyz.com/news/case-of-missing-22-year-old-chelsea-bruck-getting-national-attention (http://www.wxyz.com/news/case-of-missing-22-year-old-chelsea-bruck-getting-national-attention)

Article from ToledoNewsNow:

http://www.toledonewsnow.com/story/27167191/monroe-county-sheriff-looking-for-people-in-photo-with-missing-woman (http://www.toledonewsnow.com/story/27167191/monroe-county-sheriff-looking-for-people-in-photo-with-missing-woman)

Here's the photo mentioned in the article above...   I can't tell if that's real blood or just fake blood or makeup on the man standing behind her with his hand on her shoulder.  One of the articles I've read this morning did say that all of the people in the photo have been identified and questioned.

Another article stated something I've thought all along...  they've started widening the search area toward her home in Maybee on the possibility she decided to walk home.  Although she would have most likely followed the roads there are certainly stretches where she might possibly have taken a 'short cut' because she could see lights on the next road.  I haven't heard anyone say how 'familiar' she was with the area where the party was...  most likely the closer she got to home the more familiar she would be and the more likely she might be to take a 'short cut' across a field or ditch or small woods...

At this point she could be anywhere in Monroe County...  or beyond!!!

Not sure where I read it now but the property the sheriff's dept. searched inside of was the home and buildings where the party was held.  I guess that would make sense.

I didn't find any that showed anyone wearing a Poison Ivy costume or anything that looked like the one posted of her wearing.

That jug was the poison to go with the character.   Could have been grape juice.   Besides, plenty of Christians drink.

I thought it was a potion bottle too.  I think many young adults who don't drink often may say never drinks.

I've read a couple of different articles that says she had been to this party in previous years.  I think on the facebook page about the party it says it's the 10th annual event. 

I read where she was there with friends from work (Olga's Kitchen at the mall).  Did they all (or even just one)  work than night until closing...  then have to go home and get ready and pick up the others and then drive out there.  Easily could have been after 11 or 12 before they even got there. 

Chelsea had been there before and hadn't had any problems so maybe she let her hair down a little more...  got a little more 'comfortable' with the situation...   who knows!?

Video from WXYZ yesterday.  This tent is located at the same site as the party.  Now they've got a couple of porta johns and a generator...   in fact that's a huge generator!!!  They could use that to run electric heaters in that tent and probably make it an oven!!!

The Mom works for MB&T and they have set up an account there for donations for search supplies.

I was driving across Mortar Creek road yesterday afternoon.  There were four people in reflective green safety vests walking along the tracks south of the road.  A couple of them were nearly to the edge of the right of way and looking under and around stuff.  I figured they were probably with the search party.  Another person was over on the next set of tracks and there was a van parked there on Mortar Creek.  They were too far off the road to talk to or I would have asked if they were part of the search team.

Young girls/women can't be alone at events or at the mall etc etc in the evening and night hours.  When they go together they have to stay together.  They cannot allow one from the group to stray away.  They can't let it happen.  It often times ends up tragic.
I even put some of the blame on the bar in Va where they saw that girl by herself and almost unable to walk.  They should have intervened and called 911.  They should know better being a bar/nightclub

Quote
Never mind talking to the GUYS she was seen with at the party, if I was a cop there i'd be wayyyyyyyyyy more interested in interrogating Chelsea's so called "friend" Rebecca to see what SHE had to say. This Rebecca supposedly took home all of Chelsea's belongings from the party, got on Chelsea's phone, and posted on Facebook as CHELSEA. I really hope these cops aren't ignorant, inept, wimpy, and severely lacking in common sense morons with iqs similar to their sleeve sizes. You know what I mean, the types that think women are incapable of committing crimes so they never think to ask them anything. Start thinking with the heads up north guys, instead of the ones down south. REBECCA is the key to this case.....period.

Or is it our local Sheriff Department only?

Sounds like they need a few more hard hitting detectives on this case.

Prayers for her safe return, and for her family.

I've been following it fairly close and I haven't seen any reference to the FBI being involved.  I believe there has to be some sign of an 'abduction' before they'll get involved.  So far there are no signs of 'anything' really!

Yesterday morning the MCSD put out a request for people to identify photos of some of the security guards that had been working at the party.  No reason given just a request.  My youngest immediately recognized one of them so we called with the info...  probably within an hour of when they put the request out...   when the officer heard the name he just said...  thank you for calling...   you're about the 10th caller to identify him...   "Do you know any of the others"?    It was only a few hours and we saw on the facebook site that all the security people had been identified. 

Now we just have to 'wait' to find out why they wanted to know all their names after a week of searching!

That's my point, I guess.  Shouldn't these types of questions been asked the day AFTER she went missing?  Why did they wait over a week?

I don't know...  Maybe it's easy for us to sit here and criticize their work, but things sure seem to be going slow.

My best 'guess' is that at first most everyone thought she'd just 'turn up' in a day or two and that would be the end of it.  As time went by though it started to become more apparent she wasn't just a 'walk away'!

Maybe they were busy following up on 'the friend with her phone' theory...  maybe that gal has finally been eliminated so now they're having to essentially 'start over' and they're doing what does make sense...  who were the security guards.  They would be the ones most likely to have at least been paying some attention to vehicles and party goers arriving and leaving.

I suspect the guy who held the party didn't even know everyone he "hired" to do security.   And I think a lot of this case is dependent on photos taken at that party --- and so far I haven't seen indications of many being turned over to police.   Of course, they could be, and we won't know.   The request I saw online was to turn your photos in to the police department.  .

With how often we hear people are taking selfies, I am surprised that so few pics have turned up.

Another comment I am seeing more of, is the possibility of being taken for sex-trade ("prevalent in Toledo area" --- ?)

I am trying to follow this closely.   In my younger days I knew a few of the Bruck family from the Maybee area.  I don't know if they are related to Chelsea, but it really has hit me hard.

The MCSD probably did not receive the photo until the day they requested the names.....people are slow in responding to the idea that a 22 year old would be kidnapped and I think the MCSD is doing the best they can under the circumstances.

I heard a girl talk today about how she saved a girl at a college party.
Said she and her friends saw the girl pretty well drunk or drugged by herself.  They couldn't get out of her who she was or where she lived so they took he to an emergency care unit.

I hadn't heard anything about a 'trust' although MB&T has been accepting donations in the name of the family since 'early on'...   I posted a link to that back when it was first in the news.  I'm thinking this may have been an error on the part of whoever developed the story for NG and then she just adds her 'passion points' and reads the article.  I've herd of the MB&T fund, a go fund me account or maybe even two of those...   and a couple of different rewards.

I'm not sure how the GoFundMe funds filter down to the intended recipients but I would assume they eventually have to end up with a local financial institution of some sort.  I guess if someone can explain that better I'd be interested in hearing exactly how it works.  It doesn't sound like either of those monies so far have been put toward the reward funds though.

I've seen a couple of stories this morning that are saying reporters won't be allowed to use live cameras...  doesn't that at least partially defeat the purpose of a press conference?

Here's an article with video that my youngest daughter sent me.  The young gal in the video had an injury to her nose (with a little blood) that sounds very similar to what has been reported Chelsea received at the party.  The gal in the video has lots of her teammates helping her recover and it's quite likely that Chelsea may not be receiving as much support if she is under similar circumstances!

guess the police have to make it Look like they are doing
"something".... I feel like she took off with some guy or was taken
against her will and........
God only knows what happend next....I mean think of those

I just wanted to let you know that your not going crazy in seeing something and go back an its not there. Sorry but I thought it would be best to remove it. Just in case the person in question monitors this site and gets nervous... Besides, I don't want to point the finger at someone who may not be involved. So I contacted the "Tell the Sheriff" and sent them the link to the picture.
I figured that that would be the best to do since this is still an open case.

I'm guessing it will be a tip...  maybe something obscure...  that will break this case!

Someone will stumble on her wig or maybe a few of the the leaves from her costume...   apparently she had made the costume herself and attached the leaves individually so they'll be very distinct if they're located...  just hope it's someone that realizes what they are!

With the number of people that were there and the distance some may have traveled it's probably possible some of them may know something but don't even realize she's missing yet!!!

I just sent another email. I photoshopped the sketch and picture side by side for comparison.
Obscure, maybe but who knows? Maybe the years looking at pictures for Monroe's lost history might pay off?
Who knows? Maybe it might be something and the Sheriff will release the picture to try to identify the person or have the person contact them. I think at this point... By any means necessary.

I absolutely agree. It has nothing to do with the current situation.
No one can help there because they were too drunk or high...
No body saw anything yet it is reported that she walked into a pole and cut herself bloody nose.
I think somebody or more saw what happened after that but either afraid or unsure of what they saw. Maybe if they took time and recalled what "may have been or happened" and can make a connection, I hope they at least report the information. Any one little thing can probably help solve this.

additionally, I don't buy into the cpmments made by her sister (at the outset of all this) about how 'Christian' thy are.  Thats BS.  Christian gals don't have tats for one and two, don't leave for a party at almost midnight....

I agree 100%.  That's why I asked earlier if the FBI has gotten involved.  They need some SERIOUS investigators to get to the bottom of this.  I'm pretty sure the feds would step in, if asked.  But, as time goes on, the trail grows cold...

I posted earlier that I thought that there had to be some indication of a kidnapping before they would step in...

I did find this on their website:

Quote
What is the Critical Incident Response Group?

The FBI’s Critical Incident Response Group (CIRG) provides rapid assistance to incidents in a crisis. Through CIRG, expert assistance is available in cases involving the abduction or mysterious disappearance of children, crisis management, hostage negotiation, criminal investigative analysis, and special weapons and tactics. CIRG also assists in the assessment, selection, and training of FBI undercover employees.


It appears if Chelsea were still a child they probably would step in but as a 'young adult' apparently not.

And don't forget...  they stepped right in and took over the investigation when the attorney and his kids got bombed...  that's been a long, long time and that one is still in the 'unsolved' file next to Nevaeh...   did they 'help' solve her case too ??? ??? ???

Well there are plenty of people that would like to remove 'just a few' weapons under the 2nd amendment too...   

once the nibbling starts then it just gets easier and easier and easier...   and then it's revoked in it's entirety!

I'm guessing there will probably be some effort now to shut this man down from having future parties...   but when you have the Sheriff saying he didn't even know there was a party going on there for the last 10 years it's pretty hard to say it's been bothering anyone. 

Until we know what actually happened to Chelsea (and from a sober witness that's saying she looked ok when she left) we won't know if any part of the party was to blame...  she's 22 years old...  maybe still young and naive...  by the time I turned 22 I'd been halfway around the world and spent almost 2 years in the Army!  Now that's an assembly group they should look at banning ;) ;) ;)

It's quite possible they are starting at the beginning.   There was a FB "comment" somewhere on their page today...someone who was there posted that they were told to not question where they are told to search, there is a valid reason they will be wherever they are sent.  I believe they are out in smaller groups (@6 it might have been) with a team leader from Tex Eq per group.   They were also told to not share anything they do/find on social media or with anyone other than the search personnel.  Not an exact quote.
Here is an update on the Tex Eq search today, along with a video.

She was seen heading toward the parking area which apparently was back that same lane we've seen several times in photos and news videos, however no one saw her leaving in a vehicle.  That doesn't mean she didn't leave but in all reality it's about the only shot they have at this point.  If she did in fact leave unseen in a vehicle then she could have ended up anywhere in the world by now. 

I watched the NBC24 Toledo early news and they had a brief segment...   no news on the weekend searches but they are now in the process of doing a 'purple ribbon' campaign.

Actually, I applaud The Jug and Trapperz for having the fundraisers - even if it's only 10 or 20% of their total income that will be donated.  That's basically any and all profits.  That's a lot more than all the other businesses that aren't doing anything to support the cause.

Plus, all patrons can easily dip into their pockets to donate as much as they like at the events.

Hope it os OK to copy/paste a FB post:

Megan Bruck
Just a heads up, we do have ribbons at the headquarters at the bank. A friend grabbed about 15 for me and I stopped up to north monroe floral boutique just now and they said they are delivering 50 purple bows to us today as well. Those ladies are truely amazing. As i was walking in a lady was walking out with a bow in both hands who gave me a hug and some comforing words. When i walked in there was a heaping pile of purple bows in the middle of the floor and a lady came out from the back with a half finished bow in one hand and a pair of scissors in the other and still gave me a hug. While in there a lady came in to get 2 bows and as i walked to my car a lady stopped me and was heading in to get some bows. I've been writing ‪#‎helpfindchelseabruck‬ on one tail and ‪#‎cantstopwontstop‬ on the other.

Also, tomorrow we will be opening the headquarters at the bank at 10am and closing up around 2 o'clock to head out to the Little Brown Jug for the benefit spaghetti dinner they are putting on for Chelsea Bruck. The dinner is $9.99 and 100% of the proceeds are going into the donation fund. We will have a table set up to sell T-shirts for $10, accept donations for wrist bands, and give out purple ribbons. Also we will be doing a 50/50 raffle and conducting a raffle for a pandora bracelet from milkins jewelers, and a mary kay gift basket. ALL PROCEEDS ARE GOING TOWARDS ADDING TO THE REWARD WITH CRIMESTOPPERS FOR ANY AND ALL INFORMATION PERTAINING TO THE LOCATION OF CHELSEA BRUCK. Please help us to bring my sister home!!!!!!!

Dawg, I don't know if I'm reading it wrong or what, but I believe it's Scott who posted the picture and is referring to the guy as a weirdo and such. Kyla and Heather just shared Scott's picture of the guy and sketch. I don't believe Scott is the "weirdo" in this situation. lol

Thanks ATG...   I see now that Scott was just the 'original' poster as you said...  I've removed my comment about him and offer my sincere apologies to him. 

I have to say I've read more Facebook posts in the last 3 weeks than I have in the rest of my prior life...  those are even 'strange' looking posts to me...  they appear to be phone screen captures it looks like.

At any rate I hope they are able to soon locate the guy shown in the photo and find out just what he knows about any of this.

BRD, that picture you posted with a guy and the sketch originally surfaced on FB October 28.  Some  even said "that looks like ______"    Well, _____ contacted police and was quite cooperative, is my understanding.  After that, the FB pages started asking for photos and names to only be sent directly to police, not to the FB pages.

I remember when Nevaeh went missing... I remember they had an expert that said most abductions, the person is usually found withing 10 miles from where they came up missing. If I remember correctly, that was the case with Nevaeh.
I've read that the search is been out five miles out... I hope there is searching further out.
I just wonder if anyone thought, if by chance, to look at every route possible from where the party took place to Maybee?

Mayo..

As heart breaking as it is, no point in second guessing anything or anyone.  It is what it is.  If she's found alive great.  If she isn't, you cannot change that and if she's never found, there is nothing you can do to impact that either.

As a very wise person once said ( don't know who it was).....'God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference....

If nothing else, there is a lesson to be learned here.

Parents, watch your kids.  Even if they are older.

Kids (includes young adults), watch over your friends. 

Pay attention, be observant, and vigilant.

And never take anyone for granted.

I've read that the search is been out five miles out... I hope there is searching further out.
I just wonder if anyone thought, if by chance, to look at every route possible from where the party took place to Maybee?

I personally observed a search party during the first few days that were searching along Mortar Creek Road at the railroad tracks.  According to Google maps that is 9.74 miles from the party site.  Her home falls within the 10 mile radius (barely, but it's under 10 'as the crow flies' miles.  Lake Erie is a mere 3.0 miles at the closest point so in this case a large part of that 10 mile radius is out in Lake Erie which takes it off the table as an option. 

The day this all hit the news I had the idea that she possibly tried walking home so I did drive a considerable part of the 'shortest and most direct route.  As I was looking I got to wondering what kind of 'reckoning abilities' she has...   some people can just stand somewhere and know which way is north or can just know which way home is...  other people weren't gifted with that ability so it might make the thought of even trying that a negative. 

Other variables...  what was she wearing for shoes?  How much had she had to drink? 

Under her circumstances I would have just started walking myself.  We also have no idea how to factor in the impact to her nose.  At this point she could be 10 miles from here reading all this stuff about Chelsea Bruck and not ever realize that it's her they're looking for!

So many variables :-\ :-\ :-\

The first day the horse search team was here they did start right at the location of the party and searched 'out' from there from what I could tell on the scanner and some of the photos that were posted later. 

And, in the event she did meet with foul play much of this searching needs to be more thorough.  If someone intentionally 'concealed' her as opposed to just dumping her then the searchers could have walked past her numerous times and still not seen anything :( :( :(

Deer season starts Saturday morning.  There will be a small army covering that entire area. 

We also have the leaves mostly off the trees and shrubs and a lot of the other brush has all thinned down.  Farmers have a lot more crops off too so one person can search a corn field that took 40 people to search before. 

The poster campaign has posters across the US and as Skittelroo's post shows, her info is in various data bases across the country too. 

Again, the best case scenario I can see is she bonked her nose and doesn't even know who she is!

I don't know if this has been discussed or not on here but there was an article published by the Monroe News, I wonder if this guy could be a person of interest since he might have still been out on bail at the time of Chelsea's disappearance.  Just a thought.

Ex-local officer arrested in human trafficking sting By Ray Kisonas Sunday, August 24, 2014, 06:00 a.m. Bryan Rose A police officer with connections to Monroe County is free on bond after he was arrested in Ohio during a hu­man trafficking sting operation. Bryan A. Rose, 28, who gave police a Flat Rock address, was taken into cus­tody with 10 others during a recent bust in Bowling Green, Ohio. Lt. Jamie Webb of the Wood County Sheriff’s Office said Mr. Rose was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of procuring prostitution. He was booked and released af­ter posting bond. He is scheduled to appear in Bowling Green Municipal Court.

I remember that article...   he was actually procuring the hooker for his girlfriend (who was also arrested) he claimed...   I'm pretty 'open' with what people do in their own lives but I even thought that one was just a little bit 'kinky' (for lack of a better word)...

Seems like one of the Toledo TV stations had his arrest photo posted!

How can public information about a potential crime cause him and his family any more harm if posted on a public forum?

I would call it brainstorming or thinking outside the box...   
One of the theories is she may have been abducted - so it's not out of the realm

Didn't a famous TV cop say ...  if you can't do the time - don't do the crime.

Brainstorming is one thing....... but unless you know the facts & whether he has been found innocent or guilty you shouldn't be posting a person's picture.  As I recall, isn't someone INNOCENT until proven guilty.  Mistakes have happened in the past and hurt innocent people, until a Judge or Jury makes the decision on this, people should keep their mouths shut.  Let's see if the news picks it up when he is found innocent!  Doubtful.

The Bruck family if I recall has asked to NOT post pictures or names.

You recall....wrong.  In this country today, a person is guilty until found innocent....

Far as your last comment, I don't know squat about that.

Under our system, a person is NOT innocent until proved guilty, but is PRESUMED innocent until proven guilty. Maybe semantic, but important, IMO.

You are correct Sammy they are presumed Innocent until proven guilty.   Unless of course you're sidecar then he must be the judge & the jury.

Sidecar - only small minded people think the way you do. I'll make sure to presume you are Guilty of being small minded until it's proven that you are innocent of that. Just remember karma hope you don't go through something & have to prove you're innocent - if I was small minded like you I'd be the first to help drag your name through the mud - since as you said you're guilty until proven innocent.   But because I don't feel that I have the right to play judge or jury I would take the high road and give the benefit of doubt and presume you were innocent.

How about you all do something useful like pass out flyers or help search instead of accusing or insinuating someone's involvement.

I hope this thread is one that can stay reasonable.   No calling names, arguing with each other, etc.   This is a very serious matter to some of us and, for what it is worth, particularly to me. 

I carry fliers to give out where there are none, I wear a Find Chelsea Bracelet, I put her info on every forum I visit, I donated, and more.  And I will continue to follow and help as much as I can.   I am always on the lookout for someone who might match the description of the sketch.   

So please .... if you are posting here, you must care in some way.   That is all some can do.   And I personally thank every one of you!

Skittelroo - I couldn't agree with you more that this is a very serious matter.  My heart goes out to the family & I have been passing flyers out wherever I go.

My point for posting was, if you have a thought or want someone to be checked out, DON'T post it here go to the Police.  Posting it here can hurt people who are Innocent and had NO INVOLVEMENT whatsoever!!! Why do that?? 

Prayers to the family.

Whatever.  You don't know me from squat and I don't know you.  I made a comment based solely on your post, nothing more.  I have no desire to transform this thread into a typical MT bashing but, at the same time I don't want this thread to turn into another NB thread either.  I'm not gonna make this my lifetime quest, I have other , more important things to direct my time and energy toward,.

Far as rules of engagement are concerned, I never have had any input from anyone stating what could be posted or discussed and that's the way it stands with me.  Your false premise about me being 'simple minded' is totally false and puts you in an adverserial postion with me.

I don't believe this is going to come out good (Bruck disappearance).  One, it's been too long and two, the circumstances surrounding the disappearance suggest foul play and three, I've never considered local LE to be adept at much other than being meter maids.....

So certainly the community is involved, it gives individuals a sense doing something constructive toward solving the mystery.  Myself, while I feel sympathy toward the family. I have no desire to be actively involved nor do I want to be, however, discussing aspects of and following progress of the case is within my realm as a poster on here and I'll comment accordingly.  That is the way it is.

If you don't like that, put me on ignore.  Until then, keep your unfounded comments to yourself or I'll consider them an open invitation to counter you when and if I want to.

I am so sorry that I started a riff by posting that article by MEN and then posting that person's picture. I was indeed speculating, and yes trying to brainstorm as to where she is and what happened to her. I feel like her disappearance hits home with me as I have a daughter that was invited to that party but did not go and it could've very well have been her taken that evening. I hope and pray every day that she is brought home safe and I'm sorry if I have offended anyone.

Reward boosted to $7,000 for Chelsea Bruck information

http://www.monroenews.com/news/2014/nov/15/reward-boosted-7000-chelsea-bruck-information/ (http://www.monroenews.com/news/2014/nov/15/reward-boosted-7000-chelsea-bruck-information/)

I was thinking last night about how Crime Stoppers Rewards work. I found this interesting article that was published, May 03, 2013.

How does Crime Stoppers determine reward money?

http://articles.kwch.com/2013-05-03/wsccs-com_39013649 (http://articles.kwch.com/2013-05-03/wsccs-com_39013649)

So it appears that any tips must be sent into Crime Stoppers to even be considered for any reward. If the tip is sent to the law enforcement agency and the crime is solved... Does that mean that the law enforcement agency can file to claim any rewards?
Unless it is in the Crime Stoppers policy that any law enforcement agency is exempt for claiming reward. Which I haven't been able to find out yet.
I didn't see anything posted on their website about it. http://www.crimestoppersusa.com/index.htm (http://www.crimestoppersusa.com/index.htm)

Shame that everyone was too high or drunk - per the headlines of the investigation (not my words) -

But then again anyone leaving a party about 3 am  is likely going to fit that category unless a designated driver - and it doesn't sound like there were many of those attending.

With no leads - and pictures being submitted with no feedback - It's sad to think that this person is either out of the State - or has a really bad case of amnesia.  (and most hospitals would have been notified - I hope)
Thinking of our local amnesiac - that is still unidentified.

Which is/was my premise for not allowing parties such as that to occur in the first place.  Was a permit pulled from the township for it, or is there even a local ordinance in place governing assemblies like that??

I know it's against the right of free speech and all that however, everyone too high or drunk and no designated drivers puts every innocent person on the road at that time in harms way from attendees driving under the influence.  If people cannot conduct themselves in an adult, civilized manner, then assemblies like that should be barred.  Plain and simple, no exceptions.

Stopped in for lunch that day with a few former co-workers.   
They were selling shirts and raffling off stuff and the 50-50,   

I'm not sure what the $$ is really going to do - but I guess it makes the community and those donating feel as if they are doing something... 

Wish we could get more update info from the official side of things - like did they ID the person in the picture...

Exactly (and not much else).  Better to give the dollars to the City Mission in Toledo, or the Salvation Army in Monroe to feed, provide warm clothing and shelter to needy people at least thats what I would do.

As far as I know The money is going toward the cost of the searches , food and water for all the volunteers ( and there is ALOT of volunteers)  , the cost of printing flyers ( tape, paper, ink, etc ) . They explained it on the Facebook group - Help Find Chelsea Bruck once but I couldn't find it and I scrolled back threw 3 weeks of posts . Some of the family members update on that group as to what is going on at the command post but everything else is directed to the police . I do know she has a lot of people who care about her . She is one of my nephews friends and he has gone on some of the searches and said its so upsetting. He said she is a very sweet and funny girl . I just hope they find her . ..... PS I don't care where the money goes cause for what the family is going through it really truly doesn't matter .

Thanks, Superspice.  Very nice post.

   I don't care if my donation went to support the family with their lost wages while they are searching for their daughter.  I gave because I care and would be grateful for any help in finding my child.  You are right, the donations are going to pay for costs toward the search and for the reward fund.

We were out at the mall last night...   my wife wanted to go check out Pat Catan's...   I went walking in the mall while she shopped. 

For all the news in the last few days about the 'purple ribbon' campaign in downtown Monroe I saw exactly one purple ribbon in the entire mall...   one of the waitresses at Olga's Kitchen was wearing a purple ribbon in her hair. 

Olga's had about four of the posters taped in their windows.  Perhaps corporate won't allow any more of a 'display' than that :-\ :-\ :-\

I'm not sure how long it will be  before the LE shrugs their shoulders and says - we just don't know...     or if they have actually found something like the Nevaeah case but can't really tell us.

OK, No it wasn't. After I posted it, I removed it. Later after submitting it to the police, I got an email from a detective to call him. I did, we talked. I directed him to where the pictures were and sent him one in particular that I was able to get from the site. I also edited it next to the sketch drawing. I haven't heard anything since. But they do have my contact number.
I don't really want to re-post the picture in the event it might be something of interest and we (the general public) are not to be told at this time.
I could probably PM it to people that I'm familiar with on here. Maybe some that appears close to the family might know something if they saw it.

I agree...   with as much time as  has passed  and as each day passes it becomes more likely that someone else is involved...

or her smashed nose somehow did cause her to forget who she is so 'no one' knows anything!

As many times as the area immediately surrounding the party has been searched it's highly unlikely she's still in that area. 

That only leaves her suffering amnesia or someone else 'knowing' something and the latter I'm thinking is much more likely!

More insight/information there than we've seen anywhere from the LE...

Silence on the pictures is what has me disturbed -

The problem is there seems to be no evidence of a crime - and missing person cases are much more difficult when they are "adults"...   
Hopefully she is able to reach out to family in the near future

Any planned update from the police about Chelsea Bruck? It's been almost a month.

At this time, the next press conference will be a Crimestoppers presentation on Monday.

So hopefully some tangible information besides the reward increase.

I haven't heard if they have any search parties out this weekend... 

the weather hasn't been the best for that but it also isn't going to get a lot better either.  Snow will cover up most any possible physical clues that might still be out there !  I'm thinking her 'poison' bottle...  her wig...  if there was any physical struggle with someone it would have been very likely that some of the leaves she had hand attached to her shirt might have fallen on the ground...  or even if she just ended up walking through some heavy brush! 

Any foot prints would have already been long gone.

Most of the corn down here is picked so I assume that is the case up there too.  The foliage is off most everything and there are some hunters out and about on a lot of the surrounding area. 

What they may want to do now is make one more sweep and focus around and under any large evergreens.

I am wondering if there was more than 4 security fellas?  I know all I have seen was them trying to identify 4 in the pics.  Also did anyone check on the security people from his birthday bash?  They may get to keep there shirts after the events.  If they wore the shirts who would know if they were or weren't security...the shirts from his birthday bash at least from video look the same.  Also it seems the band changed production companies recently too may not be anything but then again those would be people that may have seen Chelsea at one of the parties before.  "Bite your tongue" video there is a moment in the video that you can see she looks like somebody pissed her off.

I wonder if it would be possible for the state police sketch artist to do a new sketch without all the facial hair, shorter hair and no glasses?! 

If that person in fact had something to do with her disappearance I'd say there is an excellent chance he has gone to some effort to change his appearance or has gotten as far from the Monroe area as possible.  There's still a possibility that someone might recognize a 'pre facial hair' sketch of him.

If she did leave her phone/purse accidentally or on purpose why did it take 2 hours? to borrow someone elses phone (when she was holding one in the group picture) and ask the person whose vehicle she left it in to bring it back...then not go out herself and get it but someone else goes and gets it and then comes back to give it to her and poof she's gone.

I know we only read the tidbits that are on the news and never get the entire picture but I haven't even seen any timeline organized yet and she has been missing a month plus now very sad.

Also does anyone know what the anchor tattoo behind the ear meant to her?

Aside from all your negativity, and my hunch that you've tasted human flesh (considering you and Jeffery Dahmer probably crossed paths around Cleveland) I'd rather believe she's still alive.

There's nothing to indicate otherwise.

And your senseless speculating does nothing but hurt those that care.

But then caring is something you seem to know nothing about.

The way I see it, he's saying things that most people are probably thinking. Caring has nothing to do with it - everyone knows the chances of a person being found alive are less and less with each passing day. It's sad, but it's the truth.

I've been thinking about this photo since I first saw it in the paper (Dec 9th)...

I finally decided to post 'my' thoughts just to see if I'm all alone on this?

(http://monroenews.media.clients.ellingtoncms.com/img/photos/2014/12/09/10690347_10154835743875109_4057559394024000126_n_t670.jpg?b3f6a5d7692ccc373d56e40cf708e3fa67d9af9d)

If someone is not familiar with the article (linked below) the photo was taken in 2011 at Pete's Garage in Monroe.  That is Chelsea on the left and then Julia Niswender adjacent to her.  The other two girls are their respective sisters.

Chelsea has been missing for nearly two months now from the Newport area.  Julia was the victim of an unsolved homicide in Ypsilanti two years ago in December of 2012!

Article:  http://www.monroenews.com/news/2014/dec/10/three-families-gather-event-wednesday/?top-stories (http://www.monroenews.com/news/2014/dec/10/three-families-gather-event-wednesday/?top-stories)

I find it a bit haunting to think of those two young gals being that close at that time in their life and how things have 'played out' since the photo was taken.

I wonder who else was at that party? 

I'm usually not one to get too far into conspiracy theories but in this case I wonder if maybe authorities solve one crime and they may have the answers to the other?

Just 'haunting' to me to think what the odds are of those two gals being there like that and their current circumstances >:( >:( >:(

Timing is everything in that game nails!

Early on probably LE and most everyone else figured it was a pretty good chance she just wandered away from the party and had some kind of an accident.  With the time that has passed since then we've seen the farmers harvest the crops...   the hunters have now had many weeks to be out walking in the woods and no snow cover to hide a thing.  The searchers have been over the core area time and time and time again. 

Each day that passes without her being found I would say it becomes more likely someone else knew about her leaving...   and every time the reward goes up they're being tempted to talk 'more and more'!!!

Will be interesting to see if one finally steps up how many hours it will be before others jump in 'to get their share' >:( >:( >:(

Hummm.......I don't know about that BRD (increasing the reward to get some to talk).  I'd say that may be the case if maybe only two or three people saw her last, but at a large party I would think that the number of people who did see her that one or two good-hearted youngsters would have come forward by now.

To your point though, the immediate area has been thoroughly gone over so that would lead me to think that she left with someone.  Now, how many people would have seen that, and under the cover of night, hard telling I suppose.

Chelsea's disappearance did make the top news story for the MonroeNews last year...

I guess her safe return might make it as the top story for this year!!!

Absolutely. When she attempted to climb in the window of that home she thought the party was at...and the occupants thought she was breaking in...the gun nuts would have felt justified in blowing her away. That's how little the right values human lives.

I think it was on NBC24 Toledo last night they had quite an article.  They showed them working on brochures they were getting ready to hand out.  Seems like the figure was 100K of them.  That has to be some of the cost involved. 

Saw in the paper one night this week that Raisinville Elementary school has been doing a couple of different projects and that Chelsea's Mom had been to the school to speak to some of the students.

This is the weekend one of Chelsea's sisters is getting married. 

I'll see if I can find the video from the newscast.

Really not any news one way or the other for Chelsea or her family.  The older sister did have her wedding this past weekend.

On the front page of the paper today is an article that two different 'tipsters' have been charged with giving false evidence in the case.  Hopefully the MonroeNews staff will choose that article to put online in the next day or two.

I feel bad for the family that the two people had made up the stories.  It does make one wonder though if either scenario could have actually happened in some way.  Did she have an exboyfriend who was troubled enough to go to the extremes?  I remember in the one interview the young girl said she noticed Chelsea seemed upset but when she went back to talk to her, she was gone.  Does anyone know what upset her?  Apparently not- they were too high or too drunk. 
My prayers go out to the Bruck family and to Chelseas' friends.

I've been thinking about this photo since I first saw it in the paper (Dec 9th)...

I finally decided to post 'my' thoughts just to see if I'm all alone on this?

([url]http://monroenews.media.clients.ellingtoncms.com/img/photos/2014/12/09/10690347_10154835743875109_4057559394024000126_n_t670.jpg?b3f6a5d7692ccc373d56e40cf708e3fa67d9af9d[/url])

If someone is not familiar with the article (linked below) the photo was taken in 2011 at Pete's Garage in Monroe.  That is Chelsea on the left and then Julia Niswender adjacent to her.  The other two girls are their respective sisters.

Chelsea has been missing for nearly two months now from the Newport area.  Julia was the victim of an unsolved homicide in Ypsilanti two years ago in December of 2012!

Article:  [url]http://www.monroenews.com/news/2014/dec/10/three-families-gather-event-wednesday/?top-stories[/url] ([url]http://www.monroenews.com/news/2014/dec/10/three-families-gather-event-wednesday/?top-stories[/url])

I find it a bit haunting to think of those two young gals being that close at that time in their life and how things have 'played out' since the photo was taken.

I wonder who else was at that party? 

I'm usually not one to get too far into conspiracy theories but in this case I wonder if maybe authorities solve one crime and they may have the answers to the other?

Just 'haunting' to me to think what the odds are of those two gals being there like that and their current circumstances >:( >:( >:(


This is all 'circumstantial' but has to make you wonder how well he may know Chelsea?

Until I hear different I'm going to go with Grandma's intuition over the sister's intuition...   

I was hoping we'd hear something from his wife by now sounds like she's just going to keep quiet...

at least for the near time being!

And...    Grandma says he's a manipulator :o :o :o

I'd guess you're probably right that he would have been able to make use of some of his 'connections' to get Chelsea out of the area.

Hopefully LE is on her trail and that's why we haven't heard anything even since Turnquist's arrest!

Odd that the arrests happen back to back for sure.  I can't help wondering about Nevaeh.  Not necessarily through a school connection but maybe a friend of a friend or something.  I know that's a long stretch too but no one has ever been charged for her kidnapping and murder.  Can't even keep track of all of the persons of interest in her case since mipsor or dru sjodin don't have them all listed anymore.

BERLIN TWP. (WWJ) - An organized search involving several law enforcement agencies is underway along the Lake Erie shoreline in Monroe County. And it might be connected to the search for a woman who disappeared from a party last Halloween.

WWJ uncovered exclusive information that the search party was gathering Thursday morning near the Pointe Mouillee State Game Area, off of Jefferson Avenue and Sigler Road in Berlin Charter Township — not far from the last place where 22-year-old Chelsea Bruck was seen alive.

Authorities have not yet confirmed what crews are searching for and officials remain tight-lipped. However, rumors at the scene indicate that searchers are looking for a person who has been missing for a long time.

Why wouldn't she? One has to have hope...and other than just being missing...nothing warrants giving up hope.

There are plenty of stories of missing people turning up.

Makes me wonder why some people are so eager to give up...and hoping others will as well.

Almost like someone has her locked away and is hoping all the attention would subside.

Its interesting that Malone would disclose that he believes the murder was done at the site the body was found, and the person was familiar with the site.

Makes me wonder if he is disclosing the facts, or trying to put the real killer at ease.

I've been working outside for the last few days so I was away from most of the news...   I do have a friend that was sending me the updates to my phone as they happened.

My condolences to the entire Bruck family...

and especially to Chelsea's Mom...  There is always such a strong bond (love) between a mother and a daughter...  watching her Mom over the last 6 months (almost to the day) I don't believe I have ever seen anyone manage to stay so focused and work so hard on 'searching' for a missing loved one. 

I saw an article within the last week or two that said she had just gone back to work. 

Hoping she can maintain that 'strength' over all the challenges that are still ahead of her and her family!

Why were the leaves found 10 miles to the NE of there and who gave LE the tip?

Both good questions...   the railroad tracks adjacent to where she was found run within just a few hundred yards of where her costume was found.  Did they (her and her killer) possibly travel down the tracks.  Those same tracks run right into Maybee and are probably within sight of her house...   could she have been going 'home'?

The news sources seem to have the distances exagerated...   using Google map distance I measure the distance from the party to where she was found at just under 8 miles...   on the news I've heard 10, 12 and 15...   not sure how they're measuring but it sure isn't 'as the crow flies'...   maybe driving miles ??? ??? ???

Tiny, Google map measure calculates the distance from where she was found back to where they found her clothes at 5.3 miles...   certainly not a distance that would beyond walking.  Walking in the woods I walk at about 35 minutes to a mile...  on the road or a paved trail (or the mall) I can do a mile in about 20 minutes so I think it's entirely possible someone could have walked that distance in maybe 3 hours or so. 

That stretch of tracks doesn't have a dip or a curve or a turn...   straight as arrow from Flat Rock to Maybee!


I also want to comment on the article by Ray Kisonas in the MonroeNews yesterday...

I guess the 'headline' more than the article...

the headline reads "Is Mystery Over?"...

No Ray...   a very small part of the 'Mystery' has been solved but now there are even more questions than before...   hopefully it is just a matter of time until all the questions are answered :( :( :(

I guess the 'headline' more than the article...

the headline reads "Is Mystery Over?"...

No Ray...   a very small part of the 'Mystery' has been solved but now there are even more questions than before...   hopefully it is just a matter of time until all the questions are answered :( :( :(


I agree, that the mystery has just begun. I also believe that the person responsible for her death, is someone around that area.


BRD....Nice to see you back. Hope you are well.

I am sure the girls knew each other, but actually Chelsea's sister (Kassie) is friends with Julia's sister (Jennifer)

---
It also was revealed in recent months that Jennifer is best friends with Kassie Bruck, the older sister of Chelsea Bruck,

Thanks.

I found it hard to believe that there could be a connection - the chances of both being murdered?

That has to be astronomical. 

That is an awful lot of grief in a small circle.

I can't imagine that.

Both good questions...   the railroad tracks adjacent to where she was found run within just a few hundred yards of where her costume was found.  Did they (her and her killer) possibly travel down the tracks.  Those same tracks run right into Maybee and are probably within sight of her house...   could she have been going 'home'?

The news sources seem to have the distances exagerated...   using Google map distance I measure the distance from the party to where she was found at just under 8 miles...   on the news I've heard 10, 12 and 15...   not sure how they're measuring but it sure isn't 'as the crow flies'...   maybe driving miles ??? ??? ???

Tiny, Google map measure calculates the distance from where she was found back to where they found her clothes at 5.3 miles...   certainly not a distance that would beyond walking.  Walking in the woods I walk at about 35 minutes to a mile...  on the road or a paved trail (or the mall) I can do a mile in about 20 minutes so I think it's entirely possible someone could have walked that distance in maybe 3 hours or so.

And here's even one more 'interesting' thought on those tracks...

they run from Flat Rock to Carleton to Maybee as mentioned above...  but then they continue to the SouthWest and cross the River Raising east of Dundee...

and the point they cross the river is within sight of where Nevaeh was found :o :o :o

Can anyone calculate the odds of all that?

For the record...   I was home where I frequently am on Saturday night...  my wife usually has to work on Sunday morning at 5:30 so we spend a lot of Saturday nights at home!!!

Our youngest daughter  (25) was actually at the party but had left by 11...   she mumbled something about "too much tequila" ;D ;D ;D  She doesn't remember seeing Chelsea at all that night but I'm not sure she would have remembered seeing her own shadow either ;) ;) ;)

Our oldest daughter pointed out another 'body and murder' link to that same stretch of tracks.  A UPS driver found a body on Newburgh road at the rail crossing just northeast from the crossing on Briar Hill where Chelsea was found.  LE did end up solving that one though and everyone involved was from out of the area...   just a place the boyfriend found 'convenient' to get rid of his ex girl friend...   that's the one where he dumped the body while her kids were in the back seat of the car I think. 

There is a memorial 'cross' there...   railroad property so probably no one gets upset.  Does't look like it's been tended to lately either.

We did drive on around to the crossing at Briar Hill...   the 'memorial' doesn't look like it's grown any since the first day.  The property is well posted and there is a cable across the drive along with the extra 'keep out' sign in the middle of the drive.  It was a gorgeous Saturday for someone wanting to build their new home to be out working on it...   

not a sign of activity anywere :( :( :(

This answers a question I saw (and asked myself) a few times over the last 6 months...

Quote
Leannda Bruck, her mother, has the message written on the windows of her car. It’s because her daughter honored brother Nathan, who was in the Navy, with an anchor tattoo.


I am absolutely overwhelmed by the strength Chelsea's Mom has displayed through all of this.

I would thinki that a careful examination of the corpse by pathology should yield some evidence in the way of DNA at least.  I'm reasonably sure whoever dumped the body there assumed she would never be found before natural decay reduced the corpse to dirt.

The chilling part is the murderer walks among us right now.  Almost certainly someone local who would have knowledge of the location and access.

I'd like to see the case solved and the perp incarcerated.

The 'front page' view of the MonroeNews for today shows an obituary for Chelsea although there is nothing 'online' yet.

Saw this on Twitter from 13ABC in Toledo:

Quote
Visitation for Chelsea Bruck is set for 3 to 8 p.m. on Thursday at the Rupp Funeral Home in Monroe, Michigan. Friday calling hours are 1 to 8 p.m.

A Mass celebrating her life will be held Saturday morning, June 13th at St. Joseph Church in Maybee, Michigan.

I would be happy to volunteer to go over any evidence or reports of any case. As long as members of the family approve. As well as the investigating LE to look over and see if I might find anything that might have been missed. It seems I can do it with Monroe's lost history... I figure, if I can, to put it to good use and at least maybe, find something that might help or give my thoughts of possibilities.

As much as I want to say local LE is inept, there were Feds involved and obviously missed things in this case, the Nevaeh case, and the lawyer whose car was bomb rigged.

Hell, I'm going to say it......local LE is inept, look at our drug problem on top of the major cases that go unresolved here.

We're rapidly approaching the one year mark since Chelsea's disappearance and what we now know was her subsequent murder...

I haven't heard or seen or read anything in the news for months :( :( :(

I still see the occasional purple ribbon displayed around Monroe.  I always wonder if they're in memory of Chelsea of if they're for some other purpose.

It would certainly be nice to have some kind of a follow up from local LE as to what they are or are not doing regarding

Nevaeh...

the car bombing on Elm Ave...

and now Chelsea.

Those are the three big 'unsolved' news events I can think of during the 'life' of MonroeTalks.

I had not heard that any info was being withheld at the request of the family.  It's fairly typical for LE to withhold details such as the cause of death so that they can use the info later if they are questioning a suspect.  If the suspect has details that have never been released then that person is more likely to be the perp!

I still feel (actually hope I'm wrong though) there is a link between Chelsea's murderer and Julia Niswender's killer.

This photo is damning...    these were not 'bad' girls from a big city (where this type of crime is more prevalent)...

These were a couple of local gals :-\ :-\ :-\  To have two of the four die at the hands of a murderer in such a short time is just unfathomable to me.

Interesting Blog I just found... 

and before anyone questions it "NO, it's not mine!"...

I literally found while Googling for a link to the photo of the two girls above.

The blogger feels there may be a possible link between the murders of Julia, Chelsea Bruck and Chelsea Small. 

http://thecontextofthings.com/2014/12/17/chelsea-bruck-julia-niswender-and-chelsea-small/ (http://thecontextofthings.com/2014/12/17/chelsea-bruck-julia-niswender-and-chelsea-small/)

If you don't recall the Chelsea Small case here's a summary.  I have read somewhere that she had some ties to the South Rockwood and Newport area but I don't recall exactly what they were right now. 

http://www.wxyz.com/news/one-year-later-who-killed-chelsea-small-at-a-taylor-cash-advance-store (http://www.wxyz.com/news/one-year-later-who-killed-chelsea-small-at-a-taylor-cash-advance-store)


We know Julia was drowned and we know Chelsea Small was shot numerous times (investigators feel the number of shots indicates someone who knew her and was mad at her for something). 

We still don't know how Chelsea Bruck was killed.  I suppose she could have been drowned or shot which might help tie her case to either of the others but most likely not both.

Find out where the investigation is one year later, and hear from Leannda and Matt Bruck, as they share their emotional story with 13abc's McKenzie Kuehnlein on Action News at 6:00 PM Monday.


Here's the video from 13ABC last night:

Does anyone recognize the location from about 2:50 where McKenzie is doing a 'walking' interview with the investigator?

I couldn't help but notice she was walking in heels!  I wonder if they learn that in journalism school?

So the next phase will be how long does it take our crime lab - and is there any useful evidence... 
From past cases and experience its sad that that is the only hope to solve, as the success rate is not looking good for major cases... in recent years.

Well the culprit or culprits certainly have the time element on their side at this point.  Lots of the typical evidence had to have either disappeared completely or degraded to quite an extent.  It does seem like sometimes the crime lab can come up with some clinchers though.  Hopefully that is the eventual situation here.

Post by: BigRedDog on October 28, 2015, 09:11:46 AM
One thing I noticed in the WTVG interview with Chelsea's parents.  Her Mom says "her ride"...  do they actually not know who she was riding with?  I've caught in other news articles where they just say 'her ride' left her there at the party.

I believe they need to try to determine exactly who she was with on the way to the party.  Seems like I remember early on that she had either given her cell phone to someone she shared the ride with or maybe she had just left it in the car.  Only thing I can think is there was no place in her costume for her phone.  You almost have to pry the phone out of the fingers of the young gals I know.

Anyway, my youngest daughter (a few years older than Chelsea) has had a theory on this whole 'situation' since day one. 

Her theory: 

Chelsea's ride share partners could have been from one to several both female and/or male.  It seems the focus has been (and logically so) on who she left with but I've never heard precisely who she arrived with.  Maybe that info has intentionally been kept out of the news for whatever reason...  anyway, maybe at some point (before they got there, during the party or after they all left together) someone decided to do some kind of a recreational drug.  It's possible Chelsea was not a willing participant but they still managed to slip something in her drink which we have photos of her carrying. 

Somehow Chelsea overdosed.  With as many people as there were at the party (and especially with the condition they were in) that could have easily never been noticed. 

Maybe they drove to little old deserted building in Flat Rock.  Somehow enough of Chelsea's costume got left behind for it to be found months later. 

Once the other or others realized that Chelsea was in trouble they may have been afraid to take her to a hospital.  That's a big part of the 'unknown' in this theory too.  After they realized she was not breathing they decided to 'dump' her body.  I don't know the exact distances from where her body was found from the obvious 'driveway' going back in there but it appears someone was able to drive pretty close to where she was 'dumped'.  Even just one gal Chelsea's size could have dragged her off the drive a short distance and left. 

I agree it was someone that really knew the area pretty well but that could be some 'cumulative' knowledge of a few of her 'friends'. 

Anyway, the perp or perps concocted the story of how Chelsea was missing her phone. 

If she left earlier and with a large group that could also explain how she managed to leave without being seen.  The drawing of the male 'suspect' has been widely circulated (nationally) and he still hasn't been located...   maybe he never existed except in someone's mind :-\ :-\ :-\

I'm guessing the authorities know more of what happened than what they're letting out so maybe none of the above could have happened. 

Just going back to Chelsea's Mom's comment about 'her ride'...   brought up my daughter's theory again :-\ :-\ :-\

The drug overdose theory sounds plausible. 

Has a cause of death ever been determined?

I don't recall ever hearing it if it has.  I assume that is part of the testing they're waiting for.  No idea how easy it would be to get that kind of info out of tissue that has been out in the elements for that long though.

Ya mean we have an actual 'crime lab'?  What/where is it?  Someone's garage or az spare unused room in a non-descript building somewhere, staffed by ghosts on incompettent laypeople....  Your kidding of course????


I'm assuming they mean the Michigan State Police Crime Lab.

Looks like the closest one is at Northville.

I suppose they may have also decided to use a private or different lab too.

Or maybe she was forcefully drugged and later just dumped?!

Probably so...

I know it's a long shot this guy might have traveled this far but also a long shot he had to be in the area for something too.  He would have probably been a little older than most of the party goers that night but if he was in a costume might have been easy to conceal his age too.

Willis is not a real common name but also not an uncommon name...

quite a few of them around Monroe.  Are any related?

Quite often a criminal will go to a property they are familiar with to dispose of a body.  The guy is 46 so he could have been around the property in Carleton by the tracks where Chelsea was found a lot of years ago :-\ :-\ :-\

Google maps says it's a 3 hour drive from Monroe to Muskegon...   

all interstate highway so most likely less time if he was flying!

This past week they have been investigating a disappearance of a gal several years ago they feel he may have been involved with.  They are looking for her body near the suspect's home along an old railroad grade...   Chelsea was found along a railroad grade :-\ :-\ :-\

I've been following this Jeffrey Willis case (multiple victims actually) from over in Muskegon and still can't help wondering if he might have decided to make a 'road trip' to Monroe the night of the party on Post Road.  It's a 3 hour drive according to Google maps...   and that's driving the speed limit!

One interesting tidbit I found is that the family that owns the home just across the field from where Chelsea was last seen at the party is owned by a family named Willis.  Before someone says I'm making accusations I certainly am not.  If there is any family tie perhaps he had visited there enough to be familiar with the area.  Their house sits a half mile back off the road (112 acre parcel) so they might not have any idea what was going on up closer to the party!

I know this is all a lot of 'what if' scenario but somewhere there is an answer!

I'd guess at this point they're just waiting for DNA matching.

He's in jail and I doubt he'll be going anywhere for a long time already but I would think it would help Chelsea's family and friends to get some closure to know just 'who' to direct their feelings toward. 

I'll bet this guy is getting a lot of attention from other LE agencies around the country too!

Arrest made in Chelsea Bruck murder



Investigators have arrested a man in connection with the Chelsea Bruck murder almost two years after the Maybee woman disappeared from a large Halloween party.

The suspect, a 27-year-old man from Newport, is being held in the Monroe County jail after the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office took him into custody this afternoon from his residence in the Frenchtown Villa Mobile Home Park.

“We got him,” said Maj. Jeff Kemp.

A major break in the case occurred Thursday when the Michigan State Police linked evidence from crime scenes to the suspect. During an interview with investigators, the man admitted he was involved with Miss Bruck’s murder.

Kudo's to Dale Malone and his department for his persistence.  I'm sure there was outside help, MSP crime lab and probably the FBI as well.  The case isn't 'solved' yet, still has to go through the court system but I'm impressed that finally, an arrest was made.

I have never heard someone request no bond before!  He interruoted his representative, who was citing reasons why bond should be set, to say he did not want bond, would not even ask for it.

I saw in one news article that Clay had recently served a 6 month jail sentence. 

Maybe he's planning on pleading guilty anyway so he figures he might as well get a head start on the sentence. 

At least when he's in there no one is hounding him for missing his child support payments. 

And he may realize that he might not be exactly the most popular guy to be walking the streets of Monroe at this time so it might be safer on the inside.

Hard to second guess someone who obviously has made some poor decisions!

I guess he is...
Read in MEN today he has a long criminal record.
He was arrested because he and another tried to steal a backpack off a girl.  Since a new law and it was a felony they took his DNA. It matched what they found on Chelsea's Halloween costume

I thought the same thing then I got to thinking. He probably thought he would be a lot safer in police custody then out on the street. People expressed a lot of anger in this case so some people might take the law into their own hands.

I'm thinking "IF" they ever solved the Neveah case, the person or persons involved would probably request the same thing.

I wonder what his most recent gal friend thinks of this news?

Sounds like he had his boots under her bed at the same time be broke into the apartment and raped the other gal >:( >:( >:(

It's going to make it pretty tough now to use a defense that the sex with Chelsea was consensual and just got a little rough!!! 

Yes, I won't be surprised if they get more than one additional hit on his DNA!

Think I remember reading something about underwear.  What totally amazes me is he was living (sleeping) with the gal at the trailer park.  Reminds me of the Alfred Hitchcock thriller at the Bates Motel....  It seems sexual predators have many faces.

I read the comments after the article.  I especially like the one....  "75 cents of alternating current would take care of the a'hole"....

It would.  So would general population at Ionia or Kinross or even Milan

What a turd.

Yes, I remember reading just one report about LE finding women's underwear in the suspect's backpack.  They were not real clear as to exactly what it was or 'who' (maybe they know specifically) it belonged to.

The downside to the word underwear is it could be one piece or 50 pieces and the word doesn't get specific!

I actually don't think his argument of 'accident' was going to go very far anyway. 

I suppose if we knew how many pieces of underwear were in that backpack we might have an idea of how many additions victims there are out there.

Imagine this most recent local gal that he attacked now knowing that he had killed someone previously :o :o :o

How about the girl(s) he was living / sleeping with.  The one said she loved him...  Love is blind and stupid too.

Somehow, I don't think he was a crossdresser so I have to assume underwear as in victim's panties.

Here is a guy who really needs to be eliminated from the gene pool.

Wonder how Worley is doing.  Nothing in the Blade lately....

So maybe back that early in June is before he had met the young gal that 'fell in love' with him!!!

WXYZ 'live streamed' the hearing.  I had a chance to watch part of it in the afternoon.  When it was over the prosecutor moved to raise the charges to 'open murder' (hope I got that right) so the jury has the opportunity to come back with a verdict of 'first degree' or a couple of lower levels.

WDIV has a pretty good story with what all 15 witnesses had to say.

What we need in this country is punishment that fits the crime, not a trial at the taxpayers expense.  If we had a policy of punishment equals the crime committed in this country, violent crime, murder wold drop to basically zero.

He needs 'violent sex with a baseball bat ending with death.  Real simple.  Lots cheaper, closure for the family.  If they want a volunteer for the ball bat handler, I volunteer.  I could do a 'line drive' on that scumbag's head in a minute.  Actually, a good solid swing in the crotch first (for effect) followed by a line drive to the head.

After @ 3 hrs of deliberations, Clay was found guilty of felony murder (not Murder 1, but holds the same punishments depending on the degree)

A special category exists for murders committed in the perpetration of other crimes. If you commit murder in the perpetration or attempted perpetration any of the following you will face the same penalty as first-degree murder:


I'd be more than happy to 'right his wrongs' with a Louisville Slugger.  One between his legs first and one in the back of the head.

I'm surprised it took 3 hours, I was in Mav's court on time..

M1 don't play.  Not premed.  Do I think his intent was to murder?  Not sure.  I think one thing led to another and he killed her.  The damming part is the way he hid the body and then denied it before the DNA was brought to bear.  I read the autopsy.  It was gruesome.  He's a henious scumbag. 

So maybe a 'vacation' in the joint isn't all bad.  Inmates don't like people that do those crimes.  he may wish he was dead.

The charge was actually a version of murder 1 so he gets an automatic life sentence and an appeal. He has been in a single cell since his arrest and now will go into general population. He will definitely get his *** kicked. They probably didn't want him to show up in court with his arm in a sling and his face bruised but now who the hell cares.

While it sounds like I'm playing God, I'm not trying to but, my opinion is life is too god for him, even being a biatch for some inmate...  Was a very henious crime and now we are on the hook for his prison welfare for the next 60 years, unless he gets terminated in the joint, which he might.

Said he was 'scared' of being in jail...  Just wait baby, you ain't seen nuth'in yet...

Not a peep out of his family.

From what  I have learned, he was kicked out by his mom when he was quite young (possibly by age 17, I don't know the exact age).  There was only one "possible" family member at the trial for the first day, and no one after that.  No friends spoke up in his favor to say he was a "nice guy".   No one to take the stand other than himself and a defense medical examiner (Daniel Spitz), who did not help him (in my opinion). 

There is a copy of his police interrogation at the following site.  he started out denying he ever met Chelsea before, then started cracking toward the end.   it is quite long, but worth the read.   http://www.clickondetroit.com/news/chelsea-bruck-murder-case-man-denies-seeing-her-then-says-he-accidentally-killed-her-during-sex (http://www.clickondetroit.com/news/chelsea-bruck-murder-case-man-denies-seeing-her-then-says-he-accidentally-killed-her-during-sex)

With scumbags like that we need to toss the Miranda Act and place his hands on a table and bust his fingers with a hammer, one at a time.  Thats the way to get to the truth real fast.

I suspect Mav is right, he's gonna get his butt kicked now.  General population is gonna be hell.

Probably send him to Kinross or Marquette.  He's enjoy the winters up there.

The 2nd day of trial on Clay's rape charges from a different victim.  Is this the incident that they ended up taking the DNA from him that busted him on the Chelsea Bruck case or was that even something different?

Correct, he stole a backpack with equipment (camera?) and was busted.   It was under the new Michigan laws his DNA was taken and he was match to the DNA collected in the Bruck case.

Thats the one where they got the DNA that nailed him  Nice picture in the MN of Clay and his mouthpiece.  He needs to go away...forever.  Too bad we get to pay for it.  I would prefer the death penalty, the rent duration would be shorter.

I saw last night that the jury was deadlocked so the judge sent them home for the night and told them to come back this morning and deliberate some more.

Just saw on Twitter that the jury found Clay guilty of a sex charge (maybe less than what he was originally charged with) but not guilty of home invasion.  No details yet although I'm sure there will be plenty of details soon!

Home invasion was a little shaky.  They (Clay and some other girls were there and partying and left) and Clay supposedly came back and 'raped' the victim.  I find the home invasion to be very shaky.

Seems to me that Clay did nothing constructive except do drugs, smoke dope, partied and screwed whatever was handy.  I'm sure he will be a model citizen in the slammer.  It also is apparent to me that we have numerous .model citizens' living in and around Monroe.

Hope he enjoys his lifetime vacation on our dime.  We can all hope he hangs himself with a bedsheet while in the slammer.

NBC's Dateline is going to feature a story on the investigation by around Halloween of this year.

http://nbc24.com/news/local/chelsea-bruck-story-to-air-on-dateline (http://nbc24.com/news/local/chelsea-bruck-story-to-air-on-dateline)

On a side note...

does anyone have a positive (or even a guess) as to the location where they were filming this?

Appears to be inside a beer / wine distributor (or someone that keeps a lot of kegs and barrels around).  Since they were interviewing members of the Sheriff's Department it doesn't seem like they'd be that far away.  NBC studios around here are either WNWO in Toledo or WDIV in Detroit...   but I wouldn't think either of those studios would have the kegs and barrels.

Metal containers are the 1/2 barrel kegs for beer (15.5 gal).


Wooden barrels are the Maumee Bay Brewing Bourbon Barrel Aged Total Eclipse Breakfast Stout:

Why would you store beer in a metal (steel) drum?  Would not the steel impart a taste to it?

Sanitary grade stainless steel is used in beer kegs.  I am not sure if there is an addition coating on the interior surface like they are doing in some craft beer cans these days.

It's stainless and draft beer has been in stainless for a lot of years.

My Dad never liked beer in aluminum cans because he could taste the aluminum as opposed to in a glass bottle.

Sanitary grade stainless steel is used in beer kegs.  I am not sure if there is an addition coating on the interior surface like they are doing in some craft beer cans these days.

It's been probably just about 50 years ago right now but I helped a friend build a water pumper dune buggy and he installed a beer keg mounted high and proud for the fuel thank.  His Dad was a welder and Dow had some pretty good equipment so managed to make it look very professionally done...   I guess it actually was 8) 8) 8)

We didn't notice any kind of liner inside the tank and never had any problem with plugging fuel lines so I'm thinking way back then there was no liner.  Today there may be though.  I did some googling on my phone while I was waiting for my wife again this morning and didn't find anything that says one way or the other.  Lots and lots comes up on the potential hazards on the linings in the cans though!

I just learned something about tap beer the other day.  I met a guy that has a business cleaning beer taps and lines at bars and restaurants.  Business is picking up dramatically.  He runs a camera thru the system and is able to show owner/mgr all the crud and bacteria build up in the system..
Apparently people aren't getting sick from tap beer. It's what's delivering it

It was interesting to watch, what I did get to see. I will try to see if Dateline has the show posted, to watch it again. I fell asleep and missed the last half hour of the show, though.  :-\

It's not like you didn't know the 'plot' ;) ;) ;)


I was watching it and suddenly thought about Chelsea's Mom...   wondered if this was something she would be watching!  Does anyone know how she's doing? 

It was interesting to see the interviews with the various people involved and be able to put a face to them.  I do remember both of the gals that worked at Olga's with Chelsea. 

It was a surprise to see the interviews conducted at Veterans' Park and to see so many of the other familiar sights around the area. 

Interesting program overall but I sincerely hope we don't see another one centered around here for a long, long time!!!

Looks like they regularly put the full show on YouTube...

minus the commercials even.  Looks like the edited 'shows' typically run from 39-41 minutes.  One of my 'gripes' about Dateline in particular is the heavy advertising ratio!

The trailer for last night's show was just posted to YouTube and it already has over 1000 views.  I'm guessing they'll have the full video there in a few days.
