Rich & Danielle and the family are on my mind and in my prayers daily.

I just watched the case on Disappeared. Here in my country it happened a similar case but the ex husband was arrested being the person who hired the hit men. He did not want to give his ex the children’s custody and was not satisfied with his ex having a new relationship. I don’t think police there or the FBI did a good job investigating because they let time pass and the case (and the leads) went cold. First thing they should have done was to REALLY investigate Danielle’s ex husband. It doesn’t matter if he was in a family party and had an alibi – that may not have prevented him to plot a crime. Also… he moved states! (That screams GUILTY.) That might have been something that he wanted before – to take his son away to North Carolina, while he was still a baby, but Danielle would never allow it back then… There are so many motives that put her ex husband and the ONLY person who might have wanted they both gone. Did the police find out why did her ex called Richard several times? Did they find out if he threatened Richard in anyway during those several calls that they made for each other?! Maybe that’s why she asked for time in the 5 previous weeks before their last date. Maybe her ex was the real reason, maybe she was trying to protect Richard… Why her ex did not take a polygraph test?!?! It is so disturbing that the police focused on the wrong direction. I am very sorry for both families! I will put them both in my prayers.

I am based in UK i saw this hear breaking documentary about the couple Richard & Danielle on US crime channels on cable here in London It must be so distressing for his family and friends that 16 years has passed now , they are no closer to the truth what happened to them. We all know that “FOUL PLAY” was involved in there disappearance, What i don’t understand year 2005 after visiting a bar on Philadelphia’s South Street. having a good night out with friends after leaving the bar both of them vanish in thin air AND NO ONE SAW NOTHING !!!! This happened in the millennium years not the 1980’s , South Street is full of restaurants, clubs you name it full of entertainment. You ae telling me no cameras what so ever of any establishment on that street pick up any image of the couple heading towards Richard’s car. We don’t know if they took a left or a right or cross the street ??? . It sounds so weird. I hope the family and friends get the answers they deserve what happened to beloved Richard,
