    Remember when all these whiny little bitches blamed us for Chad Reidy’s suicide and said we should pay for his funeral for pointing out that some of his behavior after his wife Jo Ringer disappeared was odd? Well, they were wrong, and we were right:

    Again.

    Yup, Jo Ringer’s family and friends went through her Facebook page and gave Masslive a whole bunch of INSANE information that basically proves that he killed himself because the cops were about to arrest him for her murder. Here’s some interesting tidbits from the Masslive article:

    • Jo Ringer said in a Facebook message to a friend right before she disappeared in regard to her marriage to Chad Reidy that “I’m not safe, I’m trying to get out. But it’s going to take a little time.”

    Screen Shot 2017-04-15 at 12.06.45 AM

    • According to Ringer’s daughter, 19-year-old Savanah, her mother told friends prior to her disappearance, “If anything happens to me, Chad did it.”
    • The State Police had zeroed in on Chad Reidy as the primary suspect, and two days before he killed himself he was heavily interrogated by the cops.
    • Chad Reidy admitted to the cops that he was guilty of domestic violence against his wife in the past.
    • Ten days after she married Chad Reidy, Jo Ringer ran away from him to a friend’s house and showed up with hand marks on her neck and swollen eyes, both of which can be confirmed by pictures.
    • Jo Ringer told the friend that Chad had put a gun to her head and threatened to kill her.
    • Her daughter went through her Facebook messages and discovered that Reidy was “jealous, manipulative and outright abusive at times.”
    • Chad Reidy reported her missing 48 hours AFTER she went missing, and did not call her family to see if they knew where she was before he called the cops.
    • Chad Reidy was spotted near where his wife’s car was found in Easthampton, on the day she disappeared. This is confirmed by a woman whose cell phone he borrowed, telling her a story about his wife’s car breaking down.
    • Cops have been searching the wooded area and nearby pond where his wife’s car was found.
    • The family members came forward to Masslive with this information when they saw Chad Reidy’s family was raising money for his funeral.

    We didn’t say he did it before. Now we are. Obviously he did it. Obviously. What the hell was he doing so close to Easthampton that day? His alibi was that he was with a buddy in Worthington, which is 3 towns away from Easthampton. So he was obviously lying about where he was. And why wouldn’t he call her family members after she went missing? She had walked out on him before. Wouldn’t he assume that if she ran away, then she probably went to a family or friend’s house? Instead he just calls the cops and then sits at his house in Clarksburg and does some scrapbooking?

    GILLIAN JONES — THE BERKSHIRE EAGLE Chad Reidy looks through an unfinished scrapbook made by his wife Joanne 'Jo' Ringer in their Clarksburg home which they have lived in together since October 2016. Ringer has been missing since March 2. Monday, March 27, 2017.

    Never mind this:

    Because that’s normal. Give me a break.

    Oh, and remember this asshat?

    Screen Shot 2017-04-08 at 5.15.08 PM

    Turns out he’s not really his brother. He’s a liar, just like his friend Chad. Fuck you and your imaginary attorney Jonathan Kulp. Oh, and we have nothing but respect for people in the armed services. But if you bring up your service in a vain attempt to win a pissing match on Facebook, you’re a chud who joined the military for the wrong reasons. And let’s be honest, it’s no Japan 1945. You’re on a boat vacation in a harbor in a first world country. Get over yourself.

    Oh, and to his sister:

    Screen Shot 2017-04-08 at 5.18.55 PM

    You can kiss our ass if you think we’re shelling out five large for his funeral. What kind of bootleg funeral costs five grand anyway? Throwing bin Laden in the ocean cost more than that.

    So yea, we could go back and screenshot all the idiots who called us insensitive or said we were jumping to conclusions. But they now know we were right and they were wrong. As usual. Hopefully they find Jo Ringer soon so her poor family can have some closure. Never doubt Turtleboy. Ever. We are real news.

      Regardless of whether someone was right or wrong isn’t it more important that someone died?? I realize that if he hurt his wife, he probably deserved what he got but he still has family, friends that have to suffer through this now. It’s one thing to write stories about foodstamp selling bridge troll junkies but writing stories about a guy who killed himself and possibly his wife just to be right seems extra bogus….

      1. Lola


        Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. Actions have consequences so this article is not *extra bonus*

      2. The Gingerbread Man


        Brittany Lynn………I’ll bet you’re eyes are brown. Because you’re full of shit. First of all you couldn’t find me even if you had the resources. You can’t catch me I’m The Gingerbread Man! You definitely shouldn’t threaten to kill people on open web forums. Especially saying you’ll kill me too? What is your stupid ass thinking? You can be charged with a crime and arrested……Have somebody you know that can read explain the law to you. Even though the Constitution guarantees the right of free speech, that right is not an absolute one. The law has long recognized specific limitations when it comes to speech, such as prohibitions against slander and libel. In some situations, speech can even constitute a crime, such as in the case of criminal threats. A criminal threat, sometimes known as the terrorist threat, malicious harassment, or by other terms, occurs when someone threatens to kill or physically harm someone else. Just goes to show how ignorant you are………..the 2 of you deserve each other. A couple of attention seeking trollops that can’t garnish any attention from men, so they seek it any way they can get it. As for Ginger Plantier?? Everything that needs to be said about her already has………..NOBODY buys your excuses……regardless of what you think of me and my comments I never sat back and allowed my friend to be killed by a homicidal maniac….For the love of god he even looks like a murderer in his pictures!! Yet not a single solitary one of you lifted a finger to help?? You guys are a bunch of sorry asses and I’m sure as fuck glad you aren’t my friends………Stop threatening people it makes you look even more ignorant and stupid than you already do. Thank you for taking the time to read my opinions……………,.Do yourselves a favor and shut the fuck up. Making you look foolish is far too easy and a monumental waste of my precious time……now if you’ll excuse me I have to take a dump.

        1. Teigh Brown


          If you’re such a GREAT friend of Jo, where the FUCK were YOU when she needed help ? If you were such a good friend of Jo’s you would know how mentality, physically, & emotionally strong she was. I myself, as well as others were kept at bay by her requests NOT to harm Chad. If I didn’t love Jo the way I do I would’ve ignored her pleas, killed Chad myself, & then lost a long time friend anyway because she would never have talked to me again.
          Yes, we questioned whether she was being abused. We even suspected it. And we WANTED to intervene. But Jo’s persona demanded she deal w/ it on her own. Her nickname wasn’t CHAINZ for nothing you know. 20+ years hanging out w/ Bike Clubs, some 1%ers, made her a HARD, TOUGH BITCH. And no piece of shit hippie felon was ever going to abuse her. THAT’S why Jo LEFT. She is still technically MISSING. And when she returns, I will PERSONALLY hunt you fuckers down & take a BIG shit right on your doorstep. Another fucking brave keyboard warrior. Go fuck yourself.

          1. The Gingerbread Man


            I’m sorry for your loss. You should’ve trusted your instincts. I’ve been there. Done that. And I lost more than one friend for doing what I did. Nobody likes a tattle-tale. That’s the truth no matter how noble ones intentions are. That why I took an interest in this story. It’s also why I said what I said. All of a sudden I’m vilified. I contemplated not even responding to the hate mongering I’m barraged with. Everyone hated me for going to the police…….especially the female friend I felt compelled to help…….. I essentially list all my friends, my job, my place to live as well as the respect of “friends” who called me a snitch behind my back…..so I guess I just answered my own question.

        2. Brittany Lynn


          Hey guess what – I never said I would kill you, I truly said that it could be arranged , I NEVER said by me or by any of her friends or family . And you can throw your law bullshit all over the place – I’ve been going to school for criminal psychology for years , I’m onto your ass , I know that you were either close to chad or close to someone that was close to him. And I know that you spit a lot of bullshit just to hear yourself talk. Or to make yourself feel important , like I just said to ginger , anyone that was actually close to jo or her family and friends knows the real case and the real details surrounding it , anyone else is just trying to spit lies and try to put together pieces that don’t belong in their lives . It’s none of your business , none of it . I never directly threatened you lmao, I am more careful than that, I’m not an idiot , far from. Anyways , I have a life to get back to instead of trolling on here and blaming people for other people’s actions . Bye bye

          1. Jerry Garcia


            You’re full of shit. You and your dirtbag friends even tried to trick Turtleboy to try and find me! What were you jabronis gonna do anyways? Nothing. Same as what you did for your friend.

    2. Sterling Turtle Rider


      The never-ending list of people willing to find any insane excuse for someone’s behavior goes on… Good for Turtleboy for calling it like it seems, even when it’s not the ‘PC’ thing to do!

      7/10 would bang her

      1. Ginger English Plantier


        Shut your disgusting mouth, you f#cking pig!! That’s my friend you’re talking about & trust me with an attitude lime yours, she wouldn’t have given you the fuckin’ time of day!!

        1. Lenny


          I would love to sniff Jo Ringer’s soiled panties

          1. Hey Lenny


            Kill yourself asap

        2. Jerry Garcia


          I think you did it. Chad would never do such a thing…….oh wait maybe after years in Federal Prison he changed?? How could that be? Prison is such a nurturing environment. and all. Maybe she should have thought twice before marrying a guy fresh outta prison????
          Or maybe perhaps one of these million good friends of hers might have thought to mention it to her?? You’re a fucking tard. You are as culpable for this as Chad himself. I hope you can live with not helping her when she needed you.

          1. Jerry Garcia


            Ginger Plantier did it!

            1. Ginger


              Hey there fuck face, why don’t you use your real fucking name & stop hiding behind some pseudo coward bullshit… not surprised at all that you would come out with some bulkshit to try blaming friends!! You’re a little fuckin’ BITCH BOY!! Come find me… we’ll see what Ginger Plantier can really do then!!

            2. Jerry Garcia


              Evidently you didn’t read my previous post. Where were you when she was being abused? Home eating bon bons? Whatever you were doing I hope it was important. Your friend is dead because of YOU. It could’ve been prevented had you stepped in when she turned up at your house with handprints around her neck. But you did nothing and your friend was tragically killed by some maniac fresh out of prison. You can lie to yourself. You can insult and threaten me all you want. It doesn’t change the fact that you could’ve prevented her death. So take your candle from your vigil. Turn it sideways and shove it up your fat ass. You are nothing but an attention whore. You didn’t help her because there weren’t any reporters around I guess?? You have a whole lot of nerve being all over the news talking shit. You truly single handedly could have saved your friends life………but for some reason you did absolutely nothing….you had no problem telling the news outlets about her cries for help….why didn’t you mention it to someone that could’ve done something about it before she was dead?? You are a shitty human being trying to make up for letting this happen with candlelight vigils?? The only person you’re fooling is yourself. I’m not the only one that feels you’re culpable either. You should be ashamed and not running your mouth to any reporter who will listen…….oh yeah and on top of all that you are one heinous troll of an ugly bitch.

            3. Brittany Lynn


              Hey jerry Garcia – do you wanna die Also? Cause that could sure be arranged . Her friends and family were there for her as much as she would allow , sometimes people that are being abused mentally or physically don’t like to have it be known you stupid fucking dickhead , jo is a free spirit , she can date who she wants and do what she wants in her life and all we can do is advise and be there to support her , would you allow someone to dictate your love life ? No I didn’t think so ! Next time before you decide to sit there and talk shit about her friends and family not being there for her maybe you should tread very lightly , because she has a huge array of friends and family and we don’t take those kinds of comments very lightly , we have friends that can track your IP address in two seconds , so keep your dumb ass comments and opinions to yourself , be smart

            4. Ginger Plantier


              You clearly have NO FUCKING CLUE WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT LOSER!! She didn’t turn up with hand prints around her neck at MY FUCKING HOUSE.. and I absolutely DARE you to say that to the friend that she did run to!! The friend that took her in & hid her for 4 days and begged her to let them call the fucking cops!! YOU DON’T KNOW SHIT FUCKTARD!! Her friends gave over every single piece of evidence to the MA State Police IMMEDIATELY when that fucking douche bag did whatever he did to her… WE WERE TOLD BY THE COPS & THE DA’s OFFICE NOT TO RELEASE ANY INFORMATION TO THE PUBLIC BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T WANT CHAD TO KNOW WHAT THEY HAD ON HIM!! SO we kept our fucking mouths shut… than he takes the cowards way out & kills himself!! So yeah you IGNORANT FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT, I do feel bad… because I did what I was told by the cops… and I kept my mouth shut!! I WISH EVERY FUCKING DAY THAT I HAD JUST PLASTERED IT ALL OVER SOCIAL MEDIA WHAT KIND OF A WIFE BEATING, SOCIOPATHIC, NO GOOD NARCISSISTIC SCUM BAG CHAD REIDY REALLY WAS!! That will live on my conscience for ever… and my heart will always be heavy about it! BUT IF YOU THINK FOR ONE FUCKIN SECOND THAT ANY OF JO’s FRIENDS OR FAMILY COULD’VE DONE ANYTHING MORE THAN WE HAD ALREADY DONE TO KEEP THIS FROM HAPPENING, THAN YOU BELONG IN THE DEPTHS OF HELL RIGHT BESIDE THAT OTHER FUCKING COWARD!! And by the way…. don’t think it’s gone unnoticed how your cowardly little punk ass still hasn’t given your real name… but not to worry!! I got lots of people working on it & I even have a hunch of who you may be myself!! Hope you’re ready you waste of fuckin’ air & space!!

            5. Jerry Garcia


              You’re demonstrating just how classy her friends are. A bunch of attention seekers that feel guilty because their friend was murdered and they did nothing to save her. Save your domestic violence rhetoric for someone that cares. You all know you could’ve done something and didn’t…..that’s not my fault……stop blaming others for your mistake. It’s totally unbecoming and demonstrates just how ignorant you are……..the truth hurts doesn’t it?

            6. Jerry Garcia


              With all these “friends” one would think that one of them would’ve stepped up. Your excuses for not helping her are nothing but excuses. If veiled threats and ignorant insults are what you’re about no wonder none of you did anything.

            7. The Gingerbread Man


              A criminal threat involves one person threatening someone else with physical harm. The threat must be communicated in some way, though it doesn’t necessarily have to be verbal. A person can make a threat through email, text message, or even through non-verbal body language such as gestures or movements. However, some states require written or verbal threats, and in those states gestures are not enough.
              Criminal threats are made with the intention to place someone in fear of injury or death. However, it isn’t necessary for a victim to actually experience fear or terror. Rather, it’s the intention of the person making the threat that matters. The intent of a person who makes threats is usually determined by the circumstances surrounding the case.
              You cannot commit a criminal threat if the threat is vague or unreasonable. The threat must be capable of making the people who hear it feel as if they might be hurt, and conclude that the threat is credible, real, and imminent. If, for example, you threaten to blow up the world unless your bartender doesn’t bring your drink to you immediately, no reasonable person hearing it would believe the threat was real. On the other hand, if you walk into a store with a gun and threaten to shoot the clerk unless she gives you a refund, such a threat is credible and specific.
              So Brittany and Ginger…..do you think you can commit crimes because the police are going to feel sorry for you???????
              You’ll know the answer to that by the end of the day.

      2. Jenn soko


        Really??? That’s what you say?? She would never have given a person tho thinks like you a chance. You are just a sad human!!

        1. Lenny


          I just had a drink with Jo Ringer at the Brass Cat.

      3. Teigh Brown


        You minuscule disgrace of a human life, Jo wouldn’t have anything to do w/ your 2 year old little Tictac wee-wee. She would take ONE look @ you & insult you so bad you would run back to your Mother’s basement, turn on Tele-Tubbies, & start to jack-off using your own tears of misery, shame , & failure as lube.

      What a coward. Abusive wife beater, kills his wife, and then when the heat comes on kills himself.

      Good, see you in hell my friend.

    8. RIP Jo Ringer


      No surprise, it was a given from the beginning. Especially when he killed himself.

    9. Maggie the Cat


      This man doesn’t deserve a decent funeral, and funerals are not necessary in general. His “friends” and family can mourn in private. A man like this, living or dead, does not deserve any respect. It will cost money to put him in the ground, but Social Security does provide a small death benefit for burials and cremations are cheaper than embalming. His friends and family can contribute as much as they wish, but they should be embarrassed to ask anyone else for money.

      Then again, perhaps they are not really asking for money for a funeral, but for something else…. In any case, they’ll get nothing from me, and I hope they get nothing from anyone else.

    10. Scola got away with killing HIS wife


      If Reidy’s last name was SCOLA, he wouldn’t have been bothered. When Scola (allegedly???) killed HIS WIFE, he had defensive wounds on his hands, but claimed he did that putting in an air conditioner for her. PLEASE! Candice Scola told all her friends and co-workers that her husband was going to kill her, but that didn’t seem to matter to the political police and connected Worcesterites. He walked…unscathed. Loser!

        Correct, Long time ago & he did luck out.

      ” Jerry Garcia ” huh ? Who are you really ? Chad’s CUNT sister ? Finally getting involved by using a fake name in order to insult Ginger w/out fear of incriminating yourself ??

      Or, is this the EX ? The slimey, smelly, VD riddled snail trail from Easthampton ? Never could accept or handle the fact Chad left your psycho dead Tish smelling pussy for a much more attractive, more intelligent woman ? A woman who FOUGHT BACK when Chad started kicking HER ass. See, jealousy is a cruel & evil thing. Chad was overflowing w/ jealously because he knew he wasn’t good enough for Jo. He KNEW his days w/ her were limited. She had enough & finally split. And now Chad is DEAD. He sits in Hell getting BUTTFUCKED by Bellzebub & his endless Army of Demons. Little hippie Chad has KILLED himself. The FUCKING COWARD couldn’t handle the FACT that Jo LEFT him because of his continuous abuse. Jo was brave enough to FIGHT BACK, & she is brave enough to have LEFT. When Jo is comfortable enough she WILL return. And everyone of you FUCKING CUNTS, especially outspoken, ballsy shit stains on a mattress like yourself, will have to swallow all the shit you love to talk ANOMOUSLY on social media.

      REVEAL YOUR TRUE NAME. Otherwise ANY comment you make is essentially libelous because everyone knows you can never trust a coward, or take their words seriously.

      In closing, your Grandmother blows goats, your Grandpa suk’d off Hitler, your neph-cousin is your sister-mom, & everything you ever attempt in life will fail miserably because a waste of a human life such as yourself should’ve been swallowed, farted out onto your Father’s chest, lapped up & vomited into the fucking toilet.

      In short, go fuck yourself.

      1. Elliot Stabler


        Text message tough guy. Prison turns good people into monsters. Your friend is dead. You are a fuck up that didn’t have the stones to do the right thing. You’re mad about it and looking for others to blame. You all are totally pathetic. Threatening violence. Attempting to take “credit” for the fuses suicide. You are some deeply troubled individuals. You should channel your grief differently perhaps? You should really think about who you’re talking with in anonymous message boards. You never know who you’re threatening? Just saying.

        1. Teigh Brown


          A THIRD false name. You are BEYOND pathetic. ALL of your comments coming from someone who CHOOSES to remain ANONYMOUS.

          I’m not a fuck up but I have referred to as ” fucked up “.
          I ( as well as others ) tried to get Jo to leave. To give her help. But your blind ignorance won’t let you realize that fact. We ARE mad. But we’re not looking to BLAME anyone. We know who’s to blame. CHAD REIDY.

          You want pathetic ? Use your REAL name & get just a TINY amount of respect.

          And I don’t take credit for nor am I looking for credit in Chad killing himself. However I feel no remorse either. The only thing that bothers me about that fucking piece of shit being dead is he may have taken the secret of where Jo is w/ him.

          Questioning how I channel my greif ? I channel my current emotions towards the fucked up insensitivity of DUMB FUCKS like you.

          However, I DO take your comment as a veiled threat. Know this:

          INTRUDERS WILL BE SHOT
          SURVIVORS WILL BE SHOT AGAIN

          Looking forward to your NEWEST name is response to this comment.

          1. Your mama


            Get a life text message tough guy……you’re a fucking jerk off…..everybody knew Chad did it….you’re no Lennie Briscoe I’ll tell you that much. Go ask your bullshit PI to try and find you a life?

      Post From Jo Ringer’s Facebook Page:

      Jo Ringer with Chad Reidy.
      August 22, 2016 · Amesbury, MA ·

      The day off and I’m going somewhere fun with my love!! Old orchard beach baby!! Funny how in a short almost six months I’ve gone more places and seen more things then I have ever. People say do what makes you happy, but finding someone that really honestly likes to do what you do is almost impossible. Usually people just do it to compromise so that they can make their other happy..for us it’s not a compromise it’s just who we are. I love you Chad Reidy, you are without a doubt where I belong. And most of all thank you for all the smiles you have made and for all the smiles that are too come!

      The above paragraph is copied and pasted from Jo Ringer’s Facebook Page.

      Having been a very close friend of Chad’s, I have been following this story with extreme sadness and hope. Though I will never get the chance to see my good friend Chad again, I hope and pray that his beloved will soon be reunited with her friends and family.

      Given my relationship with Chad, it is hard for me to be unbiased in my thoughts and opinions involving this tragedy. I am aware that my point of view will manipulate the facts to make it appear Chad is innocent, even with all the allegations toward making him look guilty. I have to keep telling myself, I don’t know what went on behind closed doors, and I don’t have all the facts. That being said, as hard as it is watching the cruel crusade to shadow any goodness Chad possessed with continued reminders of accusations of abuse and mistrust, I do not engage in this endless discussion of rage motivated conversation.

      After I read the above paragraph, pulled from a post on Jo’s Facebook page, I felt some relief. A lot of attention has been given to Chad’s comment, “She is where I belong,” I thought that sharing her post would shed some light to why he said it, as the second to last sentence, “I love you Chad Reidy, you are without a doubt where I belong. “, gives evidence that the wording, “you are where I belong,” was a personal acknowledgement of their feelings toward one another.

      I don’t like what people are saying about Chad, nor do I think it is right. I am not going to pretend I would know how it feels to have a dear friend disappear, but I am guessing I may very well come to the same conclusions her friends have about her disappearance. I only hope that I wouldn’t turn to social media to vent my frustrations and cruelty, as I think social media is a shitty place to do that sort of thing. It is much better discussed with those close to us, who are sympathetic to our views, and there is little to no chance of turning things into a worthless back and forth of hatred and threats.

      I do hope that in light of this revelation, given that Turtleboy was so instrumental in slinging mud towards Chad, highlighting his post, “She is Where I belong,” as such a suspicious statement supporting the accusation of his guilt; they would want to equally highlight this information that explains why he may have said something like that in his post. My guess is that won’t happen and I will only get some cruel reply. To other friends/family of Chad stay strong, nothing will change the good Chad brought to our lives. And to all those that share my hope and concern for Jo, I wish you peace and for your glorious reunion with her to be safe and soon.

        Your comment has me conflicted. It was a very respectful POV from one of Chad’s friends. Well written, intellectual, & again respectful. I agree w/ you about the vile arguments & insults being exchanged on social media. And I am not a hypocrite to say I haven’t been involved because I have. I’ve questioned Chad’s integrity & character from the very beginning. Because I know most of the facts involving the ” alleged ” abuse.
        So when I see someone insulting a friend of mine & blatantly throwing accusations @ one of the best friends Jo has, I responded in kind ( & will continue to do so ).
        I can respect and conversate w/ a person such as yourself regardless of who you are originally friends with. Jo or Chad. I think my feelings on the subject are pretty well known, but I ( & the rest of Jo’s supporters ) appreciate ALL opinions as long as they are presented in a well spoken, intelligent manner as yours was.

          Thank you, I really appreciate your saying that. I have to admit, didn’t expect that from you. We can all be driven by our emotions, and as hard as I try, I can not for a second pretend to know how I would react if in your shoes, if not with extreme emotion. I have been following, and know that you are very outspoken. I am not saying things weren’t different behind closed doors, but the Chad I know didn’t threaten to kill dogs, was abused by his ex and never reacted, took a lot of shit and remained level headed, and always tried to make people feel good. Although I have spoken to him on the phone, I have not seen him in years. I hate to think he could be responsible for this, and wonder if he is, what in the world could have elicited this transition from such a kind, forgiving soul into an abusive, manipulative asshole…. I am still hoping for the former, that this just looks horrible instead of him being proved guilty.

          I know he loved Jo dearly. I remember when he told me he was getting married, I advised against it, after the last relationship he was in, in which he was the victim. I know he was very happy, that Jo made him very happy…. I didn’t know Jo, but I have talked to friends of mine in the area and they really like her.

          I have so many questions, truth is, if they were answered, I don’t know what would change…. my friend would still be dead and yours would still be missing. What we do know for a fact is that they brought happiness to each other’s lives, at least for a little while. I hope that for those of us that remain, we can find a little solidarity in that. And I can tell you, if Chad was involved, not I, nor any of his friends that I know, would agree with that sort of behavior. And if I had any reason to think he was being abusive, I would probably have had his ass beat myself and made him get the mental help he needed.

          I want to believe this is a setup. I am able to take the information I have seen and create more than one scenario where Chad is innocent, and whoever did it is able to point things in his direction. The one thing I can not figure out is why…why would anyone do this. Only thing that would make sense, (being as removed as I am), is a stalker, someone that may have been obsessed with her, and felt like they “deserved” to be with her, and maybe believed she wanted to be with him, if only Chad were out of the way. ….. I know its reaching, and I promised myself that I wasn’t going to start creating new theories on social media, as their are so many to choose from already.

          Thank you, Teigh, for being able to be open minded and understanding. I truly see your POV and I appreciate you taking the time to see mine. I think folks on both sides could take a lesson from you. Then we could start working together with productive input that might actually lead us to Jo.
          We want to find Jo, we want her to be safe, and God forbid Chad be guilty, but whoever it is….We want justice.

    15. Detective Lennie Briscoe


      All the articles I’ve read and social media posts I’ve seen about this tragedy absolutely turn my stomach………in my opinion people on both sides of this tragedy need to step back and think about how the other is affected……one thing both sides should be hoping for is this woman’s return. That might be a good place to start to share a common ground and let the hate go. Good vibes and love are what’s going to bring her back to her family and friends. I’m certain that the husband’s friends and family would like nothing more than her to return home safe and sound. That being said, hurling hateful, unfunny, ignorant comments at a family while they’re trying to both mourn and make sense of this is classless. Hopefully someone if not everybody will go back and remove their hateful comments. Hope and hate are like oil and water…….I thought about saying nothing but I saw a glimmer of hope in recent comments and wanted to try and build on that. I’m sure nobody cares what I have to say…….I just don’t want to read any more about this…..the next article I want to read about this is when the wife comes back. Forever the optimist I believe she took off. There are “Underground Railroad” types of groups that assist battered women in escaping abusive partners. These groups are ultra-secretive there would be no paper trail. When a woman heads for her next stop not even people of the house she is in have no idea where she goes from there. It could be months before she even gets the information that she is safe. Those are facts 100% truth. So friends and families involved be positive. Send out good vibes and pray for this woman’s return……..and regardless of the hate you have for the husband pray for his soul. Keep the faith she’ll be back.

        Thank you for that.

      2. NOT Praying For Chad's Soul


        The underground railroad theory doesn’t sound plausible. In this day and age of internet access she can google her or her abuser’s name and find out that the threat is over. Unlikely that she wouldn’t have confided her plan to one of her friends/family even if she gave no details or knew any details. While I don’t know these people personally, I have a hard time believing she would intentionally distress her 19 year old child by intentionally disappearing.

    16. The Gingerbread Man


      Ginger Plantier……….did you honestly for one second think that some unqualified hack was going to be able to manipulate Turtleboy? Of course you did. You’re a moron. The more articles I read the bigger douche you become. Not to mention the rest of this woman’s jabroni buddies. Everyone has something to say to the press. Nobody had anything to say before though. A bunch of sorry ass stories and lame excuses is all I hear. You all claim the police told you to keep information to yourselves and not share it with the public. That was AFTER Mrs. Reidy disappeared. What about BEFORE she went missing? I’m no police officer but I’m pretty certain the police didn’t instruct you to keep the information to yourself then. You had all the info you needed to plant Mr. Reidy back in the clink lickety split. You, for whatever reason you choose to tell yourself, kept that information to yourselves. Nobody took any action….one guy “offered to take care of him” but he listened to the woman being abused and begrudgingly allowed Mr. Reidy to keep breathing. But each and every single one of you could’ve and should’ve gotten her the fuck out of there. What kind of friends let their friend move out to the boondocks with some ex-con that looks like an axe murderer?? I know you’re not the sharpest knife in the drawer but even you had to see it. Enough of all that horse shit. We’ve been over that already. We don’t need to rehash that. I just needed to clarify my position. I apologize if it was redundant. That being said…….why on Earth would you have that hack P.I. impersonator try and trick Turtleboy to get my information? What exactly were you planning on doing with my information? I’m not coming to any candlelight vigils so you don’t need to send me e-mail updates. I’m no Keskin or anything but if I didn’t know any better I’d think you were going to threaten me with violence. Given your current situation one might think maybe violence doesn’t solve too many problems. Although Mr. Reidy did demonstrate that you can hide a dead body and the authorities have a hard time finding it. I suppose I should get my will in order. The cherry on my sundae is that if ANYTHING happens to me. If a piano falls from the sky and lands on me. If I’m trampled by a stampede of moose in Canada hiding from you, if I disappear on Phish tour and nobody can locate or find me………..the authorities will know precisely where to begin looking and exactly who to question. And they sure as fuck will not be consulting Halo Investigations…..that is if they exist anymore.
