A story that has my attention today is a national story about missing 6 year old North Carolina boy Maddox Ritch. The autistic child disappeared while camping with his father Ian and Dad’s girlfriend, when he allegedly saw a jogger going by, began to run after the jogger, and was never seen again. The cops have drained the lake at the park, searched high and low, and still no sign of Maddox. Maddox’s father Ian Ritch is a suspect because how the hell does a 6 year old run away from a grown man? Plus, who would randomly kidnap and murder a child at a public park? And where is Maddox?
Investigators say Maddox Ritch's father was the last person to see him. They were together at a North Carolina park on Saturday. The father told police that Maddox wandered off while walking around a lake, which investigators are now draining. https://t.co/HAS8q4kPIn pic.twitter.com/oeWs8FegHB

From the looks of Ian and his ex-wife’s Facebook page he appears to be a loving father:
The mother has been on TV bawling her eyes out. You can tell from the pain in her voice that she sounds like a mother who misses her child and has no clue where he is.
Now, I really want to believe that Ian had nothing to do with this. I can’t even fathom how anyone can harm their own child. But the fact of the matter is that the kid is 6 years old. He shouldn’t have been able to outrun his father. Maddox is autistic, not a stray dog. The child wouldn’t just run after a jogger and then disappear forever. And if he had displayed tendencies to run away like this before then Dad should’ve been prepared for it.
He’s also been posting a lot on Facebook:
“And just so you know I never received a dime for my interview.”
I’ve never been in a situation like this before, but I find it hard to imagine myself ever saying something like that if I legitimately didn’t know where my kid was. I mean, really? Your biggest concern right now is letting a bunch of strangers know that you weren’t paid for interviews? Why would that even cross your mind right now?
And his interviews are even shadier. Watch what happens when CBS’s David Begnaud prods him by saying, “You’re a grown man, he’s a little boy. I don’t understand how he can outrun you.”
"You're a grown man. He's a little boy. How did he outrun you?" @DavidBegnaud asks the father of Maddox Ritch, the missing 6-year-old autistic boy in North Carolina.

“He can run. He can run. And I couldn’t keep up with him. Not that fast.”
So…..he asked how it was possible for a six year old to outrun a grown man in the prime of his life, and his response was, “That boy sure is fast.” Oh yea, that clears things up.
He also admitted in that same interview that he’s been arrested for threats before:
Ian Ritch says “I know I’m the #1 suspect” in the disappearance of his son #maddoxritch from a park in Dallas, North Carolina. Ian says he’s been asked by police for his phone records and for permission to search his vehicles and his home. Maddox has autism & is non verbal. pic.twitter.com/bKImAMd5jq

“It was either he ran into the woods, or he was kidnapped.”
First of all, the woods at this park are not thick. If he ran into the woods Dad would’ve found him. And unless the Church of Mother of God is down there recruiting people in the Publix parking lot, I find it hard to believe he’s been kidnapped.
And although Maddox has been reported to be non-verbal autistic, I found this comment that Ian made on Facebook over four years ago which seemed odd:
So he used to talk when he was a toddler? Is that a thing? Kids speak when they’re younger and then don’t speak as they get older? Maybe someone with a non-verbal child could offer us some more insight on this.
Then he did this press conference today where he basically offered nothing new and rambled on for a few minutes about how he can’t sleep or eat…..
I’m not saying this guy killed his child, but he’s acting exactly like someone might act if they knew what happened to their missing child. He doesn’t cry. He doesn’t even come on the verge of crying. He barely seems upset, and when he talks about how he misses his boy it seems inauthentic.
Seriously, what was the point of that? Why would the cops drag him out for that interview? He added nothing of value, offered no new insight, and simply repeated his normal talking points. It reminded me a lot of an incident last year in Memphis. Tyler Tessier’s pregnant wife was missing and unbeknownst to him the cops considered him the primary suspect. In order to gather more evidence on him they just let him talk so that he could give himself enough rope to hang himself. Here he is at a press conference with the victim’s parents, who knew full well he was the primary suspect, babbling on just like Ian Ritch did in that video:
In my professional opinion as an Internet detective the cops in North Carolina were doing the same thing. Letting their primary suspect talk, and talk, and talk.
The same thing also happened last year when Jo Ringer was missing in Clarksburg MA, and her husband Chad Reidy did an interview on TV in which he couldn’t have acted shadier. He also had no idea that the cops were focusing on him as their primary suspect.
Or how bout this interview of Stuart Hazell, who at the time many believed killed his girlfriend’s granddaughter Tia Sharp in London. He gives himself away in this interview by speaking about her in the past tense:
I’m not saying that Ian Ritch killed his kid, but he’s exhibiting the same behaviors as these three murderers. The more these people talk, the more they give themselves away.
Let’s not gloss over the fact that Ian Ritch seems like he’s no stranger to a crackpipe. I could easily picture him and his unidentified new girlfriend being high as shit and having an accident with Maddox. Who knows what their motive could possibly be. Maybe it really was those crazy church human traffickers everyone’s running from at Target. My money’s on Dad though.
