Here’s a crazy story out of the pitt known as Northeastern Connecticut:

About 100 people showed up and stood together Thursday evening in Sterling in hopes that a local teen will be found safe. Todd “T.J.” Allen, 18, went missing on Monday afternoon. He went out dirt biking on his Honda XR100 in an unknown direction around 1 p.m., and sent a text message less than an hour later saying he’d fallen and hurt his leg:


He hasn’t been seen or heard from since. Several attempts to reach Allen or ping the location of his cell phone since those texts were received failed, indicating this phone either ran out of power or was shut off. At Thursday night’s vigil, his sister told FOX 61 she was too emotional to speak. Her future mother in law, Erica Rogers, spoke out, sharing the pain everyone involved is feeling.

“It’s very emotional its been a very long week,” Rogers said. “We’ve all hit the point now where we’re numb, we’ve all been searching day and night.”

Rogers said TJ disappearing is unlike him and that something is not adding up.

“He rode his dirt bike every day, all the time, he would go off for a dirt bike ride and his mother would say be back by dark and he would be back by dark,” she said. “He’s not the type of kid that just got on his bike and took off, for a joy ride and isn’t telling anybody, there’s something wrong .”

On Tuesday and Wednesday, hundreds of people, including State Police K9 teams, firefighters, the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, crews using helicopters and ATVs, as well as friends, family and neighbors, formed search parties to try to find the teen missing.

However, State Police called off their search at sunset on Wednesday, and did not pick it back up Thursday due to the bad weather. Several volunteer crews headed out in the woods Wednesday night and Thursday to continue the search in the dark, despite police saying not to, but to no avail. The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection continued limited search activities on Thursday, and volunteers were out there again.

However, while searching on Thursday, at least one group of volunteers got lost themselves. They had to call State Police to guide them out of the woods and back to safety. This was what police had feared, and why they discouraged people from continuing to search.

Many of the volunteers helping with the search coordinated through Facebook, posting on a group page “Search for T.J.” There, friends and loved ones have been posting words of encouragement, along with praise for the way the community has come together in this search effort. Other posts include instructions on where they should focus the search, as well as an interactive map people can use to track areas that have been searched to be more efficient.


I don’t know if we’ve ever seen a shadier story with so much Internet speculation going on. There are multiple Facebook pages where Internet detectives are actively getting to the bottom of this. The family started the “Search for TJ” page, but since so many people have had their comments removed due to the fact that they speculate that something about this story doesn’t smell right, they started this “TJ Allen Uncensored Discussion” page instead. And there is no shortage of theories. We spent a couple hours looking through them today and it gave Turtleboy a popsicle headache. I mean, you try reading shit like this for two hours and not wanting to blow your head off:


Here’s what we know for sure though:

  • The kid disappeared over a week ago on his dirtbike in the woods
  • His cell phone is no longer traceable
  • His family owns 30 acres of land and won’t let the cops search it, because it is rumored that they grow weed there
  • People have dedicated thousands of combined man hours to searching for him
  • Other people have gone missing while searching for this missing person
  • There is no sign of a struggle or any other sort of evidence that would help police find out what happened to him
  • He obviously cannot still be alive in the woods, which means he’s either dead or hiding out somewhere
  • People have donated money to help the family through this “crisis”
  • A lot of people are starting to think the whole thing is a scam

That’s what we know. But the Internet has turned into a really bad episode of Nancy Grace. Let’s see what the buzz is. Here’s just maybe 1% of the Facebook speculation….

First of all, the “roomers” are out of control:


So many roomers. Not enough beds for them all.

Some think he drove into a lake:


Others think something is up with the family:


Lots of people think it was a drug deal gone bad:


Some who have participated in the search have their reservations:


Some think the text message was from the people who did something to him:


Some who have spoken with the family think something is up:


Some think he was a weed runner:


Not one credible media outlet has confirmed any of this, but the Facebook machine is filled with unconfirmed anecdotes:



Some are claiming he stole $500 from his parents before he left and took off for Danielson:


Others are saying he packed a toothbrush and the cops are suspicious:


Some have alleged that they have firsthand information that the kid is not even considered missing:


Which would probably be helpful info to the people who spent hours looking for him.

Others claim that his Instagram has been active since he went missing:


Some say that he’s running from the law:


Then there’s his sister. Her real name is Dianna Croonenberghs, but she goes by Dee Nurmi on Facebook.





Some people have pointed out the fact that she’s got a rap sheet:


And the fact that the family seems to be coordinating the whole investigation instead of, I dunno, the cops, seems suspicious to some.


This is the sister’s mother-in-law to be:


So wait….you want less people to help you? Oh yea, this all makes TONS of sense.

Turtleboy interviewed one person who claims to have spoken with the family and thinks something is up:

He stole 500 from his dad the day before he went “missing” and they got in a huge fight. I personally talked to his dad and he’s like not concerned at all. He didn’t want the cops at his house cuz he was scared he was gonna get bagged for all of his weed. He refused to let people search his 30 ACRES OF LAND cuz he said it’s pointless. He said if anyone tries to search it he’ll have them arrested immediately. It gets better. His sister hit her ex boyfriend with a car and killed him. She got paid 20k on December 28th, which is the same day the cops finally got a ping off of his cell phone and it magically disappeared. TJ and his sister are wicked close. his sister has a record on aiding and abetting. 

Although according to others it’s not a big deal that she has been charged with aiding and abetting and/or giving false statements to the police in her past. Why? Because everyone does that:


Strong point. VERY strong. I mean, who among us can’t relate to lying to the police? Lots of normal people do that.

Once again, Turtleboy has no idea what happened because we’re not state cops. All we know is that without Facebook people wouldn’t have any way to speculate in groups like this for the world to see. We’d actually have to wait until the investigation is completed. Fucked up, right?

The bottom line is that TJ Allen was either murdered or he’s hiding out somewhere and will reappear sometime in the near future. If he’s dead they probably through his body in the water somewhere and they probably won’t find it until the spring, if they find it at all. Hate to say it but the theory about the drug deal gone bad seems to be the theory that makes the most sense. All we’re saying is that if the family has actual information about the truth, then the public should be made aware so that people stop wasting their time looking for him. Just sayin.

    Wouldn’t they have helicopter fly over the property? Maybe the parents are trying to help him hide from drug dealers that have threatened to kill him….either way, the parents know something.

    Is there even any truth to Dee and her “running an ex over and getting paid” lol. If there is, fuck it its important to keep in mind, but if its false then we’re just making her look bad (or worse, she makes herself look bad lol). All these girls shown in this article, especially Krystal Hardiman, how/where are you getting your information? Ballsy enough to make comments that you sound SO SURE of. Seems interesting. Wheres your friend if you know exactly what happened and how it went down?

    • Shit just got real.

      What I remember of Dee is Oxycontin. She would always have the 80s and also had dilaudid. I don’t know where she was getting them , I was guessing her parents. But anyway , the entire family are losers.

    These woods have very steep hills with low points where he could be laying RIP. There was another person that went MIA in 2010 on a ATV in these same patch of woods that still hasn’t been found. He was on a red ATV.

    Very odd circumstances…
    First off,the kid didn’t tell anyone where he was going, stupid kid, equally stupid parents
    They didn’t know where he usually bikes?
    If he was killed or died out there somehow, the coyotes and other critters would have started to dismember and consume him…
    His sister is a winner with all of her lovely photos and her rap sheet..I hate people who don’t bend their hat brims!! Guys it’s not a cool look anymore
    They have 30 acres of land and dont want it searched for him?
    They must be growing,weed like crazy, but it’s all dead, and gone by ,by now, so I don’t think any dealers bumped him off ..
    Just a weird situation
    Hope they find the kid

        Hey asshole, ever try typing on an iPad with fingers the size of kielbasas? It ain’t fun. I thought I would do the community a favor and report that I haven’t seen him. Just spoke to a nice family of grey aliens, they haven’t seen him either.

        Maybe he’s holed up with Kevin Lynch and making Twink movies?

    Thanks for posting what everyone has been thinking all along. To think of all of the time wasted by worried family, friends, and community members for the biggest SCAM of 2016! I think there is much TRUTH to your detective work. Keep us posted on any new updates. IF anyone else has read any other TBS articles, they would see the amount of facts that get uncovered! Let the truth be told!

    If you think this is the “Greatest Internet Speculation Mystery” of all time, you don’t know the Internet well. This is a bunch of people playing armchair detective and saying some nasty things. Humanity sucks and I hope everyone who says anything bad about the family or TJ gets cancer and dies.

      Ok now a big question. What is up with people wanting cancer and for people to die on here. I really am perplexed with this entire attitude. Is this really a thing now? Is this a new fucking thing when someone disagrees with you – you order DEATH and CANCER upon them? What kind of fucking idiot people are you anyway? A bunch of cry baby pussies is all I see and I bet I am not alone in this assessment.

      Look – because you do not agree with someone’s inalienable right to an opinion that differs from yours – you wish things such as cancer and death upon them? What the fuck is this 5th fucking grade? (not a shot at all 5th graders btw) Grow the fuck up trolls. And while you are at it purchase a fucking life.

      Some of these topics are serious in nature and deserve a serious discussion. Not your fucking bullshit.

    I’ve been keeping up with this story. Something’s not right at all.
    If your child is missing and obviously hurt, then you’d do whatever it takes
    to find them (even if it meant busting your illegal pot operation.)
    The parents not wanting their 30-ACRE property searched
    is mad suspicious, which I am sure is what investigators are thinking.
    They know more than anybody does on freaking Facebook..
    I’d check if he had any drug dealing friends or life insurance on him.
    The kid is either dead or took off, I know I would if I was surrounded by that group.

    • Linda
      January 2, 2017 at 11:17 pm

      My opinion.. I have a heart felt feeling that the parents have a lot to do with his disappearance… To the official…’Go to the judge and ask for a search warrant’.. And than a Forensic Techs along with a Forensic K-9…

      • January 3, 2017 at 7:21 pm

        They r saying Tj stole 500.00 dollars from his dad, they got in an aegument, maybe their property needs to be checked for the missing kid, we don’t know if the argument got out of control with him en dad and something happened.

  • Krystal
    January 2, 2017 at 10:52 pm

    Well, one of my comments was part of a post asking what we think happened. Who ever wrote this really was the one pushing people to talk about the subject. Nothing anyone has said has been proven as fact. All of these comments were from threads asking people what they think happened and what they know. This was a pointless article from someone who went onto a social page and baited people. Not to mention the misspelling and poor grammar.

  • AD

    Idk the family…I also don’t think it’s a big deal if you grow/buy/sell/smoke weed…I believe now 1 in 5 people live in a state where it’s legal. I heard that on NPR, a very reputable news source. If weed was worth robbing or murdering a kid over then the buyers have been living under a rock. I also don’t think it’s a big deal to have a family member who has been a less than exemplarary citizen. Don’t we all have one? I am very surprised, however, that none of the conspiracy theories match mine. My first thought was that if he did hurt himself or his bike, he may have been walking on a road with his bike and got picked up by a ‘friendly’ stranger…Or a creepy old sex offender traveling in a pick up truck the day after Christmas. The bike was thrown in the back and there isn’t anything to find. Might seem like a horrible situation but if this were my son I’d be praying he was alive chained in a basement like a dog instead of dead in a lake.

  • Linda
    January 2, 2017 at 9:39 pm

    Let’s think about the beginning of this story… Do you remember when the media wrote… That his family owns 30 acres of land but the rumor is that they’re growing weed on the property and that’s why they won’t let the police or any official search their land.. Also, another thought… This is harsh to say but does the young man’s parents have life insurance on him? I know this is a cruel question but this is a reality..

    • Megan
      January 2, 2017 at 9:53 pm

      His patents would never do anything to him and the property was searched!! This whole thing is so out of control and false! They didn’t want the 7,000 volunteers walking through their property. Police and K9 and special trackers have gone through their property!

      • Linda
        January 2, 2017 at 10:14 pm

        Megan… I have read the whole story… The whole dialogue… And the scenarios of some individuals… And TJ’s father stated that if anyone tried to search his property that they would be immediately arrested.. and next time Megan you want to discuss this with me do not send your feedback to my email..

          First of all I know the family personally so I don’t care what you read! I’ve been here in the mix and actually know what’s going on not sitting behind a key board reading! Second I don’t think think you understand how this works Linda!! You signed up for this where you clicked for it to send to your email! Dumbass! I’m commenting on the thread!

  • Carol
    January 2, 2017 at 9:18 pm

    I don’t understand where the tracks are as dirt bikes leave tracks and usually have a common path. How can his bike and his body both be not found? First think they should have done is brought out a tracking k9. Praying he will be found safe and sound.

    This is disgusting. First off you know no facts. The parents have let professionals search their property. They didn’t want thousands of people walking their property. They are very kind simple people. The page got way out of control from small town talk and speculations to internet trolls with nothing better to do. No this about this article is accurate except for the fact that a young man is missing and way to much internet investigation was allowed to go on! You have no idea what you are doing to a family that is hurting in the worst way. I was disgusted by the facebook pages and now you just took it to a whole new level…. for what? Nothing but people’s entertainment. Nothing about this is entertaining. It’s heart breaking and no matter what a mother deserves to have her son come home to her no matter what! I truly hope this page doesn’t reach a already heart broken family. P.S. the facebook pages were not started or run by family! Leave the family alone. I hope nothing like this ever happens to you.

  • Angel
    January 2, 2017 at 8:09 pm

    I honestly don’t think he’s missing at all.. I mean. Come on no bike backpack phone nothing left behind anywhere.. a lil weird to me.. and the whole family not letting cops search there yard a little more crazy.. they clearly know something. I’d be pissed off to if I went out searching for someone that just ran away. Or is hiding in a shed in the back yard.. this whole thing makes no sense to me at all.. but anyways hope this kid turns up soon.

  • Turd Burglestein

    I don’t see how the growing weed on their land theory would be the case right now since it’s the middle of winter now. Most people growing outdoors would have harvested their crop by mid to late October so those plants would be long gone by now.

    But from what I’ve read, there does appear to be something shady going on and the family likely knows more than they’re telling.

    And the theory about him going off on a bender with the money doesn’t add up either. $1000 will be gone pretty quick during a bender, unless he’s just drunk.

    Anyways, hope they find the kid alive and in 1 piece.

    • Lola Bunny
      January 2, 2017 at 11:02 pm

      My first thought about the weed too. Unless they have a big grow- green house on the property? If that was my kid I would do anything so they could search. Very weird. Like you, I just hope the kid is ok. Honestly I only made it 1/4 through the article. Maybe I’ll finish it tomorrow.
