Melinda's Friends Speak Out - James Duckett

James Duckett, Josh Ducketts father, has been on death row for 22 years for the rape and murder of 12 year old Theresa McAbee in 1987. He has been appealing his case: the judge is the same as the one for the CNN lawsuit. James maintains his innocence.

Melinda also believed he was innocent. She also tried to reconcile Josh with his father.

The first time Melinda visited James Duckett was with Josh on October 16, 2005. Then Josh visited James on his own a couple weeks later (after the Mall Incident and he had moved out on Melinda).

Melinda wrote to James – 60 pages of letters. And she visited him May 7, 2006. She also scheduled a visit with him for August 27, 2006 (same day Trenton went missing) which was cancelled by James just a couple days prior to the planned visit. You can read his letter here:
She then rescheduled a visit for the following weekend September 3, 2006 and arranged for Nanny and Poppy to baby sit Trenton.

Josh Duckett went with his uncle Donald Jordan to visit James the second weekend in August 2006. (2 weeks BEFORE Trenton went missing ) That was Josh’s LAST visit to James. Josh was mad at his father for “siding” with Melinda and for his Dad paying money to Melinda because Josh did not make child support payments.

James is very disappointed in his son and takes responsibility for not being there to make him the Man Josh should be. In one of her letters, Melinda sent James a copy of the myspace email she got from Josh. James warned Josh in a letter to him after he read that threatening email (which “scared the hell out of him”) that IF Josh in fact had sent that email, he was looking at 30 years in prison. Maybe that prompted Josh to visit his dad in August 2006.

James also believes that there is nothing in Melinda’s makeup (even though he only knew her a short time) that would indicate she would harm Trenton in any way.

Here are some excerpts from his letters to me.

About the child support and the threatening email:

James feeling guilty about canceling August 27, 2006 visit:

Excerpt about "siding with Melinda"

Note:  Josh Duckett "mentioned the porn to his Dad in early August 2006 BEFORE the "family found it in late August".  Hmmmmmm. And Josh WASN'T upset by it.
James carries a lot of guilt:

It seems to me that James Duckett - sitting on death row - is more of a MAN than his son Josh Duckett.
James is another suspect, like Melinda, who was picked and then LE built the case around the suspect and ignored any evidence that did not point to them. I believe that James Duckett was set up. It's interesting to note that those who tried to prove James innocent (including Melinda Duckett) died in tragic accidents.

The Bottom Line

The bottom line is...

So where is Trenton?

Where is the money - the $10,800 from Bank of America?

Where is the residue of the email on Melinda's computer?

It's all been examined. Nothing. Nothing!

All the accusations and they have found what?

Just like DCF. What did they find? Nothing!

What is the BIG EVIDENCE that PROVES that Trenton did NOT go out the window?

And all the while Trenton is OUT THERE SOMEWHERE

And someone who is alive and kicking knows where he is.

Some of you have lost a child. God has spared me that sorrow. But I have lost a dog. She ran away. I put fliers up everywhere, (I went to work after midnight to use the computer to make fliers). I was out on the streets all by myself stapling fliers to light poles. I pasted them up on convenience store windows. I got a call the next morning, that someone had found her and kept her in their yard. I raced to go pick her up, tears of joy streaming down my face. She was 1 1/2 miles away.

She was ONLY a dog. And later on some kids locked her in a car (by accident) and she suffocated in the hot car. I had given her to a friend to watch for me. I was at work and I felt this tremendous loss that overcame me. I called up my friend and was told she had died. She was ONLY a dog.

I can't imagine what it would be like to know that MY CHILD was OUT THERE SOMEWHERE. I would have taken every penny donated, worked every minute and hired as many professionals to look for MY CHILD. I would get in my car and go to as many places as I could and Look for MY CHILD. Anyone who wanted to help me FIND my Child, I would say bless you, bless you for helping me. Please help me find my child.

So, how was the trust fund money spent? Racing? trips? parties? why wasn't anyone hired? I'm sure there was plenty of money there. Why was the petition to bring in Equisearch NIXED by the Ducketts?

I don't personally see the URGENCY in the Ducketts. The only URGENCY I see is to quell those who are painting a different picture of Melinda, a different picture of the Ducketts.

What I personally believe, my opinion, is that the Ducketts know exactly where Trenton is, but, how they will be able to "find" him, without pointing to themselves?

Otherwise, where is the URGENCY?
