Trenton Duckett is missing since August 27, 2006. His mother Melinda Duckett is the prime suspect, but there is no evidence proving that Melinda did anything with or to Trenton. However, there is a handful of people who want to paint the picture of Melinda as an unfit mother and have persuaded the press to do their dirty work...just like they had DCF do their dirty work. Melinda Duckett was set up.
Saturday, August 26, 2006 Melinda wrote in her agenda "lunch?". This referred to the myspace posting from early Saturday morning (1:11 AM) from Chen to meet for lunch.
Melinda and Trenton arrived at the Eubanks' home in The Villages around 9:30 AM. Melinda did her week of laundry and Trenton played. Billy Eubank had some maintenance to take care of at their church during lunchtime. Nancy prepared lunch for the three of them. She always kept things at the house for Trenton. Melinda and Trenton took a two hour nap before they had their lunch. When Billy got back from the church he suggested eating out, but Nancy, Melinda and Trenton had already eaten. Melinda took her folded laundry and left with Trenton around 4:00 - 4:30 PM. Nancy and Billy went out to eat at a local restaurant after they had left.
Melinda received two myspace postings while she was at the Eubanks'. She usually brought her laptop with her but it doesn't appear that she went on the internet while she was at her grandparents'. However, at 4:20 she sent a message to Aurora about taking a little rest and relaxation (R and R). Apparently she didn't call Ryan Misener (RyBEAR) to come over Saturday night. However, according to the FDLE interview of Ryan Misener she called him Sunday morning to invite him to come to her house that night for a movie.
Here is the timeline created by Leesburg Police Department for Saturday August 26, 2006:
This is after she left the grandparents' in the Villages:
Leesburg police stated that they discovered Melinda purchased gas by finding a billing statement that arrived at an old post office box (that she no longer used) from BP after her death. This was a brand new credit card and this was the first and only statement that she received. However...the actual credit card was NEVER found. She had approximately 17 credit cards/debit cards but NO BP card. Melinda filled up her gas tank the day before for $32.46 using her debit card. (An Eclipse gets approximately 325 miles to a tank of gas) She still had plenty of money in her bank account ($726.14) so why would she add a new debt when she was trying to get rid of her debts. And why would she only purchase under $10 in gas and on a credit card, and a brand new one at that.
Speculation on my part: The actual purchase amount of gas was between $5 and $8. That sounds more like filling up a gas tank for a motorcycle. The old post office box was one she used in Bushnell where she lived with Josh Duckett. It appears to me that "someone" wanted to place Melinda in a certain area at that time. There also was a telephone call at 8:13 PM that the police have refused to identify on Melinda's timeline. It was stated that Josh Duckett spoke to Melinda that night. But the person who made that statement (Josh's best friend's wife Pamela Stout-Scott) was told to retract that statement (By a call to her mother-in-law - a friend of Carla Massero's).
Friday, August 25, 2006 Melinda wrote in her agenda about a money credit due her because of a status change for Trenton's daycare.
Again, it makes absolutely no sense for these entries into her agenda if she was planning on meeting up with someone on Saturday or Sunday to hide Trenton away from Josh. Where is the logic in these activies for a very methodical, organized person? So, the investigators have come to a very illogical conclusion in this missing child case.
Melinda's myspace entries for August 25, 2006:
Melinda called the Eubanks to pick up Trenton from daycare. She had a "slight emergency". An unnamed girl friend borrowed her dad's sportscar and it was overheating. She was down near Tampa and called Melinda to come get her. Melinda had experience driving cars that overheated (the old Neon she had with Josh) so she agreed to drive the sportscar back and the girl drove Melinda's car. Apparently Melinda also attended a small party where they played beer pong.
According to Melinda's checkbook register, she purchased gas for $32.46 with her bank debit card. This left her a checkbook balance of $726.14. She had already paid her rent to Windemere Villas for $405 on August 20, 2006. Now if she was thinking of "getting out of Dodge" why did she pay her September rent one week before Trenton went missing?
Wednesday, August 23, 2006 Melinda wrote in her agenda:
Run (keeping in shape for the police academy)
One Stop Referrals (job search)
Straighten out Avon/Olympia (Melinda was Avon Rep)
Billy Eubank wrote in later that Melinda had lost her daycare assistance - because she had lost her job at TruGreen. Now she had to pay the $125 in full without any reimbursement.
This was found in Melinda's trash
Here is Melinda's myspace for August 23, 2006
Here is an excerpt from Melinda's myspace from "Jason":
Here is Melinda's reply to Lissa about Friday night. Apparently Melinda was going to a party in Clearwater and wouldn't be back in time to hang with Lissa. (this was a girl she worked with at the Bank of America, along with Nikole Diaz)
Here is the Lake County Circuit Court information on Melinda's divorce from Josh Duckett. Note the dates:
Here it is Wednesday, only four days before Trenton goes missing. There is a "very mad crowd at Melinda" over there in Sumter County where Josh Duckett lives. Josh had been to see his father in prison on August 12, 2006 and found out that Melinda showed James Duckett the copy of the threatening email, and that his father was paying money to Melinda for Trenton's child support because Josh was not paying. Josh caught up the child support for the July 12 restraining order hearing, but did NOT pay July's payment nor August's payment. Why wouldn't he pay? Especially since he was in contempt for non-payment before? Why was there such a "mad crowd" over in Sumter County? Melinda was having "issues" with Josh since August 12 (and the threatening email July 3, 2006 when Josh's mother was served the contempt of court for non payment of child support papers). Melinda was trying to go by the "book". She had her attorney file papers incorporating the restraining order with her divorce.
Melinda wanted to hire someone to "talk some sense into Josh", but it never happened. She kept Trenton close to her at all times. And in her own tearful words to Billy Eubank, "I was suppose to protect him (Trenton) but he was taken right out from under my nose".
Tuesday, August 22, 2006 Melinda's agenda:
Call Int of Publics (Publix?) for deadline on apps (application?)
One Stop before 10 - jobcore
John? (Fiveash) 7:30 pm Ramsh. (Ramshackles Restaurant)
Melinda Duckett's Myspace entries for August 22, 2006
This is a myspace posting to Kyle Bowden from Chen's sister Anna telling him she was coming to Florida around the time Trenton went missing. Police believed Melinda handed Trenton off to Anna but they were mistaken.
Melinda wrote in her agenda that she was meeting John at Ramshackles. This is John Fiveash who worked with her delivering newspapers for the Villages Sun. He was one of the many people she contacted to get $5,000 to protect her and Trenton because she was having issues with Josh Duckett. (She was contacting any and everyone after August 12, 2006 when Josh had visited his father in prison) Fiveash told Melinda he wanted to meet up with her to discuss it face to face. He suggested Ramshackles as he remembered she told him she lived in that area. Melinda then told him to just come to the apartment. Here is John Fiveash's statement to Leesburg Police on August 31, 2006:
Then on September 6, Fiveash went back to the detectives and gave an additional statement.
After reading the statement and listening to the actual audio recordings of John Fiveash, I noticed that he worked in Ocala, Florida within a short distance from where I live. Here is what I wrote on a private forum regarding my meeting with John Fiveash.
I have spoken to John Fiveash a number of times. He says he was curious as to why Josh Duckett wasn't showing any "urgency" in finding Trenton. He wanted to discuss this with the Leesburg Police but they basically blew him off. During the Casey Anthony trial he called me again and wanted to arrange a meeting but it never happened.
This is only one day's activity of readers of this website. People from all over the world, including Korea, Japan, Viet Nam, the Philippines, Hawaii, South America, Europe, Canada, Great Britain, Australia, Africa, the Mid East and the United States have spent a lot of time viewing all the articles and documents on my blog "Was It Really Worth It". Thank you ever so much. Together we can help solve this mystery and learn the truth.
I appreciate all the support from other websites. It blew me away when author Dave Lucas who had previously maligned Melinda Duckett in his article "Melinda Duckett Home Business" http://melindaduckettshomebusiness.blogspot.com/ had a complete turnaround in his opinion of the case after reading this blog and created a button labeled "start" on his website that when you click on it, it brings you directly to my website here.
Websleuths is a very popular forum for crime sleuths which I joined in September 2006 and posted as Maytruthprevail. A fellow poster sindydee who had not been involved with the Trenton Duckett case until recently sent me these encouraging words which were music to my ears.
Every telephone conversation that I have had with Nancy and Billy Eubank over these past 5 years has ended with a prayer: Jesus Christ knows what has happened to our precious grandson Trenton. My prayer is that before we die...
Fiorio (?) 12:30 @ Chili's (job interview? not on any friends list)
4:30 Old Mill Playhouse (movie theater - probably with Chris Pearce)
Below is her post on GhettoMario's myspace. Guessing maybe she met him at Chili's.
Here is the expanded version of Melinda's message to Nicholas (Nick Krystaf) Nikole's statement referred to a conversation on the night of August 12, 2006 the same day Josh visited his father in prison.
Sunday, August 20, 2006 Melinda wrote in her agenda:
"Pierce" (Chris Pearce)
They went to a movie together and Chris helped her move this office cabinet into her closet.
Here is the comment on Myspace about it:
Then she posts these items on her myspace:
In her myspace post to Chris, she jokes about Trenton not being able to complain if she should move some of her things into his closet. That's because he doesn't say a lot of words, not that she is going to get rid of him. This is 7 days before his disappearance.
