One Day...August 26, 2006

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).

The Plot thickens.

One Day...August 25, 2006

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?

One Day...August 24, 2006

Thursday, August 24, 2006 and life is as usual. I wonder what was going on in the Duckett camp?
