Something New

In recent weeks I have been contacted by a man who lives in the western United States. We have never met, but have 'teamed up' via the computer to work on several cold cases. I have nicknamed him 'Neo' and want to introduce him to my readers because you will be hearing a lot more about Neo in the near future. I will tell everyone now that his initials are J. and B. - for the future, when things start hopping and he may need some backing as far as psychic work is concerned.

Neo doesn't claim to be 'psychic' like most psychics are. That's okay with me because I'm not like most psychics either.

While much of my work involves dreams and visions; Neo has flashes of scenes which he equates to 'videos' for a lack of a better explanation. He also sees and speaks to departed spirits. I have classified him as an 'Ethereal Visionary.'

I sent Neo an email earlier this evening pertaining to Teresa's case. Here's a copy of what I asked him:

J.B. / Neo,

I need you to do something for me and I don't want to taint the case by saying too much, so all I'm giving you at this time is this:

Look at the picture and tell me what you feel or see: TLB

She is missing:

1. Where was she when she disappeared - what state if possible?

2. Was the date she disappeared of any importance?

3. Was she taken north, south, east or west before her abductor disposed of her?

4. There was one lone footprint left behind: What left the print - was it a tennis shoe; dress shoe; hiking boot; work boot; cowboy boot; or something else?

5. Is her disappearance connected to any other unsolved cases in the general vicinity of where she disappeared from?

6. Is there a common denominator in her disappearance, if so is it - Where she worked / where she lived / where her husband worked / her looks / her name / something else ??

7. Was anything else 'taken' at the time of her disappearance? If possible name item[s]:

8. Do you feel or see any numbers around this woman? If so, please list:

This is an active case. I am working on her page now and will post it soon. When it's finished I will send you a copy but before that I want to keep your mind clear so as to tune in to things that may be needed. Thanks Neo. I appreciate your help, and will await your reply.

Neo's Reply

Bonnie,

I tried to concentrate on the picture you sent when I went and laid down, but feel that I might have been trying too hard. It was kinda busy around the house as well, so I think I was cramming things together. I saw a few things, but right now I am not really sure that they are pertinent.

Kentucky

A male, mid 20's. Short blond hair, white t-shirt, blue shorts.

In a closet, a pair of womens dress shoes. They were on the floor neatly with some other shoes. There were several dresses above the shoes, hanging.

A water fountain. It looked like something you might see in a Chinese restaurant. It had several large decorative "bowls" about a foot apart. They were stacked, and when the water filled the top bowl, it trickled into the second, and then the third, and so on. The top bowl was smaller than the next bowl below, and continued that way down. It was made of stone or concrete, and was outside. Perhaps in a garden area.

An older green car with a white top. Maybe a Cutlass, or something like that. By a chain link fence. Parked by the road??

A white mailbox. It appeared to be rural, and was mounted on a 4x4 post on the side of the road. It said "R. Blum." I don't know, I have no clue.

Theresa

North-East.

I am pretty sure all of this is gibberish, there doesn't seem to be a huge pull on me when I looked at the picture earlier tonight.

I didn't spend much time on it either, so who knows. I am going to run out into the shop and make sure everyone is taken care of, and then I will be able to go from there.

Neo

What Have We Got?

I don't think Neo's answer was as much 'gibberish' as he thought it was:

The photo is of Teresa Butler, so he was 100% correct about the name, although he spelled it a little differently.

His viewing of a closet gives us the answer to where Teresa was when she disappeared. She was at home, so again, he is correct.

An older green car with a white top. Maybe a Cutlass, or something like that. By a chain link fence. Parked by the road?? Here we have something that I cannot answer. I don't know what color Teresa's car was, and I don't know what color or kind of vehicle her abductor was driving. If this rings bells for anyone in my reading audience, please drop me a line and let me know.

SHIRLEY RESPONDS TO THIS PAGE:

Sept. 18th, 2006: "Bonnie,

Hi, I'm Shirley, Mary's sister. I want to thank you so much for the page on Teresa. You are very informative and I just want you to know I get it. About the car, is it possible it could have been a Nova? At one time I owned a dark green nova with a white top. It has been years ago but I lived in Dexter when I got rid of it. Someone did have such a car that lived either in Risco or around Risco, so I have heard. I worked with Teresa for a while at Wal-Mart in Dexter, and she was a friend of my daughter's."

************Shirley's letter continued below *******************

Back to Neo: -- Kentucky: Well, he missed the state by a little bit, but was headed in the correct direction.

North-East: We can't say for certain what direction Teresa's abductor went when he left her home. However, if I were conducting a search for her, I'd go north-east, and I'd look near and in water.... perhaps near a bridge that has a rocked embankment leading to the water.

A white mailbox. It appeared to be rural, and was mounted on a 4x4 post on the side of the road. It said "R. Blum." I don't know, I have no clue: / Mary told me the area that Teresa lived in was farm land, so I'm guessing it is a rural area and that the houses do have mail boxes mounted on posts along the road. Now whether the Butler mailbox is mounted on a 4x4 post or not, I cannot say ..... but someone familiar with the area can, so come on, send me the answer.

It said "R. Blum." / I don't know this name either but when I checked the dictionary for Blum I found -- Leon Blum, 1872 - 1950, socialist statesman: The victim's middle name is Lynn ..... similar to Leon:

A male, mid 20's. Short blond hair, white t-shirt, blue shorts. / Mysde's son does in fact have blond hair and is in his mid twenties.

A water fountain. It looked like something you might see in a Chinese restaurant. It had several large decorative "bowls" about a foot apart. They were stacked, and when the water filled the top bowl, it trickled into the second, and then the third, and so on. The top bowl was smaller than the next bowl below, and continued that way down. It was made of stone or concrete, and was outside. Perhaps in a garden area.

This 'water fountain' reminds me of something I have seen at the WalMart here in my area. It was outside in the garden area. I wonder if they had the same thing in the WalMart where Teresa worked? Also, Teresa's hair and eyes are so dark, she almost has an "oriental" look to her .... much like my former sister-in-law, J. 'Dexter'- Martin had.

************Shirley's letter continues *******************

The water fountain, I know exactly the type you mentioned. Your page is so appreciated and informative I can't thank you and Neo enough. Just wanted you to know that. Great job.

Respectfully,

Shirley

A Strange Experience

My friend Mysde #1/ Sindee now lives more than an hours drive away from me ... in Jackson, Ohio. We don't get to see each other much anymore but we still talk over the phone and on the computer.

Friday night [Sept.15th] we both had a very strange experience at WalMart stores. Mine in Parkersburg, West Virginia, and hers in Jackson.

I was just turning from the meat counter and saw a woman approaching me that at first glance I thought was my cousin Mary. I actually started to speak to her, but then remembered that Mary had died in July -- and besides that we had not spoken to one another for several years before her death, due to some lies she told on me that went a long ways toward discrediting my word and my work.

The experience sort of spooked me ever so slightly, because the woman looked so much like Mary.

I came home around midnight and called Mysde after I got inside and settled down for the night. She had something to tell me.

She and her mother 'Shirley' had been over to the WalMart in Jackson, and as Mysde turned to say something to her mother, she saw a woman whom she thought was my cousin Mary! Just as I had done, Mysde started to speak to the woman and call her Mary, only to remember that Mary was dead, and had been for several months!

In Mysde's case, the woman noticed her startled expression and kept looking at her, but in mine the woman didn't seem to notice my shock.

Another strange thing about these experiences is the fact that they took place at precisely the same time ..... nearly a hundred miles apart in two different WalMart stores.

When I went to check my email, I had a message from 'Mary' who had written to me quite some time ago and asked me to look into Teresa's case. She had said that she and her sister 'Shirley' were looking for Teresa and trying to help the family.

And so, this page is for Mary and Shirley. Thank you for writing. Best always,

Bonnie

Wild Bill Hickok?

Neo and I were working something a few days ago -- before I started on this case, and he saw a man whom he thought was Wild Bill Hickok. It wasn't. The man wore jeans, cowboy boots, a black and white checkered, flannel shirt and a red cap:

I didn't say too much. I figured Neo needed to prove this to himself; but when he said he thought it was Wild Bill Hickok [until he did some research] I thought of "Wild Bill" but Hickok had nothing to do with it.

My reasoning? Well there's two things. 1. ball caps were not invented in Hickok's time. 2. I'm not sure they had flannel shirts back in those days either, and it would have been unusual to see a man wearing a checkered shirt during that time period also. Wild Bill owns both, and I have seen him wear both.

Something else. The blond haired young man wearing a t-shirt and shorts. Now I mentioned that Mysde's son fits this description, and perhaps some think he might have been involved in Teresa's abduction. I do not believe this is correct, and I'll tell you why.

Shorts and t-shirts would not have been appropriate apparel at the time of Teresa's late January disappearance. Therefore, I conclude that Neo saw this young, blond haired man because it represents the time period in which the idea was formed .... the time period in which Wild Bill and Cindy B. were 'visiting' her son in Arkansas.

If anything else comes in concerning Teresa's case, I'll be back ....

Missing Woman's Husband's World Is Caving In

By: CJ Cassidy

Dale Butler

RISCO, Mo. - It's been almost nine months since Teresa Butler simply disappeared. Her husband reported the 35-year-old missing when he returned home from his overnight job, back in January.

Now Dale Butler has even more problems, and he's turning to you for help. "My little one says daddy our house is broke. I say daddy don't have no money to fix it," Dale Butler says. He says his world began crumbling around him when his wife disappeared in January.

But the heavy, unforgiving rains in New Madrid county last month, brought more of his world caving in. "I've got pride.I don't really like to ask people but I know my son and he don't need to be here. There's bacteria and mildew, and he's already taking breathing treatments for asthma," he says.

Butler doesn't have insurance, so for now he keeps the boys beds covered up hoping to keep them dry. "There's mildew, but I don't want to leave in case my wife comes home," he says.

"He wants to be here when she walks back in the door," Paula Pearson says. She like other townsfolk in Risco supports Butler's unwavering beliefs. Pearson also spearheads a long term recovery team that helps people affected by disasters - and hopes Dale's next.

"We just wanted to help Dale raise enough money to fix the house back up, so when Teresa comes home she'll know dale's taken good care of the boys and everything," she says. "Miracles happen everyday- that's what I'm hoping for," Butler says.

In the meantime Butler holds his kids close, and gently explains to them they may have lost their bedroom and many of their toys, but they'll never lose their parent's love.

To add to his troubles, Butler's currently out of work after hurting his back in a recent car crash.

If you'd like to help the family there's a fund set up at the Sun Security Bank in Risco.

You can also call Paula Pearson at (573) 396-5511, if you'd like to volunteer labor or materials.

The New Madrid County Sheriff says investigators are still following up on every lead they get, and Butler's also set to share his story on the Montel Williams show in New York at the end of the month.

This concludes my work on Teresa's case -- at least for tonight.
