Have the authorities checked around with the Amish community(s) near by, if that's one of their conspiracies?

Does anyone know what she bought at the grocery store? I'm kinda hung up here. I know what I buy for myself is different from what I would buy if one of my kids were with me.

I am extrapolating and guestimating that she may of had cyclothiamic disorder A.K.A "borderline personality disorder" (Emphasis on my extrapolation. I'm a cognitive neuroscience major with a minor in psychology. I'm not a medical practitioner and am unfit to make diagnosis, but I'm going to lay out my thinking below anyways) 1. Intense, unstable relationship categorized by cycles of idealization and devaluation of the partner. (not necessary for a diagnosis, but often observed) 2. Chronic feeling of emptiness, lack of belonging, externalized to partner and child in her case. 3. a history of suicidality. (again not needed for a diagnosis, but often observed sometimes with self harm) I have heard of cyclothiamic disorder as described as "bipolar type 3" with mood swings happening on a day to day basis rather than happening on a semi monthly basis. thus it goes severely underdiagnosed or mistaken as unipolar depression.

There was a thread on Twitter from someone claiming to be related to the mother. They claimed the father was very abusive! I hope she had a distant friend or relative who saved that boy.

Jennifer Lynn McRoberts That’s literally never come up and legitimate investigations. The opposite in fact. So maybe don’t believe random strangers on Twitter?

I think she killed him and when she say he is with someone who will love him and take care of him I think she means God

My thought is that she killed him. 'he is somewhere safe with people who love him' (To past relatives? maybe a mom or grandmother?) 'never found' (body is hidden or spirit is gone with her)
