Eight Years Later, No Answers in Disappearance of Lindsey Baum
by Rachael Trost

Monday marks eight years of lost memories for Melissa Baum.

Her daughter Lindsey should soon be celebrating her 19th birthday.

She should have just finished her first year out of high school, coming home for summer break perhaps.
 
If you have any information regarding Lindsey’s case, you are urged to call the Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Department at (360) 249-3711.

LINDSEY BAUM, 10, GOES MISSING; PERSONS OF INTEREST LIE TO INVESTIGATORS

Melissa Baum had moved to Washington state from Tennessee to close the door on the trauma of her divorce from Lindsey Baum's father.

McCleary, a small town of 1,500 people west of Olympia, Washington seemed to offer the peace and hope Melissa wanted for herself, and her children Lindsey and Lindsey's older brother Josh.

The kids loved it there, especially boisterous little Lindsey.

"Full of life, from the day she was born, we used to tease her that she came out of the womb talking," said Melissa. "She was just active, bright, happy, 10-year-old little girl waiting for her 11th birthday."

But mom Melissa says a shadow fell over Lindsey's apparently bright future when her daughter had a frightening premonition just a day before she would disappear.

"She said 'Mom, I just have this really bad feeling that something bad's going to happen,' and I said 'Like what?'" said Melissa. "And she said 'I don't know, I just have a feeling.' She knew something was coming, but she didn't know what. And the next night she was gone."
Just a few hours earlier, Lindsey and her brother Josh walked a short distance from their house to the home of her girlfriend Micayla. And along the way a family friend told Josh to go back after he had a fight with Lindsey over a bike.

"And he walked in the door not five minutes after that, mad that Lindsey left his bike," said Melissa.

Lindsey would head home shortly afterward, upset that Micayla was not allowed to stay over at her place that night.

"It was a Friday night about 9:30 when she left her friend's home, and she was going to walk to her home," said Grays County Sheriff Rick Scott. "Her walk would have taken her about seven, eight blocks to get to her house. She never showed up."

Lindsey was last seen on the night of June 26, 2009. Rick Scott was the undersheriff at Grays Harbor County Sheriff's Office, the day Lindsey disappeared.

"At about 11 o'clock her mom called 911 and reported her missing, so that began a search of the local immediate area by the McCleary Police Department, some volunteer firemen and her mother and some friends," said Scott. "We would maintain that search-and-rescue component for the next 10 days, and that grew to involve over 240 people, ground searchers, air search and rescue, dogs, horseback."

Days later police divers desperately searched local waterways, and the entire population of McCleary, 1,500 people, became involved, all caught up in the mysterious disappearance of Lindsey Baum.

"Our job was to make contact at every residence along that route," said investigator Polly Thomas.

Polly Thomas was one of the original investigators working closely with Rick Scott. They both wondered how in such a small town a little girl could vanish with no one knowing how, or why.

Is it possible that this 10-year-old just fled the scene?

"No. I think within 24 hours of all that taking place, I think it was pretty clear that that was not what happened," said Thomas. "She could not have done it alone, let me put it that way. She had left her cellphone at home, she had no money on her."

"The only thing we've really been able to rule out is that she ran away," said Sheriff Rick Scott.

While the FBI, police and the sheriff's office continue their investigation, little Lindsey Baum remains missing, feared murdered after eight long years gone.

Her traumatized mom Melissa wonders why. She recalls something truly ominous.

"Less than two weeks before she disappeared we'd watched the movie 'Taken,' and when it was over I remember her saying 'Gosh, mom, does stuff like that really happen?' And I said 'Yes, Lindsey, why do you think I get so mad? Why do you think I insist on knowing where you are at all times? Because there are horrible people in this world that do horrible things,'" said Melissa.

"The disappearance of a child in McCleary in particular had a huge impact on that entire community," said Sheriff Scott. "It literally took the innocence of that community and erased it that night."

Over the course of the investigation, how many persons of interest were developed and looked into?

"At the height we had maybe 40 people who would have the title of 'person of interest,'" said Scott.

And as they look closer, police soon hear about something very strange.

"There was two incidents in the week prior to her disappearing," said Melissa Baum. "The girls had been up at the park in the bathroom and they said a man came in on them, but then he left and took off on a bike. The other incident was her and her friend said that they thought somebody was following them. A man in a white car."

Surveillance video from a local gas station shows a white vehicle matching the description close to the time Lindsey disappeared, but cops still can't connect any dots in the stalking story.

And two men continue to pique investigators' interest.

One, they say, was staying in a house near Maple Street, where Lindsey was last seen walking home. Investigators aren't publicly naming him.

"The initial conversation with him is that he had never left the house that night, he didn't know anything, he didn't know Lindsey and that was the end of it," said Sheriff Rick Scott.

But later, through witnesses and other evidence, cops would determine that his story was a total fabrication.

"So he lied to us about what he did that night and he lied to us about where he was at 9:30 on the evening of June 26," said Scott.

And a similar lie also surfaced when detectives focused on a second man on their list: Tim Hartman, a local business owner who made a categorical statement to police during early interviews.

"He denied being in McCleary during the evening hours when she disappeared," said Scott.

If he wasn't in town, Hartman couldn't possibly have been involved in Lindsey's disappearance.

"We would later find, again, video surveillance that showed that was not true," said Sheriff Scott.

Surveillance footage tells no lies. Hartman told police he was out of the area doing some training and was later doing an ambulance call out as a volunteer emergency medical technician. But video shows Hartman in a store in McCleary making a purchase on June 26, 2009, the day Lindsey disappeared. He leaves, heading toward Maple Street. His own shop is on the street where she was last seen.

"He was in McCleary at exactly that time that she would have disappeared," said Scott.
Investigators searched Hartman's property.

"He was somebody who actually contacted Lindsey's mother that night and was helping her, actually had her in his car and was helping her look around areas that she knew Lindsey frequented," said Scott.

Despite the questions surrounding his whereabouts, investigators are not officially naming Hartman a "suspect."

Hartman has told local reporters he has no idea what happened to Lindsey.

"He claims that he had nothing to do with her disappearance, that he merely forgot that he got back that early. He thought it was later than the video would show," said Sheriff Scott. "It remains very concerning to us that he would appear to conveniently have forgotten the most important time of the day that we were certainly focused on."

Though police say Hartman was initially cooperative with the early investigation, they tell Crime Watch Daily he no longer will speak with detectives. We wondered if he would speak with us.

Crime Watch Daily visited the jewelry store that Tim Hartman owns. To be clear he is not a suspect, but his story doesn't line up, it turned out to be false. Was this just an unintentional memory lapse or is Tim Hartman hiding something? Crime Watch Daily set out to find out.

Tim Hartman declined to speak with Crime Watch Daily. However, he has told police he unintentionally gave them false information.

"In his case, there were several things that proved not to be true with what he initially told us," said Sheriff Scott. "That being said there's no evidence to point to anybody's having any involvement in her disappearance."

Today Hartman remains a person of interest in the disappearance of Lindsey Baum.

"Whoever did this needs to understand that we're not going to go away. This case will remain an active investigation, and we're going to continue to work this until we find her and bring her home," said Scott.

"I imagine any parent has felt for a moment when you lose sight of your child in a grocery store, or they get lost in the mall, or they wander off in the neighborhood -- that's been going on for almost eight years," said Lindsey's mother Melissa Baum. "That feeling doesn't go away with time." 

There is a $35,000 reward for information that leads to Lindsey Baum's whereabouts, and the arrest and conviction of the person responsible. Anyone with any information is urged to call the Grays Harbor Sheriff's Office at (360) 249-3711.

This was the first case I started following. I remember how many of us sat here into the early morning going over every possible clue and nothing was ever found to answer the question of what happened to Lindsey.

It's good to see Crime Watch and her Mom are still keeping her case alive. Someone knows or suspects who is responsible and hopefully one day we will all know.

Could brothers in life-long sex abuse investigation be tied to missing children?
Aug 23, 2017


EXCERPT

There was no immediate connection between three Seattle brothers who police believed collected child pornography for decades and local missing person cases.

But at least one law enforcement officer is investigating the possibility. The Gray's Harbor Sheriff told KIRO 7 he's investigating whether the brothers have any connection to the 2009 disappearance of Lindsey Baum in southwest Washington.

Baum flier found at family home

"Their writings express desires to kill children," said Capt. Mike Edwards, who leads SPD's Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task force. "It's very clear that these three individuals have an obsession with young female children, they've had this obsession for most if not all of their lives, and they acted on it."

People following the story on social media have mentioned cold cases and years-old missing child cases.
 
Among those cases is Lindsey Baum, who disappeared from McCleary while walking back from a friend’s house in 2009. The 10-year-old’s disappearance sparked a nationwide investigation.

McCleary is a roughly 30-minute drive from Shelton, where the brothers also owned a property. Charles – and his now deceased brother Donald – remained in the Shelton home until 2016.

Grays Harbor County Sheriff Rick Scott confirmed to KIRO 7 News that a flier about Baum was found in the Shelton home, but there is no known connection between the brothers and the disappearance of Baum. Police are investigating.

“When we heard of the link to the Shelton property, and its proximity to McCleary, and the nature of the paper work they found at the [Seattle home] … We immediately began to see if there’s anything that would link to our investigation,” Scott told KIRO 7 News. “The Lindsey Baum case has been and will be a priority until we find closure or find Lindsey safe. We’ve worked on the case every day in some shape or form.”

According to Scott, detectives intend to do an extensive search of the Shelton property, but it will take a large team as it sits on 14 to 17 acres of land.

Cadaver dogs will join search of 3 brothers' Shelton home in sex abuse investigation
by: KIRO 7 News Staff Updated: Aug 25, 2017 - 6:05 AM
http://www.kiro7.com/news/local/cadaver-dogs-will-join-search-of-3-brothers-shelton-home-in-sex-abuse-investigation/597578846

After detectives searched for days at the North Seattle house where three brothers allegedly spent most of their lives abusing children, the investigation now turns to a 17-acre property in Shelton.

Charles Emery, 82, Thomas Emery, 80, and Edwin Emery, 79, were arrested and charged with possessing child pornography.

Detectives said they discovered a staggering amount of child pornography, along with children's worn clothing, underwear, small shoes, toys and movies. Investigators believe each of the men spent the majority of their lives sexually abusing children.

 
But it was an unearthed “manifesto” about Satanic rituals, kidnapping, raping and killing girls that led detectives to dig under sheds, searching for evidence of potential murder, detectives said. Charles’ writings were found buried and partially burned -- along with a child's hat.

Their search extended from the home in the Green Lake neighborhood to another home the brothers owned 90 miles away in Shelton.
 
The Emery's now-deceased brother, Donald, remained in the Shelton home until 2016. Grays Harbor County Sheriff Rick Scott told KIRO 7 News that detectives intend to do an extensive search of the Shelton property; cadaver dogs and the Department of Homeland Security will help with the search.

Investigators look for possible missing children connections to Emery brothers child porn case
Posted 4:32 PM, August 24, 2017, by Steve Kiggins, Updated at 05:33PM, August 24, 2017

MONTESANO, Wash. – Some of the evidence police collected at the three Emery brothers’ Seattle home has led some to wonder if any local children who have gone missing could be connected to the elderly men.

Neighbors in the small town of McCleary say old wounds have now been ripped open over the case of 10-year-old Lindsey Baum who disappeared in 2009.

Investigators from multiple agencies told Q13 News no concrete evidence linking the Emery brothers to Lindsey’s disappearance exists so far.
 
“It’s never going to be a cold case, it’s something that’s always going to be active,” said Grays Harbor County Sheriff Rick Scott.

Scott has worked Lindsey’s case since the beginning, but connecting her case to the Emery brothers has so far not panned out.

Over the years police have identified several persons of interest in her case, but nobody has been criminally charged.

And since Lindsey disappeared so close to the Emerys' Shelton property, local law enforcement vow to dig deep to find any possible connection to Lindsey.

“Lindsey certainly fits their victim profile and it’s something that we’re going to try to look further into and see where it takes us,” said Scott.

Lindsey’s mother told Q13 News she was too upset for an on-camera interview but posted a statement to her Facebook page that said in part:

“I am devastated at the thought of these monsters being involved in Lindsey’s abduction. But at this point it’s too soon to know. I pray for answers not only for myself but for other mothers and families going through this nightmare too.”
