another interesting (yet sad) case... thanks for sharing it...

did u say they found his body under the burnt-out bed? why would they (seemingly) attempt to hide his body but not her body, if they were just going to torch the place :S something is weird/odd about this case. sadly, we will probably never know the truth,

You're welcome.

Good question. This case is really strange. My guess is that whoever did this tried to make believe that the father killed his wife and took the kids with him, that<s why they tried to hide his body. I could be wrong, but that<s what I believe.

Very sad story which haunted on some way me. My theory that they are dead or sold for sex trafficing by drug dealers who killed Freeman family. I hope that they are still alive, but not free, live in torture of narco dealers and in world of prostitution.

Just read this thread for the first time... I wonder if the father was found under the water bed mattress, because the murderers were searching for something, and ransacked the place before setting fire to it.. In the process cutting open the mattress to get the water out and it fell over his body as they searched under it...

Just a thought...

BTW... whatever happened to JonathanVanErich?...

I've been reading about this case and I'll continue to research it, but right off the bat, I must say that it's absolutely appalling and unacceptable that authorities didn't locate the body of the father!
It's glaringly obvious that there's people in authority who have no business being in authority!
The fire was early morning, and several vehicles were there, but regardless, authorities should have approached the situation as though every person who lived there WAS THERE!
The fire marshall didn't discover the body...the investigators didn't discover the body...the coroner didn't discover the body...
I don't know who in authority was present on the scene that day, but what a disgrace to every aspect of an investigation!

It appears to me that whoever killed these people, and abducted the girls, knew them.

Couldn't agree more Regi.  It is ridiculous that three teams didn't discover a body that was found within minutes later by a lay person.  Something more than fishy about that.  It should be in the hands of the FBI, local authorities should remain under suspicion until this is solved as their behaviour is clearly suspicious from the outset.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

It's indeed a red flag. Authorities shrugged it off and that also bothers me... and I question whether there was an inquiry re: this circumstance. Of course, there definitely should have been because it's protocol, but if no documentation exists which reflects that such an inquiry was ever made, then that furthers my apprehension regarding the proper handling of this case. However, it's such an outrageous circumstance, that I'd still be apprehensive.

From the Unsolved Mysteries episode:
Capt. Jim Herman- Craig Co. Sheriff's Dept.: " I believe that the Freeman girl could possibly be involved. I believe that there was a great deal of friction in the Freeman household because of reports that Danny and his daughter did not get along well at all and hadn't for some time. That's not something we can overlook."

Of course, there was no comment re: the reason his own office warranted investigation re: their possible involvement because of any other existing friction. Also, his comment is pure speculation, and it contradicts the evidence that IS there!

It's blatantly obvious that the search immediately following the fire was not thorough- it's a fact that can't be denied, and despite all evidence to the contrary, authorities appeared satisfied and quick to conclude that the father was not a victim.
Of course, those facts together in consideration of the tension between local law enforcement and the father calls into question the basis of that conclusion.
Apparently, Capt. Herman's now decided that the daughter is the most likely perp.
Again for emphasis, that conclusion is pure speculation, and actually contradicts the evidence.

OSBI agent Steve Nutter on investigation of the local law enforcement: "We utilized several techniques, one of which was the polygraph. (Here we go!)  All consented to the polygraph examination and all cleared themselves as a result of those examinations." :whistle:
And...: "Ashely Freeman might have something to do with the deaths of Danny and Kathy. However, it's been 15 months since the incident and I find it difficult to believe that the girls by themselves could hide out that long and not be found." (What utter brilliance! Never mind that there's no evidence in support of that notion to begin with!)

Also brow raising...the OSBI agent stated that it was "because it was such a concern to the residents of the area we looked into the possibility that the deputies could be involved with the deaths of Danny and Kathy."

What?! A reason to look into that possibility already existed and is enough on it's own to require such an investigation. It shouldn't have to take the concern of the residents!
Momma mia!

Unfortunately, I see many possible reasons that the investigation has gone nowhere.

If anyone (like me) missed the 8:00 PM airing, Investigation Discovery will re-play the episode at 11:00 PM, CST.

In the ID episode, it was when Bible's parents got to the scene of the fire that they were informed that an investigation wouldn't begin until the arrival of an OSBI agent (Nutter), and the reason for that was because that's what they do when there's a conflict.
So, Agent Nutter wasn't called due to "concern from the residents in the area". It was because THERE WAS A CONFLICT, and it's PROPER procedure in an investigation!
To me, the way Nutter explained the reason for his involvement demonstrates bias.

There was no mention of Bible's purse having been located in the rubble, and I'm wondering why such pertinent info would be left out.

Info. was that Freeman's boyfriend arrived at the Freeman home at 9:30 PM. It's been previously reported that that's when he'd left, but either way, he apparently didn't stay long.

Freeman had been saving money for a vehicle, and there's been discrepancies as to the actual amount she'd saved, but the main thing is that at least a few people knew she'd kept her savings hidden in the freezer... and it wasn't found to be there after the fire.
I think it's possible that she'd either no longer kept it there, or had it somewhere else at the time of the fire, but until other info is learned, it remains a concern to me that it wasn't where it was believed it should have been.

The homicides/arson occurred 10 days before the deadline (Jan. 8, 2000) to file a wrongful death suit re: the death of the Freeman son.

I wonder- and I'm completely serious, if the bodies of missing girls could have still been in the debris after the second search. I realize that a second search conducted after one body was already missed should be diligent, but I must say, considering certain aspects of this case, I really can't help but wonder.

Jeremy Hurst - was probably the cause of it. He was probably involved in drug dealing, judging by the accusations that are flying around in this case, probably owed a lot of money...So the people he owed wanted to hurt him. They went after his girlfriend, found her parents, killed them, burnt them to cover evidence. Then they went to the next place, his friends house where they found the girls, abducted them, either killed them or sold them for sex trafficking. The police may have chosen to overlook the body of the father because of a feud and not really wanting to have to investigate when it could bring up 'rumors' as it had anyway. It is easier to fabricate a story that sounds convincing that to actually investigate into something they really didn't want to.
