Well, I talked to the investigators today, and got an update on the testing process. The bottom line is that it will take another four to six weeks to get an answer. There were a few snags in the procedure, just had to do with timing of things in the world. It was nobody’s fault, and I want to assure you that the Hayward Police Department has been excellent. They have been very caring and respectful, and they are going above and beyond to do the best job possible.
The bone is still in Arizona, and apparently there are just a few procedures before it will be sent on to Virginia. When you get right down to it, it has probably been safer in Arizona over the last few days.
I am okay. The delay is okay. Everything happens in its time, and I still need a little time I think.
But anyway, I guess this means we will be once again gathering on the anniversary of Michaela’s kidnapping. Perhaps it will be the last gathering of this sort. Perhaps it won’t. But we will be meeting at the market where Michaela was kidnapped, on the date and at the time she was kidnapped. That is November 19th, which is a Monday this year. I know that’s inconvenient and many can’t come because of it, but it has always been on the day, at the time, at the place, of the kidnapping, and that’s how it falls this year. More details later.
