Sherry, yes, I was referring to Elisa's defense attorney. I figured he would say whatever was necessary, but if he's telling the truth, it's better than if they stuck her up in the attic. I agree, there's alot of people talking about the abuse, so it must have been happening. You have a good point though, maybe Zahra went up in the attic to get away from them.

Police getting medical records of missing North Carolina girl

By the CNN Wire Staff
October 19, 2010 3:27 a.m. EDT

(CNN) -- North Carolina authorities have been in contact with Zahra Baker's biological mother in Australia and have asked for the medical records of the missing 10-year-old girl.

"We're in the process of getting medical information from Australia and we're in the process of getting medical records here," said Clyde Deal, the deputy police chief of Hickory, North Carolina, on Monday.

Officials did not specify what kind of medical records they were seeking. But often, investigators ask for access to dental records for help with identification of bodies.

Burke County Sheriff John McDevitt has said that Zahra's disappearance is being investigated as a homicide.

Zahra was reported missing October 9 and no one other than a family member has reported seeing her since September 25.

Ha! You are on the ball, J4A! Good morning, Merry Sunshine!

In that link you provided they do the video segment of the Nancy Grace show concerning the 911 call by the stepmom for the brush fire and the dad reporting his daughter missing.

Here is the transcript of last night's NG show where the whole show was about Zahra:

Sherry, it is very possible she went to the attic to get away from them. There's just been too many reports of Zahra's abuse for me to think she wasn't suffering severe abuse - the school, classmates, friends, family and neighbors. So very sad, I hope there are some answers today.

This dawned on me earlier.....if the parents were putting her up in the attic, the neighbors would here more than just Zahra moving around, which is the sound they figured was just squirrels in the attic. If she was being put in the attic as a punishment, the neighbors would probably hear voices of either the parents or of Zahra, and they probably would hear Zahra crying. Since the neighbors only mentioned what sounds like squirrels moving around sounds, I'm thinking Sherry is right and maybe Zahra went up there on her own.

I found this blog, with some interesting thoughts.

http://refugeesunleashed.net/post-1028680.html

The first post on that page:

here's a link with lots of photos. She had a cast on her arm the day she got married??? Anyone else think there is something familiar about her mug shot? From another case maybe? Or possibly just another arrest of someone who resembled her...

She had a cast on her arm the day she got married???

Is that really a cast, or those elbow high gloves that come down to a point on the hand. That's what it looks like to me. But, maybe I'm wrong.

It looks big like a cast would look, but, if you look at her upper arm, the lower part of the arm is the right size.

911 Tapes Reveal Stepmother Reported a Fire the Day Zahra Baker Disappeared

Police Now Suspect the Backyard Fire Was Set Deliberately

By SARAH NETTER and LAUREN EFFRON
Oct. 19, 2010



The Hickory. N.C., police department today released the tapes of the two 911 calls that Adam and Elisa Baker made, around the time their 10-year-old daughter, Zahra Baker, was reported missing.

WSOC-TV in Charlotte obtained the tape of the first call. On Oct. 9, the day Zahra disappeared, her stepmother, Elisa Baker, reported a fire in the back of the family's home in Hickory.

"My husband works for a tree maintenance company and our backyard is on fire. ... We've got big mulch piles and wood piles ... firewood and stuff," Elisa Baker told the 911 operator.

Watch the full story tonight on "Nightline" at 11:35 p.m.

Police told WSOC-TV that they now believe the fire had been set deliberately, but no one has been charged in connection with the incident.

Eight hours later on the morning of Oct. 10, Adam Baker, 33, made a second 911 call to report his daughter was missing, police said.

"Hey, how are you doing? I need police," Baker said to one dispatcher, before he was transferred to a second dispatcher, who took down his information.

On the tape with the second dispatcher, of which ABC News obtained a recording, Baker can be heard describing how the police had been out to his house the night before on a seemingly different case.

Listen to the full recording of Adam Baker's 911 call Here.

Adam Baker Involved: Statement Analysis

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

~ Snipped ~

DISPATCHER: 911 what is your emergency?

Note that in the original call, Baker began with a greeting. Note research by Dr. Adams, FBI, that showed guilty callers in domestic homicides were noted first by a greeting to the answering 911 operator.

ADAM BAKER: Ah.. yeah my daughter is missing.

According to the research on domestic homicide calls, guilty callers do not ask for help specifically for the victim but rather often insult the victim.

DISPATCHER: I'm sorry? Your daughter…

"I'm sorry" means that Dispatcher heard something that triggered sensitivity and is often used as a polite delay to give time to think. Listening to the audio suggests that the dispatcher may have been surprised by such a calm demeanor accompanying such a drastic statement by a parent.

ADAM BAKER: My daughter is missing.

Note the name: "my daughter". Always note when a name is used by context, and when a pronoun is used (also by context)

DISPATCHER: Your daughter is missing.

Repetition shows sensitivity. The dispatcher is likely shocked.

DISPATCHER: What is your address?

ADAM BAKER: 21 21st Ave. Northwest.

Note that no assistance is demanded for Zahra. Dr. Adams also found that guilty callers sometimes disparaged the victim, and often blamed the victim as to the reason for the call. The blaming was often in the form of complaining about the victim.

~Snipped from above~

ADAM BAKER: The police were out here last night. They found a ransom note for my bosses daughter… um… I got up a little while ago… and it appears they took my daughter instead of my bosses daughter.

This was my first thought on their planted ransom note, Zahra was taken by mistake at the house the boss owns, that they rent.

Laughing about her possibly coming into puberty during a 911 call to report her missing is disgusting. He never even mentions her name, or pleads for help. They thought they had it all tied up in a nice little package and they would walk away scott free. How ignorant and stupid of them......poor Zahra!

I read they are ready to search a landfill but it will take 4 to 5 days.

Piper, the landfill is also in Caldwell County, where they used to live. I have always thought they should be searching in Caldwell County all along. However, this landfill is a long ways from where they lived, and if she hasn't been seen in 3 weeks, I'm sure there has been a lot of garbage dumped during this time.

How deep into the pile of garbage will they actually dig? I'm afraid Zahra will never be found. When I took my mom to the doctor today, I drove past the house the dad and step-mom lived in. It was only 4 blocks above mom's doctor's office. My aunt lives a few blocks away, on 19th Avenue, NE and they searched all around her area. LE trampled all her bushes down that were growing in her back yard.

N.C. girl's stepsister: Don't free my mother

By Franco Ordoñez and Steve Lyttle

Zahra Baker's stepsister asked a judge Wednesday not to release her mother from jail, saying she feared for her safety and that of her own children.

Amber Fairchild, 25, described her mother, Elisa Baker, as a potentially violent and unstable woman who has severed ties with her N.C. family and begun an online relationship with a man in London.

Fairchild didn't specify why she was afraid, but a Catawba County prosecutor noted that Elisa Baker has had several allegations of communicating threats filed against her this year.

Tapes: Dad had theory on Baker abduction
In initial call to police, Adam Baker says Zahra may have been mistaken target of kidnappers.

Wednesday, Oct. 20, 2010
By FRANCO ORDOÑEZ - The (Charlotte) Observer

Hickory, N.C., police on Tuesday released recordings of two emergency calls made from Zahra Baker’s home the day the 10-year-old girl was reported missing.

The calls shed new light on what Zahra’s parents claim happened Oct. 9, and how an early morning fire and a phony ransom note might have been linked to her disappearance.

The Bakers’ description of events suggests that Zahra might have been kidnapped while her father and stepmother were dealing with a fire in the back yard of their Hickory house. The Bakers also reported that kidnappers might have taken Zahra by mistake in an attempt to abduct the daughter of Baker’s boss and landlord, Mark Coffey.

“I don’t know if they set a fire in the yard to distract us to go out, and they snuck in the door,” Adam Baker said of possible kidnappers in his 911 call.

“It appears they may have taken my daughter instead of his daughter.”

I have no idea how deep they go in a landfill search. Most of them seem to have a system of knowing what date and area trash came from when it's brought to the landfill. I hate to think she was dumped like garbage, but it seems the majority of the murdered children are. One article stated they were searching for evidence, not Zahra's body, in the landfill. I don't know how that's possible unless they are looking for something very specific.

~Snipped~
LENOIR, NC - UPDATE: Hickory Police Department is asking people who have seen Zahra Baker in the last few months to come forward to assist in the search. They are looking for something in the Caldwell County Landfill as well, but would not say what that is.

Police say they don't expect to find the body of a missing disabled North Carolina girl in a landfill, but they are searching the mounds of trash for a key piece of evidence.

How could this woman get someone to send her so much money? What a nasty piece of work she is. I'm glad her daughter came forward with this info and that they've increased her bail.

~Snipped from J4A's post~


But Assistant District Attorney Eric Bellas argued that Baker's bond should be increased after describing how Elisa Baker had met her current husband, Adam Baker, online while he was living in Australia with his daughter Zahra. Elisa Baker later moved to Australia to be with him, the prosecutor said, before the couple moved back to North Carolina in 2009.

Bellas didn't spell out the nature of Elisa Baker's new online relationship. But Fairchild identified the London man her mother was communicating with as Kara Fullman, and said the man has sent Baker $10,000 over the past year until very recently. She didn't describe why the man would send her mother money.

Zahra was last seen on Sept 25th at a furniture store with step-mom. They purchased a new mattress. LE have removed a mattress, box springs and bed frame from the home.

Last night they carried a mattress out of the dump site, but it has not been determined that it was from the parents home yet. They did say that the new mattress removed from the home had not been slept on yet.

From that, I wonder if Zahra was killed right after she was seen at the store. The furniture store didn't deliver the mattress until 2 days after it was purchased.

Another piece of their pre-meditated murder and cover up? Save the old mattress for what, Zahra's murder? Then make sure they have witnesses see them buy a new one with Zahra in tow. The furniture store owner said Zahra was called by name by Elisa Baker in the store, he even mentioned her prosthetic leg. Seems to me the intent was for Zahra to be seen and positively identified in that furniture store, with them purchasing a mattress. That's just my opinion.

Another big blunder in their perfect evil plan, just like the arson in the backyard and the phony ransom note.

Police end landfill search in case of missing N.C. girl

By the CNN Wire Staff
October 23, 2010 7:31 a.m. EDT

(CNN) -- Authorities ended their search at a North Carolina landfill Friday for a mattress connected to the case of a missing 10-year-old girl, police said. They did not recover it.

Investigators had hoped to use the mattress to confirm information from interviews conducted as part of their investigation, Hickory police said in a news release. They had also hoped it would provide some DNA evidence related to the case.

Zahra Clare Baker was reported missing October 9. However, no one other than a family member has reported seeing her since September 25, when a woman saw her at a furniture store, police say.

The missing mattress, which belonged to Zahra, was thrown out by her parents in early October, days before she was reported missing, police say.

A team from Hickory police and agents from the North Carolina Bureau of Investigation and the FBI participated in the search at the Foothills Environmental Landfill in Lenoir, North Carolina.

Father of Missing North Carolina Girl Arrested

Published October 25, 2010
FoxNews.com


This May 2010 photo shows Zahra Clare Baker, 10, getting a hearing aid at an event at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The father of a missing North Carolina girl presumed dead was arrested early Monday on charges unrelated to the child's disappearance.

The Hickory Police Department told FoxNews.com that Adam Baker was arrested at 3:12 a.m. Monday on five counts of writing worthless checks and three counts of failure to appear in court.

Baker, whose 10-year-old daughter Zahra was last seen in public on Sept. 25, is being held in the Catawba County jail on $7,000 bond. It was unclear if he had an attorney.

Zahra was reported missing on Oct. 9 and police accused Elisa Baker, the girl's stepmother, of writing a fake ransom note.

Adam Baker told the dispatcher in a 911 call that a ransom note was found at his home indicating that someone kidnapped his boss' daughter after someone set a fire in his backyard.

In our local news, it was first reported that Adam was arrested at the Charlotte Air Port, however, all mention of the air port has been removed from the reports.

This is the updated report, but be sure to read the comments at the bottom of the report.

Interesting, site. Very interesting. If he was trying to leave town that would explain LE detaining him on the unrelated charges to keep him from leaving. Let me know what you hear.

Here is another news report that states he was arrested at the airport. However, they say he was there to pick someone up. Maybe the grandma has finally arrived here, since she was the person who raised Zahra for her first 5 years of life.

I'm glad to hear they've arrested her dad on unrelated charges. Looks like stepmom is talking, they had her out on a search:

Searchers in Caldwell don't find Zahra on Monday

Published: October 25, 2010

GRANITE FALLS -- Authorities headed back to Caldwell County Monday in their search for missing 10-year-old Zahra Baker.

Despite a search by several law enforcement agencies and a surprise appearance by Zahra's stepmother, Elisa Baker, at one point, authorities turned up nothing.

This case is getting really crazy! Since they are doing the current search on Dudley Shoals Road in Granite Falls, they have closed the road to only those who live on that road.

Therefore all youth sports in our area have been cancelled, and the football banquet for Dylan's age has been cancelled for tonight, and we don't know when it will be rescheduled.

They are not searching on that road today, but they still have the road blocked, and the area they are searching in is still taped off and no one is allowed in that area. They keep saying it is a small area they are searching in, but that road leads to lots of homes, and even the school buses are not allowed in that area. Parents are actually having to be at the last bus stop to pick up their kids, and they have to have some ID to prove they are just getting their own kids. No one can pick up anyone else's kids.

Police Find Mattress Matching Description Of Zahra's

Updated: 3:44 pm EDT October 26, 2010

CALDWELL COUNTY, N.C. -- Police found a mattress matching the description of one they are looking for in connection with the disappearance of 10-year-old Zahra Baker, law enforcement officials told Channel 9.

Last week, a team of investigators searched a Caldwell County landfill for a mattress belonging to Zahra that had been disposed of by her parents sometime in early October, police said. On Friday, police said that search came up empty.

However, on Tuesday, officials said a mattress found matches the description of the one they’re looking for and will be tested at state labs for DNA evidence.

Also on Tuesday, investigators began searching along Christie Road in Caldwell County. They blocked off an approximately two-mile stretch of Christie Road on Tuesday morning and began searching there. The area is about seven miles away from where investigators searched on Monday.

Though we all know how accurate Nancy Grace is...she's reporting that it's rumored that Zarha's body may be stuffed in the mattress that was found. Sad I hope not.

I read that rumor somewhere else today. I almost posted it with the clarification that it was a rumor, but then I remembered back to the Kyron search where it was rumored that his body had been found, so I decided not to bother. The rumors in both cases allegedly came from searchers. I don't know if the rumor being on Nancy Grace makes it more likely or less likely to be true.

NG drives me crazy! She should have to get confirmation before making statements about rumors. She does this all the time. (For ratings, I suppose)

On one hand, I'm glad they didn't find her stuffed in a mattress but on the other hand...well...I wish she could just be brought home. The poor angel has already been through so much in her short life.

Maybe?......just Zahra's prosthetic leg is that "key" piece of evidence they are looking for, possibly in that mattress? They are saying her remains have not been found, but what if...it was just her leg? Could the leg be the murder weapon, like blunt force trauma?

The chief just announced that an artificial leg was found during their search this morning @ Christy Lane, near where the family lived in Caldwell County, before moving to Hickory. He said it matches the description of Zahra's leg, and is at this time being processed in their forensic lab, but he feels it is hers. He said the leg was not buried, and was not among other trash that had been discarded there. It was lying by itself near the trash pile. He was asked if this tip came from Elisa when she was at that site, but he did not answer. The press conference only lasted about 5 minutes and he only made his announcement about the leg, and answered about 3 or 4 questions.
