It's not relevant in some case but it is in others. The Bryan Nisenfeld's case comes to mind.

The Connecticut River Valley Killer (who stabbed women to death along the New Hampshire/Vermont border in the 1980's) always interested me so I bought the book about it by Phillip Ginsburgh. One of the victims was Eva Morse who was stabbed to death in July of 1985 while hitchhiking from Charlestown, NH to Claremont. Unsolved Mysteries only showed Eva's picture really quickly along with the rest of the victims and the only attack they gave details on was Jane Boroski's. But the book pointed out that on the day she was killed, Eva arrived at work and told her boss that she was going home sick. When she left, she hitched a ride to Claremont with the intention of visiting her former lesbian lover. She never arrived and her body was found in the area one year later.

The Selena Edon case was the first thing that popped in my head when I read this topic. Many posters here, myself included, speculated that she was a lesbian. Her friend Laurie Gallagher was interviewed in the segment and she was a lesbian. Selena lived in San Francisco. And her qualities and interests made it easy to speculate. She was described by her family as always marching to her own drummer. She worked as a construction worker and she loved motorcycles. I'm gay and I don't like speculation based on stereotypes but in this case, it was always just a feeling I had. Then a friend of Selena's who served with her in the Air Force posted here a couple years ago and told us that Selena confessed to her at the time that she was gay. Some folks thought that the reason she went missing was because she chose to run away so she wouldn't have to come out to her family. But I never believed that was the case. I think the injuries from her motorcycle accident simply resurfaced and she wandered off and doesn't know who she is.
I have watched the Selena Edon case a few times and I suspected that she was a lesbian based on how she was discussed and described in the segment and seeing her friend Laurie being interviewed pinged my gaydar. Do you a link to the thread in which Selena's friend posted on?

I agree with you, I think Selena's brain injured probably played a part in her disapperance. I think it would be good Discovery ID's Disappered to do a show on Selena's disapperance.

I remember there was a segment about a married couple who owned a video rental store or some kind of business and the wife disappeared and it was speculated because of a letter that a wife left her husband for another woman but I can't remember any names.

I always thought that was a very weird case. Not because of Selena's sexual orientation, but the circumstances of her disappearance. She literally just "upped and left". I think the trauma she sustained probably plays a large role too. I wonder if there are similar stories of people disappearing for inexplicable reasons after a brain injury.

I always got the feelog that don dixon was a closet homosexual. He could have expressed feelings for Eric and then in a fit of embarrassment later, killed him. Or even motivated by jealousy. Who knows, it would make some sense.

It was one very short post. All it said was...

Quote:
I was stationed in the Air Force with Selena. She was originally from Chicago. We were stationed at Travis Air Force Base, California. She confessed to me that she was gay. She also had a wild side and took a lot of chances. She would go off with people she had just met, etc. Yet, I was still surprised when I saw the Unsolved Mysteries episode of her as a missing person.

Pam Page.
Thank you for posting the name of the case I was wondering about. I was remembering this case sometime back and I kept trying to remember the name of the wife.

I also though Selena's case was strange because of her brain injury. My cousin is an occupational therapist and she has worked with brain injury patients for almost five years. She has said that in some situations the abilities of good judgment and impulse are effected in a lot of patients and some of these people can't really make good decisions. I think maybe that could have been the case with Selena.

Thank you for posting it dynoguy. Even though it was short it gave us a little more insight into Selena's history.

I thought Matt's story might of been changed a bit to hide his sexuality from the viewers. I got the vibe Matt might be gay or bisexual by looking at his picture.

I'm not sure how relevant this is to the case but I believe there is a very good chance that Amy Bradley was gay. In the case, they suggested that she was involved with some guy on the cruise ship. Hmm...I just don't believe it.

I never thought about Matthew Chase being gay, but I rewatched the segment and I can see it now. Maybe that does add a new element to the case. I am not gay, but surprised to see so many gay USM fans! Represent!

Wait...Raymond Burr was gay!!?!?!?

Honestly, the actor playing Chase and Chase's photos appear in the segment so briefly that I'm surprised you guys got a "vibe."

Indeed. I'm not understanding this vibe so many people are getting. I can't get a vibe from someone from one quick photo.

I guess the vibe came more from Matthew's friends interviewed in the segment.

It's entirely possible that it's Chase's friends who were gay.
