Can we please have this poster banned? Many of us have dreamed for years that Mark and Debbie would be reunited with their children. It's finally going to happen and we want to talk about it.

I do NOT want to have another thread locked because of the ugliness spewed from another member of the Maple family.

Agreed!

I wonder if the person really is a member of the MAPLE family.

If they are, then I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

another thing I wanted to point out regarding Bobby and Kristi not remembering is this: I don't think they forgot overnight. But 20 years is a long time, and I believe they gradually (over the course of many years) lost memory, coupled with what I said above about the mind blocking out trauma as a coping mechanism.

The Maples were in their early 50's during the abductions, whereas the majority of grandparents are in their 60's and up. So they were young enough to convince Bobbi and Kristi, and everyone else, that they were the parents.

In my humble opinion to avoid having the thread locked is just not respond to any post made by this "Family" member. Just ignore their posts and we can talk as usual to each other. If they get no reaction what so ever to anything they post with any luck they will go away. You can bet they would love to see another thread getting locked so the truth can not come out.

Default Ignore Maple posters!

After what happened to our old thread, I swore that if any Maple posters turned up on new Baskin threads I would not respond to any of their comments. It takes two to quarrel.

So Obi Wan is right - ignore this poster and any other Maple relatives who turn up on our thread, or tell them very firmly: "We're not interested in arguing with you," and stick to it!

That will help stop the thread turning ugly and getting locked as the other one was. Besides, it is no use arguing with them - we learned that the hard way. Now the case is solved it is no time to quarrel but time to celebrate and wish our very best for the Baskins and their children!

Well said. And I agree. I'm too happy for the Baskins right now to argue with any members of their "family."

In other good news, Marvin Maple is slated to go before a California judge tomorrow (Thursday) on extradition charges. I hope there's an article posted about it.

Default Message from Detective Sharp

When I heard the Baskin case had been solved, I decided to email Detective Sharp to congratulate him. Here is his response:

Thank you for the message. I can speak for the Sheriff's Department and other involved we appreciate the support. It took the courage of those witnesses to come forward and break this case. Like you, I can only hope that the children and the Parents can develop some type of a relationship.

God Bless

Lt. Bill Sharp

I didn't see that this article had been posted.

http://www.dnj.com/article/20090204/...342/1002/rss01

This quote left in the comment section was interesting.

Thank God! I remember passing notes with Christie back in second grade... none of us in the class realized what was going on when she disappeared, although our teacher tried to explain that she wouldn't be back the rest of the semester. I've followed this story for years, through Unsolved Mysteries and other mediums. I can't imagine what her and Bobby are going through right now, to have your reality shattered in an instant. This can't be easy for them, and I pray everything will be okay for them. I know their parents must be overjoyed just to know they are alive. I just can't imagine... 20 years... what a story...

Another story:

http://www.montereyherald.com/breaking/ci_11631256

This answers one of my questions--apparently, Marvin Maple worked as a car salesman in San Jose--probably the perfect job, given that one can make a good deal of money (if talented), but doesn't necessarily need (proof of) a college education or experience. All that matters, at least from my understanding, is that you sell. It's also possibly an environment where one can get to know his co-workers on a superficial basis, but not worry about them learning too much about you if you don't want them to.

I find it very surprising that they apparently never left the area, even after the update that placed them in nearby Santa Clara. It would seem to me to be a risk that they'd be detected. Detective Goodwin explains it well, though:

Quote:
"They live in a large urban area where not a lot of people ask too many questions," Goodwin said.
That's California in a nutshell (I say that as someone who has lived there). Of course it could describe other places as well.

She had little or no memories of her past--including language, though a child of 10 should be fluent--and may not have remembered her name until her uncle reminded her of it. She was happy in her new life and very unhappy in being taken from it. It seems she was not unique. It could be that some people choose not to remember while some can't help it. I tend to believe the Baskin children may have been subjected to some sort of mental coercion such as hypnosis or other very strong suggestion.

I am related to Cynthia Ann Parker on my dad's side! Very distantly!

You all badgered my sisters, Dipahead & Spit^Fire, for details that they were not in a position to give you and accused them of knowing more than they did. Not that they need to answer to any of you, anyway. This case is NOTHING to you other than NEWS. This is our FAMILY. Keep your speculation to yourselves.
MapleFamily, The Baskins were cleared of all charges including child molesting, according to Anita Flagg Bobby had been coached into saying he'd been abused, still you defend the Maples and accuse us of being evil and hateful? We all have to go by the facts here.

I have known the Baskins personally for years. I have spoken to Debbie several times over the last couple of days.

I cant tell you how overwhelming this all is. The Baskins are experiencing the miracle of miracles after 20 years of praying, fasting, searching, and never giving up hope.

Debbie and Mark are outstanding people. No way did they ever harm those kids. The 2 kids they have at home, Michael and Paul, are delightful.

There is no telling what Christi and Bobby were told and made to believe by their grandparents. As far as them not remembering anything....it's possible the trauma of being taken from their parents was so traumatic that they repressed all memories of their former lives just out of self preservation. The mind has the ability to do that. I, along with many others, continue to pray that they will be receptive to the truth and rejoin the Baskin family.
