I believe Elena killed herself and he walked away from the bridge. He's probably living in Italy (the family has connections there, IIRC).

He's too much of a narcissist to kill himself, IMO.
I believe Elena was born in Italy, so her family is likely there. But here's the issue: if her family was aware of her death and/or Adam being alive without her, would they really be willing to help him? They likely might blame Adam for her death and would probably decide to severe ties with him.

Honestly, I think Adam is dead, his remains in that same river but have yet to be recovered. Only a few fragments of Elena's remains were found, so it is possible that the rest of her and Adam's remains could have been spread over the Narragansett Bay.

^^This.^^

It's another hot topic on the boards right now, but the majority of people on here feel that Bryan Nisenfeld committed suicide. Yet only his shin bone was located.

Why is THIS case any different from Bryan's, especially if they both involve someone jumping off a bridge?

Imo think he is dead. If anyone in his or Elena's family were giving him money FBI would have traced it.

The FBI and Rhode Island state police are actively looking for Adam Emery. He remains on the FBI's 'most wanted violent criminals' list.

I'm not at all convinced he's dead, because there's no proof of that. I've seen this called a "conspiracy theory" which is a bit silly when the head investigator on the case said as recently as 2016 that "we don't know" if he's dead. Also there is no proof of conspiracy. For all we know Adam Emery fled on his own.

Regarding the leg bone - it was immediately clear the height did not match. The authorities were not at all convinced it was Emery. Suicides are a regular occurrence from Newport Bridge, so there's no reason to believe it was him.

I think he killed Elena to give credence to the idea that they had both committed suicide.

Scary post. The argument that he is still alive is conspiratorial caliber.

Authorities everywhere can be knuckleheads, with zero clue toward probability, and conspiratorial caliber. I guarantee plenty of them also believed those fake news stories last year. And next year. What they believe means nothing when basic common sense is near void.

I love reading my post on page one. I hadn't seen it in years. Much appreciate this bump.

And I'm hungry.

The authorities would love to confirm he's dead, and then the FBI and Rhode Island police can all put away their tin foil hats and so can I.

But, they never have because there is no evidence he's dead, and you have not referred to any evidence in your sneering post. The victim's family are not satisfied he's dead either, I guess you can sneer at them as well.

If you disagree that's fine. But argue based on facts, not labeling. If there is any convincing evidence he's dead I would happily change my stance.

Again, there's no body. While we are talking about fake news, it would seem you believe the Rumsfeldian "absence of evidence is not evidence of absence".

I feel like law enforcement did their job in this case, as did the prosecutor. I see no reason to accuse them of incompetence. The real knucklehead in this case was the judge who let this man out on bail after his conviction as he awaited sentencing. That should have never happened, or I wouldn't be arguing with a stranger on the internet right now about this.

I'd just like to point out that you were wrong before. In 2003 you said, "I'm certain the leg bone was indeed Adam Emery's." Mitochondrial DNA testing on the leg bone proved you were certainly wrong. The FBI crime lab has done mitochondrial DNA testing on all human remains pulled from Narragansett Bay, including said leg bone. None have thus far belonged to Adam Emery. That is the only certainty with regard to Mr. Emery's disappearance.

I never understood why the judge allowed Emery free pre-sentencing. Cynthia Bass posted this in the comments section of an Rhode Island Monthly article on Adam Emery. The link to the comment is gone now, so I'm reposting it here:

Quote:
ADAM EMERY IS A LIVE AND WELL ACCORDING TO HIS NEPHEW . QUOTING A CARD THAT WAS MAILED TO ADAM'S FATHER , WHICH IS THE YOUNG MANS GRANDFATHER. HE SAID QUOTE " IM SORRY , AND IM OK . I WON'T BE CONTACTING YOU AGAIN . I WAS SHOCKED TO HEAR THIS AS IT WAS TOLD TO ME BY MY DAUGHTER . MY HUSBAND WAS RAYMOND BASS, THE BROTHER OF JASON BASS THE YOUNG MAN ADAM EMERY MURDERED IN AUG. OF 1990 . I LEFT A VOICE MESSAGE WITH THE A.G. OFFICE I BELEIVE IT WAS THE SUMMER OF 2006 . NO ONE RETURNED MY CALL . I EXPLAINED THAT I NEW OF A PERSON OF INTEREST RELATED TO THE EMERY / BASS MURDER CASE . OUR VOICE GOES UNHEARD . WHERE'S THE JUSTICE FOR JAY ! BUT WE STILL KEEP THE FAITH THAT SOMEDAY WE WILL HAVE ABSOLUTE CLOSURE . A BASS FAMILY MEMBER , CYNTHIA BASS - DENONCOUR
The card was most likely a hoax, but there's never been any evidence of Emery's remains in that area. My guess is that Elena encouraged him into the suicide in a similar fashion to how she encouraged him to attack Bass over a fender bender.

This is a case where I want to be proven wrong, BUT I do believe he is dead. Case closed in my mind.

However, it would be great to find out I was wrong, and he was discovered elsewhere.

I always figured he agreed to go along with the suicide pact, all the while planning not to do so. She jumped first, he didn't follow and she quickly realized this in the final moments of her life. Again, just my opinion.
He seemed cold and calculating enough that he would have disappeared by any means necessary. I think the guy is still alive.
After this long, any extra bone fragments very well could have floated far out into the Atlantic.

Absolutely! This is my theory too. He needed her to die so it would seem like he killed himself as well.

We don't know enough about the psychological profile of Adam Emery to know whether he would stand there and let his wife jump. Given the lack of criminal history and/or violence in the husband and wife relationship and the fact that nothing has surfaced in all the years suggests he's in the water.

Yes, but the cold-blooded SOB also committed murder for no reason and was absolutely remorseless. That's all I need to know about the guy to figure he is capable of anything.

He killed a stranger in a fit of rage. There is a huge difference between that and letting someone you're romantically involved with jump to their death.
