The 'parents' of missing teen Erica Lynn Parsons have reportedly become "increasingly uncooperative" as the search for the little girl heats up. It's also been revealed in the latest released by officials, that the adoptive parents have been caught in lies. This only indicates a negative element in the case of the missing girl -- in particular, foul play. Why are the foster parents of this missing teen misleading officials? It likely has a lot to do with why they never reported her missing -- even though she has been missing for two years.
Did Erica Parsons' adoptive parents murder her? It's impossible not to speculate in this direction due to the circumstantial evidence against them. They have lied to investigators and they have failed to report this teen missing for two years. Officials say that the adoptive parents of the missing girl told them that she was with family in another city, and that she contacted them and said that she "didn't want to come home." Come to find out: None of this ever happened, and Erica does not have family in another city. Claims of the teen being "rebellious" have also been discovered as false.
Why would foster parents lie about so many details if they are not responsible directly for her disappearance? At this point, it's time for investigators to get their warrants in order and gather up some cadaver dogs and other necessary search equipment. Sometimes the lies of suspicious people turn out to hold truths. These foster parents claim that she was in Asheville -- but may have only said this due to the girl's biological mother having once lived there. However, a search between the girl's foster family's home and Asheville may reveal her remains. That's just a theory.
It's important to put the heat on this girl's family. They are lying, and they are covering something up -- but what? Did Erica Lynn Parsons suffer some kind of accident that they were afraid of revealing to officials, or did she suffer some kind of fatal abuse at the hands of her caretakers? Now that officials have revealed her family to be liars, the case can only go in one direction from here. Hopefully investigators in North Carolina don't flub this case up -- because after two years, there may not be much evidence.
