Myrtle Beach woman still hasn't been found, which isn't that surprising considering her case is verging closer to turning a month old. It's been stated numerous times that the first 48 to 72 hours comprise of the most vital window of time in a person's disappearance. With over three weeks gone since anyone last seen or heard from Heather, it's only logical to speculate that she could have been murdered -- but who'd do such a thing?
This Examiner article points out that there are nearly 200 registered sex offenders in Myrtle Beach, with more than a couple violent offenders on that list. Is it at all possible that a registered sex offender in the area had something to do with Heather's disappearance? Hopefully investigators have questioned those who are on their radar as "dangerous" offenders.
With Myrtle Beach being a tourist trap, I can't just rest all of my speculation on the belief that a sex offender did something to Heather Elvis. There are also plenty of possibilities regarding her place of employment or her behavior and lifestyle. However, the statistical likelihood is that someone known to this young woman did something with her.
