2020.09.20 18:33 LeavesFallingSlow J-1 Visa, CR1/IR1 Visa & marriage of US citizen to a Chinese

My partner (30f) is from China and I (26m) am a US citizen. We met in a graduate program for teachers (we are both teachers) and we have been together for nearly one year. We both are very committed and regularly discuss marriage and starting a family.
She is currently working in the US on an OPT visa (Optional Practical Training) which she was granted after her F-1 student visa. It expires in July, 2021.
Her current employer offered to sponsor her for a J-1 Visa but she and her employer have not discussed the details or timeline of the sponsorship yet. The issue is we both would like to move from our current city (Miami) to somewhere we feel is more appropriate to raise a family. My first question is this: if she is sponsored as a foreign teacher with a J-1, can she quit her work and apply to another job while still holding the same visa?
The other option I have thought of is to propose to her, but I have not yet met her parents in person (only over video chat) and in her culture, it is very abnormal for a couple to get married without both partners meeting and receiving a “blessing” from each other’s parents. I don’t necessarily want this to be the reason I propose to her either. My previous plan was to wait until after traveling to China and meeting her parents, then to propose in the city where we first met (San Diego). The urgency of the visa is taking away what I felt would be a more natural progression of our relationship.
I am thinking that the marriage must take place soon because of the CR1 visa processing time (I have heard it can take 7-10 months), otherwise she may have to leave the country. We are very much trying to avoid that due to the uncertainty of these times, with COVID, as well as with US and China relations politically.
If you have any experience with obtaining a J-1 or a CR1/IR1 or if you have any advice in general, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for reading my story.

2020.09.19 15:40 robmak3 Huang’s Law Is the New Moore’s Law, and Explains Why Nvidia Wants Arm -- WSJ

https://www.wsj.com/articles/huangs-law-is-the-new-moores-law-and-explains-why-nvidia-wants-arm-11600488001
During modern computing’s first epoch, one trend reigned supreme: Moore’s Law.
Actually a prediction by Intel Corp. INTC -0.85% co-founder Gordon Moore rather than any sort of physical law, Moore’s Law held that the number of transistors on a chip doubles roughly every two years. It also meant that performance of those chips—and the computers they powered—increased by a substantial amount on roughly the same timetable. This formed the industry’s core, the glowing crucible from which sprang trillion-dollar technologies that upended almost every aspect of our day-to-day existence.
As chip makers have reached the limits of atomic-scale circuitry and the physics of electrons, Moore’s law has slowed, and some say it’s over. But a different law, potentially no less consequential for computing’s next half century, has arisen.
I call it Huang’s Law, after Nvidia Corp. chief executive and co-founder Jensen Huang. It describes how the silicon chips that power artificial intelligence more than double in performance every two years. While the increase can be attributed to both hardware and software, its steady progress makes it a unique enabler of everything from autonomous cars, trucks and ships to the face, voice and object recognition in our personal gadgets.
Power Surge (graph)

Source: the company
Between November 2012 and this May, performance of Nvidia’s chips increased 317 times for an important class of AI calculations, says Bill Dally, chief scientist and senior vice president of research at Nvidia. On average, in other words, the performance of these chips more than doubled every year, a rate of progress that makes Moore’s Law pale in comparison.
Nvidia’s specialty has long been graphics processing units, or GPUs, which operate efficiently when there are many independent tasks to be done simultaneously. Central processing units, or CPUs, like the kind that Intel specializes in, are on the other hand much less efficient but better at executing a single, serial task very quickly. You can’t chop up every computing process so that it can be efficiently handled by a GPU, but for the ones you can—including many AI applications—you can perform it many times as fast while expending the same power.
Intel was a primary driver of Moore’s Law, but it was hardly the only one. Perpetuating it required tens of thousands of engineers and billions of dollars in investment across hundreds of companies around the globe. Similarly, Nvidia isn’t alone in driving Huang’s Law—and in fact its own type of AI processing might, in some applications, be losing its appeal. That’s probably a major reason it has moved to acquire chip architect Arm Holdings this month, another company key to ongoing improvement in the speed of AI, for $40 billion.
The pace of improvement in AI-specific hardware will make possible a range of applications both utopian and dystopian, from the end of automobile accidents to ubiquitous surveillance. But it’s also enabling, right now, a less fantastical application with huge implications for how we shop and the fate of millions of retail jobs: cashierless checkout.

San Francisco-based tech company Standard recently announced a deal with Circle K to turn some of its stores into “grab and go” experiences in the mold of Amazon.com Inc.’s Amazon Go stores. The three-year-old startup installs cameras throughout stores, then routes video from them to Nvidia-powered systems in the back, which perform tens of trillions of calculations a second. As shoppers grab objects off store shelves, the system tallies it all, and bills them through their mobile devices as they walk out.
For perspective, a system performing this many operations a second is faster than the most powerful supercomputer in the world was as recently as 2012, at least at AI inference tasks.
“Honestly we could do nothing and just wait and Nvidia will drop our prices every year,” says Jordan Fisher, Standard’s founder and CEO.

Another category that Huang’s Law affects is autonomous vehicles. At San Diego-based TuSimple, a rapidly expanding autonomous-trucking startup, the challenge is making a self-driving system that can fit the power and space limitations of a diesel-powered semi-trailer truck. On a typical TuSimple vehicle, that means cramming the entire system, which can’t draw more than 5 kilowatts, into an air-cooled cabinet in the sleeper cab.
Given such power constraints, what matters most is performance per watt. TuSimple is seeing performance double every year on its Nvidia-powered systems, says Xiaodi Hou, the company’s co-founder and chief technology officer.
Similar boosts in performance have been occurring since the mid-2000s in a very different area of AI: our mobile phones.
In 2017, Apple introduced the iPhone 8, which included its Neural Engine. Apple designed the chip specifically to run machine-learning tasks, which are important to many kinds of AI. (Its chip-manufacturing partner is Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.)
Apple’s decision to make the chip accessible to any app on the phone—as well as the introduction of comparable chips and software on Android phones—allowed for new kinds of AI businesses, says Bruno Fernandez-Ruiz, co-founder and chief technology officer of Nexar, a company that makes AI-powered dashboard cameras for cars. By processing on users’ phones streams of video captured by dashboard cameras, Nexar’s technology can alert drivers to imminent hazards.
Uses of mobile AI are multiplying, in phones and smart devices ranging from dishwashers to door locks to lightbulbs, as well as the millions of sensors making their way to cities, factories and industrial facilities. And chip designer Arm Holdings—whose patents Apple, among many tech companies large and small, licenses for its iPhone chips—is at the center of this revolution.
Over the last three to five years, machine-learning networks have been increasing by orders of magnitude in efficiency, says Dennis Laudick, vice president of marketing in Arm’s machine-learning group. “Now it’s more about making things work in a smaller and smaller environment,” he adds. Arm’s smallest and most energy-sipping chips, tiny enough to be powered by a watch battery, can now enable cameras to recognize objects in real time.
This movement of AI processing from the cloud to the “edge”—that is, on the devices themselves—explains Nvidia’s desire to buy Arm, says Nexar co-founder and CEO Eran Shir. Nvidia has a near monopoly on AI processing in the cloud. But where two years ago, Nexar performed 40% of its data processing in the cloud, Arm-based chips have enabled it to do much more of that processing in mobile devices, and faster, since it doesn’t have to be transmitted over the internet first. Today, the cloud is doing only 15% of the work. In addition, some functions, like a vision-based parking assistant, were not even possible until recently, when the chips in phones became much more capable.
Experts agree that the phenomenon I’ve labeled Huang’s Law is advancing at a blistering pace. However, its exact cadence can be difficult to nail down. The nonprofit Open AI says that, based on a classic AI image-recognition test, performance doubles roughly every year and a half. But it’s been a challenge even agreeing on the definition of “performance.” A consortium of researchers from Google, Baidu, Harvard, Stanford and practically every other major tech company are collaborating on an effort to better and more objectively measure it.
Another caveat for Huang’s Law is that it describes processing power that can’t be thrown at every application. Even in a stereotypically AI-centric task like autonomous driving, most of the code the system is running requires the CPU, says TuSimple’s Mr. Hou. Dr. Dally of Nvidia acknowledges this problem, and says that when engineers radically speed up one part of a calculation, whatever remains that can’t be sped up naturally becomes the bottleneck.
It’s also possible that, like Moore’s Law before it, Huang’s Law will run out of steam. That could happen within a decade, says Steve Roddy, vice president of product marketing in Arm’s machine-learning group. But it could enable much in that relatively short time, from driverless cars to factories and homes that sense and respond to their environments.

2020.09.17 19:55 watrm3l0n San Diego Open Water Partner or Group

I moved to San Diego a couple of weeks ago from the middle coast (Michigan) and am looking for an open water training partner.
I’m a 21 year-old guy that graduated college in May and is working as an engineer out here. I live in PB, so I’ve gone out north of the Pier towards PB point for a swim, but I’d also be looking for someone to do La Jolla Cove to Pier with.
I can hold a pretty solid pace (~50 min 2 mile was the last open water race I did) but am cool to swim with anyone. Been swimming since I was 6 and transitioned to more open water training a couple of years ago.

2020.09.17 17:24 IndieheadsAOTY Album of the Year 2014 #17: TV Girl - French Exit

Album of the Year 2014 #17: TV Girl - French Exit
Howdy y'all! Welcome back to Album of the Year 2014, our September writing series where we look back at some of our sub's favorite albums from the year of our foundation! (Not ranked, all pitched by our sub's users!) Today we have u/mko0987 discussing TV Girl's French Exit!

June 5th, 2014 - Self-Released
Listen:
Bandcamp
YouTube
Spotify
Background
Formed in the halcyon wake of the chillwave summer of ‘09, TV Girl started as a collaboration between San Diego sk8r bois and high school friends Trung Ngo and Brad Petering. Despite initial modest expectations, things really hit the ground running when their Todd Rundgren-sampling track “If You Want It” got a writeup on Pitchfork’s Forkcast column, which led to a brief whirlwind of attention culminating in Rhino Entertainment wiping the track from the internet with a copyright takedown notice.
Several EPs, a 7” pressing, a SXSW appearance, and a move to LA later, the group released their first full-length mixtape - The Wild, The Innocent, The TV Shuffle, a rough-around the edges, shimmering record full of saccharine retro pop samples, Trung’s dazed out vocals, and a vibrant hip-hop flair. This ended up being the last project involving Trung, as he stepped away from the band leaving Petering to continue the project as a solo effort - and eventually a three piece with the addition of Jason Wyman and Wyatt Harmon for live touring support. Their Lonely Women EP piloted out this sound and lineup, with Petering taking over vocal duties and polishing up the production.
If Lonely Women was the warm-up round, French Exit was the real deal, arriving in 2014 with a “debut record” billing and a refined pop sound that brought more buzz to the project than ever before. Suddenly, seemingly overnight, TV Girl became “America’s favorite indie band” - if their social media is to be believed - and the rest is history.
Review (by u/mko0987)
Have you ever fallen in love? Chances are the answer is no, according to the Gen-X Balloon Guy on twitter. But even if you’re somehow under the perception that crushes aren’t real, emotions aren’t real, our eyes aren’t real, etc, you’ve probably had feelings for someone at some point in your brief confusing life. Maybe those feelings were reciprocated, or they weren’t and you stayed friends, or you had a great run that ended amicably, or a partner was hurt or betrayed. Or maybe you’re still together in spite of it all, living your best life (bless your hearts).
In the throes of all these lovelorn scenarios resides the thematic world of TV Girl’s French Exit, a thrilling yet fully “vibed-out” and “chill-ass” record of sample-heavy indie pop tunes. It’s a perfect record for riding your bike to a friend’s house on a sunny fall day, which is exactly the scenario in which I fell in love with it back in 2014. And yeah folks, this record is all about love. Even though in high school I had a head-ass contrarian aversion to love songs (therefore writing off about 70-80% of recorded music), fortunately that was a short lived phase. The tunes on this record serve as testament to the fact that love songs come in many shades and can ultimately be about a lot of different things.
The opening track “Pantyhose” serves as a good example of this. Taking inspiration from a chapter of Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried, the song depicts the story of a soldier using his back-home sweetheart’s garment as a good luck charm. Even though she’s moved on - the last chorus revealing that he’s been sent a Dear John letter - he maintains the superstition and is protected from bullets, mines, and heartbreak. This preoccupation with the artifacts of relationships, and the various significance we ascribe to them, is something that comes up often in TV Girl lyrics. As does the notion of unrequited love - which is especially prominent in the song “Hate Yourself”:
”And how long will it take?
Before you start to hate yourself
And go straight to the arms of someone else
And I'll just wait
'Till those arms belong to me and I'm not
Saying that you love me, I'm not saying anything”
Now before we really get into this - I’m aware that as of late there’s been a bit of a critical re-evaluation of TV Girl’s lyrics. I can see where it’s coming from. Frontman Brad Petering can come off quite bitter and asshole-ish in some of his more acerbic lyrics, or hedge close to the “nice guys finish last” victimhood trope in some of the more lovelorn ones. While I can confidently say that 82.6% of TV Girl’s fans are not incels, I can see how viewing the lyrics through that particular lens might sour listeners to the project. It’s 2020 and people understandably have a low tolerance for hearing about white hetero male woes anyway.
Petering’s been forthcoming about taking cues from the blunt honesty of Bob Dylan’s meaner, pettier tracks. “The Getaway” contains references to “Lilly, Rosemary, and the Jack of Hearts” to make that connection all the more overt. That Dylan-esque lens of personal stories and petty confessions are likely more along the lines of what he’s going for when he brings the snark, rather than some kind of overarching vendetta. Even the chorus of “Birds Don’t Sing”:
“Birds don’t sing, they just fall from the sky.
Girls don’t call and they never tell you why
that’s just how they say goodbye”
reads more as bemoaning a personal experience with ghosting than the sweeping generalization it could be perceived as at face value. He even dishes it back to himself in the same song with the line (spoken by his ex-lover):
“I think that all you ever really ever wanted was a reason to complain
That never stopped you before, don’t let it get in your way”
I’m not saying the man’s a saint, but I’d argue that these tunes are mostly just trying to be frank and humorous about the more ugly, selfish emotions that can crop up in the turmoil of relationships. Notions that I imagine are somewhat relatable to most people.
Even when the record is taking digs or lamenting lost love it still often conveys the warm minutiae of caring about someone else. Album closer “Anjela” has a soft spot for the titular character’s uncertainty, as she buries her head in her pillow and the narrator claims in obvious denial that he “didn’t like her anyway”. “Lovers Rock” depicts a vignette of two friends and would-be lovers sharing a kiss while listening to records. Even when feelings are getting hurt and things are going sour, the album still leaves the impression that navigating those choppy waters is worth it for those subtle affectionate moments with someone you care about. The bright instrumentation and Petering’s bemused, deadpan vocal delivery absolutely contribute to this impression. Even the more bitter lyrics on the record come across as playfully sardonic in the context of breezy instrumentation and sing-songy melodies.
So yeah, let’s dig into the music a bit. The rough formula goes something like this: mine 40s-70s pop records for sugary samples, layer in skittering hip-hop drum loops, throw in some old movie & radio vocal clips, and pass it all through dreamy filters. The result puts us somewhere at the crossroads between chillwave and The Avalanches-style plunderphonics. Jagged, chopped up drum loops and basslines bring an energetic, throwback hip-hop sound into the fold that recalls the bouncier tunes of groups like The Pharcyde and Souls of Mischief. “Daughter of a Cop” in particular has such a classic hip-hop energy going on, with that thumping “I’ll Take You There” bassline. The stuttering, flanged-out ride cymbals in “The Getaway” are a big highlight as well, essentially serving as the song’s hook. The whole vibe basically makes me really want to play Tony Hawk Pro Skater - I’ll chalk that up as a win for TV Girl’s skater cred.
More synth-heavy tunes like “Pantyhose”, “The Blonde”, and “Come When You Call” lean into the chillwave side of things, with reverb-drenched seventh chords and echoing percussion that are reminiscent of bedroom acts like Millionyoung and Planetarian. The vocals certainly take some cues from chillwave - though the Beach Boys harmonizing frequently encountered in that genre is mostly absent, replaced by doubled or octaved vocal layers to keep things straight-forward and pop oriented. I’d honestly be remiss to file the whole project under that genre tag. The vibes are certainly similar - hazy, sample heavy, deadpan - but the sound feels more rooted in the 50s “bop-bah, la la la” era of pop than the melty 80s panache of your average chillwave record.
Beyond aesthetics, the retro-pop palette pays off thematically. The songs sampled for the record tend to depict simple, rose-tinted versions of love and heartbreak. Products of their time, they strike a careful balance between innocence and innuendo, and end up revealing quite a bit about those decades’ romantic expectations.
For example this line from “Seven Minutes in Heaven” by The Poni-Tails (sampled in “Birds Don’t Sing):
“I need seven minutes in heaven
Mama, Papa please give me
Mama, Papa don’t be mean or I’ll scream.”
A bit disconcerting...or these lovesick lines from “The Dance is Over” by The Shirelles (sampled in “Lovers Rock”):
“Now I know I’m not to blame
and we may never meet again
and I feel so ashamed
Please can we still be friends
I know I’ll love you until the end
The dance is over and you are gone.”
An interesting contrast emerges with the inclusion of these samples - their melodramatic romanticism pitted against the cynical tone of Petering’s lyrics. It highlights that no matter how much the conventions of dating have changed, those core emotional experiences still resonate. It also creates some meta-contextual insight into how pop music can shape these experiences as a product that we consume. The malaise of the characters appearing in the songs on French Exit often stems from this, which is acknowledged explicitly in “Lovers Rock”:
”You like a pretty boy
With a pretty voice
Who's tryna sell you something
Something that you already have”
This lyric highlights that French Exit isn’t an exception to the commercial aspects of pop music, even when it’s commenting on how those aspects affect us. The term “pretty boy” acts as a stand-in for any number of pop singers or actors depicting love stories in art/media, including TV Girl themselves. Though the record tends to deal with the fallout of expecting real relationships to measure up to the idealized romances of pop culture, it’s still selling its own set of expectations by doing so. If you were to base your perceptions of love on this record alone, you might come to expect inordinate heaps of disappointment, yearning, and heartbreak. The cycle just continues forward in this way, in a process that’s folded into both the form and content of the tunes on French Exit.
Or put more crudely in “Talk to Strangers”:
“Lust turns to boredom, boredom to lust
Diminishing returns with each and every thrust”.
And with that, I’m gonna leave this review to the dustbin of history, to be critically re-evaluated in ten years time during the chillwave revival of 2030. Go cop a 6th anniversary repress, give the record another listen, and get ready to either fall in love all over again or be heartbroken. As for me, I’ll be on my bike bumping these tunes like 2014 never left.
Favorite Lyrics
The sound of mass confusion
Reverberated down the hall
Into the ears of a stoic roommate
Who put her headphones on
  • "Come When You Call"
Because love can burn like a cigarette
And leave you with nothing
  • "Lover’s Rock"
Louise never heard about puppy love
'Cause they don't know that term in France
  • "Louise"
Talking Points
  • Is this record a chillwave album? What characteristics make it fall into that genre category?
  • What are your thoughts on the discourse surrounding TV Girl’s lyrics? Appropriate callout or a misplaced reaction? Both?
  • How do you find the samples contribute to the sound and themes of the record? Are they successfully integrated?
Thanks again to u/mko0987 for the writeup! In the meantime, discuss today's record down below in the comments, where the schedule for the rest of the series will also be posted.

2020.09.17 12:31 CaptainGordan Throwback Write-Up #20: NB Ridaz - NB RIdaz.com

Artist: NB Ridaz
Album: NB Ridaz.com
Label: Upstairs Records
Released: April 4th, 2004
Background
NB Ridaz, formally known as Nastyboy Klick, are a Hip Hop/R&B group out of Phoenix Arizona. Started by MC Magic, the group became popular locally by selling their CDs at swap meets and making personalized songs of their hits for people. They dropped two albums under the Nastyboy Klick moniker, one of which had one of their most successful singles with “Lost In Love”. Their debut also had the hit “Down For Yours” featuring Roger Troutman, who laid down the chorus with his signature talkbox singing. That sound would become a staple in NB Ridaz’s future hits. With the name officially change to NB Ridaz, they dropped Invasion in 2001, with the hit song “Runaway” In 2004 they dropped NB Ridaz.com, their most successful album to date, spawning hits like “Notice Me” “So Fly” and “Pretty Girl”. The influence Roger Troutman had instilled on the group’s sound is especially prominent here, with the talkbox chorus on “Wishin on a Star” and “Pretty Girl” This album also served to promote their website NBRidaz.com, where they sold merchandise and promoted their personalized songs that fans can put requests for. Although the site is no longer active you are able to see remnants of the site if you use the wayback machine.
Intro
I wanted to preface by saying that the reason I chose this album was because it was huge among Hispanics/Latinos in the US. and in Latin America, but I feel like they are largely unknown to this forum and non-hispanic hip hop listeners. I realized I lived in a bit of a bubble when I overestimated their general popularity on this sub. Living in a large Mexican community, the album and songs like “So Fly” and “Pretty Girl” were inescapable and most girls I went to middle school with including my sister had a crush on MC Magic. I talked about them once in the DD a while back when someone brought up Soulja Boy’s influence by using the internet to blow up and being the supposed first one to really use the internet, and I mentioned how NB Ridaz were using their website to promote personalized songs before Soulja Boy was active, which was then downvoted and followed by a “Who?” response. Anyways after that and testing the waters by posting “Pretty Girl” (which was downvoted), I became aware of that bubble and how the album is not known to the general hip hop audience. To be fair, even when the album was in heavy rotation during release, I noticed it was more popular among girls than dudes, and this sub/website isn’t exactly known for their demographics in the women department.
Review
One thing about this album is that almost every single song has to do with love or intimacy, whether that be the pursuit and wooing of a new partner, cultivating and strengthening of relationships, or lamenting of past relations, probably why it was more popular with girls than dude.
The album kicks off with a forgettable intro followed by U Got Me Hot, which is just a fun song about meeting women at the club and a good track to kick off the album.
Now she was rockin hot jeans
Low-cut baby tee
Hotter than the Fourth of July in A Z
I mean I'm trippin, I couldn't even think
Booty so thick she can hold two drinks
Next is Pretty Girl. Though it wasn’t the leading single on the album, it is probably the most popular song from this album after Notice Me. With a smooth beat reminiscent of 90’s G-Funk, and a chorus and verses backed up by the talkbox singing that they picked up from Roger Troutman, this song has everything that makes it both timeless and a callback to the group’s roots. My favorite part has to be MC Magic’s verse, as he blesses us by alternating his rhymes between English and Spanish seamlessly.
Si tu supieras lo que siento
Cada vez
Que me pongo a pensar en todos los momentos
All the good times we've had, me and you, you and I
Hot summer nights, making love in July
The only girl that didn't give it on the first night
Una mujer incomparable, Imma love her life
After Pretty Girl and, the album transitions to its raunchier side with the lead single So Fly. One small detail I always liked about this song is that each member comes in with a short intro setup before their verse starts, with Zig Zag and MC Magic singing their first lines before rapping, and the DJ Scratching on the beginning of Dos’s verse, I thought it was a pretty neat touch. Zig Zag’s verse is iconic too and etched in my childhood since my sister had this song on loop on her boombox.
I know, I been on the road and away from home
But I been fiendin' for you
Dreaming of you
And what I'm gonna do when I have you alone
You heard the message
On your cellphone, me sayin' "Daddy's home"
I'm about to put it down, got you runnin' around
Half-naked around the house
And this isn't just fast sex
We makin' love until we both climax
Next up Tu Eres, a love ballad sung entirely in Spanish. The lines are a bit cheesy, but since it’s a love ballad it’s expected. If you get serious with a Latina who’s in her late 20’s/early 30’s, you’ll get bonus points if you play this for her.
Despertando una manana pensando en ti
Tus brazos y besos los quiero sentir
Yo te quiero y te amo que haria sin ti?
Un angel que Dios me enviado a mi
On Wishin’, the song revolves around getting hurt by being broken up with by an ex, but still wanting them back. Though it sounds great rapping and beat-wise, and the chorus is nice as hell, it’s my least favorite song on the album on subject matter alone. After that the album gets more upbeat on Playaz. Dope hook, classic beat, and great verses all around where NB Ridaz affiliates 'The Hav Nots' lay down some good verses.
The album then does a 180 with 4-Ever, a song about committing to be with your partner forever. The chorus features singer Angelina combined with the talkbox singing by the NB Ridaz. Though this is one of multiple tracks on the album that feature the talkbox singing chorus, and not even the only one that also features Angelina on the chorus, they still manage to get creative with it. Next up is Notice Me, which was probably the song that got the most radio play in my area and in general. While being the second song that has both Angelina and the talkbox singing chorus, it still manages to sound fresh and change from a theme of commitment to one of simping.
Until I Die is probably my favorite beat on the album, even with dope 90’s West Coast style beats of “Pretty Girl” and “Playaz”. Hearing this makes me wish NB Ridaz experimented more with guitars on their instrumentals. This song is different from the other love songs on the album in that it focuses on growth in partnership, from struggles to sacrifices couples would do for each other. Featured artist and long-time collaborator Big Gemini has a great verse on this as well
I used to say once you're born you're just waiting to die
And every day in between is just a waste of some time
But in time I was convinced that I was far from the truth
Believe it or not I found truth the night I met you
So just know that if there's life after death I'm a wait for you there
To love you forever for real
Sunshine features the same singer (Mary) who did the chorus on U Got Me Hot, and she easily steals the show on this. This song always reminded of a 90’s R&B ballad, and probably the only song on the album where I think Dos had the best verse. .
Not once not twice but your three times a lady
The comfort of your arms got me feeling like your baby
Ill be there for you lets make love in to memories
Your tender touch and your smile always get the best of me
Never let you go or treat you bad ill give you all i have
I belong to you and only you girl i want you bad
Sunshine is followed by the Lil Ridaz skit, just an obnoxious skit of these two little kids breaking into MC Magic’s studio and rapping. Kinda wishing they cut this because it’s not great. The skit leads us into the next song, Bounce If You Wanna, that uses the same beat as the skit. Something weird I found in making this writeup is that not a single lyric website has this song correctly noted, as every site instead has the lyrics to the Lil Ridaz skit. I wanted to highlight Kid Frost’s verse because he was nice and it was iconic to have the first Mexican-American rapper to blow up on an NB Ridaz track. This doesn’t exist anywhere else so I might have mucked a few words
Collar stay popped like champagne bottles, it’s full throttle
That’s the motto, and I spend dough like I won the lotto
Hit trees like there’s no tomorrow
Still spittin hot shit for you to bump in your barrio
Kid Frost, Two fifths of Hennessey
2002 West, go to push and a half ounce of kush
Went triple x, now there’s plenty of bush
Pornstars and strippers get snatched with one look
It’s the Kiddie crook back with them NB Ridaz
O’s and G’s, flippin pounds of keys
On the regular, there’s no competitor
Take it from the editor, back like the predator
Exterminator, Terminator, Violator, Regulator
And I’m way too smooth than them brand new wall of gators
Kid Frost still a boss and I floss on you haters
Fakes and phonies, and all you perpetrators
Southwest Ridaz is up next, and the album is just the group spitting cold hard bars. MC Magic shines as usual and alternate Spanish and English lines like he did on Pretty Girl, except with more hardcore rapping on this track. San Diego’s Mr. Shadow makes an appearance, who was also popular among latino hip hop listeners in the mid 2000’s, but who catered more to the gangster rap crowd.
MC Magic expands on how the group started in the skit Magic’s Custom CDs, where he recounts how his group were able to establish themselves by making personalized CDs for them and advertises how fans can use the website to request their own custom CDs, and as a bonus he even includes an example of a custom song he made using Lost in Love as a basis. The album’s closing track, Guess Who’s Back was always my guilty pleasure as a kid. Borrowing my sister’s CD of this album every now and then, this is the track I always skipped to since at the time I wasn’t feeling like hearing love or heartbreak songs, so this one holds a special place in my heart. With this and Southwest Ridaz, the group made it known they can drop bars when they wanted to and aren’t just a group that coasts on love ballads.
I didn’t mention the Cho and Lo skits, until now, but they are a series of skits on the album that have a radio duo ragging on each other. I used to like their banter when I was in middle school, but I’ve grown out of it since then
Conclusion
As I mentioned before, upon doing my research for my writeup, I found that I overestimated the group’s popularity and my perception of their popularity was warped because of where I and who I grew up with, being from a city on the west coast where there are more Mexicans than any other race. In spite of their popularity among Latinos with songs that have +10 million views on youtube, they never had an album chart on the Billboard 200, and even their most famous songs only peaked close to the bottom of the Billboard 100 charts. In spite of their lack of reach outside the Latino community, this album was huge for those of us who did grow up listening to it.
Questions
For non-Latinos, did you listen to or come across this album while growing up?
In light of NB RIdaz's use of the internet to push their albums as did other artists, do you feel that their practices are overlooked when discussing the history of artists using the internet to sell?
What is your favorite hip hop album by a Latino-American?
Favorite song on NB Ridaz.com?

2020.09.17 12:19 Farscape12Monkeys 2013 Borderland Beat article about the War for Tijuana and the feud that the Arellano Felix Brothers had against Chapo, Mayo, and Amado

This is part 1 of a three part series that was published in 2013
http://www.borderlandbeat.com/2013/05/the-war-for-tijuana-20-year-conflict.html
Armando Lopez was a well-known trafficker from Sinaloa, his area of influence was the Sonora desert where he used to land Cessna planes full of cocaine. Lopez was a close friend of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman and was sent to Tijuana to speak with Benjamin Arellano on behalf of “El Chapo”.
When “El Rayo” arrived at Tijuana, he went partying with his girlfriend. While both were drunk, they decided to crash the baptism party of one of Benjamin's daughters. Since they didn't carry an invitation, the guards at the door stopped them. This angered Lopez who started fighting with them. Ramon noticed this and without saying anything shot “El Rayo” in the head. After this, he picked up the body and threw it in the back of a Pick-up truck, drove to the outskirts of Tijuana and dumped it. After the death of “El Rayo” a group of hit men travelled to Sinaloa and killed Lopez's brothers and father, this was done in order to prevent possible retribution from Lopez´s family against Ramon.
Rigoberto Campos Salcido, cousin of the famed Manuel Salcido Uzeta aka “El Cochiloco” used to work in the plazas of Tijuana, Tecate, Mexicali and San Luis Rio Colorado without problems, when the Arellano Felix brothers grew in power they felt he was invading “their plaza”.
At first he was told to stop working in Tijuana but he refused to take orders from the young brothers. The Arellano's felt they needed to send a message and dispatched a group to Mexicali where Salcido was kidnapped. His captors took him to a ranch where they ripped his arms with a thresher.
Rigoberto barely saved his own life and ended up with prosthetic arms. However, he continued to visit Tijuana where his fate was sealed. In 1991 the Arellano Felix brothers got word that Salcido was betting on horse races in the outskirts of Tijuana, they knew the route he would use and set an ambush, this was the first major execution in which hundreds of bullets were fired to kill somebody in Mexico.
Manuel Salcido Uzeta aka “El Cochiloco” was the last leader of the Guadalajara cartel, the same legendary cartel formed by Miguel Angel “El Padrino” Felix Gallardo, Ernesto “Don Neto” Fonseca and Rafael “El Principe” Caro Quintero. Salcido used to control Jalisco and Colima, where he received large shipments of Cocaine from Pablo Escobar in Colombia. The Tijuana cartel didn't have any intentions of owning Guadalajara in that time, they didn't consider “El Cochiloco” as an enemy, yet.
Salcido's mistake-like many more after him- was greed; he stole 4 tons of cocaine from a Colombian ship destined to Ensenada, Baja California. The cocaine belonged to the Cali cartel and was sent to the Arellano Felix brothers in Tijuana, only half of the original 8 tons shipment arrived at Ensenada and Ramon Arellano refused to pay the missing 4 tons to the Colombians.
At the end a deal was made, if the Colombians killed Salcido, Ramon would pay the 8 tons to the Rodriguez Orejuela brothers. On October 9th, 1991, Salcido was driving his Ramcharger SUV when a group of hit men from Colombia and Tijuana ambushed him, his body received more than 70 gunshots. From then on, the Guadalajara plaza became property of the Tijuana cartel.
According to “El Cartel” by Jesus Blancornelas, Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada was the one who betrayed the brothers. In his book, Blancornelas claims “El Mayo” invited the brothers to celebrate in the Puerto Vallarta nightclub “Christine”. Benjamin, Ramon and Francisco Javier were ready to leave the hotel room when Zambada called Benjamin and said he wouldn't make It because he got a tip someone was trying to cross a shipment without Benjamin's approval.
Benjamin was angry and decided not to go out, however Ramon and Francisco Javier had already had plans for the night and went to the nightclub anyway. Ramon and “El Tigrillo” arrived at “Christine” with several Baja California state agents as bodyguards, Zambada didn't show up, but someone from Sinaloa did. Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman sent group of 50 men wearing military uniforms and bulletproof vests, when the group arrived at the nightclub they identified themselves as Federal Agents, the Tijuana cartel bodyguards identified as Baja California State Agents were shot to dead.
Inside, a hit man from San Diego's Barrio Logan by the name of David Barron noticed something wrong was about to happen and took the brothers to the bathroom. Barron killed some of the hit men from “El Chapo” and took their weapons, covering up for Ramon's escape.
Francisco Javier wasn't so lucky and was taken by Chapo's gunmen. Ramon and Benjamin thought “El Tigrillo” was already dead, but he wasn't, Chapo's men told him the war wasn't against him, nor the family but against Ramon and left him in the outskirts of Vallarta.
If we were to pinpoint one single event that changed the whole course of the Tijuana cartel´s history, it's got to be the shootout at Guadalajara's airport on May 24th, 1993. Seeking revenge for the "Christine" shootout, the Tijuana cartel searched for Joaquin Guzman everywhere, one of their sources told them that “El Chapo” was hiding in Guadalajara and Ramon travelled there along with a group of Barrio Logan hit men.
Their search proved fruitless and they decided to go back to Tijuana, then, someone informed Ramon that “Chapo” was to take a flight and would arrive in a white Mercury Grand Marquis to the airport. Ramon quickly went there with his team and when they saw a white Grand Marquis, they started the shootout, “Chapo” wasn't in that car, he was arriving in a green Cutlass when he heard the gunshots and run away from the scene. The passenger in the white Grand Marquis was none other than Catholic Church Cardinal Juan Jesus Posadas Ocampo.
Now that's the official story. The Catholic Church believes someone set Posadas up and that the Arellano brothers and Chapo had nothing to do with it. That version isn't confirmed yet, but Benjamin Arellano blamed the Mexican Government for Posada’s murder and claimed that both “Chapo” and the Tijuana cartel were framed. Anyway, this marked the beginning of the downfall for the brothers.
The Tijuana cartel, along with Joaquin Guzman Loera and his partner Hector Luis Palma Salazar became Mexico´s number one enemies after the death of Posadas Ocampo.
The Mexican Government needed to arrest ASAP at least one of them, “El Chapo” knew they were after him and decided to leave the country. Before doing so, he ordered his lieutenants to continue with the shipments and to protect his family, then he fled to Central America. He was spotted in El Salvador but the Salvadoran Government said they didn't have the resources to arrest him. Guzman knew of this and travelled to Guatemala where he paid 1 million USD to local authorities to protect him. Instead of doing so, the Guatemalan Army arrested him and expelled him to Mexico.
This somehow took some heat away from the Tijuana cartel leaders who at the moment were hiding in places like Russia, Spain and even in the USA.
In December 1993, the Tijuana cartel sent their “elite” group of killers, then known as “narcojuniors” to Mexico City, their mission was to gun down Amado Carrillo Fuentes aka “El Señor de los Cielos”.
Carrillo was the leader of the Juarez cartel and boss of both Ismael Zambada and Joaquin Guzman. With “El Chapo” in jail, the brothers saw this as an opportunity to kill the man they saw as their biggest threat.
Fabian Martinez aka “El Tiburon” or “9-9”, Federico Sanchez Valdez aka “G-1”, Merardo Leon Hinojosa aka “El Abulon” or “3-3” among others arrived at the Bali-Hai restaurant. They gunned down Carrillo's bodyguards at the door and tried to kill him but were repelled by Alcides Ramon Magaña aka “El Metro” and his team of hit men. Carrillo and his family were saved but Carrillo’s wife was wounded in the shootout. At the time, the cartels didn't mess with each other families, this escalated the war against the Tijuana cartel.
In June 1994, Ismael Zambada was to attend a birthday party in Guadalajara, Jalisco, the party was organized by known drug dealer Luis Enrique “El Kiki” Fernandez Uriarte, who was celebrating his daughter's 15 years of life. “El Mayo” was one of the many top drug lords invited to the party and the Tijuana cartel knew that. They thought the best way to kill him would be with C4 explosives, when the men in charge of the explosives were putting them in place, one of their cell phones rang and triggered the detonator, killing them instantly and hurting members of “Los Coyonqui” and “Los Huracanes del Norte” outside the Camino Real Hotel.
The official military report on the subject mentions that several Federal and State police commanders along with prominent politicians attended the party. Benjamin Arellano is considered the mastermind behind this attack.
Hector Palma Salazar aka “El Guero” was a violent man, he started his criminal career as a sicario, then became bodyguard of the famous Miguel Angel Felix Gallardo. Soon he was in charge of the cocaine route from Sinaloa to San Luis Rio Colorado, but he fell from Felix Gallardo's grace and his wife and children were killed.
Guadalupe Laija (Palma's wife) was decapitated by a Venezuelan drug lord who also took Palma's children and threw them alive from a bridge. All this just made the already violent Palma even worse, he became allied with “El Chapo” and ”El Mayo”, together they launched a campaign to conquer Sinaloa.
Palma Salazar's actions were considered at the time so brutal, that even the Arellano Felix family paid for several, full center-page adds in the Excelsior newspaper complaining that both “El Chapo” and “El Guero” were the ones responsible for the violent acts in Sinaloa and accusing them of not respecting women and children in their attacks.
“El Guero” was a powerful foe for the Arellano Felix brothers, but luck was on their side in 1995, June 22nd to be exact. One day Palma left Ciudad Obregon on his way to the Toluca airport, at mid-air he was told that the army was waiting for him so he ordered his pilot to land in Zacatecas, the army also raided the Zacatecas airport so Palma thought about landing in Guadalajara.
On his way he was again told that the army already arrived at the Guadalajara airport so he finally decided for Tepic's airport but as luck would have, his Learjet ran out of fuel and crashed near the Nayarit border.
Palma Salazar survived the accident but was badly hurt, then Federal Police commander Apolinar Pintor Aguilera saved him and took him to Zapopan were he was finally arrested after the army raided his house.
With both “El Chapo” and “El Guero” in jail, and “Mayo Zambada” on the run, the Arellano Felix brothers felt they had won the war in 1995.
On March 1st, 1996, an operation code named “Alacran” (Scorpion) was conducted in Tijuana by the Federal Police and Mexican Military, 22 homes were raided in search of Tijuana Cartel members. Many of the homes were destroyed and a minimal quantity of marijuana was seized, but no important members were arrested.
What made this operation relevant was the fact that then Federal Police commander Ernesto Ibarra Santes, was the one in charge of the operation. Ibarra Santes was in fact working for “El Mayo” Zambada and Amado Carrillo Fuentes.
Ernesto Ibarra Santes had just been named Federal Deputy Attorney General for the state of Baja California in August, 1996, he promised to capture the Arellano Felix brothers, and in fact, he really planned on doing so.
At the moment Ibarra Santes was seen as a good agent, but behind his “good work” in Tijuana, there was a dark story. Ibarra Santes was a friend and ally of Amado Carrillo Fuentes, according to witness testimony Ibarra Santes sold intelligence information about the Arellano Felix brothers to Amado Carrillo. He was so good at selling info on them that Amado soon made a close friendship with him.
It was in a reunion in Agua Prieta, Sonora, where Ibarra Santes gave Amado a yellow envelope with some wiretapped phone calls from Ramon Arellano. Witness accounts claim Amado offered Ibarra all the Brazilian girls in the party but Ibarra said he didn't have any time. Ibarra left and Amado continued talking with Mexican General Mario Arturo Acosta Chaparro, who advised Carrillo to not mess with the Arellano Felix brothers. That was the last time Carrillo and Ibarra Santes met.
One week after the reunion, Ibarra Santes traveled to Mexico City, the Arellano brothers knew of this trip and sent their best hit men to kill him. Alfredo Hodoyan Palacios aka “El Lobo”, Emilio Valdes Mainero and Fabian Martines Gonzalez aka “El Tiburon” followed Ibarra after he left Mexico City's airport.
Ibarra took two bodyguards with him and took a taxi towards his hotel. The Tijuana “Narcojuniors” caught up with him and stopped their white Cutlass in front of the taxi, Ibarra's bodyguards did not react in time and they were all killed along with the taxi driver. Ibarra was the only one who survived the initial attack but died on his way to the hospital.
The same witness recalls that Amado Carrillo knew of this when he was watching the news along “El Mayo” Zambada, and some Colombian drug lords in Mexico City. Amado supposedly cried his friend's death the whole night.
The late journalist Jesus Blancornelas narrated a series of reunions between Amado Carrillo and representatives of the Tijuana cartel, said reunions took place early in 1997.
The reunions were made following a recommendation by Mexican General Jesus Gutierrez Rebollo, the idea behind was to end all confrontations between both cartels. Amado was interested in doing so, but he had only one condition, to be handed those who shot at his wife in the Bali-Hai shootout.
The first reunion took place in Sonora, the Arellano Felix brothers sent Manuel Aguirre Galindo aka “El Caballo” to speak with Carrillo Fuentes. At first, negotiations initially had a good course, but then Amado told Manuel his sole condition, Manuel quickly called Ramon who simply said “NO”, he wasn't going to hand over three of his best hit men and more importantly to him, three of his friends.
Ramon then asked to speak with Amado over the cell phone but Carrillo refused. Negotiations continued anyway. Carrillo told Manuel Aguirre that he had to take a flight to Chile and he would be out of the country some time, Carrillo said he'll call “El Caballo” when he came back, after that, “El Caballo” left on his way to Tijuana.
The call never came, but the Arellano's knew Carrillo was back in Mexico. They knew he was to be admitted into a plastic surgery clinic to change his face and have a small liposuction.
Here's where things get murky, the following is the official account of that surgery.
On July 5th, Amado Carrillo arrived at Mexico City where he was admitted in a plastic surgery clinic, the surgery lasted more than 8 hrs, everything seemed to be OK, but on the early hours of the next day he woke up with major pain, a sedative was injected to him which caused a massive heart attack.
Just like with almost all deaths of high ranking criminals, Amado's death is full of conspiracy theories, some claim he really died in an accident, other's claim he was killed either by Colombian's or by the Tijuana cartel, some others claim Amado retired and fooled the DEA. Either way, Amado was gone and the Tijuana cartel had lost another enemy, maybe the most powerful enemy they ever faced.

2020.09.17 02:06 alexengineer_ Wife and I Can't Make Up Our Minds

My wife (28) and I (28) have been together for over 5 years now. Our relationship is filled with amazing memories but ever since we moved in together it feels like we've been going downhill. We almost immediately stopped having sex. I became emotionally dependent on her and started doing things just to please her even though she never seemed to be pleased. Nonetheless I decided to marry her. We talked about some of these issues before the wedding and almost called it off. But we decided to commit and work on the issues together. We just got married last october and were getting ready to celebrate our 1st year together.
Then last week she dropped the divorce bomb on me. She said she hasn't been happy for a long time. And that ever since we've been together she given up on her dreams, gained a lot of weight, and just tried to suck it up and live her routine life. But in the past year she's really gotten back on track with her goals. She's lost all of the weight she's put on, she's eating healthy, and she wants to move to San Diego and go to nursing school (we've been living in AZ the whole time.) She basically told me she's not willing to settle for a mediocre life any more and wants to chase her dreams and that I've been holding her back. She said I've never been supportive of her dreams and that I'm not proactive and she has to plan everything. It was pretty traumatic when she dropped that on me but I totally understand where shes' coming from and I agreed with her. I haven't been happy in the relationship either because of our intimacy issues.
At that point we decided to get a divorce. But then we took a step back for a breather. She went to visit her parents for the weekend as did I. I began to mentally prepare myself to be a better husband. Be more supportive of her dreams, be more proactive when planning things, and move to SD. And when she got back we talked and it seemed like she was on the same page. We slept in the same bed again that night and it seemed like we were going to be okay. I then thought of being proactive and decided we should take a trip up to the lakes this weekend so we could be alone and reconnect. When I told her about this plan she responded "well i still don't know about us..." This pretty much shot me down and made me second guess my re-commitment to her. She also didn't get much sleep our second night in the same bed so now I'm sleeping in the other bed again.
I know we shouldn't rush the decision to get divorced but how much longer do we need? I think it would be easier to just cut it off now while we're still young and early on the the marriage. I also need to do a lot of soul searching myself. I've never had to fight for anything in my life. It's all sort of been planned out and handed to me so I'm really lacking passion and that's something else she's looking for in a partner.

Gonna try my luck on here. I’m looking for a submissive partner or a FWB just looking for a reason to leave the house every now and then. I want to let out any stress I have gotten while working. It’s been getting a tad stressful at work and maybe for you as well so I figure we can let loose a bit.

Hello friends!
I hope you're having a great day =3 I'm not really sure how to not be awkward here... So, I'll just say I'm looking to connect with other poly women out there. I don't really have any other poly friends and have been too socially awkward to get involved in the meetups locally. Silly, I know! I'll include the obligatory yet universal statement; The past few months here have been a bit rough. I've really felt isolated working from home and without the ability to get out much.
For me.. I'm 33 years old, trans, and I've been poly for almost a decade with two long term partners... current status of which is a bit complicated. For the past two years I had been commuting to Dallas each week for work but COVID really put that on pause and I've been working from home ever since! Not having had a lot of time in San Diego over the past few years and the isolation brought on by quarantine has made it really hard to build new connections (I'd reckon I'm probably not alone with that D=). Also, feel free to check out my face here: https://www.instagram.com/context_missing/
In my day to day, I work from home as a technology consultant for some corporate groups in an airline. I'm pretty techie and a huge dork so the technology stuff comes easy for me but my real passion are the outdoors and photography. My big obsessions lately have been kayaking and camping whenever I get a chance. I've also been known to go on random road trips to camp out somewhere pretty.
Shoot me a message if you'd like to chat!

2020.09.15 21:47 MLouise0 My boyfriend doesn't want to hear about my traumatic past

Hi! New to this sub.
TW sexual abuse
I am having an issue with my(24F) boyfriend(24M). We have been together for about 4 years and have a pretty healthy relationship. Prior to him I was in a sexually abusive relationship with a guy for 2 years. It was the kind of abuse that I didn't recognize was abuse until I got with my current boyfriend and realized how fucked up I was.
I have talked about the past relationship with my boyfriend only a handful of times, and have noticed that every time I bring it up he changes the subject or is just not verbally responsive to what I'm saying. For example: yesterday we got into a conversation about sex trafficking(we live in San Diego and its pretty prevalent here), and I was saying that often people get involved in it without knowing whats really happening/can get raped and not realize it until later. He said he didn't understand how someone could not realize that they had been raped. I tried to explain that from my experience, I had been raped, and didn't realize because I had technically consented (after being guilted/manipulated/intoxicated), and I didn't realize that what had been happening was wrong until I got with current bf and he treated me with the respect that I had not been given before. He just had like basically no response to this and changed the subject.
I felt like that was uncool, and I told him it hurts my feelings when I try to talk about this traumatic thing that happened in my past and he just brushes it off. He said he just doesn't want to hear about my sexual past because it makes him feel bad to think about me having sex with someone else. And I was like yeah I get that but this was something that went on for a long time and still affects me today and I have no one to talk to about it and it still sucks for me. And he just basically kept saying "yeah I know but it makes me feel bad and I don't want to hear about it". I said I feel like he should put his feelings aside for me in this circumstance because its me who went through the trauma and I can't pretend like it just didn't happen like he can. And he just basically didn't agree with me that it was his job to talk to me about it and eventually we just kind of stopped engaging in the conversation together because it was going nowhere.
But i'm not over it and I'm mad. I feel like its selfish of him to decide he just doesn't want to deal with something that happened to ME and not him. Its not like I want to talk about it every day, or even every month. Its just something that I want to feel safe to go to him with if I need to. Like when I have some weird sensitivities when it comes to sex that he's confused by, I feel like I can't say "I do that/react like that because I was abused" when thats the truth because it'll make him upset. There are things that can be explained by telling him how I was treated before that could actually help our sex life be better, but he's just not mature enough to be able to listen to me so idk.
Does anyone have any advice/similar experience for how to deal with this? I feel like out of respect for myself I can't allow this subject to be ignored anymore.

Edit:
1: I'm not asking him to be my therapist. Like I said, I'm not trying to talk about it with him often, and I don't feel the need to talk about it often. My concern is that he's not willing to talk to me about it at all, period. I feel like to understand your partner you need to understand certain things about their past, and this is one of them for me, and he's not willing to listen at all.

Hello All, I am 28 year old 6 ft tall guy looking for a partner. Liberal, non-religious. I am down to earth straight forward kind of person, the one that people go to when they need an honest an opinion from after painting their house a weird shade of blue. I own a little condo on the north-side of Atlanta (ITP, if it matters), but i have been feeling the call to pick up stakes and move somewhere new. I currently work in IT Security which is a job I enjoy for the flexibility it provides.

My Interest include:
Food, particularly cooking with and or for friends and family. Having and sharing cool food experiences is one of my personal favorite joys in life.

Board Games: I have a big collection and its one of my favorite ways to pass an evening with good company.

Travel: New food, sights, museums, not working... whats not to love?

Exercise: I am into fitness and just started at a kickboxing gym which has been great so far! I also enjoy hiking, beach volleyball, and kickball!

Houseplants: My quarantine hobby of choice has been gathering house plants, I love the vibe that they bring to my place.

What am I looking for? Someone who wants to share in my interests, someone who has cool things in their life that they want to share with me, to adopt a dog with, see the world, to spend a month in France and learn to cook French food from an old Grandma. Basically a person that wants to find out what life has to offer with me. Open to local, or major cities across the US (Portland, San Diego, Austin, Others?) Or Canada if you want to arrange what ever the Canadian equivalent of a green card marriage is (serious).

Send me a message and lets talk!
Here is just a small sample of what I look: https://imgur.com/a/KJW7wgH

2020.09.14 18:14 SherlockBeaver Disappeared: Deanne Hastings My Leading Theory

In more than 75% of homicides, the victim knows their killer; nearly 30% of homicide perpetrators are family members. Among women who are murdered, more than half are murdered by their intimate partner. The force of emotions that exist in familial and romantic relationships are the most powerful that people experience in their lifetimes. Even what appear to be the closest of marriages and the most respectable of families have been known to experience fatal violence going all the way back to Cain and Abel.
This review of Deanne Hasting’s case takes a very close look at the actions and words of Deanne’s fiancé at the time she disappeared. Hopefully another review of the timeline and supporting facts will help lead us to what happened to Deanne. I rely most heavily on the information provided in interviews with Deanne's closest relatives from the ID Disappeared program (Season 8, episode 13 “The Long Way Home”) and The Vanished Podcast Episode 44, because it is the information of those who knew Deanne best or were the closest to Deanne when she disappeared, in their own words that we can listen to for ourselves.
Background
Deanne Hastings (maiden name Crider) was born 2/27/1980 in Pahrump, Nevada. She was a thirty-five year-old mother of three at the time she disappeared from Spokane, Washington on November 4, 2015. Deanne has a history of bipolar disorder, going missing and even attempted suicide. This webpage offers some real insight into Deanne’s struggles as well as an honest and loving tribute from an artist who was Deanne’s longtime friend and more.
Just months before Deanne vanished this seemingly final time, she had been out of touch with all of her friends and family for 6 days. A mostly redacted copy of a June 12, 2015 police incident report I obtained that was initiated by Deanne's eldest son, Hayden states the following:
"Hayden Green called Crime Check on June 12, 2015 at 20:38 to report that he hasn't heard from his mom, Deanne Hastings (listed Deanne Crider), since 6/9/15. Hayden has checked with other friends and family and no one has heard from her, not even her live in boyfriend Mike Tibbetts."
That case was closed when Deanne returned home on June 15, 2015. Apparently no search was conducted, nor was any media attention brought to Deanne’s disappearance on that occasion. Why not? Mike Tibbetts was Deanne’s live-in boyfriend when she went missing in June but apparently Mike was not as concerned then as he was in November.
Deanne and Mike became engaged around two months following her return from that episode and around two months before she disappeared. Did this change in their relationship status affect Mike’s actions in November? In his ID Disappeared interview Mike Tibbetts says: “In her past she would leave for a couple days or different times like that. She would respond here and there to texts and stuff.” Mike has been through this with Deanne before. Does Mike know where Deanne went during the times she disappeared before? According to Deanne’s artist friend, many times she would run to him wherever he was living, or he would come to where she was and they would hide from the world in a hotel. Apparently some of the times like this time, Deanne wandered the streets and made friends with strangers.
This time something kept Deanne from ever coming back to the people who loved her. Deanne had a long history of disappearing and of “episodes” where her mother says in her ID Disappeared interview that she sometimes didn’t even recognize her own daughter and Deanne’s brother Carson also describes Deanne as being like a different person during those times, full of foul and hurtful language. Unfortunately, these episodes had been occurring since Deanne’s later teenage years regardless of being on or off of any medication. Like many sufferers of bipolar disorder, Deanne clearly had a difficult time getting the right dose or combination of medications.
Although her brother Carson and Mike Tibbets refer to “the insurance” and “the insurance company” in their ID Disappeared interviews, the fact is that Deanne was on Medicaid due to her low income and other factors. One of the “credit” cards a person of interest in this case, Randy Riley, was caught using of Deanne’s was not a credit card according to police, but rather her EBT (food stamp) card which he used at a WinCo grocery store. Perhaps they did not wish to cause shame to Deanne (the only shame is that Deanne was denied her medication), but Mike Tibbetts states in his interview on ID Disappeared that he had offered to pay cash for Deanne’s medication so that she could have the preferred one and Deanne was “told” [by her caseworker?] that if they did that, Deanne would be dropped from “insurance coverage”. No one is dropped from private insurance coverage for not using their benefits and paying cash instead. When you go to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription, you will be charged the full price in cash unless you present an insurance card and nobody cares because you’re paying to have the insurance benefit whether you use it or not and when you don’t use it, that is money the insurance company does not have to reimburse. It is Medicaid recipients who have to demonstrate financial need. Obviously, it is a terrible shame that anyone would deny Deanne the particular medication her physician thought she needed. It may help some people deflect their own guilt and responsibility to spread blame around or feel validated in making political hay of this case, but what is important is finding Deanne.
The Disappearance
Tuesday, November 3, 2015
Deanne attends her first day of cosmetology school at Glen Dow Academy just six blocks from where her vehicle will later be found. Deanne spent the latter part of her evening with her now daughter-in-law (DIL) Melanie Green doing her nails and discussing their relationships with the men in their lives, as they frequently did.
9:30 pm
Melanie Green (DIL) goes home after spending the evening with Deanne doing nails and talking about their relationships. Deanne responds to Melanie’s text sometime between 9:30-10:00 pm when Melanie arrived home. Deanne’s last message to DIL says “Love you see you soon”.
10:00 pm
Deanne’s last reported use of her cell phone is a text to her son Hayden telling him that she went to school that day and that she hopes he is proud of her.
10:00-10:15 pm?
Deanne possibly executes a plan to leave the home she shares with her fiancé Mike Tibbetts by distracting him with a handwritten note about going to the store while she made her way to a downtown nightclub. If true, then for reasons known only to her Deanne chose to execute this plan instead of waiting for Mike to return home just a few minutes later and invite him to go with her to the club, or to tell Mike the truth about where she was going.
10:15 -10:30 pm
Mike arrives home from work (he worked 12:00 pm -10:00 pm shifts) and claims he found a note from Deanne inside the home that according to Tibbetts’ words on the ID Disappeared episode said:
“…that she had a good day, and she was just, got done doing nails and she was going to run to the store.”
That is a lot of information in a handwritten note that really only needed to say "Ran to the store BRB”. If Deanne were actually running to the store and coming home, she could have told Mike about her day when she returned. If Deanne actually meant to let Mike know that she was at the store in case he found the house empty when he came home or he wanted anything from the store, she would have text him. Deanne had just been texting her DIL and son minutes before she allegedly picked up a pen and wrote a note for Mike Tibbetts that he has never allowed police to see. Mike maintains that the handwritten note is the last thing Deanne ever wrote to him and that is why he cannot part with it, even though he has known that the note was a complete lie by the 4th day that Deanne was missing at the latest. Mike’s refusal to ever turn over either the alleged note or Deanne’s cell phone in the early days and weeks of the investigation into her disappearance, Mike’s actions are not those of a man who really wants to find out what happened to Deanne. Mike’s memories of the note seem to vary slightly. In this interview published 9 days after Deanne went missing Mike says:
“There was a note that said ‘Ran to store, just got done doing girls nails, had a great day,’"
The article further states: “It’s easy to memorize a simple note, especially when it’s the last time you’ve heard from the one you love.” Except Mike doesn’t “memorize” Deanne’s note. He paraphrases it each time and by February 2016 Mike seems to be remembering the night Deanne left home differently than he reported to police:
“The last thing I heard come out of her mouth was I love you," he said. "She went to the store that night, and I haven't seen her since.”
No mention of any note. The note matters because if it ever existed, it would support Mike’s version of the evening: that nothing at all was amiss between himself and Deanne and that whatever happened to cause Deanne to leave the house that night had nothing to do with Mike because it happened before he got home.
11:30 pm Mike gets concerned that Deanne is not home from the store because it is five minutes away. This would be a market now called Rosauer's Market. Out of concern, Mike says he drove to that store. Mike reports that the store was closed, so he returns home. Why does he drive to the store instead of texting, then calling Deanne’s phone? Did Mike do those things first and then drive to the store? He does not report doing so. This is the nearest market to their house. Most people know what time the nearest market to their house closes. Did Mike really think he would find Deanne at the closed market, rather than assume she must be making a stop some place else by then that was open later? Deanne could have gone to a Walgreens that was open late, or been picking up fast food or a pizza. It is interesting that within an hour Mike is already out on the street looking for Deanne on this night.
Wednesday, November 4, 2015
2:30-3:00 am
Mike tracks Deanne’s phone to a parking lot at 919 Sprague in downtown Spokane which is next to The Knitting Factory, a music venue just six blocks from the cosmetology school Deanne attended the morning before. If Mike was able to trace Deanne’s phone using location services, then he also had access to and surely would have looked at her phone usage online to see who she was communicating with besides him before she left their house. Mike should have easily been able to see that there were texts to her son’s and his girlfriend’s numbers in the minutes before he came home. Nonetheless, Mike never actually contacts either one of them himself to ask what Deanne might have said about what she was planning to do that night.
Mike decides to wait by Deanne’s car for the rest of the night. This is an interesting choice considering that the temperature was below freezing that night. Deanne had not been robbed, because Mike found her purse and cell phone secured inside the car. It seems reasonable to assume that Deanne had gone to the club next door and left her purse in the car so she could dance. If Deanne had consumed alcohol, it would be reasonable for her to have gotten a ride home or taken a cab. Mike’s choices seem to prioritize seeing who Deanne might be with when she returned to her car. Mike has claimed that he stayed with Deanne’s car all night in the freezing cold because he wanted to make sure her car did not get broken into with her purse and phone inside. That sounds like a reasonable, too except that after this first night Mike does not call AAA for locksmith service and a tow home. Instead Mike leaves Deanne’s car parked in that same spot in downtown Spokane with her purse and phone inside for *four more nights* beginning on Wednesday.
Overnight
We now know that Deanne Hastings met a grocery store employee of what is now called Yoke's Fresh Market on Spokane-Cheney Road, (known as Latham Trading Company at the time) and that Deanne spent the night with that grocery store employee (GSE). According to the GSE’s information, he met Deanne in front of The Knitting Factory and they went off to party together for the night. In the morning the GSE took Deanne in his car to the grocery store where he worked to purchase cigarettes. The GSE says when he got back to his car, Deanne was gone but she had left her keys behind. He drove around the shopping center, did not see Deanne and left. Deanne was just two miles from home then and she would end up walking most of those two miles in the direction of her home later that afternoon.
7:30-8:00 am
Mike calls Glen Dow Academy to see whether Deanne has shown up for her second day of classes. Glen Dow Academy is located six blocks from where Deanne left her vehicle. Mike must have made quite an impression on whoever he spoke to on the phone about Deanne, because the school owner offered to start making missing person flyers right away instead of minding their own business over an adult staying out all night. Mike says he then began to distribute the missing person flyers all over downtown Spokane. Deanne had been missing less than twelve hours at that point.
Maybe it was reasonable for Mike to call Deanne’s new school and let the administrators know that she had been out all night because Mike was genuinely worried about Deanne’s well being. On the other hand, Mike does not say that he tried calling any hospitals or jails, he does not try going home to see whether or not Deanne has returned there and most importantly, Mike also *does not call* the last two people Deanne Hastings’ phone records would indicate she texted in the minutes before Mike arrived home to (allegedly) find a handwritten note from Deanne about going to the store.
Mike does not go to work during the first twenty-four hours of Deanne’s disappearance. That is how alarmed he is by her being gone overnight this time. It is not clear how Mike accounts for his time and whereabouts during those first twenty-four hours of Deanne’s disappearance other than that he alternately went around the city with missing person flyers, waited at her car and drove the streets looking for Deanne. Every day after Wednesday Mike does go to work.
12:23 pm
Officer Davida Zinkgraf responds to numerous calls for a welfare check requested by strangers in the shopping center parking lot of what is now Yoke’s Fresh Market. These witnesses reported a disoriented and possibly intoxicated/addled woman who had entered a salon and called a woman working there “Mommy", who was now laying on the ground and claiming to witnesses that she may have been drugged, kidnapped and beaten. Deanne would not speak to EMTs or police when they arrived, nor would she give anyone her name or say where she lived although she did tell the ladies attempting to intervene on her behalf that she did not want to go home. When Deanne will not repeat any of the claims about being drugged or beaten to police, does not appear beaten, *refuses to give her name* and then walks away from Officer Zinkgraf, Officer Zinkgraf continues to observe Deanne for another 20 minutes and then reluctantly leaves. Deanne has civil rights and Officer Zinkgraf has an entire city to look after. Deanne is not required to identify herself to police when she is not suspected of any crime. Police cannot detain Deanne for telling wild stories to strangers, nor apparently even for public intoxication because as Officer Zinkgraf explains in the ID Disappeared episode, Spokane does not have a law prohibiting public intoxication. There is also no law in Washington that allows authorities to remand citizens for psychiatric evaluation because of statements by strangers. Civil commitment requires family members to swear out an affidavit that they have observed their family member being a threat to themselves or others. Yes, it is tragically unfortunate that Deanne could not be intervened upon by police and EMT services on the day she disappeared, but hopefully everyone can stop asking how they could have just let Deanne be on her way, because that question has been asked and answered.
12:30 pm
In Officer Zingkraf’s continued observation of Deanne after their initial contact, Deanne enters the grocery store where she uses her debit card to purchase: energy drinks, string cheese, birthday candles, cigarettes and vodka. Mike, who has been out distributing missing person flyers and/or waiting by Deanne’s car, says that he received an alert on his phone that Deanne’s card was used at the grocery store where the GSE works. Did Mike have alerts set on the card for every transaction Deanne made like parents do when they give their teenager a credit card? Mike takes the alert not as notice of potential theft following a crime against Deanne, but as confirmation that Deanne is well and making a purchase. This is why Mike does not rush to the store, he isn’t actually concerned about Deanne’s safety or what has happened to her. He means to see who she is with and confront her. That is why even though Mike apparently believes that Deanne is well and making a purchase, instead of going home he decides to return to/continue to stay with with Deanne’s car. Mike says he believed Deanne would come back to her vehicle and his priority isn’t to get warm or get some sleep, it’s still to see who Deanne is with and confront her. Mike was not going to wait for Deanne to get home.
Sometime after 12:30 pm
Deanne encounters Randy Riley (RR) and his friend “James” on their way to a storage unit RR has rented that is within two blocks of the grocery store where Deanne has just made her purchases. According to both RR and James they hung out with Deanne for a few hours. Storage facility surveillance shows the three of them smiling and interacting in a very friendly manner. The two men are on bicycles. Neither of the men appears to have access to any vehicles of their own with which to move personal belongings, let alone a body (Deanne’s brother Carson confirms this in the Vanished podcast) and none of the trio seem to make any effort to make use of Deanne’s vehicle.
1:30 pm
Storage surveillance shows Randy Riley and Deanne and James leaving the storage facility.
2:30 pm
(information received by police November 25, 2015 three weeks after Deanne disappears and after Randy Riley’s name was released to the media) RR’s landlord who was in the process of evicting him now claims that she remembers seeing Deanne with RR and another man on Wednesday, November 4th near where he claims that he left her and that Deanne was sitting or lying on the ground again.
Another woman who lived near Inland Empire Way believes that she saw Deanne walking with RR and James on I.E. Way and lying on the ground on that day, as well. That witness claims that she was concerned enough to stop and ask Deanne if she was ok, since she was lying on the ground. Deanne told this witness that she was just upset because she was “going through a divorce” and she seemed in control enough of herself that this neighbor moved on. RR does not deny that he was with Deanne on the last day she was seen nor does he deny that he is the last person willing to admit to having seen her.
2:30-4:00 pm
A few hours after Mike learns Deanne used her card at the grocery store, he finally decides to leave Deanne's car downtown and go to that store with Deanne's missing person flyers in hand. There Mike has his first encounter with the GSE in the parking lot outside of the store. The GSE says Deanne looks familiar, but that it's probably not the same girl. It is possible Deanne did not look exactly like her photos on the night she left home because she was disheveled, but it is also possible that the GSE did not want to immediately admit to a frantic man with a missing person flyer of his fiancée who did not appear missing when he spent the night with her. The GSE may have been wary - for good reason - of becoming involved in what appeared to be a domestic situation.
Mike enters the grocery store and asks another store employee if he would be able to look at store surveillance and according to Mike in his Disappeared interview:
“...she said I had to wait and speak with the manager there, so I called the next day (Thursday) and he said I could come in that Saturday and look through it.”
Mike does not report taking the missing person flyers to the surrounding businesses in the shopping center where the grocery store was located, but maybe he did. It would have made sense for him to do so, since he claims he was papering downtown Spokane with the flyers and the shopping center was now Deanne’s most likely last known location. If Mike had contacted the surrounding businesses to leave flyers, he would have been told about Deanne being at the salon calling people “Mommy” and that police and EMTs had been dispatched for the woman on his flyer. Mike would have been told that Deanne was alone and on foot. He would have immediately searched the surrounding neighborhood for Deanne.
At this point on Wednesday afternoon after 2:30 pm Mike puts himself at the grocery store where Deanne made her last purchases. He is less than two miles from where Randy Riley and James claim to have parted ways with Deanne and approximately 1000ft from his home with Deanne. A Google maps search shows that there are very few streets in that area.
The time period from Wednesday afternoon into Thursday deserves a microscope on it, because this is when Deanne actually goes missing. There is one person who according to his own information was devoting himself to nothing else except tracking down Deanne Hastings during that time period and that person is Mike Tibbetts.
Thursday, November 5, 2015
Mike finally reports Deanne missing to police on Thursday morning. He then calls the manager of the grocery store where Deanne’s debit card was last used. In the ID Disappeared episode Mike calmly tells us that the grocery store manager told him over the phone on Thursday that he could come in two days later to look through the video. Mike presses neither the manager of the store nor police to review the video surveillance immediately that would either confirm Deanne was using her own debit card, or point to a suspect in her disappearance. There is apparently none of the urgency that Mike felt when contacting Deanne’s school the morning before. Although he has allegedly been putting up missing person flyers all over town since the day before, Mike now seems to easily accept that no one will review the surveillance video until Saturday and he returns to work. Mike has still not called the last two people Deanne’s phone sent and received texts from: Deanne’s son and her DIL, nor does he call Deanne’s mother who lives only an hour away with Deanne’s two younger children to ask whether she has heard from Deanne. Instead, Mike goes to the media for help in *promoting* Deanne's disappearance. Deanne’s mother had to learn that her daughter was missing from Deanne’s brother who lived in Texas, who had to learn that his sister was missing when he was called by a friend in Spokane who saw the news report on tv. That makes no sense if Mike was genuinely concerned with locating Deanne on Wednesday and Thursday. Mike tells interviewers that he didn’t wish to alarm Deanne’s family. That makes no sense when he is attempting to locate Deanne by all of these other alarming means. When Deanne was out of touch with all her friends and family including Mike Tibbetts for what turned out to be 6 days in June according to the above-referenced police incident report, Mike Tibbetts never did report Deanne missing (nor did he launch a frantic search and contact the media), her son did and Deanne's teenaged son Hayden had the sense to contact friends and family before he made such a report to police.
Saturday, November 7, 2015
Mike is able to view the surveillance video at the grocery store where Deanne made her purchases. She is alone on video, but clearly disoriented as other witnesses described. Mike does not request police to accompany him to view or take control of a copy of the video.
Sunday, November 8, 2015
6:00 am
Mike gets a call from the GSE who has been following media coverage of Deanne’s disappearance. The GSE now says he thinks Deanne is a girl he spent the night with on Tuesday/Wednesday and he agrees to meet with Mike to answer more questions.
10:30-11:00 am
The GSE meets with Mike and gives him Deanne's keys. Now Mike says he is finally able to retrieve Deanne’s phone and move her vehicle from the parking lot in downtown Spokane. Mike has made no effort in four days’ time to contact AAA or any other method of locksmith/tow service to secure and remove Deanne’s belongings or vehicle from the parking lot where she left it the night she left home. Again, this is telling since Mike originally felt that securing Deanne’s vehicle required him to stay with the vehicle all night in freezing temperatures.
In his ID Disappeared appearance Mike says of his meeting with the Grocery Store Employee:
“He was very not impressive at all.”
It’s hard to imagine in what way the Grocery Store Employee could have been impressive in this case. What sort of a presentation was Mike expecting the GSE to wow him with? Two years after the fact, Mike still shows seething jealousy/disgust on camera that Deanne went home with this... grocery store employee she met on the street outside of a nightclub, when he was prepared to make her his wife. In his ID Disappeared interview Mike says:
“Obviously I asked him if he had gotten together with her or anything like that. He said that he didn’t, that he had a girlfriend and all those things. I just didn’t believe him. He just didn’t, I don’t know. Just something about him.”
Mike seems like his skin is crawling thinking about his fiancée with this man. Who could blame him?
Sometime after 5:00 pm
Mike raises some sort of mini-posse consisting of a couple of friends and they go to the GSE’s house pretending in super-dramatic fashion like he was going to force his way in if he had to, without the police. The GSE cooperates with Mike and no sign of Deanne is found.
December 10, 2015
Randy Riley (RR) is arrested for identity theft. RR admits to using Deanne’s credit/debit cards. RR first states that Deanne gave him the cards to get something to eat. According to RR’s second version of how he obtained Deanne’s credit cards, on November 5, 2015, he was in a truck belonging to a friend who was helping him move belongings from a nearby the apartment from whence RR was being evicted, to his nearby storage unit where he and “James” had hung out with Deanne the day before. RR claims that he came across Deanne’s coat containing her wallet (or at least whatever credit cards and ID she had taken with her when she left her purse and phone in her vehicle) and according to her brother Carson in the Vanished podcast, RR finds Deanne’s coat and shoes and he takes those, as well. RR claims that these items were in the approximate area where he and “James” had last seen Deanne. In an interview with RR in jail with local affiliate KHQ, RR allegedly claims that he disposed of Deanne’s coat and shoes and threw her ID out in downtown Spokane to make it appear that she had been somewhere other than the last place he and his associate James claim they saw Deanne near “the hill”. It should have been easy enough for police to locate the friend with the truck to corroborate the second version of RR coming to have the cards and also whether or not a PIN number was required in order to use the cards.
There is much speculation that because RR is the last reported person to have seen Deanne alive and because he lied at least once about how he obtained her credit cards, that he must be involved in Deanne’s disappearance. A criminal background check shows RR has a history of drug use and theft (but not robbery) in support his drug habit. RR’s only violent offenses are two domestic violence charges which sounds serious, except those appear to be tied to his loved ones’ intervening in his drug use. One of the charges involved a girlfriend and one from 2005 involved Randy’s own Mother, but this coincides with his use of drugs and drug convictions. As of the time Deanne went missing in 2015 when RR was being evicted from his apartment, apparently all was forgiven by Riley’s Mother because she was allowing him to move in with her while he got his feet back under him. That is where police located him living with a girlfriend when they sought him out for an interview regarding the use of Deanne’s credit cards. RR has never been charged with a forcible felony, nor any sex crime. Randy Riley seems to be just your average petty criminal. In his interview with Spokane detectives, RR comes off as not being kind of a dipshit and a weakling who probably sniffs paint, not a sophisticated criminal who anyone else would be willing to assist by loaning him their vehicle, let alone assisting him in disposing of a body. RR got around on a bicycle. If RR lied about how he obtained Deanne’s credit cards, maybe it was just to avoid a robbery charge, which is a forcible felony and a very serious offense compared with anything on his previous record.
Maybe when RR went to go see whether Deanne was planning to come back out of the bushes and continue walking with him and James, he did tussle with her or otherwise removed the cards from Deanne's coat pocket. James maintains that he has no idea how RR came to have Deanne’s credit cards and he was never on video with RR using the cards, so however the theft and use of the cards came to have happened, it does not appear to be any conspiracy between RR and James.
What if Deanne did lose her coat in a struggle with someone else? Maybe someone who was known to be desperately looking for her all over town, who may have felt betrayed by Deanne falling off the wagon and staying out all night?
The Relationship Between Deanne Hastings and Mike Tibbetts
“Within a couple days of meeting her, I knew she was the one.” - Mike Tibbetts, ID Disappeared interview
Within a couple of days of meeting Deanne Hastings, Mike Tibbetts could not possibly have known what being in a committed, longterm relationship with her might entail. Mike Tibbetts was overwhelmed by Deanne’s beauty upon meeting her and he intended to possess her and be her answer to everything.
Mike continues:
“We got along great. I think we had one argument about wheat bread and white bread... which one to buy. I mean other than that we rarely ever fought.”
Mike is being disingenuous and attempting to seriously mislead us for his own purposes. Mike says he thinks (maybe) he and Deanne had “one” argument. So according to Mike’s information, he and Deanne had anywhere from zero to one argument, but if they did have one argument instead of zero, then Mike recalls that the subject matter of that argument was “about wheat bread and white bread… which one to buy.” To be clear, “rarely ever” fighting is not the same thing as maybe zero to one time arguing about purchasing bread. Mike is trying to convince us of a lie that he only needs to convince us of if he has other lies he needs to convince us of.
Amanda Ladd (Deanne’s longtime best friend) shared text messages with police that show Deanne had been telling her best friend for weeks that she wanted to leave Mike. In texts shown on the episode of the ID Disappeared episode, Deanne says she is “done” and that she believed Mike was drugging her. When confronted with this information, Mike then admits that in the weeks before her disappearance, Deanne was hearing voices and thought neighbors and an ex-boyfriend were breaking into their house, drugging the water supply and/or trying to kill her and she even accused Mike of being in on the conspiracy. Deanne does not mention the neighbors or an ex-boyfriend to Amanda Ladd, only Mike. None of what Mike ends up describing is within the realm of everything being “fine” prior to Deanne’s disappearance, anyway. Why didn’t Mike take Deanne to a hospital or at least make an appointment with her doctor if he believed she was hearing voices and accusing half the people in her life of conspiring against her instead of just him?
Deanne’s now daughter-in-law Melanie Green (DIL) states in her ID Disappeared interview that although she never witnessed any fights between Deanne and Mike, Deanne would regularly text message her DIL using a “girl code” they had about doing nails, for when she needed to talk about the relationship troubles with Mike that she was having. What were the nature of Deanne’s issues with Mike that she confided in her DIL about? Melanie Green never mentions wheat bread OR white bread.
Mike wants us to believe that even when Deanne went missing for 6 days in June and had to be reported missing to police by her son because no one including Mike had heard from her for days, that he and Deanne did not exchange any words of argument. Mike wants us to believe that when Deanne accused him of drugging her and even trying to kill her, that his and Deanne's conversation(s) about those issues were less dramatic than a conversation over whether to purchase wheat or white bread. Mike wants us to believe that even when he was able to confirm that Deanne had just spent the night with another man - who Mike says he does not believe was honest when he told Mike that he and Deanne had not "gotten together” - that Mike was going to be ok with that. An honest answer from Mike Tibbetts would have been that he and Deanne had many ups and downs in their short, whirlwind relationship due to Deanne’s ongoing issues with bipolar disorder, that they had been at odds many times before and that this “episode” could have very well ended their relationship had Deanne not gone permanently missing. Instead, Mike chooses to be completely dishonest and that is a huge red flag in a case like this.
Artist Michael Carini of San Diego, CA was a longtime friend of Deanne’s. On the previously linked webpage where he pays tribute to Deanne, he says she had recently contacted him and said that the relationship she was in with Mike was “unhealthy”:
“Shortly before her final disappearance in 2015, she contacted me and told me she had to get out of her current relationship because it was unhealthy. Deanne was known to tell stories and bend the truth, but I felt the sincerity in her voice. She had been clean and sober for a long time and really seemed to be turning her life around.”
January 2016
Randy Riley’s friend James who had walked with RR and Deanne on the day she disappeared and who was not charged with any crime related to her disappearance or the use of her cards, contacted Amanda Ladd via the Missing Deanne Facebook page to say that he wanted to speak with anyone who wanted to speak with him about Deanne and that he would tell them anything they wanted to know. He claims he does not know Randy very well and James stuck to his same story: Deanne went up the hill to relieve herself, Randy went to check on her for several minutes and then returned ALONE and the two men proceeded on their way. According to Deanne’s brother Carson’s account of the phone call, James tells Deanne’s brother words to the effect of “I can’t believe she didn’t make it home, she was so close to home, she was going to walk up the hill. I can’t believe she didn’t make it home.” James seemed genuinely desperate to reassure Deanne’s family that whatever happened to Deanne did in fact happen after he and Randy Riley left her on the hill near the home she shared with Mike Tibbetts.

2020.09.14 18:08 SherlockBeaver Disappeared: Deanne Hastings My Leading Theory

In more than 75% of homicides, the victim knows their killer; nearly 30% of homicide perpetrators are family members. Among women who are murdered, more than half are murdered by their intimate partner. The force of emotions that exist in familial and romantic relationships are the most powerful that people experience in their lifetimes. Even what appear to be the closest of marriages and the most respectable of families have been known to experience fatal violence going all the way back to Cain and Abel.
This review of Deanne Hasting’s case takes a very close look at the actions and words of Deanne’s fiancé at the time she disappeared. Hopefully another review of the timeline and supporting facts will help lead us to what happened to Deanne. I rely most heavily on the information provided in interviews with Deanne's closest relatives from the ID Disappeared program (Season 8, episode 13 “The Long Way Home”) and The Vanished Podcast Episode 44, because it is the information of those who knew Deanne best or were the closest to Deanne when she disappeared, in their own words that we can listen to for ourselves.
Background
Deanne Hastings (maiden name Crider) was born 2/27/1980 in Pahrump, Nevada. She was a thirty-five year-old mother of three at the time she disappeared from Spokane, Washington on November 4, 2015. Deanne has a history of bipolar disorder, going missing and even attempted suicide. This webpage offers some real insight into Deanne’s struggles as well as an honest and loving tribute from an artist who was Deanne’s longtime friend and more.
Just months before Deanne vanished this seemingly final time, she had been out of touch with all of her friends and family for 6 days. A mostly redacted copy of a June 12, 2015 police incident report I obtained that was initiated by Deanne's eldest son, Hayden states the following:
"Hayden Green called Crime Check on June 12, 2015 at 20:38 to report that he hasn't heard from his mom, Deanne Hastings (listed Deanne Crider), since 6/9/15. Hayden has checked with other friends and family and no one has heard from her, not even her live in boyfriend Mike Tibbetts."
That case was closed when Deanne returned home on June 15, 2015. Apparently no search was conducted, nor was any media attention brought to Deanne’s disappearance on that occasion. Why not? Mike Tibbetts was Deanne’s live-in boyfriend when she went missing in June but apparently Mike was not as concerned then as he was in November.
Deanne and Mike became engaged around two months following her return from that episode and around two months before she disappeared. Did this change in their relationship status affect Mike’s actions in November? In his ID Disappeared interview Mike Tibbetts says: “In her past she would leave for a couple days or different times like that. She would respond here and there to texts and stuff.” Mike has been through this with Deanne before. Does Mike know where Deanne went during the times she disappeared before? According to Deanne’s artist friend, many times she would run to him wherever he was living, or he would come to where she was and they would hide from the world in a hotel. Apparently some of the times like this time, Deanne wandered the streets and made friends with strangers.
This time something kept Deanne from ever coming back to the people who loved her. Deanne had a long history of disappearing and of “episodes” where her mother says in her ID Disappeared interview that she sometimes didn’t even recognize her own daughter and Deanne’s brother Carson also describes Deanne as being like a different person during those times, full of foul and hurtful language. Unfortunately, these episodes had been occurring since Deanne’s later teenage years regardless of being on or off of any medication. Like many sufferers of bipolar disorder, Deanne clearly had a difficult time getting the right dose or combination of medications.
Although her brother Carson and Mike Tibbets refer to “the insurance” and “the insurance company” in their ID Disappeared interviews, the fact is that Deanne was on Medicaid due to her low income and other factors. One of the “credit” cards a person of interest in this case, Randy Riley, was caught using of Deanne’s was not a credit card according to police, but rather her EBT (food stamp) card which he used at a WinCo grocery store. Perhaps they did not wish to cause shame to Deanne (the only shame is that Deanne was denied her medication), but Mike Tibbetts states in his interview on ID Disappeared that he had offered to pay cash for Deanne’s medication so that she could have the preferred one and Deanne was “told” [by her caseworker?] that if they did that, Deanne would be dropped from “insurance coverage”. No one is dropped from private insurance coverage for not using their benefits and paying cash instead. When you go to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription, you will be charged the full price in cash unless you present an insurance card and nobody cares because you’re paying to have the insurance benefit whether you use it or not and when you don’t use it, that is money the insurance company does not have to reimburse. It is Medicaid recipients who have to demonstrate financial need. Obviously, it is a terrible shame that anyone would deny Deanne the particular medication her physician thought she needed. It may help some people deflect their own guilt and responsibility to spread blame around or feel validated in making political hay of this case, but what is important is finding Deanne.
The Disappearance
Tuesday, November 3, 2015
Deanne attends her first day of cosmetology school at Glen Dow Academy just six blocks from where her vehicle will later be found. Deanne spent the latter part of her evening with her now daughter-in-law (DIL) Melanie Green doing her nails and discussing their relationships with the men in their lives, as they frequently did.
9:30 pm
Melanie Green (DIL) goes home after spending the evening with Deanne doing nails and talking about their relationships. Deanne responds to Melanie’s text sometime between 9:30-10:00 pm when Melanie arrived home. Deanne’s last message to DIL says “Love you see you soon”.
10:00 pm
Deanne’s last reported use of her cell phone is a text to her son Hayden telling him that she went to school that day and that she hopes he is proud of her.
10:00-10:15 pm?
Deanne possibly executes a plan to leave the home she shares with her fiancé Mike Tibbetts by distracting him with a handwritten note about going to the store while she made her way to a downtown nightclub. If true, then for reasons known only to her Deanne chose to execute this plan instead of waiting for Mike to return home just a few minutes later and invite him to go with her to the club, or to tell Mike the truth about where she was going.
10:15 -10:30 pm
Mike arrives home from work (he worked 12:00 pm -10:00 pm shifts) and claims he found a note from Deanne inside the home that according to Tibbetts’ words on the ID Disappeared episode said:
“…that she had a good day, and she was just, got done doing nails and she was going to run to the store.”
That is a lot of information in a handwritten note that really only needed to say "Ran to the store BRB”. If Deanne were actually running to the store and coming home, she could have told Mike about her day when she returned. If Deanne actually meant to let Mike know that she was at the store in case he found the house empty when he came home or he wanted anything from the store, she would have text him. Deanne had just been texting her DIL and son minutes before she allegedly picked up a pen and wrote a note for Mike Tibbetts that he has never allowed police to see. Mike maintains that the handwritten note is the last thing Deanne ever wrote to him and that is why he cannot part with it, even though he has known that the note was a complete lie by the 4th day that Deanne was missing at the latest. Mike’s refusal to ever turn over either the alleged note or Deanne’s cell phone in the early days and weeks of the investigation into her disappearance, Mike’s actions are not those of a man who really wants to find out what happened to Deanne. Mike’s memories of the note seem to vary slightly. In this interview published 9 days after Deanne went missing Mike says:
“There was a note that said ‘Ran to store, just got done doing girls nails, had a great day,’"
The article further states: “It’s easy to memorize a simple note, especially when it’s the last time you’ve heard from the one you love.” Except Mike doesn’t “memorize” Deanne’s note. He paraphrases it each time and by February 2016 Mike seems to be remembering the night Deanne left home differently than he reported to police:
“The last thing I heard come out of her mouth was I love you," he said. "She went to the store that night, and I haven't seen her since.”
No mention of any note. The note matters because if it ever existed, it would support Mike’s version of the evening: that nothing at all was amiss between himself and Deanne and that whatever happened to cause Deanne to leave the house that night had nothing to do with Mike because it happened before he got home.
11:30 pm Mike gets concerned that Deanne is not home from the store because it is five minutes away. This would be a market now called Rosauer's Market. Out of concern, Mike says he drove to that store. Mike reports that the store was closed, so he returns home. Why does he drive to the store instead of texting, then calling Deanne’s phone? Did Mike do those things first and then drive to the store? He does not report doing so. This is the nearest market to their house. Most people know what time the nearest market to their house closes. Did Mike really think he would find Deanne at the closed market, rather than assume she must be making a stop some place else by then that was open later? Deanne could have gone to a Walgreens that was open late, or been picking up fast food or a pizza. It is interesting that within an hour Mike is already out on the street looking for Deanne on this night.
Wednesday, November 4, 2015
2:30-3:00 am
Mike tracks Deanne’s phone to a parking lot at 919 Sprague in downtown Spokane which is next to The Knitting Factory, a music venue just six blocks from the cosmetology school Deanne attended the morning before. If Mike was able to trace Deanne’s phone using location services, then he also had access to and surely would have looked at her phone usage online to see who she was communicating with besides him before she left their house. Mike should have easily been able to see that there were texts to her son’s and his girlfriend’s numbers in the minutes before he came home. Nonetheless, Mike never actually contacts either one of them himself to ask what Deanne might have said about what she was planning to do that night.
Mike decides to wait by Deanne’s car for the rest of the night. This is an interesting choice considering that the temperature was below freezing that night. Deanne had not been robbed, because Mike found her purse and cell phone secured inside the car. It seems reasonable to assume that Deanne had gone to the club next door and left her purse in the car so she could dance. If Deanne had consumed alcohol, it would be reasonable for her to have gotten a ride home or taken a cab. Mike’s choices seem to prioritize seeing who Deanne might be with when she returned to her car. Mike has claimed that he stayed with Deanne’s car all night in the freezing cold because he wanted to make sure her car did not get broken into with her purse and phone inside. That sounds like a reasonable, too except that after this first night Mike does not call AAA for locksmith service and a tow home. Instead Mike leaves Deanne’s car parked in that same spot in downtown Spokane with her purse and phone inside for *four more nights* beginning on Wednesday.
Overnight
We now know that Deanne Hastings met a grocery store employee of what is now called Yoke's Fresh Market on Spokane-Cheney Road, (known as Latham Trading Company at the time) and that Deanne spent the night with that grocery store employee (GSE). According to the GSE’s information, he met Deanne in front of The Knitting Factory and they went off to party together for the night. In the morning the GSE took Deanne in his car to the grocery store where he worked to purchase cigarettes. The GSE says when he got back to his car, Deanne was gone but she had left her keys behind. He drove around the shopping center, did not see Deanne and left. Deanne was just two miles from home then and she would end up walking most of those two miles in the direction of her home later that afternoon.
7:30-8:00 am
Mike calls Glen Dow Academy to see whether Deanne has shown up for her second day of classes. Glen Dow Academy is located six blocks from where Deanne left her vehicle. Mike must have made quite an impression on whoever he spoke to on the phone about Deanne, because the school owner offered to start making missing person flyers right away instead of minding their own business over an adult staying out all night. Mike says he then began to distribute the missing person flyers all over downtown Spokane. Deanne had been missing less than twelve hours at that point.
Maybe it was reasonable for Mike to call Deanne’s new school and let the administrators know that she had been out all night because Mike was genuinely worried about Deanne’s well being. On the other hand, Mike does not say that he tried calling any hospitals or jails, he does not try going home to see whether or not Deanne has returned there and most importantly, Mike also *does not call* the last two people Deanne Hastings’ phone records would indicate she texted in the minutes before Mike arrived home to (allegedly) find a handwritten note from Deanne about going to the store.
Mike does not go to work during the first twenty-four hours of Deanne’s disappearance. That is how alarmed he is by her being gone overnight this time. It is not clear how Mike accounts for his time and whereabouts during those first twenty-four hours of Deanne’s disappearance other than that he alternately went around the city with missing person flyers, waited at her car and drove the streets looking for Deanne. Every day after Wednesday Mike does go to work.
12:23 pm
Officer Davida Zinkgraf responds to numerous calls for a welfare check requested by strangers in the shopping center parking lot of what is now Yoke’s Fresh Market. These witnesses reported a disoriented and possibly intoxicated/addled woman who had entered a salon and called a woman working there “Mommy", who was now laying on the ground and claiming to witnesses that she may have been drugged, kidnapped and beaten. Deanne would not speak to EMTs or police when they arrived, nor would she give anyone her name or say where she lived although she did tell the ladies attempting to intervene on her behalf that she did not want to go home. When Deanne will not repeat any of the claims about being drugged or beaten to police, does not appear beaten, *refuses to give her name* and then walks away from Officer Zinkgraf, Officer Zinkgraf continues to observe Deanne for another 20 minutes and then reluctantly leaves. Deanne has civil rights and Officer Zinkgraf has an entire city to look after. Deanne is not required to identify herself to police when she is not suspected of any crime. Police cannot detain Deanne for telling wild stories to strangers, nor apparently even for public intoxication because as Officer Zinkgraf explains in the ID Disappeared episode, Spokane does not have a law prohibiting public intoxication. There is also no law in Washington that allows authorities to remand citizens for psychiatric evaluation because of statements by strangers. Civil commitment requires family members to swear out an affidavit that they have observed their family member being a threat to themselves or others. Yes, it is tragically unfortunate that Deanne could not be intervened upon by police and EMT services on the day she disappeared, but hopefully everyone can stop asking how they could have just let Deanne be on her way, because that question has been asked and answered.
12:30 pm
In Officer Zingkraf’s continued observation of Deanne after their initial contact, Deanne enters the grocery store where she uses her debit card to purchase: energy drinks, string cheese, birthday candles, cigarettes and vodka. Mike, who has been out distributing missing person flyers and/or waiting by Deanne’s car, says that he received an alert on his phone that Deanne’s card was used at the grocery store where the GSE works. Did Mike have alerts set on the card for every transaction Deanne made like parents do when they give their teenager a credit card? Mike takes the alert not as notice of potential theft following a crime against Deanne, but as confirmation that Deanne is well and making a purchase. This is why Mike does not rush to the store, he isn’t actually concerned about Deanne’s safety or what has happened to her. He means to see who she is with and confront her. That is why even though Mike apparently believes that Deanne is well and making a purchase, instead of going home he decides to return to/continue to stay with with Deanne’s car. Mike says he believed Deanne would come back to her vehicle and his priority isn’t to get warm or get some sleep, it’s still to see who Deanne is with and confront her. Mike was not going to wait for Deanne to get home.
Sometime after 12:30 pm
Deanne encounters Randy Riley (RR) and his friend “James” on their way to a storage unit RR has rented that is within two blocks of the grocery store where Deanne has just made her purchases. According to both RR and James they hung out with Deanne for a few hours. Storage facility surveillance shows the three of them smiling and interacting in a very friendly manner. The two men are on bicycles. Neither of the men appears to have access to any vehicles of their own with which to move personal belongings, let alone a body (Deanne’s brother Carson confirms this in the Vanished podcast) and none of the trio seem to make any effort to make use of Deanne’s vehicle.
1:30 pm
Storage surveillance shows Randy Riley and Deanne and James leaving the storage facility.
2:30 pm
(information received by police November 25, 2015 three weeks after Deanne disappears and after Randy Riley’s name was released to the media) RR’s landlord who was in the process of evicting him now claims that she remembers seeing Deanne with RR and another man on Wednesday, November 4th near where he claims that he left her and that Deanne was sitting or lying on the ground again.
Another woman who lived near Inland Empire Way believes that she saw Deanne walking with RR and James on I.E. Way and lying on the ground on that day, as well. That witness claims that she was concerned enough to stop and ask Deanne if she was ok, since she was lying on the ground. Deanne told this witness that she was just upset because she was “going through a divorce” and she seemed in control enough of herself that this neighbor moved on. RR does not deny that he was with Deanne on the last day she was seen nor does he deny that he is the last person willing to admit to having seen her.
2:30-4:00 pm
A few hours after Mike learns Deanne used her card at the grocery store, he finally decides to leave Deanne's car downtown and go to that store with Deanne's missing person flyers in hand. There Mike has his first encounter with the GSE in the parking lot outside of the store. The GSE says Deanne looks familiar, but that it's probably not the same girl. It is possible Deanne did not look exactly like her photos on the night she left home because she was disheveled, but it is also possible that the GSE did not want to immediately admit to a frantic man with a missing person flyer of his fiancée who did not appear missing when he spent the night with her. The GSE may have been wary - for good reason - of becoming involved in what appeared to be a domestic situation.
Mike enters the grocery store and asks another store employee if he would be able to look at store surveillance and according to Mike in his Disappeared interview:
“...she said I had to wait and speak with the manager there, so I called the next day (Thursday) and he said I could come in that Saturday and look through it.”
Mike does not report taking the missing person flyers to the surrounding businesses in the shopping center where the grocery store was located, but maybe he did. It would have made sense for him to do so, since he claims he was papering downtown Spokane with the flyers and the shopping center was now Deanne’s most likely last known location. If Mike had contacted the surrounding businesses to leave flyers, he would have been told about Deanne being at the salon calling people “Mommy” and that police and EMTs had been dispatched for the woman on his flyer. Mike would have been told that Deanne was alone and on foot. He would have immediately searched the surrounding neighborhood for Deanne.
At this point on Wednesday afternoon after 2:30 pm Mike puts himself at the grocery store where Deanne made her last purchases. He is less than two miles from where Randy Riley and James claim to have parted ways with Deanne and approximately 1000ft from his home with Deanne. A Google maps search shows that there are very few streets in that area.
The time period from Wednesday afternoon into Thursday deserves a microscope on it, because this is when Deanne actually goes missing. There is one person who according to his own information was devoting himself to nothing else except tracking down Deanne Hastings during that time period and that person is Mike Tibbetts.
Thursday, November 5, 2015
Mike finally reports Deanne missing to police on Thursday morning. He then calls the manager of the grocery store where Deanne’s debit card was last used. In the ID Disappeared episode Mike calmly tells us that the grocery store manager told him over the phone on Thursday that he could come in two days later to look through the video. Mike presses neither the manager of the store nor police to review the video surveillance immediately that would either confirm Deanne was using her own debit card, or point to a suspect in her disappearance. There is apparently none of the urgency that Mike felt when contacting Deanne’s school the morning before. Although he has allegedly been putting up missing person flyers all over town since the day before, Mike now seems to easily accept that no one will review the surveillance video until Saturday and he returns to work. Mike has still not called the last two people Deanne’s phone sent and received texts from: Deanne’s son and her DIL, nor does he call Deanne’s mother who lives only an hour away with Deanne’s two younger children to ask whether she has heard from Deanne. Instead, Mike goes to the media for help in *promoting* Deanne's disappearance. Deanne’s mother had to learn that her daughter was missing from Deanne’s brother who lived in Texas, who had to learn that his sister was missing when he was called by a friend in Spokane who saw the news report on tv. That makes no sense if Mike was genuinely concerned with locating Deanne on Wednesday and Thursday. Mike tells interviewers that he didn’t wish to alarm Deanne’s family. That makes no sense when he is attempting to locate Deanne by all of these other alarming means. When Deanne was out of touch with all her friends and family including Mike Tibbetts for what turned out to be 6 days in June according to the above-referenced police incident report, Mike Tibbetts never did report Deanne missing (nor did he launch a frantic search and contact the media), her son did and Deanne's teenaged son Hayden had the sense to contact friends and family before he made such a report to police.
Saturday, November 7, 2015
Mike is able to view the surveillance video at the grocery store where Deanne made her purchases. She is alone on video, but clearly disoriented as other witnesses described. Mike does not request police to accompany him to view or take control of a copy of the video.
Sunday, November 8, 2015
6:00 am
Mike gets a call from the GSE who has been following media coverage of Deanne’s disappearance. The GSE now says he thinks Deanne is a girl he spent the night with on Tuesday/Wednesday and he agrees to meet with Mike to answer more questions.
10:30-11:00 am
The GSE meets with Mike and gives him Deanne's keys. Now Mike says he is finally able to retrieve Deanne’s phone and move her vehicle from the parking lot in downtown Spokane. Mike has made no effort in four days’ time to contact AAA or any other method of locksmith/tow service to secure and remove Deanne’s belongings or vehicle from the parking lot where she left it the night she left home. Again, this is telling since Mike originally felt that securing Deanne’s vehicle required him to stay with the vehicle all night in freezing temperatures.
In his ID Disappeared appearance Mike says of his meeting with the Grocery Store Employee:
“He was very not impressive at all.”
It’s hard to imagine in what way the Grocery Store Employee could have been impressive in this case. What sort of a presentation was Mike expecting the GSE to wow him with? Two years after the fact, Mike still shows seething jealousy/disgust on camera that Deanne went home with this... grocery store employee she met on the street outside of a nightclub, when he was prepared to make her his wife. In his ID Disappeared interview Mike says:
“Obviously I asked him if he had gotten together with her or anything like that. He said that he didn’t, that he had a girlfriend and all those things. I just didn’t believe him. He just didn’t, I don’t know. Just something about him.”
Mike seems like his skin is crawling thinking about his fiancée with this man. Who could blame him?
Sometime after 5:00 pm
Mike raises some sort of mini-posse consisting of a couple of friends and they go to the GSE’s house pretending in super-dramatic fashion like he was going to force his way in if he had to, without the police. The GSE cooperates with Mike and no sign of Deanne is found.
December 10, 2015
Randy Riley (RR) is arrested for identity theft. RR admits to using Deanne’s credit/debit cards. RR first states that Deanne gave him the cards to get something to eat. According to RR’s second version of how he obtained Deanne’s credit cards, on November 5, 2015, he was in a truck belonging to a friend who was helping him move belongings from a nearby the apartment from whence RR was being evicted, to his nearby storage unit where he and “James” had hung out with Deanne the day before. RR claims that he came across Deanne’s coat containing her wallet (or at least whatever credit cards and ID she had taken with her when she left her purse and phone in her vehicle) and according to her brother Carson in the Vanished podcast, RR finds Deanne’s coat and shoes and he takes those, as well. RR claims that these items were in the approximate area where he and “James” had last seen Deanne. In an interview with RR in jail with local affiliate KHQ, RR allegedly claims that he disposed of Deanne’s coat and shoes and threw her ID out in downtown Spokane to make it appear that she had been somewhere other than the last place he and his associate James claim they saw Deanne near “the hill”. It should have been easy enough for police to locate the friend with the truck to corroborate the second version of RR coming to have the cards and also whether or not a PIN number was required in order to use the cards.
There is much speculation that because RR is the last reported person to have seen Deanne alive and because he lied at least once about how he obtained her credit cards, that he must be involved in Deanne’s disappearance. A criminal background check shows RR has a history of drug use and theft (but not robbery) in support his drug habit. RR’s only violent offenses are two domestic violence charges which sounds serious, except those appear to be tied to his loved ones’ intervening in his drug use. One of the charges involved a girlfriend and one from 2005 involved Randy’s own Mother, but this coincides with his use of drugs and drug convictions. As of the time Deanne went missing in 2015 when RR was being evicted from his apartment, apparently all was forgiven by Riley’s Mother because she was allowing him to move in with her while he got his feet back under him. That is where police located him living with a girlfriend when they sought him out for an interview regarding the use of Deanne’s credit cards. RR has never been charged with a forcible felony, nor any sex crime. Randy Riley seems to be just your average petty criminal. In his interview with Spokane detectives, RR comes off as not being kind of a dipshit and a weakling who probably sniffs paint, not a sophisticated criminal who anyone else would be willing to assist by loaning him their vehicle, let alone assisting him in disposing of a body. RR got around on a bicycle. If RR lied about how he obtained Deanne’s credit cards, maybe it was just to avoid a robbery charge, which is a forcible felony and a very serious offense compared with anything on his previous record.
Maybe when RR went to go see whether Deanne was planning to come back out of the bushes and continue walking with him and James, he did tussle with her or otherwise removed the cards from Deanne's coat pocket. James maintains that he has no idea how RR came to have Deanne’s credit cards and he was never on video with RR using the cards, so however the theft and use of the cards came to have happened, it does not appear to be any conspiracy between RR and James.
What if Deanne did lose her coat in a struggle with someone else? Maybe someone who was known to be desperately looking for her all over town, who may have felt betrayed by Deanne falling off the wagon and staying out all night?
The Relationship Between Deanne Hastings and Mike Tibbetts
“Within a couple days of meeting her, I knew she was the one.” - Mike Tibbetts, ID Disappeared interview
Within a couple of days of meeting Deanne Hastings, Mike Tibbetts could not possibly have known what being in a committed, longterm relationship with her might entail. Mike Tibbetts was overwhelmed by Deanne’s beauty upon meeting her and he intended to possess her and be her answer to everything.
Mike continues:
“We got along great. I think we had one argument about wheat bread and white bread... which one to buy. I mean other than that we rarely ever fought.”
Mike is being disingenuous and attempting to seriously mislead us for his own purposes. Mike says he thinks (maybe) he and Deanne had “one” argument. So according to Mike’s information, he and Deanne had anywhere from zero to one argument, but if they did have one argument instead of zero, then Mike recalls that the subject matter of that argument was “about wheat bread and white bread… which one to buy.” To be clear, “rarely ever” fighting is not the same thing as maybe zero to one time arguing about purchasing bread. Mike is trying to convince us of a lie that he only needs to convince us of if he has other lies he needs to convince us of.
Amanda Ladd (Deanne’s longtime best friend) shared text messages with police that show Deanne had been telling her best friend for weeks that she wanted to leave Mike. In texts shown on the episode of the ID Disappeared episode, Deanne says she is “done” and that she believed Mike was drugging her. When confronted with this information, Mike then admits that in the weeks before her disappearance, Deanne was hearing voices and thought neighbors and an ex-boyfriend were breaking into their house, drugging the water supply and/or trying to kill her and she even accused Mike of being in on the conspiracy. Deanne does not mention the neighbors or an ex-boyfriend to Amanda Ladd, only Mike. None of what Mike ends up describing is within the realm of everything being “fine” prior to Deanne’s disappearance, anyway. Why didn’t Mike take Deanne to a hospital or at least make an appointment with her doctor if he believed she was hearing voices and accusing half the people in her life of conspiring against her instead of just him?
Deanne’s now daughter-in-law Melanie Green (DIL) states in her ID Disappeared interview that although she never witnessed any fights between Deanne and Mike, Deanne would regularly text message her DIL using a “girl code” they had about doing nails, for when she needed to talk about the relationship troubles with Mike that she was having. What were the nature of Deanne’s issues with Mike that she confided in her DIL about? Melanie Green never mentions wheat bread OR white bread.
Mike wants us to believe that even when Deanne went missing for 6 days in June and had to be reported missing to police by her son because no one including Mike had heard from her for days, that he and Deanne did not exchange any words of argument. Mike wants us to believe that when Deanne accused him of drugging her and even trying to kill her, that his and Deanne's conversation(s) about those issues were less dramatic than a conversation over whether to purchase wheat or white bread. Mike wants us to believe that even when he was able to confirm that Deanne had just spent the night with another man - who Mike says he does not believe was honest when he told Mike that he and Deanne had not "gotten together” - that Mike was going to be ok with that. An honest answer from Mike Tibbetts would have been that he and Deanne had many ups and downs in their short, whirlwind relationship due to Deanne’s ongoing issues with bipolar disorder, that they had been at odds many times before and that this “episode” could have very well ended their relationship had Deanne not gone permanently missing. Instead, Mike chooses to be completely dishonest and that is a huge red flag in a case like this.
Artist Michael Carini of San Diego, CA was a longtime friend of Deanne’s. On the previously linked webpage where he pays tribute to Deanne, he says she had recently contacted him and said that the relationship she was in with Mike was “unhealthy”:
“Shortly before her final disappearance in 2015, she contacted me and told me she had to get out of her current relationship because it was unhealthy. Deanne was known to tell stories and bend the truth, but I felt the sincerity in her voice. She had been clean and sober for a long time and really seemed to be turning her life around.”
January 2016
Randy Riley’s friend James who had walked with RR and Deanne on the day she disappeared and who was not charged with any crime related to her disappearance or the use of her cards, contacted Amanda Ladd via the Missing Deanne Facebook page to say that he wanted to speak with anyone who wanted to speak with him about Deanne and that he would tell them anything they wanted to know. He claims he does not know Randy very well and James stuck to his same story: Deanne went up the hill to relieve herself, Randy went to check on her for several minutes and then returned ALONE and the two men proceeded on their way. According to Deanne’s brother Carson’s account of the phone call, James tells Deanne’s brother words to the effect of “I can’t believe she didn’t make it home, she was so close to home, she was going to walk up the hill. I can’t believe she didn’t make it home.” James seemed genuinely desperate to reassure Deanne’s family that whatever happened to Deanne did in fact happen after he and Randy Riley left her on the hill near the home she shared with Mike Tibbetts.
