Today, Susan Murphy Milano, of HWT Radio fame, wrote about Lindsey in her blog. Seeing just the title, and not knowing who Susan Murphy Milano from Eve, I was prepared to be incensed: "The Connection Between Michael Jackson and Lindsey Baum."
I've become used to finding psychics and other less-than-what-I-consider-reliable-sorts on the other end of searches for updates on missing children. Lindsey Baum, unfortunately, has attracted quite a nutty following. So I was feeling combattive when I finally landed on this ersatz linking of Baum and The King of Pop.
It was nice to be disappointed for a change. She has grabbed the attention that Michael Jackson never fails to attract and has connected it with Lindsey's disappearance, the news of which was eclipsed, at the time, by Jackson's death.
I managed to miss some of the details that Ms. Murphy Milano was able to share. She based them on the profile at the CUE Center for Missing Persons, I believe, and while don't know their sourcing, either, they have my confidence.
Erring on the side of better-late-than-never, these details seem worth airing here:
Lindsey has the following distinguishing physical characteristics:
Scar above her left eye;At the time of her disappearance, June 26, 2009, Lindsey Baum was wearing:
Birth mark dark brown on right wrist;
Colored fillings in her teeth.
A long sleeve hooded shirt (not sweatshirt) light bluish/gray;
Jeans with knees cut out;
Black slip on American Eagle shoes with white rubber soles (no socks);
Bathing suit under clothes (a red/white/blue striped/polkadotted top with mismatched floral print bottoms).
