Maybe you really want her to be to make the story more exciting. There’s a reason she knew what would happen to Eli, and I for one find getting randomly brutally attacked by a stranger very suspicious. We need more facts out.
Yeah... not feeling the whole clairvoyance! I think it's quite obvious Kristal had a double life. One her family believed she lived and one she actually lived. It really struck me on episode 1 when her dad thought all of her parties and drug use were just being made up. Seems like she wasn't quite the good little girl everyone thought she was. I think her death is quite obvious, it's the product of bad people and drugs.
People are complex. She likely was having a difficult time and was what her loved ones say, simultaneously.
It doesn't even take intent. Different people draw out different aspects of ourselves. We can be one self to our families and another with each group of friends. These conflicting stories likely tell us more about Kristal's relationships with the people interviewed than Kristal herself.
Some shady hippie or random drifter probably killed her.
Except people with known addictions, most of us don't really share our drug benders/rec drug use with our parents or "hey dad, I've been doing a lot of meth lately, what have you been up to?!". And I think a lot of people can say they don't share all their hardships with family as to not make them worry, etc. So it shouldn't be a huge surprise that Kristal's father has a different idea of who she was before she disappeared. And I'm sure there's more details that are yet to be released that could make sense of all this. Prune said she moved to Crestone with a boyfriend, the landlord said she moved there to escape the drug scene and STAY clean. But so far the story is that she was searching for spiritual enlightenment. I think an even bigger issue is not wanting her to look like just another druggie that is missing because it's her fault she was doing drugs and hanging out with bad people. Had she been a beauty queen maybe this not be happening. But even Tara had a little bit of the "maybe she sleeps around" factor.
Just wondering, is “Prune” from Crestone or know anyone in this story?
@miztahitlover I think @prune said s/he is from Crestone and knew one of Nathan’s friends. If I recall correctly prune said Kristal was staying with a drug maker named catfish for a while and that’s when everyone thought she was missing (around the 13th I assume) but then she called prune and Nathan’s mutual friend (no name given) and said she was scared of catfish and this mutual friend went and picked her up. (I assume this is when prune is saying she was seen by others like at the drum circle) but then she disappeared for good and it was because she went back to catfish and ended up overdosing and catfish decided to bury her body. I could be getting some of he details wrong, but this is what I recal @prune posting after the first episode.
Ok, so Nathan was her boyfriend in Crestone but then she got involved with Catfish? Where abouts did Catfish live?
Prune said catfish is one of the rich families in the area with a lot of control. I’m assuming one of the “trust fund kids” Payne talked about in ep 2
@Mizra Catfish lives in the Baca. Also, @prune mentioned that Kristal and Nathan had broken up about a month prior to her disappearance.
Any idea how long Kristal was in Crestone? Im assuming she moved into that apartment after the breakup with Nathan. How long was she doing vocals with the Crestone band, how long working at the bar? Nathan was a musician, did he have ties with that band? I hope Payne was able to get perspective from people more involved in her life there.
I don't think it was very long that she had been there. Weirdly enough I found a FB page of a local photographer that had photos of the Grand Opening Party for Crestone Brewing (I think this is the bar she worked at) and the opening was in early July 2016, meaning she only worked there for a week or two?
I think I remember hearing or reading that she worked there for about a month but proved to be unreliable and was fired. Maybe it was the episode?
Thanks, Odessa. Gonna wait anxiously for Payne to roll out the facts so he gets to this Catfish character and any other people she got to know there, whether through the brewery, this band she sang in, the drum circle or however. When and where she would have met up with Catfish or any others, whether she went to the baca and how she got around given it’s obvious you would need a car.
And I’m also wondering how long she had lived in Crestone before she went missing, tendrils. Could be two months, could be a year for all we know. Seems like an important fact to mention but oddly you don’t find it anywhere. Don’t they also typically write what the person was last seen wearing on missing posts too?
Oh yeah, and why she listed Crestone as past town and a different town in Colorado as where she currently lives
Gunnison is where she went to College, I was assuming that she didn't update her location? Not sure...
Her Facebook when I looked at it yesterday listed that she currently lives in gunnison and used to live in Crestone, interestingly. Would be curious to know from her Facebook friends when she made this change because she clearly lived in Crestone when she disappeared.
