First, let me just say, being a mother myself, I cannot imagine the horror of waking up and your baby is GONE. To me, that is a fate worse than death. That child depends on you. He came from your loins. You’ve bonded with him, held him, fed him. Then, POOF! It all ends. Tragic and heartbreaking. I would have lost my mind. I’d want to hunt down the kidnapper and give him or her a fate worse than death. Just sayin’.
I think this is a no-brainer and should have been solved a long time ago. I really do believe Bradshaw kidnapped Christopher on July 15, 1986. The Abeytas reunited on July 14. Hours later Christopher goes missing. Coincidence? I don’t think so.
The fact that he was taken right from his crib suggests to me that this kidnapping was personal, a vendetta if you will. Whoever took this baby did not fear getting caught, almost as if the motive and desire to kidnap him outweighed any reasonable thought.
If Emma did take Christopher, what did she do with him? Sell him? She didn’t take him to raise because he would have been seen. At one time, the Abeytas believed that Christopher may have been taken to Mexico. Does she have family down there? Maybe he was raised by them. So, where is he now?
Or maybe she killed him. The woman wasn’t all there. She could have killed him out of jealousy and rage. After all, she was a jilted lover who thought Gil was going to marry her. Instead, he went back to his wife. How angry did that make her?
Let’s say that was the case. Why take Christopher? Why not kill Bernice or Gil, or both of them? Why did she take the baby? Maybe it was the perfect way to destroy the couple, taking away what they loved the most.
Colorado Springs PD say that Bradshaw has never been a suspect. Say, what?!? Do you find that odd? I do! She had an affair with Gil and he left her in the dust. HOURS after he moved back home, Christopher disappears. And she was never a suspect? Did Emma have friendships in the CSPD? I’m thinking that’s a good possibility. I suppose they will say there is no evidence linking her to the crime. Well, there wouldn’t be. She just walked right into the house, grabbed Christopher, and left. From what I read, police never dusted the house for fingerprints. Nice work there, PD.
I’d like to think Christopher is out there living his life, with no knowledge of his former life. In fact, I believe he is. I also believe Bradshaw knows exactly where he is, even to this day.
