Trenton Duckett’s Toys & Picture Found in Trash During Initial Search of Duckett Home

It is no surprise that law enforcement probably considered Melinda Duckett a suspect fromTrentonduckett cfn the out set of the disappearance of Trenton Duckett. Melinda would have been the last one to have put Trenton to bed and the first one to have noticed he was missing. The disappearance also took place under Melinda’s roof. However, now we are learning some more details to the original searches performed by the police upon gaining the initial search warrants.

Police asked to search her apartment on Aug. 27 — the night she reported Trenton missing. Investigators went to court to get a search warrant, and they searched her home early Monday morning.

“There were two search warrants served. One on the original night of the disappearance, or I guess that would actually be the following morning, early in the morning hours, and that was as the case wore on and it became apparent after interviewing the parents that the child had indeed disappeared,” said Capt. Steve Rockefeller of the Leesburg Police Department.

Upon searching the home the police found some interesting items:

Law enforcement officials told the WESH 2 I-Team that police found freshly painted walls in some places, and in the back, trash that was allegedly thrown out by Duckett was filled with Trenton’s toys.

But what grabbed investigators’ attention were the pictures, officials said. They said a lot of pictures of Trenton, including the sonogram printout from when Duckett was pregnant, were all thrown away in the trash.

Learning such details it becomes all that much more tragic that Melinda Duckett committed suicide. Authorities being able to question her in whatever manner might have shed some light on all of this as to “Where is Trenton Duckett”?  Authorities have been searching at Ocalla National Forest and have turned up the following so far.

1. This past Sunday, divers in Farles Lake in the Ocala National Forest found a white garbage bag.

On the bag, investigators discovered a substance that some believed was blood and holes that appeared to be from alligator bites. The bag was sent to a Florida Department of Law Enforcement lab in Jacksonville for analysis, and forensic tests showed that the substance on that bag is not blood.

2. Law enforcement officials also said divers found a large piece of asphalt about 10 feet away from the bag. The lake is in a remote woodland where there are no paved roads.

3. The search in the Ocala National Forest has also turned up what could be a child’s shoe. Forensics experts are examining the shoe. (WESH)

The family is trying to work out the details to offer a $5000.00 reward.

The Eubanks’ church fund is in addition to the reward offered by Crimeline. In order to get that reward, tipsters need to call 800-423-TIPS. Police are also urging anyone with information to call the main investigative number at 800-CALL-FBI.

  1. I hold onto every hope that Trenton will still be found alive. I know the authorities are searching every possible lead and tip they have. I just want to ask everyone in the surrounding area to be walking their property and maybe when you are out jogging or out on boats to just be aware and alert. This child needs to be found alive but in the event he is deceased he deserves the honor and respect of a proper burial. Our Familys deepest thoughts and Prayers are with All involved.
