Screen Analysis in the case of Missing Trenton Duckett Proves Inconclusive

It was hoped that tests on the screen from the window that was cut of Trenton Duckett’s Trenton Duckettbedroom window would shed some light on his disappearance. Melinda Duckett had told police that Trenton Duckett had been abducted through his bedroom window at her Windemere Villas apartment . However, lab results from the screens analysis have come back inconclusive. They were unable to determine what may have cut the screen or whether it had been cut from the inside or outside of the apartment.

LEESBURG — Authorities this afternoon say they are no closer to finding missing 2-year-old Trenton Duckett after lab results analyzing a cut window screen from his mother’s apartment came back inconclusive.

It is still “undetermined” whether the 10-inch slit made in the screen was cut from the inside or outside of the apartment, Leesburg Police Maj. Steve Rockefeller said today.

Police officers turned over the screen and several knives from Melinda Duckett’s apartment to analysts at the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s Orlando crime lab days after Trenton went missing on Aug. 27. (The Orlando Sentinel)

  1. How very sad this is. I recall that Melinda’s attorney provided a hand drawn map, I haven’t heard anything on this, have I missed something? I can’t help feeling Melinda took it all to the grave with her.

  2. She did.

    Police are dilligent and maybe someone will review a surveillence tape or otherwise to finally determine where else she could have gone.

    Although I doubt the child is alive, whoever is holding him certainly has no intention of coming forward. If he is deceased, he may be found unless dumped in the trash somewhere. He won’t be found if that is the case.

    Anyone who hasn’t listened to the 911 call of the grandfather alerting police to her suicide SHOULD do so. He is so non-emotional…and doesn’t seem in the least upset. He actually goes on to give small-talk to the dispatcher stating “we had brought her back some lunch”. WHAT!? Lunch would be the last thing on my mind!!

    The grandmother in the background sounds distraught. This made me think Melinda was such a problem that the grandfather may have been someone unconcerned. What could he know and not be telling? I’ve heard the father of Trenton state that Melinda’s family was not cooperating one bit!

    Weird idea? Listen to the 911 tape and see!
