    hey,I have a theory, what if she was murdered,and THEN the suspect threw her into the sea(ocean),then she floated up just there by the water,then she got found by teh LIFEGUARD,and the sand must be the one from the crimina dragging her,or picking her up (either way)well,it dosen't make sense tho. but its in my opinion!

    I think she was definitely murdered, the killer kept or got rid of her clothes, and cut her leg off before dumping her in the ocean, were the sharks feasted on the dead body.

    Sharks aren't the only predator in the ocean, however I suspect Decker had something to do with it if he was the last person to see her alive. Did they ever call the cab company to verify dropping her off? I'm thinking he probably raped and drowned her and told people she liked surfing naked as a cover up.

    What if she died from a boat crash?
    someone didn't want to go to jail so they made it look like a shark attack or accident small speedboat that hit her banging her body against the bottom of the water and she inhaled sand from shock last inhale maybe? If the blue sharks couldn't have taken the leg then the person who hit her took it to make it look like a shark attack then dumped the body where the blue sharks fed opon it

    I think he pushed her off the cliff to kill her but soon he realized she was still alive then he undressed her raped her and drowned her in the shallow water but that's just my thoughts...

    I think that the murderer (unknown), wanted to get frisky with michelle, but after her decline he probably raped her, and/or shoved her down the cliff. After peering down he saw her still alive and dragged her to the beaches waters. He strangled or drowned her there, hence the broken neck and/or neck injuries OR/AND sand in her lungs and stomach. He then planted the purse and maybe convinced some people it was a shark attack... Just a thoery.

    Maybe she was pushed off a cliff, the stalker guy or the bartender were psycho and took off her clothes, cut off her legs or whatever, then dragged into the water?

    What happened
    My theory

    Michelle jumped from the cliffs like skinny dipping {naked} she took of her jacket and bag and sat them down as she jumped she knocked her bag off the edge and it flung over very far (I know unlikely but I mean it's more normal than some of the other theory's) hitting her head and breaking her neck and etc on the way down.
    And her leg got ripped off on the way down and a shark ate it.
    When she got too the bottom she swallowed the sand while in the water.

    Anyone else think of this?

  • Liam Mitchell
    Liam Mitchell 3 days ago

    I have a theory if she did go for a night swim orcas (killer whales can feed at that time) as nice as orcas are in the dark maybe the mistakes her for something they would eat because it's dark there reason this makes sense is orcas have the bite force to take of the leg they also use a drowning tactic on seals and other animals the hold them down and drown them that's where she could have gotten the sand

  • Olivia Moran
    Olivia Moran 3 days ago

    Thiiiis is a stretch, but I doubt she would have gone into the ocean, naked no less, at such a cold temperature. I'm wondering if there was ever any evidence of sexual misconduct? Or if that was ever checked? What if she was taken advantage of on the cliff, resulting in the removal of her clothing, then, maybe due to the confrontation between Michelle and the perpetrator, Michelle broke her leg, which would explain the angle of the broken bone, even if a shark later bit if off. He throws her into the ocean where she breaks her neck BUT doesn't die right away and inhales/ingests sand. Eventually she drowns and is carried out to sea, where she is fed upon by sharks.

    My mom and her friends were with her the night she died. They had all gone to a reggae concert. Michelle had taken acid and was convinced aliens were coming to pick her up from her house and she needed to go home. They tried to convince her she was being ridiculous and she needed to stay but she unfortunately left. They all found out what happened the next day.

    Well at night the ocean does rise up a little bit maybe she jumped to swim and the water brought her to the ocean where she could've drowned and broke he neck and someone found her and put things where they were and then broke her beck by hitting the rocks breaking her neck and ribs and the shark might've chewed off her whole leg??????

    If she did jump from the cliff it wouldn't make sense that her purse was miles away and that if she did jump and broke her neck how in the hell would she end up naked in the ocean considering how far off the ocean was....and about the missing I don't think that theory makes any sense at all

  • Anna Belle
    Anna Belle 4 days ago

    I think it's because of the stalker, MAYBE he killed her because she was spending time with that guy, and why else would he ask for autopsy copies and coincidently ride a motor cycle , which then leads to the conclusion that he drowned and left her purse, to be honest I'd go with that to solve the case

    My hypothesis for what happened: Someone shoved her off the cliffs, which could explain the broken neck, ribs, and the other injuries that are commonly seen in fall victims. The same someone went down to check to see if she was dead, which she wasn't, and so they drowned her in the shallows, explaining the sand in her lungs, throat and stomach. They then stripped her and dumped her body in the ocean. Sharks fed on her, causing most of her flesh wounds (Aside from taking her leg off. I don't really have an explanation for that.). Later she washed up on shore and was found. Thoughts?

    I think she probably fell from the cliff and someone, either the stalker or a person unknown, tried to help her. She probably didn't break her neck but severely injured her leg to the point where it needed amputation. When the amputation didn't go right and death looked certain the person held her neck underwater and snapping it. Also she might have been naked under that trench coat and that's why no clothes were found. The person felt guilty took the trench coat and left the body to be found.
