    “Messages left for Nowak and Porter on their Facebook pages by the Bangor Daily News have not been returned.”
    Really? Anything to get an interview it seems, that type of contact is very easy to ignore and decline reporting in situations like this. Sounds desperate

    • Vannessa

       That is also false- I saw Cheyanne’s facebook messages and there was none, also she has deleted her facebook. I wouldn’t blame her, the ignorant and threatening messages she was recieving were totally unnecessary.

        Why would you be able to see her private messages?

        • Anonymous

          The story didn’t say private messages were sent to the two people; it said messages were left on their Facebook pages. There is a difference.

          • Anonymous

             Yes, there is a difference, but unless you are a friend of someone, you can’t just write on their wall. The only way to reach them, is via private messaging.

            DING!!!

          • Anonymous

            Why the DING? It still brings us back to the question of how were you able to see her private messages, if she was on the run in CT? Or, are you not as close to her as you want us to believe?

          • Vannessa

            And Ding, because you were right. There was nothing though, wall or in private. As for Dan’s facebook, we don’t know.

          • Anonymous

            You think BDN would leave messages in regards to this issue on her wall? 

          • Anonymous

            Of course not, because that would require those guys to be Facebook friends with the reporter. But as another poster said, the reporter claims to have left messages on their Facebook pages. It’s the reporter who doesn’t seem to know the difference between leaving a message on a page and sending a private message.

        • Vannessa

          Because she is my best friend and i spent the whole weekend with her. Not like there was anything to hide in her “private messages”. Friends knowing another friends facebook happenings really isn’t a big deal.

          • Anonymous

            Still sounds like you aren’t as close to her as you’d like us to believe. BDN said they sent her a message on an article 5 days ago, when she was still on the run. She has since deactivated her account, so I’m not sure how you saw any messages this weekend, with her account deactivated… Also, everyone knows where the delete button is, so just because you didn’t SEE any messages (on a deactivated account), doesn’t mean they weren’t there.

          • Vannessa

            Is this really rocket science? I was with her from 4pm fri (when she got back from CT) until 5pm yesterday. Minus a few hours saturday. We were on facebook and reading all the ignorant comments on here Friday night BEFORE she deactivated her account. How hard is this to comprehend?

          • Anonymous

            So did she tell you what happend?

          • Vannessa

            I’m sure i’ll get attacked for this but oh well. She has been my best friend since the DAY she moved up here from CT over 7 years ago, we tell each other everything. There are no secrets. She told me everything she knew, which is everything she told the police. She has nothing to hide, and no one thinks she does. I know this girl and I know when she isn’t giving me everything, just as she does with me. I feel sorry for the hell she has endured and still has to endure through all of this. She is torn apart. She can’t even take her own son (her entire world) home with her right now because of this. She would never do anything to jeopardize her son or ability to see him. She was in the wrong place at the wrong time, under the wrong pretenses.  I couldn’t imagine going through this right now, having my face plastered all over the country and being called all the horrible things she has been called. It’s ignorant and unnecessary. The case is OPEN and when it is closed, people can say all they want to. There is nothing for people to go on except the minimal, inaccurate infomation in the news. The detectives haven’t released a lot of info for this reason.

    I think this entire article needs to be rewritten. They add new stuff, that contradicts stuff that is further down, which may confuse people. I think a complete rewrite would make it easier for some people to follow things.

    • PaulNotBunyan

      It got several updates right after it appeared and maybe it will get several more. I don’t complain because it’s almost like looking over their shoulder while they type.

      • Anonymous

         I agree with what you are saying, BUT there are some people who may get confused with them just piling updates on, rather than rewriting. I think it’s great that they are giving us the info as quickly as they can. This is one of the hazards of internet news though- fragmented, and sometimes contradictory/unclear updates, rather than a polished article, like you would read in the printed version.

        I do enjoy being able to get my news online though. Thank you BDN for that!

           Sometime between 11 PM and midnight seems to be the final update time for a lot of stories I read here. It probably has something to do with deadlines for the print edition.

            It’s not a newspaper. It’s a website run by a newspaper. Follow some of the other ones across the USA and see if BDN in unique in this regard. Anyway, I think all of them should use some type of a “final version” stamp on their sites – in red.

       who is the person named Williams referred to? I went back twice & re- read the article but couldn’t find it.

         That random reference to a person named Williams is precisely why I think this article needs to be rewritten. I’m sure that it was identified in a different update who this person is, but that info has been removed, leaving people to wonder.

          It has been edited since the posts asking who Williams was were written. All it said before was “Williams said Saturday that he had not heard Perdomo mention a woman named Lisa.” It didn’t clarify who Williams was, until after the public asked for the clarification.

    • Vannessa

      It’s SO inaccurate!! If they can’t even get AGES right in an article, how do you expect them to get anything else right??

      • Have you had any contact with you friend and do you know who this Lisa person is?

        • Vannessa

          Yes I have. I was with her from 4 friday to 5 last night minus a few hours saturday. She is ok. Physically at least. 

  • PaulNotBunyan

    I guess the third car was probably the one they drove to Connecticut. Probably got impounded there.

    • Anonymous

       Yes, I read another article (don’t remember where) that said his rental, and the two cars connected to the couple were the 3 impounded.

    • Vannessa

      Ummm no. Don’t guess things, because you are wrong.

      • Anonymous

        Here is a quote from the most current article:

        “Investigators also have moved three vehicles involved in the case to the
        crime lab. They include a rental car Perdomo had been operating, which
        was found in the parking lot of the Bangor Walmart; a car that had been
        owned by Porter and was left behind at an Oakland dealership; and a new
        car bought by Porter and Nowak.”

        Note the last 9 words. Just how is PaulNotBunyan wrong about his guess, when the police have confirmed it????

        I know, I know… It’s not rocket science, but I still think you aren’t as close to this as you want us to believe. Otherwise, you would be spending your time comforting your friend, rather than refuting everything the police are releasing to the public.

       I had the very same question. Another reason the article should be rewritten, to make things clearer. I read the article twice, and couldn’t find reference to who Williams is.

    • PaulNotBunyan

       We’re reading this story as they put it together. They pasted that line in from a previous story but they still need to paste in the part that says who Williams is. He’s one of the two Florida firefighters who came here to look for Perdomo.

    Oh gees, guilty or not guilty?  Paying cash for a $5,000.00 car, ditching the old car and running to Connecticut…..anyone smell a rat?  Where did the cash come from and who would carry that much cash?  Drugs and death are becoming a routine scenario around here.

    • Anonymous

      I’m not defending anybody with this statement but it is tax season. It is possible that she used tax money. But the whole story is fishy…

      • PaulNotBunyan

        The story said they bought the car sight unseen but did not say they paid in full. It’s one of those “you get credit” dealers. If it’s a $5000 car at other dealers it’s probably $3000 down and $5000 still owed at this dealer. It could be less down but that depends on how they rate your credit.

        • Anonymous

          Car dealer said they paid in cash.   Any car I have ever bought was through transactions other than cash.  Although back in the days, we paid cash when it was a few hundred bucks.

          • PaulNotBunyan

            It doesn’t say that in this story. Do you have another one where he says that?

            http://www.pressherald.com/news/Couple-questioned-in-missing-firefighter-case-switched-cars.html

          • Anonymous

            Right after they found Nowak and Porter, BDN quoted car salesman who noted the cash and Porter being disheveled and out of sorts….said he looked like bed head.  Also, in Florida news they are saying Nowak and Porter were in Connecticut at Porter’s mother’s house.

          • PaulNotBunyan

            The link I posted is for the local story which is also on the Morning Sentinel site. I don’t doubt that they paid in cash but that could just be the large down payment on a “you get credit” deal. These type of car dealers often deal with people who don’t have checking accounts. A lot of them will run to a bank and get cash so they can drive the car off before the dealer changes his mind about giving them credit. Anyway, most used car dealers see a large cash transaction every now and then. If it’s big enough they have to do some special paperwork for the feds.

            I think the police have confirmed that they found them in Connecticut. Maybe the third car impounded was the one they bought. The stories only say that it was a car belonging to Porter.

    Seriously? First baby Ayla and now these people?  I’m starting to have a HUGE disinterest in the professionalism of law enforcement with the lack of arrests in these “pending” cases. Even with cell phone records and everything else, people are somehow able to get away with this crap.  Unreal.  I understand they can’t hold anyone without evidence, but man, it’s getting tiresome to see innocent people die at the hands of sociopaths.

    OK – let’s hear some more detail that will help us understand the motive?  How are these two related to the the mysterious “Lisa”?  

    • PaulNotBunyan

      In the interview it doesn’t look like there is a direct connection between Lisa and the couple.

      “He said he was meeting a friend and I wish I could remember that friend’s name,” said Lisa.

      Lisa said Daniel Porter and Cheyanne Nowak, a couple that police were
      looking for and have questioned were friends of Perdomo’s and that
      Perdomo occasionally met up with them.

      • I bet the woman knows the two that are being looked at.  She said some odd stuff that leads me to believe she is extremely dumb and thought her story was going to send cops in another direction.  In the end we’ll see that Lisa knows Cheyanne and Porter.

        • PaulNotBunyan

          If she’s involved that way I don’t think she would be talking to that reporter. She probably talked to the cops before that. Somebody that is afraid of detectives coming to their door would not talk to a reporter like that.

          • I’m not convinced she is afraid of detectives.  As I said, I don’t think she is sleeping with the missing guy and I think she is dumb enough to think she was going to send cops on a wild goose chase with her story.  I don’t buy her story at all but that is just my hunch.

    Florida wife contacts Bangor Police about missing husband who is visiting Lisa each month for last 10 months. Hmmm..she knew he came to Maine. What did she think he was doing here while staying with Lisa? Smells of an insurance payout to her, or a “drug mule.”  Have no doubt Florida wife knows the answers.

    I wonder who’s talking now. When the cops tell you your car that you left in Maine has been impounded and then they impound the car you came to Connecticut in, you might decide it’s time to break loose from the person who is going down. Plus she has a young child to think of. Anyway, I hope she is telling them anything she knows that might lead them in the right direction.

  • PaulNotBunyan

    I’m not going to make assumptions that the victim was a criminal. I’ll wait for the details to come out. Maybe the perpetrator(s) do drugs but don’t assume that drug users only rob dealers and other drug users.

       Drug Mule. That’s what this was all about. Avoiding flying, frequent trips. Either the guy in so the run because he can’t pay his “boss” in Florida or he’s no longer among the living due to nefarious acts by his co-conspirators here in Maine.

      • PaulNotBunyan

        Or maybe he was a narc. Or maybe he was under investigation. The cops think this couple were the last people to see him and it was at this house they are searching. Maybe that’s because somebody was trying to keep track of him.

      • Anonymous

        Sure looks that way. A news story in FL. says he was using prescription pain killers. Florida is notorious for its pain clinics where you can easily get pain meds with few questions asked. Most are cash only clinics. Shop around, load up and head to Maine where everyone knows you can get top dollar for the stuff. This Nowak woman has prior drug convictions, so its not a stretch to draw that conclusion.

    Yes, drug transporters use rental cars for several reasons:  It gives them deniability if police find drugs in the trunk (“No kidding, drugs in the trunk, wow didn’t know that, not my car”); and the rental car can’t be forfeited.

    • Interesting.  Never had heard that before.  But it makes sense.  A good lawyer would be able to go to town on that.  Obviously a jury after hearing from a good lawyer would be able to find some “reasonable doubt” as to whether the drugs were his or just happened to be left by some other sap.

        Years ago, when I practiced law, I represented a guy caught in a rental truck on I95 in NH with a ton of marijuana.  As you can imagine, that case was indefensible.  Where very large amounts of drugs are involved, deniability isn’t an issue.   Just about every drug transporter case I had involved rented vehicles and sometimes the vehicle was rented by someone other than the driver, I suppose to create another layer of denial if necessary.

            I meant indefensible on the merits, if the case ever got that far.  The stop and the search were good, so there was no reasonable basis for a motion to suppress.  There were 3 or 4 codefendants, all represented by their own counsel, and all ended up pleading.  My guy was from the West Coast.  Because there was so much marijuana (a ton by weight) in the truck and my guy was the driver, it was pretty evident that he was in deep trouble.  The prosecutor opposed our efforts to admit the guy to bail, because he was from the West Coast, had no local ties, and was exposed to a long sentence, so that he was a flight risk.  But we prevailed and the court set a high bail, and the client was able to meet it because his father secured the bail bond with a mortgage on his property, and the court set some stiff reporting requirements.  It turned out that the prosecutor was right.  The client jumped bail and I never heard from him again.  I guess that was his “defense” – not mine, but his.

      The video shows a diver getting ready and they’re cutting the ice. Not good.

        they aren’t ice fishing?

      • That is an eery video.  Wish there was a little reporting to go along with it.

        • PaulNotBunyan

          I thought it was a bit strange how they put it online but the story text makes no comment on what they are observing. I noticed near the beginning how the reporter says something to the diver and gets no response. Maybe they decided to just post the video and let the viewer figure out what the questions would have been.

          • Yeah, no mention of any underwater searching anywhere I can find in print.  The only thing odder than this story is the reporting of said story.

        • PaulNotBunyan

          “Next-door neighbor Don Leino said that police had been busy at the small wooden house for days”

          Well, the latest update sheds some more light on what’s happening there. They’ve been working there for days and today they make a statement that foul play is suspected. Makes me think they are finding things. If that body of water is close to the house I guess some diver has to get under the ice and look around just to be sure.

          • I would think there must be some clues to lead them there, not just because it is close by.  They are looking in Jackson and the guys car was left in Bangor.  There must be many bodies of water between the 2 places.  They are now saying the guy was believed to have been in Jackson last.  That would mean they know he got there from Bangor, somehow.  If they think he never left, then that would lead to a comprehensive search in the area.  This story might lead to a movie someday. At this point it would make a darn good one.

            BTW, where did you see the comment from the neighbor?

          • PaulNotBunyan

             The comment from the neighbor is in the story with other updates.

            Maybe somebody else was there who said “I think your friend is a narc” and it went downhill from there. Maybe the reason they switched cars and booked on out of here is they were scared to death.  We just have to wait for the real story to come out.

      Looks to me like the police know exactly where to go and what they are looking for. Dollars to doughnuts the girlfriend (Nowak) talked rather than spend time in jail.

  • In other news:  The State police believe Augusta is the capital of Maine, the state has 16 counties and the sun rises in Lubec before it does Kittery.  

    • Harry H Snyder III

      The sun hasn’t risen in Lubec in my lifetime.

  • Got no idea where this guy is but as far as the people go, I think Lisa is just covering, trying to divert the police into thinking he left to go “start a new life”.  She knows where he is and what happened but she isn’t responsible.  She is trying to cover for her friend or friends who she knows messed up.  Probably no Mensa meetings here.  So I don’t think Lisa has actually been having sex with the missing guy.  I think the wife from Florida knows why he was here as it was helping provide for her kids.  After that I’m not sure what is going on.  Clearly some drugs are probably involved and maybe the money the two jackals had is from the missing guy or maybe not.  Guess we’ll see.

        Only a liberal tool would make this political.

    • The other thing is that Lisa also suggested the guy was dead by saying he WAS a good guy and her story of hoping he had gone to start a new life somewhere just smells of a diversion tactic.  I think she believed that the police would buy that after hearing he was cheating on his wife and just stop sniffing around locally.  Obviously that is not the case.  The other thing she said was that he had gone to meet someone and she wishes she could remember their name.  The only people she knows he didn’t go meet was Nowak and Porter.  Uh huh.  Lastly, Lisa from reports APPROACHED a Florida TV station who was in the area covering the story.  That makes it seem like she walked up to them in a parking lot.  Would Pedormo’s lover really do that?  Maybe I am reading too much into it but it would seem to be if she contacted them by phone to set up the interview the reports would have said that instead of saying she approached these folks.  

      • PaulNotBunyan

        It was in the walmart parking lot but about a week after the rental car was found there. It’s hard to say if she went out looking for reporters or she just happened to be there shopping.

        • Either way, how does it make sense that a Maine woman decided to go to a Florida station to get her story our and why would she do it at Wal Mart and why would she be at Wal Mart shopping if someone that she is sleeping with is missing and likely dead? Its almost as if Lisa was staking out the Wal Mart for some reason. I just don’t see how she chose to meet the station there. Shopping and then just out of the blue deciding now was the time to talk, to a Florida station, just makes no sense to me.

          • PaulNotBunyan

             I can’t remember if it was another TV station or a newspaper that repeated the story but they said she approached the reporters asking if they had any new information. There have been a few times I asked TV reporters a question and suddenly a camera and microphone were in my face.

    I drive wherever I go because I hate to fly since 9/11. There is no evidence to support this claim. Out of respect to his family, we should refrain from making up stories to make an innocent (until proven guilty) victim who is missing.

    • Anonymous

       You do realize it is safer to fly now than it ever was before 9/11 and you are kinda limited to this side of the pond. With the limited info we are receiving from these high profile cases by the News as of late. All we have is  to speculate and create scenarios. The BDN certainly doesn’t have the ability to cover these type of cases. It shows, by them being scooped by a Florida TV crew. Journalism is dead at the BDN and it has turned into a social media gossip
      warehouse. Copy and paste should me their new mantra.

    “One appeared to carry rolled-up carpeting out to the Maine State Police evidence truck parked in the dirt driveway”

    I can just imagine people trying to stonewall the cops reading stuff like that. But maybe they didn’t have to read it. Sometimes the cops are kind enough to inform them in person of the progress they are making.

    If you have ever had the misfortune of going to jackson maine, you would know there is no law in Jackson Maine ! I have driven truck all over the united states and into the middle of some of the roughest cities including NY and cincinati and i felt safer in both of those cities compared to when i had to drop an excuvator off in Jackson Maine ! BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD PLACE !

      WIMP! I’ve lived in Jackson my whole life and I wouldn’t live anywhere else. You are soooo wrong. Where did you drop that excavator off? Bet I know exactly where… There is nothing wrong with jackson, its just a small rural town with a small population. What is so scary about that? No law? Ive had the “law” at my house MANY times to deal with my ex husband. They do well out here. You are just a tard at it’s finest.

      • Anonymous

        my point exactly , you have had law at your house many times for your ex-husband. When i said there was no -law , i meant there were no law-abiding citizens which is an overstated fact but you just proved my point ! Im sure there are some fine upstanding citizens in Jackson just like most towns , however i know a few there that i wouldnt take a walk through a country road with and definitely wouldnt turn my back on them. Just like the BDN i spruce my stories up to get attention. Its a sign of a good writer , otherwise most of the stories here wouldnt be worth the 5 minutes of reading !

        • Vannessa

          Except that my ex isn’t from Jackson… If that is the only “proof” you have, I feel sorry for you. You don’t know anything about Jackson or it’s residents. You speculate.

            You dont have to be from Jackson , you just have to have lived there to have the cops show up and yes i do know people in Jackson and i dont think i should name them i value my life too much !

            Way to be over dramatic…safer in NYC than in Jackson? Give me a break. Stop with the idiotic statements. Just stop. Stop trying to paint it out like Jackson is some scary place.

            When the results and info , if we are entitled to get all the info from this story then you can say im over dramatic if the facts prove that !

            Actually I read your idiotic post and that is why I commented. I have no issues with reading….I called you over dramatic for saying that you felt safer in NYC or Cinn. than in Jackson…which is what you said. Regardless of what comes out of this case, this was and is an isolated incident in an other wise quiet town.  If you are scared to go to Jackson because of an isolated incident…then you better be scared to go to many other small towns in Maine. Just because a single event happens in a town, doesn’t mean that the town isn’t safe. Better stay away from Bangor, there was stabbing there…better stay away from Waterville, there was a kidnapping there. Don’t go near Downeast…there was a drug ring there. They arrested some people for growing pot in Monroe a couple months back, better stay away from there. So again, yes I will say you’re being over dramatic.

            This guy served over seas and never got killed in Iraq , he comes to Maine and disappears and im being over dramatic ! I dont think so , when all the facts come out and we do find out he was murdered tell me im over dramatic . If you had read my post i stated that i felt safer in NYC , i did not say Jackson was not as safe as NYC . Learn to read  ! Not asking you to feel the same way i do just stating how i feel based on my experiences. But i can tell you the dead end road i was on , is no place to be during the day or night , especially in hunting season ! HE HE HE ! Thats all im going to say !

        I think I know where he dropped that excavator off too—rt 7 opposite the town office and up the road a bit  ;-)    they’re not originally from Jackson anyway…closer to my neck of the woods…

        • Vannessa

          Opposite? The 2 places i think of, both are originally from Jackson. But depends on how far from the TO you mean I suppose.

    Lisa, Stand up and tell us what you know.  Talk to your community rather than the Florida news.

    • PaulNotBunyan

      Orlando Sentinel reports: “When asked about Lisa, the Maine authorities refused to name her.”

      I think she probably was in contact with police before she talked to a reporter. She said she was trying to call both of Perdomo’s phone the night he disappeared. If she didn’t contact the police they probably contacted her. They would have gotten the records for at least one of the phones and that is going to show them all calls, including unanswered ones.

    The longer this goes on the worse it looks. How could an ordinary guy come to the state on a visit and then disappear? There is something very wrong with this picture. Hope he is found soon.

  • Anonymous

    How exactly do we know who was “the last person” to see a visitor from out of town who came here for reasons unknown and has since disappeared into thin air?

  • Hope this ends well. Something inside tells me that it probably wont. Guess thats the obvious though.

  • Anonymous

    If the victim had been coming to Maine from Florida
    for the past 10 months  and was staying with this Lisa,
    I wonder what reasons he gave to his wife and co-workers
    for his visits to Jacksom Maine? Or what reasons to
    spend money to visit Maine monthly? I may have missed
    where his wife may have said something about their looking
    to relocate to Maine as a reason for his trips.

    Questions: How much time does he get off, to come to Maine once a month for the past 10 months ? Plus he rents car car to drive, normally 3 days up and 3 days back and he is having an affair. Why wouldn’t he had flow ? cheaper and lots quicker unless…….. Who trades their car over the phone, the dealer can not see what the trade in is like so he gives nothing for it. None of this makes sense, at this point.

    How much money will this investigation cost Maine taxpayers?  If the guy is found to be a run-a-way can we get it back?

    Maybe they should offer a $30,000 reward for information, seeing we know how that works. I have very little faith in our police department when it comes to solving mysteries. I suspected foul play the day they said he went missing. So these two have had 11 days to get rid of any evidence and their parents to help them.

    • Anonymous

      Just because the Police didn’t call you at home and let you know the were considering this a homicide, dosen’t mean they didn’t suspect that from day one.  I really don’t think “these two” have had 11 days to get rid of any evidence.  And the $30,000 was a reward offered by the generous business community of Waterville, that had nothing to do with law enforcement.  What have you done to help with this case.  To be so critical, I am sure you must be doing something more productive than the police.  I am sure you are closer to the answer than they are, right?  After all, YOU suspected foul play the day they said he went missing.

    How sad, no matter what the reason is for his being in Maine, to be killed here (?) or harmed in any way is awful.  With all the break-ins, robberies of banks and the number of killings, word will soon get out that Maine is not really Vacation Land.

    I don’t think this was a drug deal gone bad.  Cheyanne recently found out he was married. This trill seeker, party girl, angry that he never told her the truth proubably..  she will talk to save herself  she loves her son and watch her use Porter as the bait.  I hope Daniel Porter has a good lawyer  he got caught up in this mess.

    I don’t know why I am going to bother commenting on this article… most of you seem like wackos.  I will say this, I am so sorry for the family of Mr. Perdomo and I certainly hope that he is found alive and well.  I sincerely mean that and wish nothing but the best for Mr. Perdomo and his family.  I know Daniel Porter, he has been a friend for years.  Daniel Porter is a good- hearted person and I am absolutely shocked about all of this.  I don’t know if what happened is a misunderstanding or if he lost his way.  But I do know this, all of these public speculations that you people are making is only making all of this more upsetting and confusing for the the family of Mr. Perdomo and everyone else.  Just remember that this is not a television show and that there are real people involved.
