On July 12, 2007, neighbors called for help after hearing a loud explosion at Joey Lynn Offutt's house. Her home was in flames by the time emergency personnel arrived. Joey's six-month-old son was killed in the fire but Joey and her red Saturn were missing.
Friends and family hadn't heard from her for days. Her home health nurse had come by the house days earlier and found her car in the driveway. Inside the house was a car seat and a note on the floor. Joey didn't answer knocks on the door.

Four days later, officers found her red Saturn in a nearby apartment complex where she had once lived.
Fire officials ruled the fire in Joey's home as arson, set in two separate places in the house. There have been no viable leads and Joey remains missing to this day. Days before her disappearance, a neighbor reported seeing her walking with her stroller. He called out to her and she ignored him. The neighbor said he didn't recall seeing a baby in the stroller.
What do you think happened to Joey?
