Default FBI tells family of Kristin Smart, who vanished 23 years ago, to be prepared for news

The family of Kristin Smart, the California college student who vanished 23 years ago after attending a party near her school, was reportedly told by federal agents to be prepared for news and to secure a family spokesperson.

Denise Smart, the woman's mother, told the Stockton Record that she was contacted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and was told to "be ready."

"This is really going to be something you don't expect. We want to give you the support you need," she said she was told.

The report said the FBI was not clear on what the development was, she was told that her family might want to "get away for a while," and she should secure a family spokesperson.

The mother admitted to the paper that since she was told about the development she has had anxiety.

Smart, who was 19 when she vanished, attended California Polytechnic State University and was last seen in the early morning of May 25, 1996, while returning to her dorm after a party near the campus. At the time, another student told authorities he left Smart near her dormitory after they and another female student walked back.

According to reports at the time, a neighbor in Smart’s dorm called university police the next morning and reported that she hadn’t returned. But other students said they thought she had gone camping, so officers didn’t declare her missing for three days.

The student who told of leaving Smart near her dorm was questioned by authorities and his home was searched but he was not arrested or charged in the case. A California law, the Kristin Smart Campus Safety Act of 1998, now requires campus police to spell out exactly when they will call in outside authorities to investigate a violent crime.

"It's probably imminently going to break I would say within a month," the mother said. "Something's going to happen."

On the night she disappeared, Smart attended a birthday party for a fellow student, which fell on Memorial Day weekend. At approximately 2:00 a.m. on May 25, 1996, she was found passed out on a neighbor's lawn by two fellow students, Cheryl Anderson and Tim Davis, who both had just left the party. They helped Smart to her feet and decided to walk her back to her nearby dormitory. Another student from the party, Paul Flores, joined their group and offered to help the two return Smart to her dorm room safely.

Davis departed the group first since he lived off campus and had driven to the party. Anderson was the second to depart the group after she told Flores that he could walk Smart back to her dorm, since he lived closer. Flores stated to police that he walked Smart as far as his dormitory, Santa Lucia Hall, and then allowed her to walk back to her Muir Hall dorm by herself. This was the last known sighting of her. She did not have any money or credit cards at the time she went missing.

The University Police Department originally suspected that Smart had gone on an unannounced vacation, as was common among students over the holidays, and as a result were slow in reporting her as a missing person to local law enforcement.

During the Laci Peterson murder investigation, there were unfounded rumors in the media that Laci's husband Scott Peterson had something to do with Smart's disappearance due to their simultaneous attendance at the Cal Poly campus. There was a brief initial inquiry into whether Peterson was tied to the disappearance, with Peterson denying any involvement, and he was eventually ruled out as a suspect by police.

Smart's disappearance remains an unsolved case, although compelling evidence was discovered that points to Paul Flores knowing exactly what happened to her. Although her body was never discovered, Smart’s bloody earring was found by a tenant at the former residence of Paul Flores’s mother. This earring has since mysteriously disappeared from police custody. Between 1996 and 2007, many searches were conducted, some using police dogs trained to detect the scent of human remains, including searches of properties owned by the Flores family. No useful leads were found.

On January 18th 2020 the Stockton Record reported that the FBI informed Smart's family that additional news about her disappearance would be coming and that the family "might want to get away for a while" but did not provide any specific information.

Kristin Smart is not related to Elizabeth Smart, a Salt Lake City, Utah teen who was abducted in June 2002 and found alive in March 2003.

I read this earlier and thought it was certainly unusual for the FBI to make an announcement like this. Makes me wonder if she’s alive

Wonder if she ran off and has been in hiding all this time with her lover, master, or whatever...

Probably found her locked in the basement of Ed Buck's house, and they've been trying to re-acclimate her to society before they tell the parents.

If I was a female with the last name of "Smart", I'd invest in a weapon.

The FBI didn't make the announcement - Denise Smart did:

Quote:
Kristin's mother Denise told the Stockton Record she was recently contacted by FBI agents.

"Be ready," the FBI reportedly told her. "This is really going to be something you don’t expect."

Denise Smart also says she was advised to find a family spokesperson and potentially prepare to "get away for a while." Smart told the Stockton Record she expected news "within a month."
Has the FBI confirmed this information? What are the odds that Denise has been driven batshit crazy by this whole ordeal and imagined (or made up) this alleged conversation with the FBI?

About as likely as you making up a story about your wife moving to another state for a promotion.

I can't picture the FBI doing anything like this. I could understand "We have some information & we'd like to meet with you."

Apparently, it wasn't a current FBI agent that spoke to her:
