SAN DIEGO - Detective Troy ...

SAN DIEGO - Detective Troy DuGal has fielded hundreds of leads since entering the home of Joseph and Summer McStay a year ago to find rotten eggs on the kitchen counter and two cereal bowls full of popcorn on the living room futon.
...
"I absolutely know their financials and their friends better than I know my own financials and my wife's friends," says DuGal, 49, a homicide investigator for the last three of his 15 years with the San Diego County Sheriff's Department.
Friday marked one year since the McStays disappeared from their home in Fallbrook - a small town north of San Diego known for its avocado orchards - and DuGal says he is no closer to cracking the case than he was the day that Joseph's brother called to report the family was missing.
...
"I think it's likely that something bad has happened," says DuGal, who is on a second career after serving in the Navy.
...
DuGal hasn't found anyone in her life with that name.
"Summer did not care for her Hispanic heritage," DuGal said.
...
"Summer was adamant that she wanted to purchase a medication called Anger," DuGal said.
...
DuGal thinks the family left the home alone.
"I believe something occurred within those four walls between the four family members that made them leave in a hurry," he said. "It may have been good. It may have been bad. I don't know."
DuGal opened the back of the Isuzu at a towing yard and found a Pottery Barn Kids refrigerator and sink for a playhouse, with children's videos like "Franklin Goes to School" that were purchased at Ross Dress for Less.
The SUV was towed from a lot with a two-hour parking limit. Employees remembered keeping tabs on it.
DuGal says the border crossing surveillance tape appears to show the McStays. The woman is wearing fur and Ugg boots.
...
The FBI assures DuGal that the McStays are not living under witness protection.
...
DuGal believes the family would have sent word home by now if they were safe.
"We're a year into this," he said.

Troy Dugal walked into their living room 11 days later, he saw two bowls of popcorn sitting on futons in front of the TV.
...
Dugal, 50, a homicide detective and the son of a career policeman, was the lead investigator.
...
Dugal didn't see any obvious sign of a struggle.
He went door to door in the neighborhood. No one had seen the McStays in more than a week. Neighbors said they'd grown worried about the dogs and started feeding them.
He interviewed friends and family, all of whom had the same story: "The bottom line," he concluded, "was that life was normal for the McStays up to Feb. 4, and on that day they just vanished."
Dugal ran a check on the family's vehicles. Their green truck was parked in the driveway, but their Isuzu Trooper was missing. Investigators examined a surveillance recording from a neighbor's security camera. It showed an Isuzu Trooper driving away from the McStays' house at 7:47 p.m. on Feb. 4.
Within hours, Dugal found the Trooper. The SUV had been towed on Feb. 8, four days after the family disappeared, from the parking lot of a strip mall in San Ysidro, an hour's drive from the McStay home and a short walk from a pedestrian crossing into Mexico.
Dugal spoke with the two security guards who had been on duty that night.
