Blakeslee's 'coded' diary revealed a dark side of Breest
She tried to sever their relationship, but Breest continued to pressure her to marry him, a proposal she rejected. Still, Breest would tell people Luella was his fiancee, Blakeslee said. Blakeslee knew Breest and liked him, finding him "interesting" if something of a braggart.
"I felt terrible," he said. In his heart, he knew his sister was dead, but still, he said, he felt there was a 1 percent chance she had found a way to leave her life in Hooksett and Breest behind.
This past July, the state released Luella's remains to Blakeslee, who had them cremated. He was given most of her personal belongings including some jewelry, her lucky coin and her diary, written in a codified French and English - so snooping individuals, particularly Breest, would be unable to read it - which her best friend translated for state police, Blakeslee said.
Blakeslee said state police investigators found newspaper clippings of the Horn case inside a dresser drawer in Luella's bedroom after her disappearance. No one was ever charged in Horn's death.
During his visit home in May, Luella told him what was happening, that Breest allegedly punched a man she was with, that he was stalking her, that he was playing games with her German shepherd, King, taking him from her home, so that she searched the neighborhood for hours, only to return home and find him tied up in the yard.
