My mom worked with Ashley's mom. It sickens my that her killer is still out there.
Just awful. Even with as little rain as we got this summer, I'm sure there's just not a ton of forensics at this point. :( That's just horrifying, and I can only imagine how everyone in these little girls' lives feels.
To those of you making jokes in this thread a few pages back, **** off. Just because you don't live near the area doesn't make it alright for you to completely derail a thread when my entire community has been in mourning over this for nearly 6 months.
didn't get to hear past the first minute of the actual press conference - I don't suppose if they said whether that was an area that had been searched by volunteers earlier? (wondering if the ******* moved them later on). Hopefully, whoever it was, was a ******* and left evidence all over so they can catch them. What a terrible ending to this :( Hopefully their loved ones will find closure not having to wonder and worry every single day.
Unless the killer is caught, we may never really know what happened. The son of a former neighbor of mine was found dead. Police withheld some details (like his hands had signs of being bound) and said they thought it suicide. They wanted the killer to relax and let something slip. Sadly, hasn't happened. And no one except the family and a few friends know the truth. Everyone else thinks he jumped off a bridge.
I dont begrudge the police from doing it. They need to use every trick they can. But it just shows how difficult it is to catch a killer.
Sad this is how it most likely ends, and I hope they catch the perpetrator to really provide some closure.
Sad ending to this story. Hopefully the police have some leads now that will lead them to find who did this.
Been following this off and on. This is a sad day indeed. Not trying to belittle this at all, but what I think is interesting is the automatic assumption that this is murder. 30 years ago, I think the automatic assumption by most people would have been that it was some sort of accident that had happened. We go from assuming a non-violent tragedy to assuming murder, even though murder rates of children really have not increased in the past 30 years. (But every child murder that does happen gets near world-wide publicity. Maybe that's the answer right there)
I will apologize if my statements over the pre presconfrence were offending anyone related to this event. Let it be said that I was very much interested in what was said but not in the terrible result and any comment made by me that was misconstrued or inappropriate as it relates to these innocents live, it was wholly not intended that way, and my apologies if needed.
