Maybe i have watched too many Law and Order episodes over the years, but I still wonder about the parents and what involvement they had in this. Their history with drugs and legal problems, it makes me wonder if they had some debts unpaid or ratted someone out and the girls were payback.
the father was expected to take a plea deal the day after they went missing
I'm of the stance that attention grabbing murders and other awful things such as this should be handled in a way where the perpetrator is stripped of their identity, locked up, executed and thrown into an unmarked grave never to be mentioned again. Pretty much impossible as morbid curiosity would get the best of most, and there would obviously also be people who knew the perp who would speak out. That being said, it would be great to give the finger to any attention seeking murderer seeking to be infamous in some way. You do the crime, you cease to exist...
Anyway, not saying that the girls murderer was out for attention, but again, how nice would it be to hear that the cops got their guy(s) and they were no longer without years of hearing so and so's name...
Clearly this is all fantasy, and there would be major issues with due process/human rights, but being from NE Bremer County, I want this sick bastard caught and "disappeared." I'd much rather spend my time remembering the victims than the giant dirt stick that harmed them.
Whoever killed these two girls knows the area. I spent 13 years in the area and this is in the middle of nowhere and is a short drive from Evansdale area.
I missed the presser yesterday. Did they say that the girls had been there for a long time, or looked they had recently been placed there?
There were rumors of an upcoming arrest tonight but the Sherriff's department is now denying it.
