My first post has not been read very well:
Hmmm...Ok, I'm listening. If the parents didn't have anything to do with it I'll be surprised. They sure acted guilty...or maybe they are just odd. Either way, I hope there is resolution to this horrible crime.
This was an OPINION, just like every other unqualified opinion from everyone who was not there. We all are influenced by TV, newspaper, internet, police and defence arguments. IN MY OPINION...they did not act in a way consistant with my experiences and knowledge of others I've seen. Lots of people suspected the parents. The police know the huge % of these type crimes are committed by parents or other close relatives...that is why they are almost always considered as suspects. I suspected the parents about 80%, I never was 'sure'...how could I be ?
And really...what difference does my (or your) opinion make ? The facts will speak for themselves.
CognizantJust because some people keep their emotions private and choose not to show them on national television does not mean they are not "feeling" the exact same thing that any parent of a murdered child feels. This is not odd in the least. It is a common personality trait and is also a common reaction when one is in shock from grief. It is hardly evidence of any guilt. Conversely, many guilty of crimes can put on quite convincing acts of innocence for the public. This means absolutely nothing.
I repeat, for the last time. I hope if this guy is guilty of this particular crime, he gets convicted and he gets executed. This will release the stain of suspicion on her parents. I hope he is not just confessing for the notoriety. There needs to be closure on this.
On another note: I wish this much attention and enormous police expense was given equally to poor people's kids who have gone missing or have been killed. It just always seems the pretty, white, rich girls get the real money thrown towards the investigations of their tragic deaths. I am taking nothing from them, but, there are thousands of kids killed like this in the US every year.
We don't hear or see much about them.
