    Just a baby :( . I hope the guards at his prison ensure he is not allowed to take his own life and left accessible to the general inmate population for frequent torture.

    I ordinarily never believe in the death penalty , but I had so hoped and believed that dear little girl might somehow be returned unharmed. :( her poor family.

    When I was a kid, my dad said people like that abductor should be strapped to a chair with a case of dynamite in an open field, and sit there for a few hours, knowing that they would be blown to bits in a few hours.

    I seen this early this morning while I was getting ready for work. I knew when I heard the dude was being booked for first degree murder, that this had gone where nobody wanted it to go.

    There is suppose to be another police report some time around 11am CST. As soon as info comes up, I'll be more than happy to share.

    I've not found dox that he was a coach at the Middle School, so I deleted my post. There is some local news coming out, and a news conference in 2 hours.

    Anyway, this is another sad day for another family of a child. :(

    Unfortunately, you'd be surprised how often it IS their first abduction. Most little kids aren't outside when it's dark.

    maybe his first abduction, however his possible presense in a middle school sends shivers down my spine at the thought of other types of crimes against kids.
