Police on Friday issued Vermont's first-ever Amber Alert, a missing-person report extensively sent to media and even to cell phone customers who have signed up to receive such messages. Thomas said Sunday authorities had received more than 150 tips in response to that notification.

http://www.rutlandherald.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080630/NEWS04/806300391

Being this is the first Amber Alert in the state, does it mean there haven't been other endangered missing children or does it mean they are so stringent with the recommended guidelines that they have failed to use it?

I have found other states that take the guidelines as the actual rules which should be done on a case by case basis. This is the way the guidelines were intended to be used, imo. Other states have learned to use them appropriately with much success.

How horrible this is!!!

And you know what? I am pissed off!
This poor little girl having her own myspace which was not monitored by her parent and then being allowed to hang out with a SEX OFFENDER!

When I read the article today about her uncle (and it seems to always be the uncle or moms boyfriend who is the creep) being a RSO, it made me sick and now I really believe this poor little girl is no longer with us.

I want to know who allowed this girl to be with this animal and I want the person charged. You do not allow your child to be with a rapist. EVER. I don't care if its dear Uncle Steve who just had that one incident 10 years ago, the freak is not safe!

Another example why we should never ever allow rapists out of jail.It is possible the mother and father didn't know, but the step-father and grandparents must have. You are right tho. This man should not have been around any children for any reason and certainly not having them spend the nights at his house!

I can't believe that the mother would not have known about this, it was her sisters husband for petes sake. Not to mention, as others have said, this is a small town, word gets out. Can anyone find out how much time he did for the 93 crime? Then add on probation and the family didn't know? I'm not buying it. IMO

Take this for what it's worth, but there is a poster on the "In Sessions" boards, who claims it was common knowledge this guy was a RSO. She's from the local area where Brooke and her mom lives.

True, but why didn't it come out immediately when Brooke went missing if people knew? The small town theory should have kicked early on and it should have been the topic of discussion all over the internet. The first we caught wind of it was from Swannie, IIRC, when she was looking up RSOs in the area. (I don't think we knew at the time that he was the uncle tho.)

The poster I'm talking about on the In Sessions board is the first person to mention the uncle was a RSO. A couple of days ago. Then I saw it mentioned on here later. She is the one who said that people around the uncle knew about his past. Again..take it for what it's worth, she might assume people around him knew, because she and her family knew.

This is correct, I didn't know the uncles name ( had we known that every one of us would have had that posted) He stood out to me because of the kidnapping charge as well. I actually wrote his name down but didnt post it since I had nothing to back it up. When I saw what the uncles name was last night I could have fainted.

I also can't believe that the reporters didnt get wind of this either, they could have gotten the uncles name easily and wham!

I'm thinking that if he was the person who originally gave LE all the pertinent info about where she "said' she was going, what she was planning on doing, etc. that they needed to take that and run with it...as he very well may have been the very last person to have talked to her. Of course, they were aware of his status, but his original story IMO had to be investigated thoroughly. The Uncle had to have known he would be suspected. I think that was one of the reasons it was kept quiet...and, perhaps, the reason DM didn't want to answer questions about the family. I personally don't understand why they needed to play it down, not when there is a child involved. Perhaps, they were watching him. I also think the charge (and I'm sure it's a valid charge) came when it did to keep him from fleeing. I'm wondering if somehow Brooke became aware of what he's been doing online. I've gone back to the store video and at one point she looks towards the door...like she can't wait to leave (?). At first, I thought it was to see if her "ride" came...but she just looks way to uncomfortable. Perhaps, the story she told the Uncle was just a ruse to get away from HIM.

I personally don't understand why they needed to play it down, not when there is a child involved.

Because in order to find her alive, people had to search for her. If they automatically thought the Uncle/family was involved, the urgency goes down for some, as the conclussion would seem foregone. I still hope she is alive, somewhere, that if the Uncle did this he has her in hiding or knows more explicitly who does, not that he killed her.

Fox is reporting K-9s, helicopters, etc. on his property...so it is obvious this must have to do directly with Brooke.

Not sure if the Anchor mispoke, but he said that Brooke's computer linked back to the uncle. Interesting.
WHAT?
omg. Cable news gets facts mixed up all of the time, so..grain of salt with that until it's been repeated by other sources.
Would he pretend to be a young guy just to get her to meet him somewhere?
Do you think he planned it that far in advance? Playing with her on myspace until he had the perfect opportunity to ask her to meet him somewhere.

I would not be surprised if he used a younger male persona to lure her from myspace at all. (I spent hours last night looking for just that.) He could easily have pulled that off knowing Brooke and knowing the things she was interested in. Photos etc. are easy to come by and she would never have known. Then to be the one to drop her off for her "meeting" would mean that he covered all his bases including being seen on the video going the other way to back up his story.

Knowing there was no one there for her to meet gives him the perfect opportunity to swing back by to supposedly "check on her" and offer to give her a ride. No one else is the wiser if he did it out of the view of the public so no one sees her getting into his vehicle and after others saw her wandering around on the streets alone prior for an hour or so.

We are talking about a small community and according to one person who claims people did know...they obviously didn't care enough to do anything to prevent this.

While I doubt the father knew, the sister's in-laws must have known. They should have made her and Brooke's mom aware of the uncle's past. However, if she did know...she was negligent to allow a relationship of any kind with this man.

I am so furious right now, I can hardly breathe. How you can let someone like him around any young children in that family is beyond words. I'm sure he had them all convinced (gee, the RSO website says he's not being supervised so he's ok, right?!) that he was fine. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if he wasn't the one that got her involved in Myspace in the first place. Maybe she should have been living with her dad.

I think at this point that is a given since the father was trying his best to do the right thing by taking her myspace down in the first place. He was trying to protect her as he mentioned...then he mentioned she lived with her mother...which reading between the lines to me could mean that the mother didn't follow through with his decision to prevent her from getting online.

It would not have prevented this perv from being around her tho since she was allowed to spend the night at his house. One of the parents must have agreed to it.

Here's how I see this possibly happening. She goes to the laundromat waiting to meet the on-line guy, he doesn't show (because he's the uncle), so she starts to walk back home. The uncle pulls up alongside her in his car (he's been waiting for her) and says...what happened, get in and I'll take you home. Then that was the end.

Is it true that Vermont is one of the most lenient states when it comes to prosecuting sex offenders, I seem to recall hearing discussions about VT on TV, wasn't there a judge there that let child rapist go, something like that? Don't mean to "dis" the whole state, I have visited there many times and it's a beautiful place with good people, but it is a very very liberal state. DP in Vermont, no way.

Thank you, Taximom.

I think what DM said about this myspace account is still confusing me in the back of my mind http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=270831610

They said that the family set up this account that they set up for her and changed the password when she started abusing it. It was accessed on 6-25 and says "brooke thinks she has them fooled and mood is satisfied. It's still a little odd and I wish we had more clarification on this.

At Jacques' home on East Bethel Road in Randolph, Vermont State Police are currently conducting a search of his house and property. About 12:30 this afternoon, a helicopter began circling the area immediately around his house, including his backyard, then widened its search area. The helicopter is currently parked in the side yard.

Vermont State Police officers wearing protective gear have been seen entering and leaving the home.

Police said earlier today that the investigation, which had centered around the Floating Bridge in Brookfield where articles of Bennett's clothing had been found last week, had shifted to Jacques' home and property. State Police from Connecticut and Massachusetts were assisting in the search, and additional K-9 units were being brought in, as well.

If LE has known all along that the Uncle's story was fabricated and that he was really their POI all along, I will have to give LE a high five for keeping it under wraps until such a time (as now) to be able to charge him with something and bring him in for questioning about Brooke.

They kept saying the uncle and cousin dropped her off. This could have been his plan, (alibi) he then took the cousin somewhere and went back for her which would explain the 45 minutes (or less) that she was last seen.
Let's also remember, we still don't know what transpired the night before...there's more time unaccounted for. I wonder who was home at the uncle's the night before with Brooke. Something very strange about that.

I don't know how he could have been locked away all that time. The child he is jail for right now for assaulting, says it has gone on for five years, starting when she was 9 and ending just a few weeks ago. So, he has atleast been out since 2003. :confused:


actually, it states he was done with "state supervision in 2006" that could mean he got out of jail in 03 but had 3 years of probation. IMO

I'm wondering since the Uncle was involved with a "child sex ring" that maybe he had set up Brooke with one of his other cohorts that were involved?

Maybe he didn't have anything to do with Brooke's disappearance directly. But found out later that this cohort did do something with Brooke and so they both came up with this story about Brooke meeting up with a friend (which would be true in a way or actually is the truth if this cohort was the one corresponding with her on Myspace).

I live near Montpelier, my husband works there. To answer a question from several days ago, Montpelier has plenty of fliers up. Randolph is about 20 miles from here...
One of the reasons it makes sense to search fields as opposed to a wooded area right now is because of the weather - we have had rain almost every day for several weeks... Not a lot but enough to prevent local farmers from haying their fields and the grass in those fields has gotten very tall. It could be conceivable possible to miss a body even with aerial searches.

She could still be alive though. Especially with a child sex ring. The victim that he was charged with today said they where abused for 5 years and they are still alive.

(snip)
In court Monday, a pallid Jacques handcuffed and shackled at the waist entered a not guilty plea through public defender L. Brooke Dingledine, who persuaded Judge Theresa DiMauro to grant bail over the objections of Porter.

Jacques has 1993 convictions for kidnapping and aggravated sexual assault and there is "a threat of prejudicial violence to this particular juvenile complainant," said Porter, in arguing for no bail. "Her personal safety was threatened."

He also noted the serious nature of the crime, which could lead to a life prison term, and said Jacques had violated his probation.

"There's no condition or series of conditions that could guarantee the safety of the juvenile complainant in this case," said Porter.

Dingledine said Jacques has a full-time job as an operations manager for a company in West Lebanon, N.H., owns his home and a rental property next door, has strong family ties and a family that depends on his income.

DiMauro said she was considering barring Jacques from leaving the county, but Dingledine who called the corroborating evidence on the sex charge "very sparse" said he needed to get to work. So the judge ordered a 24-hour curfew except for work if he makes bail.

The other victim is a relative! This sounds horrible:


snip

Michael Jacques, 42, of Randolph, a registered sex offender who was one of the last people to see Brooke Bennett before she vanished, pleaded not guilty to aggravated sexual assault and was being held on $250,000 bail.

The alleged victim, a relative of Jacques', was a girl who says Jacques assaulted her over a five-year period, beginning when she was 9 years old and ending a few weeks ago, Orange County State's Attorney Will Porter said.

In an affidavit released afterward, Vermont State Police Detective Sgt. William Jenkins said the girl told police that when she was 9 or 10, she was told — in a telephone call and in a note left under her pillow — that she had been selected for enrollment in a "program for sex" and that Jacques was to be her trainer.

The alleged victim, identified only as "A.R." in court papers, said she was told two other girls were in the program, too.

"The first who does it lives and the second gets her throat cut," she told police, according to the affidavit.

BTW- to address an earlier post- DM never came out and said she was in any of the organized searches for Nick Garza, but she did say she had gone down there after the point of entry was established. It sounds as if she's just a concerned citizen.


Maybe she is a reporter... Media would possibly follow up after a point of entry was established...
My dearest RR and Angelwngs,:blowkiss::blowkiss:
RR, glad you mentioned that DM never came out and said that she was not involved in any searches, because she never said that she was. Thank-you. She took the time to take photos for us of the area and she did a very good job. It took her alot of time to upload the photos also.
DM is not a reporter, just a person who wants to help. Just like RR stated.

Love and Respect,
dark_shadows

OMG sick sick sick. That poor girl to find a note like that under her pillow. He should be shot on sight!

They had better put him in alot of armor to move him around because I think alot of people is going to want to shoot him before this story comes out.

and instead he gets bail. Lovely!

I can't believe he even gets bail. Nothing like letting him loose on all the children.:mad:

This is horrible for the victims when the Perp is arrested, there is a sense of safety now that they are behind bars, when he makes bail, that child is going to go nuts.I would suggest that someone in VT contact the local chapter of B.A.C.A. immediately. They will surround the child with 24 hour protection.

Unfortunately there is always some idiot out there that feels sympathy for these creeps and feels it's their civic duty to bail them out. They've got rights and all, ya know?

Ironic how this has broke open less than a week after the supreme court threw out the death penalty for S/O's.

No local VT chapters...Yes, I corrected that. There are surrounding states which have chapters. I don't know if they will travel, but they could have connections in VT to set something up. It is a wonderful organization to help protect the child until they go to trial. It gives the family and child a real sense of safety from the perp. Something about having a Biker on your driveway camped out watching seems to make pedos scared. Hmmm...

I certainly hope that FOX got it right!!!!!!!

NO WAY should he step one foot outside the jail!! If I lived in that state, I know I would NEVER NEVER vote again for this Judge!!

I am just sitting here in total shock they would offer bail to this creep. WTH? They convicted him once already! They know for a FACT he has sexually abused another child and kidnapped them. A jury of his peers determined it was true and he was guilty.

What Judge in their right mind would look at that type of past offense and say, "Cut him loose! He is OK to be free for now as long as he pays attention to his freaking curfew!"?!


I think that they have to "offer" bail unless LE can prove the person is a flight risk. This guy was arrested over the weekend and has not hired his own attorney - he has a public defender -- therefore I'm thinking there is no way that he can afford the $250k bail.

Actually I think that a good idea to have a biker protect this child. I am worried that he can make bail. He is a homeowner and they may take that in lieu of the 10% cash. Don't know if that is a possibility in Vermont but in some states bail can be secured with real property.

Well, if he owns property, I think it might be easier than you think. He can always put it up as collateral.
