I think Paris is too small to move a body on his own. I think he's *likely* too small to physically overtake Yashawnee. He's only 120 lbs. I think he had help.....and I wonder if we will ever know all of the players.
But I swear... those of of you that can consistently read these things are better than I. The lack of grammar and spelling drives me totally crazy. I am so glad I was never a teenager.
Thanks for the warm welcome. I've been reading for a while and now m postng. Watch out bad guys!
Harry has ended his search... Cites not getting financial support as the reason.
"Vaughn's mother, Shaquita Louis, and Reynelda Hayes, the girl's grandmother, issued a statement Monday afternoon, distancing themselves from the independent search-and-rescue worker, Harry Oakes, who conducted his own searches over the weekend."
Not sure if this is important, but when I did a pipl.com search on Parrish's family, right after the news of the murder broke, one of the older family members had some sort of connection with a golf course. I've looked for about an hour tonight and can't find it but I'll try again tomorrow. Seems like it was an male, older relative. Another male person in the family showed up quite a bit as a bartender.
Missing Teen Memorialized At Portland City Hall
Friends and family of a 14-year-old girl who police say was killed last month went to City Hall today to acknowledge councilors' sympathy and express their hopes for the investigation.
As community members struggle to make sense of the strange and tragic case of missing teen 14-year-old Yashanee Vaughn, conspiracy theories abound.
Sgt. Pete Simpson, a police spokesman, wants to put two of those theories to rest: “We do not believe, based on the investigation so far, that gang activity or human trafficking played any part in her death,” he told the Tribune this week.

The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.
From FB page, many are still posting fliers, trying to get the word out to even more people and teens. Some plan to be at Portland high schools when they get out of school this afternoon.

Indictment reveals how investigators believe Yashanee died
Parrish Bennette, the teen who was arrested in connection with the death of a 14-year-old girl, was indicted Friday on charges of murder with a firearm and manslaughter with a firearm.
Bennette is scheduled for arraignment at 4:30 p.m. Friday in juvenile court in Portland.
I don't mean to be dumb.....but how can he be indicted on murder AND manslaughter for one person's death? Sorry if it's completely obvious to everyone else!
Yashanee Vaughn's mother pleads for daughter's return after Parrish Bennette indicted for Portland girl's murder
After Parrish I. Bennette Jr. was arraigned Friday on murder and manslaughter charges, family and friends of the still-missing 14-year-old victim said that's not enough.
Wearing shirts that read "Where is she?" they vowed not to rest until the body of Yashanee L. Vaughn is found.
I applaud the father for going to the police. That must have been difficult. I wonder why it took him that long? Didn't he notice the blood before? Did the Parrish get rid of the sheets so that the blood was only on the mattress?
This is a sad case. Kids that walk on the wrong side of the law. Still, they do not deserve to die. I hope that the kids in the area learn some valuable lessons here.
How long after she went missing did he leave for California?
And, sorry if I missed it, do we have an address for the suspect?
I looked back on this thread and noticed that no mention was made of the super lunar event the very evening that Yashanee was last seen. I realize that the police spokesman has stated that he wants to put to rest any "theories" related to gang activity or trafficking...but what about "dabbling" in the occult? The super full moon was a very important "ritual" night for those interested in the occult...those who are Pagan and abhor all violence and sadly, also for those who follow the "left hand path", as in Anton LaVey's version of satanism.
I also agree that it's highly unlikely that Parrish moved Yashanee's body without help. Just wondering. It surely wouldn't be the first time a lovely young girl was killed by "dabblers".
Yashanee had a tattoo on her leg which said Bonnie B in Chinese letters. That intrigues me. First you have to wonder how she got the tattoo and who is Bonnie. In checking on the two pages of "bonnies" on Urban Dictionary, one definition jumped out at me:
"An "in the closet" lesbian that enjoys partying. Usually small and graceful. Also likes to steal peoples virginities."
I know that the police spokesman has said that we can rule out trafficking. I'm not ruling anything out. I know where our daughter was tattooed by her pimp--on her lower back and across her chest. She's tattooed with his name. I know that women play a huge part in the trafficking "game", as procurers usually, but that the young girls "belong" to the pimp. Has anyone read about women who traffic girls to female clients?
Obviously, it could be a girlfriend's or a cousin's name or even a street name but I'm just curious.
ETA: Probably a street name, according to this comment:
There's another disturbing comment here. It's said that Parrish's father's birthday is March 19th. That could have lots of implications.

I checked and didn't see this posted:
"Bennette's father, Parrish Bennette Sr., spent more than 13 years as a bus driver for the Tri-County Metropolitan Transportation District of Oregon. He quit his job on April 1, the day the charges were announced, said transportation department spokeswoman BW."
Yashanee was last seen at last seen at around 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 19, at the number 72 TriMet bus stop at Thompson Street and 82nd Avenue near Madison High School. I wonder which bus the father drove and if his son ever road along with him.
A new article in the Oregonian with a timeline provided by Yashanee's family. The first mention I've seen of the girl's father, also:
Yashanee Vaughn's family describes efforts to find missing 14-year-old Portland girl
So, that most certainly IS Yashanee's father's FB page and that must be her throwing the hand sign. The father was most recently arrested in Portland, however, in mid-December. I'm not certain where he lives currently.
Vinelink lists Yashanee's father as being under Community Supervision until this September by Multnomah County's (Portland) Gang Unit. He seems to have ties to Compton, CA. He refers to his daughter as both Yashawnee and Bonnie Bang on his FB page. I guess that's the Bonnie B tattoo.
