    From the article:

    "There's no case," CNN quoted spokesman Jim Roberts as saying. "If it gets solved, it'll get solved years from now."

    White said it was an offhand remark taken out of context by the reporter.

    "That was a mischaracterization of what Mr. Roberts said," White said. "It was an offhanded comment he probably regrets at this time and wishes he hadn't made."

    He should have stayed "mum" before. Lesson learned, I guess.

    I know that. Mr. Roberts should have kept his mouth shut in the beginning. Glad, Mr. White set the record straight.

    All better? Sometimes, I assume people understand what I mean/think.

    I am afraid that Mr. Roberts is likely to be telling the truth. I am worried that this will turn out to be a cold case. There's just so little information/evidence, and the parents aren't cooperating.
    I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it left.

    Nah, Tuffy. I think they have more than we know. Maybe not a solid case, but hopefully enough for an indictment soon.

    Nah, it was bad wording on my part. I have been thrown off all day. I can't believe anyone could hurt a little baby. Lisa's parents should be cooperating. Closure and justice need to happen. I want to come here and find some good news, sad it's hasn't happened yet. I fear there is no good news coming in this case and I just wish the parents would help put an end to it. My heart is broken for Tyler Dasher, and for all the victims.

    Sorry for the O/T.

    It's great to know that there is a sitting Grand Jury at all times!

    Someone is fired up.

    @DeAnnSmithkc ..."regrets"? well, they'll have to deal with those them selves. Roberts was quoted accurately and in context.

    Is this where reporters come to upbraid one another?

    Unfortunately, I think Jim Spellman probably reported exactly what was said and in context as he mentioned on his twitter. The only thing I wonder is....did Mr. Roberts mean that in reference to Lisa's parents or to anyone.

    Because if they have no compelling evidence against anyone, Lisa's parents or not, NO idea what might have happened to poor little Lisa....well, after yesterday and today I just don't think I can bear it.

    They don't even know if Lisa is dead... how are they going to indict anyone for murder until they have evidence that proves there was a murder? Unless someone confesses, which isn't very likely this long after the disappearance.

    Isn't there always a sitting grand jury? (It is here, not sure about MO.) I know they can call special grand juries, but he said they had no plans to do that just yet. That tells me they don't have a case.
