May you rest in peace.....Tori Stafford
Missing but never forgotten Nicole Louise Morin last seen July 30th 1985
..IMO a terrible deed was commited MURDER of an innocent 9 year old who was left for 3 mths in an undigified manner ...naked from the waist down and wrapped in GARBAGE BAGs and under pile of heavy rocks in a secluded farm area ...chances of being found slim!........ I do believe she was also RAPED ..as tough as this is to TYPE...IMO again! ....I feel strongly IMO that the evidense is CLEAR that MR was INVOLVED! ... it is clearly shown him driving his car after tori was ABUCTED ... so I MUST say I am PUZZLED as to why there are so many opinions that HE MAY not be guilty ...Imo I am having a very hard time reading this now....Yes I know the defense has not presented their case ...BUt ...IMO only>>> How can they possibly get him off ....???...He is ON VIDEO in numerous locations on that horrid day ...April 8 , 2009....again this in my opinion and yes I do understand MANY MAY have conflicting views and so be it .....But when someone is CLearly on Video ...kind of a no brainer IMO ...Plus he had 3 mths to get rid of the evidence( which he tried very hard to do..)if so much time did not lapse after the MURDER ... I am confident that we would have Little LEFT DOUBT in all of our minds more percisely what had occured ! ...thanks robynhood...I do respect others opposing views we all have the freedom in Canada to do have different views .BUT it all seems very concrete IMO again...I guess soon we will hear the defense's side ...and sure they are INTITLED to do this ...just hope it is NOT the same OLD BS about how bad a person TLM is and her music taste as IMO ...this holds very little crediablity ...especially her music ..OMG...hold on to your hats as I am Not looking forward to their side ....I think Tori's family has been thru the worst nightmare any Parent could face ....IMO I feel the TORI LAW needs to be looked at as crimes against children in our nation seems to growing terribly! ......especially by young offenders i ....Please listen closely was commented made ...and yes I do want to hear it explained as the defense indicated before the TRIAL that>>> something like...do not make judgements till you hear our side ....well all ears ...Mr. Defense!...robynhood...I stress again this is just IMO again!..robynhood
I firmly believe that TLM and MR acted TOGETHER in this crime against Torie from beginning to end.
Are there any TWEETS from the trial today?
I don’t know if this helps at all Ardy, I was only there for her first day of testimony, so I didn’t get to see what happened on cross and I am just going by memory mostly. I can be quite a cynical person at times (like most I am sure) I just didn’t get the impression she was lying the whole time. She was very detailed in her statements about how, what, where MR was doing to TS, I couldn’t go into that if I was lying, but then I am nothing like her and it’s hard to know how her mind works. I think she put on a tough front, but maybe wasn’t as tough on the inside, yeah no hesitation in assaulting/stabbing people etc, but I think that she did want to feel loved, she got upset while talking about her childhood and being bullied as her mom was an alcoholic etc. In no way am I saying that I think she was completely duped and manipulated by MR, but I think there is a lot of truth to her story and they both were in this together.
So I do think there is testimony that we are not getting via the tweet system or even in news articles.
I know there is testimony from TM saying she had met TLM on a few occassions, while purchasing drugs from her mother and then the discussion regarding dog breeding, though I don't recall TM saying she knew MR. Then again, I don't recall her saying she didn't know him either, though I think someone mentioned she had mentioned that in one of the pressers (I'm assuming after MR was arrested).
Many that live deserve death. And some die that deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then be not too eager to deal out death in the name of justice, fearing for your own safety. Even the wise cannot see all ends.

Remembering Tori Posted less than an hour ago by Blair R. Wilson
More than 3 years following the disappearance and untimely passing of 8 year old Tori Stafford, memories of the little girl continue to flourish in her favourite color.
Purple wristbands were handed out this morning by Tori’s Uncle Robert Stafford to members of the media at London’s courthouse prior to legal arguments between the defense and the Crown at the first degree murder trial of Michael Rafferty.
Wristbands were also handed to some members of the courts.
The wristbands, a collaborative effort provided by Tori’s Aunt and Uncle who flew out from Alberta over the weekend, along with Tori’s Grandmother Doreen, illustrate Tori’s birth date and the date Tori was lured away from her public school – April 8, 2009.
A small graphic of a ribbon and a butterfly are also embedded on the purple wristbands – one of Tori’s favourite creatures of nature.
An inscription was also placed on the wristbands where one Reporter gratefully accepted it, smiled and said quietly to the Stafford family "thank you, I will keep this forever”.
The first degree murder trial will resume Wednesday morning at 10 am.
Does anyone know where I can get or purchase those bracelets?? TIA

Respectfully, I don't remember anyone saying that you can't pull up into the school. Both myself and Ardy questioned whether you could because, at many schools, you can't.Originally Posted by maxfactor
And for those who think he couldn't have just pulled up to Oliver Stephens to pick them up( if he really thought they were babysitting) I just found Oliver Stephens on Google Street View and lo and behold school buses lined up with the parents vehicles lined up behind them. So IMO that is just a load of cr*p.
Dang, my link isn't working!! Swedie!!! Help!!! lol
As you can see by the google streetview, there is no parking on the street at any time on the school side, and during school arrival, lunch and departure times on the other side of the street. Judging by Kamille's photos of the views, it appears to be taken during school times since the buses are there, and the street itself is quite clear of cars parked illegally waiting.
Across from the school:

Terri-Lynne McClintic pleads guilty to first-degree murder and is convicted. She is handed a sentence of mandatory life imprisonment, with a chance of parole in 25 years
She said Rafferty took the battery out of his cellphone and that he told her cover Stafford up with a black pea coat in the backseat. McClintic told the court that as she spoke with Stafford, the little girl told her that her favourite colour is purple, her favourite TV show is Hannah Montana and her favourite holiday is Halloween.

http://http://www.ctv.ca/CTVNews/Can...begins-120116/Rafferty also faces an additional charge of sexual assault causing bodily harm, reported Delaney. The charge, which is listed on Rafferty's indictment, was laid in June 2010.

I thought this post from SurfieTX in the Isabel Celis thread was interesting, and sure did suit this case.
