    We truely live in a scary world. Makes you realize we need to hold onto our children a little tighter. When my daughter, who is only 13 now, gets older, I am going to have a hard time letting her get a job or go out into the big bad world without me.
    I hope Megan is found SAFE soon.

    I also do not understand how a company large enough to have checkers at the exit doors to check your receipts does not have a security escort for young women leaving so late at night. I personally get very annoyed at walking two feet from the register at checkout and having to show my receipt. I tolerate it because I am told it is for security purposes. Why is there no security in place for employees, who are certainly more valuable than any piece of merchandise? Prayers for Megan.

    CNN reports: No info on Megan. However, her truck is found in Wilcox, AZ. (about 100 miles? from Tyler TX) A man was seen leaving her truck and has checked into a hospital with a gunshot wound. He is being questioned now. Still no sign of Megan however.
    Surveillance taps show suspect who took Megan, had approached several other women in the Walmart parking lot prior to taking Megan.
    Prayers for Megan! Prayers for her family.

    We have checkers at our Wal-Mart too, but I have never had to show my reciept to them.
    They should have some type of policy in place that NO ONE walks to their car alone... especially at night!
    This doesn't look very good for Megan... I hope it turns out better than it is sounding.

    After watching the video from the Walmart store I can see now how easy it can be for a stranger to just overtake someone.....it was a matter of seconds and not many at that.

    This man was questioned by their security on what he was doing and he answered that he was waiting on a ride......how sick. The surveillance showed him following several other woman but he didn't take action then for whatever reason....

    This happened very close to where I live. It is terribly sad but I am not at all surprised. The parking lots at these stores have almost no lighting and no security. Once you leave the store, they could care less. I do not under any circumstance got to WalMart after dark alone. It is too risky. The worst part is that there is very rarely a parking spot close by so you have to park at the very back. They also make the employees park at the far back corner of the lot. To make that poor girl walk that far in the dark completely alone just makes me want to scream!!!!

    Praying for Megan!!!!!!

    From that article:

    When asked if Wal-Mart policy would have female employees escorted to their vehicles at night and if so, why Ms. Holden was alone, Ms. Gallagher replied: "We always stress safety whether inside or outside of the stores. That is all I will say."

    That's a sickening display of CYA, if you ask me.

    They have apprehended the suspect in AZ, and he has a gunshot wound, but there is NO sign of Megan. This is an awful story and I fear it will have a bad ending. God be with Megan and her family.

    I think if I were Megan's mom and this doesn't end well, I would be suing Wal-Mart for not better protecting their female employees.
