    I have not posted on this thread but have read thread #1 frombeginning to end.

    I am amazed at all the posters who state they could have done better than the witnesses and apparently stopped the abduction. Who are they kidding?

    How long does it take for a madman to pull a child into a car and take off?

    As another poster wrote, if it was not for these witnessed he probably would not have been caught and it would end up another cold case. The woman even remembered the correct licence number under all of that pressure. The man who chased him wouldn't have the training in persuit that the police have, so give him a break. He didn't not want to get involved he just went for it. I think this town should be glad that they had such upstanding citizens amongst them. I feel for these witnesses who wll be traumatised by this event. They will probably be examining if they could have done things better but at the time they did what they could. Without them there would be no arrest at this time.
    I will not comment on the Amber Alert. The police department needs to have a review of their protocol there. JMOO

    Those photos look professional. Hope she wasn't targeted.

    Gunshot wound to back of head. Chilling. Don't we usually hear of suffocation?

    I thought of this too. Almost like a quick execution. Pray that he didn't molest her.

    The ONLY thing that gave me a chuckle today. JMO. When the superintendent gave the statement that he did work there...but he was suspended until this matter is resolved. Are you kidding me? Guy is arrested for this murder and he is just "suspended".

    No words for this horrific crime...heavy heart...it is so very similar to Jessica Ridgeway's case in many ways (10 yr old female, broad daylight, vehicle abduction, basement, ligatures, murder)...

    From the probable cause document posted on the prior page by Knox, it sounds like the witnesses were right on with their descriptions. Thank goodness they were able to help get this guy off the street, just wish they could have gotten there in time to save Hailey.

    As mentioned above, the gunshot wound surprises me a bit, as it seems most of the cases like this I've seen involve asphyxiation/ strangulation.

    What else has this monster done? This is most certainly not his first crime, jmo. What other similar unsolved cases are there in the vicinity, and/or places he is known to have lived and worked?

    I had to lol too!

    I immediately wanted to know if the teachers union made it possible for him to be suspended with pay!!!!

    Is he suspended with or without pay?

    I think the witnesses did an amazing job all things considered. I'm grateful to them because I think they are the only reason he was caught so quickly. Not quick enough to save her obviously, but it's possible he'd still be out there otherwise.

    I can't help but wonder if maybe he thought she was someone else, maybe a certain kid from the school he taught at, whom he was mad at for some reason? Haley was pretty tall for her age. This just seems like more than a random opportunistic kidnapping to me. Like it was personal somehow.
    According to the timeline, it seems as though he only had an hour at best to carry out his plans (given time to clean up and do laundry) before he was taken in for questioning. And a gunshot COD?! That's rare in these types of cases.
    Just thinking out loud. I really don't think this was his 1st murder. I think the witnesses are the sole reason we have any resolution at all. I think he rushed and got sloppy because he knew it was only a matter of time until he was caught.
    I am shocked by his father's reaction. Not even a "this can't be true" or "my son couldn't have done this." ?!? He's a football coach.. and his own father just accepts this?! Something's not right.

    I have to believe he was not in full control of his senses. Drug use comes to mind. The abduction being done in broad daylight, with no worry over his actions, his face, and his dad's truck and plates being seen...either this is his first offense committed while high and/or plain stupid, or it's the end of a long series of similar events, where he finally felt utterly invincible. I hope it's the former.

    Those gorgeous family portraits made my heart break a bit, tonight. I'm thankful for her family, that they at least have those recent and beautiful memories. Praying for justice in this life, but I'm also finding solace in the certainty that it will not be lacking in the next...and that this sweet little girl is in an indescribably beautiful and loving place right now.

    Any mention yet, that anyone has found, as what led LE to the laundromat?
    Also, don't know if this has been posted, he was never married.

    Been following since the news hit, just am sick. But agree with posters that witnesses did all they could .... please don't critique them, imagine seeing that & hard as you try ...just helplessness.

    I do agree the Amber alert should have been much faster .....but all fault is squarely on that evil man, whose name I don't want to even type ...the fact he gets another breath after murdering a child .... I just cannot.

    Prayers for her family.

    I would be surprised if the motive was anything other than the usual crimes like this (Jessica Ridgeway, Cherish Periwinkle, Kathlynn Shepard)---sounds like the classic child abduction murder committed by a sex offender, whether or not he was registered. jmo.

    Probably b/c the guy wouldn't talk once they got him to the station, and it took that long to find adequate evidence that would allow them the search warrant. Since she was dead by 8:30, anyway, in hindsight it's a moot point how long it took to get the warrant. And it makes it especially important that they get one legitimately so that all the evidence in the house will be admissible in court.

    More Details coming out

    Springfield police credit the neighbors who not only ran after the kidnapper, but with providing key details that led officers to the suspect's vehicle. That vehicle was registered to a family member who let Wood use it, police said.

    Wood stopped at a laundromat before returning home about four hours after the abduction, police said, who were waiting for the suspect when he arrived.

    If true, he certainly regained his faculties quickly enough to clean up -- wipe down with bleach, body placed in trash bags inside plastic bins, clothes possibly washed at the laundromat, and he was just about to ditch the duct tape when LE happened along.

    JMO, but I think he carried out the crime cold sober.

    I'm so exhausted -- no sleep last night at all. The porch lights for Hailey FB thread has over 104K people attending. Fire stations, patrol cars, truckers, even restaurants are supporting this little sweetheart. I feel so sad for her family. Nite.

    No washer/dryer in the home, or was he washing clothing there to avoid forensic trace evidence? If it's the later, I agree with other posters who feel this wasn't his first child abduction.

    Me too Bessie.

    This guy lived alone, I wonder how much child porn they are going to find there?
