    I'm not sure I believe that. Older boyfriend, staying with pregnant younger girlfriend in a hotel? I don't know.

    I get where you're coming from. It doesn't quite add up. I give him the benefit of the doubt as police don't seem interested in him.

    I hope it was strategy and not disrespect that kept Tiffany out of the papers. There are lots that go missing. Off partying, sulking, phones out of credit. Every day. There is a schoolgirl missing in the Lockyer valley right now. Heart breaking.

    has her Facebook name and her page is up. It is starting to seem as if she didn't know better than to do this. A 40 year-old boyfriend!?

    "In his 40s, he had been dating her since she was just 12."

    Crikey.

    She had been reported to the dating group's administration by concerned users. She had been telling people she was 19 or 20.

    Where is her mother in all of this? My daughter was a handful at 16 and we went through hell but I didnt let her live with a 40 yo man or sell herself for money. I know sometimes you cant stop kids but at 12 you can stop her from dating a 30 plus yr old. There are laws about stuff like that...USE THEM!

    Just wanted to add, Im not blaming the mother..but FFS the lady could have reeled her in a little bit NO? I also agree those who are lifers, need to stay for LIFE..NO EXCUSES.

    i have a DD the same age as this girl, they can be a blessing and a handful at the same time...this is awful, 16 and already experiencing the worst in life and a 40 yo "partner" who "didn't know" she was working as a prostitute! seriously?
    this child was failed by the adults in her life, i am sorry for her mother and sister but why child services were not called when she was "dating" a 30+ yo and she was 12.??
    we need to change the sentencing re: sex offenders, especially in cases of child abuse

    I have thinking that she may have seen the accused more than once and he was aware of 40yo boyfriend. He may have wanted a more permanent sexual relationship with Tiffany, thought he could take care of her and the bub better and she said no. Only wondering out loud.

    The hinky meter is way up on this one!
    A 40 year old dating a 16 year old that is plain wrong. What is the mum/sister doing or thinking? Were the family estranged despite their proclamations of Tiffany being a family girl? I fail to see if she was a family girl how you let your daughter place ads for sex. Or how a family girl seeks prostitution as a source of income when she is so family oriented.

    UGH how does a 40 year old man parade around a 16 year old as his girlfriend. More like PIMP! She was living in a motel, was she being supplied with alcohol so she and her friends could party? Drugs haven't been mentioned but this has to be at least part of the equation here.

    Then the drugs took hold and she needed more money so turned to prostitution....? I so hope it is much less gruesome.
    IMHO MOO MOO MOO

    Yes, the pimp word came to my mind as well.

    Now that I know how old he is I'm struggling to give the benefit of the doubt.

    There was something odd about his statement too, "She was special to me."

    Well, doesn't that go without saying if she was your girlfriend?

    I was also going to say that it's possible her mother couldn't control her, but the 12yo thing is a whole other story. Her sister seems well brought up, though. Confusing.

    It was also said her mother couldn't speak to the media although she was seated alongside the sister. Was she was too upset or another reason?

    OMG. I knew this case was tragic when I posted the thread ... but I had no idea how bad it was.
    Her boyfriend was 40??? And he'd been dating her since she was 12???? And he had "no idea" she was prostituting???? I'm calling ******** on him.
    I don't believe he was involved in her death ... I believe that was the 60 yr old monster (who should never have been let out of jail obviously). But the whole thing is so messed up. A 12yr old girl dating a 30+ yr old man, at the age of 16 is pregnant to the now 40 yr old man, and selling herself (either of her own free will or at his instigation), ends up dead because of another sick freak.
    This whole thing makes me feel so angry.

    That's not a boyfriend, that's an abuser .. how did her family not demand that she be taken into care to keep him from her and have the police press charges against him? WTF on this whole sad story, the poor child was obviously let down by the people who should have been looking after her.
    You don't get a medal for switching alliances just before the result, as it becomes apparent the other team is set to win.

    Yeah, it's hard for me to muster the usual sympathy for those who knew her, commenting on this after the fact. What the actual heck.
