    I don't understand why the media continues to use her name and images of her. She's a victim and a minor and, afaik, she has not spoken to the press. In most other cases they would have redacted her name and just reported her as the 15 year old victim.

    I thought about that and did message one of the local stations (MN) that have been covering this case. I'll let you know what they say when/if they respond.


    From KSTP Channel 5:
    "Hi xxxx, upon learning of the sexual assault, we stopped naming the victim. That is a matter of our policy, however it is difficult to fully remove some past items online. Thank you for messaging us about this."

    JB gave an interview to fox9 in the twin cities today. I'm sure you can find it on their website. Fyi.

    JB and her mother want to share the teen's story of survival and thank a community that never gave up bringing her home alive.

    "I think she's a warrior,” said Sarah Block, J’s mother. "She's probably the strongest person I have ever known."

    I think she's a warrior too. So glad she's safe and home. Prayers for her healing.

    JB has provided details of her harrowing 29 days in captivity. She is so lucky to be alive. Unbelievable!

    Powers, a friend of Barker’s, showed up at the home about a week after the girl’s kidnapping. Barker told him not to enter his bedroom while he staying at the house, Fox 9 reported. But one day, he decided to take a peek, and found the girl in the closet. He never freed her or contacted police.

    The girl told police Powers forced her to snort a line of “white powder,” the AP reported, citing a criminal complaint.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.ddb24cbf3ed8

    According to investigators, Barker, who suffers from cerebral palsy, admitted he was on methamphetamine and booze.

    J, now home, is starting to heal from the experience.

    "Sometimes [I feel] good,” said J. “Sometimes not great. Like sometimes, I have problems sleeping because I close my eyes and I see their faces. I'm scared to sleep because I might have bad nightmares."

    http://www.fox9.com/news/jasmine-blo...-daring-escape

    SO one of the linked articles stated Baker is the father of one of J's friends. I can't even imagine what is going on in that poor kid's mind right now. And Powers? WTH? You find some girl being held against her will in your meth buddy's closet and you just join in the abuse and abduction? This could so easily have ended with her dead (recalling Holly Bobo case)

    JB is indeed a warrior!

    I can't even believe this thread isn't longer...I just heard of this. This is absolutely insane. I am so glad she is alive and that three arrests have been made.

    So happy for the positive outcome in this case (as positive as it could be under the circumstances) and the generosity and kindness shown by the man who gave her the reward money.
    Any man's death diminishes me,
    Because I am involved in mankind,
    Therefore, send not to know, for whom the bell tolls;
    It tolls for thee.
