    LA - Kaitlin Aydell, 13, French Settlement, 1 Feb 2007

    FRENCH SETTLEMENT — Friends, neighbors and relatives waited with worried faces Friday as police and sheriff’s deputies searched the mobile home of a man held in connection with seventh-grader Kaitlin M. Aydell’s disappearance. The mobile home is situated behind her house.

    The 13-year-old French Settlement High School student was last seen Thursday about 3 p.m. leaving a school bus for home.

    Her disappearance shocked residents of French Settlement, a tight-knit southern Livingston Parish bayou community where these kind of things aren’t supposed to happen, Kaitlin’s family and friends and law enforcement officials said

    Kaitlin Aydell age 13


    the video says, Her cousin-in-law has been arrested for outright lying to the police as to his where abouts, that he was working at the time, and about scratches on his face. link
    Mark Sterling Lewis, 39, was arrested early Friday on one count of obstruction of justice for giving false information to investigators. For the past two years, he has been Kaitlin’s relative by marriage.

    Lewis “was not truthful with investigators when asked pertinent questions” to help find the girl, the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office said.

    Lewis was convicted of kidnapping and other charges involving the abduction of a woman in September 1995 and served prison time.
    doesn't sound good at all!

    I originally posted that ***********.net article at my True Crime Blog, too.

    This case is starting to remind me of the Carlie Brucia case, what with it being Super Bowl weekend, too.

    I've sent an e-mail to my press contacts and other crime-bloggers, and posted a bulletin on MySpace.

    Chances are, this girl is in the area. Sadly, the chances are she's not alive. But I'm really bothered by this Mark Lewis's piddling 2 years in jail, and think people should know about that as well.

    He held a screwdriver to a woman's throat, tried to abduct her. After setting up a situation where he "helped" the woman, because I'm certain he punctured the tire of the woman he tried to kidnap in 1995. Two years seems pretty weak.

    Steve, you can't be surprised, afterall this is Louisiana. Think Derrick Todd Lee and all of his assaults but he was still on the street to commit at least 6 murders and rapes. I don't have the number of years he got but relative to his ongoing crimes it was piddling.

    I agree. They need to be searching the marshy area around the home. If he abducted her after school it wasn't dark yet so transporting her in his car on the main streets would be risky. Plenty of rural, marshy areas in Livingston Parish to look for a body. With that said, they need to organize search parties ASAP to preserve any evidence.

    ST. AMANT — Ascension Parish Sheriff Jeff Wiley said the body found Saturday off La. 936 at St. Amant is that of a young white girl.

    Livingston Parish sheriff’s investigators searching for a 13-year-old French Settlement girl missing since Thursday afternoon arrived at the location in Ascension Parish Saturday evening to examine the body.

    Wiley said that two men who had volunteered to help search for 13-year-old Kaitlin Aydell of French Settlement noticed some disturbed leaves and vegetation in a small bayou. On closer inspection, they found the body, the sheriff said.

    This just rips me. I would offer this advise to reporters in the area....go to the sex offender list and see how many of these pervs on in La. then put this in your newspapers. In New Iberia, I located over 400 and this is a town of 25,000. This is where my grandchildren are and I worry constantly. You have a responsibility to educate and this falls on your shoulders.

    People there are not listening to CNN or Fox they are listening to local news and reading local newspapers.

    Melissa who was formerly with the Advocate was the only reporter who had a clue. Now, I believe she is with an LSU newspaper. She had guts to open so can some of you other reporters follow in her footsteps?
