bumping up for Rowan
Any news on the trial? I hope those monsters rot!!
I haven't heard anything. Seems it takes at least a year before they ever get to trial. I hope they both rot in hell for what they did to this poor little girl though.
I dare not truly ask because I know the answer....
This is somewhat old news, but I found it to be shocking, nonetheless. The officer that found Rowan's body has been charged with sexually abusing a minor. Sad, sad, sad...and I live in this state. SHEESH!

Oh, Swannie, that's awful. One would think that the trauma of finding Rowan's body ONE MONTH EARLIER would be enough to keep him away from doing something like this.
What the heck is going on in this world?
It said the area where Rowan was found had been searched previously, yet he drove right to the spot, pointed his flashlight, and said "This looks like a good spot to dump a body". A lot of times, guilty people/liars inadvertantly reveal clues and think they can outwit LE (or his superiors in this case). When I heard he drove straight to the body dump site, that was the first thing that came to my mind, but nothing else was said about it, and after all, he is a "good ole boy in blue"-haha.
One more thing that bothers me is that thy say that the Stepdad was too large to haul that baby back and forth due to his size- Maybe he had help? I dont know how long these articles really are, or if the paper is jsut finding out about them, but I hope The DA takes a good, hard look at these momsters!!
Thank you for your post- I found a few more details at a linked post to yours, so I will post it here for others-
May they all burn in hell. RIP little Rowen....

And I hope the machine or the "juice" malfunctions - so it hurts real bad when they have him on the table!
I hope the machines malfunction and the juice is given at 10 times the normal dosages, make it long and painful, well deserved. The sick pr*ck.
RIP Sweet Rowan - , your death will not be in vain. Your name will live on and on forever in our hearts dear child.
I grew up in Springfield, MO. My Uncle lives in Joplin which is pretty close to Stella. I can't even stand to look at that blob of a man. He makes me sick. I hesitate to even imagine what Rowan's living life was like. When she was found my mom (who lives in Springfield) and I talked about how it was pretty fishy the way the cop found Rowan's body. People like this, litte Nixmary's Brown and Baby Grace's parents; I cannot think of suffering bad enough for what they have done.

Just wanted to share some info with you all who fell in love and care about precious Rowan. I was over at DD, and they had an update on the case as of yesterday:
Newton County, MO is a busy place lately. On June 17, a new motion was filed for a second public defender for Chris Collings, who is accused of murder in the Rowan Ford case. It appears that now both Chris Collings and David Spears have two attorneys each. This is important information because in Missouri, you need two attorneys for the defense in order to try a death penalty case. The state is seeking the death penalty against Collings and Spears for the rape and murder of Spearsí stepdaughter Rowan Ford, who as most of us know was brutally killed last November when she was just nine years old.
Now both Collings and Spears are scheduled for court hearings on July 22, presumably with all their various counsel present. Now maybe we can get this show on the road and Missouri can rid itself of these two blights on humanity sooner rather than later.
Thank God they have the DP in MO. Its a shame how long it takes these idiots to get there, but hopefully I will be around in the next 20-30 yrs when they announce on CNN that they have an execution in MO. I WILL be waiting
I'll be right here waiting with you Chicogirl !! Can't think of 2 men who deserve it more right now !!!
Once everything is set the defense will start delaying like they always do. I swear..they do it without a doubt in every case. BUT...in the end those two creeps will get what they deserve. It may take 20 years but it will happen eventially. If they don't get the death penalty but LWOP instead their life in prison won't be an easy on. Those cons hate baby killers.
My kids brought this up the other day, and it seems so appropriate for this case- They asked me "Mom, Why can't bad guys like rapers (sic) and killers have the same thing done to them that they did to the person they hurt?" I chuckled to myself for a minute and explained as much as could be told to an 8 yr old- Wouldn't it be nice in some cases? We can always dream, can't we??? lol
Hi, I hope this post finds everyone in good spirits.
Just wanted to post the latest updates regarding Rowan's case.
Apparently, a judge has agreed to a change of venue for David Spears, Rowan Ford's then step-father who has confessed to both raping and murdering his 9 year old step-daughter. Madness, I say!
More at the links:
The judge moved the Spears case to Waynesville on a COV. I don't understand why the defense didn't argue for a more distant courtroom. Waynesville, is still very close to Barry County, and is within the television viewing and radio listening areas of Southwest Missouri. Collings COV hearing will be held soon, and granted.
I think there will be some sort of plea deal in the case. Put them both in the general population of a prison; then I guarantee you, we won't have to wait 10 years on an appeal in the case!!!
Poor little Rowan....she didn't even have a chance from the start!
Thanks for the update-I hope there is a deal in a way...I want these guys serving hard time in the general population...
I feel the same way also!! That would be a dream of a lifetime
Does anyone know if they make a deal, would it just be taking the DP off the table, but still giving these idiots LWOP? I would hope that they would not get a short sentence if they plea- In fact, Im not surprised at all about the plea- Lets just hope that thay have tough justice in MO.
God Bless you Rowan, I still keep you in my prayers babygirl
With all this focus on looking for Caylee, I would like to remember sweet Rowan and say a prayer for her-
Her monsters will be on trial soon- Hopefully LE has ALL of their ducks in a row . For some reason, I have my doubts about the deputy who found her- IIRC, there was an article about him.
If anyone remembers, please let remind me- My brain is fried.
I hate the fact that they are even giving these @ssholes a plea deal...I'm all for the death penalty - BRING IT ON!
This little angel suffered horribly at the hands of these two and what will they get? LWOP? I'm sorry, I have a few close friends that work in the prison system (one in MO actually - who works with death row inmates) and he said that REAL prison is much different than what is depicted on TV. These guys still get decent meals and TV time and outside 'exercise' time. He said the state of MO spent about $10 million to update the basketball courts and exercise yards for these 'criminals'. Ah, tax dollars hard at work...
In cases like these I think it should be an automatic death penalty - do not pass go - do not collect $200....MOO!
This case still to this day brings tears to my eyes and great pain to my heart. If I was Rowan's mom, no way, no how would I still be alive on this earth.
Just so you know - Missouri State prisons no longer operate with a segragated death row. All death row prisoners serve their time in a general population. Missouri eliminated death row operations around 2001.
There will be no plea deals and both will be tried as DP cases.
