    Beyond that, it is difficult not to think on these two facts and wonder if Rowan fit into any of this. I mean, was this the only sinkhole in town? On top of that, it will be interesting to see how the sexual assault charge plays out. JMO.
    I did a search on this deputy and found no conviction. He is not registered as a sex offender in Missouri either. There is a Jacob Boles who is town marshall for Noel, Mo. Does anyone know what happened in his case?

    Nevermind. He was found innocent:

    Ex-deputy acquitted of statutory sodomy Friday Mar 20, 2009 A McDonald County jury on Thursday found a former sheriff's deputy innocent of sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl. Jurors deliberated three hours Thursday before acquitting Jacob Boles, 28, of sec..

    Rowan's mother will have to live with the price she paid for her choices-please God it was the wake-up call she needed. It is infinitely unfair that Rowan was murdered....it is infinitely unfair that there were few who would stand up for a child of incredible spirit-for the rest of my life when I read Lovely Bones I will think of Rowan-freed from the pain of her life finally. There is a lesson here for us as well-look twice on that awkward dirty child who is in your child's class room. Reach out to have play dates, encourage your child to accept and show kindness to them. Because you never know.

    I agree with you believe09, except that Susie, the victim in the Lovely Bones, was not a dirty, needy child from a broken home where her mother was allowing sick men to be alone with her for hours on end, day after day. Rowan's mother did allow that and she should have been a lot more protective of her child. She failed to put her daughter first and she will have to pay for it for the rest of her pathetic, miserable life - as will so many mothers these days. I do wish she had to pay that price behind bars. Her and all the rest of them.

    While we all do bear a responsibility to be vigilent about the children in all parts of our lives, the primary caregivers must be held accountable for the children in their HOMES. Women like Rowan's mother should be punished for being so self-absorbed and lacking in their maternal skills. I'm so tired of hearing of innocent babies being abused and killed by loser POS's who have no business being around children.

    Sorry - just MHO.

    Lawyers For Men Accused Of Rowan Ford's Murder Allege Violation Of Attorney/Client Pr

    The death penalty trial for the stepfather of Rowan Ford and his friend Christopher Collings who were charged with the little girls rape and murder could be postponed as a judge decides how to proceed with a potential violation of attorney/client privilege.

    Lawyers for David Spears and Christopher Collings say that their confidential conversations with their clients inside the Barry County jail were recorded. They also allege that conversations between the men and family members were recorded too.

    Public defenders say they believe their clients right to a fair trial may have been violated.

    I don't think this will hold up in court - maybe the recording of the attny mtgs, but not the family meetings. There is no right to privacy in jail/prison. The Supreme Court has said so on more than one occasion.

    I agree. The family and friends conversations aren't private. However, I worry about the atty/client privilege.

    Will this little girl ever get to rest in peace?
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    The hearing is part of the pre-trial legal wrangling between defense attorneys and prosecutors. Circuit Judge Tracy Storie is hearing arguments for and against motions concerning evidence. Spears is scheduled for trial in July.

    This case turned me inside out when it happened-it is clear the defense tactic is to draw this out as long as possible to soften the memory of this poor baby.

    Hope they sleep well at night.

    yikes I have just reread my post above on this page

    re the lice I sound like a snob and sorry did not want to appear that way at all...

    just last night I had to do a treatment on my five year old sons "nit" problem so I understand how common they are and that having lice doesnt automatically mean she was a dirty girl....so sorry everyone I hope I didnt offend anyone whose kids have had lice.......

    however what I was getting at but did not come across right...was WHERE the lice was supposedly found on her.......that to me was so sad for a little girl...

    Expert: Stepfather falsely confessed in Rowan Ford murder
    21 June 2010 / Joplin Globe
    by Jeff Lehr

    WAYNESVILLE, Mo. — Detective Brian Martin interviewed David W. Spears a day after Spears reportedly confessed to another investigator that he had participated in the rape and murder of Rowan Ford.

    Martin, a Barry County sheriff’s investigator, wanted to know firsthand from the 9-year-old girl’s stepfather: Did he kill her?

    “I can’t say that I didn’t,” Spears told Martin, according to a transcript of the interview that was presented at a hearing Monday in Pulaski County Circuit Court in Waynesville.

    Martin pressed him to be more clear.

    “Any way that you look at it, I didn’t save her,” Spears told him. “I might as well have (killed her).”
    ---
    Richard Leo, a law professor at the University of San Francisco and an expert on police interrogations and the obtaining of false confessions, told the court that he interviewed Spears one year ago and reviewed case documents. He said he believes that Spears falsely confessed to [Chief Deputy Chris] Jennings after about a week of accusatory interrogations during which investigators used a number of coercive techniques that various studies associate with the obtaining of false confessions.

    Leo said he thinks Spears gradually came to internalize a belief that he must have committed the crime even though he had no memory of it, and this produced a false confession. Leo told the court that the interview with Martin one day later shows that Spears still had no memory of committing the rape and murder of the girl, just as he had maintained all along under questioning before the reported confession.
    ---
    There is no trace evidence of the girl’s body having been inside the Chevrolet Suburban that Spears purportedly drove to [co-defendant Chris L.] Collings’ home, she said. That is significant because in his confession, Spears reportedly told Jennings that the men hauled the girl’s body in the Suburban to dispose of her down a sinkhole in McDonald County. On the other hand, [Spears' attorney Cynthia] Dryden said, there is trace evidence of Rowan having been in Collings’ pickup truck.
    ---
    Dryden told the court that only a small concluding portion of Jennings’ interrogation of Spears on Nov. 9, 2007, was taped. She said the portion during which he purportedly confessed to certain details of the crime was not recorded. Nor were several other interrogations of him by investigators in the days leading up to his confession, she said.
