    MO - Rowan Ford, 9, raped & murdered, Stella, 3 Nov 2007

    FFS, here we go again...

    STELLA, Mo. -- Investigators suspect foul play was involved in the disappearance of a 9-year-old girl from her southwest Missouri home late Friday or early Saturday.
    Rowan Ford, of Stella, was getting ready for bed around 8:30 p.m. Friday when her mother, Colleen Spears, left for work at a nearby Wal-Mart, authorities said.
    The girl's stepfather, David Spears, told investigators that she was asleep when he looked in on her before going out with friends around 10:45 p.m., said Newton County Sheriff Ken Copeland.

    "Copeland said the stepfather and two of his male friends were with the girl at the home until they decided to go out together about 10:45 p.m. The stepfather told investigators that he looked in on the girl in her bedroom before leaving, and she was asleep."

    I have a really bad feeling about this......

    "The sheriff said David Spears later told investigators that he left home a second time during the night Rowan disappeared.

    Spears called his mother sometime after 1 a.m. Saturday and asked to use her vehicle, Copeland said. She took it to him around 1:30 a.m., then stayed at his house while Spears used her vehicle for about 5 1/2 hours, the sheriff said.

    Copeland declined to say what Spears told investigators he was doing with the vehicle."


    I trust that he is currently being interrogated....better be!!

    Look at that, the story changes during the second round of questioning. I have a pretty good idea of what he needed a vehicle for for 5 1/2 hours. I sure hope they have that vehicle in custody right now.

    I am very curious what he told his mother he needed the car for and what he told police he used it for. If his mother stayed at the house for 5 1/2 hours (so until at least 7:00am) she had to of known the child wasn't there.

    How sad. Hate to say it, but pretty sure this will not have a happy ending.

    I see driving without a license, DWI, forced child support and a garnishment for a hospital bill.

    Not a stranger to the courts

    LE needs to find the "friends" also.

    That link just sent me to the main page. I tried doing a search but just found stuff for fines, etc. My question:
    how on earth was the Mom gone working at walmart for over 12 hours? I work at walmart and NO ONE works a 12 hour shift here.
    You won't cry for my absence, I know -
    You forgot me long ago. Am I that unimportant...?
    Am I so insignificant...? Isn't something missing?
    Isn't someone missing me?

    There are many little tabs on the page to click for more details (I fixed the link to go to search page).

    Ex-wife is a winner too, IMO.

    Off to check on current wife (Rowans mom).

    I'm betting the mother's husband sexually abused the little girl, killed her and then hid her body. grrrrrrrrrrr

    I am sick of hearing about this cases.
