    Sure isn't much to continue here. Grumble, grumble. I just can't even imagine what her family is going through.

    How does one person murder another person and leave no evidence behind uless they are a pro and even pro's get caught! I wonder how good that LE is about collecting forenic evidence?

    Its WV. The State Troopers out here have a very bad reputation. I recently had to rip them a new one; on tape in public had to actually file a complaint. It really boiled down to lack of training which I'm sure the "newbie" will get. My parting words as I left the station? Just find Leah and prosecute who murdered her, fgs.
    Because we are all waiting for justice for her. Mark my words, from that end of the state to this; they know that online they are known as the keystone cops. Sad, but I do have to agree. I'd like to say something better or nice, but my dealings with them, has been an eye opener and I'm not surprised that nothing has happened in her case. I'm not sure they could prosecute unless they had all the evidence from a to z in front of them. They just cannot operate or function cohesively as a unit. Or lets say an intelligent unit. I have one alert set up and I get emails about her fund once in awhile or about the grant in her name or thngs like that. I get nothing about any active case. I think it's a cold case. No one could even look me in the eye when I lambasted them about finding Leahs killer. I couldnt help it; it was my parting remark. "Just find her, Damn it." I slept better that night. just that night tho.

    I totally feel your frustration, chronictonic. It's a shame and scary that a KILLER is still out there. That same person could do it again because they've already done it once. What's to keep it from happening again?

    I'm not surprised that LE doesn't have a clue. Why in the world don't they call in for help! This murder needs to be solved. I wonder if they even checked for fingerprints on her skin. Was she raped or did they ever say?

    Marshall University student Leah Hickman was killed Dec. 14, 2007, the last day of classes before winter break. The cause of death was listed as strangulation.
    Hickman's body, which was stuffed into a crawl space beneath her apartment in Huntington, was not found until a week after she was last seen. Police have made no arrests in the case.

    I thought it would be resolved by now too. It doesn't seem to be that hard of a case to me. Makes me wonder just how hard LE has worked to find the killer. I certainly hope it isn't on the back burner now.
