    mmmbrownies, sorry that I assumed you were a woman.
    I love men and brownies...just not in that order.
    I'm going to post some of the confirmed facts on this thread.

    Meghan Landowski 16, a sophomore at Woodrow Wilson HS, was found murdered in her home in Portsmouth Va. on April 10, 2008. Portsmouth schools were closed early that day.

    Meghan's friends said she was acting nervous, skiddish, odd on that day. She'd wanted a friend to come home with her....her friend was busy.

    Meghan borrowed some mac and cheese from a neighbor.

    Meghan was found by her step father Christopher Shortt.

    Police are calling Meghan’s case a homicide, and as of late last week officials had not released a cause of death.
    Potter assured mourners that authorities are “putting everything that they have into this investigation” and “that justice will be done.”
    “Whoever committed this crime should be shaking in their shoes and looking over their shoulder,” he said

    Naval investigators want to go through the records at MySpace to see Meghan’s private messages and the like.
    NCIS is involved because a Navy man is considered a person of interest.

    Just a reminder to keep the discussion on the case and not each other. Use the "report bad post" button to let a moderator know that a post may be over the line, preferably before ya'll decide to jump in and run this train off the track. sheesh

    From the first thread:
    http://www.wvec.com/news/topstories/....54530a23.html
    SNIP
    Around 4:00 p.m. Thursday, Meghan Landowski's step-father came home to find her body in their home on Roberts Court W. Her friends at Woodrow Wilson High School are working to cope with the loss, but also say the teen was not her bubbly self hours before her death.
    "She was just shaky and asking people to go home with her or to go home with them," said friend Kristin Clary.

    Here's what I want to know, a 16 year old girl was brutally murdered in her home on May 10, 2008.
    Why hasn't the DNA come back yet?

    Blink,

    Thank you. I have the utmost respect for you and am glad you're here on Meghan's thread with us.

    From the beginning, when they said the Navy guy was just a person of interest I thought that he had hired someone to kill Meghan. If it was another person in the military then they could be deployed now. Maybe they're waiting until this person gets back to base.

    The only thing that would make me think the Navy guy didn't hire anyone is the brutality of how Meghan was killed. It says to me that whoever did this was very angry with her.

    That's my question too. Nice job bringing everything over from thread 1, Thanks.

    My apologies, I saw him attacking a poster and I take this stuff way too personally as it is. Thanks for the reminder and I promise to step away from the keyboard before my next fit

    I wonder if the Navy guy has a teenage son that lost it. He could have been upset about Meghan's testifying against his dad. I think she knew who ever it was and was scarred of them because it was reported she was nervous and wanted her friend to come home with her. I wonder how the friend is holding up. It most likely have been two dead if she had went home with Meghan, but the what if questions will haunt her for life. The only other possibilities I can think of are an angry ex-boyfriend or a internet hookup that went bad. Some of those guys that show up for the dateline stings have knives and such. I don't feel the internet hookup is as likely because she wanted her friend to come home with her.

    Spazkat, I wasn't sure how to post this since it came from the first thread. CAgirlatheart posted this (she is a friend of the family):

    "The part about Meghan being 'afraid and shaky' as reported by her friends is untrue. She was her usual self when she went to the neighbors house after getting home from school, and called her mom to talk to her about her day. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary."

    I remember reading something that referred to a young man that the media was interviewing where they called him "the supposed boyfriend" or something like that. I'll go back and look for the link. If it was a jilted teenager that could explain the anger.

    That's good for the friend, I guess. I know something like that would haunt me for life. My only question would be why would the friends report it if it was untrue? I wonder if the friend of the family is going on what mom said happened when she taked to Meghan. Maybe she seemed fine to her mom but not to her friends.

    CAgirlatheart seemed to think it was just teenage girls looking for their fifteen minutes of fame. You know how dramatic they can be.

    I wonder if Meghan confided in them that she was scared but didn't her mother because she didn't want to worry her?

    We'll probably never know.
