    I think she did it. I also think she was probably abused the same way at some time.

    I once swallowed a cough drop by accident and my throat was sore for a week! I'm surprised she could even talk at the arraignment!

    Incredible. When we first heard of the possibility she swallowed razor blades, I really thought it was ridiculous. Wow...guess I was wrong. The suicide attempt doesn't surprise me, but the sharp blade swallowing thing is over the top.

    With the drugs mentioned, the suicide attempt, and other things...sure sounds like an Insanity Plea is coming without a doubt. GRRRR!

    I think she is insane. I also think she was sexually abused herself.

    That's my opinion also. She wrote the note during sixth grade that she wanted to die. Sure, some kids have depression because of chemical imbalance but some also have depression from abuse. How many people, especially women, would think of raping a little girl with a foreigh object unless this had happened to them some time during their life?

    I do think she's mentally ill. If that's going to be her defense she may be one of the few that use it rightfully. Going off her meds could have made her do something like this, that her family would think was out of character. I don't excuse her for what she did, nor do I not want her to be punished. I just think that it gives a reason for why she did what she did. Once she had a moment of sanity she felt bad for what she had done and wanted to punish herself or end her life. I think she used the xacto knife blades because she thought it would be painful and she wanted to suffer just like Sandra probably did.

    Maybe that's why she was "crying" ?

    I agree. I think this woman has been a walking wounded for a long time, holding in a lot of pain. I agree she will have to pay for what she has done. I do believe she is insane.

    I wonder what "freakish thing" ? Like raping a little girl with a foreign object--does that sound like a freak accident, grandma Lawless?
    I think the whole family is completely in denial. If Melissa had priors, the family HAD to have known she was deeply troubled.

    Psychotropic medication can sometimes cause a person to lash out, but I wouldn't think it would cause a person to plan a murder. JMO

    Wonder what the experts have to say about: cutting yourself internally.

    She knew right from wrong at the time she kidnapped, raped, and murdered Sandra. She made choices in the premeditation, choices during the act, and used rational thought to cover the crimes by placing Sandra in the bag then the pond. She lied to the police which show she knew what she had done was wrong. They can say the lies to the media were after her suicide attempt, but everything done before says she was sane enough at the time of the murder to face the DP, imo.
