    I was not a member here at the time so I do not know if the following theory was explored. I recall that close in time to the girl's murders Skyla's brother had been incarcerated and was set to testify against others. I vaguely recall his sentence was less than the others involved. Is it possible Skyla/Taylor's murder could have been retaliation or a warning/message to Skyla's brother? I do not recall his name, so I have not been able to find the links but info about his trial was out in the media. I just wondered if this may be an interesting angle for the film crew to explore. Thoughts?

    ETA: Found the information:

    Edward Gordon- Skyla’s brother-

    Aaron Graham pleaded guilty to first-degree murder Friday morning, according to media in the Pittsburg, Kan., area.
    A Cherokee County jury convicted Samuel Becker in January 2008 on 11 charges; he was sentenced in March to life in prison, plus 68 months, with no chance of parole for 25 years. Also in March, another defendant, Edward Gordon, pleaded no-contest to second-degree murder and agreed to testify against Graham. Gordon hasn’t been sentenced yet.

    Edward Gordon, 20, of Baxter Springs, was found guilty of second-degree murder after pleading “no contest” to the charge as part of a plea agreement. The agreement calls for a 10-year prison sentence.

    I was able to talk the producers into letting me respond here. They don't want to create any issues or problems. I do know that the producers were a little shocked when they found that the post for Kickstarter was taken down.

    The entire 11 and 13 production team thought that it would be a great idea to post the link here since there seems to be an overwhelming response to help find the people that did this to Taylor and Skyla.

    Just to launch a film can cost thousands of dollars and while the main producer is currently funding this, he thought if people wanted to contribute that would be a good thing and wanted to provide an avenue for this. The team also thought that people might want to help and be part of the filmmaking process. Right now the plan is to have this film set up as a non-profit so people can get a tax credit for donations and that some of the proceeds can somehow memorialize the girls.

    Here's the deal, it doesn't have to be set up this way and the producers can make the film on their own but thought it might be nice to give back to the community so-to-speak. The producers are good people and didn't want to have any "negativity" towards the film, the production or for people to think they're just out to make money on this.

    I can tell you that's not the case, they have their reasons for making this film. In my opinion, at least they are keeping this case alive and doing something that can potentially help find who did this. That's it for now.

    I was waiting for this bit of information. They're looking for money, folks.

    I figured that out with my first visit to the Kickstarter website.

    Aren't people who put money into films called "backers" and don't they get a piece of the action? Isn't that the whole point of people backing a film......in the hopes that they will get in on a "hit" and make money on their investment?

    sounds like they just want to make a buck too, let the main producer fund this, a producer is already aware of the cost of a documentary or movie. if he is capable of funding it let him fund it. now this whole thing sounds like a get rich scam and to top things off trying to get rich off of the girls murder. shame on you. of course we all were willing to help until the red flags came up. their hearts aren't in the right place it's being replaced by dollar signs. just my opinion.
