    I guess I just don't understand the amber alert thing. Why wouldn't they issue a amber alert, regardless of what the circumstances may be....

    An amber alert if for when there is evidence of abduction, and when there is a description of the perp and the vehicle. None of those things were available here.
    Just the facts, Ma'am.

    So you have to have a description of the perp and a vehicle. What if someone took your baby while you were sleeping??? Or someone took your baby while he/she was walking home from school or a friends house, then do they wait that 24hrs before calling it, by then it's always too late...... Why do they have to wait so long to call a amber alert even if the authorities think their is suspicion because of the family behavior or the story just seems fishy.

    Most often, an Amber Alert is not called just because of a kidnapping. They need to have information that would help the public find the child. Each state has their own criteria for the Amber Alert, and in some states, it includes a description of the vehicle. In California it is:
    Criteria for activating an AMBER ALERT

    Law enforcement agencies ensure these conditions are met before activating an AMBER ALERT:

    The investigating law enforcement agency confirms an abduction has occurred.
    The victim is 17 years of age or younger, or has a proven mental or physical disability.
    The victim is in imminent danger of serious injury or death.
    There is information available that, if provided to the public, could assist in the child's safe recovery.

    Sad to say, if all they have is a picture of a child, and the child is reported missing with no other information, an Amber Alert would not be considered useful. It was originally started because the case of Amber Hagerman had a neighbor witness her abduction (by being thrown into a pickup truck) and there was no way to let people know to look for this truck. (they couldn't have seen the little girl, but they could see the truck)
    Just the facts, Ma'am.

    The boyfriend of the Cassandra Hodges' mother may face the death penalty in connection with the little girl's death.
    Erik Guillermo was arraigned in a Klamath County court by video on Thursday.

    He pleaded not guilty to manslaughter and murder charges.

    Trial set for 2007 for man accused of killing girl

    The aggravated murder trial of a man accused of killing a 4-year-old girl has been set for 2007.

    Erik Guillermo, 38, is charged with the June 2004 death of Cassandra Hodges, the daughter of his girlfriend.

    Klamath County District Attorney Ed Caleb has said he plans to seek the death penalty when the trial begins on Jan. 9, 2007.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Why in the world would it take this long to take this killer to trial? I don't get it. I think a year is a long time to wait but good grief this is really pushing it.

    Think about this little girl's family and what this wait will do to them. They can't even begin to move ahead with their lives until this trial is over and this killer is put away for ever. It is like a wound just beginning to heal and then ripped open again. My heart sure goes out to them.
