Your first sentence I understand and concur. Your second sentence I'm not sure how you came to this conclusion?

I haven't had any contact with her since then. Although I think about her very often. She is really one of the very few people I would call a best friend in my entire life.

It is completely shocking.
I suspected it might be something like this...let me tell you my theory...she is on some type of psychotropic meds which could be responsible if she did do something to this child. Every case Ive studied where the mother commits some horrible act on multiple childrenor one one child seems to be because of the meds the doctors have her on. I just got off the phone with my best friend and told her the same thing!!! that i bet she was on some type of medications that were not right for her my oppinion only, emma welcome to the board and is there any way you can find out if she was on meds??? thanks so much for giving us your personal input!!!

Oh, emmabella, I am so sorry for how bad this horrible case has to hurt you too! From what you have already shared, however, I wonder if we will ever know the answer to "why" in this case. Mental illness does not fit into any category that can be understood by sane people.

As I was making final preperations for my kids' Easter, I was thinking about Melissa's daughter. How sad for her on a day that is supposed to be fun and family. (Sad for Sandra of course also)

I have often thought about Sandra missing Easter and how horrible it is going to be for her family. You are correct Laini, in thinking about how horrible tomorrow is going to be for Melissa's little girl too! This is just a nightmare that I wish all of us could wake up from.

Oh dear, as I was doing mine, I thought only about Sandra not about MH's daughter. You are a very good, and thoughtful person.

me too:-( I feel so bad for her family, she is with god now so Im sure she is in loving arms...

I do feel that medications are responsible for this, Im a strong advocate of NOT medicating for many psychiatric problems, my theory is that unless the patient is totally dysfunctional, do not medicate. Look at all the previous cases where people were on these drugs and what they did, a good link and book to read about this is linked below... (im sure you will all change your mind and agree with me once you read this book) that meds cause madness, murder and violent behaviors, suicide etc etc (not all the time but in many cases).

Thanks Ladybug, and Emmabella, it is great to have you here. We are all in a state of shock over this.

I did read she gave them details of the murder itself. I'm going to have to start taking notes as we are getting so many links!

too off topic for here but I have a lot of experience in what you're alluding to with respect to an over-medicated society....

Just a shocking horrible end. I can't get my mind wrapped around the fact that a woman, a MOTHER did this to a child in the neighbourhood.

I'm wondering if anyone in her family tried to get her a lawyer. She was read her rights twice and could have spoken then for a free lawyer {I think}.

The family might not have the funds for a private attny in Tracy, but 99% of the population would be screaming for a lawyer after 4.5 hours of questioning!

So odd, as she was giving all this info to the press to explain how she wasn't involved and yet now does nothing to help save herself from being interrogated like that.

Where were her parents? We know nothing about them. I know she is 28, but still .. . . .

PS: is her dad Brian? I saw something about him when I googled if it was the right guy.

Good Night Reannan, Happy Easter to you.

As JBR reminded us, isn't it amazing how Eastertime has worked it's miracle for victims of needless murder. Melissa was arrested on Good Friday and I think Laci washed up on Good Friday as well. xxox

Haunting.
Dear Emmabella,

Thank you so much for coming on Websleuths. I know I speak for everyone when I say I really appreciate your honesty.

You are providing a look into Melissa's mind and life. Something that, until now, we have been guessing about.

Take care and if you need anything please email me.

Was Melissa overly possessive or jealous of your friendship? I have a theory that she might have thought Sandra was slighting her daughter by having other little friends or have been a bad influence. Someone on the other thread whose roommate knew her said that she was annoyingly relgious back then.

Hang on....do I understand that what's being said here is....Sandra's family had knowledge of Huckaby's conduct with the previous 7 year old at the park?

Hi, Before I hit the hay I wanted to say I saw Melissa's MySpace page before it went to private. I was literally amazed.

She had posted many photos of FWillliams and Sinclair there. And pics of Sandra too. So odd, as she knew on the 4th, the last day she logged in, that these 2 'friends' of hers were under the microscope of the TPD!

Can someone clarify for me whether Sandra was the victim that was drugged at the park/pool by Melissa earlier. I read that somewhere but I figured that would have come out, after all they alerted to a man kissing her so I think they would have brought that up.

Just finished catching up with this thread... I just can't believe this!

As to the bolded portion of your post, if you are still here... did you notice any comments with the pictures? Were the pictures of her with FW, Sinclair or Sandra?
