    GUILTY VA - Tina Smith, 41, slain, 12yo daughter abducted, Salem, 2 Dec 2010 - #8

    I think the "abduction with intent to defile" means "with the intention of having sex with her" which would be subsection (ii). I don't think he planned to prostitute her to other men which would be subsection (III). There is (or was) a federal statute that folks used to quote as being...

    At 11:35 am: The grand jury is meeting at this hour regarding the abduction of 12 year old Brittany Smith. Her accuser Jeffrey Easley is facing a more serious charge. Easley is charged with kidnapping Brittany Smith and taking her San Francisco back in December, shortly after her mother was...

    I'm trying to get the straight skinny on this 'protective order' but I think it had to do with a young girl (maybe BMS...that's what I'm trying to clarify) making allegations that Mr. Smith had attempted to touch her inappropriately. People I know who know him well say there's no way he would...

    Court testimony shows that on December 6 Smith was found bound with cords and beaten to death in her upstairs bedroom. http://www.wset.com/Global/story.asp?S=13989936

    I'm again not sure I understand what you're trying to say. Are you saying that perhaps Tina died of natural causes or committed suicide? That JSE and BMS just found her dead, panicked and ran? That this is all an unfortunate set of coincidences and bad choices? Why, then, would LE and...

    " Even if Brittany willingly accompanied Easley, the law doesn't care. She's 12, not old enough to give legal consent, police and prosecutors have said." I'm not sure I understand why you believe this is an odd thing for LE and the prosecutors to say. They were simply rebutting Easley's stmt...

    Altavista, VA is less than an hour away from South Boston (where BMS lives now)...this area is pretty rural and lacks a significant interstate highway presence. My thought was that finding an atty reasonably close by that has this kind of experience was actually a god-send for BMS and her...

    I spoke with someone in Halifax Co, VA who is friends with some of BMS's close relatives. No one is saying anything but that's not to say that nothing is happening. LE is just playing it all very close to the vest (as they say).

    Spoke too soon. FB admin is just choosing to make the page invisible at times. Go figure.

    At least the worst of the Facebook pages is gone...the one that alleged to have contact with the high school pal of Easley's answering questions. :-)

    I don't think his IQ is low either...I think he probably has some learning disabilities. And all of the attendant crutches that accompany undiagnosed and/or unremediated learning disabilities...charm, high sociability, emotional immaturity, drug use, explosive temper, under-employment, etc.

    I'm just as curious as you are...as is everyone else. But the fact of the matter is that LE really owes the public nothing here. When they decide to release information, they'll release it. If this was a situation of a serial killer on the loose, then LE would be obligated to share. It's...
