‘I feel in trouble’: Missing Alabama woman sends alarming text to friend after leaving with two strangers
Not too long ago a young coworker of mine was headed to a party after work. She was a little uncomfortable going because although she knew her date she knew she wouldn’t know the crowd there. As a mommy figure to her, she asked me if she could enable her find your friend feature so that I would know where she was in the event something went wrong.
So I can see where PH sends an alert to a friend saying i’m Around people I don’t know and if I call answer. What bothers me about this message is she appears to be beyond the warning as she states she already feels in trouble. In that case I think my coworker and most other women would have called right then and there and not send a text saying I may be calling. Certainly the only thing past trouble is grave danger and then it’s too late to call. IMO
That's a great example and your coworker is a smart young woman.
I can't help but wonder. If the friend had immediately responded to the text, would we be discussing this case today? I'm not placing responsibility on the friend. Looking back and replaying the circumstances differently is something I find myself doing. Useless I know ...
I'm heartbroken for Paighton's family today.
