    very sad ....... this needs to be 'broadcasted' to young girls from aged 12 and up....video at link pretty much sums it up...she was a good kid but little parental involvement. Her siblings speak well of her and bless that uncle for looking for her.

    RIP Deanna

    May Deanna Rest in Peace.

    From the article JerseyGirl posted:

    This is notable because we've occasionally speculated here that some families of the missing may have not stepped forward despite suspicion their relative might be a particular UID. I'm in no way passing judgement on anyone, but it sounds as though that's what happened here, with some family members holding off in respect to the wishes of the victim's mother.

    I am glad that finally someone is saying out loud what the 31 yr old really was: a pedophile.

    Unclear why father was estranged from daughter from MSM.

    ""She's not out there in the woods somewhere," she said. "It's sad what happened to Deanna. Obviously Deanna fell through the cracks and there was nobody there to catch her."

    Next month, Deanna's father, Jerry Criswell, will travel to Tucson with Donald Criswell and another brother to place a new tombstone on Deanna Criswell's grave, Ellen Criswell said.

    The name over her grave no longer will read "Jane Doe 19."

    the aunt is right, deanna fell through the cracks but i don't understand why the parents buried their heads in the sand and
    (a) didn't report her missing
    (b) convinced themselves she was alive and well and will get in touch when she felt like it
    i am glad she is no longer unknown, she was deanna criswell
    and i certainly hope she is at peace

    I have a few questions. So semen found linked her to William Knight. Was it determined if she was raped by him? She fought his advances and he kills her?

    How long did she know him prior to him sending her the bus ticket?

    In an article it mentioned she was a frequent runaway since the age of 11. Wow! How did she make it out on her own especially that young?
