    I'd like to add to some of the comments about no pictures or mentions of Emma (or Caylee on Casey's for that matter). While their actions regarding their babies is heinous, not putting them on their MySpace or Facebooks might not be an indication of anything. I have memberships at both and only mention in passing my children and don't have any good pictures on them. Why? Internet predators. Maybe I'm overly paranoid but when I want to exchange photos of my children, I email them to the people I choose to have them instead. But then again, I don't have nekkid or nearly nekkid pictures floating around either.

    Honestly, I don't know what to think about Stacey. I don't have the same anger towards her that I do towards Casey. I still think what she did was dispicable but maybe because there's less information about her floating around I'm still puzzled. Anyone else feel this way?

    Though I'd rather believe Nick made this change due to what he knows/believes his sister has done, it could be that there's no reason to have Stacy as a "top friend" since she's jailed and not even using myspace...

    Wow. I just read every page!

    I think this woman had a man who didn't want kids (not his fault if he was being honest) and she was being neglectful of her daughter out of spite and maybe she was out that day doing something she really should not be doing and the baby died as a direct result to her mother's neglect. I am curious to find out what the time of death was as I believe Stacey waited 6 hours before calling police in order to sober up and plan out her story.

    No mother who loves her child finds her child choking and does not scream or call for help. Only a mother guilty of causing that death - would dump her child off the road and hurt herself and stage a crime scene in order to avoid facing the piper.

    That baby was gorgeous and I am sorry these mothers are such POSs.

    Also - I had a boyfriend who once told me he enjoyed being with ME not "The mother I was" and he sometimes wished it could just be us. He even went so far as to say he would never marry a woman who already had children.

    After a lot of tears and feeling rejected - I showed him the door and moved on. I am now married with another child to an amazing man and that old boyfriend is miserable in his life and regrets his choices. KARMA comes around hard.

    Okay, I'm irritated! KTLA.com has changed their web layout as of yesterday and the articles that had all of the great comments attached to themy are gone...POOF!

    I can't even get ANY articles to come up when I type SB name in the search engine. Ugh! How am I suppose to insite Amber??? Ugh!

    Changes, changes, I don't like changes! I had a routine, don't these people understand?
    1. click on Nick's MS (that I bookmarked)
    2. click on Stacey, in Nick's friend list
    3. click on Amber B, in Stacey's friend list
    4. go back to Stacey's MS, click on Brendon
    5. click on the KTLA article (that I bookmarked) on Stacey (the one with all the juicy comments!)
    6. click on 'contact Nancy Grace' (that I bookmarked) and send her my daily e-mail

    Now my routine is all mucked up!!!

    ETA: Okay, I'm off to devise a new plan of action!

    Comments from Nick's MS: (don't these people realize that Nick is in the middle of a family crisis that involves the death of his neice, at the hands of his sister???)

    Thank you so much Chicogirl36...I have came a long way since getting help. It's a process that I have to work on everyday. I just make sure I surround myself with healthy and positive people. Plus, I have now have a son who is 3 so he is my number one reason to stay healthy so he doesn't lose me.

    So has anything been released as far as new info or anything? It's just so strange to me that they are so tight lipped. With the Peterson case out in California information was released but not so much with this one. Chico or anyone else from around the area...is there any small talk about it?

    I don't think so...

    California Public Records Act

    GOVT. CODE §§ 6250 - 6276.48
    ...

    Police Incident reports, rap sheets and arrest records
    are exempt (Penal Code §§ 11075, 11105, 11105.1), but information in the "police blotter" (time and circumstances of calls to police; name and details of arrests, warrants, charges, hearing dates, etc.) must be disclosed unless disclosure would endanger an investigation or the life of an investigator. Investigative files may be withheld, even after an investigation is over. (Gov. Code § 6254(f); Williams v. Superior Ct., 5 Cal. 4th 337 (1993); County of L.A. v. Superior Ct., 18 Cal. App. 4th 588 (1994). Ident ifying
    data in police personnel files and misconduct complaints are exempt, but disclosure may be obtained using special procedures under Evidence Code section 1043.

    IIRC, Florida has some very open laws that other states don't.

    I think we've been spoiled in the Casey Anthony case with all those document dumps. It's not going to be SO good here but if we can generate enough interest we might get more like they did with OJ, Robert Blake and Phil Spector. Or maybe you just have to be a rich, entertainment murderer.

    coley, i just wanted to thank you for your honesty about your issues with this drug...my ex-husband also got addicted to meth and it certainly made him a completely different person. in the span of about 6 months he went from being superdad/great guy to someone i wouldn't even allow my children to be around. luckily, he loved himself and them enough to get help and has been clean for over five years. he and i are still, to this day terrified of relapse, so much so that he left his line of work (he was a sheet metal journeyman) for a much lesser paying job to be in an environment where it isn't so pervasive. it is a terrible drug that is VERY common these days and VERY hard to beat. i'm proud of those of you who get through....:)

    re: SB we don't know the answer yet, but at her court appearance, SB definitely had the "meth user" look to her. i originally thought that she dumped Emma's body where she did because she had already come up with her abduction story and tried to fit it in, but what people are saying about her either already being in the area, something happening, and her having to sober up before she called police makes sense. JMO...

    Well, just a tiny bit of SB on Nancy tonight. I almost missed it, it was so quick. They were comparing some of the similarities. LOL, they had casey & Stacey's mug shot up, side by side and also, pics of Caylee & Emma.

    That's not the picture I was hoping they would use but, oh well! Plus, I hadn't seen Stacey's mug shot before tonight. :eek:

    yes, and she said something like, "did KC inspire a copy cat crime?" As I recall, I think that's how she intigrated Stacey into the story for those few moments.

    I don't think I've seen her mug shot either. Is it posted anywhere on the thread?

    Thanks MMB! You're right - I was so completely out of it, the next day I demanded they remove that stupid machine and button from my room - I couldn't even look at it. At least the pain made me feel normal, and I could walk to the bathroom without the assistance of a nurse.

    Then I think of people (like this stacey) who could be out there doing meth, crack, heroin every day. Maybe she hallucinated so much she didn't even know what she was doing? I'm not defending her, but when under the influence, you can do/say some pretty crazy stuff.

    I wonder if any of her "friends" will come forward about any drug useage??

    I thought it was so great, Fifth! NG said to the producer: "and tell me about the copy cat murderer out there in California" (or close to that) and then the producer person goes into this spiel about Barker. I was thinking to myself - take that Stacey! You are not even original! You are a copycat of the most hated woman in America!

    I know that is kind of gloating at the expense of those poor babies and I don't mean it like that. But I did appreciate the dig at Stacey. She deserved it and whatever else Lady Justice might bring her way. KC also deserves whatever Lady Justice brings her way.

    May those little girls sleep tight with the Angels!

    No, we dont have the Sunshine Law and you usually dont get good info until discovery or trial, unfortunately. This case has a security hold and I would assume a gag order- There is NO NEW NEWS that I can find- :mad: ANYWHERE!!! Just people writing about what we have already knew for months!!
