    It's misleading. "Things" did not "go down" the way the people who planned this anticipated. They were expecting a much quieter affair, with some local scrutiny, sure, but not national and now international coverage. That changed the dynamic considerably, and forced them to rethink and in my opinion ultimately change their plans.

    Apparently they are regarding sleuthing the google+ thing as sleuthing CG's wife, which isn't allowed.

    Wish I had known before I spent my time analyzing it...

    Aside: does anyone have a link to some wedding service reviews Sherri wrote? I wanted to reread them, but didn't save a link when I came across them a few days ago. This is not on the blog, it's separate.

    To me, it is really hard to ignore the things that happened to her. They are the tell tale signs of trafficked hostages. The branding, the beatings, being chained up at first to be broken down into forced submission. I can't think of any other scenarios, besides a crazy serial killer, that would do all that.

    True. They may be dead and buried now for all we know...sad but true.

    Agree. But the men usually do the beating up part on sex trafficking victims. While these women seemed to have taken a more taunting position.

    I'm thinking a possible payback scenario here. But the main perp probably hired the women to do this. Idk

    BOLO for the bodies of two Hispanic females in California? Hmmmm..... But fortunately we can narrow it down a bit more. One was older than the other. One had curly hair, the other didn't. And apparently one had thick eyebrows. Should be easy to spot. /s

    Right. And we don't even know if the women were the ones that beat and branded her. Maybe they handed her off to a man or some men, who did all that. Then they gave her back because of the publicity factor. ?

    But no men involvement has been mentioned by LE as of yet. Just 2 women with a gun.

    We don't even know if the gun was a automatic or revolver.

    But I still would think that the police would mention males if any males were involved.

    Especially to boaster the abduction case. Jmo

    Yeah. I don't know why the title of the article is so misleading. I guess that's pretty typical though. No way would I go back to that same neighborhood with the abductors still on the loose.

    Agree. This could very well be possible. Lack of experience would explain them picking up a 34 year old jogger. It doesn't seem like the smartest thing to do.

    LE never said no men were involved. They just said two women were the kidnappers. That's it.

    But doesn't mean they weren't capable of murder. They kept her alive for a reason. I feel like this was a very personal attack.

    A few random observations:

    1 - I cannot believe this was sex trafficking. Gangs are not stupid. They go after a certain type of female: young, isolated, alone. Girls - sadly - about whom few people care. Gangs do not abduct 34 year old housewives with kids that are active in the community. This is a volume business, and 34 year old housewives will only cause major problems for the gang, and they know it. The idea that a rich, Mexican CEO requested a 34 year old blonde American as his sex slave might work for a cheesy romance novel, but please, this is just not realistic.

    2 - Why are these alleged Hispanic women trolling for women on rural backstreets in Redding? It doesn't make any sense, unless she was targeted for some time, and conveniently snatched while out on a jog. But if this were planned in advance, why snatch her? I think she doesn't work, or works only part time. Her husband works for Best Buy. My guess is they are not sitting on piles of cash, probably living paycheck to paycheck, like the vast majority of Americans. So kidnapping for cash also seems farfetched.

    3 - Revenge for a previous slight? You don't hold someone for 22 days to extract revenge. And what could this couple have done to warrant this type of revenge? He's on the Geek Squad at Best Buy, did he forget to format a disk, or improperly install a laser printer? Please...

    4 - How is it possible that two Hispanic women could snatch her without revealing their faces to her? Did they pull up in a "dark SUV" with their masks on? Why wouldn't they take the phone, quickly disabling it? Or at least take the ear buds. Do criminals typically leave these items behind?

    5 - When we look at "who benefits?" from this, we must assume whoever planned this had no idea it would become such a high profile case. CG has clearly benefited, he now has more customers for his business. But at the same time, he has been labelled "shady" by the national press. But my guess is that he had no idea when this began that people would scrutinize his life in so much detail. My guess is he was expecting a bit of publicity, get his name out there, and leverage that for business. Which has happened, but he's starting to lose control of the process, something he surely didn't anticipate in the beginning. And my guess is that there are others who now feel this has gotten out of control, and are looking to cut their losses.

    Hi, FIrst post here but have been following as much as I can keep up with. Forgive me if this post is not allowed and please delete but please don't ban me ��

    Watching this snip of the 20/20 interview it very much sounds like KP first says SP had a 'MILF' and then very quickly corrected himself and said 'chain....correct'. I know what MILF means but have no idea why he would mistakenly say that unless he was told not to say that but memory made him accidentally say it. Maybe she had on a shirt with that reference? Whether that is also somehow part of the message? Or maybe I am completely wrong in thinking that is what he actually said. Sure sounded like it though....

    Happy Tuesday everyone!

    I had seen a poster or two mention that the perps had their faces covered with bandanas, not masks. Is that fact or fiction, and can we get a link?
