    I watched this case bubble to the top consistently every day I logged in, but I never participated.

    I then saw a 40 minute tv show and was perplexed at the end of it. That was a week or so ago.

    Yet still this thread bubbles to the top of its forum. Hmmm, whats happening here?

    What a horrifying experience. Heavily battered. My heart is crushed for this woman. If you have ever been heavily battered you know it is a horrible experience.

    Oh too. I think people are literally reading into the term flagged down.

    I don't find it odd that someone with a bound wrist in a dark, unfamiliar area would walk...in fact it would make sense...if she tripped running she wouldn't really be able to break her fall.

    I hate to think of any human experience the trauma and torture she did

    Just catching back up.
    I'm glad Lake brought up looking at jail records .... if nothing else it keeps our wheels spinning

    IMO this family used the media and kept pushing to find her , to make things Happen , even after she was released.
    So I'm thinking that LE has to be onto something or the family would be pushing for help in finding these awful people

    Someone told me something that has always stuck with me.

    If ever in a real life or death emergency situation then even if you have to bend/break the law to save you or your families life you may want to consider doing that.

    The example he gave me was if you were really lost or stranded with your family in the remote backwoods and you were about to starve to death and you knew there were searchers like in airplanes or copters going overhead but they couldnt find you then consider starting a really big fire. You dont want to start a forest fire but in a life or death situation it would be something to consider. Of course the fire could kill you too if you were downwind of it and of course if there was any houses around you surely would not want to do that. But if there were houses around you would not be lost either. :) LOL

    Same sort of thing if you are being chased by a killer or were just released from a kidnapping and were injured and needed an ambulance for help. Breaking into a building would be something to consider to use the phone or set off the alarm. Of course there are risks with everything and you would hope a security guard or responding officer wont shoot you.

    Just things to consider when your life depends on it.

    That's
    precisely the reason some people are so incredulous of this part of the story, with many saying SP must be protecting the identity of the perps out of fear or whatever. Kidnappings by women are extremely rare - especially ones where the victims are tortured and kept hostage for weeks; add hispanic to the mix and it becomes even more problematic.

    I'm truly not surprised you couldn't find anything to mirror this case. It's pretty unique.

    Unless, perhaps it means the person who dropped her off isn't all THAT familiar with the area. I live near Sacramento and went to college in Davis. I have been known to aimlessly drive on those county roads just for the heck of it. No reason, I just find it relaxing. From that point of view, I can think of very, very few businesses or properties out there. In my mind it's pretty much a bunch of farm roads that all eventually end up at I5, or a major street that will take you to I5.

    Then I look on Google maps especially aerial views and think "What? All that stuff is out there?" Someone who lives there or travels there a lot probably knows this, but in my mind that whole stretch is pretty deserted except for farms. If you're lucky and have to pee you might find an exit with a gas station. So thinking of it as someone who is generally just driving through there I can see not even really knowing what's nearby or how close anything is. As long as it's not an exit with a gas station there's not much obviously around, so maybe that's all the person was looking for in a "safe" drop off spot. And from SPs perspective I can imagine I5 being the only major thing that stood out as a place to look for help when the church didn't work out.

    The media used her case to keep it going for their ratings. Jmo. Because most families barely can get access to local reporters. Let alone Good Morning America and every major news channel and websites to advertise their missing loved one cases.

    Jmo. The media decides if they will give your case national attention or none at all.

    Jmo. But the family still did good in keeping it out there.

    And the bigger the story, the more scrutiny...just ask the McCann family....sadly their case hasn't turned out well. I can't think of a single high profile missing person/child case where there wasn't collateral damage. IMO, this case was treated relatively well by media.

    OMG.
    One of CG's many weird businesses was in Anderson. I need to go back and look up which one.

    Just before I read this post of yours, I was searching out how far Anderson is from Redding, so it's weird to read this. For the record, it's only about 10 miles.

    CG's involvement
    does NOT necessarily mean KP is involved. For me, though, there are FAR too many "coincidences" and hinky things about this guy.

    As for LJ (is that the friend's initials?), who knows how well or how long she really knew the family. She watched their kids; that doesn't mean they were bosom buddies all their lives. Hell; for all we knew, she inserted herself into the P's lives as a babysitter to get close to them. Odder things have happened. People backstab, doublecross, and pull confidence scams (and worse) on acquaintances all the time.
