    STOP! and read this post before you proceed


    Victim Friendly

    Websleuths is a victim friendly forum. Attacking or bashing a victim is not allowed. Discussing victim behavior, good or bad is fine, but do so in a civil and constructive way, and only when such behavior is relevant to the case.

    The "victim friendly" rule extends to the family members of victims and suspects. Sleuthing family members, friends, and others who have not been designated as suspects is not allowed. Don't make random accusations, suggest their involvement, nor bash and attack them. Posting their personal information, including names, addresses, and background data -- even if it is public -- is not allowed. That does not mean, however, that statements made by family members and other third parties cannot come into discussion as the facts of the case are reported in the media.


    Social Media/Social Networking Links, e.g., Facebook and Twitter

    Approved Pages/Profiles

    Individuals
    Victim (missing or murdered person)
    Suspect (as indicated by LE)

    If a social media page is set to private and you get in the back way, you may not post what you find. Private means private!

    Legitimate non-profit organizations who provide assistance and support to victims and their families (e.g., Klass Kids, Texas Equusearch).
    Links may be used to direct members to a post by the owner or an admin of an approved social media page/profile.
    Posts by an owner or admin may be copied or quoted. This refers primarly to posts or tweets by MSM reporters, and announcements by law enforcement, the immediate family, or the admin of a group support page.
    Paraphrasing is okay.
    ***NOTE: Comments and posts by readers/visitors of these pages are not allowed to be quoted, copied or referenced. Just don’t mention them.

    Regarding group support pages, i.e., "Help Find..." and "Justice for...”: If at any time the WS staff determines a group support page to be inappropriate, a notice will be posted in the thread stating that the page is no longer approved.

    I don't believe it works for most of us Canadians. We have to wait for the replay, unfortunately.

    I am sure it's true...and it just adds yet another level of devastation to this case. I am even more curious about the whole situation. Such as the why, and the how. Has it been released if Haileys blood was found at the house or just Dads?

    What kind of person can look at that little face and then want this baby dead? My mind just can not grasp these things. The whole world is just a sadder place because of the loss of this angel on earth.

    http://calgaryherald.com/opinion/columnists/fortney-social-medias-role-in-blairmore-tragedy

    "Thanks to social media, that phenomenon of small-town gossip went several steps further. RCMP officials credited tips via social media sites such as Twitter for helping to quickly close in on the accused murderer, many prompted by an Amber Alert that was activated three hours after Blanchette&#8217;s body was discovered in his home Monday.

    While Hailey&#8217;s 20-year-old mother, Cheyenne Dunbar, lamented publicly that she had learned of her ex-boyfriend&#8217;s murder and daughter&#8217;s disappearance on Facebook &#8212; and she also found herself addressing and quashing online rumours of a romance between her and the accused &#8212; that now decade-old social media tool has played a useful role in the story.

    Mainstream media has had access to many of the friends, family and other community contacts via their postings about the tragedy; on Wednesday, people like Hailey&#8217;s grandmother, Terry-Lynn Dunbar, were posting heartbreaking stories about the effect the deaths were having on the families.

    Not surprisingly, memorial sites dedicated to Hailey and her father began popping up as the tragedy was unfolding. Anyone connected to the pair was quickly putting up photographs, some even posting their own video montages of the small child&#8217;s short life. People from across Canada, and the world, were sending their condolences, while others announced the formation of candlelight vigils and balloon release ceremonies across Western Canada".

    I'm confused...was what true? About the post on the last page brought over from the last thread.

    Is that blue tent something that would have been put up by police to preserve the scene? It's very windy down there much of the time.

    somehow a rumor looked like breaking news, the explanation is it was mistakenly posted. That is all.

    I do think the blue tent is set up to preserve a crime scene because I've seen that happen in many cases but I have no idea if it was there before the crime scene tape went up around that area.

    If I understand correctly, the blue tent is located where Hailey's remains were found.

    I don't know if this answers your question or not.
