    As a 17-year-old, Sigg can be tried and, if convicted, punished as an adult in the case. But, after U.S. Supreme Court rulings in other cases, he would not be eligible for the death penalty or a mandatory life term without parole.

    "I knew he had a sword collection in his room or a knife collection or whatever. But it was his man cave. A lot of people collect stuff," Danni said.

    A more recent encounter with Sigg left a very different impression on Danni.

    Danni says she ran into Sigg twice on a trail near Standley Lake, and he stared at her in a way that made her extremely uncomfortable.

    She says, both times, Sigg was with two friends.

    "It just really freaked me out," Danni said. "When I saw them I just felt automatically like they were up to no good. It hit me. I almost fell over seeing his picture. It brought me back to seeing him here and it just being so close."

    Just a question:

    In some of the cases we are following that may be connected, there are 2 or more perps. One to drive, one or more to grab the victim, possibly?

    The only "official" connection is the 2012 Memorial Day attempted abduction. That is also reflected in the booking charges.

    But yes, it is clear they are trying to see if there are any connections to any other cases and still asking for any tips about any other attempted abductions, etc.

    I too would like to know exactly where Jessica was when he grabbed her. I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere yet though.

    From what I am hearing/reading and I do not know for sure and I am not bashing the bio Dad,

    But big brother may have been a Father figure to little bro.

    Who knows he could have been completely different toward the younger brother and treated just like a normal big brother would have.

    I think we got it because of the frontier mentality and being so proud of being a colony who fiercely fought off our colonial chains and created an experimental society via the Constitution, etc (yes, individualism!). Add to that the huge amount of space and true 'wild' here at the time, colonialist ideals, and enormous numbers of slaves and immigrants in-country, and we are just a strange mix, still sorting ourselves out. No doubt about that!

    Who knew the Wild West was going to set the societal norm for the globe by -- what -- 2020 or so?

    At least the world can be thankful those stubborn and even more ruthless Afghani clans didn't invent Coke ;) It really could be worse. :(

    Since the judge has sealed all the documents, when will the public be able to know all of this? So far it looks like a lot of leaks and speculation. I don't agree with any of this. I think there should be cameras in the courtroom, and that the public should be privy to all of the information that the police have once charges are filed. It's frustrating being kept in the dark and not knowing what is going on.

    And we got rain last night and snow today, so searching open space is going to be a PITA. I hope if it was open space, they got their answers yesterday

    Thank you for that link! I've had an uneasy feeling all along that the perp may not have been working alone. AS's ex girlfriend relates (in the above-linked story):

    I'm not all that familiar with the laws in Colorado but I think that may be why they chose to charge him with multiple counts, instead of something like aggravated murder, capital murder,or whatever the equivalent charge is there. Usually there is a charge that encompasses all associated crimes in a case like this-see the Whitney Heichel case, where the perp is charged with agg. murder even though he also committed sexual assault, robbery, and other felonies in the course of her murder. But sentencing guidelines are usually restricted to LWOP or DP. That would not be an option in this case. Darn SCOTUS. :banghead:

    I hope Sigg is convicted of every charge they can stick to him If he jaywalked while dumping her body, charge him with that. Charge him with littering, desecration of a corpse, anything and everything and sentence him to the max for each charge, then have the sentences run concurrently.

    This pyschopath needs to not see the light of day again. EVER.

    For all the questions to him about "WHY".....I think we have our answer.

    This selfish, sick, perverted person just simply wanted to get "joy" out of it.

    These type of people give no value to human life, and have no remorse. It is important that we realize there are people out there like this. It took me a long time to really believe people can be this way, but the reality is they do exist.

    That article also says, "Monday's decision left open the possibility that judges could sentence juveniles to life without parole in individual cases of murder, but said state laws cannot automatically impose such a sentence."

    Wow... I'm very sorry to hear that. Unfortunately, IMHO, death is the only thing that makes the public 100% safe from a perv like AS. Ted Bundy's name came up earlier on this thread... he had managed to escape at least twice!!!

    Unless he's kept in solitary confinement, I think his days will be numbered.

    I *knew* there would be an arrest. I just knew it.

    Poor Jessica... But she can't be harmed again. I don't believe in heaven and hell. But I do believe we are in this existence for a reason. We are meant to experience, love, grow and become more that what we are. We are meant for more than the distractions that face us everyday- the superficial traffic headache, the just-right latte... We are meant to transcend all that. These are simple, basic truths that can be applied to any belief system.
    I think if one chooses to succumb to their inner demons, as Jessica's killer did, they destroy what soul they had. There is no repenting. There is no repair. He has destroyed himself. And there will be nothing to keep him intact when he passes on. People often wonder how someone could do what they did and still go about life- showering, sleeping, talking to people. I think they can do it because they are already gone. There is nothing left of what they were. They are a shell.

    Jessica will be cared for by the grace of the universe. But there is nothing left for her killer. And that justice will take care of itself.
    --
    Sorry. Don't mean to go on or come off as preachy. I respect that other people have their own beliefs and ideas. I just wanted to express myself and thoughts. Thank you all for allowing that.

    One example of that is the case I talked about in a previous post where the teenage murderer attacked a little boy riding a bicycle on a bike path. He said that he did it because he:

    wanted to feel what it was like to kill someone

    There are many more cases of this amongst juvenile muderers.

    I know this was meant as a general response, but I'd like to clarify my "why" was rhetorical. The question I asked is as such because it is unanswerable. Why are there people like this? Why do they exist? What is the purpose? Concerning biology and experiences that mold their characters I understand, but on a grander, cosmic scheme I cannot comprehend why evil and sickness such as this exist.
