    Maurice Dubois said his memory of his 14-year-old daughter Amber will be forever marred by an autopsy photograph of her battered body."

    Forgive me for appearing callous but this statement caught my eye. If Amber had been killed and left in the desert for over a year then how much of 'her battered body' would remain? I had heard that there were only scattered bones remaining. Has anyone heard of anything different? Is he speaking of her skeletal remains or an actual physical body? Or is he speaking in semantics for effect.

    Knowing the media, they probably got it all wrong. Sorry, but this sounds like a media blunder to me.

    REGION: Assembly passes 'Chelsea's Law'

    Governor expected to sign tougher sex predator laws tied to murdered teens Chelsea King, Amber Dubois


    The California Assembly on Monday passed what its sponsor said was one the nation's toughest sex offender laws, unanimously approving "Chelsea's Law" in response to the abduction, rape and murder of Poway High School senior Chelsea King.

    Thanks. From link:

    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has promised to sign Chelsea's Law, Assembly Bill 1844, into law. He also has said he will sign three bills that grew out of the Amber Dubois case.

    That package of bills requires a checklist for police to follow during missing-child investigations, speeds up the time law enforcement must report a verified missing child case to the National Crime Information Center from four hours to two hours, and establishes a director of missing child operations position in the state attorney general's office.

    Once signed, the bills will go into effect Jan. 1 of next year. Police agencies would have one year to develop the checklist.

    I have a couple of possibles on this:
    What if the skull were crushed? That would be pretty terrible to see.

    It is possible that just seeing her remains as a pile of bones laid out could have been traumatic for him, especially if there were clothing remnants that could be seen and identified. Not wanting to be graphic, but evidence of animals gnawing on bone is gruesome.

    BTW, the area this was found in was not a desert, it is covered in brush. The condition of the body would be different depending on if it were in a shallow grave, actually scattered around, under the brush, or in the direct sunlight. Also if it were wrapped in anything (a trash bag or tarp, perhaps).

    Again, not meaning to be graphic but I have this guinea pig that the vet placed in a plastic bag when she died. I buried her in the bag, and her sister not in a bag about a year later. I accidentally hit their graves about a year after that while digging up a bush (the root system was larger than I thought), and the bagged piggie was scary. The other was only bones.

    Sorry if that was TMI, just wanted to say there could be lots of reasons an autopsy picture could freak a person out. No parent expects to bury their child.

    5 Years After Dubois Disappearance, a Look at Chelsea's Law

    http://www.nbcsandiego.com/news/loca...245416961.html

    "According to a newly released foundation report, 382 people were charged under Chelsea’s Law in 2013 across San Diego, Riverside, Los Angeles and Orange counties."

    "Here in San Diego County between Sept. 1, 2012 and Aug. 31, 2013, the District Attorney’s office charged 31 defendants with lewd or lascivious acts involving children, oral copulation and rape upon a minor 14 years of age or older and more."

    "During that same time period, six defendants were sentenced under Chelsea’s Law provisions."
