    'Demented' ... one word news media is using to describe this man. I'm sure more info will come out in the next few days as to his state of mind. Not that I'm interested in peering into such a depraved mind. These past few weeks have had way too many senseless deaths of innocent babies and toddlers! This represents the lowest of 'humanity'.

    I haven't seen a word about little Phoebe's mother yet. Where is she?

    I saw in an article that he had custody of her & that the mother was notified. So sad.

    One article (linked in post #6 above) stated that police contacted Phoebe's mom, who lives in the area, but that JJ had full custody.

    I saw this on Facebook last night. How unbelievably heartbreaking! If he did lock her in her room and yell at her constantly and also had sole custody of her I can't imagine what her home life must of been like, and why he was deemed fit to be the custodial parent. Poor sweet Phoebe, you are safe now and flying with the angels. :rose::rose:

    I find it odd that they say the child fell 62 feet, the skyway is actually over 200 ft in the middle. Seems that if the end result was to kill the child you would go to the top and not throw her from such a low height.

    In 1997 while fishing the old skyway I hooked into a teenagers body who had jumped a couple of days before. His body was spotted by a trooper floating towards me and he began screaming for somebody to catch him before the tide took him back out.

    Probably any height would have been fatal. How well could a five-year-old swim in that water? If she even knew how to swim.

    Reading the articles, I got the impression that he threw her over to distract the cop so he could get away. I could be wrong about that, but there's just no scenario here that's "better" than any other. Just heart-breaking any which way it happened.
