    Not if he knocked her out from behind and then put her in his truck. The cornfield was the secondary location, that's where any assault happened, and by then she was most likely incapacitated. No scratches, no bruises, because there was no fight. Less than 30 seconds to pull over, pop the trunk, and sucker punch or otherwise incapacitate a victim. I don't believe a single word passed between them.

    This does nothing at all to help and is awful, not to mention illegal. Work to change the system legally if you are upset with current laws.

    If the farmer doesn't know him by the name that was released than I guess that explains THAT.

    I'm kind of curious. He had an interpreter at the hearing today. Does he speak no English or just limited?

    It’s a bit of all of the above. There’s a legal strategy, a strategy concerned by appearance, and a psychological one that allows him to let himself off the hook.

    Occasionally we have good endings. The Ohio girls captured by Ariel Castro; Jaycee Duggard; Elizabeth Smart.... a few runaways had threads deleted when they were found quickly.

    Why should it matter if he approached the family or the family or court approached him? CR is entitled to a good defense and if I were a resident I would absolutely want him to have the best possible attorney so that his conviction sticks. I can’t imagine that at this point anyone would hold it against him... someone has to represent CR, right? Now if he started throwing Mollie under the bus THEN I could see him being public enemy #1 in that county.

    So many victims here. This will be a long time coming to trial. Everybody's lives will be put on hold over and over again.

    I wonder if their conversation was in English. In court, CR had two translators.

    On the one hand, actions have consequences. On the other hand I think punishments have to fit crimes. People are upset right now, their safety has been threatened and the world they lived in has changed forever. I would think a town wide candle vigil for Mollie would be much more productive and a group of people to create a memorial for her, perhaps a scholarship fund for someone who wants to pursue what Mollie had hoped to do, find some way to allow Mollie's hope for a better world to still happen.

    People do realize that a lot of employers are aware that they employ illegal immigrants, right? They pay them below minimum wage and mistreat them because they know none of them will be able to complain. My partner works at a machine shop and their boss warned everyone to "figure out a way to get legal" when Trump became president. They know what they're doing.

    And remember, it's only his word about what happened; he's had a month to think about things, and of course he's going to spin things in a way that gives him (in his mind) the best advantage. Hopefully the autopsy will give us a somewhat clearer picture of what went down.

    She could have been near the end of her run and exhausted too.

    Well, I watched the video of the proceedings. I don't know if could do what Mr. Richards was doing. That would be tough for me.

    As a side note, I felt like there was much tension in there - as one should expect. Yet the accused didn't appear to "blackout" amid all that stress. But then I am not a medical expert.:mad:
