    Thoughts and prayers for Jessica's family - especially her young son. This wasn't the news they had hoped for, but I hope this will be the beginning of Justice for Jessica. :rose:

    Very informative news conference. Many more details about what led to Willis' arrest will be presented at preliminary hearing. Willis could be arraigned on the kidnapping/murder charges as early as today.

    Just watched. They are really keeping tight lipped about everything. I know they are doing it to preserve the integrity of the case but I really want to know why they are choosing now to file these charges. What is the new evidence that tipped him from poi to being charged?

    I hope the cousin has info about where she is, in that case. The family deserves to lay her to rest.

    I am hopeful - maybe too much so - that her body will be found soon. I think there is a TON going on behind the scenes. This is heartbreaking, but it is much better if her family can find out what happened to her.

    Kevin Bluhm must be a key to finding her. :moo:

    I sincerely hope they find her soon and can lay her to rest. Give her family and poor son some much deserved peace. It's really too bad, IMO, that MI doesn't have the death penalty.

    Oh wow. I knew he was lying when he said he lied.
    Prayers to Jessica's family. According to the presser they were told this morning. I finally shut the presser off but it does sound like they have DNA evidence of her being in the house.

    Prayers to all of their families. Willis/ Bluhm families are innocent. I wish Bluhm would have called an anon tip in long ago. Praying he knows what Willis did with her remains

    Just heard the news I'm not shocked but it is not less devastating especially so for the Heeringa family. It's just absolutely tragic. I'm so sorry this monster was able to do this. Thanks to all of you for your news updates and for caring Jessica is found. It is infuriating these new charges will have little impact on him since he is likely going to die in jail now anyway. I'm glad the cousin has been charged too. He should have called the police as soon as he had information about Jessica. Jessica's parents, son and family are in my prayers they must be heartbroken and devastated.

    Is anyone else worried like me that if prosecutors use Bluhm, the cousin, as a witnesses he has already blown his credibility already by lying and Willis's attorneys are going to say to the court "you lied before to prosecutors so why should the court believe you now?" to help him. I'm sorry to bring this up but I just wondered what your thoughts were?
