    We aren't allowed to sleuth the girlfriend so her history is unknown. I was making a general point about mom not wanting kids around a girlfriend - just like dad not wanting kids around a boyfriend not specifically this situation. But in general people tend to have more issues with moms moving guys in to be around kids then if the dad does the same thing. I was trying to be clear by starting the post with I am not defending mom in anyway - but apparently i flubbed up big time in getting my point across.

    No. She's not dead. I'm not sure where this sudden misinformation is coming from.

    One would think that would be the case but maybe she needs to keep up the pretense.Plus she might get a chance to flash her choppers.
    On a serious note I wonder if the two boys will go. I kind of hope not. IMO

    I was thinking about this last night as I fell asleep. Did any of those documents say or allege that there was any SA the night that Mariah went missing?

    I can't imagine EK doing that with KW in earshot? I'm not saying it can't happen, but I would have thought it more likely that a mother leaves her kids alone with her male partner and that would be when SA would happen, and then maybe a child that's old enough would try to tell the mom and some moms just refuse to listen and go into denial mode, sometimes even blaming the child that reports it.

    From what I recall of the first NG interview with the bio dad, Mariah either wasn't sleeping after being put to bed or woke up crying and then EK (or KW or both) hit Mariah. There was no mention that I recall of SA happening at that point in time.

    They had joint custody, meaning they both had equal power over the children. She had *residential* custody, meaning they resided with her the majority of the time, but he would still have every right to pick them up at school.

    Right, but my point is, if the cops wouldn't help Dad, then they wouldn't help Mom, either, right?

    She had residential custody, not sole custody, so he still had a say in everything involving the kids.

    He said he worked Friday nights and since she would not allow HC to pick them up, he couldn't get them until Saturday.

    Not necessarily. I had residential custody of my kids and my ex had to be specifically listed on school forms in order to have the kids released to him.

    Everyone is missing my point.

    I'm saying if he could have gotten the kids, any way possible, that he would have been able to keep them as long as he wanted *IF* it is true that law enforcement would not have enforced the custody and visitation order, which AW says they would not do.

    In 2008, I went to pick up my kids at my estranged husband's at the time agreed upon by the court. They weren't there. He wouldn't tell me where they were, just literally laughed at how concerned and frustrated I was. I went home and called the cops, who told me it was a "civil matter" so they could do nothing. I immediately called my divorce attorney, who got ahold of my estranged husband's attorney, and told him he needed to get his "client" in line with the court order and return the kids to me immediately. Yet, it wasn't until a full 3 hours later the kids showed up on my doorstep, dropped off by his cousin, who refused to tell me where they had been.

    At least in AZ, the cops hands were tied...

    I think that too could be possible. My ex tried the same with me, and then, to my new spouse, To top if off, my ex knew the ramifications b/c my ex's mother, did the exact same thing (only much, much, worse, and even to the point of withholding visits and falsifying records.).

    Then again, the one kid may just not have liked her for their own reason.

    Natural or suicide I am sure we can ignore at this point but accident is usually when the victim caused or precipitated the event but homicide simply means at the hands of another. A death where the accident was caused or precipitated buy another would still be listed as homicide. An example would be if a person tripped and fell into another person causing them to fall into traffic where they were struck by a vehicle and died. That MOD would be homicide but no murder occurred. So it makes it difficult to charge someone with murder if the autopsy can not conclusively determine murder.

    Remains found in Pender County positively identified as Mariah Woods

    Remains found Saturday in Pender County have been positively identified as 3-year-old Mariah Kay Woods, according to the Onslow County Sheriff's Office.

    snip

    Since the discovery of her body in Shelter Creek along Shaw Highway, a memorial of stuffed animals, balloons, cards and signs has been forming near Mariah's home.

    The teddy bears at the memorial will go to Mariah's two brothers, while all toys that remain will be donated to children in the Department of Social Services and to first responders.

    snip

    Mariah weighed heavy on the minds of so many in the community, including Shannon Graves and her 4-year-old son, Gavin. 1

    "I would hope that someone would care like that for my child if something like that was to ever happen. I can't imagine the pain the family must feel," Graves said.

    "I'm hurt. Everybody is hurt around here. I called the aunt (Monday), and they were in tears. Grandma is crying," said resident Corey Humphrey.

    Interesting, but KW's full name is not stated in the article. She is referred to as "Mariah's mother;" both EK's and AW's full names are used in the same article.

    I think he probably could do that if he came early. Having "primary custody" doesn't preclude the other parent from picking up the kids from school unless the orders specifically state the other parent has sole legal custody and the parent has no right to pick up the kids.

    But she could easily show up at school and pick up the kids and refuse to let him take them.

    More important, he wouldn't have had Mariah.
