    Re bio dad. I liked how one poster put it. If he had the kids, we would not be here right now.

    Otoh, it is my understanding we can discuss family members' and victims' statements in MSM. As long as we don't veer into accusing them of the crime at hand (or any crime at all perhaps?) Bio dad and his girlfriend have opened quite the can of worms with the otherwise confidential documents they made public. What stood out to me is in my opinion they admit to withholding the kids from KW, but we have no proof KW actually withheld the kids beyond the shortened time frame she was trying to enforce. Unfortunately, I don't think there is a clause that you get to keep the kids if you suspect horrible things, even though there maybe should be. I believe, the KW gf altercation that happened was a result of bio dad refusing to return the kids, and because it didn't go to court we don't know who's statement is more true about the agressor in the situation, imo.

    I don't want to burn them at the stake or call them parents of the year. They have suffered unimaginable loss and for that I pray they find a way forward.

    Just my 2 cents

    Agree, but he was the one who contacted LE, there was a reason it wasn't a priority to check him out. IMO, they were already in the presence of those responsible.

    Whoever gave the information for Mariah's obit did not include her oldest sibling (her half brother) as a survivor on the Legacy site. Of course, they didn't include the grandparents, either, but that seems like a major oversight to not include a sibling.

    Mine was too, but wasn't clear. I'm sure AW did have an alibi, I just don't think he was on LE's radar to be checked out. I think they knew something was hinky when they arrived on the scene (possibly the 911 call came into play). AW should've been the first person called to notify him of Mariah's disappearance, for several reasons, but he wasn't (not by KW, not by LE). IIRC, his statement about being cleared was in response to a question posed by the reporter. He said they (AW & HC) also offered to take lie detector tests, too.

    I will be interested to hear about EK's childhood and life while growing up as things progress. That is one of the aspects (Purposes and Principles of Sentencing) that can affect his sentence if convicted. I say "if" in keeping with proper legal form but personally..... I would say "when".

    I'm a little confused. How is confirming the source of the information AW gave to the reporter putting down innocent until proven guilty or picking up "pitchforks and torches" or revealing of any feelings towards him? Is this directed towards me?

    Additionally I have seen the CPS documents confirm that the juvenile reported SA, inappropriate exposure to adult behaviour, and physical abuse. That didn't come from AW.

    Who is the "we" that is "dispensing justice" here?

    Regarding the Triad - I said I was happy to accept local knowledge after having put forward what my initial impression was when I saw the headline. I am entitled to an opinion, and that doesn't mean that your opinion is devalued or rubbished. All the replies on the matter didn't make it clear in the beginning that this was obvious because it was a local interest news headline, rather than national, but that eventually became clear. I never accept what I am told 'just because', I will probe so called facts until I'm satisfied for myself. I am neither blinded nor consumed by rage, neither have I taken anything out on anyone here, or attacked anyone's credibility and I do not accept responsibility for causing offence by putting forward a view, it's only ever been an exchange of information (nothing personal) and could not be resolved for me personally until I knew it was a local headline.

    I will leave it at that because I just don't get the tone of this, suggesting I am not respectfully disagreeing or working together for a common goal.

    I noticed that to. Maybe the names were left out purposely or someone asked that they be left out? Especially the step-brother. Trying their best to stay out if the public eye? Seeing the horrid things people are saying online along with threats would be enough to take any precaution possible to protect. JMO I could be wrong.

    No, the half brother (not step), while not posting publicly on his profile specifically about Mariah has made public comments on news articles saying he hopes his dad gets the boys. He has also commented that his feelings toward Mariah were that of a full sister, not half. So this points to his desire to be included, I would think, rather than trying to "stay out of it."

    Are you surprised that his parents have remained mum? No statement or anything? I think I am not as surprised that they haven't spoken to the media, but it almost seems to me they haven't helped LE much either. If the recently shared quote saying LE needs info on the family's whereabouts is current. Particularly odd given the Thanksgiving photo we've seen, I think.

    I don't know anything about trial. Thanks for the insight. It will be intriguing, indeed.

    I am working on a visual time frame that I can add to as info becomes available. I'm a visual person so this helps me. Anything incorrect or missing? For space reasons I can't add every detail but I don't want to miss anything deemed important. Input please?

    Dammit I lost your quote.

    Tortoise, I know I always enjoy reading your posts. Glad you are part of Mariah's thread.

    My take: it was not aimed at any poster and landed randomly. But I agree with the gist of GMs message.

    The emotions get pretty freakin intense in here, especially when there is no news and we don't know enough, which is the worst part, the not knowing, and all we are left with are our collective swirling amalgam of outrage and sorrow and pain.

    The 'kill the beast' 'burrn the witch' frenzy or mob mentality can easily become interwoven in the childrens' threads, whenever we have such horrible unspeakable things done to innocent children. We are emotional creatures, that's a given.

    Not judging anyone here just offering my observations. I am a scientist and prefer logic and reason over the high emotion, sometimes I read and feel and just absorb it all and sometimes I can't hit backspace fast enough. This is the toughest sub-forum here at WS imo.

    [emoji173][emoji173] We are all here for Mariah. [emoji173][emoji173]

    Do not know if this is what happened in this case but basic information in obit is free, if you start adding additional names or personal comments about the deceased they charge you. The listing of grandparents, half brothers sisters, aunts uncles etc would of cost money. The funeral home did not charge for funeral so I would assume they did the basic free obit.
