    Words fail me. This is so horrific. I hope this guy never sees the light of day again. :furious:

    I know this isn't anyone's fault but the defendant's, but why was a 17 year old girl out at 6am?

    Wow, what ugly actions. This poor girl, I have to agree on the question of why she was out all night.

    It sounds like her friends took her to the hosptial right away.

    ETA:

    BBM. After reading some comments at this article, it looks like her friends DIDN'T take her to the hospital right away or even call the police until later. http://www.topix.net/forum/source/myfox8/TN8MPNHSVBMGT5EPE

    Ok, I've lied to my parents too, who hasn't. I wonder where she told them she was? As far as waiting an hour before calling anyone I think it had to do with underage drinking and their fear of being caught. JMO
