    Perhaps knocked out then strangled?

    I hope she didn't know much ! :(

    It is astoundingly horrible. I cannot understand it. We have to worry about predators. Now we have to worry about what are essentially, their playmates.

    This poor little girl will never get to go home. Her parents will be forever destroyed. For what? What monsters could do such a thing?

    I got what you mean precisely. Don't worry. The thought of her parents knowing they will never be able to hug Autumn again is too much to bear. Please give yours an extra hug from all of us at websleuths. I'm so sad today.

    Finally, my feeling is the mother saw some posts that indicated the boys had contact with Autumn or tried to, the day she went missing. She talked to them, felt something was wrong and called LE.

    GOOD FOR HER!

    Can you imagine how that would feel? To hear that a little neighbor was missing. To worry about her and about your own kids, fearing a predator is on the loose. Then, to find something or see something or hear something in your very own home that connects to "that case". And ultimately the dawning horror that your own children, your own babies, might be involved?

    That's a Greek tragedy, folks. To do the right thing means accepting that your kids have done evil - may even be evil. It is to put your own needs to keep your family intact and protect your kids from harm, aside, in favor of the need for justice for a little girl.

    God bless this poor woman who did the right thing.

    Why did this happen? I just don't understand.

    I agree...but the positive thing...the community does not have to worry about a child preditor at large in their community .....and that probably puts many parents to breath easier tonight.

    God Bless the mom. Can't imagine how hard this must be on her, too.

    They haven't released the contents of the last text message:

    That's from ABC News (http://abcnews.go.com/US/teens-arre...utumn-pasquale/story?id=17542077#.UIcPJsXA95M). In my opinion, a text saying "don't be like that" definitely suggests a disagreement or fighting of some sort.

    The boys house was also a place many parties were given, so I imagine she did know the house.

    This is another case that hits home given that I grew up about 20 minutes from Clayton. This case has rocked the county and beyond. Everyone from home is talking about it on FB.

    I have seen the names of the suspects mentioned on FB, but I can't say them here. I've also read that apparently one of the boys actually 'liked' the 'Find Autumn Pasquale" FB page. I can't see the info on his page besides his profile picture, though a friend of a friend did look at his page and confirm that.

    I came across this on Twitter: https://twitter.com/grasso_amber/status/260847445687296001/photo/1 Just so chilling.

    I feel like the motive has to be above & beyond the bike. If they just wanted the bike, I'm sure they could have figured out a way to successfully steal it - it seems like they'd stolen many bikes before. I think bike parts was just an easy way to get Autumn to their house.

    (just my opinion! I have no information to back this up :))

    I wonder what insight their mother has to the boys' behavior. Can I really say that I would shelter my child if I knew he was capable of murdering another person, especially a child? I would be looking over my shoulder for the rest of my life, wondering what he would be doing next.

    Not all children are wonderful and I think many parents struggle to raise them the "right" way but things don't turn out for the best. It was apparently common knowledge that the boys or one boy stole bike parts. Was the mother afraid of them? Who knows.

    To me, that is even more chilling. Was she lured there specifically to do harm to her and maybe kill her? Why, then? Just because they didn't like her? That's terrible.

    In my case it is mobility issues. I don't go down to my basement unless its urgent - once a year or so. She could have relied on her sons to get anything needed down there. Also easy to pile boxes under a tarp in a dark corner etc.

    I've been following this case but not commenting. Of all the cases I've followed, this is the first one I've ever thought that the victim was going to be ok. I was shocked that she was found deceased and furious over such a senseless death.

    The mom of the boys did the right thing by calling LE, regardless of her motive. I would guess they'd been in trouble before or were difficult to handle and she knew they were capable of doing something like this.

    The headline for this article says "Autumn was strangled for bike parts". Ugh, I wish the media would get in agreement.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...r-12-year-old-girl-stuffed-recycling-bin.html

    "Two teenage brothers were charged with murdering 12-year-old Autumn Pasquale after luring her into their house so they could steal parts from her BMX bicycle.

    Autumn, whose body was found stuffed in a household recycling bin after she vanished over the weekend, was promised parts for her bike by the two, authorities said, but the teenagers were really plotting to take parts from her model."
