    Oh wow, gaia. Your stepsister must be in shock. I just read about this case this morning. I'm thinking the facebook clue might have a lot to do with this. Also, the fact that she was murdered in the home she shared with her parents leads me to believe the perp must known her or had knowledge of family schedule/ie when she would be home alone because busting into that house to kill her takes tremendous nerve if you don't know if her family might be there at the time.

    I just read in the NY Daily News that LE called Carmen's cell phone, which was missing from her home, and a man answered. They will not say whether or not the man is a suspect or just someone who may have found the phone or purchased it from someone looking to get rid of it.

    thanks for the link

    the comments there are ridiculous, though! It's surprising to me that many of the people posting there are making it about politics and social networking sites. One guy even says something along the lines of "Stop showing your cleavage" as if a girl wearing a low cut shirt is somehow okay to stalk, rape, and murder!

    I agree that if you're posting "massage" services on craigslist you need to be aware of what can happen, but it didn't make what happened to the lady killed by the C-List murderer and less tragic. When it comes to Facebook, I think that they're likely the most secure of all social networking sites, and I don't think that this crime had anything to do with Facebook, besides the possible clue she left. (Not that anyone here is claiming that Facebook is the reason she was murdered)

    I hope the perp was dumb enough to take it and answer!

    I try not to read the comments any more because I just get really angry. A girl was just murdered violently and people can think of nothing but derrogatory, mean, senseless and downright unnecessary things to say. Something about the anonymity of the internet really brings out the worst in people.

    How could you be so stupid? If it really is the killer he is just pretty dumb and that's all there really is to say about that.

    Looks like from the story in this morning's NY Post (www.nypost.com) that Carmen had attended a party the night before and left her cell phone at the home of the host. When her mother came home calling for her and got no response, she called the cell and got the host of the party on the phone who explained what had happened. He's been cleared as a suspect.

    They now think someone may have followed her home from the party.
