    Yes it does. I will meet y'all here tonight.
    Glad to see Somer's story getting air time. We all love Somer, but you know a lot of people don't know her story.

    I didn't know this guy Corpus had failed his poly.

    And they just said Somer was wrapped in carpet. I know there's been talk of whether she was. Was that already confirmed? I thought it hadn't been.

    Wow this is really informative. That guy is creepy for sure, I can understand why LE spent so much time looking into him. A strange charactor thats for sure. But I did like the thought of that noose around JH's neck. I have to agree with his thinking there.

    His mother caught on tape re: fake alibi..Was this known before this show aired tonight? What about the shed? I've been out of the loop on Somer's case but will never forget her!

    I agree! There are so many details I hadn't heard before! Poor little Somer. It hurts my heart and makes me cry to think of what she went through. She was such a loving child - I'm sure she was so confused, terrified....ugh...I can't think about it. Poor Diena. I'd prolly kill myself if I had to go through something like she's been through. I don't know how she gets through the day, but she does...and I admire her for being able to do that.

    I was just searching and I don't see where Somer being in wrapped in carpet was confirmed before. Does anybody more familiar with the case than I am know if this is the first confirmation? Or did I just miss that?

    yes, i recall it being said once before in a video. There was never any confirmation that I know of until now. They siad the scrap of carpet, that could of come from the construction dumpster. They must of been able to confirm that if it was.

    Thanks, dar. They should be able to trace that. That's good evidence.

    ETA: Probably hair and fibers from him stuck on it. Hopefully anyway.

    I can go find the link, IIRC it was said after JH had been arrested in MISS.
