    I just hope DH is incarcerated for a decade plus so the family and children are / feel safe past their adolescence. So they know exactly where DH is and are secure in the fact that they will never again be approached by him or have any future contact.

    @ CircuitGuy

    I can find no place in my 'Christian heart' for the most wretched among us.
    I know I was taught to do so, but I can not muster an iota of compassion for DH.

    'He's 37 y/o. If he did the crimes, I hope there's some way he can repent, atone, and live some part of a normal life. I hope the kids are not traumatized or can recover if they are.'

    Are you effing kidding me? Of course the kids will be traumatised, and some, if not most, kids are who are sexually abused never recover. And you want him to be able to live a 'normal' life. Just wow.

    As for repenting and atonement, he can repent all he likes but it won't absolve him from being a registered sex offender. He will go to jail, as he should. And he will get a hard time from other inmates because no one likes child sex abuse offenders. I hope he gets hurt, just like he hurt those kids.

    The tabloids are saying DH is JonBenet's killer. What a load of. Sensationalism at it's finest.

    Wasn't he just a little older than Burke when JonBenet was killed? I'll have to look at what they're saying. I'm floored by this!

    Hello, I saw this thread and decided I would chime in. I actually have met and kind of know Dave in person as I graduated high school 3 years after he did at the same school. I know his brother Gregory very well. Dave worked at Walmart in Rutland VT up until his arrest, as the guy working the self check out lanes and I saw him there frequently.

    <modsnip> She owned a small house in Castleton between what we call the Village and the Four Corners and they were all extremely odd.

    Greg always needed para educators and special assistance etc. Dave always seemed to be the more intelligent of the two but with him being older and an outcast type I didn't spend much time chatting with him.

    I suspect he was abused as a child and could be why he started doing it himself. Not making excuses for the guy at all, he definitely deserves a harsh judgement but being that it was in Vermont criminals usually only get a slap on the wrist and I suspect he won't even serve time.

    Hi VTer,
    Thank you for the insight. Do you know anyone who knew David at college? I only ask because, from threads on here, it seemed to be the happiest time of his life.

    @VTer thank you for your insight.

    something dave said ( I think I have linked or copied it here in this thread earlier) that gels with what your saying about the incestuous relationship with his mother.....was to the effect of some kids like to be abused, in the way that they don't realise its wrong.
    a very sad and disturbing statement but likely from the mouth of experience.:oops:

    they are the worst affenders. the kind...sweet caring....this is because I love you hooha....just shocking, cruel and mind altering sabotage to innocence.

    Welcome to WS @VTer - thanks for your insight.
    I agree that most pedophiles were once victims. I just hope there are not more than currently being reported.

    Are you saying that crimes of this nature, like incest or child molesting, are known to be common in Vermont by citizens there, and thus are treated differently? That would be an uncomfortable truth if so.

    Absolutely stunned. I'd been a poster here for many years, but kind of got discouraged after the GJ report and realized that this crime, which I believed police actually solved years ago, would likely never see an arrest of the real killer. I haven't been on here for years, due to my own health issues and sudden and unexpected death of my husband- my life has and still is in a bit of a turmoil. For some reason I felt compelled to "check in" today- and saw this news about Super Dave. I think I actually bought his book years back. I never really paid attention to his age, but now that I know how young he was when he developed his "interest" in JB, it does raise some red flags. Teen boys do like true crime stories, but this is something very different. I pray his victims were few and that there will be no further victims. God bless them.

    Same with me- haven't been here for years but somehow felt compelled to log in today. Can't explain why, but someone who posted regularly with SD for years, I am utterly stunned by this news.
