    ALTHOUGH AMBER IS NOT MISSING ANYMORE, I THOUGHT I'D POST HERE AS THIS IS READ MORE OFTEN... (hope mods don't mind)


    I'm requesting prayers for little AMBER whose mother originated the AMBER ALERT.

    Ambers murderer has NEVER BEEN FOUND. That's a horrible shame. I want to send prayers to Ambers family that they will find resolution in Ambers killing and the perp will be brought to justice.

    Here's links:

    Thank you, Blueclouds! Amber's family lives in the same area as we do, and I think of Amber and her family often. I remember the horror that gripped our community for those few days she was missing before she was found, and then a different kind of horror after she was found.

    Thank you for initiating something for this family who has helped so many others through their tragedy.

    August 17, 1999


    Richard Lee "Ricky" Franks was arrested and charged with aggravated kidnaping and indecency with a child after admitting to authorities that he abducted six-year-old Opal Jennings.

    Police say Opal was taken on March 26, 1999 from her home in Saginaw, Texas. At around 5:30 that evening, Opal was in her front yard playing with two other children when a man got out of his car, walked over to the group and grabbed Opal. Police say the man put the six-year-old in the front seat of his car and drove away.

    The abductor was described to police as a white or Hispanic male with dark shoulder length hair, pulled into a ponytail. The suspect's car was described to police as a dark colored, possibly a Chrysler or Plymouth model.

    The initial tip on Franks came from his probation officer. Police say the officer noticed in an April 1st probation meeting that Franks had cut his hair. The officer also noticed he was driving a car that matched the description of Opal's abductor. Frank's probation officer told the cops.

    But by the time the information made its way to the investigating officers in the case, it was one of many leads. With the detectives from Saginaw forging through hundreds of leads, the Franks tip was not checked into for weeks.

    Ultimately, when the cops noticed the similarities in Franks and the abductor, and that he had a criminal record, he became a suspect. To get him into custody so the officers could start their interrogation, Franks was picked up on an outstanding traffic warrant on August 17, 1999.

    When he was questioned, Franks admitted that he was the man that took Opal from her front yard, but said that the six-year-old went with him willingly. Franks also told police that Opal attempted to initiate sexual contact with him.

    Police and FBI searched for any trace of Opal around Franks' house and car and several areas around Saginaw. Opal has still not been found. Franks is currently being held in the Tarrant County Jail in Fort Worth on a $1.5 million bond.

    JOHNNY, DID YOU POST THIS because you think Opal's killer could be Ambers as well?

    I wanted others to see the possibility without my opinion.
    Looks like you came up with the same thought.

    Studies say that many times sexual offenders (psychopaths) start at older ages many times and progress younger and younger. Wonder what his first sexual offenses were and if we can get more details.

    Hi ,i am just a lurker , but wanted to let you know something you may consider disturbing. If you go to the main page of this site,
    http://www.puellula.org
    instead of this link
    http://www.puellula.org/en/Missing/Memoriam/Hagerman.html

    you will find something that may make you feel sick to your stomach.
    It is horrible that he is using the name and images of missing children on a site like this.

    I am so disturbed by the seemingly glorification this man impresses about his perversion. Although the internet is a mecca for information and affords so much positive opportunity...the downside is that a site such as this can be seen by anyone. The power of suggestion can be be just as tragic as it can be beneficial. I am disturbed.:behindbar

    Oh, what a shame. I don't know if this will fall into the category of pornography or not but maybe if enough email something could be done about it.

    The site belongs to someone in France named Lindsay Ashford.

    My suggestion would be to complain through the host company, which is Go Daddy Software, Inc. They can be reached at abuse@godaddy.com

    I would NOT recommend contacting this Lindsay person. If you write once, he/she has your IP addy, and can attack your pc.

    I know WS'ers can get this site shut down to honor Amber's memory, and the memory of all who were hurt or killed by pedophiles.

    With HOPE, Lanie

    I just fired off an email to abuse@godaddy.com and I would encourage everyone here to do the same.

    :clap: Thank you, GatorMom

    Here's a page you might want to draw their attention to.

    The index on the left is particulary frightening.

    This manifesto details how happy this guy is to be in France vs. America, since in America, pedophilia is a crime.

    Here are his FAQ's

    Scary that this is even on-line.

    Prayers for our children, Lanie

    'I'm tired of being forced into the shadows by society'

    Sunday, February 22, 2004

    By RUSS FLANAGAN
    The Express-Times (nj)

    After nearly three decades of failed relationships and emotional discontent, Lindsay Ashford has finally found himself.

    Since he was a child, Ashford has always had a deep attraction to young girls but never acted on his urges or knew they had a name.

    It wasn't until five years ago, at the age of 30, that Ashford realized why his brief marriage and his countless flings across the United States and Europe always ended the same.

    Ashford is a pedophile.

    For most of his life, he has buried his emotions and masked his long-secreted attraction. It wasn't until recently that Ashford decided to throw off the shackles of pedophilia and shed light on what he says is a misunderstood "sexual orientation." Last year, he became perhaps one of the first pedophiles in the world to put his name and face on a Web site to publicly profess his love for children.

    "I am tired of being forced into the shadows by society," Ashford said recently in an e-mail interview. "I have committed no crime, therefore there is no good reason that I should have to hide myself. As long as pedophiles continue to hide, there is no chance of them ever being accepted."

    Ashford, an American expatriate living in the south of France, believes it is time the public learned pedophiles are different from child molesters in that they enjoy a romantic and emotional, but not always sexual, connection with children. He also believes it is time for a child rights movement that will give kids more say in how to live their lives.

    Ashford, 35, an unemployed business consultant, is part of a pioneering group of pedophiles from around the world who also believe pedophilia is not a sexual disorder that can be cured by medication and psychotherapy. He believes, rather, that it is a sexual orientation with which he was born, and therefore, cannot deny.

    This is a view shared by numerous pro-pedophilia groups around the world. In the United States, the most notorious may be the New York-based North American Man/Boy Love Association, or NAMBLA....

    I'm just now reading this, but thank God the link doesn't work today especially if it's what I think it is.

    Edit to say the main page doesn't work, but links to other pages still work. I read a little, but this is sickening to me.

    this is sick...............I am literally not going to be able to keep down my supper. I cannot imagine that there is nothing that can be done. I'm sending out feelers to see if a crime is being committed. HE IS luring little girls, letting them ask questions, sending emails............ he's looking.

    OMG OMG OMG................. why can't this guy spontaneously combust?~
