    Please continue here and remember the rules. You can find them right here:

    The Rules - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community

    AND don't overlook these!!!!

    Victim Friendly

    Websleuths is a victim friendly forum. Attacking or bashing a victim is not allowed. Discussing victim behavior, good or bad is fine, but do so in a civl and constructive way and ONLY IF IT IS RELEVANT TO THE CASE. Additionally, sleuthing family members that are not suspect is not allowed. Don't make random accusations or post personal information (even if it is public) like parking tickets, address, or first and last names of all their relatives and their neighbors. Also, never "bash" or attack them, or accuse them of involvement. However that does not mean that family members cannot come into discussion as the facts and issues of the case are discussed.


    Social Networks

    Regarding Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, and other social networking or blog websites: Links may be used to direct posters to view something on a social networking page. But postings on social networking sites are not considered fact; they are rumor. Copying and pasting, or taking screen caps, directly from these pages is not allowed. Paraphrasing is okay. (Exception: If the Twitter or Facebook post belongs to a verified news station, it may be copied. But a link should still be provided.)

    Also, social networking pages may only be linked if they are directly related to a case, i.e. the victim or suspect. We don't want to post to someone's mother, brother, employer, milkman, or postal carrier just because they know the main player. We also NEVER link to minor's pages (unless they are the victim). And be sure that the page actually belongs to the person being discussed. Do not link to someone if you are not 100% sure it is the correct person. And if a social networking is set to private and you get in the back way, you may not post what you find. Private means private!

    MINORS: Websleuths.com™ does not allow the naming of, or photographs of, minors (children under the age of 18) on the Site unless the child is a missing or deceased person or where law enforcement has identified the minor as a perpetrator of a crime and the minor will be tried as an adult. If a missing child is found and it is learned that such minor was the victim of child exploitation, references to the child’s name and likeness will be removed, and further posting of such information will not be allowed.

    Thanks,

    Salem

    post personal information about the parents beyond what has been reported in MSM

    DO NOT sleuth any individual who has not been indicated as a person of interest per MSM.

    DO NOT suggest that any individual is the perpetrator unless indicated as a person of interest per MSM.

    I can't believe I was out of the office for two days in a row and the only "breaking news" is that his bond is now $1M??????

    http://www.wfaa.com/news/local/Bond...murderer-of-Saginaw-6-year-old-217788841.html

    I was sure that being away from my laptop would result in major breaks in the case. So much for that theory......

    Other than the story this morning where GG said he never met him & now doesn't want to, and apparently he has a trach tube, is there much else?

    You know something else that has occurred to me. If TH did such a haphazard job in getting rid of Alanna why wouldn't they have found more of his DNA on her? You would think that his DNA would have been all over her. But if I remember correctly they only listed in two separate places. I know that this all they needed, but I find that odd. IMO

    Good point. I was thinking if the belt was leather, there would seem like there should be more DNA on it.

    To come in on the first page of a new thread tonight....and be slapped in the face with Alanna's beautiful, angelic photo...her poor family. I cannot imagine the heartbreaking loss they have been dealt. To wake up each morning only to realize the sunshine has been stolen from your life...how do you even go on? My heart is with her parents, all 3 of them, and her siblings, grandparents and everyone who loved this sweet child. It's things like this that force me to question the ways of this universe.

    Well maybe that is all the listed in the Arrest Warrant. I am sure there must be.
    That would only be logical.

    Originally, I thought it might have been because of one of the men he said he'd had sex with. Most teens don't consider guys their own age to be "men", that's usually (in my experiences) used for a male who is older than you are. I thought an older man who had abused TH for years was there with him, and cleaned up enough to get rid of any evidence that he had been involved (but didn't care about evidence against TH.) He also could have taken her to get her out of the area, but just dumped her in the first spot he didn't think he'd be seen so he could be back home before they started searching for her.

    I'm not too keen on the idea anymore because he could have just left her there and gone home without taking a chance on being caught with her if he had removed all evidence. I'm also sure LE has talked to anyone whose vehicle was seen leaving the area between the time of her disappearance and the discovery of her body. Which leaves me back at - why did he do such a lousy job of cleaning up and leave her in a place where she'd be found so quickly?

    Maybe it wasn't the named perp's DNA. Maybe an accomplice?

    Your post has me pondering.

    I am guessing because he used some sort of liquid to get rid of DNA on her body.

    I think you might have gotten your stories mixed up.Besides I don't think washing her body would get rid of the evidence where it was found.

    According to the arrest warrant, her entire body was covered in this unknown liquid, maybe that destroyed DNA. The DNA they did get was from inside her (I'm so sorry) and on the buckle of the belt. I'm assuming he thought he got rid of ALL the DNA and missed the belt. MOO

    Since it's a slow day in this case......

    Sorry if this was covered earlier, I saw a nurse post about tracheotomy & likelihood of PEG tube.....and from Ing's statement in this article, it sounds like he is still on ventilator (not breathing on his own):

    http://www.star-telegram.com/2013/07/29/5038936/arlington-officer-shot-during.html

    So, I googled some info:

    Tracheostomy
    http://www.clevelandclinic.org/thoracic/Airway/Tracheostomy.htm
    http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/tracheostomy/MY00261

    PEG procedure/tube
    http://my.clevelandclinic.org/servi..._percutaneous_endoscopic_gastrostomy_peg.aspx

    Mechanical ventilators
    http://www.thoracic.org/clinical/cr...ices-and-procedures/mechanical-ventilator.php

    Other than crayons (tee-hee), sounds like somebody is going to be alone with his own thoughts for quite some time.
