    Thanks for your post. I am a preschool teacher, parent of a child with ADHD, and have ADD myself. And I am appreciative of your sensitivity and your experience.

    And 'amen' to being your child's advocate. That is the way it should be ALWAYS. :seeya:

    Do we know for sure that the dog hair was matched? The last I remember (from the murder warrant), they had sent hair taken from the Holder's dogs and pet hair found with Alanna to the FBI for comparison.

    The article you linked is from the same afternoon as the one we had last night that said earlier reports were in error and that TH HASN'T yet been formally charged nor bond set on the murder charge -- though yours was updated a bit after the time stamp on this one:

    I still wonder where the truth lies.

    I tried googling and googling. It was not my friend,

    I have bookmarked it now.

    THANK YOU! Every person should read this. If your child's school is not using this type of approach, it should be.

    I just want to make the world do this.

    If we started this in schools right away, it would make a huge difference.

    And if we parents used this approach at home, it would make a huge difference.

    Will the father have to pay child support from the time TH was born? How does that work?

    Does TH have any siblings?
    What time does TH's mom arrive home from work and what does she do for a living?

    If you go to page 1 of this thread, you can hunt around and find some links to some background info. I know that there is a who's-who sort of thing that may answer some of your questions.

    For some of them, though, we just don't know the answers yet.

    None yet, that I'm aware of. And we absolutely can't discuss further here.

    What about the kitchen chair? I missed that. And what is blurting? I have never heard that term used before. TIA

    bbm: Beyond what we discussed last night, I thought of another reason why the murder charge may not have been formally brought yet -- and that is, it MAY be they do not want to start any type of legal clock ticking on that charge until TH's condition improves somewhat.

    I have wondered about these items from the SW:

    # 8 Purple/Pink/Green Timex Indigo Watch with purple band/Pink & Green Flowers
    # 116 pink shirt long sleeve
    # 143 small pink sock
    # 153 1 pair boy's denim pants

    Could these have been Alanna's clothes?

    IIRC LD said that she was wearing a pink shirt. Her socks could have matched (small pink sock)! The boy's denim pants could have been jeans that she was wearing.

    LD Hummingbird...Do you remember if Alanna had on long sleeves and long pants? Wasn't the weather chillier that normal that day?

    Also do you think the watch was hers?

    Dear God...Please Bless the Family & Friends of Your Angel Alanna!

    The search warrant for the Holder residence specified they were to look for and seize one. "Kitchen chair" is all it states, so we don't know any further identifiers. The warrant return does not indicate that they took one, though.

    Blurt in the sense of to speak out without thinking.

    No siblings to mum have been mentioned in MSM, so no I don't think so. The father may have other children (I think he does) but I guess that's irrelevant to TH. No idea on the rest sorry.

    The search warrant calls for them to search for a watch close to that description, IIRC, and they apparently found one, so I think it has been surmised here that it is Alanna's -- not sure if that has been confirmed in MSM or by LDHummingbird, maybe so.

    The watch was hers, yes. They'd been looking for it specifically, apparently. It was still a high of 81 that day so pretty warm.

    Yes,
    Tourette syndrome is more appropriate in the way blurting was used here.

    MOO

    Good question! Thanks for pulling me up on that. I will try to find out later today when I get home.

    Absolutely fantastic suggestion! Thank you!

    Re, what she was wearing that day: IIRC, a pink tee and shorts. Don't know the color of the shorts. Still not 100% clear whether those were found yet or not.

    (There was reference to her "clothes" being wet when she was found, but she was found wearing purple panties.....ugh, just had a thought - hope that was what she left in based on SW @ TH's - anyway.......nothing clear as to whether "clothes" meant only the panties or that the rest of her outfit was with her).
