I’m new to WS but have refreshed this thread (and the first one) countless times over the past year hoping for any update about BW. I feel very affected by her case and desperately wish someone had done something to help her. It’s breaking my heart that she had plans to get away and get SaW and SW out her life - she was nearly 18. I’m of the opinion that SaW knew about the abuse. For her to come back over a text conversation to say she doesn’t believe her just doesn’t sit right. Even if she was lying surely you would have some doubt in your mind and not instantly rebut your daughter when she had disclosed something so serious. SaW threatened to kill her then she went missing in the immediately following days, I’m surprised she isn’t being charged with murder too anymore.
