Bolded by me.... This statement by the mom is quite different than what court records indicate. I understand that the mom is grieving and there is always a tendency to not speak ill of someone murdered in such horrible circumstances, but it's not 100% accurate. You can read the case for termination of parental rights here: Beck v. Ark. Dep't of Human Servs. & Minor Children, 528 S.W.3d 869 | Casetext Search + Citator It gives an interesting picture of Crystal's life after she first moved to Utah. Her living situation was not stable at that time either and had been attained by unusual means. She had not completed her outpatient treatment and the court specifically says it was not convinced of her sobriety as she had repeatedly failed drug screens and attempted to manipulate the results of mandatory screens. I don't know whether any of her past or present behavior proved to be a risk factor for her murder. She definitely didn't deserve for this to happen to her - it needs to be solved no matter what she was involved in, past or present. However, it does no good to pretend that these circumstances of her life do not exist when establishing how she came to be a victim. They may or may not be significant; they cannot be ignored. MOO.
