    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. Unless the minors are the victims, please do not post their name, only their initials.

    Thanks,

    Cat

    Lena Lunsford Conaway's murder trial starts today Monday, April 16th, 2018. Her 3-year-old adorable little girl Aliayah has never been found. Aliayah has been missing September 2011. In 2016 law enforcement arrested Lunsford Conaway. She is charged with four different counts including the murder of a child by a parent. She faces life in prison if convicted on all charges.

    If you feel certain posts need to be brought over from thread #13 please alert on the thread and one of the mods or myself will move it over.

    I can't believe how long it has been. Poor Aliayah.

    I'm very glad they charged the lesser offenses in this case.
    I think that makes it more likely they will convict her of something.

    Leslie Rubin from WCHS TV is live tweeting @ #LeslieRubinWCHS. She has been superb to cover this case from the start.
    Apparently there's an issue with one of the jurors and the court is recessed. According to prosecutors Lena was offered several plea deals and turned them all down.

    Thanks to those who can post updates here. I'll be checking in as I can. I only recently learned of this case and Aliayah's sweet face breaks my heart.

    Prosecutors say children Kiara, 11 at the time, and Destiny Lunsford, 9, are the witnesses in the case. They say they saw Lena hit Aliayah in the head. Said her head felt “squishy” when they touched it.

    From Leslie:
    When the girls went to wake up Aliayah the next morning they say she wasn’t breathing and wasn’t responsive. Prosecutor says Lena put Aliayah in a hamper with clothes and took her to their van. Eventually drove to wooded area and disposed the body.
