    This case has been strangely quiet from the start IMO.

    Bumping for Riley.

    Wonder if her mom and brothers are still living in that house?

    I agree. People from the area have said there probably wouldn’t be accountability, and I so hope that’s not true. :( This case is very messed up

    I’m curious about why you feel that the case is “ quiet” and “messed up”.

    The defendant is under arrest, he’s in jail, the grand jury only meets twice a year in these rural counties, so the system will play out like it’s supposed to.

    Sorry I realize that my post wasn’t very clear at all. It’s not the legal case that I find messed up, it’s what happened to Riley that is so completely sickening.
    I was just agreeing with another poster that this thread is quiet. Maybe it’s just the slower pace of rural counties that makes it seem like nothing is happening, but I just hope justice is served.

    Ita.

    There are others who should be held accountable; imo.
    So many questions about the mother and others who knew what this man was.
    There is no way they didn't know he was unstable at best.

    JMO. I doubt it was the first time Riley had been “scared” or “afraid” of him.

    He’s asleep downstairs at 10:30pm when her mother gets home. She doesn’t wake him or the boys up. Her mom sees Riley’s light on but doesn’t pop in to say goodnight on her way to her own bedroom.
    Suddenly he’s awake and in her room around 11pm.

    ^^^ The way you posted that... chilling.
    Ita.
    Like any predator waiting to kill someone who is just walking by in the street.
    I still have doubts as to whether 'mom' went straight to bed.... oblivious.
    But that's all I'm going to say about that.

    <shiver> That's just plain scary, to me, but I am a scaredy-cat anyway, but still...
    In the house, creeping around... Nightmare material, and yes, IMO, it is one.

    Sorry if I frightened anyone! I was trying to lay out the base facts as has been reported on here from msm. Seems like there are some missing pieces to this case.

    Re. the bolded portion : For sure.
    And there are those we can't sleuth ...... outside of looking at what is on public record.

    i really hate to show up late and ask a question that has more than likely been covered far earlier in the thread..

    but is the general consensus that this call was a pocket dial to RCs BF and that AM had found the phone on his attempt call just before 4am and brought it with him to work?

    Really quiet here in Berkeley springs. Not a word, not even a rumor. Not a soul at the home of RC, since the incident. This is the usual. It'll just sort of fizzle away and be talked about up in some small article in the back of the newspaper.

    I believe so.

    ^^^ That's probably true but very disheartening.

    Sick of so-called "mothers" who bring predators and addicts around their children. :(

    Being a West Virginian myself, I feel like this case has a lot more going on than what we know. There are so many unanswered questions still, IMO. What about the mother? What was going on in that house? Who all KNEW she was afraid of him? ETC. I am very upset it has just sort of fizzled out in the media and everything. Her story, the whole story, needs to be told because maybe it might help one of these other women to think twice before bringing these sort of men into their kid's lives. It is pretty much ALWAYS the mom's/aunt's/grandmother's boyfriend anymore and it's sickening.

    The odd couple grandparents (magistrate/drug dealer) boggles my mind.

    Thanks for a local perspective. It seems shocking to me that this has garnered such little media attention in general.

    When you say this is usual, do you mean crimes in general in the area or particularly this defendant and the family?

    Just about Everytime someone in a prominent family gets into some trouble, people start asking questions, getting pissed, then you don't hear about it again. Justice will not be served here.
