Back on October 5th there was an amber alert on facebook about a young girl from Colorado who was missing after she was supposed to walk home.  Then on Oct 8th I thought I saw the same picture on an amber alert again, but soon realized it was a new one from my hometown of Cody, WY.  In  both, young girls, one 10 and one 11 went missing.  The Cody girl was taken from the front of the library after a man asked her and  friends to help him find a young black lab puppy.  She got close enough he waved a gun and talked her into the vehicle an left the friends.  She was discovered later that day walking down a mountain road outside Cody, The police report circulated said she had been sexually assaulted and released.  I do not know if there is any connection but I wondered at the time and now this article says they are still looking for the Colorado girl and mentions that the cody suspect has not been found yet.  It asks people to spread the story, so here I am

telling you to be on the lookout

The missing Colorado girl has been forefront in the news. She still has not been found. A body was found about 4 miles from her school, but authorities said it isn't her and is not related to her disappearance.

As time goes on, it isn't looking good for finding this little girl alive. I cannot imagine the terror she felt or feels, and the grief her family is experiencing of not knowing where little Jessica is.

They haven't discovered the man who abducted the Cody girl at gunpoint and raped her either but because of the gun are advising caution if a middle aged man with reddish blond hair and a white SUV is seen

A link to a story that she bloodied her abductors nose is in the Cody enterprise site and is chilling. She was dumped in 30 degree weather on a muddy mountain road, in thin clothing, 4 miles from any home. She was in grizzly territory and she said the vehicle only had the two fron seats but lots of pictures of naked little girls.

Nope, not according to this link http://www.boston.com/news....ry.html

"CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire police say a car impounded in Portsmouth on Thursday morning has no link to the disappearance of a 10-year-old Colorado girl one week ago.

The Buick station wagon bearing Colorado license plates was towed from behind a Portsmouth shopping plaza.

The car was one of hundreds of leads being pursued in the search for Jessica Ridgeway, of Westminster, Colo., who was last seen by her mother walking to school Oct. 5.

Portsmouth police said the car matches the description of the one a resident of Dexter, Maine, spotted, carrying a passenger who resembles Jessica.

‘‘At this time we are confident that the vehicle and the child that was the source of the tip have nothing to do with the Colorado case,’’ Portsmouth Deputy Police Chief Corey MacDonald said."

but wish they did have a concrete link



here is the link to the Cody Story

http://www.codyenterprise.com/article....f4.html

and photos of the car from that case

Seems they have now identified the dismembered remains as the missing 10 yr old girl.  Now, they are looking for the perp.

I heard it on the news a bit earlier. Such a sad ending. May little Jessica rest in peace.

I hope they catch the monster who did this, and show no mercy.

Putting aside the particulars of these incidents for a moment, it is difficult to imagine how insane one must have to be to engage in such behavior.  Try to imagine yourself hurting a child in anyway for no reason other than your own pleasure.  Seems impossible to me.  But yet, there are people who can cross that line and not only hurt but torture a child as well.

The brain of such a person must be deformed or defective in some way.  And if we ever discover exactly what defect or deformity exists in such people, would we take proactive steps if the defect or deformity could not be removed?

It's quite possible that the perp has a perfectly normal brain, indestinguishable from other perfectly normal brains.  His soul, on the other hand, surely is inhabited by darkness and evil.

If you actually believe that you can examine the human brain and determine a criminal/diabolical component, then consider yourself right up to speed with the the most advanced scientific methods of the 1920's and 1930's.  They tried; they failed.  You still fail.
