    Unspeakably horrible.
    I hope you are okay. Sometimes when people don't think they feel things they really do, and it comes out later. I think it's good to talk about it and get it out of you.

    I think you are absolutely right Sue. Although the finding doesn't actually bother me, the fact that the media has only interviewed the suspect's family, neighbors and everyone else who doesn't really have a clue and just basically ignored the other side of the story does bother me a lot.

    Even though the police have everything they need, what kind of society is this that the media is more interested in the views of the suspect's family more than the victim's family, it is sad.

    Since I couldn't tell my side of the story on the news, I went to the news-site itself here and posted this comment to the storyon their comment forum, hopefully I will get a responce from Sara's family, if they want to talk. -

    "Hello, I am the person who found Sara (me and a friend) I do not know how to contact the family of Sara, if they want to talk with me I would be more than happy to. I have contacted both KXII and KTEN about an interveiw, but, I guess they don't want to hear both sides This really bothers me and I would like to talk with the family members of Sara, that is if they want to talk, off camera. I feel they have the right to know what I know. So maybe, just maybe, it might give some sort of ease or some sort of relief. I told the police everything I know, there will be nothing told that the police don't already know. The family will get more than the camera. I hate the fact that only one side of the tragedy is shown and if anyone can get my email to the family of the victim so they can have a choice whether to talk to me or not I would be grateful. My email is - bmoffer 'at' yahoo 'dot' com "



    There was more but, they had a limit on text, so I had to edit it to that.

    Chances are they took your email down-your about to get spammed to death if they didn't. You should remove it from here as well-I took it out of this post in case you want to remove it from the original.

    I understand your wanting to reach out to Sara's family-it really is horrible. Keep in mind what the police tell "us" on camera is usually a different conversation than the one they have in person. They may have told Sara's family how and where she was found. Because they do not release some information usually means they want all their ducks in a row before they move forward-way to many loopholes for the bad guys to slip through, or there is information that only the killer would know. It's also possible that you might now know something that seems benign but could clench the case.
    Because you had a conversation with the accused you may be called to testify-if you talk to the family now you could jeopardize the possibility of that testimony, which could put him away for the rest of his worthless life.

    Just some things to think about.

    You've done a really caring and courageous thing.
    Hope the family sees/hears about your offer and has a chance to hear your info.
    Keep us posted.
    P.S. I edited your email address to reduce the chance of spam.
    Changed @ to 'at' and . to 'dot'

    I agree, and I'll add that maybe consider getting this thread deleted in the best interest of the trial. Lawyers have a way of turning anything against you.

    Thank goodness for people like you, Chip.


    The girl's family may wish to speak to you, in time.
    With your email available to the general public in your community, you will get many thanks but don't forget there are mean people out there as well. His supporters may not have anything nice to say to you.

    Thank you for your concerns, BTW, the email I posted is one I made up just for this, it is not my real email addy.

    I am just so angry with all of this, I guess I just need to calm down a bit and take a deep breath. icon_rolleyes.gif

    It would be difficult to gear down after something like this.
    Maybe it would be best to not watch TV and stay away from all media so you can "breathe"

    Chip, it must be so frustrating to know so much, but able to tell so little.
    Let us know what happens. As an aside, the cousin of a friend of mine was
    murdered. The cops told the family a lot (perhaps too much) but the media
    had no idea that all that information had beens shared.
    The media just goes for the sensational, but it doesn't mean the family isn't
    taken into consideration by the police.

    Peggy's got a really good point

    the news puts out what they want to put out, it's RARELY the whole story

    I know this from experience....

    You should take a deep breath, I'm sure that this has affected you on some level (who wouldn't be affected?)

    You're a good guy Chip!

    Yeah, ya'll are right, I am not as angry as I was. The police has probably told the victims family more than they told the media and I am just going to leave it at that.

    Word gets around though, friends telling friends and so on, people been coming up and saying they heard I had a big weekend and are just shocked.

    Anyway, I am sure this will be talked about for years to come, not all the time but from time to time. And if it goes to trial, which it probably will, I am 99.9% sure my friend and I will be called in, we are the only ones that can tell our story, otherwise it will be hearsay.
