    What an absolutely horrid ordeal! You're a very good and strong man to be able to handle all this as well as you do. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the poor girl...nobody deserves such an ending of their life. God and the court will decide the best way to deal with the murderer.

    Bless you Chip for being such a great guy!

    Parsley, your right, he didn't try too hard to cover it up. While we were waiting for the police, all I thought was that he was trying to buy a few days to get out of state or mexico or something, she was too easy to find.

    Wow Chip! Thank God you were able to find her body-there will be some peace for her family in that. It's just awful on so many levels!

    OK, I would like some feedback on this - Since the Police are not giving out any information and the news is limited to what the police tell them, I would like to find the girls family and talk with them, maybe I could give some kind of closer that would help. I could actually tell them the details that the police have and that it is probably an open and shut case.

    The news has interveiwed the suspects family and they are behind him 100% that he is inocent, they even don't know the details and they are hoping the police find the "real" killer. At least with my story, the family can be 99.9% sure that the police have the right person.

    Wouldn't that help them in knowing?? Instead waiting for a trail that could be months from now.

    I have talked to the police about disclosing information to the media and they said just be careful and not speculate, just tell the facts and it is OK.

    So...Should I try to contact the girls family or not?

    I'm surmising that law enforcement should be able to communicate with the victim's family in a professional method and offer counselors to help them deal with their loss. Your behavior, based on your gut feeling, has been spot on. Should the professionals not perform adequately in a timely fashion, it may be appropriate for you to act again.

    Chip, I'm so glad you and your friend found the girl. I'm so sorry for her family and it will be very hard to bury her and then go through the trial. I would suggest that you wait until after the funeral and before the trial. Just my gut feeling.

    I would also suggest to you that you watch your back, and tell your friend to watch his back. If the guy's family is behind him 100%, not even knowing what happend, things could get ugly. Just sayin'.

    It's so sad to see how little life means to some humans.

    Just make sure that any discussion you have with the media or the victim's family does not jeopardize the prosecutor's case. Maybe you could talk with the family with the prosecutor there.

    Be careful too about your physical safety. We don't want anything happening to you.

    Hi Chip - from reading the story you have told, I don't think it would be wise to contact the family just yet. The "murderer" is presumed innocent until proven guilty. I know you mean well with wanting the family to have closure, but be careful not to interfere with justice. I would sure hate for this person to go free over something done/said by you or your friend. I applaud you for trusting your instincts in the first place and checking that pile. God forbid if it had been lit.

    Yes I understand all your concerns, but I would not make any accusations or anything that could possibly interfere with the case. The police already told me it is ok to talk about it as long I am careful not to assume anything, which I would not. I will only tell what I actually saw with my own eyes, not anything else.

    I just feel bad for the family of the girl, only thing they are showing on the news is the suspect's family expressing that he did not do it, it has to be hard on her family, especially when niether family knows the facts.

    If I did talk with the family, the only things I would say is what I told the police, and the police already said that would be OK.

    As far as my own safety, if the truth did come out, the truth is the truth, I am not to blame just because I am the one that found her, it could put some ease or end of confusion with his family also. Is it right that they are not to come up with their own conclusion based on real facts other than just his side of the story, don't they also need to know both sides?

    I am definately in a delima.

    It's kind of funny (well, not funny but you know) Trying to decide whether or not to speaak up is more bothering to me that actually finding the body.

    I feel it is my duty to at the very least, to talk to the girls family or give them the option of talking to me. If they don't want to talk then I will leave it alone, but if they do, I feel I should. If it were my family member I would want to talk. Maybe it could lessen the pain now instead of waiting for who knows how long till the trial.

    And if I did talk to the family instead of the news, then who else is to know, it would be inbetween me and the family instead of to the whole world.

    If the police said it was okay to talk to the family, then I say okay too.
    You are such a compassionate and caring guy that I know you could
    bring them some comfort.

    I think if you have checked with the Police and adhere to their guidelines it is a very compassionate thing to do. I think I would give them the option though as their grief might be as much as they can handle at the moment.
    I do also understand the perpetrators family being in denial. I would just hate to believe that one of my brothers was capable of such an act. icon_sad.gif

    I agree with K9.... I wouldn't talk to the news, in case anything you may say the defendants attorney could use to discredit your testimony. You my friend are in a tough situation I am sure.... please be careful (thinking of pushback from the family of the accused)

    Mikey, the police are not releasing any info exept that she was found in a wooded area and clues led them to the boyfriend.

    Peggy, the police has given me the okk to talk, they only asked me to not make my own assumsions, which I won't. The main reason for wanting to talk to the family is because the news has interviewed friends and family of the suspect and they all play claim to his innocence and no-one has the other side of the story.

    I truly believe that the family of the girl should at least have the choice to speak with me or not. I can give them my side of the story. If they do not want to talk then so be it, the case will rest until the trial.

    Thank you all for your feedback, and I would also like any more feedback anyone has to give, I will read them all. Thank you all.

    Thank you K9 and Chrissy, yes it will be up to the family if they want to talk, I will not make things worse by demanding. The family of the girl is who I am actually thinking about, if they do not want to talk, then I will leave it alone, I just do not know how to contact them, I will have to call the 2 news ancors and ask them how to.
