It's looks like they may have found those two girls

  1. I just saw the news, and they found human remians in the backyard of the guy who they thought had kidnapped those girls.. His name is something Weaver, and he is also in jail for raping the GF of his own son!

    And get this...his own father is in prison for killing a couple and burying them in his backyard! Sad...just sad..

    I usually don't watch either anymore. But I was surfing, and came across breaking news. They had the ex-wife of this give on, and seems he has a young son also. His mom said she couldn't be around her son today...as the family is broken up about what was found..

    I'm sitting here 20 miles from it and watching it happen "live".

    I am really just relieved (if) hedid it so we know who ever is not still out there...and I am glad that the parents will have closure.

    I live in Portland, so it was live; it's all over the news, and will be all night and tomorrow. The guy's name is Ward Weaver.

    They have only found one set of remains so far, in a shed on Ward Weaver's property,with the help of search dogs. He lived near the girls, and the girls knew him. He is 39 years old.

    The reason they searched his property again is that his 20 something year old son reported him (Ward Weaver) for raping his (the son's) 19 year old girlfriend last week.

    When he went to the police, he said he knew his dad (Ward Weaver) had killed the girls, and they just might want to dig up a concrete slab that he poured in his (Ward Weaver's) backyard in March, after the second girl disappeared.

    One of his ex-wives had gone to the FBI with that same information in March, but they apparently ignored her. She was at the scene live today. She was outraged, and let it be known that he had tried to kill her before, as well.

    The other ex-wife still thinks he is innocent.

    They will probably use some kind of fluoroscopy type equipment tomorrow to try to visualize through the concrete slab before they dig, to see if they can visualize human remains.

    They were even showing footage of people placing signs, over the past couple of months, over the slab that said "Dig me up." The FBI and the police have no real comments, other than that they "followed procedure."

    No one has positively identified the remains as those of Ashley Pond or Miranda Gaddis yet, so keep their families in your prayers, and also pray for whoever the victim might be, if it isn't one of them.

    Remember, they have previously found 2 sets of human remains during this investigation that were not the girls.

    I guess you all have seen the coverage on the national news that both girls' remains have been positvely identified. Miranda Gaddis was found first, in the shed, and Ashley Pond was found in a barrel under the concrete slab. They had to be identified through dental records. They have not released the cause of death on either one as yet.

    There have been candlelight vigils at the scene, and there will be a community memorial service in Oregon City Thursday night.

    Please, everyone, keep their families in your prayers, as well as the souls of Miranda and Ashley, who never even got to experience their first day of high school.

    Makes one believe in capital punishment.

    Thank your for the update..and no I haven't heard or read a thing. I can not even start to imagine the pain of the parents, family, and friends... How very horrible, and so very sad..

    Its just a horrible story..........

    There has been a chain link fence put up around the property, now decorated with balloon, flowers, and posters along with many lit candles on the ground.

    Poor families

    Yeah, the chain link fence is just beautiful; packed with flowers, teddy bears, angel figurines, etc. etc. I hope it provides some small measure of comfort to their families. They have suffered enough. They have been out there, and the crowd graciously parted to let them view the memorial fence privately. People feel helpless and want to do something, ANYTHING, to show that they care. Oregonians are good people.

    One thing that is in the news here that may not be mentioned nationwide:

    The son's (Ward Weaver's son) girlfriend, who was raped by Ward Weaver, is ALSO the mother of his (Ward Weaver's) 2 year old grandchild. She (the girlfriend) had to go screaming from the house, naked for a tarp which she grabbed as a makeshift covering.

    I shudder to think what HER fate would have been, had she not broken away in time.

    Also, Ward Weaver has a DAUGHTER that is the same age as the murdered girls, and who went to school and was friends with them. I pray that she moves out of the community with her mother, and starts at a new school somewhere. Her father has changed HER life, forever, too.

    What a sadistic bastard. May his soul rot in hell.

    I wish the police would let one of them good ol' boys from Oregon City at him while they look away for one minute. It wouldn't even take that long, and Ward Weaver would become Satan's problem.
