missing girl hoax. Have any of you seen this?

  1. http://www.cnn.com/2003/US/Midwest/0...irl/index.html

    This is the article about a 6 y/o missing since '86. This woman called her parents up claiming to be the missing girl, but she was lying. This is really sad and cruel. There is a video as well.

    This is probably headline news, but this is the first I've heard of it.

    How awful.

    That is unconscionable. And the poor father not being told until the news conference was underway. What posessed that woman to be so cruel.

    That happened in my state. Aren't people just total whackjobs?

    What in the WORLD would cause someone to do that? And is there any way she can get longer than four years in jail when they catch her? Surely providing false information to police, etc., should be punishable.

    Evil, pure evil.

    And it is not the first time she has done this kind of thing.

    Mt heart truly goes out to the family of the missing girl. That was a very cruel trick to play on someone. My heart broke to peices when I saw the father cry on TV. I hope they find that woman and do a little more than jail for her. That crazy lunatic needs to give some answers as to why she did that to this family. She is very mean spirited and cruel.

    Word is she's already grooming her defense. It's going to be not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect. If yaask ask me the only thing that's defective is her soul. What a loser. WW.

    The judge in the case just set bail at $100,000. Personally, I think it should be a hell of a lot more than that!! Anyway, her lawyer had the stones to claim that he didn't think his client thought she was doing anything illegal. What a joke!! Hope they throw the book at both of them. WW.

    Yeah, like that's supposed to excuse or or something. I wonder if she "knew" she was doing something cruel and despicable.

    I've got a feeling monetary gain is part of these people's plan too.

    Scam artists.
