As i type this i feel very angry,hurt and tearful. His first court appearance was today. Last Saturday the mother left the child downstairs with a babysitter, while she went to work. The step father went and told the sitter he was taking the child out. He then left with the child. Later he returned home without her(Hope was her name).The mother ask "where is she" he said"she is downstairs where you left her". The baby sitter said "he took he out". The police got involved, they arrested him on Saturday night. On Monday night he told them where he left her body. He broke her spine, stabbed her 3 times and slit her throat. They are now sending the girl's blood to the U.K. for test to determine weather or not she was sexually molested /raped then killed. Everyone believes he raped her than killed her. He takes the child out with him very often. The mother never saw it coming she trusted him.So what do you think really happened?

Well. My prayers go out to the mother and her family. I have a young child around the same age myself and if anyone even laid a hand on them I'd probably die of sadness. There is a good possibility that she was sexully abused. I'm not sure why they need the blood, it should be determinded enough from the body itself. (I watch too much crime TV) Some people you just can't tell if they're good or bad and its sad really. He might have had a violent past he hid. Which is why investigations and background checks to a world of good for some people. My mom started dating and my sister went to my uncle who is a detective and asked him to run background checks and every guy she started dating.

this happens way to much and the sad thing is so many get away with it. they plead nuts, or something. that or the jails are crowded and they do 5 years and get out. that is the way it is in the usa. personally i think if they do it and there is no doubt then they should just be shot. dont wait out a long time for us tax payers to give them tv, food, ac etc. just when court is done take them out back and bang. people are so wrong now days. i may sound cold but i see it all the time. kill a kid , rape a kid , even an adult have them on tape whatever no way to get out of it. know they did it and in 5 years after we have paid for there life in jail they are out getting gvt help and going on with life. poeple are good at hiding things. i cant blame the mom. i mean look at john gacey, and so many more lived a normal life with a family and was a serial killer. it is sad that it happens but the truth is it does and so many times.

Yes it made me feel sick too. What can make a person do an innocent child such wickedness? I want them to give him the life sentence even hang him if possible. i think he has been interfering with the child every time he took her out with him. What do you think?
