Why 'Thank God'? Where was God when she was being killed?

They most likely did, they've been hot and heavy on this since Wednesday night when it happened.

@fishtiger58 I have a problem...I just saw a 'Praise God they have him!' post, and I want to say 'But where was God when she was killed?'

Kind of a scary looking dude. Will he be competent to stand trial? Or is he genuinely crazy?

He's got a fairly active rap sheet, several Order of Protection's filed against him...an agg battery...looks like just bad news.

@JolietJake But rape and murder of a child? That's a whole different thing.

@TheHorse Someone alleges he was in Anna state mental hospital several years ago for sexually assaulting a nephew, but that could just be scuttlebutt

I hope they won't take long to find out who is guilty. This guy could be still innocent after all. We get many innocent people arrested here, some confess just to protect others. Sabrina. That makes me shiver.

He's already been tried and convicted on facebook...

@JolietJake I don't get how people want to work as judges for free on Facebook.

@JolietJake I haven't checked. I hope justice is served, either way.

We are supposed to presume them innocent until proven guilty...but I agree

@JolietJake what's important is he is out of the streets, hope he is ready to be preyed upon inside prison

Guess he suffocated her, not sure if it was before or after the rape

There was quite a bit of criticism of the local police the past few days because there are a handful of unsolved murders here, but I felt they would find this one quickly

Nope, not really. Didn't think it would, regardless of what many people were saying.
