    I can't believe some of the things that r being said. Just fyi my daughter is 9 and developing already. Girls start developing early where as boys start later. As far as pic poses my daughter and all of her friends take pics like that all the time its part of just being girls. Think back to the smart case, she could have been found b4 hand but was terrified to speak. If this poor girl saw her motherget murdered she is prob in complete shock...

    Come on folks, she probably went with him willingly, IMO. Are you people that d amn nieve not to see the truth here? Who knows how much was planned before the murder, but this was no abduction, IMO. Yea I know, you want to believe only the stuff that you're hoping is right, but in this case you really need to take the blinders off, IMO.

    This girl had more going on with this guy than is being released. I am willing to bet that he told her stuff like she was better than her mother ever was. I'm sure he used this girl and told her just what she wanted to hear and seduced her. She's no angel but she's only 12. Even if she were raised in the streets she was an easy mark. And I'm sure that somewhere in her under developed mind she thinks he loves her.

    It doesn't matter if this little girl left with this child predator willingly, she's only 12 and was munipulated, period.

    To all of you sick people that honestly think that this innocent 12 year old girl has willingly gone with this murderer, ya'll are seriously disturbed. AND if you're judging her for a damn picture, get over it, WOW she made a face in the picture and now she's all of sudden "a child in a grown womans body" NO, she looks so young. Also, to anyone who thinks that they both were pursuing a relationship, I don't think that a child that young could honestly have any kind of attraction to such an older man. Maybe like Johnny Depp or Brad Pitt or even little girls these days, the Jonas Brothers, but seriously? Look at that guy. I don't think she's trying to pursue any kind of relationship with him. Get over yourself people, you're sitting here calling her a sick person for even being there with him when she was obviously taken, right after her mother was killed! You all have the dirty minds!!!

    Regardless of the situation, it is fantastic that the girl has been found. The facts will unfold.
