How many women gave a description of him, his vehicle, HIS ADDRESS for Christ's sake.........and it took over TWO years to get him?

Pro's won't report the abuse they suffer because their trade has been demonized.

Legalize it -- or at least overlook the act when they report abuse at the hands of creeps like Wilson.

The real criminals will continue to beat, kill, rob & destroy girls with impunity. Sex isn't a bad thing. Stop making it a crime & the workers will be safer!

The article refers to the victim as "Lane" in one place and "Smith" in other places. This paper is PATHETIC in ALL places.

"Kelly Smith's father, George Smith, said in 2007 that his daughter was an Erwin High graduate and played the flute in the school band. He remembered her as a bright student who could have done anything in life."

,, but she was 35 at the time of her death?

She was a 17th year senior. I think they kept her around for her 'flute' playing abilities.
You're an idiot. She was a mother and a daughter and was brutally murdered. I hope this guy gets the death penalty and it is carried out soon!

When I see stories like this, I think maybe pornography isn't so harmless after all.

I am sure the father meant she played the flute in high school and not in 2007. Read between the lines as most intelligent people do. Who wants to read dumb remarks from someone who has to add their two cents to everything written in the paper.

Let me give you a little reading lesson: "George Smith, said in 2007 that his daughter was an Erwin High graduate and played the flute in the school band."
George Smith is the speaker in this sentence. He said in 2007 that his daughter was a student at Erwin. That was the year he made the STATEMENT, not the year she was a student, you freak. Learn to read before you become a critic.

plenty of people watch pornography without murdering and dismembering people.

I could just as easily say I think maybe driving a pick up truck isn't so harmless after all.

You're comparing driving a pick-up truck and porn? Wow. Do a little research and get back to me.

Were these descriptions given two years ago? No. Kelly Smith was discovered two years ago. Think before you criticize the work of others.

This is scary! About a year and a half ago I was down town having drinks with my brother and he walked me back to my car. When I was pulling down coxe ave i was in the straight lane and there was a man in a gold truck in the turn lane. When the light changed he pulled ahead of me and blocked my car so that I could not pass him as I was stuck between his truck and a parking meter on the sidewalk. He kept trying to get my name and then he was trying to get me to come over into the gravel lot across the street to talk to him. This was the same guy! He had watched me get into my car and followed me. I called the police and he drove away. They just said that they would "look for him" even though I gave his liscense number. This is scary. Why did they take so long?

I figured whoever killed Kelly Smith was long gone. I am shocked (if it is the guy, which I think it is) that he has been right here in Asheville the whole time. Unbelievable. Would the cops have tried harder if she hadn't been a "prostitute"? She was also a human being, a mother and a daughter who made some bad choices. She didn't deserve to be murdered and cut into pieces! The cops should be ashamed. I have thought about her often since her body was discovered. So very tragic.

You have no idea what time and effort was devoted into Smith's murder. How about you just shut your trap!
