I didn't say there were any good choices, but had she not wanted to live with him:
* Talk to the police and try to get into protective custody.
* Get a job and live on your own
* Live with other friends/relatives
* Live on the street
There is always a choice, and I have to assume she made the best one at the time.
Ok, let's break this down ...

* talking to the police --- since she didn't have any real proof of anything, just hunches, this wouldn't have done anything.
* get a job & live on your own --- sorry, but at 16 she needs to be in school ... also, do you have any idea how difficult that is for a 16 yr old to do? And how many are truly ready for that kind of responsibility?
* other friends and relatives --- what makes you so sure there were any other options here?
* live on the street --- are you CRAZY?! You would actually tell a 16 yr old girl to live on the street?!

Sorry, but I think she made the best choice she could given her circumstances. I just wish her the best of luck as this has to be very difficult to deal with.

Wow, you dont have a clue. I am fairly certain that if a man murders his wife he has an abusive side. This could be both physical and mental. Once the young girl feels she has no options and he is constantly re-enforcing this too her and then throw in the fear of physical abuse, she probably felt she had no choice but to stay there. This is a typical battered wife/children syndrome.

Feeling like you have no choice and having no choice are two different issues.

Perhaps it is a matter of semantics, but given her age and situation (see the above comment about abuse) I doubt she was able to see any other (viable) option at that particular time. Those choices are the ones we tend to see with our 20/20 hindsight. And if a "choice" isn't viable, is it really a choice or option?

What happened to the other sister??
The other sister is fine. She is coping as well as she can, just like everyone else. We are re-living this whole nightmare. I am glad to see all of the attention that this case is getting. The more people who know the better. We want people to know what an animal Rod Boesel really is. He goes to court on 3-5-07 to make his plea. Please keep our family in prayers. Thank you and GOD BLESS

ok. let me tell you my feelings on this whole shebang..firstly i wouldn'nt classify rod as an animal. If he was such an animal he'd not felt any remorse over the death of his exwife. noone saw the drinks he would consume to chase the pain away, or the tears he
did shed at night. i firmly believe this was an accident. he never spoke a mean word of donna. lets face it at 22 yrs old where wher her parents at to let their daughter marry or even sleep with a convict almost twice her age anyhow? he musnt been too big of an animal to laydown and bear 3 children with him. lets face it..she bit off a lil more than she could chew and when she wanted out, he was deeply in love w her, y wouldnt he be? he had a trophie on his arm. im not saying what he did was right but iam saying accidents happen. y would he confesss atALL IF IT WERENT EATING HIM ALIVE...HOW MANY YEARS DID HE GET AWAY SCOT FREE....AS FAR AS THE KIDS..NO THEY DIDNT HAVE A CHOICE BUT I WILL SAY THIS, THERIR MOTHERS FAMILY DIDNT DO THEM ANY JUSTICEE..OH YES, THEY HAD MONEY, O YES THEY PRETTY MUCH ABBANDOND THEM UNTIL THEY WERE OLD ENUF TO CARE FOR THEMSELVES...THEN THEY TRY TO RUSH THIS GOOD GUY/BAD GUY STUFF....THEY SHOULD OF STEPPED UP ALOT SOONER AND MAYBE THEY WOULD HAVE GIVEN THESE KIDS SOME HOPE FOR THEIR FUTURE...NOW ONES A TWO ARE DRUG ADDICTS AND ONE CANT STAY OUTTA PRISON...THE ONE THAT STAYED GOOD KEEPS HAVINH BABIES BY OTHER MEN BUT TRIES TO STAY ON THE STRAIGHT AND NARROW...SO REMEMBER, NOONE IS PERFECT, LET JESUS DO THE JUDGING!!!!

To those of u judging and asking why she stayed with him,this is her father were talking about!! Do u know how hard it would be for her to turn him in when he was the only family she really had?? But she did it so she could let her mom R.I.P. even if it meant risking her not having a place to stay!! Nobody has walked in her or her siblings shoes to pass judgement!! She's a very strong,loving,& caring person when it comes to the people she loves & for her to have the choice of turning her father in was probably one of the hardest things she would have to do but she did it cuz she knew what was right & what was wrong!! She was only 3 yrs old when this happened & when she was old enough to ask questions, she did! U guys should be showing how much respect u have for her instead of asking silly questions! Didn't ur mother ever teach u "if u don't have anything nice to say then don't say nothing at all"?? U guys should be ashamed of urselves for being so ignorant on a subject like this!! God don't like ugly so don't judge someone unless u have walked in their shoes! Alicia keep ur head up cuz what doesn't kill u only makes u stronger! Love u girl! ;)

would really like to know who "sister" is on the comments trashing me my sister and brother...ya we had hard lives and could have been so much better if this or if that but it wasnt.. we played the hand we were delt and turned out just fine. we all have diplomas or g.e.d's we take care of ourselves, ya we struggle name one person who doesnt. the comment "one keeps having kids" i have 3 kids. which isnt very uncommon for my age. im 24 MARRIED and have 3 kids. yes only 2 of the 3 are my husbands but thats not so uncommon either. i was 17 with my first. and for my brother always going to prison. he has been out of trouble since my oldest son was born. has a 4 bedroom house and takes care of his family. and as for my sister, i know i can go to her when i need anything, she is an amazing step mom has a job and is the one who solved my moms case while everyone sat back and acted scared of my "father" if anything were to happen to me my sister or my brother one thing that would never happen is our kids bein raised by a murderer, being put in foster homes(although my foster parents are my parents and the one thing that went right in my life when everything went down i love you guys) and they sure wouldnt have been neglected by family until they were old enough to find us on their own. so out side of my foster parents and my sister tracy, no one has the right to say a damn thing about how we turned out!!!

You can not say she wanted to live with him or did not try to get out. This man tortured me for 5 years before he finally found Donna. He stabbed me and the courts threw out the knife charge after he made a deal. He kidnapped me out of the hospital, he locked me in a garage somewhere in Gary for 3 days when I was 8 months pregnant..No food, water, blankets or toilet paper. When he finally came to get me out, I told him his baby was going to die if I did not eat. He got a Mc Donalds hamburger and just as I was going to take a bite, he grabbed it out of my mouth and threw it out the window then punched me in the head because he said I looked at some guy in a car next to us. He drugged me and posed me and took nasty pictures of me the cops found. He rapped and stalked me and put cigarettes out on me. I cant begin to tell you everything he did to me ! He had a biker take me to prosicuters office to drop charges, which I did not want, but he said he would kill me and my kids. The prossicuter took me in the back room as he saw me shaking & I told him that Mr. Boesel made the biker bring me there. He said don't worry, the state just took over. He is in assistant living now in prison because he is mentally unable to take care of himself now. Either he is pretending, or he is reaping what he sowed.

And as far as people judging this matter...Don't ! You do not know what these kids or my kids or myself went through. I have PTSD because of this man. and it took a hell of a lot for her to tell the police when the police would not do anything for me. You have to be dead to get help in the justice system. And now we stand tall. God is good and has blessed us all <3
