Obviously, something is very wrong in Belton to the highest eschelons and when this thing blows its is not only going to bring Kara Home and closure for her family but alot of members of the law enforcement will be scrutinized and losing their jobs will only be the beginning.

You're on to something for sure. I have family in Belton. They unequivocally believe Kara has not been found because of certain involvement by a few of Belton's finest. My family has shared that the detective(s) over the case were the same detective(s) over Narcotics in 2007. It has been more than rumored that Kara was killed in West Belton, over drugs or snitching. West Belton has had a known Meth problem...just ask the folks that have lived there for many years. Back in 2007 people called the police many times, drove to the dept to file complaints...but nothing ever changed. It always felt like the drug dealers knew they had protection! If she is found...I'm sure there will be a few job openings in the dept.
For one, I would love to see Belton's detective over Kara's case, take a volunteer polygraph!

It is believed that Kylr abducted his exgirlfriend,Candice, last week where she was hiding in Wichita, KS. No one has heard from her for a week except for a blocked cell call sounding stressed and scared. Where is she now? Where are the Wichita police looking? She has been reported missing after saying Kylr took her with Jesse,some girl. DOes anyone ever stop him? 4/18/13

I totally support what you have to say. I think anything is possible and that playing amateur sleuth is one thing, but stating that she ran away? How does anyone know that she ran away. I do not think she did. Her case has not gotten the same attention because of people that are narrow minded. She was a young girl, she has a family that loves her and deserves answers.

I realize that this posting was a while back and maybe Dee won't see this... but for anyone else out there that MIGHT look at this, I did want to set this straight.
In her comment, Dee flat out said that "from what I've heard..." and that is exactly what all of that is, here say. I'm definitely not trying to be mean or anything but that has been the problem with this whole disappearance from the beginning (well, just one of the many...) So many people are hearing this and hearing that and taking it as gospel... One person says, "oh she was a known runaway" and then it is written in stone... "oh she ran away". I don't feel it is my place to tell all of my family's business on here and, again, I don't mean to call Dee to the mat on here. I just think it is important to remember that things that you may here are not necessarily the truth.
Since we truly have no answers at all we don't know if there is a connection between Kara and Kelsey's case... it has never been proven or disproved... so who really knows. It wouldn't surprise me if Edwin Hall had done something like what he did to Kelsey before and may have, if not caught so quickly, done again... so the "hysteria" was probably not completely without reason.
As is the case with most missing persons, once the situation happens (which I wouldn't wish on my very worst enemy) the poor missing person as well as his/her family is put through the ringer and under a microscope... no one looks perfect under that kind of scrutiny, believe me. Not to mention, no one hands you a manual on how to handle it. You just do the best you can and go from there. It is very easy for so many people to say what SHOULD have been done especially when you’re not the one going through it first hand.
I certainly feel for all of those people out there who have missing loved ones… it is a “club” that you never dream you could be a member of… As for Kara, she wasn’t perfect… I don’t know anyone who is… she’s just a silly and funny 17 year old girl that we want back in our lives. A girl who should have graduated a few weeks ago and should be making plans for a fun-filled summer and college or work plans for the fall. Wherever she is, we all love her and want her home

Thanks for the update. That's horrifying. Where did you hear this, if I might ask?

Mr. Yust has been sentenced to four years in prison on a drug trafficking charge.
It'll be interesting to see where this goes now that he is in the hands of higher authorities. Some dark comments on that article, including a former roommate who claims he is "absolutely insane" and almost certainly the killer.
With Kylr's purported room temperature IQ and tendency to brag, it's pretty much just a waiting game now.
