NN, i think that smear campaign started with the very first official reports on holly being taken.You know what, I think there has been a campaign of sorts to smear Clint and Drew from day 1. I can't just say that it is the perps, because, of course, people are going to be skeptical of those closest to the victim, but this has gone above and beyond just being suspicious. They make up lies and distort truth in order to make them look guilty. Also, some of the user names that do this are on other missing person forums doing the exact same thing, blaming people close to the family. Either they are just bored and crazy or there is something more sinister going on than meets the eye. I tend to believe its the latter.
Also, some of the user names that are real people have been hijacked. I know of at least 2 people who this has happened to on topix.
i tend to think that, for some reason, LE had the "need" to distort or withhold information from the public that was told to them by clint, on what happened that morning.
and the spin started right then and there, to put clint and drew in a bad light. maybe it was done for a reason and that both clint and drew agreed to take the flak for the good of the investigation.
all JMO of course.
