I talked to someone that did the DNA testing on her and they know who did it. I don't know why the police is stalling.
seriously

What are they waiting on? They have shown signs that they have known all along, so why haven't they arrested anyone? Are they waiting on this person to harm or kill someone else?

I think they need to investigate her sister! I think her step-sister had something to do with it. She may not have did it herself but I think she knows who did or was a part of it. I think there is a lot more to this case than whats been told.
If people are waiting for Huntingtons detectives & etc. to solve this case.....all I can say is Good Luck! They still havent solved the murder of those 4 teenagers! Now thats a right down shame!

Private Eye, I thought the same as you and I said I thought the stepsister was a suspect, but the DNA person said, "no."

I always suspected the step sister had something to do with it or knows something! If only Nancy Grace got a hold of this case, and the case of the 4 murdered teenagers.. it would sure make alot of people start squirming. Poor Samantha Burns, I know they want to find her body, but the men admitted to doing it and they are behind bars. They need to take all that money they are putting into finding her body to find the killers of these other cases! Stop and think for a minute of all the money that has been spent on bringing in special teams and investigators to find her body. Don't get me wrong. I would like to see her family find comfort and give her a proper burial. But sometimes, you have done all you can do. They need to take that money and manpower to get convictions in these other murder cases!

To Me Too,
Do you really think that money and manpower is why they haven't got convictions in these cases? I'm sure they would dedicate every man they had and all the money they had if they knew where to look or had any substantial evidence. I'm sure they suspect the step sister. But suspecting and being able to prosecute based on evidence are two completely different things! I'm also sure that HPD would like nothing better than to announce who the murderers of all of these innocent children are! But they can't just start arresting everyone because somebody thinks they are suspicious!

Hey Me too,

How does it sound like I do not want the cases solved?
I know the Burns family personally and would give every dime that I have for her body to be recovered!
I don't know any of the other families, but I would do anything that I could to help them find the killers of their kids!
I said I don't think they have enough evidence to convict anyone and don't think they want to risk a mistrial on circumstantial evidence that might lead to a mistrial.
You want to sit on your couch and let Nancy Grace solve the worlds problems like they do on television!
It only takes an hour for a murder to occur, police to investigate, all the evidence to be processed, murderer found, arrested, tried and convicted on TV!!

That ain't reality!

In the real world the police get to see someones kid mangled and mutilated sometimes beyond recognition, and then get to watch the family suffer and grieve while they are trying to find the SOB that could do this to another human being!
You don't think they want to find the killer??

I THINK YOU DON'T WANT ANY CASES SOLVED BY THE POLICE! IF THEY DID SOLVE THEM, THEN THERE WOULDN'T BE ANYTHING FOR NANCY GRACE TO ENTERTAIN YOU WITH !!
just so sad

i wish they would do something more too...i think everyone thought the half sister had something to do with it...and those 4 teenagers its so sad...i know someone that works for hpd and he said that yes they pretty much know who did it but they dont have air tight eveidence to fully convict..which i cant blame em i would want all my ducks in a row before i went to court too.we dont want the bad guys to get to court and win and then theres reallly nothing u can do about it if they get off.

So if they truly know who did this, why not get them off the streets.

I just can't see the reason that there hasn't even been an arrest??? It looks bad on HPD.

Is there anything that the public can do to get the PD rolling on this. I live across the street from the building she was murdered in and I can't help but think about it every time i go to get in my car.

The sister knows something i think. I would also like to know some of the facts such as time of death. Her body wasnt found until a week after she went missing even with special corpse sniffing dogs from Utah. I want to know if she died AFTER she went missing because if so it may infact be a crazy psycho killer. One things for sure the HPD sure wont figure it out. Skip Holbrook is a tard i remember him saying "weve got our eye on the ball" during the initial hoopla surrounding Leah. He's an idiot plain and simple.

You can't just arrest someone. They have the right to a speedy trial, which means the prosecution needs to be ready to go with their case quite soon after the person is indicted. Sometimes defendants waive this right to give themselves more time to prepare, but you can't count on that as a prosecutor.

Just because they have suspects doesn't mean they have the evidence for a CONVICTION! You only have 1 chance to prove your case in a trial beyond a reasonable doubt. This is not rocket science. Nothing is so cut and dry. Just because they haven't arrested anyone doesn't mean that they don't know who did it. It's not what you know, it's what you can prove. This isn't TV. Crimes aren't solved in 60 minutes. Sometimes it takes YEARS to get the evidence you need to achieve a conviction. Get real people. Always easy to judge actions (or perceived inaction) from the sidelines.
