She smoked? She was 14. She slept around? She was 14. You couldn't control her? SHE WAS 14. She was a kid. YOU were the parent. What is wrong with you?
The #1 thing that corroborates her story is that 14 year olds don't run away with icky old men if they don't have something to run from. People don't get victimized like this unless someone teaches them that nobody loves them. And lo and behold, she gets out and you immediately start talking about a minor child in a way that flatters you the most and absolves you from all responsibility for what happened to YOUR CHILD. If ANYTHING like that'd happened to my child and I thought I'd done everything right, I'd be apologizing to her every single day for the rest of my life because it happened on MY WATCH. You didn't take a freaking year before smearing this girl because God forbid anyone think badly of you even a little bit.
There's no 14 year old who wouldn't think about any escape at all from a home life of people willing to throw their child under the bus like that. "Oh, but she threw us under the bus"-- YOU ARE THE PARENT. YOU WERE BAD AT IT. YOU STILL ARE. SUCK IT UP.
Y'all are a bunch of psychopathic snakes. You will never be sorry and you will never admit your part in any of this. You will invent stories. If there is a hell, it was made just for people like you.

First of all, no ones cares what you have to say, and especially no one cares about TRASHY ass Tanya. She was a fast chicky that didn't want parental supervision. Thought she knew everything in life. Let me ask you LITTLEFOOT, since you seem to know a lot about nothing: Did Tanya go to her parents and tell them about some creepy security guard?? Can you honestly answer this question? Your basing your GUESS on what happened by one point of view "HERS". There's only 4 people that know the total truth and hers isn't the truth. By the way, I hear your cows mooing. Better go milk them before it turns into SOUR MILK like her story!!!

Children are tried as adults in PA. That should go all the way across the board for whatever they do, be it murder, rape, running away......no one can EVER explain to me how a 14 year old is a child when having sex but an 11 year old is an adult when committing murder. Makes NO sense to me.
Good point. I'm not saying 14-yr-olds should not be protected in sexual (and other) matters. I'm also not saying 11-yr-olds should not be tried as adults. I don't know the answer, but it is certainly a good point and a disparity that should be considered. Perhaps the answer is in the behavior and not the age. If a 14-yr-old is being victimized, maybe s/he should be protected. However, if an 11-yr-old kills someone like an adult psychopath, maybe there is good reason to treat her/him like an adult. The problem is that judges have discretion with an 11-yr-old murderer, but a 14-yr-old is always a 14-yr-old as a victim.

I don't believe hardly anything in her story. I saw it on ID & it just doesn't make sense. She was out and about & had photos taken and her hair & nails done. What she couldn't just go home? No she chose to stay with that guy.

Why was she running away? How many times did she run away? No one answered that question. What was bad parenting? I saw no mention of her parents abusing her. It's her preception of bad parenting. Wait til she becomes a parent and her kids tell her how awful she was as a parent.
Sexual abuse in never ok but most of her story stinks. I don't believe hardly anything.

It's not obsession, it's disgust. Most McKeesporters never left the city so they remember growing up with this girl and going to school with her. Stevie Wonder can see through her faćade. Hose is a weirdo and deserves his prison sentence but she is far from innocent. I know that she enjoyed being with Tom, even saying how much she cares and loves him. Every relationship starts off as an infatuation but it took her way too long to realize she wasn't in the best position and should have never made the decision to move in with him in the first place.

So they reason why people are still posting about this is because she can not and probably never will tell the REAL TRUTH. Man up Tanya or Nikki or whoever!

I hadn't even heard about this girl until I saw a program on the ID channel recently. I have a few questions, if anyone has the answers.

1. In googling, I haven't yet seen anything about Tom's parents weighing in here. Did they really not know she was there all this time?

2. How did this girl end up on a milk carton, but no one locally even printed a story in the newspaper about her being missing?

3. Has Hose ever spoken out with his side of the story?

4. Judy Sokol (sp?).....cut and dyed this girl's hair; did she know this was a missing kid?
I have problems with her story, period. But I have problems with her parents, too, and I refuse to buy the book. I don't think we can expect any 14 y/o to "want parenting".....the thing about being a teenager is that you think you have all the answers and you want to do things your own way. Her stepmother said she read Tanya's diary entry about having sex with "Tom", but she didn't tell the police because the diary entry didn't have his last name? WTF? That's crazy. It doesn't sound like her parents looked too damned hard for her. Hell, if my DOG was missing, I'd be posting fliers all over the place, asking for help. I dunno. I don't believe her, but I also feel that no one should expect a 14 y/o to behave and/or think like an adult. The people who should have been thinking/acting like adults seriously dropped the ball here.

. Well since my crystal ball is broken at the moment and can't answer your questions. May I suggest that you may want to ask her spokesperson Amy Richardson. She seems to have all the answers.

According to the TV show, she only used the potty in the room. Didn't she ever take a shower or bath in 10 years? What did she eat? She said she ate his left overs but she looked quite healthy in those early photos of hers. His parents must have known she was there. I mean she was in and out of that house all the time. His parents were probably old or just didn't care. Was he out shopping for female products and female clothes and no one ask any questions. Her story stinks.

Shame about your crystal ball, Wendy. If mine had been working, I would've known that asking for civil, sincere feedback from this forum was stupid. Take a guess where you can put your suggestion.

I went to school with her and Hose and also see through the bs but I don't and obsess over this girl. Is she hurting you or are you just jealous? Like I said its weird and the people who are obsessing with this girl should get a life.
