O.J. Simpson vowed to get his wife's killer and you didn't pray for O.J., are you racist or something?

this is very sad and scary and sick that an innocent child in broad daylight could be kidnapped and murdered. They caught the killer of the little girl in Missouri in less than 24 hours! which is fantastic. i only hope fl can do the same, every day the trail gets more cold, they MUST find this animal before he kills again.

this was not some diseased dirty stripper or hooker this was an innocent baby. a study showed recently that sexual predators who rape and kill children highly viewed porn and went to those aids infested strip bars. carli bruci was killed by such a man in north fl a few years back and you can google it "carli bruci murdered in florida" the man admitted going to dirty diseased strip bars and watching porn on the computer, many predators have admitted the same thing, that is the sickest thing i have ever heard. they are not hurting or raping the porn stars, hookers or strippers they prey on little kids! monsters!

i pray this man is caught and i pray for the family of this little girl that somehow they can heal and live again, through it will take much time. i hope the cops find him soon before the savage takes another child.

I think the mother is odd. Something doesn't feel right about it. The night they had found a body in the dump they thought could be the child her reaction did not seem genuine. It could be a need for attention. She seems fake like she is putting on a show for the camera. It reminds me of Susan Smith the mother in SC.

What are the odds that the one day this child gets in a fight with the other children and runs ahead of them to go home that some stranger is waiting to grab her? I'm not clear on the reports, they said the mother's boyfriend was waiting at home for them? Did the other children go straight home too? Was she crying or telling the other kids she was going to tell on them?

They don't seem to have confirmed if the dumpster outside that vacant house was the right one since they are still searching the dump. Something isn't adding up.

I notice the people who "pray" seem to think that a man child molestor killed this child, when for all we know at this time is that the child's death was accidental or caused by the mother. But I pray, that the mother didn't do it.
I also noticed that you "prayed" to raise the child above other women that you called "strippers" and "hookers". Very interesting comment on your possible mental illnes.
They said the mother was at work but her boyfriend was home waiting for the kids. When she ran ahead of the other children it would have been home to him.

I guess he called the mother and said she didn't come home but the reports haven't been clear. However it happened they said two hours after she went missing it was the mother who flagged down a police officer while she was out looking for the girl.

how do you know there is a "killer"? With the information provided thus far, how can anyone even know if a killer was involved at all? Maybe it was a simple accident?

Richard, do you read? The story states "Fla. detectives search for girl's killer, sorting through trash and looking for witnesses" If the authorities thought there was an accident involved that is the way the headlines would have read. From your profile picture that you are apparently proud of, with your stainless 12 gauge and custom suit and "gangsta" look you seem to want to back the criminal element and keep poking fun at people who are concerned and feel sympathy for the family and anger toward the person responsible. I question whether you sir are "racist" as you state in previous comments it seems that you are. I don't know why the O.J. comments were needed either, the guy has proven he is a scumbag at heart, and has finally got some jail time for his actions. I thoroughly believe that the man got away with murder. I am sorry you are an atheist and don't believe in Jesus because from the image you project you are probably going to need him.

I don't know why you want to drag Jesus into this unless you are blaming him or God for not protecting children or taking the life of these predators.

His OJ comment seems reasonable in that guilty people also claim they are going to hunt down the killer.

Too bad this mother wasn't so concerned about her 7 year old daughter when she allowed her to walk home alone from school. Anyone should know 7 years old is WAY too young to walk home alone from school.

Let me fill in some blanks. It does give a hint to be an accident and the police were saying killer when her legs were found sticking out from the pile of trash. Now, at that moment in time they would have froze everything to preserve evidence and yet they could only describe what they saw to mildly identify her body. Understandably so but they, at that time could not have known if this was an accident or a murder and yet they wasted no time telling everone there was a child killer on the loose.
Monday afternoon she goes missing based on what the older sister and kids told the cops. Tuesday morning the trash is picked up and wednsday she is found in the dump. Im not shure here but to snatch her up on a busy street with crossing guards stationed throughout their path, it would take a brave indevidual or stupid for that matter to kill her and dump her in a dumpster while everyone was in deep search mode. I think that house is standard procedure to search because its the only place that doesnt fit in. Also makes a good smoke screen for the police to snowjob the press. It sounds more like somers body was in a dumpster before they even started looking for her. I say dumpster and not trash can because if the trash was picked up the next morning then the cans would have been full the night before. So, what if she climbed in a dumpster to boo her friends or fell in and was hurt.
As for the mother, god i hope this is just her way of dealing with the pain. But im having flashbacks of Susan Smith! I cant heip but wonder if she knows this was an accident and has dug too deep to protect someone. But this does not fit the profile of a random killer with the speed that the body was dumped and not just left in place.

The police determine the cause of death then clam up while at the same time all but clear every sex offender by saying that they have no reason to believe any are suspect at this time. Sounds like this was not a sex crime. I dont think they would let up on them if they felt this was a case of sexual favor.
Got a feeling they know what happened and wonder if they will drop the bomb after the funeral.

The child was walking home with her brother and older sybling and friends. That isn't the same as alone.

They said she was upset and ran ahead of them to go home. No one saw her attacked or abducted.

The sheriff said none of the registered sex offenders are a suspect though they haven't released a cause of death. One can only guess that means they have no evidence of this being a sexual offense case.

It seems odd that a 7 year old could get that far ahead of the rest of the group that no one could have seen anything.

Until it was stated on here I would have never suspected a sex offender that lived in the area. Guess that's just me but I didn't think of that. I do however feel that there is a good chance that if a man kidnapped and killed her that quickly that more than likely he sexually abused her before he killed her. That's just reality. Most cases in the past that has been the case. It doesn't make sense that someone would just randomly pick her off the sidewalk and kill her and dump her body.

It would be very natural for a 7 year old to run from the others and hide in a dumpster. The only question on that is why did she not jump out or let anybody know where she was, if she could talk,then maybe she wasn't alone in the dumpster.

You know? We may solve this if we keep discussing it.

O.J. is looking for the killer and Somer Thompson's mom is looking for the killer. The only thing that is missing is your dumb ass racist bull crap.

She saw a teddy bear or a bunny in the dumster and before anyone knew it, she climbed in and was compacted and then dumped in the landfill. That's my theory.
