so true but what can we do? i wish i could find that old bumper sticker, it said don't blame me i voted democrat. it would not be about making everyone richer by lowering taxes it would be about being responsible for who we are AMERICANS and sorry folks i'm willing to pay as many taxes that you want if i could get my self dignity back. we can't focus on home because our world policies are so messed up that the only thing we can do is blame immigrants for our problems at home its not them its us fighting a bogus war for the oil . thats making our country unsafe .if i was outside my house fighting and causing havoc would i not expect the kids to take over the house bring in their firiends and tear up everything? isn't that what we are doing? while we are out in the middle east everyone is taking over our house

That's right down the road from my family, I want to know if this girl was reported missing, before they found the body. There's so much we don't know.

Sad that this happened. Unfortunately this horrible crime is just the sign of the times here in the Antelope Valley. Hopefully, this murder will get as much attention as that of the young lady that was murdered a few years ago at the park and ride on S off the A V Freeway. All murders should be investigated and parents watch out for your children.

This psychopath murderer was probably just paroled from the eyesore Calif. State Prison on 60th St. West.

Knowing that psychopath(s) are residents of the A V and on the loose is frightening.

I bet she was in the Los Angeles County fostercare system. The system is broke and someone should take a long hard look at the system. Our chidren in fostercare are in danger and no one seems to care. There are not enough appropiate placements, and the the placements that are there are undesirable. So the children's response is to runaway from a bad situation.

I have a 13 year old and this evening I told her that the reasons I do not let her do things her friends parents do is because I never want this to happen to her. There is no hanging out at the park or mall. I know where she is at all times.
This is not the same as looking at pictures of Burma and China, but rather in her own backyard. This is not a story of some far away place rather a corner we pass several times a week. I use this story as a example, but in the back of my mind I am disturbed by where the parents were. At 13 they are still children.

I want to know how this girl was out of adult supervision long enough to be murdered. I feel for the mother, but as a mother I do wonder how this child got in this position. How did this mother not know where her child was long enough for her to be murdered and dumped in such a remote area?

Children did not ask to be brought into this world. They depend on adults to guide them to be productive members of society. Why was she not home on Mother's Day? Why did no one know where a 13 year old child was for such a period of time?

I hope they find the person who did this and I hope they are punished, but unfortunately it will only cost us to house/inprison him for the appropriate life/death sentence. There would not be some unknown child murderer in our area, there would not be a 13 year old child dead, our city would not have the expense, and man hours, to locate/prosecute this vile human being, and of course the added expense of housing him could have been prevented if only this childs parents had fulfilled their obligation to her!

Regardless of the circumstances surrounding her death, this girls parents need to take a look at their own actions and decisions as I would recommend to the Sheriffs Department.
