I was almost positive on that part about the drugs and boat--why in the world do people video themselves doing stuff life that? Especially illegal stuff & more than likey been mixed up with other crimes?? I don't get that...<quoted text>
OT: Absolutely, But on that particular "boat video", it was just S and his friends. There was quite a few different U-tube videos that surfaced at the time. The one you are referring to was
the one that showed S and his friends partying in a friend's parked boat (parked on land), and they were smok'in up a storm with what appeared to be weed, and they were partying + joking around.
The more disturbing videos to me were the ones where S and his friends, and some people even think Billie and/or Haily may have been in the background in one of them....they were all behind a house near a storm shelter looking thing, and they had on graphic HORROR MASKS, and were holding knives, and even had coveralls on, to make it look like the movie "halloween" apparantly. Thus, the reason the coverals became important on the day S quit work, because on an interview, Billie admitted to washing the 1 pair the night before that pair was turned into work. Some speculated there was a 2nd pair that may have never been turned in.
The scary mask videos were very disturbing.
Hailey never had a chance. Most people beleve the mother chose the boyfriend over the child, and a lot of people feel that she may be involved in either the coverup or even worse. There were many online internet/radio interviews with both Billie + S that were disturbing to listen to.
About the mom---wow. It is sooooo hard for me to reconcile a mother aiding and continuing to live with or support a man that may have murdered her child.
My childhood was not an easy one & I have learned that mother's can justifiy things in their minds or convince themselves something is not how it looks when they are lonely or needy.
I don't mean to judge Hailey's mother. I have not been in her shoes--but........she must be asking herself some tough questions at this time. I do feel for her because if she is a decent person, she will eventually have to come to terms with the fact that she let this man into their lives. IMO And, all of these thoughts are pending the man's guilt of course.
