Does anyone remember Elaine Fogel? When I was just a kid she was brutally raped and murdered. I never forgot it or the fact that they never found the guy who did it. Remember Sheila Dodd and her precious child? Terrible things happen everyday somewhere in the world and they have very little to do with race. WHY IS IT ALWAYS ABOUT RACE? There are good and bad in people of every race and I'm very saddened that people use this woman's pain as a launching pad for another chance to spout racial crap. It's 2010, time to grow up and move forward.The simple truth of the matter is Walterboro is a small, good ole boy town. They lack in education and resources to have competent law enforcement. And the ones that are there? Well people you put them there. So either use your vocals to help change it, shut up or do like I did and get the hell out of there. But be prepared, there's crime everywhere.

Elaine was my cousin she was a kind and good person and a trusting person,the girl her room married the boy who killed her so she would not be able to convict him on the stand, and then one of the guys was send away for along time, I think he hs dead now, everyone knows who did so why id money,power, stop this. sled has good dna, don't know why they can't match it to them. maybe the adam walsh foundation needs to go to Waterboro and shake up some people,i understand their was a lot of dirty things going on back then with the law, she needs justice for her and her sister,she stills wonders why:::

I think some people just don't know how the usa became the usa it was built off murder rape and forced labor just for starters. Any country who has a foundation like that is built on the dark-side of the universe. oh yes i know most will say well it wasn't me and i will say to them I BET EVERY DAY YOU BENEFIT FROM WHAT TOOK PLACE NOT SO LONG AGO...

Stop with the black white brown stuff when you look in the mirror your looking at the whole HUMAN RACE and hate only feeds more hate and one day that hate will knock on your door.....don't feed the beast...

elaine fogle was my 1st cousin and i remember this vividly. her death killed her father. some of our family have gone to walterboro to try and stir up some interest in the case, but to no avail.
with all the new technology available, it does appear that some type of lead could be generated.
REST IN PEACE , ELAINE....WE HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN YOU.

I wrote sled a letter back last year to mark keel in Elaine fogles cold case but as normal no reply to this day, no one will talk about this and still the police chief will not talk to any one in the family, says its a ongoing deal and they don't want to spook the suspects,, get real they know who this is,and why the couplegot married these people an their familys has connections and money, the good old boy system, my uncle and aunt has died without piece in this matter, she has one sister living and our famiy would love this to be at a end with justice, ut guess the money still talks, if I knew it would help I would throw some dollars out their to see who bites my self,

I believe that walterboro has lack of any kind of police support or not enough money for education I believe. I am sure of they r trying to take over. Not a great place to live of your white .justy opinion to many gangs .Do Something about it .not enough man power. I say bring them in from another state or better yet FBI
