Errrr, it isn't about her it's about the little boy.It is so easy for you all to blame someone who can't be here to defend herself. Unless you were in her shoes you all have no idea what she was thinking or why she responded the way she did. You don't know what advice she was given by the FBI or any lawyers. I am not saying that she had nothing to do with it but I am saying that it is unfair for eveyone to slander her publicly before it has actually been proven that she was responsible. Her whole life is being exposed to the whole world. Remember the saying, "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone" I am sure every last one of you has made dumb mistakes in your life, some a lot worse than she has, so would you like to have all that exposed because your child has had something happen to him/her? Imagine how hard that would be to live with ontop of not knowing where your baby is. There was also a rumour where her grandparents lived that the baby had been found dead in a garbage can. Maybe she also heard that rumour and that is why she did it. Who knows!!! Just give the law the chance to do their job and prove what really happened and hopefully find this little boy, Don't condemn her before anything has been proven just because she made mistakes or maybe had a tough life.
Her life was in shambles. From documentation of Police and Child Welfare Services we have concluded she was deeply mentally disturbed. Why no one went to her aid, stayed with her, talked to her, consoled her we do not know, perhaps she would not hear of it, but she does not deserve our concern nor our empathy, it is that lovely little boy that is of concern. If you read other murdered chidren's profiles you will see that Melinda's story is not much different than theirs. We are beginning, not yet fully but beginning to run out of hope for little Trenton. Our actions have not come to the inconsevible conclusion that Melinda did. She was a true coward, sick perhaps but a coward none the less.
