This story shakes up the very being that we are. I did not think things could get much worse then when my daughters 5th grade classmate Shawn Hornebeck came up missing. The boy lived in the house that my husband grew up in as a child, 3 miles away from where we lived then. I thought that that was most horrid. But now a 7 day old baby
is brutally taken from it young mother 7 miles away from my home. It makes me feel scared to send my kids to feed the animals, take out the trash, little lone go to the bus stop where they stand along side hwy 47 to cacth the bus. Too Creepy !!!! Out side of fear, I am deeply sadden for this young couple, Life will for ever be altered for them and the loved ones involved. Everyone becomes the enemy and no one can be trusted. How uneasy it is to think this could be me, or my sister, my friend. This is my neighbor ..... Sincere prayers for a peace that can past all understanding.

The person is obviously a sicko in the worst sense! Hope they catch whoever did it.

This morning on the news it was reported that little Abby is safe and now home with her family. My heart skipped a few beats when I first heard this story and I am so relieved the woman who kidnapped this precious little girl is in custody.

Does anyone know anymore about who this Shannon Beck is. That she was practically a neighbor (lived 3 miles away) is a frightening thought.
Just a happy person

I am so extatic that abby is back home and safe. When I heard about the couple whom I went to school with had to go threw something this horifying I was mortified and then to hear the woman who is responsible for the kidnapping was arrested I about had a heart attack. I feel that the woman that did this deserves the death penalty not insanity. but who or what do i know. the one thing I do know is that at least something great came of it. and that is that there still are people out there that do care and are able to still lend a helping hand.
