So many of us have been waiting what seems like forever to see an arrest in this case. I continue, like many others, to pray that there will be an arrest soon.

They'll get to the bottom of what most already know, I'm sure. However, I'm assuming that they are taking their time so that there is no possibility of "holes" in the case. It would be a tragedy if the arrest was made and charges filed only to be thrown out on a technicality, as often happens in our justice system. Let's hope for justice for Brandi and her family.

Thank you crickett.
People have watched TV shows like Law & Order and CSI and actually believe that these fictional shows for entertainment purposes are what happens in real life.
This is the United States of America...where a person is Innocent until PROVEN Guilty.
There is a big difference between what one knows and what one can PROVE in a court of law.
As far as holding information from the public Lauren....well that should go without saying and if it must be explained to you then maybe it's a good thing you are not in Law Enforcment.
Time is on our side and a criminal has to be perfect not to get caught, and if my Sunday school teacher was correct.....there was only one perfect person and he died for our sins.
The person who comitted this crime was nowhere near perfect!

Well, I just don't believe that the police are obligated to divulge information to the public before a case is completely solved and air-tight. JMO... had they kept the press out of the Simpson trial and many others, perhaps we'd have a few more criminals behind bars and not living next door to innocent people.

My guess is that the Killer is the only one else who would know the details, so they keep them private. This is usually incase someone comes forward and confesses, they can then determine if they are who they say they are. Also, could look at other unsolved murders and see if there are any similarities. Releasing the info might also cause the Killer to change his behavior if he (I'm assuming it's a he)knew just how much detail they actually had into this crime and cause him to run or not do something he would have done that would have caused him to slip up. I don't believe Law Enforcement keeps info private just to tick us off or cover something up. It will all come out in the end.
