lake county is handling this case completly in a unaceptible way! everyone in this community knows in their hearts that 2 local women Teresa and Marissa Brooks mother and daughter are responsible for this vulgar act. many calls have been made and nothing is being done. someone please help bring theese 2 people to justice. They are liars, cheats and plain bad. This is the biggest thing to happen in our county in years as i see it this case could make or break the lake co. sherrifs dpt. whom have a bad reputation. If authorities got off their a***** this would have been a closed case by now. it has been blundered from the start (locals are refering to dept. as the keystone cops). please help with any information. Thank you so much.6907

Michelle, I know the people of Lakeview are up in arms about this crime, especially that it has stretched on for so long and undoubtedly the trail has gone cold.

You name two people you suspect, why? What/who are they in relation to the community?

You also claim that LCSD, in your opinion, has not done an adequate investigation. Can you support those allegations with fact?

Right after this crime was committed, there was an initial flurry of press, since then however, not a peep. Is it your opinion that this has been brushed under the rug, because it might embarrass someone in the community if all the facts were public knowledge?

I would be extremely careful in calling out any individual without having all the incriminating evidence at hand.

You are to be commended for your concern in this case, as it is very difficult to hear of these kinds of things, let alone witness them first hand in your community, as you have done. I wish you the best of luck in your pursuit of the individuals responsible for this crime.

Hey friends, please contact the Lake Co. Sherriffs Dept. and inquire about our case. I fear that it will go cold if our community doesn't remain outraged by the dispicable acts of monsters among us. We all know the stats. of crimes like this..if they get away with things like this they get more empowered to do more violant crimes. The suspects were asked to aid in the investigation by proving their innocents and allowing law enforcement to look elsewhere by taking a polygraph; they refused. When do we take this to the court of public opinion , tell evidence, and seek a civil action?
In response to above questions there has been nothing done publicity wise you are correct. and according to a LCSD deputy he should have done things differently so it is of my oppinion being close to this case it has been blundered from start.
the two named people mentioned are the main suspects I have not said they are convicted of this. heck so many people have voluntered to do a polygraph me and the owners of said horses included, these people will not cooperate one bit not even to clear their name if possible.
I am at wits end with the laxadaisiol efforts being made or shall I say not made by authorities. The family, the kids especialy are in so much pain and everyday they have to see who they believe to be the guilty parties going on with life while these children just want to know why did you do this to us. how do you look at someone you love in so much dispair and not try anything in the world to help?
This was done out of greed and jealousy in our oppinions and everyone is entitled to their own. I wish I could answer so many more of you questions but whatever you would like to know post them out on this site in question form and I will answer each one with as much information as I have. if you have any advice we are so wanting to hear from everyone. thank you much for your regaurds

Just for your information, those two ladies had nothing to do with that crime. Their actions are not what this lady above said. They are upstanding people who had everything to lose if people actually think they had anything to do with it. They were several of dozens of people who were investigated and cleared.

Law enforcement did exactly what they were supposed to but had very little to go on. It is not surprising that rumors flew the way they did.

A sad case but some one out there does know exactly what happened and hopefully someday they will come forward.
