Why aren't the parents suspects? When the two were murdered in Franklin last year the husband/father was the first suspect.

The authorities' refusal to issue ANY information about these cases over the past weeks has led to speculation that either a coverup or a foulup is afoot.

The need to know the status of the case is not a matter of idle or purient curiosity: two young women were murdered in a small community, and the residents would like to know if they should should be sitting up at night with the lights on.

Why did it take so long to interview the parents? Why was Erin cremated so hastily? When two sisters are killed in the same house a week apart, wouldn't the list of suspects be fairly narrow? And what of Erin's baby- who has custody? Why did the mom say the day had been "stressful" when it was still early?

The stonewalling by authorities is feeding speculation, and the notion that small town cops have somehow bungled the investigation.

I had a client who was the head of homicide in Chicago. I asked him about murder and investigations from his perspective. He said, "Its usually the family, or aquaintances." He said the easiest way to get away with murder is go down the street of a town you don't live in, go up to the door of a house you don't know anybody, and if you killed the occupants, no one would know you did it. Unless someone saw you coming or going, you would not be a suspect because you have no connection.
It is someone these girls knew or a relative. Bet on it.

This is definitely one for Forensic Files, but I've read about six articles concerning this case including stories in the Richmond newspaper. Supposedly the boyfriend of the 1st girl to die was the one who discovered the body. What is also interesting is that the 2nd sister to die worked at Dairy Queen and hadn't missed a single night of work and she was dealing with her sisters death by talking about it with others- did that lead to her murder? When it all comes out in the wash it will be the boyfriend, there's no other logical explanation for 2 sisters to end up dead within two weeks.
pray for the baby

come on people. this is not CSI. of course the parents and boyfriend are all suspects. it takes a little longer to gather evidence in real life then on TV. cut the cops a little slack.

You seem to have all the answers. Why don't you go help out the police and speed this investigation up. It's fairly obvious if you were in charge the murderer would have been convicted and in prison by now.

I use to live 2 houses down from where these murders took place. I have been glued to every news story, paper, etc. since this happened. It is very hard for me to believe that something like this could happen on this street, but then again, I haven't lived there for almost 10 years. I too find it very strange the actions/reactions of the mothers 911 call. Having 2 children myself, if I were to find one of them "non-responsive", or struggling to breath, you better bet you a## that I would be doing everything I could to get them revived. I am not placing guilt here, but the mothers calmness in the call and the whispering in the background is very suspect to me. Then tack on the 2nd "mysterious" death. The boyfriend finding the body of the first girl, the 911 call, the body of the second, etc., something's not adding up. Just like the Jill Behrman case, I will continue to reading stories until someone is
charged and prosecuted.

Maybe the police who are investigating the case know a little more about it than you do. Give the investigation time.

Wow, people are ignorant aren't they?

This isn't an episode of "Murder She Wrote." Some crimes aren't solved within 47 minutes (allowing for commercials) with a nice, neat confession. The police aren't releasing information because they do not want to compromise the trial that may eventually take place.

Please shelve your conspiracy theories born of ignorance. In time, you'll likely know all the disturbing details that you seek.

My astute and insightful theory is that the second victim knew too much! about the first victim and the same or some moron closely linked to the perpetrator took out the second victim!--I got a wake-up message for all of you--smaill town-Indiana hilljacks!---come out of denial and your make-believe mentality and accept the fact that crime and wickedness has no boundaries! get-it?-thanks again!--also in some capacity this incident has drugs in the equation!

There are many times in an ongoing investigation when the cops won't release much info. They have reasons for it. It could taint a confession.

I am worried that so many people are throwing accusations when the best thing to do is pray. Pray for the police, the community, the family, the person who did this...Mr. Astute in Greenfield, not everyone living in a rural area is a hilljack...i used to live in your county and I know plenty of hilljacks living right in your town...I think I'll say a pray for you too...
