I watched the 48 hours show tonight.And something that struck me odd was that the only DNA that was found on the body was that of the boy friend,and Abbott the man that found her.Another thing they said the only DNA that was mixed with the blood under her nails was her boy friends.He said it came from the sex they had that night.If that is the case dont you think there would be DNA from the perp.as well has her boyfriends,after all they said she was trained in selfdefence I would think she put up a fight.Also Abbot says he only touched her on the sholder when he found her.But they said there was more of his DNA on her body besides her sholder.Could it be that Abbot and the boy friend new each other and could have done this crime together.It is just a thought if they could link Abbot and the boyfreind together this could be big.God bless Sherriff Walters for his work on this case and may God lead him as he serches for this coward or cowards that took this young ladys life.

IF you will recall the bf said he found her riding around that night with other guys. Was one of those guys Abbott? That is a very good question. and i had seen several posts in the past where people said Leon had been cleared so shut up. Well I guess they didn't know what they were talking about. I think Leon is scared of Abbot. and he was lying about the time she left his house.

I agree with you portageville mo and it struck me odd too. Wonder what the old sherrif is covering up since he pushed the one girl to point such a strong finger at Keezer? I was glad she was equally involved in setting him free. I hope they do find the killer soon. He's walked the streets a free man almost 18 years too long!

Sounds as though you're pretty confident and I hope you're right. I know when it first happened and Keezer was arrested the kids said then they had the wrong guy. There was another name floating around at the time but it may have been speculations. It's been so long that I can't even remember the name. I just hope it gets solved soon. I think we need to keep Rick Walters in our prayers!

I agree but you got to have proof and that is what this town is lacking, yea everyone knows who did it but how can that be enough! I just hope that a certain someone comes forward and tells the truth that they lied about 17 years ago!! God help you to have the strength to stand up for what's right!! Someday soon you will rip A.M.L.

The facts are this, the only DNA found on this young lady was that of the the boy friend and Abbot.There was a struggle,if this young lady was trained in self defence.There is no way that just the DNA of her boy friend was under her nails from sex mixed with her blood,that sounds like an excuse for it being there to me,Im saying why wouldnt there be DNA from the perp.if there was a struggle.I dont think that she would have or anybody in there right mind would have pulled over on the interstate to talk or help anybody at that time of night.That tells me that she new this person or persons.Abbot says he only touched her on the shoulder.But his DNA was found on her in other places that tells me he is lieing,or at least not telling the whole truth.I feel like the sherriff knows what is going on or he is getting close.This was a murder cover up and I feel like either both or one of these two guys did this.And you guys have one hell of a good sherriff in your county,and he will solve this case.I dont know any of these folks myself.And I dont know if Ferrell had anything to do with it,but I would bet that Abbot,the boy friend or both had something to do with this.

Who did it? This is an anonymous message board, spill the beans. Those of us who don't live in Scott County want to know.

Wasn't there a rumor she was involved with a married man? Something about maybe being pregnant but she wasn't. It was in the articles before how come none of that was mentioned?

It's not my place to say who did it I don't have the proof to say it! But in the trials a man said in the stand that Abbott told him that he was with a friend and they got her to pull over and the friend got out and went up to her car they argued and he heard three gun shots and the guy took off to the mobile home park! I believe part of that is true but I think Abbott had more to do with it. I say that because she was beaten and drugged down the inbanknent now this girl was a fighter so I believe it took more than just one person to commit this murder, but I also think abbott was afraid for his own life. I have read all about thus case from newspapers and such and there is just one person to me that had a motive to do this, but he had a allaby but that allaby made no sense to me or anyone that I talked to. DNA is not going to be s factor in this case someone his allaby is what's going to get him caught or confession I think that's just me, I was only 4 years old when this happened but I grew up knowing about it and know the family and almost everyone involved and it has always fasinated me this whole case!

Seriously does that matter ? This girls murder is unsolved . Someone knows something and is refusing to tell . She and her family deserve justice in this case. My heart goes out to the family and friends.

There is NO doubt in my mind that the boyfriend and Abbott fellow are involved! I'm from Michigan and watching this on 48 hrs. last night was the first time I have ever even heard of the case, but just from what i saw and heard, there is NO doubt who is involved, they may not be the only ones, but they are involved.

There are alot of people involved but the question is who killed her! This family needs to know and the police need to catch him before someone else gets hurt or worse! Surprised that they haven't left the state now this is all coming out! Whoever did it is a monster, how can you sit there and watch a family be torn apart and not feel the need to confess, scary to me I can't imagine!

ah but he did confess,(Mark Abbott) his friend was on last night telling that he did. and this guy is an honorable guy, not a convict or a jailhouse snitch trying to get out of trouble!
