Geez.....who would have thought, a young woman's vacation choice of leaving her small children home, and going alone to the middle-east for a photography adventure, might have been foolhardy?.....too bad, other great choices like hiking along the borders of Iran or North Korea, had already been done......The death of Common Sense, amoung human's has been a sad evolution.....

Don't worry soon there will be a connection in this straight to Obama.
There always is.
Everything that has happened in America since Obama was elected was his fault...directly.
The FBI will find the Obama connecion in this and then the GOP can spout their impeachment crap again.

Unfortunately it may be more to this story. I don't understand why her husband would let her travel alone to a third world country. I wouldn't.

why when in turkey did she leave there to go to the netherlands and germany for a few days???
to hook up with people she meet on the internet???

it's a shame that she got murdered, but i think that there is more to this story than what is being told to the public.

The DNA will lead to her killer. He will then beg to be extradited to the US.

You are right, this all sounds way too screwey...Whose wife, leave's small kids at home, during the school year, then goes off to edgy countries to take photos?....This marriage sounds fragile to me.....

There's a lot more to the story than what the family is telling. If they truly want to find out what happened to her and why then they need to be honest, especially the best friend who claimed she "backed out at the last minute". One source close to the investigation said ut “being cooperative and being helpful are two different things,” regarding her family "cooperating with investigators".

GIven her itinerary, and other facts revealed to date, that is a strong possibility.

Sound's like the Turkish police aren't taking that claim too seriously....

Is it true that she spent $10,000 on this trip, but her family had to scrounge up the cash to fly her body back home? If so, I wonder how many photos they'll have to sell to get that $10,000 back "for her children." I don't mean to be insensitive, but if half of the deails of this story are true, you have to feel terrible for the husband for planning a life with this woman.

So odd that her cellphone and purse were taken, but not her gold jewelry.....also wonder if they can find her phone by manufacturer's gps signal?.....

an hispanic(turkish looking) women, part time jobber..leaves two kids, husband, mother and father,for a first time vacation.. gets seen with mysterious men..her husband seems to have been cool with the idea... and the state department quickly assigns an important liason person, inmediate and kind of exagerated media coverage in the US.. quick Turkish government invovlement supposedly to clarify the circumstances.. boy that sounds like CIA to me..

I was done in by black hash, what was her drug of choice?
