The reason I am following this case so closely is while even though right this minute there are many children being abused and probably will never see justice served, there's a chance in this case - and there's a chance that this guy will not go on to harm another child. - plus - this guy gives me the creeps -it is rare the molester/ child rapist is unknown to the victim - more times than not they have created a relationship with the child in some form - gained trust - not with this one -this child was ripped from her world - thrown into the back of a van and then had her innocence ripped away - thankfully the degenerate who did this didn't take her life - but, with people like this - their crimes escalate...whose to say what would happen to the next child - remember Nevaeh Buchanan? Another case I closely followed - her little body dumped by a river side and concrete poured over her? Two years later and we still don't know who did that one
