    Wow, everybody was feeling so sorry for her and she was nothing but a drug-addicted junkie. Ran off with a guy because he had drugs.

  • Questions

    Idk..something seems fishy about this..who was with her? Who brought (and left her) there? I suspect there is more to this story. ..

      Yes I agree. This girl was a A student , and a outstanding young lady. I will give her the benifit of the doubt until until it is proven otherwise. The step dad is a convicted criminal and known cociane and heroine user. I will not give him the benifit of the doubt until proven otherwise.

        Grades mean nothing. It’s incredibly dumbed down, so everybody “wins” in the little tee-ball generation. Worthless – most fail out of “college” in the first year, because all they know how to do is cheat in the first place. And do their drugs.

          If you are on heroin you aren’t going to make A’s I’m college. My guess is you never went or went to community college where they hold your hand.

    Acute is just a nice way to say overdose. Somebody was getting high with her, they should just come forward and tell the truth.

    She undeniably had a stalker. Goes missing after stating she is afraid. You are her kidnapper and don’t want to be caught. So what do you do? Inject her with heroin to make it look like she overdosed. It’s okay though. If I’m right and the police find that out, all of you who are stupidly thinking it still isn’t a tragedy either way will be the same ones asking for prayers for her.

    I’m sure she use drugs, died, and then put herself behind a house.. whether she did it to herself or not someone still put her or left her behind that house.
