Her oldest child is 15... doing the math... she was 14 at the time :-(

What blows my mind...... She was abducted by this guy AND HIS WIFE!!! In 1991.... He was paroled in 1999.... so obviously... during that time........ his wife had this girl... and in 99 her 5 year old child.....

Why wasn't this guy being watched closer? Seriously, how the hell does a guy on parole, a registed sex offender.... manage to keep this girl and the children he fathered with her... out of the eye of people???

There aren't enough years left in this poor woman's life for therapy to heal the wounds she has suffered. As for her daughters, well, I just can't even imagine. I hate this man; I hate his wife who is 100% as liable as he. I wish they would publish her picture too. He is a monster, but he doesn't bear that title alone.

It was the only story in town on BBC News as well, sadly there's a feeding frenzy to it thanks to the Fritzl tangent. I could have done without hearing the guy's voice, he really is asking for death in any other jail apart from Coalinga with that crap he was spouting.

The one thing that really strikes me about this is the different way the media has handled this case compared to what they did to Shawn Hornbeck when he was found. No one has has blamed this woman. No one has accused her of enjoying it. No one has even asked why she did not try to escape. They have treated her with the decency she deserves. It is almost the polar opposite of how they treated Hornbeck, even though both were the same age when they were kidnapped and experienced almost the exact same thing.

I noticed that as well, and I would love to believe the media had learned a lesson from the Hornbeck case and it wasn't because female victims are never questioned in the same way as male ones, but the difference this time is that the victim's not on Oprah at the parents' behest and they are only running the CGI'd picture showing what she is believed to look like rather than a real photo (at least in the UK they are, I haven't checked CNN).

So it's a combination of things, not to mention the cops are taking some flak, that's removed the complete focus on the victim(s) as there was in the Hornbeck case.

I noticed on an ABC News report last night various questions being brought up on why she just didn't leave. Of course those questions weren't being asked of her but being bandied about by the various reporters, paid media experts, and interviewed officials. Doesn't look like this case has totally escaped ignorant insensitivity.
