A Few Personal Thoughts…

A Few Personal Thoughts…

When Jessica Lunsford was missing I worked for her family on their website and forum. I was there from day one till just before it closed. I’m not related. Just good friends with the family. I’m not going to tell any deep dark secrets here. So if that is what your looking for turn to another site. This is what I think, feel and know. So here it goes.

Can Jessie Get Justice? In my opinion no.

No matter what happens at the trial, what the judge let in and kept out, Jessie won’t be back. Will Couey be found guilty? Many say “Oh hell yes, everyone knows what he did!” But do they? I know many of you want to think that everyone in the USA knows who Jessica Lunsford is but the truth is, they don’t.

A lot of people never heard of John Couey, Citrus County Florida, Jessica’s Law or Mark Lunsford. In our own little perfect worlds we think “Everyone has heard his confession, they know what happened.” Sorry nope.

I firmly believe they will be able to find an impartial jury who doesn’t know a thing about this case, Florida or not. Switching counties will make a difference. Unless the prosecutor has some very strong, firm evidence, Couey will walk. And if he doesn’t walk the defense has a case for appeal already. What you ask?

Fruit from the poisonous tree. It is a legal term that means “anything discovered from one tainted piece of evidence can’t be used” So they need to prove inevitable discovery of Jessie‘s body, and I mean prove. If not everything found from Jessie can be fought in retrial. So inevitable discovery of Jessie MUST be proven or the mattress, DNA and other details will be worthless. And Couey will be a free man.

Not totally free, he will be a marked man. There are enough people who do know him and what he did to make him quake in his sandals. I can see a big red target now. His conscious will never bother him. He has been through this before with other children. As far as anyone knows Jessie is the first one he has murdered.

She will be the last.

So back to my original thought. Can Jessie Get Justice?

Only if we could turn back time and made sure Couey never got out of jail in the first place. No amount of locks, barking dogs, people in the house, rain or training would change what happened. It’s the Laws that need to not only be changed but ENFORCED!

Jessie is gone.

What justice can there be.

Help Bring Ruth Hoffman Home

Help Bring Ruth Hoffman Home

Ruth Sharon Hoffman disappeared from her family after a brutal rape in June, 1986. She had a pre-existing medical condition which required medication. Without taking the proper dosage, she might not remember anything about her family.

In 2003, she was located through public records in Detroit, Michigan. However, due to privacy laws, only the authorities can access those records to find her. Ruth's daughter, Debbie, is extremely ill and is trying to access this information through a petition requesting that Mike Cox, the Attorney General for the State of Michigan, complete the investigation regarding her mother's disappearance.
