I am deeply saddened by this whole situation for many reasons. The Forest, God's Paradise, being used as a lure, something not new, but always sad.
Was it that as soon as she parked her car, she was doomed? Was it that physchological? Society must lawfully express its disappointment and sorrow about this. And let our lawmakers know that our society stands firmly against this type of behavior. I think our country has seen plenty in Iraq.
