NEW BOOK LEADS TO PASTOR’S ARREST IN MURDER OF GIRL, 8, WALKING TO BIBLE CAMP
há 13 horas
39:45Eight-year-old Gretchen Harrington leaves home, walking to vacation bible school at a church just a half mile from her home. Usually, Gretchen is accompanied by her two sisters, but this day, she walks alone. The older girls stay home. It was just after 9 a.m. when Pastor Harold Harrington waved goodbye. Two hours passed before he found out Gretchen never made it to VBS. Hundreds of people took part in the search for the little girl. A police helicopter continuously flew overhead. Teams of searchers combed the hillside of the community. Friends and family hand out fliers with Gretchen’s picture on it. Some witnesses said they had seen Gretchen outside a car, talking to someone, but nothing came of the lead. Two months later, a jogger found the skeletonized human remains of a little girl. The Harringtons confirmed the clothing found with the body as Gretchen’s. It was only 20 minutes from her home. Gretchen’s manner of death is ruled a homicide. The girl's skull has been fractured by multiple vicious blows. An autopsy does not reveal sex assault, but police believe that was the motive. Now, years later, a new book leads to the capture of a murderer.

há 2 dias
39:39Ruby Franke makes shocking claims in court. The mom accused of child abuse, claims that one of her minor children sexually abused siblings, and molested several other family members, and children in the neighborhood, for years. Franke alleges one of her children began looking at pornography at just 3 years old. Franke says two children played a "patting game" with each other, but did not give details to the court about that game. Franke provided no proof of her allegations. The judge then said that her alleged abusive child 'will then need to be placed in a home with no other children.'
