    Huh. I thought she died a few years back. Well, I'm wrong.

    I don't when the photo of them together was taken but they look like they just got off the Ferris Wheel after having a great time at the County Fair.

    I don't give her a pass either, she was complicit, but she'd be foolish to admit it at this late date, she got off light, so she should just really shut up about it.

    Any updates on her condition? I'm kinda hoping that she succumbed to her injuries.

    I know she says that she was under his spell, so to speak, but if I'm remembering correctly, they killed her family and spent time in the house and she sent people away saying the house was under quarantine. To me, she had the chance to get away right there, her family was already gone so he couldn't hurt them any more. I'm not saying she is as guilty as him but she isn't an innocent little flower either from shows I have seen and all.

    No updates at all. After the initial reports the family probably clamped down on releasing info.

    I have to say that its very hard for a grown woman to leave or get out of a controlling abusive relationship. I can't imagine what it was like for this woman when she was just 14. I believe she had some culpability but not to the extent of what she was accused of.
