    I really hope they find her. After this long, It's hard to be optimistic as to her well-being but the family needs closure either way. :(

  • Who is it

    That sketch looks like a couple of sexual predators I know about.

    One of them is Gregory S. (I won't put last name here, mostly because I'll be censored but also because they may be the wrong guy and first name/m.i. is enough for cops to figure out), a registered sex offender from Charlottesville, Virginia. Although his hair has been white a long time, he could have dyed that or worn a wig. He was suspected by some locals in the Morgan Harrington case, which one P.I. thinks is a part of a "petite blonde serial killer" crime spree that includes Jessica. But I think the cops there ruled him out because the DNA came back a black guy and the witness who saw the suspect in a New Jersey car said that the white guys in the car didn't look anything like him. She actually had been victimized by one of them before, and he looked more like the top ten fugitive Glen Godwin.

    Now, that rapist who looks like Glen Godwin is interesting, because he was seen with a guy name Glenn W. in Orwigsburg, Pennsylvania who was accused of drugging and then gang-raping one of his customers there in 2008. He looks just like the sketch, too, and although he's balding with light brown hair, his friends have been known to use wigs in their rapes and he's also been seen by a past victim with his hair done up just like that — wavy and dyed blonde. His daughter, who many locals suspected he had sexually abused before she left home shortly before the 2008 rape, looked almost exactly like Jessica.

    I just have to say this — people in the Reading, PA area thought it was so cool when Glenn W. circulated those rape videos. But you know what watching those and supporting that crime choice gets you? This type of crimes — girls getting abducted and murdered. If you've watched that stuff and especially if you've paid for any of it, you've helped keep these guys in business. If you can, turn people like that in. You'll be doing everyone a favor, and the daughter you save may be your own.
