    juppinjack - "to live as a family, you ...MARRY!"

    A family is not created when a piece of paper binds them; but when the heart binds them.

    Still...parents show their children the highest of honors when they marry one another.

    God bless.

    I would imagine she wasn't living at home with her parents because she had a baby and was trying to be responsible and live as a family. I wonder if they have any suspects? I agree as well, why has it taken 3 months to realize she was stabbed? Interesting!

    I'm sorry.. my other question would be.. why couldn't they tell that she was stabbed.. and that most likely that is what caused her death by looking at her.. 11 times.. that's quite a lot of holes.. I would think that by that many stab wounds it would be obvious.... now.. a poisoning?? yeah.. I would think that would take some time.

    This is terrible. Why wasn't that girl living at home with her parents? Is the baby ok?
