@buaci - I am in complete agreement that this is all reprehensible - I was only commenting that wording in this story is misleading. If you really think I would have commented about the holidays doing that to some people knowing the circumstances you probably believe I am a callous individual, but you don't know me so that is fine make your assumptions.

The victim in this story is the same woman who was reported walking into traffic on 395 Nov 6. There was a comment about "the holidays will do that to some people". Now, we find out that woman was kidnapped and assaulted. Not drunk or trying to commit suicide by walking into cars. As a community we should be more caring and thoughtful. Stop and help. One person is all it could take to save another person's life and that starts with you and me. Be aware and be kind.

A woman was taken-(kidnapped), fought her way free, and JenniPearce and Kramer can only criticize about the punctuation and verse of the paragraphs. I hope she isn't selling cars and we all know Kramer is ridiculous. This woman is not dead or worse. What were these two commenting when Elizabeth Smart and the girls in California were abducted, tortured, raped and held for years? This woman is alive and I pray the best for her for the rest of her life. Shame on you both.

incorrect assumption from this garbled report, no "released" anywhere in text. "body" implies charges pending. story (as written) implies they were arrested at the jail. Good thing Nv4 ain't the DA; just a pawn nonetheless

The woman's 'body' was found - but then she was treated and released from the hospital? Usually 'body' implies a decedent.
