In Honor of Brianna Denison
Another young person found dead. The 20 year old college student, Brianna Denison disappeared last month, Jan. 20th, from an apartment where she was sleeping on a sofa. The investigators have linked her disappearance to other assault cases in that area through DNA. Yesterday, Reno police were led to a vacant field in the Southern part of Reno, about 8 miles away from the house that Briana was taken from. They just announced that the body found was identified as Briana. The cause of death was strangulation. My heart goes out to her family. In the article I have open in my browser from the Nevada Appeal it says that the family asks for blue ribbons to be hung to honor Brianna. My blue ribbon hangs right here on this blog and I also will be hanging a blue ribbon out on my front gate shortly.
I hope that the police can find the serial rapist who has done this soon, before he kidnaps and kills again. Up until now, his crimes were kidnap, assault and rape. And now he's escalated his crimes to add murder to the list. How soon will he feel the "urge" again? He needs to be caught before he strikes again.
There are too many missing people out there. Somewhere. Some gone by their own choice, but so terribly many others who are gone because there are sick people who have no regard for human life. Just look at the list of missing persons on the America's Most Wanted website. Or the National Center for Missing Adults website. And then you have the missing children, look at the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children website. There are hundreds of websites devoted to finding the missing people. It's enough to break your heart.
