It was disgusting how their family was treated. It seems very racist.

Online obsession, "citizen detectives" with zero investigative or journalistic qualifications except having listened to podcasts and deciding who is guilty and then seeking out and contacting family members is cruel, vicious and stupid acts of attention seekers. It revictimizes parents, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, grandparents and other family and friends of those who are missing or murdered. It is emotional assault on families living every day crushed under grief and loss and it is abusive. If it is not a true tip (NOT THEORY) made to law enforcement, I wish there was a way to have those people prosecuted for contacting family with "I think" or "I believe" half-baked theories after listening to podcasts or after following a missing person's site or page. If a person cannot restrain themselves from giving their theories on an unsolved case, then CONTACT LAW ENFORCEMENT NOT HURTING FAMILIES.

I really don't think "favored the sketch" means the same as "resembled the sketch" which is what you're trying to say....

Ten minutes of the same statement/story being repeated over and over and over and over. Too much!
