How do fingerprints indicate he kidnapped a kid? his MO was murdering adult women, there's no knowing if the person that took the scooter is also the kidnapper. if you see 2 scooters unattended outside, you know how many people touch or steel things that aren't theirs? it would be nice for closure but this wouldn't give me confidence that it was him

Why cant the ADULTS stop criticizing others for doing something for themselves ?......If it is not hurting or threatening you in any way, why are YOU-the ADULT, mocking them ?
