    Brooke, Thank you for keeping on top of this story, please continue to stay on this story, as long as it takes, justice must be served. There are other young women, other people, struggling with similar issues right now, they need to know that we care about them, all of them, and the best way to show that is to honor Ashley, that her numerous cries for help and for justice will not go unheard. Nothing, for the rest of our lives, will be more important than this.

    Seems that your stories are MAKING THEM act, please keep the light shined on them. Thank you again.

    The nerve on mother blaming the authorities. Ashley was abused by both of her step fathers. If her mom chose her men wisely, her daughter wouldn't be victim in the first place.

    The nerve on Daisy, blaming it on the mother. Try and read for comprehension. The authorities turned their backs on Ashley. SHAME ON YOU

    Great post. I always have a hard time getting started investing in real estate. The biggestthing that I learned was that you need to just do it.
