The newspaper reporter needs

The newspaper reporter needs to be a better proofreader as he said the woman "new" the man, rather than "knew" the man.

I noticed the story about sexual battery at Spirit Creek Middle School. Is this boy using the skills learned through the teacher/cop sex program there?

Good question EMAGUY? I

Good question EMAGUY? I wondered the same thing. And what I don't understand is why would the man drive the lady to Windsor Spring Rd and then let her go? Did he just want to get caught?

Wasnt school out on the 22nd? How do we know she didnt force herself into the trunk? Im thinking it would have been a lot easier if 'smiley' would have just asked for a ride.

With all that information, he

With all that information, he shouldn't be too too hard to find. It does leave out who the car belonged to but insinuates that it was his. getalife: maybe in the printed version it said "new" but here it says "knew". But maybe "new" was correct, being as they were at a hotel & all she "knew" was his nickname. Pretty sure school in CC was out on the 22nd but not sure about RC. My youngest is almost 22; don't pay much attention to those kinda things. I was on vacation, so I wouldn't even notice the busses.
