So this is my sappy post where I introduce myself. The story of how I found this place is a little more interesting though, so I shall start there.
Back in early 2009, my friend's daughter was murdered. Her murderers were posted on the site "People you see in hell" upon looking at that site and some of the comments on it, I realized that most people who viewed that one preferred this one, because this one is updated more frequently. I made my way over here, but the story I was looking for hadn't been posted. However, there were many more stories I was very interested in. I'm a Criminal Justice major and this kind of stuff catches and holds my attention. I was a casual reader for the next couple years. Sometime last year, I mentioned an article I read on here to one of my friends at work. Having nothing better to do at work---like working, you know--- she made her way to this site as well. On one of the articles, she saw a regular member post a comment about an incident that had happened in these forums years previously. She googled it, and found the thread. It was a thread by "Owd Scrat" in which she claimed her son was sick, conned everyone, only to have it all be lies. We read that thread for days. I just recently found it bookmarked again on my computer at work, and made my way over to these forums. Promise I'm not your next Owd, but that's how I found this place.
I scanned through the threads and stumbled upon many on Caylee Anthony. I wish I had been in these forums during that time so I could have had people to talk to while it was all going on. I watched that trial every single day. I went to Orlando the week the verdict was read, and I have pictures of the Anthony home as well as the site where Caylee was found. I did not plan to be there for the verdict, but I had already planned a Disney trip there with my husband and sons and it was a coincidence.
Anyway... My name is Amanda. I'm a CJ major, going back to school after a lonnng break in which I had two children, got married, and a lot of other fun stuff. I look forward to chatting with you all.
