I'm not suppose to talk about this because it's an open investigation but I can't keep it in any longer. The night after Christmas i went out to meet up with a few friends. Dd was with her dad so I figured eh why not go have some fun.
Anyways I meet up with my friend B. He's like hey this is my new room mate/girlfriend. Her name is_____. We got talking and decided to go get something to eat. She asked how old I was which kinda seemed odd but okay. I told her and she goes sweet you're only 2 years old then I am, I'm 20. I had a shocked look on my face so she asked how old I thought she was I replied and told her that she only looked 16 (keep this in mind).
She went on to tell me she her husband hand passed away overseas. After she told me all about that she suddenly changed the subject. Which was no big deal I just figured it was a touchy subject for her.
Later on our friend D shows up. As soon as he got there he asked her what her name was and how she was. She said the same thing she told me. D goes "oh well there is a missing 13 year old from _____. She said over and over if wasn't her, she's 20. He let it go. We all went over to D's house. We hung out there for a bit, B and his girl said they were going to the gas station for a soda and would be right back. After they left d asked if I had heard about the missing 13 year old. I said no I don't have cable and my phone is broken, I hadn't gone anyway prior to meeting up with B so I hadn't gotten a chance to listen to the radio.
He starts explaining that he rode with B Christmas night to the town the girl went missing from to pick up B's new girlfriend. He also told me what he had heard on the radio while he was at work. By this time B, his girlfriend they had our friend T with them. The girlfriend comes over to me and was freaking out asking me to color her hair. I told her no it would turn out good.
When they walked back i asked if she had fb she said no. T asked for an id she said she didn't have one she lost it. D pulled up the article on his phone. He starts in on her. Asking if she was sure sure was 20 and that her was is ____. She said yes. He said that's funny because this says you're 13 from ____. He starts reading the description of what the girl that went missing was wearing. Showed everyone the picture even B. She is still saying it's not her. I looked at her and told her that she is dumb she has on the same jacket, purse and shows that the 13 year old was wearing and the picture looked just like her. B Looks at us and says it's not her the eyes don't match and what she is wearing doesn't matter.
B and the girlfriend then get up and suddenly they are tired and were ready to go to bed. D, T, and I were sat there after they left and talked about what we should do because we thought it was her. We agreed to go to the cops our thought process was that if it was her we did the right thing.
So we went to the police station. We explain that we think we found the missing 13 year old. D pulled up the article showed the cop the picture and thank god for T because he took a pic of her at D's house. The cop looked at both pictures and asked if we could show her where she was.
We get over to the trailer park and told them which trailer it was. We parked down a few trailers and waited. The cop comes out after about 15 mins and says it was her and if it had be a week later B would be in a lot of trouble. He said that since they met over the internet he it would be hard telling how old she really was.
B comes up and at first looked pissed but says thank you. I told him I was sorry but I was just doing what I felt was right and what i as a mother would want someone to do has it been my child. We left and went back to over to D's house to wait for my best friend to get off work. B had to go to the police station to be questioned.
He shows up about an hour later by this time it's midnight. He started talking about everything he was asked. He told us the asked if he had sex with her and he told them he wanted a lawyer.
Then next day I was at Walmart in line to check out. B spots me comes over and tells me he's leaving. O.o I asked where he was going, he said he didn't know but he wasn't sticking around to go down for something he didn't do.
To me that screams guilty! Well I had gotten a message from the cop we reported it to go down the Monday after to answer some questions. B found out and asked me not to go, told me I didn't have to. I replied with I have nothing to hide so I'm going. He then asked me not to say anything that would get him in trouble. Meaning not tell the cops that he admitted to having sex with her 4 times. By the way he is 24.
Well I went and answered a few questions. The cop told me he needed to do a recorded interview with me. Okay no big deal. He said not to talk about this and if anyone asked if I had to give a statement tell them no. I answered the questions again and then some. He also told me that there are 2 cases against him. One in her county for kidnapping and then one in our county for rape.
A friend met a girl pof she said she was 20 he went and picked her and all her stuff up. Turns out she's really a missing 13 year old from another town. 2 of my friends and I went to the cops. He has 2 charges against him. I had to give a recorded interview. He tried asking me to lie for him. I can't talk about it in real life and so I posted it because I needed to get it out. I left out names and places so it shouldn't be a big deal.
Sorry for typos it's 2am and I am tired but can't sleep.
