Has anyone else been following this story? Over the weekend, the girl's mother claimed she didn't feel well and was taking a nap when her daughter vanished from the house. But now reports say mom was out and her brother, the girl's uncle, was babysitting. And his explanation about what happened is so bizarre it sounds truly unbelievable.Of course, now it appears the girl's mother lied in her initial recounting of the circumstances - to protect her own brother?? Ugh.

Sad but not shocked the story just wasn't right from the start.

Omg, I did not expect that to be the outcome of this case ... I honestly believed the first story. How awful :(

I live less than an hour away from where this happened and have been following the story from the beginning, however I hadn't heard the latest about the mother lying or what the uncle says happened. I had a bad feeling that she wouldn't be found alive given the various circumstances. What a sad thing to happen to a poor innocent little girl.

I knew it was fishy. 7 year old don't wander out of the house for no reason.

I live in STL, so this story has been all over the news and FB. It is incredibly sad. Unfortunately, all to frequently there are family members involved. 

May little Willow rest in peace :(
