Hi all, Many of you have probably heard or read in the past two days about the recent murder of Bobbie Jo Stinnett in Missouri, and that she was cut open to steal her baby girl, who was recovered on Friday and reunited with her daddy, Zeb. Lisa Montgomery has been arrested, and had admitted to killing Bobbie Jo and stealing her baby. For those that haven't heard about this, and want more information: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,141936,00.html & http://www.maryvilledailyforum.com/articles/2004/12/18/news/news2.txt While this story is so horrifying in itself, Bobbie, as a Rat Terrier breeder & Lisa have known each other for quite a long time through a Rat Terrier message board. After we adopted our Rat Terrier, Holly last July I had been a visitor to this board to learn more about the breed (that I knew nothing about when we got Holly) and had read posts made by both of these women. The board is a friendly & close group of people, and like here, and many boards, no one could have guessed something like this would happen. Lisa knew that Bobbie was pregnant, and had her "plan" very thought out. She contacted Bobbie as a "Darlene Fischer" to make arrangements to come and see one of her Rat Terrier puppies for sale... when what she actually wanted was Bobbie's baby! Like everyone, I am horrified and sickened that something like this could happen... and the only thing I can think to do is put a "reminder" out to everyone doing business online... be VERY careful about any personal information you share online! If you have a business where you need to deal with a potential customer in person, make sure you have someone "with" you... don't meet with a customer alone! If Bobbie had to die like this, the only purpose I can see it is to make others aware of the dangers out there... even from those we *think* we can trust! So... for some reason that saying comes to mind... "Only the Good Die Young" and Bobbie was only 23 years old... I am just so sick about this!
