"Police said they had renewed their search for an accomplice in the kidnapping after Natascha confirmed an eye-witness report that a second man had been at the wheel of Priklopil's white van when he snatched her.
Is there another missing little girl for the second man?
Freaks like this are one of the reasons I watch my child like a hawk. I stand at the corner every morning and make sure he gets to his bus stop alright and that there are other children there with him.
He and I talk about this kind of stuff often. It's hard to know where to draw the line between warning him and scaring the living crap out of him. We want him to be aware that there are indeed monsters in human skin walking the earth, but we also want him to be able to sleep nights.
It's his job to 'sleep like a baby' and our job to lay awake nights worrying.
