I know we’ve seen it all our lives, but the evil man is capable of committing is still staggering.

How can someone take away the work of 18 years just for a moment’s random thrill? I just don’t understand it.

Prayers for the family. How can anyone oppose the death penalty for such a crime? This sort of thing makes me physically ill.

This breaks my heart. I will say a prayer for her and her family. I know we live in quote an quote: a civilized society????? and this is not Iran but at least they know how to handle their vermin of society: a while back - a serial-child-predator-murderer was caught, strung by his neck on a crane and the families of his victims took turns in pelting him with stones and whipping him, now that is justice, something I know I will never see in this country!!!!!!! When will this sickness and madness end??????

I think our ancestors were wiser than us. As morbid as they would seem, legal public hangings served a purpose. Executions of monsters that take 15-20 years to happen and then take place behind closed doors lose the power to deter other monsters.

Once she gets old enough to shoot, teach her to use a gun. When she turns 21, get her the hand gun of her choice and a carry permit.

Thanks for the link, it does appear that the police have a suspect in mind, who lives very close to the area where the body was found.

My sympathy and prayers for the Smith family.

It never is going to be a right time to say this, so I’m going to say it now anyway and get it over with.

Young ladies and above should not be wearing shorts (in her case short shorts) and tank tops in public. It’s great for indoors but not in public.

Cover up and blend in with the public.

Just hand the perp over to me with 15 feet of chainlink fencing, a masterlock and a boat. He’ll never be seen again.

And young men and above should not abduct, rape, and/or assault young women, regardless of the young woman’s attire.

Why don’t we start there - with the CRIMINAL, instead of the victim?

Years ago, I thought that all nice girls should carry a .38 revolver. I’ve since changed my mind. Now I think all nice girls should carry a .45 semiauto.

I live close to where she was found. Ordered a Taser the night it happened. On the Missouri side we also have the right to carry a gun concealed. Kansas does not. Talked to my girls and stressed the importance of throwing keys and doing whatever to not be put in car because if they get you in a car you are already dead. Prayers for the family.

“And young men and above should not abduct, rape, and/or assault young women, regardless of the young woman’s attire.”

You are missing the point because you want to and prefer to argue.

By dressing in a less revealing manner, one blends in with the rest of the population and lessens one’s chance of being singled out by a pervert.

There will always be perverts; therefore, it is the responsibility of potential victims (women) not call attention to themselves by what they wear.

If you can’t understand something so simple, I can’t help you.

It is horrible. There is no motive here. How could there be a motive. She wasnt rich, I am sure she didnt have over 60 dollars on her, if that. There was nothing to gain by killing her. I am sure she didnt do anything to ruin the life of the killer and make him mad. She was just a beautiful 18 year old who did nothing to deserve such a terrible ending to life.

This case really gets to me. She is the exact same age as my g/f Donna. and I must say, she kind of resembles her. It is just terrible,

There is some true evil in this world folks.

R.I.P.

You presume too much about me. That said, we both know plenty of girls and women are abducted who are wearing less-revealing clothes. happens all the time. You think women don’t get abducted in the winter?

Your statement about covering up to blend in hints at an assumption that women are abducted because of something they’re doing incorrectly - based on your set of rules: the way they dress, walk, talk, act, and that “blending in” will somehow protect them. You are mistaken.

I’m done with this discussion. I’m terribly sad that this young woman was harmed. And I’m sure a Muslim forum somewhere would welcome you with open arms.

I have been a little surprised at how many people suggested guns in lieu of karate for a 5 year old. I may heed the thought.

Tell them to kick forcefully at the man’s kneecap. Puts him out of the fight, and he will be unable to pursue even if inclined. It doesn’t take alot to bust up a knee.

young ladies that wear shorts and tank tops DESERVE to be rapped and killed, is that what you're saying....

You would be a hit in the Middle East...there fathers and brothers, he men all, routinely kill their dtrs or sisters for allowing themselves to be raped....

sometimes, I think we deserve Islam....

people like you, with your attitude, are going to "get what you want and good and hard" someday...

.

I dunno

Police report was kinda “PC” too

Allegedly 26 years old

Shaved head

Beard/mustache of several ethnic groups

This photo and the lousy video are both the same and different in some ways

Black long shorts

Untucked white t-shirt

Open sandals it appears

No info on previous arrests so far

Appearance also typical of many convicts &/or drug gang members

Not the brightest bulb - Hall crossed state lines to for some reason and there also disposed of Kelsey Smith without burial or any attempts to hide her body

There is more about this case we may never know

One immediate thing to consider is that Kelsey Smith’s Buick was returned to within a few blocks of the Target Store within a few hours after she was kidnapped

How did the person who returned her car get back to another vehicle (not necessarily the dark 70s Chevy PU truck) &/or to his or her residence or other vehicle(s)

I’d look for any relatives or friends or previous HS classmates of this sub-human creep that are or have ever been employed at that Target Store or that live in the area

Other unsolved similiar cases in Kansas and Missouri should be looked into

I’d say the FBI is looking at several other involved suspects right now
