Thanks for bringing that up. Prosecutors usually clear this stuff with the families before they propose any deals.
Did I hear that he used to be FBI? Maybe I heard wrong was in the other room...why do people go hiking etc alone all the time? With all these girls the first thing you hear is how strong they are and with this one she knew martial arts. I think in this day and age you should NEVER go any where alone especially hiking...just from getting an injury you would be all alone. This story is just horrific.
