      Reno Teen, Brianna Denison, Believed to Be Kidnapped


      “News of yet another female college student disappearance can’t help but bring to mind other recent kidnappings. The most famous one of late is that of Natalee Holloway. Almost three years ago, on May 30, 2005, Holloway disappeared while vacationing in Aruba with classmates on a senior trip. Suspects included some young men with whom she was hanging out. No trace of her has ever been found, and Aruba just ended its probe for any further information.”

      Apparently,the reporters didn’t see the mediums on Aruban TV…pity!!!

      Hate to jump the gun but sounds like some Latin guy might need to be put down. Oh yes of course permanently !

      This is so sad for the family may we have our vengeance soon.

      I think she’s okay…


      hope she’ll be found soon.

      I don’t think anyone is going to kill her.

      Atleast, that is what I pray…

      This guy dropped her off. Blood on her pillow. So she got to her friend’s house. The guy comes back for her? She invites him in? Or shades of Italy and the “friends” are involved?

      Please stay positive and keep talking and praying for Brianna! SHE IS COMING HOME!!

      The motive for the crime was rape. From what I have heard and read, rape causes such huge psychological and emotional trauma.

      I really think that this whole thing was out of proportion. I’m a world class cyclist and I think my opinion matters. Women like her probably deserve what they get. This guy didnt just pick her out of a crowd. Somehow she asked for it. They all do.
