      Most of the deaths of children due to sexual abuse could be prevented, if they would just pass a law to not let the freaks out of jail or give them an island and let them go to work doing something useful away from children.. It’s been said time and time again..there is no cure. and now another family has to endure this horrible tragedy..

      that’s a great theory, and I don’t disagree, but in this instance, how would that have helped save sandra, since melissa was never convicted of child molestation in the past???

      She wasn’t convicted of child molesting..but why would a 28 year old woman do this to another child months before..drugging her..?

      Police said Huckaby was named in a January police report about the four-hour disappearance of a 7-year-old girl from the same mobile home park, CNN affiliate KOVR reported.

      After Huckaby returned the girl, the girl had to be taken to a hospital because she was under the influence of a strong muscle relaxant.

      Police were called to the mobile home park after the girl’s mother reported her missing, according to KOVR. Police discovered that the girl was at a park with Huckaby. Huckaby said she had permission to take the girl, but the girl’s family disputed that claim.

      About five hours after the girl was returned to her family, they discovered that she was under the influence of the drug.

      “Her speech was slurred. She could barely walk. She could barely stand,” the girl’s older sister told KOVR.

      Police could not prove that Huckaby had drugged the girl and no arrest was made then.

      On April 11, Huckaby was arrested and charged with killing and raping Sandra Cantu.
