i went to school in mitchell like the rest of you...thats besides the point, any how i'm sure everyone got my point. i dont think i'm tough either but to set on ur fat ass and say that the victims and they're family are going to get josh/john is bullshit. flex jumped the gun again im sure. if your tight w/ the victims ask them about who they described (a 6'2" white male slender build w/ blonde hair blue eyes)gee that doesnt sound like josh or john. so just keep running your fat mouth like just about every person in mitchell. thats why im sad to say im from there, that towns just full of sniches and bitches. u ppl make me f'kn sick is this all you ppl have to do?sit on the phone or on the computer and gossip? thats sad....every one of us live in glass houses. and wtf is this a grammer class?i'll bet anything this illierate makes more money than anybody on here and i'd put that on my mothers grave. please do yourself a favor, get a life so as you dont need to be up in everyone elses...

This is to anonymous, whoever you are, as for my intentions, it was not to cause problems for the victims of this crime. I was merely clarifying who the girl was. I haven't a clue as to what kind of info she provided, whether for or against the alleged criminals. But I will tell you what I do know. And thats the fact that people who do things like these two men did, usually crumble when they are picked up and spill their guts. Not only will they tell on themselves when the pressure is put on them, but they will tell things that are not even related to said event. People who can not control habits and turn into addicts are weak willed or these addictions would not get the best of them. It was not my intention to cause problems for the victims or Cassandra. I was merely stating who she was, a fact that would be really hard to hide considering the size of our town. And if you are not prepared to do the time, then don't do the crime. Also I do not know John Pickett, but how smart is it to go around breaking into other peoples property to steal. If you want to do drugs thats your own business, but get a job to support your habit.

Whoa, whoa, whoa... since when do I have a responsibility to protect anyone? Especially someone who'd probably (if what has been said here is true) make a statement on me if she thought it'd get her man outta trouble. I don't know if she's tellin' or not, which is why I haven't said a word about it until now. Besides, I don't like snitches. Cassandra -- if you read this, feel free to gimme a call and straighten things out if anything here is incorrect. The only way I'm protecting anyone here is by protecting their identity so that they may freely speak the truth without fear of reprise or retribution. That's it. -- Webmaster, Mitchell News

Cassandras last name is Ping.The last account I had of her, she was working at Mitchell Manor in the kitchen. She and Josh Engler had a baby back sometime in the winter. It was announced in the new citizens section of the Saturday paper. She did live in one of John Gass's rentals on Grissom Ave. But I think she moved. Also She is a black girl. Not being rascist or anything, just thought I would mention that fact.

Um, you realize how absurd that sounds and how infeasible it would be, right? -- Webmaster, Mitchell News

You are very right in thinking that Randy did NOT crack the case!!!!....Randy did NOT crack the case, he recieved information from the "victims" that lead him to the criminals..
