    I doubt he's a friend of the Mother's anymore, or to the little girl for that matter.

    Watched an account of this one on TV last evening. Some time ago a friend told the mother of inappropriate behavior between the 12 year old and the mothers boyfriend. For the life of me i cannot understand why otherwise savvy women put their daughters at risk by having scummy boyfriends.

    That girl looks a lot older than 12. I ran into a 13 year old the other day that looked 20. Glad I don't have daughters. There will be enough trouble educating my sons to keep their hands in their pockets.

    The girl and her abductor were spotted in a San Francisco grocery store late yesterday. A clerk called the SF police and the perp was arrested.

    Missing Brittany Smith coming home; Jeffrey Easley arrested in San Francisco

    Roanoke County's police chief said a San Francisco store clerk recognized Brittany Smith and Jeffrey Easley.


    A hunt for missing Roanoke County 12-year-old Brittany Smith and her accused abductor ended Friday when a San Francisco store clerk recognized them from a wanted poster and called the police, who found them near a tent.

    Brittany wasn't physically hurt, said Roanoke County Police Chief Ray Lavinder. Her slain mother's live-in boyfriend, Jeffrey Easley, 32, was nabbed without a fight and charged on a Roanoke County arrest warrant with abduction. Roanoke County authorities will swiftly move to extradite him to Virginia, Lavinder said.
    Next questions: What, if any, role did the 12 year-old have in her mother's murder? When was her mother killed? When did the two actual leave the area? Did she go "willingly" (albeit not of legal age to make that decision)? etc? etc?

    This case is far from solved.

    Glad they caught him. She appeared to be going along with him in the Walmart shopping video. She could have easily ran, yelled for help, etc. I mean he already killed her mother, what did she have to lose by trying to get away? Just seems to me she wasn't too resistant about going along with him.

    Very hard to categorize "willing" or "unwilling" when it comes to 12 year olds. Easily manipulated, easily scared and coerced. I truly hope she had no active part in her mom's death, that could be a difficult scenario for LE to sort out.

    Even if LE sorts it out, the courts will have a problem resolving it.

    Well I hope that's not the case, could be she was just scared to do anything or act so as to draw attention to them out of fear that he may do something crazy to hurt her or someone else.

    Garden City man 'could have assisted' in Tina Smith slaying, warrant says

    By Amanda Codispoti | The Roanoke Times

    A man who police say bought Jeffrey Easley's red SUV just before Easley departed Roanoke County with 12-year-old Brittany Smith "could have assisted" in the slaying of Brittany's mom, Roanoke police said today in a search warrant affidavit.
