On page 16 people were wondering about pictures that were posted and where the police were looking. I can say for a fact in regards to the very last picture on that page that the police were walking in part of the area behind the houses on the north side of Valetta Street closer to the Salway end of Valetta. Directly behind my friends house on the north side of Valetta the woods were more dense, but as you moved further north (towards the back of Oakridge High School)it was much sparser such as the picture you see. The houses that you are looking at in that picture are some of the houses on Salway. These houses had next to no trees on their property so you see the back of some on the west side of Salway, but you can also see the houses on the east side of Salway. I can say this confidently because I still live in the house I grew up in when I went to school, and I drive by those very houses almost on a daily basis. If you took that picture with you in your car and drove down Salway today you would recognize the front of the houses on the east side of Salway.

I agree that the film and 'jars' were GF's domain along with a few other instances I've heard about but the rest is either someone else (lord knows there were enough weirdos around at that time) and - or built up tales. I do not think he was squeaky clean at all. I think it's like a lot of other psychopaths... he has no conscience and can make people who may have one do what he says. A strong personality who can control and manipulate others. Maybe he had something on some of the others in his group to keep them from talking. ... who knows. I do think he was and is one sick puppy

Thanks debbiec.  Here is a quote from a poster who knows Kevin.

Regarding the kids being placed with her parents, Her mother has had custody of the middle child since he was 9 months old and her father has had her oldest for quite some time, he did give her a chance with the oldest for about a year and a half, but when she was dealing with some issues the oldest went back to live with her dad in Aug of last year. The father of the youngest was given primary care by child services last year around the same time.

He goes by two names Kevin Rubletz and Kevin Cronshaw-Rubletz.  Same guy. It looks like he was holding down two different jobs.

Who did he live with?  His parents?

JB

From things I've read I think he lived with Kevin. I'm not sure if Kevin was living with his own parents at times with the child, or if he and the child lived in their own home. I also have the impression that the child is with someone in Kevin's family.

This was the most obvious and probable outcome. Too obvious was the problem for some. Once it was discovered that the ex was the last person to see her that night, the odds stacked up against him. Relationships are the most dangerous situations for women. They for good reason need to be investigated fully before going off in search of the anonymous bogeyman stranger abductor type. Those are around but are much rarer than the act of passion /non stranger /killer. Relationships gone bad evoke emotions that many aren't used to dealing with or controlling. Almost like some archaic primitive response mechanism that comes out unexpectedly in some people.

I think Police know these type aren't about to go off on a killing spree with more victims being added. They have time to watch and make a decent case without much fear of public endangerment in the near future. Jessica was found May 4 so 6 weeks would fit with DNA and forensics results providing the final pieces to lay charges.

50/50 custody... words are just words JB, consider the source and the rational for saying that....  There are never any real good outcomes to murder, its always a sad ending no matter what.

Perhaps the lawyer felt that he should have been charged with Manslaughter?

Quote
Foerster’s lawyer alleges the judge made mistakes in his jury instructions around intoxication and on the attempted sexual assault as an element of first-degree murder. Foerster was sentenced to 25 years in prison without parole.


Quote from JRN" thread
In some instances, a murder charge may be reduced to manslaughter if alcohol or other substances are found to have impaired the mental faculties of the perpetrator or if the homicide was committed in the heat of passion resulting from provocation, which is defined as a wrongful act or insult that would deprive an ordinary person of the power of self-control.

Why was the child living with Jessica's Parent,  if the father of this child supposedly had custody and was willing to share 50=50?

This is not making any sense to me.
