42. This is all about political gain
No doubt about that at all, but I do feel sorry for her parents they lost their daughter 15 years ago and now they are going to lose her again...What makes matters worse is they are grabbing for straws...People are giving them false hope..No parent wants to lose a child let me tell you from experience it is the most painful experience one can go through. People are being so unfair to them to give them this false hope. And to do it for political gain is well I can not find the words to describe how terrible this is..
