    Does anybody else think this story stinks to high heaven?

    If the woman gained entry to the house by asking to use the phone, then why didn't the mother just use the phone after "passing out" and coming to? After having her throat cut, mind you.

    I hope they find the baby, but I'm so jaded I find the whole story a little hard to swallow.

    Ummmm have you ever heard of SHOCK!!!! Its that funny thing that happens to people when something traumatic occurs. The story doesnt say if the intruder ripped the phone out or if it was damaged in some way or could she speak very well with a slit throat. I find it hard to believe that anyone would intentionaly stab themselves and slit their own throat just to hide something. but hey I'm not even close to being that jaded.:poke:

    I confess. First thing I thought of upon hearing this was Susan Smith.

    Me, too.

    Sorry, but nobody who really has had their throat slit can walk two houses away to call the cops.

    We'll see.
