    I agree that the cops/911 bungled the initial report about Brian being seen hitting her but I believe them separating them was the right thing to do.  That gave Gabby the opportunity to get away if that was what she wanted.  Very sad.

    Why wouldn't you help your son?  I can see that.
    if he murdered someone in cold blood? no.

    Just the idea of them bringing his car back to their house is strange. Why bring it back unless you knew he wasn't going to be retrieving it.

    We don't know what the kid told his parents at this point.  If he told them that he just abandoned her and they believe him then him not talking to the police is a wise legal strategy but horrible optics.

    If my son told me that he killed his fiance I would take him directly to the police with an attorney.

  • Holy shit, academic types study this shit. Seems Joy wasn't too far off the mark. Sorry, not sorry, that makes some uncomfortable. Quick, name the last Black, gone missing women that you can recall in the new media. Hell, don't even have to remember her name, just a general outline of the circumstances. Everyone knows race has nothing to do with anything, anything at all (footnotes left out as they create a formatting nightmare).

    B. Defining Missing White Woman Syndrome Missing

     White Woman Syndrome20 refers to the overabundance of coverage that mainstream media outlets dedicate to missing persons cases of White women and its correlating lack of coverage of missing people of color.21 The term “Missing White Woman Syndrome,” also alternatively known as “Missing White Girl Syndrome,”22 was first coined by Gwen Ifill, a PBS news anchor.23 Missing White Woman Syndrome also refers to the media’s tunnel-vision-like focus on “young, white, attractive . . . rich females.”24 Some have characterized the phenomenon as “round-the-clock coverage of disappeared young females who qualify as ‘damsels in distress’ by race, class, and other relevant social variables.”25 Others have called this same idea “damsel in distress syndrome.”26 Some researchers have considered the occurrence of racial bias in news media to be a product of profitdriven business models and news media organizations attempts to gain the attention of “the majority audience group[s].”27

    Missing White Woman Syndrome has been well-documented by mainstream media’s failure to represent and depict missing persons cases in the same proportion that they appear across races.28 In a 2010 study, Seong-Jae Min and John C. Feaster found that while minorities were disproportionately represented in news coverage, African American missing children in particular “were significantly underrepresented when compared to national statistics.”29 The pair of researchers compared 19.5%, the percentage of African-American missing children cases covered in news media, with 33.2%, the actual percentage of reported incidents from the FBI’s data.30 The concluded that racial disparity is prevalent in media because “AfricanAmerican missing children cases are underrepresented in national television news compared to their actual rates of incidence.”31 In 2015, Clara Simmons and Joshua Woods replicated Min and Feaster’s study and found that although African-American missing children amounted to a shockingly low 7% of media references, they accounted for 35% of the National Crime Information Center’s cases.32

    A mid-2000 study conducted by Scripps Howard News Service found that although White children accounted for only 53% of the 37,665 cases reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and 54% of cases in a study conducted by the U.S. Justice Department, they were covered in 67% of The Associated Press’ (AP) missing children news coverage, and 76% of CNN’s news coverage.33 Conversely, Black children accounted for 23% of missing children cases reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and 19% of the cases studied by the U.S. Justice Department, but were only represented in 17% of AP’s stories and 13% of CNN’s stories.34 The study chose to focus on AP because it “is the largest producer of print news in the United States,” and CNN because “it was the largest provider of national television reporting” during the years of the study.35 Although it focused on only two of the largest national reporting services, experts suggest that the results of “this study are indicative of reporting practices throughout the nation’s news media.”36

    I think it's relevant here.  I can't say I totally believe it is "white girl" related but I understand the perception.

    B. Defining Missing White Woman Syndrome Missing

     White Woman Syndrome20 refers to the overabundance of coverage that mainstream media outlets dedicate to missing persons cases of White women and its correlating lack of coverage of missing people of color.21 The term “Missing White Woman Syndrome,” also alternatively known as “Missing White Girl Syndrome,”22 was first coined by Gwen Ifill, a PBS news anchor.23 Missing White Woman Syndrome also refers to the media’s tunnel-vision-like focus on “young, white, attractive . . . rich females.”24 Some have characterized the phenomenon as “round-the-clock coverage of disappeared young females who qualify as ‘damsels in distress’ by race, class, and other relevant social variables.”25 Others have called this same idea “damsel in distress syndrome.”26 Some researchers have considered the occurrence of racial bias in news media to be a product of profitdriven business models and news media organizations attempts to gain the attention of “the majority audience group[s].”27

    Missing White Woman Syndrome has been well-documented by mainstream media’s failure to represent and depict missing persons cases in the same proportion that they appear across races.28 In a 2010 study, Seong-Jae Min and John C. Feaster found that while minorities were disproportionately represented in news coverage, African American missing children in particular “were significantly underrepresented when compared to national statistics.”29 The pair of researchers compared 19.5%, the percentage of African-American missing children cases covered in news media, with 33.2%, the actual percentage of reported incidents from the FBI’s data.30 The concluded that racial disparity is prevalent in media because “AfricanAmerican missing children cases are underrepresented in national television news compared to their actual rates of incidence.”31 In 2015, Clara Simmons and Joshua Woods replicated Min and Feaster’s study and found that although African-American missing children amounted to a shockingly low 7% of media references, they accounted for 35% of the National Crime Information Center’s cases.32

    A mid-2000 study conducted by Scripps Howard News Service found that although White children accounted for only 53% of the 37,665 cases reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and 54% of cases in a study conducted by the U.S. Justice Department, they were covered in 67% of The Associated Press’ (AP) missing children news coverage, and 76% of CNN’s news coverage.33 Conversely, Black children accounted for 23% of missing children cases reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and 19% of the cases studied by the U.S. Justice Department, but were only represented in 17% of AP’s stories and 13% of CNN’s stories.34 The study chose to focus on AP because it “is the largest producer of print news in the United States,” and CNN because “it was the largest provider of national television reporting” during the years of the study.35 Although it focused on only two of the largest national reporting services, experts suggest that the results of “this study are indicative of reporting practices throughout the nation’s news media.”36

    Can we keep this out of this thread?  Holy shit. The girl is dead. Go discuss race in one of the other 68 threads.

    I've seen a few other missing persons posts along the lines of "why aren't we talking about this person" but the circumstances were different and not just race.  

    The known suspect is the key to a big story.

    We have a lot of special needs teens that go missing that get broadcasted.

    Growing up down that way, my friends and I would all aim for a live-off-the-woods week; we never lasted that long, though. There’s only so much saw palmetto a person can eat.

    Jon Benet Ramsey Part II?

    How many people every day die...and we fixate as a country (I know it was shared this is somehow global news) on a single case.

    Not saying it is not sad, but the coverage is also sad.  16,000+ people were murdered in the US in 2019.
