Violent crime against women and children-it just never ends.
Be careful out there, wherever you are...

I read this last night. Likely a planned abduction. Human predators like this tend to plan by learning a potential victim's patterns like where they work, When they work, When they come home etc. Hope she gets returned safely.

Thousands of people go missing in the U.S. alone-Many are self-imposed with people going away somewhere to start over, escape current problems etc however about 10 percent never return for various reasons, Either crime related or otherwise.

Very scary. This doesn't look good at all. It is a pity there wasn't a surveillance camera. At least there would have been an image of the perp. Also if there was a surveillance camera it might possibly have deterred the man responsible although it hasn't in a few previous cases.

This is similar to Samantha Koenig over a year ago.

This sort of crime is very rare in the country I live in. In fact I've never heard of people being abducted from stores / gas stations. I hope it stays that way.

These young women working on their own at night seem like lambs to the slaughter. Something more should be done to protect them.

I would never allow my wife or any woman I cared about to work late shift in a gas station by themselves.

Maybe not for every woman but with a lot of training and practice I like this.

Ah, a Kel-Tec PF9 9mm. Good gun when you can get a decent one. Luckily mine's good.

I'm by no means saying that she deserved to be abducted, but come on, certain jobs, women should just NOT do & working at gas stations is one of them because you're all alone in a tiny little building without much protection against a burglar or worse. Also, any other job that includes closing up all by oneself is not good for a woman. To me, that's just common sense.

I agee. Whoever owned that gas station should never expected a woman to close up alone - it is even dangerous for a lone man - either way - man or woman - they should have a gun on them at all times

Small amounts of blood found outside the gas station belonged to her

They think she may have known her abductor.

That can make it even more dangerous. What they need is a second person in a different part of the store, each with constant access to a silent alarm button and a camera on the whole place at all times.
