The focus remains for missing child Trenton Duckett who is believed to have been abducted two weeks ago from his home. This past week though, there arose a question you might want to ask yourself.
Do you have a support group you could rely on should your child go missing? Melinda Duckett’s family suggests the media and/or her call in participation on the Nancy Grace show are partially to blame for her alleged suicide. Were those surrounding her aware of her emotional state?
Do Nancy Grace and a television show yield that much power you would commit suicide over some basic questions, especially with your child still missing?
If you knew the answers, why would the questions be of any concern? Was she forced to appear on the show? When others on the show suggested she needed an attorney, why didn’t she merely hang up, possibly to investigate retaining one? If she had been confined to an interrogation room and subject to intense grilling, it would probably be another story.
Wouldn’t most people know what they did the day before a tragic event less then two weeks old, barring any traumatic brain injury?
