I read the paper as Melinda hands it back to me it says “I didn’t call the cops to break up the party, I called them because some guy raped me. Under the trees.I didn’t know what to do. I was stupid and drunk and didn’t know what was happening and he raped me. When the police came, everyone was screaming, and I was too scared, so I cut through some backyards and walked home.” I hate myself right now I ditched our friendship because she broke up the party and almost got me arrested. I didn’t even listen to what her side was. I swore that I’d never be her friend again when I should’ve. No wonder why she’s changed so much. The conversation continues a little longer, but then it comes to me she never reported it because she was so scared. Someone …show more content…
Part of me wants to believe her, but I can’t. I won’t. Because believing her means I’d lose the one I adore, the one I love when I’m not totally positive if its true or not. So I choose not to believe her even though I want to. I look at the stall door and see a couple of people agreeing with the start of the conversation to stay away from Andy Evans. Yet still I choose not to believe them. I get myself together redo my mascara and walk out the door. Back to hating Melinda Sordino for “lying to me” about my true love, Andy Evans.

I twirl in my rosy pink dress like a goof when I hear the doorbell ring. “Mom can you get that.” I shout from behind my bedroom door. I hear my mom say, “Oh my you look so handsome.” “Thank you” he says probably with his flashy kind …show more content…

Outside the town of Shelby Township, Indiana was a woman’s body lying in the woods of a wildlife refuge. The body was stumbled across by a wildlife refuge worker on September 6, 2010. It was covered in dirt and leaves when found on site. The victim was covered with 3rd degree burns leaving very little room to determine the ethnicity. The hands and feet were shown to be missing and the tibia, pelvis, skull, humerus, and ribs were retrieved. The hands and feet were never found but a knife was left with no blood or fingerprints left on the knife. This was believed to be a murder case considering the hands and feet were chopped off in an unnatural way. The victim was found to be wearing a floral dress and a red clutch with no identification

She was already dressed, with her hair done and her casual day outfit all put together.
