Greta had Jessica's father on this evening. She asked him a question about Jessica and he answered in about 3 or 4 words, and then went off on some prepared statement that had nothing whatsoever to do with what she asked. Odd and evasive, I thought. No tears this evening, either. The girl with him, Jessica's cousin, I think, didn't seem too upset over the whole thing.
Mark Fuhrman was on with Greta and he is the first to come out and say something is very wrong with this situation, family wise. He pointed out something else that is weird, in addition to the dog's silence, and that's the stuffed animal she won at the fair recently; it was gone. I never paid much attention to that, but once you think about it, it doesn't make much sense that she would take it with her if she was abducted by a stranger.
The immediate family situation is peculiar, in that the father is living with his parents with his daughter; he must be around 35ish. There are many little details we are not aware of, but one detail is clear: something is wrong in this family.
RECAP: If a stranger came into the house and grabbed Jessica, she would've screamed, alerting the dog, thus waking the grandparents. She wouldn't have stopped in that situation to get her stuffed animal. If the stranger somehow got in and subdued Jessica, she still wouldn't have been able to take her stuffed animal, and the dog would've been alerted by hearing or smell.
If someone known to her got her to leave, then getting her stuffed animal makes sense, and the dog not barking makes sense as well.
