    I really hope that the guy arrested is actually the guilty party. That so called man is scum, and needs to have the harshest penalty that wyoming can give to an indavidual. I cant believe that people like that can actually live with themselves. I personally think that child molesters should have the same sentancing as serial killers get. Life in prison with no possability of parole, and perhaps even the death penalty. I am glad that the girl that was abducted, and her family can have some peace of mind in knowing that he wont be able to do that to any one else.

    Hopeful this might have a connection with the Jessica. While Cody is a wonderful town, it is not necessarily safe. No place really is, parents and guardians please check our Wyoming State registered offenders website. You may be very surprised, we do have offenders in our community. Hope he had a cell phone. The records should show the the towers where he was closest to and if he was in the Denver area it should be easy to track from the cell records.

    I hope they will find sufficient evidence to lock him up!

    I'm thankful they have caught him. I do not believe child offenders can ever be successfully treated and that it is time our country move away from so-called humanitarian treatment or allowing these people to go unpunished or not punished enough. The most difficult thing I've dealt with in my career has been child assault. These little children's lives are terribly intruded upon, resulting in damage to their basic trust of others and their sense of self.

    I'm happy to hear the abductor was caught . A child abuser is the lowest life form there is in my opinion . I dont get the Cody news so my concern is if the little girl is ok ? A million kudos for catching this man so fast and before he could harm other innocent children !
