Den*ise Amber L*ee Denise was a 21-year-old, loving mother of two boys, Noah (2years) and Adam (6 months). She also was the beloved wife of Nathan, who worked three jobs so that Denise could stay home and raise their children. On the day Denise was abducted from the Lees' rented home in North Port, she had just put the boys down for naps. Somehow, the intruder gained entry and control of Denise, who most likely saved her children's lives by cooperating with this monster, locking a door that never latched properly and shutting the windows. Denise's father, Detective Rick G0ff, was able to call on all area state, county and municipal law-enforcement agencies to search for Denise and her captor immediately following her abduction. This was one of the most massive, cooperative search efforts that this area ever experienced. In the hours that ensued, Denise fought mightily for her life against a man much larger than she. In her battle, she was able to use the captor's cell phone to call 911, and act she thought would save her life. She was not the only one to call 911 that day regarding this crime. There were at least four other calls, one from her distraught husband and three from eyewitnesses. One witness gave the local sheriff's department an exact location of the crime happening in the car behind her. She stayed on the phone for more than nine minutes, identifying cross streets as she continued driving. Because of the chaos and a "shift change" in the call center during this time, the call did not result in a dispatch of officers in the area. In fact, as many as four patrol cars were within a mile of the car in which Denise was fighting for her life. The next few days were difficult ones. The assailant was arrested, and hundreds of law enforcement personnel and volunteers searched for Denise. On the morning of January 19, 2008, her body was found naked in a well-hidden grave, dead from a gunshot wound. Denise was cunning, and she left behind many clues. Most important was her 911 call, during which she duped her captor into believing that she was talking to him rather than a 911 operator. She pulled out some of her own hair and left it in the car so that investigators would have DNA evidence. She also hid a ring, a unique an d sentimental keepsake that her husband could easily identify. It is in memory of Denise and the tragedy that befell someone so undeserving that this Foundation is formed. Had 911 operators responded properly and quickly to these calls, Denise's life could have been saved.
The jury took 2 1/2 hours to come back with a guilty verdict on all charges and tomorrow morning begins the next penalty phase to decide life or death for this sonofab*&%# that didn't give a second thought to rather this young Mom lived or died. I will be watching courttv at 9:00 when the family is able to give there impact statements. I've always been able to see both sides of the death penalty debate, but I am very happy that this asshole lives in a state where he will most likely be handed the verdict of death by needle, though I believe he is getting off way to easy.

On the Good Note of Life, I had to pass along to the world that my neighbor received confirmation that her daughter Jaylee passed the medical exam and they will be allowed to travel to bring her home! (Probably next week!) They have been knee deep in the ridiculous rules of the CDC and TB. If you haven't signed the petition, please do: http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/build-families-not-barriers.html
Jaylee could have been home 6 months sooner had this backwards rule been tweeked to fit the circumstances.
