well, let’s examine, shall we?

This is a high profile case. The police have been extremely tight-lipped about this whole thing. The police should know that people are going to talk.

There’s no better rumor control than the truth. If the cops want to control rumors, then they should release more details.

In other words, if there’s rumors circulating, then it’s more the fault of the secretive police than it is anyone else.

I’m gonna give my opinion…the father is involved somehow, someway. I was willing to give the family the benefit of the doubt before I heard the father’s 911 call. His demeanor and his words were all calm and routine. Hell, he sounded as if he was calling for pizza, not reporting his own child missing. I think most parents would be hysterical and have a difficult time maintaining any sort of composure if they didn’t know where their child was. Not Isa’s father though…he didn’t seem disturbed in the least.

@Bret Linden

TPD has released more than 500 pages of investigative reports in the case, which we have posted in their entirety.

@Dylan Smith

Yeah, but far from detailed. Much redacted, and feet were dragged in releasing those reports, yes? Hell, it took Villasenor almost a month to actually publicly confirm this an abduction.

If TPD wants to leave us with more questions than answers about this high-profile case then they’re going to have to accept rumors as one of the consequences of that decision. I’m not defending the gossip-mongers, but TPD complaining about them is akin to someone building a house at the end of an airport runway and then complaining about the noise.

I agree, the public has been left to conjure up it’s own story due to a severe lack of detail.  Reliable detail.  I feel this just goes to show how little TPD actually knows about the case.  I could be wrong.  But it seems as if we are all grasping at straws at this point.  I hope this innocent child is still alive and well.

Sorry, we missed your input...

User Guidelines

Please be respectful and relevant. Thought-provoking. Or at least funny.

We want comments to advance the discussion and we need your help. Debate, disagree, yell (digitally) or laugh, but do it with respect.

We won't censor your comments if we don't agree with you; we want viewpoints from across the political spectrum. We're dedicated to sparking an open, active discussion. We believe people with differing opinions can spark debate and effect change.

Comments are open to registered users of TucsonSentinel.com.

Keep in mind:

  • A conversation involves sharing and respect. Support your viewpoint with facts, not attacks.
  • Ask questions. Search out answers.
  • Remember that being part of a community requires tolerance for differing views.
  • We can't ensure that all comments are based in truth. The only comments we endorse are those we write ourselves.

TucsonSentinel.com does not allow:

  • Hate speech. Blatantly racist, sexist or homophobic slurs or calls for violence against a particular type of person, etc. will be removed.
  • Obscenity & excessive cursing. Sometimes a well-placed curse word - if you're creative enough to get it past our auto-censor - can express your point in just the right way. But we say '%*$& no' to cursing for cursing's sake. And lose the explicit sexually-descriptive language. It doesn't contribute to the debate and there are plenty of other places on the Internet to find it.
  • Flaming. During a heated discussion, unkind words may be spoken. We can live with a certain amount of rudeness in the name of provocative conversation, but a pattern of personal attacks (name-calling, mocking, or baiting) is not acceptable nor are threatening or harassing comments. Show some respect, please.
  • Explicit political endorsements. As a nonprofit we can't allow electioneering. Analysis and explanation of political issues and candidates are encouraged, but specific calls to vote for or against a measure or politician should be done elsewhere.
  • Spam. Solicitation of products or services isn't allowed; contact us about advertising, we'd love to talk to you. Links to off-topic sites may be deleted.
  • Copyright or IP infringement. Lengthy quotes and violations of 'Fair Use' aren't allowed. Anything you post should be your own work.
  • Overposting. Don't bore people and waste electrons with identical comments on multiple stories or repetitive comments that don't advance a conversation.
  • Trolling, sockpuppetry, and other abusive behavior. Please don't feed the trolls and don't pretend to be someone you're not.
  • Gossip. Don't bring up others who can't defend themselves. We don't give out personal information; you shouldn't either.

Comments that violate these guidelines may be removed. We reserve the right to make up the rules as we go along.

Flagging

Commentors are solely responsible for the opinions they express and the accuracy of the information they provide. Users who violate these standards may lose their privileges on TucsonSentinel.com.

Sentinel editors can't read every comment. Trolls, spammers and other troublemakers can slide under the bridge. We rely on you to help maintain a healthy conversation - more than likely, you're reading these comments before the editors.

What if you see something inappropriate? Use the 'Flag' button to send it to a moderation queue. Help us out and tell us why you're reporting it; please don't report someone just because you disagree with them. Boy who cried wolf and all that. We'll take appropriate action on violations.

We will not edit comments to alter their meaning or censor comments because of political content.

We will not remove comments solely because they are heartless, cruel, coarse, foolish or just plain wrong. Your disapproval can maintain a decent signal to noise ratio. Ultimately, however, self-policing is the best method.

Bottom line, don't be a jerk.
