The OC Register article says Donna took the drugs intentionally, and she went to the party planning to use drugs. Again, smart people do stupid things sometimes. When I was younger, I had a sort of mental list of things I should do to prove I was grown-up. Things like get a driver’s license, have sex, get a job and so on. Using drugs was one of those things. I indulged a little in college; many people do. Thank goodness I never got in over my head, and thank goodness I outgrew that silliness quickly (though it took me longer to outgrow the binge drinking). I had no better sense than Donna, only better luck.
The police are looking for the body, but I don’t think they have a prayer. The Pacific Ocean doesn’t like to give up its dead, and it’s been almost two years. That’s IF Burgess was telling the truth about where he put it.
He faces only seven to eight years in prison if convicted. That’s disgusting.
