Victory in Thompson case

As others have noted, Aaron Thompson was convicted of 31 counts, including child abuse resulting in death in the case of his daughter Aarone, who was reported missing in 2005 but is believed to have been killed about two years before. Aaron was acquitted of 24 counts, mostly related to the alleged abuse of the seven other children in his household, but this is definitely a victory for the prosecution. He faces 48 years in prison.

The jury was out deliberating for over a week. It looks like they took their job seriously and I’m glad of it.

Now, if only Aaron would ‘fess up and tell us where the body is. But why should he do that, what does he have to gain? And why should a psychopath do something for nothing?
