Still no word from Det. Austin…

He said he’d call me this week with more news, but it’s Saturday and he never called. The man has always been good about keeping me informed and I don’t believe he forgot to call or anything like that. From my experiences with him, I think he just has no news to give yet. All the same, I may succumb to temptation and drop him a line on Monday. Only to be told, I’m sure, that the prosecutor hasn’t made up his/her mind yet or hasn’t gotten back to him.

When all of this is over I intend to send Austin a thank-you card or something. I know rape victims sometimes have a lot of trouble with the police. I have looked at message boards and a lot of them have said they felt ignored, the police weren’t returning their calls, weren’t taking them seriously, etc. I never felt that way about Austin, and he has always been sensitive even when he had to ask embarrassing questions. I think I’m lucky to have landed him.

Whilst napping today I dreamed that Austin called me and told me Rollo had been murdered in jail. He said the police themselves had beaten him to death. In the dream I felt ambivalent about this: glad he was out of the picture for good, but upset because he would just be dead and not suffering through a decades-long prison term.

    My advice is not to push him. He probably has several different cases going on at once and doesn’t want to release any information until it is confirmed and is allowed to do so without contaminating the case before it goes to trial.

    I like the idea of sending a thank you note. Cops almost never get those and they remember when they do get them. It helps to get on their good side. That alone might guilt him into giving you a call.

    I was thinking about this whole thing the other day and marveling at how brave you are, Meaghan. I can’t imagine what you have been through. I’m not very articulate because I haven’t finished my morning coffee, but just wanted to let you know I (random internet person) was thinking about you. 🙂

    I do not scare easy at all,BUT……….. This person would creep me out.I just found all of these blog’s,so,I was wondering if this was ever resolved? I do not know if she is really crazy crazy?It sounded like someone who is very angry and forgets or does not care that you do not know them personally enough to understand what they were meaning.By this I mean that if someone knew this person they would probably understand every thing which was written during her rant.I think it was more of a rant than being a real schizo.I know this is old but like I stated before intriguing.
