Her vehicle was found abandoned on U.S. 65 near the new Dumas hospital. The gas tank was empty, the doors were locked and the emergency flashers were turned on. The vehicle revealed no evidence of foul play, according to police.

Smith said 30 or 40 law enforcement officers and volunteers searched the farmland, breaks, and a bayou between Pickens and Lincoln County on Tuesday. More volunteers and law enforcement officers joined the search Wednesday when they combed the cotton and bean fields north and east of Dumas.

Two investigators and an FBI agent spent the day canvassing businesses along U.S. 65, from Pickens to Gould, and a volunteer from Dumas distributed flyers in Pine Bluff and Lake Village, and all the towns between, Smith said.

Where Is Casey Crowder? Sheriff Don Smith of the Desha County Sheriff’s Department, Casey Crowder’s mother Melinda and her aunt Cindy Bennett go “One The Record”.

VAN SUSTEREN: Melinda, any idea is there — would your daughter ever take off? It doesn’t sound like a case where she’d take off but any idea would she take off?

CROWDER: No, she would not. She was very close to all of her family and friends and there was no reason at all for her to run off. That’s just not an option. She didn’t have any reason to. She had just tried out for the school’s softball team the Saturday before. All of her clothes were in her room.

She had just called me and, you know, I told her that if — you know, I asked her if she wanted me to come and pick her up and she said, “No, mom, don’t worry about it. I’ll call so and so and get him to get them to bring me some gas and it will be all right” you know. And I said, “OK, are you sure?” And she said, “Yes.” And I said, “Well call me back if you need me” and then I didn’t hear from her anymore.

Search Continues for Trenton Duckett, Local Sex Offenders Questioned

The search continues for 2 year old Trenton Duckett who has been missing since Sunday Trenton Duckett 2night. Police authorities in Leesburg, FL are questioning sex offenders and neighbors in an effort to find a missing boy.

On Wednesday, investigators said they were questioning people in the boy’s neighborhood and registered sex offenders in the area.

“In the 21 years I’ve been here, we have never been looking at anything like a potential abduction-type case where it may be a stranger,” Leesburg police Capt. Steve Rockefeller said. “We have had parent involvement, parent interference and other domestic-type situations. Obviously we are looking at all angles in this case, and we just want to get Trenton home.”

The case certainly has its share of oddities. In one of the more strange connections, Trenton’s grandfather, James Duckett, is awaiting lethal injection on Florida’s death row for the rape and murder of an 11 year old girl


Nearly 20 years ago, the Mascotte police officer was convicted of raping and murdering an 11-year-old girl.

Prosecutors said they found the girl’s fingerprints on the hood of Duckett’s patrol car and that his tire tracks were near the lake where the girl was drowned.

Duckett has maintained his innocence.

(Local 6)

Trenton Duckett is described as follows: (Have you seen this boy?)Trenton Duckett

  • Asian-Caucasian
  • 2 1/2 to 3 feet tall
  • weighing 30 to 40 pounds
  • brown low-cut hair
  • He was last seen wearing a blue-and-green striped shirt (or no shirt) with blue denim shorts and no shoes.

Australia: Accused Rapist Arthur Fairwell Assaults 13 year old … thought He was Ozzy Osborne

From out of Australia comes a new and bizarre form of rape defense in the case of 39 year old Arthur Fairwell. Arthur Fairwell pleaded guilty to six charges to the drugging and sexual assault of a 13 year old girl and the drugging of her mother. Wait until you hear Fairwell’s and even his lawyers defense. You just can’t make this nonsense up, or can you? They seemed to have.

A man drugged and sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl because he believed he was rock star Ozzy Osbourne and had to follow in his footsteps, a Sydney court was told today.

Arthur Fairwell, 39, is facing a sentencing hearing in the NSW District Court, where he has pleaded guilty to six charges over the assault of the girl and the drugging of her and her mother.

Fairwell met the girl’s mother through a telephone dating service in May 2004.

(Daily Telegraph)

He said Fairwell thought he was heavy metal singer Ozzy Osbourne and felt compelled to have sex with a 13-year-old girl because that is what Ozzy once did.

(Yahoo News)

The “Rock star” defense is what Fairwell’s attorney dreamed up. Fairwell seems to have another story as to why he drugged and raped a 13 year old girl.

A Sydney man who drugged a woman and raped her teenage daughter has claimed in court he is being persecuted because he was Middle Eastern.

It’s because I’m from the Middle East,” Fairwell shouted.

“Ever since 9/11.
“All the Aussies get let off – you have no idea.”

Fairwell admitted to drugging a woman he met through a telephone dating service, then drugging and sexually assaulting her 13 year-old daughter at their south-west Sydney home two years ago.
So what is it, the rock star “I am Ozzy Osbourne defense” or I am the persecuted Middle Easterner with post 9–11 wrongful bias placed on me? One defense more sick than the other in justifying and explaining the rape of a 13 year old girl. Fairwell will be sentenced Thursday.
