    Girl in question appears to be either twelve or thirteen years old, and the father of her child is *not* her 17 year old BF but the step-father aged forty-four.

    Good lord. I can understand, if you don't have a birth certificate for the child, maybe not remembering her exact birthdate. But to be off by 3-4 YEARS? "Uh, I dunno, I think she's around 9." To what benefit would the parents lie about the child's age, making her YOUNGER?

    Yup. Even with awareness, it seems as if its still a pushback to sweep it underneath the rug...

    They are looking for the guy in Mexico...it's going to be really unfortunate if vigilantes catch up with him..

    Eh, personally I don't see a problem with vigilante justice for a d-bag who got a child pregnant...
