Sad end to the matter,. except it is not the end until it's discovered how she managed to get 4 miles from home, in the middle of one of the worst winters on record, without any coat, or shoes.


Very mysterious and begs the questions to be answered.

As father of four girls, I am really devastated that this girl, a nice looking one at that, should have come to such an end.

Answers please Heddlu Gwent.
