I read the article and was a little confused about the woman...in one sentence it refers to her as a correction officer then at the end calls her along with the male "inmates"....? So which is she?

My understanding is he left a piece of paper on his bunk and it had names and addresses on it. The Sheriffs department is getting in contact with everyone on that paper to see if he has been in touch with them. My neighbors were one of the people and talking about scaring the day lights out of ya. It did them. They havent seen this guy or spoke to him in over a year. So now we see the law quite a bit more than usual in our neighborhood now. But hey if it catches the guy we'll be thrilled to have the extra attention from the law.

Ok, I've checked out the story on the website. So "authorities are trying to local an Eastland County Jail Inmate......." And maintenance is spelled maintanance? "He is believed to be in the company...."

I figured that everyone else voiced their concerns so I'm voicing mine. So! The inmate escaped with the help of the female corrections officer? Wow! Very interesting. I do hope that they are caught soon and that she's prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

I have modified the story to bring it current...and this time I ran a dang spell check! I thought I did that this morning, but maybe I was still half asleep...dunno. The "in the company of..." was a direct quote on behalf of the Sheriff's Department. I guess I'd best be on my toes...the grammer police is out to get me!

Uh....no they are not!...I should have never said anything...she says everyone voiced their opinion im not sure if she was referring to your spelling or not...but anyways I didnt see anyone correct your spelling at all...I just commented on whether she was an inmate or a corrections officer is all... AR?...you do a great service to the community...keep up the good work and dont worry about it...stuff happens......lol

You can't imagine what they do in jail when the jailers turn their backs, and sometimes when they don't, such as would be the case here. :twisted:

Just a statement, Ladies and Gentlemen...Has it occured to any of you to stop and think what has happened here? Two human beings are missing, and one of those is my daughter. I do not know if she is alive tonight. I have heard nothing other than the snide and rude remarks of a bunch of people who assume that nothing bad will ever happen in their lives and it is ok to take potshots at someone they don't know.
So, while those of you who gloat over the disasters in other's lives, I will ask that the rest of you keep me posted of what is going in.

Hey Joe...I been praying for you and Nat and the boys. NO ONE knows all the facts yet, so NO one should be assuming anything. I hadn't spoken on this thread...because I didn't know what to say to some of the comments...and I say things wrong and make it worse sometimes...so I just been praying.

Joellen, I'm extremely sorry for what you're going thru at this time!

The news accounts that I have heard all mention that the prisoner had help from your missing daughter in his escape from jail. I fail to see how she could have been forced to help with the escape, since the man WAS in jail at the time. That's the reason for the comments. It seems to me that they are missing because they choose to be.

I'm sorry you interpreted our comments as "taking potshots" at an innocent person. NOBODY was gloating! I, for one, have had disasters in my own life and I really do feel for you! You'll be remembered in my prayers!

I don`t know who this man is so I can not tell what has happened. I do know that she always tired very hard to make something of herself. I will pray for you and yours, that she is found safe and it isn`t as it seems.
No one really knows anything at this point !!!

Good Morning-
Thank you for all the good things you have said...This is a bad situation for Natalie and her family...I do not know Douglas Thomas, and until this morning, did not know he went to school in Cisco...I am told he may be involved in some kind of White Supremacy Group...Natalie had worked for the Sheriff's Department for about four years...Again, I have no idea what happened last week, but I do know that she has not contacted her father or myself...She has four brothers and has not called them...Other family members are also without news...At this time, the Sheriff's Department, D-P-S, and Texas Rangers are hunting for her...She did speak with one of her brothers on the Monday the 5th...There was no hint that anything was wrong or about to change in her life...I spoke with her the Saturday before and she was excited about going to see her dad at the end of the month and we planned a visit from me to spend the night at her house...If anyone saw or spoke with her, or just knows something, the smallest detail, I am trying to put together a trail of her last days in Ranger and Eastland County in general...Also, if you know anything about Thomas, let me know...-Jo

I am Natalie's Grandmother, and if the Rabbit Hunter is so hot to get on the trail, let me suggest you go and be deputized and help with the search for my grandaughter.
I do not know if she is guilty or not guilty, but I will stand behind her 100%, no matter what.
I will be there for her , and she will not be alone, if she will just turn herself in, we can start to work on whatever we need to to get things right again...

Jo ... I pray she is found safe and sound.

I admire your daughter for deeper reasons that some might not understand. My husband has worked for our Sheriff's Office (not Eastland Co) for four years and it is a job that I would NEVER want to do ... I couldn't do it. The stress that goes with it I could never handle. Being the wife of someone who deals with criminals on a daily basis is as close as I want to get .... I know how smoothe talking those critters can be ... I know how desperate they are to get out ... I've heard my husband come home and tell me how he knew plans were being made to bash his brains in just so someone can get out!

I still stand by my thoughts that it wasn't love ... it's hard to fathom men like this (with his record) can possess and/or show love.

BigGunz
07-14-2004, 12:50 PM
well I understand where you are coming from and I just re-read the entire thread and I dont see where anyone really has made a snide or even rude comment...just stated their opinions is all...sometimes often yes with a Lol followed by the comment. And as far as taking potshots at someone we dont know...seems to me that some on here do know them both...I know I do or have knowledge of them. But thats neither here or there. I do however understand you fears and I pray that they catch them both ir at the very least you do hear from your daughter. The media and what little evidence they do let the public know tends to tell us she was instrumental in his escape....this is all that I know of the situation is what is reported. I pray that your daughter is ok and contact is made soon.

Okay Big....I understand what you are saying...but have to disagree a bit. This has crossed the line from opinions...to plain old gossip. See above....I spoke with someone who knows someone and they were told....... The thread went from this to...she did it for love...she is dumb and blind etc.

No one really knows what happened. Innocent until proven guilty. Who knows whether she had a knive or fork from lunch held ot her throat. Discuss the facts...and give your opinions fine.

I seem to recall that Gordons had problems due to current cases being discussed so heavily etc. We need to be careful that we do not cross the line between giving our opinions...and repeating what might be concidered slanderous gossip.

BigGunz
07-14-2004, 03:01 PM
saying someone did something for other reasons is an opinion...yet it stll can be gossip also...the statement used by another in saying only that they have dated in the past...now that could be gossip since that part has never been officially released to public knowledge the other part about the woman helping him escape is widely supported through media outlets...therefore thats not gossip as far as we know it!

I do not find either one of these to be rumor or in reality derogatory in nature.....Love is sometimes blind ...IF he had made promise of love which we dont know for a fact but thats still not a rumor just an opinion of ones. Deaf dumb and blind is just as much an opinion and could be read in many ways to that statement.....The way I see it the addition to the orginal quote about love being blind was furtherd to include the Opinion of someone that what has been reported that she did was DUMB....and being DEAF as toi not listening to her heart when knowing right from wrong!...all these are opinions in my eyes...thats the way I see it.

it is gossip no if ands or buts. The question becomes...is it slanderous? If this effects how a jury views a case down the road...yep...it was slander for sure.

Main Entry: 1gos·sip
Pronunciation: 'gä-s&p
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English gossib, from Old English godsibb, from god god + sibb kinsman, from sibb related -- more at SIB
1 a dialect British : GODPARENT b : COMPANION, CRONY c : a person who habitually reveals personal or sensational facts about others
2 a : rumor or report of an intimate nature

I just think this is dangerous teritory. I think that people should be carefull what they say.

You rightly interpreted my statement, BG. It was based upon the news accounts that the guy was CHARGED with "sexual assault" of a child. It was also based upon the news report that he was assisted in the escape by the lady in question. I know neither of them nor anything about them other than what I've read in the newspapers.

Miss Mally
07-14-2004, 04:28 PM
Not one news report that I have read has said anything about her helping him exscape because of LOVE. That was brought to the forum via rumor....what someone who knew someone told someone else.

Did she help him escape...looks that way...why did she? NO ONE knows. At this point it is all speculation. Could it have been fear...could that be the emotion involved? Did he threaten her or family members? No one knows.

Julie
07-14-2004, 04:46 PM
Could someone tell me what newspaper, which news media this has been reported on? I have missed all media coverage other than Microplex News. I have searched Abilene Reporter and several news stations on line and come up with nothing.

I think a lot of people just like to add anything they hear so that they can show they are "in the loop". Personally I prefer the wheels of justice to turn without benefit of hearsay and gossip. Ya never know when it might just influence someone, and that someone might be called up in the future for jury duty. I know just the other day there were several of us sitting around in a hospital waiting room discussing when we were supposed to hear reports from the operating room. Someone thought they had heard an official of the hospital tell them they would be informed about every 30 min of the patience status. However, it was actually another person sitting amongst us who had said they had been reported to every 30 min when a relative of theirs was being operated on. See how one person hears something, and doesn't actually remember where it came from but erroneously can consider it fact. Other people misinterpret what they hear, and others just flat out hear it wrong, sorta like that game we used to play as kids when we whispered something to the next person and it was passed around until it came out as something totally different than what it started out to be.

Since this is a local situation, in respect for the family of those involved in this situation, and to help out the law authorities, I would appreciate anyone who knows anything they think might be of benefit to this case (however small it is) to contact your local law enforcement agency and share it with them. Otherwise, it would be best to keep what is being said here to fact. Opinions of this case might be better discussed here at a much later date when no one would be affected by it.

Mally, I do not have to tell you where I heard anything. I would not have made something up to post. The boy's grandmother is the one who said he knew the girl and they had dated. I said nothing slanderous in this post, and I did not make anything up.

You are not the only one on this forum who is allowed to post information. Please refrain from accusing me of making up gossip.

For everyone else's information, my own feelings after finding out that these two knew each other, are that the guy probably sweet talked her into doing something that she will certainly regret. My prayers are also with her.

Miss Mally, no one said she is dumb and blind. Gearldean said LOVE is deaf, dumb and blind. Once again, you have taken something that someone said and twisted it around so that you can exercise your God-given right (or God-given DUTY) to criticize and correct others who have gone astray.
It seems that to incur your criticism, Gearldean and her family members don't have to say anything wrong. All they have to do is say something. Anything.

This whole thread has had its own ridiculous points. People are going to have their opinions of things and as I understand it, those opinions have been based on news reports. It's natural that people form their own conclusions based on information that they hear. If humans didn't do that, they'd be considered animals who don't have the ability to process information and make conclusions.

KTAB has not updated their website but KTXS has and it's my understanding that both individuals have been found in Tyler. According to KTXS, both are in custody and both are facing escape charges. Am I besmirching the woman's reputation? No. I'm stating only what I've seen on the KTXS website and it fits with the rest of the information I've seen concerning this story. Is it possible that she went unwillingly? I believe that that is a possibility. However, she's in custody, safe and sound, and it's now time for the courts to deal with it all. Keep in mind that she's facing escape charges. People make mistakes and if she did make a mistake, I pray that she and her family can overcome it. That's entirely possible provided the citizens of their community allow them to overcome it. They'll probably have an easier time of working this out in the courts then they will in the court of public opinion. People tend to be so nasty about this kind of thing and I only hope that a lot of humanity abounds concerning this family.

JMHO,

reality is that a court is nothing more than a "court of opinion"...whether we like it or not!

You've got a point but I was making a point there between the court of law and the court of public opinion. They should be two entirely different things. As I see it in Eastland county, the court of law is easier to deal with and far more fair than the court of public opinion.

Looks like they have apprehended the fugitives, so there isn't any further need for this thread, therefore I will lock it tonight and delete it tomorrow.
