DUMPSTER MURDER: WHEN DOING RIGHT IS THE LOVING THING TO DO


Autumn Pasquale

My stomach cramped as I heard about the abduction of 12-year-old Autumn Pasquale.  (Read the story here).  Just this week, she was riding her bike when she vanished and her body was found in a dumpster.  Then I had the same reaction when I heard that the assailants were two teenage boys, 15 and 17.  But what struck me was who turned them in!  Their mom!

She found a Facebook posting on one of the boys’ page and notified officials.

Would you be able to do that?  Would you be able to turn in your own children?  This mom knew the ramifications.  She knew what a life-changing event this would be for all of them.   She easily could have kept quiet, hoping no one would find out.  Instead, this mom loved her sons enough to turn them in.

Maybe that last sentence is the key.  Maybe doing the right thing, even when it’s hard, is the loving thing to do.

Details are still unfolding in the case.  Interviews are revealing the story and investigators and piecing together the evidence.  However, the bigger lessons learned are from a mom who is, at this moment, crying two times – once for her sons and once for a little girl on a bike, abducted and killed by her own flesh and blood.

Now I can sense how God feels about what He did for us.  (read more)

Peace!

    I think that mother was the best mother there can be. My daughter was murdered, and the mothers of those boys lied for each and every one of them. 20 years later I am still waiting for justice for my daughter Tammy. Please pray that someone will come forward and tell the truth as to what happened that Homecoming night 1992. If you wish to go to unbated .com the story and a picture of my daughter is there.
