Post by Brittany Jones (Whitnei Dubois’ sister) February 23, 2009
Ya know, sometimes when I’m really down and thinkin a lot about my sister, I come to sites like these to see how so many people are taking their time to help and show concern for my sister. It actually helps me, but you know it’s a sad thing to have to lose a loved one, am I right? Ok, you know what’s even worse? Havin to “google” her name to find someone else who actually cares?
The impact that all of this has had on my life, you all will never know. I have changed as a person, probably for the worse, I have been broken down and broken down others around me, and I have lost myself as a person.
You see, she was not only my sister but my lifelong best friend. I envied her and loved her and she was my other half. She was a beautiful woman who was called to heaven too soon. I dont care what ANYONE may ever think of her, because she was loved dearly and now missed even more!
I never understood what people meant when I’d hear them say on tv “i need closure”, but boy I sure understand the meaning now. We have run into dead end after dead end and there is never much light shed for us (the victims’ families). I have fought for my sister endlessly, as most of you may know, through newspaper, media, internet, etc. AMW was a breath of fresh air for me. I couldn’t have been happier. Then to hear them say the sheriff refused was a slap in the face! That was not his decision to make, it was ours the families, speaking on behalf of our dead loved ones!!!! Dead end after dead end but i wasn’t surprised!
You see, for those of you who are aware, help from them comes very few and far between! Contact from them didn’t exist after my sister was found. There wasn’t much to tell I guess? WRONG!!!! They told us about things that are denied now. They had evidence that they are “unaware” of now. It’s passed through so many hands before it’s gotten to where it is now that everything has been tampered with. How can we be so sure that this newly founded task force has seen EVERY single piece of evidence from 7 murder cases from the last 3 years? Trust me, it hasn’t!!
I am absolutely disgusted on how my sister has been described by LE and the sheriff. Let’s not start throwing descriptions out there, OINK! OINK! My sister is described as having lived a high risk lifestyle and trading sex for drugs…well guess what? No evidence or statements said that my sister did!!!
My sister had recently developed a drug problem and went down the wrong path with an old boyfriend. Before, she was just like you and I, Mr. Edwards. It could happen to any one of your kids and you would have to face this also. It doesn’t just happen to us on “this side of the tracks”. Drugs and problems have no division in any town. It’s a plague that has no cure!
I want to thank all of you for dedicating your time to helping out here! You guys will never know how much you have helped me.
Scaredandconfused, you were mainly the reason I first decided to post. I was so desperate that I thought posting on here would cause you to try to contact me out of desperation for your help, but unusually, you did not try to. I would think that I was important enough? If you are truly around to help then I would have no choice but to thank you, but you have to decide whether you need a blog to release your feelings or a number to call to report what you feel so strongly about. If it’s for attention, please!!! These 7 women have enough trouble getting the attention they deserve, don’t try to steal the show!!!!
A special thank you to Mr. Kirk Menard, because of him I believe that one day we will find out what happened thanks to him, his team, and the victims’ families. We WILL DO THIS! Kirk and his team have worked endlessly and have made us very comfortable. There are people on my side I have now discovered!
To those of you eavesdropping on conversations, reading our blogs, blocking around our homes, and whatever other illegal activities, (and I do stress ILLEGAL) I DONT GIVE A DAMN AND I NEVER DID! YOU SEE, US “LOWER CLASS PEOPLE ON THIS SIDE OF TOWN” DON’T KNOW HOW TO SPEAK SO WELL B/C WE DIDNT GRADUATE OR GO TO COLLEGE, SO WE JUST SAY WHATEVER THE HELL WE FEEL AND WE HAVE NO PROBLEM DOING SO!!!!!!!!!!
