Updated News

Gail's orange cat Crispin has been found. Now there is only one cat missing. Visit the SPCA link above for more info about the missing cat.

I know many of you have been frustrated because you have not heard much about how Gailís criminal case is going. The detective said he was spending 80% of his time on the case. Even though we canít know the specifics of everything that is happening progress is being made. We all hope it leads to resolution.

Per Anita Edson from the SPCA of Texas "Both of Gail's cats are accounted for. Dallas Animal Services has Marlowe in protective custody. The property manager is going to try and take the flyers down...if anyone swings by there and sees any, go ahead and pull them down. Thanks!"

8/4/05 Police Investigation Update
They are out of suspects from their original short list, including the vagrant who hangs out near the apartment.
They are widening the search to try and talk to people she knew from Scarborough who might know if there was someone she just went on 1-2 dates with.
They have heard the name "George" (I'm not sure from where) and are looking for anyone who may have heard her speak of someone by that name.
