  1. I’m not trying to be funny, and I don’t know the workings of a criminal mind, but why would he kidnap this woman just to throw her into a river? Why wouldn’t he just shoot her like he did the others? Who is this woman really? I guess I will have to go to another source for more details, because there are way too few here.

  2. Not to be funny, but this POS-Gilliam was one COLD HEARTED SOB.
    Obviously, God had a different plan for the woman he threw into the frigid river water.
    Hopefully, she will SURVIVE and LIVE TO TELL regarding what she witnessed this
    turd doing.

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!
