    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS.

Psycho For Love: William Douglas killed Robin Nadine Benedict and disposed of her body in a landfill (which has never been found)

Robin Benedict
Robin Nadine Benedict

This is a case that has stuck with me since I read the book, “Missing Beauty”, by Theresa Carpenter. I do not care what Robin had done for a living for a while. She was still a human being with a family and friends. She did NOT deserve what happened to her. She deserved justice, but did not get that. William Douglas made a deal, was sentenced to 20 years for manslaughter. He did not fulfill (in my opinion) his terms of the plea deal. He did not lead them to her body. I believe he lied about where she was. She deserved better than this.

  1. What happened to William Douglas?

  2. Funny ,he was a teacher near where I live.No justice there…Robin was so young.

  3. I went to High School with Robin, she was a great person and very talented. We all make choices and sometimes there not the correct ones. We try to learn by our mistakes and do better, I believe she was doing better in the early part of 1983. I also believe and pray the monster that murdered her will face judgement day by Gods hand. Rest in peace Robin, you will never be forgotten.

  4. He killed someone 8 year. White collar killer. No justice . Back in society business as usual.
