Jessie Davis of North Canton, Ohio is due to deliver in 2 weeks. Her mother went to her home and found Jessie's 2 yr old alone. The house was a mess. Apparently Jessie always kept everything in its place.

I hope this isn't another Laci Peterson.

I've been watching this story, and there have been a few comments made that make me think of the Laci situation. It doesn't sound good at all. :(

I have a bad feeling about this one. The toddler is saying, "mommy was crying", "mommy was in the rug". Doesnt sound good at all. Wonder if the toddler could ID the person as the one that made mommy cry and put mommy in the rug. Crazy and scary.

It sure is. I would think that he would have said something about daddy if daddy had been there. That said, I think I heard something about the dad was supposed to pick up the kid for visitation, called, got no answer and let it drop. Did I hear that correctly?

I've read conflicting stories about how the custody/visit thing panned out.

I just heard an interview on Fox News. It was with Nikki, one of his exes. She had nothing good to say about him. He kidnapped her daughter many years ago. He toldthat kid that he was going to take her to a swingers party and introduce her to swinging. Nikki has all sorts of restraining orders against him. She has since relocated to So. Calif.

She says he is very good at manipulating the system.

In most cases, it is the husband or boy friend. This is not looking good. It could also be someone who wanted to steal the baby. That has happened, too.

I wouldn't guarantee that a toddler would be able to identify daddy if he planned this ahead of time, and wore even the lamest of disguises. If a Santa costume will fool a toddler, so would a ski mask or a wig. Not to mention the possibility of hiring someone to do it. The odds are more in favor of the father than a stranger looking for a baby (though yes, it has been known to happen). When I was in graduate school, were were taught that the two highest risk times for a woman to be the victim of domestic violence was either when she was trying to leave the perpetrator, or when she was pregnant. The leaving meant sense, but I was really shocked that pregnancy would be a trigger.

Yep. ITA.

Someone found a baby on her doorstep about 45 minutes away. The baby had a newborn outfit on and had formula in the basket. It was left on the backdoor step of a retired nurse. No ID had been made last I heard.

That poor family. At least that little boy is young enough to be able to forget what he saw.

The baby girl was found on the doorstep and is alive, thank the Lord. What bothers me about these kinds of situation is how much more prevalent stealing babies while in the mother's wombs is becoming these days. I mean, 10 years or even 5 years ago you never heard of such a thing! I'm glad that in this case the baby is ok, while the mother is still a question mark. But what else are we going to do to each other? :(

Does the baby on the doorstep definitely belong to the missing woman?

They don't know, yet. they are doing DNA tests to see. This is such a sad story.

Makes me want to move my 20 year old pregnant daughter home with me, especially since she is living in an apartment by herself.

The father of the baby is a cop - that hasn't been mentioned here, but is an interesting fact.

This story is so horrible all the way around.

Here in Hawaii last week, a man attempted to stab his estranged wife to death, she was about 2 weeks away from her due date and their 13 y.o. son tried to intervene and was killed by his own father. She survived, but her baby didn't. What is this world coming to?

Another interesting fact is that he is supposedly part of an investigation (Federal I think) into that police dept. for discrimination. The way they brought that up made it sound like it may even be considered a possible setup by others in his dept. since he caused this investigation against them. Being a cop, he would've known they were going to check his phone records when he claims to have called her. I just hope it doesn't turn into another Lacy or Jon Bennet case that drags on for years before a conclusion.

Unfortunately domestic violence is a prevalent problem in law enforcement homes. Itís estimated that domestic violence is 2 to 4 times more common in police families than in the general population. Sadly most police departments donít provide adequate resources or intervention, too many are willing to turn a blind eye. And these are the people that are supposed to protect us?

I've heard this before, too. I suppose part of it is the fact that law enforcement is typically a male-dominated field, and men tend to encourage that rugged suck-it-up attitude about this stuff. I also bet the high exposure to violence and strife desensitizes people to violence within their own lives. That, and stress probably plays a factor. I don't envy the work of a police officer, and I definitely appreciate their role in society. Personally, I think I'd struggle with depression if I had such a job.

It's not only prevalent in the police fields, but in the military as well. :( You know after the whole Lacy case, they are definitely looking at the husband for this one. It's cases like these where I definitely support not only indicting someone for the murder of the female, but also the baby as well. Not sure if they did that in Lacy's case, but they should've.

For some reason I am thinking it is not the ex, not sure why. Wouldn't you think though that the little boy would say "Daddy put mommy in the rug" if it had been him? I don't know...I guess there's really not a lot to go on right now. I know that he's had problems in the past but I'm not getting the feeling it was him.

When the Lacey thing happened I knew in my gut it was her husband that did it. In the JonBenet case...no matter what the evidence says, I still think the parents had something to do with it...with this one, not so sure. Just don't know how he would benefit from killing her. They were already seperated and he had a girlfriend so it wouldn't be for that reason. Not sure if there was an insurance policy or what. It will be interesting to see who it is and why. I would like to see them actually find her alive but I am pretty sure she is dead. It's just sooo sad that a person would even think about killing another person let alone a pregnant woman with a baby in the house. :(

This is such a sad story. That poor little boy... does anyone know who he with now ? Grandparents? And any new news on whether that baby is her's or not?

The latest news is that the baby is not hers. It was abandoned by another woman.

I thought that too (about the kid saying "daddy put mommy ...") but as someone said, the dad could have been in disguise. Also, the kid may have said that, but media may have edited that part out until they know the facts.

Some of the quotes I've read don't make him sound innocent. One would assume he'd be beside himself with grief, and he sounds angry that he's being treated like a suspect. I would almost expect to be closely examined if my boyfriend went missing. I would think that the only sentiment I'd express, if my spouse were missing, is "OK, whatever, if finding the killer means looking at me than by all means do so and get on with it" and he seems to be more of the mindset of "why are you accusing me?"
