  1. Is it really necessary to have this picture posted here? This article even states “Meneses has never faced charges relating to the murder” so why is the photo even of interest? Leave the poor girl alone. She doesn’t deserve to have her name and picture up on articles around the web.

    • I think long and hard before I post someone’s picture on my website.

      And I stand by the decision to post that photo.

      • Kudos Ann. I appreciate your journalistic integrity. Hope to read more of your updates here as the trial unfolds.

  2. Yes,
    absolutely agree with previous poster and the choice of posting the evidence pic

  3. Shes a minor in this photo if she’s 21 now. Why would anyone think this is acceptable?

  4. I think she is relevant, seeing as she wanted to marry him despite knowing he was involved in the crime
