Sad, but not shocking:
So yet another national alert goes up for a Pretty Young Missing White Girl (meanwhile, some two years later, Stepha Henry is still missing and CNN, CBS, MBNBC, et al could care less about that) and it turns out that she was a budding porno star on the side. Yet, the police, who seemed to have just found the body, want us to believe that there's no possible link between Emily Sander's lifestyle choice and her death.
Authorities said the preliminary physical description of the body found about 50 miles east of El Dorado matches that of missing college student Emily Sander. Investigators refused to give details about the state of the body or how it was found.
Sander's case drew wide attention after it was revealed that she appeared nude on a popular adult Web site under the name Zoey Zane. That site was temporarily inaccessible Thursday, as were several sites that bill themselves as "fan" sites of Zane.
But Police Chief Tom Boren insisted Thursday that Sander's Internet activity had no connection to her disappearance.
"The issue of the Internet and the spinoff of that has been literally crippling our investigation," Boren said. Police said publicity about Sander's explicit photos brought a flood of tips, many of them false leads.
Boren said the cause of death was not yet known. An autopsy is planned.
Emily Sander was not a wholesome girl, she was a porn starlet who had over 30,000 subscribers on her adult website. One can imagine that she led a life that was not only exceedingly immoral, but fast, loose and dangerous. Yet, one has to wonder what would make any young woman want to live a life of porn? But we don't have to look any farther than the world we live in to answer that question. After all, we live in a world where we duck from personal responsibility and core moral values are being undermined the media and MTV--to the point that even the dirty and disgusting porno industry is becoming more and more accepted in mainstream society. And Sander's family was supposed to be "shocked" at the news that the young girl was an internet porn queen? Or is is that the family is just ducking from the responsibility they had in the girl's life? It's far less likely that the family are behaving honestly if they had permissive feelings concerning towards moral issues like divorce, sex, homosexuality and abortion. Far more likely that Emily Sander would still be alive if God, values and self-respect had played an important role in her life.
