alt.true-crime › 8 y.o. girl abducted from home in OK
Looks like another girl has been snatched right out of her bed, as she
slept at home, and kidnapped. Eight year old Kirsten Renee Hatfield was
tucked into bed by her mother at 11:30 PM on Tuesday. By 6:30 AM Wednesday
morning, she was gone. Probably snatched not by a phantom or an alien, but
by one of the members of your society. A person who does not value the
sanctity of a child, because his own society did not value his own
sanctity, when he was a child.
Blood spots were found on a windowsill and on the 6 foot high wooden
fence in the backyard. The girl’s underwear was also found in the yard.
All of this virtually assures that Kirsten was indeed kidnapped, and
didn’t just run away from home on her own.
Kirsten’s 3 year old sister was in the room, and apparently witnessed
the abduction. But she’s apparently too little to provide a good
description of the suspect or other valuable info.
Interesting how this girl’s last name is “Hatfield”. Wasn’t there a huge
family feud years ago between the “Hatfield” and “McCoy” families??
Probably has no bearing on this case, just an idle thought that passed
through my brilliant mind. 🙂
Interesting case, I’ll keep monitoring it for any important
Take care, JOE

MIDWEST CITY, Okla. (AP) – With every passing hour in the search for
8-year-old Kirsten Renee Hatfield, there is a growing fear that she was
kidnapped after her mother tucked her into bed.
The second-grader was last seen Tuesday at 11:30 p.m. When her mother went
to wake her at 6:30 a.m. Wednesday, Kirsten was gone.
The room’s window was closed but unlocked. Police found blood spots on a
windowsill and on a 6-foot-high wooden fence in the back yard. The girl’s
underwear was found in the yard.
“It’s looking more and more like an abduction,” FBI spokesman Dan Vogel
said Thursday. “I think the possibility that she is a runaway has dropped
considerably in the last 24 hours.”
Kirsten’s room showed no signs of a struggle, police said.
Her 3-year-old sister was in the room Tuesday night but is too young to
provide much information, police Sgt. Tom Hoskins said. He said the girl
told police she saw someone come into the room.
“She’s been helpful but there are variances in her details,” Hoskins
Tracking dogs lost Kirsten’s scent about three blocks away from the home
in this suburb of Oklahoma City. Police said there was no way of knowing
whether the dogs were following an old scent.
Word of Kirsten’s disappearance – eerily similar to the abduction in 1993
of 12-year-old Polly Klaas in California – sent a chill through this
working-class neighborhood where bicycles, scooters, dolls and other toys
are scattered in front yards.
“We would always let the children play with each other outside. That’s
the way we were, but not anymore,” said Tiffany Hulsey, who lives across
the street from Kirsten’s house.
“We’re horrified,” Ms. Hulsey said Thursday. “She was like one of my
own. She didn’t run away, I can promise you that.”
