    Any minute now, the posters who hinted at her pulling some funny business because there was no movement in the case will jump right in and say they were wrong, right?

    As several said on the now-locked thread, an investigation like that takes time. Good job by the cops.

    I wonder if TMZ assisted cops with the investigation, since the perv reportedly approached TMZ about buying the tapes.

    Guess that kills the theory it was an inside job too. If he worked at ESPN I would assume they would mention it in the story.

    Story says the guy charged would contact hotels trying to find her. It seems like that would be confidential information, but I could be wrong.

    EA should take a cue from the star athletes she covers: register under a false name.

    I thought they reserved using first, middle and last names only for murderers.

    Saw it on Twitter 30 seconds ago and I posted it on the Christine Brennan/Andrews thread under the journalism topic thread.

    Man, there sure were a lot of people throwing shit against the wall claiming it was fact back then.

    It's a tough week for middle-aged scumbags hassling celebrities.

    Glad for Andrews. I realize celebs get a lot of perks - but I don't know why some get immediate sympathy when bad stuff happens to them and others are thought to have brought the bad stuff upon themselves.

    Come to think of it, if it was someone from ESPN, Leather would have been at the top of list.

    I was hoping it was Sean Salisbury so that penis-loving bastard can be locked up once and for all.
