I lost a child, too dvc and sometimes it takes a while to just "let it go." In fact, I'm not sure you ever really get over it. You just try to get used to it.

What has happened to the privacy form everyone signs when they are treated. I will bet the mother signed the release for her daughter. No information is to be released to anyone except the names on the list. No hospital member needs to release private information on a patient, especially a doctor. I hope she wins a huge lawsuit on the medical personal who released information on her injuries. It does not matter how long since your child has died, I would never let it go. That is forgetting that her child was murdered, raped and beaten to death. Anyone who can get over all this after finding your child dead is a much stronger person than most parents. dvc72120, what if this child was yours? If you can let it go, you are a better person than I am. do not care if it is 100 years, imagine finding your child like this. You never get used to it!!!!

Let it go and get over it. The people have been dealt with and punished. The hospital did its job in training the employees on who can access medical records and the such and disclosures signed. The mother seems is so concerned others knew the extent of anne's injuries. get over it. you want to act like you are better than anyone else it seems.

Well, you're right Paul and I guess I didn't express myself has well as I could have. "Getting used to it" doesn't really come near the feeling I get when I think of my little daughter. I understand Anne's mother wanting to sue the people who compromised the patient privacy of her daughter and I have no doubt it has caused harm. I guess what I was trying to say is, after the death of my child I didn't think I could feel happy ever again. But as years went by and my family continued to grow I helped steer my family back to happy. I can't just let the death of my daughter go. But, I am moving forward and thinking happy thoughts of her as I go.

Every time I am reminded of this tragedy I question why the jury spared Vance the death penalty. He deserves to die for heinously murdering such a vibrant young lady who had so much going for her.

We should be thankful Vance got convicted at all! The evidence that was used against him in the Pressly case was from a rape in Marianna. However, despite DNA evidence, the Marianna jury failed to convict him. TWICE.

AuntPetunia, we all know why the jury in Marianna jury did not convict him and John Brummett wrote an opinion article that basically excused them. I like alot of what JB writes, but to this day, that article really rubbed me the wrong way. To those who say let it go, it's her daughter and her murder, so I say the mom is entitled to whatever she wants to do within the bounds of the law. It is just a shame that this animal was not executed.

I feel for the family. An unimaginable pain. This was all set in motion long ago. I find it hard to believe that Vance was spared the death penalty but that is what was agreed. I remember him being loaded into a police car or van with a smirk on his face and someone off camera cheering for him which he acknowledged with a big smile. I hope he is doing very hard time.

My wife died in 2007 at a young age. I have moved on from grieving but I think of her every day. There is no time line on loss of a loved one.
However this lawsuit looks a little like all about money. Where does it say those that viewed released info ? Grasping for someone's insurance payout.
