The terrible news was released late yesterday that the decomposed body of a young woman found late this week in Reno, Nevada was that of Brianna Denison. Denison has been missing for several weeks and foul play had been expected for some time now. Brianna Denison was last seen sleeping on the couch at a friends house in Reno. Reno police are now looking for a serial rapist and now also killer in their city. Another girl was recently raped and police believe that both Denison and the other girl could have been assaulted by the same man.
When I first heard the news of Brianna Denison's disappearance and the circumstances she put herself in before that disappearance, it reminded me of how hard it is to be the parent of a young girl today. From first hand reports, Denison went to sleep on a couch at a friends house right in front of a glass door where anyone could have looked into the house and seen her sleeping. A picture of that event is something that would scare any parent to death. However, young people seem to have the internal feeling that nothing bad is going to happen to them, even when they see bad things happening everyday on the news to other people.
Put simply, there are evil people in this world just like there has always been. Some of these evil people sleep during the day and go out into the dark of night to seek out prey just like a hungry animal. Young people, that do not fear these predators, are easy prey for the sick and twisted minds of rapist and killers. No matter how much a parent tries to warn or even scare their children into acting more responsibly, it never seems to work. Even today, with the confirmed death of Brianna Denison – tonight some other young girl in the US will end up doing the same thing she did and if some predator comes along, that girl will end up dead too.
My condolences go out to Brianna Denison's family because even though they probably did the best they could to prepare Brianna for the dangers of this world, their words fell on deaf ears. Reno Nevada is known to have one of the best police department in the country and I believe they will find this serial rapist and killer, soon. I just wish there was some way for parents to be able to show their children just how dangerous some people can be without sending them into so much fear that they would never leave the house.
