Why do you guys think she may be with this 34 year old guy? how do you guys get this information? this is how people gets wrongfully convicted of crimes they dont commit, because you guys assume things.

And if that thr 15 year old girls boyfriends the grandmother and parents had to know?? or else held them responsible for not setting rules and allowing this to happen i would blame her parents ....
