movie was somewhat the truth
10 August 2007 | by ksgal1960See all my reviews

I am the mother of the child that David Woodward was sexually abusing and thank god my daughter didn't end up missing like little Amanda "May she be resting in peace". My daughter is the child David was grooming and if you remember the ending, they busted in to save my child. In real life this is not what happened...I personally wished they would have told the real events that happened..The person from WSU commented that David Woodward would stay home and babysit? I don't know where he got his information but isn't true...David Woodward still today believes he is innocent, I have letters to prove it..he will not admit he done anything wrong. The movie should have been more real so it can be more educational.

Posted from the Mom of the little girl who was David's victim, the one who David groomed and then assaulted.
