      Yes. They were stupid and nasty enough to do the crime there, so it is in that jurisdiction. Maybe they thought it would be easier to get away with it overseas like that Aruba guy (His dad was the judge on the island) or maybe they just killed the person impulsively. Either way, they did it on that soil, period.

    ehem, so, she is pregnant…. by …I guess her genius boyfriend, And now trying to find excuses for being assaulted in jail… after she killed her mother…. that makes sense. The logic of too many people. There are anyways too many idiots in this world, reproducing themselves.
