News - A fashion contest?

Published:

Last Edited: October 31, 2007, 2:19 am

I wasn't planning to blog anything tonight.  However, I wanted to see if there was any more information on the young student who was murdered and left in the trunk of her car after answering an ad on Craig's List for a job as a nanny, so I used Google.  This is what I got.

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,306317,00.html

I knew it wasn't a picture of the victim, since I saw her photo on the news earlier and she had curly hair and was only in her early 20s.  I guess Heather Nauert is smiling for the cameras, but I see nothing to smile about here.  Yes, I agree she's very pretty and has nice teeth and her hairdo is exactly what I asked for last time I went to the salon.  If you enlarge her photo, you can check out her sharp red blazer too.  But next to her posed photo is

"Tonight we are learning that 24-year-old Katherine Olson of Minnesota was murdered — shot in the back, her body stuffed in the trunk of her car where she was found late Friday night."

We're becoming a nation of glamour shots.

Heather Nauert did offer good advice about someone going with you for something from Craigslist - but then meeting someone with a gun, could mean that 2 people would be killed.

I think you have to be very careful about anything from Craigslist and be very suspicious.     One time I searched Google and found out a person was actually into foot fetishes while advertising for foot models!

So you were considering a job as a foot model? LOL Was he a sole proprietor? Be careful, because they often don't pay a salary, just by the foot. (groan) The last person I talked to who sold shoes was a real heel and very callous.

All jokes aside, this same advertiser is listed in my local area. He has ads under "sales positions" too. I guess he's a pervert who also makes movies for people who get off looking at women's feet. What a world!

Anyway, I agree that Ms Nauert gives good advice in the article, but my first impression (which is the one that often counts the most) was that her glamour shot next to a story about a slain grad student was inappropriate. However, I also realize that women often need to be pretty and "pose" to be news anchors and it's all part of the biz.

To anyone who is reading this comment, Craig's List is a great resource to find all sorts of stuff. It's also free to advertise if you want to sell something. However, when I've found job listings that are blind, I won't even furnish my home telephone number. This applies to newspaper ads too. HotJobs and Monster are filled with scams and work at home businesses that just want your money. I've probably lost out on some good opportunities, but I refuse to send a resume with my full name & address, tel #, etc. unless I know who is advertising. In this case, we don't know yet if the victim took precautions. She thought she was meeting a woman according to her friend and was planning to meet "her" at a park, although that still hasn't been confirmed. The internet gets so much bad press because it makes it easy for pedophiles, murderers and other criminals to contact people and disguise their identities. But in 1998-99 I met several men online through a dating site and never had any trouble, but I was super cautious. They were all normal, that is, as normal as someone of the male gender can be. ;-)

You can still do everything right and get bad results. What a shame this lovely girl picked the wrong ad to answer.
