Wink Colleen Ritter

Ok is it just me or does anyone think that Colleen Ritter (the girl whose parents were murdered by her psycho ex-boyfriend, and she was attacked by him) looks like the Singer Kelly Clarkson? i saw this segment the other day and I kept trying to figure out who she looked like and then it hit me. Does anyone else think this?

Hey does anyone else think Colleen Ritter had a sort of cheeky under-smile, that's the only way I can discribe it. She doesn't come off quite as bad as say Sarah Beard who laughed through her whole interview but it's there. I'm not saying Colleen deserved this but I would think there's alot more to this story than UM portrayed.

If both my parents had been murdered, and I was on unsolved mysteries telling what had happened, I would be extremely sad. I know that I would be in tears and have a hard time telling my story. I don't think that Colleen shed a tear. So yes, I can see what you are saying.

Yeah, she has a round chubby face. Kind of sweet looking, friendly all American type.

Question Colleen's psycho bf

Did they ever find her boyfriend? I remember seeing the segment semi recently (when UM was still on LRW) but I don't think there was any updates to the story.

Yep, they did. Rick Church (I believe that was his name) was captured after an off duty cop spotted him working at a fast food restaurant.

The update is on the bizarre murder DVD set.

I understand what you're saying, but she could've at least TRIED to look a little sad, for the sake of the show and the fact that she was going to be on national television.

Rella I don't want you to get the impression we think of Colleen Ritter as anything other than a victim. It was more of an observation that some made that she didn't show much emotion in the interview. Of course some people show emotion more than others. There's no doubt she is a very strong and courageous woman and I did like her attitude in that Rick Church had already taken so much from her and she wasn't going to allow him to take any more.

I do believe that he was apprehended shortly after the segment aired and I too remember them saying he was seen while working at a fast food restaurant. I can't seem to find anything on him. Maybe our resident inmate lookup expert Kadrmas will have better luck.

I couldn't agree more, I'm sure Colleen has gone thru a lot of grief and pain, it just didn't show that much, I mean we're talking about a 10-min. segment here.
