November 15 OTR: Trenton Duckett

Greta Van Susteren apparently has decided to scoop
Nancy Grace in the Trenton Duckett story. I have never
heard Greta report on Trenton's disappearance before.
Back in September, Nancy Grace made huge ratings when
Melinda Duckett, Trenton's mother, committed suicide
after a tough interview with her. That was after the 2 yr.
old turned up missing August 27.

I have come to think that Nancy owned the Trenton Duckett
story like Greta owned the Natalee Holloway story. And
it was Fox News that started the squatters rights
competition on missing people stories. What bothers me
today is that Greta appeared on the O'Reilly Factor
earlier today before doing her own show and reported
some information I have heard nowhere else.

Greta's demeanor on O'Reilly was her old manic
self that she used to betray on his show when she
came on to talk about Natalee Holloway. Talking a mile a
minute, over-confident, authoritative, hyper, excited, giddy
about the information she brought forth. Just really
over-hyping it and she closed with "This is huge
Bill!". Now here's the part that concerns me. Print reports
and Nancy Grace say a Wendy's employee saw Melinda in the
drive thru twice on August 27. Greta's version inserts a
third sighting:

"About 4 o'clock in the afternoon, she was seen a third
time, the child wasn't there, but she was there with two
men and a woman."

I watched Nancy tonight. I did google news searches and
nowhere can I find any corroboration about the third
sighting. Later, when Greta did her own show, the Fox
News correspondent mentioned the third sighting too. On
both shows, she refuses to say the name Nancy Grace and
refers to Nancy as 'the pressure of accusations' with
respect to Melinda's suicide.

The third sighting makes the police report more believeable.
Where was Trenton? Was there a fourth female with Trenton?
If Melinda was at Wendy's at 4 pm, could she had returned home
in time to watch a video with guests as she reported initially
prior to finding Trenton gone? Were the two men watching the
video the same two men at the Wendys? (Probably not). So many
questions. Why is the third sighting not in any other news
