Case 143

Leigh Leigh

At 7:00 pm, Robyn dropped her daughter Leigh off at Roberto’s Pizza Bar, where she had planned to meet her fellow party-going friends. Robyn waved Leigh goodbye and reminded her to be ready to be picked up by her stepfather four hours later at the agreed meeting spot – or there would be consequences.
