In hopes that the "Jennifer Wilbanks Story" will quickly recede, I offer the following advice:
To John Mason, the groom-to-almost-be: Get a life, John. Second, count your lucky stars. You could half excuse this sort of stunt from an 18-yr-old child bride being handed off from some oppressive home-church partnership into your overbearing hands. This chick's 32, and any 32-yr-old who can cause so much carnage over getting cold feet can do just about anything. Run away, John. Don't be so pathetic.
To "The Authorities:" Get a life. Also: Go Fuck Yourselves. It was you who were ejaculating all over the cameras in dire hopes that this would be another high-profile who-done-it murder investigation, with all the attendant press-conferences and cameras and attention. It was you with your whores in the
entertainment industry "news" media that pumped this whole thing up. Unless she was under some continuing physical abuse, or threat of same, which seems quite unlikely, the bride-to-almost-be is simply a stupid dimwit. Knock off the ridiculous talk of a "criminal investigation" (you fuck-wads) and the talk of suing what's her face for the "costs of searching." She didn't force you to be such idiots. She didn't force you to to make fools of yourselves jumping to every conclusion except the correct one.
What a carnival of fools, all around.
Update: Kyle Bennett suggests how a mature and rational society might deal with a Jennifer Wilbanks.
