Horrific, but true

When FBI Special Agent Michael Gneckow was being questioned by Joseph Duncan’s defense attorneys in federal court yesterday, attorney Thomas Monaghan asked Gneckow how authorities knew how to judge the credibility of the details provided by the sole surviving victim of Duncan’s attack on the Groene family, 8-year-old Shasta Groene, after her rescue from Duncan. “At the time, we simply didn’t know,” Gneckow responded. “Some of the information that was provided by S.G. was horrific in nature. Some of the things were difficult for some people to believe had actually occurred.” But as the investigation later showed, Gneckow said, “She was right on.”

Gneckow also said that the official name the FBI gave the case while it was searching for the kidnapped children in 2005 was “Captured Angels.”
