As someone who is was in the same mission at the same time this all came down,
then became aware of some of the people familiar with McKinney's time at BYU
etc, my perspective is somewhat better informed than most I believe.The facts are simple and sad; her obvious mental problems are such that if her
parents hadn't been millionaires, she probably would have been locked up for her
own and the public good. She was released into her parents custody
so she could see "Close Encounters of the First Kind", thereby
saddling her millionaire dad with ~$200,000 in the lost bail.One can
sum up her personality problems by simply asking the following questions:Since she was a 'beauty queen', and a millionaire's daughter, why couldn't she
get a second date at BYU?Why did she call supposed boy friends up in the
middle of the night, and threaten to have them professionally hit if they didn't
go on another date with her?At 27, why was she chasing a 19-old boy, when
she had all these supposed advantages?
How sick to twist a den of iniquity where forcible rape took place into a
Our LDS Missionary son told us of similar incidents in Western Samoa in the
early 2000s.Maybe Joyce isn't as crazy as everyone thinks she is.
I'm sure it's disgusting, but I have to admit that it has peaked by curiosity.
I'm dying to see it. I wonder if it will include the fact that she was fixated

I agree with the previous commenter. I was waiting to read something other than
the comments of those supporting the x-rated movie. "Documentary"?
"Clean fun"? Was the experience sanitized for the tortured
missionary? Here is another attempt to mingle sick sensationalism with the
genre that usually shows respectability, trying to garner that quality for
itself. It won't work. Changing definitions of words momentarily to suit the
growing audience for sewer entertainment only fits those who enjoy that kind of
sadistic behavior--by proxy, of course.
And of what possible value is this story???
