|Junk food media gives glowing profiles of two cold blooded killers.|
The death of Nicole Lovell was much talked about in the junk food media. The 11-year old girl was allegedly meeting a guy who she met on social media. She would bolt from her home in the middle of the night to see this man. The timeline is shaky but the accomplice said that they stabbed the girl and stuffed her in a bag and tossed her in rural North Carolina.
Nicole was sharing her goodies on social media to the suspect David Eisenhuaer. He took a liking to it. They engaged in some talk and flirts. He said he's got a car and he'll give her a ride.
So for a few months before the killing, they would meet at fast food restaurants and engage in sexual acts. I can only assume two things. He was grooming the girl for sex. When he found out that she's was 13 years old and Nicole threatening to tell the law (i.e. blackmail), he flipped on her.
The junk food media's obsession with Missing White Girl Syndrome. The junk food media spotlights missing White girls and women who come from well meaning backgrounds. They end up missing and the family urge social media to react to it. Once it picks up steam the junk food media end up covering it.
There's thousands of missing adults and children. Most of these missing people aren't covered like the ones that drive politicians to enact legislation in reaction to it.

David Eisenhauer and Natalie Keepers also disturbed. They may have followed the Slender Man conspiracy. It could have been just a plot to rape or rob Nicole.
The two allegedly planned how to dispose and conceal the body of seventh-grader Nicole Lovell over that late January meal at the Cook Out in Blacksburg, Virginia.
The details came to light in a courtroom Thursday as prosecutor Mary Pettitt argued against granting bail to Keepers.
Keepers, 19, is accused of being an accessory to murder before the fact, concealing a body and being an accessory to murder after the fact.
Eisenhauer, 18, is charged with abduction and murder.
Keepers' motive, Pettitt told the judge, was that she was "excited to be part of something secretive and special."

The pair, Pettitt said, went to the restaurant in the days before the girl's disappearance to talk about the plot to kill Nicole.
Eisenhauer told Keepers how he would lure Nicole out of her home one night, take her to a remote location and use a knife to cut her throat, the prosecutor said.
After leaving Cook Out, they drove by Lovell's home, Pettitt said.
Investigators said they believe Eisenhauer had an inappropriate relationship with Nicole, a law enforcement official said. The girl was planning to expose their relationship, the official said, and investigators think this was the motive for killing her.
Nicole disappeared after midnight on January 27. Her mother, Tammy Weeks, went to Nicole's bedroom door and found it barricaded, the prosecutor said. Weeks saw an open window and realized Nicole was missing. So was the girl's "Minions" character blanket.
After an extensive search, Nicole's body was found three days later in a wooded area in North Carolina.
Pettitt said in court on Thursday that Eisenhauer corresponded with Lovell on January 27 at 12:39 a.m. through social media.
Also at Thursday's bail hearing, the prosecutor alleged Eisenhauer and Keepers bought a shovel and scouted a remote location for the killing.
Keepers helped Eisenhaur move Nicole's remains into the trunk of his Lexus, Pettitt said. The body was still in the trunk while the pair went to buy cleaning supplies, the prosecutor added.
After Nicole's body was found, police found Keepers at her boyfriend's house and searched the premises.
She allegedly sent Eisenhauer a text message warning: "POLICE."
The search turned up a "Minions" blanket and cleaning supplies, police said.

Pettitt said the autopsy report is expected to be finished just prior to the preliminary hearing.
Eisenhauer did not lead authorities to the body, according to Blacksburg police Chief Anthony Wilson, nor did he confess to the killing.
Authorities said they decided to arrest Eisenhauer after sorting through social media, exploring 300-plus tips and searching for other information pertinent to the case.
A spokesman for Kik, an app that allows users to send anonymous messages, told CNN that it had cooperated with an FBI investigation into the case.
