Missing internet porn star

The newest tabloid scandal of the hour involves a missing 18-year-old from Kansas, whom it turns out was an "upstart porn star" (quoting ABC):
Her Web site may have been taken down, but pictures of an upstart porn star named Zoey Zane can still be found on the Internet.

Now investigators in Kansas who have been searching for 18-year-old Emily Sander, a college student missing since Friday, must consider a startling discovery: Sander and Zane are the same person.

Sander was last seen leaving a bar in El Dorado, Kan., with Israel Mireles, 24, who has since taken off. Police say Sander met Mireles for the first time at the bar.

Suddenly the girl described by her grandfather as a "sweet," good kid appears to have been leading a secret double life as an aspiring adult movie starlet.

Sander's brother, Jacob Sander, confirmed last night to The Associated Press that his sister was, in fact, Zoey Zane, an actress who describes herself on an introduction to her Web site as "a spunky little teen with a super sexy side."

"As soon as I turned 18, I started shooting for my site," Sander writes under her screen name.

Nikki Watson, who described herself as a close friend of Sander's at Butler Community College in Kansas, first revealed Sander's double life Wednesday, telling the AP that Sander "enjoyed" making movies for the extra money. "Nobody in El Dorado knew besides her close friends," Watson said, adding that Sander recently signed a contract with a pornography company and had just told her parents over the Thanksgiving holiday. Sander's boyfriend, according to Watson, did not approve.

The FBI and Internet crime experts from the Kansas Bureau of Investigation have been called in to try to determine whether Sander's work as a porn star may have contributed to her disappearance.
A bit of a warning here? Watch it, gals, making your own porn might get you knocked off.

After leaving the bar with Mireles, the two went to a motel. Law enforcement was called when the motel manager (accompanied by Mireles' boss) later found the room covered with blood. DNA tests are under way as I write. Meanwhile, as stated above, Israel Mireles is long gone.
The revelation that Sander was keeping a double life as a porn star came as a shock to Sander's grandmother, who said she did not believe what people were saying about the teen. Earlier in the week, in an appeal to the public, Sander's grandfather, Clement, described her as "a sweet little girl" who has "done real good in school."

Sander is described as 5 foot, 3 inches with brown hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing jeans, a "Don't Mess With Texas" T-shirt and sneakers. She has multiple tattoos and body piercings.
My prayers are with Emily and her family.

Hardly surprising that thay are playing up the "porn kills" angle....and even less surprising that the usual antiporn mafia is playing up this case right along with the usual tabloid media.

One of Jill Brenneman's favorite trolls, Gretchen, referenced the Sander/Zane story in a comment to a post at JB's MySpace blog on the Saudi court sentencing of a rape victim to lashes due to the fact that she attempted to demand justice for her assailant.

But hey, nothing better than a nice juicy "innocent girl degraded and killed by porn" story to reap profits for the tabloids and Fixed Noise, right??

Now...I wonder what will happen when they find that the abduction may have had nothing to do with porn?? Will they retract all of the windy rhetoric about the "evil" nature of women or the thinly veiled "the slut deserved it" undercurrent??

I wait with baited breath....yeah, right.

I think her porniness was just a symptom of her overall horishness and penchant for bad boys...which is what caused her to engage in high-risk activities with folks of low character.

And then get killed. Well, you keep playing in the kitchen, and you might get burned...

Let's just stop calling her a "sweet little girl," then. Sweet little girls don't do porn and pick-up slugs in bars. I'm sure that's just the tip of the iceberg too. Almost guaranteed she was a party ho who loved to drug it up as well.

Anthony Kennerson said...

First off, ByrdBrain, let's cool your fantasy a bit; she has not been confirmed dead or even harmed. This may yet be a more typical case of a missing girl with no relation to porn whatsoever.

And actually, jackass, "sweet little girls" can indeed get with so-called "bad guys"....and usually, it doesn't always end in tragedy or even a bad date. That's not a porn issue; that's a rebellion issue.

Of course, in your twisted world, "sweet little girls" would simply keep their legs closed (until they open them for you, that is) and not even get into porn or sex to begin with.

The more you type, Byrd, the more you indict yourself. I strongly suggest you quit while you are ahead before your mouth issues a check your ass can't cash.

Prove it or shut up.

Byrd:

That was way out of line. Period. Not all porn gals are party whores, as you say. Wow, she liked sex. Wow, she made money having it. Wow, she did porn. She was also a student, and someones daughter, and other peoples friend, and probably a nice person.

SHE DID NOT DESERVE TO GET KILLED.

Christ.

And ffs, it's not like "nice good girls" get killed every day. Adding the porn element to it just drives up these fucking vultures ratings.

PORN DOESN'T KILL, PEOPLE DO.

Get it?

"Prove it or shut up."

That will require her party friends coming out of the woodwork. I don't know if that will happen.

But for 18-yo's (who can't legally drink yet) to be hanging out in bars is already a red flag for substance abuse, amongst other things..

Let's just say she is showing classic symptoms of "Britney Spears Syndrome."

a body was just found just a little while ago, El Dorado is about 30 mins north of me. My thoughts are with her family and friends.

It's a small town, everyone knows everyone and going home with someone from a bar is nothing new, esp for a college girl(or fucking boy). The sad part is how many people will now think this girl brought her death upon herself.

everyone has the right to be safe, and only sociopaths would disagree.

DaisyDeadhead said...

Byrdeye, you sound like a cartoon, but if that's okay with you, do go on.

One caveat: No more references to "hos" or other sexist insults on my blog, thanks.

And yes, SassyWho, only disgusting pigs think anyone brought their murder on themselves.

Bird - you sad, deluded, ignorant little simpleton. Please refrain from trying to live in the real world and retreat back to your Huckabeean utopia. You are of no use to us.

Daisy said...

Authorities in El Dorado say a body found 50 miles east of town matches the description of Emily Sander. For that reason, police are now calling her disappearance a homicide.

Police have notified Sander's family. A positive identification will take some time.

Sander was last seen Friday night leaving a bar. She was last seen with 24-year-old Israel Mireles. He has now been named a suspect in her death

Police say they have talked with the operators of an adult website that Sander posed for and are convinced that it did not play a role in her disappearance.

you know what, a friend of mine got drunk a few weeks ago; she is most definitely a sweet little girl! She's innocent (doesn't get sexual innuendos and jokes until a minute or two after they're pointed out), adorable, young (18ish), and an utter sweetheart. She plans on going to a bar this Friday and wants to do jello-shots with us this weekend.
Another friend went to a bar last night and got smashed (and wanted to go home with a few people--but he was too smashed and had started to feel tired and ill). He's a really good person too (though not a sweet little girl--a Texas gentleman instead perhaps).
Good people, nice people, sweet people, innocent people, etc. go to bars, hook up, get drunk, etc.
And no one--whether they are innocent, sweet, young, old, grouchy, "bad", rebellious, etc. deserve to get raped or killed.
Someone may make choices that have bad or horrible consequences (such as going home someone who is, unknown to them, planning to do harm to them), but it is the perpetrator's(s') fault for whatever harm they do. Not the victim's.

I hope that the one who is really responsible (aka, NOT Ms. Sander) is found. I hope that Emily's friends and family can have some closure. I wish Emily well on whatever and wherever her next journey is.

Byrdeye's just trying to justify his toxic theory that rape doesn't really happen that often because most women who get raped were really asking for it. This just demonstrates that Byrd is a fucking idiot.

As for Emily Sander, my heart goes out to her friends and family. I hope they catch the murderer - who really is of low character.

"She was probably the most independent girl I know," said Nikki Watson, a close friend. "She was so anxious to get out on her own and make something of herself. She was ready to take on life."

What a waste of a great future pornstar. Cute, young & tight. This is a true tragedy. She has left many thousands of potential fans empty-handed & blue-balled. RIP Zoey.

kuntpumpher and byrdeye –

Take your sad views on human life and just fuck off.

It really is all the worse because the mother f'ing Mireles killed her, buried her, then proceeded to go onto 4chan and tell exactly where she was buried, which turned out to be the location indicated in all reports of her body being found.

Not only did he do it, he thought it was freaking funny, and made a game out of it.

This isn't an assumption or second hand information, it's 100% true, and there's proof if you want to see it.

Really deserves worse then he'll ever get..
