Jennifer Flores I absolutely agree with you, in a time of such tragedy no one has the right to judge. Best wishes for you and your family as you try to get through this horrible situation.

With all due respect they lived in a double wide with thin walls not in a mansion with sleeping quarters in a remote part of the home. If we are to believe the story that the girls were fighting the parents should have been aware. Also the girl going to the sheriffs sons house is also highly suspicious. There are many unanswered questions but the bottom line is we have a dead wonderful girl who did not deserve to die.
