No one said we didn't have problems, we just have much less than your town. I suppose you live in one of those towns where you always lock your doors. I only lock mine at night. I leave for work, and go all day, never once locked my doors. Going on ten years now. Can't do that in your town.

Yes, unfortunately this is true. A very sad situation and my husband as well as my son and his fiancÚ spent the evening with the family. I will spare details for now as respect for the family, but I would like to see topix members refrain from ugly comments and allow this family to grieve. Brandy will be missed and we know she is In Heaven with her maker. I'm asking that everyone please pray for brandys mom, mrs c as well as the rest of their family, especially her precious little girl who is now without a mother. We really need to come together on this board and build eachother up, not tear eachother down.
Thanks to everyone for the prayers.

So true! I do not know this young woman but some of my family members do. When someone dies I always say, respect the family grieving because you know you would want the same in return. Whether you like someone or not, nobody deserves to die. And there is a little girl who is without a mother now. Thoughts and prayers are with those that loved her.

What a tragedy. God bless the family and keep them strong. In Jesus name, Amen. To Brigette, now more than ever, she needs our continued prayers, as well as strong faithed friends to lean on and guide her through this horrible nightmare, God bless you also.

Citizen you are so right. Life is too short, and we must try to find good in all we do, and in other people, because we just don't know when God is going to call us home. Our time here on earth is short, and we must rid ourselves of resentment and hatred and love one another, despite our shortcomings. Hurtful things that are said in anger can't be taken back, and they do harm. I was really glad that I could be there with mrs c and her family as she will need lots of support and positive encouragement as she walks through this trial. And mrs c, I am here to support you emotionally if need be :). God will carry you through this!

Careful there. I was one who had no problem leaving my doors unlocked in Erath then someone stole my new riding mower right out of my yard while we were home. My mom had her vehicle stolen right out of her garage in broad daylight while she was in the shower and all in the middle of downtown Erath. Misconception people Erath has crime toooo.

The challenge with facing the death of a loved one is that we have no choice. Having watched my mother lose a son and my sister lose a daughter, it is the most gut-wrenching thing to watch someone go through. There is nothing you or anyone can say to make it better, you just have to be there. I believe that the Lord brings us together to comfort each other. My heart truly goes out to all of you.

Everyone there was crying. I just got finishes texting Donnell. She will need a lot of help. But, if there is a brighter side, the statements we gave at CID last night around midnight will identify the killer and bring him to justice, and I hope for once, a jury gives him the death penalty. Harson needs to spend a lot of time on this case, get his best prosecutor, or maybe even prosecute it himself. That beast has no business running the streets. With all the prior felonies he had, I don't know why he wasn't locked up. Another case of our justice system failing us and look at the horrible result. A beautiful 30 year old girl murdered in cold blood.

The investigation is ongoing, but all evidence points to the fact that she was murdered, and it is common knowledge as to who did it.
