I knew him for 20 years and we were very close.
He was a very troubled man who was running from
a bad relationship and many problems in NYC. He was a ticking time bomb. He was very possesive over females and it was only a matter of time before he did what he did. All of us here in the Bronx feel for his family and the young ladies family.

I was not very close to him, I did not see him for years, I knew nothing about him and I had no idea he was capable of killing someone and then himself. I am a woman with two female children and it is so sad how men get possesive over Women. Women have to be more careful. I feel so sorry for the girl because she probally did not even know him that long. I am so sorry that it this way, why did he do it like this. No one deserves to die by the hand of another.

wow I musty be one of the few people not related to this psycho waste od air.

Seems the blame MUST fall with not only him but his fmily who did not have him committed sooner.

At least there will be no waste of money on a trial and extended wait till he went for his "flu" shots

It's crazy where was any one when we had to stop him from hurting plenty of other females? where was anybody when we had to talk him out of hurting his self? where was anybody when he was stealing from us and getting us into serious trouble? where was anybody when he almost committed suicide numerous times? where was anybody when he was lost in his life? nowhere to be found of course. But, now look at what happened, now everybody loves him and cares for him. It's pretty weird, I and many others knew he was destined for this in some form. He was not caring and if he was wishing for a family of his own it's news to me. He was lost a long time ago and no one is god. no one can determine if a person lives or dies regardless of anything. Lastly he knew the girl for only months why would any one count on making a family with someone they don't really know is beyond me. I offer my condolences to the girls family and his family, however, he left his actions to be suffered by others thats weak as a man and a human being......

where was anybody when she took the life of that child is what im tryna ask.some people make mistakes.mayb he realize what he did after he killed her that why he killed himself??..does that get through your thick skulll.you cant blame this all on one person.im not saying he isnt to blame.but you guys make it seem like its all his fault.he didnt randomly decide to wake up one day and just kill her.so stop with the where was anybody questions.cause all of his relatives lives far from him.how the hell did we know he was gunna do this.sometimes people keep there troubles in and noone ever knew they were troubled n one day they decided to juz let it out.it shocked us all to know he did that but hey it happens.n like i said b4.if u dunt got nuthin to say then DONT SAY IT!!!!!!..

I did not know any of them but I pray that in this time of pain and confusion that you can take comfort in knowing that none of them will ever have to suffer any sort of pain any more. It was a very tragic thing for me to look out my window and see their bodies laying there. I went home and cried for her and him and hugged my daughter and let her know how much I loved her. Life is a journey with up's and downs. We all make mistakes and hopefully we try to learn from them. But taking someone's life is never the answer. Two wrongs will never equal a right. I am not here to judge anyone but I pray that somehow both families take comfort in knowing that a lot of people were praying for you all and still is today. God is not to blame for the wrong we do in this world, we are. We have to be able to be truthful to ourselves and accept the responsibilty for the effects of our actions. What happen was a bad thing but some good came out of it for me. It allowed me to stop running this race of life at the fast pace I was going and to slow down and appreciate every single moment I have on this earth. I spent my weekend thinking about how short life can be for some people. That woman had no idea that Friday April 25 was her last day on this earth. We take things for granted, we talk about plans of tomorrow and next week and next year when we really need to live in the here and now, in the "this moment". I am sorry that they are both dead but this tragedy was a warning for me from God to learn to live everyday as if it was your last. Don't take it for granted that tomorrow is promised to you. My condolences goes out to both families.

EVERYBODY HAS THEIR OWN OPINION ABOUT THIS SITUATION, THE BOTTOM LINE IS HE HAD NO RIGHT TO TAKE MY SISTER'S LIFE. SHE DID WHAT SHE THOUGHT WAS BEST FOR HER. YOU SAID HE WAS LIKE AN UNCLE TO YOU BUT HE WAS A NIGHTMARE TO ME AND MY FAMILY. YOU SAY HE WAS A GOOD PERSON, GOOD PEOPLE DON'T KILL THEMSELVES. IN MY HEART I KNOW I HAVE TO FORGIVE HIM BUT I WILL NEVER FORGET THE PAIN HE HAS CAUSED TO ME AND MY FAMILY. OBVIOUSLY HE HAD MENTAL ISSUES ANYWAY!!! SO REGARDLESS IF IT WAS MY SISTER OR NOT HE PROBABLY WOULD HAVE TAKEN SOMEBODY ELSE'S LIFE EVENTUALLY. I WILL LEAVE YOU WITH THIS THOUGHT MARIA, WHAT IF IT WAS YOUR SISTER HE HAD MURDERED, WOULD HE STILL BE LIKE AN UNCLE TO YOU? "PROBABLY NOT" !!!!!
