I knew all of them as well. Still wondering and bewildered at what could have all taken place. They will be missed greatly.

THIS IS WHAT WAS IN THE AJC:

Pritchard was engaged to one of the women, Lela Alford, 45. The second woman, 28-year-old Tayna Nooner, was Alford’s daughter.

Are there photos of the people who were killed? I understand that the man was Herbert Pritchard and he was a dedicated volunteer at one of the Atlanta Metro churches. But we don't know the entire details and we may never know. My heart goes out to all families.

They were all nice people; why smear their names? The blessing is their names were not published in the original article. Let sleeping dogs lie. Please don't publish their pictures.
Both families are already devastated enough.

Lela Faye Neyland was a good friend and a very nice person. She worked for me at the VA Medical Center in North Little Rock, Arkansas in the early 1980's. I was at a lost for words when I read that in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Paper. She and her daughter Tanya Nooner funeral services will be today December 30,2006 in Little Rock Arkansas at 11:00 am. She will be truly missed.

A full federal investigation is underway because the victims were investigating a national sting operation involving a multi hundred million dollar law suit and investigators have to determine if there is any link to the case and the alleged murder suicide.

I just received the horrible news today. Tanya was a bright and talented entrepreneur. She will be truly missed. Let not her death be in vain! If you are in an abusive relationship, find out how to get out and stay of it! Contact your local domestic abuse hotline or Men Stopping Violence.

We should not speculate and form opinions based on minimal information. Any comment made as to what happened is speculative. Only those that were involved know what happened, and unfoturnately they are not here to tell the story. Cobb County Police Department is a very capable law enforcement agency. Give them time to complete there investigation. I'am sure they will determine a logical explination to why this tragedy occurred, and reveal the appropriate details to the public.

Tanya and I had a budding friendship as we began to work together this past year. She was a special person, so young yet wise beyond her years. To say that I will miss her is an understatement. I will continue to pray for her family.

I appreciate the kind words about Tanya. You that knew Tanya understood that she was a bright, talented and honest young woman. Tanya and I were not just Father and daughter, we were the best of friends. There was no subject off limits. She was my only child and I can tell you I miss her deeply. I don't know why or understand why this had to happen but I have put it in the hands of God. My greatest joy in the world was to hear her say "I love you Daddy". Knowing that I will never hear her say those words again, saddens me unbelievably. Thank you for your prayers and help me keep her memory alive.

I worked with Lela at Concessions and I will truly miss her. I had a chance to meet Tanya on one occasion. We are all taking this very hard here at work. My office is next to Lela's and I feel her spirit often. She meant alot to me and to others she touched in personal ways.

I had met both Tanya and Walter David Brown. I have not yet figured out how this is related to David as no one has mentioned his name. It seems from what I have learned that Lela, Tanya and David were the victims. Any other news.....

Hello,
Your Tanya was my best friend. She was my maid of honor in my wedding in July. If possible I would like to speak with you via email or phone? Please respond back if that is possible.
