First of all let me say to you who are cruel low life bastards, You all will pay for your words and Karma sucks. Now as a friend of Raymond's I knew the man and he was a great human being. He loved his Family and the few friends he actually had. He was a troubled man, he did need help and didn't really know how to ask. But il tell you all this its a shame that people died. But Il tell you this his life as worth something especially when the girl he shot was a Prostitute and turn tricks for drugs. She didn't want him anymore when he couldn't buy her drugs. and s she ended it. Now if you all want o judge go ahead. His life was worth something he had friends who loved him and respected him. And He was a man not a coward he did have a temper but as a friend he never hit me he only treated me with respect and il forever miss him. You cowards need to say your name. So if you cant say your name then don't post. You low life Bastards...cant wait til you all get your dirty laundry posted on topics.

The lesson here to be learnt is women stay away from old men. they go threw male menopause after the age 50 and nothing like a young woman to drive them totally bonkers.

I have known him for years. I liked him. He could present himself very well and at one time it would not have surprised me to hear he was governor of Ky.

On the other hand, he had a troubled side that did not make itself known until he became a public figure.

Not one person that I have talked with that actually knew both Ray's has been surprised that he did something extreme and irrational.

He was bipolar and quite possibly a psychopath..

The girl he shot was a prostitute? He was a convicted felon, who shot a girl, killed her father and brother, then the dirt bag killed himself. and all you can say is the girl was a prostitute.

Yep, this douche bag, this convicted felon was a real good dude, he shot that old dirty prostitute and killed most of the others. A real bravve person. You are the low life basterd for supporting the likes of this piece of crap. Raymonds dirty laundry has not been posted yet, only whats freshly washed and watched in public is being shown.

No one knows what happen in the last seconds of his life he could have got forgiveness we aren't his judge. The only one who knows where he's at for eternity is God because it was between him and God if he got forgiveness. Just because the other two people were murdered doesn't mean they went to heaven either if you wanna get technical. If they didn't have there life in order and they weren't saved and weren't living the life they should they may be in Hell also so judging Raymond goes for all we can't be there judge we don't know where any of them are today. I don't care how great a person you wanna say the others were if they weren't ready to leave this world then Hell is now there new address also. So let's leave the judging to God he's the only one who knows there finally seconds and there last breath.

Who found Raymond did he call someone or anything after the murders how did someone know to look at the graveyard? If he went to the home that morning prepared to kill them like the girl explained on the news considering she said her dad was ambushed he had to have planned to kill. Did he leave a note or anything? Parts of her story just doesn't add up if they broke up months ago and she says it wasn't a serious relationship then what lead up to him coming there that morning? Something had to have happen the day before or recently to lead to his actions I don't believe its from a breakup from months ago. That story just seems like its missing some major parts. Like the saying goes in every disagreement theirs your side, my side, then the truth in this case we can only hear one side. Don't get me wrong I'm not taking up for the actions no one should be murdered no matter what the situation is. Im only saying I think their is more to the story then we will ever know.

Yes her story has some major holes in it. Nothing condones his actions but her saying she has no idea wht brought this on is BS. No one is gonna implicate themselves in any illegal or moral wrong doings, ESP if everyone else involved is unable to give their side of the story. Sad situation period. Someone knows something, out of all the people involved they confided in someone about past events and ongoings with this bunch.

She claimed he was ambushed but yet she stated she was asleep in her room and Raymond busted in with a gun. so how does she know what took place before hand ?

Didn't she also say her dad yelled for her? So he obviously didn't just kill him when he opened the door if her dad was able to yell for her. Then she said he busted in her bedroom door and put the gun to her head and her brother hit his arm so he couldn't shoot her in the head but shot her in the back. I assume the little boy was in the room with her since she helped save him its amazing she could do all that while being shot in the back.she said it was a surprise visit but that's hard to believe she had no ideal what lead to him coming there other then a break up that ocured months ago. I'm sure there's a few details that still need filled in.

Raymond called his mother on his way to grave yard to let her know what happen and what he was going to do. She met him at the grave and watched him die. I'm family of his but I don't agree w. what happen he was a bastard and he knew what he was doing. I feel sorry for our family but I don't to him. He deserves what happen to him. He should have left the girl alone. She wasn't on drugs nor a prostitute just a girl wanting some affection.

I said the same thing about her story being shady. She would have been better off to say they was in a somewhat serious relationship and she broke it off. That would have at least given him a motive. Instead she really wants to claim that they just hung out nothing serious but she broke it off months ago???? I'm not buying what she's selling. Although regardless of the situation he had no right at all to take anyone's life but like someone else said she claims she was asleep so she has no idea exactly what happened but that her dad was ambushed.. What I just can't get my grip on is how In between 2 grown men and a woman how they couldn't have managed to work together to take over the situation and attack him and fight for your life. If they were asleep when they were shot I could understand but I don't believe that was the case... Either way both families need prayer more than ever so to both Smith's families I hope you all can learn to get past this terrible incident and move forward. I hope the girl a speedy and successful recovery and to Raymond's family I pray that your minds are eased. Your son, father, brother, uncle, and whatever else he was, was not an evil man only a man who needed someone to tell him that life can be so much better than what he was making his out to be. For the people who wants to bad mouth Raymond, shame on you. Shame on you for not being able to look beyond him and onto his grieving family who holds no responsibility for this terrible act. May you be blessed with sinless children and in if for some reason you aren't so lucky and end up in the same situation or worse with your own child, I hope that you will then see just how sharp the pain can be, how your mind is blank, and your world is in shambles. Then to top it off some heartless punks put how sickening and pathetic and evil and how terrible of a child you have and how they hope he or she burns in hell for eternity for the crime he or she committed. For the family's sake please keep that in mind that it could very well be you someday.

WHY in the WORLD would a 21 yr old girl WANT affection from a 53 yr old man??? She wasn't ugly from her pics...so why would she even give this guy who was older than her father the time of day?She should be embarrassed for even seeing this psycho even before this happen...what the hell is wrong with her!

she wasnt give a full report while struggling to talk just the basics and dont u all think a gun shot would wake u up and maybe him beating on the door, why dont u all wait till this girl gets well so she can give u all the details i know none of this people but not hard to figure out what went on a 5o ish yr old man get some tail of a young 21 yr old girl, and he doesnt want to give it up cause its his thophy piece and and she wasnt as impressed as he was and probably thought above the age difference and broke it off , and big raymond felt rejected and somebody was going to pay , what a jerk to shoot somebody with a kid in their arms know it could have went through her and into the baby that a real prize then his family get on here making excuses for him is bs , they should have got prince raymond some help for what ive seen he has always been a jerk off . but doesnt take a genius to see he didnt want to give up the sweet young tail
