Suicide attempt my foot! She surely succeeded in her homicide attempt.The so called "suicide" is in reality just an attempt for sympathy and setting up an insanity plea.This hoffific women should be behind bars forever.

God gives us children to LOVE & PROTECT against all evil. To be hurt from the person you trust the most is unimaginably. Having a 13 year old son, I find this very disturbing. To think that no one knew she was crazy. There are ALWAYS signs before things like this happen. There are always solutions to all problems and killing is not an option. May he rest in peace.

I personally know this women. This is a terrible
tragedy. I (as well as others who know her) can't
begin to understand what might have caused this to happened.
However, we are keeping Denise and the Kimzey family
in our thoughts and prayers.

I don't know the family. I do know that we all should try to reach out to people who need help. I can't understand what happened.....I don't think it is possible. I just pray for everyone involved, especially Jack.

I am the mother of a child around Jack's age and can't imagine what would bring a mother to kill her flesh and blood. May he rest in peace.

What is truly disheartening is that the last face he saw and knew was hurting him was his own how can a person live with themselves knowing they did that to an innocent human being that they gave birth to?

I cannot believe that this has happened in the town that i lived in for almost 7 years. I am sick to my stomach having just heard about it from a friend who knows i just moved from there about a year ago. I did not live on Linden Lane, but i know the street and i know of the family. I will keep them in my prayers and hope that his Mom gets the help that she needs and that his father, who must be destroyed at this point, will be able to heal and go on.

This tragedy illustrates the "sign of the times". With all our education and all our technological breakthroughs, man is still evil and sick and needs a Savior...Jesus Christ

William Kimzey was my boss at work for 9 months and a real family man. He and his wife were together for over 20+ years and loved his son and encouraged his tennis and soccer interests. I feel so sorry for Bill and it just hasn't sunk in that this could happen to a family that appeared happy from the outside. I wish and pray for their well being and may the little boy's soul rest in peace

Sad, Sad, Sad. My heart and prayers goes out to the victim and the families. I could never think of doing evil to my child in any way. Incidents such as this, have me to be over protected of my child and makes me a much better single/widower parent.

Prisilla: I believe you're referring to the Roselle Park, NJ incident. It happens too often.

You are completely correct about that; it's just that there were comments dated at least a year after the event. Very sad...
