it is scientifically impossible for D.J or Sonya to have commited this crime. There is a hurricane of circumstancial evidence against them and only a thunderstorm of evidence to support the idea that they didn't do it. unless they had accomplices who actually commited the murder, how do any of you figure it's possible to get in a dispute with someone, let them drive off, wait four minutes then get in your' car and drive the opposite direction *(heading towards the police station to file a report on the incident) and get to the police station only one minute after the call comes in that shots have been fired, all while having no gun powder residue on yourselves or the car you were driving. At 80 mph it takes 20 minutes to get from where she was killed to the police station they went to....... for the love of god use you'r logic. Good peoples' lives are on the block and the populace are screaming for blood, I know it's impossible to reason with a mob but this witch hunt is killing me because people I care about are getting dragged through the mud and hung out to dry in a box for the rest of their lives when there is enough concrete evidence that they didn't commit the murder and that evidence was dismantled in court because the dispatch officer "sometimes used the clock on the wall instead of the clock on the computer" to write down the transcript of the calls that came in...... This is insane.
now let me tell you something, my daughter was in the same cell with that evil woman and yes she and her son did do it.she wanted to take all the blame for he could raise the children.they are sick people and who soever thinks they are not guilty is an idiot.people please don't blame the church, it's the dumb asses inside that isn't right.

I'd like to make a comment , for
I also was once engaged to Damon for about 3-4 months -- during which time, he was cheating on me w' the person who was to become his first wife ( of whom I've held no grudges towards ) He never had shown me his violent nor threating ways, but I'd sensed that things just weren't right. Following these subconscious instincts and hints & suggestions from others, I was able to get out of what would have been a dangerous situatin unscathed.

I went thru alot of the bullshit that Damon and Sonya did with Nikkie. She's my best friend. I know personly the HELL that they put Nikkie thru. The abuse,threats,and the lies. Whatever
Sonya wants she gets. And Nikkie stood in the way of her and her son. I personly heard Sonya threaten Nikkie's life. I heard Damon tell Nikkie that she would have to go before he left his mommy dearest. So for the rest of the world Damon and Sonya deserve everything they got and more.When they killed Nikkie, they took a mother from her children and a child from her family. They also took a dear friend from alot of people.

Erica I was not cheating with him while you were together or anytime. I talked to him yes and most the time I talked to his Mother. How was I to know that it was the mom that made all the decisions for him. I am happy you got out fast. I hope all is well with you and your life. Don't think about him he is the past.

I'm willing to wait and see what comes out at the trial before i judge anyone; i wish some of you would try to do the same
WTFE..guess you know how it turned out..any man,,especially a grandmother that would kill the mother of her grandchildren and try to kill the babies as well will burn in hell..AND yes they did try to kill the babies too..you should be on your knees praying for forgiveness for supporting such evil.

Just go to the Georgia Department Of Corrections web site and up at the top of the page are some prompts for various subject info , one is for inmate queries . Go to that part and follow the directions , it will ask by name or by number . Sonya is at Metro State prison in Atlanta for women because there our tax dollars will support her medical needs . Damon is at Valdosta State prison where maybe he has finally found the love of his life and is now being abused daily like he abused his women . You may also go to the same site and inquire about the different facilities and what they offer to inmates such as education , counseling , medical and dental needs as well as vision care , physical fitness , and several other opportunities that they might not have otherwise had access to if it were'nt for us paying for it .

Damon is listed under Damon, Bamberg in the GDOC database. Not sure why, but you will miss him if you don't reverse the first and last names.

I was married to one of DJ's family members. We ended up homeless and temporarily moved in with Nikki & DJ. I knew he was trouble when he got pissed at my spouse and start breaking everything in the house that he could get his hands on. He even got a gun and came storming outside. I think the only reason my spouse & I weren't shot is because of Nikki. I think she convinced DJ & Sonya to drop us off at a local shelter and leave us be. Nikki was so sweet. DJ is a monster and extremely evil. The worst part is he appears to be nice when you first meet him. His evil is hidden. Sonya, you can see the evil pour from her soul the first time you see her.

Now take your southern lynch mob and go in-bread in your back woods with your sister/mother/aunt or whatever weird relative she is.

Before you go criticizing other peoples spelling and grammar, check your own. "In-bread"? Really? Good job of making yourself look like an a$$ there.

well it doesnt sound like u knew those 2 evil people too well..looks like plenty of evidence was found..and i agree with nikki's dad..damon deserves to die screaming while his devil of a mother watches and then dies the same way..and no im not judging them at all..God will..Yeah they can be forgiven but they will still answer to the Almighty...Any grandmother or dad who could do that with those babies right there are nothing short of evil..and may i add by watching the tv show,,they are really STUPID people as well..

I watched the show Thursday night on the Bio Channel and then found this site shortly thereafter on Google and read every single post. Then went back and watched the 2:00am re-run. The deputy from Montgomery County really had the Bamburgs read. Thank God justice was done!(By the way, it's Kentucky and not Georgia).
