I am absolutly shocked and saddened by what's happened to Kristina Greengrove. I didn't know her but I'm a friend of Patrick Guinane, the man suspected of killing her. Im so shocked because I know Pat to be such a good hearted person and would do anything for anyone. I never would have thought this would happen. I'm so sorry, My heart goes out to her family and friends for their loss. It's truly tragic.

Patrick was a coward for leaving the seen.I think he was drunk or on drugs becouse you dont just hit a car like he said and leave.He should kill himself for taking such a person from us....I is truly tragic

wow maybe you should kill urself for being such an idiot... how could u suggest something like that? don't u understand that then the same pain that u r going thru his family and friends would be? you know my heart goes out to ur family but maybe u should take all of ur anger and direct in a good way and make a good difference in the lives of others instead of bashing someone that you dont know.. btw this is one of patricks best friends and he is a good kid who would do nething for neone but people make mistakes... in most hit and runs the person is not on drugs or drunk they are simply in panic mode... look up the stats before you open your mouth

What Patrick did is leave the scene of an accident that resulted in taking the life of another human. I do believe that drugs or alcohol were involved. If no t the so called panic mode would allow him to turn himself in instead of having to be chased down like the coward he is. He is getting off easy for the CRIME he commited!
He should not be allowed to get behind the wheel of any motor vehicle for a long time! He ran like a coward and tried to cover his tracks. How did he explain the damage he was trying to get repaired befor anyone could put the facts together. I guess he was in panic mode then also. Open your eyes! It was a cowardly act plain and simple. What he did was death by auto and leaving the scene of a accident. Jail is where he should be for a few years to break out of the so called panic mode and denile he is in!!!!!

well simply shocked theres a right and a wrong and ur friend buddy is wrong. he didnt have panic mode hes just a selfish puss that couldnt fess up to something he did bc he wanted to get away with it! he ruined alot of peoples lives. Personally I hope simply shocked that ur friend gets locked away for a very long time.. bc if u checked ur stats there urself theres a law in new jersey for "falling asleep" behind the wheel.

Nunya: He has plea bargened for 1 year in prison. For a justice system to accept such a deal is repulsive. This is for murder plain and simple! Think about that the next time you hear about someone getting stopped for a cell phone, seat belt or speeding 10 mph. over the limit. This whole thing makes me sick!!!!! The justice system is a farce. It is who you know that determines your fate when you break the law. If you are conneceted you don't have a worry in the world. A drop of a name, PBA card,A phone call or the best if you have a badge you are un stoppable!!!!

It's not murder. It's man slaughter. It just goes to show you that it's best to leave a scene of a crime if you are drunk or smoking weed. Then, they wont get ya for drinking and driving. he killed a girl and he only gets 1 day short of 1 year? oh well. Kristina is gone and I think the friends of her need to lay off, it's been almost three years now. She was no hero or nothing.

we need to layoff and she was no hero. so what does that say when you die. your dumb as hell. maybe someone in your family or friends needs to die the same way kristina's did to really feel it.

what do you people mean by "she was no hero?". Any one who knew Kristina would know that she could be considered a hero to anyone she loved. She could always make you laugh when you were mad or upset. she always made you laugh anyway. anyone who could or cared enough to do stuff like that is considered a hero to me. she didnt deserve what happened to her but it happened and its over with. i spent years "hating" pat and i didnt even know him. i still dont. whatever. he will have to live for the rest of his life knowing what he did. i try not to think about what he did, just to remember how great of a person kristina was. he is not worth thinking about. but for anyone who says "he should go kill himself," you better be careful what you say. exactly, he has a family and friends that care about him and his life too. im sure they're hurt enough to know what he did. they dont deserve it either. kristina is still talked about today, and she forever will be remembered because she had a great spirit and all out rediculous and loveable personality. she was the second person i hugged after we threw our graduation caps in the air. i still dream about her.

After all this time has anyone gone to the township an request a light be put up on that street where this poor girl was hit? It is impossible to see anything on that street. The township is as much to blame. That is a terrible location where many accidents happen only you do not hear about it until someone dies. Poor girl standing behind the parked car in the dark. Yes he was wrong for driving away. How the hell would he know if he hit anything. Ever drive on some parts of town that are pitch black . Why don't you all shut up or find a way to make things like this less likely to happen. It was an accident, not murder, not intentional. I can not imagine the pain the families (both) have to be feeling. Do Something instead of BS..

How can any of you say that he was a coward. I'd like to see you hit somebody and possible spend the rest of your time on earth in a prison cell. You think he should be punished for something that was an accident, lets throw somebody in front of your car and see you go to prison for the rest of you natural born life. You probably wont last 10 mins in there. Always looking to blame someone else for your sorrow. I'm sure there was something in your life you did wrong.

I'm sorry. But how can you say he is NOT a coward? He killed someone and left the scene and very sneaky tried hide it. If I hit a cat I would stop. He had no conscience and that's scary. Makes me sick. He took someone's life and his sentence is a joke. Plain and simple. This girl had her whole life taken from her. The fact of the matter is that if he turned himself in it would have been a accident. But he didn't. He lied and hid. Murder.
yeah ok

If he didn't have anything to hide he would have turned himself in. NOT HIDE

I am currently the girlfriend of the loving, giving, wonderful man-Patrick G... I have known him since middle's crazy that so many people still have so much to say about him without knowing anything about him. He thinks of Kristina and her family everyday. He went through a lot of counseling and has to live with this for the rest of his's not "easy" for anyone. Even I have to take critisism from people for being with him. I have a child and trust my life and her life with him completely. That is never easy to say, yet with him, it is. Obviously throught the trial there was certain evidence n facts brought into the case, therefor his sentence was proven suffice. FYI he is not "off the hook" for another few years, refering to the legal consequences he was please don't speak on which you do not know all the facts. I am truly sorry to everyone involved. I lived in LEH at the time and yes, lights still need to be put up/fixed in that area and a few others in that town. That's all I am going to say. Thanks.

You heard me. She was NO hero. Sure she was a loved one, but really? What did she do? The things she was known for were being lade and ridiculous. She got killed, life goes on. She was no special and that says it. To call her a hero is to slap everyone in the face who truly is. Again, she was known for some irresponsible things. I knew her...I wont list them on here.

Ryan u should be ashamed of yourself to speak if someones loved one like that she may not have been a hero to you but she was to a lot of other people sooo keep your opinions to yourself... yes it's sad a young life had to be taken soo soon but fighting and negativity will never bring Kristina back let the poor girl rest in peace she is in a better place care free
I hate Pat G

First of all he's a scumbag his whole family are scumbags. I know them I used to be friends with him until he told me what really happened that night. He was drunk and high on cocain, then he said that stupid c*nt shouldn't have been standing in the road (which She wasn't). He knew what he did and the first thing he thought of was how to get away with it. He has no remorse for what he did. Also why wasn't his family charged as accomplices since his brother and step dad were waiting for him to get home to help him hide his truck. Which he also told me. What pissed me off the most as that this scumbag wasn't telling me the story... he was bragging about it. F*ck him and his family, and as for his girlfriend defending him... I hope she gets hit dragged 20 feet and left for dead in a pool of her blood.
