There are alot of good in Athens. We send the bad ones to Columbus and name them Rob. We dont have shootings every night like your place. Its a big thing because it dont happen that often down here.

i think it would be helpful if we just put a big tent up over athens and gas the entire community. there seem to be nothing but a bunch of inbred, violent trouble makers there. does ANYTHING good ever come out of athens?
FYI, it did not happen in Athens....it was Belpre. Also, he was not a college student and did not live in town. He was a recent HS graduate who lived in the country. This is unheard of in the area a complete shock to the residents.

Yes, I would agree that graduating high school is unheard of down there.

I think everyone is missing the big picture. The BOY is DEAD....there is no coming back. This was a senseless act that could have been prevented if the ADULTS who purchased the drinks for these young teens would have been mature enough to stop the fight when it occurred. But heck they weren't even mature enough to NOT buy them beer so what more could you expect. Now we (Lamar's family)have lost a young great loving son. No matter where it happened he IS NEVER COMING BACK.....think if this was one of your family members??????????

R.I.P. If the people who bought the beer had been responsible this would have never happened, ive known him for many years and he was a verry good person, I also agree with Doug from Athens, Athens is actually a good place, this is big, it has hurt many people. I feel everyone should respect the privacy of the Wilder family.

It rly disgusts me how some of you are talking.. the 17 year old needs to be locked away for murder right along with the parents that bought the alcohol!! i am a 17 year old "kid" from athens and just because alot of the other teens are drinking and partying to have a good time doesnt mean athens did it to them!! some of you need to wake up and have a reality check!! Athens didn't do this, careless parents did this. if that 17 yr old boys parents would have raised him right and the teenage girls parents would have some common sense none of this would have never happend!! its a shame we have to lose a very great guy before anybody wakes up!!!

Does anyone even read articles? Five or six kids all beating on one guy. Give him a medal for removing one piece of trash from this earth. I don't care what the kid did, there's no good reason for five or six vs one.

What if that "one" kid smacked a girl, or cussed out someone's mom, or was pushing drugs at the party? You don't know why they was kicking his ass but HE is the one who BROUGHT a WEAPON to a party. HE pulled it out. HE used it. He MIGHT have got his ass kicked but he DEFINITELY killed this other kid...

Are parents really this stupid? They have to learn that they are not their kid's friends - they are the parents!
