The man responsible for Joe Baiers death deserves to be punished to the fullest extent of the law. No matter how you look at it ,this was murder in cold blood. Joe was a good man and way too young to leave his family and friends. I hope and pray justice prevails in this horrible tragedy.

the guy responsible is a nasty child molester, that molested his own daughter and was put in prison for a while then released and now he lives next to a Church on Union Hill Road...he isnt registered at that address on the sex offender registry...I pray for justice for Joe

I'd never heard he was strangled. I just heard on the news there was an altercation. Because you can kill people durning an altercation accidentally trying to protect yourself. It'd be nice if all facts were stated.

No, I Just am wondering what happened. I just learned that he was strangled. From what I'd heard they were fighting. Since the news doesn't tell everything. If it is the way you guys are saying he deserves to be punished. Is he being charged?

I do not read the paper. All I saw was the article attached to the thread and it didn't mention it.

Your buddy Joe came to the guys door and was beating on it like crazy. When Filbeck came to the door Joe attacked him. Filbeck was defending himself. What he did in the past has no bearing on this. If someone comes to your house at night and attacks you as soon as you open the door, all bets are off. Filbeck was beaten pretty badly in the altercation. When toxicology comes back I doubt he will be charged with anything.

You're a piece of garbage disgruntled. I pity your sad little life, you live to troll topix and post on every thread with your dumbas$, Ill informed opinions. 0 people have ever agreed with any post you have ever made. Not to mention your poor grammar and spelling. You probably have a whore daughter that you have sex with. Sorry your parents touched you as a child but don't take it out on everyone else

How do you know what happened that night? Is that what that sick bastard told you? You're the only one I've heard mention the door being beaten. You must be one of his scumbag friends. You can rot in Hell along side Jimmy Filbeck. Until he gets there, Hell on Earth will have to do.

That never happened. Nobody was allowed on scene except police, coroner, EMT's, and the rescue squad. Family and friends of Joe were the only other people remotely close to the scene.
I don't know who you are or what your problem is but I suggest you keep your opinions to yourself. I doubt you knew Joe and what kind of man he was. He was a big hearted, great man that did not deserve this.
I hope the child molester Filbeck rots in hell for the crimes he has committed. Waste of good air.

Point out my "poor grammar and spelling" in the post. And as I said, prior crimes don't apply. They have no bearing at all on what happened here. And I agree. Child abusers are evil, but again it has no bearing here. This didn't concern that. What i posted is fact based on being at the scene. All everyone else has posted is speculation. We will see when charges aren't filed against Filbeck because it was self-defense. As far as you not agreeing with any of my posts, that's fine. I wouldn't want to agree with any of your twisted ignorant opinions.

You were not at the scene unless you were police, rescue, or the coroner. No one was allowed anywhere remotely near the scene! So if you were there then you are releasing information that is being used in an investigation.
I was 30 feet from the crime scene tape for 5 hours that night so go ahead lie some more. If you were there then you must have been in the murderers house because you most definitely was not anywhere close to where I was standing. I didn't want to comment on this post out of respect for the Baier family but you crossed the line.
