Hey you guys the man has been arrested not found guilty yet. I wouldn't bet the farm that he will be convicted just yet.
What ever happend to "Innocent until proven guilty"?
I don't know if he is guilty or not but how about letting the jury decide.
Remember the Bible says what so ever a man soweth that shall he reap. I guess we will all see in time.

I read the article again & I didn't see that Gabe Hicks had pleaded guilty! I saw where the shooter & the lookout pleaded. So I don't think that included Hicks but I may have missed something.
Yes this was a horrible crime & it needs to be finished once & for all.

Don't misunderstand what I meant, if it were one of my family members that had been killed or injured I would be there raising hell to make sure all involved were proscuted.
I just don't know how much I trust WV justice system.

mr. hicks is an evil man, he needs to pay for hiring people to kill inocents.... in my opinion he is a coward!!!!! they should send him to prison they should let him suffer just like his victims had to..... They were so young, i dont care why he did it, or what they did, no one deserves to go through the pain and suffering that those young kids and there families had to go through. Chantel was the sweetest person i knew, she would give you the shirt off her back if you needed it. Jeff was also a very sweet young man, who would help anyone!!!!!! Mr. hicks needs to pay for what he has done!!!!!! When he is sent to prison he needs to be locked away in confinement and never see the light of day or never see another human being again!!!!!!

Like I said before, the only way that someone can know for sure what really happened is if they too were involved. Damn, there sure does seem to be alot of accomplices on here! I understand the family wanting justice for their loved ones, but again, you all are convicting him solely on what you have heard.

Leona,
The best thing for you to do is not even read this stuff. All it will do is piss you off!
You should just worry about taking care of your wonderful children, I know I have read things on here about your family that were really hurtful so just try to take care of what you can & leave the rest alone. You can't change people's mind so don't even bother to try.

Just reading topix and came across this. What happened to those people was not right. But they were not innocent people. Both Chantel and Jeff, along with two more people, and they know who they are, watched my family for days. When they seen what our routine was, they went to our house and took what they wanted to. Even a box with personal things in it. My children's memories and things that my husband had saved of his grandfathers. Along with guns and guitars. And gifts that were given me when I was in the hospital almost dieing giving birth to my child. I fed all 4 of them when they were kids and they were hungry. It broke my heart to know that they could have done us like that. One lived with me for a couple of months. And then they show up and try to sell me baby clothes that they had took from a store only a few days later. I let them know that I knew they were the ones that stole from me. So while they may would have given their shirts off their back. They were not innocent people.

But still I hated what happened.

Everybody has been told since the incident that Gabe was the man who hired those men to do this. Myself, I believe he did. Some people like to uphold Leona and thats fine, but dont be a hypocrit and talk shit about other dealers. Gabe has been one of the biggest dealers in WV/Va for several years now. Leona isnt stupid, she knew exactly what was going on, were all that money was coming from. I think she should be charged with conspiracy. As for their children, I really hate that they have to hear people talk about their parents, but dont you all think that people havent been talking for years about how Gabe and Leona are drug dealers? What about all the kids they sold pills to? Are those kids not as good as hers? Leona benefited from all that drug money, and Im not talking about her fake boobs, hell if she felt like she needed fake boobs to make her look good than more power to her. She lived good from other people addiction. Why should she not be held accountable?
What really bothers me the most is some of you get on here and tell her to hold her head high..yet talk junk about every other dealer and druggie. Is there a such thing as a GOOD dealer and a BAD dealer?

I never met Chantel...have saw Jeffery a few times, and dont care much for Don Ball either, but just because they may or may not of been theifs doesnt justify killing her in cold blood over a pill.
Obviously all three of them where up to no good that day, but who made Gabe God? He knew he couldnt call the police and report a robbery. What was he gonna say " Three people just stole my pills I was gonna sell"? If he didnt have the pills selling them, they couldnt of stole them in the first place and all of their lives would of turned out different. One of them might still be alive.
