I knew of this tragedy right after it happened, however was unaware of this forum. I found this website today by searching law enforcement info for the area. I have read all 82 comments.

first and foremost, I have to say how I despise the fact that a woman's life was taken in this manner and how utterly sorry I am to her family and friends. She obviously was not only a well-known and deeply loved person, but also a very good-hearted and generous lady. I am profoundly sorry for the loss.

second, it is extremely unfortunate that we must coexist with such rude and disrespectful people, such as the ones who have tried to use this forum for any other reason than to “respectfully” communicate about this horrific and appalling event.
As you have all done so well in ignoring and responding to them, I must apologize before hand, but I am compelled to say:
“To the disrespectful fools who tried spreading their plague of insolent nonsense “you know who you are” on this forum... well you meet the expectations held for such ruthless idiots and there is a special place in hell for you to disregard a brutal murder by electing to make ridiculous allegations or by saying anyone should consider the murderer's problems… as if that is an excuse for what happened. Hmmm, I wonder if that would still be your opinion if it were your loved one who endured something so incredibly horrific. You are an embarrassment to humans, but then again you are stupid enough to post the remarks, then you are stupid enough to not care that you are such fools“.

Third, whoever the idiots are that are making comments pertaining to grammar or education... get a life and stop harassing online boards you randomly google to criticize. If you yourself were educated, then you wouldn't be posting such stupid irrelevant comments.

I am also a part of online gaming and communities and understand how truly close someone can be with an internet friend. How sweet you all are for posting your heartfelt comments. She truly is missed, loved, and never forgotten.

I need some help does anyone have the number to Hahns office.
Apperently the great state of Illinois does not want to spend any money on the conviction of said murderer and are offering a plea of 20 to forty years for the premeditation murder of Norma. Seems her life is worth nothing but 20 years.
Be aware I will put this all over the press locally and Nationally. This is an atrocity and a tremendous injustice. Time for the good citizens to unite. Geo
Dear goerge, Please do put it all over the press. That county and this county doesnt care what happened, they want you to jus go away. 4 years ago my sister and her baby were murdered here in southern illinois, i know who did it and the police know who did it but have covered it all up even the crime scene i went to the press but got nothing but threats from all the cops on town i ddnt back away so please dont back away. If you want to murder someone do it here so you can get away with it.

Just got the news about Connie Vantlin
She was sentenced by Judge Hopkins to 50 Years with no chance of parole
She will be 87 when she gets out. We the family feel that it is long enough as she will probably not live to see freedom again. They are moving her today to Lincoln Illinois Correction Facility immediately. Thanks to all the numerous people in the procecutors staff that made this happen. Now maybe Norma can rest in peace.
Hello,
I happened on this site while searching for a friend from high school. Could someone please tell me that the deceased Norma Sines that this blog-talk is all about is NOT the Norma Sines who graduated from Northridge High School in Johnstown Ohio in 1969 or so? Please. And thank you.

Hello, I am Norma's niece and although I am unsure as to where she graduated school from I do remember that she did use to live in Johnstown Ohio. I visited her there in 1996. I will attempt to get your answer in the next day or 2.

In answer to Tamshine the answer is yes she did graduate from Northridge in or around 1969. She left Johnstown and moved around a lot, but called OHIO her home.

What a beautiful thing to see, all these lovely tributes from Norma's internet friends. In this day and age people reveal more of themselves online to "anonymous" friends, more of their inner souls, and a deep closeness forms that is usually unmatched by anything in the person's offline life where s/he doesn't reveal as much. The tragedy is that too many people die without receiving the kind of tribute Norma has received here. Too often, people die and their internet communities are never notified or given the chance to express their condolences or feelings about someone they knew and loved.

AJ is an amazing kid, he's so full of energy, and so, so nice.
After everything that poor boy went through, he's just a normal teen now.
Almost 17 years old and gorgeous.
He talks about his mother, he was at my house the other day, and he was swinging my baby sister around and he said "I remember when my mom used to do this to me when I was little"
And honestly, I started crying.
It's sad, for both Norma and AJ.
AJ for having to watch all this.
And Norma for suffering this.
I feel for all of you.

My sympathy to the Family. I survived a shooting. I don't know the Laws in Ill. But I do know in Indiana 45 is the normal sentence and they only serve half, or now I'm told its 3 to 1. The man that tried to kill me is getting out after only 17 years. So to the person that said 20 isn't enough, pray she doesn't plead insanity thats only a couple years sentence. I don't care if this woman was a saint or not, there is no excuse for murder.I can't get the news report on this , but as I said my sympathy to the friends and family.
