I went to high school with Michael Ratley...this is just unbelievable! It's sickening to think what people are truly capable of.

This is so sad and unfortunate. I have a strong feeling he will use his past depression issues to his advantage. I hope the jury does not by his insanity bullcrap, because he knew exactly what he was doing.

What's the deal with the arrest while his is in jail? I don't know what Rebecca (Effie's Mom) is talking about that someone else did this to Effie. It's OBVIOUS that Michael did this to her! What is her deal? He shouldn't get let off by any means just because he has been on prescription drugs forever! He definitely knew what he was doing and that fire was part of his plan!

Maybe the police should reopen the case of Shane Crawford. Michael was a friend of his, and it is rumored that he had an affair with Crawford's wife. Then Crawford ends up dead.
