I was just wondering, was the kid who killed the girl I heard her name was Tyra Corey Starks little brother????? If so he was a good kid don't know what went wrong with him... Corey and I were best friends in the school days and also after school until he was murdered... What he did was beyond wrong tho and I feel very bad for the young ladys family... If you can answer me the question tho I'd appreciate it

I must say that its sad that the way the devil comes in a destroy our young men lives.I look at Corey Starks.A very good young man, raised well,and very intelligent.Gott shot mining his own business{life taken away}. Now his younger brother Kyle.. Very quiet spoken,easy going,neva been in jail for nothing.. And the tragedy that has just happen with him and the young lady.. He was in love with her and what happened after that I dnt Kno.. I wasnt there.. But I do kno Satan is smiling behind it all.. Lets draw closer to God and make the right decisions in life.. Last but not least we are not here to judge.Its praying time for us all.

Ok I'll tell ya. You can start with proper parenting skills, moral standards, knowing right from wrong, the apparent disreguard for human life. The list goes on and on. Try putting the blame where it belongs for a change and quit using the devil made me do it card. I agree that this is a sad situation. These horrible tragedies do not have to happen, yet they continue to do so on a daily basis. A murderer is no more than a lowly piece of garbage littering our society. It's time to take out the trash !

Black children stand under street lights in large groups all around Cahokia. Turn by Walgreens - go to the stop sign by St. Michael's. 20 black children will pound 1 black child into the ground. Where are the parents? Violence is learned at a very early age by black children. It is a way of life for them. Please visit Cahokia to witness the violence first hand. Are you aware that the only meal that some black children in Cahokia receive is the one they eat at school? Where are the parents? The parents are the ones who should be teaching their children self respect, values, morals, dignity, safety, love, etc.

Indeed it is a sad situation. I don't understand how one person can have that much anger within them.

Are you referring to the young man who was arrested for this crime? If so, I agree and I will never understand why anyone would be so compelled to take another persons life. Especially in the fashion that he chose to kill her.

Kyle worked for me for about two yrs and he was a great kid. I didn't think he would ever be able to do something like this. I feel really bad for her family and I feel bad for Kyle as well. He has just taken his own life away as well. My prayers fo out to both families
