I went to beauty school with Crystal. Angelica would come in all the time and play with the hair rollers. We use to laugh at her little butt crack everytime she bent over. I just found out about this horrid event yesterday. My heart aches for crystal and the baby, as well as the rest of the family.
Crystal and I did not get along towards the end of school but nevertheless, I am riddled with grief. We were at one time, friends and I knew her baby. This is just awful.

What a horrible thing to say! Rick was not a bad person. He Loved his daughter and I'm sure his granddaughter very much. I am sure race had nothing to do with it. He had to of just snaped due to the pressure of not being able to care for his family. I was once married to him. I can't imagine him hurting either one of them. He must of been in great dispair.
HE LOVED HER SO MUCH HE HAD TO SHOOT HER. I understand... sometimes love is a harsh master. Good thing you divorced him or there would be police tape around your apartment too. By the way, I was wondering, did he have any grandchildren he didn't love enough to shoot??

I have to agree with you. I worked with Rick for five years. He whole world was his daughter and grand-daughter. When I knew him, he was working two jobs to give them a home. As far as I know, no one has stepped forward to clam the bodies as yet. Do you know if his family knows about this?
That's awesome. He's such a role model. In fact, I'm going to go into the living room and shoot my own daughter because I just love her so much and I'm so devoted. Maybe first I'll do what Rick did and get two jobs to support my daughter, THEN.. I'm going to have to SHOW MY LOVE BY BLOWING HER EFFING BRAINS OUT!!!

i would like to say that the grand daughter was a very close friend of mine and its true that her grandfather loved her and his daughter very much. he was fed up with his daughter doing drugs and being unfit as a mother and of his grand daughter running off and not listening to him. i am not saying that what he did could be forgiven, because it can't. i remember her name was angelica, about a day - a week before the murder she was going to sing a class song and she came up to me and said that she was going to sing the song for me and that she loved me. i remember going to skool the day after her murder and kids running up to me asking me y i was at skool, they thot my sister died because her name is also angelica, but i considered the young 8-year old as a younger sister as well because she was there for me always. rest in peace angelica, i'll always love you. <3
