I still can't believe this happened. I was so deeply saddened to hear about this, and even I questioned why the mother didn't hear anything. I have realized, as an outsider looking in, that Lisa would have done anything as a loving mother to prevent this horrible act. I recently read that Lisa is now divorced and missing Lauren terribly. I know she always will. I pray for Lisa and her son all the time and they are in my thoughts constantly. God be with you Lauren.

Where was your God when this child was murdered? Where was this so called God, while this child was screaming in pain? Where was this so called God when this little innocent girl pleaded with her daddy to stop...???

Obviously, the man had a chemical imbalance or sickness. We should pray for all the family as they are all probably in shock. God Bless Lauren The mom I'm sure did not know what was going on. I live in a big house and you can be downstairs and not know what has happened. Obviously he was sick It is a very sad story. Pray for the family including Neil!
I will certainly be praying for Neil......praying
for a speedy death by injection. Hanging would be
better but we don't do that anymore.

This monster claimed his daughter was the devil and thats why he killed her.(Insanity
plea). Now why did he feel he had to rape
the devil? I think we know who the devil
is in this case.

I think it's just an excuse. Were alcohol or drugs involved?

How does a "normal, nice, loving family man" turn into a mentally insane person without any clues ? First of all, that senario is so unlikely, let alone unheard of... Seeing Neil's photos - he reminds me of a married man with children who was a high school teacher and got arrested in the act of going to (what he thought was a 13 year old girl's house) after corresponding with her on an internet chat room. Yes, he spoke to the news correspondant and seemed totally "normal" - but what normal person would be interested in having sex with a 13 year old girl ? What a sad society... I pray for all of the innocent children...

yes the mother should be under investigation, and please don't make up any excuses that he has a chemical imbalance, that's everyone's excuse that they have a mental problem,

I being a mother of four myself would have never left not one of my children in the house when taking their father to the hospital for a cut on his hand . There is no way you can tell me that she didn't know something was going on in that house, because it wasn't that huge of a house. Even so any mother can hear the slightest sound coming from their baby I don't care how big the house is that's a bunch of BS I personally think she should be charged to for the simple fact she didn't protect her child no one let alone a child should ever have to go through such a horrible death people on DEATH ROW don't even suffer that bad, but every dog will have his day because believe me all that he did to that baby is going to be done to him ten x worse in jail... As For the Mom she'll get her's maybe not right now but it will come for the simple fact she's going to have to live with this for the rest of her life and that's going to be her "PRISON"

You should take into consideration what a horrible person you call your friend and even more we have the right to comment on what a horrible person he is for the simple fact he gave us the right to when he decided to play God and take the life of an innocent child so you take into account of his family which was Lauren who's speaking for her obviously not you.....

Amen! Leave Lisa alone and support her. Looks like Neil also went thru more money than Lisa knew. he may have had seveal deep secrets. Financial contributions are needed. If you are reluctant to give in the form of a check -- gift cards for any local grocer or chain would be much appreciated. This way you can be assured Neil's defense will not see any of it.
I wouldn't contribute a damn thing to her nor that family what needs to happen is they need to remove Lars from her Custody because obviously she isn't capable of being a mother because a MOTHERS first role is to protect your off spring and that she did not do...

Most people are truly suportive, but I agree that the speculators ought to shut their mouths and open up their hearts or wallets.
Donations that are strictly going to Lars, not in any way shape or form to Neil are gladly accepted at the Clarendon Hills Bank.
That's the problem with the residents of CH you think everything can be solved w/ money or you feel money can keep things like this from being Public ...I do believe that there are other that should be looked @ in this neighborhood because you all try to keep to many secrets and look what happens Money Can't Buy Everything you need to remember that...Bye The way Lisa needs to have the Jail cell right next to NEIL...

Even I have to admit that this guy should be introduced to a tree-shreader, or put into a cell with Hannibal or SAW.

I dont think that you people realize that there are family members and friends reading this... as a friend i dont think that any of you can have a valid opionion if you dont know Neil or Lisa. I hope your partents tought you if you dont have anything nice to say then dont say anything at all.
I am a 17 yr. old high school student and you people with your negitive comments are effecting alot more people then you think. so maybe next time you post a comment stop and think and if you have nothing nice to say then keep it to yourself.
and for the person that said Neil was a bully then you obviously didnt know him because he was not! He tought me in sunday school and he was a very good man!
so please keep your comments to yourself!

Most of the people posting comments are the parents of children and let me tell you all something none of you parents know what is going on in your childs head. Alot of parents dont know what there children go through at school or at work, alot of parents dont know how much pressure there really is in life... and no Neil may not be a child but im sure he didnt tell Lisa everthing. I mean do all you married people tell your spouse everything?? Stop and think.
Please Leave Lisa Alone At Least
if she did something, with the technology we have today... the police would know and along with the community.
and for the people with the money comment... come on are you serious? i know that Lisa does not have very much money...
leave this family alone and do something better with your life then saying bad things about people.
Trust me i had my opions about people like Neil and i thought the same as all of you but untill you know someone that this happens to... you really shouldn't say anything at all
and now that this has happend all you can do is pray or help but dont be mean
