I do not believe this to be true!! She was not the type of person to kill herself. The police just want to take an easy out and not get off their lazy asses and work. Oh and Bevier does not have a police dept. they have one cop. Macon County need help to get this straightened out and find the person or persons that did this.

Aint that something ! So WHY has anyone not gone to the police yet. Does anyone know where she was found ? Floor or bed ? I bet they didn't even finger print the knife. How can you slit your wrist and your throat ? I HATE to say this, but was she sexually assulted or ANYTHING like that. There are a lot of factors involved. I'll tell you this, I've heard from SEVERAL people that AL may have been involved. Now to read what I'm reading about him being in her yard and her being scared. Why would that scare her ? What did the voice mails say ? Did they get the tapes ?

THIS IS FLAT OUT BULL SHIT ! FIND THEM, AND LET'S SLIT THEIR THROAT . BTW--- NOBODY CUTS THEIR OWN THROAT ! Look up nationwide suicides.

"Self inflicted injuries." Does anyone really believe that nonsense. Sheriffs Dept. took the easy way out. Was any evidence gathered? If you found someone with injuries to their throat wouldn't you first assume fould play and call in a crime scene team.

EXACTLY ! No one cuts their OWN throat unless they were not sober ? The crime scene investigators should have been FIRST. Checking for signs of a struggle, evidence, anything. WHERE WAS THE EVIDENCE. How in the hell do you tell if the cuts were hers or done by someone else. COME ON NOW !

THIS IS SO SAD ! Hope no body kills me. Not here anyway or my family will never have any justice ! Suicide ?????????? RIP April !:(

Don't think that's true. His car is at the Pear Tree right now. Unless bond was posted. Surely they wouldn't let you out on bond if you were a murder suspect...who knows.

Well, wouldn't it make sense that his car would still be there if they arrested him at the Pear Tree?

April from what I hear was a vert smart, gorgeous, girl who would not do such a thing unless she was intoxicated, or drugs were involved. But Bevier and surrounding towns are SMALL but are always filled with BIG rumors. Al has been through alot within the past year, wouldn't you people feel horrible if it comes out he isn't guilty, HARSH. It all happened for a reason and april is now in peace thank god. Amazing woman and now she can live her amazing life the way it was intended.
Just keep the investigation to the people who know their jobs.
RIP APRIL*

If someone killed April they should be punished. Don't you agree? From what I understand, family was given the go ahead to enter her apartment 24 hrs. after her body was found. If this was a crime scene no one will ever find any evidence now.
