If they pick him up, the'll take him in their car. They WON"T let him drive his own car. Because he will run !

OBVIOUSLY THE POLICE DON'T THINK IT WAS A SUICIDE, THEY ARE QUESTIONING PEOPLE. THE CRIME SCENE IS DESTROYED IF THEY LET HER PARENTS OR ANYONE IN THERE. AND WHAT ABOUT THE BODY ???? IT NEEDS TO BE EXUMED AND REVIEWED FOR CLUES.

STUPID BEVIER AND MACON PD !!!!!

I think its horrible what happened to April. I worked with her a couple of years ago and its sad that something like this happened. BUT, the reason rumors are going around the whole town of macon and bevier is because people are spreading them. Example: Al Abbadessa being arrested. He wasn't arrested and nobody but the police know what is going on. Im not trying to be rude, but the reason rumors start is because everyone talks and spreads them like they are doing here. Al Abbadessa is a very old man, and very KIND man...that I worked with for a while. He has a heart problem and can barely be at the pear tree the whole night that its open. Why would people speculate that a fragile KIND gentle man would do this to her? RUMORS...thats why. Yes, a girl was killed/commited suicide, whatever the case may be, BUT starting rumors about someone can hurt them just as much. Think before you speak.

I heard from some people that Al admitted to the whole thing? I don't know whats true b/c there are so many rumors out there. But I do know that Al is creepy and an asshole to women. That is true, and I personally believe that he could have/would have done it.

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*
well if the people who as you say know their jobs actually would do them maybe the rest of us wouldnt have 2... The Cops here are definetly not smart. Ive been pulled over by a cop that didnt know that a zippo has cotton in it to hold the fluid so its not like we have rocket scientist for a police force.
if it wasnt for us that believed in april and that she didnt do it would they have even made it this far? i think not

How do you Remember the Warning Signs of Suicide?Here’s an Easy-to-Remember Mnemonic:IS PATH WARM?A person in acute risk for suicidal behavior most often will show:Warning Signs of Acute Risk:• Threatening to hurt or kill him or herself, or talking of wanting to hurt or kill him/herself; and/or,• Looking for ways to kill him/herself by seeking access to firearms, available pills, or other means; and/or,• Talking or writing about death, dying or suicide, when these actions are out of the ordinary.These might be remembered as expressed or communicated IDEATION. If observed, seek help as soon as possible by contacting a mental health professional or calling 1-800-273-TALK (8255) for a referral. Additional Warning Signs: Increased SUBSTANCE (alcohol or drug) use No reason for living; no sense of PURPOSE in life ANXIETY, agitation, unable to sleep or sleeping all the time Feeling TRAPPED - like there’s no way out HOPELESSNESS WITHDRAWING from friends, family and society Rage, uncontrolled ANGER, seeking revenge Acting RECKLESS or engaging in risky activities, seemingly without thinking Dramatic MOOD changes. If observed, seek help as soon as possible by contacting a mental health professional or calling 1-800-273-TALK (8255) for a referral.
I Ideation
S Substance Abuse

P Purposelessness
A Anxiety
T Trapped
H Hopelessness

W Withdrawal
A Anger
R Recklessness
M Mood Change

These warning signs were compiled by a task force of expertclinical-researchers and ‘translated’ for the general public.

I'm still trying to come up with some reasoning for April's apparent suicide. I also do not believe she commited suicide. None of the above symptoms were observed in her, her closest friends know what was going on in her life. She was one of the most out-going wonderful young woman that I had ever had the priviledge of knowing. For those of you that did not have the chance to meet her and enjoy her presence her on earth, I am sorry. We are praying for answers and praying for the family and friends that are grieving over the death of this beautiful young lady. R.I.P. April - we love you!

No one has gotten away with murder or anything else, as yet. Why don't you do April a favor and take your anger and turn it into a good memorial for the friend you lost? I am sure she would have appreciated that. Anger is the way more hurt happens. Let's put a stop to this explosive talk and do something to let her family know what kind of person their precious daughter was.

Rumors are just that - things people hear (not "here") and they pass it along to others. That is "spreading rumors". PLEASE learn how to spell if you are going to post things in public! This goes for everyone. I have never seen such a mangle of the English language as these postings! No, I am not an English teacher, but it is pathetic to see such mispellings.

I have the feeling that you did not know April because you would not waste time being on this message board complaining about misspellings and grammar usage. However, I did know April and she was a ray of sunshine. I think that she deserves to have her death investigated to the fullest extent. I know in my heart that April would not take her own life. I think every possible lead should be followed even if it is a prominent business man. May God Bless April's family in their time of sorrow.
