Sara was the most amazing person ever, and there are no words to express how sorry I am for her family and her beautiful little boy. She will be missed greatly and she is very loved.

Why waste tax payers money. Just take him out and hang him. If he admited he killed her why are we even taking up the courts time.?

Even Better. Take him to the end of town and tell him there is a car for him at the other end of town. Then advertise it to the family and community. We'll call it Community Justice Gauntlet and have the road lined with buses filled with kids 16 and older that have had trouble in the courts and first time offenders.
Make justice ugly and something to fear,Not just a place to have reunions school to be a better prisoner

Sara was an amazing photographer. We used her several times to take our photographs. She was very affordable, great with my children and just an all around wonderful person to know. She will be greatly missed and we plan to attended the funeral. You are loved greatly Sara and will be missed tremendously.

I am sad to say that this man is part of my family. You think you know a person... that just goes to show that you can not trust anybody nowadays.

My thoughts and prayers are with her family and her young son. As far as her husband i think Karen and S Melton summed it up

No one with any sense will hold that against you. Everyone has someone in their family that has done something bad. I think any support to her family from you would be comforting.

I'm so shocked by this. Sara was a sweet wonderful person, a fabulous mother, and a good friend. She most certainly will be missed.

The innocent is being punished, not Chad...their son. I pray that God wraps his arms around this little boy and holds him tight. He will have to grow up without his mother and live with the fact that his father is to blame. I pray that he can find happiness in his life. I feel extremely sad for both families. No mother wants to hear that her son has committed murder and could be that heartless. God bless all involved.

I worked with Chad for years at Norwalk and never in a million years did I think he would ever be capable of doing something like this - he spoke so highly of Sara all the time. I met Sara on numerous occassions and she was such an angel. Their little boy was the light of both of their lives. What a horrible tragedy...and a reality check that as much as you would like to think otherwise, you truly never know what a person is capable of doing.

Chad adored Sara. They had been together for a very long time. I don't understand what happened to them. This is so sad it makes me cry.

i really feel for the family of the victim and any children involved. Sometimes people just let things get out of proportion and ultimately loose control. God bless her family. This is such a sad situation,

Tricia Loftis is a dear and personal friend of Sara Bell, who has been with Sara's family through all of this, how dare someone accuse her of being a gossip.
Especially when that someone doesn't have a clue as to what was going on in Sara's life before this happened. Hey, Houston, Texas you should be ashamed
and we know exactly who you are.

ok people, someone has lost their life here, this is not the place for your mudd slinging gossip crap and it needs to stop now. I was one of Sara's friends and i'm glad that i had the pleasure of working with her.Sara did not deserve this. Sara was a wonderful beautiful caring person and she will be remembered just as that. Yes Chad needs punishment to the fullest extent. But that is in God's hands. But no one deserves to be done that way. Now her son has to live without her, but her family and friends will never go without letting Landon know how much of a wonderful mother she was.So if dont know Sara or any of her family and friends keep your useless opinions to yourself.

I'd like to think I was a friend to Trish as well, thankfully someone pointed this out to me.
My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends. If anyone has any information about a collection for Landon or the family please pass the information along.
Sara and I spent some time together with Sean in Sparta taking some pictures awhile back, if anyone is interested, I have a good one of Sara and Landon
and if you want to make a print theres a high res. I know its not much
