This is so sad, it is hard to believe either side. Only they know what really happened and they will face the ultimate judge one day. If she had not mentioned this to anyone - this would never have come to trial. It is strange.

I still don't understand that if he made her do it and she was that upset, why wouldn't she die trying to save her baby? The whole story just doesn't add up. I believe that they BOTH didn't want this child and together did this~she needs to own up to what she did (as well as he)!

Yes, it really does not add up, and I think you may be correct in your idea.

There won't be enough evidence to convict either one of them and that whole interview with the girl was coerced as the interviewer was leading her (according to the newspaper report) - He will get off you watch.

I actually know this girl and she is CRAZY!! I believe that she would do something as psycho as this. I have been following this story since the day the arrested her and that saddest thing is, she actually gave birth to another child this year! I have known Sam for many years, and I truely believe that this girl needs help. I hope to God, that she is convicted and goes to jail for the full amount of time. Who in their right mind could ever kill a child, and then I wonder what she was thinking after giving birth to her new daughter. I know that they don't have a body, but I would think at the fact she is totally admitting to killing her child, she should serve time for that. If anything, she should have her new baby taken away!! I don't believe it has ever been mentioned that she has a new baby. I worry about what she might do to this child if she gets mad at the dad! I also believe the boyfriend when he says he only has hurt her when she tried to assualt him.. I remember seeing her at a friends funeral 4 months after this happened and wondering how the heck she gained so much weight. She used to be a skinny little thing and then when we all saw her at the funeral, she had to have gained at least 40 pounds. I can't wait to hear what happens, like I said, I just hope that she gets what she deserves!!!!

Obviously you didnt know eric mattlock at all he was over 100 lbs heavier than she was and towered over her Ive known Sam her whole life and i know she isnt a angel ,but r u you should get your facts straight before you judge her or anyone . look in the mirror BITCH.... also what about the loser eric he sat up on the witness stand and lied through his teeth even stating he lived with sam for 2 years and never new they had a garbage shoot , PLEASE... oh yeah never had a job that whole time either so he wouldnt have time to take the garbage out would he. I think you better start loking into the biggest loser in the world ..

Oh, by all means, I am not saying that he is good. Are you kidding??? I just know how she is.. I am sure that as you state she is not an angel, I am not really sure your relation to her, but, maybe you don't know the "other side" of her either!!! I think they are both pukes and deserve to spend time in prision. I am sure that he lied just like she could have lied on the stand!!! I am a good person, unlike Sam is, so maybe you should really think before you tell me to look in the mirror.. and if you are a mother yourself, you would know that you would never hurt a child, let alone murder a child! That is something that Sam is admitting to doing!!

Thank you thank you thank you!!! I agree with you. I do know her! I don't know if he ever layed a hand on her but I would bet my life she was the abuser. I wouldn't put it past her to have faked the whole thing, and if not, killed that baby on purpose just to piss him off. And yet someone told me that she is not controlling.. haha! She was already off to try to ruin the next boyfriends life until she was put away! Girl is crazy!
