Ok, I was not even very close to Natasha, I've talked to her in school a few times, but I was still torn apart by what happened. Looking at the situation from the outside, I think it is rediculous that anyone is making stupid and hateful remarks towards either sides. From what I've seen Natasha was a kind person who definately did not deserve any of this, her life was just starting. And the girl who killed her, I have never seen her in my life and I don't know her at all, I believe she will get whatever she deserves. Its up to the courts, not this message board. Some think she should die, or be put in prison for life, others think she should go free.. and some people think Natasha got herself into it, and some think she was just looking out for someone. Either way, its awful what happened and I can't stop thinking this happened to someone that I know and someone who had such an amazing future ahead of her. But leaving hateful comments is not going to solve anything. I truly believe there is no reason to kill anyone, or to fight with anyone, especially over something so small. Some people may think Natasha was looking for trouble but, from seeing her in school and seeing the type of person she is, I feel that its obvious she was trying to protect her friend, and I'm sure many people can say they would want to do the same for friends and family. It was a misunderstanding and everyone needs to look at it without biased opinions and realise that everyone has their thoughts on the subject and if you don't know all the facts then you shouldn't be pointing fingers. I just need to point out that After seeing Natasha for the last time tonight I will always think of life differently, The more and more I think of the fact that her life was just beginning, that everyone else in our class are all going through the same things and that she was too until her life was taken away. It just makes you realise these things can happen to anyone.. family, friends, people you work with, or people you used to talk to every now and then. You never think when you see someone that it could be the last time you see them, and you never think that you could die tomorrow. Life is a great thing and its a shame that it can be so hard sometimes. Rest in peace Natasha, everyone loves and misses you, you're in a much better place and you will never be forgotten.

To whom it may concern,

This is addressed to most that are notably, illiterate, stupid, obnoxious, pointless, and shear ignorant (which means to lack knowledge), in other words YOU!

Usually before one reports a story, and, or makes a comment, one should have details and all of their facts detailing the events; before an opinion is stated. Apparently that is NOT the case involving this story with Natasha Gonsalves.

Please, before you leave a comment, know the basics of writing, for your grammatical errors and misspellings make you look quite stupid. Natasha was a well loved child, she was a very beautiful, and talented girl. Though everyone is never quite innocent of anything, I don’t think she was, but do I feel that she had the right to die at such a tender age? The answer to that would be NO! Do I feel that justice should be dealt? Yes I do, but, it should be fair and all the facts should be brought into the light of the investigation.

It is in my opinion and in my viewing of our judicial system that, this other child (Bim), should be brought into justice, which she has been and sentenced to an extreme reality. Bim is a mother at the age of 18, not which, that is entirely her fault, clearly shows that; there isn’t a strong upbringing in her personal lifestyle.

I personally know Natasha and the family, and I know for a fact that, Natasha had a good wholesome upbringing, with lots of love, and she was never without. Tasha had a family that cared for her immensely, nurtured her, and had given her everything that she could have possibly needed; up until her death last Friday Morning.

Opinions are much like assholes, as in everyone has one? I feel that before anyone can comment on the situation at hand, that they should be well informed, and the truth of the matter is that NO one is well informed, with much of the media propaganda and the spiders of tales, spinning their tales from their spinnerets (For those of you that don’t understand, this is what we call an allegory. In other words, a metaphor, for the media propaganda)…

Too many stories are flying around, which is why an investigation is ongoing, so, do the family Flores and Gonsalves a favor, and let them grieve and mourn in peace. Natasha was a very articulated and beautiful child, she was a hopeful optimistic, whose inner fire burned brighter than most children her age. I, surely do not care if the media calls her an adult, the truth of the matter is, she wasn’t an adult as of yet; she was a young adult, but not an adult.

Tasha was still a young girl, with an innocence that was stolen from her, sure, most of you can sit and judge, and I’m not saying that I haven’t,‘cause I have. I am saying that, the murderer (Bim), at least she can sit in a prison cell, for years to come and rot away thinking about the harm, ill-will, and wrong doing; the bad choices that she made, and can ask forgiveness from this so-called “G-d”?

Many quote the “Bible” and none have attested to the meanings that they find in the scriptures. Do any of you truly understand what you are reading? Gather the notions and true concepts that are found in the scriptures? Clearly when you spew out false wordings such as “Jesus said this” does NOT qualify any true quotes. Please people, before you say that the “Bible” says this, read correctly before you make yourself out to be an even bigger illiterate idiot than you realistically are!

To the Family of Natasha, know that you are all loved, know that the hearts of those that knew Natasha well love her, and will continue to love and cherish her good name, long after she has been away from us all.

To the family Flores, and Gonsalves, we are ALL hurting, we are ALL suffering, and we are ALL longing for comfort, over the loss of our dear little Natasha. What a shame and what a loss. I can be like any of the torch wielding villagers and I can say “Hang that girl into the gallows”, but I won’t, and the reason why; it’s not going to bring Natty back…

It will not make our hearts feel any better, nor will it sustain our grievance. I hope that time presses on this girl hard though, I hope that time shows her things that would only make us go insane.

I hope that she is showed the glimmer of true hell, and that she will grow to truly understand the injustice that she has caused upon herself… She didn’t break a family, she only made them stronger!

I would just like to no why Bim went home called the cops and then went outside and stabbed Natasha? If she called the cops why did she not just wait for them to come and resolve the isuue. I think thats what makes her wrong in this whole situation she started off doing the right thing it's really to bad she should have just waited for the cops to arrive!

r.i.p natasha.
i feel bad for both families and my prayers are with them both, seeing natasha is gone, and bim's family is also missing her.
alot of things the media have been twisted around about this, and i know they dont want things to get out. but too many people are jumping to conclusions about this whole situation. my best friend is currently dating bims brother, and she's the cousin of natasha's friend who brought her into this. she was on the phone while this all went down. i feel that the other girls involved all need to be charged with something as well. they have been harassing bim for weeks, sending her texts about what they would do when they saw her, and other horrible things. i feel very sorry for natasha for fighting her friends battles, and getting herself in this situation. her friends should feel guilty, and i know they will have to live with that for the rest of thier lives.
bims brother did NOT hold natasha down. if this was the case she would have been stabbed more then once. my friend heard the whole fight, and natasha would not let any of this go. she kept screaming and yelling things to bim, and this is what caused her to snap.
although she could have went inside and called the cops, she chose this route. it's sad that someone died over something so dumb. i do hope that bim does not get charged with first degree murder, she was defending herself to an extent. if i was being threatned by females, and recieving hateful texts and followed home from work, in the heat of the moment i might have allowed myself to also grab a weapon. i don't condone what bim did, but i don't think that first degree murder is right either. yes she should be punished for her actions, and i truly believe that once the trial starts up, and everything is out in the open that her punishment will suit her crime.
you know you cant asume what someone feels or the actions people take,but if that girl really feared for her life she should of stayed in the house,untill the cops came. you know words are words and they cant kill you.thats the problem today someone calls you somthing and the next thing someones dead,these kids dont know you take a life no matter what you should be punished. there always sorry and wish the can take it back, but you cant give back life.speacilly over a guy. obvioulsy he was playing with both of them girls and now natasha is dead for her freind,any body would stick up for a freind ,dont say you wouldnt.bim kid is going to grow up wihtout a mom,so were the guy left,well he will have probally have another girl in acouple weeks and move on with his life like nothing happened.so is it worth it.unless you are really in fear of your life,i mean a gun to your head ect.you should really think of your actions, because its not worth it.now ones dead ones going probally spend the rest of her life behind bars..

look everyone is sittin here running they mouth i know for a fact that something had to have made bim snap because she would have never done that to anyone plus natasha ran at bim while bim had the knife in her hand i think bim had right and reason and i dont think bim should be locked up
are u crazy..yeah natasha went to her house and even thou it wasnt her battle it shows what a great friend she was
but bim really didnt have the right to take her life whether natasha ran at her or not that is not natasha's fault and bim shoulda never had the knife in her hand in the first place remember she went in her house to get it.....she obviously had plan for using it..and yeah i feel bad for bims son,,,but she has to face her consequences and if she goes free (which she wont there were witnesses) then that is crazy
i think u need to get checked how would u feel if that happened to one of ur sistas or mad close friends.....ur just stupid....& i'm in shock that u think bim should had a right...wow..i cant even tell u how mad you made me just now...but not ev=nuff to go stab u or nothin like ur little freind did

MURDER 1 RIP TASHA BABY wrote:
First off, im qoin to address the sitatuion with natasha love gonsalves, if you want to know what happened natasha was thrown in a terrible sitatuion that had nothing to do with her. Some SICK PHYSCO was involved as well but enough about the girl that doesnt deserve the respect of her name on my computer screen. natasha was a great kid.. so anyone that has to say something different to say needs to say a prayer and seriously just mind their own business. Natasha was loved so deeply and dearly, that "BIM" WHATEVER her name is she is an animal, and she doesn't deserve the respect from anyone and neither does her family or friends so as for the comment above mine - I DONT NEED TO ADDRESS IT BECAUSE NOT ONLY DO YOU NEED TO SEE PROFESSIONAL HELP FOR YOUR ANGER AND ATTITUDE BUT GOD WILL GET EVERYONE OF YOU BACK. As long as THE REAL PEOPLE who matter in this situation are sticking together and standing by the family, we can get through this. Natasha was a beautiful, talented, amazing and smart young female with an a bright future. For someone to think that what they did was okay YOUR OUT OF YOUR MIND AND I HOPE TO GOD ON APRIL 7TH "BIM" GETS CHARGED WITH FIRST DEGREE MURDER, and she is not allowed to see the light of day for THE REST OF HER LIFE. SHE WONT HAVE A CHOICE JUST LIKE NATASHA DIDNT.
if someone knows the truth about this you need to contact the proper authorties or at least have the decency to let the family know the truth.
REST IN PEACE - TASHA BABY - I LOVE YOU ALWAYS
AND MAMA YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ANYMORE, THESE PEOPLE WILL GET WHAT GOD HAS TO GIVE, NOW YOUR NOT IN PAIN AND YOU ARE NOW AT PEACE WITH YOURSELF AND THE LORD
RELEASE UP TO GOD WHAT YOUR HANDS CONTROL AND HE WILL RELEASE BACK WHAT HIS HANDS CONTROL.

i think its wrong for people to write false info on here. if they dont know nothing about natasha or unsure or something, they shouldnt say anything because the people who were there DO know EVERYTHING that went down. so people who dont know shit about natasha shut the fuck up! dont talk shit about her or about what happen. let her rest in peace.

none of you people know what your talking about if natasha went at bim with a knife and bim stabbed natasha with a knife then that would be self defense it doesnt count as self defense if only one person has a weapon and how did natasha jump at bim if she wanst even near the door bim obviously went at her if natasha was stabbed in the middle of the road so think logical idiots and stop trying to defend a murderer i feel bad for bims son because he has to grow up with out a mother she should have been smarter if she had time to go in the house to grab a knife then why didnt she just stay there and avoid it bims brother should of never told the girls to go to the house in the first place so grow up and stop the violence it obviously as all of us can see it gets us know were

First off, my sympathy for both familie's two mothers lost a child...and a son lost his mom... two families were destroyed one by death and another by the system...
Granted Natasha didnt have a weapon, but technically she was trespassing because they went to Bim's house without being invited. Natasha and Bim were fighting, last time I checked when you fight, it tends to move, so to say that bim charged at her because she was stabbed in the middle of the road is not quite accurate...they were fighting...they moved around and ended up in tragedy, maybe natasha shoulda been at home with her boyfriend rather than protecting a cowardly friend...death is not the answer and what bim did was totally messed up and will pay the consequences....and stop pinning the blame on her brother...if he had nething to do with it he would be locked up too dont u think... like damn... blame the pussies that brought her to her untimely death aka friends...it was more of them and then there was bim...why didnt they jump her ... once yall saw natasha fighting somebody shoulda said "tash chill this kerry fite, let kerry do wat she gotta do"... but no, they were spectators... they all too pussy to fight bim and they let tasha do it, so i guess when any of them got in trouble they called her? so now her life is gone...she aint have to die, that just goes to show you how ignorant some people are... her friends should get charged to accesory to murder...or reckless endangerment...or even inciting a riot...fuck that... without them instigating it, she would of never been on pepin street in the first place.
