Two men charged in Halifax River death; girlfriend of victim not being charged

There are 32 comments on the The Orlando Sentinel story from Dec 15, 2007, titled Two men charged in Halifax River death; girlfriend of victim not being charged. In it, The Orlando Sentinel reports that:

Shelley Hackett, the 32-year-old girlfriend of a man whose dead body was found in Halifax River Thursday, was found late Friday night by Daytona Beach police officers and has been cleared of any involvement in the murder of her boyfriend, 32-year-old David Sanders.

Police were looking to question Hackett in the death, but clues lead police Saturday morning to two men -- Barry Gallagher, 29, and David Marrow, 28 -- who have been charged with first degree murder.

A unidentified woman who witnessed Gallagher and Marrow beat Sanders to death, told investigators the men then dumped Sander's body at Halifax River, the Volusia County Sheriff's Office said. Read more

I dont know why you treat me so bad.
Think of all the things we could have had.
Love is an ocean that I cant forget. I havent seen the worst of it yet. Take me to the river, drop me in the water.
Take me to the river, dip me in the water.
Washing me down, washing me down.

I am Barrys cousin and I lived with him and his mother when I was 4 years old. My mother was his mothers sister. I have to say that I experienced horrible things living there and was molested by him several times. I am 25 and still dealing with this.I love his sisters and so I wont say anything that will upset them but I will say this....What he did was a horrible thing and I wont dispute that. He is my family though and I want to say that he deserves to be behind bars for the rest of his life but I do not believe in the death penalty. I dont know who any of u are but I am his family and I know first hand. My prayers are with the family of the one that was lost.

Daytona Beach has a cruel way of sucking you in... the only Barry I know is the one that got his dick hard watching my ass beat as well as David's. Barry murdered my friend. Dont get it twisted. Your friend is a scumbag. Maybe he changed from when you knew him, but he did kill my friend. It may have been a case of the drug did him, but it was Barry dont get it confused. Your "daddy" is a killer... no lie.

I am so sorry for your physical violations.. I only knew him for a couple days but I knew his presence was bad. God bless you. There is nothing else I can say that will make it better.

I am his daughter, and I am 18 now. Those previous comments claiming to be me were not. My dad is indeed a murderer and I would never defend that ever. I have never lived with my "stepmom" for I have never had one, and not a "step-gma". I have commented previously on here, but for whatever reason my comment is no longer on here. I want you all to know I am highly ashamed and have been been for several years, before he even got arrested. He is a voilent person, and is more than capable of murdering people. Anyone who defends him does not truly know him, and how sick in the head he actually is. Please no one defend him, he has admitted it to me before that it is true. Whoever was claiming to be me, has no life and has no idea who I actually am, and has probably never even met me. I have never lived with him, or anyone who associated with him besides my mother.
