I know Michael Greenwell personally & I know that he's a kind and loving human being. I don't know first hand what happened, but I guarantee that drugs & alcohol played a major roll in this. I also heard that this Brent guy is known for starting problems and provoking situations, getting in people's faces. Again, I don't know what happened, or what Michael could have been thinking, but I do know that he wasn't thinking on this particular night. My prayers are with him and his family as well as the gentleman that was killed. I hope that he didn't suffer too awefully or feel too much pain. It isn't hard to hurt someone critically when hitting them in the head. One wrong move & it's lights out!

Mike broke up with his g/f. She brought a male friend to a party with her. They killed him, put him in the back of a truck, took him to the woods and set him and the truck on fire. The truck was found at 2:30 am by police. At 4:30 am the truck was reported stolen.
The two have been arrested. The people at the party are being investigated because no one called the police during the fight and murder of Mike.
The wake was last nite for him.
Those are the facts of what happened.

Sounds like it's time to get the needle ready in the prison for Mikey and his girl.
No need to keep scum like that around society.

Was Dave and them over at that party too? Are you talking about that Sara girl that Mike had been seeing on and off? IDK but Mike is in deep shit either way...I don't know why he would let shit get to him like that, or why that stupid girl would flaunt another man in his face either. Unreal. How do you know what happened so well?

You don't even know what happened, and besides, you obviously didn't read the response to my post earlier in the week. The girl didn't beat the dude in the head. According to another post, Mike's ex g/f brought some dude with her to a party where Mike was just after they broke up, flaunting him in her face. This dude, from what people are telling me is a dude who starts crap and gets in people's faces and is in fights all the time. That's no excuse for Mike to beat him to death with a chunk of wood or whatever, but as far as I can tell, the girl had nothing to do with it, other than being the tramp she is.

I know most of what went on at the party on that night because I know two of the people who were there and witnessed the whole thing.
And it was his ex that brought Mike to the party just to start shit.
I am not trying to say that Nikki is wrong , I am just stating the facts.

You mean "Brent" right? Mike's ex brought Brent to the party just to start shit? Yeah, i can see him getting pissed if it was a fresh break up.

Jonathan, I'm so sorry for your loss. I can't imagine what you and your family are going through. There is no reason why any of this should have happened. I know Mike and it scares me to think that he could have done something to my family. His anger is why we no longer associate with him.

Okay - Maybe all of you need to go to the police station and get your facts straight before you come online and start throwing names around. First, Michael broght Amy Durry Kennedy (Brent's ex-girlfriend, she was the one involved) to the party NOT Michael's ex girlfriend. Second, Michael's ex-girlfriend (notice the EX)wasn't even in town when this happend, cause if she was and she was there this would of never happened. Now here is all the truth that you need to know about Michaels ex girlfriend. Waiting bitting my nails for your response!!

I'm Brents younger brother and I'm still trying to figure out how this could have happened! I think about him just about every minute I'm awake and dream about him , but I will never have an oppurtunity to- hug,shake hands,joke around,share childhood memories,jam tunes,hear his voice or laughter,have a "brewsky",throw a frisbee, I could go on and on.My only concern for Brent is that anyone involved in his horrible murder is prosecuted to the maximum! I will never forgive anyone involved and I hope they rot in HELL! RIP BRO

FIRST OFF CONDOLENCES TO BRENTS FAMILY. NO LIFE DESERVES TO BE TAKEN, IT IS TOO PRECIOUS. SECOND OFF IM MIKE GREENWELLS BLOOD. I KNOW HIM BETTER THAN ANY OF YOU ON HERE COMBINED. HE IS A GOOD PERSON. A HUMAN THAT MAKES MISTAKES. HE IS NOT AN ANIMAL. THE SITUATION WAS A RESULT OF AN OUT-OF-CONTROL ADDICTION, AND ANIMOSITY. IM NOT MAKING EXCUSES FOR MY BROTHER, BUT IM UNDERSTANDING OF THE SITUATION. PEOPLE BEFORE YOU POST REALIZE YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW THE TRUTH AND BE MAKING A FOOL OF YOURSELF.
