it is very sad and strange I know the 17 yrs old, there are so many stories, hard to figure it out. does any one know what connect the two with the crime .. I live in California so I don't

no really, the police just picked two young boys who do not have any money so they can not afford a good lawyer and arrested them with no evidence what so ever and beat them until they got a confession. The TBI agent is in on it also, cause they get a toaster every time they arrest someone for murder. I forgot the Judge that signed the warrant to have the boys arrested must also be in on the frame job too cause why would he sign an arrest warrant with no evidence that the boys were even there.

you are all so stupid. Jeffry and Tommy are already confessing to the crime. Jeffry is saying tommy was boss, and is the main person, and tommy is saying jeffry did it. But both familys have good lawyers and have had to sell almost everything they have. These 2 boys wont get out of it. It wont matter who pulled the trigger, both were there, and it wont matter who burnt the home. Both were there. did one of them speak up before they arrested the first one. so fools say all you want. these good old boys are in over there heads. there families will loose all they have only to keep them from getting a death sentence. becuse they both are going to get a long time. this is not the first time they have cause a stir in our town. where in the hell is these kids daddy. they have caused us trouble for years. let these two little bastards rot. Let them steal from inmates and jailers, i am tired of them stopping over and my battery is missing the next morning, or my money, or whatever they put there hands on. if they had a daddy he should of put his input in years ago. why start now. maybe they will get lucky in prison. they are both nice looking young boys....maybe they will get someone to look after them.....

One of these is related to my momas uncle. The boy got dropped off when he was about 5. Mama ran off, and daddy remarried, no one wanted him. Mamas uncle is 84 and eccentric, married to a wicked old bitch who harped on him all the time. He did not have to go to school. Lied, stole all the time. Was never in trouble. Lived the life of a regular little hoodlum. He pulled so much on her uncle that he never would believe it anyway. Mama doesnt even go around them becuse of all of them. Says the women is crazy. And anyone around her will be tarnished. Makes you think who should be in jail. Maybe they have a cell the whole lot of them will fit in.

well if you know the 17 yrs old you would know his father died 2 yrs ago. and if they stole from you why did you let them come over to your house ? no need for name calling

I am so goddamn tired of people saying someone got into trouble cause of a bad family life as a child, we all make our own choices in life, if you want to break the law you will if you don't you won't. I did not know my parents much and was moved from foster home to foster home, i make $27,000 a year have my own apartment and never stole from anybody much less killed them, so stop blaming everyone except who is really responsable
