This is one of the most horrible crimes any of us have ever heard of. I don't know if they get any worse than this. This seems like a crime against someone just because the person could get away with it. It kind of seems impersonal, as if to Luke Faulkner, that boy might just as well have been anybody who was helpless -- a baby? a grandmother? It seems so much like the Matthew Shepherd murder... who died just because some people didn't like something about him...
It is like Christ has been crucified again...and again... and again.
Poor Kelsey and anybody else who might have at one time had any kind of feelings for Faulkner. It seems like it's easier to rehabilitate a killer dog than a killer human. Kelsey, I am sure that you are right that lack of love is what made him so hateful, but it seems pretty clear that it's too late now. Who could hold any hope for this kind of monster?

Devin was a wounderful person and i think anyone involved should go down with lucas Yes there was only one person who killed devin but anyone with him was just as guilty because they left him there for two days what kind of sick people do that then take his phone and car so he couldnt call for help or drive for help those assholes took away one of my closest family members and i dont care if they were abused or not they took away something that would have amounted to more than they could ever be and in my book they lose cuz devin is in a better place doing great things and they arnt goin to find peace in this life or the next.
I agree 100%. They may not have held the hatchet and they may have been afraid.But to stand back and allow this to happen as they watched is the most cowardly thing I can imagine. To assist in covering it up is inconceivable and beyond dispute of the involvement and guilt of these other two SUSPECTS!!!

I did not know Devin well, but I did know him.I know what a loss our world has suffered as my family also have a special needs child. What these children lack in physical or intellectual capacities God more than makes up for in an immeasurable amount of pure love and compassion for others. They are called SPECIAL because aside from Jesus Christ they are truelly the greatest gift God has given us. These Paracites may have taken Devin before his time, but he will live on in all those he touched.

To Devin's family, there are no words to express the anger and the sadness I feel at the loss of Devin. I cannot put myself in your shoes as it is too painfull! Although Devin was taken from you in an unimaginable way, knowing him, loving him is a joy that most people in this messed up world will never experience.Devin sincerely was a little peice of Heaven on earth and you were blessed to be a part of his life as he was to be so loved by you.I beleive Devin is walking with God and has already caught the biggest fish immaginable, plays guitar like no one ever on earth. He is happy and at peice.You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

To Vood56: Thank you so much for your kind words.No one will ever know how much Devin meant to all of us who loved and cherished him.I have no idea how you came to meet Devin,but I'm so happy you saw in him what we already knew. My daughter is Devins mother and she is suffering tremendously at the loss of her son, our whole family is. To us Devin was a special miracle from God and he will be missed by many. Thank you again for your most beautiful words.

People come from all walks of life..some have easy lives..some have hard lives...Many Many MANY children all over the world came from broken homes..beat every day, verbally mentally physically or sexually abused EVERY SINGLE DAY...from the time they were just defenseless children...and some of these children grow up to be AMAZING people. People who we look up to, who we admire..and who we can only hope we would have the same inner strength to accept such challenges head on and create a better life for ourselves. I can see that obviously lucas was a very troubled boy, but no matter what it doesn't excuse or JUSTIFY in any way shape or form what he did to innocent Devin. There is no justification in any cold blooded murder. I'm troubled..I had abuse growing up as a kid and even into my late teens and adult years, and i have a lot of anger pent up, but that doesn't mean just because I didn't have a great childhood that i'm going to Kill someone because someone treated me badly growing up..how is that even justifiable. Lucas should go away for life...and get counseling in the process. But Kelsey, I understand where you are comming from..but don't defend his actions to be of understanding because there isn't any...what if it was your child he killed...would you be so quick to defend him then. If he was my relative no matter how much I loved him, what he did was purely EVIL and incredibly wrong.
No child should be subjected to abuse in any way, but unfortunately more often than most know...they are, but that doesn't mean they don't know whats right or wrong...he went to school, he knew the consequences..yet he took it upon himself to be bigger than life..and take one..

To the Resh family. I know no ones words can ever comfort such a TRAGIC loss. so incredibly sad and just baffling. so all we can do is Pray for you to someday, in someway to have peace and know that while devin was alive he lived his life everyday with love and passion and a great sense of humanity for all things living. I pray for Lucas to come to terms with the horrific crime he has commitited and hope that one day he will realize the hurt he inflicted upon so many. and I pray for the family of Devin, that they be strong and be able to celebrate a life that was WELL worth celebrating.

Parents are not to blame for this. We may be shaped by our upbringing, but we are not robots. we are not programed to commit horrible acts like the one we are focused on now. Lucas, for whatever reason, may have taken his anger out on Devin, but it was his choice. From what I gather, Lucas sounds like a uneducated, weed-idolizing, hillbilly, wanna-be bad ass. he couldn't control his mother, he chose a hard path, and now he has ended 2 lives. Devin's and his own. I grew up in wright county and I have always had a problem with the rotten families that are in every single town. as someone that didn't know either the victim or the murderer, I can say that Lucas, tho he may have had issues, should burn for what he did.

I have seen alot of pictures of devin and I have many friends that speak fondly of him. he sounds like a great guy. Lucas robbed the world the day he ended devins life. My heart goes out to all of your friends and family devin. R.I.P

Side note: That girl that was defending Lucas. I know he may be a friend or even a family member of yours, but trying to defend a man who murdered a innocent in the manner he did, deserves every ounce of justice. his best bet is to plead guilty and take his chances in jail. Cause if he gets out, he's not going to like his welcoming committee...
