Jone Knapton was my ex-sister-in-law but the memory of her will never be forgotten. I believe my feelings of Jone is shared by anyone who ever came in contact with her -- that her mere presence brought with an energy all its own. She was smart and warm; generous and caring; and her sense of humor could always bring laughter to any situation. And to top it all off she was beautiful as well. My heart breaks for her daughter Nicole and all of her family and friends. The void she left can never be filled and there will be no peace until her murder is solved. I pray that anyone with information that can help police find her murderer will have the strength to come forward.

I wish someone just one person can come forward and Speak, Generally there are always 3 people ( more if more were directly involved) But there is the Murderer, the victim, the witness ( or the one person the the killer confided in) Please Come forward, I hate hearing about news like this. and No one seems to be helping. This family No matter if it takes ten, tweenty years will never have true peace with out justice.
Pray for the Family, Please! I don't know anyone Of these people or the familys, But I am helping they only way i know I can. By keeping this story inthe minds of people to bring back a memory, and Praying for them.
Everyone else can do the same By passing this Forum around

My heart and prayers go out to the family members and friends of Jone Knapton.
Be asured the killer or killers will be caught and when they are they will pay for what they have done. What one does comes back to haunt them many times over. Whats makes me feel even better is that not only will this person or these persons be haunted for their actions here on earth, but they are the ones who will have to anwser to the judge of all judges for their crimes. May the lord have mercy on their souls (NOT). May they ROT.
May GOD bless and be with her family and friends.
Also know I will do my part in letting people in Oregon know of this travisty, maybe thru all of our prayers the guilty will feel compelled to confess.

Excuse me "Heidi" exactly whos wife are you? This is my sister. If you are in any way related to the Knaptons, or Larry Knapton to be exact, how dare you or your family post. She would be alive if it were not for Larry. Oh and by the way if your innocent why would you plea the 5th, lawyer up have plastic surgery, gain moniterally, and your own daughter has an order of protection. Everyone know who killed Jone and dont ever think about posting again.

I am sorry you feel that way. But we loved Jone to, and I wont stop posting. I want to see the murderer fry for what that person has done, just as bad as you. I pray for Gods healing hands to be upon us all, through this very very rough time. Only God can get us through this. May we all feel his loving arms around us, and know he's always with us. Thank You my LORD and SAVIOR for getting us all through this very hard time. Lift all of Jones family up in their time of need. And let us all feel your love.

I just wanted to say that Nicole is my best friend in the whole world and all of this is so unfair to her. She is the most amazing person i have ever meet. Her mom was her best friend and I just wish someone would take that evil man to jail and take him away and not let him get all that money he is getting from the murder and give it to the one person who deserves to get it. why should he get paid for murdering her? Her daughter and the people who loved her mom deserve justice and exspecially deserve to not see him get paid for the crime he committed. The people fighting for this case to get solved i give you props. dont give up! the lord will not let him go away unpunished. keep fighting and dont give up a way will be found to prove all of this, like you said there is no perfect murder. i pray for justice for nicole and for all of you all the time. I just wish I could have meet this amazing woman before she was so untimely and violently taken.

Come on, this is taking to long. Just bust the SON OF B________ THAT KILLED JONE: Hes the one that deserves to die the way he killed her. Just being honest, and saying what everyone is thinking. The scum does NOT have the right to walk on this earth. It just doesn't make any sense that someone so loving, kind, and would stop what she was doing just to help anyone in need, be takin away from all of us, really sucks. But hes still free? Somethings wrong with this picture.(U no who u are, rought in HELL)and so do we.And most of all so does GOD, HE SEES ALL.

Besides this discussion, all the facts on the web seem to be outdated.

What's the latest on Jone's case?

What's the latest on Larry?
Is he still in jail?
What became of the child porn charges?

I am like Dave. What's going on with Jone's case? I ran across this forum trying to find any updated information on her case and found nothing. I worked with Jone and we became friends and whenever I was in town, we got together to fellowship. I also pray for the family and this case be solved soon. Nicole is a product of both the Fanning's and Knapton's and it's disturbing to see the tension between the two families. Lord please help in the healing of these families.

Hey I have missed you and wondered how to get a hold of you. I have wanted to talk to you about my mother.

Nothing is new with the case and nothing is being done to solve it anymore. I am starting to think that it will never be solved and I can't move on emotionally. I feel that I will live with this pain forever. Not only did I lose my parents, but I lost my life as I knew it, and no siblings to endure this hardship with. However, I have finished school and earned my Bachelors of Science in Apparel Design. I am getting married soon and trying to over come this difficult test. I pray everyday that justice will be served hope that paitents and faith pay off.

How do I get in touch with you, Nicole? I would like to talk to you as well. I am proud that you are continuing with your life. I know that it is hard, but you must keep the faith that everything will come to light. However, you cannot dwell on it because it will eat you alive and I am sure Jone wants you live your life to fullist. Let go and let "GOD".

More power to you Nicole for enduring such a hardship and moving on. I believe I felt some pain (mental abuse) your mom endured, if but even for a little bit of time. It was good quickly parting ways with the other side of the party. I did my lawful-abiding duty. I too pray that someday....
