You had better regroup because there is no more children...there is a child (the little girl)...that should be removed from there care...I ask this once...Does anyone know if this guy she is with is the same one that she left and he jumped off the house and tried to kill himself.....If the DHS has failed and not took them out of the house when they should then whoever was suppose to investage her should be fired...this child may have still been alive if they had done there job if they was supose to be checking on her.

Because they are heartless drug abusing worthless pieces of crap and the only thing they are upset about is losing that part of their welfare benefits!

It needs to be kept going until they deciede if she was not taking care of the little boy and was not paying attention to him because she was high....and they lock her up....I guess they have to wait for the grand jury to convine and they will deciede....People that neglect their children does not deserve any peace....

Yes I do realize that, whether or not we reply they will still continue on with their "stories" and let's not forget their "resources" omg2- she is making sure everyone knows that she posted links to her "RESOURCES". She has lots and lots of time to make sure she researches this woman and makes sure throughout 5 of her posts in this forum that everyone knows she has links to back up what she says. LOL... could you say busy body??????
I find it hilarious that when anyone says anything in particular about keeping their mouth shut they assume i'm taking up for her. I'm not taking up for her, I am basically asking you just to shut up about her past and present life. Not because it bother's me, it doesn't affect me one bit, but it does bother me that no one seems to think of the consequences that this little girl will face once she enters school. I do feel that everything in this forum is disrespectful to her (sister), Josh and the truck driver. You have been on here saying all these things about the family but you couldn't wait to at least hear about what happened when the facts came out let alone until he was buried. I don't believe a damn thing that is posted on topix, it's all hearsay and lies. If any of you know 100% anything about her "habits" and you are so concerned for the little girls well-being then don't sit and TALK about it, for God's sake report them to the police. No one twisted my arm to read this but I have a right to tell anyone what I think just like the rest of you tell the world about everyone in Elizabethton.
Oh and "Just me" this is not toward you in anyway just the first paragraph i'm just responding to all of these hens posts.

I've said all along, I dont know them, any of their families, any of their friends, I wasn't there, I don't personally know anyone that was there, I don't know if she was/is on drugs.

But... I think it is terrible that it was such a preventable accident.

I feel awful for the truck driver.

And I will always stand behind what I said before, if my daughter had died in such a way, any way, for that matter, I KNOW I wouldn't be up for giving tv interviews.

Sorry, but if it had been one of my kids and someone tried to interview me within a few hours of the accident or the funeral, forgive me for saying this, but the reporter would be picking themselves up off the ground.I understand they are just doing their job, but that is what I would be doing. Protecting my family from the media feeding frenzy.

You assume I'm female? uh...... ok.

It took me sooooooooooooooo long to find the links to everything (3 minutes tops!) And only because one google search brings it ALL up. There are no positives or I would have gladly posted those also.

As far as being a busy body, I just read the news just like everyone else, if this is what a busy body is, then, I'm guessing that makes you one also. I also read the stock reports, I guess that makes me a stock broker, and I like to read the comics too, so I reckon that makes me a comedian as well! And once in a while, I read the obits, So I'm an undertaker too! The other day I read about someone in the classifieds selling a bedroom set, so I'm also a interior decorator! I never knew the AMAZING talents I possessed before! Thanks!

I would be glad to show you how to use google on your picture machine (computer) and you too can learn stuff and stop being ignorant.:)

A simple Google search done on a name resulted in arrest, mugshot and previous news story information (as recent as spring 2012). It takes mere seconds to find this. Why would anyone look up publicly available information and read past news stories? Maybe something seemed a bit odd after seeing those interviews and thinking that people might be sending money.

Exactly! Sending money to pay for a funeral that was paid for by the funeral home already. This thread does need to keep going as I feel as many people as possible need to be informed and not caught up in believing the lies of the mother, and sending money for........well we can all pretty much guess what its being used for..........and its not the paid for funeral. Our community is outraged, as am I, that those children were left in the care of such dispicable people, and as a result, one lost their life leaving only one child which needs to be taken for her own protection before its too late.

You need to shut up and be gone from this thread like you said you were in your post yesterday. None of us want to "cause trouble", we are simply outraged citizens who want people to be informed and not fooled. If they truly needed money for the funeral, then I would state just that, BUT THEY DON'T!!!! You're the one causing trouble so if all you're gonna do is post pointless threads and make yourself look stupid then stay out of here and go somewhere where you actually KNOW what the crap is going on!
