Sounds like everyone is choosing up sides. We've gotten at least three stories. First the deceased kid was breaking up a fight, then he was a wrestling bully that broke another kid's arm, and now a cop's kid is supposedly the bully. Does anybody know what REALLY happened?

Because a kid is dead, and we want to know what happened. Not talking about it isn't going to undo what's been done.

People please! Lane was my family. I already answered these questions. OSBI did get involved to make sure it was an accident, which it is. Lane was not being bullied nor was he being a bully. He was a kid messing around with another kid. It was a freak accident. They were rough housing and he hit his head on a concrete floor. It was all witnessed by another one of our family members, another child. This was not a murder. Please continue to Pray for our family and also for the other boys family. We are all going through a hard time.

Lanes mother, no relation to me, is not stable. She is distraught and being irrational. She might have made threats, doesnt surprise me, but I havent heard her say so. I have heard her openly put total blame on the other child. Which we all know isnt right.

CIC does take kids chged with assault, they only hold them max 24 hrs. Kids usually go there if the PD or SO can not keep them until a bed is found in Juvenile Detention Center.

This is soo sad. Accident or not the question I keep asking myself is where were the adults? I also can't believe that this is being seen as not that big of a deal. A child is dead. Why isn't this being talked about and people doing something different. I've heard things being said about it being a bullying incident say things like 'another bullying incident gone bad''another kid dead because of bullying' said so nonchalantly like we're so used to hearing about about it whether it's a kid killing themselves or another kid killing another kid. Now it's oh, they were just playing and it was an accident. Seriously! I play wrestles with my siblings and friends but never to he point where one of us got pushed down stairs. Of course one of my parents or another adult was around for control, and we were taught there's a proper place and time for every kind of play. When are adults going to start taking action whether you are a parent, teacher, youth leader , whatever stop waiting for someone else to do it.

You obviously do not know the whole story or even partial facts. Lane was not being bullied, infact he started the whole altercation. These boys were friends. They got into a scuffle, like 12-13 year olds do. No it's not appropiate but it happens. Lane put the other boy in a headlock, when the other boy was breaking free he pushed Lane backwards and his head hit a thinly covered concrete floor. The other boy did not physically pound his head into the floor or anything malicious as you'd like to think. It was an accident. As far as the adults, the children were waiting for them, they were released from their programs and they usually had a few minutes to play. Do you remember ever being escorted to and from everything? Especially at 12-13 years old? Didnt think so. No one is "nonchalantly" saying it was ok for what happened. It's not ok. It ended a boys life and tarnished the others. My family is hurting and trying to heal but moronic people spreading their personal "truth" to the story is not helping. Instead of running your mouths to each other, how about you just say a lil Prayer for my family and the 13 year olds family.

You call people morons, then ask for their prayers? Nice. Of course we will pray for all involved because it's the right thing to do, and not because of the sincere and humble way that you requested it.

First, as I said I've heard both accident and bullying situation. What I said is whether it was an accident or a bullying situation or even a fight it was an accident or a situation all together that could have been prevented. The point of my comment was that more is not being done. The fact that it happened is bad enough, the fact that it happened at a church function, is even worse. You are so right scuffles do happen as these r children and they make bad decisions. Yes at 12, 13, ecspecially at a church function we were always supervised. We weren't individually escorted but there was an adult present. I work with teenage kids everyday and have for more than 10 years, and at one time I was a teenager, so I can safely say this was not a sudden or unexpected thing. There were things going on before this particular incident that should have clued some adults in to maybe keep a better eye on these kids. There should've been an adult at least close enough to have stepped in and stopped. I've seen fights, been in a couple myself, they start with words then actions. My comment was expressing my frustrations that the adults we entrust our kids with r not doing more. As parents it's our job to teach our kids the proper way to act in all situations. I am upset that everyone is acting as if it's just a tragic accident and that's it. It's a tragedy that it happened but parents need to do more and so do he adults that are entrusted with our kids life. As a parent myself I take my responsibility to teach my kids right from wrong, no kids aren't perfect and make bad decisions but I am tired of adults whom are responsible for children when parents are not there, such as at school, in this case church, etc, not taking the responsibility they should be in supervising kids, or allowing things to go on because they don't want to get involved or whatever their reason is for not being there and stopping bad situations. I am disappointed that u as a family member of Lane as u portray urself to be, are not more upset that this 'little scuffle' ended the life of someone u cared about very much. You should be pushing for kids to be supervised better so that another family doesn't have to go through what you are. And I didn't say people were saying it was OK. But people are just shrugging it off as not that big of a deal, it's sad a kid died but sometimes those things happen. It should be motivating adults in it community and others to do more when it comes to teaching their kids, and other adults in kids life's to take action and take their responsibility more seriously.

Come on it doesn't matter who the parents are. You were not there to see any of it so you really don't know what happened. I send out prayers to both families. This will haunt them for the rest of their lives. What you should do is come up with ways so things like this don't ever happen again. I plan to sit down with both my kids and have a long talk with them.

The coroner has ruled this as a homicide. That doesn't sound like an accident to me.

Yes, it was ruled a homicide, but it could still be an accident. It doesn't automatically mean that the other boy KILLED him. All it means is that it wasn't an unpreventable death or suicide.

If you remotely knew the facts surrounding this death you would not even bring to light the possibility of it being a murder. Neither boys meant to cause such harm to each other. They were in a fight...at ages 13 and 14. Just like many of you. They did not seek out the death of one another.

I'm not "choosing sides" nor do I "know the families well" but I see the facts. The boy who lost his life, Lane, was a larger built kid...infact he was quite bigger then the boy that he fought with. He BROKE the other boys arm. Keep that in mind. The other boy did not kick Lane in the head, did not punch him repeatedly in the head, did not pound his head into stairs, did not do any of which you all would like to think. He was fighting back, JUST AS LANE WAS, and pushed Lane away. He fell back hitting his HEAD on the thinly padded CONCRETE FLOORING. This isn't the brutal slaying you are imaging it as.

Stop being so quick to judge by what you read. Get the FACTS then you can view it as you wish. Step back and realize that Lane was not the only victim. The other boy didnt lose his life but he has lost a lot of things. Especially living in a very small community.

Your screen name fits you perfectly. The definition of homicide is: the act of one human KILLING another. According to the coroner, this is a homicide. Therefore, the coroner has concluded that somebody KILLED somebody!!

Just because it's called a Homicide doesn't Mean he is guiltily of trying to mean-fully hurt the boy. They just call it that. I feel Sorry for both families You could never imagine having a fight at church would
Lead to someone's death. It was not planned & my heart goes out to
Both families. I know that neither family will live the same again.
