he might be your "boy" but do you really think he would confess if he didn't kill amy? if you were innocent, wouldn't you be fighting tooth and nail to prove just that? i know it's hard to believe your friend would be capable of something so horrible, but get used to it kid. he did it, he confessed, and now he's going to pay the price for taking that child's life.

you can still be his friend, you can still support him. visit him in prison, send him letters and care packages, do whatever you need to do...but he is guilty. there's no debate. it came from his own mouth.

There is info. in the Todd County Standard this week about the murder, his confession and also info. from the autopsy report. If you read the extent of the injuries that this poor girl suffered it will make you sick. I can't even begin to imagine what the last minutes of her life must have been like at the hands of this person who she loved so much. If you ever knew Amy, you knew she thought the world of Garrett.

When he pleaded guilty recently he calmly stated that he went to get the weapon and came back and hit her with it and kept hitting her until she was dead. Even if the earlier confession is thrown out somehow, this should be sufficient to convict him even if he does win an appeal. He showed no remorse, no emotion, just stated the facts. Scary.

There has been much speculation about the home life that Amy had. She always seemed so happy and carefree. She was always dressed really cute and had a sparkle in her eye. She loved her friends and her family. After she is gone you find out that she would come to school with a moldy lunch box with a piece of bread for lunch or a few crackers. Pictures were on FB of the parents and brothers on vacation in Hawaii and other places- Amy was never included in the trips it would appear from all the pictures that were posted. If she their adopted sister and lived with them it seems odd that she was excluded from family trips. There has been lots of speculation about reports with child protective services. If there is nothing to hide why would the family have been so protective of the information? Granted, you don't want to air your business, but if you are trying to clear your child of murdering a family member you would think you would want all the supporting evidence of a loving family that you could show.

She was shoveling rocks in the driveway in very cold temperatures in the rain as punishment for stealing food at school that day. I don't believe a 9 year old would steal food if they were being fed properly. It also seems strange punishment to put a child outside in freezing cold rain to shovel rocks. The truth about what happened that lead up to that moment when Garrett snapped and went to get the weapon may never be known. You can't help but wonder if he took the deal to save family details coming out or exactly what the situation was.

It's a heartbreaking situation and two young lives were lost that night. Amy is in a better place and regardless of what her home life here may or may not have been, she is at peace now.

It is sad that when telling what happened there was no emotion, no regret, no tears, no apologies, no wishing he could go back to that night and change things. No, I snapped and am sorry it happened. Nothing showing he would do anything differently, just stating the facts. He went to get the weapon, came back and killed her. He had the time walking there and back to think about what he was doing and kept going. After he has done this he goes and cleans up and plays video games then pretends to help look for her?

Prison isn't good enough for someone this callous and cold.

I think Garrett needs to be released to the custody of any parent who lost their child to a dumbass like him. Any parent who has had their child taken from them. He doesn't need the luxury of a jail cell. He needs a nice slow painful beating with a hydralic jack handle like he did poor Amy. But I also believe his whole family needs it also. Mom, Dad and brother all seem to have mental issues that needs to be fixed. Its so sad that a sweet beautiful little girl was placed into the hands of a animals like these people. And Kims response was if Amy was gonna act like dog she was gonna be treated like one. She needs to be knocked into REALITY. I feel sorry for all the kids in the world who are in the same place as Amy being abused and no one listens and persues anything. It breaks my heart that there are so many sweet innocent children in this world that just wants a nice loving home and family but gets stuck in a place where they aren't wanted. I know I would love to have a chance do punishment to Garrett and I have never lost a child. But I would do it for the ones who have.

The more that comes out about this event, the more I see the parents of Garrett need to be charged also. They are animals also, and deserve to be punished for child abuse, that led up to this tragic event.6238

I agree with this very much. No child should be placed with a family that abuses them in such a way. It makes me even more sad to think of all the couples who can't have kids of their own that would provide loving homes to children like Amy if only given the chance.

see here is the thing as ive read through all this i can honestly tell that none of yall know him or his family. yall only know what u hear from the papers and the news... i spent over 5 years of my life with garrett and not once had he ever touched amy in any way.. he loved her more than you could ever imagine.. I have made Garrett madder than anyone has ever been able to make him but even when he was at his snapping point with me he could hit me garrett didnt have it in him to physically cause pain to any female. I know this for a fact. garrett has always been the type to take the fall for someone that he knew couldnt handle the outcome. but do any of you want to listen to the people who actually knew him.. of course not because yall are just here to assume you know everything when honestly not a one of you know a damn thing. when i watched him confess to this i fully believed with everything i have in me that he didnt do it still. tell me this when the person who loved him more than anything in the world and could tell when he is not being honest, i am the world best at reading him, but do any of you care no because yall are not emotionally attached to this family. amy was like my sister i hate it that this has happened it kills me that someone did this but i willl never believe he had done this. I know garrett better than anyone even his own parents and that has to mean something.. and i can say that alot of things you read in the paper isnt true because i know for a fact that they had not made her go get clean clothes when she would wet her pants. that right there is total bullshit!!! None of you have to believe a word i say but unless you had been in their lifes you dont know how this family was.. so why dnt you stop running your mouths about it and re think all of it and see where ur heart takes you now!

So Garrett didn't kill her, he's a dumbass that took the blame for who? You know so much, who do you think committed this horrible crime. I call you full of crap.

Someone you don't know? You came to this conclusion after getting on a public thread with your rantings.lol I don't know you or Garrett, but I know this...he admitted to this murder, so he either did it, or he's a mighty nice guy to take this punishment for someone else, and sit in prison for as long as he's gonna sit. Wait a minute...he could be a total dumbass also! To be quite honest, I'm glad I don't know him, or you.

Ashley you can know someone your whole life but everyone has a secret side to them trust me! I dont see why someone would take the blame for something they didnt do and it costs them their whole life I mean why would you do that? Im not sure if the boy did it or not I dont know I wasnt there but God knows and if he did do it then he will be punished but if not then he wont. Im not trying to hurt you or be mean but people only show the side they want too you just have to be really careful when it comes to getting to know people.
