He did it, hell he bragged about it. Fry him, dont give him the courtesy of a needle, he didnt give Jill that option.

Shouldn't the Star utilize "expletive deleted" instead of the actual word in the transcript from the potential Myers confession?? Please??

This guy sounds like a real jerk, but will the prosecution be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he caused her death? It's a high standard, and I hope they have enough.

You know this is 6 years running and I feel as if everyone needs to know of what kind of cruel and indecent people we have amoung us. Meg feels as the star should soften of the words used from Myers confession. I gaurantee you that the person responsible didn t soften up the torture that Jill had to face before her death. NO offense but sadly its reality and people need be aware of the horrible things that go on in this world and not be so nieve to it. I was one of the potential jurers that was going to be on this trial and was one of the last 3 standing before the 15 were chosen. I feel very strong about this case and if Myers isnt the actual one for the cause of death to Jill Berhman....I hope to god the responsible person will be found guilty and sentenced accordingly,

Can John Myers be that stupid to make those comments? He obviously is stupid enough to commit a crime this heinous. Just another piece of white trash who will spend the rest of his life behind bars - hopefully.
this is horrible

If Myers is guilty, he certainly should be punished to the letter of the law--by the courts, not by the media or by public opinion fueled by the media. The problem is that this guy seems to heve been found guilty by the Star and the TV media.

But that's not the way our system works.

Let's all face it: this trial is getting far too much media attention.

If Behrman's father weren't a bigwig at IU--and the Star & local TV stations weren't so IU topheavy--this story would have become one day's news like so many other similar stories have over the years when the family wasn't so important.

Let's have the same treatment for this story that others get. And that's not headlines day after day when there's nothing headline worthy.

I agree with you the money and infulence in this case is alot but we do have people who are just here to find out nothing but the truth..to bad the AMBER Alert wasnt noticed as much as this case maybe they would have found the mother and father that murdered a Kentucky woman with there baby...they were possably headed for Indiana where they have family...Good luck to all and have an open mind till the end of this case...Jill hasnt been forgoten
