My heart goes out to the family of James and his children.I agree with you Tennessee, they should be put to death with no trial.All of them! This was just a senseless act or torture and murder.All of them were in their minds or they would not have planned how to "minimize the evidence". May God be with the family of James at this time.

I agree, those that did this to the poor young Father who had his whole life in front of him do not deserve to live. I hope our law and courts will see this. There is a special place in Hell for anyone that can hurt a person in this way. So sorry to James's family.

I live close by both small towns involved, and know of some of the listed names of kidnappers, total trash. Lethal injection is to kind, beat them for awhile and wrap a trash bag around their heads. Probably a bunch of whacked out meth heads. My prayers and condolences for the McNeely family.

I live in Vandalia MO and my house is about 1/4 mile from where James was found. The house in Laddonia where the murder took place is right behind the house where I use to live. I have been following this case pretty close and I have not heard anything about James McNeely having any kids. He was only 20 so that does surprise me. Only thing being reported here is he was picked up by Harvey in California hitchhiking and that he was from Ohio. Any other info would be appreciated.
Very sorry for your loss. Nothing like this has happened around here in 40 years.

I actually went to school with this boy and thought of him as a friend when I first moved out to the small town. I quickly learned he was not one to make friends with, and now i can understand why. Micheal has also been in prison before for raping his own sister.

Sadly one of the men involved is my uncle and people of Vandaia and surrounding cities need to wake up and realize what a HUGE drug problem there is and has been for a VERY long time!! Hopefully now that some outside law inforcement is involved something can be done to clean it up! As for the men involved, they need to be held accountable for what they did. It will just happen again if they don't.

I am a cousin of Angie's I grew up with her and used to play with her as a child. I know that she lived a very rough life the last 15 years or so. I do not condone what they have done to this young man. However I have many more questions. To many things do not add up for me. I truely believe that drugs and money were involved all the way around with the victom and the accused. Why would u get in a truck and head across america with strangers?? Why would u want to p/u a stranger?? How was one 20 yr old male going to harm my cousins family? It just doesn't make sense. Many involved have been to many events that I have taken part in for example birthdays. These indiv. put on a show that all is ok. I have heard that there is a drug prob. in these small towns and have known for years and heard about family members who live there with these prob. We need to wrap our arms around these towns and start an intervention. Senseless deaths need to stop and the drugs have got to stop taking hold. I am praying for everyone involved. James is already in gods arms and I am praying for the truth to come out and just to take place for all. I have to pray for my cousin because she is family. I don't have to condone what happen but I do want to pray for her soul. God have mercy on all. Please stop the violence and remember that once it is done it is perminant and can not be taken back. My prayers go out to all the families involved everyone who knows these individuals are victoms of this senseless act of violence. My heart is hurting for all involved please say prayers

He did, he had 3 kids, and he used to show me pictures every day. I lived with him the whole summer, 3 months, he was my best friend, we were all like family. Beau, is such a good guy. How these people can do this, is completely beyond me. He used to use my phone to check up on his kids, he loved them all so much. Now they don't get to know who he really is. The people who did this, I can't wait for their Karma to catch up to them. He didn't deserve this. He didn't deserve this at all.
Beau, I hope you're doing good up there sweetheart.
I miss you like crazy & I love you.
I'll always be your Jojo<3

I agree and you are on the right track.How about considering trying to start something? That's what one man in our community did after a bunch of kids almost OD'd on HEROIN,old drug from the 60's making a comeback.

Take a look and think about it,then,DO IT.
