you can call my uncle a "piece of shit" if you would like to but honestly- NO ONE knows what happened that night and until both sides of the stories are told then no one needs to sit here and judge anyone. he will have to live with this for the rest of his life and not everyone is perfect. it's sad that it came down to something like this when it could of been prevented but nothing can change what has happened.. I have prayed every night since this happen and I can't even start to feel the pain this family is feeling. this is a very sad situation and all we can do now is pray.

Wow I really can't believe this I haven't seen her in almost 2 years, and next thing I know she's gone. I look on te internet trying to get some facts and this website comes up, all I see are people being so dirty, mean and straight up jerks. Thats just ridiculous, a girl is dead, gone, no longer here with us and all people can say is that she deserved it. Ok she might have been bad off here lately and yea she did drugs, but man she's my cousin close cousin I've been with here since I wad a baby, know a lot about the girl, yea we went our separate ways were both real bad off at one point but regardless noone EVER deserves to get their head blown off. That's just insane.... All yall need to do is keep her family in your prayers stop bad mouthing her, she is gone now you talking about her will do nothing ...

eric needs to spend the rest of his life in prision....kenda needs to spend at least 10 years cause if she dont get some time out of this she will be in trouble again. Remember her brother Brandon committed sucide about 6 years ago... she is scared for life not matter what happens and if she aint in jail not telling what will happen next

I went to court with Patricia 3 yrs ago cause i saw she was a good mother and she was so clean i wouldn't have been afraid to eat of her floors. She ia gone now and no one has the right to talk about her now and i hope her mom realizes what she and eric has done!!!!!!
Amen to that, Darlene. I hope these peices of trash know what they have done. Yes, if her mom had been any kind of mother at all, it would not have happened that way.

I am reminded why I left Gainesboro thanks to some of these comments. Just let this go for the sake of our family please. Its over and done, let us deal with it. We don't want to be reminded of what happened. I loved my sister very much, and I loved Eric like he was my own father. What he did was unnecessary, but no one can't change what has already happened. Both of them had problems, but absolutely none of you can say that you don't have them either. Have some respect for our family please. Thank you to the people who have respect though.

p.s. This site is shit and isn't good for anything except gossip. Grow up.

I knew her. I knew her story from the time she was little. Again, he shot her. He killed her. Her little boy will never know his mother because a white trash peice of shit killed her. I hope both him and her mother are happy now.

What most people don't realize is there's a lot of things wouldn't happen around here if drugs wasn't involved. This poor family its really sad that it came to that.

I don't know this family but there isn't a person alive that doesn't have a breaking point and when you reach that point something bad always happens and you can't ever take it back.

I've lived here more than 50 years and its like a broken record over and over again how many kids have ruined there life over drugs and it'll never stop because of the money

He is still in jail. And will be for a long time I would say. He entered a quilty plea on Thursday and has another court date on the 28th.

I have known Eric my entire life and love him like he is family. I haven't known Mitsie as long, but have known her for 10+ years. I think that the fact that this happened has been a shock to everyone.

I know less about Mitsie, but chaos and problems have been a part of Eric's family life for a long, long time. First Kim and how toxic they were for each other (I knew and loved Kim too) and then losing Brandon. I have cried and felt heart broken with that family many times.

I didn't know Trish well, only saw here a few times at the house, but I firmly believe that killing someone is never the way to solve your problem or theirs.

Kendra has been like a baby sister to me for a long time and I have hated seeing the way things have been going in her life the last few years. I saw the pain in Eric's eyes when he talked about what she was doing and where she was. I know he felt guilty for part of that and I know that he is not proud of the way this situation ended.

My stomach was in knots for all of them when I heard what had happened.

I am pray for comfort for Mitsie and Jacob and the boys. I pray for peace for Trish. I pray for forgiveness for Eric. I pray for hope and understanding for Kendra.

First let me start by saying that regardless of what has happened in this family. Everyone involved is heartbroken. I love Eric and I have since the day that I met him when he was dating a family member of mine. He would give anyone the shirt off his back. I realize that he has committed a horrible crime, but no one can say that they are perfect. Eric will face judgement the day that he is supposed to.
Trevor let me say that it takes a person with many guts to come onto this website after facing such a horrible tragedy. I am truly sorry for your lose. I have not been around your family much, but I have met your mother several times when I would see Eric out. I do not think that anyone deserves to face a night like your family has faced. It is so easy for everyone to set and pass judgement, but your family and Eric is the only one's who knows exactly what happened.
My heart has been deeply saddened by all of this. I really tried to help Kendra, and god knows I love her, but she does have many problems, and yes Eric was heartbroken with the way that things turned out for her. He went through hell and back during the time that he has been on this Earth, and now he will face all of the mistakes he has made when it is time. Please people let this family deal with this tragedy, and get passed it.
RIP Trish and may this family be in everyone's prayers.
