I will voice my opion when ever i want to thats what this colunm is for..Foe one thing i dont think you helped to much from CO,This boy has had issues you know that as well as i do..I believe that kids learn what they live,and it shows.The family knows he had problems the neighbors that were on tv know he had problems,fact..Your right he will get what he has coming to him, the man upstairs is the only one he has to answer too..and again those guns were not locked up untill he cam back home in november...my thought was they should of been so JT could not be curious with them as kids do ..

<quoted text> You have know clue waht we have done and tried to do for Colton! Unless you know the true facts, that's when you can voice your opinon. The guns were always locked up!! Not just because of Colton but, because we didn't want them stolen.........and as far as the victims family, they are still our friends and we are victims too! People that have hearts and common sense would realize that it's not our fault what Colton did. Colton will pay for what he has done and my family will see to that!

"family member of Colton" I bet you haven't slept well since this horrible crime happened, I know I wouldn't. It is sad to say, but I know this had to change the dynamics of your family. I hope when he is put away for the rest of his life (hopefully). That you will then be at peace knowing that he is no longer on the streets and he can't hurt anyone else. I guess we'll never truly understand what goes through the mind of a killer, or else we would try to fix it.

My, oh, my, people! A heart-breaking story results in slander, blame, condemnation, and fictional portrayal of the horrid event.

Ethel was a cordial, lovely person. My mother had a conversation with her the previous week. My mother was shocked to hear about this sudden death of such a dear person.

Details are not being printed. Ethel's family deserves the privacy, and Colton's family needn't be ridiculed for the CHOICE that he made. He deserves punishment and will hopefully receive more than our modern motel incarceration.

The posted comment reply about Ethel residing alone was common sense. Most of my relatives are elderly but not bedridden or insane. They have chosen independence as long as energy promotes it. Because someone becomes widowed does not mean their life ends. The trespasser violated the common law of life. If she wasn't prepared for a thief, perhaps she couldn't react accordingly.

I extend my sympathy to the family.
