If this act was done accidently, then it is understandable. However, if this was done with intent, by all means punishment should incur. Since I am not aware of all the facts, I will hope the autopsy will reveal them. She was my childhood friend. Are any facts known at this time?

I have been talking to Mclendons wife online for approx 2 or 3 years now. She was a very sweet lady and will be missed dearly. I know 3 days ago she was talking about her husband being out of town and how excited she was that he was coming home and how much she missed him. I dont know exactly what the situation was, but murder is not the way to resolve things. My prayers and thoughts go out to her family. Even though this is a tragedy she is in a much better place. I just hope her husband get whats coming to him. Murder was not the answer at all!!

FOR ANGIE:

You can shed tears that she is gone,
or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all she's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see her,
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her only that she is gone,
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what she'd want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

Angie McClendon was an online friend who always had a kind word for me, no matter what kind of day she was having. In real life nobody is perfect, and as she accepted me, and I did the same for her.
As a moderator for an online group, I received these replies about Angie's death after I posted notice of it. I edited out the names for safety purposes, and so the people who wrote them couldn't be contacted. You can decide for yourself what kind of person she was, but no matter what she did she was still human and had a heart of gold for people who needed a kind word.
If you did get to see what she was like on the inside you'll know this: She was special to very many people.
I've also had numerous people contact me in other ways who were saddened and shocked by this ordeal.

I will send them in several posts following this one because I really believe Angie's friends and family need to see these kind words about her.

Thanks so much for letting (anonymous) and me know about Angie; I'm still in shock over what happened. It is a very sad day for us. She is going to be missed greatly in the room; I just regret that I didn't get to meet her personally. By this tragic incident happening, I've learned to not take things for granted and that life is too dang short. When you hear of arrangements please let us know. Our sympathy and love to you are her family and close friends,(anonymous)

so sad always be miss in our heart's we always love you angie ):
( She Walks in Beauty )
She Walks in Beauty ,like the night of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that's best of dark and bright Meet in her Aspect and her eye's Thus mellow'd to that tender light Which heaven to gaudy day denies. One Shade the more,one ray the less , Had half impair'd the nameless grace Which waves in every raven tress, or softy lightens o'er her face; Where thought serenely sweet express How pure, how dear their dwelling- place. And on that cheek, and o'er that brow, so soft, that so calm, yet eloquent,The smiles that win, the tints that grow, But tell of days in goodness spent, A mind at peace with all below A heart whose love is innocent!
in memory of Angie RIP
Another Sweet ANGEL LEFT US AND WENT TO HEAVEN GOD BLESS YOU ANGIE & Family YOU WILL ALWAYS BE MISSD AND BE IN YOUR HEART'S FOREVERY I LOVE YOU GF LOVE YA ALWAYS (anonymous)):CRY"S DEEPLY IN HEART !

talk about rose colored glasses!I knew the woman personally, and i can tell you with out a doubt, she was excellent at pulling the wool over peoples eyes.she ran around on her husband for years, and would go out of the area or some seedy bar to do it.
she also had a bad habit of liking drugs.
randy will never get a fair trial in gautier or jackson county due to the fact that she slept with most of the DA's office and judges.people need to step forward and let them know the truth about her.
by the way to you "online friends" she was a master of multiple chat windows.she would be sitting there being all nice to people in one window and talkin trash about them at the same time in another.i dont think i need to mention the cybersex.

Then Divorce should have been the option...not death. I am trying to be objective to the situation. No one is perfect, yet if an unhealthy relationship ceases to be, it is not one of us who should cease to be.

Did you here of these things or actually see them? Murder is murder. So what about the truth? Can you honestly say that you haven't done anything wrong in your life? Or are you being fueled by rumor? I do hope justice prevails, but isn't justice against murder? Morality is an entirely different issue. Each individual has a different perspective on their morals.

Now you are worried about fairness? Even "IF" that is true, since when does that account for or excuse murder? As a retired law enforcement officer he has seen all sorts of dometic incidents and knows how they affect ALL parties for years top come. As a "Corrections Officer" he is used to bossing people around and got used to being in control of the inmates lives totally, and did not have the self-control to know the difference between free civilians and inmates. I do too hope the trial is moved away from the area, how many buddies does he have giving him special treatment in there? I am sure it is different from what anyone else would get!

i didnt know angie personally but ive heard too many good things about her for them all to be lies weve lost too many good people in this world already if we as a society are to survive then we all must be govern by laws that are to be applied to us all and i hope that just because her husband was in law enforcement that if he is guilty then he gets prosecuted to the full extent and may god have mercy on his soul [ may angie rest in peace in gods loving embrace]
