I completely agree jajjsd, if you purposefully take a life you should lose yours. Especially to these men who think they can get away with killing their wife.

What do you expect from a bunch of rural allegan folk. They don't know any better. Besides they are all made even dumber from all of the chemicals the local pharmaceutical company dumps down the drain. Trust me, that is where they have us put most of it rather than the hazardous waste drum. DON'T DRINK THE WATER. Why do you think that 99% of the people who work in the lab do not live in allegan.

I cannot wrap my mind around what was going thru these peoples' minds as they plotted this; it is an evil I will never be able to understand

you must be another lug nut who has fallen off the turn-up truck... what does living in allegan have to do with why Trot Tyo was killed?

i think these 2 losers got exactly what they deserve. life without parole. the only thing missing is a picture of Troy Tyo painted on their cell walls. it could serve as a daily reminder of why they will never walk out side a razor wired fence again.

um excuse me just because they may live in differnet place than you do doesnt mean theyre bad... this could have happened any place any where at any time...it just so happens that it was in allegan...its ignorant for someone to think that these types of things only happen in certain places.

THANK GOD!!!!! The real losers are the kids. The whole thing was over custody, and now the kids don't have either parent. I didn't know Troy personally, but from what I've heard, he was a good person, and father. I felt the pain of the community as I worked as a cashier in town. I was amazed by the way everyone lined the streets to show their respect when Troy was taken atop the fire engine to the cemetery. Those people don't deserve to live in a prison where they have three meals a day, a bed to sleep in, and free cable TV. They should have been put into cages and left in the gravel pit to rot!!!

And the award for the most ignorant statement goes to you. The pharmaceutical company here does no differently form amy other pharmaceutical company. I think that maybe the illigal drugs that you use have clouded or burnt your brain. What you sound like is a bitter person who could not gain employment from Perrigo. And, quiet as it is kept, not all of the lab tech live outside of Allegan! What a moron you have made yourself sound like! And how did comments about a murderer and the victim and his family get twisted in your head to an issue with the water? This is you life on drugs!!!

I understand the hateful comments. I hope the Tyo family can find healing. As a family member of Kris who has known him since he was three, I can assure everyone these were not the actions of the Kris I've known and loved. This process hasn't been a picnic for his family either. I hope he finds God, and is used by Him in a mighty way.

I am amazed that the person who is behind this can even type. All murders are senseless and without reason. The only reason for murder is that the person commiting it has NO control over their actions. Anger is a fact of life - but the way you deal with it is something only you can control. If everyone killed because they were angry or did not get their way - we would be down to the last person to fire a shot. Think before you write

As a friend on the Tyo family, I am glad that with this behind them and justice served, they can begin to finally get on with trying to adjust to life without there son who was loved by all. It is to be known they will never be completey healed, but at least they have the girls that they can know are truly part of troy and that troy will always be with them. God bless the family.

Who let you out of your cage? You obviously have the IQ of a slug. You are totally off subject when you go from a murder to drinking water. Why would anyone trust you? That would be like taking advice from a dead person as obviously you are brain dead. I agree with Amazed - you have fried what brain cells you did have and now are in a lonely void.

You hit the nail on the head. Why don't people actually think before they put a STUPID post up. The killers in this case were from Gobles so I guess now that person will blame the Gobles water supply for some crazy reason. And once more, what in the heck does the water have to do with the murder of an innocent man?
