This ain't closure....Closure would come if family members live long enough to read his obituary

Well now, "Praying for Justice" with all of your wild conspiracy theories, what is your take on this? I mean, they found Troy Brake's gun -- the one that was used in the Wright township murders -- in his pole barn. Pretty convincing evidence, I'd say. That does not rule out the possibility that others could have been involved, but it does get a creepy, cold-blooded serial killer off the streets! I hope that Brake comes clean so that the grieving families can find more closure in the difficult weeks and months ahead.

Awesome job by several local police agencies!
Good to know the maniac that committed that crime is off the street. Too bad Michigan doesn't have the death penalty. We'll be paying taxes to feed and house that piece of trash the rest of his life. At least they got him before he struck again. The escalating nature of his crimes suggest someone who would have killed again.

Told ya all along that Praying for Justice is a liar and a rumor monger, I hope she apologizes to Jax,(who by the way I do not even know) and to the people who own and work at the Wright Tavern for all her lies and crazy talk.

My prayers are with all the families that are involved, I am praying for peace for the Zimmer, and Brown family, and I have done ALOT of praying for Troy's children, they do not deserve this, and I feel sorry for them that they will have to live with what this monster has done for the rest of their lives.

Has anyone thought to look at this Troy Brake for the disappearance of Janna Kelly.

1. Brake committed his attack on the prostitute was Janna Kellys purse was founf at the carwash.

2.Her body was found in Ottawa County, where the quad murder was committed.
Just wondering

I think the poplice should look into the Janna Kelly murder as well, I wonder what other things are going to come out that Troy is connected to, it's creepy.

Our small comminity, so close to this crime, and the people involved, can now know there will be justice. This will help our community in grieving rest a little safer, and know that our prayers have been answered in finding this killer. Please keep your prayers going for the zimmer and brown famillys, they need our support more than ever.

I feel very lucky, my huband worked with him. I'm glad he has been caught, who knows what could of happened. I shook his hand at company picnic this past summer. Talk about creepy.
i see great sadness in his eyes in the picture they first posted. My heart goes out to the family who lost loved ones.

"In an arrest affidavit obtained by 24 Hour News 8 before the ink was dry"

Please simply report the news, without putting your spin on it. I prefer accuracy in a reasonable time. Quit telling us how much better you are than the other guys at giving us the news. This is why I'm avoiding this site more often because when you promote how "great" you are, it makes me think that you're grasping at straws for ratings.

Had to get that off my chest.

Janna Kelly doesn't really fit the profile. She wasn't a prostitute or young party girl. But then again, who knows what goes through serial killers' demented minds!
