My thoughts and prayers are with the Brown and Zimmer families. I pray that whoever did this unthinkable crime will be brought to justice so that the families can get some answers and hopefuly some closure. God bless!!

This week I thanked God for allowing me to know these great people. I pray those left behind can find comfort in thinking about the joy and happiness they are experiencing now and those responsible are found soon.

To wake up every morning and think,'This must be a dream' has to be very difficult. To see pictures of happier times, equally difficult. But maybe the hardest of all to do is to say "Father forgive them for they don't know what they do". Forgiving our enemies is the quickest road to healing. Our prayers are with you in this difficult time.

Not really,i know the neighbor to the north and the house was closed up that night aka the windows shut.she also had the tv on. if the zimmer's windows were closed and the gun was a small caliber it would be hard to here the report. it also sounds like it was an exacution,so there might of been a silencer used. might there of been just 3 shots??

I hate to say this, but the truth hurts. sharm ran a house that the kids could drink, party and do pot. there were fights there, huge bom fires,destroy other peoples prop. people racing quads up and down the street.people did burn outs when they left.and sharm let this go on.the face book and youtube tribeutes prove this. they knew who there killer's were. jermys and cathrines friends need to step up and turn in the people that did this. they know who the dealers are and most likly ordered/did the murder.
You and "Praying for Justice" need to watch what you are saying! Unless you have information or proof of anything you say, it is nothing but BS and slander of someone who has lost their life in a senseless act of violence! Are you perfect? Will you be sitting at the Pearly Gates waiting for God to welcome you in with open arms?! I highly doubt it! These people were family and friends of many! They don't need stupid rumors, slanderous comments, and plain ole BS spread about those they love and will never have the chance to see again!

We're all pretty careful in the neighborhood keeping doors locked, shades drawn, kids close and dogs closer. On the news it sounds like they still don't know. I hope and pray someone or something turns up.

These people are now living in terror! catch these evil bastards and hang them all! Our community does not need this evilness! years agao there would have been public hangings for their kind!

I also heard elsewhere that this was a house that kids could go to as a 'safe' spot to party. It didn't say what all was involved at these parties and "hmmm" may have given more information than they should have. If it is true about the cell phones that is very scary, however if the people that did this did have the cell phones, wouldn't the police be able to trace the phones via the GPS tracking device inside of them? Maybe that is why THEY DIDN'T WANT SPECIFICS GIVEN OUT. Per an earlier news bulletin last week, the police were being very tight lipped because they did have several suspects but they didn't want to scare them into running or taking further action.

The police are still guarding the house..... I hope they catch these bastards! We will all sleep better out here!

Yes, they will be able to trace those phones and not soon enough! The State marshall is interviewing more family members and friends today. But in the meantime, everyone needs to be vigilant because these are some very sick and twisted minds and they do not care who they harm. I am praying that God surronds everyone with his white light and keeps them safe from harm and evil. And may I suggest that everyone who sees this say's that same prayer.

Absolutely nobody deserves what happened, & it's uncomprehendable that any human being could do this to another, regardless of ANY circumstances. You are right, people NEED to come forward, so the murders are punished! I am also aware that the house wasn't a very safe or responsibly run place for teens to hang out, yet so many did. Parents, PAY ATT. to WHERE & WHAT your kid's are doing!! It starts with YOU! Hopefully, your child will never end up in the wrong place at the wrong time. Prayers continue for all involved, & for the monster(s) to be brought to justice!!!
