I am sorry.........It's just that my heart aches now that I have heard something that I feel so helpless about. As parent's, we feel that need to protect the children in the community. But when something is this big, it makes you feel helpless and you wonder just who can you turn to, who can you trust?

Could someone get me up to speed on who JAX is that everyone keeps talking about, and her connection.
Mich2008,
There isn't any connection between Jax and Troy. There are several people here on this forum that have been trying to blame the Zimmer incident on Jax. She is a bartender at the Wright Tavern. If you search for all the stories on here about the Zimmers you will find that you can read the comments on the stories and that might offer some insight into your question. Just remember that there is a lot of baseless accusations out there flying around, there seems to be a lot of people on here that have tried and convicted Jax of this crime, as well as have accused her of others. I do not know Jax or the Zimmers but I have kept up on reading these forums, and I can tell you they are full of gossips. If you do go back and read all the threads that pertain to this, you will be surprised at how crazy some of this stuff people are saying is.
This is a terrible tragedy that has affected a small community and is shocking West Michigan, whether or not Troy is really involved with the Zimmer thing remains to be seen. As far as the other stuff they are charging with him, I suggest they let him hang, as this man is obviously a danger to society.
peace

Hi, Justice & Jackie. I read your posts & was wondering if you have heard something new regarding the investigation, or if you're simply referring to the helplessness we all feel with the horrific crimes we've been concerned with since Sept? You certainly don't need to give any details, if there is something new. I just wasn't sure if I was following your posts correctly. Thoughts & prayers continue for the two of you, Close family, Canon, RIP, Annon & allmof the others grieving.

My favorite as well... but for me it's a dish best shared. I tried, but could not finish it. I don't think my hubby and I together could finish one of those. They are tasty though.

Where was that stated?? I have followed this story pretty close as I am new to the Wright Township area and a little nervous!! I'm SURE I have missed some small details!! If this is in fact true, then I am sorry!!! I just havent heard that at all...I have followed the Julia Dawson murder and was an aquaintance of the family...So I guess I already have my opinion on WHO I think killed Julia!!! Again, please accept my apology...
