I should really not even take the time to reply to this post, but you stated in one of your previous post's here that you knew me? Now that is a flat out lie! People who know me know that I do indeed know people in the secret service! People who know me also know that my sister in law is indeed a child psychologist who runs a very lucrative practice. And.......people who know me know that I am not some nutcase, like you are portraying yourself to be by attacking innocent people on this board. If someone does not agree with your views, you come on and attack them! Lady, we are all welcome here and we all have opinions, speculations, therories, etc. You may say you are older and wiser, but that is YOUR opinion!!!!!!!!!! Peace be with you! Continued prayer's for everyone here.
You are sadly mistaken I never said I know you!
If you think I did then prove it.

Who is the one attacking inocent people? you better look in the mirror missy> ;o

Wow...let's see...

He says he owns the gun, he's the only one that shoots the gun, he doesn't loan it out to people. He says he wasn't home that night, he was alone that night, but he wasn't at the Zimmers. He won't say where he was, but he wasn't doing anything illegal and doesn't want to incriminate himself. Hm. WHAT could he have been doing that would be worse than what he's being charged with????

Does he realize he's only making himself look more guilty? Not that he needs help in that department!

Anyways...my thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the Zimmers and Browns. I can't even begin to imagine what this whole nightmare has been like for you all. And now I'm sure this is all bittersweet. They have the guy, but it deepens a wound that hasn't even begun to heal yet. Just know that your community has you all in their thoughts and prayers, and that none of you will ever be forgotten!!

Does anyone know of or about a figurine of some sort(from the 9-11)flag military,or fire fighter ect? And yes they do look at these blogs.
If you are not asking about a specific figurine; Home Interiors did make one after 9/11. It is a figurine of a officer and two fire fighters and the American flag. A replica of the picture so many saw at the twin towers.

I can't help but think there's WAY more to this. Troy Brake didn't just decide to go to Wright and kill people he used to know!There could very well be more people or suspects out there and this could tie into something we dont even begin to know. Also, I agree with a previous poster who wonders about Janna Kelley. Maybe he robbed her and killed her too. It's gonna be a matter of whether they detectives can get him to talk.

Thanks Chad very informative.

I notice alot of differences in that report than what was reported by the media,maybe on purpose?

Example Jeremy and Katherine both upstairs And Tyler in the basement and Sharm the only one on the main floor.

The press or advance had all 3 Zimmers on main floor and Katherine The only one Upstairs.

It also goes to show you what kind of a loser this Troy is, If he could prove he wasn't there but was doing something illegal why wouldn't he? What could possibly be worse than the crime he is being charged for?

This will be hard on familys for quite some time as more and more details on the crime are released. However as more details are released the more they can be relieved that they have the correct person and can have closure to move on with their lives.

Extended sympathy for Zimmer and Brown families!

I looked back at some earlier posts and Justice seeker is the same person as PFJ they changed 2 posts apart and are unmistakeably the same person.

Here is one of pfj earlier posts for all who want to stick up for this sick person. A side note Justice seeker was attacking Jax OCT1

Only two were murdered in their sleep. The two boy's were. Someone was pounding on the door and Sharm answered it and they shot her in the head. katherine saw it (was up with Sharm) and then they beat and stabbed her. Then they proceeded to shoot the young men in the head. then they set the home on fire. This is what has been peiced together so far. I am not going to say anything else, but this is how they were murdered in cold blood! Whoever these people were, they will be caught and not soon enough!

Now tell me why are we sticking up for pfj. should be p.o.s.

<quoted text>Chad,sorry about the spelling..But if you have talked to the police lately about this case you would understand what this is all about.If anybody knows anything at all about this figurine please call ocpd.
I believe detectives came to you with this information in confidence and didn't want it known to the public. Thanks for that.

They look at everything and especially the blogs. They look for "people who talk". I have a gut feeling that there is someone else involved in this crime.I still think it is linked to something that was going on at the Wright Bar. Troy blake would not just come back 10 year's later and knock on the door. The reason will come out. Those detectives have come this far and they will finish their business.
Guess we all just have to be patient and wait and see, if this is the case I hope they find out soon.
