None of those 6 should've been able to live another day on this Earth.

And I was pretty much sickened by the whole thing, including the families that raised them, the cops that didn't do there jobs and especially the state trooper that just wrote them a speeding ticket. I mean come on, a junk car, packed full of kids, from another state, minors in the car and was probably full of drugs. He could've saved 3 lives, but all he cared about was money.

I thought it was pretty clear that the ONLY thing the trooper had on them was the driver was speeding. It was a horrible tragedy, no doubt.:-(.. The things reported by the family hasn't been reported properly for it to show up in the system. Therefore, he could not have lawfully detained them.

This is an excellent example of what dysfunction does to innocent children who never got a chance. Poor Peter & Tabitha Lillelid :( It was also tragic that the thugs who did that were once innocent children in poverty & dysfunction who never had a chance & got mixed up in evil that ultimately led them down the wrong path. I hope other young people will learn from this horrific tragedy of falling into the wrong crowd, being at the wrong place & time with bad people, & that the bad DECISIONS you make can have life long negative impact. This case still makes me cry.

Isn't it against the law to bring minors across the state line? If you would have pulled over a car that was speeding and it was packed full of teens from another state, wouldn't you have done a little investigating. The DA said they where so packed in the car, I took it as they where like laying on top of each other.

Only if the minors were reported as run aways, otherwise a lot of us would be in a butt load of trouble for transporting minors across state lines.

Interesting documentary. I wish they would have talked to more than just the one girl. There is no way the officer could have known what was going to happen. He did his job within the boundaries of the law.

Yes, I watched the entire documentary and I would've liked to see them interview the others as well. The fault of this tragedy could never be put on the officer... Those who believe such only wish to punish more for this deplorable moment of history. That, I suppose is natural, but you mustn't punish the innocent. This officer could have, in no way, foreseen the horror these kids would be committing... Many people have been shown mercy by officers.
I am quite saddened by it all...
A mom and dad and two beautiful babies...
Kids not understand how precious life is... Hurt in their soul... Trying to belong... And finding a home with evil...
Yes... something was broken within when I followed this case as it was for so many... And I'm not certain it still isn't.
That poor innocent family...
So close to home...
The shooter... he will never hold my sympathy in any since of the word...

A few yrs back, I saw an update on Peter Lillilid, the lone surviving little boy. It was so very sad. He still has physical disabilities as he is blind in one eye & has impaired motor skills. He was very fortunate to have loving family & extended family in Sweden & Norway, far away from the tragedy. i cannot imagine the mental scars he will always have. Although none of us knew him, we in Greene County will always love him & have a special place for him in our hearts.:) I certainly do!

I wished they had done a documentary on the Ginger Turnmire murders back in 1986. She and her friends back then were basically doing the same things these six kids were doing.

Yeah, I wouldn't go along with that phony "thrill killers" angle that the prosecution was trying to sell. Is that what Turnmire and her friends were doing?

I think I remember seeing a write up in the paper about the documentary when it was made but I'm surprised this isn't more widely known. It was fairly well put together. It really didn't try to sway you one way or another as to the guilt or innocence of any of them. Maybe slightly towards Natasha Cornett but it didn't change my opinion at all. I really wish it would have gotten more into the forensics side of the investigation. I would have liked to see how they determined who the shooter was and what evidence they had. Still a very good documentary of one of the darkest days in Greene County history.
I can recall I handful of bad moments in the county since I moved here (the tornadoes, the murder/suicide involving the teenage girl, these murders).

And there was the boy who stabbed his sister multiple, multiple times.
