So Cory is so wonderful ... As are his great friends ,too?

We were enjoying a nice night in Blackhawk, when 5-6 dudes started bad mouthing my son, giving him sht about his choice in clothes, and how they were going to knock him out .... Right inside the Ameristar casino! We needn't know who these jerks were and what we did to them. We went to stand by security while they circled around us like drooling hyenas.

Drove the 30 miles home .... Only to have them follow us!

Even to come to our house and try to steal the bike. We called police, and they took off ... Like the punks that that are!

Only then did we realize that they were pissed at the Richeele memorial shirt that my son was wearing!

Cory's jerkoff friends .... We got you on video at the casino and the house. Explain that one to the police. They are getting the jail cell next to Cory ready for you.

And Cory's such a wonderful guy?

HOW DARE YOU!!.. trust me this heartless peice of shit will get his in the end, keep on believing he Is innocent but I have all the faith in the world this heartless,cold,ugly monster will suffer for the rest of his life.. bring it on I say because God is all mighty and powerfull. You can't hide from him Corey. You are locked up and soon we will see your face once again and show you that you are nothing..

Richelle was the most loving caring young lady ... she cared more for others than she did herself. She had just turned 21 her whole life ahead of her. In a moment she was murdered and her life stolen from her and us. How fragile she was. Praying peace for her family! And God will get revenge! RIP our sweet angel!!

Wow.. Its people like the both of you that make me freaking sick to my stomach.. Corey Lopez sat in the court room with his "fan club" trying to show off for all those wanna-be thugs.. I mean seriously, he was smiling as if to say "hahaha im going to get away with this".. I pray everyday that justice will be served for Richelle Best.. I worked with corey & i saw what happened when he got angry.. He needs mental help & there is no doubt in my mind that he crushed that poor girls throat, without remorse.. I have heard stories of his mother.. I mean no wonder hes a monster.. she should be ashamed.

Can anyone fill me in on what happened on Friday the 30th? Is Mr. Innocent still playing the "victim"?

Yes ... Corey's defense team is trying to present the picture that even though he has a temper (and smashed out the window of his truck the night before), he was apologetic and never meant to hurt anyone. In fact, they claim he was only trying to leave town because he was fearful for his life.

Thank god for his ex girlfriend who came forward .... even before autopsy results in ... to present evidence on how much Corey liked being a "choker". And, Corey, how could you have "made love" to her the morning she died, claimed to have immediately fallen asleep, yet she was found dead next to the bed fully clothed?

The defense team is dragging things on .... Preliminary hearing to be continued in two weeks with testimony from coroner.

I wont be able to attend, so I hope someone posts info.

First of all, I am family to Corey and as you can see above my deepest condolences go out to Richelle's family as I am so sorry that this happened and I am grateful I still have Corey in my life. However, nobody knows what actually happened and a lot of people are pulling s*** out of their a**es so how about we all shut up and wait until we hear the evidence. And whoever said Corey was fleeing is a liar because he was at home grieving the loss of someone he loved dearly. I've known corey since he was born and he is the most harmless person I've ever met. I pray for him every day and I pray for Richelle too because her sweet life was lost too soon. Truth will prevail.
. Yes the truth will prevail and it has. He is officially charged with pre meditaded FIRST DEGREE MURDER.! All the evidence they had made me sick to know what he did to that poor girl.. No accident he killed her in cold blood and he WILL spend the rest of his pathetic life in prison. No one else will be hurt by this sick disgusting monster!! And if you guys still think he is inncocent after all the painfull horrible evidence, you are just as sick as he is.

wow first i would like to start off by sayin to coreys parents good job at rasing a child, you did really great look at your work pay off! second the courts and judicial system has to have alot of evidence to put someone on trial for murder. He should quit lying because its just gonna hurt your family more when they do convict him. second he should get used to being in jail he is gonna be there a very long time. hopefully in that long time he gets to experience the painful slow death in which i can only describe as deeply pornagraphic! get used to hanging out with bubba

The 01/11 hearing was a prelinary hearing for the judge to determine if enough evidence was present to add a 4th charge of attempted 1st degree murder. His previous girlfriend, samantha, had contacted police after learning of richelle's death that she suspected richelle had been choked to death. Her testimony given to police was that Corey liked to choke, when he was angry or having sex. On at least one occasion, Corey was so angry with her that he punched her 3 times and tried to choke her to the point she thought she was dying. Her friends heard the struggle, broke the door down, and pulled him off. Corey's defense attorneys argued that most of this was heresay and that, at worst, he was gulty of 3rd degree assault.
The judge did determine there was sufficient evidence to add this 4th charge.
Corey's lawyers entered four counts of not guilty.
Motions are set for march. The defense wants to seriously separate the cases, as they don't want the jury to hear the damning evidence of Corey's past and his fondness for choking women.
Probably wont attend these dates.
The trial is set for mid June, after what would have been richelle's 22nd birthday and almost a year after her murder. My son is a witness in the case, so will be posting updates.
Faith and hope

Yes that court date was another little piece of justice for our family and friends. I miss her everyday and would give anything to have her back. My sister and friend was taken from us way too soon and I can't bare watching him walk into the court room without a care in the world. I thank Samantha for coming foward and facing this monster. Corey your lies are un folding and the truth will prevail for our lost but never forgotten sweet angel!! Just remember you may have taken Richelles life but you will pay for it and we will not give up untill we get the justice we deserve! Justice will be served! I love and miss you girl!

Court Dates for Corey Lopez:
03/14/2013, 8:30 am: More motions hearings (slimy defense lawyers were not prepared last time, claimed that they could not talk to ex-girlfriend; but she wisely doesn't want to talk to them!)

05/01/2013, 9:00 am: More motions hearings (2 days)

06/13/2013, 8:00 am: Trial, set for up to 10 days

By the way, the slimy defense lawyers have now started their calls to other people (witnesses, etc). Watch out for lawyer quickly identifying themself as being with Public Defender. These are the slimeballs defending Corey. I don't know how they can stand to smell themselves.
