this man was my cousin and i am happy to hear they have made the arrests ... what happen to michael was not fair not fait at all my family loved him and they miss him dearly there is a big part of out hearts missing now . we cant see michael now or talk to him we have to go visit him in a grave . michael was an upbeat and happy person he made friends were ever he went and was the type of person to help anyone if they needed it . he cant do that anymore . i know one day i will be able to forgive these young women and men for what they did but i cant right now it is to hard and my heart hurts to much right now to do that . i will pray for them .. and for now we will just go on living and be as strong as we can be .Nothing for my family will ever be the same . these people have affected so many people not just our family but there familys too my heart gos out to there familys because i know in the end most of them are probably hurting as bad as we are..... sincerly michael myricks cousin

I AM SAD TO HEAR WHAT HAD HAPPENED, MY HEART GOES OUT TO EVERYONE AT THIS TIME. I AM A VERY CLOSE FRIEND OF KALEB COVARRUBIAS AND JASON ANDERSON, I'VE BEEN IN SHOCK SINCE I FIRST HEARD ABOUT ALL WHAT HAS HAPPENED. NOW I WILL GET TO THE POINT, FOR ALL THOSE WO KEEP BASHING MY FRIENDS DON'T EVEN CALL YOURSELF A CHRISTIAN, FOR ONE IF YOU COMMITED A CRIME AND WANTED FORGIVENESS FROM GOD HE WOULD, BUT YOU'RE ON THE OTHER SIDE AND NOT FORGIVING SOMEONE OF THEIR SINS THAT THEY COMMITED AGAINST YOU, MEANS YOU ARE SAYING YOU ARE TO GOOD TO FOLLOW GODS WAYS!!!!! NOT EVERYONE KNOWS KALEB COVARRUBIAS OR JASON ANDERSON TO BE SAYING THESE THINGS ABOUT THEM SO IF YOU DON'T KNOW DON'T HATE!!! ALSO, IF YOU WEREN'T AT THE PARTY THAT NIGHT AND DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED DON'T START RUMORS!!!! FROM WHAT I UNDERSTAND THAT PARTY WAS FULL OF DRUNKS SO EVERYONES MINDS WASN'T ALL THERE. ANYWAYS, I LOVE MY FRIENDS KALEB COVARRUBIAS AND JASON ANDERSON SO LAY OFF THEM, YOU LET ONLY GOD JUDGE B/C REMEMBER YOU WILL BE THERE ONE DAY..... NO ONE ON THIS EARTH IS HOLY ENOUGH TO JUDGE....

You call it an accident if 6 people come back to someone's house with a chick who was originally told to leave? That's not an accident, that's a bunch of people starting a fight, and it sounds like that's what they did. Whether you love someone or not, if they did a bad thing, they gotta come to justice. That's how it is. She should have just left like he asked her to. And condolences to your sudden and unexpected loss, Myrick family. His name is familiar to me, but I'm not sure from where.

You people are acting as if everyone played passed the knife, one person ended a life!!!! Yea, I know loving someone won't stop them from doing things, you should read my notes alot closer!!!! Like I said before if you were not at the party don't say a thing, there are 2 sides to every story and I looks like this one has 2 just like the rest of them. I bet most of you people don't even know M. Myrick ya'll just want to be in the spot light!!! There is one person whom I'm not gonna say there name but they didn't even like M. Myrick and they are talking as if they did they just want to be in the spot light!!! If you want to keep bashing or saying things about my friends I'm going to keep writing back!!!!

One more thing I failed to say, I know the local news and news paper are putting all envolved to be some criminals so before you past judgement on this know who your judging... I feel bad for M. Myricks family because they lost someone close to them, all I'm saying is everone needs to lay off because I wasn't there and I'm sure most of you weren't either...

Hey Ryan / Myrick people -- do y'all know a Misty Myrick? I went to high school with her and was curious as to how she was doing. both sides -- keep the chins up -- let these guys face the law for what they did, but if it is a path that led them to prison, then there is always a different path that leads to the light.

this is hard, i was good friends with michael, but at one point in time i was good friends w they boys, i worked at dollar general with star, and had met her boyfriend a few times. So at first i was hurting for both sides but after hearing the details from party i am crushed. Michael was an amazing person who will be missed more than life itself, he was by no means perfection. But noone is!!!!! Michael I will hold up my end of our friendship by attending the court dates i feel as if that is the last thing i can do for you. other than living in your memory. I love you so much. As for the 6 involved, my prayers go out to your families, for we are not the only ones who have lost someone. They too will lose many years of a loved one. We are not the only sufferuing side and it took me nearly a yr to be able to say this, but i strongly feel for them. May god watch over you michael you will never be forgotten

Yea!!I am so tired of everyone putting down 2 out of the 5 who are invovled in that murder and as far as knowing what happened people are going to say what they want to say about those 6!!!! I don't even think most of you who write "rip micheal" even know him, people just want to get attention!!! By the way only 1 person commited the crime 1 everyone else may have been there but only one person should pay the price.... I do feel bad for all of Micheals family and "REAL" friends because I'm kind of in the same boat but not really I lost a very good friend to murder while I was in high school and I had to learn to let "GOD" handle it.... As far as this goes just because someone was killed doesn't mean that person wasn't in the right, I do believe "BOTH" parties have a lot of questions to answer.

I agree. I'm saddened for Michael, but I don't think Kaleb, Jason, or Albert had anything to do with this. Now I don't know the other people but I know those three. Albert hated going home because of his family problems (who appear to be the ones that did the actual "crime")...he finally got on his feet and was ready to start at HSU. I think it is possible to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. Besides someone could have just said that they saw them all beating on him...it was dark. Who the hell knows what happened besides these people? Quit with the accusations. I understand wanting justice but I think that deserves to come to the one who killed him.

Jason IS my brother. I wasn't there when it happened, but there is no hard evidence that Jason was directly involved in the attack. Based on the evidence the police gathered, they didn't believe he was directly involved either. From what I understand, he was knocked out as soon as they got back to the house and there are police photographs to corroborate that he was hit on the head. From what I understand, Michael was the one that hit him with a pipe and knocked him out. The Abilene DA is just trying to railroad him and has straight out lied about evidence in the case trying to get him to accept a sentence he does not deserve. The DA said he forgot which case he was dealing with. Sounds like he shouldn't be trying the case at all if he doesn't know that facts any better than that. Very weak excuse for a very underhanded deal.

They never should have gone back to the party to begin with and I am very sorry it happened, I just want to make that very clear. The trial started this morning and I just hope justice is done based on the FACTS, not some DA trying to make a big name for himself and burning someone without any evidence or cause.

I am a very good friend of Michaels, please stop pointing fingers, the damage is done, one life was taken from us. A life that we will truly miss, but you shouldn't point fingers at who you think did it and ruin someone elses life, or have yet another family suffer. Michael was an amazing person...so light hearted he wouldn't want any of this. I want justice too but I don't think that saying they "deserve" it is justice because all 6 of those people are somebody special to somebody, just as Michael was to me. Everything happens for a reason. Michael it's impossible to go one day without missing you....can't wait to see you one day brother

I knew Michael for many years and we were great friends. His death has affected so many people. Everyone says that Kaleb and Jason don't deserve what happen to them, well I say they did. They were there they had a part in Michaels death. They may not have been the one to stab Michael but they also didn't do anything to stop it. Instead they chose to beat him. Kaleb, Jason and everyone in involved have not got what they deserve. They will get that when they themselves are put to death.
