Do we always have to report on the NEGATIVE side of things. Gretchen was a student of mine and I think that these accusations are false! The pressure to hold someone accountable for this murder was felt by the Sherriffs office. Please do not judge Gretchen by these fabricated accusations!

you didny know your student very well, David was a great guy who would not harm anyone he was always ready to lend a helping hand a great friend to all who knew him. Gretchen is a cold murderer she is guilty. You should get to know who David was and Who is family is before you take up for a woman as evil as her.

I am sure you did not know Gretchen as well as me (a family member)! How well does a teacher ever know her student, a student is always on her best behavior when in class! She is an evil woman who cheated on David numerous times! You should get some facts before you speak!

PEELER, you are are Idiot,no wonder your ex school district is in the shape its in.Your a prime example of just how much brains it takes to teach,I knew David,we rode together for sometime and was as easygoing as it gets,and was a fine friend to many people,I also knew his slut wife,But it never accured to me that she mite have been behind it until I saw the way she made herself so public with all that cash,Then i knew there was more behind the story than met the eye.So, defending that tramp will get you nowhere in this forum,MAY DAVIDS SOUL NOW REST IN PEACE!RIDE HARD,RIDE ROUGH MY FRIEND, and I send out my deepest regards to the BELL family,signed;ROUGH RIDERS,(RR)

To all previous postings, the family would like to offer thanks to all the wonderful comments made about David. He was an honest, hard working family man who gave his all to make those around him happy. His positive attitude was contagious as well as his striking resemblance to Toby Keith! He also provided the community with a strong business and a helping hand when needed. As to the remarks referring to Gretchen, her guilt has never been in question from the day the murder occurred. There are many implicating details that have not been reported nor released by the police. The evidence is there or the arrest would not have taken place. The affairs, the fact of previous attempts to find someone to committ the killing, and the collection of the large insurance payout and business rights all combine to reach only one logical conclusion. The same verdict will be reached when this journey ends. God was always a constant in our lives and remains this way. He will provide all involved with the truth and lead them to the conviction of Gretchen. Thank you again for all the support.

I am, sadly to say, the brother of one of the men involved in this unfortunate case. I would like to offer my apologies to Mr Bells' family. I am so very sorry for your loss, I know it cannot be easy.

I certainly hope that all of those involved in this senseless waste of a life get their just deserves.

It is truly amazing to me that people can be so cold hearted and greed oriented as to take someones life for money. The old saying " the apple doesn't fall far from the tree" is not always true. I would like to assure Mr. Bells' family that myself and my parents are disgusted my brothers actions.

Once again, I am truly sorry for your loss.

My husband and I were friends with David and Gretchen, we bowled together. David was such a nice guy. I saw him earlier in the day of his murder, it was at lunch, asked him if he was working, he said no, he had to take time off to take care of something.He didn't seem himself,like he really had something on his mind,because he didn't smile, and David always smiled when he talked to you. That was the last time I ever talked to him.When I heard he was dead, believe it or not, I instantly thought of Gretchen having something to do with it,she never seemed happy around him.Several days after his death, she showed up in the parking lot where I worked, but wouldn't come in,she came to talk to one of Davids' friend. When I looked at her leaning on her car and talking, I again thought of her having something to do with Davids' death.You just had to know her to feel this way. We miss David, and feel so bad for his family,because for awhile everyone knew she was cheating on David before he did, and he was so good to her.

Your posting just shows what little brains you have my friend. You may not have had the best teachers in school, obviously by the way you write and your narrow mind, but that does not make all teachers stupid - only you!!!!

I apologize for using this post to vent my feelings about the recent post by "numoon". How selfish of me not to mention Mr. Bell and his family. I am so sorry for your loss - it sounds like he was a caring man who will be greatly missed.

Ok, how do you know the accusations are false? I'm sure the DA's office would LOVE to know. How do you know somone in the Sheriff's Office was pressured? Fabricated? How do you know this? Do you have any idea what you're saying?

Gretchen is very guilty. I lived in LP at the time of this murder and it's still fresh in my mind like the day it happened. She has always been a suspect they have just finally compiled the evidence.

If you knew Gretchen you would know there is no way she would ever do anything to David or anyone else for that matter! He wasn't rich and 275k isn't enough to spend your life in jail for people! It was a horrible crime poor David was a great guy!

She is my friend and if you truly knew her you'd know she isn't capable of something this that! She loved David and all married people have trouble at times but that doesn't mean she had anything to do with his murder! She is a good person and has been slandered all over the place, David wouldn't want this for her! He was a wonderful man and his true killers are out there maybe someone should focus on that fact!
