Well, Mike it is unfortunate that Merle and Josh both chose this lifestyle, I have known both of them for a few years, and their problems started a long time ago. Your nephew had the option to change his life a couple years ago and I must say was doing very well, until Merle just would not leave him alone. She was constantly calling him, and harrassing him about being a home body. Little did we know, that the love of his life would be crack cocaine, and it over took everything about these two peoples lives. Now, Frank had issues too, but nothing excuses this.. I too wish both families well in this case and I also pray that with all the gloom that will soon approach all involved that some light does come from this horrible error. I'm hear if you need to talk. Diana

I just feel sorry for Kaytlyn, the baby. Josh worked for me and actually stayed in my house for a couple days and my wife and I helped them when Debbie was pregnant. This is mostly Merl's fault. She controled Josh, and never raised him right. Josh is a good friend and father, but was poor and had no family other than his mother. Frank was a looser also, he was just as big if not worse of a drug addict and abuser. Josh was under harsh circumstances. 1 he had just had his first baby born with heart problems and prematurly.(His mother wouldn't even take them to St. Pete to see her.) He had just lost his job. He was born in a huge hole and was just starting to get out of it. I'm sure Josh's involvement was for two reasons, 1 his Mother, and 2 this ass Frank had tried to kick them with a new, sick baby out of the residence, with no where to go. Merle got LIFE and that's what she deserves, but Josh doesn't deserve it. He can be rehabilitated, especially with his mother out of the picture.

obviously you are in the clouds about all this. on some notes you are close but when we are talking about MURDER. think again. to be a victim of this only frank could give input. arguments happen spite happens but hatred to the extreme of the taking of life nooooo. not exceptable especially when the person killed always came back to help-out merle,s situations over and over again and employed josh several times to try and give him a working chance... now do you honestly think this man was all you mentioned . or were satans mongrels at work i say frank was a friend troubled sometimes but good at heart..... and everything else matters not except the contentb of your true self... gb

It's been almost 2 years since his death was discrovered and you can not forget the pain. Life must have no value if you have take it away from those who treasure it and keep the memories alive. Merle and Josh and Debbie were poison to
Frank. The Baby was living dirty,infested,non-electric and non-running water apartment after murder Frank, they stole all his money and pawn his possession, but did they think about the baby. They wanted drugs. Why do we murder each other, because we need money for drugs. Merle and Josh are able live rent free, no worries about food or paying bills,and if smart enough get drugs. We still angry at the Zeigler.

it makes you wonder seriously about poor tommy, her son. tommy was my friend and he surely didn't seem like the type to kill himself. he was right handed and shot in the left temple. funny that tommy was about to receive 250,000 insurance settlement also.

I am so disgusted that they didn't get the death penalty. I knew Frank really well.
He was a different person away from that trash!!he was head over heels for me and we tried to have a relationship for a short while but Merkel constantly threated my life and his.she was a monster.a worthless pathetic monster who bred more monsters.Frank would be alive
Probably if I stayed strong but I had a young child and merle threatened her life too so I had to walk away.I'm so sorry I did that now
