I get it, I'm not trying to minimize wut James did, and Im not trying to minimize ur pain or make it something it is not. Wut Im saying is that maybe it should be let go and givin to a higher power wutever u choose to call it. It happened, James is gone too. I shoulda never got on this website. Regardless... U guys hav been in my prayers and always will be, I pray that the burden of ur pain is lifted. I just wish for all of this to be let go. The hate u hav for him will never go away, but to be stuck an angry for years to cum will help nothing.Forgive me or not. Hate me for loving him or not. Im sorry
I see no reason to hate you!! You didn't murder my cousin.... just in love with the man who did!! I feel so sorry for you! If you can find it in your heat to love a monster, then I pray for your soul.... love is not that blind!! so hopefully you realize you could never truly love a man capable of taking a human life, who knows, could have been a blessing for you!! If he can take a life so easy... It could have been yours. I'm not trying to be mean saying all this, I hope you take my words and just process them, as a gal who went through a few losers to find a prince. I just know i have lessons learned, and if I can spare you from wasting your love on a man less deserving than a good one you will find in the future! my cousin's death probably saved another if not many... well I'm almost positive of that!! James can't hurt anyone anymore... Good luck to you Kimberly, i wish you the best in search of your prince, a man who deserves your love.

FYI sister I have a very wonderful relationship with my higher power, in fact I am a Sunday school teacher that educated others and myself about forgiveness. But that is not what this has all been about my dear. Unfortunately it has been more about the actually threads in this forum.....the lies and condoning of violent and wrong actions. It has been said that for evil to prevail it takes good men to do nothing......I have forgiveness, my love Christopher is in a better place with our father the lord. I will always remember him and love him and his memories will live on through those that love him and in honor of my faith and in him I will not be that good person doing nothing against evil. That may very well be your choice but It is not mine to judge. To say that we are filled with hatred is to only speak of yourself. Christopher, his family, his friends, and I are all still here loving each other and honoring his memories. For me it is not anger, rather lonesomeness, pain and confusion and the desire to honor Chris by keeping the story straight and telling the truth. Maybe rather than accusing others of hatred or of hating you....you should try taking a look in the mirror. Sounds like you maybe the one filled with hate. "The past is history, the future a mystery but God gave us a gift called the present" And I intend to use this gift given to me...as long as I still have it.

Val: I am trying to get in touch with Dale to borrow back Chris's Baby book. I sent to him after Chris died. I would like to make a copy for Lexie to have. I will return it to him. It would be great if you could tell him. Thank you so much Janie

Your cousin is not inocent stacey, he was EK as well and he made his choices to do what he did. He was part of it all, crime, drugs, bullshit. Come on, u cant claim he was just an inocent man. He called James from booking at Norcor: the jail in the dalles. Yes what James did was wrong and hes doing his time for it. So leave it alone lady. He's paying with his life too. Its not always one sided: James's mom died since hes been down, hes locked up for a good chunk and he has no one but me and his sister who is active in her addiction. So drop it, whats done is done. Im sorry for ur loss as well and I dont condone James actions but please just leave it be.
Hey Kimberly...
I would like to know what prison James is in so I can write him... I'm from way back... like high school but we dated and he lived with me for a few years. I am just sad that he's turned out this way, I always wished for better for him :( I didn't know that his mom died either :'( She was a champion for sure :( my email is [email protected] Thanks.

OMG!!!!!!!!!! Save it. There are ALOT of people on meth and VERY FEW COMMIT MURDER IN RELATION THE NUMBERS OF METH USERS! James is a murder meth or not he is no father cause his kids are being raised without him, and if he was such a good husband and father why did he abandon his family to go get high and commit MURDER! So you saying one day he woke up from being this perfect man decided to do meth and the meth made him KILL my child's father? Cause I know all about how addiction works and murder-First F-ing Hand, So PLEASE save the perfect paulk story. Bottom line JAMES PAULK brutality murdered a man, a man that was as much of father a husband a son and a friend as he was. He DROVE AROUND WITH CHRIS'S BODY IN THE CAR FOR DAYS!!!!! HE CUT HIS BODY UP HE MUTILATED THE CORPSE!!!! Who cares what James was sober or not, only thing that he will ever be is a cold blooded murder.

Amber Please read all the comments on this forum, please hear the responses to Kimberly, her lies and manipulations, James may have been your friend in the past but he is not the young man you knew, He murdered a man cold blood, drove around with his body for DAYS and than chopped it up and threw it out like trash, but not of course before driving the body to his parents house to steal a shovel where the stench was so bad that HIS OWN MOTHER called the police on him. He than crossed into Washington where he killed two other people, it is here that he is doing 30 years before retuning to Oregon to do his time for killing my daughters father. Kimberly was not called by the detectives, she was and is NO kin to this crime, I unfortunately was and am. I am not trying to hurt anyone I just have a daughter myself and it scares me that you may be reaching out to a person who is long lost. AS a mother and sister I just ask you to open your eyes, on top of everything else, James has become a predator who feeds on young woman while in prison to get his needs meet. Please read ALL the threads and don't fall prey to unnecessary pain.

Lexi,you go from sunday school teacher to Judge awfully quick dont you. you have no idea what you are talking about, first off lots of people kill on meth, I am not making an excuse for him, but you need to get your facts straight before you tell all these lies, James killed Chris no body else. He did drive around with the body yes, he did get a shovel from his dad, no his mother did not call the cops on him, his dad did, it was not from stench either, he had just done it, so it wouldn't have stunk. As a God be-leaving person, I am sure you know of Moses and that he was a murderer also.But God saw his heart and used him. Jesus did not die for perfect people, he died for people just like James. Maybe rather that all that hate and un forgiveness that you have in your heart, you should ask God to forgive you and to help you love James and pray for him, If God was to move in James life, he could be a powerful witness in prison, and help alot of people who dont know Jesus, get to know him and give there lives to Jesus, and then just imagine how different everything would be if rather than only seeing the bad in people we would see the good, I know when God looks at you that he does not see the bad, if you are saved like you say, he sees the blood of Jesus, not your sin. And in return we are suppose to love not Judge and not hate. I will pray for you too.

james didn't just out right kill someone. he can be the best friend you will ever have.As a kid he didnt have many opptions.This is what he new and what he was good at. I don't mean murder, im saying the life style he was born into. All of us make bad choices some bigger than others,and all of us have family or friends that we would still care about even in thease situations. And this is what prision does to most people.
Yes he did just go right out and kill someone and brought his body to my house! He would have killed me too if he had a chance and if he ever gets out I have no dought he will. He had more chances than most in his life. He likes being a bad dude. I am so sorry for the friends and family of Chris Bailey. I am sick absolutly sick that so MANY of James friends and family protected him knowing full well he was on probation for past felonys and was carrying a gun and doing drugs. This could have been prevented! Chris Bailey could be alive and the man in Stevenson would not have been shot had people had the balls to turn him in. This was not his first rodeo, he was on probation for I believe attempted manstaughter that was pleaded down from attempted murder for a person he assulted with a baseball bat in Hood River, OR. What ever color you want to paint it, it is ugly and wrong. Bailey was the victom and his friends and family are paying the price. There is so much more to this story...

I think if any of you have somthing to say its more than freaking easy to look James up on inmate locator & write him yourself ........ More than half this shit you see in here is bs lies..... The damn newspaper couldn't even get it right using other people's names that weren't even involved or calling 'witnesses' Chris's girlfriend when she was James baby mama wtf people come on.... Nothing excuses what he did & if it were my family I would be hurt & mad too but the only one that can tell the truth to what happen or why it happen to any of you is James! & that goes for if your with him or against him
Ill Pray for you all lol

Don't ever say that. People go through many different things in there life. You have no idea what happens to him growing up. You also did not no the other side of him. He's one of the best people I have ever met and always will be.

Before all you people defend this animal you really should check out this web site about him and read the facts of just what he is capable of and then you'd run for your life. The person on here that said he was a sheep in wolves clothing def knows him well. He's still a very mean evil person in prison and to his precious family that he bashes in the letters on the web site (in his hand writing) they think he's an angel that was mistreated. He knows just the right words to say just at the write time. He learns what your weakness are and then caters to them...until he's done with you. And just like he blind sighted Chris he does the same to you and your left with a chaotic mess and he's no where to be found because he's already moved on to his next victim.

And my question is this he says he shot Chris because Chris was suppose to shoot him because David Kennedy told him to. Okay where was Chris' gun then? The only gun the cops found in the car from the case file was James' gun that he used to kill Chris. Check out this web site. The guy s a 12 time felon.
