Amber Graff was found in a motel room partially nude from the waist down...she was found lying on the bed under the covers..she had a large amount of blood coming from her face and head area. She had been sexually assaulted and then beaten to death with a rubber mallet. The uncle appeared to be under the influence of alcohol and drugs when questioned at the scene. The 13 yr old brother told police that he thought his sister was sleeping under her covers when he and (uncle) Nelson entered the room several times beween 5:30 am and 10:30 am.. The brother told police that he and his uncle walked to Kmart where uncle bought a new shirt and put it on. The police said they later found the bloody shirt. Amber's stepfather told police that Amber had received a letter three years ago (when she was 11) from the uncle where he proclaimed his love for her and his wish to marry her. Amber also received another letter several months ago. The letter dated Sept 10, 2005 again expressed his love for her and that he "would not run away from his feelings for her." He wrote that she should not be afraid of him as he would not do anythig to her unless she wanted it.
Uncle Brad Lee Nelson is being held on $1 million bond, pending further court proceedings.

It seems there were red flags all over this one a long time before it happened. Why on earth would the kids be left with the creep knowing what they knew!!!!

Wow the power of internet can be a cruel thing, what was this person thinking that posted this in the first place. Your not punishing the convicted here you are punishing her family and friends by disrespecting their right to privacy and grieving. I myself have been a victim of a friend being murdered and no how it feels to see stuff published you relive that whole day all over again, please consider the family here and what you have put them through by putting this on the forum.

The practice of hushing up about children being molested, raped, and killed only help the perpetrators of these crimes. The perp actually counts on this anonyminity so they can continue to access more victims. Maybe if this pedo creep's previous crimes had been talked about instead of hushed, he wouldn't have had the opportunity to kill Amber! jmo

Thank you for understanding what we are going thru. I have to inform anyone and everyone that the mother isn't to blame here. She trusted family not to hurt family and was not only let down byt her brother who did this cruel act but also her husband and the stepfather of 10+ years. I wasn't there when I was really needed. I should have just taken the children instead of doing what I did. I had abandonded my family when they needed me most. The mother was in the hospital herself with a very serious illness (chrones colitis)- shortly after this act of cruelty, she had gone under surgury. As you can see, mom couldn't be there but I should have. I will never forgive myself for allowing my children to go with him. I also don't expect mom to forgive me - although I am still very much in love her, I would just be a constant reminder of how I let her and my family down and the cause and effect of my actions. I love you Amber and so, so very sorry for not being there 4 you. May god punish me in the manor which is due me.

You can't do anything about the past but you can protect the living from now on. And you can only do that by forgiving yourself and doing what you have to do now. We are all human and a work in progress. Somehow we reach adulthood and are given responsibilities that we don't know how to take care of. We are left to "learn the hard way" because our parents didn't teach us. This is what you now need to do for your living children is to teach them how to protect their future children. God bless you and give you the strength you need now.
Signed, a survivor.

Its too bad our financially strapped county has to pay a public defender to defend this man, but he does have a right to a trial if he so chooses.
One can only hope he pleeds guilty (plea bargain to avoid death penalty) and is sentenced to life in prison without parole. Either way the taxpayers will foot the bill for this bastard...
They don't like child killers in prison so he may not make it to long there.....

I have no faith in prison justice...they segregate child killers so they can all sit around and reminisce about their crimes with each other! They have a grand ole time sharing.

you have no clue what you are talking about - the step father did not take the funeral money - he gave it to the mother - it was stolen from her from her so called friend that she was sleeping with. don't speak unless you have evidence of what you are going to yap about - the step father left the mother only to protect her - was so angry at the mother that he didn't want to hurt her! he tried for over 20 years to keep the son-of-a-bitch away but the mother was sneeking him into the home and insisted that the children should see the uncle -
