Let's all remember, innocent until proven guilty!
The girlfriend said she had phone records indicating the correct times and that detectives never followed up with her on them.

I think they have the wrong person. Troy Brake is no angel, but I believe Jax had something to do with the murders. The wrong person will hang for this and the real person will get away with murder. The cops are way too eager to blame someone for this awful murder.

The whole thing is the gun that killed them belonged to Brake and he said he never, ever lends his guns out to anyone. I honestly think he did this and did it all on his own.

His story will probably change just like his girl friend's did. He'll say he lent it to his friend and his girl will agree with him. Amazing how stories change when attorneys are involved.

Driving me nuts. It doesn't matter if he changes his story. I think they have him. What I can't figure out is a motive? What would cause him to go after this family. Was it drugs?

Right!! Even the neighbors story changed!! And she has nothing to do with it just she was the one that called 9-1-1.

No, it wasn't her. She was accused of it but Sharm would never do that...I'm not saying who I'm almost positive it is though

If the neighbors story changed that makes me wonder if the detectives did not do enough follow up anywhere on the case before it went to a judge...

You are positive you know who was stealing money from the bar or who murdered the family...? Don't tell me - just do the right thing and tell authorities!!

I agree with the fact that Troy did this 100%, however, I do believe there is someone or something else involved. I personally dont think Troy just decided to go back after so many years and do this. I whole heartedly believe there is more to this story...Hopefully it will all come out during the trial!! Prayers to the Zimmer, Tolar and Brown families!!!
