To take a young beautiful girls life like that is not human. I pray for justice. The hard part now is to figure out how to live our lives without her. She will be missed........

SHAME ON YOU'LL. KYRON IS A VERY BEAUTIFUL RESPONSIBLE PERSON AND HE WOULD NEVER TAKE A LIFE MAN, WOMAN, OR CHILD. HE WOULD GIVE HIS LIFE FOR ONE THOUGH. HE IS A VERY HUMBLE PERSON VERY SPIRITUAL PERSON.AND IF YOU KNOW HIM YOU KNOW THAT. I'M A GROWN WOMAN AND HE EMPRESSES ME. HE WILL FOLLOW AND DO WHAT EVER THE HOLY ONE TELLS HIM AT ANYTIME. SOMETHING IS VERY VERY WRONG!

I know him very well, and don't want to believe he did this,BUT A young lady is dead. parents are crying, brothers & sisters are crying, someone did this and has to answer to god & the courts.

I wish I could have been there to stop it if he was there. smack the shit out of him & tell to go home! Thats my Dream!

who ever is talkin mess u wasnt there u dont know nothing all u know is that he is being tried how many black people have been killed by white people and got off the hook. Im not sayin that hes right if in fact he did do it but if he does get off its gon be oj simpson all over agin for some people its a big deal when a black man is accused of killing somebody white especially a woman but i know kyron he too silly to do sum like that. the police are just goin off what somebody told them not evidence.

Knowing some of the families involved here, I'd read several articles about the shooting, and didn't even know Kyron was black. It was never mentioned. I didn't know until I happened to come across his mugshot the other day. I know racism is out there but I don't think it's a factor here.

SO SORRY FOR THAT GIRL FAMILY MY HEART GOS OUT TO THEM. MY HEART REALLY GOS OUT FOR KYRON. I DON'T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED SO MANY RUMORS. NETHER DO YOU. I DO KNOW THE PERSON I SEE EVERY WEEK AND HE WOULD NEVER DO THAT. HE IS NOT AN EVIL PERSON, HE IS NOT A MONSTER.

Wow, I am not the smartest person in the world, but come on, Get a grasp on the English language a little. Some people write how they talk, can't understand a word of it. As for kyron, hang the batard, Everyone saying he wouldn't hurt anyone, BS. He has been charged prior's for unarmed robbery and B&E. this time throw away the key. But morons say,(Oh but he be a good boi, he be hurdin no ones, he be trien to helps peepole not hurd dems.) English MF'ers learn it

I pray justice will be served. For those that lack intelligence to post a legible comment or those that lack the mere facts from the case...BACK OFF!! The truth will be seen and for
those all involved...I pray for you as well. You will need more prayer than Stephanie and her family.

Hey "friend" from Griffin, GA.....people are not charged with Murder 1 if someone merely states, "The dude did it". Evidence had to be found in order to charge him with it. Get a clue!


Steph, may you walk with angels. God Bless you! You will be missed!!

I agree. No one is charged with Murder 1 unless there is hard evidence.

Is anyone able to say what the motive was? Not that anything could justify this terrible tragedy.

I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT KYRON. NO ONE HAS EVEN MENTIONED THAT GIRL. YOU HAVE SUCH BAD OPINONS ABOUT KYRON BUT YOU HAVE NOTHING TO SAY ABOUT HER. WHERE DOES SHE COME IN ALL THIS? SHE HAS A MILLION DOLLAR BOND! THEY SAY WHAT THEY THINK HE DID. ALL THE FOCUS IS ON HIM IF YOU ASK ME A MILLION DOLLAR BOND SHE PLAYED A VERY BIG PART IN SOMETHING.I HAVE BEEN TO EVERY WEB SITE AND EVERYONE OF THEM SAY "TWO CHARGED IN SUMPTER MURDER" AND EVERY TYPED WORD STARTS WITH KYRON BENSON OF YPSILANTI TOWNSHIP THEN PAULA RENA BENNETT. ALL I'M SAYING IS STOP BASHING HIM THE RUMORS EFFECT KYRON AND STEPHANIE McCLURE'S FAMILY THE MOST. PAULA IS NOT EVEN MENTIONED SHE HAS ONLY THREE WORDS THAT MENTION HER.

Read my 1st comment....I stated "all of those involved"....I didn't even mention his name and I won't even give him or even her the justice to keep repeating their names. For all those involved...there shouldn't be any bond for Murder 1, regarless if you pulled the trigger or not. Also, keep in mind that the dude already has a felony record. It is really difficult to turn a blind eye to that.

Frankly, Trey from GA....I do know what I am talking about (in plain English too). THE DUDE HAS A RECORD.....You can't tell me he is not capable of something like that. He was certainly capable of a previous felony and was found guilty.

TKR of Ann Arbor, MI....so sorry that you are naive enough to think that someone is not capable of something so evil. He clearly does not walk the straight and narrow. He has a record!!!!!!!

Justice will prevail and when it does Stephanie will be smiling down on all of us!!
