These 3 men are all innocent, the real killers are still out there and the truth will come out sooner than later.

Clint McGowan was always a drop of poison in the pond of life. Even in school, the guy was worthless. He spent more of his time trying to figure out how to get out of trouble rather than staying out of trouble.

Prison is a waste for him, they should hang him from the tallest tree they can find.

I dated one of these guys and i also believe that atleast he is innocent. I refuse to believe that someone i once loved could do something like that. Innocent on all accounts in my book!

Agreed completely. One of them has attempted rape on a minor and I know this first-hand so no one on here can tell me otherwise. These guys have always been users that would do anything to get theirs. It saddens me to see that they were obviously able to fool *some* friends and family into believing they were decent individuals. Both of these men are scum, guilty as charged.

I did not know the McGowan brothers but i knew Eddie Griffes and i do not believe any of this about him. There is no way the man i once loved could ever do this to another human being. Sure he has done his share of bad things but he hasn't hurt anyone but himself.

I grew up with these two brothers, it was only a matter of time before they did something horrific. Frank is just as much to blame for thier behavior, he himself is no stranger to incarceration or running from the law. I remember him dodging accusations of a serious car accident, letting his wife take the fall. Thats how he raised those boys, party every night, drugs for the whole family, when we run out we'll make more. Look what these two have done since they been in prison, Clints level 4 and Heath is level 5. You don't get there being the sweet angels you people think they are.

i also grew up with them and like the other person said it was jsut a matter of time. does anyone remmber how they sued and won money for clint getting hit on by a car due to his stupidity and then his mom and dad blowing the money they won. there parents are the ones to blame and they should be in cells right next to them. i do miss the fun times i had with them when i was younger but im glad i took a differenbt road. RIP boys

That is just stupid. Just because you loved him doesn't mean he's a good person on the inside.

I agree with Amanda on some level. I am Eddie's sister in-law and to tell you the truth I can't stand him most of the time because he is always on something. But I know for a fact that he was NOT involved in this in any way do to the fact he was in a car accident shortly before and my Husband and I were at his parents the weekend that this happened and he only left when he went to the hospital on the night of the 19th and then he canme back to his parents after they helped him. So even though I do not like him I know he does not deserve to be in prison for life

They all deserve to be in jail for life. How can you justify taking someones life? They wanted to get thier next fix so they had to get it somehow praying on people who are unable to defend themselve and are "easy" to get to are the way these boys are. They never worked for anyhting in life they stole it!
