I know the man that shot his girlfriend and then killed himself. please don't be in a hurry to judge, but to forgive.
I have know him my whole life and my heart goes out to his mother and father and his little boy.
May God bless all of you at this difficult time.

I think all people from Ironwood, and Bessemer are scumbags! Why don't they get a job?

I feel for the boy, where is his biological father? It's bad enough mom brought home this sub-human so her son can call him "Daddy" now he comes home from school to be shot and his mother killed by this scumbag.

As for your comment about all Ironwood/Bessemer people being scumbags......you are pathetic! Of course you feel the need to bring down residents of the northwoods, calling us scumbags, when you should be feeling sorry for the victim and her poor son! This sort of thing happens in other towns and cities and just because it happened here, why label everyone else? You should be ashamed of yourself. I personally have a great job and great family and I feel disrespected to read such a comment. I feel saddened by such a tragic thing happening here.....and I would never cut the families of these victims down just to make myself look better! Ever here of a little thing called Karma!

Local Resident:
You must understand that "shocked also" is an escaped mental patient that goes by the name "Dee dee dee" and "Ha ha ha" on other posts on other subjects - all concerning the Ironwood - Hurley area.
This retard ALWAYS asks the the question: "Why don't
they get a job?" . I think that perhaps "shocked also's" obsession with the northwoods stems from an unfortunate incident that a personal friend of "shocked also" spoke of to me once. "shocked also" was once cornholed by a bear somewhere near Ramsey
, and was never the same after. It seems that "shocked also" fell in love with the bear, but was rejected by the bruin and fell into the habit of "huffing" model glue constantly while looking for a J-O-B.
Some say that "shocked also" while never brilliant (or even bright enough to write more than one or two confusing lines of written manure on these posts), suffered from severe brain damage from the continual glue sniffing. Now, "shocked also" has the cognitive abilities of a toaster.

This is ridiculous... I hate to see negative comments on the internet that just say random shit to piss others off.

As far as the comments about jobs....... Bessemer has a problem with a lack of jobs, but this problem deals with all of the U.P, not just Bessemer..... Soooo idiots who make comments like the moron from Fox Lake IL did, please don't waste others time by writing what you just did... Go look up porn or something because by the comment you made makes me think you are in junior high..

Don't get down on the people, realize it's the fing government. When the government is struggling, smaller towns like Bessemer have no way of helping out the people who live there... It's complete bulshit.

And about the murder, suicide that happened in November.....

I knew both of the people who were involved in it... They were both great people... It's not right that it happened, but like the first person said - try not to judge, but to forgive... The guy was a great dad, he got caught up in drugs and life altering changes.... That's still not good enough, I just hope god takes care of them both...

Ok yeah he was a awesome dad! Your nuts just like all the Bessemer people! He had free will and he wanted to kill and use drugs.

So Bessemer is going to blame the government for a lack of jobs. Bessemer,Ironwood,Wastefield have not had jobs in 50 years. It's time for people to either move on or stop crying and blaming others for that area being for losers!

Words cannot describe how devastated my family is by what happened with Ladd. Out of all the people in the world "I" can honestly say that my brother was a very caring and loving person. If he had the chance to re-live those last moments of his life (after seeing all of the pain/suffering that BOTH familys & the community have endured) the outcome of that horrible day would have been different. The question in everyone's mind "Why did he do it?", no one will ever know, but I can tell you that my brother was suffering deeply with personal problems(addiction,depression, etc). I just wish that he would've reached out to someone and got the help that he needed.

Lastly, I want to thank everyone who has opened their hearts to my family & Amy's family. The community has been overwhelmingly supportive to us, and I can't tell you all how much it has meant. I've lived in alot of different places over the years, but I'll always be a YOOPER & DAMN PROUD TO BE FROM BESSEMER!!!!

Please don't forget the real victims of this tragedy, the two little boys who have lost their "DAD" and "MOM"!

i knew Ladd before he left for Colorado and i talked to him pretty much everyday while he was away working. The Ladd i knew was a sweetheart, someone i could talk to about anything.He helped me through alot of hard times and I wish I could have done the same for him. When he came back he was not the same person. He was into things he shouldn't of been doing and there was no reaching out to him. It made me really sad to see him that way.
I know it's not an excuse, and my heart goes out to Amy and her son.. and his too.
i pray for them everyday.
I will always remember the good things about Ladd. I miss him with all my heart.

Brent... i'm sorry about this comment i left on dec. 1st... it was a gut reaction just after reading the news. I was just flat out mad!! The lack of acknowledgement of Amy from the first poster really set me off! I know he was struggling. The tragedy has touched me and i'm just a friend of a friend. I have several times been caught up with emotion thinking about the kids.... again, i apologize for my above comment. My thoughts go out to everyone trying to deal with this tragedy!
