actually they were all best friends for many years. Jeremy had shown signs of being unstable for many years. He blacked out.

If everyone knew he was unstable for many years then why didn't they act as friends and get him help.Blacking out is just a cop out excuse! I'm sure he'll use that as his defense.

My heart goes out to his family and friends, and especially his very sweet fiance Allison. I hope she gets through this. He loved her very much!

This is sad about what happened. The fact that he blacked out is crazy and a cop out. I do agree with the comment that friends should have directed Knoy to a doctor for this help. Thoughts of killing and dreams of this is not natural. I am happy to hear that he has admitted to the crime. He gets what he deserves. His friend died in a brutal way!and with no good understanding of 'why'.

Derek was a very well liked young man. I dont think I ever heard a cross word come out of his mouth. He will be missed by us all at Balkamp. My condolences go out to Allison and Dereks family.

Well first off Jeremy never showed ANY signs that he was going to murder or hurt ANYONE! And for a fact Allison is not Derek's fiance he split up with her crazy butt almost a year ago. And all of my prayers and wishes go out to the whole family. Derek we love you and miss you so much and what happened was crazy and stupid. I am sorry my friend. RIP Derek Liphard.

I loved Derek very much but there was a lot foing on in our relationship that no one saw. I broke up with Derek actually. Jeremy may not have shown any signs and I agree that he hadn't however, I hadn't been there for almost a year. I had moved out of the house he and I had built back in March. But not because I didn't love him. I did. I left Derek so that he would take time to go get to know his daughter. He had felt that I didn't want him to get to know her or have anything to do with her because of how she was conceived and that wasn't true. I wanted him to be with his daughter because children are a special gift. I don't care what you have to say about me whether I was crazy or sweet. I loved Derek and I know why I left him. I know what was going on with us a little more than you did and I hope Tiffany and Addison are going to be OK. The three of us here in Indy don't really have a support network. Tiffany and I fought all throughout mine and Derek's relationship but I don't hate her and I don't hate Derek for what happened between the two of them while he and I were together. I even told Tiffany at the funeral that I was there for her if she needed it. She is now a single mother and that's not fair. So, whoever you are calling me crazy that's fine but Derek wouldn't have had the opportunity to have gotten to know his beautiful daughter if I hadn't made it hard on ME and left him. So go ahead and write what you want but I know what really happened and so does he and his family--his WHOLE family. My thoughts and prayers are always with his family and with Jeremy and his family too. Shirley wants everyone to be praying for all involved please keep that in mind. She may be angry with Jeremy but she doesn't hate him. Keep her wishes in mind as well.

To Allison, I am sorry to have put you out like that, I wasn't meaning it in a wrong way. You both were a little crazy when it came to your relationship but i do know that you loved him and he loved you. i am really sorry that this all happened. We all wish we could have been able to do something but it was SO unexpected, otherwise Jeremy would have got his ass beat a long time ago. I hope that you can forgive the way I said what I said. And by the way if you are wondering why I didn't put Jeremy's name as one of my friends it is because he isn't. I really do believe he knew what he was doing. I just feel sorry for Derek to have gone the way he did by someone he truly trusted. All my prayers go out to all of his family, you, and the rest of our friends.

He was another one who fell through the cracks, although it is not an excuse, he went to Afghanistan....and it is possible that he didn't reintegrate fully back into civilian life after this....He was always the sweetest kid over there.
