No it doesn't. Look at him. He's a sleazeball who will never amount to anything. At least this way he can't kill again.

I know this kid and his brother, only by acquaintance. I wouldn't say he's a sleazebag, but he is definitely a troubled individual. sucks to hear, but at the same time if at first you don't succeed try try again.

Looks like a little sleaze bag to me. He should make someone a nice boy toy there in the pokey though.

It doesn't matter which Lilley this young lady belonged to what matters here is the family has lost a loved one due to some stupid mixture of junk that is toxic.

We all need to pray for the Lilley family, it is not fun indulging in someone elses loss!

and what charges do the parents get? Where are they at when all this is happening. they dont know that she is hanging out with a cokehead adult. these parents need to be looking after their kids and not blaming everyone else when something bad happens to them

you obviously have no idea what you are talking about. that was not the case but I appreciate you thinking only the worst and being so naive. it never ceases to amaze me as to how ignorant some people can be.

And he didnt even wait long enough to get a new girlfriend that he is now "married" to, Auj should be ashamed of herself, he just killed his gf for 2 years. What makes her think he wont do the same to her? Then he deletes Brianna's and he's shared myspace to now just BriannaLilley. Poor girl didnt even know what was goin on right under her nose. I feel bad for her in a life and in death, it was all in vain.

If you knew the entire story you would or should be ashamed of a comment like this. I truly wish I could tell you everything I know so you would refrain from such hurtful postings.

Maybe you should say, so that everyone who does believe he is a good guy, can know what a d bagg this KID really is. No one really knows the full true story.

I know more than you think. Las cruces is still a small town where everyone knows everyone else. I wish I could tell YOU how I know what I know. I feel bad for the parents, I really do and I am 100% convinced that Zach's parents are going to know what it is like to have a child die by suicide.

Amazing that you know what happened that night when know one else does. Only the young man charged with this can tell you what happened and he is too cowardly to take responsibilty.

I am never one to stick up for a lawyer but the Lilly family has always played by the rules. They are good attorneys and they have never been known for dirty tricks. I am on the other side but I could always sit down with one of them and have a beer. I am sorry for the loss to the family.

Zach Baker was also implicated when Haydee Bello went missing. This is not the first young girl he has preyed on.

What's the deal with the black hair? Dyed? A wig? Another punk ass drug addict younger than Baker wears a wig to look like him.

A lost generation.

A similar overdose killed another friend of Baker's, a 16-year-old Las Cruces boy who died Oct. 6, 2006, according to MySpace and newspaper records.

Is this not a red flag people ? Who do we have running this city a group of incompetent idiots and liberal judges..??

Actually it was Todd Baker, Zach's younger brother, her ex boyfriend.
Those boys are nothing but troble, and horrible drug addicts. They need some serious help

This kid is simply a menace. Living life without limits. His parents eventually let him get away with "murder". Until someone actually died for fun.

I'm sure the girl wanted to get high, no doubt.
I knew a few kids like this a long time ago. Total messes. Some still are or dead.

But he wanted to get as high as they could and they did. Her little heart couldn't handle it.

Perhaps, given the same circumstances, she might have gotten high with anyone, maybe just not to an overdose.

He drew high card on this deal. She drew low.

Sorry to her family.

i went to school with him all my life and never once did he pose a threat to anyone. but everyone needs to remember once people start drugs it changes them. he wasnt always that way and maybe still isnt. he should be evelutated for mental problems. and i dont believe that he is what you all have calling him a d bagg. seriously. yea he did a bad thing but no need for names like that you dont know what he has been thru or his life so i suggest you just mind your own busines.
