r.i.p natasha.
i feel bad for both families and my prayers are with them both, seeing natasha is gone, and bim's family is also missing her.

alot of things the media have been twisted around about this, and i know they dont want things to get out. but too many people are jumping to conclusions about this whole situation. my best friend is currently dating bims brother, and she's the cousin of natasha's friend who brought her into this. she was on the phone while this all went down. i feel that the other girls involved all need to be charged with something as well. they have been harassing bim for weeks, sending her texts about what they would do when they saw her, and other horrible things. i feel very sorry for natasha for fighting her friends battles, and getting herself in this situation. her friends should feel guilty, and i know they will have to live with that for the rest of thier lives.

bims brother did NOT hold natasha down. if this was the case she would have been stabbed more then once. my friend heard the whole fight, and natasha would not let any of this go. she kept screaming and yelling things to bim, and this is what caused her to snap.

although she could have went inside and called the cops, she chose this route. it's sad that someone died over something so dumb. i do hope that bim does not get charged with first degree murder, she was defending herself to an extent. if i was being threatned by females, and recieving hateful texts and followed home from work, in the heat of the moment i might have allowed myself to also grab a weapon. i don't condone what bim did, but i don't think that first degree murder is right either. yes she should be punished for her actions, and i truly believe that once the trial starts up, and everything is out in the open that her punishment will suit her crime.

Natasha was a kind, loving & talented young woman. Let's help keep those beautiful memories of her gentle spirit alive. She will live on in all who knew and cherished her. With much sadness and genuine heartfelt sympathy, I extend my condolences to all families involved! To the Gonsalves and Flores family may the love and prayers from your friends embrace you always. To Rebecca and Mark, you created an inherently beautiful daughter who will always be remembered as the shining star she was! Natasha will never be forgotton and will always remembered.

I agree 110% This is way out of control and if you have any infomation I think you owe it to Natasha and her family to come forward and tell the truth! This was a senseless murder! If anyone else is involved then two should be on trial! This girl may walk and justice may go unserved unless you clean your soul with what you know!

Natasha Gonsalves was a student at the high school I am currently a junior at. I knew her through some mutual friends last year. It is crazy to believe this happened, i feel like i just spoke to her days ago. RIO Natasha.

I disagree w/ your comment that an 18 year old should have been home at 10pm and that is the reason she was stabbed to death!! Are you for real?? There is not right time for anyone to take someones life! Furthermore, If that girl was scared then why didn't she stay in the house and call the police?? She went and got a knife....sounds like she wanted to savagely hurt someone. She is a mother too, how sad she has violently taken another mothers child. I pray for both girls. The soul of the deceased and the suspect who will spend the rest of her life pondering why she made such a devasting decision. That was a brutal,vicious act and to blame the victim is outrageous!! Everybody (both families & friends) connected to this tragedy needs prayers.....keep your uneducated opinions to yourself!! Peace

How stupid can one be to get in a car around eight o clock or 9 and start to follow someone to fight. This is how you kno if the person is from good home or not, am sorry for the two loss but parent need to train the children in a way that they kno better not to be out on the stree that late or even fightin. Now she was caught at the worng place at the worng time fight friend battle who could have been durin it her self. Bim baby u r in my prayer am hopin the best for u and ur family , also to the family of natasha am prayin for u to have inner pace and to also lear from there mistake. The bible say brin up a child in the way she should grow so went she is old she would depart from it.hope the both families take this case serious and learn from it cuz this is nonesense, she die for nothin or becuz of a friend who alive and care less right now, hope she goes on trail too. Bim ma am prayin for u. I love u keep ur hewad up. God will fight ur battle.

all of you need to realize that what happened, how it happened, where it happened, is none of ANYBODYS BUSINESS besides natashas family and friends. for all of you who left nice comments and are saying prayers god bless you, but seriously for some of you to even bring her background into this is just plain disrespectful. Somebody just lost a child, a cousin, a bestfriend and all your worried about is fighting over a situation that has NOTHING to do with you. you all have the right to your opinion but at the end of the day, guess what, it doesnt matter. because YOUR opinion is not going to keep/release her from jail or bring natasha back. so have your opinions but think about how natashas mother or family feels when they read this message board. stop acting like a bunch of kids and grow up and show some respect. and unless you were standing there when everything went down. you DONT know the truth. and you probaly never will. so DONT make assumptions. R.I.P natasha. your missed by so many. and no matter the situation it should have never came down to this. you were a beautiful girl with alot to live for.<3

My Prayers are with the Family. I grew up with Natasha's Father. I am praying that god will truly comfort and heal his heart. I too lost a child who was murdered and the only way I was able to survive was to really rely on god. So to the family of Natasha trust in the Lord with all your heart, he promises that one day we will be reunited with our loved ones. So until that day live your life with purpose and meaning for the memory of Natasha. God Bless

Excuse me but, the only thing "stupid" is your lack of information and off based comments!

Natasha did come from a loving home where the "right" values were instilled in her. She was a loving, gentle, kind and talented girl who flourished into a good natured, well demeanored young woman. She did positive things w/ her life such as singing, dancing, mastering the piano.....the list goes on. She spent lots of time w/ her family who admired and loved her as much as she did them.

She was 18, loyal,loved her friends and died defending their honor! This tragedy could have happened to anyone. Unfortunately, it was beautiful Natasha who came from a home that was monitored, and included Parents and Grandparents who influenced her positively and to be a respectable young woman in our society! She had a lot of positivity to offer this cruel world. Now she is an angel looking down on all of us as we struggle w/ this unimaginable loss.

We can't always control what our children do, we just have to love and teach them to be genuine and loyal has Natasha's family taught her. Young adults don't always make the right decisions but, that's apart of living and learning. Now, the only thing that Natasha has received is a pre-mature death sentence. She didn't have the option to live and learn as her life was cut way too short because someone (Bim) else has made a "stupid" choice. However, She (Bim) does get the option to wake up, make better choices, turn her life around and do something positive one day.
Especially w/ all that has transpired, I sincerely hope she does, given the fact that she has a child as well.

All you can do is pray that God will keep all of his children safe, harbor us from pain and the ignorance of those who don't value another. Let's not judge, especially duing this tragedy. How about offering love, sympathy and support to all that are heartbroken over this unfortunate incident.

You seem to quoting the bible in your comment, if you really care then, you should heed all that is stated and have no prejudice, judge fairly and pray for all affected by this horrific tragedy!

Do everybody a favor especially those who are trying to leave condolences and nice memories for the girls..........Why don't you move on and get off the computer with your NONSENSE. It's hurtful and foolish. You really are not helping your friend Bim, you are showing everybody how ignorant some of her friends are!

dead beat dad

Kingston, RI

#41 Mar 26, 2008
well all i have to say is this is a very sad situation and i would not wish death upon anyone and for this to occur is simply a heart breaking event. however, natasha's soul is with the lord, and yes bim may lose her son, which is sure to happen, but as for "dead beat dad" get ur facts straight because i know for a fact that bim's son's father is taking care of his responsiblities so leave her son & his father out of it because this situation has no regards to either one of them. that innocent boy will be raised with love and lets face it, we should be keeping our small minded comments to ourselves. there is no justification to what has occurred, but none of us were even there to know what truthfully happened besides a few individuals. so it would be best that we keep our comments to ourselves. who knows why natasha and her friends followed bim home.... who knows why bim called the cops and then resulted in stabbing natasha? or why natasha's friends didn't help? these are questions im sure none of u ignorant ass people know the answers to those questions. so yeah to sum it all up. MIND YOUR BUSINESS unless you are family, friends, and this event regards you because gossip never helps.... RiP Natasha...
