Dakota massie is My nephew, i was never able to look at this case until now, years later, what a sick sad mind, he took so much in the worst way. I have never told My son about this and totally disconnected from Dakotas dysfunctional family. What cowards, breaks My heart for Joshua and family. And Dakota is white trash, not Mexican.
thank you....we are all sorry this happened. May God have mercy on him even though he showed none to my son.

Just reading random stuff on the internet and I somehow came across this. I think about you all the time Josh, how all those damn tweeters in your truck would annoy me lol, or the crazy games we would make up at tennis practice. Every year on my birthday I think of what happened that day so many years ago. I am happy we had a lot of fun on your last day with us, I miss you man.

This the first time I have actually looked on here.. What my brother was involved in was not right,that I do agree but it will be him to answer to god..but all you people talking down on him do not know the whole story nor do you know him.. Yes the petrea family has and does stay in my prayers. Their family did have loss ,so did mine and my life changed forever.. But talking down on my brother go ahead, god is the only one who can judge!But really the one who said that he was your nephew.. Screw you..

How can you sit there and honestly say "We weren't the only ones with a loss". You brother didn't get stabbed to death 72 times and beat at gun point. So how dare you even say that! I don't blame you for being mad that my cousin said that. But the decisions your brother made is why he is locked up.

Hello Everybody,
You´ll probably don’t know me, and I don’t expect you to know me. But I am a person that knew each one of those kids back then in the days. I was very close to the Cortez family and my cousin used to go out with Daniel Massie back in Junior High School at PT. Anyways, all I want to say is first of all, Daniel is no Mexican, alright? Second, we all, including Josh, including you or me and every single human in this world make mistakes. SO PLEASE DON´T JUDGE, and finally, all I want to say, is that if someone still visits and talks to any of those kids; Daniel, Ricardo, Terry or even Maria… ask them if it was worth it? Ask them if the cholo life, the badass life, the “I am all that shit” life was worth or is still worth it. I am sorry to be so rude like that, but is the true. Thanks to God, and thanks to the support of my family, I got out of that crap on time, now I can say that I am very happy and proud to hold a degree on my hands and that I was probably a pus*y back in the days, but not anymore. I rather be remember as that, because now I can hold my family and hug my kids and thank God I was I pussy. God bless everybody, including Josh´s family, Cortez family, Massie Family and even Maria´s family. Peace!

Murder is wrong,but at times it's the only way. Frowned upon one minute,and praised the next. I feel for both family's. But at the end of the day we easement there. Never know what caused it. All we can do it think and speculate. Another note,why is it that some one can be bad in life,but as soon as they are killed,they were saints? It makes no seance. We lie to our selves and try to get others to believe that lie. Most times people do. Because they are United against a common foe. We can't change what happen we don't have more power than the man upstairs. Just let it rest. A life for a life. One was takin,and the other sent away.pray for all the family's involved. Hopefully this changes that young man's way. God bless you all!
