Better be sure the invader is 100% in the home before you start firing. Otherwise you could be prosecuted.

FIRST & FOREMOST I THINK THAT IT IS A TRAGEDY THAT BYRON LOST HIS LIFE & I AM IN NO WAY JUSTIFYING ANY ACTS, NOR PASSING JUDGEMENT (BC I BELIEVE THAT IS UP TO A HIGHER POWER). HOWEVER, I HAVE KNOWN THEM BOTH FOR YEARS & WHILE THAT SHIT MAY HAVE SEEMED "FISHY" OR "SUSPECT" IT'S NOT INC0NCEIVABLE TO UNDERSTAND HOW THIS COULD HAVE HAPPENED. I CAN PLACE MY HAND BEFORE GOD (WHAT MOST OF BYRON'S FAMILY SHOULD CONSIDER) & WHOLE-HEARTEDLY ADMIT THAT WE ALL KNOW THE TRUTH. A.BYRON WOULD HAVE NEVER LOOKED OUT FOR ANY OF YOUR ASSES IF IT WASN'T FOR YOLANDA. B.BYRON WAS PHYSICALLY ABUSIVE(I HAVE SEEN, NOT HEARD FOR MYSELF!!!) C.EMOTIONALLY ABUSIVE - BYRON HAD NO RESPECT FOR YOLANDA WHAT-SO-EVER (HINTS THE FACT THAT HE HAD NUMEROUS OPEN, EXTRA-MARITAL AFFAIRS...PLEASE DON'T GET ME STARTED THERE BC U KNOW WHO U ARE)D.WHILE HE MAY HAVE BEEN A HARD WORKER, TRUST & BELIEVE THAT YOLANDA CONTRIBUTED AMPLE TO EVERY & I DO MEAN EVERY ASPECT OF THEIR SUCCESS. E. LET'S NOT FORGET THAT HE PLAYED ON HER EMOTIONAL "ILLNESS" ALL THE TIME!!! AS HARD AS I HAVE TRIED TO KEEP THE HELL OUT OF THIS BC I KNOW IT'S SOME BS, I JUST THINK IT IS AN INJUSTICE TO BLAST YOLANDA OR KEVIN, HAVING BEEN WITNESS TO THE TRUTH! SO...ALL THAT TO SAY, MY PRAYERS ARE WITH BOTH FAMILIES AND INSTEAD OF CONTINUING TO HURT EACH OTHER (ALL PARTIES INVOLVED), YOU NEED TO KEEP IT REAL & MAKE A CHANGE FOR THE BETTER! PEACE

Since there has been no new evidence, it appears that this will be a closed case soon.

Yes, the family is black.
Are you serious? WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES THIS MAKE? A VERY GENTLE MAN IS DEAD AND HIS WIFE HAD EVERYTHING TO DO WITH IT!!!!!!!!! I WENT TO HIS GRAVESITE YESTERDAY (WE HAD BEEN FRIENDS FOR 30 YEARS) still no headstone (they had a double plot). How could a man, who helped thousands of people STILL not have a headstone? My heart will forever be broken.The world lost a very good man, black, white or indifferent!

I think the Prosecutor never proceeded with the case, because there was no eveidence to proceed.

I just saw the interview with Byron's family on the news then read pages and pages of post. Of course, I don't have intimate knowledge of any of the parties involved. However, this "wife" seems to be a piece of work. Whether Kevin got caught up or there was a plan, it ended in unfortunate circumstance - the loss of a life. My prayers that justice will be revealed in time for the family to witness it.

Wow, Keep it Real. You seem to have a lot of first hand information. Should any thought be given to the fact that they were still married and no legal paperwork, that I've heard of, had been filed? There are a lot of horrible marriages. If he was abusive, it would have been nice to see him taken to the cleaners in court instead of killed. If that night/early morning shooting was a result of self defense, it would have been nice to have another call to the APD. Anyway, may God be God. Prayers for all innocent parties involved. May God grant peace to the innocent. I'm out.

I just saw the news report done on WSBTV, here in Atlanta. The D.A. Paul Howard stated that he hired a Expert Forensic Investigatior, that look over the whole csase and evidence, and came to the conclusion that it happen the same way as the Defendent Kevin Savage stated that it happend. But the victims family had never saw or heard about the report becuase the DA's office would not return the familie's calls about the case. I think that statement alone says A Lot.
