They should be charged with murder. That's what they did. They then could live the rest of their pathetic lives in prison.

Really? One of them gave the girl a ride to Canton so SHE could buy heroin, then SHE stuck a needle in her arm, so those three should all be charged with murder?
I own a car, and I know people that drink and drive. Should I be charged with DUI?

I hope they throw all three of these idiots in prison for the rest of their lives. All they care about is making money! Instead of selling drugs go out and find a real income

For one, no they shouldn't be charged with murder. That's ridiculous. They'll get a couple years of prison time and that's it. Convicted felons for the rest of their lives. You don't "lock them up and throw away the key" for selling small amounts of drugs. That's not how it is in reality. It's a shame about the woman who overdosed and died. Let that be a lesson to anyone considering injecting that stuff into their body.

They shouldn't be charged with murder unless they forcibly put the needle in the girl's arm. This is a sad, sad story and it seems like people in Carrollton want someone to pay for her death. I understand everyone's frustration, I really do. Drugs & addictions are horrible things. We need to focus on WHY kids are doing drugs & stop it. Only then will the dealers be out of a job.

I like how the RELIGIOUS family is the one telling the deceased family that they shouldn't be at the hearings. You're right. Holly made the choice to stick the needle in her arm. You are correct. HOWEVER. If we did not have dealers in this town, Holly would not have done that. Also! Jared, do you believe everything that is told? Especially something a druggy would tell you? I do not believe that Holly rode with this person to Canton to buy heroin. I'm pretty sure that drug dealers (such as the 'big ones' in canton) only go through their middle men.#justsayin ... I knew all 3 of these men at one point in my life. And at one point, they were all great people. Kevin Ott was a bad *** dirtbike rider who loved his family and his beautiful niece. Chris Burris was a nice kid, always polite, who went to church weekly. Stutler...well, he was just a person you would run into and say hello to. It's amazing how people change. Anyway, enough with my rambling. Doesn't change the fact that people are overdosing and these men are supplying the drugs into our county.

Couldn't have said it better.

What has been left out of this story was that Sheriff Dale shot at one of the suspects as he was running away. Even though the man was a scumbag heroin dealer he was still unarmed. Sheriff Dale claims he was firing a warning shot. That type of thing isn't legal in any area of this state. Why hasn't that been put in any of his interviews? Because he knows it's illegal and violates his own policies. What if his "warning shot" had ricocheted off the alley pavement and struck a kid walking a block away? Williams needs to answer for what he did.

After a two month investigation all he was able to accomplish was get one person to sell a very small amount of drugs to a few undercovers. Yes excellent police work sheriff.

This whole story is heart breaking! Yeah the drug dealers need put away but not because they "murdered" this girl, but because it's illegal! This girl made her own choices. Holly was an adult who took her chances. Was she ever taught the risks of trying/doing drugs? We all have to make choices in life as parents, kids, wives, siblings, etc. And we also have to live the rest of our lives with those decisions. No one murdered anyone in this story. The drug dealers will live the rest of their lives knowing that they could've made better choices and Holly made her own choices and will never get the chance to better her mistakes. That is the lesson we must teach our children right now!!!

Sober you can't just make an assumption that Holly wouldn't have done drugs if there were no drug dealers in "Carrollton"

The saddest part of this story, besides Holly's death of course, is the apparent prevalence of hardcore drugs in Carroll County. I would think about moving back someday, but not if this is what it's going to turn into. I will not raise a family in a place where drugs can make such an impact. You may say I'm hard-pressed to find an actual place that exists like this, but I'm determined. All I can hope for the sake of my family who still lives there is that whoever is in charge of law enforcement after this upcoming election actually cracks down on the drugs. Nobody deserves to have their lives ruined by that crap.

it's a shame that they will be locked up for one or two years and then be released because our prisons are highly overcrowded (because of drugs). I'm also tired of people saying stuff about the police department and the sheriff. please don't believe everything you read on google that has to do with law. the sheriff was apprehending a criminal and he has discretion on what needs to be done in certain situations. (although I believe that the sheriff shooting someone is a false accusation). as for the murder part they mag get one count of second or third degree but that depends on the attorney and jury. the toughest part is proving that the heroin that was injected into her body was in fact the heroin that the suspects were selling. that testing would take a long time. the coroner hasn't even ruled holly's death a homicide,murder,or even accidental yet. please let the pd do their job and remember that what you see in csi is not always true.
