What could have caused this man to kill his family? Sometimes guys promise girls that they'll marry them and support them if they get pregnant. If they aren't sincere, these guys freak out. Hopefully, this wasn't the case in this particular situation.

If there was no evidence how can they charge him? Circumstantial is not enough. Is there an eyewitness? Pictures? What proof do they have?Don't get me wrong. If he did this he needs to fry but, what if he didnt?

Well according to eye witnesses the description match him and his car. Then cell phone towers picked up his cell placing calls from around the corner of her home. Too many other people as well as me she had told that he wanted her to have an abortion.

My prayers go out to the victim's family as well as the family of the person who murdered this young woman and her unborn baby. When will our young women learn that getting pregnant by a person does not ensure a bond. Many of the young women of today have not been taught that they are special and that having unprotected sex with a man can mean DEATH. Where is the PRIDE and SELF RESPECT women use to expect from men. Why are young women fighting over men and allowing their children to be recruited into gangs. We seem to have lost a whole generation of parents. We have create children who do not respect themselvesor their elders. We need to WAKE UP and teach our children accountability and responsibility.

He was there we seen him and he was continueously texting up until the time he arrived! He did and there are key witnesses who put his car there and seen him leave. She did not deserve this and I do not know why anyone would doubt that who was not there and I am not one of those ppl

The witnesses are extremely reliable. They saw her alive earlier in the day and then they saw his car in her driveway and then a few minutes later when his car was gone, her garage door was up. They knocked on her door to tell her the garage door was up and she didn't answer. That's when they found the door unlocked and found her dead. No doubt he did it.

I miss you Tonya! Your daughter and my niece would have been born around the same time. We talked about taking them shopping together. I miss our long talks. I remember having teacher-talks. You were so smart and such an awesome educator! We had so much fun in college, but we were about our business. All of these years later, I am still crying. I will always love you my friend. I still look at your parking space where you used to back in at your last school. I used to call you after I left my school from a long day of teaching and say, "Girl, you are still at work." We would talk and laugh for a while after that. Missing you and love you! 😢
