I don't understand why someone would go through so much trouble if it was self defense. And if his arm was broken in "self defense" than why did he use the said broken arm to open the door to the Town Pump to get gas to drive 30 miles to dump his friend?
I saw the guy in front of my door, cleaning up the remains of his friend...hours after it had happened. I don't think the fact that he had problems is a decent excuse for what he did, or what he did to try to cover it up. There are resources and people to help in these cases, but it is up to the person to seek help. I read that he told one of his good friends that he was afraid that he was going to hurt someone someday. Maybe that should have been a clue.
I feel awful for Kenneth. He has to live everyday knowing what he did. He knows the truth.
And I would like to thank him for fucking up my life as well.
Yeah. What a great guy.
Well that sucks that you believe everything that you read. The source this came from also reports being Kennys friend for years. Well, I happen to have been Kennysbest friend for years and know that every word that source has said is utter bullshit. He was not Kennys friend. That click/ group of friends all took advantage of Kenny. They took his medications from him. They let weathly Kenny buy drugs and do every damn speck of it with them and they never ever ever gave two shits or a fuck about his health, well being, state of mind, or anything else that had to do with anything but his wallet and his ablitilty to get drugs. They kept him going and going. That is why Kenny left jackson. To start fresh, get everyhing back in a row and live a happy life. Then you have your past jump through the fucking door and pur cement around its feet in your living room and say " take care of me or else ". How the fuck do you think you can even begin to know the facts buddy? No one really knows what happened to the T. But having been Kennys support and best friend from the damn begining, I think I have a pretty big fucking clue!

Idk who either of these guys are.
but murder happens every day.
oh he is fucked up
oh but he was in self defense, and he is a murderer.
STFU.
every single person in this room is a murderer in one shape or form whether you commit the act, or support it with your tax dollars ;]
a fight broke out and someone was killed.
cry for the moment.
but to think anyone really deserves to live in this shithole called earth.
well
take back my eighty years god.

This discussion board is a good example of why we have jury trials in the United States. Some of you have convicted Kenny and some of you profess his innocence. I say we let the jury decide. Those of us who know Kenny, know that he didn't MURDER anyone. He certainly killed Mike, there is little doubt about that, but we have to give him his right to innocence. At the trial - whenever it may be - will give Kenny the opportunity to either take responsibility or provide a valid defense. We don't know the evidence, there is much more here than we know from reading the Missoulian. If we were to rely on the newspaper to convict people of crimes, then we would all be in a world of trouble. Despite what Kenny did on that terrible morning, he is a good person - I believe that in my heart. In the end Kenny has to live with those events, self-defense or otherwise Kenny will serve a life sentence. "In anger his master turned him over to the jailers to be tortured, until he should pay back all he owed. This is how my heavenly Father will treat each of you unless you forgive your brother from your heart." (Matthew 18:34-35) RIP MM

P.S.- Chosen1 is small minded sadistic parasite. Probably more criminal than Kenny over thought of being. He will burn in hell for his sins. I will pray for Kenny's salvation and Chosen1's demise.

Attorneys for a Missoula man accused of killing his roommate then dumping his body off a bridge say he suffers from brain damage. Cyril Richard faces murder charges for the 2008 death of 31 year old Michael Meadows. Attorneys for Richards say in 2005 he was in an accident that left him in a coma. They say he suffers from post traumatic stress disorder and brain damage. Today a judge told attorneys to give prosecutors Richards' medical records. Prosecutors are looking to negotiate a plea deal.

If any of you think that you know this case... you dont. He is not being offered a plea deal... I will make sure that our lawyers take this to a jury...
I want him to suffer everyday the way that we do... look into the eyes of Michael's daughter everyday like I do and tell her that the man who took away her father will be put away for the rest of his pathetic excuss of a life...
mental problems my ass Kenny... come on... do you know that Mike's daughter has dreams about meeting her father in Heaven some day... cries in the middle of a school day cause she misses her "Daddy Micheal", looks exactly like the man "Kenny" so brutally murdered.
Look into those eyes everyday... I have to... I have to deal with this every fucking day of the rest of my life and he needs too feel the same.
"Kenny" as his "friends" call him... good luck having any friends after you get ass rapped in prison for the rest of your life... do you think that anyone will stand by your side when you are sentanced to life?? The evidence against you is strong... No one will come and see you... no one will even remember you after a few months and they will all go on with thier lifes and you will be all alone left to think about what you took away from my little girl, MICHAEL'S LITTLE GIRL!! every day... the face of Michael will haunt you... you and all your supporters need to hear this, because this is the everyday reality of it.
"Oh my God... I feel so sorry for you... Oh poor Kenny, nobody knows what he was going through..." FUCK THAT! You KILLED someone you dumb fuck... of course your going to be in prison forever... thats why we have laws... deal with it... you did it... now suffer the conciquences!!
Stop all this stupid court non-sence... your just making it harder on yourself and Michael's family... take responsibility for your actions, do the right thing... stick with your confession and do the time... be a REAL Man!!! unlike you have been thus far!!
I do feel for your family though... that they have to claim you as thier son... a murderer... If my child ever took the life of another... I would hope that the courts and jury would be fair to them... but all must face the conciquence of their actions... and my child too would have to suffer the same fate... its called be responsible for your self and your actions... that's how I was raised and how I will raise Michael's one and only child...
SHE is the only one who can carry on her father's memory in a positive way... and unfourtinatly she will see all of the things you all wrote about her father... But everyday I keep her happy with the thought that dispite his flaws her father was a simple but great man.
We celebrated the 1 year anniversary of Michael's Death earlier this year... and I had a moment of silence on the anniversary of his body being found,(a month and a half after his brutal death.)
I cried... said a prayer and asked Mike to keep his hands over his daughter as she walks through life without him... and in my heart I knew he heard me... and his hands forever stay over her... everyday and night. RIP MICHAEL JAMES MEADOWS

Response to the above: It is funny how, in death, people become more than what they were. Suddenly Mike was a great father and he wasn't a vagabond traveling around doing drugs and leeching off of people. No daughter should be without her father, but her father wasn't there in the first place. Yes there was that possibility, but if Mike was such a good father then why was he in Missoula/Jackson and she was in California? I don't want to attack the dead, but you pretend to "know" about this case. Here is my prediction: Kenny will be out of prison by the time you celebrate the fith anniversary of Mike's death. To correct you, Kenny never "confessed" to murdering Mike, he confessed to getting into fight with Mike, panicking and disposing of the body. He only told the police about this after being interrogated for two days, while intoxicated, on drugs from the hospital, in extreme pain, without sleep, without food. Yeah, I am sure you would want to be held to every sentence you uttered in conditions like that. Mike shouldn't have died, he was a good guy. But every story has two sides and you don't know the half of it. I guess we will see in court.

Well "friend of CKRIII" there is one word to wrap you up in... Pathetic
It's nice to know that when you’re a killer you have people who stupidly stand beside you~ Well Kenny I don’t blame your family they have no choice to stand by you... but this guy...
Now you sit here and say that in death its funny how people get glorified- the funny thing is you
I have never sat here for one second and said that Michael was some kind of saint or angel in life, he was far from it, to say that I glorified him into something he wasn’t would have to be a statement made by some one who might have known Michael all their life, but in fact this statement cannot be made, cause you didn’t know the Michael that I knew... nor did I know the Mike that you knew- See the thing is, is that when I was with and Married to Michael for 5 and a half years, he was different from the man you describe (a drug addict homeless man) see when I knew him he was still a man of little and didn’t have much, coming from a past that none of you know anything about, he was just trying to make it in life... We met had our life together and our daughter and during that time was a good provider and father to his daughter, he was happy and doing well in life- but we all must remember no one is perfect and when we split he became depressed and started using drugs again and that is when he made the decision not to get back into his daughters life until he could be the man she deserved in her life... you say that he wasn’t around his daughter because he was a bad man off doing horrible things... But did you know that about 2 months before he was so brutally murdered by your “friend” Kenny, he had been in California, trying to locate us his daughter… and he kind of found us I lost touch with Michael and I tried to find him numerous times, to no avail~ But when he was in California he had found my father and left a message… but my father was on vacation and we didn’t receive the message until after Michael had been on his way back to Montana, to only be killed a few months later by your “friend” I wonder if I had gotten that message a few days earlier that Michael would still be alive, because if he would have found us faster, maybe he would have stayed in Cali with his beautiful daughter and this would have all never happened… but see your “friend” Kenny already has a troubled past, too many DUI’s, DRUGS now a murder case…how sad.
You think that it’s cute to say I don’t know what I am talking about in this case and you will see me in court- well dear you will. See the thing is that when your friend killed Michael,(he did a horrible job so they have great evidence) and since I was still married to Michael at the time of his death- I am his next of kin, and in being his next of kin they tell me what’s going on with this case and since I am here in California and cant be there all the time, I get regular updates, on all the court proceeding, I am in contact with our lawyer ect.
And I have a few questions for you- are you Kenny’s “next of kin” did you get a copy of the records? All the court proceedings, do you know what they found when they discovered Michael’s body? Cause I don’t believe that you have a copy of the Autopsy report or all the info that I have because I am his wife still legally I get to know everything. The sad thing is that you have to hear it from Kenny, the liar, the one who is still alive… NOW THAT’S ONE SIDED!
And honey I can’t wait to meet you in Court let me know who you are. I’d like to shake the hand of a simple man…

I cant wait to stand before a court room and look you and especially Kenny in the eyes as he has to listen to every word that I say he has to look me in the eye and look into the eyes of the man he killed and the eyes of a little girl who’s life he crushed forever (the picture I am bringing is big enough for all to see) cause see there’s this thing it’s called a Victims Impact Statement, it’s a little plea/speech thing I get to do before the judge sentences your “friend” I get to plea in front of the Judge on behalf of Michael, his daughter and I, expressing how I feel and what I feel he should get for what he has done. The judge makes his own decision it’s a way to let the family be heard.
Believe me all I want is justice for my child and her father
Your little “friends” confession is not the only thing they have to hold him down to what he did you say that Kenny wasn’t in the right mind in anything that he did within those days that lead up to the confession and the confession its self, the real truth is, is that he was thinking clear enough when he stabbed Michael to death, then wrapped him up… thinking clear enough to, drag Michael down 3 flights of stairs, stuff him in the back of his car, clearly enough to drive to get gas and smokes before he drove 30+ miles to dispose of Michael, to drive back and then clean up 3 flights of stairs with blood covering them, clear enough to start the laundry and wash the towels and doing all of that while he broke his own arm to keep his self defense story he was making up in his head the whole time he was cleaning up, See I think Kenny is a lot smarter then we all think, he just plays stupid very well.
Do you think that you cut me down by saying these things about Michael thinking that just because I’m in Cali that I don’t know anything well you are soo wrong. People like you amuse me lying to yourself to make you feel that you are apart of something so big this doesn’t affect you at all the way that this affects us this is just another speed bump in your life, while what your “friend” did to us lasts us a life time. I hope that your children never have to feel the pain of loosing you, whether they knew you or not but that’s the thing, Michael’s daughter did remember her father or should I say does remember her father I hope you never have to suffer the way she will for the rest of her life
Please shut your mouth and go on with your life like you really care about any of this… like I said in the beginning, your pathetic continue on with your pathetic life… have fun thinking that Kenny will be free in less then 5- his freedom will come in the hands of God when he banishes Kenny to Hell for what he did… his earthy sentence means nothing to me… murder doesn’t get you into the gates of Heaven… only the pits of Hell and that’s all the Justice that I need, God is the one who will make him pay… and my trust and faith are with Him…
Kenny will suffer plenty… for all eternity! And God will protect My Daughter with his hands…

Kenny was a good friend of mine and is no different then most young men you'll come to know or meet except he's in jail for homicide. Like most people in jail or prison he was a good guy that did something stupid. For any of you to rally round in a lynchin' mob and call him a monster is absurd. The fact is nobody really knows what happened that night. It really hurts me to read the ignorance posted here. What happened to mike and kenny could happen to you. Before you go forming an opinion about what happened ask yourself what you'd do if you were in kenny's shoes.
