Omg, people do not get it! I am not yelling this at anyone and if the shoe was on the other foot and Chad had been killed and Jamie had done it he should suffer the consequences of his actions too! I in no way said Jamie was a saint, I actually said the opposite! That is why I didn't associate myself with that part of my family bc I don't agree with their decisions and choices! I dont understand why it is thought that I am pointing fingers...all of these guys were far from saints and I just think that if the truth never comes out, then everyone will have their day of judgment. I wont respond anymore because I feel like I am being attacked for giving my opinion and stating what law enforcement said......someone got killed, whether it was my family or one of the other men, I would want justice for whoever was killed....I am not taking sides because I KNOW how they were.....

And Chad wasnt? Yes people take the wrong path in life, but does that mean they deserve to be murdered? People have no respect...
I agree with you facts. Hangman needs to give Mr. Reed a little recongnition for who he really is(a drug addict)not just Jamie. All the pointing fingers of what these people were doing is really not the issue. No one is being charged with possession of drugs although Mr. Lovelace had a prior felony drug charge. Problem is there is a 30 year old man dead and no one is being charged with murder.

No, please do not say another word about who you think are redneck, hillbilly, trash. You are throwing stones of course while living in a glass house--the reason I am saying this to you--take notice to the way you spelled "sense" < this is the correct way but that is not the way you spelled it > "sence" Now you tell me who the redneck, hillbilly, trashy, no spelling, freak is around here? That is correct "for real" It is you!!

Wow, is this not a site for opinons?I dont think hollywood could make a story like this up! A tragic sad story for all involved! Another sad statistic for burke co! I truly feel for the family cause as an outsider hearing the story 2nd hand I have heard nothing positive about the victim, and that is truly sad that this is this guys legacy. Granted we may never kno the real truth of what has happened but this guys reputation more or less speaks for itself. All the way around its a truly sad story that his life had to end this way!

Why would someone who is close to being the DA be here on this forum commenting on an ongoing investigation. Can you say illegal, Mr. Close to DA?" I don't believe you are close to being the DA or you wouldn't be that stupid, oh wait, you're close to being the Burke County DA. You just might be that stupid!!!!!

I will make this short and sweet. Close (speaking of the DA) meaning close enough to know this case is ongoing. It is my freedom of speech to comment on an ongoing case, especially when the comments I have made are no big secrets, read the article in the News Herald like I did and you will understand that what the investigator saw when he got to the scene is the reason anyone in their right mind would know this case is far from being closed.

Wow, just state'n facts! I've never stole, put a needle n my arm, snorted anythg up my nose, smoked outta a pipe(or anythg else),or take pills! But wat i do is live and teach my kids by xample! I do kno "of" this family, and if the victem mother would have mayb done the same the out come here coulda been different! So yes i do teach my kids that they are better than anyone who choses to throw their lives away w/drugs and violence! Sugar coat it how ever u want, that is wat this poor guy did! Hopfully they will c the error n their ways, and change....untill then trash is all they will b, cause thats wat they choose to b and associate themselves with! static'ly this poor baby dosent have a chance, the odds are stacked against him, but hopfully he will break the cycle! There are things called rehab that can help them all do so, and medicaid will pay for it! We all have paths we choose in life, its all about how u choose to live! So there u go....thats who i am, some one that has chosen the correct path!!....and by the way i wasnt judging i was give'n my opinion, thats wat this site is for...rite?

I agree with whoever put " God Knows" and God will do the judging and the punishing. As for me i have known all three VERY well and they were all friends, like brothers. The two living are going crazy over what happened but under the circumstances what do you do? Let them kill you and yous? What would you have done. I love Jamie with all my heart, and the others two. but all these rumors are getting way out of hand. There are certain people that know what is going on, and like i said before.... God knows-SO LET HIM BE THE JUDGE> A sin is a sin is a sin, and judging others is one of the biggest unless you have walked a mile in there shoes. They have all had rough lives and not because they wanted them. May God Bless the two living and help then get thru this tragic time for the, and may Jamie rest in Peace! JAMIE LEE CHERRY_Always on my mind and forever in my heart.....
