You should not judge this lady, Did she even know that this man had killed a child or even that he was a child abuser or malester, People lie about who they are and what they stand for, until you walk a mile in someone shoes do not judge, I do not uphold or agree with what the man has done by no means, but do not take it out on her.

The Female probably did not know, but you know she had to hear his name on the news and radio that he was wanted. So if she was not the one that turned him in. They should have a bed for her too.

I bet if every sheriff in Tennessee were to visually check the residences listed they would find a lot more that are living with families with children living there that are not thier own along with a stupid individual thats willing to justify that person living there.

Joshua -- Tina's right. We weren't in that household or situation; so we can't say 100% what the status was. Those running from the law ARE some of the best liars ever. He may have been telling her something on a regular basis that was believable. I'm just glad the kids were not harmed.

That may be true but when it's a relative who's doing the hiding then they know and if you are the type of person who would allow someone whom you have no Idea of thier background live with you then you are stupid. You can be a kind person to all around you with out placing those who depend on you for protection at risk. And before anyone says it becauase you're lonly and everyone else ois happy is not an exscuse.

I agree that the woman probably didn't know, I mean I doubt the first thing this piece of trash told her was that he was a convicted sex offender with a taste for children. On the other hand, if you're letting someone stay with you, shouldn't you know a little bit more about them. It's not hard to do a basic background check...google their name for goodness sake (and I know not everyone has a computer, but there are public libraries)! When your children are involved, you have to be overly cautious!

I think this shows one more example of the problems with our justice system. Why was he even out? Drug dealers get more time than rapists and murderers.

i am the woman who matthew welker lived with and i will tell u right now that i had no idea he was a offender or he wouldnt have ever got with me. i love my children very much and would never harm them in any way so before u judge me do walk a mile in my shoes. i had no idea he had a criminal record or that he killed a child.all i can say is that people r goin to think what they want about me and i cant change your minds about that but how many times have u got with someone and thought they cared for u that u googled their name or checked the registry i mean get real those things dont cross your mind but i can tell u now that this experience has made me stronger and more aware and i will be more cautious about who i meet and i wont let them meet my kids for a long time because i have lost trust in everyone and it will take alot for anyone to gain it. i will tell everyone with children to please beware of people because no matter what they tell you or how much u think u know them ask yourself do u really know them.

Clarksville is full of TOP SPOT ciminals, guess they continue to get mints on their pillows at night. Keep returning! Think is could possibly be the political geniuses at work and smacking them on the hand; "now don't you do that again, bad boy/ girl!" Can't wait until re-election. Vote some new blood in office, both county and city.

Something needs to be done to step up the tracking of these sex offenders. I am disgusted by the fact that so many of them do not register thier new addresses when they move. They should be checked up on periodically without any warning. If they are not living where there address is registered, a warrant should automatically issued for their arrest. I have a small child and the way these sexual offenders are punished disturbs me. People spend more time in jail for possession of petty drugs than they do for raping and molesting small children. Where's the justice in that?!

This comment is for the woman who claims he was living with her. Being a responsible parent, you should have looked up his name just to see what came up before you moved him in with your children!! You never really know who someone really is and apparantly you are not such a good judge of character. So, I suggest before you move your next boyfriend in your house with your kids, you should maybe google his name at least to see if he is found in any newspaper articles for any charges against children! I'm just glad for her and her children that he was caught before anything bad happened!

I have just discovered the history of this pos. He is now in Hopkinsville. I can find info on the voluntary manslaughter charges and residing with a minor as a sex offender. I can not find anything about why he is or what he did to be a registered sex offender. Any information would help. Please
