Nobody deserves to die like that. I don't understand how people that have no connection to this family or this tragedy can have such terrible things to say about an innocent woman. The negativity of these comments is astounding and really clarifies where the hate to commit a murder comes from.
I am so sorry for your loss and my heart is with you all.

actually, you're wrong. most of smithtown is on heroine.. it's true
Maybe you and you're graduating class, but my graduating class there were many more clean people than drugged up ones. Again, its not about whos on drugs and whos not, its just the point of NOT generalizing and saying everyone because CLEARLY everyone, is not on heroine. Because if everyone was on heroine, I being a smithtown graduate would have at least come in contact with it, which I have never. So chill out, and realize that not everyone is on drugs.

after 2002, all the younger kids started getting involved in the bad stuff. smoking weed is a thing of the past, apparently now they've gotten much more serious. it's a shame, and that closed-campus will not help.

Save the tax payers the cost of a trail and housing this loser, just put him to death now and be done with it.
He clearly has nothing to offer to society. Nice parents he must have, hope they are proud of the job they did.
That is completely uncalled for. It is not his parent's faults, I'm sure they did the best they could do. It's a lot harder than you think to shelter your children from the problems and hardships in the world. I'm sure you've never done a damn thing wrong, and you've always obeyed your parents. It's a terrible thing that happned, don't get me wrong, but the only one to blame would be HIM. He has his own mind, his own morals and i guess, in some sick world this is what he thought was right.

You're all so completely clueless, it's funny. Most clueless are "The Family" and people pretending to speak for various players in this pathetic little drama. You're all practically masturbating to the excitement of finally having some new gossip to discuss.Each and every one of you is complicit in this and you're all going down. I think you're starting to get scared you own social worlds are going to come tumbling down.Oh, and The Family needs to stop protesting. Matt's not in hiding for safety and recovery. He's trying to remain out of jail by staying away from Suffolk County investigators. Lying fools.

Go on, question me again. It's a dare.
I am Matt's cousin, we grew up together. So I was thinking maybe you should really reconsider stating your weak and fickle comment and also just sit back, calm down, then remind yourself that you know nothing and if you think you knew something, thinking can get your mouth in a lot of trouble. Thats what your conscience is for which is consequently absent in your case. I give you the highest amount of assurance that you will never... ever be righteous. I don't mean to judge but I am certain your purgatory wont be as forgiving if you "get off" by trying to make grieving poses for family's difficult. At least you and I know that you wouldn't have the nerve to speak a single syllable that you have wrote in person to me or my family and you have my word on that. You'll just continue to cower behind your computer and talk talk talk. That goes for anyone who made the decision that disrespectfully assuming and bringing up anyone in my family as a negative was a "good idea" for that I hope god can forgive you like I so gracefully have done. However most people have posted very positive, nice, humble comments that I thank you all for you love and support. I'd like to also take a minute to say that my "gamma" was the most caring, loving, selfless, and the one woman you can count on to make you smile every time you see her or think of her. I cannot stress enough how much I miss her as we all do. I hope and pray that no one has to go thew anything relatively close or worse than something so horrid. Yes their is plenty of evil in this world to do completely repulsive disgusting things that happen every day of our lives to people everywhere. If only you could just look thew her eyes at any point and see how beautiful life is, all that evil just fades if only for a second it would still change your life and how you live it.

Drug dealers and those who harbor them get no sympathy from me. There's absolutely nothing righteous about it. It's just the truth.

Oh, and you need to move along. This topic was so yesterday.

Don't know who you're challenging to talk to you mano-e-mano. Or why.
If you are challenging those turds who have posted gratuitously mean things about Martha, then I can't blame you.
But if you are trying to defend a drug-dealer (related or not), then you are wrong and you should understand why the whole neighborhood would be against you. Truth is none of this would have happened and Martha would still be alive, if there hadn't been drug dealing activity in that house. You can't deny that. If you invite the quick cash dealing brings, you also invite everyting else drugs bring - including violence and murder. I hope you understand that Matt was not held in very high regard by his neighbors because of his "business" activities. Chunga could've stumbled onto an innocent neighborhood kid on his way out of the house. Another potential victim? Another casualty of Matt's "business?" If that happened, would you be willing to meet that kid's father mano-e-mano?
Matt brought this into a quiet family neighborhood with no regard for the people around him whatsoever.
All decent people in the neighborhood are sincerely sorry for what happened to Martha, but at the same time most are relieved that the crack house is out of business. Nothing personal...

My grandma was so full of hope, that she wouldn't give up on my cousin and she gave her life so he can live. As horrible as this all is we as family and friends must understand that Martha my grandmother would have wanted us to forgive Matt no matter how much it takes out of us to do she would have wanted it...

Having gone through all the strings on this story and all the respective posts, it's easy to see you have a close, tight-knit family and that Martha was a well-respected sweet lady.
To be honest, I initially thought she was complicit in Matt's activity or at least turned a blind eye. Your family's posts about Martha helped change my opinion to a much more favorable one.
I understand blaming Matt doesn't bring Martha back, but there is a lot of latent resentment toward him for dealing drugs in this neighborhood to begin with. Families with young children practically surround that house. This has to be acknowleged and addressed before the neighbors would even consider opening their hearts to him. If he has a conscience, he will carry a heavy emotional burden for the rest of his life (not to mention physical scars).
I hope he turns things around for himself following all that has happened. If he cleans up and is off drugs/stops dealing for good, then we can say Martha is smiling at him from above... If he reverts back to his old ways, then what did she die for? Only Matt can answer by his actions going forward...

I respect and appreciate your understanding of our statements and I thank you. I just hope that any other anonymous people read and can at least try and understand this whole mess in our eyes. I will admit I may have said obvious (in the moment) things that I and anyone would regret in this and other topics made about my grandmother. I also admit I do get heated when it comes down to people passing threw with their so called complete comprehension and just assume what they want without knowing anything without feeling the least bit bad because they figured it out all on there own. Well I certainly thank this person for writing something that sums up a whole lot without taking sides or being immature about it. This may be the one night out of the whole week that this site hasn't kept me up all night thew to the morning. THANK YOU :)

another funny thing is the entire time matt was selling drugs out his house, which wasn't just a short period of time, none of the family had any idea when it was disgustingly obvious, and i know you were his "family," but be honest with yourself, you guys actualy saw matt like once a year and that was if you could even get him out of his room when you came. Martha was an absolute sweet heart and didn't deserve this in any way. but than when the family come around after the fact saying dont talk smack about the family. nobody really is talking smack about any family just matt and chunga. What they did was wrong, and it lead to the death of a good innocent woman.
Where were you guys when matt needed you the most. NOT around. so don't sit their going on like you actualy had the slightest clue in hell what really was going on. you don't.

(YOUR QUOTE) "Oh, and you need to move along. This topic was so yesterday". Either do you or so it would seem.
Unlike you know-it-all types, for the family it is not 'yesterday's news' it is about the loss of someone we all loved and is still hard to grasp. Also hard to grasp is the insensitivity of that fact.
This is not about a high school fight that everyone has 'witnessed' or 'heard about' and moved on from but yet supposed 'spectators' keep adding their own (negative)two cents worth.
It is about a loss of a life, a real human being that we all loved. Why don't you get over yourself and move on instead of having if it was so "yesterday's news" to you. What exactly do you get out of it by doing so? Are TRYING to hurt those who loved Martha? By now, we all know the situaion surrounding her death - we do not need it to be rehashed. We would now like to see see the trial over and done.
God Bless all those who have shared their kind words and love for Martha.
