Since you seem to have a real grasp of the situation, why don't you come clean and let us all know your relationship to this whole thing.
I believe this is some sicko who has no relationship whatsoever. Seems to have plenty of time on their hands and does this for "humorous entertainment"

thats horrible, its a shame, people just try and try to do the right thing. Drug users have no clue the type of people they expose their family to. Unreal rwhat this guy did and was able to do even knowing this family since the 5th grade! This poor woman did nothing but faithfully care for her family.

Funny how the "Family" and cousin have so much time on their hands. Guess collecting welfare doesn't require their full attention.

I gather you are speaking from your own personal experience (along too much time on your own hands).

Now try this: A college educated stay at home mother with a (college educated) husband that enables me to stay home.

Unfortunately, I feel the need to defend my cousin who is unable to defend herself due to jerks like yourself posting uncalled for comments.

I agree with the others asking this: tell us just how you are related to the family or to the story....

What I am guessing is that you are just an evil, hateful, spiteful 'friend' of the murderer that is engaging in this kind of talk for some sick type of personal enjoyment.

AKA Family Lies and Drama. Did you change your name so you could still post these comments without telling us your part in this?

I'm involved in this because your sweet, innocent dealer sold stuff that got a lot of people sick in our area. And a couple overdosed. I feel bad that your cousin died, and I'm sorry. But, it was all preventable. If your relative didn't go dealing to support his own habit, and didn't bring so much dope into our town, then none of this would've happened. And sorry, but it looked like a welfare house, and he looked like a welfare case.

There is absolutely no question that what happened to Martha was horrible and completely undeserved. She should be alive right now. Not so sure about the grandson though. Consider the fact that 8 of the 10 houses in the immediate vicinity are families with young children. Matt had no consideration for these families when he decided to bring drugs (and all the negative things that go with them) into an otherwise quiet family neighborhood.
Cars stopping at all hours, loitering thugs, having to clean up their garbage from nearby lawns, foul language - All regular occurances. And now murder... Suppose Chunga ran into a local child playing near the house as he was leaving... A possible witness and potentially another innocent victim. Could we say that it would have directly or indirectly been caused by Matt's "business?"
Again, most neighbors are truly and sincerely sorry for Martha's loss and especially for how it happened. But at the same time, there is a sense of releif that the crack house is now out of business..

It was nicely written, it was moving and sentimental.

Sometimes bad things happen to good people. I know this family and they did not deserve this act, especially Martha, she lived for her family. My heart goes out to all of the family!
