You know what, I known the guy that is responsible for this and he wouldn't hurt a fly. Robert was a wonderful man and there is more to this story than what we all know

How dare you be so heartless in this situation. I used to date the victims son and the man that wouldnt hurt a fly is the man that was killed not the monster that you are talking about. There is NO Excuse for a COLD BLOODED MURDER. You should really keep your inconsiderate commits to yourself. As for April and Kathy and Allen, I am so sorry to hear this and please know that we are praying for you.

His name was Allen Parker and he was a great man. No one will probably ever know why. His daughter and I have been best friends for 13 years and I used to date his son too (haha), and my heart breaks for them and Mama Kathy. Rest in Peace, Poppie.

My prayers to Allen's family at this time. My best friend of almost 30 years (Von Myers)was Allen's cousin and he was very nice to me when I knew him years ago.

In response to Liz B...."you know the guy who is responsible for this and he wouldn't hurt a fly". Think on that for a second. If he is responsible for murdering someone I am pretty sure he hurt them. Anyone else wonder what part the woman who lived in the apartment played in the whole situation?

First of all let me say that I am sorry to hear about your loss and I am also sorry that I didnt get to come to Allens funeral, I didnt find out about this untill after he was buried. Kathy, April, Junior, If there is anything I can do just ask, my number is in the book.

No matter what the circumstance's were this was a brutal and heartless crime that could have only been committed by the most heiness and vicious person imaginable. Liz B, you say this man could not harm a fly, I say bull shit. Allen Parker was a very good friend to me and I can tell you this, Allen was one of the best, He probably had his faults just like we all do but he was a good man and would not intentionaly harm anyone unless he were defending himself or his family. Allen had a lot of friends and it wouldnt surprise me if YOUR FRIEND, THE MAN WHO COMMITTED THIS CRIME never gets the oppertunity to complete his prison sentence. I would not be surprised at all if a year or so down the line another prisoner takes your friend out, and IF or WHEN they do take him out, he deserves everything he gets.

Your welcome April, What ever happens just remember that your dad knew a lot of people and he had a lot of friends and a lot of those friends will not take what has happened lightly. Bad things come to bad people, they always get whats coming to them in the end.

She will get what she deserves. It may not be right away but in the end she will have to pay for her crimes and sins also.

Does any one know the woman who lived in the apartment? The paper said she lived there with the guy who was arrested. Were they in on this together or was it an accident or what? Anybody?

I dont think the paper said that they lived together, I think it said that they had a previous relationship

I read a comment from someone on the Asheville Citizen Times website related to this article. The girl that left the comment said that she lived in Deer Park Apartments and Robbie Riddle lived a few doors down from her. I guess it is possible that he had a seperate apartment but I assumed that he lived with the girl that is mentioned in the article. I just can't shake the feeling that the female that rented the apartment where the man was murdered had some hand in the murder somehow. I hope the police investigate her also.
