I hope for HIS sake she lives. We're talking about a chick who kick the *hit out of her own grandmother in High school. This isnt June Cleaver, people. She hit him, threw something at him, or tried to run him over 1st-I guarantee it. They both need serious help.

I know nothing of the case or the people. I am only commenting as the end of the article states that two spokeman from Yale Hospital did not confirm that Jessica was there basically.

The numberous restrictions in place do to various regulations (HIPPA for hospitals and doctors, Gramme Leach Act...) Makes it so that no information can be shared. If the hospital even said she was or was not there it would be a violation. When you enter a hospital now they ask you if you can be listed as a person under their care, if you want medical info released.... If you can't answer these questions they can't list you as a person under their care. 9 times out of 10 you can a hospital today and ask about your self and they won't say if you are or are not there!

What would anyone do if they walked in on their spouse screwing someone else? IF he did this, he was wrong. But I also think banging someone else while your dating or married is also inexcusable. Live by the sword, die by the sword.

Why doesn't the "News Crimes" print the name of the boyfriend in the article too? I wonder who they are trying to protect.Does anyone know if he lives on Rose Lane?

I believe this is the same girl that got arrested in High school for coming to a basketball game drunk as a skunk and hitting the Vice Principal's car? Ring a bell anyone?

She's had issue upstairs for a long time. I wouldn't doubt if she paid someone to do this to her...so she can get "even" with Brian. Her's screws have always been loose...

I hope the truth comes out in court.

Read it again. They are divorced. Neither has any ownership claims on the other's sex organs.

Im glad to see that Im not the only one who remembers who this chick really is. The last article printed made her out ot be 100 lbs and helpless. My memory paints a very different picture. I ve known Brian since we were in grade school. This just doesn't add up in my opinion...

id be pretty pissed if i was trying to work things out and come home to find my signigicant other w/another person. besides that, if he did beat the crap out of her why was her face only red? wouldn't she have other bruising or cuts or bumps? all they say is pancreas pains. You dont even need your da mn pancras.

both people sound a little crazy. seriously divorced by 26? how long were they married for? there must've been a ligit reason for the divorce.
maybe the other man beat the sh*t out of her cuz she lied about her ex? and she could just be blaming it on him.

oops..spell/grammer check (what ever happened to the edit function on these comments?)

Let me rephrase what I said:

This AH Lies through his teeth. He gave her the drugs he claims she took and the alchohol. And he has admitted to hitting her that day. And he is the one who beat her almost to death. She is like 5 foot 3 and 90 pounds. He is like six foot one and over two hundred pounds. I know he did it and it will all come out in court soon enough. He is a liar and a wife beater. Personally I am hoping he gets off so he can run into a real man. That will land him in the hospital in agony for three months. Fes up Brian you did it. At least be man enough to face the music you freakin coward.

You have got to be from the dark ages. She didnt do it to herself. I know for a fact he did it. It will come out in court.Stop talkin out of your a~~ what if that was your sister, friend or mother. You cant justify beating somone almost and maybe to death for anything. If you think you could do this also maybe you need to check into Belvue yourself.

Once again someone talking out of there A~~. She didnt touch him. She didnt even want to move back in with his sorry A~~ but she felt obligated. These are the facts. He beat her almost to death. What part of that dont you get?
