R.I.P. Kristin. I miss you and still care. Though i hadn't seen you for a few years, i'm greatful to have you as i remembered , before you were with this scumbag that murdered you. I can't help but feel, that if i'd stayed around , maybe this all wouldn't have happened. Only you and i know what we know. Still, i miss you.

Hey i think i know you, Does the letters "VB" mean anything to you? I remember you and Kristin were friends, and she always said she was a "Groupie". You in Texas now, eh. Yeah , i moved out of Flake County not long ago. Tired of all the BS ,...ya know.

Ahh! you mean "Vanishing Breed" , don't you? Yes , it is i. Btw- I'm not in Texas , that's just my IP show up, i AM a state away from Texas though. You must know me from a few places that Vanishing Breed played at. I'm guessing maybe the Landmark?(Jeez! nobody would even know what i'm talking about if they moved there after that place burned to the ground, LOL!). For awhile there , we were sort of the House band! LOL! Actually Kristin and i go back before that, when i played at the "Charthouse" across the street on the lake. She always told me she was my Groupie too , but contrary to rumor, it was just SAID , never "Done" , if ya know what i mean...LOL! Sure , Kristin was sometimes "Off the Wall" (hell , weren't we all back then?), but she was a faithful friend! and a good hearted person to anyone who truly knew her. I believe that what happened to her , was entails of the whole "Scene" , if you get me. I got outta that whole thing 8 yrs ago when i left , but i'd been back to Clearlake, and saw her, and talked to her about the "so and so" , and she explained that in nonsensical reason , that she couldn't quit right then. Believe me , i was in shock for a few days when i heard that this Cope moron had killed her ,...i got a phone call that explained the "details" before the paper put out , and i was just sickened. Nobody deserved this! Kristin Didn't! This guy can plead "Insanity" all he wants , he should get just what he gave though. He was a disabled former firefighter,..BIG DEAL! His finger wasn't disabled when he pulled the trigger! And Insanity plea bargains??! I suppose "Insanity" is the blanket term used when coming down and can't get more crank??! OH! Let's have pity for the former hero that once put out fires.....F#%k THAT! No! Wait! like someone else said here , FRY HIM! Put THAT fire out, Cope! Then try to cool the fire of HELL after that!...I don't sound too bitter , do i?

That's pretty much a no brainer. I mean, if he'd shoot someone in the face, imagine what kind of "Dad" he was.

Another one for the "He had a bad back" defense... Exactly how much pain was he in, on the 1-10 scale, when he shot Kristin point-blank in the face, crashed the car, then got out and pumped a few more times, then proceeded to take out the rest of the block??! Back pain my @ss!! I knew Kristin well, enough to know that Cope had to have been on crank, no way around it. I have no sympathy for this a-hole, and neither should any of you that are his friends - you're backing the wrong horse...

Yeah, they don't. Crank DOES however make you "put aside" pain, and coincidently, it also puts off feelings, emotions, sometimes even fear and manners too. Sometimes people may get violent behaviour reactions, but a large percentage of that stems from not having the drug when "Needed", and not being able to aquire any - AKA "Coming down". Gee....anybody still think that regular legal prescribed pain meds made him do it??!

For those of you who are talking crap Wilbur is my Uncle whom which i was really close to!
So, before you go talk why don't you realize his family is hurt also. We knew the man before this and he was a great man. He is responsible for his actions and he pleaded guilty so he took responsibility but you've got no right to talk about someone you really do not know!

He pleaded guilty alright...TO A LESSER CHARGE! By the way - I actually DO have the right to say anything! Sure, your family is sad, but you'll all move on. My friend, who was killed by being shot "point blank" in the face, cannot move on, can she?

I am sure once he goes to prison and they find out what he did, prison justice will take over from there....

Her family isnt the only suffering from this.
He has a 15 year old niece who has depression now from it. She crys everyday. They were really close!
