It’s hard to believe over a year’s gone by
since the day we heard your husband died
to think your own son used that knife
than left him there gasping for life

That you waited so long to call 9-1-1
makes us wonder if you killed him, and not your son
there in the mudroom you two would cry
knowing full well you watched John die

The truth will come out during his day in court
where you’ll sit helplessly watching his life cut short
you’ll be in the courtroom when he’s sentenced to life
for murdering his father with that knife

No matter the fancy lawyers, nor the cost
all you’ll see is that your son is lost
though his defense will be that he was insane
your only vision of him will be in those chains

The boys in prison will now be looking after your son
something you Mom! we think you should had done
but with all that life insurance money, you’re sure to do well
while your little boy…rots in hell.

Your cruel choice of "Navio" as your user name reveals that you know the Okie family in some way... since that name has a special meaning to their family. So that begs the question:

Who are YOU and what motivated you to post such a hateful "poem"?

Anyone who knows the whole story knows that the Okie family are the kindest and most decent people a person could ever know and, from what I have heard, the same can be said of the Mills family. These murders were and are a tragedy. Two good, loving, people are dead. And two good, loving families are left shattered and grieving. The only appropriate response, the only human response, is to show those two families love and compassion.

Obviously, you're as delusional as the slayer. If you knew the Okie's as well as I do, than you would have to agree they're a pretty dysfunctional "family". Not much left of this "family" with 1 already in the ground and another going to state prison for life. But maybe Johnnie's real dad can come visit him from time to time, because we all know John's brother was his real dad.

Wow, that's an incredible assertion. Do you have any evidence of this? This is all I've seen...

I wonder how well you knew them Navio...
Did you go to Johnny's soccer games? Did you watch him build snow forts with his father? Did you go on their boat or on vacation with them? Did you see John sleep on his son's floor while his mother was at the other end of the house because he was convinced she was trying to shoot heroin into him...and did you see, in spite of all that, how much they loved him, and tried their best to keep him attached to the world he was being ripped apart of. It's been 7 years now. 7 years and those are the things I remember most of what the Okie's had to endure. No matter your opinion, to post something so cruel and empty to the people who have lost the most. What was your motivation in writing this? I only stumbled upon this now for an art memorial I am making, and still, after all the years of separation I have had from receiving that phonecall, and having the whole house go dead with grief, I cannot imagine someone so selfish as to inflict purposeful pain onto those poor people for the sole purpose of satisfying their anger. If you were really so close to the Okies as you claim, I dare you to come out of your online facade and read it to them directly...watch the horror streak their eyes. I dare you to live up to your feelings and in return soak up the misery you cause. In this case, it doesn't matter how close we were, who we think the father is, or how much we were hurt by this horrible event. What matters is that we are kind enough people ourselves to not want to inflict torture on others who have been through so much. I hope you read this. I hope you look back on your words and see that they are empty. I hope you re-read your poem and imagine the pain of having lost the love of your life, and watching the decline of your child from the boy who made moose shaped pancakes to a distant monster- and of having people like you in the world to remind them of that pain a year later.
