I was born in Graham and have lived here almost my entire life. My family knows just about everyone in this town. I have heard tons of rumors, however do not wish to put any of them up here. Because Bridgett Herard is dead. It is very sad how she died. If it had been my family and I was missing on Christmas, they would have called the police then, had search dogs, the rangers, and everything involved within hours. It is sad that she was taken at only 16. I have no idea who she was, I could've passed by her and never knew it. This is sad that people are more concerned with rumors, fighting, how many guys, and who were those guys involved, than tryin to remember that a young girl lost her life. Like I said I didn't know her, but it sounds like to me that she didn't have much of a chance. She didn't have the parents that some of us have. I would like to go to her funeral just to show my support. Do you think that it helps to tell rumors or actually do something? Even if she ever tried drugs or did things that were wrong that does not justify the horrible way that Bridgett was murdered. There are more kids just like bridgett in this small town. Instead of tryin to find out "rumors" why don't we all show the guys that did this that someone cares that she is dead. She will never go to college, get married, see her grandkids, she can't go to prom now. I study behavioral science or you might know it better as profiling. Police officers, murderers, serial killers, sometimes normal individuals, tend to dehumanize the victims. Sometimes its easier to deal with that way, however that doesn't help the victim when people stop caring about HER. Just like you and I, she was a person. Does anyone know: what her favorite color was, what movies she liked, her favorite animal, favorite food, what she wanted to be. The people who did this will go away longer if people show that people do care that this happend. If you do not show now then what is going to stop it from happending again? what if it was your little sister or daughter?

I knew Bridgett for only a short period of time. I had known and worked with her mother before she went missing. There have been a lot of opinions about the life that Bridgett had led. I will say this, her mother loved her very much and talked about her at work often. Teenagers are very hard to deal with, they go off without telling anyone where they are going for days, and then the mother looks bad?

Bridgett was a friend of my daughters. She had told my daughter that she was 18 and my daughter knew that she was a "lost" child and befriended her because she thought she could help her some way. My daughter is grieving still and probably will for some time. She has a picture of Bridgett that was taken about 3 weeks before her disappearance and carries it with her all the time. She can't help but to think if she had been closer to her that she might still be alive.

Bridgett had been to my house only a couple of times. She was like a ray of sunshine, always polite and well mannered. Always said, "Thank you, and Yes Ma'am". She was a beautiful child with skin like porcelain and clear blue eyes. She seemed to be looking for acceptance in everything. Her biggest fault was not going to school, she hated school. I would always be preaching to her that she needed to be in school and not out running around with the older kids. She would just say, " I know." But it has been my experience that kids that age don't enjoy school unless they are one of the "chosen" that have money and popularity. Those kids who come from broken and dysfunctional homes don't find acceptance very easily in our community. Bottom line, if you don't have money, you are a nobody. That is a sad statement.

I have noticed that there is an ad on channel 2 asking for donations to help pay for her funeral, if and when the body ever returns. As rich a town as Graham is it looks like to me that someone would anonymously pay for the funeral, especially since she was a minor. She deserves that and so does her mother. After all, think how the mother is suffering and all the pain and guilt she must be feeling these days. It still was not her fault that Bridgett knew the guys that alledgedly killed her.

As for them, I hope they fry. I am glad we live in the great state of Texas where the death penalty is still practiced, because the scum who did this to this sweet girl deserve to die, just as Bridgett did. Thank God my daughter didn't know them, it could have just as easily been her.

Mary, my heart goes out to you and I keep you in my prayers every night, of all the things you may have or have not done as far as your parenting goes, still does not warrant losing your baby, especially in this horrific way. We are taking donations for you at Graham Oaks, and we all are keeping you in our thoughts.

Bridgett, you touched a lot of lives in your short little life and my soul lights up when I think of you, we all loved you, I wish you could have known that and loved yourself too. Perhaps then you would not have gotten mixed up with the wrong people. You were old beyond your years, and we miss you terribly. You are in a better place now, shine down on us often.

I live about forty miles north west of megargel, i drive through there all the time to get to seymour.. So, this scares me.. I'd love to have more information over this. All I can say is lock your doors, and trust only those who should be trusted. God bless everyone. And, I pray for the poor guy who lost his life in a way such as this.

so Bridgette was one of my friends...and all of you who want to say that no one in graham was trying to find her and that all we were thinking was "how many guys, which guys, and who were they" and that your parents would of had dogs and cops involved within hours. you should choose your words and things you comment on more wisely. We had posters all around town. Everyone was looking for her and callin all of her friends. Ya we could have tried more but what do you think graham police want to for someone like her that had her background of family members. For all they knew she could have ran away or got a bad dose of drugs. But you people shouldt act the we dont care and didnt care cuz i never saw you people tryin to help. All you want to do is talk bout somethin that you dont know ANYTHIN about. so why dont you help all of us and let her rest in peace already
