Well now after really thinking about things, I do remenber and knew this cheerleader he was dating on the yard in that 95, 96 years, I remember during the summer he came to my room that nite to talk and he told me of a incident that he and her had gotten into and what he did, I looked at him with this sideaways look and told him you can't be walking around campus slapping chicks, making them strip and do all this other crazy stuff, I was joking but I was like you must wanna get locked up for a long time, but we laughed it of and I emphasized again that I don't hit girls and I ain't tryin to be around a woman beater especially on campus where things travel in lightspeed and I was like you play football so it's worse, he was like I know, I know, I just get so angry sometimes, anyway I was done at the yard in 97 so I guess he just kept on with it, it's just crazy how people turn out years later, I feel like now I kinda seen it coming, but did't know it would get to this, now I see why he really did have any friends, we got close because it was summer school and there weren't a lot of people on campus and we actually were cool, he never asked me for nothing we hung out kicked it, talked and did what dudes do, but I use to see some of my other friends give me this sideways look all the time when we were hanging, I'm not from La so I didn't know about his past like that even though he told me a lot...I use to see his girl on campus and she would sometimes stop and talk to me, just on some regular convo, he seen me a few times but he never questioned me, or asked what did me and her talk about, but i'm sure now that he asked her...

Mr. Arvie's days of physically abusing young women are finally over!! On 4-23-10, this coward was found guilty of 2nd Degree Murder of Tonya Major. The jury convicted him 11-1. He will be sentenced to life in prison on May 5, 2010, in Lake Charles. What a shame that Tonya's promising life ended so tragically and senselessly at the hands of this egotistical, cold-blood killer. He is right where he needs to be...JAIL! May Tonya finally rest in peace, knowing he won’t be able to hurt anyone else.

I know I'm late, but I just recieved the news yesterday. It has consumed my thoughts for the past 24hrs - Im so blown away. My heart bleeds and mourn for EVERYONE effected by this tragedy. My tears flow because of its familiarity. I have read every single post, and hope for everyone, somehow, to find forgiveness and peace in their heart. I know it may be hard, but it must be done for your sake.... I met Ricky while I was a freshman on SU campus in 1996. Yes, he did come off as a gentleman but his arrogant attitude was a complete turn off. After a few failed attempts of trying to get with me, I guess the "real" Ricky came out. I remember telling him "if you dont get out my damn face with your ugly azz." He just laughed and walked away. Whenever I saw him from that point on, I always made myself unapproachable. My friends and I called him "Bighead Ricky" becuase of his cocky attitude & the actual size of his head. Throughout my years at SU and living in Baton Rouge, I'd always heard disturbing news concerning Ricky & his actions towards women. I'm sorry that it took Ms. Major to lose her life for any action to be done. I noticed she was 12yrs younger than him. Women of ur age group & lived in off I-10 & I-12, KNEW to stay away from him...I'm sure because I have relocated out the country is the reason why I'm just hearing of this upsetting news. But Im just as devastated as if I knew of it Feb. 2008... Love life everyone
