This is horrible, I cant even comprehend what it would take to beat my mother with a bat?? Sociopath comes to mind though. Kid could not have any real emotions...sad. But that is not an excuse for murder.

The story does not give details. Only that the kid beat his mother to death, so who knows if the mother was nice or not?

From what I know he was a pretty good kid but he had a bad temper. She was a friend of mine. She was very kind and sweet. A good mother too from what I saw. There are only two people who know the truth and know what happened. One of whom resides in heaven. So please give a little respect to the deceased. Please don't come on here with accusations about people you don't know.

I can understand that there's never a reason for murder. However there's always a sign for population control, just not against mothers who've done nothing to deserve it.

I didn't see accusations as much as I've seen speculations so far.

I wasn't saying anybody on here was putting out accusations. If you look at the articles in the other towns about this it is nothing but accusations. That really upsets me.
I understand nobody on here is accusing anybody of anything. Please don't take what I said the wrong way. Sorry

Dillon is my boyfriend. && his mother was not nice. Not at all. She may have put a front on for others but it changed behind closed doors. No he's not a sociopath or crazy. He's an amazing loving caring guy that did something bad. The state failed him. The system set up to help kids who were abused did no good. It was proven which is why his sentence got reduced and he could be coming home to me sooner than expected! So don't start talking about something you know absolutely nothing about because I will stand up for this man as long as I shall live !

Make excuses for this nut job just because he's white. Who knows who his next victim or victims would have been. Not much will be said about this animal because of his race. when will the comments come about sending this heartless hoodlum back to England

Excuse me? Do you know him? Do you know how bad of a mom she was. God bless her. Hat kind of system leaves three children with an abusive mom who barely had any food. Who let's their 13 year old son care for two young kids instead of being out having a childhood. Dillon is no where near perfect but bit*h neither are you. Don't judge someone you know absolutely nothing about. I'm not makin excuses for him. He is the absolute love of my life and i woulnt be afraid of him. He stands up for the one he loves and in this instance it was his little brother and sister. There would not have been any other victims as you put it. But really in this situation dillon was the victim of an abusive parent. He is not a violent person. I know this. I can say this because I actually know him.

I know that apparently the mother was extremely abusive physically and emotionally. CPS had a case either opened a few weeks before that incident or had just closed one. He was left to take care of the younger siblings majority of the time, with no food in the house.

And just how sure are you that the roles weren't reversed? That HE put on the loving facade then behind closed doors changed into an animal? What exactly was the reason he murdered his own mother??? If I have to offer my apologies I will gladly do so, but the person that you are describing has no way to defend herself as she is laying in the dirt and unless it was proven that she had abused them you are being very disgraceful to the deceased party. Even with abuse that is what law enforcement is there for, not to have to haul away a son for beating his mothers brains in. Just make sure you know the true side of your boyfriend, if he can hurt his own mother that way how can you assume you will be treated any differently????? I'm not trying to belittle you in anyway, just make sure because you could end up being injured or worse... Also I had a trying, difficult childhood but you don't see me murdering my family members. Thats a different story but i truly hope you make the right choice (were you with him before this occurred?) and please do not disrespect someone, instead let them rest in peace.

Do u people not read the paper. The system failed him and his siblings many times over several years. I do not condone what he did but it wasn't for fun or to just get rid of his mom. I feel sorry for him

His mother had a lot of issues I know this personally. He went thru alot and that's all I will say. She loved her children but theres so many issues she had that pushed him. She was emotionally unstable. She took it out on random men. Til noone was there to take it out on
