Whats sicker? The comment I made, or the fact that you are sticking up for a man who ran over a little girl and left her to die in the middle of the road?

I am saddened by all of the hate posted here. Why not take all that energy and use it for positive things like spending time with your family because like Madalynn and Jeff, you never know when your time will come be it death or incarceration?? I have a lot of pain and anger in my heart for both families. Evidence presented in the courtroom showed matching pieces from Jeff's truck. Did anyone ever think the OPD figured out they didn't have the right guy after being so sure and no longer trying to find the right person so maybe they tampered with evidence? If some of you depend on rumors to make your judgements then why not believe that because that's a rumor I heard. If Jeff did it then he has to live with that every day of his life along with knowing that his children think that he could have done it based on the evidence in the trial. I know Jeff and cannot believe that he would have hit Madalynn and leave her to die. God help all of you that have so much anger against someone you do not know. My heart goes out to Madalynn's family who I saw hurting every day in that courtroom. No one deserves to lose someone so young. My heart also goes out to Jeff's family because they have to live their lives without their father. I can only hope they don't have as much anger in their hearts like some of you on here.

Maybe if he would've handled the situation different there wouldn't be so much hate towards him he could've been man enough to stop he left her on the side of the road to die and then went and sold the evidence cuz he thought he wouldn't get caught...hes a killer and too bad for his kids that have to be raised without their father maybe if he was at home wit his kids and not our here drinking and driving he wouldn't be in this mess...jennifer and David lost their child because of this drunk bastard.

You do realize that that isn't really Jeffrey K. who wrote that right?!? I'm pretty sure they don't allow someone to post on topic in jail. People make up names.

I don't know either family. I just know what I read in the paper and heard on the news. I just have to say a few things. What about the piece of light or whatever that they found and the accident site that had pink fibers on it that did not match his vehicle? Is that not a reason to look for another vehicle? The video of him in the drive thru...maybe people don't remember everyone that comes through their line but since the girl said she did remember him is that not a reason to doubt things? I can't really imagine someone going through a drive thru right after hitting someone for fear of someone noticing blood or something like that that would lead police to them. And lastly....the man wasn't out just running around. Numbers of times it has been said that he was moving some things into storage that day. I'm sorry but he was not drunk on 4 beers. People go out to dinner and have a drink with their dinner, meet friends for drinks after work, go to barbques and other gatherings where they have a few drinks. Then they drive home. That is no different then him having 4 beers in 5 or 6 hrs with his friends moving things. That hardly makes him a drunk. Honestly..I feel for both families. Both families have had their lives turned up side down by this horrible accident. In the end nothing that is put on this site or said anywhere else or what people believe or don't believe matters. The fact remains that a beautiful innocent little girl lost her life tragically. May her soul rest in peace.

Well I'm the one who found Madelynn that day. It was a sorry sob that could do that. The only reason he didn't get murder charges is because it wasn't planned, it wasn't out of anger, no weapon was used, and no actual witnesses saw him personally. If all you have is evidence than you can't convict of murder. I wish I had been there at the scene a few minutes earlier. At least justice of some kind has been served and he will pay the rest when he stands before God one day. Only his word proves he was drinking but they have no hard evidence like blood work to prove that either. He was so close to getting away it was sick. Thanks jurors for making the right decision.

You are a complete f****** idiot.... It is a shame that your life is so pathetic that you need the attention to write ignorant shit like that. I see you as being 1 of those socially awkward losers that cracks jokes and nobody laughs at. The 1 or 2 people in your life that you do get to talk to, probably tolerate you in low doses and would not dare to bring you out into public with them. If I were to give you any advice at all, I would recommend that you just walk away from the computer. To be a socially awkward douchebag is 1 thing, to be a blatantly disrespectful, morbid, socially awkward douchebag is just taking things too far. Seriously, do you really think that shit was funny? By the way, spare me of any response that you could possibly generate. My puppy puts more personality and whit into tightly coiled piles on the back lawn then you could possibly muster. Do not think that you know me because of my name, I am not a drug dealer, Nor a boxer.... I am a United Sates Paratrooper who is pissed that you are abusing your freedom of speech. I am also a lifelong friend to the Matlocks.

and by the way, when you decided to enter this conversation and vomit your ignorance for all to see, it neither lashed out at, nor defended the accused family, or the victim's family...... this validates my point that you merely seek attention. Perhaps you should get a dog...... better yet maybe a turtle, something that requires very little effort and yet still offers your means of interaction that you so desperately seek.

ehhh not really i'm just bored. far from socialy awkward. but yeah i am morbid =]
bored huh...... can you honestly not find anything more constructive to do with your time than to spit in the faces of two broken families? It is probably in your best interest to maintain your hidden identity. I am not at all communicating a threat to you, but making comments on a topic as sensitive as this would certainly gain you more enemies than you ever knew possible. It really is sad day

the question of why he wasn't convicted of murder has been answered - there was not enough evidence for that conviction. the thought that opd framed him is laughable. not counting the fact that they have morals, do you know how many people that would involve? how could that many people keep that secret? I understand his family and friends' disappointment, but this statement is way off base.

They convicted an innocent man. They took under 1hour to reach a verdict. That was to enought time to go over the evidence from a five day trial. It is terrible that this girl died but it is worse that he is serving time for something he has been wrongly accusers of.

Really? Everyone has their opinion on the whole situation. I am terribly sorry for their loss but then again i believe they have placed a innocent man in jail for something that he didn't do! I believe that his kids are being targeted and they should be left out of it! Can't believe some people would stoop to such an awful level to direct something like that towards them! They haven't done anything wrong. If he did it not saying that he did but IF he did then it shouldn't be aimed towards his children or any of their family!!!
