I knew him and his children also....He was a terrible father (if you would call him that) I would call it more of a "sperm donor"....He was a monster when I knew him...If I had only done something when he hurt me, maybe this woman would still be alive and her children would have their mother...Thank god, my kids still have me after the Hell he put me through!!! I wish only the worse for him!!! He does not deserve anything good in his life.

If you think you were his true love your sadly mistaken Randy's only true love was hisself...I too knew Randy for OVER 20 years and he only loved you when you did what he wanted you to do!!!He was an absolutely horrible father...He beat one of girlfriends in front of one of his own children while making the 5 year old child say Bitch and Whore to this poor battered woman!!!Im not one of his nasty exgirlfriends so before you try that one on me I did everything in my power to help this man help himself...which he never did..He was a junkie, a wife beater, a liar, a cheat and a thief...SO if you try to say anything else about him YOU ARE A LIAR TOO!!!I am a classy person and I thought I wouldnt get out of this relationship with my life...My child and I had to hide from this man for years and I couldnt even come back to town til I knew he was in prison....so maybe you should seek pyschiatric help so you can know the difference between good and evil....I told him for years he was eventually going to be held accountable for his actions...TIME TO PAY THE PIPER!!!!

like i said before it depends on who randy was with. he never ask of anything from me just friendship so maybe you are not as classy as you think. i don't believe you could not come to palatka until he went to prison. if you were not one of his exgirlfriend like you say then why hide. he has 5 children are you one of the mothers the one who went for his brother because you couldn't have him huh. i told randy too that all these nasty whores was going to put him in the grave or prison one day and i was right.

I am one of Randy's childrens mothers. And I Never saw his temper, as far as beating women or treating his kids badly. I know he loved his girls and his 2 ex-wifes very much, at first! When our daughter was born with a disability he was at the intensive care every day with her. When it became apparent of her disablity, we didn't hear too much from him. His brothers however, Rusty and Rocky,(who are both passed on now), were there for her and for me the whole 7 years of her life. Don't get me wrong, I'm not praising him at all, I'm just saying what I saw in him. He didn't even attend his daughters funeral. He was a user. But through everything, I'll never regret having Lauren, because she was my world. And at first he used to get all the girls together and we would take them to the landing and the beach and he was good with them, I only saw him once with his son, and he was good with him. I know he didn't financially support them all the time. But I would never say he abused them. And I do agree, he is where he should be. Like everyone says and he once told me, he knew he would die in prison. Sad to know that and not do anything about it. And it doesn't matter what kind of girls he was with no one deserves what he did. And to the girl who says she's "CLASSY", saying your classy is the least classy thing you can do. Other people give you that title, not yourself! I do know one thing without a doubt, his true love was not in Palatka, It was and always will be Julie. I had several issues with her, but she was and will always be, the Love of his Life. She always showed Class!

Bless Everyone involved concerning this tragic accident. Where are your hearts? Where do we draw the line and decide to judge someone without knowing them?
I've known Randy since I was 13 years old...makes for a very long time. Never once did he ever approach me in any way that was disrespectful, lewd, or heartless.
Randy has a great family, and they remain so although some would paint that picture otherwise.
Remember, they do put innocent people in jail, happens all the time. He is fighting for his life; wasting years behind bars does no one any good. Only pain and suffering come from years of being tossed aside, locked away from the world. I do NOT wish prison on my worst enemy! You try to 'exist' inside a concrete jungle, with a 2" pad, food I wouldn't give my dog, and being told when to eat, sleep, shower, exercise, etc.
Randy has a beautiful heart. Plain and simple.
Randy does love others, maybe your situation was different and you parted ways, life happens....go on with your life and quit wasting time with hate in your heart.
Forgiveness for being wronged is where each of you should start. The Bible teaches us thaat we are forgiven AS we forgive....if he wronged you in your life, talk to Jesus, tell him to forgive Randy for he truly never knew how deeply he hurt each of you.
I believe Randy is innocent. I believe Randy has a good spirit, and I believe Randy loves his Lord and Savior Jesus; shoudln't you?

It truly amazes me how people can make comments about Randy stating that "He should have gotten the Death Penalty, that he is a Monster and an Awful Person"..What gives you the right to judge him whether you were with him at one point in your life or even a so called friend? He is serving a Life Sentence for a Crime that HE DID NOT COMMIT! It was a very sad accident that happened and the truth will set him free, it is only a matter of time. Randy has been shafted by the Judical System and his so called friends. If anyone was a true friend you would be there supporting him, thru this difficult time, it has not been easy on Randy, his family, his kids, or his love. He loves and misses all of his kids very much. It is really sad to see that everyone has ditched him the way they have because they think he is guilty, if anyone knew the true Randy you would know he could never commit such a crime. Randy has a Heart of Gold; he is loving, caring, supportive, and would do anything for you and it is not "ALL ABOUT HIM". I have know Randy all my life and has never once done anything to harm me. If I ever needed a shoulder to cry on he was there and tried to make things better. He truly has been a blessing in my life and always will be. I know in my heart that he did not do this so called "horrible thing". Randy is fighting for his life and to prove his innocence and he will be back home where he belongs. The Truth will SET HIM FREE!

I have to agree with Gracelyn I have know Randy since the 80's. We were a half way item at one time and yes we had issues as all realtionships do but he was not a violent mean person and I gave him alot of reasons to be. I just seen this on the internet and I will be praying for his relaease and for the truth to set him free.

The mroe I thought about this the more I believe Ransy is innocent. I read on one comment that Julie was the love of his life that is very true I knew him before they were married and after. He was not always good to her but he loved her dearly. He and I were together before he had children and he was great with my 8 year old son. They went to the beach together and hung out daily I just cannot fathom he deliberatly took another person's life. I also read that his 2 brothers have passed away in case anyone would like them I have pictures of Rocky and there parents just let me know. I may have some of Randy and Rusty as well I would have to check.

Okay well I dont really have any desire to bash someone, because no matter what was done to me by this man his family was always extremely wonderful to me...I see how some of you say that he was in fact a wonderful and loving person...well he was when and if things in his life was going easy...Im not going to even touch upon if I think I have class it doesnt matter however the facts are this...Randy beat me when I left him...He kidnapped me and beat me for six hours he raped me...saying if he couldnt have me no one would...My brain was so swollen that they had to cut some of my skull to release pressure on my brain ..he broke and cracked four ribs, he robbed my sister while she was sleeping and pawned her belongings for cocaine money to shoot into his arm..Is this a monster? you decide...what he did to our child was like a bad tv movie...My heart goes out to his family with whom I speak to often...opinions dont really matter just the facts that he was an abuser, a junkie, a thief, and a liar, he could be a nice friend if he wasnt emotionally involved...he was funny, and he knew how to laugh...now you have the facts you decide...

Exacly! That 5 year old child was in fact me. But you forgot to add that after that happened, he broke down the door and made me run with him( with no shoes & a tee shirt & underwear) from the police. To any of you people who say he is a kind hearted person, you are sadly mistaken. He is my own father & i hope he has a hell of a time in prison!! What he put my mother & i through was terrible. I could never in a million years call this man my "dad". I still to this day wonder how a monster came from such a wonderful family.

I WANTED TO RESPOND TO BOTH THE NEGATIVE & THE POSITIVE COMMENTS LEFT ON THIS SITE, OF WHICH I HAD NO IDEA WAS IN EXISTENCE.
FIRST, THANK YOU TO THOSE OF YOU WHO RESPONDED IN A POSITIVE FASHION... I APPRECIATE ALL YOU SAID!
SECOND, TO THOSE OF YOU WHO RESPONDED IN SUCH A NEGATIVE & SOMETIMES TERRIBLE FASHION...LET ME SAY THIS, I FORGIVE YOU." FOR IF YOU FORGIVE MEN WHEN THEY SIN AGAINST YOU, YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER WILL ALSO FORGIVE YOU. BUT IF YOU DO NOT FORGIVE MEN OF THEIR SINS,YOUR FATHER WILL NOT FORGIVE YOUR SINS." NOW I ASK YOU PLEASE FORGIVE ME OF WHATEVER HURT OR HARM YOU FEEL I HAVE DONE TO YOU.KNOW THAT I DO REGRET MY PAST ACTIONS AND THE CONSEQUENCES OF THOSE ACTIONS. BUT ALSO KNOW THAT EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOUWAS, AT ONE TIME, DEAR TO ME AS I MUST HAVE ONE TIME, BEEN DEAR TO YOU.
CAN I EXCUSE MY ACTIONS OR JUSTIFY WHAT I MAY HAVE DONE! THE ANSWER IS NO! YET I ASK YOU ALL THIS, WHICH ONE OF YOU IS FREE FROM SIN OR ERROR? i DID DRINK AND USE DRUGS, NOT AN EXCUSE, THE TRUTH! WHEN ANYONE, NOT JUST ME, USES DRUGS OR ALCOHOL, THEIR MENTAL & EMOTIONAL PROCESS BECOMES CONFUSED. HAS ANY ONE OF YOU DONE SOMETHING YOU WISH YOU HADN'T WHEN YOU DRANK TOO MUCH OR GOT HIGH? AGAIN, I AM NOT EXCUSING MY ACTIONS, BUT ANYONE WHO TRUELY KNOWS ME AND KNOWS MY HEART, KNOWS I AM A GOOD PERSON. NOT PERFECT, MIND YOU, BUT GOOD HEARTED. I HAVE BEEN STRAIGHT AND SOBER FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW AND CAN LOOK AT MYSELF WITH NEW EYES. I SEE WHAT I ONCE WAS, NOW AM, AND HOPE AND PRAY TO BE.
TO MY CHILDREN, KNOW THAT I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU MORE THAN I CAN EXPRESS IN WORDS. I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED YOU, BUT AT TIMES COULD NOT EXPRESS THAT LOVE. AGAIN, I ASK YOU TO FORGIVE YOUR DADDY! I CAN'T CHANGE THE PAST, I CAN ONLY PROMISE YOU A BETTER TODAY. WE CAN ALL WORK ON TOMORROW. I JUST WANT TO SAY, NO MATTER WHAT YOU MAY BELIEVE ABOUT MY CASE, THE TRUTH WILL ONE DAY BE KNOWN. I MAY HAVE BEEN MANY THINGS, BUT I WAS NOT, AM NOT, AND NEVER WILL BE A MURDERER! FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN ME, THANK YOU. FOR THOSE WHO DON'T...WELL, ONLY TIME WILL TELL, AND I WILL BE VINDICATED. I THINK THAT EVERYONE WHO DWELLS IN THE PAST IS CHEATING THEMSELVES FROM TODAY. I'VE BROKEN SOME HEARTS IN MY PAST WITH THE WAY I'VE TREATED PEOPLE, BUT MY HEART IS BROKEN ALSO. I UNDERSTAND SOME WANT TO SEE ME PUNISHED FOR THE WAY I'VE TREATED THEM, BUT THEY NEED TO LOOK INSIDE OF THEMSELVES FIRST. PLEASE DON'T JUDGE ME BEFORE YOU HAVE ALL THE FACTS . I DON'T HOLD ANY ILL WISHES TOWARDS ANY OF YOU, BECAUSE THE BIBLE SAYS "JUDGE NOT LEST YOU BE JUDGED." TO THOSE WHO WISH BAD UPON ME, YOU ARE AND STILL WILL BE IN MY PRAYERS. TO MY PARENTS, THANK YOU AND I LOVE YOU. IN CLOSING, LET ME SAY THAT I AM INNOCENT OF THIS AND WILL CONTINUE TO FIGHT FOR MY FREEDOM. THIS WAS A TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE ACCIDENT, BUT AN ACCIDENT IT WAS.
JUST TO UPDATE YOU ON MY CASE, I SENT A MOTION TO THE JUDGE CALLED "INNEFFECTIVE ASSISTANCE OF COUNSEL." THIS MOTION IS ABOUT WHAT MY PUBLIC DEFENDERS DID WRONG, OR DIDN'T DO AT ALL. THE STATE CONCEDED TO THREE OF MY ISSUES. NOW IT'S UP TO THE JUDGE TO DETERMINE IF THERE IS ANYMORE OF MY ISSUES TO BE GRANTED. EITHER WAY, I WILL BE GOING BACK TO COURT TO SEE IF I CAN GET A NEW TRIAL SO THE TRUTH CAN BE TOLD. I ASK THAT YOU KEEP ME AND MY PARENTS IN YOUR PRAYERS.-RANDY

I find it so amazing that a person can do some terrible things to other people (even those he says he loves), be sent to prison for his crimes and suddenly he finds God. Then he wants everyone to forgive him for the sins he has done., Well, DA, the good Lord was right there watching as you and the devil were committing those terrible crimes so HE knows. So who do you think you are fooling? Good luck with those ISSUES of yours!!! Bet you only got straight and sober when you were put behind bars. Being in jail is truly a sobering experience.

And just one more thought! How do you rate having access and the use of a computer? Do felons in prison have the luxury of time on a computer or do you know something on someone that you, through your Christian mouth, threatened to tell on if you weren't given time to compute? You can thump your Bible all you want but you are not fooling the ONE that matters!!

My prayers are with your poor parents. I can only imagine their frustration and humiliation brought to them by you...BUT you are their kid and they will stick by you. I just hope that all you've done to hurt them doesn't put them in an early grave.
