Kevin doesn't need more rumors being spread, especially by people who know almost nothing about who he was and what happened. This was Kevin's choice. Most of us have excepted it and will always have him in our hearts. There is no one to blame. He was a good person and deserves to rest in peace. If anyone has compassion, leave him be.
THANK YOU.

Well we are graduates of E.M.H.S....we understand that some people don't know the facts about the actual event that took place our junior year 2006. Most people are being ignorant about the situation and posting up lies. We went to school with Kevin Ho, some of us did talk to him and some of us didn't. We felt the pain and grief for those who knew him and were very close to him. This school is a great school and is also a big family, for that reason when this tragic accident happened it hurts us too. We saw his body hanging from the baseball fence as some of us walked to class. We've heard many different rumors about why he did what he did. We're nobody to judge him only god and him know why this happen, there can be many reasons but we shouldn't make our conclusions. We're only human and everyone deals with pain differently and we learn from our mistakes and the mistakes of others. :) R.I.P KEVIN HO

Oh, my. Don't students in El Monte SPELL? How are you going to pass your exams, go on to college or apply for jobs??? I'm sorry to be critical, I'm concerned. Someone there -- your parents, teachers, etc., have to insist on some standards for the sake of your futures.
All I have are good memories of that sweet town in the 1940s and 1950s, when we'd visit our grandparents. Even though it was definitely a working-class town, not even a hint of tragedy or crime among teenagers....
Just a sad fact of the American education system. That, and immigration where proper English is void for the most part. That's also the reason why such crazy stuff happens. Some people from other cultures can't keep up with American life. Poor kid. Gotta feel horrifically sorry though. I know what it's like to be depressed...

Everyone has problems in life, and if everyone killed themselves because of issues or strees this would be a messed up world. Yes, I know life can be hard, but people it can get better if you work threw your issues. Taking your life is no excuse no matter what. If everything was easy everyone would be doing it. Hard problems build character work threw them not kill yourself.

Dear fellow classmates of el Monte high school. When I attended High school in 1986. I can also recall a similiar incident. A boy named Angel Bentiz, he was a very popular student. Varsity football, attractive, letter man jacket and so on..Angel was a neighbor of mine. We both lived on Granada Ave. In El Monte. It's sad to say but Angel died for love. Angel was in love with a varsity cheerleader. She decided that her and Angel weren't right for each other. So she broke it off. DEVESTATED him. So one morning in November, Angel decides to hang himself in front of the autourium. Behind our mascot. They say that Angel's ghost haunts the main halls of the school. That his ghost is often seeing going up and down the stairs in the main hall. Mr. Gillete who was my history teacher, claims to have seen Angel's ghost in the hallway opening his old locker. The ESL student's, whom take their english courses at night, also claim to have seen Angel. I thought It would be interesting to share our story, that also claimed a very good person. So I'm assuming that Kevin's ghost will also be one who ligeries the halls of El Monte High School.

I sympathize will all the studen'ts in the high school who saw this tragic seen of a young fellow school mate hanging lifeless. I also have a story to relate of my own. I also had a fellow school mate who killed himself. His name was Angel Bentiz. He was a varsity football player he had earned his letterman jacket. He was VERY popular. He also took his life. He hung himself in front of our mascot the lion. He was hanging in front of our school auditorium. He was hanging with his varsity football uniform on. They say that Angel's ghost haunt's the school campus. The student's who take ESl classes at nite, claim to have seen Angel's ghost in the main lobbies, opening up his locker, they claim that Angel's locker appears open. In the trophey showcase, in the main lobby,appears to have fallen. They also say the main lobby ;clock stops at time's at exactaly 7;30 a.m. So at this time Let's just all say a little prayer for all the families who are involved in these tradagies!! God Bless all of us. Peace and love fellow school mates.

Please be careful to read between the lines when a trial is about to come to light. Defense attorneys often will manipulate and slant news and interviews in order to vindicate their clients. What they are hoping is that with public sympathy for their clients, the word will get back to the jurors even when jurors are sequestered. Just look back at the OJ trial, and how much public sentiment was slanted to show the murdered victims being vilified as the actual villians in the event. Then, to make it a solid defense, jury nullification was called for, to "send a message to white America". Although very unjust, this is a TACTIC used. Please don't be fooled. I knew Chris, and he was a dignified but happy going individual who loved to live. He participated in sports, was loved by his parents, neighbors, relatives, and friends of all the above. Chris and his friends had a RIGHT to explore life, to make any teenage mistakes and overcome them, and the right to move on to becoming men who take their place as productive wage earners, husbands, and fathers, and who can then influence their younger generation to not make their same mistakes. After all, isn't that what we all, as parents, do? I remember doing some silly things, some dangerous things, as a teenager. Don't you? It's a wonder ANY of us survived. I had friends who wanted to know what it was like to thumb a ride with strangers on Sunset Blvd in Los Angeles, and were thought to have been prostitutes by the men who picked them up. They then would jump out of the car and laugh as the car was still driving. They are lucky they weren't killed. It seems as though every person alive has gone through growing and learning periods. None of us deserves to be killed while going through a growth spurt. Chris and his friends didn't deserve it. Putting the onus on the murdered victims is one of the lamest, most cowardly actions anyone can take. Why don't the ones who DID the killing just say they did and apologize, and take the responsibility maturely? That, of course, however, would show character. They must not have any. God bless Chris, his friends, family and loved ones to be able to weather this latest malestorm of indignity heaped on indignities.

Chris & Metri did not deserve to die, no one should,those responsible for this crime should be punished. Just know that God sees all.I know these boys were caring and loving, they had wonderful futures ahead.They had great parents who love them very much & miss them every minute of the day.Chris & Metri I know justice will be served and those that took your lives will eventually be punished. I know these boys wake up knowing the truth about what they did and the precious lives they destroyed. May you R.I.P Chris & Metri

MY SPECIAL HERO
Christopher Trevizo was a student in my 1st grade class. He was a bright and precocious 6 year-old full of life, with an ever-present sparkle in his beautiful brown eyes. He was extremely well-liked by his peers and very respectful to his teachers.
He would get a kick out of playing practical jokes, such as hiding under his desk when school was dismissed. His family has always been close and supportive and they were very proud of him.
Christopher is my un-sung HERO.
Because of his caring spirit and the generosity of his benevolent family, I am able to write my special tribute to Christopher. I, his 1st grade teacher, am the recipient of a very special gift from Chris.
God Bless Him and His Family.

Those that are still posting here on this forum, clearly do not respect the dead, no matter how they died. So please just let this forum go out. Even if you were defending his reasons or were paying respect. Please just move on. I'm sorry if I was offensive, but understand that it was with good intention. I am one of those that felt that it was necessary to say this. Just by posting here also contradicts what I said earlier, but I felt that I had to have my say in this.

you act like his the only teen in the world's history to commit suicide by hanging himself! I'm not saying that the school should talk about it too the media. What I'm trying to say is that this is something that needs to be taken seriously because thousands of teens commit suicide each year. To put an end to this inclining number we must educate people about how to prevent it. That way people won't "copy" him. I'm not saying lets make a mockery of this incident, but we need to do something more than say "oh, how sad". Nobody will ever know the reason why he did what he did, but we know that it was preventable. I'm talking about educating people so please don't take it the wrong way!!!
whats the use of "educating"people yeah millions of teens kill themselves every year SO WHAT lets not waste our time telling people about useless statistics and "JUST TALKING" to them doesnt everyone see. they need something more. they want to live not die they just dont know how to go about doing it. they don't have the answers but they want them and sometimes they dont know how or who to ask. give them what they want. give them life. and if you cant do that then you have no business saying anything about "educating" people.
