Keith Marcus Barrett, was my best friend, and I miss him a lot, I dont understand why this had to happen to him, i dont see why any body would want to hurt him, I knew him very well, I dated him for about 2 0r 3 years, on and off, and I just dont understand, he was a sweet caring loveable person, and I will forever love him, to his family and his younger brother, I love you Trevor, dont do nothing stupid.

This is a very tragic situation. I can't belive that someone would do this to a young man that was only 17 years old. You go on with your life thinking all is well, and then you see the news or look at a newspaper and see something as horrific as this. Why isn't something being done about this? Why is Taylortown,or even North Carolina letting this kind of thing go by without punishment. They say they want to stop crime, but It doesn't really look that way now does it? I don't know who Keith Barrett is, but to his family I send my regards.

This was a very shocked moment for all of us. I knew his cousin chazz and A.j. whenever i read this in the news paper last year i cried about it. all these young teens are dieing and likeMischa said no one is doing anything about it and that is very sorry people need to step up and take control. i heard about when the boys was fussing at the game that night and thien the next morning he was gone.to this day i still have the news paper.I have three matter fact i heard that he was so sweet and nice i know it was hard to let go but i send all my sorrows and prays to his whole family.GOD BLESS!!!

Keith was my nephew and someone knows what happened. The family wants closure. lET THE AUTHORITIES KNOW. It might be a lesser punishment than what GOD may give. To the person. I forgive you but you will be held accountable to God and possibly man.
