My name is Debra, I am from Hutchinson,Ks. My comments about the whole thing : I've known Steve for quite a few years now,he is always "traveling the world" but i have never known Steve to "flip" out like that, I think the other dude tried to hurt Steve and Steve defended himself, it just went way to far. Steve and his girlfriend, Melissa,came to Hutch in April or May,while they were here, for just a few days,they both ended up in jail for whatever reasons. My opinion is "that girl is trouble too,and maybe you need to look at her a little closer". No,I'm not trying to accuse her of anything because I do not know the situation, just look at it all for what it is.It's a terrible thing and I am praying for all involved, but what's right is right.

I'm not sure why they listed his ethnicity in the story headline.

Would you ever read the headline--"Irish American goes apeshit on wife" or "German American knifes child, 6"? What does his being a Native American have to do with the alleged crime?

From Knoxville, TN. I have known Walter Cooper Jr. for 10 years. I have NEVER seen or heard of Walter (or CJ as we have called him since we met)becoming overly angry. If CJ became upset or if an argument started he would remove himself from the situation. He would not return untill the stiuation or tempers had cooled. As for this Steve Avilo he knew what he was doing why else would he be cleaning up when Melissa came home, and then turn on her and try to kill her!

This saddens me greatly as I knew CJ when he lived in Knoxville. Does anyone have any information on the status of this case against Stephen Avilo? I've scoured the web and can't find anything past him being released from the hospital. Any info would be greatly appreciate.

Thanks.
