First of all, it is Russ Vannest. If you are going to talk about him, at least get his name right. He used to be an AWESOME guy - probably still is deep down - but that's what drugs do to a person. I hope he gets the help he needs and QUICK! I know his family loves and supports him, but won't be putting up with a whole lot of his foolishness either. They are a good family and their stance is undoubtedly...

He got himself in this mess and he needs to get himself OUT!

He was at one time a really good guy. But over the last year he has lost his mind to bath salts. Everyone that used to know him thinks he needs to go to a rehab and miss how he used to be.

Is the Russ that went to Ripley and graduated around 98. He was a union labor or something a few years ago. Was a really great Guy I could never see using drugs if its the same one I am thinking of.

He would never offer sex for drugs, espesially to a guy. He's an addict , and they steal, lie, and lie some more to get drugs. Bathsalts is one of the most dangerous drugs on the market. U will lose Ur mind and go crazy . Many many cases of this . He needs serious help, and the person that made the comment about him offering oral sex that is a lie, and most likely ur also an addict to

To those of u that say he used to be such a good guy well that is the truth. However getting him help is not going to bring that guy back he is to far gone, to the one that says he would never offer sex for drugs u must not know him, bet u don't think he would rape ne one either huh?? Well guess what he has, and he has did it about 3 or4 times since me! I was his best friend, and just beginning to get my life on the right path and he destroyed it I lost my family for awhile and if it wasn't for having the worlds greatest husband I would be lost, my husband has stood by me and helped me every step of the way, there are a lot of people that don't believe it at first and then he shows his true colors, my life will never be the same thanks to him, and the sad part is is that because of what people were saying about me I couldn't go threw with the charges, and I feel as though it is my fault that it happend to the other girls, I am sorry, but Russ will never be that good guy we all knew and loved, he is nothing but a strung out junkie rapist, that's it, my advice to those of u that trust him around your family or your wives is don't!! At least be careful, my husband trusted him more then anyone when he was out of town he thought Russ would be there for me if I needed him and little did we know he was the person I needed protected from

So was he convicted of this rape? Certainly if you'll tell people about it on here, then you told the police right? I'm not saying your lying, i wasn't there. However the Russ I know would never do that, and thats an awful big accusation to make about someone that to my knowledge has never been charged with rape? Why is that? You say he ruined your life, and raped you, so why was he not charged and convicted of it? There are 2 sides to every story. Russ is strung out, like most of jackson county, but Russ believes in a higher power and has people around him that will help when he is ready. I truly hope he gets his life turned around and can be a good productive man again. If what you are claiming is true, then I'm truly sorry, but is topix the right place to address it? Why was it not taken to the courts?
