Justice was served.Now after it is all said and done I hope Henrys famley go after the bar for all the cover up they did and to the Ft.worth police dept for all the scew ups in this case.If they had done there job the right person would have went to jail to start with.The father did not show because he new they charged the wrong person.The police never even looked at the tapes or tested the blood.The cousin even said in court who he thought done it and it was not Rickey.

They were all so quick to judge and put down a good man wasnt they? Yeah everyone was upset after it happened but nobody looked at the facts and everyone was going off what they read in the newspaper. Notice how the newspaper has not put out a story clearing rickeys name. like white settlement man was wrongfully accused or white settlement man found not guilty. I take alot of these comments personaly since i know rickey pretty well and he is no killer. For all of you who think the bells are cowards you must not be from around here cause bell is a household name when it comes to tough guys. rickey did not kill your family member and now that yall know that nobody has gotten on here and apologized to him for your jack ass comments. As for white trash settlement i was raised there myself and i dare anyone to call me white trash. I have a beautiful family of four i work my ass off in the oil field and prob make more money than all of you that have time to get on here and run your mouth. The bells are all hard working down to earth people and this has greatly affected their life. imagine what rickeys attorney fees were for somethin if didnt do. i will tell you that i know and its more than a school teacher makes in a year and he payed every single penny on time and he only missed three days of work in the whole year this was going on. So you who think he is a killer why dont you try labeling him as a hard working american who stands up for what he believes in and try apologizing for your off the wall comments.

The above comment says it all! Hell no our justice system will never admit they made a mistake! Even after the cousin sat on the stand under oath and said that there was no way that Rickey did it and that Rickey was chasing him around the truck while someone else was in the corner of the bldg fighting with Henry, which is where all the blood was found and where he dropped to the ground, the prosecutors still tried to get a conviction. After this long year of having to deal with all the stress and all the money that had to be paid to Rickey's attorney, the Bell's definately deserve an apology that they will never get! Rickey is a damn good person regardless of what anyone else has to say about him!! It's very unfortunate that someone's life was lost, but even after all the testimony and even the cousin (eyewitness) saying who he thought had done it, the family still caused a scene in the courtroom and yelled that Rickey was "guilty". What more do they want? They need to accept the fact that the state went after the wrong person.

I wake up every day without my husband. SOMEONE killed him, he did not just stb himself. The lord is good, the truth will come out one day. Someone's will pay for taking the life of a good and loving husband, father, and all around good man. I was with this man since the age of 15 and i know enough about him to know he did absolutely nothing to deserve his life taken and for his daughters to be without a father. I have faith in the Lord that somehow, some day, justice will be served and whoever is responsible for this brutal murder will pay...weather its here on Earth or rotting in the pits of hell.
