I have known both families for years. The Weavings are well known through the community. The Eisenbachs unfortunately did a terrible job raising this monster. He has been in trouble since grade school. He was tossed out of the service due to discipline problems and lack of self control. I hope he gets life in prison.

Michael Weaving beat my son and broke his jaw after some underage drinking and an arguement over a girlfriend. We reported it to the police and a few weeks later the Southbury Police showed up at our home with a warrant for my Son's arrest. After thousands in leagal fees and medical bills the case was dropped. To our knowledge Weaving was never charged in the matter.
When we heard this in the news we were shocked and dismayed. I can only feel for the Weaving family and pray the Michael Weaving is now at peace.

WOW arent you so quick to judge. I grew up with David and his family and know they did not raise a monster. Those who dont know the truth shouldnt throw stones in glass houses.

I think it is possible for someone in this community to know David in a context beyond the alleged actions that put him where he is today. My wife and I pray for David and the three families that are devastated by this. Everyone in Southbury suffers for the thoughtless and vicious acts committed on that strange night.

Regardless of David's character, he will be judged for his actions specific to this event and none other.

I hope whatever David has to say for himself, that he may get to a point where he is at peace with himself. Whatever kind of person he is, his life has now profoundly changed.

I was upset that many people refuse to talk about the rampant drug and alcohol abuse. In my mind, this is a tragedy of three lives, each of them living on a fine line, not recognizing in themselves a tipping point between despair and rage. Enter some pills washed down with a few beers and weed (if that part of the story is true)... and these three friends-of-circumstance led themselves down a road of destruction for their family, friends, and community to somehow deal with. But who knows? Friends may think they know - but there were only three people there that night who would be able to account for the FACTS... and only one is left to explain it all. I don't expect that anyone will ever know all the facts about the events that put two young men 6-feet under and a third who probably wishes he was there, too.

May God grant these people the peace they so desperately need.

To all of you.....I was david's neighbor for 13 yrs on pomperaug trail. My family and I moved to the neighbor hood in 1997. My brother was the same age and in the same grade as David Eisenbach. David sure did have a hard home life, as with soo many other homes in this town. I find Southbury to actually have a lot more homes like this than people will admit and thats why this town is soo screwed up! David tried to make the best of what he was handed in life as well as Mike and Tom curley! It is sad how this happened and at times I find myself sickened by the actions BOTH Tom curley and David Eisenbach displayed. Unfortunately we all have to face the harsh reality that this does have a lot to do with the homelife. Am I blaming his family for what he has done.....NO But maybe this wouldn't have happened if people werent so selfish and actually took signs that these three young men were giving everyone...instead we all turned our heads and called them every name in the book "Losers, junkies, Low lifes, etc." I also blame the school system for a lot of the troubled kids and teens in this town. Dont let them fool you that they are a great school system....They only take so many troubled kids into the special ed class rooms or counseling because they dont want to be seen as a troubled town or school system, they dont want to be "embarrassed" by the kids that do need the help the most.....and we call this a good school system? Get serious now.....I feel they would be better if they gave the kids that need the most attention some help because they are crying out and when no one comes to lend that helping hand....well, after awhile they give up on themselves and later give up on their life's and everything in it! So lets stop pointing the fingers at them and point them at ourselves for being so selfish and turning our cheek to the ones who need us most in life and maybe these things that can rip us all apart later, on wont happen anymore!

dave and mike were both in the special ed program in high school, and the teachers spent a lot of time helping them both. what is the point you are trying to make with the high school? they were accepted into the program.

My prayers go out to both families. Is Mike Weavings mother named Laura? I remember a young red headed boy named Michael, I used to work with his mom in Southbury. She was such a good person...

Tom Curley was the one that was burning him and murdered Weaving. My damn brother is too stupid as to help because he was confused in the situation. My brother would never take another mans life and he sure as hell isn't a monster since I was living with him for 10 YEARS!!!! I KNOW 5X MORE THAN YOU EVER WILL ABOUT HIM, HE'S NOT A MONSTER. You're the monster for calling this unguided man a monster.
