Whoever did this,please give yourself up because it was a stupid reason you had to kill these two great friends of mine . Ralph and Robbie would not hurt anyone and would give the shirts off thier backs if you needed it... They kept to themselves and helped you when you needed it and then you take advantage of them and murder them... Justice will be served.

I've known Ralph for quite a while and my kids call him their god father... he was there while they were growing up and have always loved him. I just got news not sure if it is true supposedly Brian called his mom and said he was going to turn himslf in and he was sorry for what he had done and that he was going over to Kentland to kiss his daughter for the last time and what happened after that happens. And that he did so this it was heard on the scanner

News flash I just got word that Trisha was picked up and told the police that she dropped off Brian in Mentone Indiana and that he was trying to go see his grandma... his aunt mary was on the phone with my daughter and sid the cops have her house surrounded and Brian will hopefully be in custody very shortly. I am not brians aunt by marraige but my kids are his cousins

Little Roy is in jail at this time for beating up Brian so we know he had nothing to do with it.

Brian was my cousin yes and it is very hard for me to believe he would murder two of my very best friends and not have any remorse! Ralph was like a father to me and Robby like an uncle neither of them deserved this especially over a stupid bitch like Trisha!!!! I have fully given up all respect and no longet care anything about Brian!!!
The thing that hurts my feelings is that Ralph has done so much for Trisha and Brian!!!
One thing is for sure though Trisha is saying she had nothing to do with it and that has to be a lie!! she had plenty of chances to escape from him if she was held hostage like she says! in the end truth will come out!! For now i Pray for my friends and family who knew them as well as the families of both Robby and Ralph!
Ralph, Robby ill miss you and love you Both!

I dont personally know this girl or what all went down Saturday night but if you look on judici you can see she filed an order of protection against Brian in April. Not saying she did not have anything to do with it but maybe there is some truth to her claims. He obviously did something to her to make her file for the order of protection. Maybe you should support your own family during this time instead of posting trash about them on here. How are his parents feeling right now they have just lost a son I know it is not the same as what the victims families are going through but they must be hurting right now and you are not helping by your comments. My prayers go out for everyone who has been victimized by your cousin Brian's actions including you.

I know what was going on at Ralph's and if it was not for the skanky broads that went down there and used Ralph for whatever they could get out off him "Money and Beer" and would do sexual favors for it knowing that they had a man at home then this crap would not have happened.
Love for these skanks is what made Brian snap.
There are a few other people that I know were mad about thier women that would go down there and these women know who they are. Poor Ralph did'nt like all the partying but these whorebags just would not stay away from there and Ralph didn'nt have the heart to tell them to get lost... now look at all the others lives that have been changed forever because of it. So to all the dumb ass broads out there in the world that think it is ok to screw over your old man at home and think it's funny to go to some guys house and do this kind of stuff with out something like this happening think again.

Way to go Brian. You made a name for yourself and brought the Garrett name down as low as you could take it. You wanted to be able to see your daughter but now you may never see her. Look at all the lives you messed up... All the little children that wont get to grow up knowing thier grandfathers. Just over a crack head biotch. She may have been only 24 but looked like she was 60 after doing all the drugs she did. You will not only be judged by the people in a court of law but also when you stand before the Devine one he will send you straight to HELL so you can be with your real father the Devil himself.

My brothers only wish when enlisted in the army was to find his father. After loosing contact with Ralph for over 20 years we finally found him. My brother only got to meet with him once. He was suppose to be there Friday too. Now he will never get to know his father because some selfish jealous idiot.

I can't believe someone would do something like this to someone that was so nice and would do anything to help anyone. I hope Brian gets what he deserve for hurting both families as much as he has. I can't wait for his day in court!

I for one have to say that I know Brian and am still stunned to say the least that he is capable of doing something so awful. I spoke to him about a week ago and he was so distraught over the crap that Trisha would do to him. She tortured him. He loved her and their baby and was desperately trying to find a way to see his child. He was crying his eyes out and my first thought when I heard about the murders was that it was over Trisha. She is a crack head. Brian is NOT a bad person, I think he had a major drug and girlfriend problem. What he did only reminds me that you never know what people are capable of. I would NEVER have guessed anything could make him hurt a fly. As for the order of protection Trisha filed for...keep reading and in the history section it says there was not enough evidence to even issue one. It was just another mind game that sick woman played. Brian is not a very intelligent guy. He has tremendously low self esteem and made some horrible choices that put him where he is. I would bet money that Brian is remorseful. That however is no comfort to the families of these two men who lost their lives. I am deeply saddened by this whole situation. Three families are suffering. The drugs in this county are running rampid. If you really look at what is going on, you will see it almost always involves drugs, drinking or a combination of the two and usually two people are fighting over a woman. No offense to the person who wrote that these men gave women money in return for sexual favors...If there is any truth to that, that is inexcusable. They exploited those desperate drug addicted "whorebags" as you call them. It's pretty disgusting if you think about it. This whole world is a big mess. Perhaps, Trisha would have saved everyone a lot of heartache if she had been home with her child not on a crack binge doing sexual favors for someone. Extremely sad.

I have never heard such bullshit. I am terribly sorry for the death of these two men no matter what they or Trisha did they did not deserve what happened. Same goes for Trisha. How can you say her actions made someone else take two mens lives? If what you say is true you not only make her look bad but also the two men who are here no longer. How about you put the blame on the right person the man holding the knife that night. Other people only have control over your actions if you let them. Brian committed the crime if he had help I hope they are put in jail right next to him. But saying she is the reason he snapped is wrong. He snapped because he had problems.

No! he snapped because was enraged with jelousy! she shouldnt of been there in the first place. she was calling brian that night over and over wanting him to come over there but he wasnt allowed over there. so if she wanted to see him so bad she should of left. but she is a dumb bitch and thought it was funny to torcher brian like that by flirting with other men. she knew what she was doing and knew that brian was obsessed with her and would do anything to make her only his. shes a dumb bitch i dont care what anyone says....shes a dumb ass whore.

VERY easy for you to say. You do not know Brian. This is the first time I have ever known someone who committed such a crime. Brian actually is a good person. I DO believe he needed a lot of help. I know he struggled with drugs. He was not a very smart person. He admitted that. The thing is that Trisha knew that and took advantage of Brian. She used him and continued to play games with him. She literally drove him crazy. We can all say that the people we know and love are not capable of murder. We can say it about ourselves, but until you have actually walked a mile in Brian's shoes. Just SHUT UP! You obviously have NEVER had any experience with people who struggle. I do believe Brian had serious emotional issues. Trisha was well aware of those. I admit it is NOT Trisha's fault. I do believe that she did not help the situation and in fact did everything she could to aggravate it. Brian definitely made some serious mistakes. I don't know his family, but my impression was that while they tried to be a good support system to him, it was unfortunately, not enough. I am always amused by people like you who sit in judgment of others. Thinking every single person that commits a crime is an evil monster. I will say again...I feel horrible for the families of those two men. It is a tragedy that cannot be undone. Brian truly will have remorse for what he has done. He is not an evil human being. He will spend the rest of his life regretting what he did. That is if he is not sentenced to death. I hope as you typed the above words, you did so with a clear conscious....in other words, I take it you have NEVER lost your temper, never made a mistake, never drank to the point of being intoxicated.....You must be perfect! By the way one more thing....no one ever said that by holding Trisha partially responsible those two men deserved to die....you should read what you write before you post it. Before you type any other nonsense, it may do you some good to actually research the subject and educate yourself on mental and emotial instability and crimes of passion. Do us all a favor and educate yourself before you speak!

You don't know Brian very well. I have known him since he was a little baby and have seen the way he was treated growing up. Things like that can stay with a person for thier entire lives.
you didn't see the way Brain acted three days before this happened... all the signs were there but no-one ever figured Brian would actually go through with any of his threats.
