how do you guy's feel about the death of the three year old boy killed by mr. knutsen. all evidence show he did this. now doesn't that call for the death peanlty. anything that has to do with kid's , these people should be shot.the boy was from north brunswick.medical examiner said from a blunt force trauma to the belly and back' to cause internal bleeding. i say bring it back and you take a life on purpose then your's should be taken. now that's fair.

While I understand the pain and anger, Mr Knutsen has not been found guilty of the alleged crime. And all have suffered in this, especially a little boy. Question becomes, what happens to the lives of all affected? What becomes of the little boy's parents? Their extended family? The accused, especially if found innocent? Not to mention his family. Either way, a child is gone and there is no way to erase that. Instead of focusing on the negative, try to channel your energy into making Nikolas' life count for something. Start something in his name, in his memory and let go of the anger.

I just read about this for the first time and my heart broke. I have 3 year old twin boys and couldn't imagine what I would have done if this ass had done this to one of my children. I hope the family knows a lot of people are thinking of you and praying for that poor child's soul.

According to the Star Ledger, "Fatal injuries suffered by a 3-year-old boy were inflicted long before the toddler was entrusted to the care of his mother's fiancÚ, a famed forensic pathologist told a jury in Middlesex County yesterday."

This case is taking a pretty interesting turn, considering the prosecution has said since day 1 it was Mr Knutsen and now this comes out. Here's the link for the entire article for anyone interested.

People! Just because Knutsen bullied people back in high school doesn't NECESSARILY mean he's capable of killing a child. Some people grow up and change for the better, maybe not statistically, but it does happen. Never assume someone is guilty until it has been proven. There has been some compelling evidence that the accusation could be wrong. Apparently eleven jurors agreed.

I am a little behind on this case....do we know if he is guilty or not??? Is the case over? Did 11 of the jurors believe he WAS guilty or NOT guilty....I keep hearing conflicting stories. If he's guilty I hope he gets what he gave out and thensome!!! If he is not guilty then whomever is needs to be punished. A beautiful little boys life was taken and that crime cannot go unpunished. There is one thing in this case that is clear...he WAS beaten.

Everyone felt he was guilty of the killing but the hang up was the charge! They had to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he knew what he was doing at the time of the lethal injuries. That ended up being 10 Guilty 2 Not Guilty.

I have been waiting to hear as the Prosecution was suppossed to recharge him. Hopefully he will get what he deserves! Too bad he can't received the same as Nickolas got!

i just wanna say that god knows the truth, but everyone has to look at the fact that if another not guilty happens, then he may very well be... not guilty. its hard for me to say, nikolas was family, but we know for sure he was killed, now lets get the killer.

So, "Concerned Person" you have been designated to speak the facts??

First, you state "Everyone felt he was guilty,"
Just who are you the spokesperson for? I am one of a group of MANY who believe Mr. Knutsen to be innocent of this charge! There are just too many inconsistencies on the part of the investigation regarding this case. Even the assistant prosecutor made a claim that the jury was 11 to 1 in favor of guilty. Others made the claim it was 11 to 1 in favor of not guilty. Now you make a claim of 10 to 2. Why not identify yourself since you are a spokeperson and speaking "factually"?

Yes, a wonderful little boy has been taken from us. Nobody argues that. But the investigator in this case made up his mind from the start and nobody else was investigated! And there was surely enough reason why they should have questioned the people who were with Nikolas the last 4 days of his life. During that time, Mr. Knutsen wasn't with the boy. Considering that he was the only person in the apartment the morning the affects of the injury took place, he was easy to finger! There were too many inconsistencies on the part of the state's witnesses during that trial. To listen to the motives they came up with was sickening--Mr. Knutsen beat the child because unemployment told him that they would get back to him?? I know a couple of people who know Mr. Knutsen and his family and they believe in his innocence 100%! He and his family have gone through much considering they all believe in his innocence and all loved Nikolas.

I think Nikolas' family should want to know the truth at ANY EXPENSE! This defendent has been portrayed as such a bad person since this terrible event took place. Unfortunately, our system doesn't adhere to its "innocent to proven guilty" standard. There are people who should be investigated who were with this boy in the days leading up to his death. You really have to wonder who is hiding something here. This investigation should be re-opened. There was an unusual amount of loopholes in certain professional testimony and the prosecution was quick to dismiss Dr. Baden's sworn testimony because he was paid by the defense and his wife was a friend of somebody? He is one of the more respected pathologists in the world--someone called in on the JFK & Martin Luther King assasinations. He would lie for a $10,000. payment? Wasn't everyone (the investigator, the prosecutor, the judge) all being paid for their services at this trial? It was a case where the state kept referring to the "facts & evidence." What facts and evidence? They produced no concrete evidence against Mr. Knutsen and continually played on the emotions of the jury. Again, yes, a wonderful little boy is gone from us but this was an absolute rush to judgment. Mr. Knutsen's freedom is now in jeopardy. Yet, he did love this boy with his whole heart and this is something I have been told by many. The boy apparently made great strides after Mr. Knutsen came into his life. Should it be proven that Mr. Knutsen is innocent how will you all feel after everything he has endured the last 27 months?

And on a sidenote--using multiple identities on this forum to get a rise from the people is just plain childish!

I would think the family would want to know the truth regardless of what it might be! Someone out there is responsible for what happened to Nikolas, that is for sure. And everyone who was with the boy the last 4-5 days of his life should be questioned!1
