Well , This is a very twisted story The brother to James Robertson shoot and killed his wife and nephew back in Jan . Jackie Robertson and April were going through a seperation/ divorce may have already even been filed . And if Im not mistaken Where James shot his self Is the same area in which his brother Jackie Shot His self , wife and nephew. My hurt just goes out to the kids . I also hope that someone is making sure the Robertson Children are safe and are around people that are mentally safe .

Its sad a woman and man are dead and all you grown people can do is argue and try to campaign. Santa Clause your not even from alabama so you probably have no clue whats really going on. Grow up both of you.

I can see one thing about you,according to your answer, you may have passed thru TEXAS; but you never read one of our handbooks. No one speaks or writes such stupid answers as you did. Is it possible you do not know the difference between the two?Plus...the rabbits are huge also. carrie

So just because his family was put through hell gives him a pass to beat and kill someone. She was someone's mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. He was a coward and took the easy way out. It sickens me to see people stick up for a murderer.

I agree very much with Kmbrly Killen. It is very easy for people to just sit around and JUDGE other peoples lives. Chris did have a lot to deal with and when he was not mixed up with drug was a great person. Ms. Russell did not deserve to die. BUt I think it is wrong that the news media has labeled him a murderer before all fact are in. He was having a hard time dealing with his brothers death.

Bella and county resident I am so glad that your families and lives are so perfect. No she should not have had to die. But you try dealing with what he was. Him and his brother were very close. It is also easy for people to judge that situation. IT AMAZES ME JUST HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE PERFECT FAMILIES AND LIVES AND ARE ABLE TO JUDGE OTHERS
