Jim Petty is the sheriff..he is not the judge and/or jury...I think the judges should be the ones to blame. Mr Petty and his deputies do their jobs by arresting them!!!

"NO" theres a lot of people in the bend that DON"T take drugs. YOU SIR: are an A&&...drugs are every where. well let me tell you.. people in the bend are sick & tired of the crap.. city of stover has as maybe more drugies than the bend. if the officials cant help us than by God we will clean it up ourselfs. at least we know who the drugies are. so if your one of them you better move out NOW.

I grew up in ivy bend my grandma has lived there for many years... I also went to school and was a friend of ron blowers for almost eight years...drugs make people do crazy things apparently ...he was never violent in the past and I feel horrible that two innocent people are dead but if Morgan county would help the teenagers who get in trouble instead of just labeling them as trouble because they believe they can't be anything else ...by the way I know Teddy brown and raydon Maddy and my parents were two there that associated with them...these kids are not horrible...they are misguided low income youths who need help instead of harrassment.

"Hang on there" I started to agree with you till you came up with the names BROWN/MADDYS..that broke the straw. I know Ron. I think he was sit up. hes not a bad person. well as far as Brown & maddy goes thats a whole new story. and by God they all know what right or wrong. Teddy & ray ray RJ, they are the trouble in the bend. they wont work. they want to steal from people who worked for what they have. and if you know them you know they are drugies and DEALERS. when i was young i was poor too. but i didnt do any thing they do. BECAUSE I KNEW BETTER.so being poor is no excuse. they are just plain rotten. and good liars. and their mom Carol was the biggest problem. so was their granddad Jenkins. maybe now the people in the bend will stick together and run all the scumb out. I know Rons parents is good parents. good people. this is killing them. my heart goes out to them. also the children of the slain people.. terible just terible...

Thank you... Ron has always been a respectable to everyone.. I still think theres more to it. so does most in ivy bend. I seen all the kids grow up here.. I seen lots of the parents turn their heads to what their kids do.. All this is a real sad thing to happen..I seen 7 & 8 year olds running the roads at 2-3 in the mornings. if anything maybe this will open the parents eyes to what can happen.sad sad

I have a hard time beleiving that ron could do this horrible crime without being out of his mind...and the sad thing is that I'm positive someone pressured him back into Meth..he told me he wanted to be clean...and even then the timeline is very doubtful ...Jim and phillis said ron didn't leave house till 6pm and at 615 he's in wreck... 15 minutes just doesn't add up ..unless there was someone else with him...

I agree full heartedly but not relevant in this case these parents tried to help their son and have held him responsible for his actions before..even turned him in when he was supposed to be home and wasn't ...they are good people and on this I am WIDE AWAKE

I hope the parole board that turned this kid loose are doing some real soul searching as they have to share the responsibility for this terrible crime. Back in prison in July for probation violations and turned loose in November on what was to be a 4 year sentence, something is very very wrong here.

Knowing wrong from right is different than doing wrong from right. That is where the disconnect happens and people get hurt.

I would only make one suggestion to you. If you know or suspect that you know who the other individuals are that were participants in this terrible crime. Please contact the police and help you and your neighbors have a safer place in which to live.

thank you.. police have been told. by many here. cant say too much on here. but the police are aware of a lot. now we have to wait and let them do their job. hopefully they will solve it soon. its such a terrible mess. my heart goes out to the kids of the Wells. also to the parents of Ron.and to the community.
