i think what ever christine gets is what she deserves and mabey she deserves alot more.
how can you take a life and just not care.
i read that he died between 10 am or 12 noon, that means she just left him there for 5 to 7 hrs.
And i read that she hide the weppon and changed her close.
This kind of person has to have a cold black heart.
I hope she never sees the light of day.
Rob was a kind person, I grew up with him so i know the kind of person he was.
He will be missed very much and i will carry his memory in my heart forever.
Like i said i hope she never sees light agen and never getts the chance to care about someone agen.
Sincerly a good friend of Rob.
We love you rob and we will miss you.
take care untill we are all together agen.

I'm sorry "friend" but I am sure having a hard time picturing you talking about Rob Moser as a kind person. You mean the
"WOMAN ABUSER" "DEAD BEAT DAD" "RAPIST" "COWARD"
Wawasee High School , Rob Moser?
It's sad that this woman will go to prison for murder. If she would have killed him in the heat of him beating her it would be self defensive. But during a beating a woman don't have a chance to defend her self.
I pray for her. That she can find peace with her self in prison. Rob has always got away with everything.
Though no one deserves to die, I can't see a lot of people mourning this man.
Yes, He raped me.
God Bless

To the "friend"....My definition of friend is obviously different than yours. To me a friend is loyal, kind, and protective. Christine was all of things. All I saw of Rob was a mean, drug-crazed liar, rapist, and person who enjoyed to physically and mentally torture those around him. There are so many details from this incident that you my "friend" will not know for some time. I stand behind Chrissy. I know her and love her and believe she did the world a favor.

Wow there is so much you do not know, first off she changed her clothes so the children at the other trailer wouldn't get scared, she had to have someone drive her to the sheriffs office. To me that showed so much concern for the kids. He mentally played with her head he had threatened to burn those babies in their trailer and the ones that survived could find a new home. This man was a monster and a drug addict. He was a control freak. And please anyone that knows of his violent behavior please come forward to the lawyer James Ebbs from Albion. Christine Ratliff was the victim here. She just fought back and didn't die when he tried to kill her. She is my hero she saved the life of her brother and her friends that he was going to kill she is my hero she saved my life from him. She is a friend and protector and will always have a place with me and in my heart.

She had a choice.... She left and then came back.... and then she killed him it was all a choice.
She could have called the police and told them where he was but she chose not to.
Do I feel for Christina yes.......... but if she was with Rob she new what came with him. And you can not tell me she was not involved in everything that he was doing. She was for on knowing all that he had done helping him still run from the police.
Let it be known that she had a choice.

Choice.... where does free will begin and trying to help another end. Chrissy is an amazing person. She is the "save the wounded bird" kind of person. She and Rob did have a love for each other. I don't understand it, but it's not my place to. Choice is a tricky thing. Do you choose to wait for someone to kill your child or do you walk away....Hmmmmmmm.....tough one. Choices are made at the drop of a hat sometimes. You can't say she had a choice in everything that happened. It is a tradgedy that will haunt so many for so long. I love her very much and have know her since the day she was born. She is my best friend. I know everything about her and this I can tell you. She would run in front of a bullet fora stranger. But if you threaten her family, her son, or beat her and rape her..everything changes. You have to ask yourself, how much could you be beaten, how many times could be violated? He may have been someones father, and that is an terrible loss, however please don't lose sight of the women he has raped and beat over so many years. He always gets away with it. You know what his past was, you knew he was wanted, and you unleashed him on the world. That was your CHOICE.

In my quest for answers I found a couple of web sites that explain Rob Moser that I know. He was a very sick human that needed his family to intervine and they should have gotten him help. But there are several help groups out there for his victims, Please all of you get help to deal with this kind of abuse.

i read every comment on this forum and believe only one person on here speaks the truth!! Rob Moser was a very kind, loving, caring, considerate man, father and son. What happened to his was more than a tradegy. Everyone has a Choice in life. Christine made hers. If all of you were so called victims of Rob then why are you only coming forward now..when he can't speak for himself?Why is it only after he was brutally murdered is it that all of you so called victims now want to come forward with all of your accusations?It's real easy to blame a man who is dead isn't it?I wish Christine would suffer the exact same fate that Rob had no choice in.....IF she was being abused soooo badly then why did she stay with him and why didn't she report him?Rob stayed with me from January until the week he died.....there is A Lot more to this story but all you are hearing is hers...it's kind of hard for a dead man to tell his.I believe in karma and i firmly believe she will get exactly what she deserves in the end.May God forgive her because i never will....is girls deserved to get to know and be with their daddy...and his mom deserved to be with her son.Where was their choice at?The bible clearly talks about murderers and what should happen to them..she will be judged!!!!!!I love you Robert Howard Moser....all of us do. May you rest in real peace now....while this hell continues.Thank you Rob for being all that you were and always will be to me and my family.You are one in a million and will be dearly missed!!!

I don't know who you are but He lived with us from the first of March till a week before his death. We were taken in by him. He used us to hide from the police, When we told him no He threaten each one of our lives and was gone, We didn't see him again, We thought he had left to go to Indy or wherever, We didn't know he was wanted till after he was gone. We didn't know he was hiding in Shady acres or that he had boarded up the place so noone could see in.
I saw the Robert Moser you talk about for about 2 months, I want to know if he was really dieing of cancer and did he only have a couple of months left. No one seems to want to confirm that lie he told us to make us feel sorry for him. Or any of the other lies to get what he wanted. He was polite, a sweet talker, and complimenter, Till I told him no the first time, then I saw the Robert Moser he became. The one that left me afraid for ever member of my family including my dogs.

He was a con man. Knew all the right things to say and do until he had your trust then the real Robby came out. If you have ever been involved in an abusive relationship you have no idea of the dynamics. She gets brainwashed and believes what she is told. Eventually a human can take only so much. He was running from the police, but then his Dad is a cop and they let him get away with everything. There was a bench warrant out for him. He chose not to go to court. My sympathies are with Chrisie and Robby's Mother. Such a loss. Hopefully his Mother knew him, even if she was in denial, and will speak up for Chrisie.

I will give you the fact that Rob was a good person, as long as he was not drinking or doing drugs. He and I drank together. Almost every time he did he would get very violent. The last time I saw him was around the middle of April. He needed some money and I gave it to him. I was under the impression that he was going to Florida for work. I distance myself because of his wild side. I went back to AA and he did go to a few meetings with me.

On the other side I knew Christine as well. She and I ate lunch together nearly every day while we were both working at Gulf Stream. She was a sweet person. This is not to justify anything that anyone has done. She was in the wrong and consequently should pay for her crime. I will miss Rob a great deal. He was a very good friend of mine.

You are angry. You have the right to feel what you feel. I hate that it endend this way. There are so many things that you don't know, that I don't know, or anyone else for that matter. Rob may have been a great friend to many, but he was a danger to others. We had no idea what he was until it was too late. We only found out the criminal things after he was gone. There are women who say that he hurt them. Who are you to belittle what they have went through. I wish there was a way to make this okay, but there isn't. He really turned the charm on and talked the big talk. You may have seen only the good that you chose to see. He hurt our family. Did you see the bruises from where he flung her through the wall...no you didn't. You can say mean and horrible things about those that don't agree that Rob was a Saint, you got lucky...you must have never pissed him off. Good for you. Do not talk about these girls like what they went through was nothing. You dodged him. We saw anger, hatred, total oblivious for anyone but what he wanted. Where were you that last week? Were you there when he borded the windows up and beat her? Were you there when he ripped her clothes off? Do you want to hear the rest????
You screaming and being hateful doesn't bring him back. You're hurt. I am so sorry for that. It is a loss for you. Her family has lost her as well. Her son has lost her too. Do you feel better by knowing that? Will that help you sleep? Will it make feel happy to know that her entire family is also going through a grieving process as well? If it makes you feel better and it makes it fell justified....do you want another death? If so, I would gladly take her place...I know Chrissy would jump in front of a bullet for a stranger....but you didn't know that did you? You don't know anything about us. If you feel good by slamming Chrissy and those who love her...go ahead. You look mean as hell. Feel tough now???!!! Your words don't really hurt us. We know that we love her. She did what she did. That can't be taken back. Ask the other girls how they feel. I bet you'd get some anger right back at you. Not from me. May you have a good life and live with love.

Yes he did live with me and my family from january until the thursday before he was brutally killed. YES he had cancer and yes he was dying from it. He had internal bleeding but of course if you were with him you would have known all of this about him. He was here for me when my mom died in march and for my grandsons birth in march and my birthday. He never left. So i dont know when or what you are talking about. I have proof of all of this. He left for a day or two at the most and came right back. He was never anything but helpful, considerate and caring. He didnt ask for his way or did he get his way here....love doesnt demand things. He had his problems....i found out after it was too late about his police problems or he would still be alive right now. He was at my house one night when chrissy called crying that she had just been beat up by another man and wanted rob to come rescue her...he didnt leave. He was everything a man should have ever been and will be sadly missed. I am sorry for your loss but she made that choice no one else did. Rob is being accused of everything under the sun by everyone now and he cant defend himself how convenient. I wish you and yours the best....

Rob would never lay his hands on a women or a kid! he would never rape anyone.. i dont care what you people say, rob was not the bad person here she was and is. wheres all your so called proof that rob beat a women or that rob raped you girls? there not any cause its not true and all you know that. its so convient now isnt?-- for all you people to come forward now will all there allugations about rob when he cant defend himself. it breaks my heart to see what that so called women and you people are saying about rob moser. he was so wonderful and caring and kind and he loved his little girls so much. all he wanted in life was to be with them. and he cant because chrissy decided to murder him! and he was threatening her and she cant say he was.. he was asleep when she murder him with that hammer. she deserves to get exactly what she did to rob. and she changed her clothes before she left and cleaned up so she would get caught! she dotn feel remorse for what she did. why?? because she did it because she wanted to she made her choice and if she was any type of a women she would take responsibilty for her actions and spend the rest of her life from the inside of a jail cell looking out!!!!!!!!! i dotn feel sorry for chrissy she desreves what she has coming to her
