You are correct...this was no accident!! This was a sick game Jillian was playing to have Lee jumped....the wrong guy got killed, it was meant to be Lee who was getting "roughed up" by Ryan. It could of easily went as Jillian had planned in her pathetic little brain and Lee could of been dead instead of Ryan and Ryan could of been in prison instead of Lee....How do you like your little game now Jillian?? Do you sleep well at night knowing what your part in this was? Are you proud of yourself? I hope you rot in hell Jillian for all the pain your pathetic but very real game you came up with has caused Ryan and Lee's families. I know, I'm probably going to get blasted for saying that Lee and his family are suffering but in the end it was not Ryan or Lee's fault the fight happened in the first place...the blame should and will eventually be on the person that caused all of this....JILLIAN DURKIN!!

Well if you know something say it to the prosecutor have her brought up on charges. That is the problem with people today. They are scared to stand up for anything anymore.Don't hide behind fake name and locations. My brother was killed and people tht knew something told everyone else except the police. You wouldn't like it if it was someone you loved

You are absolutely right! When will people stand up and do what is right?? If there are people out there who know the truth, they need to speak to the police. Truth will set you free!! My condolences on losing your brother.He may be gone physically, but his spirit will live with you forever.

Sorry about your brother,I hope his killer is brought to justice one day.

I have been saying it all the time. What people talk about something among themselves,in a car,a barbershop,they know everything and will not tell the police. Just imagine how many killers could be taken off the street if people just opened their mouths. Unless it's personal,people just don't seem to care.

Unless it's a cop that does the shooting.

no, it wasnt an accident, lee didnt trip and stab ryan, he grabbed him from behind , pushed him against a car, had the knife to his throat, then turned him around and stabbed him in the side, yeah, real accident. everyone is looking for someone else to blame. lee is the only one . i am not going to sit here and give all the details to you ignorant people. if you are so interested in this case, show up in the courtroom. oh, thats right scott, you cant. because after your brother killed pepe, you threatened to kill jillian via voicemail. yeah, we have the message saved. looks like you guys are just a killing family. must of been raised great.

It's funny how the story has changed. Wasn't the story told to the police that Lee came up away from the car and put Ryan in a headlock and then stabbed him on the side with Jill there? Get your story straight. Oh and by all the details you are describing it would seem you were out there watching this happen, wasn't only Jill,Ryan, and Lee that were out there that night??
DO NOT SPEAK ABOUT LEE'S FAMILY LIKE THAT!!!THEY DIDN'T RAISE KILLERS YOU IGNORANT FOOL.DO NOT BLAME LEE'S PARENTS FOR WHAT HAPPENED THAT NIGHT.LEE HAS A WONDERFUL FAMILY THAT RAISED ALL THEIR KIDS WELL.
WOULD YOU DARE SAY THAT TO RYAN'S FAMILY THAT THEY DIDN'T RAISE RYAN THE RIGHT WAY BECAUSE HE WAS IN TROUBLE A FEW TIMES AND WAS IN JAIL HIMSELF? NO YOU WOULDN'T!!
I don't mean any disrespect to Ryan's family by saying that.What happened to him was tragic and I send my condolences. I don't appreciate people like this bashing Lee's family.
As for you "Get a Life" I'll be glad to be in court and see which story you'd like to pick from the day you're on stand.
