This murder was senseless and ridiculous! To my understanding a bond was given to the confirmed murderer. How is this possible? You committ a murder on Thursday and you are back on the streets by Saturday. Will Tuskegee ever solve any crimes? or will this murder go in the cold case files of forgotten and unsolved cases. Why? Who else is involved? Now his family (including 2 daughters) are left to grow up without a father, sisters without a brother and mother, without her only son. I want justice and want it now! What ever you do, it will never bring Bryan back.

Angie, you are right! Our families will never be the same. Bryan will definitely be missed and never be forgotten! I am still in shock that this could even happen, especially to my little brother who never bothered anyone and had the biggest heart in the world, just like daddy. I can not comprehend the lack of value these kids have for "life". I just pray that this person is off the street soon, so that justice will be served and that he will not hurt or kill anyone else.

I am 37 years old and I have never seen anything happen to my family like this. I just hope that who ever did this will step up like a man face the facts. Judgement Day is coming and belive me you will not get in ; you have hurt so many people. Just go ahead and turn your self in and tell us the reason why you had to do this; you will fell better.I hope that you dont think you are going to get away with this.

No arrests have been made in Bryan's case. Three suspects have been questioned as of Friday afternoon (3-28). Officers believe this was not a random act and assume the motive was personal, but again, no arrests have been made yet.

Shamond, the cell phone was taken as a part of evidence. Let's just pray that it gives them clues to solve this senseless murder. In my opinion this was definately personal as evident by the number of shots.(I will never believe it was random!) It was a premeditated, cold calculated murder. Hopefully if any one knows anything at all, recent incidences or possible motives they will come forward. My brother did not deserve this, and did not deserve to die this horrible death. I put this is GOD's hand as NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST US SHALL PROSPER! That's word....This person or persons will not prosper and will be brought to justice. There is a pain in the hearts of the family and friends of Bryan that can not be explained....Bryan, lil bro. you are truly missed.

BRYAN WAS A GOOD MAN AND HAD A NICE HEART. I'M GLAD I GOT IN TOUCH WITH HIM NOT LONG BEFORE HIS DEATH. I JUST FOUND OUT THIS PAST WEEKEND WHAT HAPPENED, IT HURT ME A LOT TO HAVE TO HEAR IT LIKE THAT BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY IT HURT ME BECAUSE I KNEW HE WAS ONLY TALKING ABOUT DOING BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS WITH HIS LIFE, FAMILY AND ESPECIALLY HIS KIDS. HE WILL ALWAYS BE MISSED BY ME AND I'M UPSET I COULDN'T MAKE IT TO THE FUNERAL TO PAY MY RESPECT BUT I KNOW HE UNDERSTAND. MY CONDOLENCES GO TO HIS FAMILY. ALL THIS IS JUST SO SURREAL I HATED TO BELIEVE IT BUT I HAVE NO CHOICE. I CANT BELIEVE SOMEONE WOULD HAVE THE HEART TO DO THAT TO SUCH A NICE PERSON. I LOVE YOU BRYAN AND I KNOW YOUR IN A BETTER PLACE R.I.P.

Shena, by, "I just found out this past weekend what happened," that you have additional details on the murder? I haven't heard anything else from police since the shooting and I, as well as the public, would like to know any new information.

Jeff,no i don't have any new information than whats been said, i don't live in opelika anymore, i was just home visiting that weekend and ran into a mutual friend of bryan and i. He asked me did i go to bryan's funeral and i said no and was shocked to even here that come out his mouth so that's how i found out. i thought it was a joke but he said it wasnt and that bryan was shot and killed by some guy. so what i meant about "just found out" is that i had just found out about his death. Sorry i don't have any new information.

i, don't have say how senseless his murder was..but i do have to say how disconcern the tuskegee police department is and the macon county sheriff office..how many cold cases are there in macon county, how many serial killers lived and lives in macon county..the tuskegee news is so ready to publish a police report,sheriff report, pictures of people who have written n.s.f. checks..that the only way he (the owner can sell newspapers) blacks against black..that veil is still there...this is a town with no potential for as long as crimes go unsolved,your local newspapers do not publish the pictures of real criminals...the murderers..i have not seen one picture of a convicted murderer in tuskegee/macon county if you don't know them personally they can get out on bail/bond and kill again..this town has its priorities backward..also print the true story behind the tuskegee town square that has been renovated, was it used for slave auctions...the confererate statue ,the daughters of the confereracy who are they..why are we using city taxes to renovated this area, and why would a city in financial trouble pay 13,000.00 dollars for fireworks..ths money could have been used to pave a street of clean up some of these dirty neighborhood streets or advertise in the tuskegee news a need for new businesses, doctors, enough lawyers..dentists, decents places to take your family to eat without having to drive to auburn, opelika and montgomery, it is a delight to see a new bank face here in tuskegee..i do compliment RBC for keeping the bank open...
