I'm sorry but when a person is stabbed one to two times it is self defense but ten plus times is murder. This came from an officer.

Wtf is wrong with the police for letting him out I can't wrap my head around this!!!!!! he was murdered in cold blood and I think chris enjoyed every minute of killing someone. He is a sick insane individual n who should not be out walking thr street he will kill again i bet money on it! It's in his blood!
well

I think the reason he was let go on assalt charges had to be whoever witnessed the event told the police some maybe non truths about what really happened. Nobody knows for sure except the people that were there. I've already heard 4 different stories about how it all went down. None of which are probably true. I've heard he was calling and threatening people at the residence and i've also heard he went there swinging a bat around... among other things. I'm not sure about him being stabbed in the back first. This would mean he would have had to have been attacking someone and Chris was trying to stop him. But, 10 times? REALLY? That doesn't sound like self defense either. Also, if alcohol and/or drugs were in play, the actual truth wouldn't make any sense. I really do hope this gets the fair attention from the police it truly deserves. There's something more to it. I can just tell.

Unfortunately, this is starting to look like it's being handles even worse than that Twila Wylie case. That girl was going to have a baby. She was sooo happy about it. Well, don't get me started.

But, hey! If you want to kill someone and get away with it, this is the place to do it.

Just another case of wile e coyote. That's the waterloo pd. Bunch of hillbilly redneck band of officers. Such an inside cover up group. I've never seen more officers friends with criminals in my life. Inbred goobers. Sick sick sick town. The FBI needs to investigate the waterloo police department. Gross situation. A known drug user and a life long resident who sits in all the bars and drinks with drug dealers and users are 2 fine examples of these fake cops.

I hope the waterloo pd knows they may have created vigilante behavior ! Or that more people will be killed simply because people will think they can get away with it! Yes hillbilly rejects is what they are and yes someone with a higher authority needs to step.in!!!

Do they know chris has been diagnosed with mental illness he is bipolar and has had severe anger issues for a long time now. He would kill again in a minute if he was set off.! Well let that sit on the Waterloo PD mind.

All you people make me laugh. Pulling shit out your a$$. Seriously, no one knows, what REALLY happened and I'm sure no one will know the truth. How do you expect the cops to do anything with very little evidence. Y'all think you know your sh*t. No y'all just want someone blamed n locked up for your sake. Wuldnt you want to know the REAL truth? What if Eric was the one that started everything. What if he was the one that had the knife at first? What if it's Eric's fault??? Just bc he passed he didn't do anything right? Like I said y'all are all dumb as f*ck. Eric should've minded his own business n done did something else instead of trying to fight a 20 physco yr old. N the dumb b*tch shouldn't of been worth it to go over there in the first place if she was messing with them BOTH.... rip Eric boyer.... shit*y way to go...

Well, I'm sure with this much commotion some of the neighbors had to see something. Also if there were indeed threats made - why weren't the police involved at that point? Threats do not constitute a knife being displayed or used. I certainly hope more departments are involved in this one simply because of the seriousness of this crime. Waterloo along with any smaller towns are just not equipped to handle this - not because of the intelligence of their officers but because they do lack experience and size. Please try to respect this families loss as well and keep the investigation under wraps.
Wow

I do agree Chris does need to serve some time because of all the Sh*t that went down.. he did kill him.. but I don't think he did it randomly just to kill him..
Just stop

None of you know the consequences It's the states attorney who makes the decisions not the Waterloo PD. And by the way most of Waterloo patrons are from Cahokia an not all of us are White Trash

Real reason waterloo joke of a pd doesn't call in major case squad or outside help is because then all their inside cover ups and corruption would be exposed. Didn't one of waterloo's finest have a roommate in his basement running a drug business out of it??? Isn't tan man cop a well known coke user??? That's what I've been told
