We are praying for your entire family at this time. My daughter went to school with Emily and has told me a lot about her. She said that she was a great girl, and everyone knew and liked her. Please accept our condolences. And we hope and pray as well, that soon, her killer will be caught and brought to justice.

God bless you and your family.

This senseless murder outrages and saddens me. We live in small town america and can not allow this to happen to our innocent children. We recently moved from vass and on many occasions left our child at home at the age of 11 and 12. We all have to be on the look out for these monsters and not just sit waiting for something to happen. If I hear of anything that might be helpful I will report it immediately, by doing this I hope it puts more pressure on authorities to find the murderer. I am so sorry that anyone has to go through this and my family will pray for her family everyday.

I am speechless at this incident. What these teens did goes above and beyond my way of thinking. I just can't even comprehend how a human person could do this to another human, especially a sweet pretty innocent little girl. It makes no sense what so ever. I pray for this family, and even though they will never get over this I hope their pain subsides. I believe in God, yet sometimes when I question my faith, it is something like this where I really hope that she is with Him.
