why dont you ask the rest of your family. since you are a "family member of his". that would make the most sense.

It happened in Ivy Bend which is located in Stover and I do know he did not deserve to be shot. He was shot over hear say and he had been out of town during the Ivy Bend rumor crap

Who gets to decide who gets shot for what? does anyone deserve to be shot on hearsay,rumors gossip?This is crazy especially the self defense I wanna hear the wittness side.

I know the man that shot him. I understand he went there to see if there was possibly stolen property (a trailer?) sitting outside of your nephew's house. He was just driving by and did not mean to kill anyone. James Wager is an old fashioned family man and would not intentionally kill anyone. I did not know your nephew. I am sorry for your family's loss. This is a trajedy for everyone involved.

Nathan had been working out of state and had been home less then 20 minutes when did he have time to rob any one and if the man did not intend to hurt nate why did he bring a gun to his house and if he did it out of fear why did he even go to nates house the cops had been there twice and found nothing. Why are the cops only using the report from the gum man and not the wittnesses? something does not jive

How can you say he did not plan on shooting him when he went there with a loaded gun? people change he might have been a family man at some point in his life but he is a killer now. Who goes to another persons house with a loaded gun just to talk? He admitted to stalking Nathan Walkers house for days!!!!!!!! And he said that day the road was blocked and he feared a trap, SO WHY NOT JUST GO HOME YOU DUMB ASS. BUT NO LETS JUST PULL IN THE DRIVEWAY AND CONFRONT THE MAN YOU ARE SUPPOSIBLY AFRAID OF?????? JUST FACE IT HE WENT THERE TO KILL AND THAT IS WHAT HE DID!
NATHAN WAS NOT EVEN IN TOWN WHEN WAGER'S HOUSE WAS BROKE INTO HE WAS WORKING IN OAKLAHOMA.... HE MUST BE MAGIC TO BE ABLE TO GET THERE STEAL FROM HIM AND GET BACK TO OAKLAHOMA IN TIME FOR WORK EVERYDAY. HE ALSO CALLED THE COPS TO NATHANS HOUSE TWICE THAT WEEK AND WHEN THE COPS FOUND NOTHING!!!!!!!! HE TOOK IT INTO HIS OWN HANDS. LET THE COPS DO THERE JOB AND TAKE THERE WORD FOR IT WHEN THEY SAY THERE IS NO STOLEN GOODS ON SITE. PLUS YOU SAID IT WAS A TRAILER? WELL DONT YOU THINK HE WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO SEE IT FROM THE ROAD? WHY PULL IN TO THE DRIVEWAY? I HOPE THAT OLD BASTARD DIES IN JAIL!!! AND SELF DEFENCE MY ASS IT WAS PLAIN OL MURDER FACE IT YOU DO NOT HAVE THE FACTS OF THIS CASE NATHAN WAS NOT USING METH, TEST PROVED THAT ALREADY. MAYBE IT WAS WAGER THAT WAS A USER AND TRADED HIS STUFF TO GET HIGH AND THEN CLAIMED IT WAS STOLEN TO TRY AND GET IT BACK SO HE COULD TRADE IT FOR DOPE AGAIN? THINK ABOUT THAT AND GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU DEFEND A MURDERER. hOW MANY TIMES DID THE COP SAY HE HAD BEEN TO WAGERS HOME BECAUSE HE CLAIMED HIS STUFF WAS STOLEN? SOUNDS FISHIE TO ME SOUNDS LIKE A NO GOOD METH HEAD...

Jim Wager is no killer. ALL the people in Ivy Bend are tired of this stealing.. Lots of young kids hung-out at this Nates house.(not good) I don"t know the man who got shot. But i do know Jim.As far as him haveing a gun__Hes always carried one in his truck. In plain sight.Hes never bothed anyone. His kids are good kids. Never ran the roads like most of them at all hours of the night. This is a sad thing that happen. For BOTH families.
And yes it was self defense.And some of them kids have already left the bend. People here in the bend are going to protect what they worked hard for. Enough is enough. People are arming them selfs here. They are not takeing any more crap.
The cops do what they can. But there hands are tied. Andrea if you live here you know. If you don"t live here. Than you really have no ideal of whats went and is going on here as I"m writing this. Its a sad thing thats happen. Both families are hurting,

I understand that things are being stolen and people get upset but nate was not even home when things were being stolen he works out of town and is gone durring the week. If people were hanging at his house it was to be with the girls there and had nothing to do with Nate. That being said why did the cops not find anything when they were there twice? and if his things were stolen why kill a man who had nothing to do with it and who had in fact only just got home 20 minutes before wager showed up and killed him? there is no reason to kill in cold blood over things that you can't take with you when you die anyway? Nate was a good man and he worked why would he steal something he could have just bought if he wanted it? And I do not care that his family is hurting atleast they still have him and can see him if they want to. Nates mother is not well her heart is bad and she is now back in the hospital and Nate was the second of her children to be murbered. How can you say both familys are hurting and expect me to care about his family my family is hurting and we can never see Nate again. I have known Nate since the day I was born litteraly. He was not a thief.. Never has been even in the worst times some people have morals and no matter what they hold fast to them. I will never believe it was self defence it was murder plain and simple. just because he always carried a gun does not make it ok to pull it and shoot a man in his own yard. He already called the cops they did there job that should have been enough. When he said that his home was rodded that day there is no way it was nate so he needed to get his facts straight before he confronted him. If he would have done that he would not be in jail and Nate would be alive...

In case you dont know things are bad everywhere not just in the "BEND" So I dont care about your problems I care about the fact that a man I love is dead because of rumers and heresay. What makes you think this Jim wager is not a dope head himself and traded his stuff for dope? Nate had two girls watching his home while he worked out of town if there was trouble maybe someone should have looked at them they are the ones who were doing dope in Nates home while he was gone, I know he would not have allowed them there if he knew they were using. Get the facts straight before you defend a murderer to me. Plus someone said a trailer was among the stolen goods well I am pretty sure you could see that from the road or at the very least the cops who searched his home would have found it but alas they found nothing to make them think that Nate was the thief so again he took it upon himself to get what he felt was justice and MURDERED an inocent man. For that alone I hope he fries. A life for a life!!!! death to the murderer!
I pray Missouri has the death penalty if anyone deserves it, it is Jim Wager!!!!!!!!!

Yes i agree things are bad everywhere. what happen was bad. But i do disagree about Jim. He is not a murderer. Im sorry about Nate. But you need to know the truth. Nate is not innocent. No one need to die over anything. But hon it happen. If he got the gun first he would have shot Jim. A bad thing but its happen. I my self have a gun. If someone tried to get it. yes. i would shoot first. And yes. I do feel sorry for BOTH families. No one can help what a family member does. I know your sad. you lost a loved one. But just hang-on hon. The truth will be known real soon. One way or another.

well my heart goes out to all the families in ivy bend..yes two tradagies happen but listen no matter what is said it is never your family who done anything wrong. well let me tell ya, yes all those kids have run the roads,stole,bought dope even your family member(nate). jim was not ,never has been, and will never be a doper lady.he has worked hard all his life in the bend to help the kids out,his kids are the most respectable kids down there. and people are tired of the (kids) thier and any one involed with them stealing thier hard working things.and the radio lady said they did find drugs at nate's house..but who care's. and if this is the second murder in the family maybe the whole darn family needs rehab. but maybe this or maybe that the truth will come out. i do believe jim went to talk to nate but never intended to shoot any one.but when nate reached for the gun jim was faster...would it be ok if nate would of got the gun and killed jim? oh that would be self defense.im sorry about both families lost and yes there is death pentaly here , but we have accessory to the crime to. so maybe nate would of got that sooner or later and you'd be seein him behind bars. wait till you put all you hard working time and your money you sweat for into a place for one of those brats that run's the road all hours of the nite to steall your shit...then who would be raising a fuss...let it lay.. parents watch your kids cause people are tired of them stealing thier stuff and we can all live in this happy little bend as we knew it...

Just so you know the syringe they found in nates house did not have drugs in it, acording to witness testimony Nate was atleast 4 feet from the truck So how could he have been grabing for the gun? Also keep in mind he was only home on the weekends so anything that was going on thru the week had NOTHING to do with him so why did Jim go after him and not try to find the real person to blame? Do not lump him in with all the punk kids that steal around there. He was not a kid as you so liked to call the trouble makers he was almost 40. And I have copies of the police reports and no where in them does it say drugs were found in the house. even if there were does that make it ok for someone to murder another? Understand that Nathan was not even home 20 mintutes when Wager murdered him and no matter what you say or think that is what it was. SO stop defending a killer and get your facts straight. Just because the RADIO said something does not make it fact. I have seen every report of this from news to the actual police report that i have in my home right now. NONE have mentioned drugs... Again wager said that his friends were robbed that very day and again I will tell you Nathan was not even in the friggin state. Wager should have thought about that before he pulled a gun. His word that nate was after the gun is as believable as Nate robbed him that very day. It did not happen that is the facts...
