Another fine example of the white-trash community. Put him in the electric chair, it's time to flush the toilet in this country.

John was a great guy, and loved his daughter. This is so wrong, and I hope this guy gets his judgement day.

Dearest Deb, if he is so intelligent, why did he murder someone and put himself in jail??? I hope the both of you didn't have a relationship that resulted in chilluns that the taxpayer's are supporting. GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR BIG CAREER MOVE AT WALMART SWEETHEART.

John D.Yanik is "not white trash".I have had the honour of having met and known and many of his fine family members inclusive of his mom ,a very great women that is no doubt crushed over all of this for over thirty years.My condolences to the family of the bereaved,his children and to the family of both parties involved with this untimely event.. Dont know what happened,wasnt there.I am his friend for life,even as friends dont see eye to eye all of the time as we all know.I have been looking for him many years now.May God Bless both families with his love and mercy...
