It saddens me that we live in a society, where our laws and our Government, believe that criminals have more rights than the victims of crimes. How could Ginny Conley offer a plea bargain to Rickey Ratel when he fired two shots that brutally murdered Eric Dunn in Nov. 2005. What is Eric's family and friends suppose to do hide away in silence and grief while people in high ranking positions discuss what they think is best for the perperators who commit these crimes that destroy so many lives and have no interest in doing what is right for the families. Eric is dead, he didn't get 40% of a chance to live when rickey, timothy hill and brian stuck that gun to his head-why should they get a discount. I happen to know all the people involved in this case. Having lived close to Brian growing up I will tell you without a doubt the 3 men who murdered Eric are to be feared. They are scumbags and I can only hope and pray that judge Waters denies the plea bargain. Personally I am terrified of these men being loose in Parkersburg. I really believe he might since Tim and Rickey lied to Judge Waters face about how the murder took place in that courtroom. I only knew Eric through working with him for awhile. He was friendly, sweet and could never stop talking about his son Quentin. It was apparent that he had a caring spirit. He was mixed up in a bad marraige with the wrong girl. I always thought Eric would get away from her and prayed he had the strength to do so. I will never forget the day I found out it was to late and believe me I wasn't surprised at all. Those men who Eric always feared took his life. I hope the community gets involved and fights for Eric and his family!!!!!

Sorry that I offended you. Are you Rickey's sister or what? I didn't know him as well-but he was hanging out with some dangerous people. If he only would have fired one shot instead of two- Eric would not be dead. I realize they were angry at each
other because Rickey was having an affair with Eric's wife. Arguments and disagreements should not be resolved with guns. If anyone feels threatened, that is why we have restraining orders. Besides they followed Eric in a car that night. There were 3 of them against Eric. He did not have a gun and they did. That's not called fair that's called murder!!!! It is horrible for all family and friends involved. What about these mens children. Were is the example and who are these innocent children supposed to look up to?

Eric did not have a gun! Were have you been? I also said Rickey was with Eric's wife-you got that mixed up. That night Eric didn't have a weapon. I guess if there is a trial, we will get to hear the facts. It is probably true that if Brian would not have handed Rickey the gun that night, Rickey probably wouldn't have shot Eric and he would not be dead right now. All four of the men were arguing and that is what it would have been if there had not have been Brian's gun involved. Also Rickey and Eric's wife are still together even after this deadly crime. Who knows what part Eric's wife had in this whole thing. Look at all the lives that got messed up in that one second! It is a lose-lose situation for everyone!!!!

ERIC MONCREIF WAS NO FREIEND TO ERIC DUNN TAKING HIM AROUND DRIVING WIT WEAPONS TO KILL SOMEONE.ALL BUT NO THE WORLD DON'T SEE THAT PART.ERIC WAS A GOOD MAN BUT ALSO DANGEROUS. HIS WIFE TRIED TO GET AWAY FOR YEARS BUT FEARED HIM. IF SHE EVER TRIED TO MAKE A NEW RELATIONSHIP HE HURT THE NEW GUY GO DOWNTOWN PARKERSBURG AND LOOK AT HIS RECORD IT IS ALL THERE... NOW WHAT?????? RICKEY RATEL IS A VERY SWEET MAN THAT MADE A WRONG CHOICE THAT NIGHT OUT OF FEAR. REMEMBER ERIC ATTACKED RICKEY WITH A WEAPON AND DAMN NEAR KILLED HIM. HIS WIFE COULD NOT HELP THAT ERIC COULD NOT LIVE WITHOUT HER THAT SHOULD BE NO BLAME TO HER "REALITY DUH" ERIC DUNN WAS A BROTHER N LAW TO TWO OF THE MEN THAT WAS THERE FOR OVER NINE YEARS SO DON'T MAKE IT SOUND LIKE A SET-UP,CONSPIRACY, OR ANY WACKED OUT BULLSHIT YOUR HEAD MAY CREATE. ERIC FEARED NOBODY ONCE AGAIN RECORDS CAN PROVE THAT. I'M HURT ERIC IS GONE BUT THE STATE AND THE MEDIA AND EVERYONE ELSE THAT IS NO CONCERN HAS GOT EVEYTHING TWISTED. NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU BAD MOUTH THESE THREE MEN IT WILL NEVER BRING ERIC BACK... SO RELAX!!!!!!!! ALL YEAH NO NEED TO HIDE YOURSELF PUT YOUR REAL NAME OUT THERE....

My name is carla and Yalanda don't pretend you don't know who I am!!!!!! I don't have anything to say to you Yalanda. I know all involved in the case except Ricky Ratel. Your sister Nik is a cold hearted person and the only reason Eric ever had a record was Nik would have him arrested over lies. Your sister is mentally ill and when we worked with Eric the big joke would be Nik. I saw Eric cry over his horrible situation and he wanted his marraige to work through thick and thin because of his son Quentin. HE FOUND OUT HORRIBLE THINGS ABOUT HIS WIFE .She had affairs with women as well as men. We begged him to get away from that evil person. I saw Nik knock the living heck out of Eric in our work parking lot once along with three of our co-workers, who need to come forth on this site and defend Eric Dunn (who is now murdered and can no longer defend himself!!!!!!)She slapped him not once in the face but four times along with scratching, pulling his hair and even tried to bite him. He did not touch her through it all. It did not stop until he got through the break door to were he worked. That was soon after his father died and we all felt so sorry for him. We all knew that Nik would end up killing him or have him killed. He was in her way and yes he did want that marraige to work and he lost his life because of Brian Lee and your sister Nik. I believe that about Brian and Nik because I watched them physically and verbally abuse Eric for several years. Eric Dunn would not hurt a flea. I know he would have had his life together perfectly if he would not have been involved with Nik!!!!!!!! The truth will prevail and You know as well as anyone else that alot of people in that town fear your brother Brian Lee. He has shook his little guns around in front of too many faces. He used to hang out at PHS and sell all the drugs to the kids of Parkersburg. They could not wait to get their daddy's money and buy drugs from your brother. He is one of the biggest drug dealers around!!!!!! I am surprised he isn't incarcarated over the drugs alone.

This message is directed to Yalanda ( in reference to message #8 that she posted above. Especially about the line were Yalanda says that Timothy and Eric were tight. After those men shot at Eric three times that night,two actually hitting him. One bullet pierced his heart region and the other was straight through his head and we will keep in mind that Eric did not have a gun!!!!! I think they could have messed him up pretty good without the gun. If Timothy and Eric were so tight then why did all 3 men leave him there to die and run like such cowards? I heard through Eric's grandma that they took him off life support the next morning. Is that how you treat someone that you are tight with. HOW DARE YOU YALANDA!!!!! What an insult to Eric's family and friends!!!! They left him for dead that night so don't you dare try and make it out to be an accident. Also no matter what it was or what they argued about. If they cared about Eric they would have stayed until the ambulance arrived-not left him there to die. It's murder,murder murder and don't call it anything else!!!!!!!!

This message is directed to post #6 by get it right from Parkersburg. If Brian Lee and Timothy Hill love and miss the murder victim very much then why did they leave him on a dark cold road to die?????????? If it was an accident then why not call an ambulance or check to see if he were still breathing. They murdered him in cold blood. And Nik you and Ricky Ratel were lovers so don't lie, everyone in Parkersburg knew that. Also you are supposed to get divorced first-otherwise it is adultery. If you had not have been cheating on your husband all four men would be hanging out in Parkersburg right now. I also talked to Eric's aunts who said that upon leaving the courtroom that Brian Lee (your brother,who gave Ricky his gun to kill Eric and who also left him there to die) said to the murder victims family after he found out there was going to be a trial " I wish I would have killed that son of a ______." meaning that he wished he would have pulled the trigger. So are you still saying that he loved Eric. Also the children have alot of people to look up to!!! If you call a murderer wearing an ankle bracelet someone to look up to then you might want to re-evaluate your morals. Also you better believe I feel sorry for Brian lee's and also timothy's parents along with all other innocent family members. It is a nightmare that they should never have to endure!!!!! But don't ever say that those 3 men loved Eric Dunn. You don't do that to someone you care about!!!!!! Even after running and being arrested the next morning- they never reached to even anonamously call the police. They had not a care in the world for Eric and that is why they left him there to die that night!!!!!!

Nik uses everybody! She is evil and self absorbed. It is funny how when her murdered husband Eric inherited his fathers money when he died-she was the perfect wife and wanted to stay married. That is until she spent all his money. She is something else!!!!
