There are a lot of bad people in this area that are drug dealers and will and have killed people.

I know for a fact of the Mexicans living in Birch Tree on 3rd street that are BIG Cocaine, Pot and Meth Dealers and they have put hits out on people and have succeeded. I know of 5 people right now that have bounty's put on their heads from the Mexicans. Joey and JR. They are the biggest supplier to west plains for drugs. and more people will be killed by them or people they hire.
and Skip and the others also have went to them for their Drugs.

Its So Sad

I just live 2 streets from them and my kids ride the bus with their kids. Someone said they were drug dealers but i did'nt believe them.
Shannon County needs to come together and lock these mexicans up or run them out of the State.
Now i have to worry about my kids being out side or just on the bus or school with them.

If you want to know who is on meth, just look around. 1/3 of the town of West Plains is tattooed. Where are you going to imprison all of them?
Just because a person has a tattoo doen't mean they're on meth, or any drug for that matter... nor doies it mean they are an alcholic, satanist, gang member or any other sort.

His girlfriend is Monica Kesling and Missouri Case Net will tell you what kind of person that she is. I have heard that two of the four men in jail are Jonnathan Graven and Jared Graven. You can go the Missouri Department of Corrections and do an offender search for a picture of them. I don't know who the other two are that are being held. The truth will come out. I pray no one has to ever lose a child to this horrible addictive drug. Please write your legislators and tell them how badly this community needs money to stop this problem. My heart breaks for his family - may they find comfort in all the support that is coming today and in the future. For any person out there reading, Ricky would tell you "Don't Do Drugs" - In honor of Ricky, make a promise to yourself and help your friends stay away from drugs.

Why? Because she just got back from a brief stay in the county jail and a trip to an Arizona prison? Yep, sounds like she's got it together....

I will never forget Ricky Johnson. He always had a smile and a hug for me. Drugs is vicious and takes away such potential. I only wish that young people that knew him and his potential would learn from his mistakes but that does not seem to be the case.

How can the Graven's be in jail for this when they are in prison already?
they got out of jail they were both ouy for two weeks this happened because our justice system is bulls**t jared was supposed to do ten years and got out after 21/2 years to kill ricky in the two weeks he was out does that make any sense jaredsent me a letter the day he went back to jail....why was he out of prison anyway well they said he completed a drug program provided by the prison and a behavorial program provided by the prison guess we need to get bettter programs because they are not working

Hey Melissa, Oh sorry babygurl... that's about right ur the biggest baby around and only keep multiplying!!! Jared was the best thing that happened to you, he supported you and you children like they were his own when he was only 18. Give it up ur just mad cause he left you and you had to chase him all the way back to Missouri, to harrass him. You still livin off welfare and drugs?? Where were you when there was divorce papers to serve you from him? You in a mental hospital, or visiting one or ur mentally messed up kids there? You need to grow up and face life that you are worse than him and are just mad since he left you!! Have you ran back to your momma and daddy in Carolina lately cause life is to hard for you to handle or are you still around the Springfield/Branson area?? Just hoping to "bump" into you someday!

There is alot of hurt here, lots of stupid mistakes, but like dosnt matter said above, do not forget:

meth ruins everyones lives.

Meth is bad.
If you need a high, go marijuana or alcohol,
and even then, in moderation. But stay away from
Meth.

My two cents

Amen. I have friends I grew up with that are lost to it. One family member that is no longer welcome. No matter how hard you try to help them, they just keep up with the lies, stealing,and being sh*t. It hurts to have to cut ties, but after awhile it is the only thing one can do to keep the peace and sanity in your own life. I still love them & think of them or the memoery of them, but they are just zombies of their former selves now. What could have been. I hate meth.
