After hearing the news last night...I as many, was elated. Living in Richmond, I rarely see the CDT stickers on cars like I do when I come home, this morning driving to work I saw a sticker on the car in front of me, and I know that's a sign from God that justice will be served!!!!!!!! Senseless. HE NEEDS TO FRY.

Looks like the killer was six years older than his victim. And I doubt the killer graduated from anything, unless you count credits from juvenile detention. Can we get some confirmation on this? Did they know each other? I hope this arrest will give the family at least a small bit of closure. God Bless you, I know it must be hard to have to relive that day over and over again like a nightmare you can't wake up from.(excuse my grammar)
They were indeed classmates...the age difference is due to the passage of time...Chris would have been 26 last December.

You are nothing but a piece of garbage. May you rot below. The $40 was not worth taking a young mans life and ruining what life you had. But I suspect you had no life. You deserve to be put away for the rest of your miserable life.

Hats off the HPD.

Chris is an inspirtation to all of us, anyone that knew him was lucky. He will forever be in our hearts and this will bring a small bit of closure to some, ease some of the heartache that will always be there as a result of this tradgic event. I hope that this guy gets the penalty he deserves, been a long time waiting, good job HPD....

RIP CDT. I want to know who was with HM. I have my ideas but I'm not throwing names out there since I could be wrong. Let's just say that he may already be in prison on an unrelated incident.

Let me start off by saying that I do not know what happened to Bradley Lamar aka "hustleman" over these last 10 years. If he did committ this crime, which I really want to believe he didnt but in my heart I know he probably did considering the path he was going down. His dad is a preacher (retired military) and his mom works in the school system and he was raised in a good middle class home. He has always been the one to try and fit in, but if this is how he thought he was fitting in then it was just not the way to go. He definitely did not need the money!!
Yes he did go to school with Chris so he knew exactly who he was.
I truely am sorry to the Tromly family. This is coming from the extended Holmes family. Justice has to be served and Lamar has to be punished for what he has done.
My prayers go out to both the Tromly and Holmes families. Both parents have lost their sons, but it did not have to be like this. Chris's life did not have to be taken. Finally the game is over for Lamar!!
Lamar, I love you and always will but this was not a game you should have played!! A youngs mans life is gone! May GOD please be with you! Please let us know who else helped you committ this BRUTAL crime!! PLEASE!!

Young Black Male (YBM) crime is out of control in the 757, while Black leaders and prechers deflect the truth by blaming society and The White man.
The truth is this level of YBM violence didn't exist before rap noise presented thuggery as they way to keep it real and what it means to be truly Black. No other race embraces the criminal way of life as these YBM thugs see it as their destiny.
What a sad way to grow up. It's a shame since they have much to offer society. It's Obama time- Make that change.

Lori Carlson...Tromly was 19 when he was killed over 6 years ago. Lamar "Hussleman" Holmes was the same age....he is now 25. Do the math? They did go to school with each other at KHS and were in the same grade. They were not friends but I'm pretty sure they knew of each other...
Anyways...Well done HPD! A lot of us KHS soccer alum and friends had an idea it was Lamar from the beginning. He robbed two people on Apollo that same night. From then on that POS was on everyone's radar. I also have a theory of who else was with him too. I don't want to throw a name out and be wrong...I want to know for sure. I want both of these motherf****rs to burn.

If he lived on Madrid, chances are this POS went to school with Chris Tromley. It makes it even more barbaric that he murdered someone he knew. What a piece of garbage;nothing more than an animal. I hope he rots in hell.
I agree with the barbaric happenstance, but step back. Do you think that low life scum psycho had the intelligence to be in school?

Mr. and Mrs. Holmes are wonderful people. They did not raise their son to do this. I will pray for both sets of parents.

These wonderful parents need to vist the school systems and churches to tell this story. I could do some good. Be sure not to leave out the $40 part. Their son was a big time POS with two arms, two legs, and a gun. Fry him soon and get it over with. Call Vepco to let them know there will be a brown-out when the lucky guy gets to flip the switch.

being a psychopath is a mental disability, it is not necessarily the product of poor parenting or rough environment. Some people are just twisted, that is how they are wired, who is to say who is to blame, in a sick way, it is almost not every the psychopaths fault, but, you have to be held accountable for your actions no matter what your state of mind. there is really nothing else to it.
Is that so

It appears the parents of this POS are just as responsible. They enabled him to live at home all these years since graduating from KHS. Could they not see the path their son was heading down? Someone saw this and could have intervened. WAKE UP AMERICA, parents need to take responsibility for their children.
