This guy has been in trouble all his life. He had just been released last year after serving part of a 5 year sentance (15 years, 3 sentances running together) and then was sent back but released on ERC. He should have never been released. His alcohol and drug problems and possible being diagnosed bi-polar have never been properly addressed by the Mississippi Department of Corrections. I am so sorry to hear of this tragedy. It could have been avoided if the State of Mississippi had does it job and kept him locked up where he belonged. Do a search for 86842 or his name at www.mdoc.state.ms.us for details.

first let me start off by saying to mr durbens family my thoughts and prayers are with your family. i am john matthew hughes sister and i want to set one record straight the mississippi department of corrections was and is well aware that my brother is not only bi polar nut suffers from paranoid schizophernia, my family begged our justice system more than once to send him to mental facility so he could recieve his medication and treatment but instead they put him in general poplulation in prison and didnt give him his medication we have the papers from his psychologist stating his mental illness. now this doesnt make light that a man is gone at his hands but none of my brothers other crimes were ever violent, something is wrong and until he is found no one will know. my family is hurting for mr durbens family and nothing i say can bring him back or change what is done but i am so sorry and i am asking for forgiveness on behalf of my family we all are hurting and i have prayed asking that the lord guide us all in the right direction to walk with this mans family in their time of pain and suffering and my family with theirs.

kdev, the woman had nothing to do with it and is trying to appologise for her ill brother's actions. He is paying for it. She is paying for it, the families of those killed by him are paying for it. You try and understand yourself - and shut up.

I understand what you are saying about your brother if his illness had been treated this tragedy may not have happened, John was let down by the system in the USA... I have watched his interview and it is so very sad, I do not believe he is some serial killer and a believer in the anti Christ the press write a lot of untruths, it is very sad a man, 2 men were killed this may have beeen prevented......I am in the uk AM WRITING A BOOK I wish to write to your brother is he in Ohio?

I personally think that well, yes he deserve to be in prison but not rest of his life, everyone need second chance. He is messed up altho i feel sorry for him and i am afraid for him. He isnt evil, i know that.

So sorry you and your family are going through this, I just watched the document of John for the first time and agree he does need help. What he did was wrong and he does need to pay but they also need to give him the help he needs. I suffer from some of the same problems as him and I guess in a way feel how he feels but for him to go out and kill people well there's no excuse for that and even though he will be in prison the rest of his life they should still help him.

Hi. My name is Cindy, and I also watched the 41 minute interview. In the interview he seemed to truthful and very anxious not to reveal to much information. I feel sorry for John, I feel his the real victim here. I believe Wendy said her brother was suffering from mental illness, but in his interview he believes its power and insight to things other people don't have, he shouldn't be in a damn prison wasting away to nothing while his entire family know the truth, he should be treated properly in a facility where top of the line pychoaligists can make the call after speaking to him in confidentiality. So he may feel comfort and free to speak whatever is one his mind, I'm 33 years old and my ol'man has been in and out of jail for a multitude of crimes, but he was not and is not crazy , just under the influence of alcohol and other influences. I missed out on a lot of my daddy, and if John has any heart left, his daughter should fill his heart so much it could burst. Stay smart John , and don't lose you head and please remember no one deserves to die, especially if you swap positions with whoever your power tripping on.
