I do not believe for one minute that Matthew killed this girl just because he was jealous. He was an excellent officer and a good person. He would help anyone that needed him. You are only taking what you are hearing from her friends. Why don't you talk to the people who worked with him on a daily basis.

You must be delusional or just a sick individual. I think you are both.

Do you understand what you are saying... "you do not believe for one minute that matthew killed this girl (her name is Cait) just because he was jealous." Are you implying that there was a better reason? Also, it is not what her "friends" are saying it is the outcome of an investigation that Matt did shoot his girlfriend, Cait. I am not saying you can not mourn the loss of Matt, but to write such nasty things is totally unacceptable. Why don't you talk to the people that talked and spent time with Cait everyday, people that live in glass houses should not throw stones. I am pretty sure this is not the first time in the history of our world that someone is in disbelief that someone they knew and would never expect to hurt someone has ,in fact, hurt someone.

the last time i checked - the meaning of a good person did not include MURDERING a young girl because he couldn't have her "a direct quote from the papers" you are delusional - you have NO IDEA what this has done to her family - stay out of the business you know nothing about!!!!!

Nancy, last time any of us checked, Cait would still be alive if it weren't for Matt. The news and everyone portrays Matt as some blessed individual, when in actuality he had a history of violence within his relationships and - anyone who knew Matt outside of the place he intended on working - could see something like this happening. Do you have any kids Nancy? Even if you don't, would you respect someone trying to dismiss terrible and cruel behavior based off of how he was while attempting to be an "officer of the law"?
How dare you disrespect an innocent and helpless - now deceased - young girl who had everything in this world going for her, when it was stolen by a JEALOUS and unbalanced, psychotic, police officer. Why don't you talk to Matt's friends and not the people who he worked with on a daily basis. He had to impress you all and wanted to appear like an excellent officer because he wanted a job. He murdered his girlfriend. Murdered.
Last time I checked, an "excellent officer" is someone who protects people.. strangers and especially those he/she is close to. Instead, Matt did the very opposite. Take your opinion and shove it.

Nancy, I knew them both. Did you? Deep in side yourself you know what even the people on Matts blog are not talking about. They instead wish the best for his family and leave it at that; just as i will, but to give Matt anything beyond best wishes for his family should never happen. Let God judge! I wish you could have only walked by Caitlin on the street and you would under stand. Best wishes to you Nancy.

Matt was not the horrible guy everyone is claiming him to be. i knew Matt for awhile... and i saw the caring and generous side of him, the side that would do anything for anyone. i didn't know Cait all that long, i actually met her through Matt.. but what has happened is very unfortunate & may they both rest in peace. and my heart goes out to both families & friends. not a day will go by where they won't need the strength to go on day by day. but Matt and Cait were great people. they are people that knew Cait more but their are people that knew Matt more..everyone is intitled to their opinions. but like i said let them rest in peace & lets so them that they are greatly missed and never forgotten. and that we think of them everyday.

i could care less how caring you "think" this low life was - he was supposed to "protect" and serve the public (oh by the way that included Caitlin) not murder at will because he was a jerk!!!! i hope for the sake of all those suffering from the loss of that beautiful girl he suffers evry day in abject misery - the way her family is!!!!!

like i said everyone is entitled to their opinion but i just don't think its fair that his family has to read all the negativity. two great people were lost.(in your eyes one) but to people that were friends of both two people. all im saying is let them rest in peace. i understand both sides.. never said ANYONE deserved this (including Cait) its very unfortunate. That's all im saying! i don't think its fairy to wish misery on his family, once again NOT saying caits family deserved it bc they didn't, at all.i just can't picture being a parent and coming on and reading the comments some people are saying ( coming from both sides, his & hers) but the only thing we can do is move forward and do what we can in our power to remember both in good faith, or in your case just one of them.

personally, i think you people are ignorant. the fact of the matter is they are both gone..how would you feel if your son or daughter was accused of this crime and you were reading comments like this about your child. i personally think its disgusting. no one is ever going to know the exact story as to what happened besides those two. ive know matt for a very very long time, i have seen him at his worse and he has never harmed anyone. & what about the girls he was with before? what about people that im sure he has had arguments with before? he didnt go around shooting them did he? no i dont believe so. & to the person saying he is a physco HE WAS AN OFFICER, THEY DONT HIRE PEOPLE WHO ARE UNSTABLE AND JUST GIVE THEM A GUN LIKE HOW DUMB ARE YOU! seriously, use common sense instead of just trying to blame what is being said about people.. notice how there were no details in the investigation? whos prints were on the gun last, was anyone else there? why did she leave with him at the bar? why didnt she call the cops? or how come the blood spatter, & alll that stuff was not released? why wasnt it made public? and you think if he was SUCH A BAD PERSON the CHIEF OF POLICE would say what an amazing cop he was?? how he turned everything in on time, the people he busted from DOING HIS JOB! if the police thought he was unstable, number one he wouldnt have a god damn job! he went into work the day before, & i quote" HE WAS FINE!" i myself personally talked to him before this occured and he was his normal self, said nothing about anything, and nothing seemed wrong. so for you people to sit here AND TALK ABOUT SOMEONE WHO IS DEAD & NOT EVEN ABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES & YOU PEOPLE BELIEVE WHAT IS TOLD IS FRIGGIN DISGUSTING! how do you know she didnt shoot him? and then herself? think about it, he was a cop, he knows where to shoot to kill, so why would he shoot his girlfriend in the head then himself in the chest? hmm, i find that very very strange. shootin yourself in the chest seems like something someone who DIDNT KNOW HOW TO USE A GUN WOULD DO! all im saying is you people are disgusting for bashing someone who is not even here with us now based on what you hear. let the both rest in peace like a normal considerate human being would do. think about if your child was in matts spot and people were saying this about your child? would you feel good about yourself? i doubt it, i know i wouldnt be able to deal with shit like that being said about my child. and personally all your doing is making it hard on his family and friends, me speaking on my behalf also. ive known him for years and he may have had some problems here and there, but i have never seen him hard anyone, and if he ever did, he did it to himself. by hittin something or doing something dumb that was NOT TO HARM ANYONE ELSE! hit walls, hit cars, NEVER PEOPLE. no matter how many were around! he just got his life together and became a police officer, why would he wanna ruin that for himself? why would he wanna ruin his life like that? cause personally i know i wouldnt. its like a drug addict recovering, getting an awesome job as a cop, then going out doing drugs while being an officer. im sorry cops dont just give guns to people who are unstable. last i checked you have to pass tests to prove you are ABLE TO HAVE A GUN. if they just gave everyone a gun who wanted to become a cop, im sure thered be a lot of people not existing in this world right now. so why dont you people get some god damn respect because these comments make me sick to my stomach, no one will ever know what happened besides those two, and since neither of them cant defend themselves leave it the fuck alone. they are both gone, there not coming back, thats that. let us all grieve in peace already. grow up.
