God bless Ambers family an everyone needs to be praying for baby Hailey an may Cynthia get what she deserves a life behind bars. If she would shoot a pregnant mother she was meaning to kill both an all of us should be concerned if she gets out you no I live in Anderson County SC. an i would not want her near my kids. She shot her freind i would not want a freind like that an i beleive she meant to kill that baby. I hope she stays behind bars.

While it is of course sad and tragic when anyone dies, clearly most people posting here could not possibly be subjective, as you all seemed to know her. The reality is that only two people know what really happened, and perhaps we should wait until the trial to judge someone? Maybe she was terrified and felt threatened, what do WE know? Whenever a young person dies everyone is quick to say how sweet and wonderful they were, but these two girls were friends, so they probably had a lot in common. If one was so nice then the other probably was too. And if one was violent and strung out, then maybe the other was too. Don't pass judgement until you hear the other side, and don't try the poor girl in public when she hasn't been able to defend herself yet! Cyndi looks tiny and skinny, not really able to defend herself. And don't forget that it says that she called police immediately after it happened instead of trying to run. Obviously she grasped the gravity of the situation and knew that her friend needed help. She looks so tortured in every picture the articles show of her, can't ANY of you have ANY sympathy whatsoever??


I started this topic as a voice for Amber. I didn't want it to be a battle of the Hatfield and McCoys. I believe that we are all adults and can speak our peace without hurting others. I am partial because my sister lost a daughter whom she loved dearly, and more bad news might be coming soon about the PRECIOUS BABY GIRL HAILEY. My words I speak are the pain that my family is going though! I have to say that I do feel very bad for Ms. Marchbanks family. I feel one fatal bad decision has grown into a total nightmare.I did not know Ms.Marchbanks and from the things I have read (The closeness of Amber and her). I cant even think of any excuse that would come remotely close to shooting my best friend! I believe that the truth will come out in court,and we can only speculate what did, and what would have, or could have!I just want justice for a dead young lady that can't defend herself or her newborn child that she never got the chance to see. I am sorry for the parents of the accused,but atleast their child is still alive. Ms. Marchbanks has ties and connections in her area. I have read what her neighbors said about "the nice little couple" I feel unfortunatly that Amber and her boyfriend was only in the area for two weeks, so right there the accused has support. Amber's support are only sharing their hurt and pain.

I dont need to hear anything @ best friends arguing does not mean that one KILLLLLLLSSSSSSSS the other! Who gave her right to take 2 people lifes??? Im sorry did God come back and say I allow you to take 2 peoples lifes ffrom them? I dont know where you came from but where I do he is the only one allowed to take someones life and that is to a better place??? Your terrified of your best friend from middle school..you invite here to where your living ???Please save that for someone else im not buying it and the judge and jury will not either. Size means nothing...tears now mean nothing....what means something is 2 kids will never know there mother because someone couldnt control there anger...if she was so scared when she left her @ the pawn shop why didnt she call the police???ill tell you why cause she was @ home planning her own revenge...or was miss innocent so skinny and fragile afraid the police were going to find her guns and pot plants???

Well shes out now. The thing I dont understand is I was watching the news of the story of the woman who cut the others womans throat and took her newborn baby and the woman is alive and she got her baby back and the woman that did that crime is on a million dollar bond... this girl and killed the mother and the baby is not excpected to live a few more days and she is out and getting sympathy letters written in her defense??? You tell me what is wrong with this picture>??? But the only thin I can say is she will have to answer to a person higher than any of us...and then we will have our closure.

It makes me very sad that there is nothing we can do to bring Amber back or to save Hailey...and that a justice system can put a price tag on a life of $100,000. Regardless of the outcome of this case- Cynthia now has the chance to visit with her family members and say goodbye to her mother which is something Hunter and Hailey will never get to do because of her. It sickens me that she gets to go home and spend time being comforted by her supporters while Amber is gone and a baby lay dying. Tears and sorrys do no good now..she has taken away someones life and I hope every breathe she takes she feels amber's presense and never lives a peaceful moment for the rest of her life.

Jessica, I want to thank you for the warm comments. I don't know if there is anything set up at this time. I do know the baby's hospital bill is already skyrocked. I need to speak to Kathy and Frank about this. My email address is pamkiser4@earthlink.net if you wish to contact me later to speak more on this or stories about Amber, her life,passion,music,family that she held near and dear. I do know that Amber's funeral was paid for in a pay plan and everyone who attended were told instead of flowers contributions could be made to the church to go towards her buriel.Kathy and Frank were hit hard by this and work just to survive,and I know now that they will be bombarded with exstensive finacial exspenses.

I have been following this story. I was curious, does anyone know how C. Marchbanks ended up back in SC? I know that she lived here until her parents moved to MD but why did she leave MD and come back to SC? I was just curious - did she move here to go to Clemson or somewhere? Did Justin move here from MD also? I hear that Marchbanks has really good parents. I pray for them and I pray for Amber's family. I can't imagine what they are going through. This must be especially tough for them since (from what I have heard) were close to Cindi. This has probably caused them much confusion as well as saddness.

Cyndi would never kill amber, or a fly for that matter,unless her life was in danger.
I dated her for 5 years,much longer than anyone, even her current bf.I know her.
I also knew amber.She was a party girl as well,same story as cyndi.I grew up with these people,I know they needed drugs to stay sane,I used to be the same type of person.I am a mature,grown,god loving,hard working man now & I am very sad that she was with a guy who was growing 20 plants of marijuana,& had a gun.She is the type to avoid conflicts,that's why she left them at the pawn shop I'm sure!
Every fight,argument,or small tiff we ever got in,she would run away from,because she hated conflict more than anything!I also know that she loved her buddy amber for years,and would never kill her unless her life was threatened!
I will miss amber and her tallented music making skills,we we're in a band for a bit in H.S.
She was a fun,happy,life loving individual.
Cyndi was an energetic,hardworking,fun,swee theart & I can't amagine what happened that made her have a gun in her hand at all durring this conflict.
All I know is if she was out muscled by amber & amber's b/f,while cyndi's b/f wasn't there,maybe she picked up the gun to scare them out of the house?Maybe there was a fight for the gun??I wasn't there,I can only speculate...If anyone has more details,please keep me up to date.

I love both people involved and think this is a huge mistake,and hope that amber makes it to heaven
because she was such a sweetheart.
My deepest regaurds go out to both famillies.
You all have my prayers,and peace be with you!
I was just curious - How did Cindy meet Justin? Is he from SC or MD? You must really be in shock since you were friends with both girls! I can't imagine what happened! Do you think Cindy will move back to MD to be with her family? Not as many people will be familiar with the story there. I wonder how her family is managing having to travel back and forth. I suppose they both have jobs in MD. Do you still stay in contact with them? Were they friends with Amber's family? I guess not anymore. I am praying for all of those concerned, especially the baby, that she lives. Amber's family has been through enough without another funeral to go to.

Actually, I dont know Cyndi only seen pics of her and Amber and just that she called my aunt and uncle mom and dad from what they say. I dont think Cyndi is allowed to leave SC while the trial is in place. It is my understanding that her parents are well off. Not sure how true this is someone mentioned maybe the CEO's of Walmart now again, not so sure if this is the truth or not. It sure has changed many peoples lifes forever!

Maybe Nolan from page 1 can help you out with this. He seemed to be the boyfriend before Justin.

You must be in shock! What kind of parents does Cindy have? They must be shocked as well. How did she meet Justin? Is he from Maryland?

Cyndi always loved S.C. She never cared for MD that much. I met Amber and cyndi the same time in middle school. Amber was a nice girl, but I became very close to cyndi. I never thought that she would hurt anyone. And I never thought in a million years that she would ever hurt Amber. Cyndi Loved Amber. i know that! Anyone who know both cyndi and amber knew that they loved eachother. as for J.Bond I think he lived in S.C. I never met him or heard of him in MD.
My thoughts and preyers are with both families. And i prey for Ambers kids and parents every night.
