Obviously you know who ANthony and Kathy are to write what you did, but how about you say nice way to raise your son Ms. OConnor since it was he who was the idiot who did this. Manslaughter is the accidental killing of somebody, but it does not excuse him.

This is such a tragedy what happened to Krystal. No one deserves this to happen to them especially Krystal. She was a beautiful person both inside and out and touched so many people in so many ways. She was more than a friend to me but family. I think everyone needs to keep their opinions to themselves though and let Krystal rest in peace. everything said affects not only the people who say it but her family as well let them grieve without hereing this negative nonsense. For those of you who know Krystal know that there wasnt a bad bone in her body and she was good all through. Her mom put it perfectly when she said to stop trying to make sense out of her death b/c it will NEVER make sense. If you want to talk about Krystal then just reminisce about all the good stuff and stop focusing on the negative.Krystal was a extremly loyal person to both her friends and family and they were loyal back to her everyone who knows Krystal as a person truly loves her believe me its hard not to. She will never be forgotten and will always remain in our hearts. No one should speak on a situation they know nothing about it only makes it harder on everyone else to deal with the situation. If you werent there then you DO NOT know what happened and Krystal WAS NOT a lost soul how dare anyone even say that about her it just shows you nothing about Krystal and Krystal always picked her friends right like i said she was good to her friends vice versa. So if you dont have anything positive to write about Krystal then you should really not write anything b/c then you didnt know her at all.

I don't personally know Krystal and I feel terrible for her family. No family deserves this. But everyone is looking at the shooter Joseph O'Connor as a scumbag. Let me tell you something, Joe did not kill her!! It was Anthony. And Joe won't talk cause he is afraid of his own life. Anthony took Joe along on purpous to pin the murder on him. I know Joe and Anthony very well. Joe is not capable of this!! Anthony is a piece of shit that is a wanna be mobster. I know the truth will come out! If anyone has any info please contact the Bergenfield police or anthony will do this again. And maybe your son or daughter, or best friend will be sitting in jail for a crime he didn't commit. RIP Krystal West. A life taken way too soon. My prayers are with her family and friends. And may this scumbag be brought to justice.

How dare you say that about Anthony you piece of SH*T... Him and Krystal were like family and he would NEVER do anything to hurt her. You may know Anthony and Joch very well, and you say he ain't capable of this.... Well all the evidence and statements pointed to him and he was charged with manslaughter. Manslaughter is an accidental killing you idiot, so he didn't need to be capable of anything, he f*cked up and did something stupid by accident... You can say all you want about Anthony, but you obviously don't know him too well and you obviously didn't know the relationship he and Krystal had. If you aren't praying or wishing for the best to Krystal's family and friends, please don't even comment, especially on a forum where people are grieving. The idiot who started this forum should not have titled it murder without getting their facts straight because that was not the case at all. If people are looking at Joe as a scumbag, it's because of idiots like yourself and the person who titled the blog saying it was a murder. The truth already came out and you don't know it so keep ya mouth shut!

First may the young woman Krystal West r.i.p. This is a very tragic story and i know and honestly feel Joe did this crime. I wasn't there or anywhere but joe isn't capable of this. It dosen't make sense. Those other two i firmly believe should be getting looked at. I hope the bergen county crime unit puts the right person in prison. I believe that they are responsible. Innocent until proven guilty Joe is being wrongfully accused.

****You piece of Sh*%!!!!You dont know Anthony from a hole in the wall and I hope you burn in hell for saying what you said about him. You claim to know anthony and Joseph so well, you dont at all. Anthony loved Krystal and would NEVER EVER do anything to put her in harms way. Joseph wont talk cause he is a piece of SH*% and has no respect for people grieving to tell the truth that he did it. The truth has already come out so stop saying it will come out when it already has. the person who is in jail right now is the right person who should rot in jail FOR LIFE...JOSEPH OCONNER

you obviously dont know shit.... You don't know anthony for shit b/c if you did then you would know that you are soooooooooooooooo fucking far from the truth that you sound so retarded!!!! Maybe if you actually read into the case and knew the facts you would know that Joseph Oconner killed Krystal you peice of worthless shit!!!! Did you happen to see the Bergen Record yesterday and see his picture from when he went to court he didnt look scared he looked like he didnt give a fuck. A NORMAL person in that situation would be showing some type of emotion and he showed none and if you supposably know anthony soooo well then why dont you speak up? I know you don't know anthony just by how dumb your response is and who are you? why dont you use your real name since you know soooo much!?!? maybe b/c you don't know shit. Anthony was very very good friends with Krystal and if you knew him so well then you would have known that.you're false accusations are just causing problems and if someone trys to mess up the case the police are working on then it will only hurt Krystals family. Allow her family to grieve in peice without your false accusations all the evidence is proven and you will see. you dont know Krystal so you have no right to any opinion. All you care about is your peice of shit friend Joe who took away the life of a beautiful person. Stop trying to defend someone like him. He wont talk b/c hes a peice of shit that only cares about himself. Krystals family deserves closure and please just let Krystal RIP. Krystal is now in a better place watching over everyone who she loves and cares about. Justice will be brought for Krystal.

First I too want to express my condolences to Ms. West family. No matter what, no one shuold die like this. My thought and prayers go out to them
With that said I know some people involved with ths and I understand that Joe O'Connor took a lie detector test on Wednesday that came back inconclusive. Understand that he is detoxing from whatever drugs he was taking which I guess make him jittery which made the test unreliable. But if he was guilty, why would he take a lie detector test ? Has Anthony volunter to take one ?

Update: Three arrested in Bergenfield murder
By JasmineKhiry / News 12 My Town | 10/17/2008 03:12 PM
Three individuals were recently arrested for the murder of Krystal West of Bergenfield earlier this month.

Joseph F. O’Connor 21, Anthony S. Sgobbo, 24 and Kathleen Sgobbo, 51 were arrested after an investigation revealed that on Oct. 1, O’Connor went to West's Bergenfield apartment and fatally shot her in the head with a semi-automatic handgun. After shooting West, O’Connor tampered with the crime scene and fled along with Anthony Sgobbo, prosecutors allege.

Initially the crime scene suggested a suicide, however further investigation revealed that O’Connor had staged the homicide to make it appear as if West committed suicide. The Sgobbos' allegedly hindered police in their efforts to investigate. The exact circumstances surrounding the shooting remain under investigation and the three may face further or more serious charges.

O’ Conner was charged with the aggravated manslaughter, unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, and tampering with evidence. Kathleen Sgobbo and her son Anthony Sgobbo were charged with hindering the investigation.

O’Connor is scheduled to appear in Superior Court of Bergen County on Oct. 20. Kathleen Sgobbo has been released on bail. Anthony Sgobbo’s first appearance has not yet been set.

A Poem for little Krys.

She's the rainbow during the rain
She's the laughter when there's pain
Big smiles to conquer the world
She's everyone's Babegurl.

We are her "Peoples"
Stray cats, young folks and old
She loves all, and all loves her
She's the heart that's made of Gold.

A sister, a cousin, a best friend,
A neice, a boo, a daughter,
A grandaughter, a princess, an angel
She's our everything
She's our Krystal.
Love you Krys, big kiss! See you in the morning.
