Everybody knew that Sammy would get it one day. He's murdered before and injured a lot of people. It was bound to happen.

This is terrible. Bobby was a good person who had recently started hanging with the wrong crowd. Hope they can prove self defense.

Thank you Jason. I don't buy the " he was good til he started running with the wrong crowd" People make their own decisions, nobody forced him to do anything. Take responsibility for your own actions. Just my opinion...

First of all jag! Bobby was my daddy and he would have never in his life taken someone elses life. He was defending his self. Sammy has killed and stabbed so many people. How many people did he think he could do this to and get away with it. I will stand behind my daddy til the end.

Yeah Sammy had just stabbed a guy a couple months ago. If Gaither would have done his job Sammy wouldn't have been out of jail!!!

Laura, never did I once say your dad deserved getting murdered!!! I never once said it wasn't in self defense. I just said I don't believe people should say " he ran with the wrong crowd " I apologize for insinuating that. It wasn't my intention. Looking back, I see how it looked but I honestly didn't mean it like that. I meant people in general. May God give you and your family peace during this time.

I just mean he had started allowing some not so good people hang around his house and in the past he never did that. I knew Bobby for several years and other than some driving issues he got in trouble for he wasn't someone that made trouble for himself. He took care of his wife rachel in their home until she passed away this year.I didnt know the man that was killed so I can't speak about him. Sure good people can do bad things, I am just speaking from what I know of Bobby.

First of all if your father didnt want Sammy at his house why did he call my uncle cell and leave a message asking sammy to come to his house this was on the 20th of June we have the recording so this isnt adding up if someone doesnt want you at their house why call and want them to come to your home. But my family misses Sammy and please this is for everyone reading KEEP YOUR NEGATIVE COMMENTS TO YOUSELF AND HAVE A LITTLE RESPECT FOR OUR FAMILY... RIP my uncle Sammy Sturgill you will be missed and still are loved so much...

First of all I knew Sammy,I went to school with him from elementary school on...I know his sister and his mom.they are good decent people....i also had a sibling murdered in Caldwell County...just because Sammy made some wrong choices in life,does not mean that he deserved to die on the streets like he did.I'm not saying he was at that house with good or bad intentions because idk..I'm just saying that he was someone's loved one and his family deserves to mourn his death without him being trashed on here..He's gone,his judgement comes from God now,so let his family have this time to mourn.God Bless his family and may Sammy RIP.
Please
