most of his family as well as his children are in Virginia other than wife and step children in south carolina and the question that we all have is could he have been set up after all he was working through his vacation to give his sister away at her wedding we've heard that this wasn't suppose to be a call Dennis was dispatched to this t-shirt supposibly had a females blood but you end the investigation with just two males,apparently even though dennis hadn't called anything in a civilian had to call in that he was down do they check on their officers?? I pray they don't send officers out on these calls without back up still. all we really want are some answers and we do thank everyone for all their support but do believe that his children are who suffer the most and some believe it could've been done for money will we ever have all the answers?? who knows....

I feel for Tabatha and her children and my heart goes out them my cousin loved her and loved his job thank you to the community and everyone for your support and help in closing this case. I do believe they shouldn't seek the death that is the easy way out they should get life without parole so they have to live with thought that they killed someone but they should never be free this is the second person in our family to be murdered the first in VA Joshua Compton his killers only served 3yrs and i don't think we want another horrific event just because they are young that is why Josh's killers got what they did because they were teenagers but they still know right from wrong and so did these boys. first my own brother now my cousin, I pray the courts do the right thing either life w/o parol or capital punishment if they won't send them to prison.
