I challenge readers to research the names Chris & Amanda Sturgill to get the details that WBIR may not have yet.

"If" (& when) this guy is found guilty he should fry.

I went to school with Chris Sturgill and his brother Felix.
What happened to that family is beyond horrible. I cannot believe that someone could do anyone like that especially those three little boys.

I attended the service for the family which took place in Red Bird (Kentucky).
It was the saddest thing ever i have seen. There were 2 caskets...One was for chris and 1 of the boys and the other for amanda with their other 2 kids.
So many people were there. They had a huge screen set up with pictures of their lives.
I am so glad they finally caught the devil that done this. I hope while he is in jail he gets totured, beat up everyday and nasty things done to him everyday.

Chris has 2 brothers (Felix and Brandon) and one sister (Nikki)

Chris and Amanda Sturgill and their three small children were found dead in their burned out mobile home in rural Leslie County in February 2004.
Chris was only 25 years old at the time and Amanda was 21 years old.
If i can recall correctly their boys ages were 4, 3 and 18 months.

This gentleman is IMMUNE to prosecution !!

His defense ?-->> He is a PRODUCT of family, peer, and public school influence !

Hard to beat those three for turning out warped, uncivilized citizens !!

AND so it goes .....

I knew Amanda and Chris personally. I hope Clayton Jackson is found guilty of all charges and those who had something to do with it. They know who they are. All dies due to Lethal Injection. RIP Chris, Amanda, and their 3 beautiful boys!! I love you guys!!

If he killed them then I say kill him!!! I am tired of my tax money feeding these heartless killers. I mean if there is no shadow of a doubt that he did it then end his life. That simple! That's why people keep killing people..they get by with it.(Maybe I should be thinking about that ex of mine) Well, think about it.
