I do Hope Josh doesnt get the death sentence or life imprisonment, He really doesn't deserve it at all.

I think of him often. I don't know him but understand where he is coming from. I too hope that they see if he was really living under these conditions, that some people can only take so much. Most teens don't just up and kill for no reason. Hope he is allowed to get good therapy and maybe can someday have a good peaceful life. May God watch over you Josh.

I think that it is all a messed up situation. I hope and pray that some how the lord sees him through all of this. I know that murder is a sin but i don't think as his situation as murder. I feel like it was just a young boy in a very difficult life style needing help that no one saw or could even help him with and that was his way of getting the help he needed. I hope and pray that the out come is in the favor of Josh.

well as it sounds none of you know that if you beat someone to death that it is murder and he should have ask for help if that is what he wanted you dont beat someone then expect to just say i needed help and they say ok lets get you some help so you dont kill anyone else.
god will see him through and will determine his destany

From my understanding of it all, and anyone feel free to correct me if this wrong. But wasn't Josh at one point given back to his fathers custody from Life Skills?

if he wasn't planning on killing his father why did they find a 6ft hole in the woods where he had dug,,My opinion is that he was scared to ask for help knowing what his father was gonna do to him so he took care of him his way I believe he had it all planned out....& murder is murder thou shall not kill???? I believe he deserves what ever comes to him but yet again it really doesn't matter once he lives his life he'll pay for all of what he's done when he leaves this world ...since no one lives 4ever & you pay 4 all your sins when you die according to the bible

Murder is a sin and you can be forgiven for your sins,,,, if you repent and live right. He may still have time to be forgiven and God will decide not us. Until then Pray for his soul.

I guess there's no since of having the "Ten Commandments" Thou Shall Not Kill,,, if anybody forgives a soul that is as guilty as he is he deserves to be punished to the fullest

If we were to examine all our lives and disect them I'm sure we would find that we have all commited sin. In fact I'm sure that we've all commited hell worthy trespasses whether we know of them or not.

For you to pass judgment onto Josh Fritz is neither your job nor your duty. In fact you have no right to judge anyone else or to even say they are full of sin and deserved to be punished, its your saviors duty to judge how rife with sin any mortal man or women is and not yours.

Your judgment alone has condemned you.

Have some compassion, Christ did.

Peace,
Jon

If he was abused by his father then why isn't there anything in the reports about it. Usually when something this occurs they would bring stuff like that up.
