Debbie and I have been friends for many years. There is absolutely no way she could of done this. This is a conspiracy and the crime has to be put on someone because it is the murder of a council woman, so at this point they have to pin it on someone.

There is no way she did this and I can't wait until she is vindicated. Stay strong Deb. We are praying for your release.

Thank you granolagirl I am total agreement. She is not capable of anything so heineous. Berryville needs to get the person who did the crime and those people who made grave mistakes in the investigation and leave the family alone.

I used to live next door to the Smith's in the 60's and 70's. I am so blown away about this story. Being neighbors and around the same age, Tim and I used to hang out at times. Debbie was a bit older, but she was cool and had a great sense of humor. I remember Gail somewhat. I didn't see her much. I think maybe she was away at school. Rosa was so beautiful and spoiled her son. Their father Timothy, Sr. was a nice guy, a cop for New York. This story is so surreal. So sorry Gail is dead. What a tragedy. My mom is trying to find Rose Smith, since they kept in touch after the Smith family moved from Queens to Virginia. If anyone knows where Rose is please post if you can. God be with the family.
