kelvin owens,coward,scumbag,dog beater,woman beater,cold blooded heart less and thougtless murderer, admitted to the premeditated killing of Bridgette Vavonese on April 24 2008. Why has he not been charged? Why have the nye county police not filed charges against him and all his low life drug using/drug selling/drug addicted and thieving friends. They know who they are. Why is kelvin held proteted at UMC Medical center in Las Vegas with out warrents issued and charges filed.This worthless human garbage stole the life of the sweetest caring and most harmless person. Like the pussy boy that he is he shot himself trying to survive and gain sympathy. Had he shot himself in the manner that he shot Bridgette the ball less bastard would be dead now. Our tax dollars pay for his rehabilitation and voice box. Our tax dollars should also pay for the arrest of and prosicution of him and his criminal companions.

The crime happened in Nye county so nothing will be done. The so called sheriff department here will not even ticket traffic offenders they spend more time in restaurants taking a break then they do actually fighting crime. The sheriff,s weekly report is 90% domestic battery these cases are easy to solve someone calls the crime in and the officers go see who is beaten and bloody. The district attorney is also part of the problem staying sober seems to be one of his biggest problems and now he wants to be a judge.

I wonder what they would do and how fast they would act on this if Bridgette was their family member? A sister, their mom, or just someone that they loved? Would they wait, protect and make excuses for the perp? We who are family of Bridgette want justice for her, and we want it in this lifetime! It is only right!

I just wanted to say that I am SO VERY SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS, to the family of this woman. I don't know any details, but my daughter was also murdered OVER TWO YEARS AGO in Nye County, in the bedroom of the nephew of a County Commissioner who had been stalking her; no invesitgation was ever done by the sheriff's office and they stated her death was an "accident" (she was shot from less than 12 inches away, directly through the right eye socket with a 9mm rifle). I understand your anger, frustration and remorse... but I urge caution... I spoke out against the Sheriff's department and the DA's office and our family has been retaliated against horribly!!! PLEASE BE CAREFUL, AND MY DEEPEST SYMPATHIES AND PRAYERS GO OUT TO ALL THOSE WHO LOVED THIS WOMAN AND ARE SUFFERING HER LOSS!!!!!!!(If you would like more information; Ronya Qutob was my daughter's name, she was murdered June 23, 2006, there is a topix thread about her... I am not very computer savvy so don't know how to direct people to it) AGAIN, I AM SO SORRY FOR YOU, AND SO SAD TO SEE SIGNS THAT A SIMILAR THING HAS HAPPENED IN NYE COUNTY AGAIN.

"possesion of and unregistared firearm"

there are no requirements to register a firearm.

BTW...the sheriff doesn't prepare charges, the DA does, the sheriff did their job, arrested him. After that look at Beckett and crew.

"the sheriff did their job, arrested him. After that look at Beckett and crew."
DA Beckett has been a bit busy of late defending his DUI arrest. I heard he WASN'T drunk though after both accidents - he had an unknown diabetic issue. He's back on the job now though, fighting crime as we speak.

Have you noticed how many people are jumping on this diabetic band wagon when they are involed in accidents, and its their fault. I have been a diabetic for years and one beer as he said he had is not going to make you pass out. He knew about these cases and decided to use it as a cop out for himself. He is a jerk with a capital "J".
And no I have never had any dealings with him.

The voice box was a mistake after kelvin owens shot bridgette in the head (by his own addmission)he then tried to shoot himself through one cheek and out the other cheek. The bullet struck bone or tooth and exited out his eye so he lost the sight in one eye. kelvin owens then tried to blame another scum bag for both shootings. Had it not been for the good work of the nye county sherrifs office this scum bag would have walked on this murder. The sad fact is he planned this murder for days if not weeks. So far in this case both the Sherrifs department and the D A's office have both done an excelent job. The proof will be in the trial which is coming in a couple of months.

The trial was resceduled to Apirl of 2010. The newspaper stories are not correct. I have sat thru all the court proceedings in this case and one of the facts is that for what ever his reasons much like a Scott Peterson, Drew Peterson or O.J. Simson. kelvin owens not only shot and killed Bridgette,but had planned this crime out in such detail and foresight,that he staged the crime scene,and during the prelimanary hearing against his attournys advice he stood in open court and accussed from his eye witness account another scum bag of shooting both Bridgette and himself. When that didn't work he tried to blame another person(now he has blamed two people). He thinks he is smarter than every one including the evidence. Thank God for the good investigative work of the Nye County Sherrifs Deputies. He also admitted to the murder while he was in the hospital being treatted for his self inflicted wound. His confession can not be used because it would violate his rights. The saddest and most tradgic thing is Bridgette has been murdered,has no rights, she is dead and will never see,touch,talk to her children,mother, sister,grandchildren, friends ever again. The world has lost a beautiful little person.
