Even though she was arrested on 5/13/10 for POSSESS-CNTRL SUB WO PRESCRIPTION, I'll bet she just drove her friend to this house so he could run in and deliver some fresh home baked cookies to a sick shut-in. And I'll also bet her friend has no idea how those pills just snuck into his house and jumped in his toilet.

Could it be that she was shot in retaliation for stabbing to death her drug dealing boyfriend back in 2008? Naw... that's preposterous.

Either way, I'm sure if you ask her friends or family, she is a fine upstanding citizen who was just starting to turn her life around.

The Sheriff will give us the real facts soon enough.

No she wasn't a perfect citizen but guess what a dog doesn't deserve that...and I'm pretty sure you or one of your family members are not perfect citizens either.. but if this was you or a relative or someone you know I highly doubt your views would be the same and yea it could of been retaliation for her abusive boyfriend who she stabbed in self defense it amazes me how anyone with a pass .. to some people they automatically Deserve what they got and let me just SPECULATE if this was your child, sister, brother, mother, I wonder if you would speculate the same.
Never understood how people can blame VICTIMS my blessing to the family

Why are we even discussing this? Point blank this shouldn't have happened and I agree no ones perfect so that's no excuse. The family, the friends, or the victim has nothing to explain. My prayers are extended to the family and victim.

You play with matches you get burnt. Not saying she deserves what happen but if you hang with drug dealers what do you expect?

5 shots at close range. WTSP says: "Once in the thigh, twice in the torso and twice in the hip/pelvic area." The shots seem a little low if he was trying to kill her. Is Thomas just a bad shot? Wonder who the baby daddy is? Maybe somebody don't wanna be a baby daddy?
