I knew both of these people. You keep calling him a monster,a creep, a lunatic and don't even know him. You paint her a saint, a perfect person now of course, post mortem. I'm here to say neither is true. He was one of the nicest people I ever met. Always concerned with my welfare, ask about my child and how we were doing and would go out of his way to help if it was ever needed. I never saw him w/o a smile on his face. Lucy was loud, vulgar, mean-spirited and over the top, in EVERY way. She fooled around on EVERY man she was ever with, and there were a lot. They say different people bring out different things in people. That must be true. This is not the face of the man I knew. This is the face of a man that had been through hell. Maybe that's what she brought into that relationship. Pure hell. It will never excuse the violence.But, maybe explain what happened.
Chris has been our friend for many years and when he told us he was dating Lucy we could not believe it we figured she would kill him, she was still married to another man and your correct in saying she was loud, vulgar, and mean spirited in every way. Chris has small children and I hope they recover from this. His parents are the best and since this has happened his father has passed from cancer. I'm sorry Lucy died but if she and her son hadn't stolen Chris's money he worked hard for to buy their drugs maybe this could have been prevented. Someone should take a look at both of their criminal records and then take a look at Chris' record and find out both of theirs was way longerrrrrr than his.

All of the comments about Chris are very untrue he is not at all like the person you all have described I have known him many years and although this is a tragic accident and someone died which I have never met I am sure this was an accident ......Both his parents are very good people though his father has passed away since this has happened .... Chris would never have killed intentionaly....This was all a misunderstanding .......
