It will likely be on the front page of the NGN tomorrow.

At least AccessNorthGA had enough decency to wait until the authorities could gather information on the tragedy, instead of going on rumors and hearsay last week.

If you weren't so ignorant and stupid, you'd see that Faye was criticizing the newspaper for picking up the story.

Go away, scumbag.

I think there is a lot of misunderstanding going on here. Does the name calling make it any better? And please everyone, don't start yelling at me - I'm just asking a question. The same thing I'd do if a gang of children were name calling. If it doesn't help the situation, why start a fire that ends up burning everybody, including yourself?

I feel sorry for the children who have to suffer from the front page news.

If you interperted my concern for anything else then you evidently mis-read it.

I did not bring the subject up it was posted as a news article.

If I was a gossip I would have expounded on the story spreading it as rumor and innuendo.

Newspaper people will sell their soul to get front page coverage above the fold.

Bless you.

I do feel for that family and they are and will remain in my prayers.
I know what it's like to have the loss of a loved one make the front page, and while not overjoyed about it, I realize that tragic news will be covered on the front page of the local papers.
With that said, do any of you complain about wrecks, fires or any other tragedy where fatalities occur, being local front page news? When a story such as these are in the paper, do you lay the paper aside and refuse to read it or do you go ahead and read? Do you avoid reading on websites that carry local news or do you click on the news and read? How many times have we,(myself included), said in conversation, "did you see this or that in the paper" or included news stories in our conversations? How often do we talk about the news in other areas of the world that we read via newspaper or internet?
Like it or not, the media are doing their job (even when reporting on tragedies), and we rely on them for news in our area and others.

People have been talking about this on here and elsewhere more than they should before the fact's were known. Before the paper was in print.
Scanner's were turned on as alway's.

Pete, your family is in our prayers.

Do not pay attention to any of the hatefulness you read here, the ones who really care have your family in their prayers.

I hope the children are doing OK, considering the circumstances.

Please accept our condolences on your loss.

wasnt the harpers divorced? And where is her boyfriend? He is a creap! i couldnt believe she would be with that thing. She is a beautiful woman,and her children are beautiful also. the police need to look at the boyfriend.I cant believe its a murder/suicide
For the children's sake, let's please try not to voice opinions or speculations regarding this tragedy on the Internet. It could turn into an ugly back and forth argument that will help no one and certainly hurt the children. PLEASE, PLEASE consider them before you carry these thoughts any further online. Pete your family is also in my prayers.

<quoted text>Which boyfriend? The hairstylist & her were having an affair for over 2yrs. The children even know him> They were in public together often , eating at the griddle every morning 4 breakfast, but I was told they broke up several months ago! The divorce was filed, but not final. She was with her husband only on weekends, she even had the kids 2 keep the boyfriend a secret, so she wouldnt loose that big house in the divorce! The hair stylist boyfriend gave me the creeps as well, but I dont think he is capable of doing this! She may have had other affairs, & the husband went crazy finding out this info!!!
Is this gossip really important to you mountain man? Does your comments or speculation help anyone or does it hurt their children? Don't want to 'ANNOY' you, but thought you might want to consider the feelings of some innocent children - and then again - maybe you don't care.

I knew Paulette for a short time while we were taking a college night class. She was unique but there was not one night that she did not call her children to tell them goodnight and how much she loved them ... her daughter called her and even came to class a few times and would draw pictures of her and her mommy! Paulette was a very loved and devoted mother and was sincerely trying to get out of her unhappy marriage. This is a tragedy, a tragedy that will effect those childrens lives forever. A memory that will always be with them every where they go and will probably effect them in their own relationsips! I pray for them daily and have even before this happend. Instead of talking trash about any good or bad decisions Paulette made while she was alive... how about considering the love she had for her kids and reaching out to others in some way to help prevent another tragedy like this from happening? Maybe a support group in her honor for others who are going through a divorce with reports of domestic violence so that more people would recognize and accept help so they could stay safe and protect their family? Many of us have been in a situation and tried every way to get out of it, except asking for help! This tragedy could be easily transformed into a way to prevent or in some way benefit someone else.... and possibly something good could come of this. Please consider this before replying... just take a deep breath and pray for those kids who are devastated from not hearing their mommys voice at night. God, bless them... and protect them!

I've noticed that a few people have judged me as "nuts", "clueless:, and "disagree" with the question that I've asked. The reason I ask my question is because I'm a friend of the family and am worried because "Gene" is making his way down to Florida to meet with Paulette's side of the family. I'm truly fearful that this is not the end of this tragedy. Please, I'm begging anyone that has any information about this hairstylist boyfriend to please post some more information. Thank You.

why not contact the law if you are truly concerned. A public gossip forum is probably not the best place to discuss something so serious.
