Kory Turner murdered someone dear to my family. Some light about his history has been much appreciated. However, in no way is that sob justified in what he did to us. From what I'm seeing written, he was an abusive alcoholic who couldn't shut his mouth. I feel for his children. They will suffer so much just like my family has. None of you have walked in our shoes so quit making your judgements. Until you have experienced losing a family member, don't try to justify that murderers actions.
Again, all you are reading is people's opinions. You are taking heresay & treating it like fact & that is just not rational. You can't truly judge a person based on another strangers words.

Again, you cannot call anyone a murderer until all of the facts have come out & the truth be told. Noone is making any judgements about walking in your shoes, or at least I wasn't. I am sorry for your pain.

Everyone, I understand that this is a public forum & it is designed for exactly what everyone on here has been doing....post comments & feelings. All I wish that was different is that all of the people who are commenting as knowing what happened or who was there when this happened, or the accusations that this was a party or that Kory just lost it for no reason.....please, you are only stating rumors & not the actual facts. Yes, there were children who saw some things, not what everyone thinks they saw, there were other adults who were present too & know a GREAT deal of what happened too but cannot say anything because this is a very serious & delicate situation that only the proper people need to be discussing at this point. I can guarantee you that ALL of the facts, a lot that will shock a lot of you, will in fact come out when the time is right. Let this situation take the legal course that it has to without condemning any of the parties involved until the facts of the situation come out. I too feel very badly for both families. Don't know Lenny but my heart goes out to his family. Wrong or right, losing a loved one is very difficult. My heart goes out to Kory's family. Just being involved in something like this has changed his family forever too. Again, heresay from a friend of a friend or someone who says "I was there"...please, they are just rumors & if that person was there, they will get their chance to speak their peace on the stand in court, under oath. Let's all keep prayers in our hearts for both families right now. Send messages to support both sides because all of them are going to need it to get through this tragic event.
I think people just want to know what happened because this crime is so shocking. I work for a law firm and can tell you that anybody has access to this public information about criminal cases. I personally have not taken the time to look it up but probably will at some point. I don't think people should be faulted for trying to get answers. Rumors develop because people are deprived of the truth.

If you have access, then look it up. You keep fueling speculation for no reason when you comment on rumors & accusations. I agree that people want to know the truth but there is a right time & place for it & this forum is not it. It will be told when the proper process has taken place. If you truly work for a law firm, you should know this.

I can't believe what you just said. MURDER is MURDER. Regardless of anyones assumptions. Kory murdered someone. Don't make excuses for the sob!

Why would you want to hide the truth? I do intend to look this up but the crime was committed in Tarrant County (where the records are) and I am currently in Dallas County. It is unlikely they would be available online this soon after the crime was committed. Everybody has access to public records but it does take some work to get this information and at this point in the case it would be pointless as they are still collecting information. I am not fuelling anything just trying to find out the facts out of concern and curiousity. Kory was somebody who I always wondered about and hoped that life had treated him well. I am saddened to see that it did not. I just don't understand why everybody is trying to cover this up. It could be years before he is brought to trial if that ever happens. 90% of all cases end in plea agreements and this one probably will too. I truly work for a law firm and if you have any further legal questions feel free to direct them to me.

Well, even if you were there as you say, you may not have all the facts. Just b/c you were supposedly at the house, doesn't necessarily mean you saw what happened.

Hey - that wasn't a derogatory comment I was making to you. Sorry if you took it that way. I am not hiding anything. Like I said before, it is not my place or anyone else's place to say anything about what happened that night. The authorities ARE still collecting information & it would be wrong for me to comment about anything. I am glad that you admitted that you are curious. That is what this whole forum is about. People are curious & when they don't have the truth, they start speculating. I can assure you there is no cover up here. It is just going through due process. You must know that it has to do that! As far as directing further legal questions to you, I would rather not. I know you mean well but it seems like you are getting bitter because you are so hungry for information before time for it to be made public.

Sir, I never stated in any of my posts that I saw anything or that I had all of the facts. Are you going to start attacking me too? All I asked was for the pointless accusations & rumors to stop until due process is served.

My apologies. I am not bitter but tired. I took that personally and should not have. I was up half of the night because this was really bothering me and got up at 330 am and have worked all day. This has hit me from both ends. I know parties that were involved on both sides. I would just like to know what happened and I believe I do. That being said...have a good weekend. I need to get on with my life.

I hope that we all can get on with our lives. I will do my best to have a good weekend. A lot of people have been affected by a very unfortunate situation. Thanks for the apology.

You damn sure did! You said the kids did witness some things but not the murder. I think you're better off just backing off b/c you don't have anything other than assumptions.

Tell me this....by reading some of the blogs it seems to me the friends and family of Lenny are able to speak on what they may or may not know.Is this because they do not have to put a defense together????? the police have done it.On the other side they must remain silent so they may come up with a defense?Again, I'm clueless and take NO sides here.

You're crazy. My exact words were that "there were children who saw some things not what everyone thinks they saw". Don't put words in my mouth. I make no assumptions. Only what I know to be fact. I am the only one on here who can say that. Now, with that said Sir, I will not be baited into your delusional arguments because I cannot comment on anything in detail even if I wanted to. I haven't made one assumption about anything.

It's pretty obvious who speaks false accusations & statements out of anger & who speaks simple facts out of truth.

Did anyone that was there try and STOP this from happening?Maybe that could have prevented so much pain for both families.

Actually I think you're the one who is crazy. If you state that the kids saw some things, not the actual murder - how does that mean that there is no assumption on your part. I honestly don't think you even know what you witnessed. If you did indeed.

this is in response to "clueless"

you assume that that was even possible. Again, someone else on the outside who is speculating.
