hte trial of teague shows that justice is stupid in this country ... while teague had a part in this horrid crime the masterminds of the trail of crime got away almost scott free... gunter had lead a groupe of young impressionable youths into more trouble in tennessee and this citizen has very little doubt that he masterminded the burgulary that lead to the elderly womans murder and yet gunter got only 5 years for his part... in correspondance with the youths involved they were lead to believe by gunter that he was in it with them and if they kept his part quiet they all would get a lessor charge ... and they fell for this as well.. gunter and his "wife" are directly responcible for what lead up to this murder and while i fully agree with the sentance of life without parole for the youths . i feel the people who set up the illegal activities that led to the murder should has equal blame in that murder
For the facts read this news report.

Matthew Mckamey should be able to be released & given a second chance at life. He was just a child. He's a grown man now and has changed greatly.

I knew Matthew McKamey and I can't honestly say I was suprised by this. He has always been violent.He was a violent individual when he was a freshman in high school. I believe that he and Teague are the most reponsible. There was no one standing over them making them stab an ederly lady 23 times. I think they both should face the maximum sentence allowed. There is no excuse for them to have murdered the lady.
I also knew Matthew McKamey from high school and I agree that his actions did not come as a surprise.

I dated Matt off and on for a few years. During the time I knew him he was harmless. He wouldn't even hurt a fly! I could trust him with my life. I think he should be given random psychological evaluations for a year, and if it shows him to be sane and rehabilitated then he should be given a second chance at life. The murder of this poor woman (whom my great aunt knew) came as a huge surprise to myself and my friends (a few who dated him as well) because we all knew Matt as a gentle loving person not a monster! There are a few people that know what really happened... Those involved and the good Lord above! Judge not less ye be judged...

I have know Matthew Craig mckamey for a very long time its sad to think he could have ever did a thing like this to someone but do we really know all the facts to point the finger at some one only person who knows who did what in this is the old women who lost her life no one else will tell the truth because they don't want to get charged with the murder of the old woman . my point is I have know Matthew Craig mckamey since he was 7 years old and he wasn't the type to kill someone one and I still think that he didn't do this without be threatened by someone the other people could have told him if he didn't do it they would kill him or his family did you ever think that no you all just point and blam get all the facts before you blam we are not God people we are human OK .

I am very sorry for your loss .I know these boys and its hard to believe that something like this happened. I think there was more involved than the police wantesd to take care of . They had 2 young boys telling the exact same story that even the police thought was very strange . The story was given to them to tell police or their lives as well would be threatened. The one that committed the crime is now free . I dont want to belittle the horrible crime that was committed but the police should have never let the real killer free. <quoted text>
If any of you some Biches even knew what you were talking about you would be dangerous
