First I want to say God bless this family, especially those two children. I am outraged at the parents who have bailed him out of jail repeatedly, facilitating his criminal behavior, after knowing what he was capable of. They should feel responsible! I am a mother, I love my children, BUT there comes a time when you must say enough is enough. I hope they think of this young mother who died, and the children she left behind for whom life will never be the same, EVERY DAY for the rest of their lives. Had they not bailed out this MONSTER of a son, she and her loved ones would not be suffering the terrible tragedy. The court system that allowed this animal his freedom with his criminal background takes away my trust in the legal system. I will be curious to find out how much responsibility it will accept in all of this. Antonio Forrest took the life of Rikki White, irrepacably damaged the lives of her children, grandmother and all of the friends and family who loved her. He should pay with his own life, and that will still not be payment enough......

I knew Rikki White when she was a baby in Ohio. I am friends with her parents and grandparents. The person who committed this horrible crime should have been rotting in prison instead of on the street. This is just one more indication of how broken our justice system has become. Thoughts and prayers to Rikk and Berdina and well wishes to Francis.

i want to say how truely sorry i am to the family of rikki, i did not know her personally but have met her a few times in passing, i also want to say that i am truely sorry to his mother, father and brother that will have to live with this for the rest of there lives! antonio was always sweet in passing but had a stranger unnerving presence about himself! i knew he was beating her from seeing the bruises in passing but it is truely distrubbing that it went so far! laws for domestic violence need to be truely strenghtened and maybe her death can be used to do so! these people need to be monitored to make sure that they are no where near the victim! she died a horrible death and we need to not let her die invein! my prayers go out to this family, and for antonio i am sorry but i hope it haunts you for the rest of your life and are punnished by god the way you should be!

i knew the family when i lived in jackson and this indeed is sad but to the racist james in tn how dare you call blacks animals, god created us all to be equal, how the hell do you think you have the right to latch out at blacks in the way you did blacks arent the only ones that commit domestic voilence or crimes in a whole i bet there are more cases of whites and domestic voilence i also bet that you have more whites as serial killers why when you look at crime you look at blacks for the market of it. i knew rikkis dad and mom and dont think their view on blacks is like yours i want to pray for you for you are a hitler and you are a pharoh from the bible days i look to go to heaven one day and i thank god there wont be racist people like you there because your suppose to love your brother and whether you think blacks our your brothers or not god created all man to be created equal so instead of reaching out at one for his skin color and blaming all the worlds troubles on ones race why dont you start getting right with god reach out to this family with prayer not hatred towards ones race a white man could have been the one to have done this brutal crime too then what race would you blame

WHAT A HORRIBLE TRAGEDY. I KNOW THIS FAMILY. GREW UP WITH RIKKI'S AUNT IN JACKSON OHIO. I REMEMBER WHEN THIS YOUNG WOMAN WAS BORN. MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS TO THE ENTIRE WEBB AND WHITE FAMILY FOR THEIR LOSS. I PRAY THAT FRANCIS HEALS FROM HER INJURIES. I THINK SOMETHING DEFINATELY NEEDS TO CHANGE WITH THE JUSTICE SYSTEM WITH THESE TYPES OF MATTERS. SOMEONE CAN MAKE THREATS AND INJURE OTHERS AND STILL WALK OUT AFTER POSTING A LITTLE MONEY. WHERE IS THE JUSTICE FOR THE VICTIMS?? STATS ALSO SHOW THAT AFTER A VICTIM TRIES TO LEAVE THEY ARE LIKE 75% MORE LIKELY TO BE MURDERED THAN IF THEY HAD STAYED. HOW SAD IS THAT?? MAY GOD BLESS THIS FAMILY!!!

You know what? White people are just as violent. It's not a race issue, and yes blacks are equal. You need to leave the 1960's...ass!

i grew up with rikki. i was stunned when i heard what had happened. she was always so small, but so tough. my heart goes out to her family in their time of loss. i wish her grandmother a quick recovery and her children to know their mother will always be with them. to let a man that committed such a horrible crime go free, is a slap in the face of the family. what will happen when he does this or some other violent crime again while he's out on bond? i hope rikki's face haunts him every day of his miserable life!

I am in complete shock over the words of some. How dare you speak harshly of my family, who has already dealt with enough. "smarter than you all" you definatly are smart not to leave your name. I'm not sure who you think you are, but you have no right to speak about someone who has passed away, and my grandmother who has been through enough. Who cares if my cousin was not perfect? WHO IS? That should have never even been brought up. There are mothers, and there are those who give birth? Who are you to pass judgement on anyone? Maybe you should elaborate. What do you mean about the whole truth will soon come out? Are you trying to justify her murder? I suggest everyone thinks twice before posting anymore hurtful things about my family. What if Rikki's kids were to see this? The poor children have already been through enough. I'm saying enough is enough, and it will not be said again.

Rikki did much better than would be expected with the hand that she was dealt. She had been through a lot in her life yet she was the most self-less person that I know. She always put everyone first. Before her. Which got her in this situation. He had no right to kill her. No right to beat her. I still miss her and I pray that she is in no pain anymore. Not being beaten by a worthless guy ever again. He wasn't the first guy to beat her. May God have mercy on all of the guys who did her wrong. All she wanted was to be loved. He is an animal. Anyone who would kill anyone is an animal. Regardless of their skin color. If it wouldn't have been Rikki it would have been someone else. That guy was just bound to kill someone. Some people are born with the capabilities to kill. Thank God If you aren't one of those people.
