Why would anyone use this tragedy to imply that crystals mom was not a good mother.What about crystals stepson Alex.I feel sorry for the entire family....
I agree with you, talking about Crystals mom had nothing to do with what happened that night. I find it strange that the Starr family only mentioned the 2 children that Crystal and Mike had together, nothing about Alex. You would think that being with them for 8 years her family should have acknowleged him. I also feel sorry for the entire family and only wish that someone could have intervened so this tradegy didn't happen. God only knows what they were going through for something like this to happen.

I am amazed at the comments from people who have only "heard" what happened and know nothing about what DID happen. Crystal and Michael had been having trouble for some time. Crystal had been dating another man for a few months and was making Michael's life miserable. This was seen first-hand only 3 days before the horrible incident. They lived next door to Crystal's mother (and I use the term loosely) and step-father. The oldest boy (Michael's son) had been sent to live with relatives in August due to Crystal's abuse. Michael and Crystal could not even have a night out alone because the grandparents could not be bothered to watch the children for a couple of hours. The night of the horror, MICHAEL sent the children next door to spare them the horror. I believe Michael was driven to this by Crystal but it is still not acceptable. The grandparents have now decided to keep the kids and will allow no contact from any family members or even their own older brother. They also went into the house immediately and removed all papers, computer, big screen TV's and whatever else they wanted. Hopefully probate will take care of their thievery. Of course the $2400 per month they get from SS allowed the grandmother to retire early supposedly to care for the children, but the middle boy is in school all day and the baby is still in day care. She was no kind of mother to Crystal (according to Crystal) and I am sure she will ruin her grandchildren's lives too.
