I really don't know what to think. I've known Dale for years and i can't believe he would do something like this. Me and him dated for 4 yrs off and on. We were going to hang out the next day after it happened. We were broke up at the time but we still talked. I didn't know that other girl was with him or i wouldve went up there and came and got him before it happened and he wouldn't even be there. I have always wanted to ask him why he done it for. what was the reason of killing two inocent men. I will always love Dale even though he has totally done something wrong and messed up his life. He was always good to me and there for me when i needed him. I think he should stand trial. So we can see why he done what he done and hurt so many people

Mr moneypenny hurt me as well.

Eddie Poynter was my friend. I had been his sponsor in AA for a few years. He had come to visit me in San Francisco a few times. Just because you drink and do drugs doesn't mean you are not culpable for your actions. Eddie DID drink; Eddie DID do drugs -- but, he got sober -- over and over again. There is NO EXCUSE for cold blooded, pre-meditated "burn the freakin house down and then go kill the only other person who could identify you" murder.
Period.

Why is it that the State and Attorneys have no problem convicting drunk drivers that kill people ? What dale moneypenny did is much worse that getting behind the wheel of a car and killing a couple of people. He talked his way into Eddies house with his girlfriend, and then waited until Eddie went to bed before he STABBED HIM SEVERAL TIMES -- and then, SET THE HOUSE ON FIRE.

Maybe the state should allow mr moneypenny to just "take a lot of drugs" before he is executed. THAT WOULD BE A FAIR SENTENCE

Dale Moneypenny took someone who was very dear to our family away from us--IN COLD BLOOD! Then he proceeded to rob him, after he left a knife in his back. My uncles apartment was trashed. My uncle was a very gentle man, who never hurt anyone. How can you say your brother didn't hurt anyone?

We can certainly judge you for not knowing how to use proper punctuation. Your brother has got nothing coming.

Well this is what i think about the situation. dale is a piece of shit who should rott in prison for hundreds of yearrs or hey should give him the needle, the family of the victom should not have to go through something like this no one sgould, I have know dail for like 3 years and he has always been a dope head and he got what a peice of shit like him should have got. So all I can so is u will get what u deserve in prison.And a piece of shit like you deserves to die so have fun with that needle in your arm you piece of shit and your whole family is pieces of shit for saying you didnt do it well got to go lata.

Okay who ever posted tht is rude.Dale is my cousin and i have never met him but my parents told me he use to always come over.And for saying his whole family is a piece of shit? how can u say something about people u dont know.dude get a clue.My family never talks about this.So i think you should shut the hell up before you talk about something u dont know shit about his family.

I knew Dale when we were very young. He was my first boyfriend. He was so sweet and kind. He had the best personality, always knew just what to say. We went to church together and I tutored him in school. I've thought about him so many times throughout the years and have always tried to look him up. I could not believe what I found, when I found Dale. In Prison! From what I can see, there are many families that have suffered a lost from whatever happened that horrific night, including Dale's. I don't think that it's fair for anyone involved to attack anyone elses family. Everyone is going through enough!! Anyway, I will always remember the sweet taliking, humorus boy,the one who snuck my first kiss, the one who always knew exactly what to say to make the people around him feel special. He was special. He is special. And I hope that somehow, he knows it. What happened that night is horrible, but whats done is done, everyone is hurting and it will probably never go away, but maybe we shouldn't add to that hurt. To all of the families, Dale's, and the victims, I'm sorry for all of the hurt you've suffered.

Your 100% correct about Dale Moneypenney.He is a major drug addict meth head and the little skank girlfriend is no better.Dale was a street hustler and sucked peter for his dope money!He used to frequent the gay bar Teddy Bears often,always trying to hustle a john.Dales probably sucking peters in prison for dope right now.Eddie and BJ felt sorry for the little piece of trash and his skank and that's what got them killed.They killed BJ because he could identify them.I hope somebody cuts Dales throat while he's in prison and I hope every white trash idiot that takes up for Dale dies a terrible death!!!!

Eddie was my dear cousin and seven years later, the loss is still there, and I am looking up information about him, to see his face. I loved him dearly and no drugs or alcohol was worth my friend's life.

I knew Dale back then we worked together at a few fast food restaurants together and would hang out . I was at his house the week before his mom got shot. at that time Dale was A normal kid that did not do drugs or get into trouble So sad everything that happened I lost track of him after his mom died and he left Louisiana .

You guys really wanna know truth about dale, I'll be glad to tell you. I knew him all my life. But stop talking lies and untruths. You want the real. Ask the ones that knew him. Not the ones that say they did, Cuz they met him a couple times. I will tell you straight up. I don't know what happened that day. But I will say this. His mother was the start woman you'd know before she was murdered too. Who knows why dale did what he did. But I'll say this. He should've showed his mom more respect with the life she gave him. He wasted it. And now five lives were wasted. And none of it should've ever happened.
