If we pray for the truth to be revealed, it will be. The Lord is able to bring out the truth if it hasn't already been.

Things do not add up that's for sure. I hope the truth comes out for all involved. If this was an accident at someone else's hands, the family needs to know that. Hopefully, at some point, someone will say something or the investigation will reveal something.

2 weeks and nothing more said or done. What a shame, a son, father, friend, family, neighbor, teammate, loved one gone. It will never be the same.

Yea the question remains not clear, free will? Yea who's free will was it? Very easy for you,? I'm sure your free will answer would be different if he was your loved one.

Seems as that is what they would like everyone to believe? But I don't buy that for one minute! Its totally BS and a fine young man lost his life and a family is left suffering a horrible loss. They will pay the price for what they all covered up, sooner or later....

There are a lot of accounts of what happened. Did they move the body from the garage to yard? What for, What time did the shooting happen and when was the police called. Did one of the boys say that he shot him on a phone message? Hope they are checking phone records.

They haven't checked anything! Unless the family starts screaming and yelling, the phone records will be lost, I heard his girlfriend was talking to him on the phone until a certain time and then nothing? Even if the boys delete the messages, they are kept in a phone bank for few weeks. Time is running out, get someone to do the right thing!! And do it now, or only the ones there will know what happened? The one that was with him knows, he won't tell the truth, he is already in trouble with the law. The rest are cowards for not speaking up for their friend, or were they really friends?? I think not! Just what I think

Was told the family hired a private investigators? Praying this is true, can't let this just be metropolis city or county make the call on this one! It was not a cut and dry situation, people don't run if they have nothing to hide!
