The girl murdered was a good friend who went to school with me from kindergarten to graduation. She has a beautiful daughter and it saddens my heart and soul to know some evil soul tore her from this world and her daughter for selfishness.

first off you dont know what you are talking about.the girl you are calling a whore happens to be my daughter and she was a good girl and she loved her daughter dearly.of course you wouldnt know any thing about that if you dont know the person you are talking about how can you say she is a whore .did you see her in the bed with him?evidently you must have been there or wanted to be there.my daughterjust took the medicine that the dr,perscribed for her.my daughter was a CNA if you know what that means.She did't draw welfare or SSI.Mack called brandi to come up there and wash his hair because someone hit him and to clean his house.if you cant respect the families then you dont need to be making those comments.My daughter Kim said Brandiis not a whore and if you think she is then you need to come to our face instead of writing those things .Mack blankenship didnt ruin peoples lives they chose to ruin their own.

For those of you who are saying that Brandi was a whore...grow some balls and put your REAL NAME with your comment. Brandi was my cousin, and her reason for being at Mack's house is HER business. Whether or not she was promiscuous has no bearing on the fact that they were both MURDERED in cold blood. For God's sake people, have a heart and do try to keep in mind that these people have families just like YOU do, and those family members just might read this. Example being Annette, my Grandmother's niece and Brandi's mother. How would it make you feel to not only lose a child and have the culprit still out there somewhere, only to find out that some ignorant piece of shit is demeaning her on the internet? i don't know what the laws are regarding defamation of character when that person is deceased...but my opinion is that it's probably in your best interest to keep your identity a secret. By the way, my name is Serena Lynne Charles (formerly Hensley) and I live at 13478 632 Rd, Phelps, KY 41553 if anyone would like to call Brandi a whore to my face :)

I am dam* proud to be Brandi's sister! She was a wonderful mother, daughter, and sister! I have a few things i want to say to those people who think they know so frigin' much about this! First of all dream Angel, My sister was surely NOT A WHORE! she was a nurse and she took care of people the way a nurse does! Why are you going by dream angel on here? use your real name or are you so terrified? My thoughts are, you probably do just set around and dream up sh*t, and it seems that you are surely not an angel!! To everyone else thats left bad comments..like Ima Doolittle, I think thats a good name for you because I'd say you do-little of nothing but set on your a$$ and want to talk about people you dont even know!!(Like you talking about my Sis & Mack!!) Get a life and dont worry about everyone here..worry about your own dam* self!! I have a lot of anger inside of me and I'm tired of this crap that people thinks they need to write on here about my sis and Mack!! To Mr. X, I see where you have talked bad about this community so why are you looking for a place to buy around here if its so bad!! Seems kinda stupid if you ask me..But I guess you just wanted to get on here and talk about people you didnt even know too!!! so dam* dumb!!! I also want to say something to Melissa Adkins, I cant remember you but I really THANK YOU for defending my Sis and Mack!! I want everyone to know that no-matter if someone is a dealer or not they DO NOT deserve to die!! My family and Mack's family are still going through a very hard time with their deaths so stop, stop, stop, this stupid sh*t,, we've heard enough.. We are still greiving and going through enough without having to listen to rude a$$ people like most of you all!!!

Ok, first off I am a friend of Brandi's and of the family and you in the above comments need to shu the he** up, seems to me that you have no clue who or what you are talking about, no need to mention names you know who you are!! We know what wonderful people they were and we don't need your 2 cents about it! I would like to know how people like you sleep at night and walking around holding your heads up high? Brandi was a great mother, and a wonderful person, she was my friend! And Not A Whore!! Mack was a great man also, and if somehow we do indure faults its not your jugement call, it's Gods!! To Mister X, Ima Doolittle and Dream Angel it saddens me to see that we have some ignorant, cold hearted people in this world such as you! You have no clue what theses familes are going through so you need to shut the h**l cause someday it may just hit home right on your door step and then you can eat your words! You wanna talk about a hillbilly well I got ya dam* hillbilly and Im not hard to find Im from Stopover Ky too and my name is Traci Lynn
Ferrell, think you wanna talk, just come see me! BUT, for God sakes let Brandi and Mack rest in peace, for they are not here to defend theirselves..

I didn't know Mack but I did know Brandi and for people to get on here and talk about two people who had there lives taken from them without a choice..It makes me sick..Brandi was a mother a wonderful mother and what you people are doing is down right WRONG!! This beautiful daughter of Brandis is going to have to live with this for the rest of her life and for people to say all these fucked up things about her mother is down right evil of them..God can only judge those who come before him not you or anyone else has the right to sit and say anything about these two people. There families are in pain!! what kind of people are you!! god will someday judge you and I hope for your sake you get on your knees tonight and beg for forgiveness..because his judgement is final. God bless Brandi and Macks families to have the strength to look over those who are judgemental and heartless without knowing how wonderful they really were. AMEN!

I agree w/Kelli totally. Its not anyones place on here to judge them at all. Brandi was a good person ( i used to work w/her at the nursing home), sure she had made some mistakes, but haven't we all? If u answer that question truthfully, ur answer will fall deep in ur heart. Do lots of soul searching and realize that u urself aren't perfect and its not ur responsibilty to judge! Let this family grieve and let these two people rest in peace, no matter what they have done..and Kim she loved u to death, she often would talk about u at work..and ur daughters. She put nothing above her daughter and would'nt appreciate the things that are being said about her here...

Brandi83, your sure right about her not appreciating what these people r saying!!! i do know she sure did love her daughter, me and my girls dearly!!! She would always act like she was my older sis instead of me being her's..lol...i miss her so much i cant stand it..i need her back and i know she's not coming back..it kills me to think that but i know it's true..This is such a big reason why i am so, so defensive over people i know and love..It did make me happy when you said she loved me to death and talked about me and my girls often..we were always there for each other and she was a very wonderful mother, sister daughter, and friend..

Yea, I know how u must feel about losing her and then for someone to get on here and talk about her, even if it were true is just not right. This was a horrible thing that happened and no one deserved that. NO ONE! I'm happy that I made u cheer up a lil' gurl u just have to keep reminding urself that ppl are gonna be rude, and ppl are gonne say nasty things, but it doesn't effect the way u feel or the way u think about her. Nothing could ever change that, dont let ppl on here get to u. That's Y I'm gonna try to stay clear of this site..makes me mad, makes me sad, then again some things on here make me smile. I just like seeing what ppl are saying lol..

Kim, I want u to know that ppl on here can be so rude! Brandi was a sweet person, I worked with her awhile at the nursing home before i moved back to VA.. but anyway she always had a smile on her face and talked about her babie, ur babies and u and ur mom.. Don't let this get u down, U and I both know the real Brandi and she wasn't as these ppl are making her out to be. Everyone gets into some hard spots, everyone does things they are not proud of.. y not let her rest in peace.. Is it any of our places to judge her? NOPE!!

The way I see it, their business what they done not ours and its not up to us to judge them, but they did'nt deserve what happened to them and I hope they find out who it was, so maybe the family can have some closure.

Stander and others: you are truly pathetic.

I cannot believe this site. People posting others' actual names, you're talking about someone's loved one. Regardless of what Mack and the girl did with their lifestyles, have you no respect for their survivors? I know nothing about the girl but I know Mack has a son and grandchildren who were absolutely devastated by that loss. I don't agree with drug dealers' lifestyles and hate the idea of my son being tempted by that but hopefully I'll be a good enough mother to raise him to make better decisions about with whom to associate and how to live his life. I don't think it's my place or anyone else's to post on the internet what someone did with their life as a permanent reminder to those who loved them regardless of their lifestyle of what they lost. That is sub human and you all should be ashamed for even mentioning this.

So glad to be away from that area and the ridiculousness of people who don't mind their own business. Let these two people rest. If you worry more about what goes on in your own household rather than other people's business you won't have to worry about your child/grandchild being tempted by drugs. TRUTH!

drug dealers couldn't sell drugs, if stupid people wouldn't buy them. drug users go to the dealers house to buy drugs. no one is making them buy the drugs. if there was no drug user there would be no drug dealers. it's the same old story, it's the drug dealers fault that people do drugs. does anyone on here...know of anyone who is being forced to buy drugs? so in my opinion buying drugs is where the problem is. obama's new drug cop is going after the users. so the government must agree with me!!! users,dealers all the same people. so what you people should do is tell the police who killed these people. i moved from stopover in early 80's and know for sure no one does anything without the whole community knowing about it...so call and tell the K.S.P. what you know. you will feel better and sleep better at night. knowing about something and not telling it, makes you guilty in the eyes of the law. complicity????
