He is also a child of God. What a pity that he was viewed as a joke in the community. Perhaps the crime could have been prevented if anyone had cared enough to see his need and help him. When we call someone a "JOKE" we also dismiss a part of our own humanity. I know of nothing sadder than to see a young person throw away their life.

I never came across this guy when I was in school at Tech, but then again, I didn't like hanging out at Bollo's or Gillie's.

Unfortunately people like Mr. Morva often refuse help when it is offered because they believe the government is trying to "get" them that way, too. I have a friend who was like that until her parents were responsible enough to lock her up and force her to seek treatment before she hurt someone. Now she's a happy, productive adult who knows to take her medicine every day so she doesn't go back to the way she was.

It is impossible to defend the "humanity" of a child of God who has taken the lives of two people whose sole purpose of employment was to keep Mr. Morva safe and apart from others who had not already broken the law. I only have sympathy for the families of the people he murdered, not for someone who has violated the most sacred of The Ten Commandments.

I got to know Will thur my daughter, a vt student. A bum is not made from one who does not work, Will made his own way, sleep in the woods when he did not have anything. Made due with what he had, when offer somewhere to sleep he took it. When my dauther would see him walking in the dead of winter and offer him a ride he would respond are you sure, and was very greatful. Will did not have a father and his mother was very ill much of his life. Who are we to judge when we do not known what shaped his life. I very sadden by the events that took place. I do not know what happened to Will incarsared for a year, but it changed him he is not the man I meet and enjoyed talking to. God help him

I personelly knew the deputy that this lowlife killed. i called him "a friend". seems that some people want to blame everybody but the one who is guilty. the punk had time to make several choices.1) commit a crime to be put in jail.2) plan an escape and get a weapon.3)point that weapon at a Hosptial security Officer. 4) shoot him. 5) flee from there. 6) point the weapon at a Deputy Sheriff. 7) shoot him. I feel the quicker that SOB rides that lightning bolt to hell, the better. I'll even kick in some money o help pay the electric bill..........To Deputy Sheriff Eric Supthin, see ya on the other side my friend. say hello to my father.

A "joke" is a very nice thing to call him. He is a cold blooded killer. TWICE! He is scum on the bottom if scums shoes. I'll will rejoice when he is off the face of this earth. If he has asked and is forgiven by God, so be it, but an eye for an eye on this earth. FRY THE LOW LIFE PIECE OF CRAP! I don't care if his daddy didn't take him out in the yard to play or his mommy didn't hug him enough. He had choices, he chose to be what he is. Hurry up and flip the switch.
