first of all do you know the facts of the case do you know they found male DNA inside of this little girl do you know she was found
out to be raped that night she was murdered supposedly by Mary. I think not. there is a lot this guy's alibi 's that are coming out not to be true. the one person who gave this man an alibi changed her statement and told the police she took up for him and she lied the first time. so with all this said I believe she's innocent.

I believe she is innocent. To. I saw her everyday with the kids at Mcdonalds. She would carry the boy around so he would behave. Never saw her hit or be mean to them.that beautiful little girl was so sweet. Why she hasn't told the truth is beyond me, but I think she's innocent. I may be wrong though.

she did tell the truth the first thing she told the police was he did it and everything that happened but the cops of west Frankfort, the same cops who certain people have pictures of them smoking dope with drug dealers who go and get drunk and hit on under age girls. so they kept drilling her for 10 more hours and slammed their gun on the table in front of her and intimidated her telling her it wasn't the truth. well fyi this certain guy was drunk about a month ago and admitted on a phone camera he c was there when Alexis died hum sorry Franklin county Mary is innocent this man admitted he did it on video.

Whether she did it or not she is just as guilty for allowing someone to harm her child! They would have to kill ME first, plus she lied and either put her baby in a crawl space or allowed it! GUILTY!!

This is soo very sad ....I do agree she knew what had happen!.. Therefore she's involved this is something Mary is going to have to live with for the rest of her life....I know Mary very sweet girl ...I believe that she didn't kill that baby I never could believe that... What I can say is that piece of sh!t should be beat to death! No, a slow painful death that would be the best route! I'm glad I don't know this murderers name!..

Mike you should know you a po. Mary told them he did it in the first place and did for several hours unti you guys kept telling her she did it and showed her pictures of Alexis dead and kept telling her she could see her kids if she told you she did it. What mom wouldn't do the same tell the police what they want to hear to see her kids. So maybe you should look at this guy's past and see he has been involved in a young girls death before

Sweet girl huh yall really don't know her and the family trash she comes from it is no surprise to me bouncing from house to house to bed to bed. fyi she never had her boy gma and papa do always have he was to much for her and no mother woyld say they kulled or help hide the fact of a missing child just to see her others i personally hace her nothing of rape that is FACTUAL. just hear say she was drowned buft with what you say.... there was one itwm that was used... her own friend tabitha thinks she guilty which i sont know why dcfs doesn't step in and take that girls kids either she will be the next one to off a kid living in her car and a. hotel when she has the money and these two were like pb and j this town is to corrupt. so unfortunately there will never be justification for what was done she has a so many who miss her my kid went to school with Alexis. he was very saddened. just yesterday he lit. A candle in her honor for Christ

So you think she did this all on her own?..Like I said I'm pretty sure she was involved but I'm sorry a man had something to do with this! You know it as well as I do! Hey I came from a broken home to ! Very broken!... That doesn't mean we're are going on a killing spree!... What drugs was she on?..huh I wanna know!.. I'll tell you were her mind was because I've done my far share when I chose that h!LL of a life years ago!.. I couldn't imagine loosing a child, that little girl was the same age as mine...But something isn't right!...people who judge others upbringing I tell you what there's is alot of us that didn't grow up in a healthy loving home!

Do you know her at all??? I grew up with this nut job shr has always been off why is everyone so surprised because it happened here bad things happen everywhere and in this town all the time. why do you think she would need help in doing this??? You are all acting as if it is a grown man and she couldn't what drownd her lil girl then carry her all the way OUTSIDE. to. a crawl space You CANNOT axcess it from in the home sadly as a child I had a friend who lived there. A healthy loving home has nothing to do with the fact tjat people are sick mothers get depressed there is a movie that is based on a true story if you think she was not capable of this then you shoyld lpok into the movie "BABY BLUES " AND THIS IS JUST A DEPICTION BUT IT WOULD BE SO EASY HECK MAYBE SHE WATCHED IT.....SHE'S NOT INNOCENT ALEXIS IS GONE AND THERE IS NOTHING THAT CAN CHANGE THAT SHE AIDED IN THE DEATH OF THIS ANGEL
who knows

You are funny wow because you are talking like you were there in fact maybe you were. And as for Tabitha she lived with her for a while and Mary knew it wasn't good for her kids so she moved. So Tabitha a friend I think not. And for the grandma and grandpa having her kids all the time I think not Darla is nothing but a pos look where all her kids that she raised are either in prison or not possessed a second cation and the only reason Bobby jo is where she is. Is nd her dad raised her and she got away from her pos mom darlena. And even when dcfs was involved b4 Darlene would have Mary take coy everyday want pictures they will soon b on Facebook. And as for rape of alexus why do you think she has sat in county for so long waiting on DNA for then to test sperm that was found in Alexis after her bath that night so , people you need to not listen to gossip and see the truth sold proof that can be proven on paper.

Thank you outsider. They are making me sound like a monster saying I made her take Coy. Should a mother have to be made to spend time with HER child. I have nothing bad to say about anyone. I am sorry this is causing so much hatred for others. I am the one that goes to every court hearing. I have seen all video statements.Things just get so messed up with rumors. If there was DNA from any other source use common sense. Someone else would be in jail. There will be JUSTICE for Lexi one day !!!
