What a tragic loss. We will miss her humor, her love of life, her kindness, her friendship. You always made us smile.

What a horrible tragedy. How can someone possibly shoot somebody in the back of the head and then coldly put their body in the trunk of a car and desert it. And then, go clean, patch the wall and paint. I can't even imagine how somebody could live with themselves after doing such a heinous thing. He took away one of the best friends anyone could possibly have. I hope he rots in that jail cell.

You stand by him because he was one of the many many guys you sleep with for drugs(Ii knows its you Sonja) To all this woman has two twin 4 year olds, and has sex with murders when her kids are sleeping. Is he theh father of Devin you filth? I hope you kids get taken away from you again. 10 rehab stinks, 10+ abortions, and bragging to people that you are going to give him congical visits, just shows what a sick ugly person you are. To all reading this might sound harsh, but I have tryed to help this trash for two years to stay staight(something she cannot do but hides very well) for the sake of her children, give them up like you did you son when you were 17(he was prabbaly taken from you anyway), let them have a chance at a norman life.

Brian was a good guy with a kind heart. He was there for my family and I after hard times with rare sickness/surgeries.
I can't see him doing that on purpose.

Did the pre-trial hearing take place on the 13th? And if so what was the outcome?

who in this other woman that is "trash" on drugs? Brian has a girlfriend and it has torn up her, her family, and his family. Of course he didn't let anyone know this dark side of himself or they wouldn't have loved him. My prayers are with Monica, her family, his mom, his girl and her family. He had no regard for all the lives he ruined when he took a life. sick man!

Brian was in the hospital because he was faking a mental illness/sickness and was put there for a few days as a precaution to save our department from losing a ton of money in case he had a medical issue while in our jail. Once the Doctors at Silver Cross cleared him he was brought back to jail where he awaits now. He spent several months in the medical wing until he was cleared for population. He is now currently working in jail as a pod worker making $5 a week he can use on food items/cosmetics. He is still currently awaiting trial.

I still cannot believe that she is gone, how senseless this all is. Brian is a sociopath with no regard to human life except his own.
