most of you all never knew gary and im pretty sure that most of you probably take drugs yourself. and for those who didn't leave names or made up fake ones you all are the cowards. and for anyone who knows an addict can say it makes you a totally different person. before the drugs gary was the most kind hearted person and the best brother. and for those who knew gary and is sticking up for him thank you

I am Gary and Chis's older sister!! I know they have done stuff that is not right but how many people in this world have done messed up stuff? Why arent you judging them? And as a matter a fact I am sure if you take time to look in the mirrow you arent perfect either!! Dont judge them!! It says in the bible that God is the only one who has the right to judge people so leave them alone!! No olne is better than anyone else!! I will always love my brothers no matter what they do!! You are just want to talk crap about people!! Find someone else to talk about!! DO you want to be judged for everything you have done!! Gary had a problem and like someone said Mr. Hurst was helping his addiction!! So he was in the wrong also!! Poeple with addictions need help and if there is no one there to help what do you expect!! So go find someone else to talk about!! He is paying for what he did even if its not what you think it should be!! God will be the one to judge him so screw you all!! Kayla you dont know me but my mom was married to your dad!! And we love them no matter what and I am very proud of you for standing up for your brother!! Love you Gary and Chis

Yes that's her name... Misty Pearson is her married name and what she was arrested under. She comes up for parole 1-23-13.

For the record, all you people judging do NOT know the whole story. As a recovering addict, I know what it's like to commit crimes to get a fix. I don't agree with what happened but when someone sells pills or has a family member that knows he has pills more than likely an addict in active addiction will do something for them. The Hurst family need to realize a family member set this robbery up and it went bad. Gary is not the only person to blame. The family member of the Hurst family knew, Gary, and Misty. Only two people got caught and charged. People's past should not be held against them. So what they were bad kids? Most of us were. No matter how good our families are we all make our own choices. Better hope your kids turn out perfect or someone will be on here talking shit to you one day!!

kenny hurst sr. had never once been perscribed or messed with drugs in anyway. he was an honest hard working man who would do anything to help anyone and he was shot down in his own home for the money in his wallet. he had never met gary collins and had no clue who he was. get ur facts right before you open your mouth. i know many drug addicts who deal with same thing and they dont go around killing unarmed men for there money.
