What a shame! I went to high school with this fellow. He was one of the quarterbacks on the football team. We shared a boys cooking class his senior year [1971]. I remember Bo as a very charismatic fellow who had great personality. He enjoyed many friends and was a lot of fun. He also dated a gal whom I had a mean crush on, but I never held that against him. He seemed like a good guy. It is sad how some folks make bad decisions which often can destroy their lives. May God bless Bo Lively.

i grew up with bo lively and he is one of the last people i would have imagined to be involved in something like this. he was very popular, athletic, and had so much potential in life. i would have thought he would be very successful with a major company or self employed. bo is from a very good family and there must be more to this story; had to be drugs and/or alcohol involved here. the bo lively i knew would not have ever committed a crime like this. this is such a waste and a tragedy. my heart goes out to his family and friends. god be with you, my friend, bo.

I attended Elementary to Sr High School and Sunday School with Bo-His family was truly one of the nicest-Most of the girls had a crush on him, probably all through school-I agree with Ron that this doesn't sound like the guy we grew up with -I will be praying for Bo and his family-God can redeem any situation
