Alexus was like a little sister to me. It was the worst thing that I could actully hear was that she has been stabbed by someone her same age. To be serious I agree with her family that if the police would have responded in a quicker manner that my dear friend Alexus would still be alive and breathing today, but we can not dwell on the past and just try and think about all the good times that we have had with Alexus. All the good die young but are never forgotten.

It's terrible to see a child as young as 12 committing murder at this age!!! It's sad to also see a child ,Alexus Purrty, at a young age stabbed to death!! It's a very sad situation!! I hope Alexus's family and friends get through it and know that the 12 year old who did it is serving his time so it's equal!!! I will never forget when i heard this on the news!! sad,sad!!!

I pray that God will comfort this family in this time. A crime such as this is absolutely sadning and heartbreaking. It is much to often (especially in the black community) that teens and preteens are left to their own devices because the parents simply don't have time for them because they are selfishly wrapped up in themselves and their own life. I equally pray that a strong message is sent to the young boy who robbed this life. It would be nice to also see the parents charged as well because its no secret that this boy had major home issues as many of them do.

It is very sad, I am sorry for her family. No kids should have to go thru this, either on the victim side or the killing side. Kids should be enjoying their childhood, not fighting or killing. I don't want to start an argument since I didn't know either one but if kids are raised in loving homes with parents who are on top of what is going on with their kids, chances are things will be ok. How does someone's child as young as 12 walk around with a knife let alone use it on someone?? How could someone that young be so heartless?? Parents need to love their children and make sure that do the absolute best job in raising them the right way.

I, too, do not know you but I'd like to send my condolences to the mother and father and the rest of the family. I hope the perp will be found and brought to justice so your lives will return to some simblance of normal. Though nothing will actually make your life normal again, I wish the best for your family. God bless you all and I wish you well. I wish I could do more but I am unable to ease your pain or I would. Your well being will be in my prayers.
