    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc.
    3 - Please remember to not use all CAPS or capitalize the beginning letter of every single word or every other word, or use IM/text abbreviations (except like LOL). Please have respect for other readers and type words out. Not everyone is into that and it is inappropriate here. [examples: "cuzn" "tha" "dat" and so many more] Learn proper English! You should have learned it in school.
    4 - Your comments must be all in English, using proper English, too. No huge run-on sentences (use punctuation). Pretend you learned something in English class.
    5 - I will also not allow Anonymous comments. This includes using anonymous, obviously fake email addresses (you@you.com, me@me.com, anonymous@yahoo.com, or fictional characters, etc.)
    6 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS. NOR IS THE BLOG OWNER RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE'S OPINIONS OR FEELINGS. STATEMENTS MADE AS COMMENTS ARE OPINIONS, GIVEN FREELY BY THE COMMENTORS.
    7 - You must be 18 years of age or older to comment.

  1. the way i see it, these people should have gotten LIFE!

  2. Jean, who was married to Henry, stole the house that was this woman’s father’s…and even the her mother’s rings! Jean needs to be in jail, too! Thief! Some con old hag stealing from the man’s kids!! WRONG!

    • First fact 1: she was not married to Henry. Fact 2: In her husband’s will he left the house & his entire estate to her. So she didn’t steal the house. Fact 3: If the rings were so important to Lela, then why didn’t she talk to her stepmom about it seeing as they stayed close for years after her father died? For you to call this woman a thief for staying in a home that was rightfully hers, is wrong. They deserve a lot more then the sentence they got.

  3. Not that they should have killed her, but the wife (jan/jean) did a horrible thing to keep the daughter’s rings that belonged to her mother from her! The wife who lived was very very wrong to begin with! They house shouldn’t even be hers…she was asking for hatred at the least by stealing family heirlooms!

    • Interesting – that’s an ignorant way of looking at it. The Law in Sarasota (or rather Florida) clearly stipulates that the children will receive part of the estate. Lela was entitled by legal means to either contest or sue for her rightful benefits. So…I suppose she didn’t get the rings.

    • Her rings! Of course they should have killed her and then killed her again! I say you steal a ring you should be killed by a mob! How dare. She?

  4. Interesting…this was my brother in law’s father that was STRANGLED AND CARVED up. Jan was left for dead, but luckily survived. YOU, obviously, are a sick friend of these losers and/or their birth mother. Tyana said it correctly, you are ignorant. I have far more colorful adjectives to describe you, but since you ARE ignorant, you will only come back with your lame comments so I won’t waste my time. My family will be at either of these MURDERERS parole hearings, should they come up, and will try to keep them in until THEY die which is what they deserve.

    • When you find out when their parole hearings are, can you post that information here? Then I can get people to send in letters to oppose their paroles and keep them in prison for life. Thanks!
