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). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this.

Monsters Among Us: Brett Boettler and his family are charged in the horrific murders of Alize Smith and Jarron Moreland, who were dismembered and chained to cinder blocks before being thrown into a pond

Victims
Alize Smith, 21
Jarron Moreland, 21

I am so saddened that these victims have basically been forgotten by the media. And why? There is no valid reason. This is a horrific case with 2 young men being executed and then dismembered. And after that they are chained to cinder blocks and thrown into a pond. Who does that? A teen is charged with the murders, and 3 others, including his mother, are charged with helping him cover it up. HIS MOTHER helped. Wow. What a shining example of motherhood. I am disgusted by this. How can they even think is was okay to do? It’s not. Now 2 families are without their loved one forever. A child has lost his father. Mothers lost their sons. For what? Nothing. And no one cares. I beg of all of my readers to not forget them. Remember them and their loved ones. They deserve to be remembered. After all, they did have lives, too.
