  1. I know members of this family and find it a shame that they have been through this awful process.

  2. Lacyi
    We all send out our Love and Prayers to you and your family

  3. Lacyi,
    Was glad to hear your voice today and to know from you that you and the siblings are doing well with all that you have been through. As always my family extends our Love & Prayers to you.

  4. CindyT,

    I doubt Lacyi is reading this. She has complained to me about my posting on their story.

  5. I believe the Richardson trial was nothing more than a witch hunt and he was guilty in the eyes of the state as well as the populations of small towns in Upper Michigan before the trial ever began. I want it known the jury was allowed to go home every night where they had access to television, Internet and newspapers. He did not get a fair trial. He was found guilty based on opinions, not facts. The appeal will show this. It would be easier to accept he is guilty if they had evidence other than people gossiping and showboating for Dateline NBC’s camera.

  6. Family of Juanita: you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    This man changed his story 3 times!! He is gulity or he wouldn’t have changed his story.. He should rot in jail

  7. GUILTY!! Thankfully justice was served and the murdering Richardson got First Degree Murder. He will be sentenced on May 19, 2008. Thankfully the jury saw what a lying, narcissistic person Tom was and was not convinced by the traumatized children or the psycho ‘bible babe’ girlfriend who didn’t want to hook up with anyone who had a “live ex-wife”. Hopefully bb gets charged as an accomplice!

  8. Anyone who had a “live ex-wife”? She’s guilty too!!

  9. What gives any man or woman to push or hurt the other ? I think his fellow got what he had coming to him. For 1 you are to love your spouse and if things are getting rough then you take on of the options out there to help you, that doesn’t give you the right to throw him/her of off a cliff, Number 2 its evident from what I have read about it that he didn’t even think of his children when he did what he did, and number 3 I don’t think his punishment fits his crime he should be sentced to death for his actions because she never asked to die or forced her death by pushing her off the cliff .

    I am sorry to the family for having to go threw all of this its not right or fair .

    I know two of the family members and I love you both .

    Rhonda

  10. My thoughts go out to Jaunita’s Family. 1st and foremost ask yourself why a man who is in the woods would walk back to the bathrooms. Was he ashame to go to the bathroom in the woods or was he setting his story lol up.

  11. and I guess your name of Youareallmorons is showing that you are not a sinner?

  12. How do you speak to someone of authority regarding this case?

  13. You would speak to one of the attorneys or the detectives involved.

    Alger County Prosecutor Karen Bahrman [906-387-2117]
    Defense Attorney Jason Elmore (with McCurdy & Wotila) [(231) 775-1391]

    Police [906-387-2275]

  14. what state did this happen in?

  15. Michigan, as stated in the title.

  16. I believe he’s guilty. Very cold-blooded the way he planned Juanita’s murder. I hope he never gets outta jail, and gets his a** kicked daily.
    RIP Juanita Richardson. Justice.

  17. I understand the hurts and anger at the family loss, however, I grew up in a family that worked in the legal system and have seen so many juries make mistakes based on emotion rather than fact. I am nt saying he is innocent, but what if he is? The introduction of DNA released thousands of Americans from wrongful imprisonment. I just desire true justice. If he really is a narcissist, the combination of narcissism and trauma could easily justify the changing of stories. He could have tried to impress the police date with his sad story. Again, I respect the loss but my motto is “seek the truth no matter what the cost” and I just hope he is truly guilty or his life and his children’s lives are all casualties of this. In addition, Juanita’s family needs to shower her children with love & forgiveness while understanding & respecting their views. They are the greatest victims of all and need all of the reconciliation available. Please extend forgiveness to them and if there is any doubt, continue to seek the truth. God Bless. KW
