    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). 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. 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-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - 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.

  1. That is sad..She didn’t deserve that. God bless her

  2. Although Elizabeth choose to live that lifestyle she did not deserve to die the way she did. I pray that who ever is responsible for her murder would get the maximum penalty. Inspite of her difficult life there was a side of her that everyone loved. She was a caring & friendly, idividual. She may have been the way she was but she still touched the heart to those that were around her.I know that she is now in a better place May she rest in peace

  3. @ a relative-

    as the child of a drug-addict mother, i know exactly what you mean. your loved one had problems just like all the rest of humankind, but you are right. she DIDN’T deserve to die like that. may she rest in peace and may you find comfort knowing that she is now free from earthly torment and in a better place.

  4. […] as “A Relative.” In some ways it’s also ambivalent about her life, but it’s a more humane eulogy than anything the media seems willing to grant her: Although Elizabeth choose to live that […]

  5. Christopher, I care about prostitutes.. They are still human beings who had a hard life brought on mostly by drugs.. Not all of them but most of them. That is what is wrong with this world not a lot of caring about others who are less fortunate than some..
    God rest her soul and bless her family.

  6. Lavonna,
    Couldn’t of been said better. She was someone’s sister, mother, friend. Only someone sick could attack a person as defenseless as she. RIP Elizabeth, and God bless you.

  7. It is sick and heartless for any person to hurt someone that is obviously defenseless. Just because she was a prostitute does not mean that she is any less human than anyone else.
