    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.).

  1. DAMN!!! That poor girl! This stupid bitch killed this girl, out of jealousy, now look she have also lost her life, and she cnt b wit her son, this story is truly a tragedy as well as stupidity, that should have lock keyon up to, cuz if it wasnt for him try n 2 b a ugly az wanna b player, that lovely beautiful girl, would steel b here take n care of her gift from the man above

  2. I really believe they both had something to do with Avis’ murder.. I watch a lot of shows on this murder. The police found gun powder residue on Keyons right hand, they found Carlas shoe print from on the back door, however why would she keep the same shoes in question with blood on them. Keyon also wore those same shoes of Carlas. They found no evidence what so ever as to Carla ever being in the home. All the blood was on keyon, even if he did lean over to check her, the blood spatter on him wouldn’t be like it was. I truly believe they both planned and executed this murder

  3. Please add Fatal Attraction episode “With This Bullet, I Thee Kill” as another show featuring this story. Thank you.
