  1. Im watching this episode on the ID Chanel my prayers to the victims and the killers will rot

  2. Do not believe everything the media write CURTIS GAMBILL was NOT a HS drop out. I indeed have Curtis HS diploma and certified school records. So if they tell a little lie, LE will tell another lie…

    • Angelina,

      What difference does that make? Heather Rich was still murdered whether Curtis Gambill had a diploma or not. I guess you did not read my comment policy. This is a place for the victims to be remembered, not a place to defend the accused/convicted. Curtis Gambill is a convicted murderer who escaped from jail. Also, what is the date on his diploma? What school did he graduate from? From what you are saying, he never dropped out of school, correct? That is easy to check. Now, if you are trying to say he got his diploma while incarcerated, that does not count. Prove your point – send a picture of his diploma. If you don’t, well, that proves all. But, what does his diploma or lack of one have to do with the murder of Heather Rich? You obviously have no compassion for her or her family, even though she was the victim, not him. Learn respect and compassion.

    • Your blog post: http://420ville-strange-discoveries.blogspot.com/2012/08/curtis-gambill-was-not-high-school-drop.html
      written yesterday, is a direct copy of this post. Please read the inbox messages I sent you on Facebook. I am very upset over this, as it is plagiarism, and I have reported it. I will also take any other actions necessary.

      And the record you posted does NOT prove he graduated high school, only that he attended. **update** OK, I relooked at it and yes, it shows he graduated May 19, 1995. I apologize for misreading it, but it came across a bit blurry there. However, it has NOTHING to do with Heather Rich (you know, the victim you don’t care about) so it does not belong here. DO NOT come here to defend a killer. This is a place to remember Heather Rich and her loved ones.

      And Angelina Mitchell [http://www.facebook.com/420ville] your last message was so classy and mature.
      ored her. Tells me you only care about killers. Sad that you try to talk about Hailey Dunn, but not any other victims. Only the killers.

    • Lemon face, heartless, bipolar, drunk. That’s what I hear…

    • Angela seriously what does it matter weather or not he graduated from school… He still is a murderer! He was tried and convicted by a jury. Do you not have any compassion for the poor victims family. You should be ashamed of yourself. If you have things like this to say, keep it to yourself or at least to people who give a crap. My deepest sympathy to the family and friends

  3. Oh, and by the way, this lady is an embarrassment for him, she doesn’t help his cause, he doesn’t even want anything to do with her. He’s accepted where he’s at, and doesn’t need this. Get over it, people have moved on Angelina, including curt. Now go take ur meds or whatever.

    • Here is a late reply for you.He doesn’t have a “cause”,he is a murderer.And convicted for it.PERIOD.Somehow ,I doubt her parents have “MOVED ON”.

  4. I saw the show about your daughter and I just wanted to tell you how sorry I was for your loss and how bad I felt for u

  5. They should have been executed in a very painful and drawn out manner. it appears that life in prison is not much of a deterrent these days. Free food, medical care, housing, etc. is hardly punitive. It lopoks like more of an inconvienance to them. There is no benefit for honest taxpayers for provide food, etc to these things for the many years until thy finally die on their own. Where is the return on all that investment we make for them?

  6. What a sad story. Randy Wood killed that girl and the other two were too stupid to call the cops.
