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. This guy should NEVER get out!! He was put on trial for the previous murder of Caroline Epps found in a motel room in Bergen County, NJ. He was found not guilty, however, after he was convicted of this crime he told officers he DID murder Ms. Epps. He had gone on trial for that, and was found not guilty, so he could not be placed on trial again for the Epps murder. This man should NEVER get out of jail!!!

  2. One of the Kids was my Niece and I miss her everyday and she will never come back. I don’t think he should be free since. She is never comming home.

    • I am so sorry for your loss…was the jury out of their mind when they gave this Devil manslaughter…I will pray for your niece. God Bless…….

  3. My mom was a juror on this trial. They were instructed by the judge to consider the defendents state of being when the murder took place. The “witnesses” who saw him near the scene of the crime testified that he appreared to be heavily under the influence of narcotics. Also – EVERYONE lied during the trial. The cops, the witnesses for the defense, the witnesses for the prosecution – everyone. They did the best they could.

  4. I remember this crime , I was 8 years old waiting for my dad to come home from work . At the time I lived on autumn ave and I used to go to bakery that was next to house where it happened and remember feeling sad about victims(kids) being my age . I’m 37 now and I still remember …

  5. This was my family… I was 7 years old when my cousins were killed. Especially my 14 year old cousin that was like my sister. I will never see them again… I remember being at the wake like it was yesterday. This monster deserves the same fate of my innocent family… May he burn in hell…always.

  6. I’m praying that this monster is still behind bars, and will remain there until he’s 85-years old or dead. How evil. This monster did what terrorists do within society.
