  1. My heart goes out to Amara & Bob & their families (especially Amara’s daughter). But NOT Chris Wells. It is appalling that Chris Wells is sent $300 a month while he is in prison for 2 murders.

  2. I just learned about this horrible story. I hope and pray Amara’s daughter and Tammy Rafferty (their families, also) are not just coping, but thriving.
    Crystal methamphetamine is a scourge upon this land. It has ruined too many lives; I know from personal experience, unfortunately.
    That being said, this cowardly POS (Wells; they’re all cowardly PsOS) didn’t even commit the murders himself.

  3. Went to school with both Chris and Tammy Wells. Would never have imagined this. Both were very attractive/popular. Chris had clearly lost his mind to drugs. I hear thru his friends he started the drug use at VA Tech and it only got worse. I am so sorry their lives turned out this way. God speed to Tammy and her family and to Amaras daughter and family. Horrible, awful, stunning for all.
