    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.).

Psycho For Love: Ganesh “Remy” Ramsaran killed his wife, Jennifer Ramsaran, for the life insurance; Sentenced to 25 years to life in prison

dv awareness

Jennifer Ramsaran
Jennifer Ramsaran

In this case, Jennifer Ramsaran was killed by her husband, Ganes (Remy). He was having an affair with…her BEST FRIEND. Unfortunately, (or maybe fortunately for her) she did not know. I do not understand how someone can do this. Eileen Sayres obviously did not care about “her best friend” to be doing this. She even wanted to move into Jennifer’s house before Jennifer’s body was found. How cold is that? I know that many times feelings change and you no longer love your partner. However, learn this word: DIVORCE. Divorce is much better than murder. Ganesh took away the mother of his children. How could he do that to them?
