    You would have to be pretty heartless to beat a man an then drag him out of a car an kill him...i hope that whoever it was that killed larry gets put to death...they kill someone they should get killed back...i feel tremendiously for his family an loved ones...i knew him an he might not have been the greatest person but NO ONE deserves what they did to him...he was the only child his mother had everyone that knows her knows the pain she has went through...larry wasnt my favorite person but i do know he didnt need to die...he has 5 children an now they are left with a father... it is bad what people will do an its ashamed that this happen to him an i am very sorry that it did...RIP Larry D Jones...when judgement day comes i would h8 to be the people that kill...

    I sure am sorry about this family's loss. To Tommy - As a native and Very Proud Kentuckian, I am glad that you are gone and hope you don't come back. Kentucky is a beautiful place to live and I love it here. There are bad things that happen anywhere not just here. God bless this family. You will be in our prayers.

    i dont no why some will put there state down but yet still live in it.its bad ever where..i dont like the killing either.its sad any way you look at it..but most of the times its either drugs or some one getting robbed.but very sad. the law needs to do more. murders dont get enuff time in prison for it. if it was me they would be in jail life time with very hard labor.and with no phones or tv.s or sports.3 meals aday.that would stop..people killing to get in prison.cause they got it made in there.

    no matter what a person does they dont deserve to have their lives taken.

    Drugs shouldn't be the point to this story the point should be that a man was murdered in cold blood and that now his family is suffering a great loss. Whether drugs were involved or not nobody deserves to die this way. Nobody has the right to take a life of another espesically over something so stupid as money or drugs. My heart goes out to all that knew and loved him. i just hope they find the heartless individual or individuals that committed this horrible crime. And i hope they are punished to the fullest extent of the law.

    @Tommy T Location: Gone from SE KY If you think the sticks of ky is so deadly youd better never visit a real city. Like LA, NY, or DC just to name a few. Ive even been to new orleans pre katrina and I still think it has more to do with what your doing and who yo do it with than just random acts of murder.
