    i was reading the comments and i noticed the one i posted earlier had been taken off.i wanted to speak about doyle he was the victim.he is laying in a grave about three minutes away from me.he cannot speak for himself now.it saddens the people here that people that didnt know him say he was a drug dealer.he was loved by everyone that knew him.the four people that did this dont know how many they have hurt for taking his life.also one of the boys was laughing while in court.so do you think he had any remorse?

    I knew Doyle well and he was a great man. He never bothered any one and had a heart of gold. What happend to him was wrong and EVIL and I hope they all pay for it. My heart and my prayers go out to his sons.

    I was best friends with Jaclyn up to the 6th grade till I moved but I still went and got her on vacation to stay with me. Never in my mind I would think she would do some thing so horrible. There minds where trouble and sickened and did some thing horrible. I will always have a spot for Jaclyn in my heart but in the back of my mind know the horrible deed she did. I pray for his family and for my friend.

    That is such a scenic and beautiful area and it is sad that it will get bad publicity for this murder . A lot of people like to go there because it is so peaceful and beautiful . You have boating , fishing , hunting , camping and the very beautiful fall season is coming soon . The residents in that area are so friendly and always wave when they pass you on those country roads . At least law enforcement got them .
