  1. just wanted to say I have followed this sence she was missing saterday and when I found out she had been found and how she was found I said a prayer for her and her family….my heart bleeds for her family Im so sorry for there lose


  2. Thanks for the prayers Tim, a horrible murder like this wounds a whole community for a part of us is gone forever; it tears at my heart too.

    I’m an aetheist so for me to pray would be false, but I do encourage folks of faith to leave a prayer here, prayer helps heal wounds.

  3. im so sorry…i feel so bad….i wanted to send al lmy prayers to kelsey’s family.! R.I.P Kelsey…..i didnt know u but my heart goes out to u…u are an angel…i wish ur family the best!!

  4. The Kelsey Smith incident inspires me to propose that the male population, for the sake of social order, be required to face the discipline and close supervision afforded by universal, compulsory military service. Bring back the draft!

    Other nations do this, and it is part of our history as well. This young man who murdered her should have been residing in a barrack, or the brig!

  5. I hear you Leslie, but after reading some more background on the subject, I think he should be residing below ground.
