I have rode the bus with this kid since the begining of the year. Never in 10 million years would i have thought he would do something this stupid, this low, this dishonerable. I am seriously DSAPPOINTED in him. I hope he learns from his mistake. This is really sad. I just want to know what he was thinking?

From what I know

As far as I can tell, murder isn't a mistake, it is a choice.

Jolly jury wannabe

" I hope he learns from his mistake" A mistake is when you knock over your milk, a mistake is making a left turn instead of a right. A cold blooded murder is when you kill a woman for a handful of coin. Oh pickme-pickme, please let me be on the jury, I will make sure he "learns from his mistake"


i have known this kid for over 3 to 4 years. i would have never thought that he would end up doing this to anyone but we all do things that no one thinks we will. i know that he was probably with someone else but one ones for sure.i hope the best for his family and for the family of the victim as well.

same here

I am just so confused on why he would do something like this. I wish he would have not acted on impulse and thought about the consequences.

Wow how the world turns!

Lee Roy Jolly jr. I just can't believe it one minute he is riding his bike next to me then the next in a police car. This young man goes to school with me, rides the bus with me, and has also walked around southport with me, friends and my daughter. My heart goes out to the victim's(myrie)son and family. I hope this iccident can bring us togeather. In this situation there is two victims, two people that have lose there lives!!!
