    • This young lady cheered with my daughter she is not a bad person in a persons rap sheet says nothing about the way they died. I’m sure her parents would be heartbroken to read your comment. This young girl may have been a victim of human trafficking.

      • I’m sorry, but her activities very well may have played a role leading up to her unfortunate passing. The way we ALL act can have a profound impact on the outcome of our lives (Success/Failure).

  1. Walter, why was it so important to point this out? She was someone’s daughter, someone’s grandchild, someone’s friend, yet you have to do this? They don’t want your phony “condolences”.

  2. @knitbunnie,
    🙏 I pray for this family tonight. Alyssa was just a baby. And her family needs the love and support of compassionate community. 🌷♥️ You have my unconditional love, support, and prayers.

    That’s exactly why people would rather not have their loved ones publicly posted.
    All you haters…and naysayers …go somewhere else and spew your hateful venom or support these poor families who have to have their deep personal wounds hung out for all to see and senselessly and cruelly comment on.


  3. Allysa was my daughter’s best friend and like one of my own
    Shame on you for your comment. If this world had more people like her in this world and less like you we would be alot better off. . How dare you follow up with some fake ass condolences. Shame on you.

    • Shame on you for your lame attack. You are always fowling up these blogs with your lame opinions and assumptions about anything and everything you know nothing about. Almost everything you opine about is your lame internal speculation just like in this case. Don’t care how you view issues through your weed colored glasses. You’re an expert on everything and nothing at the same time. Retire your keyboard please.

  4. Take it however you want ass^hol%s. Booking sheet listed “conspiracy”, which implies shitty friends was my reference.. Keyboard warriors who claim to be true friends show up at the lamest times.

    • My thoughts;

      😇Life’s short. Blessed are the merciful, they shall receive mercy [from God].

      I want to forgive and be forgiven.

      I wanna be the reason someone believes they can change their life.

      I want to be the reason someone hopes for a miracle and believes one can happen to them!

      I want to be a better person who cares for and inspires others to be better. And I want to be inspired by someone. 😇

    • Walter P. you seemed to start this with a snide comment about the dead woman’s booking record. You are the only asshole commenting.

  5. All of you on here saying well her record tells it all! Good mr. And Mrs. goody toshoes let me guess you are all perfect and have never done something wrong?? I’m so done with people and law enforcement assuming cause of their record they mean nothing. Well let me explain to all of you judge mental ass hats THEY DO MATTER! I am a mother of an adult child who I was told well she has a record and we will do our best for them to not take a missing persons report. My daughter stayed in touch with me every day and just because she lived a certain life style doesn’t mean she isn’t a person. ALL LIVES MATTER NO MATTER WHAT. So stop with your oh she this and she that. It may be your son daughter or grand child at some point. How would you like it then?? Take a minute to think about what I said so maybe next time you can have some compassion for all who are involved. This goes for law enforcement also!

    • Oh and by the way if they had listened to me they would have caught the murders before they murdered four more girls. But nope they were all to willing to judge first.

  6. Very sad condolences to her family 💓 may she rest in
    🕊️ lord wàtch over our young women we know not what they do but guide them home to you amen
