Why does how she looks influence any of you? She took an innocent life!! She should not have been released, and I cry for Jeffrey's family.


Yeah, she'll be looking real cute to some inmate and she will be walking around holding in inner lining of that someone's pocket pretty soon! Warm thoughts to the victim's family while they mourn their loss. 😔
