    This is what happens when you let child molesters roam free. He should never have been let out on bond. These people are sick. What he did to those children is brutal, just like what he did to his ex wife and family. Should have never had the chance.

    This is a sad situation all the way around. all the families affected, the families of the murdered victims, the children and their family, and even his family will suffer from his actions. Such sorrow in this world.

    I don’t think he took the easy way out, I personally believe he is in hell right now in torment, because he neglected his soul, and chose an evil path in life, and rejected the saving grace of Jesus Christ.

    I’m thankful no one (except the murder suspect) was hurt during this ordeal and a big thank you to our underpaid Sheriff Deputies who stopped this man before he endangered the lives of those within our community. Again, they put their lives on the line for us everyday and aren’t compensated enough for it.

    He took the easy way out. What a coward, pedophile, and loser!

    So sad for his four victims. Remember, he had a trial set for sexual assault of a minor in another state this September.
    Not sad for him at all.

    Glad this loser saved us the tax dollars of a trial and god knows how many years of supporting this person in prison. I hate his family will have to deal with this however I am pleased with his decision. I know others will not agree but that is fine we all have our own opinions.
