  • This is wickedness and cowardice. I do not understand how the human mind can become so twisted

  • We need to look at these men behaviours,I am assuming is bun him getting, and who rise,why after him done he hides his son and do what’s best kill himself.
    Too much of this happening with these crazy men,they must get involved but must not.
    I am just assuming that it’s an affair situation

  • She was my friend and not only did she left me broken she left everyone with a feeling that will never go away a heart wrenching one ..everytime I think about her and her mom all I can do is cry til I can’t cry anymore

  • If him can save his son why didn’t he save the Lady daughter just like how his son has nothing to do with it so does the little girl but what can we do but pray

  • I said the same why did he kill the poor child she did get a chance to become a woman oh God why the devil is out of chains…
