  2. justice for Julian!!! let his mother get some closure.
  3. I agree Nancy. We watched Julian and his sibling grow up. Tragedy touched their lives early. Their mom is a great teacher and a loving mother.
  4. Wow, he was the son of a local school teacher. That's kind of surprising. Kind of goes to show that no matter what socioeconomic background, it can happen to anybody.
  5. My daughter just told me she knew Julien she just found out and is crying her eyes out.....wow there better be some justice for that baby !!!
  6. The punishment for these should be the same as what they gave to a young man and his family. People do crimes but yet the punishment is never strict enough they continue with this lifestyle until something like this happens .They are a menace to society and will continue to be as long our judicial system allows them to be .Butler County is the worse for allowing repeat offenders off with a fine that rarely gets paid .It is time that people like this pay for what they have done.

  12. Hey Julian. I know we weren't close, and I'm not claiming to be close now. But the last time we saw each other you literally ran up to me and bear hugged me. I'm gonna miss that. For everyone else... stay strong, support each other and don't let shit get in the way. My thoughts are with all of y'all.
  13. Just found the courage to listen to the 911 call. I imagined you driving off into the sunset with your Father, to a far better destination then Fairfield.
