Omg what is really happening….SUCH a horrible tale

Tishana Cole-Robertson

I know the mother is grieving but she needs to be arrested too.. She knew about this relationship and didn’t say anything. Even allowed this man to sleep over her house based on reports. How can a parent allow that. This was not even her first pregnancy by him.. He deserves life in prison and these parents need to do better with reporting these pedophiles…

I can’t believe some people here are actually blaming a 14 y.o. child for getting pregnant and murdered by a 37 y o. man. Are you guys hearing yourselve. A 14 y.o. is still a child under the law and is, therefore, incapable of consenting to sexual intercourse or entering into a contract. There is good reason why the law treats individuals 16 y.o. and under that way. They have not yet develop the sense to understand the consequences of their actions. No matter how “big” a man believes a 14 y.o. may look or act, if he has any… Read more »

He should have acted with responsibility as a father figure. And I have worked with some young people and I will tell you they understand certain things. So if you are posting things out of theory or speculations until you have worked with young people and their parents then…..

Reports have it that this was her second pregnancy and her mother was actually the one who sold her… interesting how no-one asked where her mother was in all of this…

For all these men here who think that they are not culpable for having sex with a 14 y.o. (boy or girl) simply because the 14 y.o. “they know what they getting into” or “that they understand certain things” ….it”s called STATUTORY RAPE! The law says a 14 y o. CANNOT GIVE CONSENT! So, whether she said yes or no is irrelevant. Whether she “knows what she is getting into” or not is irrelevant. I can only assume that all the men here blaming the 14 y.o. for having sex with a 37 y.o man believe its ok for a… Read more »

Tishana Cole-Robertson

If these grown men say no to these underage girls then hey wouldn’t be so out of control.. Stop accepting these behaviors and the pattern will change.. Report these nasty bastards and stop blaming these children. I was a little girl and I remember these grown men trying to talk to me even when I was in my school uniform. My mother raised me very well and I was never in need so I didn’t fall prey to this foolishness.. These girls are not out of control these nasty men are…

omg dese ppl r suh sick

Monique Nembhard-Wilson

It is termed ‘statutory rape’…because a minor CANNOT give consent to have sex. We always blame the children WHAT ABOUT THIS ADULT THAT TOOK ADVANTAGE OF HER? Young girls act this way because of these nasty pigs and because adults like some of the posters here, her parents and this dutty businessman are ignorant to the immorality involved and who the actual victim is.

If this man was sleeping with this child, her parents and guardians who would have known about this should also be charged for negligent parenting. we are living in a sick society, when things like this can be happening and only when it ends in tragedy someone is held accountable.

I pray for my Island. I hope one day there can be a system set in place to assist struggling families and individuals, Maybe then such a young girl wont need to go to these older men that’s just using them to take their innocence and in some cases their lives. May God bless her Family and love ones.

There needs to be a whole lot of teaching in schools about sexual abuse of minors in the community! Time to empower the children and young people!! Nobody deserves this. Leaving the family broken…. RIP. When are these men going to pay for what they did?!

Maybe, this evil mother is one of those who stand for nothing and fall for everything; she may be a single parents with a devilish child who maybe one she cannot talk to, involved in everything and involved with one of what they called today ”Dog Hart Man”, evil and wicked. Many time teachers, parents, up to Police men know of these activity and draw white sheet over everything; do nothing about it until worst of the worst realized. Sorry for the child who never really get the chance to realize her dream, exposed to early by a carless parent.… Read more »

Do not use all of these Private Money Lender here, there are not legitimate and if they have a free email account tag i.e. yahoo, gmail, hotmail, live etc then they are not legitimate. If they have telephone number with international dialing codes from Nigeria, India, UK, Singapore and France then you have to beware. A legitimate company would have a genuine website, personalized email address/account and based in the country they claim they are. I would recommend anyone looking a a serious/honest loan lender to visit: DAVID HERLEY FINANCE HOME BASED IN THE USA and their reputation speaks louder… Read more »
