  • I am the mother of Janet Carroll. This beautiful human being was taken from us by this SORRY EXCUSE of a SO CALLED human. She was taken from her 4 children, family and friends, robbed of a life that was so precious…..she will never see her kids graduate, never see them marry, never see them have children of their own, and never see just the everyday simply things in life. I look out my window everyday like I have always done waiting for her to pull up into our driveway in her RED JEEP that she loved so much…. BUT that day will NEVER COME!!! I ask myself a lot of times… What could she have EVER done or EVER said to him take her life? Why couldn’t HE have JUST WALKED AWAY??? I now realize the PAIN and SORROW that someone else has gone through now that it has happened to me!!! I have always thought of myself as a good person… a loving person that would never or could never hurt another living thing…. BUT my thoughts these days (I know they are just thoughts) are to hurt that SOB…. to have someone choke him to an inch of his life… let him live…. only to repeat that again and again for as long as he shall live!!! I guess until someone hurts your child, you will never know how I feel and I don’t wish this on my worst enemy!!!! I Love you and Miss you so much JAN <3 You will Always remain in my thoughts and in my Heart for ALL ETERNITY!!!! Love, Mom

  • The woman killed is my best friends Daughter, Prayers go out to Johanna. This woman killed was a constant victim of control and abuse, a warning to women around the world domestic violence is still alive, arm yourselves with the truth. Know the signs of an abusive relationship and run the other way, it may mean your life.

  • Remember going to yard sale at this residence about a year and a half ago when we were going to the landfill. There was a young woman probably in her mid twenties with a toddler daughter running around. She said she was married, her and my wife was talking up a storm, but we didn’t see anyone else there. Very sad.
