This is one brave little girl who even though lost her immediate family, saved
other family members who undoubtedly would have been next by her 911 call. May
the Lord continue to bless her through the difficult days ahead. Her uncle
should be found guilty of Murder 1. May he never see the light of day again. I
understand under Texas law they take permanent action in cases like this and
don't fool around!
We need a fast track to put men who commit violence against women behind bars.
No more worthless restraining orders. The minute a woman is hit or dragged
about by the hair put the man in prison for some years.
What a long and difficult road this little girl will have to travel alone! So
glad she has extended family who will wrap their arms around her and help her
face this. That which doesn't kill us makes us stronger - in this case
that means literally! Hang in there, sweetheart! Many prayers and people are
in your corner!
She is right about the angels and being able to see her family again one day.
Doesn't keep me from hoping the killer is locked away and they lose the
key. He has proved over and over again (this time costing this wonderful young
woman her family) that he can't live among civilized people.

We have the privilege of knowing the Stay family, and they were strong in faith
and had such a close family. Cassidy is a product of this strength and love,
and because of her faith she will be able move forward and forgive. They are
missed very much.
I know of people who refuse to read, listen or watch the news because of the
sorrow that it brings. What do incidents like this tell us about the
mournful condition of this mortal existence?Missionaries from the
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have a message of hope for families.
Open your doors and let them in.
I'm glad this girl is doing well and I love the fact she quoted
Dumbledore.@iron&clay;The Jehovah's Witnesses
have a message of hope for families, just as do the LDS. Open your doors and
let them in.
Ranch - That's the initial message from the JWs, but I have very good
friends who had a personal disagreement with JW local leadership and were and
are vindictively shunned by the entire congregation. This is a very real
difference between JW and LDS.
What a strong young lady! The justice system needs to administer swift
judgement on the shooter. A short trial and a quick execution.
To quote the Brian Dennehy character from Silverado, "We'll give you a
fair trial, and a first class hanging." Hopefully quickly.
@J-TX;I have some very good friends who had a disagreement with LDS
leadership and were ex'd and are now shunned. Just recently, the news was
filled with the shunning of Ms. Kate Kelly. I don't see a difference
between your church or the Jehovah's Witnesses (or any other, for that
matter).In any case, the point I was (perhaps too) subtly trying to
make to I&C was that this particular forum is not an appropriate place to
proselytize for your religion.
Texas justice is sure, if not as swift as we would like. We execute murderers.
We don't fall for that idea that criminals deserve a chance to be
rehabilitated or that execution is for revenge. We put criminals where they
belong, in prison to protect the law abiding citizen. That is where Utah should
have put him. Haskell had proven himself to be dangerous to innocent citizens.
He should have already been in jail and never have gotten to Texas. When will
common sense prevail?
