  1. I just want the family and friends of this young lady to know that I, along with my church family in Warren has been praying for her safe return. We hope and pray that she is found safe and unharmed soon. May GOD Bless you all.

  2. Dragonheart says:

    I hope she is found alive and well. Hoping for your safe return.

  4. Kristi hamilton says:

    To the family I am so sorry I have been and will continue to pray for you all.

  5. Sending prayers to the family and friends!

  6. This is just so sad. This woman was a daughter, a sister (twin), a mother, an auntie and a friend. I was hoping and praying for a MIRACLE, but now all I can do is pray for her family and friends.

  7. Really? says:

    150,000? Only 15000 to get out?! WOW!!!

  8. Roshell booker says:

    Is this the man who murdered my father Pete Bethune 24 December 1994 and didn’t serve a week in jail. I will be at this trial.

  9. miyoshi leonard smith says:

    To the family of Ms. Walton. Sorry to hear of your loss. Praying that GOD gives you strength.

  10. Confused says:

    To the family and friends of Tangela. My heart is deeply sadden by such nonsense. I will continue to pray for strength and comfort. Tangela was a very energized young lady beautiful inside and out. I also pray for the “suspect”, why he’s called the “suspect” is unknown to many, but my prayers also go out to his family as well. I can’t help but to wonder how does this man get a bond and just yesterday a young man in Jefferson County gets no bond on First Degree Battery, Kidnapping Charges. This so not right!! God Bless America!!

  11. Prayer Warrior says:

    So very sorry for this family’s loss. I pray the Lord will minister to them greatly during this time.

  12. Newton says:

    I am praying for her family; especially her three children. May God be with them. She is now resting in peace. I know she is looking down on her family. She was very kind hearted and had a smile that could light up the world.

  13. RE: Confused says:

    First and foremost I agree with you on thinking some people should not be given a bond or a chance to get out but:

    The only crime committed by a person or persons that does not receive a bond is Capital Murder. However, there are several charges that once they are arrested they are not given a bond amount until a judge sees them and sets a bond. The alleged First Degree Battery & Kidnapping charges you mentioned with no bond may be true at the time of arrest but within 72 hours they have to be taken before a judge who will set a bond at that time. Just as a domestic charge if you are arrested on a Friday night you will remain in jail until at least Monday because you have “no bond” until the charged person appears before a judge and he/she sets a bond. Even though we may not agree with some people being able to bond on charges that is not an option but the law.

  14. Teresa says:

    REALLY….. I’m with you…. Really 150.000 bond???

  15. Dragonheart says:

    This really saddens me. I was so hoping she was well and breathing. My thoughts to her family and friends. Someone in the Northwest cares.

  16. I pray for the Walton & Williams Family cause I no both families are hurting right now. If ever it is a time to come together in unity and pray it’s now. The devil really had to be in control of the mans mind to take the live of someone he was suppose to love. My heart truly goes out to all the children involved because now they have lost a father & a mother.

  17. JLD says:

    So sad that he chose to kill her instead of just taking her back home. Lord have mercy on the family for this was a senseless act of violence.

  18. Anthony says:

    This is truly sad. Was her like only worth $15,000 cash and $150,000 bond. If someone puts up the money to bond him out, I hope they loose every penny of it. What was the judge thinking to set such a low bond? He should have put himself in the parents place. Especially if he has kids/daughter. I don’t know if the suspect has a daughter. But, I wonder how he would feel if someone did this to his daughter. He has no respect for life and should not be allowed to walk among the free again.

  19. Buster Rudy says:

    Confused I thought the same thing.

  20. denetra says:

    I pray that God will give both families strength!
