Another senseless death because U.S. Senators like Ron Wyden and Gordon Smith and many other politicians have refused to enforce our immigration laws. I wonder how many more lovely young girls have to die before the American people have had enough?

what i would like to know is why was her sister partying in another apartment? I am sorry for her loss but why wasn't she watching her like i'm sure she was supposed be? she was only 15.

Dani and Tyler grew up together and were best friends. They mentioned to me they were going to marry each other one day. We are very upset about the lose of such a sweet and wonderful girl. The person that committed this crime will get his punishment one way or another, even if the case doesn't get solved. We all know who will take care of that. My feelings go out to the family and her friends. God Bless. Lisa Miller
