  1. And you call yourself a journalist? I have known this family since the girls were little. You don’t know anything! Does Kayla liking girls or her dad having a criminal record justify this animal killing her in cold blood? Then trying to kill himself because he knew the consequences of HIS choice! Oh and by the way, maybe you should also report that her dad paid for his crimes and is doing wonderful! It’s called making mistakes. At least he owned up and paid the consequences in full for what he did. This murderer got the cowards way, the easy way out! And this certainly was no mistake….it was deliberate. Maybe it would be more fitting for you to write for the tabloids since you like to exploit people. It’s those like you that are responsible for giving honest journalists a bad name…..

    • I’m using it now and it’s awesome! I’ve signed up for my account and have been bringing in fat paychecks. For real, my first week I made $302 and the second week I doubled it and then it kinda snowballed too $122 a day.M$3…..

      Just follow the course>>>>>> MomJob70.Tk

    • Just so everyone knows, they were not a couple. He had previously tried to strangle her until she passed out. Obviously, she dumped him. He would not leave her alone and a few days before he murdered her, she had said that he had threatened to kill her. He planned to kill her. Went there with a gun and when her back was turned, put a blanket over her head and put 2 bullets in her head…..enough said.w

  2. This makes Kayla out to be the one in the wrong. Kayla is my niece. She was a great kid. This bastard killed her after 1, only going out with her after 3 months, 2, she left him because the choked her and told her he was going to kill her. He was a coward and pathetic and deserved to die and I hope he is suffering in HELL for the rest of eternity. F him.

    • Should have nipped it in the bud before it happened Will too late now buddy.You want to get here and act like you have a set of balls after the fact

      • You r an idiot. What does that even mean. Nipped it in the bud. What were any of us supposed to do. She left him. What call the cops what would they have done nothing, get a restraining order again he would of done it either way. How r we or her the ones to blame but he is the victim.

    • Exactly…..thank you! He’s lucky he died before her dad got there! He is by no means the victim…..he showed up with a gun and murdered her. She had tried to get rid of him, but he wouldn’t leave her alone. They call him a respectable great guy! What a bunch of idiots…..

  3. I’m using it now and it’s awesome! I’ve signed up for my account and have been bringing in fat paychecks. For real ADq, my first week I made $304 and the second week I doubled it and then it kinda snowballed to $120 a day.…..

  4. I have known her since she was young..age 8 or so. She and her sweet sister have overcome and triumphed over so many more challenges than any young person should have to. She was an adult by legal age standards. But, the reality is she was still a teen who deserved to live out her full adult life and whatever came with it. I agree with Kiki. There was nothing that Kayla did wrong to deserve her life to be cut so short. And now her sister, her family and friends pay the consequences for a debt they never owed to begin with. YOU KNOW NOTHING about her! Let her family and friends grieve without your ill and misinformed choice of “FACTS”. Disgusting!

  5. This is ridiculous. Kayla also graduated from high school just recently. All yall are tryna bring up all this stuff to make her look bad. He shot her and it dont matter whether she likes girls whether they were dating or not. He went to her house and shot her there is no excuse for that. I hope he suffered severely his last couple of hours.

  6. Five fact I really need to know not this bull….
    1. Davon drove to kayla’s apartment with a friend, on the drive he was acting funny keep telling him friend he loved him. His friend knew something was wrong and did nothing. His friend waited in the car and Davon went inside. Kayla opened the door, she was a caring trusting person, at some point he shot her in the chest then text him him telling her what he did he then lad next to her and shot himself in the chest. She was dead when cop got there. He died later at the hospital.
    2. Davon was abusive. She BROKE UP WITH HIM because he choked her and told her he was going to kill her. After she left him he texted he hundreds of texts which she didn’t respond to she told him several times to leave her alone.
    3. She was a sweet, caring girl who didn’t deserve what happened. She was loved. Her family and friends will miss her. Her Facebook page has several post showing their love.
    4. Yes she moved from Florida to maryland to see and her to know her family better. She graduated from high school, on honor roll. She worked at Cracker Barrel. She was a few weeks away from getting her license.
    5. He was a pathetic coward who couldn’t take rejection, all she did was break up with him, after only going out with him for 3 months. He took the easy was out. I hope he suffered. Davon is burning in hell for what he did.

      • It did come out that he put a blanket over her head when her back was turned and put 2 bullets in her head. I suppose the blanket was to muffle the sound of the gun.so she was not shot in the chest. Her family is suffering horribly as we all are who knew her. Thank God she didn’t know what hit her! I’m sorry, but I hope he suffered!

  7. what does having a criminal record have to do with his daughter being murdered? The comments on this “article” are horrifying as well. I sincerely hope her family doesn’t read any of this.
