There is no connection between my brother’s children and Farrar. I am very sure of that.

As far as I know there is no connection. Christopher was not arrested at his home but at the home of a relative, his Aunt, where he had been living for several months helping to care for his Grandmother who suffers from Dementia. I can not attest to the facts of what happened. I can say Christopher has been a blessing to my family, what happened on July 9th is as horrifying to me as anyone else. Did Satan win this battle for a child of God?? I can only pray that is not the case. My God is a loving and forgiving God. My prayers and condolences go out to the Braden family. It is a tragedy what happened on that fateful day and only 2 people really know what happened. One is in Heaven with our Father and the other in jail for the rest of his life most likely. Mr. Braden’s family is suffering over this loss and I can only pray for their peace.

Our family has been assured that my brother and the accused never had any contact before the shooting.
