Angela was one of the sweetest and caring person I think I have known. I loved her very much she held a special place inside my heart, I will never forget the way she touched my life. I cannot understand why something so horrific could happen to such a great woman, I can only find solice in the fact that she resides in the hands of God. Mr. & Mrs. Hopkins I am so sorry for your loss

Angela was my friend, and co-worker. She was sweet and kind. I feel for her family, mother, father and kids josh and andrea. She talked about you all the time. She also talked about her husband but that will not be mentioned on here. My God bless her in heaven and you here on this earth. One day we will see her again. I miss her dearly. Teresa

I've noticed that the popos are being very tight-lipped about this tragedy. Since you two seemed to know her very well, I have to ask. Was this a case of domestic violence? Sorry for being so nosey. I did not know the victim, but have seen pics. Looks like a very beautiful woman. I wonder why there was such a huge age difference between her and the spouse?
Thanks for sharing and my thoughts and prayers are with ya.

I have been miss quoted in the news paper, I never said I was with Angela the night before her murder and her mother didnt live with her in hampton. Angela had a beautiful little home there that I helped her remodel. Yes we were very close but, the paper makes it out like we were some torrid lovers. That wasnt the case we did spend the night at each others house but, we were just close friends and nothing more. Everyone seems so quick to slam Angela and if you knew her you could never even dream of saying anything bad about her. She was one of the most wonderful women I have ever met, she was caring, sincere,loving and understanding. Had this tragedy not happend I think we would have had a very good life together. As far as Randy Graybeal goes everyone who knows him knows he was an abusive drunk and treated his co workers and friends as less than always referring to everyone as stupid and retarded, He believed he was gods gift to women and smarter than everyone else, when actually he is a hideous, very insecure drunkard and dont even touch this one folks cause everyone who knows him knows he was a rotten person. Everyone who knows both of them knows that randy was a control freak and refused her to even talk to men. As angela said he had a few short commings that made he very insecure and I am sure he brought them up the day he murdered her, I cant imagine the torture he put her through before he shot her. Randy is guilty and is a low life who deserves a life in prison looking like he does. I just hope his prison husband treats him the way he did Angela. I see his picture and I laugh at him, he still hasn't got what he really desevers but, that is waiting for him when he hits the joint. Thank God for justice and for the detectives and prosecutor in this matter.

When I received the call that Randy was arrested it made me feel a sense of the beginning of justice. I will be there for court and about the pic this is only the beginning for him. What he did to Angela can't be fixed but plastic surgery is expensive and I think he should be more worried with paying his lawyer.

Mr. Di Trapani,

Why did you leave messages on Randy's voicemail telling him everything you done to his wife in the bedroom? You are a liar, and a scumbag! I see right through you.

You know maybe Angela would still be alive if Mr. Di Trapani had cared enough about her to go check on her instead of just calling her cell phone repeatedly. I guess he was too much of a pu$$.

Mr. Di Trapani,

Maybe you should head over to the articles at tricities.com , and comment what you posted here. I think it would shed a lot more light on your particular situation, and you could bash the article writer there instead of on some sub-forum.

Hey there Lt.Ripples,

Are you just like Randy? Stupid! Like I have a death wish, look what he did to Angela. This Randy and all his drunk buddies who must be the only ones at his defense, cause his own family agrees he is an A hole, you have to know how crazy this man is. He is a skinny old man who talks alot of shat and carries a gun everywhere with him. Because he is a card carrying coward with a big mouth and no balls. He will talk a good game and threaten everyone but, without his pistol he is just the little man Angela said he was trying to impress the world one bottle of george dickle at a time. This low life beats women, yeah his friends know about it and so do his ex's and to be honest I think he deserves life with a prison husband who will put it to him like the ho he is and if we are lucky his prison husband will abuse him anally like he abused angela physically. Do you beat your wife Lt. Ripples? Or your man? why is everyone so quick to jump to this george dickle's drunk a$$ defense is everyone on of you a woman beater? I will say that he doesn't really look any better now and I will laugh at him at the trial for being the a$$ hole he is and for being such a bioooootch.... He could have been a man, maybe, not from what I hear, and walked away from Angela. He did file for divorce and he repeatedly told her to find a younger man. So all you wife beaters comment on how great Randy "da Woman beater" Graybeal is. Because no matter what your comments are he will only be remebered as the man that beat the hell out of Angela and killed her out of his own self insecurities.....

The one and only what? Idiot. Angela wanted this nut out of her life, he beat her and menatally abused her. I think the reconsilliation thing was brought on by her fear of him beating her. You must know Randy and how abusive he was to everyone, yet you support him...hmmm You must beat your women into shape to. Angela and I were friends who helped each other out at every chance we got, we were there for each other when we needed a friend to lean on. What Angela did has no relavence on this case, she sure as hell didn't shoot herself. She only wanted to be happy and to have a life not lived in fear of being beaten and mentally abused. Everyone who knows them knows how he abused her, you are just as trying to justify a murderer through some shat you know nothing about, go back to your bottle and get with us when you sober up....

Excuse me, Did I ever say that I was a drunken friend of Randy or a wife beater? Actually, I was a friend of Angela's who wonders why you did not love her enough to check on her. You said Randy was nothing but a "skinny old man". I guess you sure were afraid of a "skinny old man". Sure tells me what kind of man you are. Thanks for just calling my friend rather than going to check on her or better yet going with her if you cared 2 cents for her. If you love someone you don't let them go into a dangerous situation alone and you sure as hell don't wait almost 24 hours to find out if they are OK.

Lets clear this up long throater. I didnt know where Angela and Randy lived so that wouldn't have helped anyway and second Randy was always armed and drunk. You in your infinite wisdom would drive around for hours looking for a drunk who is armed and ask him how is your wife doing when he thinks you have been sleeping with her. Yeah I would say you are a dumb a$$. Not to mention he has threatend to hunt me down since the day I first met Angela. I would love to have him in a room by himself without his pistol, then we wouldn't need a trial but, as far as that goes I dont think that is ever going to happen. If you even knew Angela at all you know she does what she wants when she wants and not much is going to get in her way except for maybe someone holding her at gun point and killing her like Randy did. So look here long throater W/Ripples get back in your single wide and finish off your case of pabst blue ribbon get ya some chew and jack off to your porn mags and go to bed.

If Angela wanted him out of her life so much, then why didn't she go.... There's no excuse for remaining in an abusive relationship at all.

She could've taken measures necessary to ensure her safety, rather than as a married woman turning to someone else (like a friend whom she spends the night with, but isn't his "lover".) Give me a break.

The bottom line here is that there is a loss suffered by both sides. All in all, it's a terrible situation. No good can come from this, other than maybe using it as a tool to teach children and those younger of what you should do in an abusive relationship such as this....whom to avoid, what measures to take, and not to fall in the hands (or arms, rather) of a bottom feeder out to take advantage of someone on the re-bound.

I'm just glad I don't have to decide anyone's fate on this matter.

Whew!!! Gosh!!! Doesn't take much to set you off and see your true personality Mr. Di Tripanies in a wad. Thank you for putting it into writing in a public place.

After reading that last comment, I am left to wonder if the world might be a safer place if you were locked up along side Randy.

Speaking of being locked up, now where was it that you and Angela met in the first place? Oh well, I guess all of that will come out in court as you guys like to say.
