This monster should be executed immediately for what he did to this innocent child - his own brother!!! He raped Vincent on a regular basis, stabbed, beat and strangled him to death, dumped his poor, naked, battered body in a water car at a construction site and left him there. If all that is not horrific enough the family knew all along this piece of garbage was responsible and protected him!!!! He should be dealt the same fate he dealt Vincent. All of the family members that stayed silent should be prosecuted as well. I hope they rot in hell. Finally, after 34 years Vincent might get justice. Trisha Sheppard, NY

Don't believe the hype. The media does not have correct facts. The family does not discuss the fact that Joe Joe did this, as they are aware of where he was and what he was doing at the time of the murder. The elder brother did not kill his little brother; there but for the grace of God his alibi will prove his innocence. They are also aware of where Mikey was, which was not witnessing anything, but maybe the sandman.
Secondly, the murdered boy was not found naked, if the reporters did their homework they would know he was clad. They are apparently hyping the lies they are getting from Mikey. However, have they checked out his past string of lies and false accusations against several innocent people.
As far as Mikey, pleading with the relative to come forward with the truth... The truth is he is threatening them and their families to confirm his lie.
DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE!

I can't believe any family would keep something like this a secret. Yes, the brother is finally speaking out about this, but he also kept this secret. I understand he was very young at the time, but still. To wait this long?? It sickens me that I did my laundry daily, near where these people live. It's not enough we have registered sex offenders here, but now we have killers too. Disgusting!! I can't wait to move.

Actually, Michael didn't wait " this long " to come forward with what he claims to have witnessed in April of 72'. He first came forward in 1988 , which would have made him the young age of 19. The case had even gone to Grand Jury in Hackensack , where family members were questioned . The case had then been suddenly dropped , more than likely , because of lack of evidence . It is sad to think that not only did Michael try to do the right thing and put closure to his brothers death all those years ago, but has had to live with this and a family full of denial and resentment for 18 long years !!!

A lot of people who say they know this family personally are giving me different answers and/or opinions. Some say none of this is true and others say the whole family is screwed-up! Who knows anything for sure, but the two "actual" brothers in question here. I checked up on it out of curiosity, but I have mixed feelings about all of this now. Thanks for your input!
