No way. I know the real story. I know what actually happened. David KILLED Erika! And then killed himself. Suicide is a sin that cannot be forgiven. And murder? No way. I'm very sorry to say that David won't be resting in peace.

WE KNEW ERIKA AND DAVID BOTH. ERIKA WAS A VERY CLOSE FAMILY FRIEND OF OURS AND MY SON WAS IN LOVE HER. SHE USED TO BABY SIT FOR US AND TAKE MY SON OUT TO FRIENDLY'S ON "DATES", SHE WAS A BEAUTIFUL PERSON INSIDE AND OUT. DAVE FROM THE SECOND I MET HIM, I KNEW HE WAS A DRUG ADDICTED, ABUSIVE PERSON, CONTROL FREAK! MAY HER ROT IN HELL FOR WHAT HE DID TO OUR BEST FRIEND. SHE HAD A LOT GOING FOR HER. NOT ONLY WAS SHE OUR BEST FRIEND BUT SHE WAS OUR CO WORKER, WE WATCHED HER STRUGGLE IN SCHOOL AND WITH BOYFRIEND. WE WATCHED HER LOVING SISTERS HELP HER TRY AND TURN HER LIFE AROUND AND THINGS WERE GOING GOOD FOR HER. THIS WAS NOT A SUICIDE ON ERIKA PART IT WAS A MURDER ON DAVES PART. MAY HIS SOUL STAY IN HELL FOREVER AND EVER AND MAY ERIKA REST IN PEACE FOREVER AND EVER SO WE CAN SEE HER AGAIN AND BE PART OF HER LIFE SOME DAY. R.I.P ERIKA. ROT IN HELL DAVE.
WE LOVE YOU ERIKA, LOVE, KELLY, RICK, JAY, AND SAMANTHA HILDERBRANDT AND OUR FERRET SAMMY JAY THAT YOU HELPED US PICK OUT.

YES, DAVID IS A MURDERER, DRUG ADDICTED, CONTROL FREAK WHO WAS POPPING VICADIN AND METADONE ALONG WITH MANY OTHER DRUGS. ERIKA COULDN'T BE FREE UNTIL SHE WAS DEAD BECAUSE HE DID NOTHING BUT FOLLOW HER EVERWHERE SHE WENT. HE ISN'T RESTING IN PEACE. HE IS ROTTING IN HELL, THANK THE LORD BECAUSE HE KILLED MY BEST FRIEND. HE IS ROTTING IN SIN AND MY BEST FRIEND IS RESTING IN HEAVEN FREE FROM THAT FREAK. KELLY HILDERBRANDT

YOU GO GIRLFRIEND, I KNOW WHO YOU ARE, ERIKA AND I WERE VERY CLOSE AND I KNOW DAVE KILLED HER, I KNOW WHAT A DRUG ADDICTED, PILL POPPING, CONTROL FREAK, AND ABUSIVE MAN, FORCED HER TO DO THINGS SHE DIDN'T WANT TO, FOLLOWED HER ALL OVER THE PLACE. THE DAY I MET HIM I HAD TO ASK HIM TO LEAVE BECAUSE HE WAS HIGH AS A KITE AND I HAVE TWO CHILDREN I DIDN'T WANT HIM AROUND THEM. HE WAS SICK IN THE HEAD AND SHE WOULD NEVER KILL HERSELF, SHE JUST GOT HER APARTMENT, STRUGGLED THROUGH SCHOOL, GOT INTO A GOOD SCHOOL, WAS SCARED TO DEATH OF DAVE, HAD TO CALL MY HUSBAND BECAUSE SHE WAS AFRAID TO GO TO GET HER STUFF...HE SAID TO MY US THAT SHE WASN'T GOING ANYWHERE, HE WOULD KILL HER FIRST! I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL WHEN I FOUND OUT, I MISSED HER WAKE BECAUSE I WAS HAVING SURGERY, I FEEL HORRIBLE. HIS STUPID MOTHER IS IN DENIAL BUT HIS STEP MOTHER AND HIS FATHER KNOW BECAUSE THEY WARNED HER, HE HAD ORDERS OF PROTECTION OUT AGAINST X GIRLFRIENDS, I JUST MET A FRIEND OF HIS THAT SAYS HE WAS A NUT CASE. THESE ASSHOLES THAT ARE IN DENIAL ABOUT DAVE, NEED TO WAKE UP BECAUSE THIS BEAUTIFUL SOLE LEFT BEHIND TWO BEAUTIFUL NEPHEWS THAT SHE LOVED AND THEN ONE THAT WAS HER NAMESAKE THAT SHE NEVER GOT TO MEET AND HER SISTERS THAT SHE LOVED VERY MUCH AND HER MOM THAT SHE WORRIED ABOUT SO MUCH AND HER FRIENDS LIKE YOU AND ME AND SO FORTH AND I HOPE HE IS ROTTING IN HELL FOR WHAT HE DID!!!! GOT BLESS ERIKA'S SOLE, TIL WE MEET AGAIN.

DAVE KNOWS THE TRUTH, HE KILLED ERIKA BECAUSE HIS SORRY ASS COULDN'T LIVE WITHOUT HER. HE IS A POOR EXCUSE FOR A MAN OR SHALL I SAY A HUMAN BEING, BUT HE IS BURNING EVERY DAY FOR HIS SIN. ERIKA IS SPREADING HER WINGS FREE AS A BUTTERFLY. SCREW DAVE AND HIS ENTIRE FAMILY THAT BELIEVES THAT HE DID NOTHING WRONG...I HAVE IT ALL ON TAPE ON HOW HE WILL KILL HE HE CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT HER.

I Work With Her Sister And I Was There When She Found Out. She Was Devastated And Still Is Grieving And Finding It Hard To Cope Without Her Little Sister. You Can Be Sure Her Murderer Is Burning In Hell And Erika Should Not Even Be Resting, She Should Be Alive And Spoiling Her New Nephew, Little Erik Whom She Never Even Got To Meet......
