Sickening! This story turns my stomach. How people can hold no value whatsoever for somebody else's life. That is a low-life, scumbag piece of crap drug dealer for you!!! If they would have taken the girl to the hospital for treatment instead of dicking around and letting her die, it is possible she would still be alive. I honestly hope somebody is found responsible and is slapped with a murder charge.

What a horrible..horrible filth..scumbag. What an animal. For Ms.Daly's family to have to hear and see all of this is beyond sad..so wrong...so NOT Necessary. Why? Why? Of course there is no answer. This animal should be convicted of murder...Involuntary? Bull. I am a friend of her mother. My heart bleeds for this senseless death of her angel...total disregard for a beautiful life that had just begun.I am sick for her family and wish this man a life of HELL on earth.

as much as you want to hate the drug dealer, this death is the girls own fault. she was obviously a hardcore drug user, 13 pills of ecstacy is not even close to the amount a first timer takes. she was in the house of a hardcore drug dealer, meaning she knew that if she was going to OD, she isnt going to get much help, hardcore drug dealers are always out for themselves only, most people realize this. it is her fault. she was not forced to take the ecstacy or morphene. it was her choice.

most people OD on E after 8 pills and it was her choice.sometimes people die because of their mistakes. Thats what happens when your stupid and on hardcore drugs.The people around her should of at least called for help or something.It's always sad to lose a loved one.

There is nothing 'obvious' here at all, the fact of the matter is she is not a drug user/abuser...

my question will always be how and why.

don't make such assumptions- you don't know Miranda, otherwise you would not make a comment like that, unless you must be related somehow to girvan or macias

I am disheartened as a person - let alone her mother, to know that there is this kind of heart still out there without compassion.

It was her fault if she made the decision to eat so many pills but the man should be punished for denying her any help.

IF ANY OF YOU REALLY KNEW MY COUSIN YOU WOULD RETHINK WHAT COMMENTS YOU WISH TO LEAVE FOR THIS WONDERFUL WOMAN THAT JUST LOST THE MOST REMARKABLE CHILD. I KNOW FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE HOW THE DRUG WORLD WORKS, THANK GOD & MIRANDA THAT I AM NOT INVOLVED IN THAT DISCUSTING LIFE OF DRUGS. SHE WAS ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE THAT KNEW BETTER, SHE ALWAYS HAD A OPEN HEART TO THE LESS FORTUNET PEOPLE THAT COULD NOT FIND A WAY OUT OF THEIR MISSOURI. SHE WAS THERE FOR ME & WOULD BE THERE FOR ANYONE THAT NEEDED HER. I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT MIR WOULD NOT HAVE TAKEN ALL THOSE DRUGS, SHE WOULDN'T PUT HERSELF IN THE HANDS OF A DRUG USER TO MAKE SURE SHE WAS ALRIGHT IF SHE TRIED SOME, SHE WAS SO MUCH SMARTER THAN THAT, MY COUSIN MIRANDA BEING HER OPENHEARTEDSELF, WILLING TO SAVE ANYONE, ALREADY KNEW HE WAS NO GOOD! HE KNEW SHE COULD SEE RIGHT THREW HIM, FRIGHTENED SHE'D LEAVE HIM, I BELIEVE WITH OUT A DOUGHT HE DRUGGED HER KNOWING THAT WAS THE ONLY WAY SHE WOULDN'T SUSPECT ANYTHING, SHE WASN'T A STUPID DRUG ADDICT, SHE NEVER WAS, IT WAS NEVER EVEN IN HER LIFE BEFORE THIS DEVIL. I KNOW FROM OTHERS I HAVE MET DOWN THE PATH I WAS TAKING, THAT EVEN THE HARDEST DRUG USER IN THE WORLD WOULDN'T TAKE ALL SHE HAD IN HER SYSTEM...THERE'S NO POSSIBLE WAY THIS WAS HER FAULT. LIKE I SAID & IM GOING TO SAY IT AGAIN, SHE WAS SO MUCH SMARTER THEN HOW YOU ALL WISH TO SPEAK OF HER. REMEMBER THIS WHEN SOMEDAY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS IN SIN, I PRAY THAT YOU SHALL NOT BE PUT THREW THIS IN YOUR DARKEST DAYS, & THAT YOUR FAMILY DOES NOT HAVE TO FEEL THIS PAIN & HAVE SOMEBODY TELL YOU THAT YOUR DAUGHTER IS AT FAULT. HER HEART IS ALREADY PIERCED AS DEEP AS IT CAN BE, HOW DARE YOU!!! GOD BLESS MY COUSIN, FOR SHE IS IN HEAVEN & THERE WILL BE JUSTICE FOR HER DEATH.

I WANT TO GET ONE THING CLEAR ON THE RECORD: MY STEP MOTHER SHEILA GOD REST HER SOUL WAS ON MANY DIFFERENT MEDICATIONS FOR HER MEDICAL PROBLEMS DUE TO BEING MANIC DEPRESSENT/BIPOLAR AND WAS IN SO MUCH PAIN EVERYDAY DUE TO AN AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT. SHE ONLY WOULD CONSUME 2 MORPHINE PILLS AND THAT WAS ENOUGH TO PUT HER TO BED. THIS WOMAN LET ME REMIND YOU, SHE HAD BEEN TAKING THIS FOR 20 OR SO YEARS, SO TELL ME HOW & WHY MY COUSIN WITH NO REAL MEDICAL PROBLEMS WOULD EVEN TAKE 1 LET ALONE 10? MY MOTHER WAS IN MAJOR PAIN EVERYDAY SHE NEVER EVEN WOULD THINK TO TAKE THAT MANY KNOWING WHAT THE RESULTS WOULD BE (DEATH) THIS WOMAN WOULD AND DID WELCOME DEATH BUT WOULD NEVER TAKE HER OWN LIFE. MIRANDA DID NOT DO THIS TO HERSELF, SHE WOULDN'T EVEN HAVE ANY NEED OR DESIRE TO TAKE MORPHINE. 13 PILLS OF EX...NEVER! SHE WOULD NEVER HAVE HAD ANY NEED FOR THOSE TYPES OF DRUGS THAT'S WHAT IS SO OVIOUS. SHE WAS A HEALTH FOOD ADDICT IF ANY TYPE OF ADDICT, TELL ME HOW SOME ONE WHO IS HEALTH CONCIOUS WOULD PUT SO MUCH POISON IN HER SYSTEM? PLEASE TAKE IN TO CONSIDERATION WHAT I AM TELLING YOU, TO WHOME IT MAY CONCERN: PLEASE DON'T GIVE UP ON THIS CASE, IF THERE IS ENOUGH TIME WE WILL MAKE SURE YOU KNOW MIRANDA BEFORE YOU JUDGE HER DEATH, SHE WILL NEVER BE COMING BACK BUT SHE KNOWS WE ARE HERE TO PROVE HER INNOCENCE.

I have been around drug use all my life even thou I have never been a drug user but you cat tell miranda was not a reg drug user. Just look at her. For those of you that have negitive words why don't you look at your own life. There Must Be Justice For Miranda.

Deb, this is Kristen....Just wanted to let you know that I was the one who posted the comment with my name showing Supporting Miranda....I wanted to type Kristen Always and Forever Supporting Miranda, but the darn thing would only let me use 25 charachters for my name...Anyhow, don't let these jerks here get you down. Once again, you have so many supporters vs. jerks out here...we will continue to support you NO MATTER WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY....They don't know her and obviously have a hard time comprehending what they read....and they want to call her stupid....THEY ARE THE STUPID ONE'S BY FAR!!!!

Love you Always ~

It is so hard for me to read what these people write when i know Miranda and i know she would NEVER have taken those drugs and especially in that amount. The hard part is that no one knows what Miranda had to go through prior to the three witnesses showing up to her unconscious body, I KNOW HE DRUGGED HER OR FORCED HER!! I just hope and pray every day that justice is served for her, she deserves it more than anything and i dont understand why some people cant see that!! I LOVE YOU MIRANDA...RIP!!
LOVE YOU ALWAYS, NESS

Okay...first of all. I'm not proud but yes...I used to hang out with Girvan. I was a DRUG USER, and had no idea what he was capable at the time. Had I known...I wouldnt have hung out with him EVER! Therefore...assuming that she was a HUGE DRUG USER or deserving of her death because SHE KNEW HE WAS A DRUG DEALER...is purely ignorant! I'm sure MANY of his friends were surprised by his actions. If she had known what a horrible person he was, instead of trying to see the good in people then yes, perhaps she wouldnt have been around him...but she obviously didnt know! You have no right to judge. I too gave Girvan the benefit of the doubt and was left in an apartment with two guys trying to get with me that i didnt know and I was on ecstacy for the first time. Freaked outta my mind...(had my other friend not been there)...who knows what woulda happened. Miranda wasnt as lucky as i was...

I am so glad her cousin set the record straight ! I didn't know Miranda but, this is a tragedy. How shallow people can be, and so QUICK to judge. If this was a person they loved, the would NOT be so rude. Just makes me sick people are this harsh. My heart goes out to the family.:)

This is for the people that talk when they should not talk. Miranda Daly was not a drug user she was although a person who thought she could change bad people to good people. She thought for some ungodly reason she could change this mans life to a better life was one of the many qualities of this now angel in heaven. She died because he spiked her drink or whatever. She did not do drugs never did never has. Get it you vain people that can go here and say the awfull things you have with never ever knowing this wonderful person now in heaven. Think twice about the circumtances you die from 1 or 2 pills no one needs 12 13 14 or whatever he gave her to keep her from changing his sorry life. Well guess what that man will pay no matter what the negative people have to say and the negative people better think twice about what they say before they say it.

If you use hard drugs you will probably die. This girl had some serious problems and her family must TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR HER ACTIONS. It is sad but her family should have intervened!

Why is the family of the girl blaming everyone else? The girl chose to use drugs and she paid a price.

The family must feel guilty for not helping the girl. They are blaming everyone but the girl. She made horrible choices in her life and paid the ultimate price. Very sad, and goes to show what drugs can do to a person.

This is the most RETARDED THING THAT IVE EVER HEARD!!!!! He wouldnt let ANYONE take her to the hospital and wouldnt let call 911! He WANTED her to die and watched her for hours...slowly turn blue until she finally died HOURS later!!! Then waited HOURS AND HOURS to call the police and tell them she was dead! God forbid this happen to someone in ur family coz if it did i'm sure you'd be cryin out a different story than that ignorant SH*T!
