And Caytie should have a capitol C like all of the other names mentioned. And did I mention, that Holly was convicted and is on probation for smuggling the drugs to her son?? And did I mention that the drugs that he was selling came from HIS own MOTHER???? MOM of the YEAR---Holly Palmer.

And how has Gayle made their life a living hell? She didn't cause any of this to happen. It's not her fault they get in the news. And as far as I can see, she hasn't posted on this since June 2010. Who is the one looking for attention??? Holly has a living son. Gayle doesn't have a living daughter. Who's life is a living hell???

I saw the face of evil today. I saw Dante Silva. Four years ago, his mother wanted to know why they weren't going after the big dealer in Caitlyn's death. She wanted to know why they were going after the "little man" first. Today was their chance to go after the "big dealer" and Dante refused to testify against him. He looked so evil. He looked like the devil himself. He was so cocky too. He refused to come to the jail so the judge told them to force him over. Once there, he acted like he couldn't wait to get back to the prison. I most certainly will make it my mission that he stays there. Never have I felt such hatred for someone. He had his chance to show some kind of feeling towards what happened to Caitlyn and he blew it. Little does he know that if he just showed some kind of compassion towards what happened to Caitlyn, I would have been his biggest advocate. So I will be there when he comes up for parole. I do think it will be longer than the 10 year minimum because of his behavior in prison. I am glad though that all this is over. They will deport Sanchez hopefully. I know he will get back to this country but at least now they will have him on their radar. I won't have to relive what happened to Cayte. Thank God for that because I was not looking forward to that. Now if everyone can stop commenting. This case is over. Thank you, dante is a coward, for your words.

To the people bad mouthing Dante as if this poor young girls death was purely his fault, due to the fact that he made some seriously bad decisions.... I have known dante for quite some time. Since high school to be exact. Back then he was nothing more nor less then a child with poor guidance from his mother who was a better friend then she was a mother. She was a great woman from what I saw going there fairly often to go clamming off the dock in their backyard on long island. The biggest problem I personally saw for this poor child was that he was doomed for the meer fact that he never had any real guidance. At the age of 15 you could tell he was not as mature or developed enough to have good decision making skills. Now add in a nasty addiction to heroin and what little decision making skills he did have are out the window. I personally am a recovering addict from this horrible drug myself. And when I look back at some of the horrible decisions I made I am purely disgusted with myself. For two of the last three years I have been clean I made it a point to show addicts there is hope. Over the last ten years that I have been involved with this drug I have met some of the best people on earth who are merely set in on cruise control by a drug that shows absolutley no mercy to anyone it comes in contact with. I used to be a heroin dealer. Not for the money, to support my own 10-13 bundle a day habit. I got arrested and did my time. Now in that time I was asked to show mercy to the people who's lives I ruined with the drugs I sold by giving up "the bigger fish" I too turned it down. Not because I was a coward, but bc I didn't and still dint feel bc I became an addict I deserved to be labeled as a "snitch or a rat" in a place where that label alone could cost you your life. I was scared everyday I was in there. You never know what could happen. Also have you people ever took into consideration that maybe Dante sold drugs and asked his mom to bring him drugs bc maybe there was a bigger much harder person in there who gave him an offer he couldn't refuse? I can't tell you how many people I met in prison that sold drugs just because the chance of an extended prison sentence sounded a lot more appealing then the beatings, torturing, and possible raping that would come if he said no. Dante was always guilty of doing whatever it took to fit in. And I will never blame him for joining a gang and doing whatever they wanted from him if that's what's gunna make his life a little bit smoother. He is in a place where the motto to keep you alive is "leave your feelings at the gate, emotions will only get you killed" where the only time its ok to cry and show remorse for whatever you did is when you go home and retrieve your property and hope your feelings didn't get thrown in the trash with everything else you believed in before this nightmare started. You are all so quick to not care about the time these prisoners are doing. When half have probably never felt half the depression, worthlessness, and fear that inmates go through on a day to day basis. Do I feel Dante needed a sentence to prison to wake him up and get him the help he truely needs? Absolutely. 100% but not 10 years and damn sure not 10-life. Maybe 1-3 with mandatory counseling both inside and out. There is absolutley no rehabilitation going on in these prisons. They are run on fear and even worse criminals with access to rediculous amounts of power. You all may as well be typing rip Dante and Cayte. Because the day he walked in that prison Dante became nothing more then a number.

Thanks you Neutral Party for you comments. Praying tonight that your comments will strike a cord with the right people in Concord, so that some changes can be made. Also, praying for healing and hope for the Brady family so that they can go on with their lives as we are struggling to go on with ours too. It has been a long hard time for all involved, and I know the pain has been unbearable at times. I am putting my faith in God to somehow help us all get through this..

Im a old friend of dantes . I knew him when we were 15 or so. We used to hang out at his house where I met his mother who was always concerned with what we were doing and how things were going. I would have never thought I would be hearing these things about either of them. Im really sorry to hear about the death of this young girl. As far as heroin ive seen friends use it sell it overdose on it and do things that I yjought they never would have to get it. The drug is horrible.. and quite honestly this could have happened to anyone . Ive seen friends from perfect homes get addicted to this drug and their families go through hell to see their son\daughter get clean. I dont know all the facts and im no expert but I dont think dante should be so harshly punished whether I know him or not .

At least you could see him if you choose to. Cayte's mom can never see her daughter again! He may not be a murderer but he was and is a coward for leaving her to die! Which basically is murdering her come to think about it!
