I am Blase Wright's mother. Blase was shot and killed in his apartment in the middle of the afternoon on Feb 2nd of this year. The police released a sketch of a woman that was sitting in a car outside of the apartment believed to know more details about this murder. Blase had a so-called friend (DJ) staying with him, he conveniently stays out of town (Bandera). Why isn't anybody coming forward? Blase knew alot of people and was well liked by many. But yet, nobody comes forward and says anything. I know there are a few of those kids that really knows what happened and I wish that they would find the courage to call the detectives in Universal City or they can email me on the myspace. The people that are responsible for this will be caught, it's just a matter of time. So, whether you're involved or you just know something, come forward, be Blase's hero and say something.

They know where DJ is...He has also been arrested for burglary... he was bailed and I think we're waiting to see if gets indicted for it. It justs really frustrates me that my son gave this guy a place to live when he had no other place, my son fed him and drove him around as well. This guy calls himself Blase's friend but yet does nothing to help. He tries to convince us that he knows nothing. I don't believe it! We have caught him in too many lies. He was the last one to talk to Blase and the first to find him. I know that he knows something. I just don't know how to persuade to talk.

Blase was my only son and I love him so much! My heart aches for him! I can't even express into words how much I miss him! Who ever is lying about knowing anything, whoever is involved...there will be no mercy! So, if someone knows something, you are better off coming forward and clearing your conscience. This is the only way for any mercy on you.

The news media reports that the war is in Iraq but I say it is right here in our own backyard.
The law enforcment needs our help to report to them what we see and hear of the ones that want to do harm and take of other people. My grandson was murdered in his apartment by a evil person. I firmly believe someone, especially the one that BJ(Blase Wright Jr.)befriended knows something. Yes, it takes inner strengh to step up and speak. The killer will be bought to justice! The police will get this person or persons involed. The person that did this is a coward that does not respect life and needs to be taken off the streets before they do this again.

BJ's murder case is still on going and his family and friends miss him so much. The law will get this person or persons that murdered BJ. Everynight in the news I hear about another child or someone elses loved one being murdered. None of it makes any sense. What makes these people think they have the right to murder someone?

Today is February 12, 2008, a little over a year since BJ was shot in his apartment. Since then, the guy that stayed with him, David Joshua Doutrich (DJ), has retreated in Bandera and now is going to school in Alpine, TX. We all know that DJ knows the truth about what transpired that day and leading up to that day. We all believe that DJ is scared, probably for his life, to tell us the truth. DJ, announces on his myspace page that my son, Blase(BJ), is a man amongst boys. He claims to be his good friend. My son gave him a place to live when he had nowhere to go....but now...what does do? NOTHING! If his silence continues, I will make sure that a charge for witholding evidence from this case will be against him and he will fight not only the burglary charges but that one, as well! My patience is running out!

what does it take to get someone that has information to tell what they know? the person that killed BJ continues to live his life. this person will be caught. it is a matter of when. all of you out there, that refuse to tell the police what you are no better than the one that pulled the trigger. you say your BJ'S friend, that is not a friend. i hope your parents don't have to go through this or anyother member of your family. i would not wish this on anyone. CRIME STOPPERS STILL OFFERING $5OOO.OO REWARD FOR INFORMATION. BJ did not deserve this done. the person that did this is a coward and everyone connected to this person is no better. a person that kills in coldblood has no feelings and they don't care about anybody. these kind of people go around living a lie. why would you want to be around someone like? why would you want to protect them. believe me they would not protect you and would turn on you in a flash. think about it!!!!

Approaching 3 years; I wonder...what is it like to live knowing that you have all the answers that would give a family a little bit of peace and some closure but yet withhold it from them. Is it difficult to be that selfish; thinking you can live your life in full while BJ (Blase) cannot?

I am asking, no...I'm pleading with you, please say what you know. We need to get this guy off the street. He will hurt others. How many families have to feel this way? You can put an end to it. You can save another and their family.

Crime stoppers can be notified anytime about this case. Or, you can email me - dhastings@satx.rr.com

WE HAVE RIGHTS IN THIS COUNTRY. IF HE DOESN'T WANT TO TALK THAT IS HIS BUSINESS NOT YOURS. QUIT HARASSING HIM AND MIND YOUR BUSINESS. DJ WA PROBABLY UP TO NO GOOD ANYWAY. THERE IS NO TELLING WHAT HE WAS INVOLVED IN. THERE MUST HAVE BEEN A REASON HE GOT SHOT. DID THEY FIND DRUGS OR ALCOHOL WHEN THE CARVED HIM UP DURING THE ATOSPY?

if you have horrible things to say to people who have lost someone then you really should just keep your mouth shut. nobody wants to hear it. his name wasn't even dj so learn how to read. DJ was the guy who the murderer was likely after so keep your ignorant asshole comments out of here. Its not his any witnesses business, its societies business because the killer probably will kill someone else. Nobodys harassing anybody except you. His mother was just asking other human beings to be HUMAN and have a conscience, something you clearly lack. You need to stay out of this forum.

its amazing how few people are true friends. how many people have enough self esteem or respect to stand up and say, you know what, my friend or not, you did wrong and you need to pay. why is it so hard to be a leader and do something instead of standing back in the crowd with tape over your mouth. i have come to realize even friends who are resenting the things they have done or with-held, friends that are dying slowly inside because they cant step foward and say "i know, I'm the bigger person, the truth needs to come out, i know" will die before they ever let peace come to the family and true friends of BJ. It is absolultely heart wrenching.

This was shown 8 times today and is expected to be on the 10pm newscast as well. Also, a family member received another request from another station for an interview. It's all coming together - this is our year.

Three years has gone by now, what a shame it has been this long. The woman in the sketch, no one has reconized her or has said "it looks like such and such a person". The gun has been used in another crime. How many more people have to be killed. The next killing could be your son, daughter, brother, sister or some family member, even a friend. Then it will be to late to speak up. This person has to be taken off the street, they will kill again.DON'T LET IT BE YOU, FAMILY OR FRIEND!!!! I would not want to see or hear of another parent, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters or any family member to feel and go through this loss. Please if you know of anything, no matter how slight step up and do the right thing, call crime stoppers. Get this person off the street, this person will kill again and keeping quite does not protect you. Just remember, this killer might think the way to keep you quite, is to KILL YOU.

He may not have done the act, but he has the information that could close the case.
