I have been in law enforcement for 32 years and currently am a member of the Colorado Attorney general's Capital Crimes Unit - which assists the 22 DA's around the state on potential capital murder cases. I will be long retired before the six inmates, who's cases I've worked on over the past 7 1/2 years, will be executed. Why? Because of the lengthy appeals process and the amount of money allowed to be spent by our courts. "Justice is doing the right thing, for the right reason, the right way."

I would just like to let you know that the story shocked me when I first read it. I would like to express my deepest sympathies to you. I am writing a research paper on the death penalty and I would like to say that I feel that it is deserving in this case for the murderers, who were obviously immoral and dangerous. Again, I would like to say I'm sorry for your loss, and I pray that you will be able to move on, and move past the grief, while still loving your daughters.

I am so very sorry about what happened to your daughters. I have no idea of what you may feel or how it feels to be in your situation. I wish there was something I could do to bring them back, and make the killers suffer. I'm only 17 years old, and I can't imagine the pain your daughters have been through. All I can say is that I am sorry and I hope god is blessing them in heaven. STAY STRONG. and may god bless all of u.

I know that my words may not console your pain or erase all the suffering you have endured but I just want to send out my deepest sympathy for both Elizabeth's and Jenny's family. I can not imagine the sadness this change has brought as for the men who are responsible for the change remember this "Of all judgments we pass in life, none is more important than the judgment we face in the hands of God"

I am a student writing an essay on the death penalty. I am almost sorry that I decided on this topic, because when I read the story of your girls, I knew I would lay awake nights thinking about them. May God bless you and grant you peace. I always was pro-death penalty, but was wavering due to all the hoopla in Illinois. One half-hour on this web page changed my wavering to back to firm resolve. I will keep you in my prayers.

In junior high and in the beginning of high school I was very close friends with Elizabeth Pena. From the summer between my freshman and sophomore year of high school when this tragedy happened I have thought about her and her friend at least once a day and our memories as friends will never be forgotten! For you guys who had the chance to know Elizabeth know that she was a very interesting and unique individual. There will never be another like her! I am glad that I had the opportunity to know elizabeth during her life with us.

On coming to this site to find research for a school project, I was actually anti-death, believing death to be an escape rather than a punishment and that criminals should be made to suffer for their crimes. However, on reading your story involving girls similar to my age, I can see how important it must be to find justice for their deaths. Obviously, nothing can ever make up for their loss, but knowing that their killers are literally going to vanish from the earth must be really important. Although this will mean nothing, I would just like to offer my sincere condolences and hope you can find what little comfort from them that is possible to gain. And also, thank you for raising my awareness... there are terrible, evil people out there and vulnerable girls my age need all the guidance they can get for remaining safe. Thank you.

I don't know if the families ever read these messages, but if you do.... I went to Seton Jr. High with Elizabeth. We were not close friends, but friendly enough in the way junior high kids are. I can remember having conversations about how boring certain teachers were, about upcoming dances. I still have a picture she gave me of herself in 7th or 8th grade -- the little wallet-size kind that everyone loves to exchange in junior high. I mostly remember her always laughing, full of life. Like alot of Seton kids, I went on to St. Pius where Elizabeth went for her 9th grade year and have always thought it wrong that SPX didn't do anything to memorialize her memory and the presence she had been there, even if she was no longer a student. I was glad to read that her friends at Waltrip had done so. I haven't lived in Houston for a long time (I live in New York City now), but I still remember. I just wanted you to know that your daughter is not forgotten, even by one who only knew her a little. I pray for your families and light candles at mass in memory. May Christ's peace fill all who were scarred by this tragedy.

I just wanted to say that I miss both of you. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about you two. The times we shared together are so much a cherished part of my life. Every June and August when your birthdays come around, you guys are so much in my mind. I'm glad that you have not been forgotten. It's been a while since I've been back to Houston, but you girls can believe that you are a part of me. I think about Randy and Sandy and how they are doing. I think about the tree we planted for you two in front of Waltrip. Going even farther, I remember sitting in science, Ms. Smith's class, with the both of you. I think about the times we had at Silvercreek. I think about that night when you two were taken from us. When you two walked by me, never did I think it would be the last time that I would see you. I can sit and ask myself 'what if', but we'll never know. It touches me too see so many responses from people who never got the chance to know you girls. I say to them that they missed out on two very special girls. Jennifer and Elizabeth you are forever in my heart. Love ya. -ANTZ-

I am 47 yr old college student w/ 4 children. I am truly sorry for your loss. I am doing a research paper on the death penalty and the pros and cons of it. After learning of your loss, I am more inclined to lean towards the death penalty after being opposed to it for years. I do feel your loss. Sorry.

I came across your website quite by chance and having read of the events surrounding the murder of those two girls then those who did it deserved all that was coming to them. We do not have the death penalty here in the UK but there are times when i wish that we did. We too have our notable killers such as myra hindley and her lover ian brady ( child killers ) Fred and Rose West,( Murdered young girls including their own daughter and buried the bodies within their own house 16 young lives snuffed out for nothing.) Finally, Dr Harold Shipman (A medical doctor who was convicted of killing 16 of his elderly patients by giving them lethal doses of Diamorphine a powerful pain killer. That said, although he was convicted of killing 16 of his patients, he is believed to have actually murdered around 200 people. Why should people like them who inflict so much pain and suffering continue to draw breath when those whom they murdered will no longer be able to do so. I too have a 3 year old daughter and another one due any time now and i just cannot imagine the hell the families must have gone through if my children were victims then i too would demand the same thing for their killers. My love and sympathies to you all. John.

I am doing a debate on The Death Penalty for school, I am for the Death penalty. Through my research I came across this website where I found this horrific story of these two beautiful young girls and it broke my heart. I have chosen to tell my fellow classmates about Jenny and Elizabeth's story in hopes that I can change at least one person's mind that the death penalty indeed should not be abolished. I want to thank you for sharing your story and my heart goes out to you and your family. You are in my prayers

I am only 15, but i wanted to let you know that your family and you are in my prayers, I know how your daughters must have felt when they was getting raped, because i got raped when i was 4 years old by my half brother and he almost killed me, luckily my dad came in right at the time when he was about to strangle me to death, i have not been the sane since, but they are in heaven now, and the good lord will take care of them, i'm praying for you.

As the father of two girls I can only say my prayers go out to the families of both the girls. It saddens me to think we have people among us that are capable of such crimes. May their killers be punished to the fullest extent of the law. May the girls souls rest in peace.

It is amazing that this kind of violence goes on in this day and age. My prayers go out to the families of Jenny and Elizabeth and may their killers be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

I am terribly sorry for your loss. I am a student at Cal State Long Beach and I have been assigned to write an argumentative essay and I decided to write against the death penalty, but now I have changed my mind. I have always had a hard time deciding if the death penalty is a justified punishment for murders, until now. After reading about these two girls I was overcome with sadness. I started crying when I read about the horrible things that those boys did. I was assaulted about a year ago, nothing as serious as these girls were, but nevertheless I was extremely frightened so I can only imagine the fear that they must have felt. Thank You for changing my views, I will always think of Elizabeth and Jennifer when I argue for the death penalty.

I lived in Houston from 1992 to 1999, before returning to Minnesota. This crime still comes to mind. I met Randy Ertman, on a motorcycle ride organized by The Parents of Murdered Children. He was amazingly calm that day, although I would suspect the pain is still there, years later. God bless the Pena and Ertman families, and know that their beautiful daughters are in a safe place.

To the families of Jennifer Ertman & Elizabeth Pena. I can't imagine the grief your families must be enduring with the loss of your loved ones. I am studying criminal justice working to become an attorney. After viewing this case and story it just touches me, and makes me realize why i choose this field. I send my condolence to both families, for the loss of the loved ones. This story and many like it is the reason when i become an attorney i will promise families like yours that within every bit of power i have in me i will see to it that these kinds of criminals remain incarcerated and never gets a chance to be free again. As your loved ones freedom has been taken so shall theirs. This kind of crime i am studying deeply in law school right now. I have discovered this story and will use it on a project i am doing for school. Again my condolence goes out to your families and hope that these criminals never see daylight ever from the outside of the walls.

I am so sorry to learn of your loss. Although it has been many years since you lost your precious girls I am sure the pain has yet to diminish. As a mother with a daughter I couldn't imagine how I would survive if my daughter was hurt like yours were. I am a criminal justice student. I plan to work with juveniles when I graduate and agree with the death penalty for youths who committed violent crimes. Your family will be in my prayers. God bless you all for enduring such heart ache and remaining strong through the trials.

That was one of the most disturbing things that I have ever read...and I think that it will leave a mark on me to last forever. It sickens me to think that there are people like that out there, and I can only hope that where ever the guys who did it are...they are in agony...I wish that they could have been made to see truly how wrong what they did was just so that they could feel the same disgust and loathing, that I feel, for themselves. I'm sorry

My dear condolences to both families. This may be a little too late but I went to school with Elizabeth at St. Elizabeth Anne Seton. And remember her very vividly. This horrible crime happened when I was very young, well I was the same age as Liz. But I remember these horrific events as if they were yesterday. I just happened to stumble upon this sad website. I have just read the reports and had no idea of the evil that was in the air that night. Being that I now understand saddens me a great deal. I am now married and am an engineer for Halliburton, and still have kept in touch with several of my friends from Seton. In every one of our conversation Lizzy's name always comes up and it's still hard to swallow that someone we talked to and joked around with every day was taken away from us at that age. At that time all I really understood was, was that she was no longer with us. In my parting words I hope that the Lord punishes these perpetrators to the fullest extent. I can not forgive these evil people and sincerely hope that they suffer to the day of their death. If I can ever be of any help please let me know. You have my e-mail address and don't ever hesitate to use it. May God bless you Mr.& Mrs. Pena as well as the Ertmans.
