I am researching for an English paper when this website came up. As I read on I was appalled at the inhumane acts that were forced upon your daughters. I normally wouldn't write to people I don't know or intrude on such horrific matter, but my deepest sympathies go out to you and your families. I will definitely say a prayer for your daughters in church next weekend. I hope your family and friends can somehow find some sort of peace in your life after your loss. Good luck and you have my best wishes. Sincerely, Rachel Walker, Greenfield, MA

Your daughters were too young, too bright, and I'm sure too smart to have this happen to them. People in this world are cruel. I will pray nightly that both of you families of the victims recover from the scars these murderers left on your minds, hearts, and souls. God is watching out for them in Heaven and from there, they are watching out for you too.

The sadness that I feel for both of the families of these young girls right now is so overwhelming it brings me to tears. However, the tears are unable to flow as the anger in my chest at the heinous crimes of these young men is so fresh that its impossible to cry. I send my love and trust in God to both families and wish that you all know that pray heals all. Joy Newbold – Acadia University

As I was reading this story, I could feel tears come to my eyes. What human would want to do that to any innocent woman or child? I can't understand this. I recently turned 14, and I have been hearing stories everywhere about rapes, murders, and other incidents. I am doing a paper for History on capital punishment, and I came to the site which had this story in it. I couldn't believe what I was reading. I am not only afraid for myself, but for other young girls out there that can be harmed. I feel terribly for not only the families of these 2 daughters, but for any other family that has to deal with this problem. I hope that you and any one else that is going through hard times with crimes this bad, will be alright. My apology and love is with you.

This is probably one of the worst cases of criminal activities perpetrated by juveniles that I have ever read. May God help both families endure these irreparable losses. Although I have my conflicts about the death penalty, it seems the most appropriate penalty in these cases. May God bless you all.

As a father of two, I can't even begin to fathom what the parents have been through. I hope that they die real soon for their crimes and there is a warm place in Hell for them. Keep up the good work, letting people know about the scum that seeps up from the sewers and holding them responsible for their actions.

I am deeply sorry for your terrible loss of your young daughters. This is a terrible tragedy. I believe that those six men deserve no less than death. People who are Anti-Death penalty commonly use the argument thou shalt not kill. However in contrast God himself issued the death of several people in the Old and New Testament and if they are to use that argument they should sit back, reflect and look at the whole picture. Again I can only say how Sorry I am for your loss. My Prayers are with you and your family. Remember that the girls are in a place now where they can no longer feel pain.

I'm writing a discursive essay on the death penalty, that's how i came onto this page. I suppose that this will just be another 1 in a million "I'm sorry" notes, but you can never really get enough of that, can you?  I, unlike everyone else here it seems, am anti-death penalty.. and feel that purely emotional reasons shouldn't fuel the fire that is to end a persons life. Thou shall not kill, as God says.. May you find peace.

But I do know that no matter what we do to them is nothing compared to what god's going to do to the 5 SOB's that did this! my prayers go out to the family and friends may god be with you.

it's unbelievable how other people can turn around and decide to take someone else's life. it's indeed unfair and tragic. those two girls could have had better experiences and for those 6 people to decide whether or not they should experience those or not were none of their judgments. they deserve punishments but we, humans, cannot decide how. i am deeply touched and horrified by this story. it's not impossible for someone i know or even me, that this same thing can happen. IT'S UNBELIEVABLE HOW OUR LIVES ROTATE TO SO MUCH EVIL DOINGS.

I feel deeply sorry for you and your family. I had heard about this incident, but hadn't gotten the whole story, and I had just happened to open this page because I am working on a debate for one of my classes. Me and my group are going for Pro-Death Penalty. I'm sure you feel the same way after the way your daughters were treated. Well I wish you luck and good fortune for the future. Buh bye.

my teacher asked us to write a paper on whether or not we support the death penalty. i had written my paper as being against it. after reading these courageous girls stories i an enraged. i can't believe that some one would do this to another human being. i am now a very strong supporter of the death penalty. as for the rest of the non supporters out there. i will show them this story and see if they still think that the death penalty is wrong. thank you for sharing these girls stories i am forever changed.

We just moved to Harris County this past year. I had no idea that this horrible event had happened here and I am so sorry for the families. It seems from this report that many changes have taken place as a result of the apprehension and conviction of these criminals. Especially in peoples' opinion concerning the death penalty. Hopefully this good news and the changes that are resulting in attitudes and even laws and practices concerning convicted felons will give the family a little peace.

Your story about Jenny and Elizabeth changed my life. I am very sorry and now I know that death penalty is the right way to go in situations like these. You have my prayers. Sincerely Megan

I am doing research on the death penalty at school and stumbled upon this site. After reading it, I am now inspired to re-write the death penalty system, giving the murderers a much more brutal and inhumane death, no painless lethal injection. Jail is not enough for these people, they should suffer the same amount if not more than what their victims had to go through. I am also inspired to try to become an officer that deals specifically with gang activities.

I am now and always have been a supporter of the death penalty. To listen to those who would say that it is wrong to let the "State" kill a man in punishment for a crime, should visit this site and read this story. They should put themselves into your place and imagine what it would feel like if it was their daughter this happened to. My deepest condolences on your loss. MAY GOD BLESS YOU!!!

I came to this site because I was doing a essay paper on death penalty. I never dreamed that I would come across something this horrible. My heart goes out to the entire families. I can't say I know how you feel because I don't. No one knows how you feel in a situation like this. May God bless each and everyone of you. I am truly sorry for what has happened to the two young girls. If I could change the law I would - they don't need 40 yrs, 50 yrs nor 60 yrs - they need the death penalty. God be with you all.

Two beautiful girls who were not much younger than I am today being murdered like that is so awful that I can't even find the words to describe my horror and disgust for the people who took these girls' lives. I hope that each day becomes a bit easier and also I hope that their memories live on.

I would just like to say that I am truly sorry for the loss of both your daughters. I am so saddened by reading this story and to think that we live in a world where something like this can take place. I also would just like to express how much I admire your willingness and efforts to tell all who will listen the story of two beautiful and special girls. I just stumbled across this story but I am so thankful that I did. I will never forget what I have read today. Again, I am truly sorry for your loss and hope that all goes well for both families in the future. May Jennifer and Elizabeth rest in peace for all eternity. My prayers go out to both their families. God Bless.

as a student getting a degree in criminal justice i have heard my share of intense cases of rape and murder. I came upon this site while researching for a project in one of my classes. when I read this story i was dumbfounded. These girls had their future ahead of them and it was ruined because of the stupidity of some teens. I dont care if they are youth, they should all get the death penalty for what they did. they ruined the life of the girls and of their family.

I am so sorry for your loss. losing a child is the worst thing that can happen to anyone. any man who rapes or murders or assaults women or girls (or anyone for that matter!) should be castrated and then burned alive. criminals like these should be treated like the maggots they are. they're not human and shouldn't be treated as if they were, prison is too good for them. they need to be completely eradicated. free this world of scum so those who deserve it can live happily and safely. i wish i could kill those bastards myself. Jenny and Elizabeth are in a better place now. my prayers and thoughts are with you all.

I was looking on a report against the Death Penalty for a project in school. After accidentally bumping into this web page, I am all for it. Especially to all 5 of them bastards that did this to Jenny and Elizabeth. I am very disturbed and I cannot believe these wannabe gang members had the nerve to do such a heinous crime. I feel for you and your family and will enjoy the day that this punishment is followed thru.

hi i came across your site while looking at the death penalty for a debate i am doing at marysville ohio high school in my english class. I read the entire story bout jenny and elizabeth - i am terribly sorry for the loss of those 2 very young beautiful caring girls. when reading this story i was in tears, how could someone do this to such a person especially these two wonderful girls. I can understand what the families are going through - i lost a friend who was murdered along with his mother & stepdad and his new sister who was on the way. the police never found who had killed them. i truly have pain for all three of these people - they were very nice caring people. I am 16 and i have five brothers and now i can understand why the are so over-protective of me ,but i am scared to be out late. i think the guys who did this to your daughters should rot in hell - actually they shouldn't exist at all - never should have been born. if they never were born your daughters could be here today for you fathers to walk your daughters down the aisle when they get married and for you & the families to see them graduate from high school and make something of themselves and i can understand why my father was protective over me - he was also protective over my friends. if it was late & my father saw young girls out he would ask them what are they doing out this late like a couple of weeks ago, a girl was out around 5 in the morning & my father seen her & asked her what she was doing out this late & a week later my father found out that that girl was raped & my father cried b/c of knowing he saw that girl & tried to help her but got jumped instead by some guys & later on find out the girl was raped. i also feel your loss b/c i had a cousin who was raped and murdered by a good family friend. she was only 8 yrs old she was taken out of her home & raped & killed. those men deserve what they get. may my love be with you. jenny and elizabeth, you guys will always be in my prayers. may god be with the family. sincerely, randijo nelson. i would appreciate if the families would e-mail me

I feel for you, I lost my sister to an animal they let go a few years ago. Now he's out to do it again. Illinois laws are rather weak when it comes to murder. It is such a waste to lose a warm, bright, and beautiful loved one to such senseless crime. May they rot in jail. The hurt never goes away, there's not a day that your girls shouldn't be here. Having kids, getting older, hugging you around the neck, just sending you a smile. All these things are things that will never be again. It's a lifetime lost. My heart is with you. May they live in your heart forever.

OK! For all those who do not believe in the death penalty. PLEASE! Take a good look at this site.

http://www.deathrow.at/polunsky/

These animals still will not admit that they did wrong almost 10 years ago. They took Jennifer and Elizabeth from us, But want us to feel sorry because they are on death row! They cry because they are being treated unfairly! It makes me sick! We must do all we can to put these monsters in the ground. ASAP. Our children need us to stand up for them, not these animals.

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone that has written in the guest book. Elizabeth and I were best friends and not a day goes by that I don't miss her more than ever. It doesn't help to hear what awful things have happened to her, but now that 10 years have almost passed it is getting easier. I love and miss her but i know in my heart she is near me all the time. For you that say she is an angel, she was angel before she left this earth. She was a committed friend and she was always worried about other people. Not to mention she had an awesome way of making you laugh. I miss hearing her laugh and I look forward to the day when I see her smile again. I love and miss you Lizzie. (Peanut) Gillian

After I signed the guest book, I began reading the other entries. I come to this site often, because I lived in the neighborhood where this terrible, terrible crime occurred. In fact, I knew one of the gang members and had known him and his family for about a decade. I was shocked when I found out that he was involved. He is on death row, and I feel sorry for his mother. But not for him. The young man I knew ceased to exist that night. He became an animal that night. A dangerous animal that should be removed from our midst. I am glad that Texas has the death penalty. I have daughters, and I cannot imagine the pain Jennifer and Elizabeth's families have had to endure. May God bless them . Also I want them to know that I will always remember their beautiful little girls. Every time I look at my girls, I will remember.

The story of Jenny and Elizabeth touched me a lot. I am the same age these tow girls were. I know what it is to be 16 and life in front of us. Murderers take a privilege: life. The life of beautiful girls, which just by the pictures, seemed enjoying life. You can't take another person's life. If you do it, you are in wrong. That's why I am 100% for death penalty. I'm from Québec, Canada, and here, it does not work this way, unfortunately... I give my support to the victims' families and friends.

First and foremost I want to let the families of Jenny Ertman and Elizabeth Pena know how sorry I am for their loss. When I first signed in the guest book, I honestly had no words to describe the pain I felt for the Ertmans and the Penas. So I did not write any comments. I felt sad, upset and at the same time knew that I needed to send some words of comfort, even though the brutal crimes were done some time ago. Even though it happened a while back, the pain and sadness of Jenny and Elizabeth will never go away. I myself have never lost a person in my life to a crime such as the ones brought on to your innocent daughters, but while reading what had happened it brought me to tears. I want to thank the Ertman and Pena families for sharing the story of the daughters death, I know it is very difficult to bring up the subject, and want to let you know how brave you guys are. May you live the rest of your lives full and content, for your daughter would want you to live happy, and then live happily in heaven where your lovely daughters are waiting for you.

I too am very sorry for your loss and pain. I can relate as I am a victim myself. They say one can never fully understand unless they have walked a mile in your shoes. I have walked that mile with you. My Mother and Grandmother were beaten and stabbed to death in their home by a person known to them. This happened in a quiet little town just north of Corpus Christi, TX. The offender is on death row and has already had 1 execution date stayed. I believe in an eye for an eye. If the offenders were to be killed as they killed their victims...I believe the murder rate would take a huge nose dive. But... we as a "civil" society, would never allow that type of execution to happen The judicial systems say, we must be "humane" in our death policies. Were the offenders "humane" to their victims?

I remember hearing about your loss on local news here in Houston. I used to have friends in the same area (Oak Forest). Alot of times I drive by the area your girls died and I am reminded of this brutal crime. I pray that these guys will suffer in prison real bad. They will be reminded every day of their stupidity. They could have led normal lives but chose to do something real cruel and crazy. We in Texas have plenty of room in prison for these kind of creatures. When they die I hope they would be scolded even more. God is the answer for your pain right now. Choose him. He will make things easier to understand.

I am a child advocate from New York. I thought myself pretty tough. But after reading what happened to these two friends, I had to step away from the computer, take a couple of deep breaths and shake my arms to stop my body from becoming numb. The utter degradation and indecency to which these two gorgeous young women, future mothers of our society, future grandmothers and possibly great-grandmothers were made to endure before they were so brutally and callously slain is barely conceivable. Thank the Heavens that justice was served! Perhaps in some small way the Ertman and Pena families may be able to heal. May God bless them and keep them comforted throughout their lives.

This appalling tragedy is a horrific indictment on a violent society. The nature of the crimes committed against these two young girls is practically too vile to contemplate. However, executing the perpetrators seems more like revenge than justice. I believe that if we are to eradicate these acts of mindless violence from our society the use of long term custodial sentences will serve as both punishment and protection of members of our society. And, in some cases offers the criminal the opportunity to repent.

I started reading this as a reason not to believe in the death penalty. But after reading this report, there's no way that I can't believe. There is no reason a person should have to go through this type of pain.. Now I am encouraged to continue in college, (my remaining two years) to become a P.O. (parole officers). Those criminals may not have had a problem background but what they did, will haunt their future forever. I am willing, as a citizen to pay taxes on criminals just like this, just so they stay out of society.... My prayers are with you all.

My heart aches for sympathy for the families and friends of Jenny and Elizabeth. I've never met these young ladies but the description of how they died at the hands of vicious thugs, is sickening. If any case is deserving of the death penalty these are. In the Bahamas, the majority of the citizens supports the death penalty and calls everyday for the powers that be to enforce the laws of the land. The punishment must indeed fit the crime. I do believe in "Human Rights" but only for those who act/behave like human being. I pray that you the family will find comfort in God's Word and remember that these murderers will again have to face the Judge of all judges...God! May the God of all comfort through the Grace of His Son Jesus Christ, bring you peace daily. God Bless and I believe that Jenny and Elizabeth are safe in the arms of Jesus...free from any and all other attacks. Pastor Napthali Cooper.

I am so very sorry for your loss, I have four girls and i can not even imagine what i would do if this happened to my family. The fact that you live in Texas is a blessing, If you lived in any other state and this had happened they may not have gotten their just desserts. I am for the death penalty and I think that all states should use it as a deterrent to crimes such as yours. Once again I am so very sorry for your loss. I am doing a report on Capital punishment and will use your daughter's story for my reasons for supporting the death penalty. You are in my prayers and in my family's prayers.

I'm from the New York City area and first read about this crime in September, 1994, when my local newspaper picked up a news feed on the story. I saw a picture of Randy Ertman being restrained outside a Houston courtroom, where he had lashed out at three of the five gang members convicted of killing his daughter Jennifer and her friend Elizabeth. This is one of the most unspeakable crimes that I've ever heard about, and there can be no doubt that the defendants deserve the death penalty. The five perpetrators have been on death row for almost ten years; the criminal justice system works very slowly in this country. This case drew a parallel to the story of the Central Park jogger in New York City; she had also entered a big city park late at night and was subsequently attacked by a group of savages. I look forward to the day when the five defendants are executed. I wish that I could be in the witness room to see them die! I almost wish that they would die in the same manner in which the two victims were killed. Jennifer Ertman was a very beautiful young girl, and her death will be avenged.

Dreadful truly dreadful, the fate of sick killers like these should be left up too the families of the victims not easily manipulated people on the jury or an old unfeeling Judge. Take away the death penalty and it leaves society without any protection against sadistic twisted scum like this. They show no remorse, prison is far too good, the Criminals are the ones who are talked about and remembered the victims are forgotten, this is a lovely memorial to Jenny and Elizabeth. If we take away the death penalty then cases like these will increase and the terrible death suffered by Jenny and Elizabeth will be meaningless. xxxxxxxxxx Jenny

I just want to say that if the parents are reading this I am so sorry for your loss and I personally can't believe that the minor didn't get the death penalty. I think that you should do one of those barbra walters specials because alot of people could learn from this!

i don't have and girls, and i can't imagine what it is that your family is going through. I will promise you that i will instill it in my son's (age 5) head how important it is to not be involved with anyone who is in a gang, nevermind if he was in one. I do apologize for your loss and i hope those boys that changed your families life will never go free.

all i can say is that i cant believe this story - how rotten and how sick and twisted people can be for doing this to two innocent girls and for them to beg them not to kill them and said that they would promise to get together again shows that these girls would do anything to live and they the killers BRAGGED about it - that is nothing to be proud of. i hope they get the worst punishment they could and they have to live with it for the REST of their lives remembering how they are so sick-- i think they should get the death penalty and have to die the same way those two poor girls had to die -- UNpeacefully, and in PAIN

i'm filled with sorrow after reading what i've just read, i know how it is to lose someone you hold dear, but not to lose them in an awful act like this. i hope and pray for the best for your family, and remind you that the girls are in a better place. i hope that the ignorant men who committed this, burn in hell when their day of death come.

What I wanna know is why these (deleted) get to sit on death row forever. There should be a 2 year time limit for them to get their appeals done. In my opinion, death is too good for these (deleted). I would beat them senseless with a baseball bat.

I entered this site with the intentions of finding pro-death penalty stances to argue against in a paper I've been assigned in a class. I now realize that in cases such as Jenny and Elizabeth, the right of the criminal to live is NOT a concern. The retribution for the crime is the first and foremost concern in my mind. In a day and age where these things happen, and a life sentence is by no means actually a life sentence, criminals leave the justice system with no other choice than capital punishment. Thank you for opening my eyes.

I was looking for information for a sociology term paper when I stumbled across this site. Being 17, that fills me with complete sadness for Jenny and Elizabeth and disgust for the creeps (for lack of less appropriate words) than I ever thought I could feel about anyone. I hope that you feel you received an ounce of justice for your girls. I give you my deepest regards.

I found your site while looking for other information and then I became stuck in it. I read everything. I have been a Detective for the past 20 years and involved in similar cases, but the tribute you have presented in the memory of these girls taken from their families was heart wrenching. I live in Australia and have forwarded the site to my colleagues. The Federal and State Governments in Australia will not entertain any talk of the Death Penalty. I can assure them that people do not have put up with this disgusting behaviour by criminals. We have to take some leaves from the books of Law of the United States. I am now a watcher of the Death Row lists and a supporter. My heart goes out to Jenny and Elisabeth's families.

I think it is very sad about what happened to the two young girls and I hope the men get or got what they deserved. I don't think anyone should have to go through what they went through or what there families went to. I think it is very sad and I am very sorry for both the families. Thanks for listening to what I have to say.

Every so often I come back to this website and read about Jenny's and Elizabeth horrible tragedy and the brutal ways that their lives were taken. At the end of the story, I find myself in tears. I realize how soon the 10th yr anniversary is close to date, and I wonder how the Ertman and Pena families are doing. I only hope the families are doing well. I see their pictures and look into their eyes. I see the spirit, laughter and joy they must have given to those that surrounded Jenny and Elizabeth. I pray for both of the young ladies and their families. I would like you to know that ever since I first read their story two years ago....I always think of the ladies as my sisters. Sisters that our world has lost. My love goes out to you...Monica

I am so very sorry for the loss of your two beautiful daughters, so young and with so much to live for. I guess the only bit of consolation is that the animals that committed this atrocity were caught and will soon pay with their own worthless lives. Tonight i shall hug my daughter and granddaughters a little tighter and a little longer and thank God for them and I will say a special prayer for you, Jenny and Elizabeth. God Bless you

It is terrible to have to live with such memories and also to know there are those that feel sorry for murders! They deserve the death penalty. Anyone that deliberately kills someone so brutally does. Americans are getting to soft. Being in a jail is no fun, I am sure, but it can become a way of life after awhile. Only death can be final. They deserve that fear they have to face and then the world will be a better place with them and those like them gone.

I am so sorry for your loss. I felt angry after reading this article that *inhumane* "people" could ever walk this earth and think how cool they are and how proud they are to have done this. Those two girls are so beautiful and shouldn't have died. Those bastards deserve death. You're in my thoughts and prayers every night.
