I'VE BEEN READING UP ON JUVENILE OFFENDERS; THEIR ARGUMENTS OF INSANITY, POOR UPBRINGING, ABUSIVE BACKGROUNDS, RETARDATION....ALL THE EXCUSES OF WHY MEN SHOULDN'T BE EXECUTED FOR CRIMES COMMITTED AS TEENAGERS. I WISH EACH OFFENDER COULD TRULY SPEND LIFE WITH OUT PAROLE, CABLE TV, HEATH CARE, COLLEGE COURSES, ETC...UNTIL THEIR DEATHS TO REFLECT DAILY ON THE EVIL OF THEIR SHORT LIVES. BUT SINCE LIFE USUALLY MEANS PAROLE IN 10-20 YEARS, I'M GLAD THEY RECEIVE DEATH. I PRAY TO GOD I NEVER ENCOUNTER PEOPLE THESE DEMONS AND I'M HAPPY THAT AT LEAST NO ONE ELSE WILL MEET THE MURDERERS OF THESE TWO CHILDREN AND BE TORTURED AND SLAUGHTERED FOR ENTERTAINMENT. I HOPE THE FAMILIES FIND SOME PEACE AND RELIEF AS MUCH AS CAN BE ALLOWED FOR SUCH A SENSELESS ABOMINATION.

I don't know where to even start but to say I'm sorry. I'm 17 and about to have a child of my own and I know how I would feel if that were to happen to my child. Once again sorry for your losses.

I have recently been researching capital punishment for my college paper and have found many cases that have purely upset me, but never in my life have I felt so sick and so disgusted of the thugs we live with. Being just a 16 year old myself I can't imagine why they could harm something so fragile in they way they did. Peace be with your daughters' souls and our love goes out to your hearts.

Every so often i search for information on when those 5 animals will be put to death, hopefully all on the same day so that this horrible horrible event will pass from my memory. As a father of two daughters, i cannot forget 10 years ago how my heart was so pained.

I'm really sorry. I've been in this situation before but I was lucky and I got away without any harm and I just left! It was a punk that lived in panama city so if you have kids make sure you watch them because I am 16 and it seems I wish I had no freedom and it would have never happened. So be careful and watch your kids!!! god bless

I just read this story and I got so sick to my stomach to know that there are people in this world as cruel as these monsters that killed two beautiful young girls. Their punishment is well deserved and they do deserve to die for the heinous crime that they committed without remorse for human lives. My deepest sympathy goes out to the Ertman and Pena families. Your daughters are now with god in heaven watching over all who they love. God bless you and give you the strength to go on until you can see your little angels in heaven again.

I AM REALLY SORRY ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED. MY GRANDDADDY WAS KILLED ALMOST 2 YEARS AGO AT HIS HOUSE IN ORANGEBURG. MY MOMS IS GOING TO COURT FOR THE FEMALE THAT KILLED MY GRANDDADDY. WE ARE HOPING FOR THE DEATH PENALTY BECAUSE WE CAN'T GET HIM BACK SO HER FAMILY SHOULDN'T BE ABLE TO GET HER BACK. I RAN THROUGH THIS STORY IN THE PROCESS OF DOING MY SPEECH FOR MY ENGLISH CLASS. BUT KEEP YOUR HEAD UP AND STAY POSITIVE, BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT I'M DOING AND I'M NOT DOING OR WANTING TO DO ANYTHING CRAZY. I DO IT FOR MY GRANDDADDY BECAUSE I KNOW HE'LL BE PROUD OF ME.

i was writing an essay on capital punishment for school. I am actually 16 years old at the moment so when i stumbled across this story I could sort of relate to the whole ‘going out late and having to come home at night issue’. I know almost everyone who has signed this guest book has said this but I am so sorry for this tragedy and your loss. This has made me feel really sad but I know it would be nothing compared to what you’ve felt. I’m so sorry.

First of all...I know that this might not mean much to you guys...(jenny and liz's parents) since so many people have visited this website and probably left comments to be read. But I just wanted to express to you guys that many people may tell you that its over and one day...this tragedy might be laid to rest...however, i want to let you guys know that i understand that these two were your princesses...they were probably everything to you. Life without them will never be the same. I know all of this. yet what i want to leave with you guys is that i know that if the both of them were still alive...they would want their loved ones to be happy. To remember all of the good memories that they shared with you guys. Especially the Shopping! They wouldn't want their love ones to be burdened with their death or blame him/herself for the tragedy. For the truth was, you guys couldn't do anything to have prevented it. Maybe...god or a higher power had a better plan for them...regardless...they are now gone...but will never be forgotten..

I am so sorry for your loss. I was wondering if you had any updates on the a@@holes that did this. I checked the Texas website, but that doesn't reveal much. Are they appealing, all I find is the usual mumbo jumbo "i am on death row and I'm innocent" crap from all those on death row. If you do, I'd like to know. Thanks.

I cannot help but wonder what were the leading factor or factors in the lives of those kids that would make this type of crime anything but repulsive and inhumane. Could not one of these boys at the time stop and think as to the way the whole crime was being played out ?,....my best regards to both families...Tony Telesford

I am so very sorry this horrible nightmare happened. Thirty one executions took place during the time I worked in the Prison System as a nurse. I am pro capital punishment, and feel it should be exercised more frequently, and definitely more rapidly. I believe it WOULD be a deterrent if it were an absolute fact that "you do the crime, you die." Not 10-15 years later, but immediately. I do pray you have may closure, and Peace.

I hope and pray that one day peace and happiness will once again be yours. I know they are waiting together for you to rejoin them on the other side.

I think the girls were blessed to have a wonderful friend like you to make a web page for them. I was only looking at this because my professor in English wanted us to write a essay on if we were for the death penalty or not and i am for it. This happened a long time ago and i had no idea. If you speak with the parents anytime soon, tell them i apologize for ignorant people, and i will keep them in my prayers. My heart goes out to them and many blessings. I have a son of my own and i wouldn't know what to do if that ever happened. i know it might be hard because it has been some time but let them know a lot of college students in California are in their corner. May God be With you and them for Eternity

To the dear Ertman and Pena families, It has been several years since you have lost your precious daughters and I still get reeling mad when I see that their killers are still getting their "three hots and a cot", while your girls lay in the cold dark ground still waiting for justice. I just want you to know that my love and my thoughts are still with you folks. Take care and GOD BLESS each of you.

Wow to know what I know now about that day that I don't want to remember, I am 27 years old now and work along the tracks that this happened near. I remember when I got the news that they found their bodies, I remember when I testified in the trial against Derrick Sean O'Brein. All I want to do is forget! I will have their memory in my mind forever. Just think that if I would have answered their page that night to come to that gathering that I might just be with them today. God Bless everyone that reads this and know that Justice is always in Gods hands.

i am very sorry to read about what happened to those to girls, i have known girls who were brutally raped along with which one was my mother when she was 16 almost 17 but i never knew anybody who was killed until recently. i moved to merced and met a really sweet man who was friends with my father he was the owner of a, if not the only decent bar i have ever seen and every body loved the place and there were never any fights until one night last month when there was a show going on and a girl asked him if she could record her boyfriend playing in the band. he said sure - she began recording when a man and his two friends where angry and worried about having a copy of their faces on film and began pushing her around, threatening her to turn it off. well he tried to stop it - everything seemed fine the rest of the night until almost closing time when the two men left and when he went through a long hallway to another room at the end of the bar the one man who stayed followed him back there and beat him so bad he became brain dead. the man was said to have held his head against the wall and continued to punch him on the other side smashing his brain, then the man just walked out, by the time they found him he had to be air lifted to another town and two days later his heart was transplanted to a girl who was in a car accident but he had unwillingly left behind family and many friends he never even knew he had. i had only finally met him face to face the night before it all happened and yet when i found out i even felt like i lost someone very special ...i will hopefully never lose a child of my own to murder. i look at my sons and hope and pray that they will always safe so if you know of any other thing that i may be able to do to keep these people from being released after what they have done to not just the victims but the friends and family who have to live with it after, and please pray for all of us who want the man from that night found and put away for taking our friend..

I heard about this page on the John Walsh show, and when I went on to it I was astonished both by the brutal acts that were committed and the strength of the families. Elizabeth, and Jenny’s families are in my heart.

I first want to begin by saying how sorry I am for the families and friends of these girls. I have always been a firm believer in the death penalty and this has made me sure of it. I am again sorry for your losses and will keep you all in my prayers.

Thank god there are still a "FEW" states that take crimes like this to heart. I'm a firm believer that the death penalty is needed in some situations... This being one of them. My only regret is that the youngest of the offenders still has an opportunity at having a life (Even if it's in his fifties.)

I send my deepest condolence for the the lost of your children. I am doing an argumentative essay on the death penalty, and I wasn't sure on which position to take if i were for or against the death penalty. But after coming across this story, I was crushed to hear about what happened to Jennifer and Elizabeth. These girls were beautiful, young, and innocent. I am totally for the death penalty. May God Bless you all!

I really sorry to hear what has happened to both Jenny and Elizabeth. I can't even imagine what the families are going through. I am currently doing a project in summer school about making the death penalty a law in every state. I personally am for it, but there are people who are agaist it. I was a bit unsure whether I was for it or against it but after reading this story as well as others I am totally for it. There are many people out there who do get away with murder and end up doing it again. No one really knows how it feels to have a family member killed until it happens to you. Jenny and Elizabeth were both beautiful young girls who I'm sure didn't deserve it. They will be in prayers and I know that they will always be with you (the families and friends) whether you know it or not. Nancy Roman Aurora, IL 17 yrs.

it makes me sick to think that anyone could do something this cruel. although sometimes it gets hard just remember that god will always help you through the bad times and remember that there are people out there who really care and feel (sad to say) close to the same pain that you feel. just remember that you are not alone and that the families of both jenny and elizabeth will be in my heart.

So sorry for your loss. The death penalty opponents always argue whether the accused deserves to die. They should try asking themselves if the accused deserves to live. I do believe in rehabilitation; however, a truly rehabilitated mind will accept the punishment due for the crime committed.

As a mother of an 18 yr. old girl, my heart goes out to the families of these girls. I believe in an eye for an eye. The Death Penalty should be used more frequently. We have thousands of victims each year yet so few executions. Where is the "Justice"?

I was only 12yrs old when Jennifer and Elizabeth lost their lives. Despite my young age, I will never forget learning the horrible news of their deaths. You see, I have a cousin whom I am very close with. To protect her privacy I will not state her name. I will however say that my cousin was very close friends with Elizabeth Pena. To this day I can still remember seeing my cousin's reaction to the news of her friends' deaths. I guess all I can say is that my prayers go out to Elizabeth's and Jennifer's families. I pray that Elizabeth and Jennifer's souls find peace as well as their loved ones. May God bless Jennifer and Elizabeth and hold the two of them in his loving arms as they rest in heaven. May the Ertman's and Pena's meet their daughters again one day in heaven. Sincerely, Elizabeth Maria Bradley
