Death of North Carolina teen deeply saddening

April 28, 2011

I am sad and sick to my stomach about the death of Phylicia Barnes ("Teen's family is left with a heartbreaking puzzle," April 25). Why did someone do this to her?

Whoever committed this terrible crime knows that they did not have to take this young girl's life. My prayers go out to her family and friends. I know someone out there besides the killer knows what happened to this young lady, and I pray that this person will come forward soon.

I really am tired of hearing about our young children losing their lives over nothing. We have children expecting them to outlive their parents, not for parents to outlive the children.
