    Kayla was not shot in the head. I wished you reporters would get your storys straight. Amber was not flown to any hospital, she got there in an ambulance. She didnt get surgery. Amber also did not meet any police officers at the door if she stayed at that home that night she would have been killed for sure. She ran down the dirt road and met an officer at the end of Belfonte. Kayla was not this dark little girl that everyone has made her out to be. If any of you had to put up with the things she did and the things she went through you would be depressed too. This is all Earl Reynolds fault and Depart of Social Services because both in their own way neglected Kayla and didnt help her. Both of them never cared. D.S.S. needs to start doing their jobs and so many people wouldnt take the law in their own hands. Thats why Amber came back to Virgina because she knew it was getting bad for her sister. She gave up so much to be with her only to have this happen. Earl might have been on drugs that night but that doesnt make somebody kill. It is no excuse and a sorry one at that. I hope he burns.
