    My heart goes out to the victims family.Life is a mystery, if we allow satan to step in just for a few seconds he will tear us apart.Look what he done he destroyed two families at the same time. Both families were well known to each other.Everyone that know james knows something bad must had taken place. What? Icannot answer that and the dead cannot talk so let the truth be told by the survivor and hopefully James will be a free man. Love u James.

    To everyone that thinks a comment section is not suppose to include opinions of each INDIVIDUAL then I say, sure! However, I would like to say that I am close to several members of the Moody family and I know Nathaniel and Tyrone personally. Surely my heart goes out to both families because each family loves their loved one just like many other family and they will miss them. However, in my readings of others comments it seems that the majority of the OPINIONS, are implying that now Nathaniel is dead he was some Godly saint. Sure the activities that went on at James Lewis' were not legal or even honest, but does that mean that he as a person was a demon. Maybe as stated several times before, people should shut up and let Valerie Asbell-Mitchell, a good friend of mine, do her job with this case and dig up ALL of the facts in everyone's past not just James Lewis'.

    to the families: i extend my condolences,because in reality,you both may have loss a love one,there's no words that could ease the loss or signify justification for the cruel act that was bestowed upon you in the early hours of saturday morning. i pray that each family will have strength and endurance to accept what 'GOD' has allowed, and move on.it's true everyone has their own opinion, but sometimes it's best to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are stupid,than to open your mouth and prove it.

    To anonymous... As a teacher, I feel that you need a lesson in geography. Williamston is not part of Bertie.
