    I attended school with this couple and I find it very hard to believe, may the detectives should take a step back and investigate the friends a little more. Maybe whomever did this is among them. All teary eyes dont weep for sadness but some weep because of guilt. RIP

    I wish everyone would just leave my brother alone, he would have gave the clothes off his back for anyone... People just do not realize that is my brother I just lost from an idiot who do not have a heart.. Maybe they need to be in this situation see how it feel to kill someone loved one... They just do not think before they react.. Think about what will happen if someone knew you did it and saw you on the streets or if you went twu prison and they where good friends with quan and jazz.. I'm just saying people should think before they react because it could happen to them or one of their close family members... But my brother will always be in my heart no matter what anyone have to say about this situation..!!!! <3 to my brother nd jazz but :'( that yall had to leave so soon....!!! I no y'all are looking over us.

    A bunch of grown people on a news story fussing about grammar and unrelated issues. Two people are dead and children are left without parents. No one knows the life these two people lead. Only family and friends can say how they were but the most important thing is no matter what they did not deserve to be killed by anyone. Come on people things are not that serious where you can't just walk away and let it go, just as you are loved by your family and friends these two were loved by their family and friends as well and all you people on here trying to figure out why the children weren't home and what they were involved in should be worrying more about who did this and them getting caught because you or your love one could be next on the list. Grow up people talk about what really matters here. My sincere heart felt prayers goes out the the children and these two family and friends.

    Jasmine and Quan were both good people, who would do anything for you. Despite what these ignorant people are saying. They didn't deserve this, their families didn't deserve this and their friends didn't deserve this. I can not believe the comments on a person death. Has the world truly taken a turn for the worst that we kick people when they are down? Do people not realize that she has a child that can see this,, their families can see it and the remaining loved ones can view this as well. HAVE YOU KNOW SYMPATHY??? My prayers go out to their families, especially the kids, their friends and all those who varied for them both and were touched by them. I also take the time to pray for the individuals making these outlandish comments. May GOD, rest upon your heart and mind. Be mindful that many people were hurt by the murders that occurred. To you all know that GOD is still in charge.......

    I knew this couple and grew up in the same community with them. they loved their children and families. they were also loved by many in the Princeville community. please think of the children before you make hurtful comments. everyone has a Family - think how hurt your parents and children would be.
