    i dated matt in high school for two years i know in my heart that he would never hurt anyone let alone a child!!! he never got into fights i have sewen him with my own eyes walk away from a fight, i have been to say that i hope the wrath of god comes down on this girl..not women and she cant stand it any longer and womens up and teels the truth thats the least that she can do for her daughter take responsibility for what she did instead of destroying another life, the only one that did do things wthe little girl and look out for her was matt!!! it is heart breaking and more than i can almost take to see an innocent man sit there for 14 months missing the lives of his own kids pass him by because of a selfish girl that said her self she was obsessed with him! god know the truth pray that she cant handle it any breaks...rip alyssa!!

    No one needs to check out the dad. I worked with Avery and know he loved that little girl. As for Matt, he and his mother had tempers that would go off in a second if you did not kiss their behinds. If he did it, and I believe he did, death penalty is justified.

    ok for all of these ppl saying Matt wouldnt do it. he sure knows what happened to this child. u dont see peple 24/7. no on knows what goes on behind closed doors. dont judge a book by its cover. i went to school with angel and she was the sweetest person. but i still believe she played a role in her daughter's death.

    All I have to say is that I am not accusing or defending anyone but I have known Matt for a very long time and I know goodness well that he would never harm a fly let alone a little girl that he looked at as his own child. The mother on the other hand I dont know her so therefore I'm not gonna judge her. No one knows what happened that night so all the negativity about killing them should be kept to yourself. Just say that you hope the truth comes out and justice is served cause all the rest is irrelevant. If you were in their families shoes I'm pretty sure u wouldnt be saying give your child the death sentence. Dont judge when you dont even know!!!! Only god can judge and in the end...thats all that matters.

    I want to know if Matthew has a lawyer yet. He is not responible for the murder of the little girl by just living with this woman. Please some one help him to find a lawyer that can help him out of this. He isn't guilty.That is my heartfelt feelings

    Has any one checked out the baby's dad? Just maybe he is capable. What a shame, that blame is put on some one and they haven't even been to trial. My prayers are for Matt. He is still one of God's children.

    Okay so....I dont care if your related to either one of these ppl, you never know what some people are capable of. You just dont know It doesnt matter how well you know them. One of my best friends killed her little girl a long time ago an I never thought she would ever do anything like that. Until they found her guilty soo like I said you dont know the truth only the people who were there know the truth an unfortunatly 98% out of 100 people will never tell the truth!

    i do not belive this world it sickens me. this young man is my brother and i have to say in his defence i know my brother and he would never do anything to hurt any child in any way and these charges are killing him more then you people out there. how can people like you judge people before knowing the facts and jump to the conclushions to put people away for life or kill them or say he did it your all nieve if you ask me. put your self in these young adults parents shoes and tell me then how you would judge your own kid or blood if they were in this position tell me. i hope it works out for his sake that hes found not guilty and the real one is found to this case that did the crime and terrible act to that poor little girl.so one day all you that judge people before living in there shoes or the familys relize how much harder it is cause i used to be nieve and say the same thing to people on the news that did wrong till it was one of my own,my family,my blood that was charged of wrong.

    when something like this happens it makes me feel so sad to know the world is the way it is.. i will be thinking about this little girl forever now.. it really is crazy that people harm little innocent children that cannot protect theirselves.. i know of these two people and i seen their facebook pictures.. what looked like a normal little family evidently was not.. such a sad story.. my heart is so heavy right now.. the sharp knife of a short life
