      :( I’m sad to hear that she is no longer with us and that her family has to deal with the loss of a precious child but she is in God’s hands now and will never suffer again. At least her family to have closure.

      God Bless Nevaeh’s family.

      So sad, another precious, beautiful little girl gone from this world too soon.

      She is safe in the arms of Jesus now.

      I hope they catch those responsible for this horrible crime, and do it quickly!

      God bless those who loved her.

      Her mother is at a cross roads in her life.

      All she has to do is turn.

      But, she will carry this for the rest of her life.

      Every decision has consequences.

      Learn from her mistakes…

      Remember, if there are alarms

      You can turn on a dime!

      Where there’s life, there’s hope.

      god how can these people go on killing these little angels? everytime i turn the news on it’s another missing or murdered child,please dear god let it stop.

    10. Ashley Ogren on June 5th, 2009 12:29 am

      My condolences go out to Nevaeh friends and family. It is truley tragic that Nevaeh never had the opprotunity to live out her life because her life was ended too soon. She could of made a difference in the world, but now no one will know because her life was cut short. Even though this is a very stressful situation, no one should point fingers. With time science and law will solve this case, the media will not. The family is under enough pressure as it is and does not need people accusing them of the murder. Once again my condolences go out.

    11. Mary in NY on June 5th, 2009 1:00 am

      Don’t judge? What planet are you from anyway?
      Nevaeh’s mother cares more for sexual preditors than she does her little daughter. She had full knowledge the characters she was friends with and still she chose to subject her daughter to them. It doesn’t matter to me what you call it. She should be arrested for endangering the welfare of a child. She is an unfit parent and I only hope if she has other children they are taken away from her and put in a safe place.

    12. Rick on June 5th, 2009 5:37 am

      Its ironic her name spelt backwards is ‘heaven’.Rest in peace little angel.

    13. disminnie on June 5th, 2009 6:30 am

      bless her family?….the family knew he was a molester and that the mother was involved with a few as “friends”!…i feel for anyone having to go thru this, but bkless the family that knew she was in danger and around such people…..i hope they hold the whole family on charges for not protecting her! 74% of kids abducted are killed within the first 3 hours of being taken, i just dont know how this family can live with themselves…all cause the mother didnt want to be judgemental!!!…some people dont deserve to be parents….but if she’ll do a home invasion, i guess it would make sense to stand by her “friend” more than her daughter. this world makes me sick.

    14. kellie on June 5th, 2009 7:26 am

      I have come to believe that if we could only see the evil that walks among us each day we would all be calling on the name of Christ no matter what our chosen religion or level of faith. The only explanation for the unthinkable things people do to the innocent is pure evil. God help us all. It is too late for precious Nevaeh, but mothers and fathers alike, please pay attention to who your children are in the company of.

    15. MiMict on June 5th, 2009 8:22 am

      Prayers for this precious child.
      Whar a horrible case of neglect. Leaving her unsupervised to play and exposing her to sexual predators. What was she so busy doing? I would not be surprised if the biological father goes after this mother.
      Tragic – she chose her men over this child’s welfare. Men who were known sex offenders.

    16. Latoya on June 5th, 2009 1:22 pm

      iam so saorry to hear that she is no longer with us, i’ve kept her in my paryers and thats will she will remain. i bless ya’ll heart and let her rest in peace.

    17. anothersadmom on June 5th, 2009 7:25 pm

      Was it a sex offender that did this? You don’t have to be a sex offender to be a murderer. Was it the men in JB’s life? Oh wait, WE DON’T KNOW! The same judgement that you use toward others will be used toward you. To all you finger pointers, let’s hope one of your mistakes don’t turn out in tradgedy. Pain breeds bad choices. If we could close our mouths and open our minds long enough to reach out and love a wounded soul their reality wouldn’t be so tainted to produce such risky choices. So the people in JBs life were criminals. Maybe it was bc all of you “perfect people” didn’t give her a chance. People will seek out love in whatever way they can find it. Let’s remember that she will forever carry Neveah’s blood on her head. But hold the witch hunt until the witch is found. We all want answers but throwing stones isn’t getting us any closer to the truth. Its only kicking someone when their down and based on sheer assumptions. Show love Monroe, and people wouldn’t have to turn to such measures. Rest in peace precious Neveah. You have changed the lives of so many and taught us love and protect our babies so much more. How many children’s lives have been saved by this wake up call? May it all come out and justice be served to those who TRULY deserve it. We are all hurting. We are all mourning. Let’s not let our pain skew our judgement.

    18. Patti on June 5th, 2009 11:51 pm

      There is no perfection, here. Only caring people who see the world and the things happening in it as threatening. Most of the people who read and comment here have seen their share of errors as we all have made them at one time or another. And, it’s different when there is only one that will face the consequences of his error. But, when you are blessed with a child… there becomes two. Unfortunately, it’s usually always the children who pay the price for the parent’s poor judgment and risky behavior. It is because of this that we are careful of who we allow to be around our children, get to know their teachers and associates and, even, teach them how to protect themselves from strangers. We can’t dictate what goes on out there, but we can dictate what goes on in our own personal lives and under our roof. It is being naive to think that it is being judgmental to turn away a sex offender without giving him a chance. There are rules and penalties in place that are made up to protect us from these individuals and they are there for a purpose. This man should not have been allowed to walk into Neveah’s home, much less, be a father figure to her….

      Hard lesson, but one we all must learn.

      Sadly, our society is not educating folks about sexual predators and the fact that they can not be rehabilitated. This woman may have had a sense of false security that if the system let him out, maybe he ain’t all that bad? Now, I’m not condoning the fact that she had her daughter around a level 3 sex offender ~ I am not ~ however, I’m very aware that society and our judicial system has and had failed this little child and her family… as well has failed mine ~

      The legislators, judges in the country have blood on their hands and our law enforcement officers hands are tied. This monster had been caught, and released ~ he did the most heinous vicious crime toward an innocent child(ren) and was allowed back into society to do it again ~ If anyone is at fault here and to blame, it is our legal system that is dysfunctional and allows it to continue, over and over and OVER again.. It is our State and Federal Government at work here, that feels it is more costly (dollar wise) to hold these monsters incarcerated ~ and they’d rather have their cell room(s) available for other criminals ~ turn em out… let society fend for them… what? Let them get a job?

      Society is paying a dear price for letting predator/sex offenders back into the streets ~ it cost the LIFE of Neveah and to me, that was way to costly ~ no amount of expense should be held back to keep predator/sex offenders locked up… a LIFE of a 5 year old child? Come on ~ you can’t put a price on such a precious child… it would have been worth every stinking dime and amount of money to keep this sexual offender locked up… one more that has been CAUGHT off the streets… (my son’s predator monster was never put on the registered list and there are MANY more out there that are not listed as well… they have to be tried…) it’s frightening.

      One more ~ how many more children need to be sacrificed to the system before it stops? That’s what I’d like to know… How many more children… it is so wrong and heinous that it continues.

      Most Mothers would NOT allow a sexual predator around their child ~ however, we’re living in a very skewed society, where upon, if this (monster) man was befriended by Neveah’s Mother, perhaps he was a charmer and she felt well, if he’s back on the streets, maybe he’s okay?

      I’m sure, now, she will regret till the day she dies, that she had this monster around her child… what a price to pay… oh, how immensely sad… how, very, very, very, sad.

      My heart aches and I also have empathy being a victorious survivor…

      This madness has to stop.

      The Neveah’s of this world are too precious and our legal system has failed this child… society has failed this child by not standing up for the little innocent children who’s voices are continually silenced and unfortunately, Neveah’s has been silenced permanently.

      Time for those of us, to become more fierce in raising our voices together to tell our legislators enough! I’ve found my fierce voice and those legislators having heard me, listen, I’ve been heard, however, they have not changed anything…

      Why? That is the question, I’m going to ask next ~ I do not understand what it is going to take ~ if a 5 year old childs murder from a known predator does not change these heinous crimes from being stopped and sexual predators are still allowed in the streets afterwards, then, our system is very, very broken… is this all about money?

      Someone, please help me/us, understand this.

      God bless the silent sufferers of these heinous crimes… sexual predators/monsters are very sick and yes, many have been victims themselves and that does not excuse their evil behavior ~ it is all about power and control and they are out of control and a danger to society…

      God bless Neveahs family and be with them in their time of grieving…

      I’m so saddened and sorry that society failed this child and did not protect her ~

      I don’t know what the answer is ~ to make it stop, advocating for 20 years myself has only made me realize it may not… and we devalue children, our most precious, precious gift to us from God…


      I’m at a loss for words ~ and so disappointed.

    20. Patti on June 6th, 2009 1:46 pm

      I pray for this family, just like all the rest

      because there is fault and error in all of us.

      In a report i had read online. Jennifer had called George at the time the child went missing and she had also said george was FISHING WITH HIS GIRLFRIEND WHEN JENNIFER CALLED AND HER THEN MET JENNIFER TO HELP KIND THE CHILD…..The child was found in at a place where a fisherman would have access to. think about it…

      when i find the statement i will post it

    23. Melody on June 6th, 2009 8:43 pm

      And sorry about the grammar errors!

      In a report i had read online.

    26. Melody on June 6th, 2009 10:17 pm

      it was said in an interview with jennifer that when she found out her daughter was missing she call george and he was with his girlfriend fishing when jennifer called. she then said he and his g/f stopped fishing and met with jennifer to look for the child…. is it a coincidence that the child was found on the river? he might have known some discreet places to fish… maybe him and his friends fished all the time and knew of that place. i dont know…seems strange to me…sorry for the errors…

    27. luna on April 6th, 2010 4:08 pm

      This story makes me sick. Who would let there child near a sex offender? Nevaeh would’ve grown up into a great person in our society, but nope. Her mother put her child in danger. Jennifer will hold this guilt inside her forever. I hope she won’t go back to dating rapists in the future. If Nevaeh was around and her mother Married that monster, I’m sure that Nevaeh would’ve been exposed to a living hell. We need to educate the public more about these dangers. And I was looking foward to Nevaeh coming home safe and sound. Almost every time a child is kidnapped, we find their bodies in dumpster or something all beat up and naked. Please God, help us but an end to this idiocracy, and may you hold Nevaeh safe in your loving arms, and may she eest in peace. Amen. ~Luna
