Ron your stuipid I know everything that happened so people can stop lying. That 16 year old girl is lying she is not mentally stable and she was obsessed with him she told him that if he wouldn't be with her that she would kill herself she made those marks she was NOT stabbed she took his electric beard razor and did that to herself. The fact that you dont know what truely happened and you want to make assumptions makes you look a horrible person. Learn the facts before you open your mouth
