    The second article makes it sound like the guilt finally drove him to confess. I'll be interested to see if that's actually the case, or if he was in fear that LE was making progress on the case. I'm sure that Scott's family is glad to finally be getting some answers...they've already had to wait this long, hopefully the perp will be entirely forthcoming so that the family can continue with their healing process.

    I might have felt more charitable toward him if he hadn't waited more than 20 years to confess.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    From November 2014:

    http://www.wptv.com/news/region-st-l...-crack-cocaine

    Kerry Arthur Jacob, 51, of the 3000 block of Southwest Briggs Street in Port St. Lucie, was sentenced Friday to 45 years in state prison after pleading no contest to the second degree murder of a Vero Beach man in October of 1986...

    Smith offered to pay Jacob $20 in exchange for a ride home from a 7-Eleven store on U.S. 1 in Fort Pierce during the late hours of October 7, 1986.

    After Jacob demanded more money to buy crack cocaine, Smith tried to flee from the vehicle -- a 1976 red Chevrolet Camaro -- through a side window but got stuck, according to a police report. Jacob grabbed a knife, exited the vehicle and stabbed Smith multiple times in the arm, chest and stomach. Jacob then took the Smith's money and jewelry to purchase more drugs from a nearby crack house, the report said. Smith's body was later thrown into the nearby canal by Jacob and an accomplice.

    You know he has ****ing family! God people sicken me! The media sickens me! 1 the facts are way ****ing wrong its the nedia people! God damn it! Dont even feel y'all deserve the damn truth running to assumptions! His role his role pay attention! He played a part but he did not throw the guy in the water hours later in fact he instead of confessing someone elses sins only confessed his and in doing so he has been demed a monster and its sad! Yes he played a big part yep he did stab the guy but it didnt kill him. Infact hours later the guy was still alive in bushes someone who was the main accomplice in the stabbing (after David attacked my uncle1st!) And i wont name names but the original accomplice went back with his wife, whos confirmed this, and when they did David was still alive..he had crawled off into bushes my uncle wasnt present at that time. When the guy n his wife went back (in fear david would tell) David laying in bushes started to yell for help the guy and his wife then drug and threw David in the water where he drowned to death. Thou my uncles taken the rap for it all because the guilt ate him alive..and in doing so now not only 1 family lost a loved one but ive lost my best friend. And the pains unrealistic. Its so infuriating to see and read all these people commenting when reality is you dont know ehat you're talking about!
    How about his famkly his kids, like me ? What its jus **** him bcuz he made a mistake while under the influence?? Has been clean over 20yrs in doing so saving hundreds upon hundreds of lives, but never feeling by saving all those the one he played part in taking that he would make right until he did confess.
    He was a man of god for over 13yrs b4 turning himself in after no longer being able to close his eyes. This man did one horrible thing and ownes it, hed be angry if he knew i was so angry about these types of comments. Which ill tell hin anyway he is my best friend more then an uncle but like a dad. So please keep in mind these peopme have faily in great pain too..we dont need people who just havent a clue to what theyre talking about adding to it. My heart breaks for David's family and i know they hate us and thats okay but is it really okay to wish or inflict pain upon others just because someone else did at one point..no no the **** its not .mama always said 2 wrongs dont make a right.

    Yes thats the case, he couldnt close his eyes without seeung David..he didnt sleep for 3mos b4 turning himself in. We had no clue. Well 1 family memeber i now know did and sadly hes broken alot of hearts by confessing. But hes at peace with it now. It was something he had todo for him and his sobriety. He had to make right his wrong and for that hes 100% happy serving time for his role.

    No there was no hair linking him to the crime out of the blue he said he was going to get cigs leaving at home his wife and kids and walked in an confessed almost 7yrs later we still cant believe it. He set in county for 5yrs waiting to be sentenced due to the fact that they couldn't find anything linking him still nothing linking him. The case was cold for 26yrs he had turned his life around it was more then heartfelt confession

    Your uncle killed a man and has had time to make amends but this person whose life he ended or helped end according to you did not have a second chance.

    Sorry that you are suffering but your uncle should atone for taking a life. We are all responsible for our actions. He seems to realize that.
