    Oh wow, this is a surprising turn. As a huge horse enthusiast, Emily and I have many friends in common on FB and the announcement of her murder was slamming my news feed. I watched the initial media interview with her brother, and although I was curious how he managed to escape unharmed, the hinkey meter never went off. I guess because the "stranger" Riservato, seemed to make such a sensible culprit. Ya just never know....

    I just googled and viewed News Channel 5's 15-minute interview with Ryan Champion.....very interesting to watch. Ryan talks about how odd the shooter supposedly was and constantly hints about the shooting/circumstances.

    I'd love to hear other opinions/thoughts if someone else wants to weigh in. the interview seems totally off to me but I viewed it after I read that Ryan was the actual shooter so it's hard to unring that bell.

    Sorry I don't know how to link a video from my IPad but I was able to find it by googling "Ryan champion video" and it came right up.

    Truly odd....and cold.

    22-year-old Vito Riservato, identified as an acquaintance of Ryan Champion. Champion said Riservato, who he described as "a new person to all of us," tied him and his sister up and held them at gunpoint.

    "He acted erratically the entire time," Champion told WTVF. "He was keeping a real good eye on me and my concern was just for her the whole time."

    The parents returned home during the attack, Champion said, claiming he was the sole survivor.

    Le won't say motive.... "We collected a tremendous amount of evidence from the crime scene," he said. "As things started to come together, we finally developed enough probable cause to make the charge today."

    Sure sounds premeditated to me.

    Police haven’t cleared Riservato of the shootings, but his roommates said Friday that were happy to hear of Ryan Champion’s arrest because they couldn’t imagine their roommate killing anyone...

    Lower said she remembers her roommate as a great person and was shocked when news broke that he might have shot three people. “Vito was caring,” she said. “He’s loving. He was outgoing.” Lower said that she had known Riservato for more than 10 years and he wasn’t a bad person...

    Riservato’s son is currently with the child’s mother in Bardstown, the roommates said.

    From OkieGranny's link above...After the slayings, Ryan Champion wrote on his Facebook page that he “cried so much (he) dehydrated (himself) that day” and still gets weak talking about the incident.

    This guy is a real piece of work.

    I watched most of his 15 minute interview. He's good, really good! He must be a psychopath to give a 15 minute interview and stay so calm. What a piece of work. Can't wait to follow this one.

    According to a slew of FB comments and comments on the local news stories, many people in this area thought that something was "fishy" with his story and his actions and demeanor following the murders. I don't know how to link on here but you can look at local news outlets, WKDZ radio, and WPSD- News Channel 6, on line and their FB pages to see. No one was really surprised when he was arrested. I'm not sure what I can put on here without posting a link, but look for the interview with his roommate and also comments concerning a woman on FB that was friends with both he and Reservato. This person refers to Ryan as "bubba" and she reportedly posted something very interesting (and startling) while he was in the hospital and then deleted a few hours later.

    Wow. Sounds like Riservato may have been involved in some way but then got murdered and blamed. Roommate talking about how Riservato said someone wanted to pay him to kill someone. He left his cell phone home the day of the murders, telling people he would be home in a couple of hours.
