According to some of the comments if this guy wasn't "handsome" this story wouldn't be as tragic for the victim or the accused. Some people are so shallow, stupid and don't know what really matters in life. Sad.

HANDSOME!....Really? You have desperate women connecting and marrying prisoners because their (handsome); These prisoners could be murderers, gang bangers, or even molesters; so it does not surprise me that some of these women would comment on his looks first; It takes a heartless person to stab a man to death; now I'm not saying he's guilty, because after all, there were two other men with him, and the media does not mention their role in the stabbing death of JJ; but I do feel that when Dee Jay got up that morning, he could have made a better choice, after all, he did have a prior acting career; He could've worked harder and pursue his acting career, decided to go to college, and be a better role model, instead of deciding to be in a gang. He definitely had a foot in the door on in his career than our everyday kids out here, and he through it away.

The ignorant specie that used the "N" word.. do you feel better now that you found a reason to use that word...... Plenty of other people have committed similar crimes. You are ignorant and an embarrassment to the human race. But don't worry, you'll get yours... Karma always does It's job. ;)

Lazy journalism is the only thing I have against bloggers. If you do a teeny tiny bit of research you would find an error in your story. Those young men were arrested in connection with this crime nearly a year ago. The wheels of justice are turning, however slowly that may be.

Why in hell does everybody keep saying that he's handsome? That's absolutely irrelevant!! He turned into a gangbanger, and, now, he's a suspected murderer. If he did it, fry his ass. I hope he has a good lawyer.
