Robert Barnes Arrested In Murder Of Meghan Landowski


Police arrest suspect 6 months after crime:

A Portsmouth Virgina teenager has been arrested on charges that he brutally killed 16-year-old girl.

Police say on April 10th, 17-year-old Robert Lee Barnes climbed through the bedroom window of 16-year-old Meghan Landowski, bound her and then proceeded to stab her several times with a knife. He then left the scene, leaving Meghan to die alone in a pool of her own blood.

A detective in the case has said that Barnes and Landowski were acquaintances of some sort, but wouldn't proceed to detail the relationship any further.

According to this article and his above MySpace profile, Barnes was a pretty good violin player. In fact, two years ago he even once performed for Missy Elliot. His YouTube page can be found here.

UPDATE: Police believe Barnes discussed Landowski's death online

UPDATE II: Barnes sentenced in murder of Landowski

  1. I really don't think he did it. Maybe they questioned him so much and confused him into confessing or he is trying to protect someone or something. I really don't believe that he could kill someone. Robert Barnes is my friend. It just seems so impossible.

    2. Thats the same-exact-identical word for word comment EVERYONE has to say about their sociopathic friends. Psychopaths compartmentalize. They have the uncanny ability to fool & manipulate everyone around them. Thats specifically what sociopaths do. That is what sexual deviants who are predators do! Nobody thought John Wayne Gacy had 33 dead boys rotting away,buried under his house either! Nobody even knew he was homosexual, much less a rapist who tortured and murdered boys. Everyone loved Ted Bundy! NOBODY thought he was a sexual sadist and murderer! He was able to control his impulses around people he knew he had to fool in order to appear "normal". This is why they are master manipulators and mask wearers. The most dangerous kind. I'm sorry to let you down, but you're friend is a psychopath. Not psychotic, but a psychopath. A sociopath. He has a personality disorder NOT mental disorder. He is sane. His personality disorder is no excuse and just a fancy talk to say he has "BPD" (borderline personality disorder). He is 100% fully in control of his actions and sane. Even pulling the ole' "switch a roo" on the Detective, with his gum. Fairly clever, but not enough! He used FEMALE DNA which is what got him caught.LOL! But it showed he knew to try and cover himself whichs proves he was sane, not crazy. I'm sorry but your buddy is one evil son of a bitch.

    3. You don't think he did it? DNA does not lie and when they asked for a DNA sample from him he swapped the gum he was chosen and when the tested it, it was a female's DNA. He was lying from the beginning.

  2. Nothing is impossible honey. People you think wouldn't do these types of things do. And yes, he may be your friend but maybe she said or did something to him that aggravated him. We just have to wait and see.

  3. i know he didn't do it, there is much more to the story that isn't being released to the public. Robert is a wonderful young man and if he is convicted of this crime people will still be in danger because the real murderer is still out there.

  4. I've got to go with the 9:24 anonymous on this one. There's way more to this story than we're getting from official stories. People will be blown away if the whole truth comes out. Right now, we're on track for a second youngster's life to be ruined.

    Why would this boy wait this long to tell the police the vital infomation he is suppose to have. His whole story does not make sense. He surely is involved in this murder in one way or another.

    I don't want to say anything that's not supposed to be released, but I know a touch more than was released. He might have been involved in the murder, but it was not his fault. It's terrible that she got murdered and it's terrible that Robert has to go through all of this. I think even if he gets released, this will have ruined his life. He will have to go to school longer than he should have because he's missing school. He's very smart and very talented. I've played music with him before and he makes it fun. He can go far. I really hope that's not ruined.

  8. If he didnt do it why was his blood at the scene? Ive talked to this kid a few time and hes very arrogant and he thinks hes above everybody which is probally why he was able to walk around everyday pretending everything was fine. The police wouldnt arrest a kid with these kind of credentials if there wasnt rock solid evidence. It would be way too risky for the city and the police department to do so. So no matter how much you think you know somebody know that people will do things you would never expect them to do. Also i got a good kick out of the feeble attempt somebody made to distribute a letter up and down this poor girls street to her neighbors trying to claim his innocence saying he was forced to do this. Its just so sad a kid with this kind of talent would go and ruin his incredibly bright future over something that was probally fueled by teen angst.

  9. " So no matter how much you think you know somebody know that people will do things you would never expect them to do. "


    You think he did it. He just might not have. Most of us really don't know. I'm gonna say what I think. I don't think he did it. I'm still trying to go around finding information about this case. There is so much that hasn't been released and if it was, we would have more of a reason to think he's either guilty or not. There's no way for us to really get all the facts, really.

  10. Im just saying that there must be some pretty concrete evidence. There waqs blood found at the scene that didnt belong to Meghan. We'll see but for now we just have to wait until more information in released.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Ahh, limegreentoaster, we meet again. Here, you are now admitting that he did commit the murder but it wasn't his fault. Again, i must tell you that he waited 6 months to report it...how very sad. and i agree with the anonymous that states there must have been concrete evidence to charge him. so sad that in the other forum you are protecting him and saying he did not do it. but alas, i haven't seen the last of you.

    I've just heard a few different scenarios. I've heard that he was made to do it and I've heard that he didn't do it, but was made to cut himself and hold the knife so his blood and fingerprints were at the scene. I've heard a few people it could have been, like Meghan's step-dad's best friend from high school and some guy who molested her (they might be the same person). I was told it was an adult white male. I just don't know what to believe, but I'm sure Robert didn't just decide to kill Meghan. I just know he didn't do it.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I know for a fact Robert didn't do it. Robert wouldn't hurt a fly, much less commit a murder. There's no evidence against him, unless the blood found at the scene was his, which they have yet to disclose. But truly, if they really wanted to catch the murderer, and if it was Robert, they'd have gotten him when they found the blood that's supposedly not Meghan's. Either the police in Portsmouth, Virginia are lazy and idiotic, or just fucking stupid. End of, blood =/= his, Robert Lee Barnes == shouldn't be charged.

  14. YOU DO NOT i repeat DO NOT need hard evidence to Charge someone with a crime. u need HARD evidence to Convict them.If u needed hard evidence to charge them then there would be no such thing as dropping charges. its interesting how they find his blood 6 months after the crime. after he had been a suspect. even if he was there doesnt mean he killed her. altho he may possibly be involved. i HIGHLY doubt Robert of all people could Kill anyone. The claim to have found "Blood belonging to another" it has not been confirmed that it was robert, from the information released. he has been charged on an hunch. this hunch is strictly procedure. it doesnt take 6 months to scan blood samples. but it can take 6 months to find a new one. if it was roberts blood he would have already been convicted. The chief of police says " the trial is'nt 100% complete" therefore he can NOT be convicted unless the blood is proven his, this supports that assumption that it isnt his blood, because if it was ( Found to be his ) the trial would be over. no other Suspects are being followed. nothing is holding them back but Lack of evidence.

  15. uhh, hello, they found the blood a long time ago which is why they requested the medical records which why i'm sure it came down to him. And DNA tests take a while to come back. Since he has had no prior record, they couldn't just magically match it to him. even in the news reports state that DNA testing is backlogged in the state so it may take even longer. As i said before, they must have something on him or they wouldn't have charged him with burglary and murder. Also, what more do you know about the case? I don't think you know anything more than what the public knows so either stop saying you know more and can't say what it is. If you do know more, then why don't you go tell the police.

  16. i know he didnt do it, there are too many changes in the story, and why didnt meghans friends do anything when she said she didnt want to go home, that she was afraid to go home, to her home. that makes me think that it has been going on in her home for some while. robert didnt do it, and that is that. the police had found evidence that he might not be the killer. and why did the family move all the way to mississippi right after? i understand moving, but that far? was there other family there or were they running away from something? something isnt right, robert knew nothing about the murder until it was on the news after it happned. and were any of the police black? no. only the "convict." seems like a racial thing to me... this is portsmouth we are talking about. i know robert didnt do it, i cant wait for them to find him innocent.

  17. Wow. Youre going to try and bring race into this? How ignorant of you. It seems to me whenever a black person is charged with anything the race card always gets pulled which is bullshit. Black people are capable of commiting murder, i mean i hate to break it to you. Ive never one heard any white try and say theyre getting blamed for something because of their race. I understand that all of you who were Roberts friends dont think he is capable of something like this but you really need to broaden your perspective on life and realize that the pope is capable murder. I cant wait until he is convicted even though all of his ignorant little friends will still be preaching that hes innocent. Get your heads out of your asses, get a reality check, and leave race out of this. The world isnt out to get black people.

  20. Think about it, the reason there are so many stories is because these are two high school students and so of course there are a million rumors going around and the police are not going to release any more information about the case until the trial or what not. They cannot just tell us all about it because it will mess up the trial. I do not know for sure if this young man did it but come on... get over trying to say he did not do it for sure because you are not him, unless you were at the scene or with him at the time of the murder you cannot say he is innocent. Stop with all the rumors!

  21. Wheres the evidence? are you stupid? his blood was at the scene, he had a cut on his hand that would fit the description of a stabbing, hes admitted to at least being there, his own orchestra teacher said he was involved but would not go to the extent in saying how he was involved. Even if he didnt kill her he should go down because he never reported it. Think about this poor girl and her family before you think about your stupid little friend. Hes a piece of shit and he always has been.

  23. Robert was my friend in high School and so was Meghan.
    She was in the Magnet program for dance and he was in the magnet program for music at Churchland High School.
    I was also in the magnet program with them hence the reason I know both of them.
    I rode the bus with both of them before Robert and I went to an after school music program; "Porte Town Magic" she would get dropped off at her home.
    Robert and I spent more time with each other because we were in the same programs.
    I can say with the utmost confidence that he is not capable of a crime this heinous, nor any other crime.
    He and I are good friends and with information from not only the tabloids but also some other close friends of his and I; I can say in honesty that I believe he was set up.
    There is some information that no one really knows that I heard from a friend of mine who says that the Father of Meghan admitted to knowing who the true murderer was and he told her that it was his(her fathers) friend.
    With the story thus far I am sure you have been reading.
    Meghan was supposed to go to court to testify against her biological fathers friend in court, but she wound up dead the day before. Meghan and Robert were friends in High School and he is not the type profile to ruin every opportunity he has to just flat out kill someone.
    Her friends admitted to knowing that she was afraid to go home that day. Apparently someone called Robert to come over and comfort her so that she wasn't alone. I believe the real murderer was there already and framed Robert.
    Robert is a bright kid and I don't think he should be convicted of such a gruesome crime.
    Some of my friends are putting money together to get Robert a good lawyer.
    He doesn't deserve to go through this because of someone else's malicious crime.

    I visited Porte Town Magic last year which is held at Woodrow Wilson High School. And I saw both Robert and Meghan.
    It was surreal to find that two weeks later that she is dead. And that six months from that Robert is being convicted of this crime.
    I can honestly say that I believe he was set up.
    My heart goes out to her family and his.

    I really don't think that he would give up all that he has
    accomplished to kill another human. There is no motive, and no explanation.

    As for the murderer whom I presume to be her fathers friend. I believe it would be more a likely case because he was going to be testified against the next day.

    He was her friend.
    He was not her killer.
    Only in time will we all know what the truth really is.

  26. No one even mentioned Meghan's family and what they are going through right now. They have to sit in a court room and hear how their daughter was murdered. Think about how they feel. Just because you know someone really well doesn't mean that they won't harm anyone. You get them mad enough, who knows what they'll do.

  27. ok. i am the child of two portsmouth police officers. my name is not being released so neither myself nor my parents can get into any trouble over this. someone told one of the officers about an "acquaintance"-type relationship between robert and meghan. they would not be any more specific about this relationship. friends of robert's used to joke on him when meghan went to churchland high school saying things like "look robert, there goes your girlfriend", referring to meghan. He would take offense to this (or so it seemed, it was always thought this "offense" was actually a defense mechanism because we all thought he did like her). anyway, meghan and robert lived near each other and the police heard about this "friendship" of sorts. they had unmatched blood found at the scene of the crime. when they heard of the connection between robert and meghan, they immediately accosted robert and had his blood tested. it was a perfect match to the DNA results collected last april. blood is pretty specific...i don't know how you could "set that up". secondly, the day after meghan was murdered, robert came to school with a huge bandage over his arm. when asked what the bandage was covering, he replied, and i quote, because i was there, "don't worry about it". and he smiled. a few days later, the bandages were removed and they were cut marks. jokes went around that he cut himself, etc. etc., typical high school crap, but nobody connected those slash marks to meghan landowski's acts of self-defense. now you people can get up here and talk all the crap you want about robert being innocent, and "such a nice, sweet guy", but please, wait until you actually know the facts. most of the time when a murderer is convicted, people were not aware the entire time they knew him/her that this person was a murderer or capable of murder. the response is generally, "I never thought he would do a thing like that", or, "they seemed like such a loving couple". nobody expects these things people. get over it. if the evidence comes out to be coincidence, fine. but until then, stop talking about a police department and a case that you are completely unknowledgable about.

  28. dna does not take 6 months to come back, especially in a high profile murder caseliek this hell dna test for paternity can take a week so with 2 samples of blood it would not take 6 months. Something is not right Robert took the fall for someone else

    ReplyDelete
  29. Uhh....they just arrested him about 2 to 3 weeks ago and they just got his blood or something to test it. They didn't have Robert in their sights until recently when they had requested the medical records from the hospitals in the area. So yeah, i agree with you on it not taking six months but remember they just arrested him too. Also, I feel for the loss of your friend. That is no way for someone to go out. And I pray for you and her family.

  30. I like how people think they know law enforcement and thier job. He has very strong evidence against him but people who know him are going off emotion rather than the big picture. No police department would arrest a juvenile who is minority just to point a finger, if you believe this write a novel, I'm sure to find it in the fiction section of a local coffee shop. He will spend his life in prison and then in hell.

    ReplyDelete
  31. one - robert didnt confess, if he had they would have had it in the news conference that he did.
    two - hospitals dont keep track of your dna, only time they do test ur dna is if theres question of parents in a child or if its requested, they dont jsut keep your blood in a vile frozen if u get in trouble so the crap of them asking medical shit is bs.

    they person who said both their parents work for the police is full of shit cause their parents wouldnt be able to tell them shit and them saying that they did would get their parents fired...and yeah one person having 2 parents in the same police department wouldnt be hard to figure out who it is cause u know their monitoring this shit.

    and as for going on emotion i knew robert i wouldnt say we were best friends hell half the time we didnt get along but seeing someone innocent get locked up is bs and that shit happens all the time

  32. I know Robert, and he's a nice, caring individual. I don't believe that he could have ever done something like this. He's peaceful and kind, not a murderer. My prayers are with him, his family, and Meghan's family. <3

  33. I've known of this for so long and I simply can't get myself to believe that Robert did this. I don't think he is the person who would. I really don't. ):

  34. Hey genius they didnt get his DNA from the hospital. they simply saw in records he had an injury that would match that of meghan defending herself in a struggle, which led them to investigate robert and get dna samples from him. Hes being tried as an adult and we'll see her in the next few months what the truth is. So all of the friends to this sorry excuse for a human being can be prepared to be "shocked" when this murderer gets what he deserves.

  40. Meghan's family did lose a daughter and Robert's family has lost him BUT they can go and see him once a week....Meghan's family cannot ever see her again. Ted Bundy was a kind gentle person too when he wasn't raping and killing innocent girls...hmmm sounds familiar. You think you know someone..when in reality you don't know what is going on inside their head. Robert killed Meghan on April 10th and now he has to pay for what he has done. The trial will bring all of the evidence out and everyone will know just how evil and heartless this kid really is. I hope all of the Robert supporters are prepared to hear what their "friend" did to an innocent 16 year old girl.

    ReplyDelete
  41. First, people need to calm down. Everyone is entitled to their opinion.

    Jeffrey Dahmer and Ted Bundy were both thought of as very sweet people who would never hurt a fly. We now know the truth.

    Second, it didn't take 6 months for the dna to come back. It was back a few weeks after the murder. They had no one to match it to until they arrested Robert, 6 months after the murder.

    Third, Robert was interviewed in the presence of his mother so he was not coerced or forced during his interview..in fact, he wasn't even under arrest during his interview.

    Lastly, his dna was found at the scene. If he did NOT do it, he needs to speak up about who did. If he keeps quiet and allows the system to convict him, that is his own fault. If he is "protecting" someone, then he is choosing to go to jail for the crime and that person. He needs to be forthcoming with any information he has. His dna got there somehow..only he can state how.

  47. Robert will not be playing the violin for a very very long time. Go to the trial and you will find out why. What comes out in trial might surprise you...I'm sure it is going to surprise a lot of people! People that may look innocent may not be. You never know what is going on inside their head. It could have been you instead of Meghan.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'd like to say to everyone defending this guy by saying "he was so nice...so sweet...he played the violin so well...", you're seriously only using this as a way to justify to yourself the fact that you were once friends with a murderer. If you really cared about him, you'd be doing something about it instead of arguing and spreading stupid theories over the internet. Instead, you're more worried about YOU and trying to make yourselves feel better by convincing yourselves that he couldn't have done it because he was YOUR friend or acquaintance. The human race is capable of anything - and that includes murder. This isn't an episode of CSI, it's real life, so get over yourselves and let the professionals handle it.

    To Robert's cousin: Yes, it sucks that people are saying hateful things about your cousin and you have to read it. Now, try and be the bigger person and don't go threatening them. Also, learn how to spell. Nobody takes you seriously when you write like that.

Don't you get it?? He killed her...and finally admitted that he did it. Some people just can't handle the truth.

    Oh and by the way....the military guy did not molest her.

  52. I have known Robert my whole life, since I was a little kid. Ive never known him to be the type of guy to hurt anybody, at all.
    Having that said;
    My prayers are with my Bert& his family. :)
    You'll have your day to prove all of those people who doubted you, wrong.

  53. "The Portsmouth teen accused of stabbing 16-year-old Meghan Landowski to death in her home pleaded guilty today to first-degree murder and related charges."

    What part of guilty do y'all not understand?

  54. Watch it.
    I understand every part of the meaning Pleading guilty.
    He only plead guilty because he addmitted to the crime.
    The only reason he addmitted to it was because he was going to get the death penalty.
    Think about it.

  57. I hope he is raped every day in prison. If I could, I would alert every inmate there and let them know that a racist pediphile in among them.

  58. yvonne, you're an idiot. Your cousin confessed and even apologized to the family, although the apology was so fake, it made me want to puke. Your cousin is a cold blooded racist murdere. I hope he suffers everyday for the rest of his miserable life.

  59. P.S. Yvonne,
    Looks like violence runs in the family.

  60. I'm beyond late really commenting this. But as of late I've found myself pondering more and more, and everytime I drive down towards "the scene" I think about her. In my own honesty=we were not friends, she was never nice to me, nor I to her. I now regret being so unkind to her (and no, not because she's dead, but because it was wrong, I was also pretty intolerant of barnes, and I regret that because he very clearly had demons). But to get to the point: he did it. None of my friends no who I really am, what issues I keep under my skin, and it is not hard to keep terrible things from people, and we all have a tell. My tell? I'm pretty indifferent to new people, I'm good at pretending not to care. Barnes tell? His arrogance. I do agree (to a certain extent) that he had strong OUTWARD opinions that he was the best, a more than healthy sense of pride, and I think it was a huge disguise of a natural hatred for people and himself. Underneath this murder it is clear that there was an obsession that revolved around hatred, of which side I do not know. And there is a massive lesson to be learned here, as sad as it is, you cannot trust anyone. Everyone has something that makes them dangerous (welcome to the world). As a closing message: I'm tired of those people who are forever defending his name, and claiming that "I know him, and I know he isn't a murderer" Do you think Megan ever thought he'd be there when she was murdered? I certainly didnt think someone I thought I knew would ever be a murderer, or a rapist, a molestor, drug dealer, theif...this is real life people. Everyone knows someone who is a murderer, or something else terrible. Again, I am sorry for the total outburst but I was reminded today that a young girl was taken out of the world in a brutal way-and it has disturbed me yet again. Oh and limegreentoaster? Your innocence has never ceased to amaze me, but please for the sake of your own saftey, learn to distrust.

  61. I know the lawyer who worked on the case. He had instant messaging conversations talking about how he killed her. That's a confession on its own, not to mention the DNA evidence and his own confession that came later. He-did-it. The end.

  62. No one thought Ted Bundy, Ed Gacy, or Jeffrey Dahmer were capable of doing the things they did. even the people that "knew" them.

    Whenever someone is convected of a crime and some people don't think that person guilty, they suddenly cry "conspiracy" but never have anything to back it up.

    Just because he plays violin and was a "nice kid" does not exempt him from heinous actions.

    Fact of the matter is, he was convicted. No assumptions of innocence, based solely on poor intuition, by anyone here is going to change that. Cold, hard facts will.

  63. co'mon folks, let's stop making excuses for our blk boys/men. we don't want to believe this kid did this horrific crime because he is an ususual suspect (violinist) and he is well spoken and so young. i had a chance to review his statement and subsequent confession and he's guilty. he was smart enough to realize that if he ever wanted to see the outside of prison he better admit to what he did. for all of you who think he's innocent, personalize it and replace meghan's name with your sister's name or your cousin's name and tell me you still feel the same way. because i know the way some people are, let me make it clear that i am a black federal leo.

  64. "he may be your friend but maybe she said or did something to him that aggravated him"



    Say what? No, you didn't just say that. Tell me my eyes are wobbling, and you didn't say it was HER fault....what could she possibly say that would make what WHOEVER did this to her OK???????????

  65. I don't know if he did it or not. I don't know anything. All I know is that this is insane. I've talked to Robert before, and he's just like any other teenager. He played a song from the little mermaid over the phone for me. He seemed so nice. All I'm saying is, weaither or not he..murdered her-it's hard to believe. Not because he was nice. But because it is hard to take in that someone you personally knew may have killed someone. I hope her family is alright, and I hope his family is as well.

  66. oh suck it up. Just because you knew him didn't mean anything, people have different personalities, he could have been showing you a completely different side of himself he did it, & didn't want to get caught, so he blamed someone else

  67. GUILTY!!!!! Rot in jail!

  68. Wow. Okay, seriously read all these posts? How many different stories are there? 100? That just proves to you that you can't go by what people say.
    Secondly, those arguing that he's innocent because it shouldn't have taken so long for DNA to come back.. 1) first they had to catch "the killer"
    2) Then he gave them the WRONG DNA!
    3) Then they have to send it to a DNA lab
    4) Then they have to test along with ALL THE OTHER DNA's they have to test!
    5) Then they have to ship it back.
    As much as the family would have liked to have it back asap.. this case can't be everyone's life. People still have to do their jobs and that means they have other DNA tests to take care of?

    Just because you know robert, are friends with robert, cousins of robert, doesn't mean he is innocent. He was friends with meghan too now wasn't he?

    His story was completely and utterly false! His DNA was found at the crime scene. If it was not robert and the story went as he told then there would be 2 sets of DNA! 1 for Robert and 1 for the real killer. I do believe Robert is guilty.

    My heart goes out to Meghan's family. I hope they are able to continue being strong for each other and cherishing the memories they have of Meghan.

    My heart also goes out to the family of Robert. I hope you all are able to move on and cope with this situation. I do believe Robert was a nice kid, talented and friendly. It is no one's fault as to why it happened.

    People make mistakes. Unfortunately some people make mistakes that are too serious to learn from. I feel as though Robert made a terrible mistake and should be punished for life.

    On the bright side, part of me prays that Robert IS the wrong guy because it's sad to see a 17 - year old in jail for such a malicious crime. All though I truly think they have the right guy.

  69. He did it. DNA does not lie. I don't care how many of you think you "know him". You don't know him.

  70. So, I watched a show called Nightmare next door on ID channel. This was the story they were talking about. I've never been so compelled to actually look up a murder, and comment on a blog. I don't believe that Robert Barnes was cold enough to kill Meghan Landowski, just at the time she's taking a pedophile who has already sexually assaulted her to court. IMO, Roberts story should have been looked into a little further. No disrespect, but murderers are pretty smart when it comes to what they do best. They have plans laid out, pretty much know how to elude Police for some time, at least. Robert a 17 year old boy couldn't even find the right Gender gum for his DNA test I think he plead guilty, cause he knew he was finished. I just pray that I'm wrong and they really did get Justice for Meghan Landowski, and her family. It would be a sad tragedy if they were wrong. That would mean the loss of 2 young lives. Not to mention a killer still on the loose.

  71. Robert Barnes is guilty rapist murderer who deserves to be "slammed in the azz" in the SLAMMER! LOL! What a sick quack job, its obvious he was superior to everyone else with a super ego, and then finally a girl likely rejects him sexually and he cannot handle it...he cannot believe a lower class human rejected him...so he does what every psychotic super human class man would do, stab her 42 times!!!! 10 times in the EYE!!! and Than 12 more times in the back AFTER SHE IS ALREADY DEAD!!!
    I am so ashamed of all these idiots who claimed "He could never do this", "why would he do this, he has a successful life", "he is sweet, kind, and innocent"...all you idiots are ignorant and grow up or you will end up having another "sweet, kind, innocent" friend again...but you better not piss that friend off, ever! LoL. I hope by the time Robert gets out of jail, his azzhole is so loose he cannot walk without tripping over his extra skin hanging down. What a sick freak.

  72. I just watched this on a show called Solved on Netflix,it was titled The Prodigy.It blew me away,I don't understand why he did that to her. What the fuck was going on in his mind when he decided to rape and murder her. This world is a crazy place,shit like this fucks me up. SMH RIP MEGHAN! :(

  73. Just shows you how clueless people really are. No ONE REALLY KNOWS ANYONE! Here's a hint, sociopaths are often quite charming and likeable (Ted Bundy for example) and frequently get people to trust them and like them by imitating human emotions. I've seen the confession video. Barnes had NO reaction to seeing the photos of her mutilated body. He made up several lies that fell apart quickly. He eventually confessed. He just got it in his head to kill and rape someone and thought he could get away with it because of his intelligence. I hope he's getting raped at the moment.

  74. What if.. He did tell a wild story about a masked man forcing him to rape her at gunpoint then cutting his finger to leave dna at the scene. Then let him leave...?? The detectives asked why would he let him leave if he had him at gunpoint? Obvious if the masked male was the navy man who had sexually assaulted her, and was awaiting trial in just a couple months to possably be destroied as a human. I don't understand why the civilian detectives would belive his work friends that the man from the navy was for sure at work that day. They could have lied for him or he could have eluded them in many ways. He could have schemed his way and made up this huge plan to get out of this sexual assault that he was for sure going to get convicted of.Then labeling as an offender. Theres to many loose holes with this. This is probable. This may have happened. It's way more beliveable as motive for this molesting navel personel. They should have exhausted every angel on this because it to a lot of people seems like what really did happen. If it were than the wrong person is in prison.? Why was there a masked white male in dark clothing seen fleeing? Thats why he would have left him alive detectives. Sometimes the truth is right in front of you, but sometimes you may not want to hear it because it's way easier to prove the scam.

  75. There is one thing that should have been proven. Were the phone records checked? Was he called over and asked to come over? At gunpoint she may have been told by her accused molester to call him over. If so, there would have been no reason for him to enter through the window. Was This Looked At?.. I Doubt it. Theres Many more things that could have been sifted through.

  76. seriously,
    what is wrong with all of you
    this is a very tragic thing that happened
    to a beautiful young lady. who had her whole life ahead of her. i can't understand why so many of you are being ignorant.. why worry about the murderer?
    he did it and doesn't deserve his name mentioned....
    think about her family and what they have been going through....
    how would you feel if it was your daughter????
    would you still be saying he was so nice, and kind?
    I don't think so, how does it feel knowing you hung out with a cold blooded killer and that it could have been your sister or cousin or niece that he killed for no other reason except to see if he could get away with it...think about it.
