      The friends of Zach are all stunned that someone would kill such a sweet and honest guy. He would have given these guys what they wanted. They did not have to kill him.

    2. Brittney says:

      I know Boone personally and I can’t even believe he would do such a thing

    3. James says:

      I met Boone through an ex-girlfriend and I was shocked to hear about this.
