The news that two teenagers could be responsible for the death of 16-year-old Skylar Neese sent shock waves through the community.
Shock, sadness and sympathy for the Neese family are just some of the things people said they were thinking when they heard of the news of the charges.
Skylar's father, Dave, said that his daughter and 16-year-old Rachel Shoaf, the teenager who pleaded guilty to second degree murder in this case, were supposedly the best of friends. That's what shocked some people about the crime. Just the thought that 16-year-old girls could commit a murder was enough of a shock to some.
There were quite a few women who said their stomachs were churning just to hear of the charges. Others said that sadly enough, this type of news isn't surprising to them at all.
"I've noticed over time, how dehumanized our girls are. It makes me very concerned about the lack of empathy and rage or jealousy or whatever motivates girls, what's the motivation, drugs or a guy," said Rosaline Flanigan, who is originally from Clarksburg.
"I mean, it's kind of ridiculous. When we were growing up, you were so scared of your parents you would have never even thought of that," said Bob Hayes, of Flemington.
Plenty of people said their hearts go out to the Neese family and even the families of the teenagers charged and suspected in connection with this crime.
