  1. It’s really sad that her family would be willing to let go of the idea of Jimmy murdering their child/sister all because they refuse to admit she could have slept with a black man. 😔 And someone doesn’t just become a violent rapist, it’s been in them so Rodney seems to be a scapegoat. At first no one could prove she was seeing Rodney and then someone came out with info and they still don’t believe it. Down south ignorant thinking.

  2. Omg, it is so obvious Jimmy killed Stacy. He made a copy Stacy's mother car keys.

  3. Rodney Reed’s DNA is connected to 5 Rapes, including that of a twelve year-old. The Details are so brutal that You Tube has prevented me from using clinical terms to describe them. The Statute of Limitations never expires in cases involving the brutalization of children. Reed’s attorneys shake him loose from the murder he committed, the state will come right back at him with the charges related to the cruelty he inflicted on a young girl.

  4. Rodney Reed did NOT do it.
    Consensual sex = No motive
    (sex that she was bragging about)
    Jimmy Fennel killed her
    Being cheated on = Motive

  5. " They talked & talked "..
    Translated = They had sex & more sex..!! 😂😂😂

  6. I definitely believe Jimmy did this to her.

  8. This jimmy guy looked way older than Stacy was at the time.. she was 15 and got pregnant? He looked like a 35 yr old wife beater. and the mom was okay with that because he shared her ‘Christian values’, you’ve got to be kidding me. What else can you expect from these Bible Belt southerners, oh dear. My heart goes out to the mother for losing her daughter in that cruel manner, I will never understand how humans can commit such atrocities.

  9. My heart goes out to her mother.
    But I do believe that Jimmy did it.
    The mother buried her in that wedding dress to support the narrative that she wasn't in a consenual relationship with a black guy. Aside from being hurt about the murder ( understandble)
    The mother feels shame/ embarrassment because of the racist views in that little town AND the hurtful church gossip about her daughter being promiscuous.
    Even if in her heart of hearts she knows that Jimmy did it, but she is choosing to hold onto that false narrative because to her THAT is better than openly acknowledging /admitting/accepting that she was in a consensual relationship with a black guy in that town.
    ( The sisters know it too…)
    So the "wedding dress" was really more for show to quell the gossip and try to keep the rumors at bay. She was already in enough pain.

  10. Do I even wanna start watching this? I already know ABC will not post the conclusion videos 🙄

    By design of course, so you’ll wanna sign up for the paid app. I’m onto you ABC…..sheisty sheisty

  11. I was diagnosed of herpes 2 years ago but no doctor could cure me until i came across Dr Osaba herbal Home who gave me his medicine that revived my life and today i'm tested negative to the herpes and other suspected diseases.I don't need to talk to much about DR OSABA but you too can contact him for any kind of cure via WhatsApp number +2348132322488 or email

  12. When all you care about is a stereotypical Christian life for your children you miss the important signs and signals that show you that they aren’t happy.

  13. These towns always stick together. Obviously the husband did it but hey blame the black dude instead.🤦🏻‍♀️

  14. disgusting law, does not exist

  15. All Texas towns are like this. Extremely backwards, stuck in the 1950s.

  16. Even if he didn't kill stacey..his DNA was in a 12 year old child..nuff said!! An dna was on the woman that he attacked an she got away an that is what got him caught in stacey's case…my opinion is he is not a good person…an wonder if you ask Kim kardashian if she would let north around him..I bet not

  17. I was 1st Baptist as a teen in the 70s. I left them for around 30 years then got on a Baptist Praise Team and after 6 months I desided to leave for a lack of the spirit. I'm non demomiational now . I'm sorry for you're loss. I was never blessed with any children thou I shared an amazing marriage for 16 years

  18. His way or no way? No thank you, no way!

  19. Think about this…segregation was ended only 20 years during the b roll footage. Wow

  20. Why would this girl (Stacy Stites) carry on an affair with this guy- I'm not gonna even get into the black/white situation- THREE weeks before she's to get married?.. A wedding that she would wake up at 3 in the morning every day- because that shift paid an extra 50 cnts/hr- to work a job so she could pay off her wedding dress??..
    An affair mind you with a guy who sexually assaulted a female 6 months before this murder occurred, aaand another one six months after- which is what tied his DNA to Stacy… Not to mention btw he also sexually assaulted a 12 year old girl back in 1989.. Answer that question..

  21. Something else for you to consider. If you die today will you go to heaven? Have you ever lied, stolen, used God's name as a curse word (O-M-G)? According to God's law, you're guilty, your headed for hell, ignorance will not be an excuse… But wait, God loves you, he made a way out for you, God's son Jesus died paying for your sin.

    God so loved the world that he gave his only son that whoever believes in him will not die but have everlasting life. John 3:16
    God is warning the world. End Time prophesies are jumping off the pages of the Bible, plagues, violence, scoffers, government control, earthquakes, fires, floods, people will be lovers of themselves, money, lovers of pleasure rather than God, evil will be called good and good called evil, sexual immorality rampant adultery, fornication, abuse… the ultimate in child abuse mommies killing their babies in child sacrifice (abortion), World leaders are prepping for a One-World order, government, religion (please don’t take a number on your forehead or right hand, read Revelation a number means no heaven, and there's only one alternative) The government is also prepping to have you believe that UFO's are real… Soon the antichrist will come and fix everything, everyone will love him, he will deceive many… then the tribulation will start, life on earth will be horrific. Today if you hear God whispering to your heart please respond before it's too late. Say a humble prayer, pour your heart out to God, receive Jesus as your savior, believe God raised Jesus from the dead, and repent of your sins.

  22. He worked at the police department in my hometown. I remember he would do shitty things there too and my friends and I would talk about him. I was young when Stacey was murdered so I didn’t put two and two together to figure out he had been her fiancé. He sucked! That obviously doesn’t mean he murdered her, but …

  23. I am so sick of these backwards ass podunk types forever hindering all forms of real progress in the world!

  24. Women you dont need a man to boost yourself self esteem, dobit yourself !!

  25. Well didnt you hear her mother and 2 sisters say that they thought he was good for her ? WAKE UP WOMEN !!! Oh anotherove story out of Texas !! I was there for awhile , HATED IT !!

  26. Moved from milwaukee to Bastrop in the late 90s. I'm mexican and the racism I experienced living in Bastrop (working in Austin) was shocking. I have family in Bastrop if you're not well of or church going you're doing drugs small town mentality.

  27. Awee How Sweet is her Mom! " I put off taking any form of chemicals cuz to me her soul was more important than mine!" 💜

  28. I don't really care about the town's history….I find out about happen to a girl….

  29. Her mother is a FUCKING dump truck.

  30. I know many won't agree but I think her mom made her give her baby up & was marrying who her MOM wanted her to..not for love.

  31. This person sheds a vivid detailed light on the entire story up until the trial. More details then the news outlets have shared.
    I watched this story twice on TV, both pretty similar stories told, but this person above gave details that is written proof that sadly a lot of ppl who should not have, really dropped the ball on this case.

  32. It's weird how the mom laughs when she talks about her daughter's killer husband.

  33. Okay so they present all of the evidence of his guilt, but no evidence to the contrary. What conclusions am I supposed to derive from this documentary? Maybe I'm just naive but I'm not convinced.

  34. Rodney Reed, the "poor innocent" had already had some problems with women before being arrested for Stacey's murder…..just coincidentally…:
    FIRST victim: Connie York, a 19 y-old girl, repeatedly struck and raped multiple times.
    Rodney denied raping her and said "yeah, I had sex with her, she wanted it". The jury believed him and he was acquitted….wrongly acquitted!
    SECOND a 12 y-old, he blindfolded and gagged her. He hit her in the head and orally, vaginally and anally raped her (goooosh!) leaving his DNA….and some years later, comparing it with Reed's DNA, it was a match
    THIRD Lucy Eipper, the mother of his kids, abused when pregnant, raped and sodomized in front of the their children
    FOURTH Caroline Rivas, a disabled woman he was dating, raped and sodomized
    FIFTH Vivian Hartbottle, raped, the rapist left his DNA inside her and it matched Reed's DNA
    SIXTH (the first after Stacey's murder) Linda Schlueter, 19 y-old, he stopped her on the same road where Stacey was stopped, he asked her for a ride home and almost forced her to accept. She managed to go out of the car before he could rape her.
    He stole her car and abandoned it near where he lived, as he did with Stacey's pick-up that was also found near where Reed lived.


  36. Oh wait she's from Smithville!!! That's where my family lives!!

  37. My family is from Bastrop

  38. Interracial dating was not really controversial in late 90's TX.

    Immortal legend.
    No matter Flourish or Depression, always common peoples suffering difficulty…..
