    A dispute within a brothers family should just stay within the family. no body else’s business

      I agree. A guy should be able to kill his father without the media or the sheriff’s office releasing any details. I mean really, who’s business is it anyway?

      • Chop on February 2, 2017 at 3:25 pm

        Sorry about being so hard on the Dorff’ . Other than all the killings, gangs and out of control crime, Waldorf is a great place to raise a CRIMINAL!!! Fo’ reals!

    Big Dookie, any comment?

    Now the question remains was he flown from his injuries in the accident or from the 5-0’s apprehension..

    • Anonymous on January 31, 2017 at 9:28 am

      Who cares? Only thing that would have made this better is if he killed himself in the accident and saved us taxpayers the burden of footing his bills for the rest of his miserable life.

  8. Joe on January 30, 2017 at 10:47 am

    He killed his daddy cuz daddy bred him to look sooooooooooooooo F#%&&^ed up!!!!!!!! God-DAMN!!!!!

    Wow, Patricide. Don’t see that everyday. Since we don’t have the death penalty in Maryland this guy needs to be locked up for the rest of his miserable life. If he did not care about the life of the person who brought him into this world he most certainly wouldn’t care about the life of unrelated innocent victims.

    • Pat Bowers on February 1, 2017 at 10:23 am

      Maryland needs a Death Penalty.

      Cost of 1 bullet… $2

      Costs of a Life Sentence in Prison… $MILLIONS

    We the family are devastated. Thank you for our prayer. My Uncle was the favorite.

    Trump will send the Feds to start handing out 50 lashes if the Waldorf moon crickets get any louder

    • Larry Cableman on January 30, 2017 at 11:52 pm

      That’s some old school stuff right there! Those crickets make s lot of noise and cause so many problems, they seem to infest everything. It’s sad, but true.

      Dats RACISS!!!!!

      But….. funny none the less….

    It is likely that we will never know the whole story here. This young man successfully completed a program for ex-juvenile offenders to gain trade credentials in a program at the College of Southern Maryland. By all accounts he did a wonderful job trying to turn his life around. This is very sad only.

    • TomP on January 31, 2017 at 5:43 am

      Yes, he did a wonderful job obviously

    • Brian on January 31, 2017 at 7:29 am

      But his true colors rose to the top (like they always do) and he made an immediate U turn. A U turn that took the life of an elder and ruined his forever as well. His daddy probably told him NO about something and we just cant have that can we? RIP Sr!

      He did a great job turning his life around. Except of course that whole murder thing. Other than that, he was a great guy.

    • Big Dookie on February 1, 2017 at 8:57 am

      TLeaves:

      A question for you, when you say “By all accounts”, you didn’t account for the fact that he’s a murderer, did you?

      It sure would make me wonder about the CSM program you mentioned!

    Tragedies like this leave many victims. Our prayers go out to Mr Bell’s widow/mother of his sons.

    If there is anyone that has seen and/or heard any information about a girl employee being attacked by two employees (female&male) at california, md walmart back in June 2016. At a register when trying to figure out why female customer wasnt paying…..please, reply. Thank you!
