I blame the parents.

Thank you for your comments. Most 14 yr. olds are naive and impressionable. It isn't fair to judge her moral status.

HeartsInHeaven

Those posting on this blog are the same perverts and predators that brutally assaulted Kristin's memorial web page. They are the most profound example of the pure EVIL that walks this earth. Let God be their final judge and we will see if they are still laughing at the misery of others.

HeartsInHeaven

An Hero" and "Anon Emoos" say that rape and sexual assaults upon children are humorous topics, and have personally engaged in the attack upon Kristin's grieving parents, assaulted them with profanity, racist slurs, and verbal sexual assaults toward their dead child. These people are a menace to society, and hopefully will find themselves before God on their final judgement day soon. Light pierces the darkness!!

Ginger

To HeartsInHeaven: thank you for your comments and for enlightening my readers as to who the above commenters really are. They are a menace as you have said and their fate most certainly is between them and God.

People who commit suicide goes to hell. Suicide is a mortal sin.

It was Kristen's fault in the beginning. She knew what she was doing. You can't blame the retarded predator. The mother tried to blame Myspace. HA!

Oh but you know what? KRISTEN WAS STILL CONTACTING THE GUY BEHIND HER MOTHER'S BACK!

She gave a sad story to everyone. But she was still writing messages to him. She got what she deserved.

Ginger

Nobody deserves to die that young. Let him who is without sin cast the first stone. Is that you?

HeartsInHeaven

You can't blame the "retarded" predator? He was a 28 year old ADULT who set out to MANIPULATE a young UNDER AGE girl who at 15 has not emotionally or mentally reached maturity. A 15 year old is VULNERABLE which is why weak and perverted predators who can't attract a grown woman prey on CHILDREN ! Kristin was a VICTIM !! Only a child molester would say otherwise. Psychologists will tell you that the predator can begin to control the victim's emotions over time . . .Which is what happened to poor Kristin. "She got what she deserved??" You are EVIL and totally void of compassion. Are you "An Hero" or " "Anon-Me-Ass?" Still lurking in darkness!!

Krissa

The thing is, she kept on contacting him. she knew what she was doing. after her mother took away her computer, Kristen emailed him over by phone and on the school's computers.

i don't think anyone can take control over somebody by the INTERNET. it's fucked up what the guy did, but you have to look at Kristen too. she took part of it. the BOTH of them are guilty. Kristen replied to the molester and kept it going. didn't Kristen even know what not to say to strangers that are older than her? apparently not. her mother should have knocked in some common sense in her's and Kristen's brains.

and no, i'm a 'An Hero'.

Carol

Seriously though. I'm 14, and I would never do that! I don't have a myspace tho, only livejournal.

THe thing is, with the amount of info in the world, to call a teenager in the western world a 'victim' is slightly BS. Because I know what I am doing, and I have control over what I do.

What I believe is that the parents were too hellbent on finding justice, that they probably didn't get any counseling for their little girl. They probably didn't even think of that. She was a psychological mess, who may not have recieved treatment for her mental health. I believe THAT is where an investigation should take place.

However, the guy who raped her(because she obviously didn't want it) needs to get WAY more time for his part. He not only raped this girl, he spoke to her afterwards, causing even more emotional anguish. For his part, he should be taught a HUGE lesson.

Ginger

Carol, you bring a smile to my face. You are refreshing and certainly know where your head is at. Keep yourt head on straight and thank you for your comment and for visiting my blog.

Ashley

Kristen was not a whore. Far from it in fact. Kristen was one of the most amazing people that I have ever met and I miss her so very much.

Ashley

Yeah, um...

To those that say that "she got what she deserved" need to go talk a walk alone and think about what you just said.

I don't know if you have noticed, but her family and friends frequent this site.

Don't judge those you don't know.

Ginger

Ashley, I am so sorry that you lost your friend in such a tragic way. Thank you for defending your friend and perhaps helping other readers to understand that Kristen was a victim and not to be blamed.

Carol

Perhaps an apology is in order. I'm sorry if I offended anyone. Maybe I was angry at the time, but the fact is that she's gone now. Nothing, no blame, no judgment, no amount of justice can bring her back. Trust me I empathize with the situation the family of this young girl quite well enough. But it is because I do empathize with the story is because I spoke that way. I don't take back what I said, but I hold no resent for anyone. Cause blame and punishment alone won't force anyone to learn and be sorry for what they did. But those are just my two cents. And what I say doesn't really mean much, but knowing that her family frequents this site left me sorry for attacking them, when I don't really know them, and probably bringing more grief. And for that, I apologize. It also makes me angry at the previous comments, 'an hero', and such. Shameful.

I just hope this tragedy just really makes girls--and boys, as the situation seems--my age think very carefully and protect themselves. Because you don't need the internet to find someone worth trouble, and have it end up horribly wrong.

Ginger

You spoke what you felt, but it is nice that you are considerate of Kristen's family at this point. Thank you for revisiting my blog and for rethinking your honest comments.

HeartsInHeaven

There are some that will continue to place blame on the young and innocent, such as Kristin Helms. Kristin was on the wrong web page at the wrong time where a PREDATOR was lurking. She was an excellent student, in sports, an unbelievable award winning artist and at the top of her class in biology. I worked from home for 18 years to be close and available for ALL Mom responsibilities and told both of my children that I loved them every day. Kristin Helms was NO Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton or B. Spears type of girl. She did NOT drink or drug and it was NOT in her system when she passed away. She was only 15 and emotionally MANIPULATED by a grown 28 year old man who took advantage of her youth and emotional vulnerability. That's why there are laws to protect children, in an effort to deter these sick child predators. It is important to speak out so that other young people and parents will take in the emotional impact of a tragedy of catastrophic magnitude, which will resonate unlike the basic statistics that we often hear every week. The intent of this effort is to spare others our pain. Young teens think that they have all the answers, but they don't have the life experience behind them. There are thousands of online predator stories where children are continuously becoming victims, that are not in the media if the predator is not caught and sent to prison. In Kristin's case (thank you Kristin for cooperating fully with law enforcement)the perpetrator was sentenced to 9 years in prison. If speaking out in public helps even one child and family, it is worth all the stupidity and wrong/ridiculous assumptions that are splattered all over the Internet by ignorant individuals that apparently have no knowledge of the facts and nothing better to do. Kristin's family and friends are here because we LOVED Kristin with ALL of our HEARTS !!!Nothing anyone writes could possibly hurt as much as living without our precious Kristin every moment of every day. In Kristin's honor and memory I will continue to speak out regarding "Internet Safety & Awareness" for
as long as I have the breath of life in me.

Nobody knew Kristen as you did and it is sad that you have to defend her honor. It is obvious to any rational human being that Kristen was victimized by a selfish and emotionally disturbed predator. Thank you for commenting.

Shelly

As one of Kristin's many devastated relatives, I can assure you Kristin was certainly none of the terrible expletives you troubled individuals are slinging at her! Apparently, this has hit 'home' w/some of you and maybe you should look in your own mirrors and please, Get Help! And, especially you young people that think you 'know it all' and can resist a silver-tongued predator, guess again - these people know what they're doing and many naive young people, even tho smart & intelligent, can and do, fall victim to these predators! Never in her wildest dreams did Kristin's mother think one of these creeps would get her child! And, haven't any of you done something you knew you shouldn't do, but figured, what the heck? Never dreaming it would get out of hand or end badly?? Fact is, we're all human and we've all 'pushed the limits' - only some of us were luckier than others and escaped without dire ramifications! Judge not, lest ye be judged... is for a reason.

PS: Kristin's 'dire results' may also have had something to do w/the Anti-depressants she was on as a result of the psychological help her mother helped her get! And, as we know, the psychological field is an unsure/unknowable profession and pharmaceuticals can do as much harm as help... but more and more, we're beginning to realize that a large number of people on anti-depressants go on to take their own lives! Once again, judge not lest ye be judged... no one knows nothin' til we walk in another's moccasins...

I have one more 'comment' for the naive person who spews 'people who commit suicide go to hell... it's a mortal sin...' get a life - and a brain of your own! This is a bunch of Catholic BS that the Church feeds to naive, gullible pple such as yourself! GOD IS LOVE... it is only Man's BS that teaches otherwise... best of luck getting over all the BS that was fed to you in your childhood... you're going to need it. Also, what do you think of your Priests now that so many have been 'outed' for the molestation of children?? One might think the same applies to them... something to think about.

Ginger

Thank you for your comments Shelly. Nobody should judge another human being. Others who comment are expressing what they believe, just as you did. We all do not necessarily agree with what they say.

To Kirstens Family, God Bless You. I can't believe its been 2 years and we just figured out this little person was someone we actually had crossed paths with. My husband worked with her daddy and I think I only met her mom once or twice at her home or on a job site when we went to get paid or to meet up with Robin @ a job. I always remembered seeing Danielle with the 2 little kids as I was and still am because we had another little one in our later years. What a shame the sacrifices we make (with no other complaints) to stay near our children(actually we were blessed enough to be able to work at home to be with our kids) so that we can protect them from these sick evils to only find out that one of the things that we have to help us advance in our lives is being used by sick people such as the person that hurt this little girl for what? There is no answer good enough and there is certainly no blame to be placed on this innocent little girl or her parents. That is how we will always remember her-her adorable happy little face in the car with her mommy and brother at one of daddys job sites. And for those of you who have never met the Helms ... KIND, GENTLE, HAPPY, BEAUTIFUL LOVING PEOPLE . The last people anyone should dare to blame for what happened. So sorry for your loss. One day when my husband had talked to her father (they keep in touch through thier work)and he asked how the family was doing and he replied that they were doing good (with the exception of what happened to Kirsten)we had no idea. So my husband never said anything to him about it. We just assumed she had an accident or had gotten over some temporary illness.Our hearts go out to you and your family. And to those of you who are throwing mean, hateful unnecessary words or comments, be very careful, it could happen to you or yours believe it or not you see, we are them and they are us open your eyes! Keep your good work up Danielle Helms and Thank you for that. We have daughters ands sons and nieces and nephews and 4 grand kids that use or will be using the computer as they should be able to do with out us breathing down thier necks at all times because they are good kids and this world is thiers too. These creeps need to know that they will pay the price for what they do or even attempt to do to our kids. If he could find his way here and back home he knew what he was doing , don't insult the "retarded" you comment posters, there is no excuse and only ONE person that carries the blame and he knows who he is.Gods Peace to you Helms family. See you again sometime. She is home now she is safe now she is happy now she she loves you more than ever until you meet again face to face she is at your side always We are Blessed. Ruben & Theresa & Family

Ginger

Thank you for your beautiful words and thoughts Ruben and Theresa. It does all of us some good to hear from those who knew Kirsten and her family. God bless you too!!!
