      Willoughby, OH

My son was murdered in front of the home of a close family friend, with a single stab wound, two hours after the murderer posted on facebook what he was going to do.  Now his  his killer is home on house arrest now! What kind of justice is this? I want to have the bail of the murderer raised. His original bail was $100,00 of which he needed to only produce 10% of that. He only needed $10,000 to get out!! His charges are 2 counts murder, 2 counts aggregated assault, and 1 count tampering. How can he even be considered for bail? House arrest? If this was your baby, wouldn't you expect a high enough bail to keep murderer behind bars? Please help me get justice, not just justice for my son, but also for any victim of this kind of crime. It is not right for the accused murderer to be able to even be considered for house arrest. Are you kidding me? IF ENOUGH EVIDENCE IS THERE FOR A GRAND JURY INDICTMENT FOR MURDER... YOU SHOULD NOT GET TO GO HOME AND AWAIT TRIAL!! ESPECIALLY UNDER THESE CIRCUMSTANCES.... If you agree please sign and share. Email, facebook, anywhere PLEASE.... Mandatory minimum bail for those accused of murder!!!!

      Prentice Dietrich- Smith Memorial Fund

      This site was set up for a few things. First and foremost funeral expenses.. Then the headstone. Which is $2,500.. Then whatever else we can raise will go to Miranda Dietrich and her children.. The loss of any family member is difficult to live with but losing a child in such a manner is incomprehensible..

      I knew Prentice for a few years in public school in Ithaca, he did not deserve this and his murder planned his actions. He needs to be put away.

      I think that this is a complete injustice! My heart aches for this boy's mother and family that have to deal with the pain from this loss. This is a real tragedy, if someone announces on Facebook that they are going to kill somebody and then they take a knife to the person's house and the person ends up dead, that's admission to murder!

      I believe that the man should pay for the people that he has hurt and the actions he proceeded to do, he knew what he was doing and it wasn't necessary what's so ever.
