Comments for: Ormsby’s confession played for jury

  • Anonymous

    Can someone explain WHY the judge wouldn’t have the jury finish viewing the tape?  The judge denied it being withheld from the beginning, they should complete the viewing.  Not just stop where they left off.

      I think that the judge is attempting to limit anything that may result in acquittal, mistrial, or appeals later, and trying to assure that justice will be served. The evidence here is really strong with his DNA at the crime scene and the person who helped him elude being found guilty, and awaiting sentencing. This tiny bit I believe if allowed now could let this fellow to get a toe in the jailhouse door eventually allowing him to walk free. It is all about procedure. The video mentioned in yesterdays news and this one in today’s are two different ones. Dr Tennies will be heard next week, but evidentially due to her schedule she was unavailable to be there in person. The one yesterday (and I think the one you are referring to) was stopped for the first reason mentioned first herein…so that some sort of justice will be served in this matter and he will not walk free.

      • I hope he does not walk free because is he did all of my family and Jasons family are going to be really upset and I think they will try and bring him back to court so he can be finally found guilty.

          My condolences. I don’t think anyone will let this guy go free. He’s not fit to let out no matter what.

        •  I dont thank he will walk free no matter how any one see’s it

          I really doubt he is going to walk free Samantha. The law knows they have their man and now its just about the procedure, signing the papers, and putting him in storage. I am pretty sure that they want this case sewn up tight so as to not ever hear from him again.

    • I agree with you but I guess there are things that they might not be able to show because of things that are going on. I just found out the other day how many times Jesse and Jeff were stabbed and how Jason was killed and I also learned that the police found the weapon. They were not saying if they found the weapon or how they found all 3 victims and how many times they were stabbed.

       They ended the tape yesterday because it was the end of the court day.It says right in the beginning of this article that they continued it today and listened to his confession.

    So what does this kid being kicked by his mother have to do with killing three people?

    Oh, that’s right, everytime anyone does anything wrong it must be the fault of another…please.

      I bet he didn’t get a trophy for coming in last place and now all of the chickens are coming home to roost.

    I am sorry, but more accountablity is needed in the justice system, we need to stop coddling and hold them accountable.  He took 3 lives a ten year completely innocent life included, now he should lose his.

    • yeah he did. Jeffery Ryan and Jesse Ryan was my family and I miss them deeply.

    Newsflash – I suffer from depression was abused by multiple people until I was 12 but I’m not slaughtering innocent people!

    Lots of abused and depressed people on earth(sadly), but they don’t go around killing people.

    wow… what the hell does this have to do with that? re-evaluating facts from 7 years prior to the act(s) of murder??? 

  • I agree with Bushfan there are people out there is this world that has gone through worst and they do not go out and kill 3 people.

  • Actually I agree with everyone that has made all of these comments because everything is so true.

    So many people in the world that experience what Ormsby has experienced…..we don’t go around killing people, we don’t chase a terrified child around his house, stabbing him to death. Sorry- that excuse won’t play for me & I hope not for the jury either.

    This is the reason for his actions, perhaps, but not an excuse.

  • Anonymous

    If he was depressed and abused as a kid, that is too bad, but that gives him no EXCUSE WHAT SO EVER to kill two innocent men and an innocent child. They say he gave the reason  that he killed Mr. Ryan because he was a drug abuser but they have established that after massive investigation and questioning for people that this is something that was not at all true. Once again these are all poor excuses by Mr. Ormsby trying to justify what he did.  My sincere condolances to the family and friends of those who so tragically lost that life due to Mr. Ormsbys inexcusable behavior.

     Anyone that can deliberately murder a 10 year old child, and two men,  has absolutely nothing for feelings at all—-He knew exactly what he was doing, and now some lawyer will try to get him off as being insane–Crazy like a fox!  He was smart enough to try to cover it all up now, wasen’t he!—These people and others like them are simply not fit to be part of society!!

  • the way i see it he grow up just like the rest of us maniac’s and we’re not killing people for drugs well most of us aint 

  • All I got to say is GOOD BYE ! He admitted to planning and commiting 2 of the 3 murder’s and then admitted to actually commiting all 3 of them after he had been read is Miranda Right’s twice. That makes this admitting to multple murder’s with premeditation. No amount of so-called child abuse is gonna make this go away no matter what the psychaitrist’s say. That the child died makes this a felony murder, so either way Ormsby’s done. And as far as the penalty phase is concerned, please. If Ormsby’s lucky he’ll only get 3 seperate 25 to life consecutive sentence’s. But as far as any chance of him ever walking out on probation or parole, well, does anyone really think that any competent Judge is ever gonna risk the public’s safety by letting him out to do his again ? If I were Omsby’s attorney’s I would be seriously getting ready to file a Segregation Order on him for Correction’s. Child killer’s do not do well once they are in General Population and that’s not exactly a secret.

    Like I’ve said before I wish Maine had the death penalty he shouldn’t be allowed to live after taking the 3 innocent people’s lives. It breaks my heart everytime I look up this on here and I just want to cry. Jesse lost his life and he was only 10 and Jeffrey had other children and a granddaughter who now will grow up and not now her grandfather. He deserves to have the same thing he did to my family done to him.

       An eye for an eye until everyone’s blind doesn’t make much sense…Life in prison is probably a worse punishment than death…

     I hate for this to be where to make an example, but this is why you DON’T talk to the police.

  • I still can’t believe I went to church with this guy, and sat next to him in class. I saw him every day in school, said hi. He was a great friend to a lot of the kids there. He was a team player, .. .So, to see this now is a complete shock. To sit here and listen to all he said, is just insane. He took what he thought was right from the bible and religion and twisted it into a completely insane act. The ending was the most shocking, when they said right then and there that he was under arrest for 3 counts of murder. May GOD have mercy on your soul…… Sickening….

    Unfortunately for Thayne, his references to great works of literature doesn’t dilute the fact that he is troubled and sick. Name dropping the greatest thinkers doesn’t make you one. His dramatic cadences are not impressive, they are forcibly constructed and seem trite.
