“I am a Christian, but for what she (Jennifer Long) did to my boy, I hope they pull every bit of hair right off her head,” said Tyler Gardiner’s dad.
“She tortured him. She cut him first. When the grandfather arrived, he didn’t even attempt to get my son. Unfortunately, he was cut, but Tyler died because he (Tyler’s grandfather) never attempted to get my son,” added Dennis.
“Everyone in that d— area is a coward. They never once attempted to help a helpless young boy in the presence of a crazed adult woman brandishing a knife,” Gardiner continued.
