I went to highschool w/ Misty, as well, and while I am very saddened by her death and the circumstances surrounding it, I have to respond to Christi's comment about responsibility.
Yes, Misty was a great person.
Yes, Misty was sweeet.
Yes, Misty was spoiled.
But, at the end of the day, no one can be involved with any drug dealer for a length of time and not know what is going on. Whether she wanted to admit to it is one thing but denial does not translate into lack of knowledge. And, I totally agree that responsibility needs to be taken, but responsibility needs to be had on both sides. Misty knew the type of person she was dealing with and, from highschool, this was not the first time she dealt with a drug dealer. By no means am I using this as an attempt to put some sh*t about Misty out there, in her death, but while she may have been a victim of circumstance, her "surgeon's daughter" lifestyle did not create a lifestyle where she lived in a bubble of oblivia.
And, lastly, while it may sound good to blame Hack, at least partly, for her death, she allowed him to continue to go to her house. As such, she put herself in harm's way by being involved with a drug dealer in the first place, just as much as he put her in harm's way by taking advantage of a situation.
