Truly a great loss for The Valley . ..


The grand jury also indicted Andre Whitlor, 24, of Dickson Street, on two counts of receiving stolen property between May 14 and May 31 in reference to two handguns stolen from Miller Rod & Gun in Boardman.

Appears that he went in front of the same judge at least 3 times. Seems that someone else dispensed the justice that Durkin was not capable of dispensing.

I think its sick that redvert thinks this is justice! Someone being shot and killed because they were arrested before!!! I knew him personally and ya although he may have not been a perfect person and was involved in crime it is justice n he didnt deserve to die. I see that you have left 924 comments on vindy.com....wow maybe u need to find something better to do with your life than to sit on the computer and to give your inappropriate opinions.

And the crime wave continues. People need to be more involved or the killings will never end. Enough is enough.

You live my the sword ,you die by the sword,as it is with Andre Whitlor.

@Ytown girl,it's not normal to wear a bulletin proof vest ,unless he was involved in some illegal activity.I don't have any bulletin proof clothing in my wardrobe.

I have a bullet proof vest in my house, and i am not involved in any type of illegal activities.
I wear it when i go hunting, cause i do not trust other irresponsible hunters. I also wear it when i when i walk the streets, with the neighborhood watch
Just cause you own or wear one does not mean you are doing things you are not suppose too.

These guys are just soldiers in a war of their OWN choosing. There is no justice or retribution in such matters ... it is all in the game. Soldiers die in wars that is just the way it is. These boys know that the moment they choose to participate.

Ytowngirl, if you lay in a bed of thorns you will get stuck! I cannot say that I am surpised at the outcome of Andre's life but it is a shame that parents are failing to break the cycle of crime. Best of wished to Andre's family!

Msndre I been up all night thinking about Andre. Im so sorry for you and your family.I met him thru a mutual friend 2 yrs ago n we used to hang out alot. It made me sick to see how some people (with nothing better to do) acted as if this was deserved because he has been arrested! Noone deserves this and Andre definitley did not!! He got me a tattoo one year for Christmas...we got them together...it means strength and every time I look at it I think about him and about that smile and I know you must be missing him horribly so do not take into consideration wat any of the inconsiderate people are posting on here. Just know that he touched my life and im sure many others and that he will truely be missed!!!

How many homicides does this make this year? The Vindicator used to provide a running count under the previous mayors. It is tragic that another person is gunned down in Y-town however, he appears to be far from an innocent or did I miss that he was shot in his car outside of a church?
