I am so proud of the North Reading Police Dept and my husband, Tom. This is just another example of the dedication shown by the NRPD on a regular basis.

Is this comment a joke? Billy Wilson has been a menace to NR (and likely other places) for years. If I drove by and saw him loading a tv into a car in the middle of the day, I would have the presence of mind to call the police.

Some people do need rehabilitation, but that is no excuse for breaking & entering. People work hard for their belongings and should not have to deal with others bad choices...I am glad that they got caught and they need to take responsability for their actions.( addicts or not )that being said I know for a fact that Billy Wilson does not live in North Reading and has not in the past 10 years as far as him being a "manace" how the hell would you know? oh that's right, you don't!

I pray this isnt the same Naomi Everette that just passed away on 10-26-11. If it is the same girl... this is so horrible Anyone know?
Ashley Troutman November 02, 2011 at 05:28 PM
Unfortunately, I believe it is the same woman.
Joe Veno November 02, 2011 at 10:17 PM
What did she die from?

Many people who do this type of activity often go back to their town where they grew up. They usually know more of the area, etc. @Adam, Still no excuse, you break into peoples houses you should be caged like an animal, the majority of people have offered help to people. As we know you can only help people who want to be helped. Majority of the time, prison is the only sobering time these people have.

All right, Adam!!!! This was the first message I read when I woke up this morning, and I know it will be the high point of my day! Keep up the good work. Good things are coming to you. Remember the power of prayer...God will help you...and you will be in my prayers.
Joe Veno July 01, 2012 at 01:12 PM
Keep up the good work Adam

If you don't know how badly it hurts then who are you to judge? Walk a day in their shoes then tell me. People with addiction problems get desperate and do things they wouldn't normally do if they were sober. There's only one true judge and that's God. I knew Billy and Adam when they were sober & they'd give you the shirts off their backs. So, don't judge people unless you know how it is. They are fathers, brothers, sons, & friends. That girl driving is now dead. I didn't know her but my prayers are with her & her family. To Billy & Adam they've been clean for about a year, luv you guys & couldn't be more proud that your turning your lives around, for the last time I hope. Always here for you, Luv ya, --Kerry ;)

I am a family member if the girl who died. She did not die if an overdose and I have an ME report that states that. She needed money and knew at the time she was not going to live much longer. She had drug problems in the past and got clean to late for the two that were with her. I hope you stay clean and live a life geared toward happiness and being there for the ones you love.
