Coming from a complete third party in Texas, I feel the need to point out that all of the arguing in the posts isn't necessary. This site was a dedication from the Tamburello's to their son. Can you blame them for their disdain toward Kyle and the other perties involved? Their son has been taken from them forever. They have no chance of getting him back. Kyle still has the chance to come out from behind bars and fix his bad reputation, since that's what a lot of you seem to be worried about. It matters not what the Tamburello's say about Kyle. If you knew him personally, good for you. But you should be ashamed for coming on a site dedicated to Vinnie to slander Vinnie or his family. Create your own site for Kyle if you wish to slander. To the Tamburello family, I am extremely sorry for your loss. I hope that with each new day, the pain becomes less and less of a burden. Just know that your son is in a much better place, and I hope that brings peace to all of you.

I can't believe what your family has gone through at the hands of Robert Sand and the judicial system of Vermont! It was very hard to read through your site. I lost a loved one to murder and understand your pain and anguish. But in our case justice was swift and honest and the men are now serving lengthy jail sentences. I am so sorry you and your family have had to suffer so much. Your strength and will to fight for justice for your son is very admirable. I'm sure your son is very proud of you. I hope that the other people involved are also charged and this long journey finally ends for you. God Bless you.

I came to read this story because I saw CT on TV and he mentioned this life changing event that happened to him. I had to search it. My eyes have been glued to the screen till I finished reading. Im so sorry for your loss. I have never had anyone I know murdered however I have lost the most important person in my life and I know the emptiness left in your heart that you describe. It never goes away. I cant imagine having lost your dear son in this matter. I am amazed at your determination and am proud even though I dont know you, that you fought and stayed on top of this day in and day out. Many would have quit not knowing where to turn after so long. Reading this story helps me believe there are still good people out there in this tough world. The description of your families emotions made the reader understand and feel what you were feeling it is so real. My eyes teared up reading just thinking of the feelings your family must have felt all those times. Brings my own feelings of loss surface, I feel your pain. I feel you are good people because you did say something real that some dont see. You talked about no winners on anyside and although it may seem the end of the world to Kyle and their family there is a brite side to their story and that is that they have him here. It may be hard for them to see that or maybe not but its true. No matter what its all hard. I hope your family finds the strength to stay strong and finds piece. We never forget the people we love and it hurts forever to know they are gone. No one should ever have to endure the pain of losing anyone no matter what. You and your family are an inspiration and appear to have acted with dignity throughout such a classless journey. God Bless

This is an unbelievable story, I am so sorry to you and your family for your loss and the heartache you have indured since Vinnie's death. You never truly come to know the injustice out there until you read a story like this. I am so happy that justice was served! It will never become easy but everyday you remember will keep Vinnie alive within!!!

My heart goes out to you all. I came across this today and have not been able to stop reading your words. I have cried today for a man whom I've never met and I have felt wrecked inside for a family that has suffered a tragic loss made worse by people placed in positions of power that couldn't be bothered to do their job. Your strength to fight for justice for your son is admirable. No family should have to endure what yours has and I pray that the people that were a part of that will pay dearly. May you all one day have some type of peace in your heart.

I was very sad to read about this today. Your poor son was literally lured to a fight, by a bunch of (what sounds like) lowlife rednecks. What made it worse was when I read the message left on your message board by the Bolaski brothers. "Don't bring a knife to a gun fight?" It gives satisfaction to know that he will rot in jail for the next twenty-years of his life. It unfortunately came at a cost that was far higher than any parent should have to pay. I'm so very sorry that you have to live with the loss of a child...

Great point about Griffin filing motions and billing the state. But at least he couldn't convince the jury that this was "the clearest self defense case you'll ever see". It was a clear case all right...but for the state. And what will it take to bring charges against some of the other thugs from Springfield? I hope this forum will let us all know when creepy Tim Arbuckle is in court (for this case, as opposed to his MANY other offenses, such as DUI, assault, etc.) I don't mind too much paying for Bolaski to have 3 crappy meals a day as long as he's in prison, hopefully with a new "girlfriend", who's not a girl!!

Money pit

I hate to say this but being in the court system I can tell you the taxpayers of Vermont pay for everything for Bolaski from now on! Motions, appeals, everything! Griffin is loving this. He soaked us for the last 3 years and now he will soak us for the next 20 years. I can tell you he will file frivolous motion after motion after motion in order to soak the state. We're his money pit. Tragic but true. Griffin is a flunky public defender who has hit the lottery with this case.

I agree Vermonter and anonymous. What does Lavoie being sarcastic have to do with the evidence that was presented? All of Bolaski's witnesses were proved to be liars. What is the sense of a new trial? The evidence is the same. Who the Bolaski's should be going after is the one that started this whole mess, Tristan Blanchard. He turned on Bolaski in the trial. But they are all guilty. They should all be brought up on charges including Robert Sand who was a co-conspirator in the cover up of a murder.

SO the defense says Bully Bolaski deserves a new trial in part because the Prosecutor used sarcasm. Lavoie also presented evidence and eyewitness testimony that showed Bully Bolaski shot Vinnie in the back when Vinnie was in retreat!!! Yes, Lavoie called Blanchard a liar and Blanchard admitted he was a liar. Bully Bolaski and his brother and their buddies are thugs and they got caught for murder. I still pray that others will be in court for their significant roles in this sad , senseless death. I don't think Kevin Griffin is billing the Bolaskis...he is also a public defender (you can be both private and public in Vermont). I believe he is Bully's PUBLIC defender. I hope the Valley News will do a story on how much the public has had to spend SO FAR to defend the bully/convicted murderer. Justice has been served on Bolaski...start the clock while you spend at least 20 years in prison. He got a fair trial; live with it.

Kate, you're right. He doesn't say anything about any evidence that was presented. The evidence is too strong. Where was his defense in the courtroom? The jury had the option to go with manslaughter but didn't because of the evidence not because the prosecutor called Blanchard a liar, which he admitted he is! Griffin is just wasting the tax payers money with more frivolous motions so he can soak the Bolaski's for money.

Cannot believe that (Kyle Bolaski) is asking for a new trial! Just read it in the Valley News published on June 17th! He deserves to be in jail 20- life if not worse! Doesn't belong out and about ever ever again! As far as I am concerned Arbuckle and anyone involved including the DA deserve the same! My deepest deepest condolences to the Tamburello Family and Thank You for trying to clean up the trash in Vermont and making it a safer place for our children! RIP Vinnie!!

Randy- I agree my man. The whole situation just illuminates how white trash Vermont is and how convenient it is for one to completely manipulate the system. Bolaski is balding and in prison. His gangly goofy ass brother and friends should join him as should Sand. They all broke the law. This is a complete disgrace. He walked around for 3 threes when he should of been in prison. Where else can you murder someone in the public sphere and get three years grace? Not even a USAF soldier in Iraq or Afghanistan can do that. It doesn't happen in Eastern Europe or Southeast Asia. This family isn't the Kennedy's. They are just a product of their environment. Springfield, VT. When I viewed the online news video, Bolaski's defense said he is the true victim, losing three years of his life to legal wrangling. Obviously dude just is a worthless individual. So are his accomplices, they all need to be brought to justice. I hope the victims family never gives up. I'm proud of you guys for your courage. Stay Strong!

I just finished reading day 2 of the trial. I can't begin to imagine how hard it was for you to write the details of the coroner's trial testimony. To read what happened broke my heart. I can understand why it has taken so long. Your courage and strength is commendable. I hope that the other people involved don't get away with their part in your son's death. District Attorney Sand should not be in office!

I never thought my husbands best friend would become one of my best friends but after spending lots and lots of time with Vinny to know him was to love him. He became a big part of mine and both my kids lives and we all miss him so much and think of him daily although nothing in this world can take away the pain of his loss I am glad that his parents and family can rest alittle easier knowing they fought for justice. We love you Vinnie and you are forever in our hearts xoxo

Please let's all hope that Ucci, Blanchard and Arbuckle pay for their actions. And why isn't Corey being charged with shooting off a firearm in a public place? I don't know the law, but I would think it is unlawful to fire a 22 twice around a bunch of people who are relaxing after a softball game. I hope John Lavoie has the time to pursue all those wreckless friends of Killer Kyle Bolaski. They aren't JUST losers, they are partly responsible for Vinnie's murder.

Randy
06-03-2011 8:28:59 AM EST
I imagine Corey had that same option, No one. But he fired into the ground twice and then screwed. Do you remember what the only professional witness Kyle put on the stand said. You remember, right? When they were talking about the Amygdala? If not, let me refresh your memory. When he was asked what would make someone run for a weapon instead of escaping, which Kyle definitely had the option to do, as so many other people did that day. Dr. Eng said a person would only use deadly force under those conditions if it's what that person planned to do. He called the Amygdala 'the planning stage' of the brain. You can go on and on about what a great kid Kyle is, but it does not negate the fact that Kyle intended on making sure Vinnie was not going home that day. Do you remember Ucci's words? You know, the words that brought him to tears? If not, let me remind you. Ucci used the term 'let's end it with this kid' after he ended the conversation with Arbuckle. Coming on this site, or any site for that matter, and defending a murderer only gives the reader a clear example of your character. What happened was planned. Vinnie was hunted, and when that didn't work out, lured down that field for one reason only. You can say that wasn't his intentions, but the evidence says differently, and the witnesses, all of them, including his own brother's testimony, say differently. In fact, the evidence, and testimony was soooo overwhelming that it only took the jury 2 hours to come to a decision. Now, let's talk about that two hours. You remember the jury convened at 4:20pm, right. The court officers had to bring all the evidence to the deliberation room for the jurors to comb over in case there was any doubt. You figure that took fifteen minutes, which makes it 4:35pm. Now, the jurors had to charges to deliberate. One: second-degree murder. Two Aggravated assault. They came to a decision by 6:30pm, fully aware that they were either, setting him free, or putting him away for 20-life. That decision took one-hour and fifty-five minutes. Does that sound like something a jury can pass judgement on in that time frame if he wasn't guilty? Those jurors didn't come to that decision because they didn't like Kyle. They did it to see to it that Kyle couldn't kill again. They did it because they had the God-given right to make that decxision based on the evidence presented. They did it to protect the good people of Vermont.

From what was brought out at the trial they hunted for Vinnie and when they couldn't find him they called and got him down to the field, then they went and got the guns. That is premeditation. The DA's office should be looking into charges against Blanchard, Ucci and Corey. Kyle pulled the trigger but they were just as much a part of it. If they aren't charged we might as well all arm ourselves because the message is clear. Kyle Bolaski is in jail because of what the Tamburello's did not the justice system. If the Tamburello's didn't fight for their son a murderer would still be walking the street. God Bless the Tamburello's!

@ No one: Clearly, nobody made the right decision at MacKenzie Field on 17 Aug 2008, but there's no question that twelve people did on 19 May 2011. You say, 'if your son wasn't acting like a psycho, he would still be alive', but you neglect to say if Blanchard, Ucci, and the Bolaski brothers didn't 'hunt' Vinnie on that day, not only would Vinnie be alive, but Bolaski wouldn't be spending the rest of his life in jail. Lavoie clearly stated, and proved, that what the Bolaski brothers and company did that day bordered premeditation. His own witnesses solidified that theory. Look at Blanchard. Do you actually think he helped Bolaski at that trial? How about Bastion or Ucci, or even his own brother? His own brother got on that stand and saqid Kyle, Ucci, Blanchard, and Arbuckle were the instigators of that incident. You say 'Kyle did not set out to kill him!!!!', but his own friends made it clear that he did!! So, maybe you should do a fact check before coming on here to spew your nonsense.

maybe if your son wasn't the one acting like a crazy ass NUT he wouldn't be sitting in Jail for Murder now WOULD HE ? Nobody to blame but himself for what he did And for anyone who can't see what he did is just as dumb as he was for commiting murder

That;s right. olaski did not set out to kill Vinnie. If he had, he would have been convicted of premeditated murder. The evidence clearly showed he was guilty of second degree murder. There are plenty of folks who must wish they had made different choices that weekend. The Bolaski thug brothers and Jerry Ucci, Tristan Blanchard and Tim Arbuckle ALL have blood on their hands!Poor little Ucci cried on the stand that this has ruined his life...I think the Tamburellos know a lot about that. Rest in Peace, Vinnie

Dear Tamburello family. Congratulations on the verdict. Finally justice has been served. I only recently came across Vinnie Jr.'s website after watching your second oldest son's heartbreaking appearance on TV back in 2009 when he was desperately struggling with his brother's death. I can't imagine the insurmountable grief this tragic loss has caused and the hardship you must have gone through in the past three years. Yet you must know that your undying strength and admirable courage to fight for your son are an inspiration to all of us and in particular to those who are wronged by legal 'justice' in their battle for a beloved one. May you find peace of mind and solace knowing that Vinnie has been redeemed. God bless your family. My thoughts and prayers and heartfelt wishes go out to you.
