He didn't get very far. Was the first photo an older one or did he try to change his appearance?

You have to wonder if this is gang-related. I'm sure there is a story behind this.

Social media has this all wrong! She was crying. Beatin up by her drunk boyfriend. Those other guy stopped to help. The drunk kid outweighed the other kid by 50lbs. He didnt mean to kill him. Self defense is what ive heard. But time will tell

In the article it said he was arrested at his residence, which mean he is not homeless .

I wonder if he realizes he has destroyed not one, but two families. They all need prayer.

The article said "a" residence did not say it was "his"

Anonymous said...

No, it said he was arrested at "a" residence, not "his" residence. It doesn't mean he lived there.

Anonymous said...

The article said he was arrested at A residence, which means it was not HIS residence. Could still be homeless.

Were you there and witnessed it? If it was self defense, why did the three of them leave the scene? The other two who didn't actually stab him should of stayed at the scene, if they were not involved. Only guilty people run!!!!

You may want to try to read AND comprehend. It does NOT say he was arrested at HIS residence. It says he was arrested at A residence. SMDH

it clearly says "a" residence

Clearly just shaved his head you can see the parts he missed. Also his new shirt still has a tag on it. Watching way to many crime shows. This is a horrible situation for victim and family.

Who cares what "residence" he was arrested at. Gosh people. A Mother and Father are grieving the loss of their son right now. So sad

They didnt know the boy was going to die. From all reports ive read he wasnt dead on the sceen. They ran because they knew they were going to get into trouble either way. And no i wasnt a witness...but the point is there are 2 sides to this and this other guy is already been passed as guilty. If he is proven guilty he deserves the full extent of punishment the law allows.

Anonymous said...

So what if he was homeless. I'm sure the victim didn't make him homeless. Check with his parents on that. Being homeless is not an excuse to stab someone to death. He has control issues that will be dealt with when he gets that orange jump suit.

The girlfriend has all the answers

Anonymous said...

Actually this is false as his girlfriend and Seth posted pictures together 10 minutes before so if she was getting abused why would she post a pic and say she loved him???? And she went to the hospital when he was pronounced dead and gave a report to the police. Get your facts straight. He’s dead. No rumors needed: cannot get him back.

Every time I have had to defend myself, I always ran to the closest frienda house and altered my hair, clothes, etc. Self defense 101.

You can't be that stupid, or maybe you can. "They didn't know he was going to die"? They guy stabbed him, obviously near a vital organ because he did die, what did he think was going to happen? "They ran because they knew they were going to get in trouble either way". Refer to the 3rd sentence in this comment. Only one guy stabbed him, the others didn't need to run. If the "girl was crying and beaten up by her boyfriend", and they stopped to help, why run? My God, who ever you are, wake up!!!

If that happen to me (pick either story) I would have run too and I'm 40 something. I may have turn in myself but I definitely would have removed myself for that obviously dangerous situation. Sorry but, running ≠ guilt

They are over 18. That is considered an adult.

Because people who are abused oftentimes stay with their abuser. Oftentimes appear loving to keep up appearances. Let me be clear. I am not saying that the young man did anything to his girlfriend. Just responding to the above post in general terms.

Read the office police report. Statement from girlfriend was they were fighting. The 3 boys did approach her to see if she was ok. She knew one of the 3. Her boyfriend assaulted the cobey guy then after assaulted the micheal guy then thats when cobey stabbed him. He is going to get charged with involuntary manslaughter.

He didn't mean to kill him? Stabbed him in the back and the chest, but didn't mean to kill him. You stick with that story, HOMO, you stick with that story.

We need Cobey to get the Death Sentence.

By the way, your grammar is symbolic of students from Wicomico County Public Schools.

Cobey Mishner's family was already destroyed. His mother, Sarah Turkington, is a rabid Trump-hating, Bernie Sanders Socialist, Jake Day lover. And her Facebook page is down along with Cobey's.

18 is still an adult, get over it! And kids know WTF they are doing when they murder someone.

This Piece of $hit wasn't so intellectually and emotionally immature that he didn't know what he was doing when he shaved his head and ditched his glasses to change his look while hiding. You are an idiot!

Exactly. Sounds like this may have been his mother, Sarah Turkington, posting this or maybe one of her liberal friends like Joni Simpson, Jake Day, Chuck Cook, Sarah Halcott or Chris Eccleston.

Read the police report? Tell me where you saw the police report? Cobey Mishler murdered Seth Abbey, bottom line.

Anonymous said...

At most voluntary manslaughter. Doubtful a jury convicts on murder 1 or murder 2 - no intent at all. Abbey was clearly upset his girlfriend was talking to other boys and assaulted a minor and the Mishler adult. I don't know if that justifies using a knife, but I could understand using a knife when a more athletic + bigger bully is beating the living daylights out of you.

Death sentence for protecting yourself? Yeah, seems you have it all figured out.

I hope the lawyer who gets the girlfriends case convinces her to do the right thing and tell the truth.Exactly what happened.Not "I can't recall" or worse yet bending the facts to excuse her own actions and condemn the assailant to life in prison.Just the honest facts to the best of her recollection.

The girl was not being assaulted, so where is the "protection".. plus, the stabber was not the boyfriend..
