According to the accident reconstructurist, the young man was beaten so severely about the head that it left indents over most of his skull BEFORE he was hit by the car. If that was the case, how was he able to stand up for the car to have hit him AFTER the beating?

Doesn't the sister of the suspect seem a little suspicious here?  Every time one of the witnesses was brought up she reacted to it.  Is the family hiding something not about the son but the guy they are actively hiding?  What is the connection with the sister and this missing witness?

First of all obviuosly  they dont want the kidt that can prove there son did it on Dr Phil. The fact he wouldnt take a lie detector says enough for me. If your not guilty you would take the test

Most false detector tests involve guilty people. The majority of tests (if conducted by a qualified person) will yield honest results. A person trying to convince of other people of his innosense would certainly want to take the test.

Thanks to doctor Phil this case is receiving the attention it deserves. Roberts mother should be charged with multiple crimes herself and his sister seemed to have a personal interest in the other witness to this crime and maybe a personal relationship with that witness. When a death occurs while the process of another crime is being commited / A felony. That would make all partys guilty in the murder of that person. If robert was taking his friend who left the death threats to sell xtacy to the victim he was committing a felony which in my state whether or not he was driving or not the both of them could be charged with capital murder. I do not understand why the district attorney did not send subpeona's to these witnesses and then a warrant for not adhering to the subpeona's. I hope that Alex's family or the doctor phil show sent an investigater back with Robert and his family to there house and track's down atleast that witness. And as far as the other witness which is related to the law enforcement officer in the town that this happened in, Police stick together no matter what and I hope that if the court system was derailed in anyway from that department that all peoples involved will be brought to justice in this case. Seems to me that alot of other crimes have been commited after the fact by multiple party's and I truly hope that EVERYONE is brought to justice. EVEN though I think doctor Phil misses alot thats going on and I disagree with him alot. He is a great man for bringing attention to this case and for that GOD bless you Doctor Phil.True justice will always come in the end when they meet there maker.

I will pray every night that Dr. Phil looks for these boys and that the police department starts to investigate tempering with witnesses. I do have a question on why Rob cannot be charged every again though???

I am thinking that the Sylvester kid they are hiding is the sisters boyfriend. The sister got all defensive when they mentioned his name. Why??   This also explains how and why they would hide him.  This seemed so obvious to me and I was praying dr phil was gonna ask the sister why she was so defensive of the other kid.

That boy is guilty as sin.  The Mom is lying and badly at that.  The sister is just an angry little girl trying to keep her Mom from saying anything.  But....the truth always comes out.  Those boys will get tired of hiding and and they will show back up and go to the police.  The whole family will end up in jail and lose everything they own all because their drug dealing son is a murderer.  The truth was so obvious.  I feel so bad for the family that lost their son.  God Bless you all.

I couldn't believe Dr. Phil didn't lambast Rob for his drug usage/dealings.  He usually asks guests "are you high right now?" or "when was the last time you used?".  There was obviously something very wrong with this guy.  Rob and his family were obviously lying, covering up and deflecting.  Good luck, Teehee family on seeing justice served for your son's untimely death.  Seems to me this case could use a grand jury investigation.
