After a bit of poking around, the photos are still on DeviantArt, it's just the pages that reference them that aren't:

I think its safe to say that tragedy is always tragic, as tragedy usually is. Nevertheless, although I cannot say I know how those who have been touched by Taylor feel, I can say I can only try to begin to imagine what a hole she has left in the lifes who have cared for her.
It's impossible to determine exactly how cautious one must be these days, and what a person should do in order to filter out the individuals or things we let into our life. The fact that the internet and the network of friends we make in cyberspace has become so involved in our real lives that the differences begin to blur makes the situation even more convoluted than we would have liked.
This is a learning experience that will teach some, and fuel others into proving something like this won't happen to them, and so the cycle shall continue.
Although a sense of shelter, and of safety is now lost for Taylor, I can only hope that those she has left behind find their way.

Regards.

Ok, Now.. This is a horrible tragity and i wish the best for all of the family and friends of Taylor. From all the news articles on this it appears that she was a completely amazing girl :-(

However, to the people who read this and assume she was a myspace target, she was not. There is and was never a connection between myspace and her murder. The connection is, when the family was interviewed they explained that the friends of Taylor left there messages to her, such as "I will miss you" on her MySpace Account.

In reply to sarah's post. Alot of people are starting to get into the swing of myspace, and it has become a reknown space of addaptation. But that does not lead to the oncoming of outgoing events. People just need to watch out for themselves, myspace for me delivers me the communication to my friends from florida, california, and the united kingdom. For me it is just a common communication method, for me it is an e-mail but a motion of ongoing events such as profile advantages and giving a sence of structure and charateristic. I really feel sorry for the girl and her family but i cannot express the frustration of people "meeting" other people from myspace. Its intolerable. Im really sorry again for all this. Its a tragedy and a sadness that can not only be described as "i wish this shouldnt have happened"

i get on alot during that day(when im home atleast) anyways i feel sorry for this girl but it isnt becuase of mysapce it is because she made a stupid decision and met up with this guy. I can admit that i have met some of my friends from myspace but it has only been at like local shows that we both go to or somone that my friend knew way before me (they met from school). But anyaways people need to take more percaution on who they meet and who they talk to!
But yeah like i said i am sorry for this girl!

My 16-year-old daughter started on myspace about 2 months ago without our knowledge. Once we found out and started looking into it we realized she had already given two guys all of her personal information. We would never allow a stranger to walk into our home yet now there are at least two that know where she lives and that she has a younger sister. Now that these guys know I know about them they have vanished. We need to watch our kids! They get so caught up in the fantasy that the Internet offers that they can not see the difference in real and fake.

I feel for the friends and family of this young girl, they will never see who she would have become. May the world be touched by her sacrifice and because of her may many others be protected from the ugliness of the few.

Watch you children...be involved...they really do want you to care.

I've been doing research for an editorial for our school newspaper. I heard about this case. It really is sad.
like, woa.
You never think its going to happen. But it does. We all need to be careful....especially careful that we not forget about this and all the other of thousands of similar unfortunate cases. I

thanks for the tip... i've been searching high and low for that... i'm also very sorry to hear about the loss... it sucks to know that something we have learned to love can hurt us deeply... take care and be careful to whom you talk to online... trust NO ONE!

a lot of people are like asking about how to make your profile private. and all you have to do it go to like account settings and privacy settings. and there should be a thing and all you have to do is click it an make sure that only your friends or only people under 18 can see it
