Have you seen this man? He's wanted for gunning down Danielle Burnett Wednesday night in Lafayette Square. Burnett and her unborn child were later pronounced dead at a hospital. A man with her at the time was also hospitalized for a wound bullet wound to the shoulder.

Terrance Burnett, 41, is the estranged husband of Danielle. She filed for divorce against him last month, during a time when Terrance sat in St. Louis County jail on marijuana charges.

Anyone who knows Terrance's whereabouts should call CrimeStoppers at 1-866-371-TIPS.

Lord rest their souls, Who are we to Judge, we are all human, and behind every action is a reaction. I met Danielle a couple of times, and I can say this, she may have been many of things, but one things for sure she was a humbled young lady, I never met Terrance only seen him once or twice, he didn't seem like a bad person, and I honestly don't think he was.  Never heard a bad word spoken about him.  Stop passing judgement on the unknown, for one day you too will be judged. I am praying for both the Burnett and Famous family.

I can't believe I'm reading the term "unborn child" in the Riverfront Times!  It might be even more surprising than the balanced feature they did on the effects of abortion on would-be fathers.

I grew up in the same neighbor hood as Terrance. I know his mother. I actually kinda feel like she is like a mother to me. I am a mother. I found out about Terrance this morning, I wish this was not true for all the people involved. It just shows to me that Love & Relationship cause people to do things & sometimes Emotions will make People Go 2 Far. I wish he would had just walked away...came back home:California. He had California Love from people here!!! It  also bothers me to see what Happens to the people who are still here to deal with the Lost of Lives. They were People...not a number! Some people may Not be able to Realized all Lives have a Value...it is not Always About Money. I am feeling the lose for both families. I hope we all will be able to Heal from this & Learn Something from this. Peace 2 Us All!!

A dear friend from cali...I can't believe what I'm reading...I have known Terrance ever since we were 16 years old. My prayers go out to both families... We don't know what really, really happen. Only God knows...I was taught if u don't have anything positive to say then u should keep it to yourself. God bless everyone! Remember to keep Good first.

When it comes down to it... he took two lives and if you expect people to mourn his lose because he had family then you are sadly mistaken. judgement doesn't have to be made on anyone part, god will def take care of him for what he did. Just like he had a family who loved him so did she and the difference is HE took HIS own life because HE was not man enough to accept responsibility for his actions I do believe that those are two completely different situations. And if the shoe was on the other foot and someone had taken his life.... I would bet my car on the fact you wouldn't be talking about how you have no right to judge or have harsh feelings t words the person who violently took his life

For all of you talking crap. Not saying what he did was right by any means. However, who are you to judge. Think about the families dealing with this horrible situation on both sides. I knew him personally and I pray for you for being judgmental.

Thanks Terrance for the public service of doing yourself in.  It is unfortunate that it took murder and almost being apprehended for you to realize what a sorry excuse for a piece of sh*t you are.

GOD BLESS YOU and your stupidity. If you don't have anything relevant to say don't say anything at all. I already stressed it was horrible what Terrance did. No ones aksing you or anyone else to mourn him. Both sides of the families are feeling a huge lost. We can express how hurt we are as his family/friends. We don't condone what he did. But we love himjust the same. Unless you've walked a mile in these shoes. Stop being evil.

Maybe that would be the response from some, maybe not, but it all boils down to one thing-everyone has their opinions/bias/feelings,etc. It's called reacting because lives were lost and they are affected by it. Do you know the parties involved? Perhaps you are not able to give a solid opinion if you don't. You could only provide an opinion based on what you read above, that is it...Regardless of the case, whether you feel to mourn or not to mourn for anyone, it is still a sad situation and you can't dictate what others should feel about him, her, or anyone else involved. Just chalk it up as a sad case; I believe that is the consensus.

He obviously needed serious mental help. It is sad how it all played out, but some people will never change & his issues caused too many lives to be destroyed & will continue to destroy even after his own suicide. Pathetic....just pathetic. What a waste of life.

Thank you very much. Terrance Burnett was my uncle and although what he did was horrible no one has the right to judge him and say hateful things. GOD is the one he has to answer to. He was a beautiful person who had some demons. Some people make bad decisions but think about some of the things you have done. Does that define who you are?? Get a life people.

Hey Kenken, it's your baby cous from NY (dimples)....I heard the news and called your sis yesterday. It's so disheartening what happened :-(. I am glad you are stepping up to the plate and voicing your opinion. I haven't been in Cali forever but my childhood memories recalls this place as second home. Those who are judging didn't know either party and just went by what the media put out.  I guess it is hard not to feel anything but harsh if you don't know a person but he is someone's child, she was someone's daughter and all have lost either way. KenKen, I remember Terrance in '85 when we came up  from NY, he was on his bike, wearing a white tee shirt and was one of the kids around the way coming into PV. People have their demons..we don't know how their lives will turn out....all we do is pray for the best. Everyone involved in the situation (both sides) that know these people are affected. Doesn't make sense to judge because no one was there when everything transpired...........violence is violence (whether both inflicted or not) and it is just a sad situation period.
