Murder Suspect’s Father Released a Statement

Austin Sigg’s father Robert Sigg released a statement on Thursday afternoon.

“Dear Denver-area press, I am Rob Sigg, the father of Austin Sigg. I have issued this statement today.

“First, I would ask for your prayers and support for the Ridgeway family. There are no words to express the sorrow that I and my family feel for their pain they are suffering. We are devastated by the knowledge that my son, Austin Sigg, has been arrested and will be charged with the murder of their beautiful daughter Jessica. This horrible event is a tragedy for both the families, as well as the community. I ask also for your prayers and support for Austin’s mother, whose courageous act … unimaginably painful for any parent … has put this tragedy on the path to resolution. I am hopeful that as the legal process unfolds, the Ridgeway family may come to know peace.”

  1. The courage that Austin’s mother showed is unbelievable. Prayers for both families who are now bound together by a horrific act that has done damage to both families that they may never recover from.

  2. there are no guarantees when we bring children into the world. You can do everything right and they can wind up troubled, ill, violent. You can be indifferent as a parent, abusive and neglectful and windup with a child who becomes the next president of the US. There is no way to tell what will happen – but we love them – no matter who or what they turn out to be. My prayers have gone up for Jessica and her family. My prayers go up for this family and this young man also. He may be a monster in the eyes of many, even myself – but he is still the child of someone who had no way of knowing what could happen. There is no perfect parent, there is no perfect child. Most of us just do the best we can do.

  3. The prayers are for his family, not him per say… It took a lot of guts for his mother to turn in her own child… That family is hurting too, not in the same respect by any means.. Don’t hate the family…

  4. It was very big of him to come forward and release a statement. You don’t see the very much

  5. Prayers to both families!

  6. What a brave mother. Maybe you have saved others. Prayers are coming your way. God bless you. I am so sorry for your loss.

  7. It must be horrible to have the knowledge that your own son did this. She is a strong woman to have turned her son in. I can’t imagine how difficult this is.

  8. I first and foremost have prayers for the Ridgeway family, but I also have to give a lot of credit to the parents for having the strength and sense to turn their son in and not losing sight of who the victim is in this case! Definite prayers for both the Ridgeway and Sigg families but not for Austin himself, he will have is judgement day here and more importantly with God in the end!

  9. I have to say that as a Christian I have had a very hard time with this horrific ordeal.

  10. God Bless these families, and the communities that they live in. Such a sorrowful loss for everyone. There is resolution in forgiveness, no matter how difficult it might seem. There is recovery in forgiveness. Seek it prayerfully. Amen.

  11. I can only imagine the strength it took to turn in one’s child…prayers are with both families as they face this tragic event.

  12. I too give Austin’s mother so many prayers for doing the right thing, what strength she must have had to endure to make the call the the authorities, knowing her son will never be in her care again. Much respect to Austin’s father, Robert, for coming forth and making a statement to help the mother to be strong, and to stand by her decision. So many prayers to go out to both the Ridgeway and Sigg family. I hope God will be in your presence throughout this horrible time in your lives. God Bless.

  13. Mr. Robert Sigg, there are victims on both sides in this case. The courage, morality and compassion displayed by you and Mrs. Siggs is something to be commended. Both sides have in essence lost their children. God be with Jessica’s family and your family during this tragic situation.

  14. It would have been the hardest thing to do, but I would have turned my own child in to prevent another tragedy.

  15. I think it showed real class and compassion in a situation that no parent can imagine facing.
    Ms Sigg deserves our support for doing the right thing while making an impossible choice.

  16. His parents are very strong people and should be applauded for taking the steps that they did. They basically understood that justice for Jessica meant losing their own child. His father wrote a short but eloquent letter that couldn’t have been stated any better. My friend’s daughter goes to school with sigg’s little brother. He was pulled from class on Wednesday. I only hope that his classmates understand that he is a victim of his big brother’s actions and show him compassion. I can’t imagine being a freshman whose brother is a demon. My prayers go to both families.

  17. Every single time you think your heart can’t break anymore in this case, it does. Epic agony for both families. Prayers for all 4 parents and their loved ones.

  18. My thoughts and prayers are with both the Ridgeways and the Siggs. Neither will ever be a “whole” family again, and neither will ever really have an answer as to ‘Why?’
    Sane people can’t truly understand the insanity of such a vicious, senseless act. So many thanks are due to Ms. Sigg, for making sure no other family went through this.
