From what I'm hearing it is looking more and more like a case of a "scorned" woman. The word is her ex had recently gotten engaged and this set her off. These two had been married and divorced twice and it sounds like he hung around enough afterward that she might have had hopes they would again reconcile.

She even has a picture or 2 with her Brother but none of her parents.
I see what you mean. She does seem to be overly wrapped up in her children's lives, especially her daughter.

Yes, and I hear he was one of the nicest people you'd ever meet. I guess it just goes to show how pervasive mental illness is and how differently it can look from how most people think of it. It is just so sad to think about how much someone like this is suffering and no one even realizes.

Suicide is a very sad thing when someone has an otherwise healthy and viable life.

But why take other innocent lives as well?

People who knew him all his life couldn't believe it. Everyone speaks pretty highly of him as well as the children who were killed. I have family members who knew victims in both of these cases.

Washington Post article on the judge. Seems like the type who would not do this as he was aware of the issues of mental health.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/natio...055_story.html

"A statement from Chief Justice Harold D. Melton said Goss brought “dignity and compassion to the delivery of justice all across this great state” and was known nationally for his work on mental health and substance abuse treatment programs....

In 2002, Goss founded Georgia’s first felony mental health court and substance abuse treatment program in Dougherty County. It was one of the early programs of its kind in the country, according to his online bio. The program assists those with felony probation or pending felony charges, many of whom have a long history with substance abuse or diagnosed mental illness. For the past decade, the Dougherty County program has been a designated learning site for mental health courts, one of only four in the nation...."

This is pretty amazing. We need more of these throughout the US. A lot of people with mental illnesses need counseling versus incarceration.

Whatever it was that pushed this woman over the edge, it is tragic that she chose to take two fine young people with her.
