This story makes me so, so angry.

What kind of a monster could do this to his wife and children? It goes against biology and every decent human emotion.

And strangulation is such an awful way to die...I keep wondering, "WHY?"

And the sorry bastard didn't take his own life. Kill yourself and leave the spouse and kids out of it if your that freaking miserable or out of it. I can not understand these people at all. Never will.

A week and a half ago not 2 miles from my house on a Thursday evening a dad took his 10 year old son to the park after church. The wife reported them missing at 1:30am. Someone walking found their bodies at 7:30am in the park. The dad had shot the son in the STOMACH 4 TIMES! Then killed himself. I've since heard more about what was going on w/ this person and it is sickening. UTTERLY SICKENING!!!! What gets me is he left his wife and two young daughters at home that night and went to church w/ his son and KNEW he was going to do this. He walked out the door KNOWING they were not coming back. Then that poor child............ he was LOOKING at his dad when he shot him. How on earth can you do that looking into your childs eyes? I can not get it. It really is hard to comprehend. Here we were not even 2 miles down the road, my parents live across from the park and we were all home safe and sound that night, sleeping in our beds in the comfort of our homes and this poor INNOCENT child lay bleeding out to his death at the hands of his own father.

Just because you've reproduced doesn't mean you're immune to mental illness. Mothers kill their families too.

I live where that story happened and just last week there was another one where the dad shot the ex and her new bf in front of the kids and then killed himself. To me, it seems like it usually is more often the dad then moms.
