I don't know a single female that was beat to death with a baseball bat.

I posted this article ... a normal family it appeared and WHAM somebody snaps. I noticed in the very first article he was a CPA ... now today's newspaper has him employed in some sort of security job at Walmart. Maybe wife was up and going places with his career and there he sits at Wally World ... just me trying to figure out why a person would do this.

BUT ... what grabbed my attention more than anything ... the children ... he has two and she has two ... I don't know if they had any children together. That is four children on the sidelines that have to live through this hell Lawrence created when he beat Bea to death with a baseball bat.

Nope I can't say I know a single soul that was beat to death with a baseball bat.

Lawrence D. Dickey was nowhere to be found when his children and stepchildren found Beatrice "Bea" Dickey beaten to death with a baseball bat. A panicked teen boy placed an emergency call early Sunday asking for help, confused about what had just taken place.

The caller told the dispatcher that he was near his mother, who continued to bleed from severe upper body wounds. She was breathing but unresponsive. "I'm right next to her right now," he said. "She's bleeding all over the place." A crying teenage girl could be heard in the background screaming, "I don't know what happened."

NO CHILD/TEEN, should ever see something like this. Yes he left to turn himself in to the cops but he left his children and stepchildren to find Beatrice and call for help.

Whenever there's a murder, there's generally two sets of fingerprints on the bat/murder weapon. A photo is vastly misleading, certainly not worth a 1000 words or even 10 words!

I did notice no halo, angel wings on the victim! Did she take them off for this photo-op?

Before I pass judgement, I want more evidence. Lots more!

So your reasoning is ... lack of angel wings and halos gives somebody the right to beat you to death with a baseball bat?

Then the person leaves the scene of the crime ... doesn't have the gonads to call the cops to the location ... leaving instead teenagers related to the victim to find the gruesome damage and call for help.

Albeit the individual admitting he did the deed, turned himself in to local LEO ... he did leave the scene to be handled by the teenagers ... her children and stepchildren.

The media, stingy with the air time and print space, are reluctant to go into a thorough search of what led up to this, or many crimes I read about in the paper everyday. And for various reasons.

I'm not an easy person to live with, accused often of being a control freak, and if I should be murdered by a roommate or spouse, at least a few of my fingerprints, if not all, will be on the murder weapon!

I personally don't care what led up to this ... no one deserves to be beat to death with a baseball bat and the battered body left to be found by children and stepchildren.

The dangers inherent with the human race, is the majority of us have never been through the extreme tests to see what our cracking points are!

He may very well had gone into a blackout!

Or he could have been a masterful dam builder. I've dealt with those kinds in the past. Anger/frustration dammed up to stratospheric levels, and all it takes is that one tiny straw to break the camel's back!

When the dam bursts, there's no stopping it!

No they don't.

Some of us interested in these crime stories that hit the news want to know what would motivate someone to commit such a crime. Its not normal.


Were they having marital problems? Did he have mental health issues?
Was there control and jealousy? Could he have been the type of person who bottled things up and then exploded?
