    This stuff makes no sense, that is why it is so difficult to read and understand. Don't these mothers and fathers ever look at their kids and ask themselves if they can think of any good or bad reason their kids would want to be killed. I grew up in the 50's and these sorts of things did not happen. Life may not have been perfect but we had "family", church, school, neighborhood pals, and respect for each other. I know exactly when our moral selves started eroding. It was when we became liberal and inserted our own selfish ideas as a replacement for Gods authority.

    I'm assuming the investigation will show which person fired the gun, and what IP/location was used by the computer that sent the email.

    Without those two things nailed down, I could see the scene playing out one of two ways: (a) the estranged BF taking it out on the good mother; or (b) as reported, a murder-suicide.

    I'm sure they'll know for certain based on the physical evidence, once the analyses come in (computer forensics; swab for firing residues on skin/clothing).

    Either way, it's an awful situation. Hard to believe that parents make such decisions, to whack their own kids.

    Restraining order against the father of her 22 mo. old. Shes divorced from the older twos father.
    Maybe the bf is/was abusive, and possibly to the children and she didn't/ couldn't bear to let the daughters be exposed to him, and thought this was the only way out???

    The reason it doesn't appear to be the BF is she bought the shotgun herself today. (And the BF has been released and isn't considered a suspect.)

    I assume he had an alibi to his whereabouts.

    Wrong forum dude. But if you are going to rant make sense. Suicide and murder suicides takes lives from all walks of life.

    Anything's possible, but agreed that if they're letting him go then likely the physical evidence was clear enough.
