A Murder In Our Small Town?
Road Leading To Mass Murder
No Killers Here
This is a wonderful small town with a lot of wonderful people living here. We have several different churches mostly Baptist probably 8 or 9. We have 3 restaurants, 3 gas stations, 1 grocery store and post office, library, and school, and a couple of auto repair shops. We have a large hardware and lumber company. The school is rated one of the top schools in Florida. All the business people and the local people are friendly and seem very honest to do business.I can pretty much buy what I need as long as it is not shoes or music supplies.
The neighbors are friendly and everyone knows each other. Your neighbors will lend a helping hand if you are sick,or need something from the store. Our sheriff's department comes out once in a while. You will hardly ever see a police car driving around town. We have no sheriffs office in town, you have to go to the next town 11 miles away. This town is so friendly that in November the town has a free Thanksgiving dinner for people over 55 to make sure the seniors had a dinner.
The county has just built a new swimming pool, it is beautiful. If you are a senior you can use the pool free.
Now what makes someone kill? You would have to be sick to commit this crime. Could you kill your own child, and how about your granddaughters. I know that no matter how mad I got I could not do it. I suppose we will in the end feel sorry for the victims and the killer.
It is one year since this crime has taken place. We remember this family, and say a prayer for peace and forgiveness. Sept.7,2015.
Police Tape Off Crime
Who Was Murdered?
The bigger question is not who was murdered but Why? The whole thing makes no sense at all. What could possibly caused these murders. This is a horrific murder that I could not comprehend. The murders took place on September in 2014 on a Thursday. We only live 2 streets down from where it took place. The grandfather 51 killed his daughter, and 6 grandkids, all the way down to the little baby.
I don't pretend to understand any of this crime against the mother and six children. I only know if he wanted to kill his daughter he should of just killed himself first. I believe the baby was 2 or 3 months old. The man had to be very sick, but we all have to be responsible for our actions. There seems to be a lack of conscience and soul in this murder case. Three months latter and the case still screams why. What is the answer we want to hear? Is there any answer to this case or just more questions? Were we not raised or a least believe in the Bible that a child is a precious person? What happened to thou shalt not kill? Evil is everywhere, even in my little town. What ever happened to the soul and to conscience?
I was in town when I heard several ambulances and police cars head the way I go home. With all the ambulances I thought it must be a big accident. I got home and found out from my other neighbor what went on. Shortly after that, I saw a couple of TV crews heading down the road.

The Highway To The Murder Scene
Whats Left Now
1. Age 28 Daughter
2 Age 11 Child
3. Age 9 Child
4. Age 8 Child
5. Age 5 Child
6. Age 4 Child
7. Age 2 months
All 6 children and the mother were all found shot in the head. I guess I will never know why. Its been over 3 months and none of my neighbors know why this has happened. I do not think we will ever know the why of this story. They did have a beautiful memorial service for the family. It is one of the saddest stories this town has ever experienced. It was shortly after the murders that the grandfather shot and killed himself.
I know this is a terrible thought, but too bad he just did not kill himself first. Those children had a right to live. This was not his choice. The kids had their whole life ahead, and no one has the right to take that away, let alone a grandfather.
I truly feel bad for the relatives that have lived through this nightmare and will remember it the rest of their life. I will continue to pray for those left and that healing will take place. May these children rest in peace.
