    Our country is falling, from the inside. Our government is treading water, helpless to make wise decisions. Ignorance , dysfunction and mental illness running rampant. How much time before we have to cuddle together and post guards at night.

    There's more to this story. What was going on that the father didn't want the daughter to tell anyone?

    Praying for those who loved her.

    in all my life never heard of such killing. What is it? hopelessness?, revenge?, cover up of abuse? warped discipline?
    what. All i know it is disheartening, fear provoking and sad, ohh so sad. Whatever it is i personally dont think it will get better until the economy gets better, because the present economy leaves so many with such a sense of worthlessness.

    This is such a sad story and TruthBKnown is correct-I don't think we'll EVER understand this.
    Hoping that the brother (especially), and other siblings and the mom can recover in part from this. I KNOW firsthand you never get over the untimely death of a family member but thoughts and prayers are with them. RIP Larissa :(

    I agree TruthBKnown these murder suicides are happening too often one time is too many. I cannot understand or even attempt to understand the thinking of anyone who would kill a loved one. If they want to harm someone they should just take themselves out. May God bless all the family and friends.

    A very courageous and compasionate young man. He obviously loved his sister very much. Very sad.

    Excellent group of posters here. In the face of such tragedy it's at least comforting to see the humanity of those commenting here.

    please pray for our local middle school, such a terrible incident for our small community.

    The family needs to have some major support, from families and friends at this time during the holiday season. :(

    Sad,sorry to her brother and rest of her family that actually cared about her.
    Have children when you are ready and who you will love.

  • prauccio Dec 10, 4:43 p.m.

    Prayers, love and hugs to the family and extended family and friends of this little girl. My co-workers daughter played on the National Soccer team with her, and this is just hitting them so hard.

    RIP Larissa. This is so sad and her brother is going to need a lot of support after this.

  • TruthBKnown Banned Again01 Dec 10, 4:32 p.m.

    An absolutely horrible story.

    I know there is no way for the rest of us "in our right minds" to possibly understand what was going through the father's mind... we cannot possibly walk a mile in his shoes... but I swear, why don't these troubled people just take themselves out of this world without taking other innocent victims out with them???
