    So, he kept telling people he was going to kill himself and no one did anything to help them? Ok.

    Prayers for the daughter.

    Heart breaking.

    18 is an adult, not a girl. keeprightexcepttopass

    Just because one is an adult, their gender doesn't change. I'm over 50 and I'm still a girl.

    ""Condolences to the rest of their family for this loss. Hope they find the killer(s) quickly and deal with them as they should be dealt with! Scubagirl"

    Even reading just the headline should allow you to know that the killer is dead. finding him was easy, dealing with him would be a great deal harder.

    ***sigh*** while I realize they do NOT date stamp the headline changes and you do seem somewhat intelligent do you NOT realize that my comment was made BEFORE they sad the dad did it. Are you ALWAYS this contentious? oh wait yes you are.

    What a shame. It makes me wonder if the daughter was about to turn on him. Was there a complete and thorough investigation into the deaths in 2004?

    I agree with djofraliegh - many lunatics out there -

    " had the second wife returned from Texas with his two children whether or not this would be a bigger story, or no story"

    Good point. The news DID say she had a 'bad feeling' and turned around-if so, that 'bad feeling' may have saved her and the other children's lives. Regardless of the whys it's a sad story all the way around and all the way back to the fire.

  • djofraleigh Dec 31, 12:42 p.m.

    We pick at the headline enough and we don't have to face the fact that two people are dead, murdered by the father, one the father. WRAL is good about changing the headline as facts emerge. Someone down at the station is busy all day doing just that.

  • PeaceRH Dec 31, 12:40 p.m.

    If people want to kill themselves that one thing... I have such a hard time understanding why people kill their children and/or spouses as well. Very sad situation here!

  • djofraleigh Dec 31, 12:33 p.m.

    Another domestic homicide/suicide by gun.

    Makes one wonder about whether the death of his first wife was an accident, and had the second wife returned from Texas with his two children whether or not this would be a bigger story, or no story.

  • monami Dec 31, 12:24 p.m.

    NO! Not again!

  • admyank Dec 31, 12:14 p.m.

    I have said twice, and WRAL refused to post it - that it was a murder/suicide.

  • luvstoQ Dec 31, 12:13 p.m.

    So sad, maybe the father never got over losing his wife and son in the earlier fire. He may have been a sick man, but will never understand how a parent can kill their own child. So sorry that this happened and other family members have to face a terrible tragedy again.

  • Uhavenoclu Dec 31, 12:13 p.m.

    Can't even trust your own loving ha ha ha family.
    So sad for the girl.

  • Toddler10-21 Dec 31, 12:07 p.m.

    I have 3 daughters, and they will always be my little girls. Hell is to good of a place for him.

  • Scubagirl Dec 31, 12:07 p.m.

    How horrible! I just wish that people would NOT take their problems out on their children. That said it's an unfortunate turn of events and sad he didn't get the help he perhaps needed.

  • fifefan4life Dec 31, 12:04 p.m.

    So sad. Prayers for the family.

  • PracticalMagick Dec 31, 12:00 p.m.

    Guess they found the killer. :(

  • diana123 Dec 31, 11:56 a.m.

    it is he's 39

  • Terkel Dec 31, 11:54 a.m.

    keepright, your mind's in the right place, but 21 is an adult. At least they didn't call her a young girl.

  • Scubagirl Dec 31, 11:49 a.m.

    "18 is an adult, not a girl."

    SHE was still a girl and a teenager

  • Scubagirl Dec 31, 11:26 a.m.

    Maybe I'm just cranky, but why was the girl's age in the headline and not the man's?

    attention grabber plain and simple

    Condolences to the rest of their family for this loss. Hope they find the killer(s) quickly and deal with them as they should be dealt with!
