News conference was very brief. He has been arrested. No bond. He used ligatures to strangle his family. Long row to hoe and yada yada.
It's funny...I was so sure it was him, and yet...I guess, on some level, I wanted to be wrong. Who wants to think that a father could strangle his sons?
Once again, I wail: just what kind of society have we built when a man would rather kill his family than divorce and support them?
There are more and more of these cases, and each and every one of them makes me ill.
Edited May 21, 11:49 PM to add that a poster at StLToday has recently posted two unconfirmed rumours:
First, "The final piece of forensics that pushed the PA to indict was that willingness of Dr Michael Baden to testify that after reviewing the autopsy report Sheri could have been killed before 3am and NO LATER that 5am."
Second, "THE THREATING (sic) COMMUNICATION TO BC'S (CC's?) FAMILY ORIGINATED ON CC'S COMPUTER. The computer was seized from CC's house and this coffin nail is now a significant piece of evidence."
These two tidbits were posted by "gmhvvcolumbiannative" on pages 125 and 126 of the comments here. Take it for what it's worth--unsubstantiated rumour. Still, rumours on this board have been remarkably accurate in the past.
