    Dislike. I was trying to share the link, and accidentally pressed Like, and now it won’t let me dislike it. No offense intended to the family by this mistake.

      Please respect the idea that many family and friends are trying to figure out what happened right now, and are searching for answers all over. From personally knowing this couple and their closest friends that even had to witness the shooting, trust me, they are no different than other couples in different parts of this state. Please don’t but blame on a place, for a very sad tagedy.

    seems like in these situations it’s mostly the men shooting the woman then shooting himself. What’s wrong with these men? How can you get that angry ?

  6. Lamar Schwartzmann says:

    Women, these are the men who call you and ask who you’re with and won’t let you talk to other people, especially other men, because they are so GD insecure with themselves that they just can’t stand it.
