Again And Again And Yet Again… ~Sigh~

Saturday evening, browsing the web and while on CNN.com I come across the story of a man who … wait for it … Yes, you guessed it.  A man who killed his family and then killed himself.  I don’t know about you but I am so tired of reading these types of stories.  It seems like every week there is some fool killing his family.  Was there some sort of convention that all of these people went to where they were all brainwashed and then sent home with the assignment of killing themselves and their families??  This is getting out of hand and utterly unbelievable.

arthousewhagChristopher Wood aged 34 of Middletown, Maryland is believed to have killed his wife, their three children and then himself.  Some of the victims were stabbed as well as shot.  According to CNN.com,

Christopher Wood, 34, may have slashed at least some of his family members in the killings and used a small-caliber handgun on others, Frederick County Sheriff Charles Jenkins said.

He was found dead of an apparently self-inflicted shotgun wound at the foot of the bed where the bodies of his wife and 2-year-old daughter lay, the sheriff said.

Wood’s sons were 5 and 4 years old, authorities said. His wife, Francie Billotti Wood, was 33.

The boys were found in their beds in a single bedroom, the sheriff said. Authorities did not release the names of the children.

The investigators have reportedly found five notes inside of the house written by Christopher Wood.  The reports did not say if any of the notes were suicide notes but the notes may help investigators figure out what went wrong.

However no matter what the notes say or don’t say it is too late for the wife and children…

    Now you know this is all demonically inspired! It can’t possibly be due to a lack of money. We as a people have survived for centuries with no money and we had good times as well as bad. Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. Matt. 4:4

    It is definitely a sign of true madness and as the old folks say, “That ain’t nothing but the devil!”

    A family murder occurred in my hometown a couple of months ago. The man of the house killed his wife and children too. He cited his recent job loss and the reason why.

    My mom grew up during The Great Depression Era. She talked about rich people committing suicide but not taking their entire family with them.The madness needs to stop!

    You’re right…it’s sad and that’s an understatement. Even more reason to LOVE those around us. EVERYONE is looking for love and validation.
