TO WHO EVER WROTE THIS!
you do not know the man that committed this crime so who are you to judge just by his looks. He looks like a man who's wife is killed........yes it may have been at his own hands..........but maybe it was not him in his mind that did it. No one knows what really went on in that house other than god and that man. no one knows what was going on in his head..........he could have been fighting with mental problems for a while but no one would know since him and his wife were VERY private people not even their own children new everything as they thought they did!

He knew what he was doing when he beat her to death with his hammer.

Very predictable!! The children he abused so severely in 1975 became very self destructive and abusive to girlfriends, boyfriends etc. This evil cycle continued until someone ended up dead! This monster is sitting exactly where he belongs right now!! It is ashame that his children had to suffer at his hands and continue his mayhem. God bless all of the victims in this mess!!!!
