People are so crazy these days. The only way to settle their differences they think is to kill the person they have a dispute with, then commit suicide. No woman or man is worth it.

World gong crazy,

Nothing new, it just gets publicized quicker and broadcast wider these days.

There will always be ego driven males who live and die by the motto:

"If I can't have her no one else can."

This woman was working to make a living on a holiday weekend, now two families have had their holiday ruined and how many other lives severely impacted?

Glad he took his own life and saved the taxpayers the expense to do so.

Uh sorry this very rarely happened in fact your chance of being struck by lightning in a store was greater than this happening as recent as 30 years ago maybe even 20 years I was around then Mr. HPU grad I'd wager you weren't even thought of then. So no this is something that's relatively new not "old news".

Kevin,

I was not referring to this happening in a store, I was referring to the old male/female relationship. And for your information I was born in 1942 and have seen men do his many times even back in the 1950's and 1960's just not in a business. Kenneth Bell who I was around when I was growing up in Wilkes Co. NC did this to his former girlfriend at her home, not in a store. Kenneth was also born in 1942.

Yes, it is happening more in public places, but that is because more women are working there. Several times more women work outside of the home than in the 1950's or even 1960's to make a living. This makes them more independent and threatens some male's egos. Who then take them out in their workplace vs at home.

I would have to agree with that...
Some men aren't worth the lead it takes to shoot them...
It's a shame....

Wow, it's a shame about the loss of human life here. It's even more of a shame that people use this tragedy to purport some sexist philosphy about males. Females kill/abuse their male counterparts as well. Pull the tampon out there buddy.

Approximately 1.3 million women and 835,000 men are physically assaulted by an intimate partner annually in the United States.
