Elijah and Lori both could have had something to do with these two people dying they are so drugged up the but they dont even know where they are half the time. Even if socialservices steps in and takes the kids they will give them right back because they dont want to worry about having to take care of them. They get paid to do a job but the dont do it if they take them it will be more work for them to have to do. I think we as a community need to come together an d start taking back our streets from the drug dealers and prostitutes In other words elect someone in the office . and we need the police to step up and take controlof our streets
I totally agree, except we need the police to step OUT! All of them. We need to start all over because there isn't a damn one of them doing their jobs.

Yeah... Scott County loves calling out murder suicide cases, when they don't want to take the time to really investigate what happened! Trust me it will never come out either... once they call it you can dig call in private detectives try anything you want, all doors get shut! Trust me, I know this! In 1996 I lost some close family members that their case was done the same way. The crime scene was gone through the same damn day, within hours of them being shot! That's NOT a complete investigation! I have waited for many many years to see if anyone would ever spill their guts with some information to answer questions that could not be answered by any of the officials! One day the truth will come out...

I'm curious, some of you who say this wasn't a murder suicide, and tomcats cousin, were you guys actually AT the crime scene, did you assist in the investigation, have you taken any forensic investigation training, any forensic death investigation training????

@Riiiight...
I was not there personally.. Their daughters both were in the house that evening. It was their Aunt & Uncle's house that it happened in. When they went in the room, there was places cut out of the floor & ceiling in their Mom's room, where it took place. That was never explained why?? They had a family meeting with SEVERAL of the police department, prosecutors office, state investigator's office & their fathers family attorney. At this meeting there were several questions that went unanswered. They had to get their father's attorney to order an autopsy done on their father & to have the bolistics done on the weapon. The oldest daughter actually did dig and contacted Evansville State police post where all evidence goes to be processed. She did have a detective their working with her on the evidence, who just after finding out some important information for her lost his job. There were several prints found on weapon in question. So, as far as the other people on this thread, and the other cases, I do not know. But on this one... We ALL know!!

<quoted text> I turned in Lorianne to Family Service's when Junior and Loraine died, because she moved into thier house five or six days after the bodies were removed and was letting her children sleep on the same mattress that held Loraine's body for two weeks. The Little girl was starting to get sick after three days. Lorianne told me that it was ok because she cleaned it out-side. Family service's told her that the house would have to be cleaned by professional's and not by her. I think thats the reason why she sold the house. If you know about this call Family Services you can remain anonymous. I would but I don't know where she lives.
I totally agree with Care Bear!! Lori is nothing but TRASH and now prostituting herself out for pills she would F**K a snake is someone would hold it still and give her an oxy!!! She is a low life person who does NOT deserve to have her kids and what she did after her parents died like move right in to that house she has no sense what so ever in fact she didn't even act like she was sad at her parents wake i was there and all she did was keep going into the restroom to do pills and everytime i saw her she was laughing and joking with people hell she even came to me at their visitation and ask me if i needed my hair done that she would cut and dye my hair for a oxy 40 and 5 xanx and she said she would do it that night she is a no good lowlife piece of $hit!! Also it would not surprise me one bit if she had something to do with her parents death just so she could get their money and all of their stuff like the house and ect... Another thing i saw her at the dollar store about a month ago and she was in there stealing candles and make up and hair dye just a bunch of junk like that and i asked her how she had been doing and she said she was pill sick that she was shoplifting so she could re-sell it for pills she could have made something good out of herself she had a decent little shop and she use notice i said "USE" to cut hair and do eyebrows really good and then she let it all go to hell!! Even when Stoney was alive he couldnt stand her and it tore her up when he was in the shop with her cause everyone would come to him and get their hair done instead of her and most of her customers even stopped going to her and went to stoney because he did a hell of alot better job than her also my friend went to her to have her hair cut one time and she was so fucked up she passed out and stuck her sissors in my friends scalp and my friend had to go set 5 stiches in her head!!!! I did love stoney and may he rest in peace and he will be forever missed But as far as Lori she is a low life B**CH and a pill whore and is worthless, and no good for nothing and a no good parent and those poor children deserve to live with someone who will take good care of them and clothe them and feed them instead of putting pills before them!!! Thats all i have to say and CARE BEAR i am so glad to hear that you turned her no good A$$ in keep on doing it infact i am going to start calling on her myself!!

IF you would go to the first page you can read, my account. Yes, I have had forensic training and investigation; however, since I was related to them (my Aunt and Uncle) I could not assist in the investigation. My degrees come from Vincennes, Ball State, and University of TN. I was there when they pulled my Aunt and Uncle out of the house. I tried to assist in the investigation, but Lorianne had a block put on the records, so now I have to go to court to recieve a copy. If there is nothing to hide then why doesn't she want the reports made public. Prove to me that my Uncle killed his wife then himself. I'm not taking no body's word for it.

Your in my thoughts and prayers. I hope that one day you will find the truth about what happened to your family. The reason why I can't let this go, is because I loved them so very much!!! I know that if it was me that my Aunt and Uncle would not stop until the truth came out, because I know they loved me!!! I talked to my Aunt Loraine almost everyday like clock-work, and I could call them day-or-night if I needed them and they would come to me. I know that my Aunt Loraine would have walked through Hell for me if I needed her too, and my Uncle would have gave his life for mine if it came down to it. So, the very least I can do is keep looking for the truth for them. Don't Give Up!!!!! Love is everlasting.

This is very sick and sad.I cant imagine how anyone could put a child through such a thing.This sick woman needs to be strung up and those poor baby's need to be protected and shown love.This makes me ill.

I drove behind Hucks and the house looks empty did Lorianne move. I wanted to talk to her about, her letting her family adoted the two younger children. The reason why is she wanted money for the baby, but when I offered to buy the stuff for the little boy she didn't want that. I figured that it was for drugs. So, I refused to give her the money. I know that Lorianne will say NO to this because she likes to claim the kids at the end of the year for taxes, but I hope that I can convince her to take a good look in the mirror and look at Patience. If any of you people are talking to Lorianne, Please try to convince her to giving up her children for adoption. I hate to see the children suffer.

I think that the reason why the holes were cut, was because they were looking for the new will that Junior was going around saying that he had made. Because when he disappeared he was mad at Lorrianne when I talked to him and he was going to have the will changed. After the house was released she moved in. I was there when she was sitting on the porch going through her mother's purse and her father's wallet looking for money. She was calling the bank trying to get into their bank accounts. I was so glad to see her Aunt and cousin come up and both of them told her off. Her cousin called the bank and put a freeze on the bank account, and Lorianne got mad and threaten her cousin. Her cousin has backbone, but really there is nothing that she could do then and now.

What life?? She's a worthless drug addict and those poor little baby's don't have a chance,unless someone else steps up to get them away from her befor it's too late.there is no telling what else will happen to them.Are they hungry,do they have clothes,are they sick,are they being sexualy abused or getting beat??? Who the hell knows... if she would let her child sleep on a mattress where a dead body had been for two weeks,she's the one that needs a bullet to the head.It really would be doing the kids a big favor.I hate to be so blunt but you know I'm right.

I think the reason why the police didn't look into the case any further than they did was because Lonnie is the father of Patience. Or why wouldn't Lorrianne take her down to prove Duhrm is the father and get 100 dollars a week childsupport. Duhrum will start paying as soon as lorrianne proves that he is the father. At one of the party's that I went to Patience was bragging about how she killed Lorraine and then called her mom and young to help clean up the mess at the house. That they had watched enough CSI's tv shows to get away with the murder. But Lonnie doesn't care because that's his little girl. Go pull up the court cases Durhm doesn't have to pay until a test is down, and the test is free.
