First Bell County, Knox County, Whitley County and pretty much every county in S.E. Kentucky have Long Histories of electing some of the most criminal elements of the region...
Second we, You don't know the whole story in this event... We may Never know the whole story.... We don't know what was the reason the guy shot these folks... It could very well be as you say and he just lost it and pulled a gun.... Or as been rumored there was a criminal enterprise in drugs involved... Or the guy could have been attacked by the two men.. or a Dozen other possibilities that might mean No One was Innocent in this event....
I will say this... Mike smith couldn't have fought him if he tried...he was disabled and had a prosthetic hip! If he felt his daughter Robin was in danger like I suspect, he and his son likely tried to make Raymond leave which caused him to fight back with a gun! Not a fair fight! Now that sadly resulted in far too many people losing their lives! Prayers for all the families involved!

Being disabled sure didn't keep him from dealing drugs.

Were you there? Do you know the circumstances? No But what I know is that two people are dead by homicide and one by suicide and one girl in the hospital with a gunshot wound. You must be one of his lowlife family members to think he was justified in killing these people.
as u know he has /had friends--leave the dead be=both families..he was no coward,,seems like you are hiding behind a computer

Please, if anyone here has any heart and holds to any form of objective morality, please pray for every single family member this has impacted. I may know someone who is effected by this. For them it may be the worst day and night of their life. So please if you all believe in God, please pray.

It really does not matter what he did in his past or who or what these people he shot were. In the end, the man is a murderer. There is no way to finesse that into any other arrangement of facts or to excuse it.
His family has that additional burden to carry. Condolences to them on many levels.
