And why wasn't she in school at 9:00 am on a Tuesday?
Are the police aware of all this?(not that it would make much difference now)

He stabbed his wife 40 times. That hardly sounds like a spontaneous action. He then abducted and raped a girl over a period exceeding an hour. He decided to amuze himself before dying. For you to blame a mental disorder for this indicates how stupid you are.
Sean Murphy was scum.
There is no excuse, because the person that could be blamed, therefore granted an excuse, is dead. But to say chalking up to a mental disorder is stupid is wrong. I don't care how premeditated or sudden it happened, anyone that can carry out an act of violence to this extent is not right in the mind. Ok so maybe he did seem like a regular guy on an everyday basis and he just snapped. Well everyone has their snapping moments and your ability to handle it proves your mental competence. I'm sure he's not the monster that strangers will remember him as. He has issues and stress just like the rest of us. It obviously just became too much to bear.

Didn't she, or her parents, wonder why the children she was going to babysit wouldn't be in school?

All of you people have no sense of decency, both of these people were friends of my wife and I. Our children played together. They were wonderful people! To L: I remember all of those times, working together, laughing together, all of the summer parties - to many memories to list! I will always miss you! To S: I think back how everyone used to laugh at our friendship being complete opposites - regardless I still thought of you as one of my best friends! I am so sorry that this happened, so sorry that I didn't call you yesterday, so sorry to lose two great friends!
I promise to be their for your kids whenever needed, promise to keep your memories alive.
Forever Missed!
Wonderful people? Give me a break. The guy murdered his wife and raped and tormented a teenager. Wonderful guy in your estimation, eh?
This filthy perverted bullying coward left his children orphans and destroyed a young girl's life.
No matter how many chuckles you may have had with him at a barbecue, he deserves to rot in hell.

Wrong. He is a monster, he killed his wife, left his kids orphans and raped and tormented a neighbor kid.
A good person doesn't do those things.
Issues and stress does not cause a good person to stab their wife repeatedly and falsely imprison and rape a young girl.
His kids have to live with the fact that their mother was murdered, and their father was a horrible criminal who brought nothing but pain, shame and disgrace to their lives.

Everyone talks like they know what's going on..There are 3 Children That the MURPHY family is very protective over, and proud of ..not 2. And Sean Had his problems, And though Sean made his mistakes WE ALL LOVE HIM AND WILL MISS HIM SO VERY MUCH..
He's a disgrace! A cowardly murdering rapist.
The world is better off without him, he should have killed himselfstraight off the bat instead of attacking his wife and the neighbor girl first.

Oh he went through a rough time in his life boo fricking hoo. Does that give him the right to savagely attack two people?
What kind of a rough time do you think his orphaned kids are gonna have in life?
A man is known by his deeds.

I agree with what Selden mom said except where she said it could happen to any family. That is untrue! It was a selfish act and those poor children will suffer.
