This is one sick man, whoever or whatever the problem may have been, he needs to be locked up in a mental institution for life, ther is obviously some definite and serious mental problems here that need to be addressed and it needs to be done immediatly.

I understand some people like to "see how things work" but isn't this taking it a little far?

Aw...this reads like a Charles Manson family love story.

Murderous father has his heart cut out by crazy son.

Great metaphor...that only a creek separates the two!

Jack Sparrow;
What's in your grog? This is a case of attempted premeditated murder! Depending on the father's cardiac health condition, removing a pacemaker from anyone in this manner is tantamount to attempted murder by torturous means. This guy should be locked up for life in solitary confinement.

If the father lives through all this, he should count his blessings. At the present time he is suffering enough. His family, due to their history, should seek counseling. If not, some greater and meaner problem might arise.

What's the world coming to?

Hello said: "You will see more of this under Obama care. The wait will be so long you will die in your home waiting. Look at Fema how long before you get a check? Anything. Wake up fools the end of a good life is here." You are one weird person if you think this is somehow the fault of the Obama administration. Or are you similarly saying any attack that occurs during any president's stay in office is that president's fault? That would mean any murder that occurred during G.W. Bush's 8 years was his fault?(How about admitting 9/11 was Bush's fault? same reasoning)

Sounds like Mental Illness to me. I would guess it has to do with aliens. Probably the son's "hat" mentioned above is made of tin foil.

strange story. also strange that the iowa gazette thought to include; "Charles Fierstine, who is retired, attends the Jehovah's Witness Kingdom Hall in Dyersville. His son does not."

reads more like small town gossip than it does a newspaper story.

The son is a repo man. Dad was four months behind on his payments. Another symptom of these tough economic times.

Good thing the father is a JW.........he doesn't have to feel guilty about not buying his kid Christmas or birthday presents because of what he did. Or maybe that was why he did it. Was it the kids birthday? What a horrible thing to do....I hope the dad gets better and the son is never loose again.

Boy,oh Boy, You all had some interesting things to talk about, but I didn't hear anything about the prior issues of the kid trying to kill him with a block of wood, stove poker with blood on it, along with the items the cops took. And if I heard it right, they said that they were "lucky" because it's the only day that there is a Judge in town? and he had "NO job" must of been living off the old mans S.S., Didn't think that out very good with him as the bread winner in the family, WOW?
Also, where and the hell is the rest of the family when this was all going on? You would of thought someone would of called 911 a few days back when the stove poker came out? Wonder what kind of Ins.policy the old boy had on him? Anyways, sounds like a good place to raise the kids at? Wouldn't you say? C-Ya's
