Does anyone remember a double murder in 1995 or 1996 on Matinecock Lane in East Islip? My nephew just purchased a house on that block and we'd like to know the details. Any information you have would be a great help.

Tommy Burns killed his father and his father's girlfriend. I grew up across the street and can verify that the father was very abusive.

I haven't found much information on this but I can tell you he is prison for the rest of his life. He probably would have gotten off with killing the father but the father's girlfriend was an innocent bystander

He transferred to my high school, and he was a fairly quiet/polite kid. It didn't take my high school very long to see that he clearly was being abused at home. In EVERYBODY'S opinion we all felt for him and his bro. He was not a bad person and any one of us could have had the same outcome had we been beatup on a day to day basis. I'm not saying it was right but the word karma comes to mind. as for his fathers girlfriend she was no saint either

Why did he live with his father instead of his Mom if there was so much abuse? I lived in the neighbor and heard all about it...obviously that was the doing of a very abused child but I do t understand why if people knew about it all why nothing was done...aren't u then just as responsible?
