This doesn't seem like a random murder -- two people in such a rural setting killed at their home with multiple gunshots each? Sounds like this was somebody they knew -- a friend, acquaintance, family member.
The dog attacked and bit a neighbor who went into the house to investigate -- wonder how the killer got past the dog?

They had a gun so they could have shot from a distance... Getting in the house is easy, getting close to a person is different. However, I think you and I have the same though. The person who killed the couple knew the couple or was let in. My question is who was killed first (man or woman)? Did the man have something he was trying to buy, or sell like motor cycle, car, or parts. CRAIGSLIST brings out all the crazies..... This was not a random murder. I will bet the husband was the target and the wife was killed for being able to I.D. the killer(s)....

Personally, I'd be more inclined to think it was drugs he was selling (or buying) than motorcycle parts.

Maybe he was trying to buy a Fisher Price computer.

Probably the perp was a Tea Partyer 'taking his country back' from the 'shower every day' crowd.

If your read in the Meadville Tribune the Funeral
arrangements and where the couple will be buried,
also read the Guestbook for Laurie, many people,
for Todd, zilch, perhaps this all has a different
motive. The police have an idea, but it will come out soon, I am sure.
Just read carefully. But very sad indeed.

The couple appears to have been very different when it come to religion. It is kind of odd to have separate burials too.

maybe she was cleaning his 'gun' and it went off in her face.

Saw the headline earlier, but hadn't read the story until now. Anyone who saw the movie "Fargo" will appreciate this line from the original ETN story:

William Roncaglione, who lives on Wheeler Road immediately east of the Prenatt home, said Monday that he didn't know the couple well, but found Tod Prenatt to be "kind of a funny character."

----------

WR: He was kinda funny lookin'.

Officer: Uh huh. In what way?

WR: Oh, just in a general kinda way.

You betcha!!

Not odd at all. They didn't have any surviving children to handle their burial, so the arrangements were being made individually by their perspective families. I doubt either family would expect the other to pay for their family member's funeral.

Isn't it strange the dog was standing guard over Laurie and bit someone for even going near her?
Yet someone can come in and shoot her? Where was the dog then. Maybe he knew the attacker? Just wondering.

The estate would of the couple would be considered in the funeral arrangements... Also, Victims Compensation Assistance Program would assist in paying for the funeral. Sorry, but this is a first in the untimely death of a married couple..... Most times the funerals are together. There is more to the story than we will know...

Laurie Ann Prenatt had survivors include her mother, Ruth Ewig of Conneautville; a daughter, Jamie Flores and her husband, J.C., of Greenville; a granddaughter, Emma Flores; a brother, Larry Ewig and his wife, Sharon, of Conneautville; two sisters, Linda Rote and her husband, Denny, of Martinez, Ga., and Janet Katulich and her husband, Steve, of Leonardtown, Md.; and several nieces and nephews.

They both had survivors, Columbo. And both are being buried by their respective survivors. What's so puzzling to you about that?

Okey doke. Then look up the definitions of "perspective" and "respective" and tell us what you've learned.(Hint: you'll learn you used the wrong word, malorkus.)

Glad to see an old dog can learn new tricks. You're welcome.
