Jeez, this is scary. First, the still unsolved mystery of Charity Worley murder. Then the death of Oscar "Poochie" Corn (suspects arrested) and now this.

Gang related maybe? If you live in the H'ville/Flat Rock area lock your doors and keep an eye out on your neighbors and the comings and goings in your neighborhood.

The fact that someone is targeting

Get a big dog and lock and load. Be sure there's a flashlight attached to your 12 ga.

Bush ain't from heaven nor is he going there. Christians are responsible for the racism today.

Wasn't it just about a year or so ago that a young man with a Developmental Disability and his mother were robbed in H'ville? Wasn't his elderly mother killed? I'm pretty sure they got the guys that did it but ... it still leads me to believe that there some sort of an organized "gang" and this is part of their "MO" rob/assault/kill those in our society who are weaker or more defenseless - as evidence by the fact that they are praying on elderly and those with DD.

So far, this crime doesn't appear to be related to any "gang" or organized crime spree. The suspect may have had a key to the house. At least one of the victims knew the suspect and he had apparently worked in the home in the past.

The Hendersonville Times-News has a more updated article. Here's the link to that article:

Until some people get real and understand it takes more than than saying no-no to these thugs it will continue to happen. The courts are not doing the job and the police are overwhelmed. Let the papers start reading "Two shot to death in Home Invasion" or " Neighbors confront Home Invaders and kill all involved" It is our country, if we want to keep it, you are gonna have to fight for it.

Kenmure, while not new, is a pretty fancy development and the article said that investigators do not feel that this incident was random.

Whew, didn't mean to hit the "proverbial" panic button there, it just all got to be a little to coincidental if you know what I mean. Flat Rock/H'ville used to be such a peaceful, quite place. The times they are a changing ......

Thanks for the update
