the husband was a no-show for a Rent & Possession action last year. He was apparently behind on rent for a business location on Manchester in Kirkwood. 11SL-AC08613

many are speculating that the husband did it.

But I'm assured my people close to the husband, "no way".

The wife apparently had depression issues

What I dont understand is the husband was home right ? And of course the wife was the last to be shot how did he not hear three gunshots ?? It says he only heard one... That is what sounds fishy to me. This is just sad all around may those little kids reast in peace !

Mitch (Dad) is a sleaze masquerading as a 'good guy'. He is a wolf in sheep's clothing. The police need to dig very deep. No way did this happen the way it's being told by the only person left alive to tell it. Conveniently those who could really tell you about him are dead. This is very similar to the Chris Colman case and many others.

They're just in too much shock that their boy (the husband) was capable of something like this...

The dad is a sleeze and the older brother TIM is Satan himself, pure evil and a lying, cheating businessman. An interesting side story is that Tim fired Mitchell from the family business in 2008 and bought him out in 2009 for a large sum of money. In that company it was fairly common knowledge that Mitchell was an online playboy so I wonder if his wife finally found out about that. I too think this is a homicide not a murder suicide. No way three people in three separate rooms are shot and you aren't aware of the first two shots, only the final shot! This is as fishy as the family business and the Murch name in St Louis.
