It sounds like the police are pretty confident about this one. It would be nice if the family and community could stop living in fear and have some closure. What a shame.

BUT...there are no FACTS stated putting Brake at the scene of the Murders and Fire. Just because he used to live in the area?
How are the Police so sure?

Need more info please...

I AM ONLY SAYING WHAT I READ IN PREVIOUS POSTS...BUT...they said that two of them were sleeping at the time the person approached the home. Which would make it more possible I guess!!! But like I said, IM ONLY QUOTING what I read in previous posts....

Consider - let me help you with a little word we call "Logic". Let's say it together. "Looooo-gic". Good job. Logic tells us that he wouldn't be CHARGED with a crime like this if there were no facts putting him at the scene. The police don't have to tell us everthing they know - just the court. Take a moment to relax and wait for the trial. That's where, in America, the prosecution presents all evidence. In COURT. Notice how that's different from the idea that the posecution must present all evidence to the MEDIA so that YOU have something to read.

Hopefully this is the right guy and that the police are not just grabbing at straws. The police are under a lot of pressure to solve these horrific murders and I just hope and pray that they have the right person. If they are just basing it on the fact that he lived next door many years ago, that seems pretty slim. I agree that more info is need to convince me that they have the right person and that the real murderer is not still out there.

We don't know what evidence the police have? There has to be some reason that they have officially named him a main suspect, though possibly not alone, and stated that the investigation is moving along quite nicely.

I have family in the area. I don't feel they are safe just because the Police have named a suspect that has a violent background.
YOU can play with your LOGIC as much as you want, most of us rely on FACTS.
IS THERE STILL SOMEONE IN THE AREA RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS? NO FACTS RELEASED TYING HIM TO THE SCENE AT THIS POINT.
Ooh, and the Police are never wrong? PLLeeaassee!
