Just for the record anytime a grown man sleeps with a underage girl, regardless it's still a form of RAPE.

As for what happened it sounds like a Jerry Springer show.

There is no excuses for what Sean did, he killed himself and another person, for wharever reason only known to himself.

No sense on fighting because it's not going to bring anyone back, the pain is there of course people want to point fingers, but it seems Sean couldn't keep his gun in his pants and he ruined everyones life, there isn't nothing else but that. He slept with a under age girl(rape) he killed his wife (life without parole)so this isn't someone we can stand up for.

IT WAS HIS ACTIONS THAT CAUSED ALL THIS NOT ANYONE OR ANYBODY ELSE. NOBODY TOLD HIM TO STICK HIS PEE-PEE IN a underage girl, nobody held his finger to the trigger...He alone caused much heartache

Ain't got no big white butt. lol...I'm fit and trust me I'm no ANGEL. Me I've been down that road before, end results, is the 2-5 minutes you snap really worth this?

How many people do you see that tried to commit suicide and it didn't work, only to thank GOD they didn't die????Heard that story before.And some people never get a second chance.

It gets better, people just don't wait it out...Everyone at one time or another in there life has seen RED, but it's honestly not worth it in the end.

This is something that we see too much of, Guy gets a sugar momma, while sugar momma is getting the $$ the guy is cheating on her. No respect what so ever. He is the one sleeping with JAILBAIT, wifey finds out throws his butt to the curb, takes him back, only to do it all over again, and good ole sean, just kills her...takes her life away because she doesn't want him, while he is already living with JAILBAIT. wow...Since he committed suicide he has NO CHANCE to get into the gates of heaven,cowards take the easy way out....What excuse can you give? He was drunk? lol..well when you drink you and YOu alone become responsible for your actions. I was hurt? how many people are hurting everyday and don't kill?

You make absolutely zero sense. Do yourself a favor and educate yourself. You sound like the rest of the herd in this country...ignorant and illiterate. I'll bet you watched football yesterday didn't you...and maybe even tonight. Spectator sports anyone. You know why they were invented don't you? The same reason religion was....to keep the dumb herd busy while the smart rich people run things. Wake up you bunch of dumb asses.

wow didn't you already post almost the smae thing on another thread? Did you have to have someone help you type it up?
Boy you really like when someone kills somebody, you stick up for them. If you do not like the WHITE ASS rich people, you could go to Iraq and shoot whoever you want. Seems to me like you will fit it just fine. I'm sure Whitey would even pay for you to go if you want!

Through my wife, I met Sean and Linda and of course their three children. Later on, I worked with Linda, coached Hannah during her time in soccer and became friends with Sean. I would never profess to know the intimate lives they shared - only that they had problems and unfortunately their lives ended very tragically. However, I know that all that is spoken and written about cannot be undone - we have only our memories to comfort us. For me, I think about them a lot especially on days like today. With my thoughts of the Murphy family being so frequent, I could only imagine the pain that still resides in their families hearts, the emptiness that will be forever with those children.
The bitterness on this site is sad, however I suppose it helps to grieve. Ultimately, I pray that those children will never read these posts and will have pleasant thoughts about their mother and father in the years to come. I am comforted knowing that those children have been left in good hands, comforted to know that so much love has been and continues to be given to them.
For their benefit, please let future posts recall better memories, let it show those children that so many people still love and think about them daily, let it show compassion for their future years.

Jeffrey Dahmer is how he spelled his name, not Jeffrey Dammers. And you know what, he may have been recently having money issues, but believe me, his family was well taken care of! Go back and watch the news cast, that black Navigator in the driveway was Linda's truck! And the small house they once owed, was recently renovated to quite

the beautiful home! And all was done with

the business Sean owed. And let's not forget

the fact that Linda had just finished school.

So Sean may be looked at in many ways

right now, but to say he couldn't provide for
his family is totally wrong. Obviously you
didn't know the couple very well. As I have
said before, Sean was very much a family
man, who always said he couldn't live without
his wife and kids. And if you knew them, you

would know that. And again, for the record,

he didn't rape the babysitter, he had sex with
his girlfriend. Maybe she got scared after he
told her that he killed Linda, but she was
never raped. And yes, he was wrong with
having a girlfriend that was so young, but
either way it was consentual. So before you
come on the board and start running your
trap....know your facts...and if you didnt know
them...just keep your mouth shut.
Family men do not kill their children nor do they have girlfriends. Read what you wrote moron

i don't know if anyone still looks at this but to say a 16 year old girl is to blame for all of this and to say that she was his girlfriend is wrong. None of you know what happened that day and i can say first hand that i know she wasn't his girlfriend so for all of you to sit her and say different your wrong. You are all pointing your fingers at the wrong person she was a child at the time and you are all sitting her bad mouthing her how do you look ? Does it make you all feel better to put the blame on her ? Did you all forget that they were both having a affair ? Did any of you realize that Sean started to loose his mind when Kevin passed away ? All you people that "care so much about him" were no where to be found when he needed someone were you ? None of you went out of your way to help them at all ? Where were all you people that cared so much huh? Maybe if everyone would stop pointing fingers and open their eyes and see what really happened everyone wouldn't be so bitter anymore but you are all to immature and ignorant to do that. You guys are pathetic for blaming a 16 year old girl for something a grown man did to her.

Who is the Kevin who you are talking about? Who died? I am his cousin Joy. No one even thinks that a child and an adult can have an affair in our family as you stated in your comment. So who are you talking about? If Sean had an affair with a child we are all dissapointed in his actions. We love him and think he's a

I was good friends with lina in high school. We went through a lot together at that time. I used to babysit sean and his brother. I am well aware of his personality and how his dad was. He was no different than his father. Sean was always controling with linda right down to how full his cup would have to be. Carol knows everything about her sister and sean more so than anyone. Linda didn't deserve any of what he did to her over the yrs. I just pray that her children don't suffer any reprocussions to how there dad was. Those 2 kids were her world. That is all she ever wanted was to have those kids. Anyone who knows linda and her family knows what a great family she has. Anyone that really new sean knows the truth as well. The apple didn't fall far from the tree. He did what he saw. I miss linda everyday.
