I think the police should focus on others besides just Sam Sallee I dont think he did this horrible crime I have known him for several years Yes he has a bad past and has dont terrible things I just dont think he did this If he did (?) he didnt do it on his own. They all ready have him Quilty. No one really knows Sam they just choose to go by his past If u knew his child hood u would know why he has had such a horrible horrible life. If he did do this He didnt do this by hisself. I wish they would tell what all evidence they have on him this.

In the 911 call, the son said that the first thing he noticed was that the big screen TV was missing.

So, we should believe that this ONE old guy was able to shoot these three much younger men and a woman multiple times all by himself?
If this guy acted alone, and shot each one multiple times, wouldn't it seem that at least one of the bodies would have been found close to the back door? Wouldn't at least one of them have tried to get away while he was shooting the others?
I don't know how "big" the big screen TV was, but, surely it was heavy. Yet, Sallee was able to pack it off single handedly?
And all of this happened prior to 10:30pm on a Saturday night. There are other houses nearby, but, no one heard a thing.
Amazing!

I think ur right not one man can do this on his own. Sallee gave and interview to Indianapolis Star said that he was there working on a boat with one of the guys which was a friend. the friend got a phone call and was arguing with the person on the other end of the phone, well ok then the po po should be getting phone records and Sallee said he has an alaby for where he was ok then the po po should be looking in to that. there has to be DNA every where they had to get the clothing from Sallees home , they have a gun but its not the one used in the killings ok where the hell is the gun??? I cant see Sallee being able to carry a big screen out by himself or even shooting all for plp and stabbing one then taking the time to carry all these things out of the house. with out knowing if the neighbors heard the gunshots. seems like he would have just got the hell out of there. but who knows guess we will find out whats going on when the po po release the rest of the evidence and the DNA. Not just one person did this crime no way, this was a meth house sad sad sad, Im just saying that Drugs never end good It messes up alot of lives and takes and takes from plp till it totally distroys their lives. I feel for the familys of thoses plp.. I think plp need to get off that shit and get help its really really sad.

well I agree on alot of the things u said doesnt make alot of sence I know the Sallee guy and really dont think he did this, but like u said Drugs holds a BIG part in all this. Drugs change plp everyday. I know Sallee had a real tough life growing up bit still dont beleive he did this I know if for some reason he did this it must have been the drugs thats really sad I wish the truth would come out, I hope Sallee isnt framed for something he didnt do. But if he did I hope the truth comes out. I think they should look at a few others no one man did this on his own, no way. The pictures of all the plp killed was taken from mug shots from jail they should have posted better pics. Just saying Drugs never end good so i agree with u just hope the truth comees out soon
and they get the right one not the one they think did this.

If this crime was drug related, why did they take the TV, but, leave the meth?

Just becouse meth was found doesnt mean there wasnt some of it gone or some other type of drug, Seems like they are being quiet for now for a reason. Where is the lab results why is he not charged yet ??

If your're involved in drugs, you get what you get. No sympathy.
