I am sure there were some sort of secrets in this family. A 12 year old doesn't just kill his parents for no reason at all.

Why don't these people let their children go to school.
I understand if you have an ill child that cannot go to school with others. Just look how some of these home schooled kids turn out.I work in retail
and these parents that are supposed to be home schooling their children have them out shopping.
Let your children grow up.Some of these kids will not even talk to you.

Jay, study the statistics a little bit. Homeschooling works extremely well. On the average home-schooled kids turn out better socially and academically than public-schooled kids. The State just cannot do as good a job a private individuals or parents. As for kids shopping during school time, the truth is, kids only need to study a few hours a day to exceed state requirements. Why should they have to sit in study hall or have whistle-chair time, when they can be out doing truly constructive things. This kid in the story is not a common thing, and you guys act as if this NEVER happens with kids that are not Christian or home-schooled. Ridiculous!

Video games and music have nothing to do with improper parenting. Get your head out of your a$$.

Typical rocket science on display here. Must have played too many video games and listened to the wrong kind of music.

Disagree that he 2 siblings will "fully recover". What about their psychological well-being--their parent were murdered and they were shot--by their brother! How sad...

Some home schooled kids go to college and do quite well, the statistics are about even. All but two college 'killings' were done by college educated people.

There is most likely a reason that this 12 year old killed his parents. abuse? mental illness?
etc. There has to be some reason a 12 year old would do that.

A very happy and active person would have a much more clear grasp on life. Knowing this, you should not have such a closed mind on music and video games.

Your laughter is not a result of my insults, it's your ignorance shining through your thin shell.

I think that people are too quick to judge. Nobody knows what motivated this kid to kill. It could have to do with homeschooling, church, and video games, but it may have nothing to do with any of that. We don't know enough about the situation or the family. Personally, I don't know how people can home school their children. It is just not for me. I don't feel that our public school system does enough, but I supplement at home. There are pros and cons to home schooling, just as there are pros and cons to public schools. The saddest part is that something happened that made this child kill and hurt his family members. His siblings that did survive have a long, tough road ahead of them. I only hope they come out of this with as little permanent damage as possible both physically and emotionally. My heart goes out to them.

I thank you Hillarie for your comment on judging to fast. I grew up in this town and people are very close with each other. We are all in shock over this. There is an old saying "Don't judge a book by it's cover" and I feel that there is a lot of looking at a cover and not the book here. These were good people and good kids. No one can figure out what happened to this little boy or what was going through his mind and we may never know. These were very well rounded kids even though they were home schooled and that should not even matter. The thing that does matter is the well being of the surving family members. We should all be praying for them and saying what you may think they did wrong.

Thank you Hillary. How are the 4 older children coping? It is great the little children have such a caring uncle who is willing and able to help them through the rough road ahead. These were sincere good people who were dear friends to my parents.

The older children are coping as well as they can, one of which I know very well. It is hard for them to understand what happened with their little brother and they just can't believe it.

my best guess is that it was about the 12yr old feeling like he was being treated unfair, that the parents loved the younger two more,that no matter how good he was, it was never enough and things just got out of hand big time. his thinking was all or nothing, permanent solution to a temporary problem. his "ID" just took over, running over his "ego" like a freight train and so his ego didn`t get a chance to reason or control the "ID" and allow the Superego to rule.
