Well,here we go again. We are trying find reason were there is none.
This person was extremely selfish and angry to be walking around free, when he has already been violent with her in the first place.
The age old question...... why did she agree to go anywhere with this guy?
That's what I mean with trying to find reason, when there is no reasoning at all.

He probably threatened her- restraining orders mean nothing- like locks, they are only meant to deter honest people. And if she had shot him first, she would be in trouble. I would take that chance if I got caught up in a relationship with a brute. I hope she makes it. My friend Margo Green (Pruess) was murdered downtown Denver in May, 1991, during morning rush- people thought it was a movie. She had finally gotten away from him, finished her education, and was starting her new job that day. If we, her friends, had been able to, we would have killed that SOB before he hurt her so much- she was such a lovely person. I miss her, and I think of her often, and this stuff brings it all back.

Blogging about other peoples tragedy is a sick passtime. Oh yeahh! and selling advertizing while you do it is even sicker!

We should not judge, that needs to be left up to god. He was a very kind man and all I seem to be hearing about it all the wrong he has done. I make no excuses for what took place, but we need to keep in mind the pain,frustration,confusion and torment we have all felt. Both of them will be in my prayers for a long time to come.

Tiffany, you have got to be kidding! A 'very kind man' doesn't shoot his estranged wife in the head!
He was a terrorist. Obviously, he terrorized his wife. A very kind man would treat his wife with respect and kindness. Be very careful, or you'll find yourself in the same kind of relationship.

I have known Chris since for the better part of my life including the last 7 years with Randy. I personally never met Randy so all I have heard was from one side of the family's position however it has been time and time again that we have heard this. She finally got the nerve to leave and he does this. May god be with Chris and her kids as they cope and hopefully heal from this tragedy. As for Randy I personally think he got off easy with his quick exit.

You people have no idea what happened and who are you to judge someone that you don't even know. She wasn't shot in the head as the lovley news has said.

I agree with Tiffany V. I have been in their lives for years. He was a great man. Yes what he did was very wrong, and I will not make excuses for what he has done. But the press has made him into a monster. Their family and friends are feeling so much sadness, frustration, confusion, and torment. I love them both and will keep loving them both! He did a very wrong thing, but he will always be in my heart as the guy I knew him as! AND she was NOT shot in the head..get your information together FOX news before you report! Both of them and their families will be in my prayers. For anyone that didnt know them, can stop blogging about the family's loss and tragedy!!!!!

I knew Randy. We had worked together for 2 years and I never once got the feeling he was a violent person. I considered him to be a big teddy bear an I always will. It just goes to show you. You think you know but you really have no idea. Randy will be misses. Many Many prayers to his wife. I have faith she will make it through this tragedy and it will make her stronger.

Obviously Randy had some major issues that only he and Chris knew about. The reason I say this is that if any of his family knew, cared or loved him, they would have found help for him - he had a huge family. Its so sad that it had to come down to this. Prayers to Chris and the kids and here's hoping no one else's family turns a blind eye on a family memeber that was crying out for help.

No one knows what goes on behind closed doors. It sure sounds like Randy was really good at convincing people that he was one of the "good guys", but his final act proved otherwise. One of the other local news web sites mentioned his violent past with a former wife, but his family seems to want to defend him and convince everyone that he was a "great man". Give me a break!

I also heard that it was Randy's family who refused to allow his organs to be donated. Doesn't speak well of his family, IMO. If his organs would have been donated to people who will die without a new kidney or liver, Randy could have done something good for mankind even after his wife. Too late for that now.

Sally Ann - they did donate Randy's organs, not sure where you heard they hadn't. Thats why they were keeping him on life support for so long. In Randy's defense (not sure why I'm defending him) his former wife was crazy - trust me!!! I know it doesn't give Randy permission to be violent but she possibly is the reason Randy snapped the way he did. Randy came from a broken family which again is no excuse but that whole family has seen and been through so much! I'm just hoping that Chris will find a way to heal and move on.

Tiffany, God gave us the ability to judge for a reason. Someone with a history of domestic violence is not "a very kind man". I have felt pain, frustration, confusion, and torment -- at the hands of Randy Waggoner, when I dated him as a teenager. He didn't get the help he needed because he was happy to have power over other people, and his victims didn't get the help they needed because Randy was charming and people made excuses for his absolutely psychotic behaviors.

The only words and actions you know of Randy are the ones you observed on tv! The ones we speak of are the ones we knew about Randy(the good and the bad) so maybe keeping you option to yourself might be a good idea since you had no clue who he was and what he was thinking or was even about. I think you might be watching just a little tooooo much tv.

Tiffany, obviously you don't want to believe anything negative about Randy. But, Rocky Mountain Diva from Oklahoma has a history with Randy when she dated him as a teenager! He was psychotic then! What makes you think he changed? Wake up people! Quite defending this crazy lunatic. Thank God he's .l

Randy is the reason he snapped. A lot of people come from broken families and don't terrorize girlfriends or kill wives. Anyone who knows Randy knows that he got away with A LOT.

Rocky Mountain Diva - If you had reported the "abuse" you were receiving at the hands of Randy Waggoner back when you dated him, maybe he would have received the help he needed by now. Everyone including yourself turned a blind eye to him and his problems.

Hey Littleton Girl, I made more than one police report. Maybe that scare is why he apparently was pretty stable in his 20s. Look, I'm not saying he was a monster. He was a flawed person. He was a hard worker and built a better life for himself than many people predicted. At the same time, he had anger and control issues and he did not respect boundaries, legally or socially.

I don't know how you know him, but anyone who knew him in his early adult years can figure out who I am, and I was and still am a decent, honest person. Don't blame his victims. His problems were his responsibility. I don't know if he tried to get help or not, but I promise you that he knew he needed help.
