Many people at Milton Towers knew he was thinking about this. He had been talking about it for 2 or 3 weeks.

That many people knew what was going on and failed to notify anyone infuriates and shocks me.

I was told by 1 person "Well he just didn't tell the right person." Obviously they weren't the right people because they did nothing for this family in crisis.

Now what are they "the collective group of people who knew this was going to happen" doing? Gossiping about it.

Words cannot describe my anger at them for not acting by calling a mental health professional or telling someone in the office.

It is a very unfortunate situatuion for EVERYONE involved. Family, friends, and acquintances, WE are all greiving for Faye and praying for Jim.
It is though hard to say what someone could've or should've done. The only ones that know the full extent of their situation are Jim, Faye, and God. As they say...Unless you have walked a mile in their have no way of knowing what You would have done.
We should not be dwelling on the what if's...but dealing with the now's.

I can not beleive that the person from Omaha, Ne is condoning murder. I do not know anything about this event, but a woman was killed. She may have been sick, or very disabled. Or he may have become ill or disabled. I do not know. He probably loved his wife very much, and dreaded doing such an awful thing. I hope so.
However, this is a failure of society. People around had an obligation, born from simple humanity, to try to help. If the couple were unable to respond or see another way out, someone in the public domain should have been contacted.
