I know the Revards. Ray seemed to love is family very much. I can't imagine him killing his wife. Leah had some problems with coping, anxiety and depression. I hope for the sake of the kids, the truth comes out.

look at the evidence before you try to assume things.

Wouldn't you be depressed and have trouble coping if you were in an abusive relationship?

Stop posting!!!! God knows the truth and the bible says that we should not judge. Ray and Lea have two wonderful children who are very smart and get on the internet. For the sake of the kids STOP POSTING!!!!!!!!!!

We need to show some compassion and respect for both families here! I know that these are seriously un-real times, but both sides are hurting enough that you people dont need to make things WORSE for the families by BASHING Ray and Lea! YOU DONT KNOW THE FACTS! So saying the WRONG personal information on the internet for everyone to know is IGNORANT! Until you know the FACTS, i insist you stop ACTING like you do!. There is no need to make things worse.

In such an awfull situation; Acting like you know everything about someone's relationship then saying so, because nobody knows who you are, on the internet, is both SAD and disrespectful!

For both families, YOU ARE IN MY PRAYERS AND I LOVE YOU!

WOW, Someone who DOES know the family....I hope that if you have DIRECT knowledge of this, you will pass this information to the investigators, because this is a very important piece of information....

The Coroner has ruled it a HOMICIDE, and unless there was an intruder.. well, we know who will be the prime suspect, but that is not for us to decide or assume, I honestly hope that this is not the case

As for the kids, my heart breaks for them, they have lost BOTH parents now, but this isn't the first tragedy to befall the Revard family, I hope there are no more.

YES, the kids are smart, but right now I suspect they are being fairly shielded from the ugly news, and the few innocuous statements made here will pale compared to what they may hear about this sordid affair in the future..I truly feel for them.

As for Raymond, Imagine if you will, what it would be like to have suffered such a loss and to be wrongly accused of the crime....Guess we will see.

...You see, I too know this family and have for 30+ years, and regardless of our past, my heart goes out to each and every one of them, but especially to the kids and Lea's Mom and Dad.

I hope the answers are found and that Lea may rest in peace.

I've known Ray & Lea since BEFORE the birth of their son. I consider Ray one of my closest friends. Until this incident, my wife talked with Lea regularly and she NEVER ONCE mentioned or as much as insinuated that Ray was abusive. I regularly talked with Ray and I know the issues they were having and violence wasn't one of them. I find it incomprehensible that Ray could have done this. I think you will all be surprised when the truth comes out.

To the Florida friends.
YOU don't know the FACTS of this case and yes someone will be surprised(you) when you learn them. Go to Spencer county magnet.com for part of the story.
There are lots of kinds of abuse, some you can see other you can't.
The 13th was his hearing and he was held over for the grand jury.
The corner ruled it a HOMICIDE! The doctors(they see a lot of shot victims) at the hospital said she could NOT have done this where she was shot and where the bullitt came out.
I hope you all look at the FACTS before you make
reckless comments.

To "Her Dad". Sir, Please accept our deepest sympathy. My husband is having a hard time believing that someone we considered our friend could do such a horrible act. He means no disrespect to your family or Lea. We knew of some issues. I consider Lea a friend, talked to her often on the phone. There is a beautiful letter on my desk from that precious little girl. Wish I had an address to write her back, if I could find the words to say. Travis made me a cute little ornament for our Christmas tree and made it blue and orange for the Gators. My heart breaks for you and those children. We did know both Ray and Lea for a long time, enjoyed some wonderful times at the beach. These are the memories I will treasure, the way I want to remember each of them. Neither of us want to believe that this has happened and I ask myself daily if there was something I could have done to help. I will live with this question the rest of my life and will pray for the children daily. May God give you peace....with respect and sympathy.

Not sure about that, I heard he was working for an Uncle, but his SISTER is currently in Jail for Abducting her Daughter, who she does not have custody of......Ran off and hid with her after refusing to return her after visitation.....Crazy.

Justice for Lea

I surely hope Ray has been released only to be watched by detectives...hopefully he gets enough rope to hang himself with. I hope the children are smart enough to not be brainwashed into thinking their loving mother had a desire to remove herself from their lives...she is with you even now, and she needs justice.

My dad worked with Ray. The first time I met Leah was 2008 at my graduation party. They seemed fine but you never know.

It's unbelievable that he is out of jail, living with the kids, working, and carrying on life. What is Judge Hickman thinking? Raymond isn't even on electronic monitoring. Judge even allowed Raymond to take the kids out of state for vacation. What is our justice system coming to?

The justice system is a complete JOKE. "Government" IT should be on the menu.
