God must have been looking out for us," Cindy Liskey said.

"We were right in the line of fire," Earl added.

Did you people ever stop to think that God woke Cindy and Earl up from their sleep ten minutes before Jonathan got and loaded his rifle and shot his wife.

Did they call the police ? No, they went back to bed.

Who was in the line of fire, Earl ? Andrea was.

Pathetic.

A bullet broke a framed PHOTO of Jesus? I didn't realize they had cameras back then.

Thats the best post yet, I gotta give it to you for picking that out. I was also wondering, Mrs. Liskey said god was looking after them, what about Mrs. Eisenhauer and the dog?. They must have done something to piss god off.

Jonathan Eisenhauer is a piece of garbage and should have turned the gun on himself before harming anyone else. From your past criminal record it sounds like you would have been doing everyone a favor. May you burn in hell.

Without question. They should take it to the Antiques Roadshow and get it appraised. No doubt it has both historical and monetary value.

Quote: "Cindy checked to see what was happening outside of their window, but Earl told her to back away from it.

The couple decided to go back to bed.

Just 10 minutes later they were jolted out of bed shortly after 4 a.m. when they heard gunfire erupt from the home of 30-year-old Jonathan Paul Eisenhauer during a standoff with state troopers."
"The Smiths also were roused out of bed by the gunfire and called 9-1-1.

"Something like this is not supposed to happen here, that's why we live here," Mike Smith said.

Wow - I wonder what would have happened if the police would have been called before the gunfire started. I wonder if this stuff is not supposed to happen "here" where it's supposed to happen.

A tragic incident from many different angles.

Who the h*ll hears shouting around 3 a.m., loud enough to wake them up, and goes back to sleep??? In the "not-supposed-to-happen-h ere" area where it's obviously not a normal occurrence?

I'm also having a hard time wrapping my head around the statement that all 7 bullets came, of course, from the suspect's gun...nevermind he was firing at 5 troopers, he had time and ammo to pepper the neighbor's house.

All that is missing in this story was a full body shot photo of said wounded refridgerator to reveal the case of Bud Light.

Earl you quite possibly could have been the one person who may have been able to save her life, but you told Cindy to come away from the window. Nice!

It's funny how everyone is blaming the neighbors for this low life killing his wife. The only person responsible for this is behind bars where he belongs.

The posts bashing the John are on a different thread.

This thread is about the neighbors who did NOTHING when they knew somehting was wrong. When was the last time your were awoken at 4:00 in the morning to neighbors fighting?

Just for the record Earl and Cindy are wonderful people. Maybe they should have called the police but have you looked at it through their eyes if it had turned out to be just another disturbance they still had to live next to him It's so very sad this happened to such a great person. And little Maddy is the one who has to suffer the most. Also Earl and Cindy lost a daughter to cancer they are not heartless people!!!!!!!

Maybe the Earl and Cindy are wonderful and religious and decent people. It is not their fault that Jonathan did what he did. However it doesn't take away the fact that they were awoken by an argument in the middle of the night and they did not call the police, it not for them thinking that something violent was going to take place but at least for disturbing the peace. There may have been previous incidents of disturbances next door but staying uninvolved may have cost Amanda and the dog their lives. It is not necessarily for us to judge but it is our responsibility to question. The world is a dangerous place. No matter where you live....
