They did not have to kill that man, they must have just wanted to!
So just because they wanted to, I wonder how much time they'll get. Look what happens when you have no life! You just take someone elses. They're not even worth the name I want to call them!

"At some point during the event, the wife fled the home through a basement door," the news release said. "The two actors who had gone to the safe came back downstairs and discovered the wife was not around" and they fled through the basement door."

Actors? I thought they were Killers?

MC, you should have never fired your copy editors. The paper is filled with grammar mistakes everyday. It's embarassing!

So how do you expect her to do anything for them since she was apparently unarmed. When are the good law abiding sheeple going to learn that when seconds count the police are minutes away. When are the sheeple going to start standing up for themselves. Buy a gun, learn how to use it then carry it all the time. It's not that hard. After a while you feel undressed without it.

What business did this man have?

Bank robberies and home invasions seem to be on a sharply increasing plane.

I can't imagine leaving my children in a house with burglars. Maybe she had them hide in a really good spot. Very tough situation.

How about SO SHE COULD GO GET HELP!!!! What did you expect her to do by herself to help the kids when she saw they stabbed her husband? They would have just killed her, and then the kids. Running for help is the smart thing to do. And it worked too didn't it? SMARTEN UP instead of acting holier than thou! Why sit around doing nothing instead of getting help. Plus, they were adult kids the article said. Geez, talk about ignorant!

In the law enforcement world they use the term "actor" as one in the same as suspect/subject. You are thinking as in TV or in a movie....!!

Did you READ the Article?

THREE Men break in and kill her husband, and take HER and the ADULT Children to the basement.(though if this is the area I think the garage is under the home so she and her kids probably went down to see what was going on and were not taken to the basement)

Then TWO take HER upstairs and ONE stays Down to Guard the Adult Children.

She opened the safe and then I assume that they told her to return to the basement and did not actually accompany her there so she took her chance and ran. Probably thought it was the best to at least TRY to get help before the scum killed them ALL.

The Reporter has much more info

Police discovered the body of the 58-year-old man, bound by duct tape, in his garage Friday morning.
According to information presented at a press conference on Friday in Montgomery Township, three black males burst through a garage door at the home as it was being opened between 5 and 6 a.m.
Robert and Janice Chae were preparing to leave for work, according to authorities.
The suspects, reportedly carrying guns, stole an undisclosed amount of money from a safe and other items before fleeing around 6 a.m. in a dark-colored SUV, according to Steele.
They were heading toward DeKalb Pike, Steele said.
Anyone who may have seen anything suspicious is asked to contact the Montgomery Township Detective Bureau .
A knife was discovered at the scene, and early indications suggest the suspects had been casing the house, Steele said.
“Most home invasions are not random,” Steele said.“For three people to be in this suburban neighborhood when a garage door opens is very unlikely.”
Steele said Robert Chae was killed after being wrapped in duct tape.
According to officials, after the men assaulted Robert Chae, they took Janice Chae and two adult children to the basement, where they were all bound with duct tape.
While one suspect watched the adult children, two other intruders questioned Janice Chae about any money in the house, officials said.
Eventually, Janice Chae led them to a safe, which she opened, officials said.
The suspects fled the house from a basement door after realizing Janice Chae had escaped, according to authorities. She ran to a neighbor, who called 9-1-1 at 6 a.m., authorities said
Pam Lambert, who lives at 141 Gwynmont Drive, said Janice Chae frantically knocked on her door between 6 and 6:05 a.m.
“She kept saying,‘My husband, my husband,’” Lambert said.
The Chaes, owners of the Penn Center Beauty Supply at 3 West Penn Square, Philadelphia, left for work every weekday at 5 a.m., according to Lambert.
