And it wasn't his stepdad. It was just a man (Barry Havener) who was also living at the hotel. Said he got sick of listening to them run around the hall.

Yes. His name was Christopher Hakola. His little brother's name is Brandon Hakola. Christopher died from skull fractures. His brother survived. It happened at Knight's Inn, across from Gabes's Tower on Triplett Street, September 5th 1999. The boys were attacked by Barry Lynn Havener, age 40. Havener's mother said she had been trying to get help for her son, Barry, for a long time. He had a criminal record of theft and she thought he might be schizophrenic.

The child's name was Christopher James Hakola. His brother's name was Brandon. Brandon survived, but was in serious condition. It happened at Knight's Inn on Triplett Street in Owensboro Ky, September the 5th 1999. Knight's Inn was across the parking lot from Gabe's Tower. It has since been torn down. More problems occured there. Barry Lynn Havener attacked both boys. The mother and father were separated. The mother stayed there because she and the boys were about to move into a new mobile home.

Barry Lynn Havener's mother said she had been trying for a long time to get help for her son. He also had a criminal record of theft. She thought that Barry might be schizophrenic. I heard no more after that.

It happened in the tower. If I remember correctly, the guy tried to throw one (or both) of the boys out the window too, but the glass didn't break. The guy was Shane Havener's dad.
