I actually knew the family, mainly the younger brother. I saw him just days before the murder. When people in the community have talked about him they treat him as if he was only about 9 years old. He was only about the size of a 9 or 10 year old. I never witnessed him ever saying anything in front of me that I thought was unusual for a 13 year to say. He might of been a little bit of a problem child for his neighborhood but his neighborhood has a very Pleasantville feel to it. Any problem kids were not that big of a problem to other neighborhood standards. Most of the problems in the neighborhood have been kids not looking when they cross the street. There is very little crime in Roanoke, actually, this is the first murder. I have actually read the police reports. No where in the police reports have they found anything that links the 13 brother (just turned 14 year old) to the murder except his prescence in his mother's car. They have found evidence that the 17 year old daughter, 16 year old boyfriend and 15 year old friend were linked with drawings and written notes. The news keeps stating that the 4 planned the murder, however, if you take the time to read the police reports (I have read them several times)the 14 year old brother is rarely mentioned. His locker at school was searched but there was nothing found. I have found that sometimes the news media will report on things and they may not be entirely true, just mostly true. Yes, the brother is charged, however, I don't think he planned the murder. The 3 teenagers might of planned the murder and the younger brother was caught in the crossfire. I have a hard time believing that I talked to a murderer just days before the murder while he was planning it. He was a happy boy on that day and talked about designing video games when he grew up like most 13 year boys. He was smiling and happy, not somebody that you would or even could murder someone. He even spoke kind words about his mother. I don't know about the other three. I only knew the sister in passing and had not talked to her in over a year.
You must have missed this part:

The affidavit also has information about the discovery of notes, allegedly detailing the plot to murder Bailey. The handwritten notes were allegedly kept by the victim's son and were discovered in the 14-year-old's school locker at Medlin Middle School in Trophy Club.

The search warrant also reveals that along with the notebook, a copy of the book "Dragon's Blood" was found inside the locker of Bailey's son. The book, Dragon's Blood, is reportedly a fantasy story filled with demonic undertones.

Go ahead, get the ugly comments ready, because I'm going to say it... how can you ask "how can this happen" when you take God out of schools... let television babysit... Goodness forbid you spank your child while he/she throws a tantrum in the mall, restaraunt, parking lot, grocery store... buy them that new x-box and see how much daylight they see over the next year. How about trying what I did... when your kids are bad - spank them. When they throw a tantrum - leave the cart - take them home and spank them (ok fine, you don't believe in spanking - do something - TAKE THE X-BOX, GAMEBOY, PLAYSTATION and throw it in the trash or sell it on ebay)... when they get too old for spanking and the grades turn bad - go sit in math class with them... be a part of their lives - not absent from it. Turn the television off. Start a game night. Start a family night. Play outside. Teach them how to garden. Oh go ahead, give me your insults - I know they are coming. But I did it. I was a work-a-holic Mother. And one day, I flipped the switch and made a change in my life, and now, I am always the constant in my kids lives. I know every detail of it... and ironically, now when they have a problem... I'm the first one they come to. I had my oldest son write a paper in school on heroes... and much to my surprise, it was the Mom that gave it all up to become... a MOM that was his hero. The rules of the house are simple... homework first, dinner at the table - every night possible, conversation, communication and trust. If Mom and Dad knows what's going on in their lives, is active in their lives - and the kids know what morality is because they attend church (or their parents teach them and not just with words), when they find their moral compass - then why on earth would any of them think of doing such a thing?
The simple truth of the matter is... they wouldn't.
Other than that - I'd say you'd have to chalk it up to a mental disability.
Small Town Girl, where were you when I was wife hunting? You are my dream come true and if more women felt the same way, we'd see more respectful kids in schools, more well-balanced kids in this country, and we'd most definitely see a resurgence in family pride which would probably spill over into American pride! Maybe a bit far-fetched, but it would be a beginning!

Kudos to you!

Well, I am flattered. But the most ironic thing to me is that I am constantly asked, "how'd you do it?" Every time one of my kids comes home from a friends house - I get the "wow, they were so great" speech. I have never beat my children (like some crazy people think spanking is) and I don't think I've had to spank the oldest three since they were all about nine years old, but one raised eyebrow from me and any kind of behavior issue ceases. They aren't afraid of me either... isn't that ironic? They just respect me and love me and listen to me because I don't talk in "I remember when's" but more "I understand, and if you are asking me for my advice, it is...." and sometimes I just sit there and listen because that's all they really want - is for someone to hear them. When you give them a voice - it's amazing what they will say.
