Can't find any reference anywhere to the name of the shooter or people. IS THIS the man? The vet's ex-husband? If so we know the kids, were they involved too? Can't find anything on the TV or internet that goes into any details.
I may know the children too, if it is who I am thinking of. This is horrible, my prayers are with all involved.Please just post facts here people, there has been too much speculation.

According to the state property tax records, the current owners of 443 Mooresburg Springs Rd are Dennis Christian and his wife Holly.

Michael Paffhausen was living at this address though a month ago.

"Michael Paffhausen, 51, 443 Mooresburg Springs Road, Mooresburg, phone harassment, phone harassment, bound over to the grand jury."

So this means Michael Paffhausen was renting the property from Dennis and Holly Christian. While there, he got into trouble with the law.

Looks to me like these are the two victims and the shooter.

You are not quite correct. Dennis Christian and his wife were separated. Mr. Christian was one of the victims, along with a female guest of his home. However, his soon to be ex-wife was not injured. The shooter was not Mr. Paffhausen, but a family member of Mr. Christian.

Yes, reports are now that the shooter was the son of Christian's former wife, and the woman shot was Brandy Seal. The step-son is a drug addict who had robbed Denny's house. The killing was a retaliation for their reporting his burglary to the police.

I am thinking she was Denny's girlfriend. Who knows about the ax? You will probably hear everything.

If Brandy really is the woman who was shot she is the best friend of his daughter and this is unbelievably sad. She has lost her father, brother, and best friend in one night. I can't even begin to imagine how they are going to come to peace with all of this, if they ever will. But I have known all of the family since we were 4yrs old and I hope and pray that this is untrue and just gossip that it's just gotten out of control. If not I hope God is with them.

Breaking News: Victims of murder-suicide identified
Robert Moore

The double murder-suicide that claimed the lives of two men and a woman in Mooresburg Monday night and early this morning was a fatally flawed family affair, authorities say.



The shooter that ultimately took his own life is Darran Blevins, who was in his 20s, District Attorney General C. Berkeley Bell Jr. confirmed this afternoon.



The targets of Blevins&#8217; aggression were his ex-stepfather, Dennis Christian, who is in his mid-60s, and Christian&#8217;s twenty-something live-in girlfriend, Brandy Seal, Bell said.



Christian and Blevins&#8217; mother are no longer married. Seal reportedly was close friends with one of Christian&#8217;s daughters.



The prosecutor said Hawkins County deputies had been called to Christian&#8217;s Mooresburg Springs Road residence on prior occasions to settle disputes between Blevins and Christian.



Around 8 p.m. Monday, law enforcement officials responded to a report of shots being fired inside a barn on the property, which had been converted to apartments.



Shortly after the initial blasts, Blevins&#8217; head emerged from an upstairs window, according to Hawkins County Detective Capt. Randy Collier, who added the man was holding a firearm.



A tactical team entered the ground floor of the barn, but withdrew when they heard footsteps upstairs.



Before sunrise, the team re-entered the structure and found Blevins&#8217; dead body upstairs. Blevins apparently died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Other officials closely involved in the death investigation include Hawkins County detectives Jeff Greer and David LaFollette, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Agent Scottie Ferguson and Teddy Collingsworth, a criminal investigator with the DA&#8217;s office.

Why do the articles keep saying Brandy was his girlfriend? A family friend has said on one of these threads that Brandy was working for him as a home aide to assist with some medical problems he was having.

It seems the only source of that story of a girlfriend would have to be the ex-wife who the police say they got information from. And Darran the murderer was living with his mom the ex-wife.

Did Darran kill them because he believed he was avenging his mother's honor, based on things his mother told him, which may not have even been true?
