Good grief, it doesn't matter how much their house cost or if they are rich or not!

Five people died, that's what matters!!

That house is below my parents house where I grew up. First off our house is worth a lot but it didn't cost that much to build, but that is besides the point, what does it matter how much the house is worth? 5 people were killed. It is a total tragedy. Imagine if you were the family member to walk in there and find 5 loved ones dead. How gruesome it must have been especially since they were deceased for weeks. Very sad. But if they were all shot how did no one hear 5 gunshots in sea pointe????

I found that weird too Hadley, the no one hearing the shots. Perhaps a silencer? The value of the house doesnt compare to value of human life, thats for sure

Who cares how much the house is worth. There all dead big deal. Move on with your life your not dead yet. Besides they probably couldnt afford the payments and say suicide as the only solution

Was their option ARM mortgage resetting or something to cause such a rash decision?

The fact that the bodies were "terribly, terribly decomposed" means that nobody missed any of these five people for quite some time.

How depressing is that?

the neighbor used the words "over the top" when she described the father, what did that mean

I was wondering, if they had cell phones and no one answered even if they when on a trip. Two or three weeks and no one answered phones, the first three days would be a red flag!

Why is it these miserable douche bags take out the whole family instead of just putting a slug in their own head? This tragedy just doesn't effect the direct family members but all the people that read this story. All because it was all about "me" and how I was feeling and because I feel like sh*t why should anybody else in my familybe happy ... bang your dead .. how twisted can you get ....

Next ... isn't that ptiful

As far as not hearing the gunshots.....these are BIG houses in this neighborhood. I grew up a few minutes down the road and had a few friends who lived in Seapoint. We're talking 5-6 bedrooms, sprawled across three stories. This story took a whole new meaning when I realized I had gone to school with the daughters. Its surreal.

They are nuts. It takes a different kind of a person to take another persons life. Someone IN the house heard something, and probably tried to get away from the guy with the gun. How could you shoot and kill your family and think somehow that is a good thing? They are nuts. What is it that we can live next door to our neighbor and watch the mail pile up and see the cars in the driveway and no one goes to school and no one leaves, uses ATM, calls friends, and not one person notices anything. In a GATED community that is "safer". Something is very wrong. Shooting and killing three generations of family? This guy is a coward who will meet his maker and his family will be there on his makers lap.

Take an anger management class. Get a grip. Get over yourself and morn for the family that is now dead at the hands of their own father. That is the point. That is what is so very sad.

My relatives used to live in San Clemente when Richard Nixon still called San Clemente home. That was during Watergate. It was a peaceful and safe town and everybody was law-abiding, except for Mr. Nixon himself. To some extent, it's still peaceful and quiet with little crime. My relatives enjoyed the beach, particularly San Clemente State Beach and the Trestles. The beach near and at President Nixon's former home was off limits to the public when Nixon was president. My uncle actually saw Nixon walked on the beach in his dress shoes and trousers wearing a windbreaker with a presidential seal on it. What an awkward moment! Here was a man who happened to be the president of the U.S. and he's walking on the beach in his office clothes as if he's taking a brief time off from his official duties by strolling on the beach.

There is probably a lot we don't know yet. It is sad nobody missed the people -- for weeks. It is sad when someone takes the life of others because the person is depressed. The question is why and what happened. It's always a tragedy when this happens. I feel sorry for those that found their bodies. it must have been terrible.

I live in Sea Pointe only a few streets away. The police were called several times but couldn't find any foul play so they left. They even had a tow truck company let them into the car to see if they could access the garage. Most homes in our tract are spread out more than other areas and they are large but their house is very close to the next one so I am surprised that no one heard the gun shot. My neighbor leaves for long periods of time constantly so I wouldn't have thought anything of them being gone for more than a week. My heart breaks for their poor family. I wish someone could have helped them before it came to this.
