This story seems awful fishy. Why would a mother kill her two children that she adored and herself? Then before she died she used an accelerant to burn the house down as well? Why was her husband not her friend on facebook? Has anyone bothered to read her facebook posts? Something isnt right here. I know there was a murder but not sure about a suicide..

I totally agree with you. You wrote what I was thinking. I just don;t understand why they put such stuff in newspaper without full investigation.

With all of the fires in the area, with others dead, and the supposed facts that the home was supposed to be vacant at the time, has anyone considered re-opening this case? No one else finds it suspicious that this happened to occur less than a month after the first arson in Streator, with a series of following arsons, one including another death? Time to open our eyes and consider something's going on.

I know the woman and children, not well, but I saw her with them and how she was towards them. I saw nothing but a devoted and loving mother and I honestly in my heart do not believe for a second that she is the one who did it. I think they missed something bc I just refuse to believe it. Oddly enough the husband moved right on afterwards to and is now either engaged or married to another woman and has another baby...this is within a few weeks or months of their deaths...fishy
