I agree. What a tragedy. I do hope it is all settled very soon. The families definitely need to grieve in some kind of peace. I pray for all.

Really people you need to let it rest, All the answers went with her when they died, so guess what ever you want but one thing for CERTIAN no matter what u or any body else says it isnt going to bring them back. So let the families grive in their own ways and let Beth and her children rest in peace. Get on with your lifes and leave the families alone. Why keep this going with no answers will be found.. And if and when the investagations are over with you all still wont bleieve the truth.

I've heard about this on my local news and in the Newspaper online. This morning the online paper said funeral service for the woman will be tomorrow. Anyhow I clicked on it and read then went to view her obituary. I think it's pathetic that she was given a video tribute and an online memorial with virtual candles. I didn't see anything like that for either of the children. It looks like someone has put a lot of money into the funeral of a murderer. All I seen online for the children was a standard obituary and one picture. Why?

First, so much has been wrote on here, in the newspapers and on the news.
Both familys are hurting.
My brother and sister in law are having a funeral for there daughter tomorrow, you ask why they was not a video tribute and a online memorial with virtual candles, for that answer you would have to ask Boyles funeral home or Beths husband or family, my brother & sister in law learned of the funeral just like everyone else, we were called a few days before the funeral by Boyles funeral home to tell the family we were welcome to come.
My brother and sister in law was left to have a funeral for there daughter,you must not know my brother and sister in law or you would know they do not have all the money for a big funeral, Hardman Paletti are working with my brother and sister in law to pay for there daughters funeral.
For the picture and candle, that comes with Hardman Paletti funeral.
Hope that gives you a answers on the money.
As for the murderer as you said, if you know anything that would be helpful to the police, PLEASE contact them.
The police has yet to tell my brother or sister in law anything.

The children's funeral were at a different funeral home than their mother. So, Hardman Paletti does the virtual candles and all that jazz and Boyle does not.

Someone had to pay extra for the OPTIONAL stuff. The video isn't free and neither is the online memorial. My point is that she is getting more recognition than the children she killed. It's not right! Don't say we'll it's because the funeral home the children were at didn't have those options.

You are a sick puppy. Stop trying to blame an innocent person and stop trying to crucify her family. Doug either killed them or knows who did it. "Don't know them," you live up to your name. You don't know them so shut up.

Not for us to judge the greiving's choices for remembering their loved one. Funerals, memorials, and tributes are for the ones left behind. If this was my daughter, I would want to focus on the good memories, escape the speculation about who is at fault, and grieve. As to why the children did not get the same add on services, it is possible that different people did the planning for theirs and opted to skip the se options.

Everyone is quick to judge, but how does anyone know when they were shot. They all were shot the last report said they were shot and then placed in the barn. So if that is the case then how could she have done this? maybe you need to be looking at someone else usually the one who acts so perfect is the one to blame!! Just saying. Maybe she wasn't the one with the mental issues!!!!!!!!!!

My Prayers are that they find out who really done this and they pay for what they have done. I pray for the family that God gives them strength and comfort to get through this. The pain they are feeling is more that we can even begin to understand, unless you have walked in thier shoes you don't even begin to know thier pain. There will always be a part of them missing. Only God can help them through this. And we need to pray for them every day for strength and comfort. So if you want to do something good then pray for them...don't try to cause them more hurt.

Why should anyone be told to "keep thier nose out"? The way I see it is that this is a PUBLIC forum and everyone is intitled to their OPINION! From what I have read on this topic and from what I have seen about this topic on the news, HMM NONE of you were there..NONE of you know the truth and ALL you people can do is SPECULATE what happened that very sad day. It is so sad that people have to argue back and forth over something they do not even have all of the details about. I think that it is sad when people that did know both families have to come to a place like this and fight like children. The families should be embracing positive comments from those that didn't know the families and that took the time from their lives to offer some prayers and encouraging words. I pray that all of you find peace in your heart and your lives. I pray that all of you find the answers that you need to put the families to rest.

The Lewis County Prosecuting Attorney has announced a press conference scheduled for Thursday morning regarding the Nov. 12 deaths of Beth Kraus, 32, Kaden Kraus, 5, and Kiera Kraus, 3.

The State Medical Examiner's office determined that the three were shot before being found in a barn on their family's property.

The Lewis County Sheriff's Office is the lead investigating agency on this case. No arrests have been made at this time.
