Did anyone ever stop to think that maybe the wife was fooling around. The divorce papers were a shock to him. He had no indication there was a problem. Let's not be so quick to point the finger. I know many men that had no idea there wives were cheating on them until the divorce papers were served...

To the upsetfriend poster: Get a life! I knew both of them and this is a tragedy beyond comprehension. Don't make stupid f'ing comments when you don't know what you're f'ing talking about! Let her rest in peace without trashing her name. Molly Rothgery was the sweetest person in the world and Mike had difficulties holding a job their entire relationship! Causes quite a strain idiot!!

How about Mike was a sick coward who needed to kill himself and only himself. Molly rocked and mike was a cold prick. I knew them both as well and Mike was unpopular and distant. I never trusted the dude. Women who feel threatened,GET A GUN and killer the AH before he kills you.

Upset friend, you seem to imply that this evil act could somehow be explained by infidelity. "Let's not be so quick to point the finger." WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? So let's say she was a philandering, horrible wife. That makes him NOT a murderer?!?!?!

I am a close relative of Mike and Molly Rothgery. I loved them both with all of my heart. This was a complete and total shock to both sides of the family. Molly was an AMAZING person who did not deserve this. Mike was also an amazing person who made a TERRIBLE mistake, to say the least. There is no point in trying to wrap your mind around what he was thinking. He was sick. I understand people's anger, but to say Mike Rothgery was always a bad person is untrue. If you honestly felt that way, you did not know him. Also, please keep in mind that both sides of the family are grieving the deaths of BOTH family members. None of us want to read these demeaning comments about either our Molly or Mike, so please be respectful.

First of all, what do any of you know about the situation? Molly was for sure not cheating on him. And really, no one just goes off and kills someone, mike was sick in the head. But definitely not in the heart. Both of these people were angels sent from heaven and they have now been returned to their true father.
