Please do a little more research before printing the only quick explaination that is available. The Bowen man had problems that did not directly involve his wife and the so-called love triangle. Whether or not his suspisions caused his actions, under normal circumstances, being of sound reasonable mind, people don't go to these lenghths without other unattented issues. His wifes death seemed to aleviate his underlined hatred as well as Mr. Pickles death. Hatred against his unemployment, his jealousy that was an on going problem for him in his marriage for years and life in general. He completed the task by taking his own life. What selfish disturbed concequences for his children and the families he destroyed...forever.

Perhaps you should do a little more research . Mr. Bowen told a relative over the phone, that she admitted to having an affair, and she wanted a Divorce ! That's when he shot her, and then drove to Mr. Pickle's office and shot him . He then drove back home and called a relative, telling them what he had done, and he was going to kill himself . They immediately called the Sheriff, but by the time they arrived, he had already shot himself, and Died on the way to the Hospital . No one would be Dead if his Wife had been faithful ! Apparently, this affair had been going on for some time . She should have Divorced him before she decided to be unfaithful ! Some people just loose it when they learn the person they Love is being unfaithful ! I truly feel sorry for their Child, and the Families who lost a loved one !

concerned,
Mr. Bowen told a relative........ is that the best you got?
I guess justifing mr. bowen not being able to keep a job and his cocaine use, along with insane jealousy was all to blame on someone else huh? I myself have talked to many people in the area and they all had the same view, opinion of this man whether they knew him or not. They all said he was a quiet suspicious person who never acted sociable or friendly. They both would sit quietly in reserve to have a meal, people they knew would be happy they ran into them but, he was always subdued by unmistakable problems of personality which he forced onto his wife. What a miserable life she lived with this person day in and day out. Is he so much to you or anyone else that he could not be asked for a divorce or it isn't suppose to apply to him? Did you see them having an affair? you and mr. bowen would be the only two. Did anyone besides his family ever rumor the affair? He was the sole creator of this reason to rid his selfish self of the mess, the ruin he had created of his life and his marriage which he could not fix due to hatefulness. You make him sound like a hero for making a couple of phone calls, and then almost killing himself, let me tell you, stop tring to defend a sick selfish monster who you should be accepting for what he was and be grateful he can't do this to anyone else. I'll keep praying for you.

It sounds to me like you have issues you need to confront; As for as praying for me , don't bother, I don't know which God you would be praying to, after listening to your Visceral Hatred Rant ! Apparently , Mr. Bowen had Psychological problems that either his Wife didn't recognize, or, just ignored . Staying in an abusive relationship is just asking for the worst to happen ! There's plenty of blame to go around , rather than putting the blame on one person ! The God i serve will Judge each person equally . He doesn't need your Self righteous, Sanctimonious , deluded opinion ! Unless you've walked a mile in his shoes, you're not qualified to explain his actions !

As far as anyone is concerned.....this is all over. he had a reason for doing what he did and that's that! why can't you people just leave it alone? now their daughter is going through a tough time and all this talk about an affair has her upset. it's to my knowledge that she did cheat on him which made her unfaithful. not one of you could say you would just brush it off if your husband or wife had an affair. you'd be furious and he just couldn't handle the pressure...he went into a panic before it was well thought over. so for the sake of others, just leave it alone!

Now their daughter is going to have to suffer through life without a mother or father and all ya'll can do is talk about how crazy he was. he had a motive and pursued it! that's all it was. I feel so sorry for the family but it all comes back to her having the affair!!!!

I think if you read my comments you will find that i was not criticizing Mr. Bowen or, placing blame ! I'm sorry you saw it that way ! Mr. Bowen's cousin was a good friend of mine for many years , I also knew his Father very well . They were all decent and outstanding Citizens !

In reply to you strangers who have the nerve to say these awful things about my mother: you need God. my mother was my best friend. she told me eveything. a few days before my stepfather took her life she told me that she was miserable and unhappy and wanted to leave ed. she said she didnt know what to do because she didnt want to hurt my 10 yr. old sister madison, the child they had together. i told her if she wasnt happy then she shouldn't stay. me and ed never got along even if i tried. my mother didnt deserve this.

i wish people wouldnt be so cruel. loosing my mother broke my heart. to read and hear things that people are saying about my mom, its ridiculous. she NEVER had an affair. she wouldnt even hurt a fly. im still in shock. and reading things like that makes me so angry. but i will always stick up for my mom, my best friend. i love you mama.

my stepfather, the jerk you are all sticking up for, is my sisters father, yes. but i am so filled with anger that you people have the nerve to say that she got what she deserved! she was the sweetest person and ed did not deserve her. he wasnt even worthy of her. ed has never been a good stepfather. he smoked a lot of weed and drank vodka and beer all the time. i knew my mom wanted to leave, but not with david. she wanted to be with her family and out of that small cult-like town. now she is with her mother in heaven. rest in peace mama. God only knows how much i miss you. i will see you in heaven when the time comes.

ed was not crazy or mentally unstable. i lived with them just about my whole life. he was never abusive in any way but words. kind of like some of you. i just want to put the real truth out for all of you to hear. i will still respect my sister by watching what i say around her about her father. she has asked me so many hard questions already. i just told her that they both loved her very much and i will always be here for her. because i will-just like my mom was with me.

Yea i understand that to but it probably would have been better if she would have been there.Then maybe she could have got something to stop him from doing that.Am sure she could have did something more than what she did.

What a terrible insinuation! Why are you wanting to put guilt on this young lady? Does this make you feel better? She has enough to handle as it is! Shame on you!

Am I understanding you folks correctly? EVEN IF she was having an affair, does this justify execution? Look at our world, if everyone having sex outside marriage were executed, there would be few left! NO, I am NOT advocating adultery, just wanted to point out the absurdity of some of your reasoning!
