Prayers to the family. How many children did the couple have? What age are they?

Does anyone know if any kind of fund is being set up to possibly help pay for final expenses?

This is so sad. We hear so much of domestic violence and see it on TV shows, but it is very sobering when it happens in your own community.

This is such a sad situation has mentioned.

No one may ever know the reason it escalated to this point. It's my understanding the Crytal's mom had already removed the kids from the home shortly before which is a good thing.

Crystal Oakford has been on the jail docket as recent as November for battery-domestic violence. So it's possible it's been an on going thing with this family.

But regardless if it's a new thing or an on going one. It's still so sad for this family & the kids involved. And right here at the holiday's always seems to make it a little worse.

She was on the docket? Was she abusing him? Can the grandmother keep the kids so they have some stability?

Yes, she was on jail docket. It doesn't say who the battery-domestic violence was against just that she was arrested for it in November.

I wonder if that is why the children were not in the house at the time of the shooting, I was thinking they were spending the night with the grandparents but it might have been a domestic issue. Either way I feel so bad for the kids.

MR. A hole this is not a class room.
you need to be more concern with idiots getting there hands on guns then spelling.
I do have guns,and know how to use them.
unlike you mr, A hole, you probably shoot your eyes out with your BB gun when you were 10,
If there was problems in that house before, there guns should had been taken away PERIOD.

If the woman had been arrested for domestice Viola=ence just a while ago, she must had been on probation.
If she was on probation, then there should had been no no no no no no no no guns in the house.
Because people on probation are not allowed to be in a house with guns.

Alot should have been done! All the gun's in the house was taken out of the house. But he hid two gun's. And as I read all this that has been written here about all this hurts me and my family. For as she was my sister and my best friend. My life is not the same. Her kids will not be the same. And if they try to look up there mom's name they will see all that has been wrote down. So if you would think about what you write before you say the wrong things. Thank you to all! And to all her friends! She love you all!!!!

AGAIN I rest my case. I do fell sorry for your sister and husband as well as the kids.
If all the guns were taken away as they should had been maybe this would had not happen
there should had been a order of protection served on her to stay away from her husband and kids. If it was a man there sure would had been

Crystal was a vibrant girl & only asked to be a better Mother than the one she had so her first & most concern was her children ages 7 and 3. She will b missed. Can send any note r monies to help with expenses to her address. Pray that her brother her friend will b able to take the kids. Thanks.
