Does anyone know yet if this man knew the woman and children before hand? Or was this a random act?

This man is SICK. He needs alot more than the electric chair.. He needs to be killed just like he killed them and suffer his death, like he has made everyone suffer from his act. He has ruined the lives of alot of young children and has taken their friends from them. He should not get out easy!!!!!!!!!! Those poor Children. GOD PLEASE WRAP YOUR ARMS AROUND THAT MOTHER AND THEIR FATHERS.

The newspaper said he held a gun on the mother and raped her, telling her it would be her daughter or her if she didnt go along. Then when the kids came home from school he tied them up.
The oldest girl died from a slit throat and they said the other two died of multiple stab wounds. He then set the house on fire. The neighbors saw the fire and called for help. They found the mother outside where she had crawled to try to get help. Someone went in the house and was able to get one of the girls bodies out. The other two remained in the house because they couldnt go back in to get the bodies because of the fire.
I can't even imagine being the mother. Losing one child is hard enough and she has lost all three. Her life will never be the same because of this pyscho. He's definitely made me see the death penalty is necessary in some cases.

He had lived in her neighborhood previously, but she didn't know him. She told the police he had stopped at her house sometime in the previous week or two and asked for directions to somewhere (in his directtv truck).
They found him because one of the girls friends had stopped by while his truck was parked in the driveway and he remembered "hey" was part of the license plate. Sad, but the boy was probably lucky that he couldn't get anyone to the door or he would have been murdered also.

This man is an absolute monster. God be with this mother through this very difficult time. I couldn;t imagine and my heart goes out to her and her family. Just curious, where is the father of the children? Is he still around?

They had the funeral for the three at the high school to have enough room. She was released from the hospital and a statement was read and passed out to the attendees according to the newspaper. I almost cried when I read it...I can't remember word for word and don't have the paper (i saw it at work).
Anyway, she said she wouldn't allow him to fill her with hate and bitterness. If she were to do this, he would win and have taken all that she has left. She believes her children would not want her to. She said she has no idea why she was spared but feels there must be a purpose and she will try to find that purpose. And that he will pay dearly when he stands before God.
She is alot stronger than me because I don't think I could find that kind of strength.
As far as the father, they had different fathers and I believe they lived out of town and came there when they got the calls.
The killer is being held without bond and I believe there is enough evidence that he will get the max.

We had the children funeral and burial today in Mason, Ohio. She's holding up better then anyone could. After all that she's been through. The funeral was very beautiful.There wasn't a dry eye in the church. It sadden our family to think how someone could do as he did to those children. But as Kristi letter says "She cannot or will not allow him to have anymore control over her life".What her letter said was a woman that I am very proud to call my family. She has survive all this through the love of her children. And she will, as we her family will see jusice for what he has done. But his biggest punishment will be before God. We also like to Thanks everyone in Ky for being so kind to them all before, and during this terrible time.
May God Bless you all

I have a good friend that is a relative of the mom (Kristi), this has affected me in so many ways. I cried several times and get choked up just thinking about this. Why..how are people this sick! He is never going to have to deal with what this woman and her children, there is no justice for him! If Kristi were in front of me I would just tell her how sorry I am and hug her. I wish I could do something..I feel helpless. My doors are always locked now and and my children and family have strict instructions to never ever open the door...Pretty bad it has to come to that and you have to explain to your children the they could be killed in their own homes where they should feel safe. I feel sorry for his family...My questions is this...He has children, how do you do that to someone elses children when you have your own? I hope he goes to jail and some smart man rapes, degrades and tortures the hell out of him very slowly.... Kristi, my heart goes out to you and I think of you everyday!!! God bless you!!! A friend of a friend here in KY!!!

I feel so sorry for his family as well. His wife and children seem to be absolutely the best. For them I hope he isn't the man. I hope they are sure they have the RIGHT person.

i am a relative of the neighbor, so i have heard much of this firsthand, and my heart just breaks for this family that one man devastated. it has affected so many more than just that family, and my prayers go out to all.

Shonda, based on all i've been told, i do believe they have the right man. my prayers go out to his family as well, i'm sure they are suffering greatly.

How on earth can anyone do such horrific acts to anyone, let alone children.... my heart breaks.
