Actually I am at work doing things, multi tasking. I am not being a total **** whatever that is. I am not making anything hard for the family YOU are the one posting names and maiden names that where not released by the media. Maybe you should get on the phone instead of the internet.

A friend of the family was telling me that they are going to tell the kids that the mom and dad were killed in a car wreck.. what a mess. The truth would be better but the kids are so young!

If you know someone of the family, would it be possible for you to find out what Melissa's maiden name is?

maybe this person requesting information is a lost family member trying to figure out if this is thier family, have a heart and put yourself in thier shoes, what if you thought this could be your family you haven't seen in years...

First of all I can't do that. Nothing is more important than family in my life. Maybe the family doesnt want her maiden name posted all over the internet. Considering they where never legally married maybe she is still using her maiden name and given they spelled her name a little unusual and the family member doesn't know this maybe they aren't family.

to anyone who feels the need to berate spc dave cascante, he is a UNITED STATES SOLDIER fresh back from Iraq. whatever ricks family may think, dave was under the impression that he was with someone completely single. i can understand your pain and anger, but please dont dare glorify rick. He killed the mother of his children and himself on christmas eve.that doesnt qualify him for dad of the year award!HE TOOK A COWARDLY WAY OUT AND ATTEMPTED TO KILL MY BATTLE BUDDY!!! the real shame in his suicide is that daves fellow soldiers were denied the chance to deal with this terrorist ourselves!!! i will pray for the families involved and epecially the kids. but dont go looking for sympathy from any of the soldiers who fight for your rights.our sympathy and concern lies with the decorated soldier who was injured by a lunatic for loving the wrong woman!!!

No matter what happened it is now over. You don't have the right to pass judgement on someone you never knew. I'm sorry he was shot, however, he survived. Think about the families that are effected through the lost of the two loved ones - you do know that they left children behind. I'm still in shock and disbelief. I knew both of them and this is not anything that any of us expected to happen. They were always a happy couple enjoying life to the fullest. I hope the children will remember their parents for the people that they were and not from what happened. This is a day that they will never forget (I wished that they could forget). This all seems like a bad dream.

You don't know much do you. Mears is her previous husbands last name. Her name had been returned back to DesChamp recently.

Shannon,
people are going to say insensitive things about your brother. His wife cheated on him in his house, he snapped. It is not ok. It is not ok to kill the mother of his children. I am sure your brother was the kindest person until his heart was broken, however what he did kinda takes away from the good person you knew him to be. I am sorry for your loss...but I have much more sympathy for the children, her family and to the soldier who I am sure had no idea what was in store for him.
I knew both of them and Ricky is one of the nicest people that I have ever met. Malissa and Ricky were always full of life. My family will miss both of them. This is not something Ricky would have normally done and something (the new guy) made him snap and do the unthinkable. I don't beleive that this was his intentions. God Bless both families and their children

I did know this. I have a friend that lives close to her parents. I just thought it was rude to post her families name on the internet.

How did the new guy make him do it? By dating a woman he met on the internet and said she was single? I don't know all of the situation and don't claim to but you CAN"T say the new guy made him do anything as he was also an innocent victim that was shot by a jealous ex!!

Obviously you were decieved. He is a killer and she was dishonest. What a shame that thier children will live with this the rest of thier lives. GOD BLESS THEM, and the soldier that survived. He was just as innocent.

It 's concerning to me that on most of the sites here, especially the ones that deal with shootings, murder/suicide, home invasions, robberies, ect...ect...several people "know" or are "related to" the perps or vics. Thier opinion is just as important as mine but does everyone have friends or family that are involved in these kind of acts?

How do we know this long lost loved one isn't a crazy psycho stalker?
