    That was not a suicide if he also killed another person. He should just killed himself. A phucking SOB

    I feel so bad for the daughter that had to walk in and find her mom and dad like that. Whoever is at fault here sure (more than likely the male) wasn’t thinking right. How could anyone do that and leave your children without parents. Sounds like the police man down in Gilroy who did the exact same thing a few months ago.
