"Immaterial" at this time. We don't want or need unsubstantiated claims at this time. Thanks for your concern.

How is it at all "immaterial" for the public to know about the circumstances of a murder that happened in their own neighborhood? The family can still be afforded privacy without keeping their neighbors in the dark. Privacy for victims and public knowledge are not mutually exclusive.

I see everything needs to be picked apart on Edhat like CSI...More than likely the comment came from a neighbor there were alot of neighbors out. Some were witnesses as there was alot of yelling and screaming going on as it had been reported as a 415pc Domestic...

Gifted - Actually, it's not, not at this time. One comment on a thread is not "the internet," it's one comment that should not have been made. It's entirely immaterial to EVERYONE other than the family at this point, who are hopefully not reading this. You don't need to know anything now. Whether the person knows or is speculating makes no difference at this time. Give it a rest.

Actually, it is important to verify how the person knows. False information and speculation fly around the internet far too freely. With that being said, I agree that this was a horrible tragedy and my heart and prayers go out to everyone affected.

Roger - I agree. Everyone should drop it. It's not important to ANYONE other than the family at this point.
