This is an awful crime. I found an article that states he has suffered from major depression in the past, and received psychotherapy and medication for it. I suspect this will turn out to be a case of dad wanting to kill family then himself.

In Fayetteville the other week a well respected member of the community, a church going man, a man with money, kills his two kids, his wife and self.

Then there is the family, something like 5 sons and a father, all arrested for sexually abusing other family members, they are digging for bodies on the property.

It really is the end of the world as we know it.

It's hard for anyone to put themselves in the place of a father who would abuse or kill his own children. It runs counter to every natural human instinct. That means that- given the recent rash of such crimes- their is some broad ranging outside factor at work that is feeding this insanity. Financial stress? Social unrest? Cultural influences? All these... and more? A common general element has to exist. And it has to be a powerful one that can overcome a father's love and turn him into a raging animal. Such parents cannot be excused, as a stipulation of adulthood is personal responsibility. They must pay and pay in full. But an understanding of what's driving such crimes needs to be pinned down.
