I'm in shock

post #1 of 27

I received a phone call from an old business aquaintance Sunday afternoon who told be that a current business aquaintance of mine was murdered on Saturday. I just cannot believe this!!. The local press has not released the names or many details but we have received confirmation from her place of employment. Her parents were also murdered with her. It supposedly was her husband that did this.
This kind sweet lady I have known professionally for many many years and it is very difficult for everyone in my office to accept this. When there is more information I will include a link.

Thanks your listening.

From speaking with one of her co-workers today everyone of them was afraid for her life. He had a restraining order but what good is that. She also said that she had been having problems with her spouse for quite some time. She had 2 young sons 9 and 11.

Sad. sad. Sad.

Where were her children? Poor little ones

Yes, unfortunately, a restraining order is only as good as the paper its written on.
It will only work with someone afraid of consequences and the law, not homicidal maniacs.

My heart goes out to this family...

The children were being care for by the husband's best friend and his girlfriend. Her co-worker told me he tried to strangle her once before and that is when she left him.
This is on the wire service

MOUNTAIN, Wis. (AP) A 41-year-old man has been arrested in the fatal shootings of his estranged wife and her parents in a camper in this northeastern Wisconsin community of about 900 people, authorities said.

The 37-year-old woman and her parents, a 63-year-old man and 60-year-old woman from Green Bay, were killed late Saturday in the camper on property east of Mountain that the family has owned for many years, Oconto County Sheriff Michael Jansen said.

Deputies went to the scene along County Trunk W about 45 miles northwest of Green Bay after getting a 911 call about some shots fired from one of the victims, Jansen said.

``There had been shots fired and were being fired while the 911 call was being placed,'' he said. ``They knew there was a problem when they called. There was a confrontation, but what that was about is speculation.''

The sheriff said he did not know if there was a shootout, but ``it appears there might have been two weapons fired that evening,'' he said. He said police were still searching for one weapons, but have recovered one gun, which was from the victims' camper.

``I believe it was the murder weapon,'' Jansen said.

The 41-year-old Green Bay man who was the younger victim's estranged husband was arrested within hours a short distance away on a dead end road after authorities confronted him outside his vehicle, Jansen said.

The sheriff declined to comment on a motive, but said divorce proceedings had been started between the 37-year-old victim and the 41-year-old man in custody.

The victims apparently tried to fight back, Jansen said.

Jansen said the district attorney could file a criminal complaint as early as Friday afternoon, and the suspect would then appear in court for a bail hearing. He declined to say whether the suspect was cooperating with investigators.

Oconto County coroner Laurie Parisey said the bodies of the victims were taken to St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay, and autopsies were planned Monday. The sheriff declined to release the victims' names early Monday.

Gene Wendt, who lives across the street from the house, said he was at home during the slayings but did not hear anything.

``I was upstairs sleeping with the fan on,'' he said, adding: ``They were nice people. They come up on the weekends.''

Don Smith, who lives next to the property where the slayings took place, said he heard another neighbor's dog barking a lot Saturday night.

``That's unusual. But maybe the dog sensed something,'' he said.

All for now on this.

Gail, gosh I can understand why you are in shock. It's not a very nice thing to happen... please take care.

I was just reading here in the London press about two women and a man who were murdered at the weekend in North West London - all 3 were shot in the head, and one of the womens 9 month old son was left unharmed, wandering about the place with three dead people by him...

Further details were released last night (www/greenbaypressgazette.com). The B*ST*RD is being held on lieu of two million $$$ bond. I called the funeral home and then the florist and it was very difficult for me to order flowers for this. Many of us are attending the visitation on Thursday nite. It will be Amy and her parents and I think this will also be a sad times for all of us too.

I just now saw this thread........How horrible!! I can't even think of the words to say to express how sorry I am to hear of this awful tragedy. I just don't understand what could make anyone resort to such violence as a solution to any problem.
post #21 of 27
Unfortunately, this tragedy is a prime example of the dynamics of domestic violence. With the worst abuse cases, violence becomes more fatal once the abuse survivor leaves the batterer. The batterer feels that their power and control over their partner is fading away and they will stop at nothing to keep that power and control, even if it means murder.
This is such a tragic, tragic case, though not isolated in the least .

Oh Gail I am so sorry. My heart goes out to the family and to you.

Gail, my thoughts and prayers are with you and their family. That is so horrible and very, very sad.

We had a similar situation happen here at work several years ago. My boss was murdered by her husband when she tried to leave him. Same thing, she had a restraining order and all, did no good. So sad...especially for the children involved.

Such evil people in this world.

How hard that must be to believe.

Yeah, a little girl at my temple I really care about...her mom passed away from cancer. Its so hard to believe that she's dead...that I'll never see her again in this life.

I'm so sorry. How scary.
