    Don't know what's going on as of late, several suicides over the past couple of years, including Junior Seau of the Chargers....As a lover of football, I hope that it is not ultimately linked to repeated head hits causing this, I'd hate to see the sport go....


    Sympathies to KC fans, and the family.

    Why is it every time one of these assholes decides to kill himself, he has to murder his wife/girlfriend/kids first? I have no sympathy for him - he was obviously a selfish, greedy bastard who took the life of an innocent person.

    I wish for sympathy towards the innocent, especially the family of the woman that was murdered. However, this man as an individual deserves no honor or sympathy for his actions.

    Wow, pretty cold guys...The man obviously had some mental issues, and not only do BOTH of the families deserve some sympathy, but also for the man himself that felt this was his only option....

    I have a hard time feeling sorry for someone that murdered another person and then killed themselves. I can sympathize with suicidal individuals, but murder deserves no sympathy.

    Actually that's not obvious. "Selfish, greedy bastard" might not come anywhere close to really describing what was going on his mind. I think that's just your emotional reaction to the heinous nature of what he ended up doing.

    I saw this story about a dozen times on ESPN before I learned that he is from the same town I live in.

    Weird stuff.

    You guys can argue semantics all day long but a man who kills his girlfriend and infant son just isn't that great of a guy.

    Not saying it does, but on the surface it looks like the actions of a severely depressed individual that was not under treatment that he needed to be obviously....If in the end he turns out to have been just another jack ass of a man, then fine, I'll agree with you...But on the surface I think there is more to it...

    I'm not claiming he was a great guy. Just saying it is not in fact "obvious" to any of us that "selfish, greedy" describes or explains why he did this. It's heinous, but we have no idea the real nature of this guy's ****ed-up-ness.
