So typical of losers so they could spend the rest of their lives in jail on endless vacation.

Yet another family tragedy. I'm sure there will be plenty of conjecture posted here on the "probable" cause from "experts" in crime and social ills. But only those immediately affected will know the true cause. The rest of us can only hope our own lives aren't someday likewise ripped apart.

A lot of people have troubled relationships with their family. Why not move out or crash at friends place. Unprovoked killing of anybody, family included, is idiotic unless your life is in immediate danger.

@Gaijinjland A lot of people have troubled relationships with their family. Why not move out or crash at friends place. Unprovoked killing of anybody, family included, is idiotic unless your life is in immediate danger. Have you ever thought people like this guy may not have any friends at all. The guy was unemployed, that we have read but this also makes me think he had some other problems. Why send him to his friends house to crash he should be sent to crash out on a psychs couch!
