They always assume suicide when in doubt. Is there any evidence or more information to add to this article?

Not sure what's more scary, being chased with a hammer and knife by your son or your dad.. What could drive a man to do such a thing.. Now I need to watch something uplifting on youtube to get rid of these horrible images in my head.
