Just out of curiosity, why is storm damage to their house relevant to the story of their murder?
Matt September 14, 2012 at 06:20 PM
In all likelihood, probably not relevant at all. I bet the reporter needed a minimum number of words to get this to press.

Apparently attempted suicide, but failed, unfortunately (if guilty).

Again I write how truly, deeply saddened I am of the brutal murder of this elderly couple. I can't even imagine the torture they went through especially knowing it was there grandson (allegedly).

the word bewegan http://www.outletcoachstoday.com meant "to cover, envelop", http://www.coachoutletod.com rather than "to move". http://www.coachs-outletcar.com Preference of one synonym http://www.coachoutletdp.com over another also causes http://www.coachoutletwo.com differentiation in lexis, even http://www.coachfactoryoutletsp.com where both words are Germanic, as http://www.coachfactoryoutletli.net in English care vs. German Sorge. http://www.coachfactoryoutletce.org Both words descend http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net from Proto-Germanic *karō and *surgō respectively, http://www.coachoutletonlinesc.com/ but *karō has become the dominant http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com word in English http://www.louisvuittonoutletct.com for "care" while in German, Dutch, http://www.louisvuittonoutletti.org and Scandinavian http://www.coachoutletrf.com languages, the http://www.coachfactoryonlinebp.com *surgō root prevailed. *Surgō still survives in http://www.coachoutletuser.net English, however, as sorrow.
