Five Dead and Town Warned to Lock Its Doors
Police issued a warning today in a small central Illinois town that whoever slaughtered a family of five was on the loose and extremely dangerous.
"I think people do need to lock their doors and take precautions," Logan County Sheriff Steve Nichols said today at a news conference according to the Bloomington Pantagraph. "Until we find this person, we consider them armed and dangerous."

Found dead in the family massacre were Raymond and Ruth Gee, approximately 46 and 39 years old, and their three children ages 11 to 16. Their youngest, 3-year-old Tabitha, survived the attack in the family's Beason, Ill., home and was taken to a hospital.

Police have called the Gee family murders a "brutal homicide."

1. That poor little girl...
...I hope there are some family members left (grandparents, uncles/aunts) who can bring her into their home and surround her with comfort and love.

3. This is a small town! Population: 300...
Beason Postmaster Jodie Duncan, who knew the older children well, said no one in this tiny town of 300 knows what to think at this point.

I hope this fiend is caught...soon!

6. this is not a random act.
It will probably end up having something to do with an unpaid debt, lust gone awry, or a drug deal gone horribly bad :(

...reminds me too much of a movie I once saw (you know which one) :scared:



Of course, to be serious though, this ain't no fucking movie. This is real and a whole family has been murdered. My thoughts go out to the victims and for the security of that little town. I hope they catch the sick fucking bastard. :mad:
