Mutrie's mom says she is tired of all this and wants it to go away ?? Wait-a-minute, this was THE most violent event in history for our seacoast area and we will not forget it ever in our lifetime. There will be more and more articles about how did this happen and why did no-one do something to fix his screwed up mind. Chief Maloney knew how dangerous he was and couldn't leave until he was in custody. God Bless Mike Maloney, thanks is not enough.

When your a victim of abuse you are controlled by the abuser & you end up doing things you wouldn't normally do. Believe me!!! She bought it back in Jan. on the 16th at a gun show you know she was with him & he couldn't buy it who knows what he told her he was going to do with it. I don't know either one of them personally so I cannot & won't judge what did or did not take place. We do all know he killed her so that alone tells us something!!!

God is the only appropriate judge here. Families on both sides are suffering and their pain is only increased by the constant speculation on the motives of those involved. Only God truly knows what was in their hearts.

There are so many ways to look at this tragedy. However you are so right. We can look as at it as, former abused women and see things that stand out. Or as people who knew them or just people with opinions. There is only one who knows the truth and he will be the final judge.
