    What a heartbreaking story. What would cause a 15year old to do this to this couple? RIP Boyd & Doris Haynes. I just don't know what else to say.

    A bit more on the alleged culprit, added to newsok.com's main article posted yesterday:
    On his MySpace page, Owen makes several references to smoking marijuana and says he once was arrested for smoking the drug. He also talks about breaking up with a girl, getting into fistfights with people and enrolling at U.S. Grant High School in October.

    He looks so angry. Why do our kids have to do these things, his life is over, the poor people he murdered, lives are over and their family is left picking up the pieces and are heartbroken

    RIP Boyd and Doris
    My opinion is MINE!

    Bail is denied for suspect in deadly Oklahoma City house fire
    ---
    Tristan Ryan Owen, 15, stood in orange jail clothes with his hands by his side in a video arraignment that lasted less than a minute. It was his first appearance before a judge.

    Oklahoma County Special Judge Russell Hall informed Owen that he was being held on murder and arson complaints. The judge told him bail is denied.

    Marijuana didn't make him do this, IMO...not unless it was laced with some crazy drug...
    Just my opinion, of course.

    This crime has upset me more than most crimes do. I am not sure why, except maybe because I grew up in south OKC, I am familiar with the area where this took place.

    And possibly because the descriptions of these well-liked, long-married people make them seem like my own parents, who would fit the same descriptions.

    But I think mainly because, they had every reason to expect to live out a few more happy years in each other's company, until this little psychopathic (look it up, firestarting is a symptom!) <self-modsnip> decided to do what he did.

    Be kind, for everyone is fighting a great battle.

    Police say Oklahoma City murder suspect said he made firebombs after watching movie ‘Jackass 3'
    ---
    “Tristan denied any wrongdoing at first but later recanted his statement and admitted to making the Molotov cocktails after he saw them being made on a movie called ‘Jackass 3.' Tristan advised he did light the Molotov cocktails and throw them but they busted and never caught fire,” police detective Ryan Porter wrote in a request to a judge for a search of the boy's cellphone.

    (The most well-known example of "Oklahoma youths gone mad claim movie made them do it" concerned the crimes of Sarah Edmonson and Ben Darras, who blamed their crime rampage on repeated viewings of the Oliver Stone film Natural Born Killers. Victims filed a lawsuit against the film and its director but the case was dismissed.)

    From June 2013:

    http://newsok.com/article/3850938

    Heartbroken family members reacted with disbelief Friday after a judge sentenced a teenager to six years in prison for setting an early morning house fire that killed a couple a few hours before they were to move into an assisted-living facility...

    Terry Haynes sought the maximum sentence for Tristan Owen, 17, who was convicted in February of two counts of first-degree manslaughter and one count of first-degree arson...

    With credit for time served, Owen could be released in less than four years.
