Shayne Riggleman, killed five people in West Virginia before committing suicide.
Schizophrenia? Bipolar? Mom says son was not taking his medication and thinks she may have missed signs as he was singing particular songs before the murders.
Amazing this thread has drawn so few posts. This was a bloodbath.
Ya it's not being broadcast on the news either. A horrible crime that crossed city and county lines. Five innocent people murdered. May they rest in peace.
Sorry, but this guy doesn't get any sympathy from me. I'm not buyin' the mental illness condition one bit. It was a 'love triangle' and the majority of those MURDERED, were 'collateral damage.'
The fact is, he and an ex had a baby. The ex, started dating someone else, moved in with her new b/f's family and the bf and his INNOCENT family paid the price. Although his ex and I'm assuming brand new baby moved into the home of the NEW b/f and his parents, everyone else, including the new b/f, paid the price because this guy was jealous.
There's no question of motive, and the result was MULTIPLE murderS, including an unborn child.
I know this sounds harsh, but I'm glad he killed himself and saved the state the cost of housing, trying him, and then housing him for the rest of his life. Just wish he'd killed himself before he killed all those innocent people.
This scenario plays over and over and over again in our society. Just because he was messed up, doesn't mean he had to kill so many innocents, because he didn't like his own life.
The five killed Monday were Katrina Hudson, 22, who was pregnant; her brother, Kevin Hudson, 17; their mother and stepfather, Karin Richardson, 50, and Charles Richardson III, 49; and Robert Raber Jr., 30.
The Associated Press reported Wednesday that a friend of Karin Richardson's said Raber was the father of Katrina Hudson's child. The friend also said that an ex-girlfriend of Riggleman's, Brittany Harwood, had moved in with the Richardsons about a month ago, and had recently begun dating Kevin Hudson.

Many people suffer from Bi Polarism .
Most do the responsible thing and keep it under control with prescribed medication,even those that do struggle with it in a re occurring fashion never harm anyone else.
You have to have some serious pieces missing to begin with in order to act out in such an evil and pathalogically selfish manner.
At this link, is an interview with a local reporter that interviewed the supects ex-g/f and it 's veryyyy informative. It appears that although the national media hasn't been picking up on this horrific crime, it's a shocking and much talked-about local case.
FWIW, in the previous linked article, LE said they 'aren't clear of the motive,' or CLOSE to a quote, but they know very well why he did this.
He was a STALKER of his ex and it was jealousy, plain and simple. LE had also been contacted two weeks prior to this incident and had been advised by the ex-g/f, that Riggleman (shooter) had THREATENED the life of one of the victims.
IMHO, NOW you know why LE is keeping mum on this case. Right now into the process of connecting the dots, LE in CYA mode,.............which I don't think they can be blamed for the ultimate result, as there really was NOTHING they could do up to that point, as there was no PROBABLE cause, UNTL AFTER the murders!
