    Little update on the video.

    Police identified one of the women as 54-year-old Donna Breau of Lynn. Breau’s daughter says the other woman was Donna’s mother, Melba Trahant. The car is missing and they are looking for a family member.

    At the end of the video one neighbor was saying with emotion how she was always trying to help her kids ....so it maybe a one of her kids who did it.

    ETA: I just checked and the grandmother was 83 years old ....and ill. It also looks like Donna had a twin brother.

    From Paul's link above:
    A Lynn man apprehended Tuesday night as he tried to cross the Canadian border allegedly admitted to Canadian customs authorities that he had slit the throats of his mother and grandmother and then dumped their bodies at a Saugus elementary school earlier in the day.

    Peter Bourgeois, who lives on the third floor of the Sheridan Street home, said today he was shocked to learn that Wright is accused of murdering the two women.

    “It’s unbelievable,” Bourgeois said. “I knew he had problems, anger issues, but I never thought he would do something like this.”

    Bourgeois recalled an incident two years ago when Wright wanted to learn how to play guitar. His mother bought him a knockoff of an electric Fender guitar. But one night, when his grandmother complained of him playing it too late “he went outside and smashed it. He had a temper tantrum,’’ Bourgeois said
    What a scary looking dude. I wonder what set him off? He looks drugged.

    And why take them to a school? Why not just leave them in their apt?

    Wright has a lengthy court record, with six cases on his record in Lowell District Court — from assault to shoplifting and destruction of property. The assault case was for becoming “irate” after his dad asked him to help with the dishes in 2007, records state.

    “What my son did was evil,” said the dad, also named Joseph Wright.

    Wow. Major anger issues. Wonder if they will say tomorrow in court what the motive was? His sister and her husband just moved out a few weeks ago.

    Reminds me of Josh Powell threatening his mother when asked to do the dishes as a teen.

    RIP Melba and Donna.

    From June 2014:

    http://www.itemlive.com/news/lynn-ma...a4bcf887a.html

    A city man was sentenced Monday to two consecutive life terms in prison for murdering his mother and grandmother in 2012...

    Joseph Wright III, 25, was found guilty of two counts of first-degree murder with extreme atrocity or cruelty in the April 30, 2012 deaths of Donna Breau, 54, and Melba Trahant, 83...

    Wright had admitted to killing both women at the family’s home at 94 Sheridan St. in Lynn. The defendant testified Friday that he first killed Breau by slashing her throat with a kitchen knife then went downstairs and killed his grandmother the same way, afraid she noticed his blood-covered clothing and was calling police.
