    IN - Matthew & Lisa Clippinger, both 43, shot to death, Mishawaka, 2 June 2012

    A convicted murderer freed from prison two years ago gunned down his brother during an argument outside his brother's northwest Indiana home early Saturday, then chased his sister-in-law inside and killed her while her terrified children listened, authorities said.

    Steven Clippenger, 41, of South Bend, apparently killed Matthew and Lisa Clippenger after he became angry when Matthew confiscated his handgun hours earlier at the home, James Taylor, a St. Joseph County Metro Homicide investigator, said in an affidavit.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Steven Clippenger was paroled in 2010 after serving 20 years in prison for murder, so when he showed up Friday night at his brother's house with a revolver, Matthew Clippenger confiscated it, angering the ex-con, who returned later with the other gun, Taylor said.

    Why would he need to come to his brothers home with a gun anyway.

    Those poor children.
    Say what you mean, mean what you say, but don't say it mean.
    We are all just trying to make sense of an unimaginable crime.

    The first murder details are that the victim was an older family friend and the then 18 yr old killer wanted to sell him a sawed-off shotgun. The family friend takes the gun away, takes the shells out and tells him he is too young to have a gun. The killer then gets the gun back puts shells in it and there is a fight over the gun and he kills the family friend. He served 20 yrs in prison, gets out finds a girl friend and has a baby. He attends a technical school where he was 2 weeks from graduation when this happened. He went over to his brother's home, (who also had testified against him in his first trial) where his brother notices the killer has a gun. The brother tells him that he is not allowed to have a gun since he is a convicted felon and takes the gun away. The killer leaves angry but comes back at midnight that same night with another gun where he shoots down his brother. He then chases his sister-in-law through the home and kills her too in front of her 2 children. Then he flees the scene in a car driven by his girlfriend. He is later caught with many more weapons. The mother of the 2 men says, oh "it was an accident" that her one so killed the other. Ya right.

    He shouldn't have gotten out of jail at all.
