    CA - Four Holzer family members stabbed to death, Goleta, 11 Aug 2014

    Father Accused of Killing Sons, Parents in Mass Murder

    http://www.keyt.com/news/santa-barba...icide/27425420


    Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown told reporters the man arrested is 45-year-old Nicolas Holzer, who lived with his parents and his two sons at the residence. According to Brown, Holzer calmly called Sheriff's dispatchers on Monday night, claiming he had killed his family.

    Detectives say they found Holzer at the door of the home and arrested him. Investigators say he told them it was his "destiny" to commit the killings. Brown said Holzer had no criminal history.

    When deputies arrived, they found 10-year-old Vincent Holzer, 13-year-old Sebastian Holzer, 74-year-old Sheila Holzer, and 74-year-old William Holzer dead inside the house. A family pet Australian Shepherd dog was also fatally stabbed.

    This man was NUTS, obviously. But there didn't seem to be any red flags at all. He stabbed his entire family then calmly waited for LE to arrive.

    Santa Barbara County prosecutors announced Tuesday that a grand jury indicted 45-year-old Nicolas Holzer on felony charges that include special allegations. Prosecutors haven't decided whether to seek the death penalty.

    Holzer remains jailed without bail.
