    TX - 6 Killed in Campsite Attack; William Hudson Charged, Anderson Co., Nov 2015

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/11/16...d-with-murder/


    Wasn't sure whether to post this in rampage killings because I don't know specifics. So far, names and ages of victims, or relationship to suspect, haven't been released. Bodies of a man and woman were found on Sunday and bodies of 4 men were found on Monday, on or next to property of suspect.

    Family members have confirmed the identities of the six people killed in Anderson County over the weekend. Carl Johnson, 77, and his daughter Hannah Johnson were discovered early Saturday morning. Carl Johnson's wife, Cynthia Johnson, was the sole survivor of the attack.

    Hannah Johnson's 6-year-old son Kade Johnson, her boyfriend Thomas Kamp, and Kamp's two oldest children were the bodies found in a pond outside of the arrested man, William Hudson's, house.

    All the victims were staying on private property owned by Kamp.

    "Campsite" made me think this happened at a campground next to private property. The first 2 victims were found in a trailer per the first article I posted. But, this article sounds like the 2 families (victims) were camping on private property. Is that Hudson's defense - that he felt threatened by these people, including children, who were squatting on his land? If he asked them to leave and they refused, why not call LE? IMO, too many people today think killing someone is the solution to a conflict.

    It sounds like a land dispute. The crazy thing is now that the guy is going to go to prison for the rest of his life he wont have to worry about his land anymore.

    These crazies don't think things through. Call LE and have them mediate land disputes.

    I am guessing these other people had moved next door onto the land owned by Kamp and the killer Hudson probably didnt want to recognize boundaries or words got heated and out of hand.

    It is sad because nobody wins in the end when shootings like this happen. Everyone loses.

    There also wasn’t a motive for the shocking murder spree. Taylor told reporters the victims didn’t know Hudson, who has allegedly been uncooperative with investigators and whose criminal history includes a recent assault.

    “We’ve handled him for assault within the last few weeks,” Taylor said. “He was violent, but it wasn’t of this nature.”

    One of the victims, who owns a small piece of property next to Hudson’s roughly 50 acres, “bought the land probably to camp,” Taylor said.

    I think you're right, Hatfield. The land they were camping on didn't even belong to Hudson. He probably claimed it as his own, though.

    Three were identified as Carl Johnson, Hannah Johnson and Thomas Kamp
    Two of Kamp's sons killed and Hannah's six-year-old son Kade also died


    What a hateful act !
    Looking at W. Hudson's mugshot , just something in his face.
    Like the fictional character, Lester Ballard, in Cormack McCarthy's "Child of God" novel ; he maybe thought they were on his land. but to just go and gun them down ?

    Whatever his state of mind, or lack thereof... it's hard to feel an ounce of pity for someone who can murder a 6 year-old , much less people who haven't been a threat to you !
    Imo.

    Rest in peace to the victims.

    BBM Yes, a Lester Ballard type. Child of God certainly was chilling.

    I live approximately 25 miles from Palestine. I think I will follow this case.

    The perpetrator befriended the victims, even helping them get their truck out of the mud, before returning later and murdering them.

    So, the perp can't exactly say he suddenly 'snapped' , or had a mental blackout, can he ?
    Appears to be somewhat premeditated.
    I'd imagine this will be a death penalty case -- if ever there was just cause.
