    I will never understand these crimes as long as I live. Sadly, kids murdering family members is a daily occurrence anymore. Sigh.

    The mother has been identified. Thankfully, it appears the 16 year old girl will survive, although it's hard to imagine how difficult losing your mom at the hands of your brother would be.

    Police arrived to find 52-year-old Pamela Wolosz dead and the boy's 16-year-old sister with multiple stab wounds, O'Meara said.

    Tragic. Unthinkable. This is my town. In 32 years I don't remember a child killing a parent. I found out about it on the WS news crawl a few minutes after missing local news the last couple of days. Thank you WS.

    The police chief speaks.

    “This is a real tragedy,” Chief Tighe O’Meara of the Ashland Police Department says, “and it’s going to affect a lot of people in a really profoundly negative way.”

    “To watch this unfold and see a 12-year-old taken into custody for murdering his mother,” Chief O’Meara says, “it’s been a rough day and it’s gonna be a rough patch for the community to work through.”

    This is especially tragic,” O’Meara adds.

    A search of online records shows Wolosz was a retired U.S. Air Force officer with a bachelor's degree in aeronautical engineering and master's in engineering management and is listed as a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists. She was listed as a volunteer with the Ashland Independent Film Festival this year. Her Facebook page says she studied at Purdue University and went to Tremper High School in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

    Article identifies the son as Ezekiel "Zeke" Holmes, an Ashland Middle School student. He pleaded not guilty today.

    Pamela's husband identifies the daughter who was stabbed by name and says that the other person in the home was Pamela's mother who lives with them. He was out of town at the time of the attack.

    Googling Pamela last night I ran across a YouTube account in her name. It was filled with gaming and other videos more in line with a 12 year old than a 52 year old woman. Many were violent and disturbing based on their titles. One in particular caught my attention and I watched part of it. It included a knife attack. I forwarded the account link and video link to Chief O'Meara, who replied that he would pass it along to detectives. I'm not linking them here because of their nature and because the account is easily found.

    As I told the chief, I know there is disagreement about the effect of violent video games on impressionable minds, but this information may or may not partly explain the unthinkable. I doubt or would hope that Pamela did not know about this account or how it was being used.

    According to this article, investigators will be talking to the friends of the boy and his sister. Police don't yet know what his state of mind was or what prompted the attacks.

    This is an array of stories within the past 24 hours, ranging from legal aspects and community reaction to how the local students and first responders are being helped.

    Community reaction and comment about family...they are considered "exemplary."

    Thank you for being so proactive Lilibet!

    I don't know what to say. This is shocking. I feel so sad for the whole family. What went wrong? When? Where? Why the rage? I hope they find answers and are able to heal in time.

    I am very familiar with this town, but I do not know not this family. My heart breaks for all, including (of course) the family, also the first responders and the small community who will likely struggle to make sense of all that occurred. IMO a tragedy all around.
