    NJ - Juan Cuevas, 36, Washington Township, 20 Jan 2006

    Today in my own neighborhood, 4 masked men tied up 3 children and beat their father to death in front of them.

    Things like this do not happen here!!!

    Found it

    CBS 3) WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP Police are searching for four suspects who violently beat a man to death inside his Gloucester County home Friday.

    Officials said four masked suspects arrived at the Washington Township home of 36-year-old Juan Cuevas just after 1 p.m. The suspects allegedly confronted Cuevas' 17-year-old son in the driveway of the home. They bound his hands and forced him into the home, police said.

    Hours later, Cuevas' 19-year-old daughter and 14-year-old son, were subdued by the suspects as they came home from school, police said.

    As they were in the home, police said the suspects were demanding the siblings tell them where Cuevas kept his money.

    Authorities believe Cuevas arrived home just after 5 p.m. and was taken upstairs by the assailants. Police said the four suspects beat him to death with a blunt object before fleeing the home around 6 p.m.

    After the suspects fled, the three teens contacted police. Arriving officers discovered the Cuevas' body in an upstairs bedroom and pronounced him dead at the scene.

    Police are still investigating the brutal crime. Currently, no arrests have been made.

    Also from the article posted by Linda7NJ:

    Cuevas’ wife was not home at the time of the incident.

    Investigators believe Cuevas was targeted by the suspects because they knew he owned an auto parts store in Philadelphia.

    “We don’t believe that for a minute that this was random,” said Chief Charles Billingham of the Washington Township Police.


    Take care Linda, and try to relax, if you can. I know I would be upset too if something like this happened in my area.

    This certainly looks like it was a hostage situation to me. 4 hours waiting for the man to get home, and then beat him to death? In front of his children? How horrible!! Those poor kids!

    Linda....stay safe. Thank God for Doberman's, huh?
