Such a telling article
In Routier case, time doesn't heal the wounds
Rowlett: A decade later, officers reflect on killing of sons

Darlie Routier called 911 in June 1996, saying an intruder had attacked two sons.
Every so often, Brownie Sherrill will see a car creep down the street, its occupants' eyes fixed on a prominent two-story house at a bend on Eagle Drive.
By now, he's used to it. For a decade, he and his neighbors have put up with local people and others staring at the site of one of Rowlett's most brutal crimes.
About 2:30 a.m. June 6, 1996, Rowlett police received a 911 call from Darlie Routier saying someone had broken into her home and attacked her sons Damon, 5, and Devon, 6.
Police and paramedics arrived minutes later.

I hate how Darlie and supporters have attacked these investigators. I can't imagine what it was like having to look at that scene close-up and focus on all the details of the case.

Thank you so much Dasgal for posting the article. It was rather telling from LE's point of view.
