    PA - Tyron Hill, 11, dead, twin critical after stabbing, Penn Hills, 28 Aug 2007

    I really wonder what the story behind this one is. Why the heck would you want to stab an 11 year old, or two 11 year olds for that matter?? I wonder if the suspect, an 18-yr old relative, was up to no good and they walked in on him or something. Poor kids.

    That'd rip my heart out, to hear anyone saying that, much less my young grandson... I'm praying for him. Nothing will replace his twin though.

    He was arrested: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,294995,00.html

    PENN HILLS, Pa. — Police on Wednesday arrested an 18-year-old man charged with stabbing his half brothers, 11-year-old twins, killing one of them and leaving the other seriously injured.
    Troy Hill was arrested after he emerged from some woods in Penn Hills, the same Pittsburgh suburb where he is alleged to have stabbed the twins.

    Heartbreaking. My prayers for this family.
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    I read this a little bit ago and it breaks my heart. Those poor little boys. It wasn't bad enough that they were being stabbed to death. They knew it was their big brother killing them. They had to see each other suffer.

    My God! What is wrong with this world??? Prayers to their parents, grandparents and all who knew and loved them.

    This is so sad prayers to the family. When I was around 15 or 16 1973 or so my bestfriends brother chased his brother and my bf around with a steak knife he was nuts screaming because his parents were out of town and we wouldn't let him go somewhere. This is not new just hear about things a lot more due to internet.

    You're right on that. I saw a scrapbook on ebay the other day from the mid-late 1800s with clippings about various crimes. I read every one that they had in the photos. Really gruesome stuff happened then, too. Think I will go see if the auction ever ended.

    Wonder what the 18 yr old murderer was doing? What was he was afraid that his 11 yr old brothers would tattle?>Q!>!

    Let's hope and pray the surviving child tells everything.

    From above link:
    Troy Hill Sr. told reporters Saturday his son has been sick with paranoia for some time. He said his son told him he wanted to kill himself and also admitted to hearing voices. He claimed the television and his sister's dolls were talking to him.

    According to Nickell, all of those symptoms would and should be a sign to mental evaluators of a significant mental problem.

    "If somebody or a person were hearing voices and they what an evaluator thought was a credible threat to themselves, that certainly could be seen as grounds or cause for at least having the hearing to see if the judge wanted to commit the person," said Nickell.

    At last check, Troy Hill Jr. was in the infirmary within the Allegheny County Jail.

    A hearing on Thursday will determine if he is to be sent to Mayview State Hospital.
