    Police Respond to Double Murder

    RINEYVILLE, Ky. - Police found three children inside a Hardin County home with two dead adults.

    Officials discovered the bodies after one of the children called police.

    Investigators said they were going to treat the deaths as a double-murder.

    Officials believe the women were shot on Monday, even though they were called on Tuesday.

    Police said after hearing gunfire, the children became too scared to call for help until Tuesday.

    Those poor children. Can you imagine being 9 yrs. old and too terrified to make a phone call. The 9 yr. old probably knows who did this. This just makes me ill.

    Wow I used to live right by Rineyville been there a million times. I am really shocked something like this would happen there. It's just a small country quiet Kentucky town. A couple years ago there was a gay man in Rineyville who was beaten to death and stuck in a suitcase where he was found by police. (hate crime)

    Troopers said there was no sign of domestic violence or forced entry at the killing scene.

    Court documents obtained by a Louisville television station show Burke died shortly before finalizing a rocky divorce. Her hearing was set for Friday morning.

    Police have not named Brent Burke as a suspect. They said they are questioning him and that he has cooperated with the investigation so far.Investigators said Burke's first ex-husband, a soldier based in Ft. Lewis, Wash. has been cleared of suspicion in the killings.

    Victim Was Seeking Divorce

    Tracy Burke was living with her three children and her ex-mother-in-law, Karen Comer, in a home in Rineyville.

    Burke and Comer were shot to death Monday - four days before Burke and her husband Brent's divorce case was scheduled for a hearing.

    State police say they're following some good leads, which include talking with Brent Burke.


    and

    Karen Comer is the mother of Burke's first husband.

    He has been ruled out as a suspect.

    Here we have a case where the mother leaves an abusive situation, tries to protect herself and the 3 children from the abuse, moves in with her ex-inlaws and still ends up dead. From what info we have, it looks like she did everything that we here at WS would have told her to do. Those poor babies.

    Karen Comer is the mother of Tracey's first husband, who doesn't appear to be a suspect.

    Web page of murder victim's ex found with angry messages
    Sep 13, 2007 08:00 PM EDT
    Tracy Burke had requested a restraining order against her then husband, Brent Burke, saying he had an anger control problem. Further into the court documents, Tracy states while Brent was deployed in Egypt, he was sent home with of an alleged mental issue after threatening to kill a lieutenant.
    Investigators say, Brent is not a suspect, and he that he is cooperating.
    "He's very open and very cooperative right now. About everything," said Trp. Pavey.
    After the divorce decree was signed, Brent was ordered to pay $750 a month in child support immediately. And in 90 days would have to pay $1,000 to Tracy to recoup some of their debt. That payment would have been due this October. We were able to find Brent Burke's MySpace page. On it a title that states, "I hate money hungry women."
    Trp. Pavey says, "We knew about the MySpace page, they looked at it. Somebody else had told them (detectives) about it. They are looking at everything."
    Pavey goes on to say," We've got a couple of detectives at Fort Campbell right now. Fort Campbell authorities and Mr. Burke are cooperating fully with us." (more at link)
