    TX - Penny, 37, Matthew, 13, & Tyler Caffey, 8, shot to death, 1 March 2008

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080302/...s/texas_deaths

    The article states it was 2 boys and 2 girls. The family's teen daughter is not among the victims. I wonder if she is one of the two girls.

    Those victims have been identified as Penny Caffey, 39, and her two sons, an eight-year-old and 13-year-old. The father, Terry Caffey, was shot, but made it out of the burning house alive. Bleeding, he crawled to a neighbor's home for help.

    The below quote is from Steve's link. I'd say this is a pretty good hint about the daughter because if the daughter had been killed, we'd know about it. If she was safe, that would be shouted from the roof tops. Many girls that age want to hang out with their female friends and their boyfriend. Many don't give a hoot about doing church things.
    Investigators tells us there were five members of the Caffey family, including a 16-year-old daughter. They say she is alive, and was not shot, but they will not tell us where she is and if she was, in any way, involved.

    The daughter is not one of the four. Curious as to why she was spared though. Was she the target?

    A woman and her two young sons are dead. Their father is in the hospital after a shooting and fire at a rural Texas home. Police said one teenage daughter survived the incident. Four other teens have been taken into custody.

    I agree that the teenage daughter may have been the target, and perhaps she wasn't home when this happened. It sounds like the police may have her in protective custody at this time. It sounds like the family was very involved in their church and religious so, although I know it could still happen, it doesn't sound like the daughter would be involved in something heinous like this.

    Just horrible.

    What happened was the teenage daughter was going out with the older guy and her parents tried to split them up, so they killed the parents. I am thinking the daughter is involved in some way.

    this must be an older article. I heard this morning that it was three teens and one adult. The adult was dating the teenaged daughter.

    Johnson and other neighbors said they believe the incident began with a dispute about a teenage relationship. The Caffey's 16-year-old daughter was dating and older boy and her parents forbid her from seeing him.

    ...

    Three high school students were arrested and booked into the Rains County jail. Traylor said 20-year-old Charles Allen of Emory, 18-year-old Charlie James Wilkinson of Emory and 18-year-old Bobbi Johnson of Point will be charged each with three counts of capital murder.

    The family's teenage daughter was not injured. She is being detained at the Greenville juvenile center.

    "Four suspects, including the Caffeys' juvenile daughter, remained in custody Sunday. Charlie James Wilkinson, 19; Charles Allen Wade, 20; and Bobbi Gale Johnson, 18, all of Emory, are all charged with three counts each of capital murder, according to the sheriff's department statement. All remained in Rains County Jail with bonds set at $1.5 million each."

    "Mrs. Caffey, 37, was killed along with her two sons, Tyler Caffey, 8, and Mathew Caffey 13, according to the statement. All had been shot and stabbed multiple times. Terry Caffey was in critical but stable condition Sunday in East Texas Medical Center in Tyler, where he was being treated for a gunshot wound to the head."
