OK - Denise Anderson, 6, shot to death by dad, Guthrie, 1 Feb 2009
He had a rifle with a scope!
Who the he!! puts a rifle to their kid's head -- after she went to another room because daddy was 'playing too rough'??!!??
Denise went to her father’s house for an overnight visit Saturday, according to the arrest affidavit. As the two were playing on Sunday, Denise became upset because her father was playing too rough, so she left her father’s bedroom and went to play in the living area, Peoples told investigators.
Peoples then went into his mother-in-law’s bedroom closet and retrieved a .22-caliber rifle with a scope — the same gun that according to the affidavit, he had "messed with” the day before and left a loaded round in the chamber.
"Matthew went to the hallway between the bedrooms and pointed the gun at Denise while she sat on the floor and played with her toy car,” the document stated. "Matthew pulled the trigger on the rifle and shot Denise in the head.”
rest of the story here:
RIP, little Denise. And prayers for your family.

How many parents point a gun at their child's heads and pull the trigger?? Oh I was just playing with her......I just don't know what to think anymore."Truth is,everybody is going to hurt you; You just gotta find the one's worth suffering for.~Bob Marley~

From the link that Texas Mist posted:
"After the hearing, a woman who identified herself on the telephone as Peoples’ grandmother said she doesn’t think her grandson would have intentionally shot his daughter.
"Today’s news is no better than yesterday’s,” she said. "I still think it was an accident"
"Peoples wrapped her in a pink blanket, loaded her in his sport utility vehicle, drove to Spencer and left her body in the woods next to the high school track, the affidavit said"
I understand that just because he wrapped her in a blanket and then dumped her body in the woods instead of calling 911 doesn't mean he intentionally killed her. But it sure doesn't look logical if it was an accident."Three things in human life are important: The first is to be kind; the second is to be kind; and the third is to be kind." ~ Henry James

Has there been a statement from the bio mom? I wonder what she thinks?
There has to be more to the story here.
Here we go again if it was an accident why didn't he dial 911??

Why in the heck did he get the gun in the first place?! Raising the gun, aiming and shooting is not accidental.

Here's a picture of little Denise. She was such a cutie!

If you point a gun at someone and pull the trigger, it's not an accident. Otherwise, everybody could say that. How ridiculous of his family to go along with that idea. I bet he didn't want her telling anybody about the "rough" games in the bedroom.

Yes, SteadFast, the perp is a real winner.
Have you read the affadavit? Denise's mom called the cops because she didn't know where her little girl was. Cops ask the perp what he did with her & he claims he dropped her off with her mom's friend. LE tells him the friend never had the girl & they know he's lying.
Thennnnn he tells LE that he just dropped her off @ an apartment complex.
And I also read - what may be a rumor (because I can't find good source to substantiate it) on another forum that after perp dumped the body, he went out with his g/f like nothing happened.
good grief, dude. Seems we've seen a similar story plastered all over the news for months! good luck with that 'accident' tale!!
