    An Illinois father found the bodies of his wife and two young children Tuesday morning after returning home from work, authorities said.
    Investigators were withholding additional details, including the names of the victims discovered Tuesday in a two-story home in Columbia. A neighbor told St. Louis FOX affiliate KTVI that homeowner Chris Coleman was returning from his overnight shift at Joyce Meyers Ministries to find his wife and two sons dead at about 6:30 a.m. Tuesday.
    Neighbors said the Colemans had been receiving threatening letters, and that their mailbox had been tampered with in the last week or so.

    (snips)
    Sources tell News 4's Laurie Waters that the family had been receiving threatening letters for about six months. Sources tell News 4 that the message, "I told you this would happen" was spray painted on a wall of the home.

    Neighbors say he was frantically waving and distraught in the driveway with police officers trying to calm him down. He was taken away in an ambulance. Neighbors also told News 4 that the family was receiving threats, notes in the mailbox. The family had installed security cameras inside and outside the home. Those cameras may have captured evidence that would be very important in the case.

    Look where he parked...I bet it was conveniently so the cameras can see him arrive home at 7:00 am to confirm his alibi. I notice there is plenty of room for him to pull on into the garage next to his wife's car, but he parks halfway down the driveway. What do you bet there is also a way in and out of the home where it is out of sight for the cameras, too? This guy is not fooling anyone, imo.

    He is Chief of Security for Joyce Meyer Ministries (very well known and making $$$). He sometimes travels with her (which could lean towards a GF...not Joyce, hopefully, but someone involved with the Ministry). I would not be at all surprised if he had good life insurance like you mentioned.

    This statement bothers me.: Joyce Meyer arrived in the neighborhood about 8 a.m. today to console the neighbors. Meyer told them that Chris Coleman "needs a lot of prayer. He needs to be uplifted."

    http://www.stltoday.com/stltoday/new...8?OpenDocument

    Shouldn't she have said she was there to console Chris Coleman instead of the neighbors?! She got there an hour after he arrived and found the bodies. Does she suspect he could be responsible?

    huh??

    The home on Roberts Drive is listed as owned by Christopher E. Coleman on the property deed. The home was placed in only his name in December. Prior to that, Coleman and his wife, Sheri, were listed as owners. The couple bought the home in March of 2005.

    Very cute pics of boys at the below link:

    Police have no suspects but they have security camera footage and some prior police interaction as leads in the deaths of a mom and her two sons in their Columbia home.
    Sheri Coleman, 31, and their two sons, Garrett, 11, and Gavin, 9, were all found early Tuesday strangled in their home at 2854 Robert Drive in Columbia.
    Neighbors said Chris Coleman came home early Tuesday from his job working security for Joyce Meyer Ministries, an evangelical group in Fenton, Mo., and found the bodies. He came outside, was yelling, crying and rolling on the lawn when neighbors spotted him and called police. (more at link)

    Well I am hoping he had nothing to do with this.

    I guess we will see how the investigation goes and what is learned.

    I just wondered if the Ministry has had some trouble with a fanatical extremist of some kind and somehow he got involved because he is in charge of security.

    Since only 7% of spouses kill their spouses, I am hoping he isn't one of those 7%.

    The statement from Joyce Meyer Ministries reads: "This morning, Joyce Meyer Ministries received news that Chris Coleman, a long time member of our ministry, experienced one of the greatest losses imaginable -- the loss of his family. We have assured Chris that he has our full support, encouragement, and prayer during this time of immense grief.

    "Chris Coleman is a very dear friend," Joyce Meyer said. "Dave and I are grieving with him over this unexpected and devastating tragedy. Words are not enough. He knows that our love and our sincerest prayers are with him. Chris has a long journey ahead of him, but we know that his faith is strong."


    This sounds as standoffish as the other comment she made, imo. I think she suspects something is amiss here or am I reading more into it than I should?

    Also...if they were really strangled...why are LE looking in everyone's trash and in all the manholes? Makes no sense. There must be something else which took place inside that house.

    Crime scene investigators at 10:55 a.m. were walking down Robert Drive and neighboring roads going through the detritus in trash cans lined up in front of homes waiting for the garbage collector. By 11:27 a.m. investigators were popping manhole covers and peering inside the sewer system.

    Also, there doesn't seem to be anything in the articles mentioning numerous police reports that must've happened with all the threats? What about the vandalizing of the mailbox? It seems to me that there would have been a mention from the police that there had been threats, not that he had "told neighbors." The heck with the neighbors, I'd be calling the police with every threat.
    Maj. Jeff Connor, Major Case Squad deputy commander and Granite City's assistant police chief, said police were continuing to talk with Chris Coleman.

    "I can confirm there is some prior police interaction. There were some interactions between an unknown individual and them but we don't know if it's a specific crime. I'm not ruling out anybody," Connor said during a late afternoon press conference.

    A source close to the case said someone had scrawled a message on a wall inside. The law enforcement source also said that Christopher E. Coleman called police shortly before 7 a.m. Tuesday, saying he had been at a gym in south St. Louis County and asking that they check on the welfare of his family. The source would not elaborate.

    Hmm now that is odd? he was at a gym and called police to do a welfare check? I'm so hoping this man did not kill his family, but it's not looking good.

    Also states further in the news report that they found surgical pants with stains in a trash can in the neighborhood. Maybe it wasn't stranglation?

    I remember watching a case on trutv about a man who killed his wife but set it up weeks before sending threatening letters and spray painting racial stuff on their house. He was convicted!!

    Joyce Meyer use to (and still may) do the woman's conference. It was several lay speakers that go across the country. I seen her when she came to the toyota center about 3 yrs ago. It was a neat weekend conference thing. I had fun!

    Hmmm...Hopefully, he didn't count on this! (Altho..there are two entrances to the neighborhood.)

    The city of Columbia operates a network of security cameras, including some in residential neighborhoods, and there is one near the subdivision's entrance. Police declined to discuss it Tuesday.

    Oh...the old I am at the gym after working all night...so let me call 911 ask them to go check on my family trick?! How is that workin' for ya so far, Chris?!

    Major Case Squad to give update on murders of mother, two boys

    http://www.kmov.com/topstories/stori....2015271d.html

    Police are still on the scene of a triple murder in Columbia, Ill. A News 4 crew is in Columbia and says that there are at least eight police cars at the home which is still surrounded by police tape. Investigators have opened the garage and are walking in and out of the home. (more at link)

    Thanks, Suzi~ Looking at the photos from the back of his suv, I wonder wth he had in there?! It would fit with her kicking him out maybe?

    It is very odd when they show the utility room door open and she had one of those really new appliances, but they open the back of her vehicle to find a laundry basket full of clothes plus other bags. I think this would indicate she possibly grabbed clothing to leave in a hurry.

    Yup. I think they were in the middle of a split and he did it.

    A coroner says autopsies are done on the bodies of a southwestern Illinois woman and her two sons, who were found dead inside their home outside St. Louis. But Monroe County Coroner Julie Gummersheimer says she won't discuss the results. She referred questions Wednesday to police in Columbia, the community where 31-year-old Sheri Coleman and her two children lived.
