    TX - Joy, 34, & Jodi Hummel, 5, Eddie Bedford, 57, murdered, Kennedale, 18 Dec 2009

    These murders happened a week before Christmas, Dec 18.

    John Hummel admits to stabbing Joy Hummel (his pregnant wife) multiple times. He then goes into Clyde "Eddie" Bedford's (FIL) bedroom and beats him with a baseball bat. This next bit is hard to write, he goes into 5yr old Jodi Hummel's bedroom and uses the same bat on her. He set the house on fire and drove away.

    He returned several hours later while the police and fire departments were there and gave a statement. The next day he was gone. Concerned relatives and friends filed a missing persons report concerned that his grief would be overwhelming.

    He was detained while crossing into the U.S.(California) from Mexico on Sunday Dec 20. Had it not been for the missing persons report, this POS would still be out there.

    This link is just one of the reports about these murders

    I'm not sure if I can post a link to his myspace page, but it's not hard to find. He is from Kennedale, Tx and the only 2 that show up are both his.
    The first one has several pictures of his beautiful wife and adorable daughter.

    I do not understand how a man could do this to his family...it breaks my heart.

    Kat, I don't think we could ever understand how a father could beat his own beautiful little girl with a baseball bat and stab his wife and FIL. Then the coward starts a fire?

    Yeah, Johnnyfiredragon took his zombie stuff to a new level. What in heaven's name could cause a man to hurt his family like that?

    It's all too sad. I think this is a different link. The arraignment. That photo at this link I bet them cops wanted to beat him senseless.

    It took me awhile, but I found him looking to join a Dungeons and Dragons group. That was back in 2008. Not that it has anything to do with these horrific murders, but I'm looking for anything on this guy.http://dnd.meetup.com/cities/us/tx/burleson/

    I found the myspace pages. There's a few pics where he seems to be just as his status is, "overstimulated". Or at least his eyes look that way. There's also a picture where he has on a security guard uniform. Of course none of this gives any insight as to why he would do such a horrible thing.

    ITA. His eyes are just creepy in some of those pics - like black holes. He had a beautiful family.

    My heart goes out to those who remain to pick up the pieces.

    Clyde was in a wheel chair and could not put up much of a fight. Hummel worked as a security guard.
    If there's hink....there must be stink.

    This is the only picture I could find of Mr. Bedford

    One of the comments left talks about him speeding down the halls on his scooter.

    This is so sad. What a beautiful and tender looking little girl. How are we expected to draw a correlation from the lovely wedding photo or the "just after birth" photo and the horrible crime committed.

    He lists himself as his own hero. In one of the photos, John's even wearing a Christian t-shirt "Actions Speak Louder Than Words". Indeed.

    There are three things that really worry me. One is a photo on John's MS of him dancing with his daughter (page 2 of Pics). They are both all in red and it looks as if she's standing on a bed next to a man (am I right, here?). The other is his most recent comment by a woman named "C". If you check out her MS, there's something creepy. A guy she knows really well just murdered his family and she feels "aroused" today? There's also the detail on her page of "partying with "P" and my ex" and some questionable comments about kids. Lastly, check out one of his friends, Madame "M". Her MS page is not a cheery one and she last posted 12/16.

    Yuck. Do we have to go there...again? You don't think that this slimeball hurt his baby girl and the other two found out about it, do you?

    Also note the comment left on John's MS by his wife on July 8. 2007. That strikes me as odd. I wonder what he did that frightened her so much?

    God I hope not Missizzy!

    In regards to the picture of them dancing, I don't think there is anyone else there. It does look like she is standing on a bed. What looks like a leg may be a body pillow, and the upper torso looks like a jacket draped over a chair. I can see how this could look like another person though I hope not.
    Those other MS pages you mentioned really creep me out.

    I went by their house today. I found out it is only about 5 miles from my house. Looking at it really broke my heart! Little Angel's swing set and some of her toys are out back and a very nice memorial to all of them is out front with a Christmas tree.

    I would really like to know why, although any answer will not ever be sufficient.

    May their souls rest in peace.

    4Kat--I'm so sorry you had to see their house. That must be devastatingly sad. I have to disagree about the photo, though. Of course, you could be right but I really think that the little girl is standing on a bed, sort of behind a guy wearing tweed pants and a dark top. You can just see the tip of his head/hat behind her back where the Dad's hand is. It looks as if the man is doing something on a ledge or a desk and that there's a model and a sword there.

    I think the reason this picture really bugs me is that there's an almost identical one which I saw on Darrin Daly's MS. He's the guy from Oregon who was selling time with little girls on Craigslist.

    Given some of John's friends, I'm really afraid that there might have been something nasty going on. And notice that his wife was pregnant. Pregnant women are not known for staying calm and complacent when confronted with horrible realities. They are in protection mode!! Just a theory here but I think she might have caught John or confronted him about what he was doing and he went off the deep end. That might explain the sequence of murders. Has anyone seen the autopsy reports on the child?

    On December 6th, he had "too much going on in his mind to think straight". He murdered his family 12 days later. A mental break or knowledge that he'd been caught in something?

    Can someone explain to me why John Hummel's Myspace page was last upgraded on 1/11/10 and the last log in was 2/5/10?

    Being that he killed his pregnant wife, young daughter, and disabled father-in-law, it seems odd that someone would be logging on. I've not found any updates in this case. I was very interested in learning what the autopsy showed for the daughter. Is that being sealed until trial? I have suspicions that John's wife, Joy, might have learned some information that he didn't want her taking to authorities. Just a hunch.

    I wonder if he's being provided his Zombie books at the county jail?

    I noticed that, too.
    I wonder if LE sometimes logs into an accused's social netoworking accounts to look for clues?

    And I agree with what others said about his...interesting eyes. I always find it intriguing when someone is smiling in their picture, but the smile doesn't reach their eyes, if you know what I mean.
