    With the ongoing criminal case against the father for armed burglary where he beat a guy
    with a gun and the reported felony conviction
    in Indiana for a Sex Crime, similar to statutory
    rape, it seems like the father had a propensity
    for violence and power over others.
    Did he act on this with his son? Was he violent
    towards MS? Was he a domineering, violent
    husband who wouldn't allow his wife to get mental health help for his son? Some people still view mental health counseling for sissies
    and don't want to admit they need help.

    <modsnip: removed social media rumor>

    MS had a hard, difficult family life, no doubt.
    Did he just reach a breaking point and decided
    he could take no more? Sounds like it.

    I am so sad that this boy was failed. I am so sad that we (collectively, society) let him fall through the cracks. I am so sad for all the people this tragedy has and will continue to touch. Beyond devastating.

    Well the father is dead now at the hands of the son so any answers to those questions will come from lawyers and paid experts trying to mitigate punishment. Lots of not so borderline victim blaming in this thread

    They're gonna treat him as a juvenile. I'm pretty sure about that. I hope I'm wrong but I'm know how district attorneys are when it comes to "juveniles", "minors"....they're all sweet and tender.
    This monster is gonna spend 4/5 years (maybe less) in a minimum security prison and then...free like the wind...
    Disgusting o_O

    Yes, that's way beyond just needing counselling or therapy. Burning animals Alive is shocking, startling, and downright evil. That calls for serious intervention.

    The overwhelming majority of so-called familicides are committed by adults. Children are killed by their parents far more often than the reverse. Sibling killings are the least common form of domestic homicide.

    We're all talking about this because it is so rare. If it were the kind of thing that happens all the time, it'd just be local news.

    Mason Sisk: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

    Sep 4, 2019

    "Mason Sisk, only 14, was identified by family members to WAAY 31-TV as the teenage boy in Elkmont, Alabama who is accused of shooting five members of his own family to death, including his father, stepmother and three young siblings.

    One of the siblings was only an infant. Heavy has also confirmed that the adult male victim, John Sisk, had a 14-year-old son named Mason Sisk. However, authorities have not yet officially named the suspect in the family murders because he’s a juvenile and only facing juvenile murder charges at this time. They said, though, that this could change and the suspect could be waived into adult court and even theoretically face the death penalty....

    Here’s what you need to know:..."

    If he did have reactive attachment disorder, then he may have seemed like he was protective and loving when others were around him. But in reality that is sometimes a symptom but not sincere feelings and emotions of love and attachment. Hard to explain but I have seen it in action.

    Kids will reach out to others and 'be loving' and kind and appear to be fine, but it can be just a mimicking of loving behaviour, and below the surface, they do not have those concrete feelings and emotions and bonding with their family. It is eerie when you see it play out that way.

    You are likely right. I have a hard time with so many of these cases because I can't relate at all. I came from a good and stable home. Same with my husband. We provide the same for our kids. Our entirely lives revolve around our children's needs. And I tend to assume the best of people when they don't necessarily deserve it. There are a lot of people who come from horrible backgrounds and probably have no idea how horrible it really is. I'm just reading of that poor little one Skylea. Everyone in her life was just garbage and ok with it and clearly thought they were normal.

    I don't think the cousin made up all of this stuff about the boy, if she's making these statements it's because someone told her that.

    That might be true.
    I wonder who told her that he just found out his stepmom wasn't his real mom? Because didn't he live with her until he was 6yrs? Confusing...

    You could be right. But until it's confirmed it is only rumor. I thought that rumor was not allowed on WS anyway. We need an approved source.

    "
    14-year-old charged with killing 5 members of his family in Elkmont
    The sheriff's office said the handgun was illegally in the home but would not elaborate. Records show John Sisk pleaded guilty to a felony charge of sexual misconduct with a minor in Indiana in 1999, and it is illegal for a convicted felon to possess a gun. It's not clear who the apparent murder weapon belonged to.

    This is kind of off topic but Reactive Attachment Disorder as it appears in the DSM is characterized by either overly withdrawn or overly affectionate behavior and needs to be diagnosed before age 5. It doesn't involve any aggressive or violent behaviors.
