    My brother and his family live in LaVerne.
    When I saw this yesterday I called to make sure it wasn't him!

    Prayers to this poor couple.
    You live to be 89 and then you're murdered at your own home.
    This world. I just don't understand it.

    I'm not sure this was simply a random burglary gone wrong. Maybe it was, but my hinky meter is hovering in the yellow zone at this point.

    You know, just mapping the winding route it takes to reach the Isoms' home, wondering how much eighty acres of Los Angeles County real estate is worth, stuff like that.

    Agree, I very much doubt this so called transient man had anything to do with it, my bet the culprit will be a LOT closer to home, especially with a beating.

    "A source with close ties to the family of Armie and Shirley Isom claims the slain couple received threats just weeks before their deaths."

    I'd be looking at this source first if I was LE unless these 'threats' were actually reported to police by the couple.

    ETA: "The unidentified source told KCAL9&#8217;s Tom Wait the threats allegedly came from other relatives who wanted a piece of the Isoms&#8217; fortune."

    Gotta love christmas time ..

    The night this happened-or maybe it was the next day, the news was talking to neighbors, several people were talking about the transient looking man - (not saying it was or wasn't an actual relative or former inlaw) but the person definitely didn't seem to fit into the area.

    subscribing the lazy way. This shapes up to be an interesting investigation. very sad that these folks were so brutally murdered. And in a place that should have been the safest in the world for them, their own home. :(

    My husbands side of the family is banned from visiting us here this christmas after they showed up last year wanting to know the value of the property, what the plantation was worth, did nothing but read real estate pamphlets, and enquired about a recent sale across the road, when the husband told us he thought my mother in law looked frail and should move in with them she's the one who ended up snapping and sent them packing. It's horrible when family members start circling older members for real estate, I hope that's not what happened here :(

    Someone asked for a map? Or did I just imagine that?

    So is that their acerage sitting on the edge of a housing development?

    Primed for sub-division.

    They could have made a fortune if they had enough to invest in the infrastructure which would have been a simple matter of a bank loan.

    Not surprised the vultures were circling :(

    You know .. this is pretty detailed, if true surely the other homes in the area have CCTV out the front and could possibly verify ..

    Jose Tamayo, a gardener who was working nearby, told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune he saw the man exit the property minutes before the bodies were discovered.
    He was wearing a green jacket with a hood, a baseball cap and jeans. Tamayo said he picked up a backpack from the nearby bushes, put it on and walked away.
    Neighbor Don Mineer told the newspaper he saw the man walking down the road.

    "He wasn't hurrying, but he wasn't wasting a lot of time," Mineer said. "Now that I think about it, he looked like he was trying to be inconspicuous."

    I only say IF because sometimes someone says they saw something, then someone else agrees, and before you know it several people saw something, when in reality the first person had made a false claim, thinking of the Leila Fowler case.

    That would appear to be some prime real estate.
