    So I am assuming that Armie went by his middle name of Troy?

    Troy Isom had been in construction for many years, Mineer said.

    What about this groundskeeper too, can't exactly rule him out, and isn't he the source of the first sighting of someone leaving the home, and perhaps also the source of these lawsuit rumours?

    Red herrings?

    I think in-law might mean son-in-law (or daughter-in-law I suppose) ..

    Not if it was meant specifically for them, to kill them as they were receiving threats a relative said weeks before the murders. I doubt that a crazed lunatic is running around loose, although this is pretty revengeful I'd say. But perhaps just meant for them alone. No robbery reported. Oftentimes being very wealthy you can create lots of enemies on the way up.

    Interesting that the couples daughter is diverting questions away from the possible connection to these lawsuits.

    Does she KNOW or does she just not want to believe?

    First time posting. I live in the area and have heard from neighbors that the couple's "guard dogs" had gone missing about 6 weeks earlier. Also, the daughter lives a few houses down.

    Is the daughter the one connected to the ex in-law with the lawsuits? If so well, doesn't that just stink?

    "As confirmed by detectives, neighbors said Armie Isom was involved in a number of business dealings; subdividing property on the lot in La Verne; commercial businesses; and gold mines.
    He was also involved in a massive lawsuit said to be worth $20 million.
    Court records show that a previous lawsuit filed by the Isoms’ one-time son-in-law was dismissed. Detectives said they are looking into other lawsuits."

    Is discussing lawsuits off limits, if we find info on ct docket or filings? Seems like they could identify a motive, esp a dismissed lawsuit.

    As a rule in most states, an inheritance is not counted as community property and is not divided. It belongs solely to the person it is left to.

    Nothing to add to the case but this is kinda :cool: imo. If you go to street view and look right, you will notice a man standing by a white truck and waving. Toggle down and you will see the shadow from the goggle car and the driver is either waving or giving the peace sign.

    My thoughts also lead away from the "transient"....unless he wasn't one at all but rather someone either hired to eliminate the couple or someone they knew, in disguise. The manner in which they were murdered seems personal, versus using a firearm.

    The dogs went missing? How convenient and if connected to the murders, shows someone was planning this weeks ago. The "transient" would be eliminated as a POI.

    MOO
