    Husband, wife and 5-year-old daughter dead in 'horrific' slaying in Santa Barbara County home
    http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-triple-homicide-santa-barbara-20160324-story.html

    "Dr. Weidong Henry Han; his wife, Huijie Yu, 29; and their daughter, Emily Han, were found dead Wednesday in their home in the 4600 block of Greenhill Way."

    "Authorities said the trio were homicide victims and have said the killings were not random."

    “Sheriff’s detectives are actively investigating this case and are working around the clock to determine who is responsible for this horrific crime,” Santa Barbara County sheriff's spokeswoman Kelly Hoover said.

    “Detectives are following up on all leads and while they are not ruling out any possibilities, early indications are that this was not a random attack.”

    I can't imagine why anyone would want to murder this doctor who sounds like he devoted his life to healing people, and to also murder his wife and 5 yr. old little daughter. Looks like they lived in a very nice area.

    Triple Homicide on Greenhill Way
    UPDATE: Victims Identified as Dr. Weidong “Henry” Han, Wife Huijie “Jennie” Yu, and Daughter Emily
    http://www.independent.com/news/2016/mar/24/triple-homicide-greenhill-way/

    This news article tells of another horrific family murder in August 2014 of a boy that attended the same school.
    What a shame, the students have to somehow absorb this kind of terrible information without developing PTSD.

    Curious Me, I cannot imagine either. Evil, just plain evil.
    I have a feeling the killer is someone they know and it is probably greed, well greed is at the top of my short list.

    You know what they say...Only the good die young. With that said, I will live forever.

    I wonder if the home was looted or if it's one of those business connections. But why kill the whole family? This is probably going to be one of my insomnia nights.

    Leave no witnesses, is my first thought.

    I did not read anything about the crime scene being staged or if anything was missing.

    Curious Me, can you please explain the corporation connection please?

    Sorry, at first I assumed he had some corporate connections, but then changed my wording to business connections.

    U2forever, we both follow the Dr. Sievers case. I think she would've like Dr. Han and they would have had a lot in common in their theories about modern medicine.

    I see he wrote a couple of books:

    "Ancient Herbs, Modern Medicine"

    "Healing Our Planet, Healing Our Selves: The Power of change Within to Change the World"

    I thought about Dr. Sievers while reading about Dr. Han. East meets west. They probably would have had a connection.
    Thanks for the link.

    The first things that came to my head is that it might be work related. Perhaps a patient who was psychotic and was receiving some kind of treatment. That just happened yesterday in an unrelated case:

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/03/2...ed-in-apparent-murder-suicide-police-say.html

    Or perhaps a family member who lost a loved one because the treatment failed.

    Another possibility, which we have frequently seen, it could be someone the family hired to help at the home.

    Waiting to learn more of what LE has to solve these horrific crimes. An angry patient, an old lover, a greedy family member, a business connection ..what possesses someone to kill even a 5 yr. old little girl???

    I hope LE can find some evidence to point them to the killer(s). Sounds like LE need people to come forward at this point. It wasn't random, but what was it?

    The home looks somewhat secluded and I doubt anyone would hear the crimes occurring. Somebody in a comments section linked a map to the property and I took a look. The property seems to sit on a hill with only one road leading up to it. There's a residential area of houses and streets below someone would have to use to get to the one road leading up to their house. Hey, I wonder if there's cameras or a home security system.

    There's some pictures of their home. The wife went by the name Jennie, and had such lovely long hair in one pic. I haven't seen any photos of 5 yr. old Emily.

    Can't get to the actual story yet as I don't subscribe to this newspaper. Yikes, the suspect was arrested in San Diego...that's where I live.

    Makes me sick! And very sad. :tears: Killed a little girl and her parents because of his greed. Sheriff's Department did a great job apprehending the suspect within days.

    :rose: RIP Henry, Jennie, and Emily :rose:

    Suspect arrested in Goleta triple murder

    ...all three suffered gunshot wounds and that their bodies were wrapped in plastic and duct tape and placed in the garage.

    re Motive: Sheriff Bill Brown said early indications are that it was for financial gain.

    :-(

    RIP to the Han family with condolences to all who knew them
