    One possible explanation as to what went wrong. In the video at the link one acquaintance says 'not the best family dynamics'.

    My sister literally lives within 2 blocks of where the murder occurred.
    She's following this very closely. No one seems to know a motive yet.


    She found the father's twitter account, it's actually hard to read/follow. I think it was in 2011, he references both his children attempting suicide. He talks about his ex-wife, etc. Just from reading the dad's words, it's no wonder there might have been chaos in the home environment. I "think" my sister said she thought Daniel lived with the mother.

    This happened right near where I used to live. Daniel is just a year younger than my child. He has had a lot of mental health issues and has been hospitalized on numerous occasions over the past few years. He was suffering from anorexia, as well. His parents had a very messy divorce and custody battle, as well as financial problems as a result of the divorce. Daniel took their divorce very, very hard. He was on independent study to stay afloat academically, and he was very intelligent.

    I find a few things curious: 1) He did not know the Northrups and there is no apparent motive; 2) He is a very short, frail kid, which makes it very difficult to believe he could have stabbed two people to death like that (they were in very good shape for their age); and 3) It's so unusual for a teen to commit such a crime and not tell anyone about it (nor did his behavior change).

    Considering the fact that multiple jurisdictions and the FBI assisted with processing the crime scene, I feel fairly certain they have the right guy. However, so many unanswered questions certainly cast an ounce of doubt. Plus I know so many people who know him who can't imagine him doing such a thing. I think that since he had been recently hospitalized it's very likely that he was on psyche meds, and we all know how detrimental they can be to children and teens.

    This one hit way too close to home, and I feel bad for this kid even though I know I probably shouldn't.

    Thanks for your insight, Sunday.
    I hope we find out more about what went so horribly wrong here.

    To think of the terror that the victims went through, and to try to understand what could have possibly led this young guy to do such a horrific thing and still go about his daily life....:notgood:

    We have made so little progress in understanding mental health issues.

    I am so pleased that this case has turned out this way, so many murderers, mass murderers and serial killers have started their lives this way.

    Here is one story I remember: http://www.smh.com.au/national/a-da...ryant-into-a-mass-murderer-20090427-ajk4.html

    He would have continued killing, so many more would have died before he got caught. Sometimes they are born insane, others have something happen to them that sends them insane. Once they start they don't stop. It is especially hard for the people who know them and cannot see it in them, they see the other side of their personality. There is little point is saying "think of the victims, whenever you start to feel sorry for them - think of the victims".
    I know a victim of Martin Bryant, he could have been stopped many years earlier, at the same age as Daniel William Marsh.

    By stopping Daniel William Marsh now "by reason of insanity" I have no doubt he would have continued and his carnage could have been tragic.

    Davis Teen’s Murder Trial Underway

    In her opening statement, Deputy District Attorney Amanda Zambor
    told the jury that Marsh may just be a teenager, but he is a young man who stabbed 87-year-old Oliver Northup and his 76-year-old wife Claudia Maupin 60 times each.

    Zambor also showed the jury a taped video clip of Marsh confessing the murders to detectives.

    But Marsh’s attorney Ron Johnson argues another story: Daniel is just a teenager suffering from severe depression. Next, his medical records were opened up. Johnson claimed he has proof that Daniel’s anti-depressant medications played a contributing factor to his homicidal behavior.
