    Names of two juveniles killed in Melrose released

    Merritt says there were at least four people in the home during the incident, two were uninjured. The cause of death for both boys have yet to be released, and the bodies were sent to Daytona for autopsy.

    Four people inside the home, two are dead. That leaves the mother and the younger sibling. How strange?

    Very strange. But look at the Putnam Sheriff’s response to the last comment in response to VW
    Putnam County Sheriff's Office no one said they were the ONLY other ones in the house”

    Action News says “Wilson is well-known to the family”
    Rumor is that he is their mother’s sister’s boyfriend.
    His name is Mark Wilson. I guess we shall see his relationship

    And we will see why he wanted to silence them. Were they about to talk about his treatment of them?

    Ugh. This breaks my heart. My oldest boy just turned 14 yesterday. :(

    I don't understand how their mother didn't hear something. A hammer and a knife. I'm not saying she had anything to do with it, and I'm sure she is asking herself the same thing. To find them in the morning and know what happened while she was sleeping... This poor, poor woman.

    I hope this piece of **** gets what he has coming to him.

    Wilson is well-known to the family and there was no immediate threat to the community. Wilson was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree murder. He was taken to the Putnam County Jail and awaiting first appearance.

  14. Sheriffs face book page said Wilson & the Aunt were staying in a shed on the property. They had been homeless.

    pictures of suspect at link; mugshot and arrest photos
    he looks like he's high in his mugshot IMO

    Wilson has an extensive criminal history involving drugs and property crimes, but no former violence, Deloach said.

    Fla. Mom Finds Sons, 12 and 14, Brutally Killed with Hammer and Knife After She Wakes Up

    This article confirms that the suspect is the mother’s sister’s boyfriend.
    “Their mother found them dead -- and their aunt’s boyfriend has been arrested in the double slaying.”
    Apparently their mom felt sorry for her homeless sister and let them stay there.
    “The boys' family had recently moved into the Melrose home after relocating from Polk County 16 days earlier. Wilson and the boys' aunt had moved into the backyard shed soon after that.”

    What could possibly have sparked such a show of rage toward these 2 young boys?? I suppose it may turn out to be drug-induced, but still. Their poor Mother. Ugh.

    Also from same article answers my question above. “It is our understanding from some of our interviews with some of the individuals associated with the case that the suspect Mark Wilson was under the influence of methamphetamine and had been for several days, and we think that may have been a contributing factor to this heinous, just rageful crime,” DeLoach tells PEOPLE.”

    Article states one of the boys may have been attacked while sleeping. The other victim was found in a different room (game room). They believe this occurred in early morning hours after the boys’ father had left for work as a long haul trucker. I’m guessing the first attack awoke the other boy and he attempted to get away. The horror.
