    I am from this area and live across the Savannah river about 4 miles away now. This is so sad.
    One of my close friends has the same last name as the killer and I do not know if they are related yet. I hate guns. :(

    There has been a lot of local violence recently. A few weeks ago 10 people were arrested and charged with murder in the stabbing death of a teenager during
    a huge fight. Parents were also involved. Something is seriously wrong.

    I just heard from my friend and they are related, brother. We have been close friends for 15 years and they are very nice good people.
    Cannot remember if I have met Wayne before. I feel like throwing up.

    I agree: Things are very, very 'wrong' here in the USA. Gheesh it's barely spring. Things are incredibly TERRIBLE here in the Minneapolis & St. Paul areas: Shootings, shootings and more shootings, on & on !!

    And you get all the psychos who do copykat slayings.

    I've read that people who do the mass murders, in THEIR freakin' heads, think they're making a name for themselves in this life. I say: Volunteer & work your tail off for all those in need, the poor, the broken, the forgotten. Sign up & go regularly into the jails & prisons & be a source of light & hope, & peace & kindness. Give to others 'sneakily', so that your good deeds aren't found out ! Be modest about how you give to others. We each have special talents. Reminds me of the story of the 'monstrous' man, a janitor who murdered his wife: Someone said, 'He was careful about cleaning the corners of the floor'.

    MinnesotaMary, they are making a name for themselves alright and it's not a good name. I know this is one of the traits where psychos differ and their victims are not human, just a target I guess. I am the last person to play shrink and get into someones head who has done monstrous deeds.

    I have heard and read where some surviving victims told of how they tried to make themselves human with feelings and a family and also made the perp feel they were loved by the victim in order to be spared.

    Wayne did not kill his soon to be ex-wife and I think it may be to punish her.
    I was real surprised to hear he did not kill her and to me it's very telling.

    I would love to volunteer in prisons and jails and I'm sure there are programs out there for volunteers who would need to go through training first. I have PTSD and anxiety from quite a few past traumas that include abduction and a rape in 2004 that I haven't received any therapy for. I need all the help I can get and I believe this would help and in turn if I can help others, I'm all for it.
    Actually, for me to talk about my past traumas here at Websleuths does help. I need to search for the correct thread though.

    IzzyBlanche, thank you so much.
    Actually, I am a wuss. The smallest things scare the death out of me. Every time my DH walks into the same room as me (unannounced), I freak the heck out. I carry mace, a wooden club and a stunner in my car.
    He needs to wear bells and I need Xanax.

    From post # 18: "...kind of a ticking time bomb..." Those types can be so scary.:(
    @ U2forever ; I am sorry for you and for your friend's loss. Really hits home when it happens to people you know or to a friend who is related to the victims.

    Why can't people just take themselves out without harming anyone ? Or better yet -- get some professional help and try to restore your life and solve your issues ?

    Rest in eternal peace to the victims.
