    From the local newspaper (which would probably be the best place to follow updates):
    http://lagrangenews.com/news/breaking_news-home_top-news/151613074/5-found-slain-after-welfare-check

    In case you have never heard of Lagrange, Georgia it is a city of about 30,000 75 miles southeast of Atlanta just off of Interstate 85.

    The Lagrange newspaper recently updated its article to:
    so apparently there was a typo when they first published the article.

    This is terrible. So many awful crimes in Georgia lately...( I know it is not just us, it seems to be true in every state.)

    Well this is terrible, and another 20 something, RT 28 committed double and now this 26 yr old a quintuple murder with neither reportedly having no prior such crimes

    makes me wonder now about the Dermonds, how old was that attacker(s)! And if no prior convictions, that one will walk

    God bless these families, will be on the lookout for the vehicle

    This news video has a update to it that I've been wondering about .. His family. They say they spoke with his father, Melvin Lee, Jr. who lives in ALABAMA. He says he doesn't know where he is. I was interested in where his family was because he might be headed that direction. (also I live in Alabama not far from Ga.) I don't live far enough from GA till they catch him. This is the link to a very good station in GA. They always have little tidbits of information that the others don't have or don't give. http://www.wsbtv.com/news/news/local/five-bodies-found-inside-lagrange-home/nj2rK/

    Hello neighbor . I'm in Alabama on the Georgia line also. The crime occurred about 50 miles from me.

    Unfortunately I can't find much media coverage other than the original reports.

    Hey! I'm near Montgomery but have family all over GA so I read their news daily. Here are a couple of sites that are covering this case heavily. www.wsbtv.com , www.wtvm.com, www.myfoxatl.com and one in Montgomery www.wsfa.com. Hope this is helpful since you are right near there. Are you in Valley?

    They are confirming that his father Melvin Lee Jr. lives in Valley, Alabama and is cooperating with the police.

    Thanks for the links! I'm across the river from Columbus Ga but my grandma lives in Valley. I wouldn't be surprised if she knows the father. Time to call granny!
