    This is very close to me. My Husband works in this small town just south of Indpls.
    I pray it isn't someone close to the family. But yet it scares you that it could be totally random. Either way senseless.
    I will try to see if there are any updates locally.

    Here is what was in this mornings paper
    http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20060726/NEWS01/607260468

    Dickus found his wife, Chynna, 26, and Blake, 10, his son from a previous marriage, dead about 5 p.m. Monday upon returning from his job at NSK Corp., a Franklin auto parts manufacturing plant, to the couple's new home in the Branigin Woods subdivision on Franklin's northside.
    The victims suffered multiple stab wounds, Franklin Police Chief John Borges said. Police said they had not identified anyone as a suspect by late Tuesday.
    "We were financially broke and didn't know how we were going to pay for everything, but we were happy," Dickus said Tuesday in a phone interview. "It is unimaginable to think about not being with her. I hope I can be as gracious in her death as she was in life."

    I used to live in Franklin, lived there almost all my life. Stuff like that doesn't happen there. I didn't know the victims but my heart goes out to the families involved. I hope they catch who did this, and soon. :behindbar

    I know C.P. Morgan has been building alot of homes in Franklin and Shelbyville. I think the more homes we get built there will be more crimes.I don't know what kind of screening they do in hiring their employees. I do know they are spitting out many homes, therefore, many construction workers.

    Call me a cynic, but does the father have an airtight alibi? Did someone see him working through lunch? After all, he works just a few minutes from his home.

    I was thinking the same thing. I am sure he is being looked at. He seems so sweet and sincere in his interviews. Maybe with all the new construction going on it could have been a robbery from a worker....

    Hi this is my first post on here, but i have been a reader for a while. When I first saw him speak it kinda creeped me out. I think it was his choice of words that hit home. Please reread his staements and tell me if you agree. I have been reading them all day and its the choice of words that throw me off.

    My God this is terrible. The only thing I can think of is that the husband/father is extremely detailed in his answers to the reporters questions.Almost scripted?..I don't really know I just hope and pray to God whoever did this gets caught and pays for what he/she did. :confused:

    You would think so huh?! Dang I feel bad to think it was the father who did this because I will feel so GUILTY and ashamed if it comes to not be him but for some reason I always tend to think of immediate family first. He mentioned something in his interview about financial hardships? Who thinks of finances when your wife and child were brutally murdered? I don't know the man so this could just be his personality and if so I will be the first to come back to this website and apologize profusely!

    I agree but most cases of this nature it is usally the family whose has committed the crime. I waited to say it but I really think the cops need to look this guy over very close. JMO

    I hate to say it, too, but the husband/father is usually the perp, it's usually not random like this. This one bears watching. Prayers for the poor mom, Christina.

    I noticed it as well. His absence of emotion was apparent too.I will also apologize and I have done that a few times.But in this instance he doesn't have his heart on his sleeve. He looks less aggreived than me.

    I'm sorry, but I totally disagree. I saw a Christian man of faith. I beleive he is drawing his strength from the Lord. I saw much emotion from him on our local T.V. I pray I will never have to wear those shoes.

    From the above link...

    "Only investigators and the killer or killers know what happened Monday afternoon,” he said of undisclosed evidence and the crime’s timeframe."
