    Bob and Rose Cipriano were active at St. Fabian. Bob coached basketball in the Catholic Youth League.

    "We ask the Lord to help the Cipriano family in this time of agony and distress," he said...

    This reminds me of a recent case in Louisiana... the son beat the parents to death and hosted a party afterwards... how incredibly sad.

    This shows what drugs do to a person. Drugs kill, one way or the other.

    How terribly sad the entire family has to pay the price of one of their own's undoing.

    Prayers to the friends and family. May Mr. Cipriano RIP.

    This sort of family tragedy is just devastating. It rocks me to my core because I believe there but for the Grace of God go I. Substance abuse and mental illness can wreck havoc on otherwise normal loving families. I believe as parents we can do everything right, and still fall tragically short of the American ideal. I have no clue what the answer is. I can only weep for families who are just like mine, yet in one terrible moment, the world is over as they knew it. The Cipriano family statement was so sad, yet it sounds like they have a large clan to draw support from. I pray the survivors are surrounded with love and Grace as they try to heal from the wounds that are seen and unseen. Bless them all.

    This is such a horrible violent attack! My neice & nephew live near Cipriano's& went to school w/ some of the kids. They are devestated not only at the tragic loss of life but for what this made them see & what the whole community is feeling.
    I can't watch this story or look at the perps picture. It reminds me of too many families going thru the same thing right now. I am truly afraid for other parents. I can't let my young son see that this is what some children do to their parents!
    I'm praying mom & son recover.I'm praying for the other siblings that at this moment have a great father dead & their precious mother & brother lying in critical condition & 1 brother in jail for doing this to them. Oh my God, what they witnessed & the fear they felt.

    State suspends probation officer of son accused in Farmington Hills attack

    Cipriano did not show up for an appointment April 5 with his probation officer, and his whereabouts were unknown. He last met with probation officers March 15, Marlan said.

    "They have to begin an investigation to locate (the offender) within two days of a missed report," Marlan said. "If you can't find somebody, you're supposed to go ask the judge for a warrant. There's a lot of supervision standards that all of our agents are to comply with. This agent was suspended while we investigate whether or not the supervision standards were met."

    Does Adoption Detail Belong in Murder Story?

    To the Editor:

    After reading the article about the brutal attack on the Cipriano family, my stomach was in knots and my heart truly goes out to all of them. I could not believe that a boy I had gone to school with for years was capable of committing such a heinous act. The story is heartbreaking and I do not intend to demean it in anyway by saying that there is another tragedy involved here. The media has chosen to relay irrelevant information in the developing story that may be seemingly unimportant, but could cause prejudiced ideas to circulate.

    With that being said, all stories should be reported accurately and with as much detail as possible, but not at the expense of others. Frankly, I am offended that his adoption was deemed acceptable to include in the story. I am also shocked that there was not more consideration put into this matter by the professionals who aired the story.

    I'm not Bette, but I'd also like to know if it will be live-streaming. I'm just looking around clickondetroit.com right now, catching up on this case and came across this good video, "Cipriano Murder: The Events Leading Up to Now".

    If I find that clickondetroit is going to have a livestream, I'll let you know.
