    I read about this earlier today....the firemen had to have counseling it affected them so much....they were really torn up that they couldn't save these beautiful kids.

    I'll see if I can find the link.

    BRB.

    ETA:

    Administrators realize firefighters are professionals but are also human. They need a way to grieve loss, just like relatives and friends.
    ..............
    Despite their efforts, three of the four people whom they rescued that day died; all three are children. That would be tough on anyone, especially people who are dedicated to saving lives.

    "We know we gave every effort we could. We worked hard; we did everything we could. We're professionals. We move on and continue our service to the community," said Latimer

    "It's hard when you have a very macho personnel. We can do this, and they put a shell on the outside. But what you find is they do open up. It concerns us when they don't," said Chief David Hall.

    Peer counselors have already talked to all the firefighters from the scene. Those with children the same age as the victims will get special attention. The service doesn't want to see any more victims after this tragedy.

    "Over time, after the call is over, you start thinking, firefighters can think about that. So, we can be proactive about that," said Hall

    Prayers for all the families affected.

    According to that link you provided, Williams is a registered sex offender. How was he allowed to live in that house with 3 small children? This mother needs to answer some questions. jmo

    In the article, it mentions that the accused is a RSO, so the mother moves him into a home with her 3 young children after he gets out of prison? :banghead: :furious:
    and now she is standing by him... I am just so very sick and tired of this, time after time.

    I live just 22 miles from this crime. I watched the mom twice on the local news today and there were NO TEARS..... dammit, I asked my husband if he thought she was telling the truth and of course he said she was upset about her children. SHe looked like Susan Smith to me and there were no REAL tears and she just did not look grief stricken to me and how can she defend a man that probably killed her children.
    I bet he probably did something to those children and covered it up this way.... OMG how can this continue to happen and HOW CAN ONLY HIM AND HER GET OUT OF THAT HOUSE> something is VERy WRONG and Springfield police will find out what happened.

    Williams is, IMO, a lyin' POS....he claims he went into the house to try to save the kids-- but police said he didn't smell like smoke, had no singed hair, no soot etc on him...a K9 smelled accelerant on his jeans....K9 also detected accelerant on the porch, front door/entry way, & the living room.

    Here's a link to the probable cause doc -- http://images.bimedia.net/documents/arson+probable+cause+statement.pdf

    Here's another link to article Investigators don't believe mother's fiancé tried to save children from fire

    http://www.ky3.com/news/local/88256002.html

    There's link to interviews w/ Violet-- http://www.ky3.com/home/video/88307647.html -- how could she support a kid-killer?? :furious:

    ITA w/ Bathbuddys....this scum probably did something to those one or all of those kids & didn't wanna go to jail over it.

    Charge dropped in arson that left 3 children dead

    Friday, April 23, 2010 at 12:56 p.m.

    SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) -- An arson charge has been dropped against a southwest Missouri man in a fire that killed three children.
    ....................................................

    Williams was charged after a fire investigation dog indicated accelerant on his jeans and in three places in the home.

    But Greene County authorities say laboratory tests found no trace of an accelerant.

    The prosecutor's office says the case is dismissed pending further investigation.

    You have got to be kidding me. The mother alone is causing my hinky-meter to go crazy. It doesn't sound like they have completely dropped it yet, just looking for more evidence. There is something very wrong with the mother here. If she wasn't involved, I will eat my hat.

    personally i think the guy is scum, and the mother is an idiot.

    but the forensic labs have messed this up by having contradictory evidence (or lack there of evidence) and now we will probably never know the real truth.
