    This case has been on my mind a lot because I used to live around that neighborhood...it's very disturbing and as they arrested the suspects today, took another turn for the weird:

    There seem to be few clues in any of the coverage as to what this could be about. The girlfriend apparently wasn't home, but he was there anyways. And three guys brutally attacking one victim? The initial reports said nothing about robbery or such as a motive. This seems like it was personal, somehow.

    According to your link, the perps are charged with both murder and robbery. Why would they beat someone so violently just to steal something? I wonder if this is gang or drugs related?

    Hope they lock these guys up for a really long time.

    A fourth suspect has been arrested now:

    The headline calls it a "machete attack" now, but the cause of death is blunt force trauma. This is the first mention I have seen of a machete. How horrific, either way. :(

    A lot of commenters on the news articles are speculating it had to do with drugs, but this seems like it must have been planned and plotted, do drug deals gone bad usually involve premeditation?
