    LIVINGSTON, Texas -- Neighbors of a man arrested for the shooting deaths of four of his family members described an individual who became isolated and disheveled in the months after his wife moved out of their home and asked for a divorce after 51 years of marriage.

    The bodies were found Thursday in a burning mobile home after the man surrendered to authorities.


    Joann and Harold Struthers were neighbors of the couple for 17 years at the Escapees RV Club, a trailer park about 75 miles northeast of Houston in the wooded outskirts of Livingston.While the RV park has sites for individuals who can rent by the night or week, most of the lots are owned by individuals, many retirees, who live for years in either homes they construct or in mobile homes."

    This is a very quiet community," said Joann Struthers. The couple "never argued, never yelled. I was crying after learning what happened. They were dear people."

    Polk County Sheriff Billy Ray Nelson said the man, who is in his 70s, surrendered to deputies Thursday afternoon, saying he had shot his family."When he turned himself in he showed no signs of remorse," Nelson said. "He was very calm. He just wanted to report it."
