    They are talking about this on our local news.

    The sister was 4 months pregnant and the 2 yr old was hers. 2 other children were not home. When a relative brought them home this afternoon around 2pm that is when the victims were found. the brother that was killed was married. Four bodies were found inside the home, and one was found in the pond.

    They did not say. The wife of the brother who was killed was interviewed, but she did not say either. I'm thinking he is an adult though.

    I don't know how many more of these atrocities I can stand hearing about.

    It almost seems as if each new crime is more horrific than the previous one.

    There is truly evil among us...

    I am just speechless. God please bless and comfort this family and their friends in their time of need. They are all in my prayers. I hope the brother that did this never see's the light of day again.

    CAPITAL MURDER CHARGES FILED AGAINST THOMAS


    (JANUARY 20TH, 2010)

    Capital murder charges have been filed against 20-year old Maron Thomas in the deaths of five of his family members.

    Thomas, who was arrested for burglary early Sunday morning, remains in the Austin County jail under a million dollar bond.

    <snipped>


    Officers recovered a shotgun and handgun near the scene. Initial autopsy results showed that all of the victims died of gunshot wounds. The child&#8217;s body had been decapitated and her head was found near the body.

    Medical Examiners found no evidence that Kiana Phearse was pregnant at the time of the murders.

    It appears a domestic dispute occurred the night of the murders but a motive for the killings remains unclear.

    <snipped>

    The Texas Rangers and Crimes Scene Investigators are assisting the Austin County Sheriff&#8217;s office in this case. District Attorney Travis Koehne said he will present to the case to the grand jury a week from now, on January 27th. Koehne says he has not decided yet if he will seek the death penalty for Thomas.

    Texas man charged in deaths of 5 family members

    BELLVILLE, Texas (AP) &#8212; A southeast Texas man was charged Wednesday in the weekend shooting deaths of five family members, including his 2-year-old niece, who also was decapitated.

    Maron Thomas, 20, remains jailed on a $1 million bond, accused in the deaths of his mother, stepfather, sister, brother and niece. Police said Thomas was naked when he was caught trying to break into a neighbor's home after the shootings.

    "This is one of the most horrific crimes we've had," Austin County District Attorney Travis Koehn said.

    Investigators said an ongoing family dispute led to the shootings, but they declined to give additional details.

    Preliminary autopsy reports indicate all five died of gunshot wounds, and the 2-year-old girl was decapitated with a machete. Her head was found near her body, Austin County Sheriff's Department Sgt. Paul Faircloth said

    "The child’s body had been decapitated and her head was found near the body."

    :furious:

    Words are hard to come by, but after glancing at the photo of the suspect posted above with that sick little smirk on his face, I would hazard a guess of drug-fueled madness and/or demonic possession.

    Capital murder charge filed in Bellville massacre


    BELLVILLE — A family dispute pushed Maron Thomas to go on a rampage marked by a fury so intense that he decapitated his 2-year-old niece with a machete after killing her and four other family members, Austin County investigators said Wednesday.

    <snipped>

    Investigators declined to elaborate on the nature of the household dispute, but said a family fight happened on the night of the killings.

    “There was an ongoing internal situation within the dynamics of this family,” said Texas Ranger David Maxwell.

    <snipped>

    Thomas' sister, Ka'Tara Price, 24, of Houston, said she believes anger and Thomas' conversion to the Muslim religion influenced his actions. She said she is not aware of him suffering from any mental illness.

    “It's anger and pure evilness,” Price said Wednesday night. “He's always been a very angry person. If he thinks he's right, he's right.”

    Price said another family member told her that her brother had a disagreement with their mother before the killings, but she doesn't know what it was about.
