These murders happened a week before Christmas, Dec 18. John Hummel admits to stabbing Joy Hummel (his pregnant wife) multiple times. He then goes into Clyde "Eddie" Bedford's (FIL) bedroom and beats him with a baseball bat. This next bit is hard to write, he goes into 5yr old Jodi Hummel's bedroom and uses the same bat on her. He set the house on fire and drove away. He returned several hours later while the police and fire departments were there and gave a statement. The next day he was gone. Concerned relatives and friends filed a missing persons report concerned that his grief would be overwhelming. He was detained while crossing into the U.S.(California) from Mexico on Sunday Dec 20. Had it not been for the missing persons report, this POS would still be out there. This link is just one of the reports about these murders http://www.star-telegram.com/local/story/1862588.html?storylink=digger-topic I'm not sure if I can post a link to his myspace page, but it's not hard to find. He is from Kennedale, Tx and the only 2 that show up are both his. The first one has several pictures of his beautiful wife and adorable daughter. I do not understand how a man could do this to his family...it breaks my heart.
