    What a shame!!! This article states that a friend spoke with them, & that they were headed out of town, & then an hour later their vehicle, a 2011 Mercury Grand Marquis was no longer in the driveway.

    The car, with their suitcase inside was the only thing taken from the home & has been recovered.

    Poor couple. I hope they find out who murdered them.

    another sad & senseless death :(

    <snips>

    The Blands, both in their 80s, were found dead Friday night in their home in the 100 block of Conduit Road. They reportedly died of blunt-force trauma to the head.
    ..................
    Police have also confirmed that someone broke into the Blands' home last summer and tried to steal a safe but abandoned it in the yard.

    "I've got a feeling that the same people who tried that are the same people who were there the other day," Robertson said, noting that it was a gun safe that took about four people to carry.

    Thank you SO MUCH for this update!! This poor couple!! :-(

    I hope that they find out who murdered them soon. One thing that I don't understand from the article that I posted is that at the bottom of the article it stated that the community need not be in fear.

    If I lived close by I think that I'd definitely be in fear...

    If it was the same people who tried to rob them before then I guess they are figuring it's an isolated incident?

    Heavy safe, 4 people to carry it... An elderly couple in their 80's... Flippin cowards...

    I bet it's a younger relative of some sort who thinks or knows they had something valuable in the house...

    I absolutely agree with you that it could be someone who knew them!

    I think it's how the statement is worded. It's like since nothing has happened since 2003, don't worry folks!

    So it was a neighbor. It kind of sounded like it had to be somebody they knew.

    He could have waited an hour or so and robbed the home and not killed the victims because they were leaving town.

    What a senseless crime!:(
