    I've been following this story closely. This is terrible. Rumors are flying...if you check out the facebook page of the news organization I posted this story from, there are some interesting comments (although it may not be worth slogging through the inane/off-topic/ignorant comments). It's all so sad and horrific, but one of the worst things is, according to Tollefsbol's facebook page, she was just recently married. And, there are now six children without a mother. So sad.

    Is that bandage on his neck a clue to his non-life-threatening suicide attempt injury?

    Here he is in the video with the reporter doing the ice bucket challenge. The article below the video also quotes him.

    I apologize for the multiple postings. As you can see, I'm new and don't know what I'm doing... just searching for news and posting what I find as I find it.

    You're doing great, Aunty!

    This whole thing is just totally incomprehensible to me. The gun was pointed in the wrong direction, is about all I can safely say at this point.

    Thanks Granny!

    This is a very puzzling, disturbing, senseless crime. (But, I feel that way about all the crimes I read about here at websleuths.)

    This case is so sad and baffling to me. I just can't wrap my head around it. Why kill your wife, the mother of your children? He doesn't have long and knew this would basically leave them orphans. And if there was something in their relationship that no one else saw, why kill the sister too? And then to have the sisters' grandmother die the same day. So tragic for this family.

    Here is video of Steele actually getting ice water poured on him. Really I'm surprised because I don't think that is something an ALS patient should do. I wonder if he really had ALS. Maybe he killed his wife and her sister after they found out that he really didn't have the disease. His wife had raised $70,000 for his support. He could have just retired and told people he had the disease, it's not the first time people faked terminal illness.

    I thought maybe Kacee the sister-in-law showed up after he killed his wife Ashlee, but wasn't an intended target--wrong place/wrong time for poor Kacee. This might explain why he didn't shoot her in the head nor use zip ties nor even make sure she was dead. Just a theory, JMO.

    Kacee lived long enough to call police who arrived before he could complete his complicated suicide... death by dryer vent and hot coals = Carbon Monoxide poisoning? Just guessing, JMHO.

    I wondered this as well, but if it was a scam he had to know he couldn't keep it from his wife forever. Unless she was in on it and wanted to come clean. I don't know. In most cases I can at least see where the perp was coming from, but not this one.

    http://host.madison.com/wsj/news/local/crime_and_courts/fitchburg-double-homicide-overwhelming-tragedy-for-so-many-sheriff-says/article_bcafef9b-6b56-5d07-a8e2-e3927d779201.html


    I've been puzzling over the timeline ever since I read the above comment from Fitchburg Police Lt. Todd Stetzer about the murders happening in a "different time period" from the time of the defendant's injury. Based on the criminal complaint linked below, I've got the following timeline for Aug. 22, 2014:

    8:35 a.m. - Ashlee sends an email to her sister-in-law

    9:22 a.m. - Defendant purchases charcoal and lighter fluid at PDQ store

    9:45 a.m. - Ashlee's SIL receives a voice mail message from Ashlee at approximately 9:45 a.m.

    10:14 a.m. - Ashlee's SIL returns Ashlee's call, but Ashlee doesn't answer

    10:25 a.m. - Ashlee's SIL again tries to reach Ashlee by phone, but Ashlee still doesn't answer

    12:55 p.m. - officers are dispatched to the residence

    2:21 p.m. - TRT enters the home and discovers the defendant in the laundry room (presumably shortly after 2:21 p.m.)



    So... Ashlee was alive and leaving a voice mail message around 9:45 am... and possibly? was dead by 10:14 when she missed the first phone call from her SIL. Nearly 2 1/2 hours later, the sister, Kaycee calls for help and officers are dispatched at 12:55 p.m.

    The scenario I'd imagined involved Kaycee arriving sometime after Ashlee was killed and being able to call 911 soon after being shot herself. But... If that's correct, then Kaycee was apparently mistaken about hearing another gun shot, since only two rounds were fired?

    http://www.channel3000.com/news/court-doc-details-police-response-to-fitchburg-double-homicide/27722938


    So, maybe Kaycee was shot first? Then Ashlee was shot? Then several hours go by before the 911 call. Perhaps Kaycee struggled for hours to reach her phone?

    I realize this is not a whodunit, but does anybody want to speculate with me?

    I wonder about the timeline too because Ashlee was found with a "sleep mask" over her head. Was this an apnea mask or was it a blindfold keep out the light mask? Either she went back to bed or had been still sleeping when shot. Or possibly had a headache and put the keep out the light type mask on.

    "The report states Ashlee Steele, 39, had a sleep mask over her head"
