  1. I feel so sorry for Maggie and Paul, what happened to them is deeply distressing.
    But this murder case has to be the most interesting in US history since OJ’s farce of a trial.

    1. i know man that is crazy, this man literally shot his sons head off, even though the first shot likely killed him, with a shotgun. That is just crazy
