    Default CAN WE LEAVE THE KIDS OUT OF IT!? Suspect in four Alabama slayings found dead

    A man suspected in the shooting deaths of four people, including his estranged wife and daughter, in northwest Alabama was found dead in an apparent suicide, police said.

    Kevin Lee Garner was suspected of killing four people, including his estranged wife and daughter, police say.

    Kevin Lee Garner's body was found about 200 yards behind his home in Morgan County, Alabama, said Travis Clemmons, chief investigator for the sheriff's office in neighboring Lauderdale County. He was dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Clemmons said.

    Garner was a suspect in the deaths of Tammy Garner, 40, his estranged wife; Chelsea Garner, 16, his daughter; Karen Beaty, his sister; and his nephew, who Clemmons identified only as Robert, saying he did not know his last name.

    The four were found dead Tuesday morning in a home in Greenhill, Alabama.

    Clemmons said earlier that the home Garner lived in was burned, and that investigators were searching it.

    A car belonging to one of the four victims was found at Garner's home, he said.

    Garner and his wife had a hearing scheduled on Monday as part of divorce proceedings, police said. It had been postponed until Wednesday.

    Yep, it's crazy. We just had some woman over in the O-town area take her son to a gun range, sign a piece of paper that said she was mentally stable so she could rent a gun, and proceed to shoot her son and herself right there on the range. Yes, she was a former mental patient and had ongoing issues.

    Either way, it sure is being sensationalized a lot more now. Take that for what it's worth.

    why?

    do you think the media is working with obama to create an anti-gun sentiment in hopes of making it easier to pass gun control legislation?

    Unfortunately, even if it isn't part of some agenda, it has become all too sickening watching the news anymore. The term, "If it bleeds, it leads" is getting out of hand. Hell, I remember it having to be nearly a full scale riot in SoFla when I was young to get "Breaking News" status....these days, it can be that a dog attacked a cat and they'll have two news crews enroute and at least one news chopper in the air to cover it.

    I don't know if they're technically working together, but they do have a similar agenda.

    That's PART of the reason these things are becoming more prevalent......Why just kill yourself and get a small sentence in the back pages of the local paper, when you take a few innocents with you and get your name and your grievance plastered all over the national 24 hr' news cycle.

    Exactly! How many of these deals would have gotten this type of attention 30-35 years ago? My bet is very little in comparison to today, perhaps something in the Local section of the newspaper, but not the screen time these bastards are getting. If there isn't a concious effort on the "news" organizations to make sure to show every bloody thing they can on TV, I'll eat my VH collection.

    Want to bet on how much airtime Octomom would have gotten in 1978....I doubt it would make it much beyond a two sentence blurb on the news, and certainly not the attention that piece of crap was seeking.

    I'd love to know what Cronkite's thoughts are on how the "news" is covered these days.

    I couldn't disagree more.

    You think the media is hoping that these stories will go away? Whatever the political views of those in charge may be, the thing that drives these stories is ratings and profits. If there was peace and harmony in the universe, who would watch the news?

    Fox News is known for having a conservative bent and they cover these shootings as much as any other news oulet.

    Now this I agree with. Nobody would raise an eye at just suicide. Even murder/suicide between two people barely registers anymore. Take a bunch of other people out though and everybody will know about it.

    They say the guy in New York fired 98 shots in about one minute.
