      We don't know anything.  We don't know what happened, we don't know why it happened. And we probably never will.

      This could have been a classical murder-suicide. Or a  suicide because of a murder.

      It could have been manslaughter, even not culpable homicide (for,  among other things, reasons of insanity).

      There is a reason society say "de mortibus nil nisi bonum".

      We don't know. For a reason we don't understand a woman was killed and a man killed himself, both of which are tragic losses in itself.

      I commend the diarist for emphasizing what needed to be emphasized.  But these outbreaks of hate in the comments are undignified, careless and unkind.

          •  let me explain why not: (0+ / 0-)

            you came out of leftfield unbidden and called me and/or my posted opinion "hate", and furthermore:

            undignified, careless and unkind.
            express your opinion and defend murderers if you must, but rein in your attacks...don't be a disrespectful jerk next time

        that the guy killed his girlfriend and then he killed himself.

        In front of witnesses.

        There is no qualifying murder-suicide.  It is what it is.

        We don't know what happened?  WtF?  Of course we know what happened.  A male sports figure shot a young woman to death.  They had a child together and he put 9 bullets into her in her own home in front of family members.  

        You're going to claim we don't know what happened?    You're going to seriously claim that when a football player shoots an unarmed woman 9 times , it "might not be culpable homicide"?.  

        Your characterization comes off as the worst type of willful ignorance.  Principled people and civilized societies condemn murderers in the strongest terms; pity that you appear to lack the ability to do so.

          Yes, I would.

          Presumption of innocence.

            That a legal guideline for a court of law.  

            It has nothing to do with private citizens making reasoned judgements based on the evidence. And the evidence is crystal clear.
