Friends React to Murdered Family


By Rochelle Dean


There are still a lot of unanswered questions surrounding the deaths of a family of four found shot to death inside their Irmo home.

Authorities confirming each of the victims, a woman, man and their two small children all shot in the upper body. The remains discovered by one of the victims mother's who deputies say came to the house to check on the family.

According to family friends, the family had just returned home from a vacation to Florida. Those who worked close to one of the victims barber shop say the story doesn't make sense.

" they were a close knit family. I never saw them argue, I never saw anything like that. This hurts my heart to see and hear this because if there was something going he never revealed it."

While friends and neighbors who spoke with ABC Columbia News say they never saw anything suspicious between the couple or at the their Forest Walk Court home, Deputies say there was a domestic dispute at the home prior to the shooting. Who was involved we still do not know.

An autopsy is slated for Thursday.

hootie said on Thursday, Jan 16 at 6:48 AM of the victims mother's???? Try 'one of the victim's mother'...Absolutely ridiculous that NO ONE noticed or observe anything other than a family returning from a vacation to Florida....Why don't the neighbors remain silent???? Readers do NOT care WHAT THE NEIGHBORS THINK!!!!! Let all of us wait for the pathologist's autopsy report....Of note - the coroner does not PERFORM the autopsy...he is a layman - NOT a medical doctor!

Inappropriate? Alert Us!
