Long Island Murder Suicide

Long Island Murder Suicide No one seems to know what happened the night John D. shot his wife and then himself but several people that stopped by while we were cleaning made comments about how they knew something was wrong but never knew it was this bad. Apparently John D. was a schizophrenic and had been in and out of the hospital for the past couple of years. Of course this would make for a difficult circumstance for his wife and anyone else that had a relationship with him. Of course people speculate on situations like this one and offer up their opinions whether anyone asks for it or not. Its really a sad story when you think what might have been.

This explosion was horrible and the stench was so strong it about knocked me over. The man had been lying in it for a few days so the odors were overwhelming. Of all the ways a person could die I think this is not only gross it is sort of humiliating. I have read of people being so full of gas that when they were cut open in the operating room the gas was flammable and caused fire in the operating…
