Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS.

Haynie Family mass murder: Four members of the family, including 3 children died, father wounded but released from the hospital; Suspect, Colin Jeffery “CJ” Haynie, has been charged as an adult with 4 counts of capital murder – faces LWOP

This tragedy has really affected me. Grantsville is usually this quiet little town that you rarely hear anything about it. I know that last year one of the little girls from Grantsville was on Food Network’s Kid Baking Championship. Of course I wanted Sophie to win, but she did not. She did come close and she was great! Anyway, when I heard this happened, I had to find out what happened. Today, the information about Colin Jeffrey Haynie’s charges went public and it actually shocked me. He is charged with shooting his mother and 3 siblings. However, apparently it was not all at once. He waited for each person to come home and he shot them when they came home. His mother and sister were shot multiple times in the head, neck and chest. They specifically said he did NOT just snap. He obviously planned this. How much hate and anger can a 16-year-old teenager have to plan to kill almost his entire family. He did fight with his father, who tried to get the gun from him and thankfully he survived. His oldest brother lived in a different city attending college. Now, the dad, Colin, and brother, Danny, now have to deal with all of this themselves. In one swoop, no wife and 3 less children and it was not an accident. They will have to navigate through the criminal justice system, which is not easy for anyone. My heart really goes out to them. The funerals will be Friday and I know they have community support, which is so important. This community raised over $85,000 within like 1-2 days. That will really help with the funerals, medical bills, and money to live on while Colin recovers. I really do wish that Colin Jr. would say why, but I have a feeling it may never happen.

Murder In The Family: Travis John Wolfkill stabbed his grandmother, Shirley Wilson, to death; Sentenced to life in prison

The record includes evidence of the following: Sometime on the night of March 1, 2002, Shirley Wilson was stabbed to death in her home in Des Moines, which she shared with her grandson, Wolfkill. At trial, Chris McAdam testified Wolfkill had told him earlier on the day of Wilson’s death, “I hate my grandma. I wish she was dead.” In addition, Jeremy Chirch testified Wolfkill had told him earlier on the evening of Wilson’s death that he was going to
kill a family member. Wolfkill admitted to being in the house at about the time Wilson was killed. Wilson’s DNA was found on Wolfkill’s leg. The crime scene indicated Wilson had struggled with her killer; and a day after the murder,
Wolfkill’s body displayed marks consistent with having been in a fight. Finally, Wolfkill’s shirt, which had Wilson’s DNA on it, was found in Wolfkill’s bedroom. We reach the same conclusion here as we did on direct appeal.
