Do you have anymore excuses for fathers murdering their families, for the latest murder-suicides the last day in Florida in your bag of tricks?
Do you think the teenager that was running from his dad last night in Lakeland, Florida to avoid being shot to death like the rest of his family, was cursing his mom or the family court for so-called “gender bias?” I highly doubt it, but there is a definite bias against moms now, it is documented in all the studies now. Yes, our society is getting so much better for it.
Here are some more people you’ll see in hell:
(CNN) — A man shot and killed his wife and two of their children and then killed himself in central Florida on Sunday night, authorities said.
Troy Ryan Bellar shot and killed his wife, Wendy, and two of their children, sheriff’s officials say.
Troy Ryan Bellar, 34, used a high-powered rifle with a scope to shoot his 31-year-old wife, Wendy, when she tried to leave their home, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
Two of the couple’s children — 5-month-old Zack and 7-year-old Ryan — also were killed, but a 13-year-old got away, with the father chasing and firing after him, officials said.
“It is beyond my understanding why a man would shoot and kill his 5-month-old baby boy, his 7-year-old baby boy, try to kill his 13-year-old son, shoot his wife and then turn the gun on himself,” said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd. “There is no explanation for that.”
The shootings happened in Lakeland, Florida, just east of Tampa.
When the shooting began, the couple’s son, Nathan, ran out of the house and down the street — with his dad chasing him through the garage and firing several shots, authorities said.
Nathan was unhurt and will be placed with family members.
Investigators do not know what led to the shooting, but believe it was preceded by “some kind of domestic disturbance,” a statement from the sheriff’s office said.
Bellar was arrested twice in Polk County: for aggravated assault in 1994, and for driving under the influence in 1999.
His wife was arrested in March for battery domestic violence. (Was she protecting herself?)
Here’s another one you’ll see in Hell (thankfully the child was not there to be murdered too):
Terry Wayne Scott
Divorce filing and arrest come before Dade City couple’s murder-suicide
DADE CITY — In a matter of days, things seemed to go from bad to worse for Terry Wayne Scott.
Scott spent four days in the Pasco County jail after an April 17 arrest on charges of grand theft. Two days after his release, Scott’s wife of 10 years filed for divorce.
At some point, apparently, it became too much to handle.
According to the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office, Scott, 59, fatally shot his wife, Veronica, and then killed himself Saturday at their Dade City home.
“There had been some animosity from him toward her because of the divorce,” said Kevin Doll, a spokesman with the Sheriff’s Office.
Detectives were still investigating the shooting deaths Sunday, looking for more clues into what might have led to the grisly scene they found at the couple’s mobile home at 14507 Mount Zion Road. The home sits on 2 acres of mostly sprawling pasture, far back from the road and down a long sandy drive, barely visible at night.
Deputies were sent to the home about 8 p.m. Saturday to check on the pair, Doll said. Veronica Scott, a registered nurse, had not shown up for work that day and a co-worker was concerned.
Earlier in the day, neighbors reported gunshots in the area but mostly thought nothing of it in such a rural area.
“We wouldn’t have had any reason to respond until we got the welfare check,” Doll said. “And these are big yards, multi-acre properties. … Gunshots probably aren’t all that uncommon out there.”
When deputies arrived at the home, they found the bodies of Veronica, 48, and Terry Scott in the garage.
Preliminary information indicates that Terry Scott first shot and killed his wife and then shot himself with a handgun. Doll wouldn’t comment on whether a suicide note had been left.
But according to public records, it’s clear Terry Scott had been having a rough couple of weeks.
Scott was arrested by the Zephyrhills Police Department on April 17 for grand theft. He was released from jail on April 20 after posting $2,500 bail.
A copy of the arrest report couldn’t immediately be obtained from the police, and Doll didn’t know details of the arrest.
Then on April 22, Veronica Scott filed for divorce. The Scotts, who were both previously divorced, lived at the Dade City home with her teenage son.
The teen was not home at the time of the shootings. Doll was not sure if Terry Scott was the father of the boy.
A day after the shootings, most neighbors still had not heard news of the grim discovery at the Scotts’ home. And mostly due to the secluded and sprawling nature of the rural area, few knew much about the couple and their son.
“We saw a bunch of cars coming in and out of that area last night,” said Ruth Blessing, who lives farther down the road on Mount Zion. “We had no clue. That’s awful news.”Technorati Tags: People,Hell,Jeffery,Florida,tricks,teenager,Lakeland,death,gender,bias,Here,Troy,Beller,wife,children,authorities,Ryan,Bellar,Wendy,scope,Polk,Sheriff,Office,statement,Zack,father,Grady,Judd,explanation,Tampa,Nathan,street,Investigators,disturbance,March,battery,violence,Terry,Wayne,Scott,Divorce,Dade,Joel,Anderson,Times,Staff,Writer,Print,Pasco,April,theft,Veronica,Kevin,Doll,spokesman,Mount,Zion,Road,pasture,Deputies,worker,Earlier,area,welfare,Gunshots,Preliminary,handgun,records,Zephyrhills,Police,Department,bail,Scotts,news,discovery,nature,Ruth,clue,fathers,members,deaths,clues,yards,himself,month,garage,suicide,neighbors,wouldn
