triggering event

no doubt all pressure played a part. however, has it come out what happened that week/day for him to go over the edge and do what he did? looking at all the factors might help in heading off others in the future.

root causes

the attorney is to be thanked for sharing more of the story with the public. first glance would appear to be a domestic violence situation gone bad, but this one is much deeper than that. it's about a family trying to work, survive, raise children. despite their best efforts, obstacles were put in their way that made things unnecessarily harder on the family. jobs are hard to find. self employment as they had is also difficult. a local leader with domestic violence shelter (M.Holland) made a comment couple years ago that the economic pressures, jobs, etc were going to put more pressures on family situations and could lead to more tragic family situations...she was right. any day of the week newspapers in north Carolina and around the country have domestic violence stories. would it help if north Carolina committed more funding/programs to mental health counseling and more funding for family/domestic violence support systems? probably so. definitely so. many thanks to the attorney for sharing more of the story and deep regrets for the family and others affected.
