    My cousin was just killed by his SIL

    My cousin was shot and killed by his SIL in their home, and then the SIL was shot by police outside the home. Apparently the SIL was wearing bpdy armor when the police got there. Sounds like my cousins daughter and husband (the SIL) were some type of survivalists? They had been in Iowa stockpiling things before they moved back to Denver.

    I didnt see my cousin much, we didnt have a lot in common, but he was a super nice guy. I saw him and his wife over the last year, she looked pretty beat up by multiple cancers over the years. I cant imagine how they are doing. The names were just released and our last name is VERY uncommon, i dont know if we will hear anything but i told my department in case.

    Zoe Girl,

    I am so sorry. Be sure to take some time for yourself when you need it. Grief hits everyone differently and at different times, and you are not superwoman.

    Wow! My condolences...

    That's terrible, Zoe Girl. There's just too many people out there who think they can solve their issues with a gun. I'm sorry your family is having to experience this pain.

    ZoeGirl, I am so sorry. I,too, would suggest extra care for yourself. Shock can make you feel able to deal, then it all tumbles down.
