A "house of doom?" Or perhaps a "doom house?"

berylman: It's not a fun exercise to imagine the logic of a murderer but I must admit a little curiosity as to why he spared his infant daughter and killed his 3 and 6 year old sons. Already corrupted by the world at a young age? Sexism? Who knows its farked up.


That is an easy one. The 3 & 6 year old could have identified his corpse as the killer. He killed them so he wouldn't get caught.

My guess would be that he didn't want the older children being adopted out, because older children, especially boys, are notoriously hard to find adoptive parents for. A baby girl will have an adoptive family before nightfall, if the bureaucracy can move that fast.

I don't think auto accidents should count since they did not happen in the house.

I'm assuming the infant daughter was given up before the murders. The wife calls him out for his failure as a provider, maybe even claiming the baby wasn't his.

Pride is dangerous on its own, mix it with objective failure and it becomes deadly.

cgraves67: Damn. I hope that little girl never finds out about her real parents.


Too bad we live in an Internet age where she'll probably stumble across it on Google while trying to find out what Facebook knows about her.

KrispyKritter: AirForceVet: FTA: Summer 2012 and Berlin police were called to the building's maisonette apartment, where they found the bodies of 69-year-old Kristian B., his wife Kathrin, 28, and their two sons aged six and three.

The debt-riddled asset consultant had suffocated them all before killing himself with a plastic bag. He had previously given up his infant daughter into a baby hatch.

 I hate stories like this where the husband goes off, kills his wife and kids, then commits suicide. Just kill yourself if you must but don't take anyone else with you.

I love stories where older men have hot young wives and started a new family. Gives me hope I'll get lucky, though unlikely in Huntsville, Alabama.

Older men with hot young wives are usually total scumbags. I personally know of too many cases where fellows left a wife with multiple children, just pretended they didn't exist, and left them to suffer in poverty. Some years ago this also carried a brutal social stygmata and there wasn't the social policies in place back then to provide support money for these families. Meanwhile that same thoughtless cocksmith who thinks nothing of walking away from his primary responsibility is probably not the kind of thoughtful guy who will make sure Insurance benefits will be in place when he keels over and his second or third wife is left with a few children or teens to feed. Many a fellow has a lady friend on the side as a quiet, discreet arrangement and the family doesn't suffer for it, they may even benefit as she helps him to stay in good cheer. But a fellow who is going to recite wedding vows, populate the Earth and then behave as if he's a young footloose bachelor is nothing shy of a self-involved bastard. You're better than to admire the likes of that.


And not a word about the scummy gold-digger he leaves his family for, other than sympathy for her when he leaves her nothing.

I don't think this ever actually happens outside of comic books and daytime television dramas. When you talk to real people about it, it's generally that he treats the family like complete shiat and then cries like a biatch when his wife finds out and crucifies him for alimony and child support.

9 people in 15 years? Uh, what's the normal death rate of any apartment complex?

If they think that's bad I can show them a few places where at least 9 people die per month.

GBB: Baby hatch? That's a thing?


It is, and it's not even a new thing. In Florence in the middle ages, one of the convents had a hatch which was manned event night by a nun to assure that the babies dropped off were healthy and safe.

Nice to see that German newspapers are able to come up with a feel good story such as this every once and a while.
