    Obviously this was a murder/suicide and the family just doesn’t want it to be reported in such blunt terms. Some people are intelligent enough to figure that out, but for those who aren’t – here you go…

      Also, I’m not insinuating that they weren’t in on it together. I’m sure it was more of a suicide/suicide than a domestic violence type situation. They just decided it was their time to go, most likely – and they didn’t want to do it at home. Of course I’m just hypothesizing, but it’s the only thing that makes sense with the news story…

        Reporters don’t ask other people how things should be reported in their newspaper. Just FYI. I worked for several papers over many years.

    What are Colorado Springs Police covering up here? Two people murdered, and all the CS police say is, “Nothing to see here; move along”? No suspects being sought even? This reeks of corruption. Has it become legal to murder white people in Colorado Springs?
