Tonya Thomas, 33, fatally shot her four children, who ranged in age from 12 to 17, said Lt. Tod Goodyear, a spokesman for the Brevard County Sheriff's Office.Of particular interest for this blog is that this lady was a church going lady (but unlike the late Melody Bodine, she didn't attend First Baptist Church of Prescott) and apparently lied to the cops about her husband.
Two years earlier, she filed a domestic violence complaint against [her husband] Joe Johnson, but that was dismissed after a hearing.Crazy women do that. (Lie a lot.)
She had also struck her husband.
Records also showed that Thomas was arrested in 2002 on a misdemeanor battery charge for striking the father of her children.We've heard this happens. A lot.
The charges were later dropped, which, based on what we've learned from other men whose crazy wives have also struck them, probably means she really did hit him but her loving husband forgave her. (Hey, even Tiger Woods didn't bring charges against his wife for beating him up.)
Well, the moral of this story is that you can never tell what this righteous, lying, church-going women are going to do. This one murdered her teenage kids. So not even they were safe. About all you can do it look for parallels in behavior. And when the shoe fits, RUN!
