When a person does something soooooo desperate as that...I begin to look at the person. And maybe he, the father, SAW himself in the son. And maybe.....no body CAUGHT him, the father, and felt the need to destruct the SEED he created. Cuz this DOES NOT make ANY sense. You get your children HELP. You don't kill them. I remember years ago...during the MacMartin case, they didn't have services to help with child molestation[sp]. Now they do. So what was REALLY his motivation? Sumthing's wrong. It just DON'T sound right. He, the father, is HIDING sumthing. That would have probably come out during therapy. This is my spin anyway. Could be wrong. But....working with children....I know sometimes this could be a learned behavior. Either the son was molested himself....or witnessed someone being molested. The father's behavior indicates to ME that he wanted to make sure that whatever caused his son to do this....didn't get out in public. But! JMHO is all.
