HOTC Tragedy

I get this from our Airstream Group President just a few minutes ago.....I am speechless.....but armed.
:"I am shocked and saddened to have to report to the club that members of our HOTC family have been murdered over the weekend.

Cindy Johnson is alive and reportedly managed to escape with minor injuries and call 911, but her husband Carl, their daughter Hannah, Hannah's son Kade and her boyfriend and 2 unnamed children were all murdered, apparently by a man the Anderson County Sheriff has in custody. They were camping on property recently purchased by Hannah and her boyfriend near Palestine, TX and the suspect owns an adjacent property.

I cannot imagine how devastated Cindy must be. One news report I found from their old hometown in Maine said that her son is traveling here from Maine to be with her. I have no other information besides what is contained in the article below.

Palestine killing: William Hudson under arrest"

Perhaps this article today may change a few opinions. Would the outcome have been different if the campers could have defended themselves? My prayers go out to the victims and their families.

I had just read about this on a news page.

How awful.

I'm going to keep my mouth shut other than to say with utmost sincerity...

May they rest in peace.

Not so cheers

In an effort to to steer this incident away from the recent "Guns on the road" thread and offer some degree of respect to the victims and those here that knew/know them, we moved posts related to this event here.

Our thoughts and prayers are for all who are affected by violence no matter the origin.

We will remove any material not condolence related from this thread.

Respectfully,

The Site Team

Terrible news. Sickening. Just like the others above, I'm lost for words.

May the victims be resting in peace and their souls dancing together on the other side.

No words

I remember admiring how close they were as a family with parents, daughter and grandson coming to our campouts. They always had a smile for everyone and will be sorely missed from our group.

That many here personally knew these victims makes it all the more horrible.

It just makes me sick.
