    This is what they were referring to.

    They just found another body, believed to be the sister. Several news reports this morning mentioned how he loved his mother, who just passed away in October, and despised his sister.

    The other thing I saw in a news article today was that when the gunman's mother passed away in October, her obituary asked that donations in her memory be sent to the West Webster Fire Department- the same one that sent the firemen he shot.

    Shaking my head.

    A procession of emergency vehicles and fire equipment just drove past my house, all lights flashing but no sirens. I learned on facebook that they were escorting the body of Tomasz Kaczowka through his neighborhood and past the West Webster Firehouse #1.

    On the six o'clock it was mentioned that they found another body in the house.

    Not confirmed to be the sister yet.

    Today's newspaper (AP article) said that his sister was found dead in the house, and the gun he used was the oh-so-popular Bushmaster .223.

    I just saw on the news that they are expecting up to 45,000 people from across the country to attend the memorial services this weekend for the two firemen who died.

    They also arrested the gunman's neighbor for buying the guns for him. How stupid does someone need to be to buy guns for a convicted murderer??

    I don't understand how the neighbor could have done something so stupid, either. I will bet, however, that she isn't alone in doing this for some other "friend" who cannot legally get a weapon. Sickening.

    Many of the hotels in the area have free rooms available for all of the emergency personnel who are attending the calling hours and memorial services for the two who died. People and businesses have prepaid the rooms, and many of the hotels are offering them at a lower than normal rate, besides.

    I saw that on the news as well. Nice to know there are still some decent people and businesses out there.
