Excellent. Do you know if Kansas has the death penalty?
Computer equipment? So he was online. Interesting.
All over the news here in Wichita....
I call this guy a suspect.
Ann Coulter is a person of interest.
The death penalty was recently set aside in the state, so it's doubtful that he will get lethal injection.

This thread is loaded with great links to all information.
Congressman Tiahart, the Mayor, victims families, all the civic officals will be there..this is a victory lap
Have they released a name yet? Obviously some people in Wichita know his name, since they were interviewed as his neighbors.
He was a regular on DU
The death penalty is still here. It was only temporarily suspended for a few days for some reason.
Right, but wasn't there some kind caveat given to the Carr Brothers....something like, "OK, there's no more more death penalty, but we made an exception in your case."
I think 4 people are still gonna' get the needle...
Start at the end and go up..all info on the suspect on this thread.
It's Eshqire (how did that troll spell his posting name... or maybe Ash?)
Im surprised the Carr brothers are still around, they must be in the 'celebrity solitude' wing of Leavenworth.
There's even more on down the thread...larger picture near the end..I feel very sorry for his family..We think we can't be fooled..but we can.I went to the crime library site and read about the first multiple murder..Horrific.
