I'm A Bit Down Right Now Found out some horrible, sad news

I'm just so heartbroken for him.
I talked to him a little while ago.
He is staying at our Sunday School teacher and wife's house tonight.
He, understandably, didn't want to be alone.
I didnt' ask him any questions/details...he did make a comment that he still
doesn't know details. I guess it's still under investigation.

I pray the hand of God will be guiding and holding him, you, and the police who will be trying to put together what happened.

The county paper's website is reporting that the son has been charged and being held. He is 18 and has been going to a college just far enough away to stay there (at the college.) They are still investigating and the autopsy reports are not in. But it appears that cause of death is blunt force trauma.
I cried a little this evening. I can't imagine my emotions if I discovered my brother and his wife dead from such a horrible, horrible way and by a family member.
Thanks for "listening."

It will be this Wednesday.
I still feel so heavy-hearted for him. I googled their names and saw quite a few news articles across the country about them. It's Darryl and Cherri Spearman if you want to know who I'm talking about. I don't know if the son is admitting to anything or not.
I met Darryl's sister and her husband yesterday, as well as Cherri's best friend and her family.
When our Sunday School teacher said we were going to take some time for prayer for James (yesterday)...and that he encouraged us to say a prayer (out loud) during that time...I think it was the most prayers I've heard from my class members ever.
Thanks for "listening" again.

I'm about to go to the "visitation" at the funeral home. No viewing for obvious reasons. The funeral is tomorrow.
My heart is still so saddened over this.
I called my brother yesterday just to make sure he knew how much I love him. I cannot imagine
walking in to find him and his wife the way James found his sister and brother-in-law.

I was holding up well enough. But Darryl's sister (and her daughter and granddaughter) were there from out of town. Seeing them quite emotional at times was so sad for me. I can't begin to grasp how deeply pained they, and my friend James, feel right now.
As he said to me, it's not over yet.
I'm hoping he spends some time with a church grief counselor. I know he's not sleeping well.
