....till it happens in your own neighborhood. these people lived on the same street as me, 6 houses away from ours. we didn't know them, but we are good friends with their next door neighbors (5 houses away). here is the news report from the local newspaper's website today: A Travelers Rest man killed his wife Monday night, took their 4-year-old son to daycare the next day and then returned home and killed himself in a murder-suicide, authorities said today. The son wasn’t harmed. Greenville County Deputy Coroner Kent Dill identified the victims as Dale Patrick Wetzelberger, 47, and his wife, Michele Marie Wetzelberger, 41. Michele Wetzelberger was a group exercise instructor at the George I. Theisen YMCA in Travelers Rest, according to a statement released by Zach Hall, the Y’s executive director. “Yesterday, we were shocked to learn of the death of Michele Wetzelberger,” the statement said. “Michele was a valued Y employee and a caring person. Our prayers go out to her family and friends. We will remember Michele fondly as she meant so much to so many. We will miss her very much.” Y officials had no other comment. Police discovered the couple’s bodies Tuesday after their 4-year-old son wasn’t picked up from a day-care facility at the Y, Dill said. Autopsies were conducted earlier today. Dill said investigators believe Michele Wetzelberger was shot three times between supper-time and bedtime Monday. The next morning, Dale Wetzelberger took their son to the Y, where his wife was scheduled to teach a class, Dill said. When she didn’t show up and no one came to pick up their son about lunchtime, the day-care staff became concerned and called police, Dill said. Travelers Rest Police Capt. John Gardner said the bodies were found in the Northcliff Way home about 1:30 p.m. He said the child was in the custody of the state Department of Social Services. very disturbing. how messed up must someone be can be to carry out such an act? when it says "the son was not harmed"...maybe not physically, but imagine growing up knowing that your dad did that.
