I do not believe that this man hammer to death his wife, there’s more to this story has not been told and over the years until now 2017 there may be a possible conclusion. There have been several victims of crime in relationship to the children of this family I have been a victim. Different PD jurisdictions have covered up and protected the Beaverton police department of being in being embarrassed at their actions and rallying around the children of this family. I suspect the death of this woman was actually done by one of the children. I believe they should be re-investigate As those victims of crime Deserve justice and those victims have been ignored and laughed at By their local PD

Don't forget axe's...very dangerous. They obviously have no place in a peaceful non-violent society.

Come on dude, then you might as well ban every knife, screwdriver or anything you can use as a weapon. How about living in reality.

We must ban hammers. Or at least have severe regulation and background tests.
