    The victims were my stepdad-in-law's sister and brother-in-law. We've been wracking our brains since yesterday afternoon, but we can't think of any reason that someone might have to want to hurt them.

    Unofficially: yes, the injuries were from the explosion. 50% of total body surface area is badly burned, including the face. My stepdad-in-law is an emergency room doctor, and last I heard he's en route to Nashville now to help his niece and nephew with power of attorney and executor stuff. They can't make any funeral arrangements yet, since the deceased is currently evidence.

    Good to hear. All sorts of nefarious things were running through my mind with that poorly chosen part of the article. Not that all sorts of other nefarious reasons aren't in there too...

    Finally, it's been confirmed that John Setzer died at the scene from injuries sustained in the explosion, and his wife, Marian Setzer, is in critical condition at Vanderbilt University Hospital.

    This is the first confirmation we've had by officials that the victims are, in fact, distant relations-by-marriage of my husband's.

    My stepdad-in-law is about ten years younger than his sister, who is 72, and they were never very close. My husband hasn't seen the Setzers in about 20 years, and we know very little about them.

    Conflicting information is trickling down different branches of the family grapevine: some say he was a retired lawyer (specialty unclear at this point), others say he worked for Merrill Lynch before retiring nearly a decade ago.

    I hope they find out what happened soon. Even though you weren't close I'm sure you'll still want closure.

    Clarification achieved! He was a lawyer many years ago, although never a criminal lawyer. He quit something like 25+ years ago to become a minister.

    So, still no reason to blow him up.

    At-the-hospital UPDATE: Doctors are giving her a 5% chance of surviving the night, and statistics show that there's an 85% chance that someone with burns like hers will not leave the hospital alive. I know more, but I want to leave the immediate family some privacy. Suffice it to say that she's in extremely critical condition, and her family is in shock.

    Not to disparage anyone, but might a child or family member wanted them dead for their money? It always amazes me when I hear of people trying this and expecting to get away with it.

    I'm sorry, @Azryhael, I really hope that they figure out who did this, hopefully not children or other relatives. :(

    Well SHIT! I don't know what else to say. Maybe over money? If you want to off someone a gun or knife or baseball bat are the usual weapons. But this guy just blew up the whole house; I'm guessing he wanted to make damn sure they would be dead. Scum sucking turd. I'm guessing there is money involved, or maybe a bitter, long drawn out feud. But shit! Blow up a whole house? They could have had company over, and the anal drip was willing to blow up everybody in there. Sure caught him fast...

    And since the murdering arsehole lived on the same property, any of his four children could have dropped by Grandma and Grandpa's house after school and been hurt or killed.

    I'm so angry that he was someone so close to them.

    His name is Richard Parker, and I know he'll burn in hell, if there is one. I'm guessing it was a money thing, myself, but we'll have to wait for additional information.

    Either he didn't give a shit about his kids or he knew where they were when he made sure in his chicken shit way that their grandma and granddad made an early entrance to heaven. I am so sorry for his actions, hopefully his wife wasn't involved in this too.

    From what we've heard, his wife, Laura, is devastated by the news that her husband is responsible for murdering her parents. I honestly believe, at this point, that she knew nothing of Richard's plan.

    @Azryhael . What in the world and all that's in it, would this person want to kill his in laws? Inheritance, debt? My heart just goes out to his wife, their daughter. To all of you.

    The only thing I can think of might be money. I mean, they were 74 and 72, if he could have waited 10-15 years they'd have died on their own, but I guess he thought he needed their money now for some reason.

    I've often heard for older people checking the mail can sometimes be the high point of their day lol. So I wonder if the son in law knew when the mail came and put the package in the mailbox around the time the mail would come so they would collect it all at once. Or did he put it out there and they went out and got it thinking it was a UPS delivery or something.
    Either way this guy is a douchebag and it is so crazy he thought he could get away with this. Ted Kaczynski is a genius but even he got caught.
