    Just like the #DCMansion murders, I can't fathom how one person could do this! Does anyone else know how such a thing could be accomplished?

    Oh my gosh, the horror of this is just overwhelming.

    Two sets of tire tracks? Did CM drive both cars simultaneously?

    I don't understand the brutality of this crime. Have mercy on them and use a gun. OMG, this is horrific.

    This is beyond comprehension. How could anyone beat a little kid in the head with a sledge hammer? Totally sick and disgusting.

    I couldn't even handle taking my old cat to the vet to be put down, let alone something like THIS!

    I'm waiting for that too. IMO, if Chase had an accomplice he'd be singing like a stool pigeon. I can't think of a reason he wouldn't.

    I don't like Kavanaugh and Mike's behaviors after the McStays went missing.

    I hate trial by tweet.

    So far I haven't heard anything tying CM to the crime. I've heard evidence that appears to indicate two people attacked the family. Nothing to indicate one was CM. JMO
