It was his daughter’s sweet sixteen party but Kelly Suckla couldn’t get over the fact that his wife Kristi had separated from him. He showed up at the party seeing to talk to Kristi but that conversation soon turned into an argument. The argument then lead to Kelly pulling a gun, shooting his estranged wife and then turning the gun upon himself.
I can’t count the amount of murder-suicides that occurred in the last year on my hands and toes combined. It’s amazing to me what stress (or hate) can lead men and women to. But I am left to reflect on what their daughter is left to think. She will always remember her sixteenth birthday as the day she lost her mother and father to a senseless act perpetrated by one against the other. This tragedy will sting for years to come for this young lady.
