Young girl wakes up to find her entire family murdered

The headline:  8-year-old in Ohio awakes to find four family members dead; authorities kill suspect in shootout

The summary:  An 8 year old Ohio girl woke up on Saturday morning to find that four family members she was living with were murdered overnight.  The primary suspect is dead after being involved in a shootout with police.

The reaction:  These stories never get any easier to read.

First of all, what possesses a person to kill virtually everyone in a house?  Second, how does this young girl rebuild a life that’s been broken into a thousand pieces without any of her family?

Sadly, we’ll never know the answer to the first as it seems the prime suspect is now dead.  Prayers go out to this poor girl.
