An Absolute Tradegy

This morning, a fifth child died, the latest victim of the school shootings at West Nickel Mines Amish School in Bart Township. The 13-year-old girl succumbed in the dawn hours at Christiana Hospital in Delaware. Police are right now holding a news conference.

The following is from the Pennsylvania State Police news conference on Tuesday:

Police said the suspect left a note indicating he had molested some minor family members. Police believe the minors were between 3-5 years old. It's unknown exactly what happened, and investigators have not been able to confirm that something actually occurred.

Police said Roberts mentioned in his suicide not that he was having dreams of molesting again. Investigators are trying to track down as many of Roberts' family members as they can in order to check the molestation claims he made. Family members have told police there was nothing odd in his behavior in the days leading up to the attack.

Police said the note he left for his wife talked about the loss of a daughter, his hatred toward himself and God because of the daughter's death, and alludes to the other event.

Roberts wife didn't know what he was mentioning in the note. It wasn't until she spoke with him on his cell phone while inside the school that she learned about the molestations he claims to have done 20 years ago. Read more here.

This is just very sick. This will make a very big impact on the Amish community because no matter how much they try, the real world is closing in.

Prayers for all their children.
