  • Follow Latest News

MARIETTA, Ga. – Cobb County police have detained two suspects in a crime spree that included two killings and a car chase that ended with a suicide.

Police spokesman Sgt. Dana Pierce says the suspects in a quadruple shooting that killed one in an Austell home invasion Friday also are thought to be involved in the death of a woman found in a burning car an hour later.

A man and a woman were detained at the end of an 80 mph chase Friday night that ended on Six Flags Parkway moments after a second man in the car shot himself.

Those two are being questioned about the home invasion and the dead woman found in the burning car. Pierce says they have not been charged, so their names are not released.

Police are looking for at least two other suspects in the case.

The very reason I keep my .357 handy at home. I live in a quiet neighborhood but you never know when these kinds of creeps will come in any how.

a lot of folks are influenced

a lot of folks are influenced by demonic forces brought in through hate and anger. A Godless entertainment media feeds the anger, violence etc. These actions are not surprising at all. There is a reason the Bible says to guard what we see and hear.
Even the food additives and the methods of killing the meat we eat adds to the violence. In many cases you can't deter crime so you just have to dry up the source and the .357 can do that.
If everyone had a father in the home during their entire childhood the crime numbers would drop like a rock and many prisons would be empty. In some groups of people there is very little love for each other and those groups are working hard to kill themselves off and that can help the problem.
