    Former United Airlines "truther" pilot kills his children and himself.

    SAN ANDREAS, Calif., Feb. 4 (UPI) -- An author and former airline pilot shot his two teenage children to death before killing himself at their upscale California home, authorities said.
    Neighbor Merita Callaway said friends of the children found the body of Phillip Marshall, 54, when they went to the family's Murphrys-area home Saturday to check on Alex and Macaila Marshall after not having heard from the teens for several days, The (Stockton) Record reported.
    The Calaveras County Sheriff's Office said Alex, 17, and Macaila, 14, were also found dead in the home. Each had been shot once in the head with a handgun, as was the family's dog, the newspaper said.


    The motive for the shootings had not been determined.


    Sean Marshall, the estranged wife of Phillip Marshall and mother of the children, was returning from Turkey, where she had been traveling at the time of the shootings, The Record said.
    The children were students at Bret Harte Union High School in Angels Camp.

    The newspaper said Phillip Marshall, a former pilot for Eastern Airlines and United, was an author whose published works included the 2003 novel "Lakefront Airport" and "The Big Bamboozle: 9/11 and the War on Terror," a 2012 book in which he theorized it wasn't al-Qaida but U.S. and Saudi government officials who orchestrated the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks on the United States.

    Do you think there's a connection? I guess there is, he's mental as batshit to believe in the 9/11 conspiracy crap, I won't dignify it with the phrase 'truther' and mental people kills others and themselves.

    And since an "assault weapon" wasn't used, the availabilty of a firearm to a mentaly unstable individual wouldn't make much media hay would it!

    Truther should clearly be aligned with "alternative theories. Not wackos.

    How many times have we seen this. Unstable person deciding to off themselves, taking innocent loved ones with them.

    How was anyone to know that this man is mentally unstable before he killed his family? What kind of system should be in place to detect this kind of mental instability in your average Joe with a gun in his home? Is the fact that he is a 9/11 "truther" enough to qualify him as being unstable, therefore unqualified for gun ownership? Is being paranoid about the government enough?

    ^ True. It could be the illuminati lizard men. David Duchovny is investigating, I believe.

    It's not a knock-down proof but it's pretty damning.
