Man apparently stabs wife, kid, self to death
Rochester Democrat and Chronicle |
"Steven L. Ryder, 46, stabbed his wife Louise Ryder, 42, and his 12-year-old daughter Theresa to death during a dispute over his wife's request for a ride to work... According to police, one of the couple's four children ran to a neighbor's house and said that their father had stabbed his mother... The Monroe County SWAT team apparently entered the house an hour or so after their arrival and found Steven Ryder dead, with what appeared to be self-inflicted knife wounds... Police said they also found two weapons - a shotgun and a rifle, both of which were unloaded and had not been fired; and marijuana plants growing in a room in the basement." [Well obviously, it was the pot.]
