Details of the Wash St family murders

it's a little long but quite detailed in what happened....if there is a hell, these mf'ers will be going there

SEATTLE - Judy Anderson was wrapping presents for her family on Christmas Eve when gunfire erupted in her living room and her own daughter began a bloodbath that left Anderson and five other members of her family dead, prosecutors said.

Anderson ran into the room and saw her daughter's boyfriend shoot her husband of 38 years, Wayne, prosecutors alleged as they filed aggravated first-degree murder charges Friday.

Judy Anderson started screaming and Joe McEnroe turned his gun on her. She fell to the floor, not yet dead. McEnroe apologized and shot her again, this time in the head, according to a police affidavit.

King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg said long-standing bitterness and a perceived family debt might have been factors in the shootings. But Satterberg said he was at a loss to assign a motive to the crime that police say McEnroe and Michele Anderson have admitted committing.

"In the end, what motive could you find that would make sense of the senseless slaying of the Anderson family?" Satterberg said.

Satterberg's account of the crime and a police affidavit portray a Christmas Eve that exploded in gunfire and bloodshed, leaving three generations of a family dead.

"In the span of one hour, the defendants had turned this family's Christmas Eve celebration into a scene of mass murder," Satterberg said as he charged Anderson and McEnroe with the only crime punishable by death in Washington.

Satterberg has 30 days to decide whether to seek the death penalty.

According to court documents, after killing her parents, Anderson and McEnroe, both 29, dragged the bodies to a shed outside the rural Carnation home and mopped up the blood with towels and carpets, according to court documents. They burned some of the evidence in a backyard fire pit, reloaded their weapons and waited for Michele's brother and his family to arrive.

When Scott Anderson, 32, walked in the door, he spotted his sister with a gun and charged her. Michele Anderson and McEnroe shot him multiple times. Michele then shot her sister-in-law, Erica, 32, who still managed to climb over a couch and call 911.

An operator at the 911 calling center picked up the call, but Erica did not speak before McEnroe tore the phone from her hands and destroyed it.

Huddling with her children, Erica Anderson pleaded with McEnroe not to shoot her, saying: "You don't have to do this."

McEnroe told her: "Yes, we do,'" and shot her in the head, according to the affidavit.

He then shot 6-year-old Olivia before turning to 3-year-old Nathan, who had picked up the batteries from the cordless phone his mother had used in her futile attempt to call for help.

"McEnroe told detectives that Nathan held the batteries up in one hand and gave '... the look of complete comprehension ... as if he understood." McEnroe then fired one last bullet through Nathan's head, according to the affidavit.

When asked why he shot Erica, Olivia and Nathan, McEnroe told detectives three times: "I didn't want them to turn us in," according to the affidavit.

Michele Anderson told investigators "it was a combination of not wanting them to have to live with the memories and not wanting there to be any witnesses."

Arraignment for the two was scheduled for Jan. 9.

Michele Anderson told detectives her brother, a carpenter, owed her money she had loaned to him years earlier, and that she was upset with her parents because they did not take her side. She also said her parents were pressuring her to start paying rent for staying on their property.

"Michele stated that she was tired of everybody stepping on her," the court papers say. "She stated that she was upset with her parents and her brother and that if the problems did not get resolved on Dec. 24, then her intent was definitely to kill everybody."

After the killings, McEnroe and Anderson first drove north toward Canada, then south toward Oregon arriving at neither destination, then decided to go back and pretend to discover the bodies, Satterberg said.

When they arrived Wednesday, investigators were already there. Detectives, curious that neither McEnroe nor Michele Anderson asked what had happened at the bustling crime scene, began questioning them and they eventually confessed, according to the documents.

Telephone calls to public defender George Eppler, Anderson's attorney, and Devon Gibbs, McEnroe's lawyer, were not immediately returned Friday.

Bigger problems in the world for someone to do this to their own family. Cowards. I'm at a loss for words.

Re: Details of the Wash St family murders

life's a bitch and then you die.

how do you comment on this? it mirrors every brutal slaying in the world's history. those not fit to live are unfortunately the ones that sometimes decide if you will or not.

i hope, for their family's sake, they are in a much better place than a world that cultivates these actions.

Re: Details of the Wash St family murders

how does it make sense in your mind to wish and hope for the same brutality to be inflicted on them?

"this is a terrible thing to happen, i hope it happens again."

Re: Details of the Wash St family murders

if life (oh wait, not life the USA-what a lovely country) was fair those murderers would be drawn and quartered and then crucified.

but it's not, so they'll be back on the streets shortly

Re: Details of the Wash St family murders

i highly doubt they'll be back on the streets after this.

again, if an eye for an eye were fair we'd still live under hammurabi's code.
