This article is very disturbing and shocking!! How is it possible that they would let this man be free to hurt someone else!!!

When the story of Dr. Amy Castillo was published here on LF about her X husband killing her children to get “revenge” on her I was HORRIFIED, I had never heard of such a thing happening! Dr. Castillo had tried repeatedly to tell the judge that her X had threatened to kill the children and the judge did not listen to her, and ordered UNSUPERVISED visitation, and the first visit, Dr. Castillo’s husband carried out his threat and killed the children.

I thought this had to be a ONE TIME THING that it might happen ONCE, but NOT again and again and AGAIN. But, I was WRONG. This sort of revenge murder by one psychopathic parent to punish the loving parent is NOT ALL THAT RARE and a case of it makes the news (that I see) on a fairly regular basis.

At the time I read the story of Dr. Castillo’s children being murdered, I literally was SICK for days. For some reason I can’t get the LF search engine to bring up the original article, but here is a subsequent article about Dr. Castillo.

I agree it is TIME for AMY’s LAW—here and in other places.

Wow. Apparently, there are so few murders in Canada (?) that when they get one, they don’t know how to deal with it. What is all this talk about what he “wants”? He wants to move out of Quebec and practice medicine blah blah blah. Who gives a flying f*ck what he wants? People in hell want ice water, too. Too bad, so sad!

And how creepy is it that the mother – who should probably be in a suicidal fog right now – is already talking about having more kids with her current partner? Is ANYONE grieving the loss of the kids? What a strange surreal case. It’s like no one is taking it seriously.

I am starting to see it as universal law – You Bring Them Into The World, You Have The Parental Right To Take Them Out!!!!!!

Milo,
Actually my parents would say something to that effect, to me.

They also have related a story about my father’s grandmother.
My father’s father liked to drink and ride his horse. (the equivalent of drunk driving at the turn of the century) He was a grown man when he tried to do that and his mother dragged him off the horse and beat him within an inch of his life. She said she’d rather kill him herself than let a horse kill him.

WTF? who says that?

Sky – Maybe this should be part of the speech pattern tests. Unreal.

That is so strange.

his sister has spoken out against his actions, and is ostracized by the family – it sound like the medical professionals will keep him in hospital, though, regardless of the apparent callousness of the review board. it sounds like his ex wife was not given the parameters for her presentation. the way this article is written … it seems like the journalist couldn’t quite make up their mind as to the perspective they wanted to write from/ or didn’t quite understand the real focus of the proceedings. i don’t have enough information to know if either of these conjectures are true.

this guy sounds extremely dangerous. i don’t doubt that he will try to kill his ex, her new partner, his sib and anyone who matters to any of them. he will always be an extreme threat to society and should never be allowed out of a psych institution.

In the capital city of my state, going back 10 years or so, there was a Sunday school teacher/decon going through an ugly divorce with his wife.

He not only showed up at the home where one of his daughters was participating in a sleep over, but he brought her home to strangle her and her siblings.

The news at that time said this man was all about control. It wasn’t even that he wanted the kids so much; what he wanted was to show his wife that he was the one in control. If I remember correctly, he committed suicide after killing his kids.

There was shock. “He was such a nice man. Always helping others.” Part of the thinking was if he was so active in the church, how could he be anything but a good person?

Those comments were always followed by, “I guess there was another side to him that we didn’t see.”

Her family wasn’t surprised. They knew what he was like.

The newspaper was strong about pushing “this guy had control problems.” Nobody was saying that he suddenly snapped.

G1S,

A minister of my acquaintance (one I particularly did not like because of his over bearing and narcissistic behavior toward me) was arrested in July for internet stalking of a minor (actually he was sending pictures of his “junk” to a 40 year old deputy not the 14 year old girl he thought he was LOL) and the church wanted to hush it up like a “dark secret” even though it was on the news and in the paper.

I went to the hearing for this man in court, I was the ONLY one there that he knew, the church people chose not to go and stand up to him, but to let him sneak off into court without anyone he knew there to shame him or embarrass him for what he had done.

Of course he wrote a “sincere” letter of apology to the churches at which he had preached—it was all a BIG MISTAKE, though it took place over a one year period of time.

I think those that cover up for the bad guys are just as bad, just as guilty as the actual criminal.
