Another “nice guy” article that describes the killer as a “good tenant”:
The killer is described as somebody who: didn’t bother nobody, didn’t cause any trouble and was: a go-getter, always working, always doing something.
And the victim was described as: Well, she was lumped in with the killer as a good tenant who didn’t bother nobody.
Then this good tenant who didn’t bother nobody:
“Lee was always beating on his wife,” Komaromi said. “She came to my house a couple of times.”
In late January, Mr. Welch was charged with third-degree assault against his wife and, Komaromi said, there was an order of protection.
Mr. Welch violated the order and was charged Jan. 31 with felony criminal contempt and remanded to the Greene County Jail in lieu of $20,000 bail.
And this good tenant who didn’t cause any trouble:
Mr. Welch, 27, fatally shot his wife and a police officer who attempted to restrain him as he fled toward the Poughkeepsie train station midday Friday.
City of Poughkeepsie police officer John Falcone, an 18-year veteran of the police force, was killed moments after wresting a 3-year-old girl from the arms of Welch.
Just shocking that someone who beat his wife and violated a restraining order would kill her and a police officer, isn’t it? We’ve never heard anything like it before! (sigh) Why can’t these reporters talk to a domestic violence expert? Why do they refuse to see a husband that kills his wife as anything but “good”?
