Sick and Getting Sicker; Father Charged with Double Murder in Zion


Jerry Hobbs has been arrested for the slayings of his daughter Laura Hobbs, 8, and her best friend, Krystal Tobias, 9. Two counts of first degree murder.

Jerry just got out of prison for aggravated assault and I think they’re holding that against him,” Hollabaugh said. “I don’t think he did it.”

Hobbs has an extensive criminal history dating back to 1990 in Texas, including prior arrests for assault and resisting arrest, according to records kept by the Texas Department of Public Safety.

This is just a long pattern in a line of child murderers that have occurred in the last year. I had watched Hannity & Colmes last night as they were discussing whether sex offenders in the area might have murdered the two girls. However, the facts that the police were putting out did not seem to match what had happened in Florida or other cases this year.

Its appeared it is not the same and is even more incomprehensible as the father is being arrested for the murder of his own daughter and her friend. Just incomprehensible. I for one agree with Jayson at PoliPundit 100%. The only problem is JJ that you are going to probably have to wrestle me and a bunch more to get to the switch first. Its bad enough when we ask the question, who does this to people. However, the question is made even more mind blowing when it is asked, who does this to 8 & 9 year olds?
