    A friend of mine, (not real close but a friend none the less) and a fellow Cowboys fan, was brutally murdered in his home at about 4:30 Sunday morning.

    Which is very scary and unusual for the rural setting that we live in.

    Police say they do not think it was a burglary gone bad or a home invasion, which sounds like somebody targeted him for this.

    Throat sliced, and multiple stab wounds in the chest.

    Since he retired, he would call me every month or so out of the blue and act like he was T.O., or PacMan, or Tank, or Jerry.

    He might call and say, "Hey, this T.O., I can't catch the ball anymore, whats wrong with me, .. my coaches all hate me, and I think my QB might be gay, ... can you help me?"

    Or, "Hey, this is PacMan, I was making it rain and now everyone is mad at me, what did I do wrong?"

    "Hey, this is Tank, .. you want some guns, I got some guns, you need guns, I can get you all the guns you want. How many you want, .. wanna go shoot some guns with me?"

    He called once and said, "this is Jerry Jones, I'm building a new stadium, it's gonna be big, wait until you see it, .. you'll love it!, .. did I tell you it's gonna be big!, I'm rich *****!"

    He always made me laugh, .. I can't believe he's gone.

    Keep his wife and kids in your prayers.

    Like I said, not a close friend, not really my loss, .. but he has a wife, kids, grandkids.

    It can be a nasty world we share.

    Hopefully, the police will find those responsible and bring them to justice swiftly. Doing so will provide shallow comfort for the family at this time, but it will still help make some sense out of this needless tragedy. My prayers are with them.

    Yeah that definitely sounds like a revenge thing to me. Sad stuff. Hope they catch the person responsible.

    Sorry to hear this.
    This story is just weird. Where were his wife and kids when this was going down? You said he was retired, (from what?), so I guess the kid's moved out by now?

    TB, I had not heard anything about it since it happened, so I ask one of his co-workers.

    Turns out that they arrested his step-son, by his 4th wife, and two accomplices.

    The step-son waited out in the car and the two others, a guy and a girl did the dirty work.

    I guess the step-son is gay, and the victim gave him a very hard time about it when he was married to the Mom.

    The step-son was 12-15 when they were together, and is around 25 or so now.

    Sad thing.

    He was on his 5th wife, so he has children in their 30's.

    But his grandson was there when this happened. He is 7 or 8. It sounds like he kind of blamed himself, because he said things like, "I wish I would have got my BB Gun", and "I think I left the door unlocked".

    Poor little guy, it wouldn't have mattered if the door had been locked or if he had his bb gun or not.

    These people came to do something terrible and made sure that's what they did.
