Over the last several years Silentlambs has reported on the consistent issue of JW fathers murdering their children.  In JW theology they are taught that life on this earth is corrupted by Satan. 

Everyone and everything is tainted and thus something to be avoided.  The only solution as directed by their theology is to escape to the “Paradise Earth” that God will provide after the end of the world in the immediate future. 

There are basically two ways to make it to the “Paradise Earth” one way it to wait for the ‘soon to come’ end of the world and survive into the “Paradise Earth” and the second way to is have an innocent death in this world to see a quick resurrection into the paradise earth. 

When JW father faces financial downturn, divorce, or other typical stresses that appear to make life hopeless the simple solution is to take the lives of their children.  By doing so, while seeing themselves as corrupted, they are providing the “escape” to a better world and in their minds actually helping their children no longer exist in Satan’s world. It is a classic case of theology gone wrong.  Sadly in many cases where children are murdered by fathers there is often a link to Jehovah’s Witness theology.  To see a further discussion of this issue and examples of this in years past see this link,

The children were found dead in their respective bedrooms, and the two adults were found together in the master bedroom, Richland County Sheriff's Department spokesman

Sgt. Curtis Wilson told the Charlotte Observer.

Each of the four was shot in the upper body and a handgun, the presumed murder weapon, was found near the father, Wilson said.

He said initial evidence suggested a domestic disturbance. Investigators are checking records to see if there had been any prior domestic violence calls made to the house.

The family has not been officially identified but Richland County property records show the Millers owned the house. Friends also identified the dead as the Miller family.

The children's grandmother went to check on the young family after she hadn't heard from her son for a number of days, Wilson said. She immediately called police after discovering them dead.

According to property records, the Millers bought the lovely home in the Riverwalk neighborhood in 2012.

Wilson said the forensic team were trying to determine when the four were killed.

Family friend Rachel Hinson, 25, described them as a good family and said the children were both under the age of five.

She told the Observer she had attended bible study at the Millers' home and went to Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses with them.

'It's confusing, and it's not understandable why something like that would happen,' said Hinson, who's grandmother lives near the home.

South Carolina is the worst of all 50 states when it comes to domestic homicides, according to a report by the Violence Policy Center in Washington.
