Dupont de Ligonnes with his now deceased family An intelligent, hard-working man of noble stock with a loving, traditionalist Catholic wife shot his whole family and fled. He apparently feared his wife would divorce him if she found out that all his businesses had failed and that the elderly lady he slept with wanted her money back. His children were also thought that he was a successful man who made a lot of money. This is just another tragedy caused by unfair no-fault divorce laws. This man killed his own wife and children, committing a horrible crime, in order to save his honor. In my opinion, he does not deserve the same punishment as, say, a random serial killer. His acts are understandable to some degree. Of course, most likely he won't allow himself to be captured.
