Melissa Williams Murder-Suicide Victim (McKinney Tx)

Texas News Blog: 36-year-old Melissa Williams was the victim of a murder-suicide yesterday in McKinney, Texas. According to police, Williams was shot inside her car and killed by her estranged husband, Cedric McFail, around 5:30pm on Thursday. She was shot near the Discovery Learning Center located in the 1800 block of W. White Avenue. Police report that after murdering Williams', McFail drove to a nearby home in the 2700 block of Frontier Lane and after a brief conversation with a person there - turned the gun on himself and fired. Melissa Williams' children were inside the car when she was fatally shot, but thankfully they were physically unharmed. Texas Child Protective Services took the children into their temporary custody until permeate arrangements can be made. It is known that Williams and McFail were involved in a nasty divorce. Sadly, here is another case where the wrong person in a murder-suicide was shot first. If a person wants to kill themselves, then so be it. However, I do not understand what kind of control issues must be rooted in the brains of folks who feel like they must play God and take the life of someone else, before committing suicide. Those kids are going to need a lot of therapy.
