From Katherine Sayre, staff reporter for the Press Register in Mobile, AL: Man says he threw tots off bridge.
An Irvington man has confessed to killing his four children by throwing them off the Dauphin Island Bridge into the waters below, authorities said Tuesday.I'm not a proponent of the death penalty, but I'm thinking I could easily be convinced this afternoon.
Lam Luong, 37, was arrested on four counts of murder and was being transferred to Mobile County Metro Jail late Tuesday evening, police said.
Bayou La Batre police said Luong confessed to killing 4-month-old Danny Luong, 1-year-old Lindsey Luong, 2-year-old Hannah Luong, and 3-year-old Ryan Phan on Monday morning.
As to why he tossed his children over the side of the bridge: "The acts appeared to be revenge aimed at Luong's wife after the couple had a dispute."
And, gentle reader, if you took offense at my comments about Cory Byron -- and I know that at least one anonymous reader did -- don't even come to Mr. Luong's defense. I don't want to hear it. Anonymous wrote, about Cory Byron who jumped off a bridge killing a police dog,
were you there? do you know the whole story? no. you dont even know him, his mental condition, or his motive. how could you say such horrible things about a person based on what you have heard from the media.... where they are great at making stories one-sided.Please, dear Anonymous, don't comment here coming to another sicko's defense. If you're going to comment, at least stand up and post in the clear... so then I can really bring on the ad hominem attacks.
