A Family Erased: The Chris Coleman Story

Could a father strangle his wife and young sons just to keep a high salary and a sexy mistress? And if not, who did?

Coleman's parents

are in complete denial. Just another example of "not MY son" regardless of all the evidence stacked against him. Somewhere in all of this, there should be something called common sense: if someone was after his boss, why go after her bodyguard? Better yet, why go after the bodyguard's wife and two young children? Ditto for someone being after Coleman himself. It's ridiculous. The only one with a motive was Coleman. I'm sure this has been awful for his parents, but the kind of haughty, self-righteous denial intertwined with talk about God is pathetic. Poor Sheri and her little boys...they certainly deserved better than a cold-blooded, narcissistic killer for a husband and father.

Chris Coleman

He did it. There's no doubt. Too many things like the death occurring while he was there, the computer threats coming from him..on & on. He deserved the death penalty. But he really should be on death row, unable to leave but for one hr per 24hrs!!#

I have been a Christian for a long time, and I have absolutely no respect for the Colemans. How can they be concerned about whether Chris thought they were ashamed of him when their grandchildren were brutally murdered by him? How can they be in the courtroom when a sexing tape he made for Tara of him masturbating was shown, yet not condemn him? How can they talk about Shari being worldly when she was no longer that way, but their son was nothing but? Is Ron still a pastor? If so, why would anyone show up on Sunday? And don't talk to me about judging. This is the kind of thing that makes so many not follow Christ!

Edward Edwards

I believe that this was the work of Edward Wayne Edwards, a known serial killer.

He was arrested and convicted of murder just over a month after the murder of Coleman's family.

Edwards' mothers name was Myers, and he had a habit of leaving messages in red writing after his murders.

See the Facebook discussion group "Edward Wayne Edwards - Serial Killer" where this is being discussed.

I am all for parents being supportive but this borders on delusional. What do they think about the fact that the threatening emails were tracked to their son's laptop? How coincidental do they think that is? To me, that is extremely damning. And just like CE posted, there doesn't really seem to be much concern for their grandchildren. Last, I was really appalled at the extreme lack of consideration of Tara Lintz for an old friend by consorting with her husband. Did she really think this scenario was going to have a happy ending? Is having a married man and father break up his family to be with you really a happy ending? She thought absolutely little about anyone other than herself. For me, even though Chris was already feeling unhappiness in his relationship, I feel that she was probably the absolute catalyst for what occurred. Although he was fairly proud of his salary and working for the televangelist, he might have merely opted for divorce had he been assured that she wanted him solely for himself, even if he came without the lucrative paycheck. No, he must have felt that the job had to accompany him.

Do they ever say anything about their murdered grandchildren? We understand they were cruel to Sheri, but they seem over concerned about their son who took away their grandbabies lives. Never saw any grieving for the grandkids in these reports

I was thinking the same thing regarding the lack of concern over the grandchildren.
