    What a coward!!!!!! Who does he think he is to get out of this so easy by killing himself. Those poor babies will go EVERY DAY without their mother and will think about what happened every day. Apparently the guilt was too much…..may he rot in h#))!!!

    Looks like he gave himself the appropriate punishment. This way he will not be given time in a mental health facility or sent to prison for a few years and then let out. Apparently he couldn't handle what he had done. You probably won't agree, but I feel that Danielle got justice even if she is not here to see it. And hopefully some day her kids will feel that he got what he deserved, by taking their mother's life. May you spend eternity in hell Scott !!!!!
