The father and son who died in a January house fire in Glengary, W.Va., were both shot before the fire was intentionally set, the Martinsburg, W.Va. Journal reports.
Jan. 6: Officials call fire 'suspicious'
Father, son killed in Glengary house fire
Fire officials tell the Journal that the fire, in which 56-year-old David Cole Hutzler and his 9-year-old son, James, were killed, was set on purpose. Meanwhile, a state trooper also confirmed that both father and son had gunshot wounds, and that the incident is now being considered a homicide.
The fire broke out on Jan. 6 in a home in the 400 block of Apple Harvest Drive in Glengary, a small town located about 25 miles north of Winchester. At the time, the fire was deemed suspicious.
Upon further investigation, K9 units found traces of accelerants, which would be used to speed up a fire, in four places in the trailer.
MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - Authorities believe an Eastern Panhandle man shot his 9-year-old son to death and set their home on fire before killing himself last month in Glengary.
State Police Sgt. J.D. Burkhart tells media outlets there's no reason to think anyone else was involved in the deaths of 56-year-old David Cole Hutzler and 9-year-old James "Mack" Hutzler.
Both bodies were found in a rear bedroom, and autopsies later located gunshot wounds.
Burkhart says David Hutzler had seemed unstable to friends and families over the past few months. He'd recently told them that he and his son were going on a vacation and not coming back.
A memorial service for James Hutzler is set for Sunday at Brown Funeral Home in Martinsburg, the day after what would have been his 10th birthday.
OUTRAGEOUS ASSERTION THAT THIS WAS DONE DELIBERATELY
We all knew and loved "Hutz" on Benjamin Fulford's forum. He participated frequently and really wanted to make a difference in this world. His comments were funny and insightful. He loved my work and believed in what I'm doing.
He was one of those people who had "the burden of wisdom" -- the knowledge of the degree of harm that is being done in this world by Financial Tyranny.
Friends of his have spoken to me personally and said how dearly he loved his son. He would have done anything for Mackie.
Hutz knew from Fulford that we were very close to some major changes in the world -- which were extremely positive. That's why he forwarded me the links to this damning evidence on Ben's behalf.
All that being said, the police are literally expecting us to believe that he shot Mackie, lit his own home on fire with gasoline well enough to burn it beyond all recognition, and then went back and shot himself -- in the same room where Mackie was.
"We believe he took the life of his son and then set the fires and than took his own life," says Trooper Brand.
From the investigation and talking to people close to the victims the lead investigator, Trooper Brand says the father had a history of making remarks that seemed questionable and unstable.
"Spoke to a number of people that new the victims quite well. Received several accounts of the victim making suicidal comments and also several indicators that over the past couple years he had become mentally unstable," says Trooper Brand.
Trooper Brand says unless any new information is found, their investigation is complete.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
If you start learning the truth about Financial Tyranny, you will naturally be branded as making "questionable remarks" that seem "mentally unstable" by people who are unaware of the things you are about to read.
Given the fact that this one legal case could single-handedly destroy a conspiracy for global financial tyranny that goes back at least 300 years, do you really think this cover story is true?
If you're suicidal enough to kill your own son and kill yourself, why would you be so concerned about trying to destroy all the evidence?
Out of fear, skeptics will insist there is no connection between this bizarre double murder and the damning information Hutz passed along to me. I disagree.
Even in light of this blatant threat, I will not be intimidated. This tragic event only inspired me to do an even better job with the investigation.
You deserve to know the truth.
Our future depends on it.
