Local Couple Receives Just Punishment

This from the Arizona Republic:

A Mesa couple suspected of molesting a 10-year-old girl has been found dead, the apparent victims of a murder-suicide.

Paul and Myrtis Gauthreaux were found Thursday morning on U.S. 60 in Gila County near Globe in their parked car.

The Gila County Sheriff's Office is investigating...

They were found holding hands and with a suicide note explaining their motive, a Gila County Sheriff's Office spokesman said. The spokesman declined to elaborate on the note's contents.

The couple was being investigated under the "innocent images" program operated by the FBI. The program seeks to investigate cases of child pornography on the Internet.

Fox News is a pretty polarizing subject. I won't go into details about Bill O'Reilly and my thoughts on him, but in this case, he did society a favor:

Paul and Myrtis Gauthreaux were wanted by the FBI for engaging in sexual conduct with minors and appeared on a segment of the show that profiled alleged child pornographers.

After seeing the O’Reilly Factor segment, a relative of the couple called them before notifying the FBI of their whereabouts. When federal investigators arrived at their home, the Gauthreauxs had fled to an undisclosed location. The FBI said Paul Gauthreaux shot his wife dead before turning the gun on himself.

The child victim that the Gauthreauxs photographed in online photos was later identified and found safe.

Enjoy hell guys. Since I am posting Bloodhound Gang lyrics in the Man vs. Wild post, I will add the following for this:

  • But if I go to hell well then I hope I burn well
  • I'll spend my days with J.F.K., Marvin Gaye, Martha Raye, and Lawrence Welk
  • And Kurt Cobain, Kojak, Mark Twain and Jimmy Hendrix' poltergeist
  • And Webster yeah Emmanuel Lewis cuz he's the anti-christ
