We are certainly seeing an uptick in public murder-suicides and related forms of domestic violence.
Another such shooting occurred on Sunday, December 2, 2012, in the First Presbyterian Church in Coudersport, Pennsylvania, around 2 p.m.
Pennsylvania State Police report they have the suspect, a elementary music teacher from Coudersport School District, Greg Eldred (pictured above), in custody.
Fifty-three-year-old Eldred allegedly entered the church and then allegedly fired two shots at his ex-wife, Darlene Sitler, who was a long time music teacher at the Northern Potter School. She died instantly.
The accused shooter was subdued by members of the congregation until police arrived.
Witnesses say that Eldred was pacing in front of the church for a while before entering.
Enki, who passed along this news, noted, "A teacher shot a teacher in church...in CouderSPORT. Greg = "watchful, alert." Eldred = "battle counseler," "wise advisor," "old wise ruler" (King resonating), or "wise or red haired man."
Coudersport is known within Fortean circles as a hot spot of strange phenomena, especially regarding reports from the nearby Black Forest. For example, I once was traveled to the area to be interviewed by a Discovery Science youth-oriented program, detailing mysteries of the Black Forest.
