Sept. 10--Tara Wilson, sister of the Star City man accused of killing five people before killing himself, said she felt so threatened by nasty messa g es sent to her through her Facebook page that she deleted the account.
"It was really hateful and mean," she said Friday.
"We've all been a nervous wreck. ... I know what happened was wrong, but what more do they want? Shayne's dead. He's gone."
The family decided to keep all funeral arrangements private. They released a statement to The Dominion Post that shares their "deepest sympathy and prayers" for the families of the murder victims, and also remembers the Shayne they knew and loved, and notes his struggles with mental illness.
State Police said Shayne Riggleman, a 22-year-old motel clerk, shot and killed five people sometime Monday after noon at a house on Sugar Grove Road where all the victims lived.
Those killed were Katrina Hudson, 22, who was pregnant; her fiance, Robert Raber Jr., 30; her brother, Kevin Hudson, 17; the Hudsons' mother, Karin Richardson, 50; and Richard- son's husband, Charles Richardson III.
Police say Riggleman's rampage also included running over a Pennsylvania woman after his vehicle rear-ended hers, and shooting a gas station clerk in an attempted carjacking.
Finally, he shot himself as police approached his vehicle on a Kentucky roadside.
The gas station clerk, Donnie Nichols, of Newton, remained hospitalized Friday, but he is no longer in intensive care, according to a nurse at Charleston Area Medical Center-General Hospital.
No condition report was released on the hit-andrun victim Sidney Bush, 58, although it is believed that she is in intensive care at Uniontown (Pa.) Hospital.
A State Police representative said any new infor mation would be released by press release and spokesman Sgt. Michael Baylous did not return a call for comment in time for this report.
