Well, this is terrible. Edward Davidson, the "Spam King" who was sentenced to 21 months in jail and ordered to pay $714,139 in restitution to the IRS for spamming and tax evasion, escaped from prison with the aid of his wife only to then turn a gun on her, his 3-year old daughter, a teenage girl and finally himself.

He and his family drove off from a minimum security prison (Driving out of prison? Yeah, that security sounds pretty minimal). He went for some cash and a change of clothes. Then things got ugly.

The guy looks like a psycho. I feel bad for his wife and children, that is a tragedy.

But is he a spammer who murders or a murderer who spams?

The two are equally offensive.

How sad, I mean why would this loser feel so compelled to kill his entire family because he was guilty of spamming, even if they were involved.
