    "The Barry family was adventurous ? free spirits with an open couch for any guest. They were night owls, animal lovers, determined sellers of Girl Scout Cookies, and deep thinkers drawn to a session on a swing set.
    "This is a family who truly lived every day," Elizabeth Barry told an auditorium full of mourners on Sunday afternoon at Marshall School during a public funeral for her son and daughter-in-law, Sean and Riana Barry, and their two daughters, Shiway, 12, and Sadie, 9, who were killed by a relative in their East Hillside neighborhood home less than two weeks ago. The funeral drew nearly 300 people, including Duluth Police Chief Mike Tusken and Mayor Emily Larson alongside school-aged children and old friends from Fairbanks, Alaska, where the family spent years before moving to Duluth. Those closest to the Barrys filed into about a dozen center rows ? in front of the four caskets adorned with flowers and favorite things: unicorn stuffed animals for Sadie, Shiway's violin"

    DULUTH, Minn. (KBJR/Gray News) - A community in Minnesota is helping to remember a family of four who were shot and killed in their own home earlier this week. The Duluth Police Department said Riana Lou Barry, 44, Sean Christopher Barry, 47, Shiway Elizabeth Barry, 12 and Sadie Lucille Barry, 9, lost their lives in a murder-suicide situation, KBJR reported. Duluth Police Chief Mike Tusken said Brandon Taylor Cole?Skogstad, 29, a cousin to the children, was responsible for the shooting and killed himself in the incident. Cole?Skogstad was reportedly experiencing a mental health crisis and family members said he sent a message about harming himself and others in the family before the shooting. Neighbors who knew the family said they were shocked to hear what had happened on their street. ?It?s just really hard,? said Brianna Williams, a grad student who lives down the street. ?You think you?re safe in this community and it?s just crazy because I?m always chatting with the neighbors and everyone?s chatty.?

    He shot his family while they slept after posting a shocking message on Facebook saying he had made "the absolutely horrid choice," according to authorities. The victims have been named as Rian Barry, 44, her husband Sean, 47, and their daughters Shiway, 12, and Sadie, nine.
    In the Facebook post shared an hour before police believe the murder took place, Cole-Skogstad wrote that while he had "suffered many years of mental illness," he almost never got help because he felt he didn't "deserve it." Fox 21 reports that surviving family members confirmed Cole-Skogstad confessed on Facebook, as did chief of Duluth police Mike Tusken.

    This is very sad. I dont know what to say about his mental health. These days they can put you in a mental health facility against your will, but you can sign yourself out after a couple days.

    this is non relevent, but is bothering me. what is on that deer's head in that first pic?

    Those are his antlers. They don't always grow perfectly and it seems like they're just starting the regrowth since there is still felt on them.

    I figured that, but they look furry and like there is too many of them.

    Yep! And they shed them from time to time as well. Then they grow back and sometimes really funky like that guy. I think it's because of previous battles with other males, but I'm not sure. It's fascinating stuff. People even go out looking for shedded antlers.

    The guy in Montana that just recently lost his encounter with a Grizzley was antler hunting.
