Dad WINSELIO FORDE seems to have had a history of domestic violence (including beating his wife while she was pregnant) before deciding to murder his wife and their 1-year-old son. This is very often the case with these nacissistic murder-suicide dudes, that they have a history of abuse and treating intimates as things.

Report: Husband in Lehigh double homicide-suicide had history of domestic violence

Lisa Forde should have been at work today.
Instead, colleagues at Lee County EMS, where Forde was a medical technician, were planning the 33-year-old’s funeral.
Forde, her husband Winselsio Forde, 39, and their 1-year-old son Caleb died Thursday in what Lee County sheriff’s deputies believe was a double homicide-suicide.
Deputies are still investigating, and have not released the manner in which the family died. Their home on East Lake Drive was part of a neighborhood area cordoned off by crime-scene tape Friday. Two bouquets of bright carnations and daisies adorned a yard down the street from the house.
The couple had been plagued with domestic problems for at least the past year and a half, the situation coming to a head in April 2009, when a deputy arrested Winselsio for battery of his wife, who was 12 weeks pregnant at the time.
That doesn’t show in a picture Lisa Forde posted on the social media site Facebook. She beams at the camera as her husband cradles Caleb, dressed in white, his hair a mess of soft, black curls.
“I have realized that I can’t do everything, nor do it perfectly or please everyone,” Lisa posted on her Facebook profile. “Instead, I do what I can and enjoy life. I love my family!”
On Friday, her friends’ Facebook profile pictures quickly became snapshots of an EMS badge surrounded by a black band.
Family members are reeling from news of the deaths.
Raymond Davis, Winselsio Forde’s father and a respected local pastor who advocates against community violence, said the family was waiting for more information on the deaths. And Carla McIntrye, Lisa Forde’s sister, said her family was still processing what had happened.
Jay Anderson, a fire commissioner with the South Trail Fire District, remembers Lisa always smiling, a laugh teasing her lips. Anderson was her supervisor when she was pregnant, and he teased her about her maternity uniform.
“That shows a special person, especially when you deal with the public, treating their health,” Anderson said.
