    My wonderful, calm, peaceful, patient and loving brother Christopher Melling was found dead along side his 2 year old daughter, Aimee Melling, last week in Burwell, Nebraska. The nearly immediate ruling was "murder-suicide" and the word spread like wildfire through the area and although the investigation is said to be ongoing, I am still combating the irresponsible wording of the local county attorney, Dale Crandall, in correcting things and ensuring the investigation is done thoroughly and correctly. With an astounding level of support in the local and regional community, nobody believes my brother could possibly commit this crime...however there is serious question with regard to the complete innocence of his wife (and mother of the child) although she has never been pegged a suspect. In an ill relationship with her on the rampage, jailed only nights before their murder, she was booked for domestic assault and menacing threats. The day after the bodies were found she bought cleaners at the store and soaked their blood from the floor and walls...then moved back in...there is also strong talk in the community that she has a new boyfriend. She is and has always been manipulative, aggressive and threatening to my brothers family and many around her. There is much hearsay and many rumors but my brother has been wrongly deemed guilty while this investigation continues...my following is primarily through facebook to gain momentum to support my brother, but my story has been aired on all major local news channels and newspapers with response from my family over the ongoing incident. We want every detail to be inspected and every stone unturned to find out what really happened to our beautiful 2 year old niece Aimee and my wonderful brother Christopher Melling.
