Minor league baseball pitcher 'destroyed' after losing family in triple homicide

Minor league baseball pitcher 'destroyed' after losing family in triple homicide”

All three victims had been shot to death.

In a statement on Twitter, the Rays wrote, "We're with you, Blake". "You have changed my life forever, you are my reason why". He is being held without bail in Pittsylvania County, which is near Danville. Later on Wednesday, he emerged, completely nude, near a church, according to video captured by WSET.

The criminal complaint filed against Matthew Bernard, 18, said that police found two victims with visible gunshot wounds to the head as well as rifle shell casings near all three bodies. He eventually releases his grip after an officer approaches with a Taser and mace, and takes off once again.

Though they arrested Matthew Thomas Bernard for slaying three, the entire homicide incident has made the citizens speechless, who have been continuously lamenting over Blake Bivens' loss.

Bernard is being held in a local jail, where he is on suicide watch. It wasn't immediate clear if he had an attorney who could comment. No bond has been set.

"You don't wish this on any community, any family", Pittsylvania County Sheriff Mike Taylor said.

Bivens, 24, is a pitcher in the Tampa Bay Rays organization, and now plays for the team's Double-A affiliate, the Montgomery Biscuits, in Alabama.

The Biscuits said Thursday that a game scheduled for Saturday would be played as part of a double-header on Friday to give team personnel a chance to attend the funeral.

Blake Bivens published the tribute on Instagram, along with photos of him and his family together, just two days after his wife's brother allegedly carried out the gruesome murders.

Biscuits pitcher Ryan Thompson said Bivens struggled with the distance his baseball career created between him and his family.

A Virginia man appears to have used a.30-30 rifle and a sledgehammer in a deadly rampage that claimed the lives of a minor league baseball player's wife, 1-year-old son and mother-in-law, according to court documents released Thursday. "We put him in a auto to go to the airport and three minutes later we found out what happened". "We want to express our deepest condolences and sympathies to the Biscuits family".

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the A21 Campaign, a nonprofit organization against human trafficking, or God's Pit Crew, according to Joan's and Emily's obituaries. He described his mother-in-law, Joan Bernard, as "the best Nana this world has ever seen and I will never forget you".

"I finally understood what love was when you were born and I would have done anything for you", he said. "You loved your family more than anyone I've ever seen", he wrote. "Happy anniversary baby your [sic] the greatest wife and baby momma anyone can ask for!"
