There have been a couple other pastors that have murdered. These are just a couple I came across this year and posted. What makes a person, especially a person who should know the Word, go off their rocker and do something so horrific? Lucifer!
KELOWNA, B.C. — A Canadian man that had aspirations to be a pastor has been charged with second-degree murder after his wife and two young daughters were recently found dead in their home.
Jacob Forman, 34, made his first court appearance on Thursday after authorities found his wife of ten years, Clara, and their daughters Karina and Yesenia, 7 and 8 respectively, murdered in the couple’s Kelowna home on Dec. 17.
The motive is not yet known and Forman showed no emotion during his hearing, according to Global News. The bodies of the victims were not found until two days after the incident.
Forman, who worked as a supervisor for a plumbing and heating company, met his wife in Mexico where he was attending a Christian retreat in studying to be a pastor. The two married four months later, and Clara moved to Canada, where she became a fitness instructor.
“She was a wonderful, wonderful mother, wonderful associate and wonderful person,” coworker Amanda Thomson told reporters, adding about Forman’s daughters, “They were sweethearts, just lovely little girls and we’re always going to remember and cherish them like that.”
According to Global News, Forman volunteered at the church he attended and served as the small groups coordinator.
The tragedy came as a shock to those in the community as the quiet family seemed to be happy.
“They were just very nice people,” neighbor Gail Baran told reporters. “You would never ever think that [such a thing could happen in] that family. They were very down to earth people. He would go to work everyday and appeared to be such a gentleman. It’s a shock for all of us here.”
Forman also posted happy photos and videos to his social media page, such as footage of Karina as a baby enjoying her birthday cake, according to CTV News.
