Man Kills Family on Lunch Break


Michael Richardson of Newport, KY apparently went on a shooting spree when he came home for lunch killing his wife Joyce, his daughter Sunshine, 18, her 17-year-old boyfriend Phillip Leslie, and the family dog.

Richardson was working at Coral Graphics, a printing company, at about 3 a.m., saying he was going to get some lunch. Richardson went home where neighbors said they heard gunshots around 5:45 a.m.

Richardson's supervisor at the graphics company said he had gotten in trouble for messing up a print machine. Richardson surrendered after about a 2 hour standoff with police.

  Hang him  
I say hang or give him lethal injection. Dude killed 3 people for no reason..and the dog.

No need for taxpayers to support this guy while he sets in jail.

  probably printed newspapers  
Printing presses are always a stressful place- loud, repetitive dull work, lotsa weird chemicals all over the place. Too many graveyard-shifts for this guy, perhaps.

  The first sign a guy isn't thinking straight  
Is when he leaves for lunch at 3am.

I think he went home at 3AM found his 18 yr old daughter in bed w/ her 17 year old boyfriend and just got really really pissed off...

  Im actually glad.  
Poor girl stuck with such a ridiculous name. HE freed her, what's next, Phone-Line. Wait... I actually seen some one trying to name their kid Radiator.

  If it was just the two teenagers messing around...  
He wouldn't have killed his wife, would he?

He probably caught his wife and daughter tag teaming the guy.

  Wrong age  
The boyfriend is 16 according to the source.

  Please remove  
I know this is an old story but I wish it would be removed. Phil was my cousin and It made me sick to see the ignorance here.

perhaps you would like to clarify the "ignorance", so that everyone can be enlightened?
  by: m.i.a.elite     03/12/2010 11:38 PM     
The ignorance I spoke of was the comments on this article, not the article itself. Just so anyone who reads this knows the truth Phil and Sunny were on their way to work. They worked at McDonalds together and sunny had just picked Phil up from his home when she got a phone call from her father. He told her that her mom had an accident (at this point her mother was already dead) Her an Phil rushed to her home where they were shot as they entered the home. Michael Richardson was a sick, evil man.

I used to regularly eat lunch at around 3AM whilst working 3rd shift. The question for me is : what was the boyfriend doing over at 3am, being 17, and all that jazz :P

Ahh, I shoulda read that first, thanks for clarifying!
  by: NiftyPixel   03/11/2011 09:14 PM     
I knew Sunny and Phillip. I actually grew up with Phil. I went to school with both of them. For you people to sit there and talk about how they were "fooling around" and her dad got pissed. No. He called them home, and effing killed them. And for the record, people do get 3am lunch breaks if they work a third shift job. Not everyone works first and second shift. So please, don´t be ignorant.
