The killings shocked the small town of Lake Peekskill, N.Y, leaving people to wonder why a nuclear engineer would strangle his daughter and wife -- who grew up in South Baltimore -- and then take his life. For relatives left behind, the reasons for the tragic double-murder and suicide may never be known. Kathy Lessard, 48, and her 14-year-old daughter, Linda, were found dead in their bedrooms this month by authorities after relatives reported losing contact with them for days. Steven Lessard, 51, a senior engineer at a nuclear power plant, was found dead at the top of the stairs.

Ryan Etzler sat silently, arms folded. At the other end, defending state champions Zac Yinger and Randy Owings, both seniors, sat side by side talking quietly among themselves.As the final seconds ran off with Horwat coming away with a 7-2 decision over Key's Tim Puckett, Yinger helplessly gazed at the scoreboard.

A strong wrestling statement was made by Francis Scott Key last season.The Eagles proved they belonged in the same class with perennial champion North Carroll.They nearly upset the Panthers in a duel for supremacy in Carroll County before 1,300 fans at North Carroll, and then surprised the Panthers in the 1A-2A regionals at Boonsboro with a first-place finish.But the big question now is whether Key can sustain that success a second straight season and finally overcome the Panthers.The question weighs on coach Bill Hyson and the Eagles because they've lost the four top weight wrestlers in their lineup to graduation.

In the title bout of the same event, he bounced DeMatha's third-ranked Matt Allman, 5-1, scoring all five points by using the cradle pinning move in the second period.

Francis Scott Key's Zac Yinger is far from conventional with his wrestling style.When the 145-pound junior takes to the mat, the Eagles' faithful are on the edges of their seats, the opponent of the night isn't quite sure what to expect and, on most occasions, Yinger comes away with a victory.Yinger's 15-1 record this season has him ranked fourth by the Maryland State Wrestling Association coaches' poll. He's a big reason why the Eagles are 7-0-1 on the season and ranked fifth in the metro area.
