Hey, DevoutCatholic, be careful about semantics.

What Charles Roberts obviously did was illegal, but if a non-convicted killer cannot be called a murder in formal English, then we must stick with killer.

DevoutCatholic, on this encyclopedia we use proper English. If calling Roberts a murderer is not proper English due to his suicide, then we cannot call him a "murderer." WhisperToMe 01:49, 5 March 2007 (UTC)

This is Merriam-Webster dictionary.

"1: the crime of unlawfully killing a person especially with malice aforethought2 a: something very difficult or dangerous <the traffic was murder> b: something outrageous or blameworthy <getting away with murder>"

What Roberts did was illegal, but I am not sure if it is proper to call him a murderer since he was never convicted.

Please refrain from making another reversion. The consensus seems to be against your proposal. WhisperToMe 06:37, 19 May 2007 (UTC)
